September Empties and Discards

I didn't do a great job of taking pictures of purchases this month (again; I hope this doesn't become an ongoing problem...), but my empties are so numerous that it's probably for the best not to have more to write about! I went through my makeup stash and gathered up all the stuff I don't use/want, as well as all that had gone bad, so there's a number of things from that. I also finally got around to ridding myself of all the nail treatments/base/top coats that are too old or didn't work––I'd been holding on to them with the intention of someday doing a round-up post, but it looks like that's not gonna happen so I'll just give quick notes here, which will accomplish the same task without the added (self-)expectation of being super thorough. I still need to go through my polish stash, and I'm in the process of sorting through and labeling all my perfume samples, so I'm sure there will be more for the discards pile come the end of October, but for now, here's the sitch:

The Empties
I finished MAC Matchmaster! Though there's still a little left at the bottom, but the pump won't get it and it's too much effort for me to try to pour it out (I'm a terrible reductionista, I know!). I haven't rebought it yet, though I might––I'm currently considering Kat von D Tattoo Lock-It Foundation after reading a few reviews from people with skin similar to mine who praised its longevity, pale skin options, and oil control, but I'm holding off on that until my current combo of Revlon Colorstay liquid (mixed with primer, all over) and Revlon Colorstay whipped creme (applied with buffing brush on spots that need more coverage) runs out.
The empty MUAC French Green Clay mask sample. Shan't be buying again (for why, see here).
I also finished my tube of Herbal Essences Totally Twisted conditioner; the boy bought me a huge one back east that I brought home with me (Jet Blue has free checked bags, y'all!) and I also saw Suave Captivating Curls conditioner at Fred Meyer, which I snatched up as well––don't know how long it will remain on shelves!
Finally got done with this Body Shop Mango body butter, yay! I used it as hand cream at night and a couple times on my legs. Very mango-y and rich; too moisturizing for my body, but it worked really nicely on my hands. I would happily use it again, but I won't be rebuying because I have a bajillion and a half body butters and hand creams left to use.
I received some sample packets of Eve Lom products when I went to Barneys with L, including this Rescue Mask. I'll have a full review up at some point (I plan to review all the Eve Lom stuff together, and I haven't used half of them yet, so it'll probs be awhile), but for now, let me say: I really, really liked it, and depending on how my skin goes, I may consider forking over the $50 for a tube.
I love the Meow concealer (in Frisky Siamese, this time) samples for being portable, generous, and effective. They give me great coverage, though I noticed that it may be a little grey for my current skintone, weird. I get pretty comparable coverage from the Colorstay combo described above, augmented with NYX HD Concealer (review to come, eventually), so I don't feel the need to order more samples, but I'm sure I will again someday.
And lastly, my beloved Armani Eyes to Kill mascara. It lasted me a good 4 months of daily (sometimes twice-daily) use, and I managed to drag it out for another month after that, though it started flaking towards the end there. I adore this mascara, as regular readers know, but for $30, it's a major purchase. For now, I've found a mascara that's almost as good for 1/5 the price, so I'll be sticking with that (and my numerous mascara samples) for the time being.

The Full-Size Rejects
All the items above were not thrown out, but rather stuck into my giveaway drawer to foist off on friends.
I decided I was tired of WNW Petal Pusher taking up space on my vanity and offering so little in return, so away it went!
The Sally Girl eyeshadow was okayish, though quite sheer, and with my Inglot, I don't really need a blurple anymore.
And, these two Tarte LipSurgence pencils. The hot pink one barely got used, because I didn't find the color flattering, and while the coral one looked nice, I have more moisturizing, less gritty alternatives now, so adieu.

The Sample Rejects
Now, the Make Up For Ever HD primer is not really a reject, per se; it did help keep my oiliness at bay, but it wasn't nearly as effective as my Cover FX Clearprep FX, so I figured there was no point in finishing it.
The Benefit Porefessional, however, is a true reject, as I tried it and found it broke me out (surprise!). But it's a hefty little sample tube, so it's going in the give-away drawer. (Pretend that the perfume vial up there is Porefessional, because I was too lazy to rephotograph with the right products. Bad blogger, I know.)
The tiny button sample of Perfekt Lip Perfection Gel in Melrose was so cutely packaged, but such a fail in product. The color made me look dead (too nude, not enough rose––so much for all the shades being "universally flattering"), and the texture was quite slimy and definitely not moisturizing. Toodle-oo!

