🌸Hi! I’m Paola, I love makeup and skincare🌸 ig:longlastingvalue
This is my second fenty Snapshadows palette! I love my pastel frosts so much that I needed to get this rosy toned one! The mattes blend perfectly and are so creamy! I definitely want to get a few more of these because they are a great price and formula!
FENTY BEAUTY-Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette
🎀 Clean Blushes🎀
I purchased this Kosas Cosmetics cream blush and highlighter duo and have been loving it! I am a huge fan of kosas; I love their lip oil, face tint and lip balms! This has been added to my new faves of the brand!

🥒 Clean Beauty 🥒
Let’s talk clean beauty! I am a huge lover of clean products! Many products we use are full of harmful and toxic ingredients that we don’t recognize! Always make sure you are reading labels to ensure your products aren’t harmful! These are some of my favorite clean skincare faves! I’ll post a clean beauty and wellness post soon! These products are some new faves and old faves!
GLOW RECIPE-Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream
This palette is 100% my spring color palette! I have a lot hate relationship with morphe shadows, I am enjoying this one! The colors are vibrant and back well but are a little tricky to blend without them morphing into one! They are also better with a good eye base as they last longer! The colors are very unique I haven’t seen a similar color story before!
MORPHE-35I ICY FANTASY ARTISTRY PALETTE
This dreamy look was inspired by my favorite 80s makeup trends and a heavy base! I wear my favorite Becca foundation, primer and highlighter! I used my morphe boss mood palette and my Nyx palette! I used my Becca foundation to carve out some clouds and used pixi glowy blush as my blush with some flesh pot on my eyes and cheek for a wet look!
MORPHE-35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette
This look is inspired by spring and how I long for it to arrive! I’ve been using my morphe boss babe palette to set my liners and make sure they don’t rub off! The red and green colors are incredible! I love using the lord jones cbd oil as a highlight as I don’t like super blinding highlighters! And as per usual my cloudpaint! Also really enjoying the fenty beauty full frontal mascara! And my Dior lip glow!
MORPHE-35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette
My Lips: Always need lip balm/might be obsessed with having hydrated lips. So, dehydrated. About the Product: Overnight sleeping mask to hydrate your lips. Texture/Consistency/Packaging: This one is the berry flavor and it smells devine. Has a very thick texture on your lips. A little goes a long way! Cute packaging. Very instagramable 👍 My Experience/Thoughts: I feel like I’m on the outs on this one, but I don’t feel like this lip mask did anything for me? It just felt like a very thick lip balm that I wore at night. I didn’t wake up feeling like my lips were hydrated. When I woke up in the middle of the night, I still had to apply lip balm. Do I Like It? Overall, disappointed 😔 Worth It/Would I Recommend? I’d say pass. I’m guessing there are better lip masks out there. Smells good though 🤷♀️ LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask
LANEIGE-Lip Sleeping Mask
Can I bathe in this?
This is the most stunning cleansing balm that I’ve ever had the pleasure to experience. Cleansing balms are perfect for nighttime to remove make-up, SPF and any impurities before cleansing with a water-based cleanser to clean the actual skin. This smells like cherries and is gorgeously smooth. It melts in the hands and on the face and also has Vitamin C in it to help brighten skin. I adore this and would recommend and repurchase every time.
FARMACY-Very Cherry Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm
So far I’m loving these! As you can see I picked cherry, mango, and birthday. I heard people saying the product is like vaseline (and it is) and I honestly don’t have a problem with that. I love using vaseline on my lips especially the coco butter one. Occlusives are great! But I purchased these solely for the scent (all🤤), tint (cherry), and shimmer (birthday). I also know of some people that HATE the smell of the cherry one because I it smells more like a medicated cherry but I honestly love it. I don’t think it smells that medicated, it just smells like candy to me. I’ve been looking for a good tinted lip balm for so long and I finally found one! This is literally a first impression since the products arrived today. I hope my opinions don’t change! 💖❤️
Glossier.-Balm Dotcom Trio
Holy Grail worthy serum!
This is hands down my favourite serum! I’ve been using this day and night for a little over 2 months and will be so sad when I reach the end of the beautiful bottle 😭 I can’t express how much I love this serum as it is so hydrating and has made my skin brighter, smoother and plumper (even reducing the appearance of some of my fine lines) 😍 On most days my skincare routine consists of misting the leftover essence from the Ultra Rejuvenating Camellia Overnight Facial Treatment Mask (also pictured) onto my face followed by the Full-Blossom Serum and topping it off with the Camellia Seed Oil. This combination is so hydrating that on my days I just apply spf after! The serum absorbs easily into my combination skin leaving it feeling silky smooth - no sticky or oily feeling that I do get with other serums! I recommend it for any skin type including those with sensitive skin! Key Ingredients: 🍃 Green tea, camellia flower seed oil and gotu kola – helps prevent premature aging and the appearance of fine wrinkles. 🌱 Camellia flower seed oil – promotes collagen synthesis giving visible plumping and rejuvenated look. 💧 Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids – moisturizes and creates skin barrier. 🍀 Centella asiatica – calms inflammation and soothes the skin. 🚫 does not contain paraben, phthalate, mineral oil, sulfate, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances, or sodium lauryl sulfate
FLORISHE-Camellia Full-Blossom Serum (includes one complimentary facial treatment- total value)
SKIN TYPE: acne prone, combination, dehydrated PRODUCT: Glossier super pure I honestly didn’t have very high expectations for Glossier’s niacinamide and zinc serum, but I was pleasantly surprised! Several reviews on their website have stated that this serum “cured” their breakouts ranging from small bumps to deep cystic acne. While I haven’t seen much change in my acne since using this, this serum has reduced the redness in my face left from post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, eczema, wind burn, or the ruddiness left after a workout! So if you deal with these issues, I highly recommend looking into this product! The texture is similar to a thin gel moisturizer but with a few pats the product absorbs right into the skin. Unfortunately Glossier hasn’t restocked this product in a while but I’ll definitely be one of the first to buy it again when they do. 💕Glossier. - Super Pure
Strawberry Scrub Forever (cue The Beatles)
This is possibly the gentlest physical exfoliator I’ve tried thus far. I’m usually big on chemical ones but for stubborn dry and scaly patches and just an occasional morning pick me up, this baby is excellent! First of all, Fresh always nails it with the packaging for me and this is no exception. I love the simple white tube and strawberry vine design. The product squeezes out easily without being too thick OR too runny. And the product itself is divine. It’s a slightly grainy, delicious smelling-scrub that dissolves easily in warm water without being overly abrasive on the skin. It buffs away dry skin like a dream, but I probably wouldn’t use it on your face if you have active blemishes. I like to use it once a week or so in the mornings to smooth out my face! She is pretty spendy for a scrub though - I was gifted this one through Influenster and I’m not sure I find it enough of a necessity to shell out my own cash to re-up when this runs out. However, I do think it is a beautiful product and I thoroughly enjoy having it in my collection if you DID want to splurge! (Esp. if physical exfoliation is your thang)
