What’s in my purse?

So over on Pemberly Jones Pam posted a photo a couple days ago of her purse dump.
 I thought it would be totally fun to start a natural beauty tag for what we carry around in our bags day to day. Me, I’m a total lip product hoarder. 

See the photo below for evidence. 



3 lip balms, 2 tinted balms, 2 glosses, 4 lipsticks, 2 stains and 2 matte lip pencils later…

*Ahem* My name is Alexis and I have a lip product problem. 
In my defense I leave the house sans lips (mr.bunny declares them “sticky”) so I like to have a variety to choose from once I get to work. 

So what’s in your purse? Use hashtag #greenbeautypurse and tell me.

I love this blush! This is a really vibrant “I just had a great workout” color. Kind of a pinky coral cool. 
It’s super smooth in texture and wears beautifully through my work day. This color is limited in a set I got at Sephora.

I got a sample of this in my last Spirit Beauty Lounge order. It’s a rich berry stain that leaves lips glossy and hydrated. It’s been my go-to for fall lip color. I’m getting the full size for sure.

In all seriousness, I think this is my holy grail of Argan Oils. This is the sample size of oil but I know that I have the full size on my wish list. It has an amazing consistency and smells incredible. I don’t know what it is about this one but my other argan oils haven’t smelled nearly as lovely. Seriously love for this here. 

Speaking of amazing smelling things this is divine! I got this in my Goodebox last month and it has steadily become a favorite night treatment for my skin.  To me it’s slightly richer than my Argan oil making it great for a night oil. It sinks into my skin overnight making me feel glowing and gorgeous in the morning.

This is a great color! It’s blackened brown with a gray tinge. Fantastic longevity for a cream shadow. I mean girls night out longevity. It totally surprised me with that. I love wearing it smudge along my lash line or as a winged liner. 

This is my newest find but I love it already. I’ve been having a few breakouts due to the temperature change and was looking for a lighter weight concealer than my rms or Vapour concealers. This is a very thin almost watery texture but has amazing coverage. I only need the tiniest dot on a blemish to make it disappear.


Finally…

So I’m finally getting life back in order and finding some time to start blogging again. As to where I’ve been my work has been crazy busy and I had a terrible skin issue that I was trying to work out. Thankfully all that’s being settled and I’m back with exciting news.

I’ve been featured on No More Dirty Looks!!! I am so excited I could hardly stand it. And I was featured on my birthday! How cool is that?!
Here is the link to the post : Alexis’s Morning Hair and Skincare Routine…Exposed!

I’ll post a review on my new Tata Harper Trio as well as the Kahina Giving Beauty Mask.

Also would you be interested in a video of me doing my normal morning makeup routine? Or video reviews of product? I’m getting a new computer that will have fancy new software for me to play around with so let me know.

Thanks for your patience while I get back up and running!

My Favorite Face

I have to tell you, I have two faces. Now don’t worry I’m not a circus act.
Let me explain.
At work I sell a different makeup line that what I tend to use on my days off. My day off face just wants to be relaxed and pretty but not trying too hard. My work face has to last through 8 hours of indoor heating, mag lamps and steam. It’s got to have staying power. But more on my “work face” in another post. This is about my twice a week favorite face. The products I tend to use on my day off help me achieve that “no makeup” look while still looking put together. These products together make me feel glowing and awake but not over done.

RMS Beauty




One of the first things I purchased when I got into trying to find the most amazing natural makeup and skincare was the rms beauty “un” cover-up*. This is a product I love and adore. It feels like you are doing something nice for your skin every time you put it on.

The color I ordered was “11”. At first I wasn’t sure that it would be quite pale enough. I’m very fair but with a bit of a warm or yellow undertone. I find most products designed for pale skin are far too pink to look natural on me. I was pleasantly surprised when my order from SpiritBeautyLounge.com came and the color seemed perfect!

The consistency is thick, not unlike a concealer but blends seamlessly with the texture of my skin. At first I used it sparingly like a concealer hiding under-eye circles, covering up odd blemishes and redness. Now I use it often as a both a concealer and foundation. Applying a thin layer to areas where I need only minimal coverage (cheeks and forehead) and building up the coverage where I need it ( dark circles, redness).

This in my opinion would be best for people with normal to dry skin. Oilier people may find it a bit too cloying on the skin. The coverage is light to medium depending on how you apply.

Below are some photos of the product. Now I have used this most recent one for several months so forgive its state but I tried to make it as presentable as possible.

Beautiful packaging. Nice sturdy glass container.

Clearly a well loved product
