🌱I was pretty excited when @influenster
teamed up with @honest_beauty
and sent me several complimentary products to review. I received the matte primer, duo mascara, and lip crayon.
🌱The everything matte primer is super creamy and soft. I use primers only in my t-zone and this held my makeup in place. I did not get much oil coming thru throughout the day. However, I did notice some pilling on areas where I used more moisturizer. Just be sure you are not applying too much moisturizer or let your moisturizer completely absorb into skin before applying primer.
🌱The extreme length mascara + lash primer is quite nice. The primer helps thicken up my lashes so the mascara has something to grab on to. The slim mascara wand helped elongate my lashes without having spidery lashes. It is great at lengthening but didn't give me the volume I wanted.
🌱The lip crayon is very easy to apply and hydrating on the lips. Reminds me of the Clinique chubby sticks. A nice peachy nude color in the shade Blossom. Goes on with a bit of shine at first but then turns into a demi-matte finish. It does not last long and reapplying makes my lips patchy looking unless I wipe everything off.
🌱Thank you @honest_beauty
for sending this to me complimentary for testing and review! All opinions are my own.
🌱Have a beautiful day Lovelys!

Perfect for all skin types, rose has been used for centuries for its beautifying properties. A staple in Cleopatra’s beauty regimen, she regularly bathed her skin in water and oils made from the petals. It has many benefits including its anti-inflammatory properties which aid in reducing acne and calming irritated skin. It is said that Aphrodite named this flower after her son Eros, the god of love.

V v excited to try this cleansing sticks - brb going to wash my face rn. Thank you @blissworld
For sending these my way! Have you tried these?
First time ever trying out @glossier
products . . . will they live up to the hype? I ordered Boy Brow of course, but curious if I’m a candidate as I have wiry long eyebrows. I definitely do more trimming than plucking. Generation G lipstick in Crush and Cloud Paint in the new color Storm. Will get back with reviews of all . . .

Are you thinking of shopping the @sephora
sale? What’s your number one pick? I’m currently in the endless cycle of adding/removing things from my cart so y’know, making no progress at all 💁🏻♀️.
ok, last one. 🙈 Also just a reminder I’ll be announcing my giveaway winner today at 8:00pm EST ✨
The Pearl by @tatcha
is described as, “a tinted treatment that awakens eyes with a pearl-like luster, hydrates and reduces the look of dark circles and wrinkles — instantly and over time.” It features “Uji Green Tea to detoxify and prevent signs of premature aging,” Okinawa Mozuku Algae for water retention, and Akita Rice, “rich in essential proteins,” to moisturize.
Now, obviously... HELLO beautiful packaging. 🙋🏽♀️ Tatcha does packaging well, but they really outdid themselves with the Pearl. My kids call this one Pokémon, which cracks me up, but they’re not totally wrong about the resemblance. It’s such a gorgeous little metallic purple ball that seals tight— perfect for your vanity and your weekend bag.
Now, I do have to say that as a product that features silicone high on the list... it doesn’t play well on my DE Umbra Tinte days. And I wear Umbra Tinte most days. That’s just the nature of most water based products and silicone. On the days that I wear one of my silicone-based chemical sunscreens, this does look nice under the eye. It’s perfect for “no-makeup” makeup days where you’re going for mascara, brow gel, highlighter, lip balm, and a cream blush.
This is a beautiful product with lovely ingredients and a great concept. It’s always sold out at my local Sephora, and I think it would make a phenomenal everyday staple for those who frequently wear silicone-based products. 💜
✨First Impressions of @koraorganics
Rose Quartz Luminizer✨
1. It’s definitely very close to the tone of actual Rose Quartz, which makes sense since it contains actual Rose Quartz
2. The jar is glass (I’m not a fan of plastic) and about the circumference of a toonie.
3. It spreads very easily and it gives a nice dewy look without a bunch of sparkle. So far, I’m a fan 🌸
The wildflowers are in full bloom here so I picked a few for my vanity, then reorganized the entire counter because apparently that’s what turns me on 😬. Also this candle from @ellisbrooklyn
is *the* best thing I have ever smelled, hands down.
SCENT DIARY: Quando comprate un prodotto di bellezza vi fate influenzare anche dal packaging? Io negli ultimi mesi lo guardo sempre di più, naturalmente la qualità è imprescindibile. I prodotti testati sono tutti ottimi e belli da vedere. Due maschere in tessuto: una per il viso di @drjart
e una per le mani di @magicstripes_italy_
. Poi una maschera in crema di per pelli sensibili di @renskincare
e una detox che é anche uno struccante di @lixirskin
Per stuccare il viso ho usato Hylamide, di questo non ho amato l'odore però. Per la pelle del viso, la mia é secca e matura, un olio di argan organico di Olis of Heaven e la crema super nutriente, Ceramid, di Dr. Jart, brand cult coreano, come 24/7 un duo composto da un conditioning mist, spray ultraidratante per il viso con SPF 50 . Mai senza il mio @foreo_italy
ormai non riesco più a farne a meno. Il profumo é quello al fico di Molinard 🇺🇲 When you buy a beauty product, do you also influence the packaging? In the last few months I have been looking at him more and more, of course quality is essential. The tested products are all excellent and beautiful to look at. Two sheet mask: one fore the face by Dr. Jart and one for the hands by Magicstripes. Then a cream mask by for sensitive skin by REN and a detox mask which is also a make-up remover by Lixir. I used Hylamide to clean the makeup, but I did not like the smell of the product. I nourished the skin of my face, mine is dry with an organic argan oil by Olis of Heaven and the super-nourishing cream, Ceramid, by Dr. Jart. Then a Korean product of 24/7 a duo consisting of a conditioning mist, ultra-moisturizing face spray with SPF 50 and a treatment for lips. Never without my Foreo. In these last days I want fresh perfumes like this on Molinard's fig

