I purchased the Light Wonder foundation looking for something with a lighter amount of coverage for the summer months. Most of the other foundation I own is medium to full coverage, and just felt too heavy for hot and muggy city days.
I have to say, Light Wonder is exactly what I was looking for, and more. While the foundation always feels light on the skin, the coverage is buildable and I do feel like you can build it up to medium coverage. I use it with a damp sponge, or with my fingers if I am rushing out the door. It is super easy to apply either way.
For color matching, I am very fair with cool undertones and the 02 Fair shade was a perfect match for me. I highly recommend this foundation and know it will see me through summer and beyond.
In the box these lashes made me a bit hesitant, as I was looking for something pretty natural to wear for a friend's wedding. When I put them on though, I fell in love! They are not obviously fake and I love the amount of volume they give.
I am not an everyday fake eyelash wearer, but for future special occasions, I will definitely go back to these.
One of my favorite things about this serum is that it smells sooo good. It is citrus-y and refreshing. I use it in the morning so it really wakes me up!
I was hesitant to try this because I heard of some people breaking out when they first start using it, but I did not run into that problem. I had been feeling like my skin looked dull and sad, and this serum brought it back to life.
The name of the product perfectly describes the scent, and it is GOOD. What i love most about the scent is its subtlety. It is not an overpowering or overly sweet scent that you can't get rid of. It is extremely light and fresh, but it is there.
Besides smelling great, it performs really well. I recently lightened my hair and it needed some extra and love, and this did the trick. I apply it from mid length to end and my hair always comes out super soft.
My favorite thing about this brush is how super soft it is. I use it for applying bronzer, and while it took me a few tries to get used to using such a large brush, I now absolutely love it. The size and fluffiness allows you to really diffuse and blend the product for a natural look.
I would definitely recommend brush for people who are new to using makeup brushes, as the price point cannot be beat and really allows you to play around and see what you like. Pros would also love these because they are great quality!
At this point there is not much left to be said about Charlotte Tilbury's legendry lipsticks, but I just had to add my two cents. I LOVE this color!
I am a huge fan of natural/nude looking lipsticks, but sometimes it is hard to find that perfect shade. Up until I tried Pillow Talk, my go to was Nars' Dulce Vita. While that is still a lovely shade, I find myself reaching for Pillow Talk more and more. It is the perfect "your lip color but better shade" for my fair complexion, and the formula, while matte, is not drying.
With summer quickly approaching on the East Coast, I was on the hunt for a mist to use during that day to give me a little pick-me-up. When I saw this one from Boscia, I new I had to try it-- the packaging is too cute to resist!
The more I use it, the more I love it. While I initially purchased this to use as a mid day refresher, I find myself using it for so many other purposes as well. I use it a a toner/primer during the day, and plan to use it as a setting spray once I am out of my current one. I just love that it serves so many purposes in one bottle, making it super easy to travel with.
I have tried A LOT of foundations, and have never found one that I wanted to repurchase. I think I have finally found that, though.
What I love most is how well this shade matches me. I am extremely pale and have a lot of pink in my skin, and A02 is a dead on match. You also do not need a lot to cover your whole face-- about half a pump works for me. Given that, this foundation will last me quite a long time. Lastly, because it is primer infused, this foundation goes on so smoothly and lasts all work day and beyond.
Having heard of all the great things rosehip seed oil does for your skin, I was excited to try products with this ingredient. I originally purchased a rosehip oil from another very popular brand, but it immediately broke me out, and I ended up giving it to a friend. I thought that rosehip seed oil and I just weren't meant to be.
Thankfully, I ended up giving it another shot with this one from Pai, and I am so glad I did. This oil does not break me out at all. It feels super hydrating, so I love using it in the colder part of the year. But, it absorbs pretty quickly so I can see myself continuing to use this into the summer.
Slowly, I am becoming a Farmacy junkie. Everything I have tried from them is great, and the Honey Drop is no exception.
The texture of this moisturizer is lovely and feels so light on your skin. It also absorbs into your skin really quickly which is great for a morning moisturizer before applying makeup. I definitely would not recommend this moisturizer if your skin is dry. I actually bought this to use in the summer but I couldn't resist giving it a try. My skin is too dry right now for it to be my everyday moisturizer, but I know in the summer it will be perfect for me.
My favorite little surprise with this product is the packaging. The lid is magnetic so you can stick the little spatula on top and you won't lose it. When I discovered that, it made me so happy! What a smart idea.
