This is the third post with a look that I am doing for Moxie Reviews.  My two other posts were Urban Decay Electric Palette, and a Halloween Look. In today’s post, I’ll be using the new Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette. That Palette, as well as all of the other cosmetics that are listed in this post are cruelty free.

Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray Review

Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray

Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray is something that I previously let you know about (in 2012), and I’m still purchasing products in the line!

While Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray is marketed as a great natural deodorant for men, I use it because it’s a great deodorant, and I love the fact that it’s vegan! The company had a goal to develop a deodorant  for men who “demand performance and variety in their deodorants while expressing concern over what is going on their bodies and into the environment.” In case you’re wondering if you’ve read or heard the name before, Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray is from the makers of Crystal Deodorants. In addition to providing a statement that they have not and never will test its products on animals, it is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny and PETA.

Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray Deodorant  writes that “we respect your body,” so they do not have the following:

Unlike some of the leading deodorants and antiperspirants, Crystal Rock Deodorant takes all its ingredients from nature. Of course, you don’t want body odor, but you certainly don’t want to do that with harmful harmful synthetic chemicals. Crystal Rock Deodorant contains purified water, natural mineral salts and natural fragrances from nature.

After all these years, I can write that Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray has never left a stain, unlike many of the conventional deodorants that I’ve tried.

Crystal Rock Deodorant Spray

  Unscented (just natural odor protection)

Onyx Storm, fresh & zesty, uses hints of ho wood, cedarwood and geranium bourbon

Cobalt Sky, spicy & warm, is infused with West Indian Sandalwood and vanilla

Granite Rain, masculine & woodsy, has hints of bergamot, citrus and sage

 Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray

While mainly used for underarms, Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray can be used anywhere on the body, neck or chest.

I encouraged my husband to test all of the Crystal Rock Deodorant scents, and he did agree with what Howard Stern, the “Shock Jock of Sirius Satellite,” has said of Crystal Rock Deodorant, “F-ing Fantastic.” I first tested the Unscented one, and as a woman, I had no issues with my pores clogging, or anything else for that matter. Since then, I’ve tried all of the scents, but I like to wear a fragrance, and I find the unscented to be the most practical for me. I have purchased it in not only the spray version, but also what is “new” since I’ve reviewed the line is an unscented stick version!

Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray

So here’s the bottom line: While Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray is marketed for men it’s a natural deodorant that women can use, as I do.  I have continued to use the Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray line because it keeps me smelling fresh without clogging pores (and love that they’re vegan). My husband also still uses Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray and has had similar results. The Crystal Rock Deodorant Body Spray is a great value at $5.00, or less. Reminder, that even natural deodorants can cause irritation, so if for some reason you do have any irritation, stop use immediately!

Crystal Rock Deodorant

Purchase online at the Crystal Rock Deodorant store or at your local pharmacy.

Disclosure: None. While the first time I reviwed the products they were received for review, this time I have nothing to disclose. I am reviewing again because I continue to purchase the products! All links are for your convenience only.

Urban Decay Electric Palette Wearable Look

 Urban Decay Electric Palette

This is my second post for Moxie. Here’s the first look that I did for Halloween. This next look was requested by a reader comment who said that she was afraid to buy the Urban Decay Electric Palette because the colors were too bold. I think that this look is easy to follow; and if you haven’t purchased the Urban Decay Electric Palette, hopefully you will after this post!

I used Soap and Glory Wonderbronze under my cheekbones and temples.

Soap & Glory Glow All Out highlighter powder on top of my cheek bones, eyebrows, jawline and the bridge of my nose.

I used the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder to finish off my foundation. This left a matte finish because I have very oily skin.

Urban Decay eye shadow from  Naked Basics palette in Naked 2 on the lid, Faint through the crease and blended upwards.

Then put a little bit of Crave on the outer corner, and Chaos on the outer corner and through the crease, but don’t blend it out.

Gel liner set in place with the Naked Basics Crave and Urban Decay 24/7 waterproof liner in Bobby Dazzle.  Barry M Lash Vegas for mascara. A little bit of Barry M Cosmetics lip gloss on the lips.

