Review | The Face Shop Lovely Me:Ex You & Face Blusher in 02 Gold Glow
Hi everyone! So before we get into the review I just wanted to let you know that I forgot my nice camera at my boyfriend’s place* so the pictures in this review were taken with my camera phone. They aren’t the best quality but we’ll make do. :D
Review | NARS Audacious Lipstick in Vera
Hi everyone! Today I want to share my thoughts on one of the new lipsticks from the NARS Audacious line. The shade I have is “Vera” which is NOT one of the retailer exclusive shades so you should be able to find it anywhere NARS is sold. And for all you Vegas locals, I was able to buy mine at the NARS store in The Forum Shops for $32.
Skin Care | New Additions
Skin care junkie #2 here with just a few new bits that I’ve added my ever-growing collection. I’ve decided to up my game a bit with a few higher-end products that are mere enhancements of things I’ve already tried and loved.
Review | Geo Tri Color Brown Circle Lenses
Hi everyone! Alina here with my first circle lens review! These are the Geo Tri Color Brown circle lenses from PinkyParadise. I’ve actually had these guys for at least a few months but I didn’t think to review them until now. :P
Review | Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher #6
Hi everyone! I have a backlog of products to review so I’ve been doing my best to churn out as many reviews as possible. Here’s another Korean beauty product by SKINFOOD called the Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher. I got this in #6* and so far I’m enjoying it!
Review | The Face Shop Face It Moisture Pore Balm
i everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing one of my favorite primer type products right now. I purchased this in another huge Korean beauty haul and I’m really excited to talk about it.
Asian Beauty Haul | Featuring Peripera and Tony Moly Products
For the past couple of weeks I’ve been going crazy over Korean and Japanese beauty products, and the photo above is just part of my stash thus far.
I did some major damage at an Asian beauty store when I was visiting my boyfriend in California this past week. Image in Monterey Park has a HUGE selection despite the limited shop space and I was able to find a ton of skincare products I didn’t expect to see. Here’s what I got:
Mini Haul! | Benefit Benebalm and Lollitint Review
Goodness, long time no post! Even though it’s summer time I’ve still been pretty busy with grad school, but now that I’m back in Vegas* and (somewhat) settled in again, let’s get on with the review!
There are four new Benefit tinted lip balms ($18 each) in Benefit’s line corresponding with the lip and cheek stains of the same colors. I have the shade BeneBalm which is the sister to the Benefit BeneTint stain.
Skin Care | Emergency!
It’s not everyday that your skin decides to take a turn for the worse; but when it does, it always seems to be right before a big day! If you have a special occasion coming up or just need to get clear skin ASAP, this is my routine that never fails to clear my skin in less than a week.
Haul | Sephora Birthday Goodies
With Sephora’s recent VIB sale and my April birthday, I figured it was time to treat myself and try a slew of high-end makeup and skin care products. These were all highly recommended and had been on my wish-list for quite some time, and I’m pleased to say that I’ve been very happy with every product I purchased!
Review | Bésame Cosmetics Cake Mascara in ‘Black’
Hello friends! Alina here, long time no post! Today I’m talking about something very pertinent to my interest in vintage makeup products.
Beauty | Current Favorites
With my first installment of a monthly beauty/lifestyle favorites post, I thought it’d be a nice idea to include a few items that I plan on using more often with the upcoming spring weather. What’s most exciting is that most of these products are relatively new and quite affordable.
Review | Maybelline Limited Edition Baby Lips Pink’ed Collection
Left to Right: Blush Burst, Mad for Magenta, Pop of Pink, & Rose Rush
Cute packaging, bright colors, and affordable prices- what more could I ask for? I spotted the new five-piece collection at my local Walgreens and fell in love instantly. With the exception of the absent ‘Very Berry’ shade, I picked up as many of these uber-moisturizing, pink-toned lip balms as I could.
Review | LUSH 9 to 4 Cleansing Lotion
Hello friends, Alina here! Lush is a rare indulgence for me as the only Lush store in my area is a bit out of the way. However, when I do go, I do a loooot of damage.
For those of you new to Lush cosmetics, they’re a cruelty-free and vegan friendly brand that promotes natural handmade products. All of the Lush stores that I’ve been to smell fantastic as well. :P
Lip Service | BITE Beauty Luminous Creme Lipsticks
Hello friends! Alina here with the first installment of Lip Service, a series of posts concerning some of my favorite go to lip products.
BITE Beauty is a Sephora and (sometimes) QVC exclusive brand that has some AMAZING lipcolors in their arsenal. Not only do they have a broad color range but the texture of these lip products is unbelievable. I have dry lips so the creaminess of BITE lipcolors has even out-hydrated some of my MAC Amplified Creme and Lustre finish lipsticks. Perhaps even more impressive is the pigmentation. The versatility of these shades allows you to start off with a hint of color using a light touch or a full on application directly from the tube.
