I recently (within the past year) joined the bandwagon of other beauty junkies who discovered the genius of K-beauty and the products they have introduced to the Western world. Soko Glam is a wonderful curator of all things Korean beauty! I've enjoyed having access to the newest beauty and skin care releases in a much shorter time than when I ordered from Korean merchants and had to wait for my shipments to pass through the time consuming process of customs before reaching me.
I love this caddy! I purchased 6 this past Christmas as gifts for myself & my girlfriends/co-workers. The caddy is terrific for organizing your beauty area, bathroom counters etc...but it also has a handle that allows you to conveniently grab & carry your products where you need to be. The inside has pockets wide enough to accommodate hair dryer handles, flat irons, curling irons and their cords neatly. And the outer pockets are great for bottles of heat protectant, shampoo, combs and brushes of all sizes. This caddy is durable and well made.
I shared & enjoyed this sampler kit with my daughter. It allowed us both to try several high end products without the high end financial commitment. The size of some of the items were disappointingly small, like the Tata Harper mask and Lancer method polish product. Even for the bundle price, some products were the same size as Sephora deluxe samples, IMO were overpriced. Despite the small size, through multiple uses, I was able to determine which products I wanted to purchase in full size, like the Tata Harper mask & Drunk Elephant vitamin C product. My daughter purchased the Jurlique rosewater mist in the full size.
I have used this banana powder for about 5-6 years. It is extremely, finely milled and sets foundation, concealer and contour beautifully. You get a lot of product for the purchase price, which is much cheaper than less superior products. I did hold back 1 star because of the packaging. It allows for a bit of a mess each time you open the top and try to de-pot some of the powder.
My husband and I stayed at the Gaylord National Harbor resort, outside the nation's capital, Washington, DC back in December. It's a beautiful property that sits on the banks of the Potomac River. The hotel was exquisitely decorated for the holidays with several "theme" Christmas trees, lights and wreaths throughout the interior of the resort as well as outdoors. There was plenty of professional and courteous staff to handle any requests or issues we had as guests. The resort has many wonderful amenities including several restaurants and bars, a full service spa, live music performances throughout the hotel, a laser light show in the atrium every evening to name a few. And of course, the location of the hotel ensures that guests are only a 15 minute drive to many of the most iconic monuments in the United States, such as the National Monument, Jefferson & Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol and the White House.
What's not to love about this airline? They surpass their industry competitors with their free 2 checked bags and 2 carry-on bags (or 1 bag and a purse) perk. Add to that, really friendly employees, everyone from ground crew, cabin/flight crew to their uber patient and professional counter crews inside airports...they are my first choice. Wherever I have to go, if Southwest flies there, I'm a Southwest passenger!
I LOVE THIS CONCEALER!! When this product first hit the market it was all Influencers, beauty gurus and YouTubers talked about. When I bought & tried this concealer, I knew the hype was well deserved. It has the best doe foot applicator of any product I've ever used. It is pigmented, smooth in its application and a little goes a long way, even for the darkest under eye situation. I rarely set my under eye with powder while, using Shape Tape, but there is no dreaded creasing when I don't. There are several shades to match all skin tones and the amount of product you get for the price is AWESOME....great job Tarte!
I know that this face primer has a pretty loyal following, and rightly so. It is very mattifying, and creates a smooth base. However, it's been my experience that this product does not get along with my foundation and/or BB cream. When I apply these products on top of it, it detaches from my skin and rolls up into little balls.
This soft sided bag is one in a trio. The bag is listed here as a perfume bag, however, I use it as a makeup bag in my purse. It has a heavy duty zipper and 2 fabric handles attached to each end. The black fabric can be spot cleaned when necessary. My only complaint is none of my face brushes fit into the bag. The handles were all too long. The bag is fairly deep though and does hold a lot of items.
As an elementary school teacher, I strive to find clothes that are classic, professional and comfortably low maintenance. I am able to find all of these requirements on the racks of J. Crew. The design of clothes and shoes they carry are a successful blending of modern and timeless. I have blazers and shoes I've had and worn for years. And they've withstood the test of time in both, style and quality.
