I love this stuff! It may or may not be replacing my holy grail isntree hyaluronic acid toner 👀 (at least during these colder months) I’ve already repurchased this 4 times. 1 for my gf 1 for both of my sisters and 1 for me!! I see this product being a constant in my routine. Like all hyaluronic acid products, this is on the watery side. The texture is pretty thin, falling somewhere in between the isntree toner and hadalabo gokujyun lotion. It’s fast absorbing and does a really good job of hydrating the skin without being sticky. I’d definitely recommend this to everyone regardless of skin type. THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum

Pixi glow mud mask is a great efficient and cost effective mask. It’s not life changing but it does exactly what it’s meant to and at a reasonable price. It helps decongest the skin by clearing pores and targeting oil and blackheads. My skin feels refreshed after using and I love that it doesn’t dry out my skin like a lot of mud masks tend to. pixi - Glow Mud Mask

Nyx Lip Liner in Cabaret
I don’t wear red lip products often but when I do it’s this product. It’s the perfect shade of red for my skin tone and glides on smoothly. I’ve tried other lip liners that accentuate the lines on my lips and make it look like I’ve gone without drinking any fluids for days 😬 Nyx on the other hand has effective and affordable lip liners and I love them for it! I definitely recommend nyx if you’re looking for the perfect lip liner! I’ve reviewed the Inglot eyeliner and Buxom mascara in previous posts. I love both of these products and wear them frequently. They’re my go-tos! NYX - Slim Lip Pencil [FiveStars] BUXOM - Lash Waterproof Volumizing Mascara INGLOT - AMC Eyeliner Gel

I came across this product at tjmaxx at 4 for $12.99!! I thought it was such a good deal so I picked them up. The only thing I regret is not buying more of these. I really enjoyed using this mask it was fun and effective. It’s a 2-in-1 product with a swab on one end and a sheet mask on the other. The swab is soaked in lactic and glygolic acid to exfoliate skin and give you that glow. It glides over the skin with ease. The sheet mask works to deeply hydrate and nourish your skin. Truly a great pairing. I like how easy this was to use. The swab is very convenient and user-friendly while the sheet mask is drenched in enough product to cover your body from head to toe twice over! My girlfriend was having issues with flaky skin so we threw this mask on and the next day her skin was doing a lot better. I’m not sure how easy it is to get your hands on these but if you can find them for a great price I definitely recommend checking them out. Murad - Hydro-Glow Aqua Peel

So bad it hurts! 😫
I’d rather get coal than this urban decay vice liquid lipstick. This lipstick is the worst thing that’s ever happened to me! I personally really like the vice bullet lipstick formula and was excited when the liquid lipstick came out. 1993 was MY color but then they revamped the lipstick line and changed the color so I was hoping the liquid lipstick would be closer to the original color. Not only was it pinker, but it was also thick and powdery. Initially things were fine. The application went smoothly but within minutes the lipstick dried to an uncomfortable matte finish. The lipstick felt thick like it was caked on even though I’d only used a light layer. It soon became streaky and flaky. I hadn’t even worn the lipstick for 30 minutes and it had already began to crumble just like all hopes and dreams I had of this being a good product. Bottom line these suck so don’t even bother. You deserve better than this. -5/5 please don’t do this to yourself URBAN DECAY - Vice Lipstick

Supergoop Glow Stick!
Supergoop! - Glow Stick SPF 50 My favorite spf to reapply on my décolletage! Glow Stick is so easy to apply (and completely spreadable, so no weird tan lines). It really adds this nice, glistening sheen to your skin that catches the light. Sometimes on no make up days, I’ll use this as a very natural highlighter but generally I don’t wear it on my face since it doesn’t wear well under make up— oily skin problems am I right? Despite that, I’ll still give this 5/5 stars because I ALWAYS have it in my purse!

Hi! I also enjoy doing makeup and love sharing tips and tricks I’ve learned. I often get asked what brow products I use and people are surprised when I tell them black eyeshadow and hair gel 🤓 (yes you read that correctly) I haven’t found a good brow gel to hold my brows, so I use hair gel.

