The leaves have begun to fall and Thanksgiving is only 16 days way. I guess you could say fall is here to stay. I’m personally not a fan of fall because that means we’re one step closer to winter, but I do love the mix of reds and yellows and browns that it brings. Inspired by the mix of colors … and the fact Sephora was calling my name, I decided to do a little pre Black Friday shopping.
I’ve mentioned ColourPop products on here before, but in case you missed it: if you haven’t tried them you need to hop on the bandwagon now! They’re absolutely amazing! The ColourPop shadow formula is just as creamy and smooth as their Lippie Stix. I recently ordered three of their fall inspired colors and I’m in love. Brady is a matte, soft dusty rose shade that would look great with any burgundy inspired look. Muse is a shimmery copper shade that would also pair well with Brady for a fun vibrant look. And Stereo is the ultimate metallic burgundy shade with hints of copper and violet pink mixed in. I can’t wait to create fun holiday looks with these shadows.
If you can’t tell by now I’m in love with burgundy and deep wine shades of reds and purples. So imagine my excitement when King Kylie announced her new Kyshadow palette. I about passed out. I just had to get my hands on this ASAP, which if you know anything about Kylie Cosmetics products they sell out in a matter of minutes. But my drastic measures paid off and I was able to get my hands on one the day it released, and I must say it was worth it. The pigmentation of these shadows are just as amazing as the Lip Kits. They’re formula is creamy and workable and the shades look beautiful on brown skin tones. My only criticism is that the palette is smaller than it looked on screen. But for $42 I got nine shades which is still a great deal!
Talk about disappointment. I was wandering the aisles of Sephora this past weekend and came across this facial cleansing sponge by boscia. Reading the packaging it says that it cleanses and exfoliates skin and leaves it smoother and softer. To the touch it reminded me of a dry sponge that you scrub dishes with, hard and coarse. Obviously you wouldn’t want to scrub your face with something that rough, but the exfoliating aspect is what prompted me to buy this product. I’m always excited about exfoliating (I know I’m a little weird). Long story short this ended up doing nothing more than absorbing the cleanser off my face. I probably would have gotten better results using a Scotch-Brite sponge from the dollar store. My face did not feel clean at all, let alone smoother or softer. Good thing I saved my receipt.
I’ve held off purchasing this product for about a year now. And this past weekend (again while wandering the aisles of Sephora) I decided to take the plunge and try it out. Plus I don’t have any peal masks in my collection so why not. After trying it out I’m kind of on the fence. On one hand, it did absorb the excess oils from my skin and leave it feeling fresh and clean. But applying the product was difficult and not user friendly. The formula is very tacky and does not spread well, so it was hard to apply an even layer. Overall, I’ll be keeping this product around because I liked the end result, but I won’t be buying it again.
