Clearly I'm procrastinating from doing my paper lol These are just some products I tried within the last few weeks/months. I have no idea how those beauty gurus try so many things every month, kudos to them! As usual these are just blurbs of what I think about the products/how they worked on me =)


Alba aloe and green tea moisturizer, I hate a love hate relationship with you. While I find this decently moisturizing it also just sits on top on my skin. It doesn't get absorbed completely and then becomes tight. I ended up using nearly all of it because it's not so terrible I want to trash it but it's not the best either, in the end I almost hit "pan" with it though I really did like the gel like texture verses cream. On the hunt for another nice moisturizer!

The smell of this lotion is horrid!!! It also doesn't get absorbed into my skin and just sits there all stinky and sticky, shame since I really love the facial cleanser =(


Elf blush~ For some odd reason I said I didn't like this blush in this post, which I've now edited.

I love this blush! It's Twinkle Pink by Elf, I keep thinking and calling it Tickled Pink though =S

This blush is what I though NARS Orgasm would look like! I was really disappointed with nars, it didn't show up on my cheeks at all but this blush looks amazing~ It has a gentle touch of shimmer with a lovely peach colour. I guess if I had to pick a bad thing about it is that it has quite a bit of fallout. You can see around the edges of the pan all the fall out it produces when you swipe your brush across but it personally it's not a deal breaker and really worth it for such a nice blush. I'm also pretty sure I wore this the entire month so if you go back to my February iphone photos I'm most likely wearing this blush.

Joe fresh's lipgloss which is really like liquid lipstick at least in this shade! I was hoping to pick up a nice red gloss to layer over my red lipstick but this gloss is so pigmented I wear it on it's own! The shade is Lychee and looks lovely on!

Also I finally found a dupe for my favorite nude/pink nail polish!!! I'll write more on that next time but it's the shade I'm wearing on my nails in these photos.

That is all for now~
