Swatches: Glamour Doll Eyes Liars Keep Secrets

press sample affiliate links

Vee from Glamour Doll Eyes sent me the Liars Keep Secrets to swatch. Ugh these colors are so pretty! I did a FOTD with them, which you can see here. I don’t have the eyeliner yet, but as soon as I get it I shall swatch it. :) You can see swatches of the shadows and blush right now though! This collection is inspired by the tv show Pretty Little Liars. It’s also in collaboration with Kiss My Sass Cosmetics! I will be swatching their collection as well! This collection comes out December 2nd. Enjoy minks!

Here are Vee’s notes on all the colors!

Hefty Hanna
Hefty Hanna was a nickname Alison had given Hanna because she was a little overweight. After Alison disappeared she became friends with Mona and lost a lot of weight. “A” still constantly reminds Hanna of her “hefty” past. I chose purple for Hanna because she is very girly. I think she is the girliest out of the 4 and has a very feminine wardrobe. I also chose to incorporate pink into it because she is also the sweetest of the 4.

Madhouse Mona
Madhouse Mona was a name given to the not so popular Mona by Caleb and I think it is a great name for her. Mona was proven to be the original “A” and just caused a lot of trouble for the girls. I chose burgundy for Mona because like a lot of the other girls, she generally has a smokey eye but often rocks a beautiful burgundy lip. I also chose to add some red sheen and sparkle because she plays dirty!

Not Your Secret
Emily I feel is one of the quietest of the group. You can tell she thinkgs a lot. I named this “Not Your Secret” because that is what she told Paige when they started dating and Paige didn’t want to come out. Emily didn’t want to be her secret. I chose blue for Emily for a few different reasons. She is a bit of a tom boy compared to the other girls but she does have a very feminine flare (hence the purple and pink) but also because she is a swimmer and water is blue.

Radley Prep
This color is inspired by and named after Spencer. Spencer is known to be a little preppy, always studying or being studious in school but she also has her dark side which landed her in the Radley Sanitarium. Ever since she has gotten out, she has been falling down a rough path. I chose brown for Spencer because she is very dull (the preppy part) but as I said, has a dark side so I wanted to add some color sparkles that were just insane!

Hot for Teacher
There is no denying that Aria is hot for the teacher. They have been dating for quite a while. Let’s be real, if Ezra was any of our teachers, we would probably date him too. I chose a soft pink blush for Aria because her normal make up is usually a basic smokey eye, like most of the girls but she usually has a soft pink blush on.

Red Coat
Red Coat is crafted mainly for Alison because she is the girl behind the red coat, her disguise to get to the girls and stay in hiding. Alison has beautiful blonde hair which is highlighted in the golden shimmer of this liner.

Clearance Sale
And of course you know they’d have a clearance section! This is their closeout section. You get extra savings on these products because they won’t be carrying them anymore.

The product pages have lots of info for you. There’s a quick overview that gives you a brief rundown on the product. There’s an options dropdown where you can see what purchasing options you have for that product, the quantity you want and the add cart, add review and wishlist buttons. If you scroll down more you’ll find lots of more goodies. There’s a features area that gives you a much better description of the product you are looking at. They even have an area that shows what they recommend the product for. So if you have dark spots or large pores, it’ll let you know if you should try that product or not. Then they have an area for how to use the product, and more product info and ingredients! Many of the listings have ingredients listed, but some do not. But I have noticed that ingredients are hard to get for Korean products.

She likes them!

Just the kiddos!

Just a few pictures of the kiddos from the other night. Sascha was not bothered by me getting some pictures for once. XD And I trimmed Fumiko’s bangs back again, they were getting too long. She likes her “bang bangs” to be very precise. She likes them cut one way and one way only. XD

I have a very bad ear ache. T.T My right ear is killing me and the headache is not helping. To top it off I feel like I have the flu from hell and keep getting sick to my stomach. Boo. I really wanted to swatch today, but the sun didn’t come out. It’s been raining, which I love, just not when I need to swatch. XD Hopefully the sun comes out tomorrow. I hope everyone is enjoying Autumn so far, when it’s not hot anyways.

Acne Control Body Wash & Face Wash samples

Review: Dial® Acne Control Face Wash & Body Wash


Hello Minks! So I received some samples of Dial’s® Acne Control Face Wash and Body Wash from Dial thanks to BzzAgent. I tried them out for a little while and this is what I think!

Official description
Face Wash
Enjoy clearer looking skin in just three days. This oil-free face wash is formulated with maximum strength salicylic acid, to help clear and prevent breakouts while caring for skin.

Body Wash
Treat acne beyond the face with this oil-free body wash. Formulated with maximum-strength salicylic acid, it is developed with dermatologists and clinically proven to help give you clearer looking skin in three days.

Where to buy
Face Wash
From Walmart – 7.5 fluid ounces for $4.47 USD. Comes in a pump style bottle.

Body Wash
From Walmart – 12 fluid ounces for $5.47 USD. Comes in a flip top lid bottle.

Use the store finder to find it locally. It’s not widely available online.

Face Wash
Cleanse twice a day. Wet face. Apply to hands, add water And work into a lather. Massage face gently. Rinse thoroughly.

