Miniature Milk Makeup haul

Milk Makeup is a brand I’ve been dying to try. But it is not in my budget. So when I got my hands on these mini products for under $20, I couldn’t wait to play with them!! Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer
after one use, I like it, but it’s something that I’ll have to use all of before I decide for sure. Milk MAKEUP - Blur Stick
easy to apply. Didn’t have to use my fingers. Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek
love!! I enjoy a cream blush, and the fact that it does double duty as a lip gloss is even better. Milk MAKEUP - Kush Waterproof Mascara
this is the product that I’ve been most excited to try. The brush is quite large and it applies the mascara nicely without clumping. What’s your favorite Milk product?

Another Marshall’s Haul
Before the snow hit in the north east, I had to hit up Marshall’s so I had some new products to play with. This shopping trip I found makeup products from Becca and Milk to try out. As with any trip to Marshall’s it’s hit or miss with products and shade ranges, so I know this foundation is a bit too light, but the undertone was right. There were also a few other things I wanted, but their packaging was open and the products were clearly touched. So let’s dive in to what I used for this look (3rd pic, I don’t use any filters/beauty mode). Milk MAKEUP - Blur Stick I like the powdery finish it leaves on my skin. I’ll have to use it a few more times before I decide how much I like it. BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation I’m generally not a fan of full coverage foundation. But this does not feel heavy or caking on my skin (yes, it’s a shade too light). I applied it pretty lightly, but you can easily build this up to you preferred coverage level. BECCA - Limited Edition Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder I was pleasantly surprised by this powder. I usually only use powder lightly under my eyes o set my concealer, but this was so light that I used it all over my face. It did not settle into my fine lines or make me look dry (aging skin). I applied with a velour puff and used a fluffy brush to remove the excess. Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek I’m a big fan of cream products and the fact that this does double duty, lips and cheeks, makes it a winner in my book. Milk MAKEUP - Kush Waterproof Mascara I’ve been dying to try this mascara (if you’ve read any of my previous posts, you know I’m on an unending hunt for the perfect mascara). But I couldn’t justify the price tag if it was just going to end up in the “meh” pile of mascaras I already have. It gave a great first impression, but I’ll have to use it a few more times before I decide to invest in a full sized tube. For under $40, I got to try some high end products that are usually out of my budget. I love Marshall’s for exactly this reason! What is your favorite Marshall’s find?

More empties this month!!
After using Milk MAKEUP - Blur Stick for a little over a year now I don’t think this primer is ideal for me. I have skin that can get pretty dry, especially during the colder months. My combo skin didn’t like the chalky feel it gave. I would recommend this for oiler skin for sure. Though it is said that this is suitable on all skin tones, I cannot wear just this alone. I’m just a little too dark. But combined with a foundation, concealer or bb cream which is fine. I hope they eventually come out with different versions with different tints and undertones for our melanin girlies😭. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who are prone to white heads/ black heads either, or who have wrinkles or smile lines. But more so for those who struggle with the appearance of their pores. As for the Glossier. - Boy Brow , I think the spoolie that is used is perfect for both thick brows and sparse brows!! The tinted brow gel is a perfect hue, not too dark, not too light, and looks so natural. The formula is very light and not heavy like a lot of pomades. And you can build up the color too to fit your liking. This brow gel makes a natural brow look cleaner but also has the ability to make a chiseled brow to appear more natural!

Banana Bliss 🍌
I am a sucker for bananas! So when I heard about Glow Recipes Banana Moisturizer I definitely wanted to try it. It only took me forever to do so!!! I personally like this one because it feels lightweight but you get a rich feeling moisturizer. It’s packed with amazing ingredients like banana, chia seed, magnesium, turmeric, and cica all to help keep your skin balanced and hydrated. It does have a banana scent, reminiscent of a banana laffy taffy (which happens to be one of my top favorite candies). The added fragrance is listed as last where as banana is listed in the top 15 so the fragrance is very minimal and can be from the banana BUT although this is listed as non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic there are reviews stating the opposite. If you are prone to breakouts you definitely want to patch test and be aware this has caused breakouts. I’ve had no issues with this and use it both as an am and pm moisturizer. For me that says a lot. I typically use a lighter moisturizer for the am and a heavier for the pm but this is balanced enough for both. I’ve tested a handful of moisturizers over the last few months and I’d put this in the top 3. 1- PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer, 50ml 2- Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer 3- GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream I’ll have reviews to come on more moisturizers (Kate Somerville, Farmacy Beauty, Paula’s Choice) $39 is pretty average for a moisturizer and I’d say with daily use it would last around two months. The amount shown is all needed to cover face, neck and chest. I’ve actually not been a big Glow Recipe fan. I feel for a K-Beauty brand they are very gimmicky and overpriced but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. And they seem to be coming out with a few more hits that I’d like to try before making a final decision on the brand itself. Hoping to try soon: GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer What I do like of theirs: GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask(no longer made 😢 best hydration boost. Next best thing... GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum(review coming soon) Have you tried anything from Glow Recipe? What’s been a hit? What’s been a miss? Thanks for reading. Hit the 👏 and follow if you enjoy ❤️ you my skinnies 🍒

