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.

Hi, Everybody! I hope everyone had a wonderful week. Today I wanted to talk about a face mask that I have been enjoying. It is on of the L’Oreal pure-clay masks. I picked up the exfoliating and refining mask with red algae. Lately, I’ve been feeling like my skin has been on the dry side so I like the exfoliation. All the masks in this line are made with 3 different kinds of clay. It doesn’t really say anywhere what those clays are. I wish that they made it more obvious on the packaging somewhere of what the clays are. Each different mask is enhanced with something. The one I picked up is enhanced with red algae extract. They also have masks that are enhanced with charcoal and another one enhanced with eucalyptus. L’Oreal has only advertised these 3 in the line but I noticed on their website they have another one that’s blue. The blue one is enhanced with seaweed. I would like to get all of the masks in the line. Apparently, in the red one, the exfoliant is volcanic rock which is pretty cool.
-“addresses rough skin and deep clogged pores”
– “polished pore-minimized, smooth complexion”
-“refined and smooth skin”
-“imperfections are less visible”
What I’ve noticed
-love the packaging
-skin does look smooth and healthy
-does not help my acne or my pores
So I was a little disappointed that this didn’t do much in terms of cleaning out my pores. However, I do enjoy how healthy my skin looks after I use it. I definitely want to try the other masks and see how wells those work. To be honest I probably won’t buy this one again once it’s empty. I’m sure I can find a mask that makes my skin look and feel the same and also cleans out my pores. Let me know if you guys have had any experiences with these masks and what you feel. If you want to check out the line you can click here. Each mask is about $13. Thank you for hanging out with me and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Hello, everybody! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Yesterday was the 4th of July, which means we set off a lot of fireworks and ate a lot of food. It was a great day off from work but now it’s back to the real world. Anyway, I have some products that I’ve used that straight up disappointed me.
Ulta Contour Trio- This was the very first thing that I bought when I decided to try contouring. The darkest shade isn’t too bad. The other two don’t have any pigmentation at all. I used it for a while until I got some better highlighters and contouring products. There’s actually a lot of Ulta brand products that I like but this is not one of them.
Ulta Lip Sugar Scrub- The sugar in this scrub is almost nonexistent. That’s all there really is to say about it. It didn’t scrub my lips at all.
E.L.F. Concealer Palette- The color correcting shades in this work really well. I realized that I don’t really like color correcting. It feels like an unnecessary step.The concealer shades are terrible. They don’t conceal all the well and feel heavy on the skin. I love E.L.F. but just not this palette.
Urban Decay Retractable Lipstick Brush- This brush came in the Vice Lipstick Palette. I love this palette and if you want to see my review on it, you can click here. The bristles on this brush completely fell off. I don’t know if it was the way I was cleaning it but I was kind of mad that it fell apart on me.
Pacifica Eyeshadow in Ethereal- I got this eyeshadow in an Ipsy package a very long time ago. It has no pigmentation. It disappears once it’s put on the lid. I’ve heard from other people that Pacifica’s makeup isn’t the best. I enjoy their skincare line though.
Can you believe that it is already July?! Very soon I’ll be back in school for my last semester. I’ve been so relaxed with just having to work that I don’t want it to end. This month had a couple of exciting changes. I got bangs which I love. I pretty much had bangs all growing up and I wanted a hair change without going shorter. In the same week, I also got a Hamster. I have a female long haired Syrian hamster and her name is Zoidy. Zoidy is an unusual name that most people are confused by. Honestly, it’s because I wanted to name my hamster after Zoidberg from Futurama because I love that character. So I shortened it with just Zoidy. I love her so much and she’s just now getting comfortable with me holding her. She loves to explore and could probably spend hours in her ball if possible. I’m also going to be changing my Saturday posting day to Sunday because I rarely work Sundays. Anyway, I don’t have a whole lot but let’s talk about my favorites this month.
Yes to Tomatoes Detox Charcoal Wipes- These wipes smell so good. They kind of smell like a light cologne. Also, the color of these wipes is black instead of the usual white. They aren’t the best probably if you have sensitive skin but I still love them. I got this at Target for $6.
L’Oreal Red Algae Pure-Clay Mask- I have been wanting to try these masks forever. This is the exfoliating and refining mask. I really like how soft my skin feels after I use it. My skin feels soft and looks healthy. I also got this at Target for $10.
NYX Ultimate Palette in Warm Neutrals- There aren’t a lot of warm colors in my makeup collection and I have been wanting some new shadows to play with. These eyeshadows are really easy to work with and really pigmented. I will for sure do a whole post for this soon. I just want to play around with it so far. I got this at Ulta for $18.
Favorite Show- American Dad. I know that is so random. I recently started it and it was so funny that I got hooked.
Favorite Song- Stay by Zedd and Alessia Cara. Please leave me music suggestions! I need some new stuff to listen to.
