The Weekend Blogger: Bit of hauling
Saturday, June 28, 2008

I shop rather strategically now; long gone are the days of carefree middle-class browsing. An item is either astronomically expensive, requiring months, even years, of planning to acquire, or else ... [more]
The Weekend Blogger: Mixed bag
Sunday, June 22, 2008

A photo tour of Iran...the music is killer I suspect I have nothing cohesive to say, so have elected to use a bullet list. Skin. Finally used the last squeeze of Dr. Hauschka's Cleansing Cream. ... [more]
The Weekend Blogger: Back to work
Tuesday, May 27, 2008

Dr. Hauschka Lipstick Novum, Novum LipGloss, and lipstick Being an eternal cheapskate, I went shopping today to replace...a lipstick, Dr. Hauschka #09 Elephant Pharmacy in Berkeley. ... [more]
Just Notes: The Weekend Blogger
Saturday, May 24, 2008

Contemplating trying my hand at a regular feature, titled--surprise!--"The Weekend Blogger." But let's see if I can produce something intelligible on a weekly basis, in the first place. Shoes. I ... [more]
Just Notes: What I've been into, lately
Saturday, April 26, 2008

Salux Beauty Skin Cloth. A marvel of modern engineering; I'm impressed with it, every shower. I use half the soap I normally would, without skimping on lather. Any keratosis pilaris-y bumps are ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Skincare thoughts
Sunday, March 02, 2008

Science! Oh well, I broke down and bought Dr. Hauschka's Cleansing Milk today. My local health food store now carries this brand, thus negating the need to travel to Berkeley. I experienced a ... [more]
Just Notes: What I've been into, lately
Friday, February 22, 2008

As much as Jean Patou's Joy perfume was created in 1930 to combat the Great Depression, it doesn't smell exuberant to me. I get the American-ness of the rose, but it is also an English rose, and ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Day Two of Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk
Monday, February 04, 2008

Finally getting around to trying this. I bring in new skincare products slowly, but that's because, when you have skin problems such as being acne-prone, you should do it that way. It then ... [more]
Beauty Notes: What I've been into, lately
Thursday, October 25, 2007

Nars Mambo eyepencil. I haven't felt like wearing eyeshadow, much, so eyeliner is key (and faster to put on, anyway). I had three liners back in August of this year, and found I reached for this ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka Novum LipGloss #04 Ruby
Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Considering I haven't been into gloss in a long time, this is a decent gloss. It doesn't have much of a flavor or fragrance...when I put it on, I detected a slight pleasant herbal, Dr. Hauschka-y ... [more]
Beauty Notebook: He blinded me with science
Tuesday, October 23, 2007

Dr. Rudolf Hauschka (1891-1969) was a chemist. That rather says it all. This is skincare for chemists; skincare that makes sense. There is a distinct engineering presence here, an effort to ... [more]
Beauty Notes: this 'n' that
Monday, September 24, 2007

I'm putting together which Montale perfumes to try. There are a lot of them; it would be expensive to try them all...and I don't actually want to try them all. I don't think it's necessary. I do ... [more]
Day Two of Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream
Thursday, September 20, 2007

I suppose I should preface this by saying I've never really been into skincare. Part, if not most, of my disinterest stems from having gotten adult acne at age twenty-nine. (Before I got adult ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick: makeup with a conscience
Wednesday, September 12, 2007

I've been wearing these lipsticks for a couple of weeks now (#01 Amoroso, #09 Dolce, #11 Effetuoso, and Lipstick Novum #04 Sand Dune). They are, without a doubt, good lipsticks. I hope that ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick #09, Dolce (pics)
Sunday, September 02, 2007

outdoors indoors + gratuitous earring shot :) This is more muted and natural than Dr. Hauschka #01 Amoroso: Where Amoroso is a coral red without shimmer, Dolce is a warm, somewhat shimmery, ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick #01, Amoroso (pics)
Saturday, September 01, 2007

I felt so inspired by this post, I felt like snapping some pics of my lipstick too! These pics came out a tad more saturated than real life...I was standing in front of a window (basically I ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Mom Makeup: The Early Years
Tuesday, August 28, 2007

Hm. Last night, after I published Mom Makeup, I realized that was "old Mom Makeup," and that the average new Mom would probably burst out laughing at the idea of having time to wear eyeshadow, ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Mom Makeup
Tuesday, August 28, 2007

Along with Mom Clothes, there should be Mom Makeup. I already had one of my kids, and was pregnant with the second, back when I discovered beauty messageboards. Part of my makeup quest has ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick #01, Amoroso
Saturday, August 25, 2007

I feel this picture captures the shade a bit more accurately than the official swatch: In the swatch, Amoroso appears a sort of pinky peach. But it's actually a lovely, slightly bright coral ... [more]
How to choose a lipstick shade: then and now
Monday, August 06, 2007

How to choose a lipstick shade Since writing the original post, I used up MAC Sophisto and Strawberry Blonde, all the way down to their inner metal tubes. They're sitting in my Back to MAC empties ... [more]
And so, goodbye.
Sunday, July 29, 2007

Wah! My MAC Strawberry Blonde lipstick has finally bitten the dust. I'm using Clinique Apple Brandy now: It's a nice lipstick, but it's not the same. The MAC Lustre formula is superior, ... [more]
