My La Mer Collection
My La Mer Collection
I’ve been a huge fan of La Mer and have tried many of their different products. Currently in my make up collection, I have these following La Mer products. The Mist 3.4oz ($80) - This product is very dangerous. Why is it so dangerous? Because it’s a little addicting. I usually give my face and neck a nice little spray whenever I feel dry or just want to freshen up. This mist is very refreshing and spraying it on my face makes me feel more energized and gets my skin more moisture. Often times I find myself spraying it just because it feels so nice. This can be dangerous because a bottle is pretty expensive at $80 a bottle, and you can run out very quickly if you aren’t careful with how much you are spraying. LA MER - LA MER The Lip Balm The Lip Balm ($65) - This lip balm is one of my favorite and go to lip balms I have. It does have a hint of mint in it which gives your lip a nice cool feeling, which is very refreshing. One bottle of this lip balm lasts awhile because you only need a little bit every application. LA MER - The Brilliance Brightening Facial Kit The Brilliance Brightening Facial Kit ($250) - This kit does wonders for your skin, but I usually only use it for my nightly routine because it is a little time consuming. It’s a two step mask, so it’s a little more hassle than your standard face masks. However, the results speak for itself and it’s definitely worth the time. LA MER - LA MER The Concentrate The Concentrate 1oz ($370) - This concentrate is very very expensive, but the results speak for itself. After using this concentrate, I can feel my skin soothed and strengthened immediately after use. You also only use a little bit per application so despite the high price tag, the bottle lasts for awhile, which makes it not too bad. As you can see, I have nothing but good things to say about all of these products, but than again, thats why it’s in my collection.

Laura Mercier’s Cocoa Pout Lipstick + Ciate Glitter Strom Eye Shadow = frost lipstick laura mercier - Crème Smooth Lip Colour ciaté - Glitter Storm Eyeshadow Palette I hate wasting good makeup, so I’m constantly finding new ways to use makeup that I would usually not use. That’s what happened when I got a Ciate Glitter eye shadow palette as a gift. I don’t wear glittery eye shadow, let alone standard eye shadow. So I was eager to find a way to make use of this eye shadow palette in a unique way. That’s when it hit me, I could make my own DIY frost lipstick with this palette. After some trial and error, I found that Laura Mercier’s lipstick works fairly well with this palette. I would mix the lipstick in with the desired glitter to make a nice frost lipstick. I usually just dip the lipstick into the glitter spot directly and than apply it to my lips. I’ve had some great compliments from friends and family when they see it and have had people ask me what brand I was using and where they could get it. They were all very surprised that it was a DIY frost lipstick. It’s a very fun process and because the palette has so many options and you have the ability to pair it with so many different lipsticks, it’s a great exploring opportunity to find the right match that works for you.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mini Lipstick Set
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mini Lipstick Set
YVES SAINT LAURENT - Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Mini Set YSL has been a brand that I’ve always trusted and have always loved their products. So when they came out with a mini lipstick set, I just had to get it and give it a try. It comes with four lipsticks, colors are predetermined, so thats a bummer because you can’t chose the color you’d prefer. However, the lipsticks are very good. First, the packaging is phenomenal. The case that the lipstick is encased in is gorgeous and has an extremely luxurious feel and look to it. Its a very reflective gold color and the metal material is cool to the touch. I love putting it on my makeup desk just to look at it, it’s like eye candy. The lipsticks itself is very good. The texture and moisturized feeling of the lipstick is great and the application is very easy. If you look up the lipsticks full size (the ones that come in the set are mini sizes), you can see that it comes with a very big variety of color, so there’s a color for everyone. Despite how great the lipstick is, I would not be buying the set again because the colors are not my preferred colors. I do love the lipstick, so I’ll definitely be getting more, I just won’t be getting the set. I’d rather purchase the full size and get the option to chose the desired color that I want.

Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup+Kiehl’s - Midnight Recovery Face Oil > serum foundation Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate ➕ Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate I’ve mixed a lot of beauty products just to test them out and see how they work together. Some don’t work so well together, some have no effect, and some work extraordinarily well. Two products that did do extremely well was Kiehl’s Midnight recovery face oil and Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place makeup. Kiehl’s midnight recovery face oil works extremely well to help take care of my skin by brightening and clearing it up. This serum doesn’t clog up pores and helps with acne. This oil also has a great fragrant smell to it and is very lightweight, which makes it easy to layer onto other products. It’s one of the main reasons I decided to use this with other products to try out. Estee Lauder’s Double Wear is a liquid foundation. It being a liquid also makes it easier to layer with other products, especially since it also has a matte finish. This foundation is very nice because it lasts all day and doesn’t get oily or cakey. To combine these two, I apply the foundation by Estee Lauder first, and than apply the oil by Kiehl’s. Because both are liquids, they are able to layer on top of each other fairly well. Both have unique traits and benefits that compliment each other, which makes it the ideal pair to combine.

