Products I am currently using

I have a bunch of things I've been meaning to review but that means taking the pictures and thinking about them and blah blah blah, and even though I actually have this week off and have all the time in the world to do such things, I can't be bothered. I'm in a bit of a funk - I'm a bit miserable about my job, I hate not having as much money to throw around now that I am single (though truth be told, that can only do me good), I've had a low level cold/virus/bug thingie for a week or so, and my ankle hurts for some mysterious reason. So I'm wallowing a bit and not doing much of anything productive.

Anyway, today I am going to steal an idea from The Mustard Jumper and just tell you what products I am using at the moment. It might seem a bit of a weird list, because I'm still on my No Buy and working through things I have, including a lot of stuff I received as samples or freebies that I would not normally buy myself.

So what are you guys using at the moment?


  1. OK... so much fodder... where do I begin... when did you get those concealers?????

  2. Ooh what's Essie Angora Cardi like? Sounds lovely

  3. Jacquie, I've had those concealers forever. Bought them from Strawberrynet.

    Stefanie, Angora Cardi is great - a really nice muted purple/mauve colour. And it has a nice consistency too - I've found some of the Essies can be a bit streaky or dodgy. This is definitely one of the better ones. :-)

  4. The only exciting thing I am using is a sample of KMS Add Volume and guess what... IT DOES!!! Even when I haven't blow dried my hair, it's still got foof. Happy with that.

    SO at least my hair is looking awesome even if the rest of me looks like crap!

  5. Oooh, I might have to get me some of that there Add Volume!