The Nail Treatments
These are some of the many, many nail treatments/base coats/top coats I've tried over the past year. From left to right:
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails treatment, which does help strengthen nails, but does not extend the wear of polish. One of the few that worked, just not well enough.
Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle, which I have a newer bottle of since this one got too thick. I find it helps my nails grow faster, but they don't grow stronger, so it's not a great solution. It does get along really well with Zoya polishes, though!
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, which I've also rebought. This is a thick fast-dry top coat, much like Seche, but unlike Seche, it doesn't smell terrible or cause shrinkage. It doesn't dry super fast, but my nails are pretty much functional after 10 minutes.
Nailtiques Formula 2 Plus, which is the most effective nail strengthener I've used. I rebought it at the beginning of the month (my nails stayed good for a couple months, but they've not been so happy lately), brought it back east with me because travel is always terrible on my nails, and apparently lost it somewhere in New York. I forked over the $10 for a new bottle again, though I wasn't happy about it! But seriously, this stuff is great, and the tiny 0.25 oz bottle lasts 3+ months with bi-daily use. I found it got thick before it got empty, so I definitely recommend getting the little bottle.
The infamous Seche Vite, which I found to be extremely fast-drying but stinky and it always, always caused shrinkage, even when I applied it on extremely wet polish. Lots of people love it, though.
Seche Rebuild strengthener/base coat, because I saw a review of it on KarlaSugar. It was fine, but nothing remarkable, and it didn't make much difference in the condition of my nails. My nails are a complete disaster, though, so keep that in mind when reading any of these!
Orly Nailtrition. Found a tiny adorable bottle of this at Sally's on clearance, so decided to pick it up. Another one that didn't make much difference in my nails, though that may be due in part to the fact that I didn't use it as religiously as I should have. I liked the light shimmery pink, at least for the first couple days, but I didn't like that you're supposed to reapply every day for a week before removing, because a) I'm terrible at doing things on a daily basis, and b) it started to look really pink and frosty after too many layers.
INM Out the Door, which is a thin fast-dry polish, better for non-glitters/anything that has texture. I actually really liked it and found it to be very fast-drying, but it didn't help my polish last any too long. Even so, I would rebuy.
Color Club clear polish which came with one of the sets I got. It's a clear polish. I have no need for clear polish. I think I used this as top coat on my nail sticks, but really have no further need for it.
Brucci Miracle Nail Hardener, which was meh. Didn't seem to make much of a difference in my nails, nor did it extend the wear of my polish, so I didn't use much!
I'm currently using the Sally Hansens (Nailgrowth and Insta-Dri) and a-england The Knight and The Shield, which I'm not terribly thrilled with––I may write a post about it, or it may just wait until I use them up and ramble about them in an empties post. I plan to try Zoya's soon, but if you have any other suggestions for HG base and top coats, let me know! I'm willing to try pretty much anything. Also, does anyone know how to get rid of unwanted polishes? I know I'm not supposed to throw them away because they'll kill everything ever, so right now they're just chilling out in a box.

The Perfume Rejects
Guerlain Le Petite Robe Noire is perhaps the most disappointing perfume I have ever smelled. I adore Guerlain perfumes––MitsoukoJicky, Shalimar, Samsara, Habit Rouge, Derby...––and refuse to believe that this piece of overly sweet, synthetic berry, shrill and cheap disaster could possibly come from the same house. Bear in mind that perfumes tend to pull really sweet on me, and that I loathe "berry" in my perfumes, but I honestly cannot recommend this to anyone. It was a scrubber on me, particularly insulting coming from such a good house.
Coach Poppy Flower and Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy, which are both generic synthetic fruity florals. That's pretty much all I can say on them.

ETA: Perfume's been taken!

And, if you've managed to make it all the way down here, Armani Code pour femme. This is a half-full 1.7 oz bottle that I would like to get rid of. The scent is nice; not particularly remarkable or excellent, but wearable and long-lasting, but it reminds me of a time I would rather not remember (senior fall at Swat, urgh), and I just can't wear it. If you want it, it's yours, just leave a comment or send me an email (beyondjustbeauty at gmail dot com), the cost is shipping––and I'll send it the cheap way, no worries.

