Comparison: Zoya Dark Greys

Some of these polishes look a little similar, so I did a comparison for you. From top to bottom in each pictures it's Zoya Evvie, Noot, Kelly, Evvie. 
 This 1-2 coats of each and all the formulas are great.

 Noot is much darker than the others, and I never realized how much blue/purple really Kelly really had until I compared her to much more normal grey like Noot. Evvie is lighter than Noot and is supposed to have a slight hint of green, but that is very hard to see for me. Maybe it's just my skin tone, because I have seen loads of green swatches.

They definitely aren't dupes, that's for sure. Which do you have or want? Which do you like best?

DIY Natural Eye Makeup Remover

So I heard someone say they use coconut oil as makeup remover and it sounded like a good idea! Coconut oil is a 4 on the comedogenic rating list, so it didn't seem like a good idea to use it on my whole face. But around my eyes, the extra moisture sounded like a great idea. 

I made a little comparison video for you guys and came up with a very simple two ingredient recipe. You can choose any essential oils you like for the second ingredient. I chose frankincense because it can help with wrinkles and no eye cream I've ever used has actually helped with that. We'll see how it does with my wrinkles, but it's seriously great at removing makeup. I just made some for my Mother-in-law and I added a little lavender because it's great for skin.

Have you tried making an all natural makeup remover? How did it go? Which essential oils would you add?

Search Facebook From Your Phone

My team has this really awesome educational Facebook group about essential oils called Drop Talk. It's a place where you can ask things like "which oil is good for coughs" and "I have lavender but what else can I do with it." I love reading what worked or didn't work for other people too. It's a great resource. 

So this applies to Drop Talk and really any Facebook group at all. This is a video tutorial I made that shows you how to use the search feature to search the group when you're using an Android smart phone. The Facebook app doesn't have that feature. 

Let me know if this helped you or if you have any other tutorial ideas you'd like to see!
