Steppin’ Easy, Kyle, Founder of Feelgoodz: It all started when I was backpacking in Thailand. While walking through a night market in Bangkok, my flip-flops wore out and broke. Needing to find another pair, I walked up to a vendor’s display shaped like a tree with flops hanging from the branches. What I tried on was the most comfortable flip-flop I had ever worn.
Relieved to no longer be barefoot, I was curious why the flip-flops were so comfortable. I discovered they were made from 100% natural rubber tapped from Thai rubber trees, and that the local farmers have honed their techniques for extracting the sustainable resource. I was fascinated. The idea of comfortable, sustainable flip-flops was so captivating to me that I founded Feelgoodz in 2008.
Today, I’m still traveling to remote locations to discover new artisans and techniques. I am dedicated to bringing you the best products available and I’m thrilled that our partners in Thailand, Guatemala, Pakistan, and Vietnam all help to create our comfortable, all-natural products.
I recently tried some of Hard Candy Shadow Spheres Baked Eyeshadow pallettes, and I have to say that I am so impressed with them. First of all, each pallet comes with 10 colors, two applicators, and a mirror for on the go use. Each color can be used dry as an eyeshadow or wet, to use as an eyeliner to create a smokey effect. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of using an eyeshadow wet, so I thought it was really cool and also useful. Okay, when I first tried the eyeshadow out the first thing I noticed was how a little of this product can go a long way. Usually, it takes multiple coats of my normal eyeshadow to achieve the look I want, but with the Hard Candy pallettes I only needed one coat, which was a refreshing change from my average 3 coats. After I was done applying in the morning, I ended up wearing my makeup all the way into the night and I can’t complain, it lasted me literally all day and still looked really great without any smudging. And lastly, I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt to find makeup and other products that are animal testing free, so when I found out this company didn’t test on animals I was so happy and also gained a lot of respect for them as a business. With all this being said, I really encourage you to give these Hard Candy eyeshadow pallets a try, they’ll have you looking incredibly beautiful!

Kiko Milano makeup is currently one of my favorite stores in the mall for a couple of reasons. They always have really great, quality products and super affordable prices. The product that I was trying out this time was their Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in a nice purple shade. To be honest, when it comes to eyeshadow sticks I’ve always been a little wary just because in the past I’ve used some that were really greasy and smudged after wearing it for about an hour. But with this eyeshadow stick, I was really pleasantly surprised. The consistency of it has sort of a matte feel to it, so it didn’t feel greasy at all. Plus, they’re not kidding when they say it lasts for 8 hours. I wore it all day and it still looks as perfect as when I had just put it on! Plus it has just the perfect amount of shimmer where it can be worn for a day look without being overdone, and a fun nighttime look. And lastly, these eyeshadow sticks come in a variety of colors, so if you ever find yourself near a KIKO store I highly suggest that you go give some of these eyeshadow sticks or their other amazing products a try!
