I am not sure what local conditions are like for you, but with the turn of the season my hair and skin freak out. So...maybe it's not the oil-cleansing method that's causing your hair to be really dry? Also, some oils are harsher on your skin than others and can eventually over-dry. I can't remember which ones though.

Yeah, it could be, but our autumn is so mild its hard to believe, and the rains haven't really started yet. It's been 18-25 degrees day and night all month. I might need to get more sophisticated with the oil-cleanse, because it is more pleasant than using soap for me (today I just did nothing and it seems to have balanced out a bit and my face feels normal) and I've just been using olive oil so far. I may need to try the more astringent types. The hair, alas, I think I'm giving up on at the moment. I've tried quitting shampoo a few times before, and either I'm doing it wrong, or it just benefits from being washed. (I only shampoo once every 4-5 days though.)

Yeah I can't do no-shampoo, but I have weaned myself off my previous frequency (3-4 times a week) and I usually only shampoo once a week now. You don't have to go all the way, just need to find a balance that works with your hair!

I've done the oil-cleansing thing a lot, and it really helped clear my skin up. I use a mix of castor oil and jojoba oil, though, and sometimes add a couple of drops of lavender or tea tree essential oils to my blended bottle of oil. 

I do moisturise afterwards, but I often actually just use a couple more drops of jojoba oil to do that.

No -- I was just looking at Fenty yesterday and wondering if I should take the plunge. I'm really trying to curtail my makeup buying habit for the winter, but I would totally buy a good sky-blue lipstick

I was handed a Natura catalogue (Brazilian brand of cosmetics) a few days ago. I was looking for a particular lipstick that seems that is not continued anymore (at least in this last issue), but ended up shopping a couple of creams, a triphasic shower oil, and 2 metallic lipsticks. They are not the long lasting ones I was trying to purchase, but the colors got my attention. I bought Pink and Uva (metallic both). Although I checked some swatches before ordering, I'm not sure if they'll suit until I receive them. 

On the other hand, I'm having right now an allergic reaction (probably due to bedbugs or some other creature found in hostels' mattresses :angry:), so doctor said no creams, perfume, nor make up till the reaction calms down (and also diet, that is what is killing me right now :crying:).

those are rad colors! 

(good luck with calming your skin down, though. Nothing worse than being an angry hive of welts)

So I am going to jettison the Anastasia eyeshadow palette I own. It's just TOO FUCKING HARD to use. Totally unforgiving.

YOU GUYS. There's this thing? This thing here -> Distortion from Urban Decay.

I'm kind of elated and annoyed at the same time. The top row, the ones they call shifts, are all the kind of thing I wanted in a single palette - ONLY light metallic shades. Goddamn, why can't someone make a palette like that? I already have enough that are big, bold colours. I want subtle shades so that I can do mostly light, with some dark accents. Most palettes seem to be the inverse of that.

But, I think I might need this one anyway, you know? Just in case. But in the meantime if you see anything which is just pale metallic shades please mention it in here.

Thank you. :) HIGHLIGHT EVERYTHING. Also, I timed this really badly as friend on holiday in new York messaged me yesterday asking if I wanted anything in Sephora and I could have sent her on a palette quest for me.
