Replace or Reject: The Very Late April Edition

Quick, before folks from the Hoarders Show come to my house, I want to get rid of these products. Never mind the stuff I have bought since and have taken these products’ place.

Moving along…This is a Flower Beauty shadow I got from Walmart, where it is an exclusive. I got one to try out but, I found all the shade selections to be very pretty. Here, is Orchid-ing Around…

While it is a very pretty color, this type of shadow creases like nobody’s business on me. If you have ever tried L’Oreal’s Infallible shadows, this is just like it. Maybe a bit creamier. I tried an Infallible shadow and promptly returned it. I remember it distinctly because it was the very first time I had ever returned a beauty product.

Along with the Flower shadow, I found another Chapstick that has to go. There are way too many other softer (SoftLips) balms out there. And, here’s a Replace: Reviva Labs 5% Glycolic Acid Cream. I did a review on this product here. It is all that, seriously. I can’t wait to replace it.

You can see how serious I am about Reviva Labs Cream. I took a Q-tip to swab out every last bit of this awesome cream…

Along with the Glycolic Acid Cream, I also used Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Not only did I fall in love with this one, but my husband got on the band wagon with me. When it was gone, he asked me where can we get some more of this. I will be getting a replacement of this one too…

You know, I sure in the heck have a lot of ChapStick brand of balms to get rid of in my house. Seriously. I thought I’d like Cake Batter but I did not. I thought it smelled weird.

The Argan Oil Styling Cream is a replace because this stuff made my hair feel healthy. And, this IS one product that smelled good. I can’t say that this styling cream helped to style my hair but it make my curls less frizzy without weighing down my locks.


I have a huge makeup artist case that I have fun going through once in a while. Actually, I have been going through it looking for things to remove to make room for newer, more loved products. The EyeStudio in Ivy Icon, by Maybelline, is a reject. I thought it was pretty at the time I bought it. But, the color fell flat when applied. I didn’t bother to try and make it work though. It just wasn’t pretty when I put it on.

The two shadows below the EyeStudio shadow are from Jesse’s Girl…

Cream shadows and I do not get along most of the time. Sadly, that is what happened with these two. Crease City. I have tons of eye primers. I like to have an assortment of them. In fact, the makeup company I own has a great eye shadow primer. But, these cream shadows just don’t work for me.

I feel relieved, even freer, to blog about these April Rejects/Replacements. I could tell you that May’s edition is forthcoming. But, I worry that the moving crew from Hoarders may beat me to it.

Have you had more rejects than replacements lately?

Why In The World Would You Put Chicken Poop On Your Lips?!

This is me with Chicken Poop on my lips…

notd poop lots of swatches haul 075Wait! Before you click out, I can explain!!!

I found ‘Chicken Poop: Lip Junk’. Wouldn’t that make you curious?…

So, before you run away in disgust, check out these fine ingredients…

So, yes…I would recommend ‘Chicken Poop’ to you!!

I found this at The Christmas Tree Shops for $2.59. I even got my friend one for Christmas. She said she liked it too.

Two, last reasons to like ‘Chicken Poop’: Their 800# has POOP in it and, they make this stuff in Wichita, Kansas. That’s were I went to college! Check out the other fun stuff they have here.
