Designing, designing, designing

It has been an incredibly hectic past year with no end in sight... thankfully. I'm grateful for the work, and happy I've been able to get through it all without missing a deadline or worse, completely screwing something up. Oh except for that sample that the post office lost. It was finally delivered almost 3 weeks later, but I missed a release window and I decided it was best to backburner it until Fall 16. ANYWAY...

So much of what I do, I can't share. Yarn companies and publications like to keep things under wraps until they're ready to announce it. I understand, completely. But it leaves me very little to talk about regarding my day-in and day-out activity. But know I'm working on lots of goodies for you!

Since I can't write too much about what I'm doing, it's been a very very fun distraction posting pics of pretty makeup and fun things I've been getting my hands on. Things have changed a lot since I last went makeup shopping. Most importantly, the quality! Almost nothing has bothered my skin which is sensitive, finicky and eczema-prone.

But, I have two product fails to report. (Of course, fails to me could be completely successes for you.) First, Kate Somerville's Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment.

Aside from it not really doing anything and smelling pretty bad, it gave me a very minor rash that disappeared within 24 hours. Not sure which of the ingredients irritated me, but after reading Paula's Choice Beautypedia write-up, it could be any number of things.

Next is Buxom's Full-On Lip Polish. It's supposed to make your lips more... buxom?

I am so so sad about this product. I loved the color and texture when I put it on. A pretty my-lips-but-better color with just a teensy bit of a sheen and not that sticky! But slowly a tingly sensation started to set in. Unfortunately, the tingly was more of a burn on my sensitive lips. I'd say if you're eczema-prone and/or if you have sensitive skin, stay away. I had to wash it off as the feeling didn't fade. If you like the menthol-y feeling, you may really like this! But, not for me.

Anyway, more positive reviews to come!! And follow me on Snapchat, if you're not already. I'm at: mishisnaps. This old lady is trying to get used to this new platform, so hopefully My Story will be more interesting as time rolls on. xoxo
