January Empties

Remember when I said that I would be doing a new format for my empty series? Well, here it is, the moment you all have been waiting for. I decided to show my empties in group photos and flat lays to be able to store more pictures of my products rather than have everything in a single photo. It makes more sens to me this way, since I am a reviewing channel and have been deleting a ton of photos to make room for more photos. I hope you all like this new format. Give me a like if you do!

I might be adjusting the challenge and make it harder. I guess, it all depends upon how much of this stuff I am using up.

Sephora Favorites Set

My dad gave me some money for Christmas, so I poped into my local Sephora inside of JCP and I found this little gem tucked underneath a table out of sight. I found JCP exclusive Sephora Favorites Lip Kit in nude. I am so happy and excited to show you these. I am a nude or pop of color kind of girl. I hate reds and any kind of really dark and vampy color unless it is a really unique color. This kit is right up my alley, so I thought that I would share all of these with you. I seriously have not touched this kit since I bought it, because I was waiting to haul it. LOL. This is the Sephora Favorites Lip Nude-ist Lip Sampler set. It contains a full size lipstick and 5 minis. It cost me $29.75 with tax.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Sake 0.05 oz $8.67

This is the first swatch on the left in both pictures. The first one is in indoor lighting and the second picture was in natural lighting with my window. This lipstick is a third of the full size and I really loves the deep pink, more berry toned color. Indoors, it looks more pink, but in natural, it pulls more berry. It is a perfect at the office color and for just running around doing errands. I love a good nude and this lipstick is very moisturizing.

Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick Backtalk $17

This is a full size lipstick in a nice mauve pink color. I love the purple tones in this lipstick and I also live for matte lip colors. I am very much into mattes right now, so bring on the mattes! I will get a lot of use out of it and it is another great one for the office. Really, all of these are very office friendly. Nothing is too out there. I think this lipstick would flatter a lot of skin tones, but I think it is definitely geared towards more fair skinned people than darker skin tones. I feel a lot of reds are made for darker skin color than for fair ones. I wish I could find a flattering red.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme 1.5 g $10.50

This is almost half of the full size and the iridescence is SO PRETTY. I will be using this as a night time treatment to plump and smooth my lips overnight.  I love the smoothing my lip lines effect more than the plumping. It leaves a beautiful shine and if I really like it, it comes in a pretty purple tint. I will buy almost anything in purple. It is a problem.

Bite Agave Lip Mask about $10

It is almost half of a full size and I could get a few uses out of each little lip mask. Since I use a balm every night, I can easily use this up in February. I’m going to use it up and share my thoughts on it.

Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint Bestie 1 ml $3.34

This is a nice deep brown nude with a hint of pink. I don’t know how I feel about this on my lips, but I like the color better than Birthday Suit which is a little too orange looking on my lips personally. It is so small that I used it once and hit side pan. I bet one month of using this at the office and I can have it almost used up. It holds up well throughout the day. Out of everything, it is the most long lasting.

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss 312 Sugar Sugar $9.34

I love this low maintenance nude glitter gloss. It is so smooth on the lips and looks peachy and juicy on the lips. I would buy a set of these lip glosses if I ever run out of lip gloss. I am not going to be buying much makeup this year. I need to use up what I have before it goes bad and I have way too much. I need to make better decisions and spend my money well. I’s rather buy a fancy serum than a $30 gloss.

The total for these items is $58.85 and I spent $29.75 for it. It is double my investment into the lip shaped box. I think this set was worth it and I will use everything.

With Love,

Selena

VS Haul

Yes, I am finally getting around to showing you my VS haul. I had two $20 off of $40 gift cards and I decided to use them both. I shopped online, but this time, it took TWO WEEKS to ship out and get to me. Like, I got both o my boxes on December 18th and I ordered on it on the 3rd. The good news is that the one clothing item that I bought fits. It is a little big, but I tightened the straps and that seemed to do trick.

My first haul, I only bought 1 thing and I paid $22.50.

VS Satin Romper in Antiquela in Medium

This originally would have been $42.50, so it was a total steal with $20 off. I love the soft purple color and a romper is going to be great in the summer. It’s a shorts and cami combo. I can wear with around the house with a pair of pants and still be decent around my family. It is so comfortable and silky. Hands down my favorite bedtime clothes right now. I love pairing it with my Dr. Seuss Thing 1 and Thing 2 pants.

