What is it?

Over the years I saw a lot of excitement about the Fabfitfun subscription box all over social media and I wanted to see what the hype was about. I myself, like to explore through different subscription services to get my hands on a variety of products. Usually, services come with sample size products which is the best way to see if you like the product or not.

 

With FabFitFun, you receive full-sized fashion, beauty and fitness products that are worth more than $200, just for $49.99! There’s no commitment – you can enroll for just a season to see if you like what you’re getting or do it annually and save a few dollars.

One thing different about this box is that you can see what you’re getting before you place your order versus other subscription services where you kind of just get a surprise in the mail.

 

The Products:

Summer 2018 Total Value $340.99 –

  1. Tarte Tarteist PRO glo highlight & contour palette (I already have one so I’m holding it off for a future giveaway!) – Value $45.00
  2. Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Value $29.00, I was excited about seeing this in here!
  3. Orlando Play Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray – Value $34.00
  4. FOREO LUNA! fofo – This was why I re-subscribed for this seasons box, the value of this is $89.00!
  5. COOLA Classic Face SPF 50 White Tea – Value $32.00
  6. Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish – Value $14.99
  7. Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel – Value $39.00
  8. Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case – Value $58.00

 

Worth it?

As you can see, this box is worth $340.99. I actually did spend $45.00 on the Tarte PRO go palette last year so the prices are pretty accurate. If you are into subscriptions and like trying out new things, I think FabFitFun is a great way to do so to get a variety of products. First-time subscribers can always find $10 coupons online!

Too Faced?

exif_temp_image 3.JPGThe Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer, a baked luminous glow bronzer – the name says it all. Not only is this my top favorite bronzer, but it’s also my top favorite beauty product. I’ve recommended it to a few people and they can agree as well!

It’s the perfect formula and shade for my skin tone. Since there are two shades in one, I used it both separately to bronze and highlight my face as well as combined – all over my face. It gives such a beautiful, natural glow. I can’t get enough of this.

What are some of your favorite bronzers?

Keep on sparkling, XO!

 

Beauty Water, Anyone?

IMG_6482.JPG
I received a lot of questions about the recent story I posted on my Instagram about the Beauty Water – what is it and why do you need it.
My favorite part of my beauty routine is using my toner!
Key Benefits:
⁃It restores your pH balance
⁃It refreshes your skin leaving it hydrated
⁃It leaves your skin looking radiant
After I wash my face and dry it, I use my toner right before I apply my serum/moisturizer.
This one has been my favorite and is available at Sephora or on Sokoglam. Another alternative, which is also a favorite, is the Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic available at Target
So why tone? To restore, refresh and stay radiant!⠀
Keep on sparkling! XO

Recovery

Can anyone else relate to coming out of the cold season with dry lips? I for sure have been struggling with that. Not to mention the existence of liquid lipsticks making it ten times worse.

Aside from dry lips this winter, I was also dealing with my outer lips being darker than usual. After many trials and errors using other products and DIY techniques – which I could have been at fault since I probably wasn’t doing it correctly – but nonetheless, nothing seemed to be doing the job.

I thought I had found my holy grail, Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment – which I loved and still wanted to love, but it just did not do the job for me. It felt great on the lips but I found myself reapplying it every so often which was inconvenient.

Many people have been raving about the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, so I decided to give it a try. I’ve been dying to do a review on this product for so long now!

Where do I even begin? First off, the packaging is super cute! It comes with a little applicator which allows you to scoop out as little as you need. It’s made up of vitamin c, antioxidants and a mix of berries – all the good stuff you need in your beauty routine. It has a very subtle sweet scent which doesn’t linger on for long. The best part is that it glides on smoothly, leaving your lips shiny without leaving a greasy residue. A little goes a long way for sure. I not only use this as a night time mask but also during the day right before any event – especially if I’m going to throw on a liquid lipstick.

Within a few days, I definitely noticed a huge difference. It’s safe to say, “Toodles chapped lips, hello softness!” My darkness around my lip area also improved within a few nights of using this product. This is now my holy grail product – no more lip balms!

I’m new to this whole masking world and never realized how relaxing it can be after such a long day. With Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask and one of my other current faves the Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask  I throw these on right before bed and it’s an instant game changer.

The One

IMG_7030-1

Trying to find “The One” foundation for me has been so difficult lately. I started with MAC and then went on to Smashbox’s foundation right before they switched up their formula, I’ve been struggling to find the perfect match for myself.

I was never really into stick foundations however, I had to give the Hourglass a try. The title, Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick speaks for itself. From 26 shades to choose from, I found my matching one to be in the shade Amber. Testing it out in store, the first thing I noticed was that it made my face look flawless. Unlike most stick foundations, this went on smoothly and was easy to blend out. I noticed once I let the foundation set, I was in love with it.

So if you’re looking for a foundation to try out, I would definitely recommend this one!