So I don't think I did too shabby this month! Still have a fair amount of fall cleaning to do in my nail polish and perfume samples, but my makeup stash at least is looking pretty good. As far as my guidelines for September went, I didn't quite manage to meet them (darn), but I was really close! I picked up 5 nail polishes, but only paid for 4 (haha, that makes it sound like I stole one––much more mundane, though, I just used a coupon code). I got 1 non-essential beauty item, a lip gloss (review to come), though I suppose you could argue that the Real Techniques brush sets I picked up aren't essential (which would be pretty true). I was at my $120 budget until Surrender to Chance had 20% off everything, which I used to pick up a few samples of things I smelled in New York (and which also put me over the 1 perfume order by 1). So I ended up $25 over, but I'll hopefully do better next month, because: I have a list, and I'm sticking to it. My collection at this point is really nicely rounded, in my opinion, and I no longer feel much of a need to buy new products and try stuff out, particularly from the drugstore. I do have things I would like to add, but it's very much a curated list:
––A pink blush. There will be a Currently Coveting describing this further, and I hope you all can help me!
––A lilac blush, but I'm making do with CARGO Tonga for the time being.
––Numerous liquid lipsticks/lip glosses, but I'm restricting myself to no more than 1 a month. I'm leaning towards YSL Glossy Stain in 4 Mauve Pigmente for October, since I have no vampy lipsticks (shameful!), but that could change depending on the Armani and Burberry options, and whether I can find a shade I love in Hourglass or MUFE's versions (so many choices).

For October, my usual $120 limit applies, and I'm going to try to limit myself to 1 indie perfume order (Sonoma Scent or Tauer) and 1 Aedes order (though, at a mere $15 for 7 samples, I have a terribly hard time not ordering from there every day). School will be picking up soon, and I won't have time to do my usual product stalking, which hopefully will cut down on the lemmings!

Oy, these posts always end up being opuses (opi?). I'm all talked-out at this point, so tell me: how did your September go? And do you want that bottle of perfume?

Inglot Freedom Palette Eyeshadow in 32, 352, 415, 428, 439 and Matte Eyeshadow Single in 391 Review and Swatches

When Inglot had their 20% off sale, I decided it was time to finally try out the brand. I spent days researching swatches and narrowing down my choices, and managed to convince L to split an order with me so we didn't have to pay for shipping, but when I went to place my order, the code was no longer working. My theory is that they were overwhelmed by the response, so they deactivated the code before they said they would, but I am a cynical person so take that with a grain of salt. However, when I tweeted them angrily, they told me to email their customer service, which I did, and a few days later I received a code for 30% off an order. Yay for additional savings, boo for delayed customer service response and hassle. Putting that tale of woe aside, though, here are my thoughts on the product itself.

30 Days: Day 16

What's your least favorite part of makeup-ing yourself?

For me, it's brows. My routine involves plucking any stray hairs that I missed in the last round (I usually do full-on plucking at night and strays in the morning), brushing them into shape with a spoolie, applying brow powder (though I do need to get new brow powder at some point, as the one I have is too dark and red––any suggestions for matte brown taupes?) with smudge brush or, more recently, the Real Techniques brow brush, and gelling them in place. The whole process takes less than a minute, but the entire time I bitch to myself about how bored and annoyed I am. That being said, it does make a big difference in helping my face look "finished", so I continue to do it.
Before and after brows
But I'm not happy about it, damnit!

What about you?

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige Review and Swatches

Part of Maybelline's LE Fashion Week collection were a few new shades of Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows, including a shimmery champagne. I don't find myself wearing the other Color Tattoo I have (Bad to the Bronze) all that often because it's a little dark and really only works if I wear it as a base to a smoky taupe eye, but I bought Barely Beige in the hopes that it could be a good eyeshadow base/quick and easy nude eye.

Sunday Summary

Tomorrow is the first day of school, which is pretty much always preceded by a massive freakout on my part. Sure, I've been doing it for 17 years, but every year (actually just about every term) I become convinced that I'm going to fail and be thrown out of school in disgrace. Knowing how absurdly illogical that is has not yet been sufficient to keep the panic from appearing, but maybe this is the year that will change! I plan to try and finish tidying my rooms and do lots of blog stuff to keep my mind off of it, so you can probably look forward to a slew of posts this next week as a result of my productivity!

