REVIEW | Glossier Generation G Lipstick


For me (and probably a lot, if not all, of the beauty community), this year has been the year of Glossier. I had initially tried a couple of their products to mediocre results, but have since come to enjoy those after revisiting them. With this renewed interest in Glossier, I bit the bullet and hauled a few items (look out for that post!) that I had been eyeing through their Instagram, including this Generation G (0.07 oz, $18) lipstick in Zip, a poppy red.

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.

REVIEW | MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation

Full size of Y345 in the middle, with two cute deluxe samples of darker shades on either side.

I hadn’t been expecting anything else from Influenster this year, especially after that generous Posh VoxBox I received a few months earlier. So, needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered I would have the opportunity to try this foundation.

FAVORITES | August 2017

In the blink of an eye, it’s already September, and we’re heading into Labor Day weekend and the end of summer. With that in mind, I thought it’d be nice to start a favorites series before summer comes to a complete end.

These posts will primarily be on beauty favorites, but if I have any fashion or other lifestyle favorites, I will include those as well. For this month, I have a fashion love that isn’t included in the post image – continue reading to see what it is! 🙂

REVIEW | Urban Decay Brow Tamer


I bought the Urban Decay Brow Tamer (0.15 oz, $20) a while ago after I heard a Youtuber talk about it (I forget who), but I only busted it out recently because I had finally let go of my long expired Benefit Gimme Brow (0.1 oz, $24). I’ve used the Brow Tamer enough times now that I feel like I can give a fair review of it.

AT A GLANCE | The Ordinary

From top down, left to right: (1) High-Spreadability Fluid Primer, (2) Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG, (3) Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, (4) Magnesium Ascorbyl Phospate 10%, (5) Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, (6) “Buffet”, (7) Serum Foundation in 2.1 Y

The Ordinary has been all over the internet, but for those of you who don’t know, it’s an affordable, cruelty-free skincare line under the Canadian company Deciem, which is “an umbrella of brands focused on advanced functional beauty”.

My brother had been pushing me to try The Ordinary products for a while, but I never really kept his recommendation in mind. Then, a couple months ago I went to visit him for his graduation, I got to see and hear about the products in person. They finally caught my attention, and when I came back from my trip, I took the plunge and bought quite a handful of their products to try.

HAUL | Nordstrom Anniverary Sale 2017


I hadn’t been planning on getting anything during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year, but a few deals caught my eye that were so good I couldn’t resist. Here’s what I purchased:

REVIEW | IPKN Twinkle Lips

Processed with VSCO with nc preset

The IPKN Twinkle Lips was part of a K-Beauty box I purchased from Birchbox a couple of years ago – I just never got around to it until recently, so this is by no means a new product.

REVIEW | Posh VoxBox

From top down, left to right: (1) AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Turban, (2) Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner, (3) LASHFOOD BROWFOOD Aqua Brow Powder + Pencil Duo, (4) Julep Boost Your Radiance Reparative Rosehip Seed Facial Oil, (5) Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift, (6) Sigma Beauty Aura Powder, (7) Sigma Beauty F40 Large Angled Contour Brush

I was fortunate enough to receive the generous Posh VoxBox from Influenster a couple of weeks ago, and thought it’d be great to include reviews of those products here.

For those of you who don’t know what Influenster is, it’s an online/app community where you can post reviews or read other people’s reviews, and receive free products in VoxBoxes to test based on social media influence and completion of certain campaigns available to participate in on the site. Influenster predominantly features beauty products, but there are also food, health, pet products, and more. It’s easy to sign up, too – just link your social media accounts, answer some snaps to determine your interests, and you’re ready to go. If you’re interested, check it out here (x).

And without further ado, let’s get onto the product reviews:
