SUMMER VIBES / BEACH
Quickly want to talk about some products I am loving this summer! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀🌊 @theisleofparadise Self Tanning Drops in Light: So throughout the year, I always wear sunscreen, especially now during the summer months. But I use a higher SPF on my face compared to my body because I really like getting dark in the summer. But since I have acne prone skin, I make sure to keep my face as safe possible from the UV rays! Therefore my face is never as dark as my body and I need something to help even that out. So far I am loving this product, I mix 4 drops in with my moisturizer and the next morning, I wake up with such a beautiful glow! I will definitely re-purchase this but once I finish this the next brand I want to try is Tan Luxe before I do! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 🌊 @soldejaneiro Bum Bum Cream & Coco Cabana Cream: Now I know most of you love the smell of the Bum Bum Cream over Coco Cabana, but I’m the opposite way around haha. I love the smell of both, but something about Coco Cabana, it’s AMAZING! I love the smell, the texture, how well it works, just everything! I also love the mini size, makes it super easy to carry with me to the beach and the Lord knows I need something to moisturize once I get out of the ocean lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀🌊 @supergoop Glow Screen: I normally wouldn’t wear this to the beach, I would wear this more so If I’m running out on a few errands or meeting up with my friends for drinks/food If I don’t want to wear makeup! This already gives a beautiful glow and when I’m at the beach, I sweat a lot and I’m in the ocean most of the time (bc I’m a fish lol) so it’s not necessary for beach days! But this is one product that I am loving so far this summer! I love the way it makes my skin look and feel. 🤍 What’s your favorite product to use during the summer months?
🥥Coconut Heaven in a Jar
🥥SOL DE JANEIRO~Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Claims~ That it instantly hydrates your skin leaving it soft, smooth and firmer. Also leaves your skin with a soft shimmer. 📦 Packaging~ I love the bright yellow color & easy to store recyclable jar. 🔑 Key ingredients~ ￼Coconut Oil~ Helps soften & moisture your skin. ￼Guarana~Supports circulation, smooths skin ￼Açaí~Super fruit that helps keep skin looking & feeling young. ￼Cupuacu Butter~ Helps lock in moisture & support skins natural elasticity 🥥Texture/Smell~ This formula is thick & creamy, fast absorbing & doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy/sticky. The smell is a strong coconut 🥥 smell & it lasts on your skin all day. It reminds me of laying on the beach using tanning lotion. 💰 Value~ $20.00 for 2.5 ounces mini size & $45.00 for 8.1 ounce jar My opinion~ I got one as a birthday gift from Sephora & was lucky enough to get it again in a subscription box. This is a great summer Lotion. It leaves my skin feeling soft as rose petals, nourished & smelling like a tropical heaven. I didn’t noticed any firming as it claims but I love the smell & the way it leaves my skin feeling. I give this 5/5 ⭐️ and think it has lived up to its hype & highly recommend it for anyone that is looking for a summer lotion & loves the smell of coconuts. SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream 🥥SOL DE JANEIRO-Coco Cabana Body Cream Claims~ Instantly Hydrates your skin & leaves it moistured up to 72 hours after 1st use. 📦 Packaging~ Love the turquoise color & the easy to store recycleable ♻️ jar. 🔑 Key Ingredients~ ￼Coconut Oil~ Helps Soften, Condition & Mostrize the skin. ￼Cupuacu Butter~ Helps lock in moisture & support skins natural elasticity 🥥Texture/Smell~ It’s thin almost like a gel consistency. After applying, it left my skin feeling Tacky/sticky which lasted a while then subsided. The original formula didn’t do this. The coconut smell is not as strong as the bum bum cream & doesn’t linger as long on skin. 💕 Love~ I love that this product is 🌱 Vegan. Also it is Free from Gluten, parabens, phthalates, formaldehydes. 💰 Value~$20.00 for a 2.5 ounce mini & $45.00 for a 8.1 oz jar 🥥My opinion~ This is not the original formula they revamped it. I got the original formula as a Sephora birthday gift & the second in a subscription box. It claims that it leaves your skin hydrated for 72 hours, It did leave my skin super soft but I had to reapply after bout 6 hours to get the full effect. The original version did a much better job of hydrating & leaving your skin feeling nourished & didn’t leave your skin feeling tacky. The original formal was well worth the price but this version is not. I give it 3/5 ⭐️ SOL de Janeiro - Coco Cabana Body Cream With New Coconut Scent and Plush Moisture

EYE POPPING PRODUCTS
I’ve curated these products as the top performers in eye makeup to date. Morphe Eyelid Primer at $10 is fraction of the cost of luxury primers, and it works better than any other primer I’ve used. No creasing, even shadow application. Natasha Denona eyeshadow is pricey, but it is with it to me. The colors and formulas are highly pigmented, blend well, and don’t crease. I’ve slept in this shadow and when I woke up the shadow was looked practically as good as when I put it on. Tarte Tarteist Eyeliner in brown is a great rich brown that applies smoothly and stays well. Finally, my search for a go to natural mascara is over after decades of searching. Ilia’s Limitless Lash Mascara is amazing. It is so lightweight and doesn’t weigh lashes down.
