Jane Iredale HandDrink Hand Cream

Disclosure: Press sample. See bottom.   Winter is hitting my skin very hard this year. Between drinking water for two, the cold and bitter temperatures, and admittedly not maintaining my usual skin care routines, I have dry, flaky facial skin and dry, rough hands. It’s my hands that bother me most, though. Here’s a peek …

My Introduction to Glitter Daze

dont rain on my garden party 2

Disclaimer: Partial gift bag sample. See bottom. Sana, the founder and beauty behind Glitter Daze, told me that she’s loved nail polish since childhood.

Zoya Wishes Collection

Zoya Haven nail polish swatches and review on BeautyJudy 2014

Disclaimer: Press sample. See bottom. If you could wish for anything, what would you wish for? If I go with my knee-jerk reaction to that question…I admit that I’d wish for “just enough money.” Money that would make it easier for us to buy a house with a 20% down payment, have our baby girl and survive …

KBShimmer Men are from Mars-ala

KBShimmer Men are from Mars-ala Pantone Color of the Year 2015 Marsala nail polish review and swatches on BeautyJudy

Disclaimer: Press sample. See bottom. So, who else saw the Pantone Color of the Year and immediately started thinking of it in terms of nail polish, lipsticks and eye shadows?! My gut-reaction to Marsala as a nail polish color was actually a bit let down – I thought, “man, this looks like my mother’s mauve …

I’m still here – but this is why I’ve been quiet

baby schmidt 11w4d

Things have been awfully quiet on BeautyJudy. Last time I checked in, I mentioned that I haven’t been feeling well. I haven’t been able to stand the smell of nail polish or remover, and my nails have, quite frankly, gone to hell! I haven’t been wearing makeup much at all. And I haven’t had energy …
