How Yummy Picks!: Romeo and Jewels

Thursday, May 10, 2007

I discovered this amazing jewelry store browsing ThisNext and decided to highlight its great pieces! I love the aesthetic of natural jewelry that very easy wearing, pretty but still makes a statement. I'm a colorful chica who can't really wear dainty jewelry. Here's are some favorite wish list items!

Romeo and Jewels also gives a portion of its proceeds to Breast Cancer Research powerhouse, the Susan B. Komen Foundation so its definitely shopping for a great cause. Check it out at !

Multi-tasking Hidden Treasures...

While STILL unpacking last night I uncovered this lost jewel,Victoria's Secret Sexy Cheeks Mosaic Luminous Blush in Mosaic Champagne. In my opinion,I like the old VS makeup line, that Very Sexy line ain't too special:) lol!
Now this my F.O.T.D. with the blush. I used some the individual colors on my eyes and then swiped and swirled the blush all over as a highlighter. Multi-tasking at its best!!


Review:Gloves in a Bottle,Lumene Cleansing Oil and Ellin Lavar Products!!

Whew! What a title for the first post of the day! Here it is:

Lumene Cleansing Oil- I have pretty normal skin with the occasional menstrual breakouts or environment changes so I wasn't afraid of a "cleansing oil" And don't you be afraid either. I use it at night and it takes off makeup( except eye, keep using eye makeup remover) and rinses clean and makes my face feel fresh yet supple. I like having glowy skin going to bed. The only little thing is the fragrance, with alot of Lumene's products, has that White Diamonds perfume-y scent. If they nix that, the product is close to perfect. If you like DHC Cleansing Oil, you'll like this cheaper version.

Gloves in a Bottle- This "shielding lotion" is great for me because I'm a compulsive hand washer/dish washer. I wash dishes all the time and I like Gloves in A Bottle because it simply gives my hands back the moister it lost. I keep it near the sink. I used it one night on my feet and didn't put on any socks and woke up ash-free.

Ellin Lavar ReconstructMasque-Love it too death! Gave my hair these big loopy soft curls the first time I used it.

Ellin Lavar InstantShine Shine Enhancing and Frizz Fighting Mist- Not for my hair. I already have alot of shine naturally from using natural products on my hair, so this is a waste of money for me. Plus I didn't see the difference on wet or dry hair.

Ellin Lavar Anti Frizz Smoothing Gel- Thumbs down:(! I really tried to used this, skipping my beloved Kinky Curly Curling Custard for this product for three days. It gave no definition to the curl and no shine. I don't know who she possibly is marketing this gel too. Maybe someone with 2A,2B,3A,3B curls. But not 4A curly hair. Best thing about all of her products though is they have either no or a very faint fragrance. I think I'll buy and try the shampoo next.
