Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil.

I was so excited to find Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Cleansing Beauty Oil in my hotel room last week. I so wanted to try it. And with the amount of makeup I was applying over and over it should have been the perfect time to try it.

I pulled out the giant bottle of green oil and tested a bit on my hand. It smelled nice and glided over my hands. It did not feel overly oily like an olive oil cleanser. I was ready to give it  a try. When placing the box down, I noticed in big bold letters the two words my face does not like to see or hear: Mineral Oil.


I rarely break out from anything at all. But when I have had a breakout or two, I always notice that Mineral Oil was in the said product used and thus concluded that my face does not like it.  I could not use this. Well, not on my face anyway.

I will tell you how I am using this oil and it has done wonders for me. I squirt out one pump and rub it on my hands. The backs of my hands, the palms, my cuticles, under my nails. Within seconds it is absorbed and my skin so smoothe and looking much younger than they really are. Next time I bathe my feet, I plan to use Cleansing Beauty Oil on my feet.  

I love to find different uses for beauty products, especially when I thought I would have to write off such a beauty.

Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O is a "premium, anti-aging and antioxidant skin purifier that thoroughly cleanses the skin while protecting it against the internal and external aggressions associated with aging. Contains catechin, an element of green tea extract that provides skin with antioxidant protection."
Look for this Cleansing Oil and other Shu goodness at,,,  and soon at Space.NK.

Makeup Searcher Asks - What is your favorite lipgloss shade?

graphic_makeup_searcher_ask.jpgI have so many lipgloss favorites, but they really tend to vary from season to season. I tend to apply more darker berry and mocha shades in the colder months; bronzes, pinks, peaches, and golds in the warmer months.

Currently I am obsessed with my Chantecaille gloss in Mimoso (the one I just bought over the weekend) and the new Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Guavagold (from the upcoming Long-Last Bronze Summer Collection). It is no surprise that they are almost the same color. Just one goes on with a finger or brush and the other with a lipgloss wand.

What is your current favorite lipgloss shade? Let me know in the comments. I am always looking for more great shades to add to my never-ending collection.
