Blood Sugar ⭐️ Easy Blend ⭐️ Melanin Friendly
JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Blood Sugar Eyeshadow Palette This palette is so sophisticated with its faux red leather case. From everyday to night glam, these shades are pigmented and blendable. Building these up creates great depth, you can differentiate every color. Theres perfect amount of mattes to shimmer ratio. It’s hard for me to find a formula for neutral mattes that show up on my skin but I don’t have that problem with this palette. I tear up a lot because my eyes are sensitive, but this shadow does not move. It’s almost as if it is waterproof. Since this palette has lots of deep reds, I don’t need to conceal my eyes, it just makes it look deeper! 🌶 Looks great without primer, but be warned that it does stain like every other eye pigment. ⭐️ Some of the deepest shade such as ‘Extraction’ doesn’t pick up well on brush because the pan is pressed so hard. I have to dig in to get some shadow, though the best part of this palette is that it has almost to no fall out. I’ve experienced some patchiness with ‘Coma’, but with a little bit of building and blending, it finally worked out. Overall, this is a great palette for ANYONE. From light skin to dark, this has great shade range to fit any occasion. Beautiful ⭐️🥵

Affordable but Chalky? - Morphe
This is a everyday palette that’s versatile so you can go from day to night in seconds. Some colors blend well together and some are patchy, which is a overall pattern with Morphe (for me). They’re very chalky and dry which results in a lot of fall out but the pro is that they’re pigmented. You can build a solid base with the mattes because they’re quite opaque. Same goes for the shimmers, they’re more like foils in the sense that they don’t have much depth and the shimmers are one dimensional. But the great part is, they don’t have fall out. They’re quite creamy and stay in place. They don’t reflect much and aren’t as sophisticated as higher brands but I’m probably asking too much for $30. Use a good primer and the looks stays in place all day. It’s a great palette for beginners and makeup lovers that want a quick look. TL;DR: Great palette for beginners, everyday palette for day and night looks. A glitter hater would love this because the shimmers have no fallout. $30 MORPHE - 35V Stunning Vibes Artistry Palette

Essential Pop of Color!! - Huda Neon Obessesions
I am a eye palette fiend and out of all palettes eye (hah) have seen this is visually pleasing and creative. If you hate glitter I wouldn’t get this because the NEON part is essentially the shimmers. They’re very opaque besides one which is a duo chrome but when applied wet, they pop!! Huda’s glitter formula is very soft and reflects in insane ways because they usually have 3-4 different coloured particles. The mattes give a soft pastel look rather than neons but if you really took your time you can build it up- ❤️ The glitters have a little bit of fallout and since the glitters are very fine it’s very annoying to clean them up. I’d try a oil based cleanser or balm to take it off. Other than that. This is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me. HUDA BEAUTY - Neon Obsessions Palette

Affordable Dry Shampoo?
This week I’ve been trying to figure out and treating my hair because sometimes it’s overlooked! I sometimes get oily hair after showering and this is freaking perfect. You have to be careful while applying this or your hair might become clumpy. My first mistake was putting it in too much. You’re supposed to have little in your hair and work the areas you feel need it. The bottle is soo pretty and the powder is so fine! You can barely feel it on your scalp. I wish the nozzle were different because the powder being so light comes out in ribbons. I have quite dark and I didn’t feel like this powder was so that white that it shows up. It blends in perfectly!!
Foundation Routine➖Before & After➖ HG Products
〰️If you need that perfect foundation base, you need to have a solid skincare routine!〰️ Skin type: Dehydrated, Flakey, Some Oiliness Skin concerns: Hyperpigmentation, Fine lines ▪️CLEANSING: This is the most important step because this product ORIGINS - Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash hydrates the dry areas/patches and controls excess oil from producing. Oil control is important over the day so it doesn’t break down your foundation and keeps it as fresh as possible, while the hydration part doesn’t let the foundation sink into fine lines and erase my color correction. ▪️MOISTURIZING: ORIGINS - GinZing Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream This moisturizer works great under foundation because it keeps skin hydrated up to 72-hours, keeping your skin smooth and your base perfect. CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator This product keeps your fine lines under control so your foundation doesn’t look weird. I have a lot of them around my mouth, where over time my foundation breaks down and color correction gets erased. This is really really hydrating, it’s insane! It’s like a layer of water on your skin. GLAMGLOW - POUTMUD Wet Lip Balm Treatment This is a HG product because it’s an amazing product to hydrate lips. It taste good too (I have the red one, and it tastes like mint). This feels like a wet lip stain which is barely there. It instantly gets rid of all flakiness and stays on all day. I’ve almost finished mine. ▪️PRIMER: Always wear The Ordinary - Mineral UV Filters SPF 30 with Antioxidants sunscreen!! I love this one because it’s thick and creamy. It just adds another layer of hydration while protecting my skin from the sun at the same time. So affordable and lasts a long time. Doesn’t matter how much you’ve moisturized your skin, you need a good primer so your foundation has something to grip on. Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer This is so good for my dry skin, instantly disappears fine lines and gets my skin prepped for that perfect foundation. COLOR CORRECTION: I have lot of uneven spots and hyperpigmentation that I like to cover. Which requires a heavy color corrector under my foundation that doesn’t budge. The SEPHORA COLLECTION - Sephora + PANTONE UNIVERSE Correct + Conceal Palette is really great because a little product goes a long way. It comes with an awesome and detailed manual so you can learn and apply color correction where you need it. The concealers are really thick and pigmented which I love. FOUNDATION: HUDA BEAUTY - #FauxFilter Foundation This is so good and pigmented. I need two pea-sized dots to cover all of face and imperfections. Its a little dry (it’s a matte foundation so it’s expected) but all that prep makes this a HG product!