Natasha Denona Mini Palette, Gold VS. Glam, Which one I prefer?
NATASHA DENONA - Gold Palette It has the best eyeshadow base shade I've used so far. It's a natural gray-brown shade that has a more copper tone compared to the MAC Omega eyeshadow shade. It cements on and doesn't slide easily, so you can even do without an eyeshadow primer for eye makeup that lasts all day. I normally use its second dark brown shade as an eyeliner and it works perfectly. I use the gold shimmery shade to highlight eye makeup by building it on. Its main green shade is the shade I use the most. It has a gray tone to it and I normally use it to darken the inner and outer corners of my eyes. As a darker version of the Naked 2 Night Time eyeshadow, the last metallic gray shade is really distinctive. NATASHA DENONA - Mini Glam Eyeshadow Palette Its highlight shade is very shimmery. Its darkest shade is not very smooth or saturated. Its base color is too close to my skin tone and the color payoff isn't great. All the other shades are more of a gray tone and are also boring, so I don't really like them. I prefer the Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette.
Some of my favorites for tackling dry, cracking hands. Only one of these is specifically for hands(the Sol de janeiro hand cream) but they are all miracle workers! I love thick creams like the Weleda and the Sol for daily use. I only need to apply once or twice a day, which I prefer to the constant reapplication throughout the day. Balms are a great supplement if I'm suffering from cracked knuckles or dry cuticles. Farmacy and Ren have been lifesavers this winter. I already raced about them for the face but they are just as good for the hands!
SOL de Janeiro-Brazilian Touch Hand Cream
JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Conspiracy Palette I love this palette. The pigment is out of this world and it’s so versatile. I use the top row for daily needs and then there’s so many options for fun on the middle and bottom row.
JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS-Conspiracy Palette
Favorite Eyeshadow Palette
This is the Jeffree Star x Shane Dawson Conspiracy Palette. It’s an eyeshadow palette that is meant to have high pigment and be versatile enough for day use and night use. I adore this. First of all, the packaging feels so luxurious. It’s heavy and the metal clasps that hold it are really high quality. These shades are unique and really blendable. I love the diversity of the colors here and the palette feels like a work of art. This is also vegan. The top row is great for day to day and the others work for fun occasions and nightwear. Considering the quality of this, I’d say the price is great. They’re releasing more in March! I definitely recommend this to everyone. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Conspiracy Palette
JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS-Conspiracy Palette
Favorite Eyeshadow Palette
Not a skin care product but this makeup palette is so lovely. In the midst of the current situation I have been trying to support more black owned brands. I really love this eye makeup palette. - - Love the fact that this is such a colorful yet so neutral. I can wear a bright of color along with neutrals, and it blends so so well. I think the lasting/staying power of this palette is so nice. It doesn’t seem to crease even during the hot, sweatier months. *chefs kiss* The texture of this palette is really smooth, blendable and has a range of mattes, satin, and shimmery finishes!! Do I recommend? Yes!! Definitely buy it if you’re in the market for a good eye makeup palette 🌟 FENTY BEAUTY - Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette
FENTY BEAUTY-Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette
Jeffree Star Alien Palette 👽✨
Hands down Jeffree Star palettes post Blood Sugar are some of my favorites! I think JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Alien Eyeshadow Palette is my favorite of them all so far. The formula is stunning! The mattes are pigmented and blend very well while the shimmers are some of the most buttery formulas I’ve used. I don’t experience any fallout or kickback. I think the only downside I have is even though the palette is super cute the 3D Alien eyes make it a little hard to store. Other than that I usually have no problems with the palette. The pigment is there. The color selection is there. The whole aesthetic is there. I’d recommend this palette to anyone looking for a more earthy toned look or any Jeffree Star fan.
JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS-Alien Eyeshadow Palette
I still find the smell of the rowse beauty Winter Body Oil hugely relaxing for use. After a bath and hair mask, I like to massage this onto freshly-exfoliated skin before letting it soak in as trot round in a robe and use a sheet mask. Completely natural, vegan-friendly, and nearly plastic-free. Using only oils from some of the world’s hardiest plants, this extremely hydrating oil has a comforting spearmint and rosemary fragrance which I find myself turning to whenever I need to relax. This non-greasy oil also contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant to help ward off free radical damage, and leaves a soft sheen.
