January Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. This month has been really busy, which I love, but at the same time feels like it’s been 79 years long. But within all of that I’ve collected a good group of favorites, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from this month’s Sephora Play Box. I will link that down below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Kat Von D Beauty, who have rebranded themselves as KVD Vegan Beauty, Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I talk about this liner all the time, I love it. It’s really precise, it lasts all day and it doesn’t smudge. It’s just so good.

My other Play favorite is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. I’ve been using this for a little while and my hair loves it. This helps to prevent future damage, restores moisture and creates vibrancy. I take pretty good care of my hair already, but I love a good hair mask and I can tell the difference when I use this one.

Moving on, my next beauty favorite is the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold. I am always on the lookout for a great highlighter and this one has been raved about for a while now, so I thought I would try it. I’m so happy I did because it’s fantastic. It’s the perfect rose gold shade, it’s buildable and the shine you get when the light hits it is so nice. They do make this in three other colors that I do want to look at, but if you’re looking for a drugstore highlighter I highly recommend this one.

My second to last beauty favorite is the makeup I did on my birthday. I wanted to do something really fun and a little extra because if you can’t be extra on your birthday then when can you. So I went with a gold sparkly eye and a bold lip and I love the way it turned out.

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Cosmetics Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar palette. I did a post all about this palette, which I’ll link below, and since then I’ve been playing around with it and creating some fun looks. It’s a solid palette.

EP3

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s cinnamon rolls. Every year on my birthday, for my actual birthday my mom makes me cinnamon rolls and they are some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve had. I don’t know her recipe, I need to get it from her, but they’re so well balanced and it’s everything you want in a cinnamon roll without it being too sweet.

My second to last favorite is the Rolex 24. The Rolex 24 is the first race of the IMSA season, it’s always exciting and this year was no different. There were a lot of moves with teams, drivers and cars made in the off season so I was really interested to see how it was going to play out. I can honestly say it looks like it’s going to be an exciting season and I of course want to congratulate the Rolex 24 winners.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, the blues. This is a really broad thing to say and I listen to the blues a lot anyway, but this month has been filled with a lot of rain and crap weather that it’s been very fitting. My Joe Bonamassa playlist has gotten extra use this month.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great January :).

January 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be unboxing my January Sephora Play Box. The theme this month is Stress-Free Beauty. That means that these are products that you can count on in your routine to work every time. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure at the top. The front is a see through tealy/blue with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘How to PLAY! 1. Open 2. Heart eyes emoji 3. Repeat #SephoraPlay’ written in that same tealy/blue.

IMG_4964

The first product we have is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. This is supposed to smooth, hydrate and help protect your hair. You put this on after you shampoo and you lather from root to tip and leave in for five to ten minutes. I have this in my shower right now and I love it. It smells great and my hair feels extra soft and smooth after I use it. If your looking for a hair mask I definitely recommend this one.

IMG_4965

Next we have the GlamGlow SUPERMUD Activated Charcoal Treatment Mask. You put a thin layer of this on your skin, you can also use this as a spot treatment, leave on until it hardens and wash off with warm water. Because this has activated charcoal it’s supposed to be really purifying and great for the skin. I really like charcoal masks, so I’m excited to try this.

IMG_4967

Moving on we have the Shiseido WASO Clear Mega Hydrating Cream. This is a clear gel moisturizer with peony root extract and whole carrot cells that is supposed to give you intense hydration and help to brighten the skin. I tried this a few months ago and there’s something in it that my skin does not like because it made me break out. But I know a lot of people do like this.

IMG_4968

The next product we have is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. This is one of my absolute favorite eyeliners. It’s really precise, you get a great line and it’s great if you want a hassle free cat eye.

IMG_4969

The second to last product we have is the Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. This is a mascara primer, it has a microfiber brush so it gets each lash and vitamin E which helps to nurture and condition your lashes. I personally don’t use mascara primers, I don’t really like them, but this one has great reviews and people seem to really like it.

IMG_4970

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette. I’m gonna be honest, I have a cold and I’m stuffed up so I have no idea what this smells like. But it says that it’s floral with bergamot and lily of the valley. I don’t always go for a floral scent in perfume because they can be heavy but I’ll let you guys know what I think of this once I can fully smell.

IMG_4972

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your January Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

September Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my September Play Box from Sephora and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Must-See Beauty. Basically products that will grab your attention and that you’ll love. The bag itself is a really pretty light blue with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘How to PLAY! 1. Open 2. (emoji with heart eyes) 3. Repeat #SephoraPlay’ written in blue.

