RealHer Empowering Makeup Review | PR

**I received these products complimentary from RealHer, but all opinions are my own.  A couple of months ago, I received a very exciting package from a brand I hadn’t tried before. I will be honest and say that I don’t try “non-mainstream” brands very often. My makeup shopping is limited to Sephora, Ulta, Walmart, and Target, so unless the brand is available at any of these stores, I’ve probably never…

Soy Face Cleanser | Fresh Beauty Review

For the longest time, I have wanted to try a different type of cleanser. My preferred makeup removal method is micellar water and a cotton pad, but it produces so much waste. I go through so many cotton pads, I wanted to give something new a try. If you haven’t heard of Fresh Beauty, then you should Google them. Their Soy Face Cleanser is extremely popular among social media influencers…

Perfect Toiletry Bag for The Girl On-The-Go

Toiletry-bag-era81

**This post is in partnership with ERA81, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I received the toiletry bag complimentary from ERA81. Where I put on makeup and where I keep my makeup are not one and the same. At least once a year, I also travel to Colombia for a couple of weeks. Figuring out the best place to carry my makeup has always been a struggle. I…

Doing Research on YouTube Beauty Creators

As some of you may know, I am currently a graduate student at the University of Oregon. One of the things I love to do, besides doing my makeup, is doing research. Right now, I am looking at the relationships we, as audience, build with our favorite YouTubers. I would really appreciate it if you could take 5-10 minutes to complete a quick survey for a paper I am working…

Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder | Review

hourglass veil setting powder

If you’re anything like me, you have struggled with finding the right setting powder for you. I hate the way powder looks on my skin, or I guess, I hate my skin looking powdery. I’ve tried THE most popular setting powder, the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder and it just sits on top of my skin. For the last couple of months, I have limited my use of powder as…

MatteLast Lips Review | Pixi Beauty

Up to this point, I hadn’t tried much of Pixi’s makeup. The only other makeup product I had tried was the Endless Silky Eye Pen. This eyeliner is perfect for the waterline, it is so soft and pigmented. The next product I received in a PR package, but I have loved and used these so much! If you haven’t tried some of Pixi’s recent releases, I definitely recommend you do.…

Naked Heat vs Tartelette Toasted | Palette Review

Two palettes I had my eyes on were the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted palette and the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. Both palettes are filled with beautiful warm-toned shadows, and that’s the kind of look I like. The first released palette was the Urban Decay Naked Heat. I found the shades to be beautiful and it received amazing reviews. For some reason, when the Tartelette Toasted palette was released I…

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
•
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
•
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
•
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
•
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
