Obsession Du Jour: Neutrogena

Hi Everyone, I know, I know! I have been a very bad blogger. I have excuses though! I just moved! It was fashion week and now it is market week for buyers! Its a lot going on! I promise I am back and will be posting a lot more regularly again.

Anyway, I wanted to let you guys know a secret. I have been so busy I haven't even really been taking care of my skin, I know, horrible also. Anyway, interestingly enough my skin is in perfect condition now. I attribute this to making the decision to not wear foundation anymore and to the below product (I will make a post on the no-foundation thing next).

The Neutrogena Oil-Free makeup wipes have been a god send for me. I have tried tons and tons of makeup wipe type of products. I hate the MAC ones, they are greasy and hurt my face, Ive tried the Korres, which smell amazing but are expensive. These babies are only 5.49 and available at every drugstore. I really like these because they remove every trace of makeup without leaving any residue or greasy feel, hence you don't need to rinse off. I find that when a product leaves residue that is when you are going to break out! This is so key for me when I have very late nights and fall into bed around 4am way too lazy to wash my makeup off. I leave a packet of this next to my bed for this very reason.

Also, a key point of these are that they have pore un-clogging agents. I looked at the ingredients and basically its just salicylic acid but my skin responds well to this.

Have any of you tried these? What do you think?
What is your favorite makeup wipe brand?

Obsession Du Jour 9.10.10

This is an oldie but a goodie that I just re-discovered. The nail polish came out with the MAC Style Black collection. I cut my nails very short for fall as I believe you must have short nails to pull off fall vampy colors. That being said, I have been on the hunt for my new color for fall and I found it!

It is called Baby Goth Girl and it is a very deep dark aubergine with micro fine red shimmer and a few larger flecks. The larger flecks are still very subtle. I am absolutley in LOVE with this color. The formula is spot on, no streaks, perfectly thick and smooth without being chunky.


I have only used this a few times but I think this will b my go to for this fall. I wish I had another bottle. I have not been able to find an exact dupe of this color anywhere. However, there are some that are close.

A few close colors might be:
Sinful Colors Nail polish for $2 in Rich in heart (a little less purple)
China Glaze in Mummy May (Big shimmer particles)
NARS Purple Rain (way more purple)

Do you have this color? Are you in love with it as much as I am?