SPSP1

The first product we have is the Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. I’ve used this before, a while ago and I quite liked it. It makes your skin feel really soft and smooth and it’s supposed to retain moisture for up to 26 hours.

SPSP2

The next product we have is the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer. This is an oil free primer with a matte finish that is supposed to blur your pores and really lock in your makeup. It also has fig extract which is supposed to have antibacterial properties and be good for the skin. This is good for combination, oily and normal skin and like all First Aid Beauty products it’s safe for sensitive skin. I’m wearing it right now and I didn’t know how much I would like it at first because matte primers aren’t always my favorite but so far I’m really liking it. It did blur my pores and my makeup hasn’t moved. It does have a scent but it’s like a fresh, fruity smell so I don’t mind it.

SPSP3

Moving on we have the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in 4.5, Neutral Deep Brown. I’ve said this before, but when it comes to brows I prefer to use powder, but in the past I’ve used Gimme Brow and it’s honestly so good. Benefit does brows so well that everything in their range is great.

SPSP4

Next we have the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in Classic Black. I have heard so many good things about this mascara, so I was excited to have a chance to finally try it out. I’m wearing it today and let me just say, holy lashes Batman. It’s so good. The brush is nice and big, it coats all of my lashes, I’ve not had any flaking and because the formula is so smooth it makes it really buildable without making your lashes stick together or being gloopy. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

SPSP5

SPSP6

The second to last product we have is the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. This is a conditioning mask that you put on after you shampoo and leave for about 10 minutes and it’s supposed to help prevent any future damage, restore moisture and create vibrancy. It has coconut, avocado, almond and argan oils along with biotin and vitamin B5. This is color safe and safe to use on chemically treated, keratin treated and relaxed hair. And it’s free of artificial dyes, silicones and is cruelty free. As a brand I quite like Briogeo and I love a good hair mask, so I’m excited to try this and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

SPSP7

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Viktor&Rolf Magic Sage Spell. This is a very earthy scent. It’s fresh but has a hint of sweetness and a brightness. Not the typical scent that I would go for but it smells really nice. I would say to give it a smell if you haven’t and you get the chance.

SPSP8

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your September Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

June Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my June Play Box from Sephora and I thought today would be a great time to go through it. The theme for this month is Destination Beauty, basically it’s products that will help you to look and feel great no matter where you’re going. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is see through orange with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘Work hard, PLAY! harder #SephoraPlay’ written in orange. It gives off major creamsicle vibes and it’s perfect for summer.

JUSP1

The first product we have is the Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow. This is a weightless moisturizer with glycerin, hyaluronic acid and vitamins E and C that is supposed to not only moisturize and nurture your skin but it’s supposed to help give you a natural glow. I love a good moisturizer and on the days when I don’t wear makeup or do a no makeup makeup look I love a natural glow, especially this time of year. So I’ll let you guys know what I think.

JUSP2

Next up we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. This is a primer that I use and I really like. It has marine plant extracts, turmeric and hyaluronic acid and really helps your skin to wake up and it gives you a great base to work with. I definitely recommend it.

JUSP3

Moving on we have the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream. This cream is supposed to help keep out things that are bad for your skin like allergens, pollution and irritants while keeping in the moisture. I’ve tried a few different products from First Aid Beauty and I’ve really liked them all. They’re a great brand and I always recommend them because they have a huge range of products so you’re bound to find something you like and all of their products are safe for sensitive skin.

JUSP4

The next product we have is the Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara in Blackest Black. If you read my recent post about mascara, I’ll link it below, then you’ll know how I feel about this one. Basically I have a love hate relationship with it. While it gave me nice volume, I don’t like the formulation. I had some transfer and I was not a fan of that.

JUSP6

JUSP7

The second to last product we have is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. You put this on before you go to bed and when you wake up you wipe off the remaining product. And it’s supposed to really moisturize your lips. I’ve actually never used a lip sleeping mask so I’m excited to try this and it smells really good, which is a major plus.

JUSP5

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Briogeo Superfoods Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo is Be Gentle, Be Kind Matcha + Apple Replenishing Superfood Shampoo and the conditioner is Be Gentle, Be Kind Kale + Apple Replenishing Superfood Conditioner. This has no parabens, silicones or harsh sulfates and is supposed nurture and replenish your hair, helping to get rid of any dullness. I think this is interesting so I’ll have to give it a try.

JUSP8

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your June Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next times, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