My second haul, I bought 8 things and I paid $32.52 for a haul that was worth $52.52.

lotion

Pink Coconut Hand Cream, 1.4 fl oz for $5

I bought this hand cream, because I don’t have any and now I have two. It has a pleasant scent and I look forward to trying it out.

wash

Pink Sweet & Flirt 2-in-1 Wash & Scrub, 10.1 fl oz for $4.90

I needed some more body washes and scrubs. This is both, so I think it is a great two in one product and it’ll save time in the shower. I love this scent. The notes are sugar berry and pink grapefruit. It is sweet and a bit tart. It is also purple, which is a huge bonus to me. I should be alright for 2018 now that I have this one and the wash from B&BW. I also have a couple of soaps and a Lush shower jelly. I just didn’t want to be without, but for less than $5, I can forgive myself since it goes for $18 normally.

lotion

Pink Sweet & Flirty Body Lotion, 16.9 fl oz for $7

I didn’t really need a body lotion, but I wanted the matching body lotion and I will use it. I am currently trying to use up my body lotion stash and I hit a slump. I usually can finish an 8 ounce bottle a month. Once the cold weather hit, I haven’t wanted to sit in the cold after a shower or bath and apply body lotion. I need to just suck it up and do it. I know that as soon as it warms up, I’ll be going through my body lotions again. At least, I know that I do clear out at least 6 8 ounce bottles a year. That is 48 fl ounces of lotion a year. Wow. This bottle is almost half that. I should take about 2 months to finish this bottle up. Whenever I use the body wash, I will make sure to use this matching lotion.

face mask

Pink About Last Night Face Mask, 2 for $5

I have never tried a VS face mask before and I was really curious about them. I’ve never spent this much on a face mask, so hopefully I see results. If not, I bought it to try, so it’ll be fun either way.

face mask

Pink Let’s Glow Face Mask, 2 for $5

Again, I bought this for the fun aspect of it. I cannot believe that I spent $10 on 4 sheet masks. It’s that time of year to splurge a little, you know.

VS Martha’s Lip Kit for $15

The liquid lipsticks alone go for $14, so this kit was a no brainer. For just $1 more, I got a lip liner and lip gloss. I got the Velvet Matte liquid lipstick in Adored, the lip pencil in Nearly Nude, and the glitter gloss. I’m a nude lipstick lover, so this will be great. No swatches, because it is my Christmas present to myself. I love the magnetic closure on the box and I’ve never known that VS does makeup before.

That is the end of my VS haul. I hope you guys enjoyed and if you want to see swatches and hear a first impressions on the lip kit or anything that I own, let me know. I’d be happy to give you thoughts with the swatch. Happy Christmas Eve and everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

With Love,

Selena

$200 Before 2018 Update #8

We are on the second to last update for this series on my blog. Looking at what I used up, it really isn’t much, but I remember that I don’t have much of this challenge left. Maybe I used enough to call it completed? My total used up is 19 out of 20 totaling $157.69 out of $200. I only needed to use up $21.15 X2 to call it quits. I wonder if I used up that much. Looking at what I have, I think I have $10 to $5 more to use up in December, but we shall see. I am super excited to see the totals of what I used up.

empties

I used up a perfume sample, so let’s call that $1. $158.69 is the new total. I used up a mini Mark lip gloss that costs $2.49. $161.18 so far. Now, I want to add up the little benefit tubes that I have. I have wrote about them both before on my blog, so I am just going to look up the amounts that I said that they were. The gray tube is worth $8 and the shiny tube is worth $8. Apparently, they both hold 1 gram of product. I throw these away when I got pink eye and the report that these are toxic. I think it’s the reason that I got pink eye in the first place. Now, we are up to $177.18. I don’t think that the mascara will take us there, but it will take us pretty close I think. $12 for the mascara mini, so dadada!!!!! My new total is $189.18, so all I need to use up is $10.82 worth of makeup. I’ve already used up over 20 items, so now I just want to use up the rest of the $200.

I am so ready for my 250 items use up project in 2018 of all beauty related items.

