Tatcha?! OR Drunk Elephant?!
I don't know if you guys will be interested in face cream comparison. I recently just finished a Drunk Elephant cream, protein polypeptide cream, and want to give a comparison with one I used before, Tatcha, the water cream. They are both $68/50ml, and I hope this post can help you if you are hesitating which one to buy. Tatcha: Texture: watery, lightweight Most of the ingredients are botanical. The main ingredients, rice ferment filtrate and hadasei-3. The first one is SK2's main ingredient, and the other one is La Mer treatment lotion's. It can help calm down irritated skin and give it a cooling feeling. I also noticed it brightened my skin after using it for a couple of weeks. I think it is suitable for all skin types, especially oily skin, since it super lightweight that won't cause any burden to the skin. Drunk Elephant: Texture: creamy I love the antioxidant ingredients inside of this, such as sclerocarya birrea seed oil, which is also the symbol of DE products. Also, the peptide is used for anti-aging. Must to mention that the package is fully sealed to prevent contamination. Drunk Elephant's packages never fail me. The cream is super hydrating that I think dry skin will love it, especially during winter. But need to notice that the cream should be used before facial oil to ensure your skin absorbs polypeptide without barriers. Also, stay away from this cream or any other products that contain polypeptide if you have rosacea! Be cautious with this if you are pregnant, it ensures yet if palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and tripeptide-1 is safe for pregnant women. In short, if you have a dry-skin, the drunk elephant is there for you. But if you have oily skin, tatcha would be your fav. Need to be cautious when using DE cream since it contains protini polypeptide.
Long-wearing Lipstick? 💄
Who doesn’t appreciate a long wearing lipstick? Well this HUDA BEAUTY - Demi Matte & Cream Lip Set in shades Sheikha and Trophy Wife is definitely a contender. As you can see from the picture for an almost nine hour work day, this lipstick held on pretty good with no touch ups. Usually I touch up my lip color after eating lunch but today I decided to let it be to be as authentic as I can for the purpose of this review. I used the lip liner and matte shade of Trophy Wife from the set. For reference, I have oily combo skin and light to medium skin with pink undertone. I bought this set back in the summer because I loved the kit and it was a great opportunity to try Huda Beauty products without having to drop lots of money. The set retails for $25.00 and has a full size lip liner and two mini lip products. The matte lippie applies smoothly and even though it’s matte it does not feel drying on the lips or cracks. As with most lippies they begin to wear away in the inner corners of the lips because of normal talking, eating, and drinking. Typically, I would reapply a new coat of lipstick to make it all even so on a normal day this would not bother me. It’s not horrible wear but I do understand that everyone wants a super enduring lip shade. I love the way this color looks and this set comes in various colors i.e nude or vampy lip shades. If you have tried this lip set, let me know your thoughts! 💗

This pair is my true destiny! 💙💚🧡
If you let me pick three of my favorite DE products, it would be - Vit C serum🧡, B Hydra serum💙, and Protini Polypeptide cream 💚. These three products are used in my AM routine every day. B-hydra and C-firma is a good night & day serum pair, with polypeptide cream to maximize their effect. B-hydra has pro-vitamin B5 humectant which attracts and boosts moisture of skin, plus pineapple ceramide that helps visibly improve skin tone and texture. C-firma is a cruelty-free serum which could give you a more youthful-looking skin! Believe me, just try mixing them together and make your own skincare smoothies! Be paired with the polypeptide cream, which it's extremely moisturizing, soothing and calming, definitely 1+1>2 ! Free of silicones, DE's products will bring you unexpected amazing results when mixed! After adding these three products into my daily routine, my skin gets really smoother and soft like baby! My husband can't help pinching my face after my first trial of the three. I definitely think they're like three besties and definitely my most ideal serums and moisturizer!
