It’s no secret that I probably love skincare more than makeup, so I was very excited for this VoxBox from Influenster! I’ve tried some Ole Henriksen samples before with my Sephora orders but haven’t had the chance to use them consistently to really see their full potential. Let’s check it out:

IMG_3036Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster: Vitamin C is my favorite ingredient for skincare. From the scent to the glow, I really notice a different when I have Vitamin C in my skincare (I’ve used a lot of Vitamin C products from The Body Shop). This serum is fantastic. It absorbs into the skin very quickly and leaves the skin slightly tacky. I use it as a moisturizer/primer before my CC Cream in the morning and it goes under my nighttime moisturizer in the evening. If you’re looking for a new serum, I can already say this gets a big gold star.

POWER Bright: This treatment was nice, but I don’t know if it’s something I’d repurchase. A pack of 6 is $55, which is about $9 per treatment. This 3-step treatment has a polishing mask, a concentrate, and a melting cleanser as the finishing step. While my skin did feel nice after, it was a bit high maintenance to have 3 steps, even for me.

Cleansing Sponges: If you like cleansing sponges, I’m sure you’ll like these. Personally, I just prefer a good old fashioned wash cloth. I think it gives you just as much grit and also a larger surface.

That’s it! I hope this review was helpful and be sure to ask away with any questions I didn’t cover. xoxo

Happy Tuesday! Today I’m bringing you an exceptionally exciting post about the new Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks! Back in October I did a post on my Top 5 Favorite High-End Products and Bite lipsticks made the cut. These new lipsticks are no exception – creamy, super opaque, and have a sweet citrus flavor. Plus they’re full of oils and other great natural ingredients to nourish your lips!

I was kindly sent these by Influenster but can promise you if I didn’t think they were all that, I’d let you know. The only downside to these is that they’re $26. However, the ingredients and quality don’t make the price a waste. I have Gingersnap (peach) on my Loves list at Sephora and could also see myself purchasing Spritzer (violet) and Sangria (fuchsia).

Let’s swatch!

After these photos and I left Gazpacho on and ate breakfast. This lipstick faired through pancakes with syrup pretty well. I was impressed. It didn’t look perfect and had faded a little toward the center of my mouth but still looked pretty darn good. It didn’t necessarily need a touch-up but I did one anyway to see how they layered. Sometimes with really pigmented lipsticks you can’t layer them after one has set because it’ll go on patchy or cling to your lips and look weird. This does not and went over beautifully.

There are 34 shades, let me know which color you’d try!