What projects are you starting in the new year?

With Love,

November Empties

Hey guys! Another month gone and Christmas and Dean’s birthday are right around the corner. I had quite a few empties this month, so I was very impressed. I have a ton of reviews to write now in my spare time. I’ve been building the furniture I bought on Black Friday this weekend and I’ll be able to show them soon. I just want to buy some super glue to glue back some broken pieces on my nick knacks so they look good in the pictures that I’ll be taking. I’ll be having two VS hauls coming up soon. So, stay tuned!

I will be busy inventorying my whole collection and making plans for my 2018 year project pan where I want to use up 250 beauty related items next year. There will  be plenty of fun posts in the new year. I’m happy that I’m only doing one project next year. Simplified.

November Makeup Bag

We are half way through November, so I feel like I’m late coming to the party with this. I’m going to do it anyway though. I haven’t been using any of the eye makeup. I got pink eye and then caught a bit of a cold from my son. I’m feeling better, so hopefully I can dabble more into the makeup that I have set aside for the month. Before I get into this month’s picks, I’m going to recap on what happened in October.

I used this blush 5 days a week all month long and I barely scratched the surface of it. I thought for sure that I could pan it or at the very least wear down the imprint. I will bring it back for my December bag, because I really love this blush. It is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I hit pan on my eye gloss and I found out that it wore better without eye primer. I love how this looked on my eyes. It was a nice and easy eye look that was very pretty. It paired great with bold lips. I used up my Cover FX drops. I didn’t make a noticeable dent on the Nars concealer or the Tarte lip paint. I made a bit of progress on the perfume, but I don’t mind because I love the scent on it.

I have used all of these products a few times. I have dabbled in the Hourglass 2016 Holiday Palette and used the finishing powder and blush a few times. I’m trying to use up the Caitlyn lip gloss, because I don’t like lip glosses that are pigmented in dark colors. It smears around like crazy. I only use this at home. I want to use up some perfume samples and work on my Vampire perfume that I love. I’m kinda getting sick of it though. I’ve used the eye shadow once and then got pink eye. I threw out my Benefit Gimmie Brow, because they have been on the news as having TOXIC ingredients. Could be the reason why I got pink eye. I also got rid of my mascara since I got pink eye and I had used that on my eyes that day. I’ve used the foundation once and liked it. It did flake up my moisturizer though. I’m going to try it with primer this week.

monthly

Above is what my daily makeup cabinet looks like. I have a few of my other daily supplies in there like primer, lip treatments, and a purple corrector. I like that it’s not too busy and I can easily reach in for things without knocking anything over.

What do you have in your makeup bag?

With Love,

Selena

Model Co

For Model Co Lip Lacquer in Viva

Lip gloss

I ended up really enjoying this lip gloss a lot and I would be happy if I got it again. I would purchase, but I haven’t found a store that carries this brand around here. The gloss was very pigmented but easy to wear. It was more peachy than pink. I removed the stopper to get out every last drop. It probably had 5 uses after I took the stopper out and now, I get to have the satisfaction of looking at an empty see-through tube. I am happy to have another gloss out of my collection. It gets me one more closer to buying a few lip oils. Has anyone tried a lip oil? I’m interested in the Clarin’s, Too Faced, and YSL lip oils. They seem to be popular.

With Love,

14 Before Fall: Update #2

Just a reminder, this project ends on September 22nd.

Okay, so on the last update I finished 5 products and I need to use up 9 more to call this project a success. I still feel like this is a reachable goal and if I had to guess, I think I’ve used up another 4 or 5 products. I feel like that sounds right but it could be more like 2. I don’t remember exactly what I used up except for 2 products. It could be that 5 other ones are on their last legs. I cannot remember for the life of me. I feel like the results of this post is going to remotivate me to finish up as much as I can by the end of this project.

layout

Last month, I had 14 products in the project and at this update I still have 14 products. I did add 5 more products to the project though. Wondering my progress and what I used up? Then, keep reading. I am not mentioning anything that I used up at the previous update, so if you want to hear about those, go back and read that update.

Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque

mask

I still have yet to touch these. I think I will use one on Sunday. I currently have a pimple on my forehead, so I don’t want to irritate it. Once it’s gone, I will use up one of these packets. I have four masks, so my goal is to use up at least 1 every week.

Medicell Eye Mask Duo

eye mask

I am thinking about using these today, since I don’t feel good enough to wear makeup and that pimple. I don’t know what’s up with me. I’ve felt sick off and on this week. Dean and I have been using the pool every weekend so I haven’t worn eye shadow and other makeup in like a month. lol. So no, update on my pallet this month.

MJCARE Snail Essence Mask

mask

I’m scared, I’m scared, I’m scared. I need to just bite the bullet and try it. If it’s disgusting, I’ll just throw it out. Gawd Hannah, grow up!

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil

IMG_2451

I used this up and I’m not a huge fan of this. A little goes a long way, but I feel that it’s no different from the original, except it’s not a dry oil. I would not purchase this, but I would buy the original again.

Model Co Lip Lacquer in Viva

I used up this gloss and I ended up really liking it. I wouldn’t go out and purchase it. I would gladly use it if I got it again though. I brought in a few replacement lip products to replace it. I cannot believe that I seem to be flying through these.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub

No visible progress on this one. I’ve been using it whenever and I have no intention of using this up. I just wanted to be able to use it freely without interfering with using up other lip products and it hasn’t interfered at all.

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl

I’ve only sharpened this up 1 or 2 times, since I haven’t really been using makeup all that much. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the pool with Dean. I don’t want to worry about wearing makeup in the pool. I’ll probably end up putting this in another project. I don’t think I’ll be able to use this up.

B&BW White Citrus Eau De Perfume

I’m making steady progress with this perfume, but I don’t think I’ll be able to use it up in a month. I’ll try to use it up next summer for sure. I really love the scent, but it doesn’t last. Within an hour, it is gone. Maybe, I’ll try to use it up as a bathroom freshener.

Davines Natural Tech Replumping Hair Filler Superactive

I have completely used this up and I will be replacing it with a different product in this project. This was alright, but it didn’t give me volume. I’m happy to have another mini hair product out of my collection. These minis really pile up and I’m try to go through a couple of full sized hair products right now. Next year, I need to focus on my hair products, which the pile is getting too much. I also have a huge skin care pile right now.

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 8

IMG_2655

I am almost done with this after forgetting about it for a month. I am sure that this will be gone by the next update, since I have been using the pool every weekend. It is very quick to cover my body and head out the door. It is also water resistant which is a plus.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Ph Changing Orange Lip Balm

IMG_2664.JPG

I only have a couple of uses left, so I will call it done for this update since it will be in my August empties. I really liked this balms, but I would not purchase them. They are just okay and I don’t really use balms except at night. I’ve already found my dream balm.

Temptu Highlighter

highlighter

I am almost done with this guy. I’ve been applying it every work day and it gives a strong glow to the cheeks while still keeping it work appropriate. My company’s policy is really loose though. You can have purple hair and no one would bat an eye lash.

I’m bringing in four replacement items. Three lip products and a backup highlighter. Why 3 lip products, you ask? Because two of them are so mini, I think they might only have about 2 weeks worth of products each at most. I cannot find the photo of the highlighter, but I am also throwing in a spray in hair replacement. I’ll update you guys on the progress in my finale and you’ll know exactly what these products are. I felt like the post is getting VERY long.

So, I finished up 4 during this update bringing up the total to 9 items used up. I just have to use up 5 more to call this project a success. I can do this! With the face masks that would be four and a lip product would make it 5. I’m going to see if I can finish up more!

$200 Before 2018 Update #4

I feel like I used up quite a bit in July and so far, I feel like August hasn’t been as successful. We shall see next month. But this update is a big deal for me. I finished a ton of perfume samples and I am still steadily going through them. I’m using up all of my sprayer samples first and then going onto the dabbing ones. I finished up 4 deluxe sized makeup products as well. It’s very hard to go through a lot of makeup, so I’m very happy with the results that I see here. So at the end of June, I used up 7 out of 20 products with the total adding up to $78.74 out of $200. Let’s see what I can add to that.

