Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser-  I told the lady at Sephora that I needed a new cleanser that wasn’t super expensive and she immediately ran over to this. The full-size bottle is $30 but I bought this travel size for $10. This cleanser has a gel consistency which I love and it warms up once you start rubbing it on your face. So far I am loving it and I think I am going to end up buying the full size. You can check it out here.

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara- This was an impulse buy in the Ulta check-out lane but I ended up loving it. It curls my lashes and keeps them curled throughout the day. This is $8 at Ulta.

NYX Duochromatic highlighters- I have the shades snow rose and twilight tint. Snow rose has a pinky shift and twilight tint has a blue shift. I have been wanting to try some funky colored highlighters and I have loved these. I think next I want to get the Kat Von D alchemist palette. If you want to check out these NYX highlighters you can click here.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Scrub- This smells so good! To me, it honestly smells like Coca-Cola. I also think this scrub has been helping my body acne. I bought this at Target.

Super Cola Candy- These are kind of like a warhead. They start off sour but then it’s a sweet cola candy. I have been eating these so much. I found them at world market.

Song of the month- Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato

Show of the month- Handmaid’s tale

20170114_155315

This is a very late post, but I forgot that I had these products hidden away. I do not really go through a lot of products, but here’s what I went through in the last half of 2016.

Neutrogena body clear body wash- Let’s be honest we all get body acne from time to time. It happens to be a problem I deal with and I feel like this worked very well for that.

  • Would I rebuy? Already have

Pantene 3 minute miracle conditioner- This is supposed to be like a daily hair mask for your hair. Honestly, I didn’t really notice a difference from normal conditioner.

  • Would I rebuy? no

Revlon colorstay foundation for combination/oily skin- I really liked this foundation. The shade was good for me and it sat nicely on my skin. I also happen to enjoy that there is SPF in this.

  • Would I rebuy? Yes, I want to go repurchase this.

Suave Keratin dry shampoo- I did not like this dry shampoo. It really didn’t feel like it did anything for my hair.

  • Would I rebuy? no

Briogeo Don’t Despair, repair hair mask- I received this in an ipsy bag, so this is a sample. Honestly, I don’t feel like I used this enough to form an actual opinion on it. I watch a person on YouTube who raves about this.

  • Would I rebuy? sure

Essence say no to dark circle- This is the very first color corrector that I have tried. I think it works ok. I want to try other color correctors but this one is only $3.

  • Would I rebuy? already have

Pure Brazilian miracle leave-in conditioner- I really liked this on my hair! I love spray this on my ends to help with frizziness. I want to try other leave-in conditioners to see what else I like.

  • Would I rebuy? Yes!

Urban Decay perversion mascara- This was another product I received in an Ipsy bag. I love receiving sample mascaras because It gives me the chance to try them. This mascara didn’t really have anything special to me. It just seemed like a normal mascara.

  • Would I rebuy? no

Covergirl supersizer mascara- Honestly, I only bought this because it had star wars packaging. I was really surprised by the wand the first time I used it. It was a decent mascara and surprised me.

  • Would I rebuy? Probably, but I want to try different ones.

Ipsy November 2016

Ipsy November 2016

I’m back! Hopefully I will start posting again. Taking 3 chemistry classes has definitely taken a toll on me this past semester. I want to start posting again so I’m going to start with my November Ipsy bag. I’ve decided that I’m going to cancel my Ipsy subscription and do boxycharm instead. I just feel like Boxycharm is a really good deal and I can only afford one subscription. I loved everything in this bag this month. 

Tarte Maracuja Oil- I already put this oil on every night so I was very excited to relieve this. This oil seems to really help with me redness and makes me skin look smoother. 

The Balm Mad Lash mascara- I really like this mascara and I think it works really well. The packaging is not good though. You pull the cap off instead of twisting it off. when I first pulled the cap off mascara went everywhere. I just don’t understand the point of changing it from twisting off. 

Pur-lisse face moisturizer – personally I already like the moisturizer that I’m currently using but I’m going to try this as an eye cream because it has really good ingredients.

Absolute Matte Lipstick – I was so excited to get a full size lipstick in the bag. This color is very nice and I feel like the lipstick has good wear time. 

Miss glam angled eye brush- This is a really good brush with the right amount of softness and stiffness. So far I like it. 

Mid 2016 Empties

Mid 2016 Empties

When I am on YouTube I love watching empty product videos. So I thought, ” Why don’t I do something like that?” This post is all the empty products that I have finished this point in the 2016 year.

mid 2016 emptiesBiore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser

This is the liquid version of the baking soda face cleansers. I also have the powder one and I don’t really know what the difference is supposed to be between these two products. The liquid version actually really dried out my skin but the powder version hasn’t. I think this could be because the liquid version has sulfate in it. I will not be repurchasing this.

Maybelline Master Hi-Light Highlighting Bronzer

I bought this when I was first diving into the world of bronzers. It wasn’t just a straight bronzer color. It had colors of pink and highlighting colors included in it. This is really great if you don’t want to actually apply bronzer, blush, and highlight. You can just put this on with one swipe and it’s a great alternative to that. I would repurchase this product.

Ulta Matte Primer

How come nobody talks about Ulta’s line of makeup? They have some great products in their line with this being one of them. One thing that I love about this is that it has salicylic acid which is good for acne. The formula is kind of a gel formula which is something that I don’t particularly like but it makes my foundation stay on all day. I will be repurchasing this.

Ulta Amped Lashes

This mascara is supposed to give you really amped lashes which it does do. However, this product is clumpy and smudges under my eyes by the end of the day. I would not repurchase this.

Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment

I got this in a set with the maracuja oil which I just featured in my favorites. This eye cream is not something that I like. First off, it is really pricey. Second of all, I did not see a difference in my eyes at all. I will not be repurchasing. Let me know if you guys have an eye cream that you like because I am on the hunt for one that really works.

Lush Tea Tree Toner Water

This is actually already a repurchase but I haven’t mentioned it in a while. This is great for keeping my oil at bay throughout the day. If you have oily skin you need to try this toner. I also love that it’s in a spray bottle so I don’t have to get out a cotton pad. I will be repurchasing again.

93,000 Miles and Whoosh Shower Jellies

I’m grouping these two products together because they’re both shower jellies but different scents. The Lush shower jellies are so much fun and everybody needs one of these in their life. Both of these scents are great and I would repurchase both. I want to try all the scents so I think I’m going to get the pine and needle scent next.

Garnier Micellar Water

Micellar water is an amazing way to remove makeup. It takes off makeup with no problem. This does leave an oily residue but I always wash my face after so I kind of ignore that. I have already repurchased this and I still love it.

Bath and Body Works Wild Apple Daffodil

There isn’t much to say about this lotion. I think everybody pretty much knows that the bath and body works lotions are pretty good lotions. Their normal lotions are all pretty much the same lotion just in different scents. I would not repurchase this scent again, though. It was pretty boring in my opinion. Their pink lemonade scent is my favorite right now.
