I just read an article about IT Cosmetics in the New York Times about a week or so ago, so they’ve been on my radar. So I was not that surprised when one of their products was in my Limited Edition CEW Birchbox this month. Continue reading
So I get my eyebrows shaped 2 or 3 times a year, usually its whenever they start to get unruly. I was picking up some beauty products at Shen Beauty when I noticed a treatment chair in the corner. I asked the woman who worked there what was up and she confirmed my suspicions and said that they did brows. I went back to Shen to get mine done after brunch one Sunday and was super impressed with my brow shaping. I was even more excited that its located in Brooklyn super close to my apartment. While I was getting my eyebrows done, I asked the super cool lady who did my brows if she was wearing false lashes or eyelash extensions, because her lashes looks out of this world. She laughed and told me that she was actually just wearing mascara. What?!?! I seriously had to know which kind it was because I had to have it, her lashes were AMAZING.
I’m always on the hunt for a new mascara, especially a green one. IDK recently all of my mascaras have not been doing there thing aka lengthening and curling– yes I need and want both. I do have a stand by, this one, but even though its amazing with zero flakes and massive length and curl, summer makes me want to go greener with my beauty products even more than I already do.

In the under eye department, normally there is not too much to talk about. I usually reach for eye creams for an added moisture boost–thats it. Normally, my eyes don’t need special attention. But honestly when I’m enjoying life (staying out late) or working hard (staying up late) it takes a toll on my eyes. I look very tired and people ask me if I’m ok or if I’ve been crying– you know those nice comments of concern that all convey that you look like shit. Basically, you can tell when I’ve been behaving badly or when I have been churning out work by looking at my eyes. Some eye creams over the years work wonders -for a short time- eventually, most fall flat in their claims, but sometimes, sometimes you come across others that actually work. Continue reading
As I have mentioned I do talk about products that are not so green. Its hard, I love products. I’ve created a new tab to house all of the posts on green products, called GREEN PICKS. All the products listed are safe and pass my rigorous reading of ingredient lists. I’ll be updating this over the next week or so to include all of the One Product posts on safer products!
Enjoy and have an awesome weekend!
I’ve tried several organic and green mascaras and most of them are horrible. They flake, they smudge they do nothing to enhance my lashes. I had given up and resigned myself to using conventional mascaras forever, because the quest to find a green one felt futile. That was until now. Continue reading
I have a tendency to wear a ton of neutrals on my eyes. I don’t really go for colors, the most color I’ll go for its copper or gold, but just on my upper lash line so theres that. So when I went in search of a new shadow to get me out of my rut, I immediately went for RMS. Continue reading
