BECCA’s blushing Gypsy & Songbird

We all know that I am a fan of blushes that are not powder. That doesn’t mean that I don’t ever wear a powder blush, that just means I am really selective when I do. As my lovely skin ages, I do not like to use a powder that is drying, making me look harsh, of which I am certainly not (*in a scientific study of me, by me).

So, when I had a chance to try these new BECCA Mineral blushes, I had to give them a try. These anti-oxident rich blushes are alcohol, talc and other filler-free – which are common ingredients that can cause a drier finish. It does contain finely milled with micro-fine, illuminating mineral particles to give a luminous glow, with out the glitter that is so not kind to us older lovelies.

These new colors are “Gypsy” (a ballerina pink) and “Songbird” (a peachy pink) – both can look a bit bright in the pan, (*and on my heavy swatches), but they blend out super sheer and buildable. Check out the blushes in natural light:

These are on counters now and run $32USD.

What is your blush preference? Are you a powder only lovely? Or do you layer – cream on bottom, powder on top?

Suave soothes the dandruff itch

Do you guys remember when the only choice in dandruff shampoo was the blue, chalky stuff? The one that made your hair feel like straw afterwards, but you suffered thru because it was drying out, and clearing up, your flakes? Yeah. The Suave Scalp Solutions Nourishing Coconut and Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner are not like that. At all.

With all of these ridiculous 110+degree temps around here in Oklahoma, I was sweaty all the time with my hair in a ponytail, and my scalp was acting all wonky – itchy and dry, then greasy. So, I gave these a shot to see if it could balance it out. I was pleasantly surprised that not only did it help to regulate my temperamental head, but my hair was ridiculously soft and silky when I was out of the shower. I did not expect that. I had hoped that with the shea that it would be softer than the straw my hair used to get back in the day. It did that and more.

Now, since we all know I color my hair red and that is the first to fade, I don’t use this very often, but that’s only because I am paranoid – I was assured that this is safe for color-treated hair. And, since the sweet scent of coconut isn’t too cloying, & with a hint of something else that makes it more “fresh” than “beach party”, I have been able to get some of the rest of the fam to use it, too. That definitely makes this inexpensive set (around $3-4USD each) a bargain, since more folks can/will use it.

Fess up – have any of you used an anti-dandruff poo/cond lately?
