Mini Mascara Reviews!
Mascara mini reviews! I love a good fluffy, natural bristled wand that gives good volume. The Nars Climax Mascara and Milk Kush mascara definitely both aim for that. So I thought I would compare these mini’s with mini reviews. The NARS - Climax Mascara

September Empties: mini edition!
Today I’m doing mini Monday a little different! I used up a ton of products in the month of September, including lots of mini’s while traveling. So today I’m featuring my thoughts on the mini’s I finished. Stay tuned for my full size empties tomorrow! ✨ . . 🤷🏽♀️ voir - Sunrise Rituals: Signature Shampoo voir - Sunset Rituals: Signature Conditioner : Nice but I have long hair and it’s really hard to tell my thoughts with a tiny packet! But it did smell amazing. . 👎🏼 ORIGINS - High-Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral-Enriched Oil-Free Renewal Cream : this is a nice thick moisturizer for night time. But I can’t get past the smell. It reminds me of some bad fruity drink I had in college 😂😬 . 👎🏼Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream : this is just way too light weight and not moisturizing enough for my skin type. You might like this if you’re oily. . ❤️ philosophy - Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Shower, Bath & Shave Gel : yess this is the lemon custard and it smells soo good! . 👎🏼 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 : this is SO greasy I can’t stand it. . 🤷🏽♀️ DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream : I don’t get the hype behind this. It’s also too greasy for me. And I’m not supporting DE right now. . 🤷🏽♀️ Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm : I like it! But not extremely long lasting. It did melt and get messy though. Would maybe repurchase on sale. . 🤷🏽♀️ NARS - Climax Mascara : nice for volume but it dried out quickly and flaked a lot. . ❤️ CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm : yes really enjoyed this. Would get on sale. Probably will save this little tub to put some balm from my full sizes in for future travel! . ❤️ REDKEN - One United Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray : yes a solid leave in conditioner!
Zoom Meeting Look!
As one of the only women in a lot of my workplace meetings, I always want to make sure I look very presentable and professional (from the waist up 🤣) in addition to having my materials prepared. It’s just something that helps me feel like I’m 100% on my game! This is a similar look I would do for if and when work is ever normal and I had an important meeting as well. Your appearance is the way you present yourself to the world, and doing my makeup nicely is the way I like to be presented, though it is by no means necessary to be a professional woman! Makeup is just my way to be creative with my appearance. It’s fun! tarte - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Too Faced - White Peach Eye Shadow Palette SEPHORA COLLECTION - Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner NARS - Climax Mascara SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick tarte - Sea H2O Lip Gloss

10-minute Makeup Routine
When I only have 10 mins to do my makeup bc I’m running late or whatever, my goals are to brighten up my face and add a charm to it. Not that it’s not already charming on its own, but you know how it is running on lil sleep 🤪 On these days, I prefer not to go anywhere near foundation as I find that it can be quite messy to work with in a short amount of time and sometimes brings out my imperfections a lil too much. So to glow I used the ĀETHER BEAUTY - Crystal Charged Cheek Palette on both my eyes (light pink “Aphrodisiac”), as a highlighter (“Pure Love”) on my cheeks and nose & as blush (reddish pink “Divinity”). I really like this formula as it’s non chalky and has good hold. I even used the sample I have from ĀETHER BEAUTY - Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz in the corners of my eyes. It stays on great, especially when used on a base like SAPPHO - New Paradigm Concealer in Caramel. I also used elate - LipColour Pencil to give my eyes that metallic look. As for the lips, I prepped them with BITE - Agave+ Daytime Vegan Lip Balm which has a nice, creamy texture but I dislike the scent! And then I topped my lips with the new BITE - Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss on Cinnamon Twist, which is a nice lipgloss made with cinnamon oil to plump the lips. It comes out of a twisted tip which can be cleaned after each use, which is great for times like this when you wouldn’t want to contaminate your makeup! I finished this look off with Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara that most of us probably got from Sephora for our birthday 🎂 and Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Fiber Brow Gel to shape my eyebrows. I gave it a 4 star because I feel sometimes it wipes off on area of my face I wish it wouldn’t.
tiktok makeup hack- better than falsies
So I saw this hack on tiktok (the audio is not mine!) and I wanted to try it. I usually just do 2-3 coats of mascara applied normally (root to tip) when I wear mascara, but thought I could try this instead. All you’ll need is your favorite mascara. I don’t currently own my favorite mascara, but I’m trying to use this one up before it expires. In the video I use the Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara . So you start with one coat on the ends of your lashes, and then do one coat starting at the middle and working your way through the tips. The last coat starts at the root and works all the way down to the tip! I think this made my lashes more even and fuller than normal, and I will definitely continue to do this!

Milk Makeup Lash + Brow Serum
Here is a short clip of me applying the Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Growhouse Lash + Brow Serum to my lashes. For some reason I was not able to post the pictures and the video at the same time. So here I am posting is separately.

Best mascara ever!
ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara If you like long, natural looking lashes like me, this is the perfect mascara! The double sided wand helps apply product and separates your lashes for a natural finish. It’s long wearing and I’ve never had a problem with smudging, which is the number one thing I look out for in mascaras. It’s very comparable to Glossier’s Lash Stick, but at more of an affordable price + you get more usage. It’s a great, clean formula and a holy grail product!

No more straight lashes, get falsies from a tube
Cle de Peau Beaute Perfect Lash Mascara is my favorite mascara of all time! I love it because it holds the curl (something very important for straight eyelashes). The formula is super lightweight and buildable, so it won’t weigh down lashes and get rid of the curl. Not only does it lengthen, but it also volumizes and separates the lash. The formula is waterproof and super long-wearing. I recommend removing it with the Cle de Peau Beaute Eye and Lip Makeup Remover. It’s oil based, which is key to breaking down and taking off the mascara. The price point is a bit high ($55.00), but to me, it’s worth it to be able to get a false lash look from a tube of mascara. I rate this product 5 out of 5 because it ticks off all the boxes for elevating my eyelash game. clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Perfect Lash Mascara

its not the same kush🌿💦
🌿 have you tried Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara , which is an amazing mascara that adds length and volume to even my short straight lashes? Well this is it’s bastard cousin, Kush Waterproof 💦 I don’t know what happened in between these two, but whatever made Kush amazing is missing or destroyed by the waterproofing agents in Kush Waterproof. It doesnt grip my lashes the same or add as much length/curl/volume. 💦 is it waterproof? eh... it is more waterproof than kush, but it still flakes off. definitely not the staying power of Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

One Makeup Product I Cannot Live Without
💜 Product: The Urban Decay Brow Endowed in Brown Sugar 💜 What is it? A double sided tinted brow gel and primer. The primer gives my brows texture and volume while holding them in place and the tinted gel gives shape, definition, and fills in any patchiness. It’s pigmented enough that it can fill in brow where there is none but not so pigmented that it appears harsh or unnatural. 💜 Why I love it: I’ve always been terrible at doing my brows. They’re kind of weird shape and usually tinted brow gel just emphasizes that and pomades or pencils are too harsh for me or don’t stay in place. This stuff makes my brows look AMAZING and it takes about 60 seconds and very minimal effort and it stays ALL DAY. It’s natural enough that if I’m not wearing any other makeup on my face it still looks natural and not out of place but it’s pigmented enough to fill in patches and define my arch. I like to start with the primer and use that to fluff my brows up then I go in with the tinted gel starting on the arch then moving along to the tail where I want the most product and definition. I end on the front of my brows using whatever product is left on the brush and that’s it!
