Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser

If you aren't familiar with the brand Suki, than we are in the same boat my friend.

The last time I ever saw the letters s-u-k-i together, it was the first part of that awesome love ballad song Sukiyaki by 4 P.M. Any 80's babies in the house?! I love that song! #noshame


I received a sample of this cleanser in my July Birchbox and it couldn't have come at a better time because I had just run out my exfoliator. Honestly, if it weren't for the fact that I had just run out, I probably wouldn't have tried this product for awhile. I already threw away the sample packaging, but it was very "homemade" looking. Usually when I have samples of brands that are completely unknown to me, in a no frills, homemade kind of packaging, I tend to be a bit apprehensive about trying them out. Is that just me?

Product Line Rave: Michael Todd True Organics

 So obviously by the title you can tell that I'm in love with a new line of skincare! I have been using the Michael Todd True Organics line since December and can confidently say I attribute my improved skin to their products. Not only do I love that their products are formulated without all the bad stuff, but they are effective products for my acne prone and blemished skin which is awesome!

The picture above shows all the products I have tried from the line, minus one other bottle which I think I threw away already. It's crazy to think that I have positive things to say about each product! I am not affiliated with the brand what so ever,  I seriously just love the products!

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

*Product Rave*
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

 (L-R) Sweet Heart, Perfect, Smokey Look, Tanned,Beige,
 Tea Rose, Doll Pink, Perfect Red, Chandelier, La-La, Crystal Soda

Hands down, NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses are my fav! 

Here's why:

* Affordable (You can find them for $5.50 or less, more info below)
* Wide range of colors (50 to be exact!)
* Smells yummy (To me they smell like cherry candy)
* Not sticky
* Majority of shades have great color pay off

I highly recommend these lip glosses! They are not just great because of the sticker price, they are actually great quality and exceed many high end brands in that area. Definitely top 3 worthy for me among drugstore and high-end combined. Like any make up line, there are always a few shades that don't perform as well as others, but I've been pleased with the majority of the glosses I have used in this line. Some of the shimmery shades like Chandelier and Crystal Soda can be a bit sheer but they still look great layered over lipstick. 

These glosses can be found at, Ulta, and my personal favorite: There are other online sites that sell NYX as well but I personally only order my NYX products from Not only do they sell these cheaper than the $5.50 retail price, they often have 20% off sitewide sales which is when I make my purchases. So that's a discounted price with an additional 20% off (making these lippies a little under $3.50 each), SCORE! AND right now they are having their sitewide sale through 1/31/13. Use code V20 for 20% off anything on the site!  
*A little warning with, for some reason their NYX lip gloss swatches are not that great, so I would definitely check the actual NYX site first before making your purchases.* 


Now for some swatches:

                                                    (L-R) Sweet Heart, Perfect, Smokey Look, Tanned, Beige

                                      (L-R) Tea Rose, Doll Pink, Perfect Red, Chandelier, La-La, Crystal Soda
                                                                     Doe Foot applicator

Here are my absolute favorites worn alone on the lips: 

 *Horrible name because this gloss is not beige at all. It's a perfect pinky nude*

Doll Pink 

Perfect Red
