It actually works!!?!
Okay, like everyone under the sun has seen the curology you tube ads, but I was a skeptic. However, I hit a bad spot with my skin and I was desperate. I had cystic acne and hormonal acne left dark scars on my face. For $5 in shipping it was worth to try something with a dermatologists oversight. Well I’m just over a month in and my skin is SO MUCH better! My cystic acne is gone and my scarring is slowly going away. The Tretinoin is a little harsh, but sunscreen and moisturizing really really help. You have a dermatologist in your pocket and you truly can’t beat that! It’s worth it to give it a shot!
I wish it wasn’t so Melty!
The color and formula are so nice that despite the fact that this lipstick got utterly wrecked by being in my make up back for only few minutes I’m giving it four stars. This is the brick lipstick color but I also have the purple color as well. They are such beautiful colors that stay all day. If you can buy on sale they’re worth it!

Middle of The Road
The Good: color range and pigmentation. The Bad: cap keeps coming off, needs to be sharpened, and general packaging issues. Also a little runny for a liner. I had a hard time with finding a berry colored lip liner, but with a generous selection colors this line delivered. General packaging issues have made it my least used liner, as it’s not self sharpening and The cap is less than sturdy so it looks messed up half the time. 3 stars. BITE - The Lip Pencil

My Favorite Bite Product!
The Lip Crayons from Bite (old formula) are some of my favorite lip sticks of all time! They are beautifully pigmented, creamy enough to be easy to apply, but not too creamy that they spread everywhere. I don’t feel they need a lip liner to be effective either. The packaging is super nice and sturdy, with an elegant high end design. I haven’t had the chance to try their new vegan formula, but if they’re anything like the old one, they’ll be great! #BITE - Matte Crème Lip Crayon[products]#[FiveStars]
I AM OBSESSED.
Note: the rest of my cotton pads went into my cotton pad dispenser. Have you ever wondered what luxurious clouds would feel like on your face? Wonder no more, the Shiseido Facial Cotton will have you feeling like a pampered Grecian Goddess in no time. Are these a luxury? YES. A necessity? Not even a little bit. Will I rebuy this? Absolutely. For $5 at Sephora I can feel like a fancy celebrity when I apply my toner at night for 40 days. It’s so soft and so dreamy, I think it’s so worth it. SHISEIDO - Facial Cotton
Great Finishing Powder!
I loved this little powder and used up every bit of it. However it is my second favorite to my Hourglass Veil Powder only because the Hourglass Veil is a slightly more natural finish and lasts forever. The CT powder is great on its own accord though. It’s a little pigmented so it makes a great touch up powder. It really does create a perfecting filter on your face. I docked a star because it was a little more temperamental than other powders in separating on my skin with certain primers. Overall a very solid 4 stars.

Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Foundation
Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation *skin is normally oily/combo but has recently been dry. Omg. Charlotte Tilbury. I feel like this brand came from no where and all of a sudden it blew up on Instagram and I get it. I get why. I was 10000% influenced to buy this by @breakfastatellies on Instagram and I have 0 regrets. I picked this up when I was visiting Sephora in Calgary (holla at the 5% tax) and I honestly have not looked back. I had been using the NARS matte foundation for YEARS and I was nervous to branch out because I loved that one so much and it matched so perfectly. I was legitimately shocked that I could love another foundation as much if not more than the NARS one. But here she is. I believe this again is the shade light neutral and it matches so so so perfectly. Again my skin is usually fair to light with pink undertones. I’m also obsessed with the way this applies. It’s so light and still provides a medium to full coverage and it’s easy to build up. It never feels me feeling Cakey and blends so well with my beauty blender. It also never interacts weirdly with my other skincare products which is a BLESSING. It also lasts all day without getting weird and creasy. At $50 it’s a little bit cheaper than my NARS foundation for about the same amount of product. It is a little bit pricey but at this point I’m used to spending this much on foundation so I think it’s worth it. The packaging is also glass and beautiful so definitely buy this because I for sure am going to keep repurchasing until I die.

HUDA BEAUTY Desert Dusk Palette
WHAT IT IS? 18- pan eye shadow palette. TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: 8 matte shades 6 pressed pearls 3 duo-chrome toopers 1 daring glitter OVERALL THOUGHTS: This palette is sooo gorgeous!!! It has everything I need to create everyday (more subtle) looks, colorful looks, bold looks. The shades are so well picked, great selection of crease colors for different looks. The shadows are super pigmented, mattes are buttery soft and the sparkly shades don’t have much fall out and they all blend beautifully. I’m loving this palette!!! WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: Great selection of matte and sparkly shades. This palette brings me joy. I also love that it’s made in Italy (not like her 9-pan palettes that are made in China) WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes!!!!! IS IT WORTH IT? Regular retail price $65 While I do love this palette I would wait for a promotion. They were (if I remember correctly) 50% off during Black Friday.

Ain’t sexy but works
SKIN TYPE: acne prone, combination, dehydrated PRODUCT: La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 This balm looks so clinical and the cream is so intimidating due to its mild white cast, however it spreads nearly clear with some rubbing. It’s been great at creating a barrier between my irritated and sensitized skin but I can’t help but continue to notice the film it leaves on my skin. Not the best under make up and I haven’t seen any difference in healing my scars or acne. Great for eczema and irritated skin but keep your expectations low. I’ve found so many more products that have done the job just as well.

Amika Detangler ✨
This is the Amika The Wizard detangling primer. It is 4 oz and is meant to detangle hair and prep hair for heating tools. First of all this smells liquid spray absolutely amazing. Amika has such a unique scent and I adore it. Sometimes I’ll use this almost as a leave in product just because I want my hair to smell like this. I use it often after I shower to help detangle my hair before brushing it out. I love the extra perk of it being protective too for when I use that. I love the packaging of this as well. The pattern is really cute but the spray nozzle works really well. I adore this and highly recommend it. Five stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️amika: - The Wizard Detangling Primer
