**I apply these with a dry beauty blender or soft brush**
  • Palladio Matte Blush (peach ice) --this isn't

  • Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Volume Express Mascara (blackest black)
  • As far as eye shadows go, I have been LOVING the NYX Lid Lingerie
I use too many things on my lips to list at the moment. I'll probably make a whole post about this soon. 

Let me know what else you want to read about! I'm sorry I've been so busy lately. We just moved into a new house and I've been busy with work and my apprenticeship. I feel like I'm a little behind so I've been working on that more too. Have a great week!

REVIEW // Glossier

So I gave into the trend and tried Glossier. Not only was every one talking about it and I was seeing it everywhere, but I realllly like the packaging. lol. Now I didn't try the makeup it was more of the skincare because it really seemed to advertise for people with hyper pigmentation and redness on the face. This is something I feel like I have struggled with for SO LONG. All I want is to feel like I can leave the house without makeup and not feel like I just ran a marathon with how pink my cheeks are.

What I purchased and my opinions on the following:

Solution: An exfoliating skin perfecter. It says this is what is supposed to help with the redness by gently exfoliating your skin to create glowy, smooth skin after 4 weeks. Well, I've been using this for about 2 months now and I haven't noticed a difference in my complexion. Honestly, after a couple weeks I started to break out more than usual but then that went away. RIGHT AFTER putting it on I do like the way my skin looks and feels. I do this right before bed. By morning I don't notice or feel any difference in my face. I have normal skin and I don't think this dried it out or made it oily. Now, this is just how I feel. This product may have worked out better for others but I just don't think it's for me.

Milk Jelly Cleanser: Conditioning face wash. I actually really enjoy this. It feels weird when you use it because it really is jelly-like. I feel like it washes most of my makeup off at night and makes my face feel very clean afterwards and wakes me up if I use it in the morning. It also doesn't really have a scent, which I really like for my face cleanser. 

Priming Moisturizer: Buildable hydrating creme. This is a nice moisturizer. It's an okay primer. The smell isn't great but it's nothing strong that lingers after application. I do like how light it is and it is buildable. 

Balm Dotcom: Universal skin salve. I have this in both original and birthday cake. I love this stuff. I love putting it on my lips and I love putting the original one on my elbows because these things get DRY. lol. The birthday cake one smells just like cake and has just a little bit of a shimmer to it, but you can barely see it. I like to put it on my lips right before bed and it makes them feel so luscious!

Overall, I like Glossier. I do feel like it's a little pricey for what it's made out to be but 4 out of the 5 things I purchased I would definitely purchase again. Once again this is my opinion other's may have different ones and that's fine too! :)

My 2017 Favorites

Listen up, ladies. This is going to be a little long because it is a list of my favorite things from the WHOLE 2017 YEAR! Most of these things are products I have DEFINITLEY used in the past and have put in previous "favorites" posts. The majority of this list are things I use on a DAILY basis. It's what I use in the shower, when I get out of the shower, in my every day makeup that I wear to work AND what I like to use on the weekends to relax. So ENJOY! I tried to also link up all the products to make it easier for you to shop and buy!
