Burts Bees Natural blush

Hello folks! I’m here with another beauty review! Today I want to talk about these Burts Bees Natural blushes! I got 2 shades–Bare Peach, and Shy Pink. The website claims are:

“Our 100% natural, mineral Blush Makeup applies and blends easily and evenly to enhance your cheeks’ natural glow. The lightweight formula brings together Bamboo, Honey and Vitamin E to nourish skin for beautifully radiant results.”

I must say, all the claims are spot on. These blushes make the skin glow with the slightest sheen, and although they appear matte, they aren’t!

I adore the honeycomb pattern in the pan, and the simple packaging. They are so smooth and blend-able. I feel like Burts Bees products have always been the truly quality, and dependable items at the Drugstore. These blushes are the same. It’s making me want to try other makeup items from the line!

I have used these blushes for about a week now, every day. They last my whole work day, and I notice minimal fading by hour 9 or 10. I demand a lot from my makeup, since I usually have face makeup on for at least 11 hours a day, and these really keep up!

Have any of you tried other Burts Bees makeup items? Let me know what you think of them!


Glossier Cloud paints

Good morning bloggers! I originally posted this review on my Instagram a while ago, but now I feel I’ve had them long enough to give my full thoughts.

The Glossier Could Paints are easy to use cream blushes that blend out well with either your fingers or a beauty sponge. They deliver a very realistic flush to the cheeks, and the colours are just beautiful!

My biggest gripe with this product is the layering aspect. If you are wearing little to no base product, that’s the way to go. These will blend, and not conflict with any powders or contour colours you use afterwards. Whenever I have a full face of makeup on, which is most days, to be honest, these just don’t cut it.

Whatever contour or highlight I put on top or under these blushes become choppy and don’t blend well.

I absolutely LOVE these cloud paints on the natural days. The days where I’m brows, mascara, and balm. The days I want to look like I cared, but didn’t. I’m sure we can all agree, these are the best days. But for the average workday, or day/night out I want a little more coverage and a bit more blendability.

Sephora VIB mini haul!

So…I have a makeup addiction. As much as I love Asian and Korean skincare, my makeup addiction is straight up western. It has been a love and hobby of mine for going on 4 years now. Much older than my more recent obsession with skincare. Well, with my skin aging a bit (I’m in my late 20’s) I realized I needed to step up my skincare game.

That doesn’t mean I’m letting my first love, makeup, fall to the wayside. In my little haul, I got:

Too faced Peach perfect comfort matte foundation (Shade Porcelain)–Still trying this out, but I LOVE the finish this gives. My only gripe so far is the shade selection. There isn’t an undertone that fits me, and there aren’t even that many shades to chose from. Ugh.

IT Cosmetics CC Illumination (shade Fair)–While the shade match is on Point for me personally, there’s still an issue because there’re only about 6 shades total in this line. Very silly for a big brand to only have that many shades. BUT, the actual product is so nice. It does have SHIMMER… a lot of shimmer. It’s an illuminating foundation, and they weren’t kidding, Hahaha.

Kat Von D Shade and Light contour palette– A Beautiful face palette! I bought this mostly to replace the contour shades I’ve already gone through, and I’m so happy I went with this one. Perfectly gray, and not too warm toned-this contour palette really delivers.

Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipstick in Ophelia–My new favorite nude! Amazing classic formula, with great color payoff.


Wash-off Mask love

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

Wash off masks are one of those things that never get old for me. I love walking around the house, scaring my husband and the cats, while fortifying my skin. Below are some of my faves!

Origins Clear Improvement Mask–This mask is an oldie, but a goodie. I am using up this sample size from Sephora right now, and im loving it. My skin doesn’t break out often, but when it does I know I can go to this mask. It’s not too drying, and washes off easily. I also use this as an overnight spot treatment for any stubborn blemishes on my face.

Skinfood Rice Mask–A great gentle exfoliator, and skin brightener. Rice is a natural ingredient that will brighten the skin, and help with texture. This mask is left on for 10 mins, and then as you wash it off, it exfoliates the skin, but leaves it feeling SO smooth to the touch.

Farmacy Honey Potion–An amazing antioxidant face mask packed with echinacea green envy. This ingredient brings impurities to the surface, and gently warms on contact. I love how this mask makes my skin feel the next day. This is a mask that doesn’t show immediate results, but with regular use, it makes your skin more hydrated, and clear.

GlamGlow Thirsty Mud–A classic hydrating mask that I use overnight to get rid of any dry patches. This mask also has natural exfoliating properties to really clear away dead skin, and hydrate the layers beneath.


What are your favorite wash off masks?
