Colourpop Lux Lipsticks: Review, Photos, and Swatches

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review, photos, and swatches of six Colourpop Lux Lipsticks, three of the Creme Lux Lipsticks from the original launch four months ago and three of the new Matte Lux Lipsticks that launched recently. I had been thinking about getting the lipsticks when they first launched but never got around to it until the Matte Lux Lipsticks launched and they were doing a buy two get one free promotion. I ended up getting six lipsticks for the price of three! These are quite inexpensive and in line with Colourpop's usual pricing, $7.00 each.

Maybelline TattooStudio Brow Tint Pen Makeup Review: Is It the Alternative to Microblading?

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of the Maybelline TattooStudio Brow Tint Pen Makeup. The brow pendulum is swinging again and nowadays people are into brows that can look like they're real (which is why tattooed brows like microblading has become popular) over more "done" brows with pomade and concealer. This multi-pronged brow pen is supposed to be the answer to getting naturally filled in looking brows by giving off the effect of natural hair-like strokes.

Looking at this brow pen, I can't help but think of those three pronged eyeliner pens that were supposed to make eyeliner easier for beginners but ended up being more trouble than it was worth. The question is, is this a dud like its three pronged predecessor?

Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush Review

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to share my thoughts on the Foreo LUNA Play Plus Facial Cleansing Brush. I've talked about skincare before on the blog but this is the first mention of any sort of skincare device. 

I first heard about Foreo when they launched their LUNA cleansing brush, especially since it seemed like a great alternative to the Clarisonic facial cleansing brush (which was dominating the skincare device scene). The Foreo LUNA intrigued me because it didn't deal with a brush/bristles but with silicone points instead. Of course, the price was too much for me to afford on a graduate student budget so I admired from afar. 

Later on they launched the LUNA Play, a mini version of the full size but I was not interested in a device that only had 100 uses for $39.00. Finally, they launched their Luna Play Plus which is a miniaturized version of their full size LUNA cleansing brushes and a better version of the LUNA Play. Combine it with the ULTA 20% off sale and I picked up the Luna Play Plus.

Glossier Lash Slick Mascara - Review and Photos

I Purchased This Referral Link

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of the Glossier Lash Slick Mascara, their first mascara launch. Like with all Glossier products, there was a ton of hype behind the product and I was so intrigued by the marketing.

On their instagram, they were saying that this mascara "has been tested and proven to last and hold curl for twelve hours". If you're East/South East Asian like me, you've probably been blessed with super straight lashes that point downwards. If I do wear mascara, it has to be waterproof because waterproof mascaras are usually the only ones that will keep the curl in my eyelashes.  Given how Lash slick was described as being water-resistant but still keeping the curl, I was down to try it.
