Review of Made From Earth Face Firming Serum

If you follow my blog, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I try to use natural and organic alternatives as much as I possibly can in my beauty routine. I absolutely ADORE brands that not only formulate products without nasty chemicals, but that educate consumers about the products they’re using. After spending some time checking out the products on the Made From Earth website, I feel like I learned so much about commonly used bad-for-you ingredients used in skincare and beauty products.

Review & Swatches of Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Eyeliners

Urban Decay just ended their latest Friends & Family sale, 25% off! I picked up some De-Slick Skindinavia spray and the super duper awesome 24/7 Jackpot eye pencil set.

This set ROCKS! It’s $39 (although I only paid $29.25 because of the sale). It comes with NINE travel-sized pencils and one full size pencil, which is an $18 value in itself. You get the most popular color, Zero (black), in the full size. The other nine pencils are various shades of blue, green, purple, etc. They are travel sized, but they will still last a pretty long time because you most likely won’t be using them as everyday liners.
