This is, by far, my all-time favorite lipstick formulation. The pigmentation is surprising, and although it is a crayon, I find it very easy to apply. It applies so smoothly and is long-lasting. The packaging is also absolutely beautiful and looks so luxe. It does transfer onto my coffee cup, but it still looks great after I have my morning brew. I just touch-up throughout the day as needed. I love that it has a natural herbal scent that's not at all overpowering. I typically shop drugstore, so I do find this a little pricey ($24), but I will have to buy this again once it runs out.
I received a sample size of this leave-in conditioner through a beauty box, and I honestly wasn't expecting to like it because my hair doesn't agree with many products. I have very thick, wavy, DRY hair, and it usually takes a strong oil to make it behave. I sprayed this onto towel-dried hair, and it kept my locks from tangling all day. I really enjoyed using it, but I don't think I'd be willing to pay for a full-sized bottle. The sample size didn't last me long because I have a lot of hair, and it look a few sprays to cover all my strands.
One of my favorite dishes when I was a meat-eater was chorizo con huevo, and I was pretty bummed that I wouldn't be able to have it again when I became vegetarian...until I discovered the miracle that is soyrizo! This stuff is the best. It's spicy and flavorful, just like the real stuff. It's delicious, and it works with my diet, so I'm a happy girl whenever I get a craving and can make myself a nice burrito.
If you're looking for an affordable brush cleanser that works, you have to pick this up. It does such a great job at cleaning all the product off of brushes, and it doesn't leave a residue on them once they're dried. I've used other products that need a lot of elbow grease to get makeup off my tools, but this one cleans them right the first time with just a small amount of cleanser. I love that it's made by a brand that doesn't test on animals and is environmentally conscious. The one thing that I wish they would improve on is the smell. I'm very sensitive to scents, and this one smells like soap. It's not a strong smell, but it does leave a hint of its scent on the brushes once they've dried. It's definitely not enough to get me to stop using the product, though. I can definitely see myself purchasing this over and over again.
I purchased this spray some time ago because it was recommended so much by beauty gurus, but it honestly hasn't wowed me. It does definitely feel refreshing to apply, but I find that it does not moisturize my dry skin nearly enough. I'm extremely sensitive to scents, and I'm happy to say that this spray is only lightly scented, and it smells fresh. I really appreciate that it doesn't smell like chemicals because I really hate those types of products. It's readily available in stores, and it's decently priced, so I can definitely say that if you're curious, you should try it and see if you like it.

This brush set was one of the best purchases I've made on the BH Cosmetics website. The set itself is very affordable, and the website often has promotions and sales. These brushes are sturdy, soft, and they come with a canvas carrying case. They apply product well, and I've never had issues with them shedding or falling apart. The best part is that this set is made with bamboo handles, so the brushes are much more environmentally conscious than typical plastic brushes. I would highly recommend this brush set to anyone and everyone, especially considering how affordable they are.
It took me years to finally try a foundation brush because I was so convinced that it would leave streaks on my face when applying makeup- but I was so wrong. I personally think this brush does a much better job than a sponge does at applying foundation. I honestly feels like it helps the coverage of whatever foundation you're using so that it covers imperfections more evenly. It also uses much less product because there isn't much space between the hairs for it to get caught. Because of this, though, the one complaint that I do have is that it is a complete pain to clean this brush thoroughly. The hairs are so tightly and densely packed that it's difficult to get all of the product out properly. It took me about fifteen minutes of scrubbing and rinsing with brush cleanser to finally get all of the foundation out of the hairs, and it took another couple days for it to fully dry. For $8.99, I would say that its worth trying out if you're looking to try a brush for foundation application.
I love this little brush! It applies and blends pigments very well. I loved it so much that I bought another two of the same brush so that I can switch between between different colors without having to wash them right away (when I'm feeling really lazy). I can see why this line of brushes is compared to some popular high-end brushes, and they're only 99c! I'm sure the more expensive brands have a higher quality, but for the price, I would definitely say this brush is a good buy.
This book is very difficult to read at times because her experience is so heartbreaking, but it is such a good read. The entire book is written from Susanna's point of view, and she writes details of the event so vividly. I greatly appreciate that she added the scientific evidence of what is happening in her body. It helps explain and correlates to her exterior behavior throughout her ordeal. Overall, I greatly recommend reading this book if you are curious about psychology and medical mysteries.
