~LUSH Ocean Salt~ Fall exfoliation

It's the first week of fall, and you know what that and hibernation.  No really, when it comes to beauty, fall is the time when I begin exfoliating my body regularly.  I've been at the lake all summer and despite wearing globs of sunscreen, I still managed to burn.  Well now I need to scrub all of the dead skin that my body isn't naturally shedding. As you get older your body's skin renewal process takes longer so instead of a 20-something's every  26-28 day renewal, 30+ slows down and the body tends to hold on to more dead skin cells rendering the skin dull and lifeless.  Well thank goodness there are products on the market to help speed along the process.  My favorite for the last few months has been LUSH Ocean Salt. It's grainy enough to do the job, but not abrasive. It's also not greasy, which I can appreciate especially since I tried Fresh's exfoliation and didn't like it. It left me feeling like a greaser. Back to Lush, they finally opened a Lush store here in Albuquerque a little over a month ago, and it just love their products.  They're all natural, smell great, and are reasonably priced.

Maybelline's Olive Martini Quad * Best Buy of the Month*

Maybelline's Olive Martini Eyeshadow Quad has been a Youtube sensation for a while now, and when I went to CVS yesterday and saw it I thought I'd give it a try considering it was the last one.  I tried the colors this morning and I loooove it! The darker "green" is actually a burgundy/brown with a hint of green just a shade lighter than the darkest color, which was surprisingly delightful.  As I was applying it, my teenage daughter walked into my bathroom and said, ooh! I want to try it.  So I applied the surprising green color to her crease, and WOW it makes green eyes look fabulous. All four of these colors have a great formulation.  They are all pigmented, blendable, and wear nicely.
Overall, this is one of the best eyeshadow quads I've seen Maybelline release.  I think it is worth scooping up just for the middle two shades... both are unique and hard to find in other brands.  These quads retail for roughly $9, but at CVS I picked up the quad and a lipstick for $16 and got $3 in extra bucks. So I paid $13.  Let me know if there are any eyeshadows that you've picked up lately that you love!
