An affordable palette with lots of bright, fun shades. I was a huge MLP fan growing up so of course I had to have this when it came out. All the shadows are well pigmented and apply easily. I love that there is both sparkly and matte shadows in the palette. Colourpop always has some of the best formulas at majorly good prices. My favorite shades are Snuzzle and Blossom. This is another great palette option from them.
The first few weeks of using this product, I was in love. But like many relationships, I soon found faults. Initially, I didn't mind the fact that I got a little bit sweaty each day because I knew that was what I was getting in to and I didn't smell. I also didn't mind the rough texture of the deodorant its self. But I made a mistake and now I am paying for it. The label says "Do not apply to freshly shaven areas." and it's 100% true. My armpits did not react right away but once they did, it was HORRIBLE. My armpits have several swollen puss-filled bumps and my lymph nodes have swollen up in response. DO NOT SHAVE RIGHT BEFORE USE. I might wait for this rash to clear and try this deodorant again but I will make sure I do not shave right before applying. So if you don't mind a little sweat, a bit of a rough application, and shaving your armpits at night, this could be a good natural choice for you. Unfortunately for me, it didn't work out but that's kind of my fault.
I was pleased to see an organic tampon option at a fair price without having to subscribe to a monthly delivery service but unfortunately these did not meet my expectations. First off, the wrapper is SO LOUD. I feel like I’m announcing to everyone in my general vicinity that I’m menstruating whenever I get one out to use. Not only that, but they have the tendency to leak on heavier days. And the applicator is a little difficult to use, as I always end up pulling it completely apart and then not really being able to tell if it’s fully in place. While the price is right, I will have to find a different option for me.
I love how glittery this liquid eye shadow is! I’m a glitter fiend and I know that one of the downsides of glitter makeup is that it gets every where. But this stuff stays pretty well and doesn’t flake off my lids. It is a beautiful color and the glitter is fine (Small) and applies evenly. I think the only drawback is the price honestly.
This stuff is amazing! I didn’t really feel the need to use eye creams until the last few years and this particular cream made me realize how much better my eyes and face look when I do. I love the smell, texture, and coverage of this. It really does brighten up my eye area and it really can be used as an eye makeup primer. It’s a bit on the pricey side for me but it is definitely worth it.
I couldn’t resist the new “Paint It Black” collection and since “Night & Slay” was sold out, I opted for “Ash & Burn”. I was a bit disappointed that it was a bit of a matte finish but it’s still very pretty. The glitter is golden and spreads evenly on my nails. I didn’t use a top coat the first time but I will in the future because it’s prone to chipping without. I am going to try and find a few of the other colors in this collection because they all look gorgeous!
This is a unique and fun face mask that gives you good results in not too long of a time period. I love the tingling sensation and that it only takes a minute to use. Plus the purple color makes it easy to see if you got proper coverage. Plus it washes off easily and leaves my pores and face looking fantastic. Did I say how easy it is to use? Because it really is! Only one minute to better looking skin.
I got this as part of a VoxBox campaign and man is it amazing. My skin look glowing and gorgeous. I was surprised at how little product I need to use each time but also very pleased since this would normally be a big beauty splurge for me. The product smells wonderful and it hydrated so well. It’s texture is just perfect and it never leaves my skin feeling greasy - it’s like magic. I am definitely going to buy this product in the future and it actually gets me excited to try other Elemis products in the future.
Chipotle revolutionized quick serve and forever changed the landscape of affordable, quick eating. I have an appreciation for how high quality their food is while remaining relatively affordable. I like how they use local produce and more natural meat options. And I love the variety their simple menu really does offer. I always get through even the longest lines quickly and I also find online ordering to be a lifesaver for our office. Really, this is one of my go-to options for a solo or an office lunch and I absolutely never tire of their food.
