BEST IN DRUGSTORE- Foundation
COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation in 550 light/medium WHAT IS IT? Dewy foundation PRODUCT TARGET CONCERNS: All skin types. TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Comes in 14 colors. Liquid formula. Light coverage. OVERALL THOUGHTS: Fist time I saw this foundation was on my favorite YouTuber’s ( Madison Miller) channel. I immediately thought that this sounds like my kind of foundation. And I must say I wasn’t disappointed. It has lightweight, liquid texture, light coverage, blends perfectly into my skin and doesn’t feel like you have anything on. It doesn’t exaggerate dry spots, facial hair or lines. It gives just the right amount of coverage and has natural looking dewy finish. Beautiful product, I’m so glad I got it. WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love it because of its lightweight, watery texture and glowy finish. Only thing I kinda don’t know if I like or not is the scent. It smells to me like roasted coconut. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes. It’s amazing drugstore foundation. IS IT WORTH IT? 1 oz / 30ml / $11.99 Great price but you can get it cheaper with coupons at ULTA (20% or $3.50 of $15) or Bed,Bath & Beyond (20% of or $10 off $30)

CHARLOTTE TILBURY - Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk
CHARLOTTE TILBURY - Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk (Original) WHAT IS IT? Lip liner TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Waterproof, velvety formula. Nude pink color. OVERALL THOUGHTS: I was always wondering about the hype around this lip liner. This mini version came in a Holiday set with Pillow Talk lipstick. I must say THE HYPE IS REAL, PEOPLE. This is without no doubt the best lipliner I’ve ever owned. Smooth, easy, precise application. Perfect my-lips-but-better color that lasts for hours. Because of its universal color it can be combined with many different colored lip products. I’m so impressed. Seriously if I would loose all my lipliners this is the only one I would repurchase. Amazing AMAZING product!! WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love the formula because it’s creamy but not overly creamy that it just feels waxy. It lasts for hours, you can eat and drink and it won’t budge. Perfect color for my complexion (light to light-medium). Can be worn with or without additional lip product. It feels velvety, it’s matte but not drying. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? 100% YES. It’s a must for any nude lip lover. IS IT WORTH IT? 1.2 g / $22 It’s pricey but sooo worth it. If I lost/run out of my current mini I would repurchase it immediately even for a the full price.

FAVORITE BLUSH - Florence by Mills
FLORENCE BY MILLS Cheek Me Later Cream Blush in ZEN Z WHAT IS IT? Cream blush TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Cream-to-powder formula. Comes in 6 colors. OVERALL THOUGHTS: First I was drawn to this brand because of it’s cute packaging. I swatches the blushes and was impressed by their pigmentation a creaminess. I’m so glad I picked one up. I love cream m-to-powder blushes but sometimes they are hard to blend as they dry down very quick. Thankfully with this one it’s not the case. It blends beautifully and stays put. For monochromatic look use it also on your lips. That’s my favorite way to wear it. WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love it because the color is beautiful, the finish is natural and it’s easy to work with. Also the packaging is very cute. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes!! I know it’s targeted for younger audience but if you love cream blushes DO give it a try. You won’t be disappointed. IS IT WORTH IT? 0.19 oz / $14 Little pricier for drugstore makeup but as it’s available in ULTA you can always use coupons or wait for the 20% promotion. It’s definitely worth with the 20% off.

FAVORITE BLUSH - Chanel
CHANEL JOUES CONTRASTE in 80 Jersey WHAT IS IT? Baked blush TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: It’s a radiant blush so it has very tiny sparkles in it. Nude color. Very light and gentle rose scent. OVERALL THOUGHTS: If you ask me to choose only one blush brand to use for the rest of my life I would definitely go with Chanel. In a heartbeat!! Their blushes are the absolute best! The baked formula creates beautiful soft, fine texture. This particulate shade is my favorite as it is the perfect chameleon shade that can be worn with any eye or lip look. It’s pigmented but the color itself is very subtle so it’s very hard to go overboard with it. It’s perfect for those who are just starting with their makeup or those who love subtle looks. I love it, it’s sooo beautiful!! WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love the subtle yet buildable color and the softness of the formula. The packaging is also very sturdy I traveled with this blush several times and nothing ever happened to it. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes, yes, yes. These blushes are phenomenal. IS IT WORTH IT? 0.21 oz / $45 It is definitely pricey but this blush will last you years so it’s well worth it.

FAVORITE BLUSH - Kaja Beauty
KAJA BEAUTY - Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush in 01 COY WHAT IS IT? Cushion blush TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Liquid blush in a cushion. OVERALL THOUGHTS: Ok, this blush is simply adorable. Yes, it’s bulky. Yes, the little applicator is not usable for anything other than cute Instagram picture (the applicator is shaped as heart so when you pressed the applicator into the cushion and than onto your cheeks, it leaves cute hearts on them) but I still love it. The liquid formula is sheer but buildable and dries fast so make sure you blend blend BLEND!! It looks very natural and gives your cheeks nice flush. WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love the product itself. The packaging is little bulky. I would love it even more if it was just the cushion without the heart applicator. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes, especially if you love K-Beauty and cute makeup ... then this is a must. IS IT WORTH IT? 0.17 oz / 5ml / $24 This is not the cheapest nor the most expensive blush in Sephora. I think the price is reasonable but you can still wait for next Sephora sale to save some bucks. While I love this blush I give it 4 stars because while I love the cute packaging it is unnecessarily bulky and I wish it came with an option to remove the heart applicator and make it smaller and more practical.

Acne’s Worst Nightmare
I wanted to share a product I’m so thankful for. #Apassioni is a retinol that has been working well for me to keep my skin flat and soft! It’s helping clean up my scarring and prevent acne and will hopefully keep me looking youthful by preventing wrinkles. I love the smell of this stuff so much so I actually get so excited when I get to use it! ⠀ ⠀ The packaging is a little annoying, but if you make sure to only squeeze from the top you should be good. You only need a pea size amount for the whole face and it’s best used with lots of moisture after as your skin can dry out from the cell regeneration. Retinol works from the deeper layers up so its always a process to see results! I’m hoping my skin keeps getting more and more clear the longer I use this. ⠀ ⠀ I suggest starting out slow with 1-2x a week and then increase to every other day. I am using #tlcFramboos for surface exfoliation in rotation with this. It’s what really works on my acne which I can’t seem to shake. DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream
