Review & Swatches: Soap & Glory Multi Color Blush Brick in Peach Party

I went insane when I saw that Soap & Glory makeup was available in Ulta. Their bath and skincare products used to be at Target, but then went away for years. I got a couple of things from them, but the one I immediately used was Peach Party. It is a "Multi-Colour Blush Brick" that contains peach, gold, copper, and pink shades to create a beautiful bronzey peachy glow on the cheeks. Peach Party contains 7.5 grams / 0.26 ounces of product and retails for $15.

Review & Swatches: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation in Light-Medium Honey

The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation in Light-Medium Honey is my latest foundation purchase. The claims include being a lightweight, full coverage foundation that also helps hydrate the skin. There's a small amount of SPF (non-chemical SPF15) in the foundation and so I wouldn't wear just this in the summer for my only sun protection product. There is 30 mL / 1 fl oz of product and it retails for $39.

Review & Swatches: Lancome Juicy Shakers in Wonder Melon and Vanilla Pop

The Lancome Juicy Shakers were one of the launches I was the most excited about and they are bi-phase pigmented infused lip oils. As you know, I'm a huge lip oil lover since I have dry lips. I've also been into sheerer lip products lately as they're easier to wear at work. It was hard to just choose two, but the two colors I got were Wonder Melon and Vanilla Pop so that I could try one light color and one dark color. They each contain 0.25 fl oz / 6.5 ml of product and retail for $21.

Review: Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack in Strawberry, Green Tea, and Black Tea [Pink Bird Box]

The latest Etude House Pink Bird Box included the Bubble Tea Sleeping Packs! It's the first only skincare Pink Bird Box that I've received and they're incredibly adorable. There are three "flavors" and they are Strawberry, Green Tea, and Black Tea.

If you were to buy them individually, each sleeping pack retails for $13.20 and contains 172 grams of product but you can also buy them in a 3 pack for $39.60. You can buy these or any of their products on the Etude House global website here!

Each sleeping pack targets certain skin care concerns, but they all have the same concept to give your skin more moisture and elasticity throughout the night. For fragrance, I was expecting them to smell strongly of their respective flavors but it was more subtle and it was mixed in with a more stereotypical "skincare" smell.

Collection Clear Out: Foundations

I've somehow collected quite a bit of foundation and I'm not sure what happened. I was pretty good for awhile and only had 2-3 on hand for when the seasons changed or when I wanted a specific finish. I only have one face and so I definitely need to cut back. Some of them have also expired and so those definitely need to be dealt with.

Oh yeah, I should probably address the variance in coloring and what I match. I'm about a MAC NC35, but with more yellow tones. I have the Pro Longwear Concealer in NC35 and it's a bit too beige to be a perfect match. My best match is probably between the L'oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in 105 Natural Beige and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 54 Beige. I tend to buy foundations a bit lighter because it's easier to adjust them darker than to adjust it lighter but I also apparently play it risky and buy foundations online.
