Skinfix Spotted at Target

If you have Eczema or severely dry skin, I have good news! Canadian brand SkinFix is coming to Target stores this month.
The products are based on 150 year old formulas that offer a steroid-free alternative to help heal eczema and severely dry skin.
I happened to spot two of their products, the Hand Repair Cream ($17.99) and the Body Repair Balm ($17.99).  There was a space for one more product but it was empty.  The price underneath was $24.99 and it was called Daily Lotion, so I assume it's a body lotion.

These are definitely not cheap and the tubes are small, so I'm curious to see how they perform! I have severely dry hands that crack and bleed all Winter, so I purchased the Hand Repair Cream...check back for a full review soon!

O.C.C. Lip Tar Dupe: J.Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint is now at Harmon's!

J.Cat Beauty just posted this photo on their Instagram page and I had to take a screenshot, because a lot of people say that their Wonder Lip Paint ($4.99) is a dupe for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar ($18).  
J. Cat announced that it's now available in Harmon Discount stores!  Unfortunately, I don't have a Harmon near me...the closest thing I have is the Harmon section inside Bed Bath and Beyond and the Christmas Tree Shop.  I haven't seen these at either of those places yet, but I'll keep checking.  I hope they'll be carrying them also!

Sephora Jumbo Liner 12 Hour Waterproof Swatches and Review

I've been searching for a cream eyeshadow stick that won't crease or fade for years and have recently found my holy grail product in Mally's Evercolor Shadow Sticks (see my review here). But at $25 each, I knew I had to find a cheaper dupe or I'd go broke! 
The other day, I was at Sephora and came upon these 12 hour Jumbo Liners by Sephora's own private label. At $14, they're not exactly drugstore prices, but they're $11 less than Mally's Evercolor sticks which is significant! The question is...did they hold up? Let's find out!

What it Is: A jumbo eye pencil that can be used as eyeliner or eyeshadow.
What it Does: Resistant to water, heat, and humidity, these creamy pencils stay put for 12 hours.
What it Costs: $14
Where to Get It: Sephora stores and Sephora.com
Similar To: Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick
Quick Rating: Thumbs way up!

The New L.A. Girl Beauty Bricks are here!

Last week, L.A. Girl put out a teaser on their Instagram page about some new palettes they're releasing called Beauty Bricks, and guess what? They're finally available on their site!
They're $9 each and there are four versions, Smoky, Ultra, Nudes, and Neons. They're saying that these have Major Pigment, so I definitely have to try these! The Nudes looks similar to the Naked 3 palette, so that would be great if it was a dupe!
Smoky (above) and Neons (below)

If you check out LA Girl's Instagram page, you can see swatches of all four palettes as well as a video that another blogger (@glam_trash_makeup has posted. They look so beautful, pigmented and buttery!  I plan on buying the Nudes and Smoky palettes so stay tuned for a review!

To purchase, please visit the L.A. Girl Website.

Spotted at Walgreens: L.A. Colors Palettes and Sets Holiday 2014

This time of the year all of the palettes and sets come out for holiday, so you'll likely be seeing a lot of palette posts the next several weeks. I just spotted a bunch of new palettes from L.A. Colors I've reviewed some of their makeup in the past and it's good quality while being very affordable and cruelty free.

First, I spotted these $1 shadow palettes right next to the Profusion ones I reviewed earlier today, except these have 12 shades in them, not 5! There are 6 different versions of this palette ranging from bold to more neutral, so you'll definitely find one (or 6!) that you'll like.
