Words that get me excited: MAC x Star Trek Collection. Actually, any combination or variation of the words “Star Trek” and “makeup collection” will have me paying attention. I’m a huge fan of the show and I was excited for this collaboration honoring its 50th anniversary. Out of all the pieces – I was immediately drawn to the Highly Illogical Trip the Light Fantastic Powder.
I’ve been on the hunt for the Perfect Sunblock for years. Something lightweight, plays nice with makeup and doesn’t leave a white (or purple cast). This summer, thanks to Sheryll of The Wanderlust Project, Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence walked into my life and it’s pretty darn close to being my Perfect Sunblock.
September is here which means summer is (unofficially) over! It’s starting to cool down. Pumpkin spice everything is just round the corner. The leaves are going to start changing. And it’s (finally) time to chuck my sandals to the back of the closet in favor of cute riding boots. I can’t wait! But before we kick summer to the curb, here’s a round-up of some of my favorite, summer beauty discoveries.
My favorite part of my skincare routine are the triweekly, weekly and as needed treatments. These lotions, potions and masks helped make my skin what is it today – less prone to breakouts, more balanced, and have helped fade hyperpigmenation. Not only are the super effective, but most of them are quite fun to use!
After such great experiences with Ouidad’s Curl Immersion co-wash conditioners and deep conditioner, I was surprised by how hit/miss the stylers were. The Curl Immersion Silky Soufflé Setting Crème, the lightweight styling option in the collection, didn’t work for me at all. But the Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard? Steep learning curve but the results? Worth the fight.
