Review for Frank Body Express-O Coffee Scrub - 1 week, 2 days ago
This is my favorite body product from Frank Body so far!! I like the smell of the original coffee scrub, and how it exfoliates, but my mom used to complain about the mess it would leave in the shower and on the shower curtains. So when Frank Body released this one, I had to try it. Very impressed! Way less mess, amazing but different scent (more like a coffee cupcake instead of the orange dessert smell of the original), and the creamy formula plus the exfoliation is perfection for ultimate smoothness. I also love ordering it straight from the site because you get free shipping, and Ulta upcharges it. I understand if you absolutely need it that day to justify paying more for it, but otherwise, I think it is better to get it from Frank Body (plus you get Hotel Pink reward points then). I also remember reading some reviews about how it healed some people's skin concerns. Recently, I've had a super dry/chapped ear lobe where it connects to my head, and I've tried a few things (drying with towel on the area immediately after showering, using Aveeno lotion, using 100% marula oil on it, and now this), but I've only used the Frank Body on it once, and it is almost all the way healed up now! Using the aveeno and marula oil and towel would heal it a little, but if something were to scratch or bump into my ear, it would just cut open again and get chapped all over again. That hasn't happened at all after using the Frank Body. Thanks Frank Body Express-O Coffee Scrub

Review for Drunk Elephant nightbright™ - 3 weeks ago

Purchased at: Sephora
I originally bought this just for the glycolic serum, which I loveeee, but I was a bit skeptical/impartial concerning the marula oil at first. The glycolic serum is perfect for gentle resurfacing, and I like using the mini so I get a sensitive skin safe portion size (I know some people are really sensitive to glycolic). It really does make my skin and pores look better! I pair it with my polypeptide cream at night for the perfect combination! As for the marula oil, I didn't begin using it right away, as I already have an oil I use in the daytime and a different one I use at night. But I didn't want it to go to waste and my brow growth serum has recently been drying out my brows, so I had heard of applying oil to them to condition them. I've been applying the marula oil to my brows, and they honestly feel so soft and silky now! Even softer than before using the brow growth serum! And I also got curious and decided to put the oil on a dry patch on my ear lobe that is very chapped and hurts immensely if you accidentally brush against it. Honestly? This oil has helped more than the lotions/creams I've been applying to it! Still waiting for the dryness to go away completely but I've noticed better healing results immediately after using the marula oil on it a few days, so it has to be it! I love this little product so much! Drunk Elephant nightbright™

Review for Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eye Shadow Palette - 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Purchased at: Sephora
Wow, I'm really in love with this palette! Honestly, when it first came out, I looked at it and swatched some of the shades and thought, "they're pretty, but would I actually use them? Would I spend $45 if I'm unsure if I'll like it? I feel like I resonate with some of her other palettes more." Well, to my surprise, it went on a brief sale at Sephora for half the price, and even then, I swatched it one more time, still debating. But I have my public wedding ceremony coming up soon, so I decided this would be a nice palette to consider using. Plus, I have some matte and shimmer nudes, but Anastasia's shades always seem to look slightly dressier than her competition's somehow, so I decided that would set this palette apart from others for wedding makeup, and I bought it. Wowie, I am so glad I did! The colors are so smooth and silky to apply, and yes there is some fallout, but my finished look made up for it! I wish I had gotten some photos of it! I tested it out today just trying a dressier steampunk look, and it was so high end and glam! I got so many compliments! I can't wait to see what my makeup artist does with it for my wedding! Can't wait to play with it again myself leading up to the wedding! $27 well spent!! Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eye Shadow Palette

Review for tarte Tarteist™ Shimmering Lip Paint - 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I got the shade Instafamous, and I love this gloss! I don't normally wear glosses, but I would definitely buy this one again! It is a natural color, and has super tiny shimmers in it to dress up a look or make it more glam and fun! I also love the smell; it smells like dessert! This is such a fun gloss, but I wish the applicator worked better. I feel like I have to tap the gloss color on if I'm wearing it over a lip color so as to not stain the wand or compromise my lip color. I "tap" it on in various spots on my upper and lower lips before I can really spread the gloss out evenly. And lastly, I just really wish the lid was sturdier. Whenever I saw their glosses and lip paints in Sephora with broken lids, I just thought customers were being harsh with the testers. But when I screwed the lid back on using it only my fourth day of owning it, the lid cracked and broke in multiple places, so I can't take this gloss with me anywhere without it leaking now. That really bummed me out. tarte Tarteist™ Shimmering Lip Paint

Review for tarte™ filtered light setting powder - 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Purchased at: Sephora
I really wanted to like this, but it is very hit or miss. I love the smell, and I thought I would love how fine it was. When I first got it, it worked really well with my Becca Skin Love foundation, but that is one of the only foundations I've used it with that it looked harmonious with. I've tried pairing it with Too Faced Born This Way, NARS Radiant Longwear, and NARS Sheer Glow upon numerous others, but it really didn't give off the same result as pairing it with the Skin Love. It started looking a bit orangey with some of them (they had never looked orange on me prior to switching powders), but that's not even the most stressful part. I thought I'd push through the slightly darker tint (I didn't want to waste it) by trying foundations in lighter shades and though the color was better, I noticed with a lot of foundations, the powder made my face look textured, even if I didn't use it all over my face (just blending out contour). I never remembered my face looking that way with Laura Mercier (which I ran out of and didn't want to rebuy until using all of the Tarte powder), even when I used it all over. Today, I met up with my makeup artist for my public wedding ceremony makeup to do a trial run, and she also pointed out that my face looked textured. When she asked me to remove my makeup, she said it had to be that powder because my complexion underneath was smooth and clear without any texture. On top of that, I've had to touch up my makeup way more frequently while wearing this powder. Think of putting flour all over your face, then someone very clearly being able to see the spots you touched on your face. It is almost as if this powder does not blend thoroughly but more so just sits on the surface. You can see every little place you've touched your face throughout the day with this powder, and it is veryyy noticeable. And I've noticed it is hard to use powder blushes and highlighters with this one as well because it has trouble blending. When I put a little highlight on my nose over this powder, it takes all of the powder off my nose and you can see the color difference where there is no powder there suddenly. Really ruins a look when you get to the end of your routine. tarte™ filtered light setting powder