Here are some pictures of the past few days for your entertainment.
The first Tibalu delivery! (Tibalu is my mother's new business; she makes seasoned nuts and granola clusters that are out of this world delicious, and I get to eat all the leftovers, whoooo!) 48 bags each of Jamaican Jerk mild hot, Dark Chocolate, Thai Green Curry, and Blueberry, and 24 bags of Jamaican Jerk Extra Spicy, headed for the UO to be sold in 6 of the cafes on campus. I'm so proud of her! And excited to buy my very first retail Tibalu bag. If you're not in the Eugene area but want to try some, let me know and we'll see what we can arrange (she also makes baller granola which is not currently available for sale to anyone, but I anticipate that will change sometime soon as everyone absolutely loves it). You should also like the Tibalu Facebook page and Twitter! Especially because I'm the administrator behind the Twitter account, and will therefore probably throw in random shit completely unrelated to the business. And also I am currently the only person following Tibalu, which is just sad.

Skincare Saturday: Makeup Artist's Choice French Green Clay Mask

Clay masks are usually something I view favorably, even if they don't seem to make much of a difference in my skin. Makeup Artist's Choice offers one, and in my last order I decided to order a sample size. In the past, I've always slathered clay masks on really thick, but since the sample jar is super tiny, I decided to try spreading it on thinly––turns out that's just as effective! I got 3 uses out of the 3 gram jar, so the full 1.7 oz size should give about 50 uses.

Fragrance Friday

Wednesday it was sunny but not terribly warm, and I decided to wear Hermès Eau des Merveilles (Oriental Woody: lemon, orange, pepper, pink pepper, violet, amber, vetiver, cedar, oakmoss, fir), a citrus-amber-woodsy scent. In the evening, the boy came over and we hung out in the living room with my mother for a bit, who told the boy he smelled really nice. When I asked her if she was sure it was him and not me (because the boy doesn't wear cologne or perfume, just deodorant), she was like, "No, it smells like man," only to realize upon smelling me more closely that it was, in fact, my perfume. So apparently Eau des Merveilles (which is apparently a women's perfume, though I honestly think it's more unisex than anything) makes me smell like a dude, at least to my mother. It's far from the most masculine scent I wear, though, so that certainly won't stop me! (Guerlain Derby and Habit Rouge and Dior Eau Sauvage are all more masculine, and I love them all dearly.)

What gender-bending perfumes do you like? Have you tried Eau des Merveilles? How do you think it smells?

New York Summary Post

I got the chance to go to several stores in New York that I'd not been to before, and sniffed a lot of perfumes. I thought it might be interesting/helpful to share my thoughts with y'all, should you ever be in New York and want to smell perfumes! For a thorough summary of perfume stores in the area, see The Non-Blonde's awesomely helpful post. And, so that you don't get overwhelmed with perfume rambling, I've included random pictures from the trip.

A little boutique on Crosby Street with a truly unbelievable array of perfumes. The boy and I went there and were the only customers, and we felt rather out of place, but the sales people were really nice and patient and let us wander and smell to our heart's content. I highly recommend stopping by there! I already mentioned Tauer Carillon Pour Un Ange as being an absolute gem, but it was far from the only thing we smelled. From Amouage, I liked Lyric, both the men and women's versions, and Dia Woman, and quite disliked Epic Woman. From Parfum d'Empire, I tried and liked WazambaIskander, and Ambre Russe (though I would need to try them on skin to say for sure), and really disliked Aziyadé, which did the Amouage Jubilation thing and smelled like curry to me (and the boy as well). The fruit came out more when sprayed on a blotter than when just sniffing the bottle, but it was still entirely too spicy for me (I like spice, just not cumin and cardamom as a perfume!).

Travel Beauty: Part II

I'm home again, which means a return of semi-regular posting! Yippee. I had a really lovely trip, which I will talk more about soon, but right now I am barely coherent and very sleepy, so will instead throw some pictures at you. This post covers the non-liquid beauty items I brought with me (aka, the things that were not easily accessible to me during my layover; those that were can all be found in Part I), as well as all the things I purchased on my trip (which I define as being "after I left Eugene", not just "on the East Coast", since I got some stuff in Portland before leaving).

