Review for up & up Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover - 6 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Purchased at: Target
A perfectly serviceable, run-of-the-mill nail polish remover! My method is to soak a cotton pad in this nail polish remover, rip it in 10, press them on my fingernails, wait and buy and slid the polish right off. Flawless method and this product works well for it.

Review for: Black Tea Blackberry more...
Truly my favorite product in the world. Abandon me on a desert island with just this and some books, I’ll be fine. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm is a not waxy, not sticky, very reparative lip treatment for everyday use. It gets me through drying summers in the desert and chapping winters in the Northeast. Usually buy the mint version, but the black tea and blackberry is very pleasantly scented for the autumn season.

Review for SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Shea Butter Lip Balm - 6 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Recently purchased at TJ Maxx. I love tube lip balms (as opposed to tinned) for their usability. And I love Shea Moisture hair and body products. Unfortunately, the African Water Mint Lip Balm fell short. The texture is very thick and feels like applying glue to cracks, rather than deeply hydrating the lips. It also goes fast, and feels like it requires reapplication every 10, 15 minutes.

I’ll keep it by my bedside for pre-sleep application, but don’t imagine repurchasing.

Review for bareMinerals Seamless Buffing Blush With Antibacterial Charcoal - 6 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Finally, a reason to use something besides my fingers to apply foundation! This brush is so soft— like wintertime blanket soft— but no fall-out to report after about 10 uses.

However, as a skin care junkie, I’m a bit skeptical about the degree to which the ‘antibacterial charcoal’ part lends itself to clear skin. The affect is, at best, minimal.

Review for: bareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Anti-Redness Mattifying Primer more...
Although the anti-redness aspect of this primer didn’t matter too much, the mattifying power is very strong! I used it with both the Bareminerals powder foundation and The Ordinary’s liquid foundation, to good effect. It’s nonclogging and pretty spreadable, so I’ll use it often.

Review for UNIQLO - 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Half my closet consists of their excellent Hana Tajima and Ines de la Fressange collaborations, which always sell out quickly.

A huge amount of choice, so you an pick up a pack of solid socks and undies, or an interestingly cut blouse for the office or puffer coat for winter sports.
Review for American Apparel - 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Happy the brand is back sans it’s predatory founder. Buying clothes made by people receiving fair pay just feels better.

Great place for basic jeans, tees and sweats, sexy cut dresses and swimwear in interesting color ways.
Review for TJ Maxx - 8 months, 2 weeks ago
If you have patience to dig through racks upon unorganized racks, you’ll find fantastic high street deals at TJ/TK Maxx. Ask what days new stock come in and go in the morning.

A go-to place for home goods and reduced price beauty and random foodstuffs, less so for electronics and tech.
Review for Lulus - 8 months, 2 weeks ago
If you’re craving Revolve and Reformation, it-girl styles at a more affordable price point, look to Lulu’s and their huge collection. Options for casual wear, as well as sexual occasions: dances, weddings, etc. According to wedding blogs, a lot of thrifty brides purchase gorgeous, ridiculously affordable white dresses here!

Carries brands like Levi’s, Free People, and BCBG.
