Cruelty-free polish: Deborah Lippmann

August 14, 2017


I’m not sure if I’ve talked about nail polish before on the blog. Maybe it requires a bit of a back story. I specifically remember the day I started biting my nails. It was in the 4th grade, and I had to answer a question on the board at school. I think it was math […]

I tried Wild Fern’s Manuka Honey products

March 15, 2017


I am going to admit something: I’m not really one to pay attention to beauty products. I don’t read magazines and I don’t own a TV. There’s not a lot of advertising that reaches me lately, especially when you consider the language barrier: my Japanese sucks, so even the ads on the train don’t really […]

I was going to bitch about what’s been going on with my hair these past few weeks, but…

January 25, 2017


then I found this extremely helpful post that made it all easier to understand. As it turns out, I’ve chosen to dye my hair the most difficult color to maintain. So yeah, I washed my hair a week later and lost that amazing, deep grey I’d finally accomplished. But at least on the upside, I […]

(mis)Adventures in hair dyeing

January 11, 2017


The long slog to grey. As you may have read last ¬†year, I tried to dye my hair grey. Not ALL of my hair, mind you, just the ends. I’m a big fan of ombre as it’s low maintenance and I don’t have to really worry about the upkeep or doing my roots. So when […]

I tried: some products not tested on animals, and not sold in China!

January 9, 2016


I’ve been meaning to write about these for a while, but have been relatively busy posting OTHER things and running around, preparing for a trip at the end of the month. I think I might travel too much. LUSH: Santa’s Lip Scrub This stuff is just GD amazing. I got it in a gift basket […]

I tried: a few products that are NOT tested on animals, but are sold in China. Blame Sephora.

December 26, 2015


And you know what? I don’t even really want to review them, or mention them, because no press is bad press. NOT testing on animals isn’t enough. I’m going to mention them at least, since I went through the trouble of finding the images online and posting them here, but I think this might be […]

I tried: LUSH’s Light Yellow foundation

December 16, 2015


I’ve been trying to find an easy replacement for my Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Foundation. I love the stuff, but Sephora won’t ship it overseas, so I have to either buy it while I’m in the US (which hasn’t happened since July 2013), or have a friend/family member ship it to me from the states. […]