Get me coal instead of this!
SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask I’d rather get coal than this Summer Fridays mask! This mask is supposed to brighten and nourish. It’s recommended for all skin types except sensitive and is supposed to help with dryness, dark spots and fine lines, which I saw none of! It was awful on my skin. It irritated my skin like crazy and leaves a thick greasy film afterwards. The weird part is that I don’t have sensitive at all and I tried it multiple times to see if my skin would react the same and it did. After all, I paid $52 for it which is quite a high price for a mask in my opinion, specially one that doesn’t work. Save your money folks! Not worth it! Had to try and save my skin for days after using this mask.... The texture is beautiful, however. it’s a thick gel with beautiful red and orange petals inside. This doesn’t justify anything at all but at least it’s photo worthy. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Even if it contains vitamin c, natural oils and rose powder this isn’t a product I would ever recommend... I didn’t like this at all. 100% rather get coal than this mask, Santa!

Steer clear of this new primer serum
smashbox - The Mindful 5 Nourishing Face Primer Serum I’d rather get coal than this Smashbox Primer Serum. It claims to help reduce irritation and redness as well as moisturizing and balancing the skin. However, it feels very dry on the skin and it smells terrible. When you first put it on, it smells like alcohol and as it starts to dry it smells like sushi. It has a thick liquid texture that dries down quickly. The first few ingredients are disappointing but there are some really nice ingredients in the middle like hemp seed oil, sodium hyaluronate, green tea and more. Unfortunately, it is too dry on my dry skin so MAYBE someone with normal or oily skin would enjoy this. I passed it on to my mom because I could not see myself reaching for this again. This product is $42 but I wouldn’t pay $10 for it. This was sent to me by influenster.

My FAVORITE lip scrub 😍
✨I am CRAZY about the sugar lip polish from fresh!! It is a HYDRATING lip scrub that gently buffs and smooths for the softest lips. ✨The scrub contains brown sugar crystals, shea butter, and jojoba oil. The sugar crystals dissolve as you scrub which makes it easy to clean the lips afterwards. The Shea butter and jojoba oil help nourish and enrich the skin. ✨ I have used many lip scrubs and found that they dry out the lips. But the fresh lip scrub is the first one that I have used that not only exfoliates but also hydrates the lips! After scrubbing, it feels as if I had applied some type of lip balm on my lips! ✨ I like to use the lip scrub once a week especially in the winter when my lips get chapped and dry most often. Although it does hydrate, I also apply a lip balm afterwards for extra moisture overnight. ✨The scrub retail for $24 at Sephora which is not too bad because only a little is used at a time, and therefore the product lasts forever! I would definitely purchase this 100 times again and recommend this to anyone looking for a hydrating scrub!

💦great toner for sensitive skin💦
I wasn’t able to find any PCA skin products to tag them, but I fell in love with the brand as a whole the minute I started using their products. Their philosophy is to improve people’s lives through advanced professional skincare treatments, clinical education, & superior results.✨ This toner has some of the best & least amount of ingredients I have ever used. It’s formulated without synthetic dyes, fragrances or parabens. PCA Skin also does not perform or condone animal testing of any kind❣️ This toner is supposed to clear debris while botanical extracts soften & soothe the skin. Which I think it does just that! She’s got lactic & citric acids as well as the botanical extracts to help calm the skin & reduce the appearance of pores. To use: after cleansing, moisten a cotton pad (I honestly put it right into my clean hands & pat onto my face, I don’t want to waste any product clearly by the tiny amount in the texture shot😂) and apply a small amount of the toner all over your neck & face. It says to then follow with the appropriate serums & broad spectrum SPF during the day, moisturizer in the evening. The first ingredients are water, lactic acid, citric acid, glycerin, & then followed by the rest of the botanical extracts, I couldn’t believe it! This works great & I would recommend for any skin type, but it works especially well for my combination/oily skin type!✨