- I LOVE COSRX, so when I saw this on Octoly I nearly flipped. Their chemical exfoliants are so good that I find myself using them almost daily, AND they’re sooo affordable! I’ve yet to try something from cosrx that I dislike. 5/5
Have any of you tried cosrx? What are some of your favs from the brand, or things you’d like to try and/or see me review?

Nothing like a little animal print to cheer up a Thursday .... am I right? Putting a little spring in my step with these beauties today. The fabulous @doesmybumlook40
reminded me of my love of all things leopard print in her recent blog.... just didn’t want these guys to feel left out. Recycled from last season daarrlling 🤣. Officially the world needs more animal print 👍

this gorgeous Fleur d’ Oranger room spray. I’m already such a big fan of the other scents in this line, I was stocked to add it to my collection.
It’s vibrant and effervescent orange blossom with a bit of a bitter vibe, which I love. It also has a slight floral sweetness to balance the bitterness from the citrus, which makes it perfect for the summer time! 🍊
I love spraying this on textiles especially, as they truly absorb the scent and last much longer.
Have you guys tried the room spray line from @diptyque
? Which is your favorite?
I remember seeing they would be adding more scents to this range, such as their cult favorite Feu de Bois, which I would buy in a heart beat!

✨One of my fave eye creams (but not a cream) is this one from @clarinsuk.
The metal applicators is so refreshing, it's exactly what tired computer-strained eyes need. ✨The holy grail of face masks is undoubtedly @sisleyparisuk.
So holy that I feel bad using them unless there's truly a special occasion—which isn't often. Starting to worry they'll expire so cracking this out on a Thursday bc yolo. ✨ @glossier
Solution needs no introduction but it’s new to my stash and I’m so impressed. After years of use my skin is pretty much resistant to acids (Pixi Glow & Alpha-H Liquid Gold do nothing for me) but this is STRONG. Zingy but wakes up my skin and works.
✨ I’m trying to get into the habit of wearing lip balm before bed and this @bybibeauty
one is more of a treatment so I really love it. Like a luxe eye cream for your mouth, bc you’re worth it. ✨ Just finished this bottle of @codageparis_uk
’s blemish/pigmentation serum. This brand was one of the first to latch onto the ‘tailor made skincare’ trend and it IS good, but NIOD Re:Pigment is better IMO. •

