january: the month of the cleanse

Is it just me, or is everyone doing some version of “the cleanse” this January? From the green juice varieties to the hardcore lemon juice fasts, these detox diets seem to be everywhere. Many of these devotees give up after a few days (hello, not eating?), but some rave about the benefits of eliminating almost everything.

hungry?

I decided to hop on the super hip cleanse bandwagon as well…have you ever heard of the 3-Day Makeup Cleanse? It’s not as popular as those liquid ones, but if you do it for 3 days, you’re 100% guaranteed to have a newfound love for your favorite beauty products. The prescription: only ONE makeup product allowed per day. And you can’t reapply. Here’s my very personal and challenging experience with the Makeup Cleanse:

Day 1 – since my lashes are naturally blonde, my product of the day was BADgal lash. Now I’m already regretting not having my lashes tinted at the Benefit Boutique before starting my cleanse. My dark undereye circles are completely visible to the world – help.

Day 2 – surviving yesterday without concealer was sooo hard. Today I am rocking erase paste and feeling a little better, but still wish I could put on some more eye makeup. I also wish I could wear a hat at work.

Day 3 – this cold weather has rewarded me with chapped lips, so benetint lip balm is my product for the day. Now I have a rosy pout, but a pale face. I dabbed a bit of the lip balm on my cheeks for some color, but man, what I wouldn’t do for some bronzer! Is the cleanse over yet?!

absence makes the heart grow fonder

Whew! That sure was tough. But I gotta admit, I do feel reinvigorated in my beauty routine! If you had to do the Makeup Cleanse, what ONE product would you pick to wear for a full day?

  1. For example, the “out of memory” exception error can be
    fixed by installing. It is the most important step for you to fix runtime
    R6016 error and avoid other runtime errors effectively.
    ocx or DLL files, you can re-register the registry list to fix
    R6016 error.

  5. After you flush, you cross your fingers because lately you’ve
    been grabbing the plunger quite a bit. To flush your electric water heating system start by turning off the power,
    and the water to the heater. In addition to these problems,
    installing fixtures such as toilets requires a process which, if not followed to the letter, may
    cause the DIY homeowner to remove the fixture and try again.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects ass yours and
    I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

  13. While using dermatologist recommended wrinkle creams might be more expensive, you will
    be guaranteed a product that is both higher quality and more safe.
    So if you want a cream that will fight to keep wrinkles away for good then this
    is the best product on the market. Finally, De – Lucia said many supermarkets don’t properly
    store eggs.

    Hi BUZZarella, may I know what is the brand of this makeup bag and where did you buy it?? :)

    • BUZZarella says:

      Hi there! I bought this makeup bag at Sephora a while back, but I don’t think they still carry this model. Henri Bendel sells a very similar model of makeup bag that is available for purchase online…hope that helps!
