Hi all! My name is Kaitlin and I live in Northeast Indiana. I absolutely love makeup and skincare products and making myself feel BEAUTIFUL inside and out. I work at a not-for-profit fitness facility and I enjoy exercise and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. However, I do enjoy the occasional glass of wine to help relax ;) I also am crazy about good television shows...Netflix binge-watching is definitely an area of expertise for me!
I got this brush in an Ipsy bag. It is great for blending and using in the crease. It is very fluffy and easy to use. I don’t really have any problems with this brush! I’m glad Ipsy sent it to me :) !!
I’ve been really enjoying wearing lipsense lately. It is color that really lasts all day and doesn’t budge...it does look better with the gloss and I don’t really have the time to apply it multiple times a day. My picture is one layer of plum pretty and one layer of apple cider. I am someone who loves nude lipsticks so I thought this was wayyy too dark, but it’s probably just because I’m not used to seeing myself in that color.
I am in LOVE with this color. It is a nice light pinky nude. It has a slight glimmer and shine to it but nothing that is too extreme. This is an extremely wearable color on an everyday basis. I am not going to review the formula of this because I will do that for the Lipsense product specifically.
I received this as a sample from PINCHme. It works really well, smells great, and leaves my hair feeling smooth and soft. I used it in the shower as a conditioner and then washed it out. It smells so good! I may purchase
This scar gel is super soothing. It smells great and feels great on the skin. I have been using it on the acne scars on my face. Unfortunately haven’t seen much of a difference but I probably haven’t been using it as consistently as I should be so I don’t want to fully say it’s a dud.
I got this at Ulta during their beauty sale for 50% off. I have hormonal cystic acne that is very bad on my cheeks. The first few days I used these products, I thought I was seeing progress. Then my cheeks started flaring up worse than before. The products also make the face uncomfortably dry (which i expected to an extent). I was using it twice a day, but now I am going back to my old skincare routine for the morning and these proactiv products at night. I am hoping this will help, but as of right now, I can’t wait til these products empty!
I like these hydrating booster drops! I’ve been mixing a few drops into some matte foundations and it really makes the foundation a lot more hydrating. I am excited to try it mixed in to some of my moisturizers!
I’m really liking this foundation. When I first used it, I found it to be slightly dry but it did give me a nice matte non-cakey finish. My skin is a bit on the drier side right now, so the second time I mixed it with e.l.f. Hydrating Booster Drops and I loved it! My favorite thing about this foundation is that it really does last for a super long time. I worked 8 hours and worked out and sweat on a treadmill for 40 minutes and was impressed with how well this foundation held up. So my word of advice is to be careful if you use this foundation and have dry skin...try to add something hydrating to it! It’s a great long lasting foundation!
I got these for free in a PINCHme box. When you bite into them, you get this pleasant sweet fruity taste and then BAM! They turn spicy. I am sensitive to spicy foods and think literally everything is spicy so maybe that’s why, but they were absolutely way too hot for me. Glad I got them as a free sample because I was kind of curious and excited to try them but would definitely not purchase with my money...I will stick to the sweet Skittles instead!
