Butter London Gets Into the Matte Game

I guess I pretty much expect a super flat look when I see the word “matte” in any lipstick name, however, this truth seems to only be when it comes to liquid lipsticks. I recently tried BUTTER LONDON’s new LIPPY Moisture Matte Lipsticks ($22 @ and So how did they do? Click after the pic to find out!

Emjoi To the Foot Rescue!

Even though the temps are dropping and you’re reaching for more closed-toed shoes, you can’t neglect your feet or pedi. So I’m super happy to share this device I discovered. It’s the EMJOI Micro-Pedi Nano Callus Remover ($24.95 @ and it’s to get rid of calluses and make feet super smooth.

Powered with two AA batteries, the roller that does the work is made with micro mineral particle to remove dead skin. And it does it fast, like rotating 30 times a second, fast! It doesn’t seem like that fast but they say it does with fully charged batteries. I used this over the weekend to attack some rough spots on my feet like on the outside part of my big toe and of course my heels. And wow, are my feet smooth and totally callus-free now! To clean this, you just pop out the roller and run it under water and it’s all clean and ready for the next use. And to get the flakes out of the machine, they include a tiny brush to do so, but I also found just blowing at it also worked. Be sure you only use this on dry feet, so I would recommend using this after removing nail polish and before washing your feet.


And they even sell replacement rollers in different “strengths,” like Coarse, Super Coarse, Xtreme Coarse and even Elbow Exfoliation rollers, for $19.95 for two.

What do you use to keep your feet smooth and callus-free? Do share in the comments!

Review+Swatches - Jouer Long-Wear Creme Mousse Eyeshadow

I love that there are quite a few different options when it comes to eye shadows – the finishes, the textures, if it comes in a pencil, pot or compact and then there’s the ones that comes in a creams or powder and and then there’s these spongy shadows like these from JOUER COSMETICS and their Long-Wear Crème Mousse Eyeshadows. I’ve tried similar ones like these here and here and like the texture and longevity so how do these differ? Find out after the jump!
