When the hype is real and worth the coin!
Okay y’all, there’s been a lot of products that have had insane hype and they’ve let us down so badly that our wallets are crying too. Milk makeup has been dropping more skincare products and I’ve been tip toeing around making a lil haul. *WELP* they had a sale, so I bought some stuff! Milk MAKEUP - VEGAN MILK CLEANSER 5/5 it’s a hit, I love it! BUT I only bought the mini version for $15. I will be seeing how long it takes me to run through the mini to decide to pay for the full size ($30) or continue to get the $15 mini. Let’s get into the details of my review. + creamy and thick texture that lathers very quickly. + instantly feels hydrating and very silky on the skin. + skin feels pretty squeaky clean after. + LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. ( I keep using more than I need to *cries*) + soothing and non irritating for sensitive skin. + pretty fun and dang cute packaging. *CLEAN & VEGAN * fragrance free. - pricey. Mini size $15 for 2oz. $30 for 4oz. Overall this is a great sensitive and gentle cleanser that does not stop the skin or cause any irritation. I’ve been using this for a short time and have noticed more balanced moisture, soft and bright skin. I’ll be repurchasing after I’m done with my mini size.
Milk MAKEUP-VEGAN MILK CLEANSER
Textured skin who??
Brb drifting away into my fantasy of perfect skin with no texture. . Okay maybe that’s not realistic, but innbeautyproject’s Down to Tone toner gets me pretty close to a perfect complexion. This is a chemical exfoliating toner that works pretty damn well. After just a few days I noticed a huge difference in my little bumps and dark spots. innbeautyproject has an “Even out complex” in all of their products and from my experience it really works well. I couldn’t find this toner to tag it on here, but here’s my score and some other details about it. InnBeautyProject Down To Tone LIFE CHANGING TONER ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5) + helps minimize texture as a chemical exfoliant. + slight itchy/tingly feeling, but the usual that comes with chemical exfoliation. + beautiful packaging and easy to use pump for cotton round. + pretty quick results + brightens and evens out complexion. + 6-acid blend *phytic acid, malic acid, gluconolactone, lactic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid work together to dissolve the look of rough, dull skin & blackheads, leaving you clear & radiant.* + also includes Niacinimide to help further with texture and pores. No negatives so far! I’ve been using this everyday for almost a month and my skin’s texture is liking so good!
Best night time mask EVER
Hi everyone ☺️ Are you making it through quarantine okay? It’s a little weird, but there’s one thing that has been boosting my mood up and it has been glowing clear skin. If you haven’t heard about YTTP already then please take notes and add this to your cart! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask THE BEST HYDRATING GLOWING MASK EVER. In today’s modern terms, this mask SLAPS. This mask really works. It has and continues to brighten my dark spots and overall tone, help my severely dry skin, and most importantly give me glowing and clear skin! This made such a difference in my skin and gave me such a beautiful glow that my boyfriend started to tell me I was glowing every morning when I woke up. So TYSM youth to the people for this amazing mask. Let me break it down for you: + creamy + buttery luxury RICH texture. + made with Hyaluronic Acid and squalene to boost moisture + vitamin c to firm and brighten skin + maqui, a dense fruit, fights against free radicals and skin stressors. + smells really good (IMO) + a little goes a long way. + sustainable packaging. + gives you glowing, even, clear skin. * PRO TIP apply it to your severely dry hands and thank me laterrrr. My only down side is that this mask is so rich that I don’t need a lot and it’s hard to finish, but is that really a bad thing? You get your moneys worth. - it takes some time to absorb into the skin, but that’s why I don’t over do it with how much I apply. Also on the negative, but not so negative is the PRICE $48.... yes it hurts my bank account thinking about it, but it is very worth it. If you read my whole review, thank you AND IF U JUST SKIPPED 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Buy this if u want glowing skin and less pimples.
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask
Cloud paint never fails!
Hi everyone! It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here and THANK U to all the new followers! Let’s talk about Glossier. I’ve been skeptical about a lot of their products and I’ve been unlucky enough to get a lot of faulty products too, BUT one thing I do love is CLOUD PAINT *heart eyes* Glossier. - Cloud Paint Gel/cream texture blush to add a gorgeous flush. + easy to work with + buildable pigmentation + little goes a long way + apply with fingers, brush, or sponge + range of shades for all styles and skin tones - cheap packaging - a lot can squeeze out of the tube if you aren’t gentle. If there’s one Glossier product that I will fully stand by, it’s definitely Cloud Paint 🥰
Worth the coin!
WOW OBSESSED WITH THIS! TATCHA - THE SERUM STICK This was a big spend for a serum and I’m glad I bought it. I have been using this for about a month, maybe even longer? Probably longer.. lol ANYWAY, it clearly works and I use it everyday. I love this because I’m lazy AF and this is a solid serum. + hydrating - this got rid of my rough dry skin on my nose after having a cold. You know that annoying skin irritation after using way too many tissues. + easy to travel with - love to throw this in my purse or makeup bag for on the go or trips. + touch up makeup + loaded with squalene, Japanese lemon balm, and hyaluronic acid. Application is super simple, just glide it across your face or the areas you’d like. There can be a bit of a tug on direct dry skin. I avoid any tug by applying right after a toner or facial spray! I use this mostly for my under eyes. It fits perfect under the eyes and YALL it’s really doing the most. My under eyes are brighter, smoother, and at this point look like they are turning up a bit. Quick summary, this is great for a lazy skin care gal and it’s super hydrating and the best for under eyes!