Perfume samples: 5 = $5

perfume

I enjoyed how sweet the Brittany Spears Midnight Fantasy is. I would pick that one up if I came across it as Marshalls, but I’m on a no perfume buy. It is so crisp and fresh and sweet like candy. I just love it. If I see a bottle at Walmart, I might just have to buy it. The rest of the samples were okay, but nothing that I would purchase for myself. There were no scents that I couldn’t wear. I just didn’t care for them.

Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer Conditioning Lip Treatment = $8

makeup

I liked using this as a night time treatment, but I would not purchase it. It felt grainy if I got it on my teeth and I don’t like that sensation. This lasted me forever! I already found my dream night time lip balm, so I’m just trying to use up my balms.

Model Co Lip Lacquer in Viva = $6

makeup

I really enjoyed using this and the peachy color pay off. I took out the stopper and used up every last drop. I would not purchase this, but I am glad to have moved it out of my collection. I’d much rather buy a lip oil. I thought that I wouldn’t like this though and I did. It had a lot of pigment for a gloss and I used this up at work so very appropriate.

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm = $7.20

makeup

I am considering buying this in the full size. I want to use up the rest of my primers first, but when I get down to 1, I really want to buy this. It was very moisturizing and gave my skin a nice glow. I used this mostly on its own and my skin looked flawless with this on. I got a lot of compliments on my skin when wearing this. I need to use up what I have first though. I’ll revisit this next year.

DERMAdoctor DD Cream = $8.76

makeup

This was WAY too dark to use on my face, so I used this on my legs when I wore a skirt to work. My legs looked tanned and toned. It was too dark for my face, but not only that, it was too greasy as well. I’m glad that I used it up and it’s gone. I need to do this with the rest of the creams that I bought/received that are way too dark for my face. It also didn’t moisturize my legs very well. I cut it with some body lotion to help with that.

Okay, I am pretty impressed with the monetary value that I used up in July. I have used up 11 out of 20 makeup items with the total being $113.70 out of $200. I am over halfway there now! I really think that I have a chance at completing this project. Next year, instead of project pans and this series, I will be doing a Finish 100 by 2019 and monthly makeup bags. This series is going so well that I want to pull in all of my other categories like hair and skin care for next year. The makeup bags will be fun, too. Every month, I’ll focus on different items to use up.

With Love,

Selena

14 Before Fall: Update #1

I am really excited to share my update with all of you on my Fall project pan. I feel like I got a ton accomplished and will have even more in my August update. I feel like with more variety of things to use up my passion for panning really came out. I was enjoying using everything that I had and I think it helps to add products that you just want to use and have fun with. For me, this project isn’t all about panning. It is about enjoying what you have and that’s what I’ve been doing. In the process, I have used up a few items and got close to finishing a few more. Just a reminder, this project ends on September 22nd.

IMG_2445

 

I have 14 products in the picture above and I started out with 16 items. You might think that I only finished up two products, but I believe that I added three more items to the project. How many did I end up using up? Keep reading to find out.

Tony Moly Red Wine Mask Sheet Pore Care

mask

I have used used this sheet mask and serum up, hence the strike through the title. This was a great mask. It was really wet and I had enough serum to put on my face for DAYS afterward. The whole mask never really soaked up into my face and I wore it for about an hour. It took another 30 minutes for the rest of the serum to sink into my skin after I took the mask off. This should definitely be saved for a pamper night.

Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque

mask

This has two one time use packets that I have yet to use. Next time I want a clay mask, I will use this instead of my tube or jar versions. I just need these out of my collection.

Soo Ae Charcoal Clay Bubble Mask

mask

This mask made my face super ticklish and it really bubbled up. I will be repurchasing this. Do they have different kinds of bubble masks? These are so great! It did its job and was super fun. I let it bubble on my face for 15 minutes then I rubbed it into a paste and let that sit for an additional 15. My face never felt so clean and smooth afterwards. It is worth the price of about 2 dollars. I had enough to do my face and my dad’s, but he wasn’t a fan of the tickle.

Medicell Eye Mask Duo

eye mask

I have yet to use this one as well. I’m going to use it on a lazy Saturday or Sunday in the morning when I have time to enjoy them with my coffee. I like to wake up in the morning with a coffee and these seem like they would be refreshing and help with puffy morning eyes.

