I bought this to try and get rid of the red razor bumps/eczema on my knees. It's especially annoying because I wear a skirt to school as part of my uniform a majority of days! Now down to the nitty gritty:

The Night Calming has a scent of lavender and chamomile- hence night calming as studies have shown that those scents are soothing and help some sleep. When it comes to actual makeup removal- they pretty much do the same thing- and one is not better than the other, it's more personal preference. Both claim to even remove waterproff mascara, which some remover wipes do not, and I wake up with black flakes under my eyes if the night before I don't also use liquid eye makeup remover. I like the original better because sometimes the smell can kind of annoy me, but the scent never irritates my skin.

Here are a few links to DIY candle shops that I found websites for, as well as tutorials to make your own candles. I also included some places to buy good quality candles online that I got high recommendations from youtube gurus, and blogs. *None of these companies are influencing or paying me in any way to link their company.*

1. Never get a wax, or facial the day before school starts. Facials will usually bring all impurites out and you will breakout for a little, and waxing can cause redness and irritation.
2. Don't get a new hair-do before you have some time to experiment and find what works for you.
3. Break in shoes at least 4 days ahead of time so you won't get blisters and be uncomfortable all day.
4. Don't stress about...well anything! Stress could cause breakouts, and no one wants that. :)
5. Schools can be germy, so carry around or keep in your locker some hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer can be very drying to your hands- so try to keep some lotion around too.
Any additions? Feel free to comment!

I have never tried a liquid liner pen such as this, only a brush liner such as the MAC liquidlast, or the Urban Decay liquid liner which are the only 2 liquid liners I have tried. This liner is great! It stays on all day! Sometimes, I do have some trouble with applying liquid liners, and it might get a little out of 'line.' It doesn't leak out anywhere, and the product isn't messy. Overall I really like this product and could most likely be my new favorite liquid liner!

Just like the original (featured below)- but the matte stain. This is available in six colors ranging from mauve berry to hot pink. LipSurgence Clinical Results prove that there is a 6000% increase in lips' moisture content after 28 days. This formulation is free of;

In Chanel's fall collection (available now!) one new Le Vernis Nail Colour is being launched, and that is Paradoxal- a plum gray retailing at $23. Chanel cosmetics are popular with their trend setting especially in their nail polishes (if you haven't heard/read/seen the hype over Jade polish, it's a beautiful Jade green polish which I must get my hands in soon!) *Featured on the Chanel Fall 2010 runways*
This fall OPI is also launching a new gray toned line of polishes in their Swiss Fall 2010 Collection. This line will feature 12 new gray toned polishes, but Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous is certainly the way to go with the gray polish trend! It is available in full size for $8.50, but also in the Irre-Swiss-Ables Mini set. This is all set to launch August 1.
Sally Hansen $6.99
If you're looking for a more inexpensive polish, you've found one in Sally Hansen Gray by Gray. This polish is a slate with some blue-infused sheen. This is as far as I know- available year round at a drugstore nearest you! This is also a dupe for the custom Lancôme shade pictured above.
What do you think? A hit or miss trend?