Body Wash
Use daily in shower or bath. For maximum lather, massage over wet skin with a wash cloth or body proof, concentrating on areas prone to breakouts. Rinse well.

I received samples. They were foil packets on one sheet, separated by perforated lines. Each had a body wash sample and a face wash sample and a coupon attached. The packets are white with blue lettering and accents and pictures of the face wash and body wash bottles. The back side of the packets have the product information.

Scent and formula
Both products have a light fresh citrusy smell. Both formulas are a thick, slightly tinted clear gel. They both lather up quite well.

Face Wash
Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 2% Inactive Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Juice, Citrus Paradisis (grapefruit) Juice, Passiflora Edulis Fruit Juice, Cocamidopropyl Pg-dimonium Chloride, Fragrance, Isostearamidopropyl Morpholine Lactate, Polyquaternium-10, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Peg-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Tetrasodium Edta, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Chloride, Yellow 5, Red 4.

Body Wash
Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 2% Inactive Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Fragrance, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Juice, Citrus Paradisis (grapefruit) Juice, Passiflora Edulis Fruit Juice, Cocamidopropyl Pg-dimonium Chloride, Isostearamidopropyl Morpholine Lactate, Polyquaternium-10, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Peg-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Tetrasodium Edta, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Chloride, Yellow 5, Red 4.

I used the body wash for about 5 days and the face wash for just over a week. I really liked the smell of these. It’s light and fresh and not overpowering. The scent doesn’t linger after you rinse your face or body. The first day I used these I had no reactions and my skin felt fresh, however after continued use they dried my skin out. The body wash dried my skin out a lot. I found myself having to use moisturizer after each shower, which I haven’t had to do in awhile. I don’t have body acne normally. Occasionally I’ll get a zit on my chest, but that only happens a few times a year. So I can’t tell you how this works with body acne. I have dry skin in general and usually use some kind of soap/body wash/whipped soap that is moisturizing. So that’s probably why this dried my skin out so much. Here is the CosDNA report.

The face wash didn’t dry my face out as bad as the body wash did to my body. Nonetheless it did dry it out. I found that in the time it took me to get out of the shower, dry off and go to my bedroom to start my skin routine my face was dry and tight. I had to use my spray mist more than usual as well. I have combination skin, my cheeks get super dry while my nose and forehead get oily. Since it’s getting cooler my nose and forehead are not getting as oily as usual. I don’t get a lot of acne on my face. It’s usually a zit here or there a few times a month. I really only breakout when I try a new product and it irritates my skin. So while this cleansed well, I don’t know how it works with acne. So the bottom line is, I liked the scent of these, but they just don’t work for my skin. Here is the CosDNA report.

Dial® Acne Control Face Wash & Body Wash

Weekly Poll

Weekly Poll: No.2 Do You Contour?

Yay it’s a new poll! So this weeks question is “Do you contour?”. Well do you? Why or why not? I have seen some insane contouring, that I don’t think I could ever be that dedicated to.

My answer
I do. When I remember to. It’s not all that important to me so I tend to forget. I do like it when I remember though.

Can you live without mascara?

The Pumpkin Patch 2014

Fumiko’s dad took the kiddos to the pumpkin patch yesterday. I forgot to charge my camera battery and it was dead. So these are from his cell phone. They got to go through the haunted maze and try to find clues to solve the farmer’s murder. Unfortunately they got tired after finding half the clues, so they didn’t get to find out who murdered him, but they had fun. They each got to pick a pumpkin and picked out nice big pumpkins to carve. I’m thinking this coming Saturday we’ll dig into them. They both woke up really sick this morning with high fevers. They’re both feeling better so to school they go in the morning. I’ll be giving them some more medicine in the morning before school, which will make them super happy. >.>

They also got to pick out costumes before we went to the pumpkin patch. Sascha picked out a skull ninja costume with ninja swords and Fumiko got a Draculaura costume from Monster High and a cute skull bag for trick or treating. Though I think she plans on wearing the witch costume I got for her. I found a really cute witch dress and a sparkly bat witch hat at the thrift store. Found out after we got home that it lights up. So she’s all happy about that. I had a migraine for part of this week, which turned into a headache, which now feels like it’s getting worse again. Boo. Anyways. Pictures.

Oh also. You may have noticed my blog was going batshit crazy today. D: I’m not sure when it started. It was fine after I made my last blog post on Saturday, but this morning it was just… blank. So I sent in a help ticket. Which didn’t go so well. At first they couldn’t figure it out, then added some script to some file, which made WordPress show up kind of… It was showing posts that were years old and the whole page was a jumbled mess. They finally figured out that a plugin was causing the error. Turns out it was one I updated on Saturday, that apparently got updated again between the time that I updated it and my blog went down because it was causing an error.

It was a very stressful day waiting to see what happened, and then seeing files getting removed was even scarier. But they ended up restoring files and I had to go through and enable plugins one by one to see which one was causing the issue, they messaged me AFTER I was mostly done to let know which two they thought it was. But all is well now, I hope. *knocks on wood* I had planned on doing round 3 of my Aromaleigh swatches, but the blog went cuckoo and the sun didn’t come out to play at all, and well I need Mr. Sun to come out so I can do them. So hopefully tomorrow is a better day for swatches! Also hopefully headache doesn’t turn into migraine.
