NUXE Rêve de Miel lip balm
NUXE - Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm 15g I picked this lip balm up in Germany after having it on my wish list for a while, and it’s very nice, especially because it isn’t a shiny finish and is a natural finish to put a matte lipstick over. You get a lot so it is worth the money. Sometimes it has a really weird texture if you apply too much but usually it’s good.

Colourpop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Setting Mist
COLOURPOP - Hydrating Setting Mist I picked this up because it was inexpensive and I was out of setting spray and I know that I like Colourpop’s stuff. It’s a nice spray, but not a wow spray. It’s a fairly fine mist and it makes my powder look like skin again, but I haven’t noticed anything too wow. Probably would purchase in a pinch, but it’s not my favorite.

Bioderma Atoderm SOS Spray
BIODERMA - Atoderm SOS Spray This saved my dry winter skin. If moisturizing doesn’t cut it, I’ll spray this on the dry spots on my face and put the moisturizer on top and it’s amazing. It’s a very think spray, not like the Mario Badescu or Florence by Mills, but like a lotiony spray. Overall I love this and wish it was sold in the US.

Pixi Endlessly Silky Eye Pen in Bronze Beam
pixi - Endless Silky Eye Pen I’ve wanted to try doing a smoky liner for a while and loved this bronzey color. I picked this up and was able to easily smoke it out with a flat brush. This is highly pigmented and overall a nice little eyeliner! The only downside is that you have to sharpen it with a eye pencil sharpener, which I get annoyed with pretty quick.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick
Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick- Pillow Talk Collection I got this lil sample from Sephora and while I normally do not like nude shades, this one is beautiful. I find it similar in color to the Fresh Honey Lip Balm that I reviewed earlier, but obviously (because this is a matte lipstick not a lip balm) it has a lot more staying power and a matte formula. I probably wouldn’t buy this again, because I’ve used this sample so rarely and don’t reach for this color typically, if you love a nude lipstick, this is for you. It’s so beautiful and comfortable on the lips as well.

NYX - Love Lust Disco Soft Matte Lip Cream Trio I split this pack with my best friend and the only one I kept was the shade Copenhagen. This is surprisingly such a comfortable matte color. It’s been a while since I’ve really liked a traditional matte liquid lipstick, but this is just so comfortable and had great staying power. The other shades are a more neutral color and a red, which was exactly what my friend was looking for. She knows I like the darker shades so that’s why I was given this one. If you have dry lips and want a good matte lipstick that won’t kill you, I highly recommend this one.

HONEST BEAUTY BLUSHES
HONEST - Crème Cheek Blush One of my holy grail blush formulas! I love the creamy texture of these blushes! They’re very emollient but apply perfectly sheer (but buildable) on the cheeks. All 3 of the shades that I have are flattering on my skin tone. In the video, I swatched them pretty heavy-handed! They look WAY more sheer when I apply on my cheeks. If you like a blush that leaves a sheen on the skin, this is the one for you. On the days where I want my makeup to be a little longer-lasting or matte, I will powder over the blushes. But on the day-to-day, I leave it alone and embrace the glowy effect! I highly recommend this blush, and I already have to so many of my friends who love it! It works on so many skin types- AND it’s a clean formula. What more could you want?

I’m Blushing | Honest Creme Cheek Blush
The Honest Blush brings out a natural-looking, dewy flush. This is sheer blush that builds with for instant, creamy color! I love this blush! It comes in this small compact and has a great mirror with it as well. The color is ‘rose pink’ and is really pigmented but also blends out really nicely! This would be perfect to wear for a “no makeup- makeup” look! You can purchase this at CVS or Target for $13! Worth every penny! HONEST - Crème Cheek Blush

Cute lil’ blush pots 💗
I love the whipped formula of the INC.redible Bounce Blush! It’s a bit tricky at first because they set quick on the skin so you need to work them fast and I’ve found it best to apply a little at a time so it doesn’t apply blotchy but once you get he hang of it you’ll love it! I have two out of three shades, INC - For The First Time Bounce Blush Be My First Kiss 3g is my favorite out of the two I own! It’s a burnt peachy color with a slight iridescent shimmer that looks so pretty on the skin! It makes you look alive and healthy. My first love is a deep rose/mauvey shade that I feel would look better on a deeper skin tone than mine but I still love it; the formula on these is great, the pot is so small and cute perfect for traveling and they add a nice amount of color and last pretty well on the skin, oh and they’re priced very well! Definitely recommend 🙌🏼

Lip Treatment in disguise
Kopari’s Coconut Lip Glossy is a petroleum free lip treatment that doubles as a gloss. I think of it as a luxe tinted lip balm. While I love the original, the tinted shade in “Birthday Suit” is one of my favorites. I’ve used this product for a little over 2 years now. I have a tube of this lip glossy everywhere. There is one at work, one at home and one in my bag. I admire the high quality ingredients in this product that help heal and moisturize my lips. It’s formulated with squalane, shea butter and 100% coconut oil. This product makes my lips feel so smooth and hydrated. I love to throw Birthday Suit on when I have light makeup days because it’s easy to apply and I love the sheer tint that it gives my lips. I also really enjoy that it’s not sticky and that it’s super long wearing, I can feel it on my lips hours after applying it! With that being said, I definitely think it’s worth the price tag; especially considering that one tube lasts me at least five months with everyday use. I’d highly recommend this product to people on the go, who would like a flattering and hydrating lip treatment and who love a long wearing lip product.

Kosas Creme Blush/Highlight Palettes
These Kosas blush and highlighter palettes are so versatile. For my light-medium skin tone these colours all work great for me! I currently have 3 of these creme palettes and they are all GORGEOUS. I first bought my first palette (Tropic Equinox) due to the Instagram hype: if you have seen these on Insta, you will know what I mean - everyone is raving about it. But the subsequent two purchases were because my experience with Tropic Equinox was so good (wearing the highlighter in my selfie here!) The texture is creamy, pigmented, and yet so easy to blend into the skin. I like to use my fingers to apply these and that seems to be the most popular method as well. The finish is natural and has a slight sheen so you always look glowy AF. I like pairing this with a lightweight foundation (I love Colourpop’s Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturiser) because these allow your natural radiance to shine through. I would definitely recommend these to all my friends! For 34 USD this might seem a little steep at first, but I can assure you it is 100% worth the money. I have not used another blush brand since getting these! Kosas - Color & Light: Crème Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo

ColourPop Jelly Much Shadows These are the two Colourpop Jelly Much shadows from their Strawberry collection! Strawberry Jam is a pinky copper with gold sparkle. Strawberry Jelly is a reddish coral with pink and silver sparkle. I used Strawberry Jam the other day and loooooooved it. I haven't used Strawberry Jelly yet but it goes along really nicely with the rest of the collection.
