Have you tried anything from Lime Crime? I really want to try their ‘Retrofuturist’ lipstick…
(edit): A couple of you have asked about the eye shadow primer- I will definitely do a review on it once I’ve given it a good run. It will be up most likely in the next fortnight, so watch this space!
|My 3mL sample of The Jojoba Company Cucumber and Guava Firming Eye Balm|
Highly effectatious blend of cucumber, guava, aloe vera, jojoba and gotukola to cool and sooth delicate skin around the eyes and reduce the appearance of fine lines. It gently firms and re-hydrates dry skin decreasing inflammation and puffiness and reducing tiredness and tell-tale dark circles. Comes with the natural sun protection of pomegranate. Not tested on animals
price: RRP $46.95 25mL
availability: selected pharmacies and health food stores. For list of stockists check http://www.thejojobacompany.com.au,
+ hydrates and nourishes the skin around the eyes without being too heavy.
+ great under eye makeup, particularly concealer (which looks cakey on my dehydrated eye skin).
+ has a light, fresh cucumber scent.
+ formulated without parabens, propylene glycol, mineral oils, and harsh chemicals.
+ packed with great botanical actives like Jojoba oil, Cucumber Extract, Green Tea, and Macadamia oil, which are all packed with antioxidants.
+ the Jojoba is cold pressed and harvested from the company’s own farm.
+ the soothing and hydrating properties of cucumber extract in this makes it ideal to use as an adjunct to irritating treatments like topical retinols and retin-A.
– If you are looking for something that will dramatically reduce fine lines, this is probably not going to give you the results on it’s own (judging by the ingredients). You probably need to look into stronger actives like Retin-A, 10%+ vitamin C, or DMAE to supplement an everyday eye balm like this one.

Bee Schaffer is not what you expect from the daughter of the Devil herself (the one that wears Prada, not the one with the horns).
A Columbia university graduate, she made it very clear that she did not want a career in Fashion (although she was happy to be Anna Wintour’s assistant for a little while). The surprising thing about her is her wholesome-ness and the general vibe you get that she is quite well adjusted. If I was Anna Wintour’s daughter I would probably be hospitalised with an eating disorder, with as many neuroses as pairs of Lauboutins- I’m not questioning Anna Wintour’s parenting skills, just saying that growing up right in the middle of that crazy fashion world would be… interesting.
So anyway, she’s incredibly beautiful and does sophisticated neutral makeup so well. Here are some Worship photos…
