Marula Oil Showdown – Drunk Elephant VS The Ordinary!

I discovered the use of facial oils a couple years ago, and they have really changed my skin for the better. Having oily skin my entire life, it was an odd bandwagon to jump on – but trust me! Oils are your friend! Oily skin does not mean you are not in need of moisture and hydration. It means you need to provide the CORRECT moisture and hydration.

I bring to you today my thoughts on the drastically differing in cost Marula Oil offerings from Drunk Elephant and The Ordinary. One is $72, and the other is less than $10. So are they really that different? Let’s dive into this! Continue reading

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

The world of skincare is really starting to become more about how a product looks on your counter or in your Instagram feed, than how it performs on your skin. And unfortunately, I am 100% susceptible to millennial pink and chunky glass packaging.

In this review, I am going to go over the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask from Glow Recipe that everyone on social media was losing their G-D minds over (apparently it had an 8,000 person wait list at Sephora? Was I one of those people? I don’t even rememebr, but it is highly likely..). Is it fantastic-amazing-perfect-worth it in every way? Well let’s find out!

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation

Ello ello, Leslie here! It is time for another foundation review! I love all things skin, and that includes making it look absolutely perfect (or trying my damndest) with the RIGHT foundation. So I want to try literally all of them.

The Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation from Laura Mercier launched in 2017 and was a favorite of some big name influencers – so of course, I had to give it a try! Let’s see how flawless and longwear this sh*t actually is (and spoiler alert – the bottle is v fragile..)

Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation #foundationfriday

Yaaas-lie here! This week for Foundation Friday I am going go over my thoughts on the new(ish) Blur Liquid from Milk Makeup. Milk is one of those super trendy brands with the super artistically simple packaging and millennials are losing their g-d minds over it.

I’ve only tried a few things from Milk (see my thoughts on the Blur Stick here), but when ThaTaylaa RAVED about this one, I had to give it a try! So let’s. get. in. to. it. Continue reading

Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

Leslie here!! I hope your week is going just PEACHY. It’s time again for another #FoundationFriday, and this week I am going to get all up in that Peaches and Cream!

I have been really failing on my ‘no-buy’, and Too Faced’s Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation was first on my list to try! As a lover of the Sweet Peach palette, I was actually not very excited about a lot of the Peaches and Cream Collection. Maybe I’m too old to appreciate the cutesy packaging. But packaging aside, I have seen rave reviews on this particular piece of the line! So let’s see if it is peach PERFECT!

Leslie here!! I am so excited to …announce? Yeah sure- let’s announce!!

I will be starting a Foundation Friday series, where a foundation review will be posted on the blog every Friday!  Now – this is not a new concept, I did not invent this, and many of my favorite gurus do some sort of foundation Friday.
