Estēe Lauder

IMG_7104

There are a few key products by Estēe Lauder that I always use and wanted to share with you!

Softening Lotion – I use it after I wash my face and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed!

Perfectly Clean Foam Cleanser – I leave it on for 3 minutes while I shower and helps to keep my skin clear.

Double Wear Light Foundation – I love this foundation because it’s lightweight, always looks natural and stays on all day! (I use Intensity 4.0)

Brush-On Glow Highlighter – To hide dark circles and brighten up your eyes! (I use 5/6 N Deep Neutral)

Automatic Brow Pencil Duo – This eyebrow filler allows you to easily trace your brow and fill it in. (I use 07-soft blonde)

These Estēe Lauder products are just a few of my favorites. My skin is normally very dry, so beauty products that hydrate my skin, but don’t leave it looking cake-y is very important to me. Luckily, the products above do just that.

KYLIE LIP KIT

The day has finally arrived.

DSC_0260-001.JPG

First, I went onto snap chat and Kylie posted that 46K active users were on her Kylie Cosmetics site, so i went into a panic. The first two times her lip kits were available I completely missed it and I was not going to let that happen again! Koko K was my first choice and that was sold out (I plan on ordering it whenever it becomes available again) and 22 was my second choice. I added 22 to my cart and typed in my credit card number as quickly as possible!!! Order confirmed. Order shipped. Happy human.

Positive Note: The kit comes with a matching lip pencil and matte lip gloss. I applied the lip pencil, then the lip gloss and let it set for a few minutes. The matte finish is amazing. For $29 I was SO impressed.

Side Note: I applied it at 7pm on friday night. I told myself I would get out of bed before i fell asleep to wipe it off and of course, I never did. I woke up in the morning and it was still  on perfectly. (And it wasn’t on my pillows!!) Long lasting is an understatement.

Negative Note: It smells like vanilla. It looks so good that I can overlook the sweet smell.

Another Side Note: It comes off easily with a make up wipe or remover.

If you are contemplating ordering one, I totally recommend it! I will post about Koko K when I get my hands on it! Xx

GLOSSIER.

A friend recommended Glossier because she loved a few of their products, so i decided to see for myself. I ordered their generation g matte lipstick (color: jam), boy brow (color: blonde) and milky jelly cleanser. All of them exceeded my expectations! Yes, i am in love.

The generation g matte lipstick has the finish like a stain, but can be applied like a balm. I ordered the color Jam and it’s definitely something I can throw in my bag and apply at anytime. I’m so glad that I ordered it – i will definitely be purchasing the other shades. Below are a few pictures of the jam shade on me.

The boy brow gives me life. I’ve been looking for a good brow filler because my eye brows are blonde and barely exist. The boy brow is basically like mascara for your eyebrows. It works as a filler & shaper at the same time. I absolutely love it. Below is a photo with boy brow applied to my right eye brow and nothing on my left. Holy difference.

The milky jelly cleanser is amazing. It’s both gentle and strong. Leaving your face feeling soft and clean with the ability to dissolve your make up off of your face too. I used it after I showered and it made my face feel like new. I am super excited to use it again tomorrow!

I am looking forward to trying more of Glossier’s products. Stay tuned for more reviews!

This sea salt scrub detoxes, purifies, and rejuvenates your skin. I purchased it at Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago and I highly recommend it.

Lush Tea Tree Toner


I just recently started buying Lush products because they pride themselves in using only the freshiest and most natural ingredients. They also don’t test their products on animals and they only buy ingredients from companies who do not commission testing on animals. They test their products on human volunteers. 

Besides being an ethically responsible company, i honestly do love their products. Their Tree Tea Water Toner is amazing! I use it in the morning before I put my make up on and it brightens my skin. My skin is either oily or dry, depending on the day, so this toner reduces excess oil without drying my skin. Made of tea tree, juniper berry and grapefruit waters – this toner leaves my skin feeling refreshed and brighter while also balancing my skin tone.

Its the perfect product to travel with. I don’t know about anyone else, but being on an airplane or in a car for a few hours makes my skin gross, so during and after my travels, i use this Tea Tree Water.

The cherry on top is that… it’s not a fortune!!! 

3.3 fl. Oz. $9.95

8.4 fl. Oz. $21.95

Pre-Vaca

FullSizeRender-14This Skinny Me Tea 14 Day Cleanse is the perfect way to cleanse your system right before vacation. I drink hot green tea every morning and before bed, so i replaced my green tea with this skinny me tea.

It definitely helped to flatten my stomach, give me energy and feel my best right before vacation. No one wants to go on vacation feeling bloated and now you don’t have to. This company is out of Australia, so i paid extra for expedited shipping, but it still took 10 business days to get here. Luckily, I got it just in time to start and finish the 14 day cleanse before my vacation and I was very happy with the results.