I’m loving the new @louisvuitton
miniature set of men’s cologne. It’s no secret I love perfume and fragrances in general, so I was excited to try out the men’s colognes. I personally think fragrances are unisex and are a personal choice. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this set but I think I might actually have more favourites in this collection than the women’s collection 🤷🏻♀️ it’s a tough call.
L’Immensité - I would say this one is the lightest scent from this collection - grassy and fresh
Nouveau Monde - smoky, fresh and crisp
Orage - citrus, leafy and fresh
Sur La Route - floral and musky, this one may be my favourite - I really do love them all.
Au Hasard - smoky and musky but light
These are just my opinions, everyone smells scents differently as well as they smell different on everyone. #LouisVuitton #LVparfumes #LVcologne #LVpartner
Nothing will ever replace this scent for me 🌻
Base: jasmine, honeysuckle.
Double up the weekend is almost here. We love relieving facial tension and detoxing from the elements with our #kbeauty #kombucha #facemasks
Happy Thursday, loves! I thought I’d share a golden shelfie today. ✨💛 Some newer additions to my gold product collection? @pinrosescents
gilded fox (swooning like mad over this) & @farmacybeauty
’s honeymoon glow. I did a mini review of the honeymoon in my stories a few days back, but I still haven’t tried their iconic honey potion or honey drop so I don’t feel like a proper skincare blogger yet. Is there some kind of law about this? 😂
. This pic also features some old favs from @soldejaneiro
’s bum bum cream to @rawspiritfragrances
’ desert blush to @fur_you
’s signature oil. The bum bum cream & fur oil are both long gone... I used them up last month. But I can’t bear to get rid of the fur oil bottle or the bum bum jar for some reason. In fact, I refilled the fur oil bottle with pure jojoba and have been using it as a facial oil dispenser. Did we already cover my hoarder tendencies in Monday’s candle post? Whoops! 😂
. I’ve been really into color coordinated photos lately, especially as a way to break up my long review posts. I hope you guys don’t mind. What are you up to today? Do you have any weekend plans? ✨💕
Whooos ready to see my latest haul? Video will be up on my channel tonight boo thangss 😁
A color-coordinated shelfie in collaboration with my shelfie twin & favorite @beawuty
I’ve been using this @youthtothepeople
cleanser and moisturizer duo recently and I’ve been enjoying both of them! You know my feelings about the cleanser, it’s really lovely. I started using the moisturizer a few days ago. It has a creamy gel texture, is a beautiful seafoam color, and smells nice and fresh like the cleanser. It feels very light on my skin, a little more substantial in texture than the Huxley I just finished, and to be honest a bit less moisturizing. I think at night when using I’ll want to add some oil in or do a layer of a sleeping mask after applying this, it could maybe use a little extra at night especially for dry-skinned babes. But I do enjoy both of these products and am excited to explore more of Youth to the People’s range! I’m underwhelmed by some of the most hyped skincare lines, but this one seems like it’s an exception to the overhype.
I love sunscreen. chemical sunscreen? physical sunscreen? high-end? drugstore? korean? zinc oxide-based? I don't discriminate. I love all*. to save time in the mornings and minimize the amount of layering I need to do pre-makeup (more layers = more texture for me), I've been transitioning to using sunscreens that can double as moisturizers while also serving as my makeup base. here's my current rotation, all SPF 50 & all working great for me ☀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
aloe soothing sun cream
hydro boost water gel lotion sunscreen (this is heavily fragranced, but can't lie, I love the gel consistency)
perfect UV protection essence
UV aqua rich watery essence ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*but I do NOT love sunscreens containing oxybenzone or octinoxate, which are more common in US-manufactured sunscreens and contribute to coral reef bleaching
lately I've been on a hunt for a moisturizer, one that meets all my requirements, I'm tough when it comes to this and luckily I found @biossance
a very lightweight gel moisturizer that hydrates the skin, helps with redness and leaves skin hydrated yet not oily or greasy, i'm a fan. Perfect for people with oily skin or dry skin in the summer. #obsessed
While vacation is always amazing, sometimes you miss bits of home like your own bed, your cat & of course, your #shelf
Beauty blogging 101: if all else fails, repost a shelfie.
I'm having one of those creative blocks at the moment so I haven't been in the mood to shoot much. All my recent photos have been looking very similar to each other and it's driving me a little bit nuts 🙃 And the lack of sun certainly doesn't help. Okay, now I'm done complaining! I think I'm going to shop for some magazines + a new prop or two this afternoon to motivate myself. What do you do when you're lacking inspiration?
About a month ago, I was lucky enough to have been one of those that were given by @skincorrectph
their newest products— the Acne Clarifying Facial Wash & Acne Clarifying Facial Solution.
〽️ Ingredients: The notables in the list are azelaic glycine, salicylic, mandelic, & lactic acids & chamomile extracts. It’s also sulfate & alcohol free.
〽️ Claims: Create a skin barrier to prevent breakouts (facial wash) & hydrate the skin (toner). They also recommend this for those with oily & acne prone skin (all my acne-prone lovies raise your hands)
🍯 It was serendipitous when I received the product because stubborn pimples emerged on my lower right cheek. I immediately used both the toner & facial wash that night. The morning after, the pimples kind of dried up.
🍯 The facial wash was so gentle, more gentle than that of Cetaphil for me. The same goes for the toner. Skin Correct is known for having gentle products & now I can attest to that.
🍯 I used both products for a week straight, incorporating them in my PM routine because I wanted to get rid of my pimples. Yes it did help erase them but I think using them every day for a week was a bad idea. Although it is gentle on the face, the acids in the product might have overworked on my face because the corner of my nose got kind of inflamed.
🍯 Now I use it thrice a week. I like using this as my last skin.
🍯 It doesn’t necessarily prevent me from having pimples but I notice it helps dry them out.
🍯 It’s fragrance-free but the toner has a bleach-like smell which I’m so put off with because I really can’t stand the smell of bleach huhu I hope they’ll try to eliminate this next time 😭
🍯 Overall, I still like this product cause I can see it doing its work on my acne. I’m not sure though how much this retails for because it’s not listed in Beautymnl.
** Products were sent for free but thoughts and reviews are all mine

My favorite nude, long wear, lip liner would have to be Huda Beauty’s lip liner in Bombshell.
It’s a creamy/ buttery formula that glides effortlessly onto the lips/skin and doesn’t budge throughout the day.
You can also build the color up, the more coats you apply the stronger the color becomes.
It’s only flaw is that you don’t really get an abundance of product in a single tube.
Loving this post from @breannapw.
