NEW SKIN CARE! (combo/oily) – Mini (literally) Product Review!!

SOOOO I recently (maybe two/three months ago… oops) got my hands on some samples, and I’ve recently (two weeks.. )started using them all together, to see if my skin would improve! I have combination/oily skin, so I’m pretty scared to put new stuff on my face, but these work SO. WELL. together!

Now, I’ve already mentioned the Cindy Crawford product before, but these little samples are about to make me burn a huge hole in my pocket.

ITEMS FEATURED:

  • Meaningful Beauty Cindy Crawford – Crème de Sérum
  • HONEST BEAUTY – Beyond Protected Daily Fluid (No longer sold.. I’m fucking upset about it)
  • First Aid Beauty – Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum
  • HONEST BEAUTY – Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser

OKAY OKAY I KNOW, why post about the HB daily fluid if they don’t have it anymore? Well, so you’re at least able to know what it can do for you and find a product that’s probably a lot better (FIRST AID BEAUTY.. AHEM). Sorry, HB. </3 (I only use a couple of drops of it in the morning with MBCC, so not too much of a loss.)

MORNINGS: I just wash my face with my Biore Baking Soda Liquid Pore Cleanser (shown in a previous post.. buy it here!) and moisturize with MB and the daily fluid. The Meaningful Beauty also works as an amazing foundation primer, so that’s a plus, too!

NIGHTS: I remove my make up with coconut oil, and wipe that off with a damp cloth. I wash my face with the HB gel cleanser, pat dry, and apply a pump of the Meaningful Beauty and a small amount of FAB’s hydrating serum.

BEFORE: I would wake up and my face would be sooo oily around my nose/forehead/cheeks/chin. Now, I wake up and my face is just soft and fresh.. THE BEST FEELING. ❤

It really disappoints me that the daily fluid is no longer available to purchase, but honestly, with what it does, you could probably have better results with FAB’s 5 in 1 Face Cream (SPF 30). I’m DEFINITELY going to be picking some up. One of the problems it helps with is dryness, but with combo/oily skin (primarily oily, though) YOU NEED TO MOISTURIZE YOUR FACE. STOP NOT MOISTURIZING YOUR FACE BECAUSE YOU THINK IT’LL GET WORSE. THAT’S MAKING IT WORSE!!!!!! Trust me, I KNOW. BUT!! This product is OIL FREE!!! so you’re in the clear!

*I will be doing a review on it soon, promise. ❤

Lip Plumper.. WTF (REVIEW)

seriously.. what the fuckIMG_2650

OKAY. So I bought this thing online because it looked similar to CandyLipz, and I wanted big ass Kylie lips. Why? Because I don’t have a fucking top lip HAHA (BLESSSSS LIP LINER).

This thing was like $8? Including shipping, so not bad. Beats $50 no doubt, so if it works MAYBE I could buy the CandyLipz.. but why would I if this works hahah

So, this is what it looks like. It isn’t anything special, just a normal rubber tomato thing. Still fucking weird to me. I guess no different than an apple, sort of. I’m not sure of the other, but the rubber on this one is fairly hard to squeeze at first. It has the little lip placement, pretty simple to figure it out.

It obviously came with it’s own instructions, but my stubborn ass chose to go by the ones online, videos, etc (although they’re almost exactly the same).

I started by drinking water (to keep hydrated.. it felt right) and moisturizing my lips with my rose salve. Nice. I made sure my lips were in the middle of the hole, pushed the tomato in and let it do it’s thing for 2 minutes.. at first. It came out funky to me, so I did it the reversed side to help my top lip out. Oh this fucker hurt haha. BUT my skin is extremely sensitive to pain and other pokes and such (no, it doesn’t poke you). My god did I drool. Everywhere. Even after it told me to not drool into it.

Here are the before/after pictures (sorry, taken on my P.O.S phone). Yes, part of my bottom lip is lopsided HAHA SHUT UP. Assholes. Anyway. The after is so ❤ Just lipstick, no liner!

My lips felt fucking STRAAAAAANNNGGGEEEE oh my god I thought the bottom was gonna fall off hahaha. Towards the end of the night, I got a hickey type mark (normal) but I covered it with makeup. And then my husband saw it the following morning and good lord did I get a LOOK LMAO.

Here are some more:

The one before is a minute or two AFTER the after, and the second is about 4 hours after that.. still full, but not insanely huge.

There’s a rest period of 2 days “required” after the first, most likely to let your lips heal after the traumatic shit you just put them through (for the real one, not this guy), but I may be a stupid ass and try it again after one. Lightly. A little. Sort of. ALRIGHT I’M GONNA DO IT. My lips went down already and I feel as white as my father is. Sorry, Dad.

SOOOO so far I really like this thing, it seems to work as well as the real one. I’m excited to keep using it and keep you guys updated! I’m sure you’ll see in photos, though. 😉

First Product Review, YAY!

Okay, so I FINALLLLLYYY got my hands on this Wet N Wild photofocus pressed powder, and I am IN LOVE. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS.

With my foundation (I switch between Tarte and Too Faced) I usually use a translucent loose powder to set it (by Tarte), along with a matte setting spray (by NYX). After this, I usually have to set my face a few times a day, just because my skin can get pretty oily. Although I have combination skin, this Arizona weather confuses it hahah.

After using THIS product over my face makeup (no loose powder, no setting spray, etc), my face was STILL matte by the end of the day. Keep in mind that it’s already hitting the 90s in this p art of Arizona. GROSS. >_>

I am VERY iffy about products like this, because I have spent so much money trying to find something that would keep me matte (especially around my nose and my forehead).

This product, I shit you not, is the Holy Grail of pressed powders. Honest to the makeup gods. Best part? It’s $5. That’s less than I spend on a large iced coffee and 2 donuts at Dunkin’. If you have $5 to spare, I highly recommend you try this out. I purchased mine at Walgreens but you can also get it online (with shipping) here! They have an okay range of colors, but I got myself the lightest they had and it works VERY well with my skin, so I’m hoping all shades are blendable! 🙂

On another note, pictured are some of my FAVORITE beauty items for a soft, natural look- a daily wear!

I’d like to do more product reviews! I’m in love with this. Maybe let me know what you guys would like to see reviewed? 🙂 I’d appreciate it!
