Makeup Collection | Playing Favorites with Lipsticks

What can I say. I'm extra and indecisive and there are 15 lipsticks in this favorite lipsticks post. This post is just about lipsticks too and I didn't even include lip tints, oils, gloss, and etc. Yeah, I have a problem. Lipstick is probably my favorite makeup product and it was the first thing I was obsessed with when I first got into makeup. While I do have other favorites, these shades and/or lines are the ones I usually look at first before narrowing it down even more depending on my outfit. 

Over time, I've even found enough colors in a line that I've declared the whole line a favorite as well. That's why there are multiple colors from the same line/brand in this post if that makes things better...

Review: Bonvivant Botanical Pure Rose Cleansing Foam, Real Rose Oil Toner, and Rose Sheet Masks

I swear, Memebox has the most perfect timing for the Memebox Ambassador boxes! They kindly sent me some new skincare to test out and it's all about roses and hydration. I normally have dry/dehydrated skin but fall and winter really makes my skin look and feel more dry and dull. The box Memebox sent me included the Bonvivant Botanical Pure Rose Cleansing Foam*, Pure Rose Toner*, and Rose Mask Packs*. If you're interested in all three, there's also a set you can purchase here from the Memebox website for $30 and it even includes a cute bear head band! You can also buy them separately and I'll include those links in the reviews!

Review & Demo: O-lens Hi-Del Silicone Hydrogel Lenses in Magic Grey

PinkIcon recently reached out to me and asked if I was interested in testing out colored lenses and as you can see, I said yes! It's been awhile since I've reviewed lenses and I also ran out of the grey daily lenses I sometimes wore. The lenses I will be reviewing in today's post are the O-lens Hi-Del Lenses Silicone Hydrogel in Magic Grey* and they last for approximately 6 months. You can buy these lenses on the PinkIcon website here for $64.

Easy Peasy Products for the Morning Rush

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I've been posting more infrequently and it's mostly because of some work things. I've been putting in more hours and so I'm having less time to take pictures and write up reviews. With less hours, I've also changed up my morning weekday makeup routines and choices to get ready quicker but still look presentable. 

I don't actually use all 12 products pictured, but I wanted to give alternatives to create an easy peasy morning look. When I'm rushing, I usually reach for multi-use and easy to apply products.

Mini Review & Swatches: The Burberry Beauty Box for 2016 (Blush in Cameo, Lip Velvet Lipstick in Rosewood, and Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base)

Last year, Burberry released a Beauty Box with some deluxe sized minis of some of their best sellers and it introduced me to two of my favorite products. This year, Burberry is doing it again and released another beauty box! They switched out the lipstick and blush color, but the mini of the kabuki brush and Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance No. 01 is the same. The whole set retails for $32 and keeps going in and out of stock on the Sephora website here.

Review & Swatches: Etude House Play 101 Blending Pencils in 11, 12, and 13

When Etude House first released the Play 101 Pencils, I really wanted them to create a bigger (but still smaller than the sticks) version like other cream eyeshadow sticks on the market. My wish came true and the Etude House Play 101 Blending Sticks were released! I prefer this size over the smaller/thinner pencils for the eyes and face since they're quicker to use. The colors I chose were 11, 12, and 13 and they all have the "jewel" finish. They individually contain 1.1 grams / 0.04 ounces each (for colors #1-14) and retail for around ~$7-$10 depending on where you buy they from.
