AHA+BHA+Jojoba make good lip exfoliators

I mentioned awhile ago that I’ve been having problems wearing lip glosses and lipsticks.  My lips became very dry especially under air-conditioned environment and I had these white clumpy stuff from whatever I’m wearing on my lower lips.  Needless to say, I looked awful.  At first I thought it was the ingredients from my lip glosses and lipsticks causing some allergies but apparently it was not.  The issue was the dead skin on my lips which I never thought of removing!

What’s in my makeup bag?

Tine of Beautyholics Anonymous wanted to know what’s in my makeup bag. Well, I have lots of junk in there.  Let’s see…3 lipsticks, 4 lip glosses and 5 lip balms which I rotate, depending on what my hands get hold of when I dig in the bag.  The rest are my dry shampoo, a facial spritz, Mavapen, a pill case, a solid perfume and 2 hand creams. And I have a ZA Groovy Smoovy that I hardly use!

Why has my foundation color turned orange?

Sometime ago, some readers left comments in one of my entries that the Everyday Mineral foundation they’ve used changed to a darker tone after a few hours.  One even commented that hers turned to an orange hue!  I didn’t think I had a problem with mine until recently.  I noticed on at least two occasions, the color turned somewhat darker by the end of the day.  I also checked and noticed that my face was particularly oily on those days.   Is this what is meant by oxidization of makeup?
