I needed to get rid of my lip hair one day and I usually bleach the hair but my coworkers told me that waxing is a lot better because you don't even see the hair. I always thought it would grow back thicker and thicker...well to make a long story short, I went to Sally's to get wax and came across Surgi Wax Remover for face. Here's how to do it:
Here is what it comes with:
Put it in the microwave until it gets soft. (Read the instructions for the time for your microwave) Test it out on your skin before applying to the lip area.
Here's what it looks like after the microwave:
Here it is on!
I think it is a good process for a beginner and at home waxing. The only thing was it took multiple times to microwave it a total of like a minute extra than it said on the instructions. I was scared to pull it off myself knowing exactly when the pain was to come but it wasn't so bad! It cools to a hard plasticy like texture then you rip it off like a bandaid! Pulled the majority of the hair off my lip but not all because I was too scared! haha I would use this again though!
Just the eyeshadows
Just the blush, lipgloss, and bronzer:
Where to find & How much: $19.50 at Sephora
Review: This palette makes a great holiday gift because it comes with a little of everything you need to complete your face! This also makes a great traveling makeup palette so you don't have to pack so much makeup this is easy to grab and go. I do believe they could have choose the colors a little better because the majority of them are very light or dark, some more neutrals would have been nice but this is a great variety if you don't like too many neutrals! I have a first impressions review & tutorial going up soon on my YouTube account as well.

My first impression: the smell is a little too strong for me. It has this orange-y type scent that doesn't stay on your skin after but its still a little strong. They take off your makeup nicely but I don't know if its just the past makeup wipes but they seemed a little dry to the point where it feels weird and feels like I'm using just a tissue paper. And I just don't have that feeling of knowing all my makeup is off. I do, however, like that its all natural line so its better for the skin.
Would I buy them again? No, I don't think so. Ill go through this pack and that's about it.
Price:$ I can't remember right now but its around 15 which is more than I would spend since I use one a day. I got these at sephora.

I've worn "Nutty" a few times the pigmentation on these shadows are really nice and they are super soft and creamy which make it super easy to not only blend but to apply on the lid. I HIGHLY recommend these shadows and be sure to check back for my holiday swatches as well!
If you have never tried these eyeliners before I highly suggest it! I love my 24/7 eyeliner in black but some say for their lids it's a little TOO creamy to the point where it smudges a little bit, I would say try it out for yourself and see! You might just find your holy grail eyeliner. Oh and these are waterproof too!