It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You

It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You Five Piece Collection, which, of course, is cruelty free, has its debut as a QVC Today’s Special Value (TSV) on Tuesday, October 14, at midnight (EST).  This Collection has 5 full sized products, including two new ones! There is the new CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush, which will be prominently featured, and the new Hello Lashes Extensions 24HR Mascara, which will have it’s worldwide launch! After I received the Collection, I got right to work to test the products.

It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Double Airbrush Foundation Brush

It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You

It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You

Oh, how I love all of my It Cosmetics brushes! Wait till you see this one in person. It’s custom-designed, incredibly luxe, and has plush dual fiber brush hairs. So why do you need this brush? The brush head will allow you to easily build the amount of foundation coverage you need and will give your face an airbrush finish. While I just started using this one, I can confidently write that I’m sure it will perform like all of the other It Cosmetics brushes that I have: it will not shed with all the use you’re going to be getting out of it!

It Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

There are ten shades of the No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner that It Cosmetics sells. The one that is in this Collection is the Black Brown shade. I think that this is a great choice to include since I’m guessing a lot of people have already purchased the black color, as well as the brown. The Black Brown gave me such a nice, rich, dark color, that, as you can see from the photo, is incredibly pigmented.  I also like that when you apply the liner you will be amazed at how well the color glides on your eyes. Yes, it really is “no-tug.” I love that this is a self sharpening eyeliner, as I’m always looking for one of the (at least) 7 sharpeners that I own. The eyeliner sets very quickly, and it doesn’t smudge! Make sure you have a  waterproof eye makeup remover, cause you’re going to need it. As advertised, it really is an outstanding, completely waterproof eyeliner.

The eyeliner is free of parabens, fragrance, and sulfate!

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination Full Coverage Anti-Aging Foundation

I reviewed this anti-aging Foundation in the color Fair when it launched at the end of 2013. It’s a full coverage matte powder that is designed to add illumination to your skin. It Cosmetics advertises this Foundation as being one that will never crease or crack, and this is true! I sometimes have some dry flaky patches on my skin, so I applied a moisturizer and primer prior to applying. However, if you have oily skin, I think this would be perfect for your skin. You should just be able to apply the Foundation, and, as advertised, in less than a minute you’ll be done!
There is a brush in a compartment above the foundation, and a very nice sized mirror.

Here’s a swatch in Tan:

It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Extensions 24HR Mascara

Wow. You’re going to love the brand new Hello Lashes Extensions 24HR Mascara. I can’t think of anything that anyone would object to about this mascara. Here’s what I love about it: it has a truly blackest of black color. I have black lashes and this made them even darker! The formula s great. It made my lashes look just like what they promised: thick and dramatic, as though I was  wearing false lashes–but without actually  having to apply the false lashes. And, I was able to get the look in just one coat of mascara!  The lash-enhancing and conditioning ingredients include green tea.

CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush

Like me, you’re going to love the CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush in the shade of Je Nas Sais Quoi. It has an incredibly velvety texture with the usual It Cosmetics flawless finish. The very pigmented color lasted nine hours on me without any fading at all.

Just apply a little bit of the blush for a sheer wash of the Je Nas Sais Quoi color, or keep building it up for the full effects of the gorgeous color. The CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush has a design that moves from a light pink, a dusky pink, and then to a rosy pink.

You can mix the blush anyway you want! However, you’ll find that if you move your blush brush upward you’ll  get the paler pink color; if you move your blush brush downward, you’ll get a darker shade of rosy pink.

 

It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You

I have not been provided with the item number, or the price of the Collection. Update: The price is $54.96 Good until October 15, 2014 2:59 a.m. ET . Shipping & Handling: $3.00 The product# is A260772

 

Just remember that the It Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You will not debut until October 14th on QVC, and on their website  QVC.com , so if you look for it you won’t find it until launch day. I highly recommend you buy this; and I would tell you to purchase things separately if you couldn’t afford the whole Collection. However, the CC+ Radiance Ombré Blush is not yet available for purchase separately– so until it is, you’ll only be able to buy it in this Collection.
