Firm Biotin Beliver
I take biotin on a regular basis for my nails. Suggested by my nail girls, and my upscale "once a year" type salon. I have seen a HUGE difference in my nails, my skin and my hair. Although I only needed my biotin vitamins for thin cracked nails, I'll take all the benefits! This one was voted number #1 by oprah magazine! its vegan, packed with actual biotin. 1333% to be exact. 60 yummiest per bottle for only $25 Is good for ANY hair type. Before and after results on youtube, which are outstanding. I've taken 3 different brands, but after reading up on this brand for $25, I think it's my next choice
💊First Impressions: HUM vitamins & supplements
HUM is a supplement brand with a philosophy & huge product range dedicated to beauty nutrition. Pure, non-GMO, sustainably sourced & gluten-free! They also have all your basic vitamin/mineral needs covered, as well as curated blends for more specific issues. The line up is pretty impressive: over 30 different options for everything from healthy digestion probiotics, to wrinkle reduction & skin-cell protection. Walter Faulstroh & Chris Coleridge founded Hum Nutrition in 2012, after Walter’s personal struggles with acne breakouts led him to prescription medications & topical solutions. nothing worked for him long term, but while working at their previous company, ‘V Water’ (a vitamin/mineral infused beverage company) he was inspired by a coworker after she helped his acne by formulating drinks specifically targeted to treat it. With help a forward-thinking nutritionist from London, Hum nutrition was born. 🙋🏻♀️I would highly recommend taking advantage of your FREE personal nutritionist: 💻I’ve had the best email correspondence with mine thus far... Fast responses & she always addresses my questions or concerns thoughtfully. I’m not going to rate anything just yet, although I did give a 4⭐️rating to the ‘Glow Sweet Glow’ gummies recently when I got a sample from Sephora... but as I said in that review it could really only be a rating on flavor & texture, because taking 1 days worth of vitamins is not how this magic works. But trying those led me to research the brand a bit & on to purchase 8 supplements from them😂 💊I look forward to seeing (& feeling) some results in 4-6 weeks & sharing a full review of each supplement with you! They start you off with 3 recommendations after you take a brief (very easy) quiz. I only picked 2/3 of the ones they chose & added the others I was interested in. You don’t have to do this at all, you can grab most of these at Sephora, or purchase whichever on HumNutrition.com —But there are great price breaks if you sign up: $10 off 15% off of 3 additional 25% off for 3 month plan ( charged 1 month at a time ) 📆 The ones I picked for my arsenal: All prices for 30 day supply 💳 (1 or 2 a day) 🧡HUM - Base Control$10 The multi-vitamin. (Also comes in iron free) Been off my vitamin game for a while, so this was a no-brainer. 💓HUM - Private Party : Supports Vaginal & Urinary Tract Health$25 A probiotic supplement for the ladies. The one that really caught my attention. 🐟HUM - OMG! Omega the Great Fish Oil Supplement$30 One recommended for me. Kind of big. ❤️HUM - Hair Sweet Hair Growth Vegan Gummies$25 Berry. 🌚HUM - Mighty Night Overnight Renewal Supplement$40 To naturally aid sleep/increase cell turnover. 💨HUM - Air Patrol Supports Skin & Lungs with Vitamin C$10 Vitamin C & Calcium for lung health. 🍊HUM - Glow Sweet Glow Skin Hydration Vegan Gummies$25 Tangerine. ☀️HUM - Here Comes The Sun Vitamin D Supplement$12 I don’t get a lot of sun.🧛🏻♀️
PUR X BARBIE LIPSTICK
PÜR - Limited Edition PÜR X Barbie Iconic Lips Semi-Matte Lipstick in shade “ceo” i like this lipstick a lot! the formula is a little dry but nice, the colour is FAR brighter than I am normally comfortable with but it is the perfect bright blue-red to make teeth appear whiter!
Favorite Lip Liner! MAC Lip Liner in Spice
I realllllllly like this lipliner color and texture from MAC Cosmetics (Spice)! I’ve tried drugstore to high end liners but this one is by far my favorite. It has staying power with very little to no feathering and soft enough to wear as a full coverage lip color. Spice is a creamy, warm, red brown. You’ll need a makeup pencil sharpener (not a twist up).

