Review for: Cologne Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume
I usually hate orange scents (and flavors too!), so I actually groaned when I pulled this out, but then I was pleasantly surprised. This clementine scent is super fresh and not sickly sweet, and has a kick of a peppery ending to balance it out. I don’t think I would ever specifically buy this scent, but I’ve been enjoying it on a daily basis the past few weeks. My one complaint, as always, is that the sample size doesn’t have a sprayer – who else HATES putting fragrances on without a sprayer?! IT’S THE LITERAL WORST!
Review for Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - 1 week, 6 days ago
I’m not one to go for a big eyeshadow look, but I do like to play around with shimmery matte shades for a night out. As we all know, shimmery shades come with fallout, and no one wants a glittery under-eye – enter, eyeshadow primer! I’ve been using this Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original for a few years now, and it’s been fine, but I never loved it. I decided to try out the one that came in my box instead of the one I’d had for a few too many years (oops!), and realized that the old formula had gotten past it’s prime, because this new batch was AMAZING! If I ever needed a kick to get rid of old makeup, this was it. I love that this primer turns from a cream into an almost matte powder, and I also learned this time around that letting it dry for 30 seconds is the best way to get the most staying power. 10/10 would recommend for your daily shadow primer, and it’s cheap – $20 for a full-size that lasts forever (but remember, don’t be me – get a new one every few years).

Review for Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm 0.5 oz - 1 week, 6 days ago
Review for: Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm 0.5 oz
It’s not often that I come across products that I have no idea what to do with, but that’s what happened when I tried this Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm in a Josie Maran set I got this winter. This product can be used as a primer or a finisher, but either way it gives off a gorgeous “luminous, ethereal effect.” I wasn’t disappointed to see this balm in this month’s box because my sister has been asking what I’m wearing every time I’ve used this product, so now she can try for herself! I still feel like I haven’t totally mastered the application, since you kind of have to press & pat the balm into your skin, but it’s pretty hard to mess up – especially with the enhancement of argan oil, no matter what you do with this, it’ll be a good thing!

Review for Verb 2-ounce Ghost Oil - 1 week, 6 days ago
Review for: Verb 2-ounce Ghost Oil
I used to be obsessed with using oils in my hair, but for some reason I’ve recently fallen out of love – that’s until this Verb Ghost Oil came into my life. It has a super light texture made of a blend including moringa seed oil, and it adds that perfect subtle shine and moisture that my hair craves on the daily. I will admit that I wish this oil came in a spray bottle, but it looks like the full-size actually does – guess I’ll have to try it! Another bonus is that the Verb line is based in the USA (Austin to be exact)!

Review for: Champagne
I’m all about trying new highlighters lately, and the Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Cream-to Powder Highlighter has not disappointed. I’ve been all about the cream highlighters – something about the formula feels more customizable to me, as I can literally draw it on EXACTLY where I want it, versus using a fluffy brush and getting a powder highlighter all over my face. This formula starts as a cream in a tube, but turns into a light powdery formula as it dries which makes it super easy to blend with fingers or a makeup sponge. The color is perfect on any skin tone, and I can tell you right now that this is going to be my spring-to-summer go-to daily highlighter. Also, something about the chrome packaging totally has me hooked!

Review for: GLAMGLOW GLOWSTARTER™ Mega Illuminating Moisturizer 1.7 oz
I’ve tried a few masks from GLAMGLOW (and of course loved them!), but I’ve never tried any other products from the brand.  I received a GLAMGLOW GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in the color Nude Glow in my March Sephora Play! Box. Even though this product is called a “moisturizer,” I never used it on it’s own, but mixed it with other basic daytime moisturizers. I love the overall dewy look it gives, and it smells like an orange creamsicle! If I were to buy this product, I think I would go for the shade Sun Glow instead of Nude Glow, because I obviously love a little tan with my glow!
Review for: Beauty Firming
I am all about serums, but most of the impressive ones seem to be hundreds of dollars. This REN product gave me similar results to the holy grail  Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment  but at a mere fraction of the cost. This serum’s claim to fame is “an amped version of hyaluronic acid,” so you come out with extremely hydrated skin that looks super plump and youthful. I would say that I’m seriously considering adding this product into my daily routine, as I get up the nerve to actually purchase a more expensive serum.

Review for Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate - 1 week, 6 days ago
I’ve always felt kind of meh about concentrates, or products that claim to make other products work harder. They usually seem like a gimmick, and I can never tell if my skin feels and looks better because of this extra product, or because using this extra product means I actually carried out my skincare routine, and that’s what really made a difference. Anyway, I decided to test the system, so I did my whole routine, and I tried it a few times with the concentrate, and a few times without. I can honestly say I saw a difference! There wasn’t enough of a difference to necessarily spend $67 on a full-size, but the formula was luxurious and my skin was significantly softer when I added this product to my regimen. Hopefully this sample size will last a few weeks and I can decide if a full-size purchase is worth it!

When I read the description for this mask – “mimicking the effect of a derm visit, this mask uses patented SilicaLift technology that smooths skin and pulls it taut” – I was expecting big results. What I ended up getting what the opposite – my skin didn’t feel any different! I love when masks instantly make you look dewy, plump and moisturized, and this one didn’t deliver in any of those areas. For almost $10 per mask, I would highly recommend that you never try it – it’s not even close to worth it!

Review for: The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Cream, 50 ml
To start, the packaging isn’t exciting and I’ve never been the biggest fan of rose scents. But WOW – was I impressed after just one use. This cream is ultra-moisturizing but sinks is super fast, and leaves you with a dewy, glowy look that doesn’t feel sticky or tacky. The rose scent is actually very appealing (is rose growing on me?!), and smells more fresh than floral. The price tag is a bit off the wall, but a little does go a long way. I also love that it’s formulated to “help reduce broken capillaries” – under my nose is filled with these little red lines, and although I don’t think I was able to use this product long enough to notice a difference, I would be really interested to see what long-term use would do.
