Laura Mercier Lingerie Eye and Cheek Palette

On my last trip to Sephora, I picked up this BEAUTIFUL Laura Mericer Eye & Cheek Makeup palette.  The first thing I love about this palette is that all the colors are great, not just a couple of them.  I hate when I love a couple of colors in a compact but don't like the rest of them, it feels like such a waste of money.  In this palette, everything is wearable.  The other thing that I like is that the compact only has eyeshadow and blush.  I already have so many compact wear I love the eyeshadow but am not too crazy about the lip gloss that they include. 

This set contains:

- 6 x 0.05 oz Eye Colour in Buff Pearl, Tawny Apricot, Rich Cocoa, Pale Pink, African Violet, Black Plum
- 2 x 0.11 oz Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Desire, Fresh Peach

The eyeshadow is a mix of matte and shimmery colors.  This eye & cheek compact is limited edition so pick one up soon!

no! no! 8800 Face and Bikini Professional Hair Removal Kit

So, I finally bought no! no! after debating it for quite some time now.  I have dark, course hair.  So, hair removal is a constant issue for me.  I've tried pretty much everything over the years, but it was mostly short term hair removal and nothing that was more long term.  I've been seeing infomercials on this hair removal product forever but wasn't so sure about it, especially since it's not really cheap.

So, I used no!no! hair remover on my face first.  You have to hold it in a certain position so it's not like you just place it on your face and move it around, it takes a little work.  Your hair starts to burn (which you have to keep in mind when considering using this - dealing with the smell of burning hair).  You just keep going over the entire area until you pretty much get all of the hair. 

Of course you can use this everywhere on your body, not just your face.  What this product promises is no regrowth after continued use.  I haven't used it long enough (just tried it a couple of weeks ago) to let you know what I think about long term results.  But, I am quite happy with it so far.  It is much easier than other types of hair removal and isn't painful like other types.  After you use the device to burn the hair off, you have to use the smoothing pads to get a smooth surface.

The kit, which seems like the best deal, includes the no! no! professional hair removal, 2 different tips for different parts of the body and after treatment cream which smoothes and moisturizes the skin.  If your looking for a long term product for hair removal, you should give this a try.
