So while we're all quarantined and what not from Covid-19. It's a good time to catch up on things. It's also a great time to organize. I recently got a fantastic palette that we're going to talk about today that is more like a book than a palette and it's 72 empty magnetic pan slots. It's by Coloured Raine and it's called the Book of Shades. Which, can I just say, I love the name.
Today I'm finally talking about my massive bath products haul. I've been putting this off and thanks to that a lot of these products, which were holiday exclusives, are gone. This is over the span of a couple months, so this is more of a collective haul. The products I got duplicates of are the ones that I buy extras of because they're going to sell out or discontinue, they might be on sale, etc. Also, I like buying from indie brands the most when I can. Here's a spoiler 9 times out of 10 the indie brands that I like are FAR BETTER than your commercial/big bath product dedicated companies. I mean leaps and bounds better and a lot of times not as expensive, have better shipping time, and sometimes free shipping .
So far this year I've been really excited about new products, in particular new makeup products. What kicked it off was really the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol. 1 palette. I'm kinda revamping and decluttering my makeup collection some, especially with palettes and only keeping the formulas that I really love and what I use the most. So today I'm going to specifically talk about the Tati Beauty palette and let you see how it's laid out and what it can do.
Greetings everyone. Each year I do a Valentine's Day gift guide for yourself, ideas for your significant other, or a galentine's gift for your friends. This year is going to be no different. I'm going to try and broaden the scope some and not talk about skincare and makeup only though. None of this is sponsored.
Alright guys, there's a new trend that is supposed to take over 2020 and concealers in general. It's basically moving away from really high matte coverage concealer into a more luminous look. So there's a lot of concealers that are "brightening" concealers coming out right now. I read about the "new trends for 2020" online and this one caught my eye. I personally would love to see people moving away from the really high coverage concealer and baking the face. It looks good in pictures but trust and believe in person it is too much for a lot of people. Plus it's a lot of work. I would love to see a more "fresh" look. So I picked up one that was mentioned in the article which is Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand. This won't be the only concealer I try within this trend, it's just where I'm going to begin exploring this new move.
Alright, if you're like me you don't take part in the "January No Buy" because there's so many good holiday sets still available and some of them are on sale. My birthday is also in January (the 29th actually) so of course I look for those good deals, and also take the time to treat myself to something I've wanted for a long time. You may get gift cards, etc as well. So I've put together some things that I've gotten that I think are really amazing that might help you with ideas of what to get yourself.
Happy 2020 guys! It's been a while since my last blog post. As you know, I've been taking some time away from everything and just focused on the holidays and shutting everything off, in a way, to focus on family. I hope you guys had a great holiday season. I thought it'd be nice to kick off 2020 with a collective haul post, things I've picked up after the holidays that went on sale, and some brand new things for 2020. I cashed in my points with ULTA and took advantage of the Sephora sale on sale event.
Allure box for December is really good. It's another collab. They done this with Anastiasia Beverly Hills with the owner Anastasia Soare on the pamphlet. As you know I've discussed ABH products many times, they recently have started a new line or "brand within the brand" which is the Norvina line, who is Anastasia's daughter. I definitely enjoy 80% of their products there have been some flops for me but in general I've always been a fan. So, seeing this collab made me very happy. Although I have several of the products, that doesn't mean it's not a good box.
Alright guys. I'm now coming to you with some gift ideas that aren't dedicated to certain retailers and not fully beauty related. There will of course be some in this but I'm going to talk about other products as well, that make great gifts in my opinion. I've compiled my list after quite a long time thinking about it, also asking my friends for their thoughts on what would make a great gifts for them personally.
ULTA gift guide is up next. They're always having sales of course and marking items down. What I've really loved about them for the last 2 years or so, is that they're taking on more indie brands that are popular within the beauty community. They've stepped up in a major way, plus all your purchases give you points which convert to cash.
