My New Favorite Foundation

June 18, 2017

Summer is almost here and that means it's that time again where I struggle to find a foundation that'll last on my skin. I've tried almost every single foundation that claims it's best for oily skin, and I've tried so many mattifying primers as well. The foundation and primer would work for a week, and then afterwards it seems to just stop working. I consider my skin oily, but occasionally I get rough patches here and there. When I heard about MAC Cosmetics' Next to Nothing foundation I wasn't all that interested because MAC foundations usually break me out. I was also told by an employee that this foundation was more luminous and not the best for oily skin, but I wanted to give it a try anyways. Let me say that I am completely shocked at how this foundation wore on my skin.

Kate Somerville Eradikate Mask

Stress + problematic skin? That's nothing new, especially now that the semester is coming to an end. Whenever I'm stressed out, I find that I get more of those pesky little break outs. I've been a fan of Kate Somerville products for years now, and you know I love the Eradikate treatment (blog post). So of course, I was pleased to find out that Kate Somerville came out with a mask!

Adding a Liquid Highlighter to my Routine

April 21, 2017

I'm so obsessed with highlighters, and I'm glad to see so many brands coming out with new releases. I've tried getting into cream highlighters but they always look patchy on my skin even if I use it before foundation. When the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter released, I was really excited for it and ordered it right away.

Contouring? It was a trend I never thought I'd get into. I remember a few months ago, I didn't even know how to contour. Now contouring is a part of my everyday routine. I own so many contour powders (ok, maybe just 3) and I think I've found my holy grail product.

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

This has been one of the most raved about foundations this year. So many people have been into stick foundations, and I did jump on that bandwagon too with the Anastasia Beverly Hills stick foundation. After hearing all the great reviews on this Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick I knew that I had to give it a try.
