MAKEUP ROUTINE | My Go-To “I Tried” Look Part 2

DSC01667

While I like being adventurous with my makeup once in a while, I’m a lazy girl, as I’ve already said a bunch of times, so most of the time I just default to a variation of the same look. In this post, I’ll be sharing my usual look for when I want to look like I actually tried – this would most likely be for when I know I’ll be in pictures, or for a nicer dinner/outing.

While I was writing this, I tried to include as many different products as I could to show that the same general look can be achieved with a variety of products 🙂 Because of this, the post ended up being extremely long, so I decided I’d split it into two posts. This post will focus on the eyes and lips, and if you missed the first part, click here.

HAUL + Shopping Tips | Glossier

IMG_8239

As I said in my previous post, 2017 really was the year of Glossier. There were so many new releases that I almost couldn’t keep up! Each release was exciting, but I wanted to hold off on getting anything until I used up some of my existing inventory of beauty products. A couple of months ago, I was finally at a point where I wouldn’t feel like I wasn’t hoarding if I purchased new things, so I went ahead and hauled a whole bunch of stuff.

Keep reading to see what I got! I also included a few tips for shopping on Glossier’s site 🙂

ANTI-HAUL | Winter 2017

With all the temptation and spending that comes with the holiday season, I thought it’d be nice to balance my Sephora haul (and other upcoming hauls…) with an anti-haul.

Although I’ve gotten a lot better about making more informed, thought-out purchases in the last couple of years, this anti-haul will also be a good reminder to myself that money not spent is better than money spent on a product I wouldn’t otherwise use or want to try.

Before I begin with the anti-haul, I have to admit that I went ahead and purchased the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial (1.69 oz, $80). I was partially motivated by maintaining my Rouge status, but mainly, it seems like a universally loved product, and is unique enough that I probably wouldn’t find a dupe easily, if at all. I’m excited to try it and share my thoughts on it with you 🙂

REVIEW | Origins GinZing SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer

I was so excited when Origins released their SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer (1.7 fl oz, $38) – I have been looking for a good SPF for a while, and I’m a big fan of Origins’ GinZing line, especially the Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer (1.7 fl oz, $28.50) and the Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff (0.5 fl oz, $31). Origins just happened to be having their Friends and Family sale, so I purchased this without much hesitation.
