Long time lover of the Balm cosmetics, so purchasing this palette was a no brainer.
9 incredibly formulated shadows, 2 blushes, 1 bronzer, 1 highlight, & 2 lip colors. Lip colors can be used as cheek stains. Very versatile. You can put together a glam look or a low key natural face with the same palette. Highly pigmented shadows have no fallout, long wearing, and aren't chalky at all. Perfect for travel & for under $40 you can't go wrong!
This lactic acid is a nice switch up from other brands that tend to have a really funky smell. This is a fresh citrusy scent. Can be used morning & night to help uneven texture, age spots, & fine lines. I love how this made my skin appear brighter & more refreshed but the sample size I received from January's Birchbox was pretty small & the price tag on Sunday Riley's Good Genes is $105 for the smallest bottle. I'll be honest, I'm conflicted. This COULD be worth the money but the sample size just don't convince me. The struggle is real.
JS delivers again! I have Skin Frost in Ice Cold and So Fvcking Gold. These are the most amazing highlights! Add a little to your cheekbone below your eye for instant glam. Coverage is buildable so you can achieve a day look or a dramatic effect. Super pigmented colors with tremendous stay power. The palette is far bigger than you would think so you get lots of product. The way the light catches these frosty highlights is beautiful.
This was my first time using a micellar water & I'm pleasantly surprised. You can use this as a (mild) makeup remover, toner, & a moisturizer all at the same time. (There's a whole science behind this type of product. If you haven't researched, you should. Very interesting information.) Anyway, it left my skin feeling silly smooth without breaking out my acne-prone skin. If you have dry skin, you'll love this. Don't count on it as your go to eye makeup remover though. The formula is too gentle for the tough jobs but your skin will thank you for using this.
Huge fan of ROC products & this is a staple for me. I use it morning and night. It makes my skin soft, smooth, & noticeably brighter. Bonus points for it's SPF 30 factor. Lightweight, quickly absorbs, & never greasy. Great for even the most problematic skin. (Dry, oily, acne prone.) Highly recommend especially for aging prevention. You can buy it in most drugstores, Walmart, & Amazon. Reasonably priced.
My go to spot for all things cosmetics. I regularly shop at Sephora. (Mostly online.) they have amazing customer service & I love the 3 free samples you get to choose per order. I'll forever be a Sephora fan!
I got this in my ipsy box this month & was really excited because I adore tarte products. I'm always leary of face oils, for obvious reasons. But I've been using this before bed for almost a week now and so far, no breakouts. It applies with a dropper, which I really like. You just need 2/3 drops. It absorbs immediately and leaves my face really soft. After researching it, I've also used it on my cuticles & to tame frizzy hair. I love a product with multiple uses! I'm still on the fence about purchasing though because I don't love it. Could use some help in the scent depo as it's kind of blah.
Found this little gem in my Ipsy this month & I'm in love with this matte liquid lip! It's very reminiscent of theBalm's Meet Matte Hughes liquid lip. (But cheaper!) Love the application wand, no transfer, & longevity. Dries without being sticky. Pin Up is a deep berry mauve. So flattering. I'm anxious to try other colors. So worth purchasing!
When my son started school, I started buying Germ-X. We keep it in all our bathrooms, kitchen, car, his backpack, & my bag. A simple way to stay germ free especially when you aren't able to wash your hands. My house is never without it.
