Rewind: Looking Back At 3 Discontinued Products Because We Can

discontinued-review

 

As I will be on holiday for March, I wanted to leave you all with another beauty-based post! I actually had some discontinued but never used makeup products I still want to show in a post, and since there are so many makeup companies and millions of products out there, there are constantly products that are discontinued because they didn’t have the right marketing to get the word out successfully, including a new brand or line of products that are obsessed about and others fall off the radar. Or on the other end of the spectrum, they were just bad products.

We’re going to look at three products from three different brands and we’ll see if they were missed holy grails or a complete waste of time.

Note: These products are discontinued (from approx. 2016-2017) and, thus, possibly expired or close to expiry, which can affect the scent. I doubt these products will separation or that type of rancidity issues.
Any signs of expiry will be taken into consideration when reviewing.

Review: Nars Lipstick Pencils

Nars-lipstick-review-cruella-rikygien

 

Wow, our first makeup review for 2019! I’ve been rummaging through some of my things and found this little duo from Nars in shades Cruella and Rikugien!
Believe it or not, I haven’t had much time playing with Nars; sure I have the Orgasm blush, played with the Creamy Concealor and I like the shades available in their Multiple sticks, but that’s really it.
So today I’m really excited to look at two of their lip products, in particular, their lipstick pencils. While it’s a packaging move you don’t see much of, me and my tiny lips actually like lipstick pencils as it gives you the coverage of a normal lipstick with more of the application ease of a lip liner.

Let’s look into it a bit more.

First off I just want to thank you all for your patience while I was gone. We are back to scheduled programming.. which I guess is my awful time management of this site!

I thought the best slide-back-into-your-lives post would be in the form of a smooth and crispy, salty and sweet snack using two ingredients that are the building block of Greek cuisine: feta and filo/phyllo pastry.

Hey guys,
I was getting a new post ready for you, however, I’ve received some news about an overseas friend that passed away yesterday so I’m just taking a few days to get my head together, but we’ll be back soon.

I Tried Making A Three Ingredient Chocolate Mousse!

Whenever I see a recipe that says “Easy” or proclaims to have less-than-five ingredients, I am immediately sceptical. I know it’s stupid because there are hundreds upon thousands of baking and cooking recipes that prove my scepticism wrong, but still, I am for a second going “Pfft, can’t be that easy.” Is it because I can screw up the simplest of tasks? Oh, that certainly plays a role.

So, naturally, when I saw Kitchen Cents‘ recipe for “Easy 3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse”  I was sceptical but curious. If I can make mousse with three ingredients? Just dump it all in and blend?

Okay, I’ll give it a go.
