This isn't my typical post. Usually when I'm not testing a product I won't talk negatively about it either because I have no reason to do that. However, lately there has been some real eye roll moments of new releases. So therefore, I'm going to give a few that I just don't understand, that are childish, and that I won't be buying at all.
Let's do a round up of products that I'm loving lately. I'll do makeup in this one and skincare in the next one that way it's not super long and I can talk about the products a little bit more.
I'll be the first to tell you I'm not the biggest Too Faced fan. I haven't liked a product of theirs since the original Chocolate Bronzer came out which was YEARS ago. I'll be honest if I see one more mythical themed collection come out I'm going to scream. It seems like Too Faced does that left and right. However, the "Natural" line isn't childlike toy makeup thank God. It's actually super pretty and heavy with a lace detail inside. Some might think it's too "old" for the line, I think it's a fantastic turn in a good direction so far.
I got sent an Influenster box to test out the Grande Lash products from Grande Cosmetics, which is a Mascara, Primer, and MD Lash Serum. I've tried many serums so I wasn't super hopefully but I did like that the mascara and primer both contributed to your lashes growing faster or at the very least looking better. I've been using it for a month. So let's talk about it.
Sephora has been doing weekly sales but they always have a pretty decent selection of sale products in general. Ulta does plenty of sales but for this post specifically it's products I've seen in their sale sections. I also stuck with makeup for this one. I like for skincare to be something I can personally recommend.
If there is one brand that I use and talk about the most that would probably be JD Glow Cosmetics. They just absolutely blow me out of the water every time and I do not understand why more people aren't talking about them honestly. So let's get into my absolute favorites from this brand.
Recently I've gotten quite a few makeup products and seeing as I talk a lot about skincare on here it seems, I thought it'd be nice to discuss them briefly and let you know how it's going.
Makeup doesn't have to be fancy. I'm so happy to see the days gone where drugstore makeup really looked atrocious. So glad to not have to go and choose just one thing from the Clinique counter (because it was the least pricey at the time) help your makeup when it really didn't, but we all have that mint green compact didn't we girls? So dang glad to see more affordable brands coming into Sephora and indie brands making a huge impact thanks to online availability. So I compiled a list of my least expensive but favorite products for as many category's as I could. I think I pretty much have them all.
I've been playing with the Natasha Denona Diamond Blush palette for about 3 weeks. I didn't know if I wanted to review it or not because I genuinely got it for myself and I picked the Citrus one because I loved that gold/yellow highlight over the coral pink blush. I already knew there would be things I didn't like about it so that's what gave me pause briefly.
OK. WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE GLITTER OVERLOAD PEOPLE!? Listen, I know that we've shared plenty of articles and discussed this a few times already but apparently the brands aren't getting the message. QUIT PUTTING GLITTER IN PRODUCTS!!!! I'm down for loose glitter pigments for the eye, I'm ok with glitter eye shadows or oversprays of glitter in my eyeshadow. BUT I DO NOT WANT GLITTER ALL OVER MY FACE AND THEN IN MY SKINCARE AS WELL. ITS A "NO" ON BOTH CATEGORIES.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