Good skn w/ some frizzy hair, how’s Quarantini?
Basically me everyday wash routine morning and night is Step 1: Cleanse with average Hydrating cleanser (the one that doesn’t foam) *MAKE SURE YOURE CLEANSER YOUR SKN FOR 60 SECS LADIES/GENTS) We want all that dirt and debris off ur skin. Step 2: I used persa gel which is 10% benzoyl peroxide to fight acne. I use it morning and night, but make sure in the morning to really use a hydrating moisturizer since it can dry out the skin. Step 3: MOISTUREEEEEEEE with whatever works for your skin sometimes i use two moisturizers idk I’m weird like that 🤣🤣 Last but not least in the morning I use sunscreen ALWAYS WEAR YA SUNSCREEN LADIES/GENTS I can’t stress this enough BTW: your skincare routine does not have to include 30 different products, I’ll give you guys a break down if your new or just want some insight on a super easy and effective routine without spending 30 mins in the bathroom. But hey I understand the skincare routine is a form of relaxation sis I’m not mad at ya. Do ya thang ! I’m about to go steam my face rn brb 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

Again.. another brown red shade hahah. It’s like my signature color! This one is a bit pinker than I usually wear when it’s applied, but I enjoy the color and the formula. rms beauty - Wild with desire mini lipstick set I got this in a mini clean beauty kit from Sephora and I didn’t like this at first. the formula got cakey and a little dry, but after working with it a few times returned to its creamy state. This applies so well and I love the bullet. I think the packaging is lovely and I’m probably going to pick up some more RMS lips because of this. The shade is so lovely, and the formula turned out to be just fine. It has a satin like finish and is very long lasting! The formula seems fairly hydrating and it contains their signature oil. The full-size is $28 and I would def repurchase this shade again!

The BEST lip gloss and highlighter duo 🖤
The BEST lip gloss and highlighter duo 🖤
I’ve been trying out a lot of Fenty Beauty lately! I recently discovered her gloss bomb in Diamond Milk and absolutely fell IN LOVE with the product. I saw on Sephora they had a set with a mini gloss bomb in Fu$$y and a mini Diamond Bomb All Over Veil in How Many Carats?! for $25 and immediately put it in my cart! The Gloss Bomb is hands down my favorite formula of lip gloss! It’s not sticky and looks absolutely stunning on the lips. The shade Fu$$y is a little more sheer on the lips than the swatch. It gives you a really pretty flush to the lips with a hint of juicy sparkle. To me it personally smells like fruit punch which is so unique for a lip product. They last pretty well throughout my shift at work too. I think my only gripe is the packaging. It’s really pretty but it gets finger prints on it easily. But it’s seriously the best lip gloss I own. Now the veil highlighter is different than any highlighter I own. It’s described as a veil and it is exactly that. It’s a a beautiful, sheer wash of sparkle on your cheekbones. If you don’t like sparkle in your highlight you won’t like this. It’s hard to see in the swatch but it just gracefully dusts your cheeks with fine white glitter and makes you look so ethereal. The highlighter is really small but I haven’t found myself going through it really fast so I don’t mind it. It’s become one of my favorite highlighters in my collection. (Also, disclaimer. Mine looks peach because of my foundation. Somehow my foundation from my brush rubbed off on the product. It applies like the picture of it on Sephora and looks that way) Personally for me I find this set 100% worth it. I think both products are stunning and high quality. They are definitely on the smaller side but are such favorite products of mine I don’t mind it. FENTY BEAUTY - Diamond Bomb Baby Mini Lip Gloss and Highlighter Set