Freck Beauty Cheek Slime in Cuffed
Freck BEAUTY - CHEEKSLIME LIP + CHEEK TINT WITH PLANT COLLAGEN Idk why I didn’t think to use flash on these review pictures until a ton of reviews in 😂 I was lucky during the COVID-19 boredom and found an urban outfitters gift card in my room during their big St. Patrick’s Day sale. I wasn’t sure if I would have bought this otherwise, because I have a ton of cream blush and didn’t need another. But the name cheek slime intrigued me! This is a very same vibe to the Glossier Cloud Paints but this shade is a bit more peachy than Dusk is, plus you get a ton more product. I really like this, it’s very pigmented but is a wash of color that is easy to blend out. The color stays on throughout the day and looks sort of like a nice sunburnt color. This comes in two shades, but it’s basically a darker version of this lighter shade that I bought. So far so good and I really like these! If they came out with more colors I’d buy them for sure. It says it’s a lip and cheek tint but this is too pale for my lips so I’ll stick to the cheeks.

Can’t stop using this blush 🍑
Urban Outfitters gifted me the Freck BEAUTY - CHEEKSLIME LIP + CHEEK TINT WITH PLANT COLLAGEN in the shade Cuffed and omg, I can’t stop using it! You would have to rip this off my cold, death hands because it’s just too good. It definitely reminds me of Glossier’s cloud paint in texture and wear time, and they’re in about the same price range I believe so not really a ‘dupe’ but just a similar product by a similar brand. The shade cuffed is a warm, peachy shade that o really love on my skin tone. It’s formulated with plant collagen to help skin look plump and healthy and blends so well! It’s easy to accidentally over apply it since it’s also very pigmented so I like just doing a small dot on each cheek and blending it in with a brush or sponge. Overall I think it’s a beautiful product and I definitely recommend it ✨

Yes or next?
Glossier. - Wowder Brush has a great shine killer ability and, what some would consider, a great mesh between the powder and the lid so you don’t waste product. But I feel like I have to really work to get any product on the brush. Glossier. - Wowder Brush is amazing. Great size and shape for contour and blending out. I did try it for the powder originally and couldn’t get into it but had watched a tutorial where they recommended the brush for the contour and I loved it. Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint this is exactly the kind of foundation I love, sheer and buildable. Very light coverage and breathable. But it might be a little too sheer. Not a large shade range either. Best blended out with a flat top brush or your fingers, sponges will soak it up. (Except the Juno sponge, as long as it’s dry) Glossier. - Stretch Concealer the same with the foundation, not a large shade range. I wish I hadn’t gone for my highlight color when getting the concealer but overall, I love it. Best blended out with a finger but I’ve been using the Juno sponge and it blends out perfectly without removing the product.

Dr. Jart Cicapair Line
I got this kit as an experiment and though i haven’t tried most of these, the Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF30 is ~amazing~. it really soothes redness and not only that, you can literally see the redness go down right in front of you- it’s literally magic! it has a medicinal scent, but i personally love it. if there is anything you want to try from this line, try this one!

How has your week been so far? Here are some mini reviews of the products I have been using A LOT lately. They include: First Aid Beauty 𝐓𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐢𝐧𝐭. I’ve been mixing the two latest shades available. The lightest is currently too pale and the next shade up is too dark. Mixing them has been matching my skin tone perfectly and I LOVE the way they look and feel! ▫️ . First Aid Beauty 𝐀𝐯𝐨𝐜𝐚𝐝𝐨 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐫 ▫️ . First Aid Beauty 𝐔𝐥𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐑𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐫 𝐓𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐏𝐅. I have the lightest shade of this and it’s unfortunately orange on my skin so I cannot wear it by itself. It’s good to wear under a full coverage foundation, though! I would recommend swatching their tints before you buy!▫️ . Ere Perez 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐄𝐲𝐞 𝐏𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞. The neutral tones in the palette go good with my green eyes. I usually go for a barely noticeable eyeshadow look and don’t always have time to do it. I am a huge fan of small, compact eye shadow palettes that conveniently fit into a bag! ▫️ . Ere Perez 𝐐𝐮𝐢𝐧𝐨𝐚 𝐖𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐅𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 ▫️ . Sand And Sky 𝐀𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐂𝐥𝐚𝐲 𝐏𝐨𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐤. This mask is a summer go-to because it works well in congested areas that get even more congested in the hot weather. I like to use it on my t-zone and chin. It really makes a difference for me so I try to use it at least twice a week. ▫️ . Kopari Beauty 𝐂𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐮𝐭 𝐃𝐞𝐨𝐝𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭. This deodorant has easily become my favorite even though it didn’t work for me at first. My body took what it seemed like a very long time to adjust to using natural deodorants. Finally I can only rely natural deodorants. I apply this one twice a day and stay odor free! Also, the scent of this is the same as their body milk and scrub... I’m kind of obsessed! ▫️ . GLAMGLOW 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐲𝐦𝐮𝐝 𝐇𝐲𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐤. This has been my absolute favorite sleeping mask for two years now. I love wearing it to bed after using a detoxifying mask because my skin usually needs to recover. Oh, and of course, the scent is out of this world! ▫️ . GLAMGLOW 𝐆𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐌𝐞𝐠𝐚 𝐈𝐥𝐥𝐮𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 𝐍𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐆𝐥𝐨𝐰 ▫️
