NEW Freckle Pens from Colourpop!
If you know my makeup style by now, then your know I love love LOVE faux freckles. In this video I used the new Colourpop Freckle pens and I’m so impressed! They’ll come in 2 shades and launch 07/16! They each retail for just $8!!! Which is a steal! They are buildable if you like a darker type of freckle pattern. I usually use the ones from Lime Crime but these are definitely up there in the quality and so affordable too! Colourpop is a company that will always have my money because we love a brand that keeps it affordable without compromising quality!

Saves my lips
I am overall a dry person and my lips are really no exception. I have yet to go a winter without cracked, bleeding lips no matter how much I slather them with products. I started using the balm dot coms in the summer where I found them to be super hydrating, especially overnight and have found they are working well for the cold too. My lips stay hydrated all night and I wake up with smooth lips. It doesn’t transfer off at night which I love. Plus they have a ton of flavors. The coconut is my favorite daily use one but the berry is perfect for when you want a little tint to your lips. Also have used the mango which by far is the best flavor (except I lost mine which I’m still mad about!)
These saved my dry tight skin! ❄️
I usually have combination skin but for the past few weeks my skin has been extremely dry and tight. I’ve felt the most dryness on the lower parts of my cheeks and slowly my face has become more sensitive. These products have definitely helped improve the texture and hydration of my skin. I’m usually somewhat dry with my forehead/nose being really oily. My area has been having really cold dry winter days and nights. I start off with glossier milky jelly cleanser. It’s super conditioning. It doesn’t lather and helps soothe the redness. This has always worked for my combination skin and now works perfectly for my dehydrated dry skin. This doesn’t have a scent which I love. I have the full size and I already bought a back up of this. Full size is 6 oz $18 Mini size is 2 oz $9 Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I follow with my peach & Lilly glass skin refining serum. I’ve been using this since July and it’s really light but moisturizing. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all and I’ve definitely seen my skin be less textured. This texture is very thin close to watery. This also doesn’t have a scent to it. It’s kinda pricey but does last several months. It’s $39 for 1 oz PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum For moisturizer I’ve been using the GLAMGLOW moisture trip omega rich moisturizer. This is a lightweight moisturizer but feels very hydrating. It has helped with my redness a lot. It has hyaluronic acid so it will help with dryness. It’s a nice feeling knowing you’re putting on a good moisturizer to help with dryness without the thickness of it. It has a slight fresh/avocado scent to it. It’s pricey at $55 for 1.7 oz. GLAMGLOW - MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Face Moisturizer At night I love to follow with the origins drink up intensive overnight hydrating mask with avocado & Swiss glacier water. I absolutely love this overnight mask. I’ve been using it for years and it’s something I trust to get rid of the dryness and tightness in my skin. It feels really soft on the skin and it’s not thick. Its great for my sensitive skin too. It has a very slight avocado smell but it’s not too much. For the first week I used this every night. After that I now use this every other day. Besides that I tend to use this once or twice a week. Full 2.5 oz is $27 Mini 1 oz is $13 ORIGINS - Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst I never forget about the lips and I use my trusty glossier mint balm dot com. I love this so much that I’m almost done with it. Personally the mint, rose, coconut and Un scented one are the ones with the most hydration. It’s pricey but I’ve had this for about a year. It’s 0.5 oz for $12. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom
BALM DOT COM
Ranking my fave flavors! 1. Love love love the new wild fig flavor. It has a great reddish tint, so has a great lip gloss effect. Smell/taste is super subdued. 2. Big fan of mango! Something I noticed is that this is the only one recommended for use as a skin salve—for example, on the cuticles. I love the smell and cannot wait to use it every time! 3. Berry - similar to the fig, it has a purple-ish tint so works great as a lip gloss. The smell/taste is great too. 4. I know the birthday flavor is not for everyone, but I can’t help but love it! It has little flecks of glitter and smells/tastes exactly like birthday cake icing! Glossier. - Balm Dotcom
Perfect lip trio on-the-go
Hokayyyyy. I think this is the perfect lip trio for any trip (whether it’s just to work or a vacation)! Especially when your strapped for space in your purse / luggage / makeup bag, I like to be strategic and simplify my stash to just three go-to products. And just want to note, I typically opt for a more natural face of makeup. So each of these products are pretty light, glossy and don’t have too much colour. And since I have fairly dry lips, I typically opt for products that will provide me with extra moisture versus matte products that will leave me lips dry. FOR DAY TIME: Glossier. - Balm Dotcom (Rose) + it smells amazing. + the petroleum like texture + doesn’t leave your lips sticky at all. + sleek packaging that you can fit in any bag or even your pocket. - I find your lips need to already be in a good state to use this product consistently. If your lips are cracked or peeling you’ll need something a little more heavy duty. FOR NIGHT TIME AND WHEN LIPS NEED MOISTURE LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask (Grapefruit) + thick and moisturizing formula that will leave your lips feeling plump and nourished the next morning. + smells nice. + this almost looks like a lipgloss when you put it on, it leaves your lips super shiny and doesn’t make them sticky. + this grapefruit one gives your lips a slight pink tint. AND WHEN YOU WANT TO DRESS UP FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer (FU$$Y) + This has the prettiest pink colour that isn’t too overpowering or bright. + such a beautiful formula that is moisturizing, won’t dry out your lips. + this lipgloss instantly makes you lips look plump and dare I say juicy, but also gives you a tiny bit of sparkle. + no sticky lips! + super travel friendly packaging. It’s small enough to fit in almost any pocket or purse, and it’s packaging isn’t too delicate so you can throw in anywhere without worrying about it breaking. The only thing missing.. is a good SPF for the lips. If anyone has any recommendations I’d love to hear them 💋
Excited about NY, going to prep my skin up tonight 🥰, not 100% sure what mask I will use. So I have had glossier for a couple of weeks now, so have had a good play with the products. First off the packaging is spot on! My opinions on the products. 🔸Cloud paint: Really like these! Really pigmented and apply really well and last a while, even on my slightly oily summer face. The one I have been reaching for is “dusk” which is a brownish nude, and is so perfect for everyday. I apply with my fingers then buff out with an eco tools stripping brush. 🔸Balm Dotcom: These are pretty good and I like them but I wouldn’t say they are must have, I have a variety of balms that work just as well. 🔸Boybrow: love this! I have been growing my brows out and using a brow serum to help with the growth as I over plucked in my 20s and also lost some hair when I was pregnant. This brow gel gives my brows volume and gives me actual boy brows, I could be competing with my husband right now! 🔸Lashslick: Nice mascara for everyday natural look. 🔸Haloscope: In colour quartz. Very Dewy highlighter. I like it but have to be careful when I use it, it can “move” my foundation if I am not careful and if my face is oily it can make it look oilier. So quite like the products, and for the price point they are good! They are perfect for a natural look, and that is their selling point. My favourite is the cloud paints, very pigmented and easy to blend and don’t settle into pores.
