Ofra Cosmetics Collabs
I got a package from Ofra Cosmetics the other day and I must say I am so impressed. I got the Kathleen Lights collaboration, Miami Fever Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks. I also got the DupeThat Collaboration which is one of the two highlighters in You Dew You.
This is the highlighter. It's a bit darker than I thought it would be in the pan. It is gorgeous though. It's like a golden peach highlight. It's kinda comparable to Champagne Pop but it has more color if that makes since. The shimmer on Champagne Pop is so bright and intense you don't actually see the color all that much. This though has a beautiful sheen but it's a really pretty golden/peach glow and you can see that on the skin and I really love that. It gives just a touch of color along with highlight. Not to mention the formula is so soft. Its so creamy. I'm thoroughly impressed. It gives most of, if not all, my highlighters a run for their money. I believe it's $25. There's also another shade that looks a bit more silver-ish to me but none the less gorgeous.
This is the highly talked about collab with Kathleen Lights called Miami Fever. This formula feels amazing. It smells like the discontinued awesome Sephora Collection Lip Creams before they re done them. It has that "mousse like" feel to it. It's not drying, it's very comfortable and the shade is so unique. It's like a burnt orangey brown. It's perfect for fall. This doesn't crumble on the lips or anything. Basically it's amazing, there ya have it. There was a coupon code "Kathleen40" for 40% off your order. I don't know if it still will work but definitely worth trying. The liquid lipsticks are around $20. I want every single color now that they offer. I can't wait to try more of Ofra Cosmetics, I really feel like they're a force to be reckoned with in the makeup community.
How To: Soothing Irritated Skin
Halloween is over. My skin hurts. I've spent the day trying to get it to stop burning and feeling so dry. So I thought, why not post about what I do in such circumstances.
This is not my everyday routine. This is when my skin needs some help. My normal routine is much more simple.
First I spray through out the day with Caudalie Grape Water spray. It's a spray "toner' that soothes and moisturizes skin. It's good for sensitive skin and it is very dewy. It feels so good on the skin. It's probably my most necessary product
Next I used a soothing face mask. I used Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask today. I rarely use this but I had ran out of Sephora sheet masks and eye masks and desperately needed something so I used this. I would've rather had a Sephora mask but this works well too.
After that I used thick moisturizer. I used L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream. It's very thick and feels (and smells) amazing. I used it this morning and at night.
For my eyes I used Origins Ginzing Refreshing eye cream this morning. They were looking pretty rough so I used this to depuff and birghten the area it's also kinda thick. Then at night I used a thicker eye cream from Clarins called Super Restorative Eye Concentrate.
Lastly I used Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I rarely use this because the smell is intense. The reason I do use it thought is because of the Blue Tansy and Chamomille oils in it. They're whole purpose is to soothe. This also has Retinol but the Blue Tansy keeps the skin from getting irritated by it. I used the oil first at night before I spray my toner, or use my moisturizers, since it's a serum.
Other than that, I just try to get a good night's sleep and hydrate as much as possibly. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I do plan on using the Cover FX Calming Primer tomorrow along with a sponge to apply my foundation so that it's not rubbing on the skin. I also won't be using glitter for a little while as well lol.
Some of these products are really expensive some other good alternatives are: Argan Oil, Origins Night A Mins moisturizer, Sanitas Oil Free Moisturizer, Aloe Vera gel, Sephora sheet and eye masks ($5) , and Witch Hazel.
