MILK MAKEUP LIP + CHEEK STICK REVIEW

Image
The Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek Stick is the perfect two-in-one cream product! This is formulated to be used on the cheeks as a luminous blush, or as a hydrating tinted lip balm.  I got this product as a free gift from Sephora last year, but I have been wanting to purchase it for so long before that! I have always been drawn to the clean, minimalistic design of Milk Makeup's products, and this product has been the perfect introduction to the brand! All of Milk's products are cruelty free, vegan, and gluten free. It is also a Clean brand, meaning it is formulated without many potentially harmful ingredients commonly found in cosmetics including; sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances and more. This is also formulated with mango butter, avocado oil, and apricot oil, which are meant to hydrate the skin and help the formula blend seamlessly.   I have the mini size  in the shade "Werk", which retails for $18 at Sephora . To anyone looking to purchase any of the c

KKW BEAUTY CLASSIC BLOSSOM EYESHADOW PALETTE REVIEW

A few months ago I purchased the KKW Beauty Classic Blossom Palette, and since then, it has become one of my absolute favorite items in my makeup collection! Before I bought this palette, I previously tried a powder highlighter and a lipstick from KKW Beauty's 2019 holiday collection and loved the quality of both, so I was very excited to try another product from the brand!  The Classic Blossom Palette is made up of 10 beautiful primarily pink-toned and berry shades, with a range of finishes.  The theme of this palette is inspired by Kim Kardashian 's daughter, Chicago, as well as Kim's love of cherry blossoms.  This palette retails for $45 on the KKW website, as well as online and in stores at Ulta. I was able to purchase this during a sale at Ulta, so I ended up getting it for less than half the price, so I would definitely keep a look out for any upcoming discounts!  The matte shades are some of the best I have ever used, with the perfect amount of pigmentation to give

This list is comprised of some old favorites that have been featured in many of my end of the year wrap-ups, as well as new products that I tried for the first time in 2020.

This shadow will give you a glittery

My Favorite Albums of 2020

Happy New Year! For my first post of 2021, I want to reflect back on some of my favorite albums of the previous year. 2020 was without a doubt a pretty bad year for everyone, but at least the music wasn't! During such isolating times, music connected us all more than ever before. Listed below is the music that became the soundtrack of 2020 for me!  folklore // Taylor Swift Without a doubt, my favorite album of 2020 is Taylor Swift's Folklore . This album was surprise released in the summer and was made in just a few months at the beginning of the pandemic. In so many ways, it reinvented not only Taylor as an artist, but also the way music is created and released in the time of a worldwide pandemic. She provided a sense of escapism in the music she released this year through her storytelling approach to the writing.  Folklore  is the defining sound of very strange times we are all living through right now.  This album has meant so much to so many in the past year, myself includ
