If I could only have one eyeshadow palette..
MORPHE - 35OM Nature Glow Matte Eyeshadow Palette This palette covers all my needs and is the right amount of pigmentation. I will use some of the shimmery colors as highlight and the browns for contour so it’s quite versatile for me. They are all pressed powders and I have been using this for over a year now. It did not give me any skin problems and it’s worth it for $25. I definitely recommend this brand in general

elf Mineral Infused Face Primer
e.l.f. - Mineral Infused Face Primer This is supposed to be a base to help makeup stick and look natural. It feels like matte lotion if that makes sense. I didn’t see much difference in how my makeup stayed but it seemed more smooth which is why I bought it to cover my pore areas. I like how it doesn’t feel too heavy. I do wish it wasn’t clear bc I never know if I missed an area or not. It didn’t make me breakout so that’s a plus and it was inexpensive so it’s worth it but I would recommend one of their colored primers instead.

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream
Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream This facial cream did its job of moisturizing and was soft. I got this as an extra with a bag I bought but I love it. It’s not too heavy and soaks in without leaving my face greasy either. I’ve only used it for a couple weeks now but it’s amazing and I’ve had no problems with acne or anything. I would recommend this as it’s easy to apply and not too strong smelling.

ELF Instant Lift Brow Pencil (dark brown)
e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil I am in love with this brow pencil. I’ve been using this everyday for maybe a few years now and I like how it comes with a spoolie to blend it out. It does not come out too pigmented as shown in the video and doesn’t run. If you wipe it it would wipe off a bit. It’s only $2 excluding tax and I would highly recommend this. Takes me just a couple minutes to apply

e.l.f. - Length & Volume Waterproof Mascara This waterproof mascara is ok for the price. There wasn’t much difference in length but volume did increase a little bit. The waterproofness is pretty good and doesn’t wash off in water. I like it thus far though I do wish the brush end was longer to get more lashes in one swoop. I would recommend this for those on a budget but not for the best results. I would probably use it again and I like how it doesn’t come out with a bunch of product on it because that makes my lashes clumpy.

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask (Green Tea)
innisfree - My real squeeze mask this mask definitely did it’s job of hydrating. It came with a lot of liquid so I had to squeeze some out otherwise it would drip while wearing it. The texture is like thin fabric and the liquid was thicker than water but less than a gel. I didn’t like the feeling afterwards much, it was tacky/sticky so I washed my face a bit. I would recommend this and it was cheaper than $5 so it’s worth it. I had no problems with breakouts so I like it and my face is mostly soft. My face has been dry so I finally used this after washing my face.

💦e.l.f Hydrating Bubble Mask💦
e.l.f. - Hydrating Bubble Mask About me 🤗 and the product 💦Skin type/skin tone I have combination skin. My t-zone is in the range of normal to oily skin and I have dry skin on my cheeks. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐I also have some freckles across my cheeks and my nose bridge. 💦Product function The product claims to hydrate and nourish the skin while cleansing dirt from the skin and making the skin glow ✨✨ 💦Texture/consistency The product is an opaque gel and the consistency of the gel is simple and smooth. 💦Packaging Like other e.l.f. products, the packaging is simple and pleasing to the eye. It has a plastic clear cap, a wide silver rim, and a light greenish blue hue in the body. After taking off the cap, there’s a white push down mechanism top that when pushed down on both sides, disperses the product from the center. Beauty story 📖 💦Overall experience ( why start) I’ve seen so many bubble masks 🛁and finally decided to try one when I was going through the aisles in Target 🎯 checking out the numerous new products that I have never seen before 👀. I was extremely excited when I picked this product up since I’ve seen many bubble face masks before and they all looked so fun to use. There was this one and a charcoal one and because of my skin type (combination and more dry) I decided to pick the hydrating one 🤔. 💦Verdict ❤️💔 The thing I like about this product is that it foams up almost instantaneously. After applying, the product foams up within seconds into thin fuzzy bubbles. The instructions say to leave the product on for 5-10 min and when I tried to keep it on for more than 5 min I couldn’t. Why? Because it’s too itchy!!! 😳 the bubbles are so tiny and they start to pop after a while, making it super ticklish 🤪. That’s the only thing I did not like about this product. So now when I use it, I only keep it on for around 3 min. After the time was up and I massaged and washed the product off my skin. My skin felt cleansed and soft. 💦Recommend? I would recommend trying the product as a second cleanse since it is very light and it won’t clean off make up or heavy dirt. It can also be used as a light morning cleanse. Even though it is for hydration, I feel like it’s still suitable for all skin types and would recommend for anyone. 💦Worth it? 💰 The product is pretty much just a simple cleanser with a pre-foaming aspect without rubbing it. I would say that there are better formulas than this one that is worth the same amount. So this is only worth it if you never tried a bubble mask before and just want to try it for the experience. 🤷🏻♀️

Sephora Collection Ultra Glow Vitamin C Serum
Early this past summer, I picked up this product on a whim while I was browsing the Sephora store, mostly because it was only $20 and I hadn't seen many Vitamin C serums for that low of a price, so I figured I might as well try it. 🤷🏻♀️ This product, like most vitamin C products, claims to "help increase radiance, improve, and even-out skin tone." Unfortunately, despite using this product consistently for over a month, I noticed... nothing. So little, in fact, that I began to doubt whether this SEPHORA COLLECTION - Ultra Glow Serum: Glow + Strengthen Vitamin C Serum even contained ANY actual Vitamin C at all! Turns out, it does contain Ascorbyl Glucoside (a stable form of vitamin C), but it is veryyyyy far down on the serum's ingredient list ☹️ I will admit that it was my own fault for not doing any research or looking into this at all beforehand, but I guess I just trusted Sephora to not dupe its customers like that and... I guess I shouldn't have put any trust in them at all. I gave this "Vitamin C" serum 2 stars instead of just 1 only because I did enjoy the actual consistency of the serum; basically, if only the Vitamin C were higher on the ingredient list, I probably would have loved this serum. The consistency of this serum is like a watery texture with a lil bit of a slip to it; it is not sticky or tacky at all and I didn't experience any pilling at all. Unfortunately, I'm not going to purchase this again just because I enjoyed the consistency, and I would not recommend it to anyone either. For $20, I expect to have at LEAST the MAIN product claim to be true... I don't think this product is worth it at all for anyone looking for a decent vitamin C serum. If you ARE looking for a good vitamin C serum that is also affordable and actually potent, I recommend the The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone - that product is great and I've already purchased a backup, and the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it might actually be TOO potent for some people. Thx 4 reading!
