Plus, does she not have the most covet-worthy head of gorgeous red hair? She makes us want to be gingers. Without further ado, here’s a peek into the makeup bag of Miss Oops herself…
- Miss Oops If I Could Turn Back Time: I love this product because it’s usually always sunny here in Dallas and this product is great for reducing the appearance of sun spots and sun damage caused by harmful rays.
- Miss Oops Reign In Rosacea: I developed this product because I personally have rosacea so I wanted to create something that was going to be able to reduce flare-ups.
- Bath & Body Works Pocketbac in Japanese Cherry Blossom: I always carry an anti-bacterial hand sanitizer since I am a mother of two boys and busy going from activity to activity. This one is amazing – I love the scent that it leaves behind.
- Smashbox Limitless Longwear Lip Gloss SPF 15 in Eternity: I love this lipgloss in particular because it’s long-lasting, contains SPF and is a shade that I can wear all the time.
- Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil: This lip balms smell and tastes amazing and leaves my lips feeling soft.
- John Frieda for Conair Vent Brush Sleek Finish: I like to carry a brush with me in my bag as I have long hair which tends to get knotty at times.
- Thymes Kimono Rose Cologne Rollerball: This roll-on perfume is great to carry around. It’s small and portable and the scent is so pretty.
- Orbit Gum: I always like to keep gum in my makeup bag so I have something for after meals or whenever I need a little freshening up!
As you may have read last week on our blog, Miss Oops is a company that provides quick fixes for our many beauty woes. One of such woes is dry, unattractive feet. Having seen Miss Oops “Pedicure in a Bottle” in several stores, I was curious to see if the product held up to the name.
Most of the time when I’ve tried foot creams, I’ve been disappointed – they’re usually just a minty runny lotion that doesn’t do much to moisturize. Pedicure in a Bottle actually has ingredients that are meant to chemically slough off dead skin. Ingredients like glycolic and salicylic acid, shea butter, peppermint, menthol, and lavender are powerful weapons against cracks and callouses!
In Miss Oops’ typical campy style, instructions read “apply twice a day until you can no longer sand furniture with your feet, then use once a day for maintenance.” I used this daily at bedtime, then applied thick socks for maximum absorption. The smell was less lavender and more plastic-y, unfortunately. However, I did notice a definite smoothening and softening. Pedicure in a Bottle isn’t exactly the “be all and end all” of foot care, so I found myself prepping with this lotion then using a pumice stone in the morning, revealing fresh smooth skin, quicker than any other method I’ve tried.
If you do get regular pedicures, it’d be great to use to extend the length of time between visits. With the economy being in turmoil, I’ve been on a pedicure hiatus and this product will definitely be the tool to get me through it.
Miss Oops is a company founded for the sole purpose of solving whatever beauty and fashion faux pas that a modern woman may encounter. From double-sided tape to deodorant-erasing sponges, this company has a solution for your beauty woe. They urge women who love low rise jeans but hate all the backside exposure to “Say No to Crack!” by wearing Jaks. They are a stretchy double band of lacy material that is worn over the waist band of your jeans. The band fits snugly to eliminate “peekaboo” that you might experience when bending over or sitting and the overall illusion is that you’re wearing a lacy cami under your shirt.
I had really high hopes for Jaks, as I have, on occasion overexposed myself in the past. I tried the white Jaks in M/L on top of some low-riding trouser jeans before work. I liked how the Jaks fit nice and snugly over my jeans, creating a clean line and flattening my tummy a bit. However, as soon as I walked out the door, it shifted and scrunched all the way up to my natural waist line. As I walked, I had to pull down the Jaks and hold it, otherwise I’d have a funny looking lace band around my waist. I was noticeably uncomfortable, more so than if I mistakenly exposed my backside. As soon as I got to work I ran to the bathroom to rip off the band and haven’t revisited it since. I am wondering if I experienced trouble due to sizing – they are available in S/M and M/L, perhaps my Jaks was too snug for my hips so it migrated north.
Jaks are available in white, beige and black, and retail for $38. Let us know if you’ve ever tried it. Stay tuned for more reviews of Miss Oops products!