Visual Lip Filler - Draw Fake BIG Lips
I have really thin lips. Literally really really THIN. I have been practiced for so long on creating big lips. Mostly with liners or lip gloss that would visually make my lips look bigger. Recently I just found thick new technique of drawing lips with statin tint, to create fake big lips. It is super easy and I hope you like it. First by drawing a line on your bottom lip to outline the shape that you want your lips to stay. My bottom lip is really thin so I normally go a little bit over outside my own lip line. Then use your gloss to create a vertical line symmetric to your lip bead. On the top of the lip, draw an “x” to set the outline of the cupid. Connect the corner of the lips to the tips of “x” and the bottom with the horizontal lines, fill in the blank to finish the look FOR $6 this lippie is PHENOMENAL! COLOURPOP - ILUVSARAHII X Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip COLOURPOP - Ultra Matte Lip I personally really love these liquid lipsticks! it has a spectacular velvety texture. They all dry completely matte and aren't horribly uncomfortable throughout the day. I also give a little swatch on the back of my hand just to show you what the formula is like. This formula is very much like the kylie cosmetics one i just find that it tends to be more drying on my lips! It kind of feel like the YSL matte gloss but kind of has a more cushiony feel to it. More light weighted but still, very pigmented. The YLS one is kind of more like a dry stain feeling on it after it’s kind of dry down. This literally looks like my lips are made of velvet. Super light weighted. They do have a transfer to them but not like an obnoxious amount. I definitely needed a serious makeup wipe to remove it afterwards. These two colors are just amazing and I can see myself wearing these the most. With lipliner, I think my lip would look even fuller. I really like this series a lot. It kind of give me that K-POP lip wear if you only applied a little in the center and just blotted your lips a little to create that soft ombre lip look. If you are interested in that I will follow up with another post on how to create ombre lips with different types of lipsticks.
COLOURPOP-ILUVSARAHII X Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip
ONLY 1 Product, can be used for Whole Face
Sometimes having too many beauty products lying around can be a burden to those with difficulties making decisions. On days where I need to put on a simple and quick makeup, I just use my beloved lipstick to complete the whole look. Using the same product for the whole face makes the makeup look more complete and coherent. You don’t have to worry about whether everything goes well together because the same product cannot go wrong! I found that using lipsticks for blush is way more natural than powder blush. I especially like to use moisturising lipsticks like the one below since it is easier to blend and give your cheek a very subtle and pretty glow. For a natural non-makeup makeup look, putting a little bit of lipsticks on the eyelids naturally gives life and colour to your face without being too obvious. Product: MAC Brick-O-La $30 Packaging: the packaging is very simple and chic. It looks like a bullet head which I find quite cute, however, the I cannot see the shade of the lipstick, which is the only thing that I don’t like about the packaging. I had to pick out all the lipsticks and look at their labels for the shade colour. Price: 30$ is relatively affordable compared to other high brand makeups.The colour payoff and texture is amazing, so 30 dollars is definitely worth it. Shade: Brick-O-La is in a dried rose shade that is perfect for everyday occasions. It fits nicely with any outfits and any skin tone. It is a very universal shade, so it is my go to shade when I don’t know what to put on. I have a fair neutral skin tone and whenever I put on this lipstick I feel like I look younger, lively and approachable. Texture: The texture is very creamy and moisturising with big colour payoff. I only need to swipe once and the colour is there. However, because it is a moisturising lipstick, it is not very long lasting and tends to rub off easily and stick onto other things. Usage: lips, cheeks, eyes What I use this lipstick for is to dab a few times onto the cheeks and blend it out with a beauty sponge for a natural flushed look. I also like to put a little bit of redness onto the outer part of the eyes, and lastly, complete the whole look with applying it onto my lips to bring life onto my face.
MAC-MAC Matte Lipstick
stila - Stay All Day Sheer Liquid Lipstick color Patina Hi guys! Today I’m gonna talk about the Stila lipsticks, which is amazing colours and a nice matte effect. The most important thing about matte lipstick is the texture in the lips. I feel like most part of the mattte products ,in general, are sticky and thick. This one is not like that at all! It’s about a lipstick very soft that makes a thin layer in the lips giving a full coverage and a velvet texture. It’s nice and lasts all day! It is a pricy lipstick comparing to other brands but it worth! I highly recommend specially dark colours, nudes and red.

8 Hr Lipstick Challenge!
I recently bought a couple Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayons on sale from Sephora ($13). I decided to put true How Rouge! shade to the test during the work day Friday. Swipe through the photos to see how it stood up over eight hours. Almost forgot to mention, I didn’t add liner or any kind of primer or anything! 9:00 am: The color went on easily, smoothly and looked bright and beautiful. It goes on liquid, but dries to more of a satin “stain” in about 10 minutes. I got a lot of compliments on the color during my zoom calls! Noon - I ate lunch and took another picture. The color was still bright and even across my lips. It dulled a little bit from the first photo. 5:00 pm: After eight hours the color still looks good! Pretty bright and even. It faded a bit and became a little annoyingly dry toward the end of the day, but had great staying power. I forgot to mention, I chew gum and drink teas CONSTANTLY during the work day. So, this was a really good test. Overall, I give this four stars 🌟 for a beautiful, easy to use product that has staying power. Only drawback is the drying feeling throughout the day. I think it’s still on sale on Sephora, grab it if you can!
