CURRENT FAVES


my last trip to sephora was a complete success! 
(except for when I had to check out & spent 20x more money than I told myself I would...)

after finding what worked for me in the skincare dept., my face has cleared up a lot, so I've been shopping for products that enhance my 'natural' look. I was recommended to nars' velvet matte skin tint for my oily skin over a bb cream which was what I originally wanted to buy. because I use a daily moisturizer, adding a bb cream would be duplicative & non-beneficial for my skin type. (bonus: it has 30SPF in it.)

I'm also super into this marc jacobs coconut highlighter c/o influenstera website that sends you stuff for free to review. needless to say, I've yet to be disappointed with what I've been sent. both opportunities granted me marc jacobs' beauty products for -nada- and if you're familiar w/ the quality & price point, you know how major that is. 

additional favorites rn: 
nars matte concealer - gives me additional coverage where needed, i.e.: my dark spots.
mac retro matte liquid lipcolour - this shade is ladybegood & it's a great neutral, and the liquid to matte formula doesn't dry my lips out.
chanel coco mademoiselle - the eau de toilette is my go-to for a fresh, fem scent for both daytime & nighttime wear. 

shop it: 




the higlighter ft. here was gifted to me by influenster. all opinions are true & more importantly, my
own.  contact me & see past collabs here.

  4. I have not tried any of these. TBH, I wear CVS makeup (horrible??). I really need to start exploring. Especially since I do not always have the best skin! I am sure much of this is way better than what I am using. xx

  12. I've heard so many great things about Marc Jacobs products but have never tried them out for myself!! I used to be a huge makeup junkie and try to stay far away from Sephora and Ulta because I know that I will buy so much stuff!! Great picks
