SWATCH & REVIEW: Life's Entropy Galaxy Glow Illuminators in Constellation and Solstice

I Purchased This

When it comes to the "strobing" trend, it's truly a case of "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet". That is, strobing is the same as highlighting/illuminating and though it's a recycled trend, I'm down for looking as lit as possible. 

Granted I've been hesitant in the past when it comes to illuminators or highlighters for fear of enhancing my pores. Nowadays I've learned to deal with it because if I'm looking like the light is shining from my face, no one's going to care about a few obvious pores. Today's review will be on the Life's Entropy Galaxy Glow Illuminator. 


Where to Purchase: Life's Entropy Cosmetics
Price: A sample costs $1.50-$2.00 for 1 gram, the full size costs $12.00 for 16 grams
Do they test on animals?: The company does not test on animals.
Packaging: The samples come in clamshells and the full sizes come in a tube with a pump applicator.

If you're looking an indie illuminator to try, feel free to scope the review! I have two shades to share today, Constellation and Solstice.

REVIEW: Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask

Press Sample

When it comes to skincare, sometimes American products or American routines just don't cut it. If you've heard about the Korean 10-Step Skincare routine, you might have thought it was excessive. But once you see how smooth and youthful some of these women are, you'll be wanting to incorporate more of their secrets into your skincare.

I was introduced to the idea of "Sleeping Masks" or "Sleeping Packs" a few weeks ago. These are meant to be the last step in your skincare routine, applied after all your other night creams, serums, and/or essences. Not all sleeping masks are the same. While some work to add a ton of moisture to your skin, others work to just "seal in" the moisture from any moisturizers you're using. 

The Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask is a super popular sleeping mask and I've been using it three times a week for a good two months, so I really had the opportunity to test it out for my review!

Where to Purchase: PeachandLily (use my link to get $10 off your first order of $50 or more and I get $10)
Price: $10.00 for 50 ml or $24.00 for 80 grams. 
Packaging: The mask comes in either the $10.00 tube or $24.00 jar. I suggest the tube since it'll be more hygienic to use!

Decanting Lip Tars into Lipgloss Tubes (DIY OCC Lip Tar RTW)

I Purchased This Affiliate Link

Hey everyone! Today's post is on how you can decant your OCC lip tars from the original squeeze tube packaging into your lipgloss tubes in order to make your own version of the OCC RTW.


Recently, OCC came out with their Ready To Wear or RTW versions of their lip tars. It's the same lip tar formula but packaged into a lipgloss tube instead of the squeeze tube for easy application and touch up. I can't take credit for this idea, I got this from the MakeupAddiction subreddit. It's such a simple idea, I don't know why I didn't think to do this before. 

You can watch the video if you prefer to watch me talk about how to do it, reasons why to do it, etc., or you can keep reading below!

REVIEW, COMPARISON, VIDEO + GIVEAWAY: Real Techniques Collector's Edition Eyelining Set

Press Sample

I'm very pleased and excited to review this Limited Edition Real Techniques Collector's Edition Eyelining Set of brushes. Despite the name, you can use this for other eye makeup related purposes like applying eyeshadow or eyebrow powders. 

Spoiler alert: I really like this set and I like it because it's what I always wanted their Starter Set of eye brushes to be. I'll give a full review below (you can watch the accompanying Youtube video or read the review) but I want to seriously recommend this brush set for anyone who prefers using smaller eye brushes or has a smaller eye shape.

Be sure to read towards the end where I'll be giving away one of these sets!
