This week I thought I would do an extra beauty blog post for you. I thought we could talk about some of my favorite lipsticks to wear in the summer time. Think pink, coral and just all the bright goodness anyone could wish for. I have selected 6 lipsticks: 3 high end and 3 more affordable options that I absolutely adore for the spring time.
Shame on me! I’ve been a bad beauty blogger. Why? Because this review is so long overdue. I have had these products for close to four years and I just never got around to writing this up. And that even though one of these blushes is one of my all time favorites. What’s wrong with me? So even though I should have definitely made this blog post a long time ago, let’s not ramble and get down to business and on to the review.

Let’s talk cult beauty products for a minute okay? In the world of makeup there are these products that quickly and consistently have a cult status. In terms of makeup application tools, the makeup sponge, once shunned as a useless, made a huge comeback when Beauty Blender launched their revolutionary new sponge. And as with everything that becomes an overnight sensation, other brands started copying it. I already reviewed the Primark one, which I love. However, the original copy of the Beauty Blender is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

Spring time is the perfect time for trying some perfumes. It should therefore come as no surprise that some of my all time fragrances are also perfect for spring. I have made a selection of 5 of my fragrances that I think are perfect for wearing in the spring time.

Some people love foundation, but when it comes to base products, I’m a concealer kind of girl. I’m not sure why, but I just LOVE trying concealers. It all started with the OG blogger favorite: Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I haven’t looked back. Even back when I didn’t wear any foundation, I was already wearing concealer. So yeah, concealer is my jam. When L’Oreal released a True Match concealer to go with their True Match foundation which I love, I knew I had to try it.

In their new collection for spring/ summer 2018, Essence naturally came out with a bunch of new lipsticks and lipglosses. I decided to try a few! By now I have been able to put these on my lips to see how they feel, look and wear. For this review, I have grouped all 5 lipsticks together as I felt the individual lipsticks didn’t warrant their individual reviews. Since we have quite a few things to talk about, let’s dive straight in.

After trying the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Skin Essence, I knew I wanted to try some alternatives. It was the first skin essence I tried and it was a product I had never used before. So what is a skin essence? It is a step in your skincare routine that you apply after cleansing but before moisturizing. The product helps to have your skincare sink into the skin much better. If you have dry skin like me, it’s an absolute life save. So how did I fare with this The Body Shop version?
