I had this entire review finished and Instagram crashed 😭 So let's do it again! I got this little moisturizer as a gift for Christmas and I've been meaning to review it for some time. The full size jar is roughly $30 for 1.7 oz, which is usually a no no for me. I am very rarely impressed by pricier brands unless I can actually feel the difference in quality (which generally does not happen). However, this easily became one of my favorite day time moisturizers. Other than a bunch of unnecessary extracts (though I have to say, I'm fine with them just for the smell, it's so lovely), the formula is pretty exceptional. I was glad to see a lot of nice humectants, which my dehydrated skin always welcomes. I also absolutely love that it's a silicone based moisturizer. I feel like silicones get a real bad rap because of misinformation, they can do a lot of good. It's a bit of a watery texture, but it sinks in so fast and left my face feeling like silk. There was absolutely 0 greasy feeling, which I'm always excited for, and the silicone base makes it an amazing primer. The thing I loved the most, however, was how little it actually took. This little sample has lasted me nearly three months, of almost daily use. Totally justifiable for a 1.7 oz full size, I bet it'd last me the whole year. All in all, I have to shockingly say I was very impressed, and the only reason I won't repurchase is because it's not cruelty free (which is just a personal choice).

Was inspired by @villagemakeup to do a Sephora sale recommendation post ❤️ This is the makeup edition and I’ll do a skincare one tomorrow. I tried to pick brands and items that were exclusive to @sephora (or at least not in ULTA). Let me know what your recommendations are too! @hourglass ambient lighting palette: I’ve had this forever and still love it! I sweep a large fluffy blush over all the powders and then swipe over my cheeks, nose, forehead and chin for a warm glow. Individually the first one is a subtle highlight, second one an overall warming glow and the third a natural bronzer. @lauramercier flawless lumiere radiance perfecting foundation: Gives skin the softest glow and perfect for skin on the drier side. @patmcgrathreal mattetrance lipstick: The Sephora sale is a perfect time to get those luxury items that you’ve been eyeing! There’s no matte lipstick like Pat’s; it’s creamy, pigmented and divinely matte. @jouercosmetics rose gold blush bouquet: these are just perfect shades! I can wear it with any look and it’s makes the skin look so pretty. @narsissist Orgasm blush in limited edition packaging: I love the blush, I love the packaging, enough said. Not for you if you don’t like shimmery blushes. @marcjacobsbeauty O!Mega Bronzer: it’s hard to find a bronzer that isn’t too warm for my neutral skin tone, but this one suits me perfectly. The formula also blends seamlessly and sits nicely on foundation. @tatcha Silk Canvas: I loved this when I had oily skin and I loved it when I had dry skin. It just blurs pores and grabs on to your foundation, without feeling heavy. Best primer ever! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * #sephoravibsale#sephorarouge#productreview#hourglasscosmetics#ambientlightingpalette#sephorabrands#lauramercier#flawlesslumiere#patmcgrath#patmcgrathlabs#mattetrance#jouercosmetics#blushbouquet#tatcha#tatchasilkcanvas#marcjacobsbeauty#omegabronzer#nars#narsorgasm#makeupcollection#makeuplife
“𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮 𝗺𝗮𝗻 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮 𝗺𝗮𝗻 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮 𝗺𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘆 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗺𝗮𝗻…” Now some of you are probably thinking about the Salt-N-Pepa song with this headline. I wanted to draw your attention to a growing part of the aesthetic industry, 𝗺𝗮𝗹𝗲 𝗰𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁. With greater overall acceptance in cosmetic procedures the number of men who are engaging in this field is climbing. You might have already heard of the term “𝗕𝗿𝗼𝘁𝗼𝘅”, which is implying the rising trend amongst the male population. We think it is a great development to see men as well as women feeling comfortable and trusting the 𝗮𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗰 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘆 with their visions. Some practitioners and clinics like to differentiate between the 𝘁𝘆𝗽𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗰𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗿𝗲𝘀 that men choose to undergo versus the choices women make. We are proposing that perhaps we should move away from making 𝗯𝗿𝗼𝗮𝗱 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 and instead address the desires of each individual so as not to stereotype any clients. 📷 @feifeiisse - - - #skincareroutine#beautyroutine#igbeauty#beautycommunity#natural#healthy#skin#health#makeup#dermatology#cosmetics#young#care#women#antiaging#antiwrinkle
What’s a Vampires Favorite Fruit?! NECK-tarines 😂 ✨✨✨ This Vampire PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic-Acid) Jelly Mask gradually builds collagen and makes skin thicker, bouncier and more resilient. It helps replenish and contour sallow skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and lips. Lactic acid is an amazing brightening ingredient for the skin! ✨ Jelly yet?
Swatches of the @jeffreestarcosmetics Thirsty palette! So excited to use this palette and the new face products! . The glitters in this palette have a very unique formula. Divine and Lick have more of a smooth metallic feel to them and the others are a bit more textured with bigger glitters. . In my opinion this is the perfect summer palette! Definitely will be taking this to Florida with me for my sisters wedding.