Yes To Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Paper Mask

mask

I loved the scent of this mask, but it was very thin. I ripped it a little bit trying to open it up. I loved the tingly feeling as well. I would repurchase this one as well as other ones from this brand. It is a decent mask for the price that actually showed me some results.

MJCARE Snail Essence Mask

mask

I’m still scared of this mask, hence why I wore the other sheet masks first. I think it might take me until the end of the project for me to use this one up. Just because I’m terrified of using it and having it smell or something. It was in the multipack that I bought. I am not adventurous enough to have bought this on its own.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer

moisturizer

I love this and I will be repurchasing once I am out of my current creams. I even used this during the day. It soaked right into my skin leaving it hydrated not oily. My skin was less oily while using this product. It is on my repurchase list for sure. I just have to go through a jar and a half and I’ll be onto my way of getting this. It is such a beautiful product, even better than the oil.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil

IMG_2451

I have used up about a fourth of this a little bit goes a long way. I’m sure it will be gone by the next update though. I’m not crazy about this face oil. It’s not as good as I remember or maybe its just this luminous version. I’ll use it up, but I would not purchase this face oil. I haven’t found a good basic night oil yet.

Model Co Lip Lacquer in Viva

I am almost done with this lip gloss. I removed the stopper and using a q-tip to get the product on the bottom tube. I think I’ll be done with it by the end of next week, so I decided to add in another lip product that I cold wear at work once this one is finished. I ended up really enjoying the color on this one. It is more peachy than pink.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub

There is no visible progress in this tube, so I didn’t bother with a new picture. I am really loving the color and am wearing it right now as I type. It is such a fun summer color and I’ll be taking this with me to my trip to Maine tomorrow for sure.

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl

I’m not sure that you can tell a difference but I did sharpen this pencil twice and it needs a second sharpen for sure before I use it tomorrow. I’m going to throw a few basics in my purse to apply when I get to Maine tomorrow. This is something perfect to throw in there. I love this on my lower lash line as a pop of sparkle.

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm

I ended up liking this pore filling primer, but I will not be purchasing it. It’s not as good as the benefit one, but it is more hydrating. I’m on the fence about this one. I might purchase it. It was a very good sample and I enjoyed using it.

B&BW White Citrus Eau De Perfume

I’m making decent progress on this perfume, but I need to use it a little more often if I want to use it up in two months. I don’t think I’ll be able to use it up, but I think I’ll only have about half of what I had remaining by the end of the project. It’s great paired with a stronger scented perfume. I might drag this into the fall paired with a woodsy scent to make it more “Fall” appropriate.

Davines Natural Tech Replumping Hair Filler Superactive

I’ve used a decent amount of this and it will be gone by next update. I use this to spray down my fly aways when I am putting my hair in a slick ponytail or bun. So, I probably use this like 5 days a week. With a young son, I have to have my hair back or risk getting my hair pulled out.

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 8

sun

I totally forgot about this, so I need to use it up. I’ll throw it in my bag for Maine and see if I can use it all up in one go. I don’t like to tan and buy tanning products. I will use this up. I hope I don’t get sunburned though. I’ll make sure to apply this every hour or so.

Out of my original 16 items, I have used up 5 items. So, I am down to 11 products in the project. I have to use up 9 more products to call this project a success. To increase my chances of “winning”, I am adding three more items to my project.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Ph Changing Orange Lip Balm

lip

This lip balm will be replacing the lip gloss at my desk at work. A lip balm is less maintenance than a gloss and I want to change it up a little. I used up the pink version in three weeks, so this might be used up by the next update. I’ll have to think about what lip product I want to try next out of my collection that is work appropriate for the summer.

Temptu Highlighter

I am replacing the Josie Maran primer with this highlighter. It is so beautiful and easy to wear. I wear it to work all last week. I can finish this up easy by the next update. I just pour a squeeze on the back of my hand and tap my brush into it and dab one cheek bone and then the other. It blends out like a dream and doesn’t look too much especially since I powder on top of it. It has an iridescent look to it.

So, I am now up to 13 products, but I only need to finish 9 of them. Can I do it by August? Stay tuned to find out. I’m really pumped that I can do it.

With Love ❤
