Toss or Trash: November 2014 Part II

I’m clearing out and making room and, I love it! I’m finishing up lots and lots of products. These nail polish remover pads from L.A. Colors were awesome!…

Even though it states that they are strawberry scented, these still smell like nail polish remover. But, if they are not the hardest working polish remover pads, I don’t know what is! I actually had to use about two to three per removal only because they are rather small but, this formula didn’t dry my cuticles out one bit. I’ll pick up more when I can find them.

With no doubt, my hair has gone through a huge change since leaving Florida and moving to Colorado. I’ve been trying lots of different moisturizing products in my quest for soft tresses….

I was lured into thinking Tresemme’s Liquid Gold Shine Therapy would make my hair shimmery-golden. Not really. And, it didn’t give me any moisture either. The only thing it did do was keep my hair from becoming overly frizzy. However, Bath and Body Works White Citrus Shower Gel is still one of my favorite BBW fragrance. And, their washes never dry out my skin. That one I’ll replace.

I was giving this Avon lipstick sample with my last order of Moisture Effect Eye Makeup Remover (one of my very favorite eye makeup removers and I highly recommend). Take a look at what the sample looks like after just ONE try…

The product is so soft that it just mushed up! Trust me, I’m not a Messy Marvin with my makeup but this was ridiculous.  I think the name is ‘Pink Flush’ but I don’t know which line it is from. As much as I love the color, this lippie not only had a problem staying in the tube, it roamed around my lips as well! Too messy so, I threw it away.

Earlier this summer, I got this free sample of Urban Decay’s Vitamin Infusion Complexion Prep Spray. Sadly, I just didn’t find that this spray added anything to my skin. My pores didn’t seem to be minimized nor did my makeup become less shiny throughout the day…



My makeup didn’t seem to, noticeably, last longer, either. If you have used this, I’d love to know what your experience has been.

I’m really on a roll using up products. I’m looking for bottles and tubes that are almost used up and grabbing them to finish eyeing a spot for them in the Toss or Trash feature. In my quest to find such items, I discovered a bottle of Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength LIne-Reducing Concentrate I had. I have just finished up my last bottle and knew I trip to Kiehl’s was in order. However, finding this backup bottle saved me almost $60 that I didn’t need to spend! Plus, I found a couple of bottle of Suave body lotion that I caught on sale earlier this year so I didn’t need to replace any of those.

What was the last beauty product you used up?

Urban Decay: Foxy Four-Way Eyeliner Pencil Set

The Urban Decay eyeliners are legendary in their colors and wearability. After 3 years of reading about UD eyeliners being the best EVER, I finally caved in and got this limited release set. It came out last year as a dual-end pencil eyeliner collection named Foxy Four-Way Double Ended Eye Pencil Set…

If these liners were truly waterproof, they were going to stick with me ALL day long. I was ready to put them through the loops.

A set of 4 pencils and 8 dynamic colors. Here are the colors…

It really was difficult for me to choose which one to try first. And here’s why…

Mega swatch day 101They are ALL beautiful. And, true to all that I was reading on other beauty blogs, their staying power was as good as the smell of fried fish in the house on Fridays.

I am enjoying using the UD eyeliners and continue to stay in awe of the superior staying power of these shades. Truly, after I tested these on my hand, they were still there until the evening when I washed my face. I had to have washed my hands a half dozen times before then and there wasn’t even a smudge from the eyeliners. Sold? I am!

This holiday season, Urban Decay has out yet another pencil eyeliner set. I haven’t decided if I need it…so far. However, if you’d like to take a look at it, check it out here on Urban Decay’s website. The reason I’m tempted, this new set has FIVE new shades. Ohhhh!!!

I purchased my Urban Decay set at Ulta. However, you can purchase them directly from UD’s website.

What’s your experience with Urban Decay’s eyeliners?
