This FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter in the shade Wattabrat. It’s such a gorgeous shimmer highlight that comes off pink and silver. I’m honestly obsessed! This was my first Fenty highlight and it did not disappoint at ALL! I definitely recommend this highlighter and bet her others are just as great, worth the price!

Acne be gone!
These COSRX - One Step Original Clear Pad have been a staple in my skincare collection for almost a year now. It’s a great and simple no frills toner. I like to cut the pads in half to maximize the amount of product I have, and half is more than enough. After I cleanse I wipe one across my face and it tones and removes any excess makeup I missed. They’re only about $20 I definitely recommend them and would repurchase! & don’t forget to use the bumpy side for mild exfoliation!!

I heart duos!
I initially bought the Bronze and Glow Mini Duo thinking it’s just a dupe for a luxury product but omg this is even better! The bronzer is a great shade and applies so smooth. The highlight is a stunning natural champagne, like I just got kissed by the sun type of glow! This duo is ridiculously affordable so I definitely think it’s worth the try, I love the packaging as well, it’s a great amount of product and smells good! 10/10

The FENTY BEAUTY - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer is one of my all time favorite bronzers. The formula is so silky and smooth, it doesn’t skip or stick to any dry patches it applies beautifully. The shade range is great and they give such a beautiful natural warmth to the skin that you can build on. I like that it’s matte and has no shimmer, it makes it even more beautiful. Although it’s a little pricy for a bronzer it is 100000% worth it and would rebuy! I definitely recommend!

If I Could Only Own ONE ~ FAV EYESHADOW PALETTE
I am obsessed with this #Tati Beauty - Textured Neutrals Vol. 1 Eyeshadow Palette[products]# eyeshadow palette! I have been a fan of Tati (GlamLifeGuru) for yeaaaars and when I saw she was coming out with a palette I knew I needed! I didn’t order until it was available for the most recent restock because I was trying to convince myself I didn’t need it. (I did in fact need it) I’ve used it every single day since I got it. The shadows blend so easily on top of my eyeshadow primer and lasts all day long. I love the shimmer shades for all over the lid and the glitters are stunning, they stay on all day and no flaking or falling off. The case is hard and heavy and also has a mirror the size of the the top lid. This palette is $48 but with shipping and tax comes close to $60, so it definitely if a steep price but worth it!

BEST PURCHASE EVER
Bought this cleanser for the hype and it did not let me down! This cleanser is what I go to when my skin feels sensitive, dry, oily, I’ve had a professional treatment done. It doesn’t smell overly green from the ingredients, gives the perfect lather and I love that they offer this in a mini size

My new favorite facial wash! 🐸
Now I’m sure you’ve heard about the frog in the room...Holifrog to be exact! Today I’m demo-ing their AHA acid cleanser, Shasta. HOLI FROG - Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash Shasta’s ingredients highlight caviar lime as an AHA among many nourishing oils. So while Shasta gets your routine going in the morning with a lil splish splash, it’s not stripping or drying like other acid cleansers are! Shasta has a hybrid cream/gel texture in my opinion and produces no lather—however, you can FEEL it breaking down on your skin and it leaves absolutely ZERO residue. It’s wild!! I usually use it in the mornings and sometimes at night as my second cleanse. I usually pair it with my FOREO or my regular silicone scrubber like I did in this video. This ensures the product is really getting in my skin. The cool thing about this wash is that it’s suitable for sensitive skin, because of what I mentioned above but also because it’s an AHA in the form of a cleanser, so it’s affecting your skin during the wash but it’s not a potent leave-on treatment that can give you chemical burns or overly sensitize your skin. Shasta retails for $38 which I think is a great deal for the STELLAR ingredient list it holds. Cruelty free? Check. It really checks off all my requirements for my skin, and I’ve had a lot less breakouts since introducing it in my routine. I highly recommend Shasta if you’re in the market for something different. I have to give this 5 out of 5 stars for its excellent ingredient list and what it has done for my skin!

bite vs milk
I have another review on two lip balms I’ve had in my stash for a while, one almost used up and one barely used! Keep reading to see who and why! I have normal to oily skin, acne prone with rosacea! Products: BITE - Agave+ Daytime Vegan Lip Balm Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Lip Balm Scent: Bite- kind of honey, kind of sweet! Milk- very minty Texture: Bite- honestly like butter, broke in the tube it’s so soft! Milk- medium thickness, goes on evenly! Claims: Bite- agave nectar and coco butter for hydration and soothing, long lasting! Milk- cannabis sativa seed oil soothes, Shea butter hydrates Function: Bite- perfect for day or night, non irritating, non sticky! Plays well with others! Milk- I use this at home or at night, mainly because it messes up any lip product consistency if I use it with a lipstick Price: Bite- $14 for .15oz (I have a mini) Milk- $16 for .1oz Overall: Bite- I hate that this broke in its tube, so it’s kind of squashed but it’s still so good! The scent is so sweet but doesn’t bother me, doesn’t taste bad or break me out. Milk- I think this might be breaking me out, I’m almost finished with it because it’s been one of my Project pans to get it out of my house. I don’t think I’d ever repurchase this, the minty scent is far too overpowering and makes my lips tingle. Overall, my favorite of the two is the bite balm! It’s easy to apply, smells great, and hydrates much better than milk!

🍄A fabulous Lotion with Various Type Mushrooms
🌱Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Treatment Lotion I absolutely recommend this product, especially for those who has sensitive or acne-prone skin. There're various types of mushroom ingredients in the lotion, including Reishi Mushroom, Sea Buckthorn and Fermented Chaga, to help with reducing redness and skin recovery. I've been using it for few months. The lotion do help to reduce my skin's redness and small pimples on my forehead. After applying, my skin always feel calm and soothing. Of course, it also hydrates skin. It's a liquid and watery lotion, so I use it as a toner always after cleaning my face. And then, I will put on moisturizer. I think this lotion is lightweight enough to be used as a toner. The lotion has herbal scent, which comes from the ingredients themselves. It's not very strong and totally acceptable. I will give it five stars, as it does what it claims.

FOR EXTREMELY DRY SKIN
If your skin is ALWAYS dry no matter what, THESE products are the one! I’ve always had problems with the dryness of my skin. I have tried so many moisturizing products and I still could not find the perfect one. Until I stumbled upon these. When I tell you that they don’t disappoint, THEY DO NOT. When I smack these babies on my skin, it keeps my face extremely moisturized and glowing THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE DAY! I always get compliments for having dewy skin and that’s all because of these olive real skin line from Innisfree. The products are rich in golden olives which is praised for its nutritional value and its refreshing way to moisturize the skin. It increases skin elasticity, contains 10,000ppm of extra virgin oil (has nutritious essential care), provides radiance, and a natural moisture barrier. I have been using these products since last year and I don’t think I will ever switch to another one. The olive real skin line of Innisfree is so promising, it never fails to amaze me!! I’m 18 y.o. and the last two pictures showcase the clearness of my skin because of THESE products. They keep my skin moisturized and glowy! I’m not lying! It makes your skin glow, refreshed, and soft.
