Beauty Spotlight: Pink Sith on a Desert Island

BSIntroPicPinkSith Beauty Spotlight: Pink Sith on a Desert Island

This week the Beauty Spotlight has abandoned The Pink Sith on a desert island. It was probably Lisamarie from Beauty Crazed that suggested it. While the Sith is pretty ticked off about being abandoned, she is looking forward to the 4 S’s of desert island living: Sun, Sand, Surf and Sunscreen!  She has compiled a list of 12 essential items she must have during this exile, and yes, it even includes some beauty items for when she is rescued by Chris Hemsworth (The guy who played Thor) or some suitable facsimile there of.  Enjoy!

Makeup Wars: Things I Rebuy

It’s time for another edition of “Makeup Wars”, and this time we are talking about items that we rebuy. Now, I try a lot of different things and don’t finish many – it’s just the nature of this site. So, if I repurchase it, then it means I really like it and need it in my life. Here are a few things that I need to keep around me on the regular:

Things I Buy Beautysets Makeup Wars: Things I Rebuy

1) Schick Intuition Naturals Razor – I don’t have a big shower (*and I’m lazy), so I like to be able to just make one swipe and shave my legs clean without the repeated lean down to lather up and THEN get to shaving.

2) Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes – I love to keep these by my bed for those nights I didn’t do a full clean up routine (*did I mention I am lazy?). These smell so good and I have even been known to mail some across country to folks who didn’t have them available in their area. People need these wipes.

3) Clairol Root Touch-Up – I swear, my grays grow faster than my color can fade, which is saying a lot for a bottle redhead. So, pretty much every 3 weeks, I’m doing a quick touch-up with this stuff. FYI, I heard they are updating this with a new brush and rounded tray, but I’ll tell you more about that later.

4) Swisspers Cotton Rounds – I use rounds for so many things that I can’t stand to waste time with flimsy rounds that fall apart after one swipe or a smidge too much product on them. These rounds stay together and can handle every thing from removing glitter off of multiple nails to removing drag queen-like lashes after a night out without falling apart.

5) Suave Dry Shampoo – I don’t fix my hair much during the week – it’s pretty much ponytail city every day (*Yep, lazy). But I still don’t want it to look greasy and LOOK like I didn’t wash my hair, so I rock this stuff pretty often. It’s cheap and it smells so dang good, besides helping me not look entirely gross every day.

So, these are just some of the things that I rebuy, besides feminine hygiene and dental care products (*do you guys want to hear about that stuff? I didn’t think so. But if so, I can make you up a beautysets graphic stat! ;)). Tell me, what are some of the items you regularly repurchase for your routines?

And, after that, go see what the other lovelies repurchase for themselves, too:

 Makeup Wars: Beauty Resolutions 2013
In this edition of “Makeup Wars” we are spilling the beans on our Beauty Resolutions for 2013. Now, I know I talked about how I was going to “Be Better” this year, and that can be kind of vague and far-reaching when it comes to what it is. In this case, I am more or less specific in what particular things I want to tackle in regards to my beauty life. Such as:

1) Get organized. You might wonder how this is beauty related, well, it’s simple. If I don’t know what I have, I can’t find it and enjoy it. *shrug* I’m ridiculous. I have just set up my product room in the last couple of months and have yet to have a process that is more than “everything now just goes in this room instead of all over the house”. I want to improve that situation.

2) Find the perfect foundation. You’d think I would have found this by now, but I have been lazy and just sticking to my tinted moisturizers and bb creams. I want something that works with my cool undertones, but doesn’t mattify my warm freckles, covers up redness, but doesn’t make me feel like I am wearing a mask. That’s not too much to ask for, right?

3) Wear red lipstick more. After *years* of proclaiming that I could NEVER find a red lippie that worked on me, I found it last September. So, now that I have defied the odds and captured my hue, I need to make a point to wear it on a regular basis. (*I did wear it to a party this past weekend, so I may be on my way with this one!)

4) Improve my techniques. I love makeup artist how to books. Boy, do I love them. I have *many*, of which I have looked at the pictures, and even the instructions, but read them like cookbooks for meals I would never cook, instead sticking to my tried and true regular meals, and ways of doing things. So, this year, I want to actually *use* my books (*I hear there are these makeup “tutorial” videos on YouTube, too icon wink Makeup Wars: Beauty Resolutions 2013 ) and work on how I actually apply all of these wonderful colors I surround myself with on the daily. I do NOT want to be making all of the obscenely gorgeous, yet time consuming and ridiculously technical eye looks that you see on Pinterest. I just want to make my look feel like I spent more than the 5minutes on it that I usually do.

So, that’s what I am going to work on this year? What are you going to work on yourself?

And don’t forget to check out the resolutions for all of the other Makeup Wars lovelies, too:
