Sephora Haul: September 2021

Ok so I know its been quite awhile since my last haul. Ive really been trying my best to figure my new site out and how it works. Im excited as ever tho to be sharing a few goodies from Sephora this month so lets jump into it.

Kate Somerville breakout fighters

I mainly got this set for my lil dolly. You can never be too young to start taking care of your skin and I want her to know taking care of her skin includes drawing attention to when our skin breaks out. Im excited to try it and plan on doing  a full review with before and after pics.

Laneige lip sleeping mask

 

This is a total repurchase however this is the newest flavor so im excited to try. I looove this lip mask so much [its part of my Holy Grail  of skincare!!

Liquid Gold w/ glycolic acid

Need I say any more. GA is such a great ingredient to have in your skincare as a akin exfoliate. Cant wait to play with this .

Anastasia Beverly Hills detailing brow pen

Another repurchase BUT I got a lighter shade this time for a more natural look.

 

Yves Saint Laurent lipstick trio 

Fall is almost here so that means darker and richer fall colors. I cant wait to try these colors out on me.

Review: Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Barefoot and primarily vegan (Elemis does animal testing in China when legally required to do so) Elemis is a British wellness brand located in London. Nature powers their products: by sourcing natural extracts that catalyse each other and harness the power of nature’s finest active ingredients, and because of it, they can deliver results that you can see and feel, both inside and out. Elemis has blossomed into a darling company with a cult following of beauty addicts. It offers up its products in artisanal glass jars—a gorgeous design that not only keeps the contents fresh but also showcases the balm’s beautiful buds and pistils. Packed with nutrients and essential oils blessed by Mother Earth herself, Elemis’ Rose Cleansing Balm features nourishing cleansing balms that leave your skin silky soft and rejuvenated. In addition to the balm, the company offers eye and body care products as well as more conventional skincare options like serums and exfoliating treatments.

This was the first product Ive used from this brand and the soothing balm melts into a rich cleansing oil to dissolve make-up and impurities on the skin. Upon contact with water, it emulsifies to a hydrating milk that easily rinses off, creating an exceptional cleansing experience. It nourishes the skin’s lipid barrier, soothing it with hydration, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking radiant.

It is for sure a well formulated cleansing balm made from the finest ingredients which is super important for removing dirt, oil, and makeup without causing irritation. The unique balm formula contains no Phthalates (a synthetic chemical that can be irritating to sensitive skin), SLS (a chemical commonly found in cosmetics).

I have been using This now for about 3 weeks and love how easy it is to remove a full face of makeup and how amazing my skin feels after. We are currently in the Sequoias and all the hiking and experiences leave you extremely dirty and dusty. Using the balm to deep clean and effortlessly remove all traces of eww was sooo nice! 😂 THIS is definitely being added to My Holy Grail: Skincare Edition. It is super soft, hydrating and moisturizing . And most importantly this cleanser smells sooo amazing!! I will be honest and say their products are a little more on the pricy-er side but what skincare with proven clinal trials isnt?! You can save 15% off when you sign up to their email list. Also you can check out all their products HERE.

I am for sure trying out other products from the brand! Have you used this brand before? Let me know in the comments below.

May Sephora faves || What I’ve been loving

Happy June! We are half way thru the year. That is insane to even say OMG! Nonetheless here we are in another month, so here are last months faves.

1. Hydrating hyaluronic under eye mask

These are soooo good!! I love hyaluronic anything because of its benefits. I tend to dry out under my eyes so these are super moisturizing and they are sparkly so its like a lil party for your eyes😂

2. Bronze eyeshadow palette

Ahhh. I love Natasha Denona! Her products are LEGIT a d she doesn’t disappoint with this palette. I found myself repeatedly wearing the warm browns and oranges because it paired so well with my skin tone. This will definitely be added to My Holy Grail: Makeup Edition

3. Born this way super coverage concealer

Ok can we talk about this concealer! Its so good. It is super full coverage and can me used to bot only conceal but to contour as well. Its also a very hydrating formula so it wont dry you out under your eyes or get cakey. This will be my main concealer for that very reason.

4. Nars lipstick in Belle de jour

I love a natural nude lip look. I saw this on another blogger whose has the same skin tone as me and knew immediately I was going to love it. The formula is very creamy so it isn’t a matte lipstick more so a shiny one and definitely wont leave your lips dry.

6 ingredients you have at home that can be used as a facial to promote healthy skin.

I want to start off by saying Self-care is NOT selfish! I know personally as a mom I need to be the best for my family. Whether you are a mom, wife, girlfriend or significant other. That role requires so much of you as a person to fulfill. Often times our wanting to fill this role successfully and be the best leaves us feeling burnt out and tired. You can really lose yourself if you dont be careful and take time for you.

Think of this as your new motto!! You cant give your best without feeling your best! It starts with YOU! So make sure you do something today that makes you happy💕 I know personally I love giving myself mini facials at home. Regular upkeep of the face promotes healthy blood flow to the skin which keeps your face looking healthy, plump, moisturized and youthful skin. I usually combine my mini facial with a loooong bubble bath and a can of my fave Hey mama wines. Now whether its for 10 min or 35 min (sometimes there really isnt time) I take it and do so regularly for me.. just to sit in quiet and reflect and enjoy.

I cant stress enough how important it is to set aside time for yourself. Self care is not selfish and you can start with a at home facial with ingredients found in your home:

•use coconut oil to take away any makeup, dirt or buildup then wipe away

•use sugar & tea tree oil to exfoliate any dead skin

•use avocado & honey as a facial mask and let sit for 15-30 min (this is where you pour you a glass of wine😉 and relax)

•after rinsing apply olive oil as a moisturizer…..

Tiara’s NO! Wine glasses UP!

I got lash extensions: How I clean them & take my make up off

SURPRISE!! So I recently got lash extensions, now that I have drastically grown out my lashes with my fave Lash growth serum my lashes are strong enough and long enough to hold lash extensions. Now I’ve had them before and loved how easy and fun they are. They make getting ready so much faster! I used to offer them as a service at my salon and was always asked by clients how to clean and keep them up. Which leaves me to believe that many don’t know how to clean them. If you do get lash extensions obvi your lash tech should tell you how to maintain and clean them. But as a beauty professional myself for many years now I know that by simply explaining something is not the same as showing or actually recommending products. So I thought todays post would be great to tell how I clean them and over all how I take my makeup off with lash extensions on.

First things first, the whole reason why there is a certain way lash extensions should be cleaned is because certain products can break down the adhesive that holds the extension in place faster then others. Cyanoacrylate is the main ingredient in lash extension adhesives and is considered a polar molecule. Polar molecules are broken down by other polar molecules. So the same can be said about non polar molecules. There are so many cosmetics on the market that contain both but the ones that contain more more polar molecules should be avoided in order to preserve the life of the extension. Makeup that comes in direct contact with your lashes like eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow and makeup removers need to be chosen wisely and most definitely should not contain oil that will break down the lash extension adhesive. And if they should contain a slight amount then you should try to keep it away from the eye area. One of my skincare products contain a type of oil so when I apply at night I make sure not to apply any around my entire eye area.

First I take a BILLIE WONDER WIPE to take off most of the makeup. These wipes are soo amazing they are part of my My Holy Grail: Skincare Edition. It is basically like having an entire skincare routine in one single wipe! They are plant based super thick wipes that come soaked in a gentle blend of cleansers that lift makeup, dirt, oil, glitter and everything else. The wipes are infused with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C serums. Both very important ingredients to use in your skin care regimen on a regular basis.