What I Brought
Brushes: I picked up the Real Techniques Starter Set (purple) and Core Collection (orange), but switched out a couple of the brushes for others in my collection, so I ended up bringing, left to right, top to bottom: RT base shadow, RT crease, RT accent, Sonia Kashuk crease, RT brow, RT contour, Ecotools concealer, RT detailer (which I used as a lip brush), RT buffing, elf Powder, and RT blush brushes. The cases that the Real Techniques brushes came with are really handy for traveling, but a pain in the butt for everyday use––it's so much effort to get the brushes back into their elastic bands! Definitely preferable to stick them in another container when not traveling.

Mid-Trip Update

Greetings again! I finally got around to uploading some pictures so I thought it a good time to ramble some more at y'all.

Here's me before the wedding:
Normal and OH SO EXCITED
Dress from JCPenney ($36), shoes from Kohls ($16), and lipstick was Rouge Dior in Favori Red ($32, so yes, it cost twice as much as my shoes. I have my priorities, alright?). Full review of the lipstick to come, but I hope this picture shows some of its beauty!

Hello! And Some Quick Perfume Notes

Greetings, my lovelies! I'm writing from the boy's house in Maryland. The wedding was good (though I was exhausted, as expected [actually even more than I expected, but that's because I always forget how wiped I get after flying]), and I'll have pictures up at some point, and we spent the day today relaxing in his hometown. We did some shopping––picked up a light sweater and thin belt at Marshalls (sales tax sucks, btw––if only Eugene had a better shopping selection!), some tea as a hostess gift for his mother (guys, Teavana is mad expensive, be forewarned), and sniffed a bunch of perfumes at Nordstrom. The boy was a very good sport, and gamely tried everything I stuck under his nose. We agreed on most of them, though I think he was less bothered by the super sweet scents than I was. Some brief notes on what I remember:

Elie Saab: Pleasant! Didn't smell overly soapy, like orange blossom tends to for me. Need to try on skin. Thanks to MM for bringing this one to my attention! Definitely not my kind of perfume, but she loved it so much I had to try it.
Lady Gaga Fame: Exactly as all the reviews said, it smells like generic sweet berry mess. Reminded me of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, which was a scrubber on me. How disappointing. Sniffed it right after Nicole by Nicole Richie, which is also exactly like every other celeb fragrance, but I was less offended by it because a) it had less berry (I hate berry!), and b) I was expecting it to be a snore, so there was no major letdown.
Hermes Un Jardin en Mediterranee: Basil, I think? Unpleasantly herby. And that's coming from me, she who loves Eau Sauvage! And who regularly exclaims "why can't they make a perfume that smells like this" when my mother is chopping basil. Something went wrong here. The boy's opinion: "No person should smell like that." We are, apparently, in the minority, as Fragrantica has it rated very highly (and doesn't mention any basil, go figure).
Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Nil: Grapefruit hairspray? Or just really, really green grapefruit. Pulled much greener and sharper on my skin than on the blotter. It might be really nice in hot weather, especially if you like crisp citrus scents, but I ended up being not crazy about it.
Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Toit: Grass and apple, which together smelled like green apple (the actual fruit, not the candy flavor). Smelled nice on the blotter, and was the boy's favorite out of all the Jardins. Would like to compare it to DKNY Be Delicious.
Prada Candy, the other scent I ended up deciding was worth trying on my skin. It's more refined than the name would suggest, but still very, very sweet, somewhat like burnt caramel. It's not bad, but I much prefer my gourmands with more of a bite––if I can have Shalimar, why settle for Candy? However, if Shalimar is too much for you, Candy may be a good entry. Infinitely better than most fruity floral messes!
And Givenchy Dahlia Noir, which was the sweetest of them all (though less offensive than Fame).
There were others, but apparently nothing memorable...

We're off to New York tomorrow, via Megabus, which should be fun (fingers crossed that they're not running too behind!). Lots of people to see and perfumes to sniff! I'll keep y'all posted on anything new and exciting :)

Have you tried any of these perfumes? What did you think? Any recommendations for places to eat in New York?

