These past couple days have been busy, so first I have to say sorry for not posting for a few days. Kaylee and I went to New York City for the weekend, so we were a little too excited about that to be able to post. I figured to just write quick little things about each item, which are all fantastic by the way! So day 5 was…Midnight Fleur by NEST. To me it is a scent I would wear in the evening. There is this strong flower scent which is really actually lovely. I’ve never had a perfume of theirs before but I definitely would buy another from them. Day 6 is Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lighting Serum. To me personally I don’t exactly need a age spot lightener, I’m 18, as of now I don’t have any wrinkles ( thank god). I guess it is never too early to start preventing though! I put it on and it was this weird feeling on my skin, it kind of felt like it was tightening, which I’m guessing is a good thingI! Day 7 was Purity by Philosophy. This product is something that I’m very familiar with, and I love it. My mother has been ordering Philosophy since I can remember, it was the first face wash I ever used. There is this simple light smell which is very relaxing, and it doesn’t leave any residue on your skin, but leaves it smooth and clean. Day 8 was IT Cosmetics Mascara. I’m obsessed with mascara, and when I say obsessed I mean like in an unhealthy way. I use a total of 5 mascaras, now 6, a day. So adding this mascara to my collection is very exciting. Lets just say I’m in love with it. The brush creates this brilliant effect on the lashes that fans them out and adds volume. I greatly recommend this product! Finally today’s product, day 9 is StriVectin Wrinkle and Stretch Mark Tightener. I’m currently praying this works, weight has not always been kind to me. Stretch marks are embarrassing, and yes I do have them. I put the lotion on the areas, I will report back with the results! Now that I have gotten caught up with the days I will continue to post regularly. Day 10 here we come!
The mystery item under flap number 4 is… drumroll please… Laura Geller Beauty Ingenuity Midnight eyeliner. So with this being an eyeliner, an actually makeup product rather than a beauty product like the other ones, I thought I would show how I used it. I do love Laura Geller I have a few other eyeliners of hers, and they go on really smooth. This midnight color has a sparkle to it, which was a surprise to me when I put it on; to a girl like me who loves black and sparkles there really couldn’t be a better combination. So I did a couple experiments with this eyeliner this morning and I decided with a sparkly wing. It came out as an edgier look to me, I don’t wear as much eyeliner as I used to. I pared this look with a white tee and leather jacket, let’s just say I feel like a 1950’s greaser today! This eyeliner is definitely great for a night out, if you aren’t as bold to try the different color liners but want something other than plain black. The glitter adds more of a texture and helps make the eyeliner not as flat as plain black. I hope you enjoy my look, and check out this eyeliner for yourself!
Waking up has never been my favourite thing to do. When you have a warm cozy bed why would you want to go anywhere else? What makes it even worse is waking up at 7am for an Econ class at 8am. Being the person I am, someone who doesn’t get excited about numbers and graphs, this is one of the hardest things in the world to do. So as I roll my way out of bed and barely land on my two feet, I grab my advent box praying that it will bring me some sort of joy to this dreadful morning. As always the box did not disappoint me. On this beautiful day 3 I received Kate Somerville Exfolikate, which let me say is like a blessing to me this morning. Waking up in an irritated mood,this exfoliator helped calm my nerves. As soon as started using it this green tea smell instantly hit me, calming my senses and helping me relax. This product called “Hollywood’s 2 minute facial” is an exfoliating treatment that is absolutely wonderful, and I highly recommend it. The exfoliator is to be used once or twice a week and left on for about 1 to 2 minutes. When you put the mask on it has this greenish tint, but after having it on for about 30 seconds the color goes away. In the picture the green color has already started to fade. I left my mask on for about 2 minutes, there’s this tingling feeling on your skin, which is a feeling that I really love. After washing it off my face feels incredibly soft and smooth, let me just share if I could buy a lifetime supply of this stuff I would! Hoping that tomorrow is a little easier to get up but has a product that is just as exciting.
Waking up this morning was exciting as ever because who isn’t excited for a new mystery beauty item. So today as I jumped out of my lovely college dorm bed (can you sense the sarcasm), put on my slippers, and grabbed my beauty box I was ready to start the day. Under mystery flap 2 was bliss blood orange & white pepper hand cream with macadamia oil & grape seed extract. What a weird combination right? Blood orange and white pepper, who would even think to put those two together. Although the hesitation let me put all your questions to rest, the combination does in fact work! It’s a sweet and spicy smell, you can smell the orange flavor but also get that tickle of white pepper in your nose. Besides the interesting smell the lotion itself is wonderful! After putting it on, my hands felt buttery smooth without that greasy after feeling that lotions can sometimes have. I’ve had other lotions of bliss before and it’s a great thing to have, even a little tube that can fit right in your purse! Hopefully it can save me from getting cracked dry hands from this Erie winter. Have a great day and get excited about day 3!
It’s December 1st so you know what that means; brush off your stockings and cute decorations because Christmas is on the way! A tradition in my family is the classic advent box, but this year I’ve gotten a a different type of advent box than I’m used to from my mom. A makeup advent box! How exciting is that? For a girl like me it’s a dream came true, a new makeup product a day makes waking up each morning a little bit more exciting. So I’ve decided to share the items I get each day with all of you!
To start it all off the item I got first is Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil. I use argan oil for so many things, I think of it as a beauty necessity. The main purpose I use argan oil is for my split ends, I am a hair dying addict, which I know isn’t the greatest thing. However the argan oil helps rejuvenate my hair and fixes my split ends, giving my hair this wonderful silky shine. It can also be used to soften cuticles and as a great moisturizer for cracked skin. This morning I even used it on my chapped burning lips, it quickly eased the pain and made them smoother and less cracked. I highly recommend having argan oil in your beauty archive! I hope you are all excited about day 2 as I am!
