When I found out I was receiving this blush for my September BoxyCharm I wasn't too please because of the shimmer in the blush. I'm not a highlight person and prefer matte blushes so this wouldn't be my first pick. I was surprised that when I applied the blush it actually gave me a blushed-glow without the excessive shimmer. My only complain would be that I wish the color was a bit less pinky. I definitely prefer peachy tones for my cheeks.
If you're looking for a brush that will work for your liquid foundation, check out the Sigma F80. This infamous brush –used on so many makeup tutorials– does a great job of applying foundation without leaving your skin cakey or streaky. I have tried a couple of brushes that no matter how much I blend, I can still see the brush strokes on my skin. You won't have that issue with this brush.
Drinking water has been a huge struggle for me. But I've found that the task is a lot easier when I'm constantly carrying a water bottle to remind me to stay hydrated. I've been able to try a lot of different beverage containers, however, none of them are as good as the S'Well. This bottle not only fits my minimalist aesthetic, it also functions better than any bottle in the market. For one, it keeps water cold for 24 hours. Trust me, it does! I've kept my bottle lying around the apartment for a whole day and when I go back to it the water is still cold. It claims to keep hot beverages hot for 12 hours, however, I can't say this is true as I have not tried it before!
Just WOW! While I haven't had the opportunity to try out the Insta-famous "Jet Lag" mask, I was able to give this bad boy a try. Let me tell you it does not disappoint. As someone who doesn't like to exfoliate because most of the products on the market can be too rough or abrasive on the skin, this product has the perfect amount of scrub making it gentle enough to use daily. It is recommend to be used whenever you skin need some TLC but I can definitely see myself using it more frequently. I applied the product on my skin in circular motion and allowed it to sit for 10 minutes, as recommended. I was left with glowing, smooth skin. 😍 Definitely a must have, especially as we approach the colder season!
I am seriously obsessed with Nerds. While I wouldn't describe myself as a candy lover, I do enjoy the occasional treat. Whenever I do get those sweet urges, Nerds are my number one choice. I think I also enjoy eating them because they remind me of my childhood.
I am a sheet mask aficionado! So when my colleague gifted me this mask, I immediately went home and tried it. I really enjoyed this product because it wasn't dripping in serum like some mark brands on the market. It left my skin feeling hydrated and glowing without any sticky residue. Of course, it's also looks pretty luxe on your skin thanks to the gold foil.
The beauty editor at my previous job knew I loved luxury makeup and gifted me this powder. While the packaging does scream "luxe" the powder itself could be a lot better. I typically use to set and absorb any excess oil, which it does a great job. But in terms of pore blurring, it neither helps nor makes it worse. Wish it performed a lot better because the packaging is adorbs and it applies on your skin with the Givenchy logo.
Ugh, I REALLY wanted to love this foundation but it just didn't work for me! Let me start by saying this foundation is FULLLL coverage. There is a reason why the word "tattoo" is in the product name. This bad boy can cover anything –including tattoos. With that being said I don't mind that this has a full coverage formula but what I do not like is the heaviness that come with it. Unlike most foundations which are on the watery side, this product is very thick and creamy so you immediately feel it sitting on your skin once you apply it. If you don't mind the feel of foundation, check this out. If you prefer you products to not be as heavy, I would skip.
Where has this powder been all my life?! While I've only been adding this product to my water daily for a little under a month, I already see drastic results. My nails, which are typically super brittle and tend to peel, are harder than ever. I've taken vitamins and biotin before in hopes of getting my nails to grow but nothing has worked as well as this powder. I've also noticed my hair getting a lot more shiner (not in a gross, oily way) and a bit longer. Will definitely continue to drink!