Anything but “Ordinary”- finally sharing my reviews on my first @deciem products! Wonderful line & at a fantastic $ 〰️ 🔘Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA: ❤️this moisturizer- it’s non-greasy & packs a punch with 11 amino acids and hyaluronic acid. It’s great to the touch and doesn’t feel cakey on the skin. Me encanta esta crema facial, no es grasosa y trae 11 ácidos aminos y ácido hialurónico que trabajan para combatir señales de vejez en la piel. Se siente suave y no pesada sobre la piel. 〰️ 🔘The “Buffet” Peptide serum: At first I thought this was a bit sticky but the effects have proven it worth it! This is multi-peptide serum with syn-ake, matrixyl synthe-6, matrixyl 3000, argirelox, hyaluronic acid, amino acids and bio-derivatives that tackle multiple signs of aging- who isn’t looking for that? Al principio pensé que este serum es un poco pegajoso pero después de varias semanas de uso ya, los resultados valen la pena! Es un serum con un montón de ingredientes anti-aging y acido hialurónico- quién no quiere borrar unos años de su cara? 〰️ 🔘Granacttive Retinoid serum: I use this as a second punch anti-aging serum at night only (before heavier treatment). The retinoid active used in this helps reduce irritation often associated with retinoids. It’s light & I feel like it smooths over my skin to lock in moisture and work on it while I sleep. Uso este serum solamente en las noches después del “Buffet” y antes de cremas de noche más pesadas. El ingrediente retinoid que contiene ayuda a reducir irritación que es común con los retinoides. Es liviana y suaviza mi piel, contiene hidración, y trabaja en mi piel mientrás duermo. 〰️ Which are your favorite @deciem products I should try? Cuales son tus productos de @deciem favoritos que tendría que probar? #beautycare#skincarecommunity#skincare#skinisin#skincaretips#facecare#beautycommunity#beautytips#beautyful#beautybloggers#beautyonthego
I was kindly sent these gorgeous products a little while ago and I’ve been trying them out. The products are from 3 different brands: . . @diegodallapalma_official . Universal Naked Powder 321 - This is a silky powder which gives your skin a slight radiant finish. I have dry skin and it sits lovely on it and doesn’t cling to my dry patches. This retails for £25.53. . The Lipstick - 31 ‘Deep Red’. This lipstick is so moisturising and glides on my lips so smoothly. It’s really pigmented and is one of the most gorgeous red lipsticks I’ve tried. My lips looked fuller and smoother and it’s because there are tiny beads of marine collagen which penetrates into the contours of your lips and smooths wrinkles and creates an immediate lifting effect which I definitely agree with. It’s so good I now want it in more shades! Retail Price: £21.55 . Nudissimo lipstick - 202 ‘Bidibi Bodibi Nude’. This lipstick has a matte creamy texture. It is so pigmented and I only needed 1 swipe for an opaque finish. It feels very comfortable and not drying at all. Retail price: £18.95 . . @katvondbeauty . Ink Well Liners - shades ‘White Out’ (white) ‘Outlaw’ (Red). These are longwear matte liquid eyeliners. They are waterproof and dry quickly. They last really well on the eyes and are also smudge proof. These come in a range of different shades. Retail price: £17 each. . Lash Liner liquid eyeliner shade - Trooper black. This eyeliner is for your waterline and it’s water resistant. The recommended technique for applying this liner is not to blink for a few seconds so it has time to set. Unfortunately I have sensitive eyes so it didn’t stand a chance with me 🙈 Retail price: £17 . . @opvbeauty . Highlighter. Shade - Stardust. This is a stunning highlighter. It has a creamy based formula and it blends really nicely. It is very golden and although it’s too dark for my pale skin it will be gorgeous when I have applied tan. Retail price:
Back to the sunshine series! If there’s one (makeup) thing you NEED to buy at the upcoming @sephora Sale, it’s this. This @natashadenona Bloom Blush Glow palette is UNREAL. When I first saw this, I was scared by the top-right shade. I thought it would be way to dark and I wouldn’t be able to use it. I was definitely so wrong about that! It is such a gorgeous shade and you need the smallest amount of it. It looks like a perfect natural cheek flush on the skin (like when you pinch your cheeks). The other shades are just as stunning. If I’m going for a very natural look, I’ll only use the cream glow shade as my blush. The powder blush (duo glow) is a beautiful peachy color that is great for spring, and the glow extreme highlighter is exactly what it says in its name! 👉🏼 swipe for swatches. Top to bottom: duo glow, glow extreme, cream blush, glow creme base. . . . . . #beautycommunity#makeupinspo#natashadenona#natashadenonapalette#natashadenonabloom#makeup#makeuplife#makeupaddict
Как накрасить губы красным, чтобы это не выглядело слишком кричаще? Очень-очень тонким слоем! За это я люблю #lippistix от @colourpopcosmetics . Здесь оттенок Weekender - обычно я использую его для создания яркого образа. А здесь немного нанесла на центр и растушевала пальцем. Просто и красиво) А как вы предпочитаете наносить помаду - с четким контуром или едва заметно? . #lipart#redlips#colourpop#colourpopcosmetix#colourpoplips #makeup#wakeupandmakeup#motd#lippie#lippies#beauty #beautycommunity #beautymakeup#입술#화장품#메이크업#립스틱#분홍색#패션#化粧
ACNE TIPS ☝🏽: Mild acne or an occasional pimple can be treated with drugstore products containing 2,5% benzoyl peroxide and 2% salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria, whereas salicylic acid cleans out pores. You don’t have to wait for a breakout to happen to use these products. If you have hormonal acne or know you break out in specific areas, apply the product daily. You can also alternate between benzoyl peroxide one day and salicylic acid the next. Salicylic acid should be used at night (it makes skin more sensitive to the sun) and cannot be used while pregnant. #acne
Tonight’s routine 💤 I’ve decided to take a baby step onto the retinol train with the @firstaidbeauty retinol serum 0.25% The 0.25% concentration of retinol in the formula is balanced with First Aid Beauty’s Skin Saver Complex to deliver the benefits of retinol with minimal irritation. This serum contains hyaluronic acid, vitamins C + E, aloe, colloidal oatmeal, allantoin and ceramides to help nourish your skin and avoid irritation/dryness from the retinol. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and I haven’t experienced any dryness, which I expected since it’s only 0.25%, but I’m still excited! I’m only using it 3x a week right now but I think I’ll switch to every other night starting next month.
