A Change in Pace // The Brown Lip

The Brown Lip. 

A few years ago, I would've called anyone crazy if they told me that I would be obsessed with the finding the perfect brown lip. It might have been the 90s kid in me, but I really gravitate to those shades now along with my other favorite - reds. While I'm 90% sure I do have more browns in my collection, these were the ones that were scattered all over my desk for easy access and all ones that I've been wearing all the time when I want some on the nude side.

I'm always really wordy in these kind of posts and so I'll try to be as sweet and short as possible!

Review & Swatches: NARS Cosmetics x Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection

So... whoops? Broke my no buy again. 

I was almost doing well and then I started to see more about the NARS Cosmetics x Charlotte Gainsbourg collection. I wasn't really interested when this collection was first released, and then I read more about how effortless and cool Charlotte Gainsbourg is. I've been dipping my toes back into more natural looks and by reading into what Charlotte's vision for collection, it seemed like some of the products were exactly what I wanted. 

During one of my Nordstrom stops, I purchased the Hydrating Glow Tint in Medium ($36 for 1.7 Ounces / 50 mL), Multiple Tint in Alice ($39 for 0.23 Ounces / 6.7 grams), and Lip Tint in Double Decker ($26 for 0.17 Ounces / 6 mL).  And surprise! Right after that stop, I went back and also picked up the Hydrating Glow Tint in Light. That's already a spoiler for this post! I was pretty happy with the above post and didn't want to re-take it to include the second tube.

Review: Glossier Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen SPF35

I'm so excited about this post since it's about a very exciting new launch from Glossier! About two and a half weeks ago, Glossier sent me the new Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen SPF 35*. I'm not even a brand rep and so I was pretty pumped to be able to test it out before the official launch. I'm also really pumped that they sent this to me for free as a PR sample too. I'm not the greatest with skincare and I mostly go with what feels and superficially looks right, but I'm going to try my best to do this sunscreen justice since it is a good one! Each tube retails for $34 and contains 1 fluid ounce / 30 mL of product.

Balms Away!

I regularly have lip issues and I think I was able to narrow it down to a lip product, but not a ingredient yet. Each time my lips had a reaction, I would desperately search for a better lip balm. So far, I've found many great choices but I've gone back a couple over and over again. Lip products have always been my favorite and lip balms are oddly one of my favorite things to look into.

Review & Swatches: Pony Effect Unlimited Cream Shadow in Heartwarming, High Standards, Future Proof, Beloved, and X-Factor

I was kind of debating whether or not I wanted to do this blog post anymore on the Pony Effect Unlimited Cream Shadows since Pony Effect isn't as readily available in the US anymore, but it's still accessible using other websites. I've also spent forever taking pictures and I don't want to throw that time away. They're also pretty good and that's definition information I want to share! I originally started with Heartwarming and X-Factor and then got High Standards, Beloved, and Future Proof when they were on sale. Each pot retails for around $17 and contains 6 grams of product.
