theBalm® cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One

Deborah Lippmann the Stripper to go
|Nail Mitt Before|
The package claimed it was a "lavender nail lacquer remover finger mitts." It had a very faint floral scent beneath the usual acetone scent. I tested this out on the manicure you see in the thebalm photo two above.
Here's the result. It did clear off all ten nails pretty well. But for $2 a pop (6 for $12), I think I'll stick with my bottle of nail polish remover--even at the loss of the faint floral scent.
Harvey Prince Skinny Chic
This is a nice sized perfume sample. Skinny Chic isn't an overpowering scent. The package describes it as: "Green Apple, Sweet Mint and Warm Amber" I don't notice any mint (which is a good thing) but the combination of green apple and warm amber is lovely. I will definitely use up this entire tube :)
My™ Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer
While this moisturizer did cut down on shine and it did seem to moisturize, it made my skin burn a little at first. The scent was nothing to write home about. At $68 a tube, there is no way I'll be buying this.
amika Color pHerfection Shampoo
I've yet to try this product... I'll do a specific post about it if it turns out to be amazing ;)