Review for M&Ms® Caramel - 1 month ago
Purchased at: Forever 21
Wow, I really did not see this coming. It's delicious, but it caught me off guard because so often caramel in candy is executed in a liquid/more runny form, but I was pleasantly surprised that this was a slightly harder and chewier form of caramel as a filling for this candy (my dentist will be less than enthused lol, but he'll just have to deal with it). I think I would have liked these in either form, but I'm just so shocked by the direction they went that I can't help but smile at the confusion, haha. I didn't tell my husband what these were or what flavor; I just handed him one and he ate it, then immediately did a double take asking what flavor they were then did a big thumbs up! I don't typically buy candy, but I definitely wouldn't mind choosing these again if I were to buy some candy (though peanut butter M&M's shall always be my favorite). M&Ms® Caramel
Review for Grande Cosmetics HydraPlump Semi-Matte Liquid Lipstick - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
When I first received this in my BoxyCharm, my reaction was mixed: "I already have way too many lip colors, this is just another nude color they put in there so it would look good on anyone who received it, nude lips are trending but what sets this one apart?" When I looked closer at it, the brand name did catch my eye, as well as price. Most liquid lip colors are $18-20, and usually anything higher represents a bougie or really high quality brand or product. I've seen price ranges on lots of Grande's stuff so I was intrigued about the hype and got excited to try one of their products finally. First off, the color is beautiful. I could wear this with sooo many looks. Next, the plumping sensation didn't sting or really tingle all that much, and it felt more like it was gradually plumping throughout the first hour of wear versus immediate plumping and tingling, so that was interesting and great for anyone more sensitive to these sensations who wants plumping properties in a lip product. Lastly, my favorite part was how smooth it looked and felt all day. I wore it for 7 hours, and it still felt creamy/hydrated during the last hour, even when I pressed my lips together. I didn't have to reapply at all, but I kind of wanted to because I love how it felt, haha. I even ate and didn't have to reapply. And overall it is kiss proof if you're giving a light smooch or two. If they had my wedding lip color in this shade, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Though I got mine through BoxyCharm, being able to experience that, I would definitely pay $25 for this product.

Review for Blogilates - 1 month, 1 week ago
My #1 favorite activewear line!! Not only do I love Cassey's videos on YouTube, but her activewear line is the cutest, and super affordable compared to other really popular brands like Lululemon. I promise I'm not biased because I'm a Pop Pilates Instructor lol; I've been buying her activewear and her Pilates Intense Interval Training courses years before I got certified, and I loved her programs so much that becoming a certified Pop instructor just seemed like the right next step for me! For those who haven't tried her activewear, I highly recommend it; if you're still unsure, she has a Sale Section, so you've got nothing to lose! And if you're unsure about one of her PIIT Programs, or you want to start at a more relaxed level, she has tons of free videos on YouTube! The two things I wish she'd add to her activewear collection again are the pilates thongs and something similar to the Peplum Tops from her Bodypop collection! Speaking of, her collections are all inspired by super cute things! Her first was Bodypop, which was all about inspiring people to train hard while looking cute through it all. Day 1? Looking cute. Day 30? Still looking cute (and stronger)! Now she has a Peony themed line, a Mermaid one, a darker floral line called Dark Bloom, and a lighter floral line called Dusty Blossom. I get the most compliments wearing her lines. Andddd she has super stylin' yoga mats for every aesthetic. Make sure you read her size chart article because each line has different sizing, but other than that, you're golden! They're also super fast with shipping and returns! 11/10, will continue to buy for the rest of my life lol. Blogilates

I'm totally in love with this product! I saw a customer in Sephora buying it, and we struck up a conversation concerning the product. She stocked up, and when I smelled the tester, I was determined to buy it when they restocked. The day I went to buy it, I was nervous. I already have tons of lotions at home as well as the ever popular Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. I was having doubts all of a sudden as to whether or not I needed it or if it would be worth it. I decided to proceed and keep the box in case I needed to return it. When I stepped out of the shower and applied it, I knew I had made the right choice. The smell is light and sweet, very natural. I love anything vanilla, and this combination is heavenly. It feels so much silkier than any other body butter I've ever tried (I don't usually go out of my way to buy body butters when lotion exists; it is usually so thick and feels like actual cold and thick butter lol); it's like you can really feel the argan oil in the product through and through. It hydrates deeper than just the surface of the skin. I was absolutely glowing all over without looking too oily. My skin felt so soft! I can't wait to see the results of my skin all over after using this more! I definitely will also be stocking up from now on! Definitely plan to put this on the morning of my public wedding ceremony so I can glow all day! Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Vanilla Apricot