Dupe Lipsticks
Dupe Lipsticks Pat McGrath Flesh 3 VS Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick 534B Makeup can get extremely expensive, especially because there’s so many products that can be used in combination and I’m always willing to try new products, so it definitely adds up. Because of this, I’m always open to trying makeup dupes whenever I find them. Makeup dupes can be a very hit or miss thing. Some are just outright unusable, while others work better than expected and can end up saving you a lot of money. One of these hits that I’ve stumbled across is the Wet n wild silk finish lipstick. Prior to finding this, I’ve been using Pat Mcgrath’s flesh 3 lipstick. Both of these have a similar brown red color, which makes the wet n wild a suitable replacement for the pat mcgrath. The main differences between the two is the texture and look it leaves on your lip. Pat McGrath’s is more of a matte texture where as the Wet N Wild is more of a lustre texture. Other than that, they are extremely similar. The Pat McGrath one costs $40 where as Wet N Wild is only $2, so I would 99% of the time go with the cheaper wet n wild option unless I was in a situation where I needed a matte look instead of a lustre look. However, most of the time I use the lipstick for the color and don’t worry too much about the texture.

Prevage Anti Aging Serum or Phormula 3-9 Repair
Prevage Anti Aging Serum or Phormula 3-9 Repair
“Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Anti Aging Serum” OR “Erno Laszlo - Phormula 3-9 Repair” I’ve used many many serums in the past to help improve my skin and these two serums have stood out as the best that I’ve tried. The two serums are Elizabeth Arden’s “Prevage Anti-Aging Serum” and Erno Laszlo’s “Phormula 3-9 Repair”. They both come in one ounce bottles with a bottle design that not only looks nice but also makes it easy to carry around. ERNO LASZLO - Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum Erno Laszlo’s serum is light, which makes it easy to apply and absorb into the skin. I like to use this in both my morning and nightly routines. I usually use two pumps per use during my routine. I’ve had some red scars on my face from acne and I can notice it fading away after I started using this serum. This serum also brightens my skin and has a very nice fragrant smell to it. It is a little expensive though, at $290 a bottle. Elizabeth Arden - PREVAGE Anti-Aging Daily Serum The other serum is Elizabeth Arden’s anti-aging serum. This serum is a lot cheaper, about a fraction of the price. It sells for $105 for an ounce bottle. This serum also works very well and makes my skin feel smooth and hydrated. However, the bottle design could use a new design. I’ve noticed that the pump stops working when the bottle is near empty, but if I shake the bottle, I can feel that there’s more serum inside. The design of the bottle makes it really hard to get the last bits of the serum out. I think this is extremely wasteful and can be fixed by a simple bottle design. I personally like the serum by Erno Laszlo a lot better, only thing that makes it inferior to Elizabeth Arden’s serum is the price tag. But you do get what you pay for and the Phormula 3-9 Repair is worth every penny.

The set that I’ve been renewing for months!
The set that I’ve been renewing for months!
Erno Laszlo - The Ultimate Lift Firmarine Starter Skin Kit ERNO LASZLO - The Ultimate Lift Firmarine Starter Skin Kit This set by Erno Laszlo comes with three deluxe sample sized creams/serums and a set of face masks. These items are themed around anti aging and skin lifting. The set costs $96, but the items inside make up a value of $160. Here’s the items that are included and my thoughts on each: Firmarine Serum - I really enjoy using this serum because of how effective it is. I use it twice a day, once in the morning and another time at night during my nightly routine. This serum is a little thick, but as soon as you apply it, you can feel your skin becoming tighter and firmer. Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30 - This moisturizer is very nice because it’s a daytime moisturizer with sunblock, which is surprisingly hard to find. Only complain about this product is that the smell can be a little strong, but you do get used to it after a few uses. Firmarine Night Cream - This night cream is a little thick, so a little bit goes a long way. Despite the ream being thick, it spreads very easily, and the thickness of the cream makes it cover a large area easily with just a little bit of the cream. It also has a nice fragrant to it, which is very pleasant. Firmarine Life Face Mask - This mask works extremely well and helps refresh my skin. It does require a little preparation due to it needing to be mixed, which is fine for my nightly routine since I’m not on a time crunch. I do not use this in the morning because of this since my mornings are usually rushed and time is of the essence. These four products all work extremely well and each product compliments one another. Unlike other sets, the products were picked carefully with a theme in mind so that we are not getting a random assortment of products. The price is also very good and I actually opt to repurchase this set instead of buying the four items individually because it saves me a lot of money.

Fresh Rose N’ Shine Skincare Set worth $98?
Fresh Rose N’ Shine Skincare Set worth $98?
fresh - Rose N’ Shine Skincare Set This set by Fresh costs $98 and is valued at around $127. It comes with three hydration items and a lip treatment product for a total of four items. Included Items: Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner - This is by far the best product in this set. This toner works wonders and I like to apply this after every step of my skin care routine. This toner also doesn’t leave behind any residue and leaves my skin soft after every use. Rose Deep Hydration Moisturizer - This cream has a very nice fragrant smell to it and it helps with my oily skin. You can definitely feel the difference on your face on days that you are using this cream versus the days that you are not. Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask - This face mask works pretty well. Only downside to this mask is the thickness of it. Since I use this during my nightly routine, I usually skip a few steps of my traditional routine so that I can use this mask. If I don’t skip a few steps, putting on this mask will make the other products feel sticky on my face since this masks thickness makes it not layer well. Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 - This lip balm is very good to use for hydrating your lips when it gets chappy. This set is definitely worth the value. Fresh’s products compliment each other very well. The only down side is that this set does sell out occasionally, and can be hard to find sometimes. If you can find it, it’s definitely worth picking up.
