Makeup Products to Keep in Your Purse This Summer

Whether you are traveling cross-country or simply going about your daily commute, it’s always a good idea to have a few makeup products on hand. You never know when you might need to touch-up your makeup while out and about. Preparation is key and it is unfailingly better to be safe than sorry.

Now that we are approaching summer, I thought it’d be the perfect time to talk about updating the ordinary makeup products we keep handy in our purses. Your skin will react differently to the heat and sun exposure in the summer than it would in the spring or fall. Staying in tune with your body and the way it responds to the changes in the weather will help you to maintain the utmost of self-care. Here are a few makeup products to ensure you tote around with you this summer:

Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review

Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review

*DISCLAIMER: I received this product complimentary via Influenster

It is one of the most talked about beauty products on the market right now. Kush Mascara is raising eyebrows due to its usage of a very interesting ingredient: Weed. I have to applaud the marketing team behind Kush Mascara for their brilliant usage of typical references to weed in the context of a mascara (i.e. “One hit for high volume” and it’s release on 4/20). It certainly ignited my curiosity about the product and just how closely it would measure up to its claims of bringing on the volume.

I was not apart of the lucky few who actually received their Kush VoxBox on 4/20 but it did not take away my excitement upon receiving it. Before I dive into the review and talk about my experience thus far, I’d like to answer two dominating questions you may or may not have thought of by now:  Continue reading “Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review”

Covergirl’s Melting Pout Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review

Covergirl’s Melting Pout Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review
DISCLAIMER: I received these products complimentary via Influenster

There are two things that matte liquid lipsticks tend to have to combat: 1) a drying formula and 2) not being smudge proof or long-lasting. It is safe to say that Covergirl’s Melting Pout Matte liquid lipsticks successfully combat both of these issues.  Continue reading “Covergirl’s Melting Pout Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review”

St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)

St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)

I received my first VoxBox complimentary via Influenster (if you are a beauty addict or just enjoy free things in general, you should sign up!! It’s amazing.) at the end of December 2017 after having a profile with Influenster for a good year, year and a half. A cool milestone to reach just in time for the new year if I do say so myself. *wink wink*  

Now if you follow me on Instagram, you might be saying “finallyyyyyy!” because I was so excited when I got the products, I posted about them as soon as I possibly could (that was back in December..). I mean, in a sense, you’re right. This review is sort of overdue from a chronological standpoint but if we look at it from a testing period standpoint… I’m actually right on time (;

I wanted to wait a little to write and Continue reading “St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)”

Drugstore Gems: E.L.F HD Lifting Concealers

Drugstore Gems: E.L.F HD Lifting Concealers

I found my hunt for a decent drugstore concealer a bit of a tricky one, especially with the various recommendations from beauty bloggers and vloggers. In my personal search, my immediate go-to products to test were Maybelline’s FitMe Concealer and Instant Age Rewind Concealer seeing as how both have been claimed as favorites by many.

Drugstore Gems: Milani Baked Blushes

Drugstore Gems: Milani Baked Blushes

I have no shame in saving a buck or two on products that are just as superb as (and sometimes even better than) their high-end competitors! I wanted to start a new series on the blog in honor of that and share with you guys the drugstore products whose value I feel totally surpasses the monetary one given them.

I figured starting off with my favorite two shades of Milani Baked Blushes would be a great way to kick off the series! I mean, really, just look at how gorgeous these are… Continue reading “Drugstore Gems: Milani Baked Blushes”