The smell.... is horrible
GLAMGLOW - YOUTHCLEANS Daily Exfoliating Cleanser SKIN TYPE 〰️ Oily Skin PACKGING 〰️ Elegant DOES IT WORK 〰️ Smooth Skin, Brightening CONS 〰️ Fragranced, Double-Cleansing So I’m bringing back an oldie. This is a foaming cleanser that turns from mud-to-foam. Its a cool mud with exfoliating beads. You’re supposed to put it on dry face and then gradually add water to turn into foam. This is for geared towards oily skin because it pulls back all that oil without it being super dry. After using this my skin feels squeaky clean and smooth. It feels like silicone in my pores, smoothing it out. This product only works well if you’re double-cleansing because by itself I feel like is not enough but that’s fine with me because I do that anyway. The only that really puts me off from this product is the smell. It’s so fragranced and overpowered that I keep smelling it even after cleansing. It gives me a breakouts and headaches.

Dark circles be gone!
If you want your dark circles to vanish, this product is for you!!! I am so impressed with how this covers up my dark circles. So easy to apply to under eye area and concealer applies really well over it. Sometimes I use it on its own because it’s so good that I don’t need to add concealer. It’s also great for minimizing redness and covering pimples! This will always be a repurchase for me! Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Vanish

NEW Glossier Skywash
Introducing the new @glossier Skywash Sheer Matte Lid Tints!! Wanted to post these primarily for swatch comparisons and color selection if you have been debating on picking up a shade. 𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐂𝐋𝐀𝐈𝐌𝐄𝐑: I have not tried these on the eyes yet so cannot speak to their performance but based upon first swatches these apply very sheer and have a thin consistency. I found it easy to build up the color with the applicator on my arm. Will be sharing my final thoughts once I fully test them out but until then enjoy some pretty swatches!!💟 **Products gifted by glossier** Glossier. - Skywash sheer matte lid tint

Finally, here are the before-after pictures of my #drunkbreak with @drunkelephant 🙈 (more photos on my IG) I will share my thoughts on each product in another post 🔜. I've been using the Drunk Elephant products since September 2019. I love and I really believe in this brand 😍 ——- The brand: Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that directly benefit your skin’s health. They make “Clean Compatible” skincare. All their products are 100% free of Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Sunscreens, Fragrances/Dyes, SLS. They are vegan 🌱 and cruelty-free 🐰. I love their brightly coloured packaging 🌈 They are not eco-friendly right now 😢because non-plastic airless packaging just doesn’t exist. Airless is absolutely essential for the stability and preservation of their formulas. The best news👀 is that @drunkelephant 🐘have been working hard 💪🏼on custom packaging that will be easily recyclable, all due to launch in January of 2021. ♻️ Also, all of their products launching from this point on, starting with hair and body in April, will be in fully recyclable packaging ‼️. ——— The Results: My overall impression of Drunk Elephant is that they have amazing products🤩! Look at my photos! They are not retouched (except for the first one) and were taken with my Iphone. My favorite photos are the last ones. You can actually see how my skin changed in only one month!😱Bye bye dark spots! My skin looks brighten ✨, more even toned and feels healthier. It is just happier🌸! For sure, I will continue to buy DE 🐘 products. I know some products are priced 💰 a bit too high but you can test out all the essentials by purchasing some kits or the littles. This is how I did!😉. . *This review is based on my own experience with #drunkelephant products. Some products were gifted. I will always recommend that you visit a skin specialist👩🏻⚕️ to advise you before trying any product.
The ordinary | Caffeine Solution
☕️What it is？ The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG ☕️Key Ingredient: Caffeine and Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). Actually, I don't know what it is, but it does work magically in de-puffing!! ☕️My Thought： I always prefer eye cream to serum because the texture of cream makes me feel moisturized, but this serum is really my HG! I dare say, there is no better eye serum than this in removing puffiness. Whether you just woke up or cried because of your boyfriend, whenever you think your eyes are puffy, open this magical little bottle, squeeze out a few drops and apply them to your eyelids and swollen eye bags. Massage it in a soft way until it is absorbed, and you will notice the change in 10 mins. To be honest, this is not a good serum for daily routine because it is not nourishing, but as an occasional tool to deal with puffiness, it is perfect! Plus its price, less than $7!!! I can't find a reason why you wouldn't buy it!! No matter your skin type and budget, as long as you think you may occasionally need some de-puff products, buy it!!