Blush vs. Bronzer? Do You Have to Choose?
Blush vs. Bronzer? Do You Have to Choose?
If you are one of those who look to enhance the complexion, chances are you’ve found yourself in the tricky situation when you don’t know which one to reach for in the morning - your blush or bronzer? Maybe you’ve got both on your dressing table, but do you really know when to use which?   Blush Blush is used to add a touch of flushed colour, usually to the apples of your cheeks. It warms up the skin, generating a “fresh-faced” effect. It tends to come in different kinds of pink, like rose or plum, but you can also find some with a beige or orange undertone. The key to enviable blush application is to keep it light as blush products are often very pigmented. The blush I use is NARS - NARS BlushAmour, which is matte rose pink. It has a superfine, silky, powder texture, which results in soft and blendable application. I apply it with a blush brush, starting with a tiny amount and then build up to the colour density I want. Bronzer Bronzer can be used on cheeks too like blush, but also the jawline, hairline, nose or chin as needed. It usually comes in variations of brown, suitable for contouring (with a matte one) or adding some glow on your face (if you use one with a light shimmer). I use the Estēe Lauder #29 Limited Edition Sculpting Bronzer in the ESTĒE LAUDER - Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush, which comes in a golden case alongside an applicator. The bronzer is matte medium brown with a silky texture, which I like to use around my jawline for the natural hue that accentuates the angles of my face. When it comes to when to use blush and when to use bronzer - personally I don’t think there is a fixed answer! In colder seasons when my skin appears dull, blush helps to bring back a fresh, warm appearance. In summertime, bronzer gives me a healthy, natural, sun-kissed look. Sometimes I even combine the two, blush for highlighting and bronzer for contouring - because, why bother to choose one when you can have both?

A versatile makeup product has three functions!
A versatile makeup product has three functions!
When I travel, I don't like to bring a lot of makeup products because it makes my luggage very heavy. Therefore, I usually bring some products that can have multiple functions. Today I will introduce you to a product that I have used very frequently recently. It can be used as eye shadow, blush and lipstick at the same time. It is very versatile!   This product is BOBBI BROWN - Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks. It is a multi-functional product. Bobbie Brown says it can be used as blush and lipstick, and sometimes I use it as an eye shadow. I recommend the color number is Blushed Rose. Its texture is creamy, but it will not make you feel sticky, and its color rendering is also very good. Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, it will feel very suitable, and it will blend with your liquid foundation very well. Its packaging is Bobbie Brown's classic black design, with its logo. It is very small and easy to carry, very suitable for you to carry when traveling or on business. Because it has more functions, you don't need to bring many other makeup products.   When I do my daily makeup, I usually apply it to my mouth first, and then apply the rest of my fingers to my cheeks. This is not wasteful, and the blush drawn is also very natural. It will make your complexion look as good as you are born with. Suppose my makeup needs some eyeshadow for embellishment. In that case, I will also use this product, it will not make your eyelids feel very sticky. The eyeshadow, blush and lipstick are all in the same color to make your makeup look very coordinated. Its durability is also very good, and I will not take off my makeup all day. Of course, the premise is that you set your makeup well.   The price is also very reasonable, one for less than $50. If you also need a portable multi-functional makeup product, I think you can buy one and try. It will definitely make you very satisfied.

Best Value for the Quality!
Best Value for the Quality!
I’ve been wanting to try the Pat McGrath MatteTrance lipstick formula for what seems like a lifetime, so when I picked up the Divine Rose, I added this mini trio the cart! This limited release 𝓢𝓴𝓲𝓷 𝓢𝓱𝓸𝔀 𝓥2 contains the shades ℂ𝕙𝕣𝕚𝕤𝕥𝕪, 𝔹𝕖𝕒𝕦𝕥𝕚𝕗𝕦𝕝 𝕊𝕥𝕣𝕒𝕟𝕘𝕖𝕣, & 𝔽𝕝𝕖𝕤𝕙 𝟛 ❣️ Usually with sets, there is always that one shade that you could care less for, but surprisingly, I love all of these shades; Christy would have to be my favorite - perfect everyday nude; not too pink, not too brown. I can’t wait to rock Flesh 3 in the fall; it’s a gorgeous deep nude. The formula is nothing short from perfection - fully matte, not drying on the lips, long wearing, comfortable, and 100% fully opaque. This trio set provides the right amount of product to determine whether you’d want to invest in a full size, and to experiment with multiple shades & tones. Best part? It’s only $25 (available directly on PatMcGrath.com or Sephora) - that’s a steal considering how high end & luxurious Pat McGrath products are. There is no shortage when it comes to quality in her products. I think I’m going to grab a mini trio lip gloss set to try next! 🖤 PAT McGRATH LABS - Mini MatteTrance Lipstick Trio
