Beauty Bakerie Lipstick

I love the entire concept of the Beauty Bakerie’s theme. The packaging and naming is so cute!

The only thing I’ve been able to try is a mini matte lipstick and I was not disappointed!

The name is Desserts First, the price is $10 and the packaging is cardboard!

The formula is matte but comfortable and the color payoff is great!

I would definitely recommend this lipstick and can’t wait to try more!

Morphe 18B

You guys remember my no spend 2020?

Yeah, me either. Haha!

I fell off the wagon hard this month, like, really hard so next month I’m going to have to kick it into overdrive and remind myself I have a goal.

In the meantime look at this beeeuuuuteee

I’m a sucker for names

I’ve recently been OBSESSED with green eyeshadow and have yet to find the perfect olive/army green.

Hopefully this palette can satisfy my needs!

“Bubble Bubble No more Trouble”

I’m the kind of person that hates washing my face. There, I said it.

There’s something about having product in my face as I blindly splash water up in the hopes of rinsing everything clean.

When I saw The Creme Shop carbonated bubbling oxygen clay mask I was intrigued. I’ve used bubbling sheet masks in the past and have liked them, but this one was more than just a sheet mask.

Here are the claims off their website:

All-in-one cleanses, exfoliates, unclogs pores.

Our Bubble Bubble, No More Trouble Carbonated Bubbling Oxygen Clay Mask is a powerful all-in-one that deeply cleanses, exfoliates skin of dead skin cells, blackheads, and unclogs pores by removing dirt, oil, and sebum.

Additional nutrients like Collagen, Green Tea, and Lavender replenish and smooths the skin for a soft complexion and youthful glow.

That’s quite a bit of action!

I had a CVS 40% off coupon so I decided to try it. I thought maybe the bubbling action would make it exciting enough for me to want to wash my face.


Day 1: I wasn’t sure what to expect so I applied a layer just thick enough to cover my face. I rubbed it on using my fingers and waited for it to do its magic. It didn’t take long to start to tingle, not in a bad way, and bubble and soon the five minutes were up and it was time to see the results. I could tell it had removed all of my makeup, avoid eye contact (and make sure your mouth is fully closed, this doesn’t have a pleasant taste) but it left my skin feeling dry.

I used it again the next day, this time using a thicker layer of product


I noticed more bubbles this time, and it was easier to rub off as I rinsed my face but again, it left my skin feeling very dry and stripped.

I’ll have to continue using it to see if it’s something my skin needs to adapt to or if it’s too harsh for daily use.

Overall I think it’s a cute idea that works well. I can’t decide if I would recommend this yet because of how dry my face is left.

Natasha Denona makeup

This year, at Sephoria, I learned Natasha Denona has primer and foundation so during this holiday Rouge sale I picked up the Magic Primer, the Foundation X+ and the Contour Sculpting Powder.

I’ve used the sculpting powder twice and the primer and foundation three times and here are my thoughts:

  • The primer works well and does what it says. It kept my face from looking shiny and felt hydrating. I used it on my t-zone only, as recommended and used a hydrating primer everywhere else
  • The foundation is great, it’s matte and full coverage so I only used a little. You have to shake it very well before using because it does separate. I was a little concerned because some of the reviews stated that it ended up seperating by the end of the day but I did not experience that at all. I have an oily t-zone and dry outer face.
  • I got the sculpting powder in warm and this works as a perfect bronzer for me. It’s best to start with a light hand and build up. It blended well and lasted all day

I think the price point for these are all fairly reasonable and comparable to other high end products.

Overall I would definitely recommend these products!

September Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

I’ve been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for a couple of months now and so far I’ve been really impressed by the products I’ve received.

This month’s box included:

  • Nomad Cosmetics Berlin Underground eyeshadow palette
  • Glamglow Tropical Cleanser
  • Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Midnight
  • Ciaté London Extraordinary translucent power
  • Wander Beauty Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil in dark brown

My box arrived yesterday and since today is my day off I decided to play around with some of the products, specifically the eyeshadow palette and eyebrow pencil.

I had to use a different palette for an initial crease shade but the remaining six colors were all from the palette.

Overall I’m very impressed by the pigmentation, the blendability and how approachable this palette seemed.

The brow pencil is fine, I personally prefer bigger tips because I just use it to fill in my brows but overall I was able to use it and I liked the way my brows came out. The pigmentation was great, not too much and it didn’t feel waxy

I’m not sure if I’ll try out the remaining products or gift them since I already have so many of those products in rotation.

I’m very happy with this month’s box and would definitely recommend it!

If you’re interested in trying it here’s my code you can use to sign up, or you can sign up on your own.

I will try to keep posting initial reviews as my boxes come in!

Makeup Revolution Decadence

I picked up the Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Decadence a while back when they were buy 2 get 1 free at Ulta but I hadn’t used it until today.

I love the color scheme and based on previous palettes I have I was looking forward to using this.

The palette didn’t disappoint at all! The colors are pigmented and easy to blend. There is kickback from the shades but I personally love that so it doesn’t bother me at all.

Overall I’m really happy with how this palette performed and am looking forward to using it again and again!
