Love the Coloricon line from Wet n Wild! This is such a beautiful bronzer, with a subtle sheen. Super blendable and just the right amount of pigment. It’s a warm tone but not orange. I would suggest this to fair to light-medium skin tones. If you’re a true medium or darker, I don’t think this would be a proper bronzer though I do think it would give depth and warmth to your skin. Overall, this gets a recommendation from me for sure!Wet N Wild® Coloricon™ Bronzer You’re Dragon Me Down
Finally a foolproof false lash!! These are amazing! Having hooded eyes, I struggle to find lashes that don’t overpower my eyes. Not only are these so easy to use, they are fluffy and just complement any eye look/shape. Yes, they are worth the price. Just be sure to take care of them and you get a ton of uses from them. The “no trim” feature is real. They just fit. Love!
Review for: Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer 3.3 oz more...
Korean skincare is known for being different and innovative, and this is no exception. When you first squeeze out the product, it’s a gel consistency. Then when applied to the skin, it’s morphs into a water-like substance unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. It really hydrates the skin without being heavy or greasy. I do recommend this for oily or combo skin rather than very dry skin. But it does give a lot of hydration and makes for a great under makeup moisturizer. Don’t fear the changing texture, it’s weird but it works!
I’m SO glad I got to try this lip mask because I never thought I needed one...but I was wrong. This stuff is amazing! It’s very thick but doesn’t feel heavy on your lips, and provides a nice barrier against the elements. Although this is a sleeping mask, I wear it anytime I want to provide extra protection in moisture to my lips. For example while I’m doing a facemask I’ll put this on, or before I do my make up. At first, I thought that this may be drying my lips out. But I realize that wasn’t the case. It was moisturizing the top layer of my lips and I did experience some peeling after the first few days. It was actually taking off the layer of dead skin to reveal soft soft supple skin underneath. Now with regular use, I don’t experience the dry skin. I know it seems like a lot of money at first but the tub will last forever! You need just the tiniest bit to pamper your lips. I can also see someone wearing this as lip balm if they live in harsh climates to provide a barrier to the elements. If you have used this and see dead skin on your lips, it’s just the process of the skin renewing itself. Don’t stop using it. Give it a few days and you’ll see how amazing this stuff works!
I was sent this complimentary by Influenster to test and for my honest review.
I know that this is a “favorite product, but I really don’t like it. The formula seems to dry my lips out more than moisturize them. It’s waxy, doesn’t stay on the lips for very long, and the color is very sheer. Every time I wore this, it moisturize my lips for a short time and then seem to dry them out afterward. This may provide temporary moisture but it really doesn’t work long term. I’d recommend a better moisturizer for your lips. Especially because you can find one around the same price.
Your childhood dreams of being a mermaid can finally come true! This highlighter palette is a mix of holographic colors that will make any makeup look out of this world. The formula is smooth and creamy, not chunky or filled with glitter. I wouldn’t suggest this for every day make up looks, but if you’re looking for something to take your make up game to the next level, this is it. Each pan has a different under town but is blindingly bright. Kat Von D never disappoints with her creative make up that allows us to show our creativity that we have on the inside on the outside. The packaging is stunning and easy to travel with. You can use these colors on the eye, face, lips, and body. I love that Kat Von D is vegan and cruelty free. No matter what your skin tone is, these bold colors will be flattering. I would definitely recommend this little beauty!
This is a very luscious concealer. But not extremely high coverage. It’s very moisturizing and doesn’t look crepey under the eyes. It leaves a beautiful radiant finish. You can describe Born This Way as a creamy, wet concealer whereas others are more drying. You do need to set this with a powder to keep it from creasing. If you’re looking for something to hide extreme discoloration or circles, this isn’t the concealer for you. But it’s perfect for brightening, highlighting, light concealing and bringing your face to life. Snag this for the “no makeup makeup” days!