Second I take the MAELOVE REFRESHER CLEANSER to clean away any left over makeup. This face wash uses a triple blend of AHAs to thoroughly clean and revitalize skin. Its great too because its formulated for even the most sensitive skin and gentle enough to use multiple times a day. It has a nice peppermint and spearmint smell to it also that is just so revitalizing. I rinse with water then wipe clean with a towel. Then I clean around my eyelids and lash line very carefully removing any dirt or built up residue. (For deep cleaning, which I do once a week I use baby shampoo to clean my lashes)

Third I still apply my DIME BEAUTY LASH SERUM. I do this to keep my natural lashes healthy and strong. This serum is so amazing and is the reason I am able to even wear lash extensions. I grew out my natural lashes in 8 weeks and did a full blog post HERE.

Next I continue with my regular skincare routine. FULL details are listed HERE.

I love this routine and have been using it for several months and will contginue to do so. Im very happy with the way it has changed my skin overall. I always say that its not really what you use its how you use it. So even the lower end skincare will get you results as long as you use it regularly!

Introducing Fenty’s new blurring skin tint [Review]

Okay So I wanted to provide a quick review on the new Fenty Eaze drop blurring skin tint. The Sephora Seasonal Savings Event Is happening right now and this should definitely be on your list…

This is a lightweight, buildable light-to-medium coverage liquid skin tint that leaves your skin looking blurred and smoothed. This product is Free of parabens and phthalates. It is also vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

I have been wearing it since our trip to vegas about two weeks ago and I loooove it. It is super easy-to-apply. Its very flexible and will quickly yet visibly even out your complexion with a blurred effect. I love the HydraBlend complex within it that causes it to be humidity & sweat, transfer-resistant! It lasted all day in the hot Vegas heat with no touch ups. It has a smooth texture that layers well with primer and skincare. Overall I give this product a 10 out of 10 and will add it to my Holy grail.

HOW TO USE IT

This product was made to layer with your skincare snd primer so after applying all your skincare You will definitely need to Shake well before use and apply a few drops with fingers or foundation brush or as I love to use a beauty blender.
It is buildable so you can put as much as needed to achieve the coverage.desired.

6 steps to a fresh face || My basic morning skincare routine

Good morning! Great afternoon! Good evening! Whenever you should read this, HI!

Today I am sharing my everyday basic skincare routine. Lets keep in mind however, I use and try a lot of products on the daily for work. So I am sharing the basic foundation to my personal every day skin care routine that has not changed or should I say I use these products non stop. I just incorporate the other products I try within this basic routine I’m about to share with you. Jeez! I really hope that wasn’t confusing lol.

You can read about my full night time winter skin routine in detail Here

The first thing I love doing when I wake up is cleansing the face. I put a lot of serums and creams on at night so I make sure I remove any leftover residue, dirt or oil.

STEP 1: Ultra calming cleanser

Then I moisturize. Its super important to restore moisture back into the skin after you have just cleansed and removed any type Of natural oil your skin may have produced in order to protect it. I love using a moisturizer that has an SPF in it.

STEP 2: Hydra visor moisturizer

Next I love using a serum that you can layer over your moisturizer. This particular serum is my absolute fave because it brightens, hydrates, nourishes and provides antioxidant protection to help with premature aging.

STEP 3: Glow maker antioxidant serum

Ive talked about my struggle with under eye bags before. Im forever trying products that help reduce under eye bags and puffiness. This enhancer I have been using for months now and really love it. This serum or gel helps with hydration, textural issues, anti aging, dullness snd puffiness.

STEP 4: Eye enhancer

Next step is to enhance my lashes! I loooove these because they are super light weight and natural looking and yet wispy enough to make a small statement.

STEP 5: Lashes

Last up is my lip mask. Now if you have been reading along in past posts, you might have seen this lip mask amongst my Holy Grail of skin care products. And thats just it. This lip mask, although it is made to go on at night. I wear literally EVERY SINGLE DAY!! Its a total gsme changer. Especially on days where I am just chilling fresh faced and no makeup. I am obsessed with it because it makes my lips feel extra hydrated and supple. Like they are always ready to be kissed! Bwuahahahaha!! Seriously tho. My hubby always kisses me just to get a lil on his lips. Its the sweetest and most hilarious thing.

STEP 6: Lip mask


Until next time…
