Guest look - Snooky Make up

My fiance's cousin's wife (confusing huh?) just started posting videos and I wanted to share this one she did for a Snooky Halloween look. I really like it. The video isn't in english but it's the international language of make up, so it's pretty easy to follow along. Enjoy!!

Glymm October

So I guess I ordered the re-occurring monthly Glymm box. That was kind of a surprise. Anyway, even though I didn't want it, here's what I got.

When I first opened it:

Customer Service = Brand Loyalty

I need to get off the topic of beauty for a moment and just talk about retail and customer service in general. This past weekend I went shopping at what I think to be a pretty fair sized mall in my area, and had the worst customer service experiences of my life. Simply due to the fact that EVERY store I went into I wasn't treated to my expectations.

I don't expect much. But a little customer service goes a long way. I'm more likely to spend $100 at a place with great customer service, than $2 at a place with shitty service.

Lets start with where I began. I walked into the mall through The Bay. The country's oldest shop, right? I see signs for Lancome's Gift with Purchase. I LOVE G with P. I'll buy whatever the minimum is just to get the free stuff. It's really worth it. Most of my favorite eyeshadow palettes were G with P. I look around at the counter, trying to remember what products Michelle Phan has used in a video I liked, since she's a Lancome spokes person. I found a mascara. PERFECT! They're about $40 and the G with P is for a purchase of $38 or more.

Skin79 BB Cream - eBay

I wanted to take a moment to let you know where I got my new BB Cream from. This cost me about $59 at Crystal Mall (an asian import mall here in Vancouver), but this only cost me $16 including upgraded shipping with a tracking number. This is everything I recieved:

A 40g container of the BB Cream, a sample of the BB Cream, a sample of the Gold BB Cream, and a sample of what looks like a serum.  Along with a letter addressed to me from the CEO of the company, informing me of a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

I bought from who had great communication, and quick shipping/feed back. I ordered this late Sunday night and they gave me a tracking number within 2 hours, of course that makes it mid Monday in Korea.The products came in bubble wrap in a perfect sized box, I hate over sized boxes or worse the envelopes.

I have no affiliation with this but just wanted to share my positive experience. If you're thinking of buying the Skin79 BB Cream I suggest this seller on eBay.

Quo Facial Polish

I got this when I was looking for a new exfoliator. My Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant has finally ran out. This cost me about $10 at Shoppers Drug Mart.

 The directions instruct to use after cleansing your face, and massage gently avoiding the eye area. Rinsing after. It also says to use it 1-3 times a week. You really don't want to over exfoliate.

The texture is a thick cream with micro beads that do not dissolve.

At first I really liked this product, it was gentle but I felt like it was doing something, because of the beads. Then I went to wash it away and I felt like it leaves an oily film on my face. My face is combo, leaning towards oily, and I don't really want my face left with a residue after I wash it.

Now I use it but I'll cleanse again after to remove the film. I feel like it does a good job of exfoliating. I don't get red or irritated from it, which is common for me. My skin is very sensitive.

I would recommend this product if you have a drier complexion, and are looking for a little something extra to moisturize. If you're combo/oily like me, take a pass on this one.