Skincare Saturday: Makeup Artist's Choice 100% Pure Virgin Argan Oil

I ordered a bunch of stuff from MUAC last month (as well as some stuff in May, which I still have yet to review...), and one of the things I've liked best is their Argan Oil.

Travel Beauty: Part I

My flight is delayed an hour out of DFW, so I figured why not write a blog post?! About the liquid items I brought with me, since those are the ones I have the easiest access to. Please forgive the crappy photos; I obviously did not bring anything approximating a lightbox with me (nor can I go outside to snap in the sunshine). I'm also in too much of a time crunch to bother linking to everything, so this is a (refreshingly?) link-free post.

I chose to bring just perfume sample vials. It appears (and by appears, I mean smells) like my beloved Sonoma Scent Studio Forest Walk leaked some in transit. So now everything in my baggie smells like forest! Which is great, but I would rather I smell like forest. Ah well. At least I was already planning on buying a bigger vial! I brought one Guerlain, Derby, which I am wearing right now––I think it's too heavy to wear while flying, but I dabbed some off before I left which helped. I adore the chypreness of it, but I forgot that airports are always way overly warm. All others are Sonoma Scent as well: Cameo (to wear to the wedding, 'cause it's classy as fuck [just like me, clearly]), Velvet Rose (probably should have grabbed Champagne de Bois instead, but it's too late now!), and Jour Ensoilellé (which is what I should have worn for this flight stuff).

Bon Voyage (is it bad karma to wish oneself that?)

I'm off to the East Coast for a week and a half, so I'll be intermittently available/posting/commenting. The boy and I are going to the wedding of one of his high school friends in Baltimore (let's hope this visit to BWI goes better than the last), then up to New York for 6 days to visit some dear friends (so excited!). I'll be sure to take pictures of me pre-wedding, because I'm going to be rocking some truly stellar lipstick––the dress ain't bad, either. But before I go (to bed, because I am sleepy and have to wake up early [9 is early for some people, shut up] tomorrow), a couple pictures!

From the trip I took with L and A up to Portland for some Labor Day Weekend shopping, a gigantic flower gazebo at Woodburn:

And a perfume collection at Nordstrom that made me giggle. What is Taylor Swift Wonderstruck doing next to Balenciaga and Prada Infusion d'Iris?! Those have absolutely nothing in common.

And one last picture of the baby watermelon, taken today before I left. We'll see how much it grows in my absence! It's big enough now that I had to use both hands to pick it up, though I can still hold it in one hand.
Are those stretchmarks?!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Chop Chop

I got my hair cut!
I now have bangs. And rather short hair. I like it! I've had short hair on-and-off since I was in middle school, but it's been awhile since the last time and I really like it. The bangs necessitate more effort than I'm used to putting into my hair; I have to blow dry them, then pull them back to apply my makeup, then straighten them (using a tiny Revlon travel straightener, since my hairdresser said the mini ones are better for bangs since you can get up close to the roots; she was, as always, right). But it's only 5 minutes or so, and up to this point it hasn't been too annoying! I am, however, looking for something that I can put in my bangs to keep them from getting static-y. It's not too bad, but I imagine once it gets rainy again I'll need some nice anti-frizz, anti-static stuff. Any suggestions? I think a spray would work best for my hair, since it's very fine and easily weighted-down, but I'm willing to try pretty much anything!

Do you ever change up your hair? What's your current hairstyle?

30 Days: Day 15

Halfway through the 30 Days series! YAY! Only...9 months left, I'd guess? Also, HOW IS IT ALREADY SEPTEMBER?!

What's in your purse right now?

I love seeing posts from people showing the contents of their bags, so I thought I should do a post on the same! My purse, a gift from L, is very spacious, and I use it as my school bag as well as being my purse, so it's got a lot of stuff in it.
It's also been a few days since I've cleaned out the lip products, so there's quite a stash...

General Purse-Type Stuff
Clockwise from top left:
Glasses cleaning cloth, which came with my glasses
Prescription sunglasses that are, unfortunately, not the right prescription (because I lost those after wearing them once, fml), and I think wearing them for any extended period of time gives me migraines, so I should probably just take them out.
Keychain, which has about a bajillion things on it:
