Because beauty shouldn’t cost you a fortune

I used to consider ColourPop as a brand intended for teenagers, with their somewhat flamboyant image (and I think myself as someone at the age that use “serious makeup”); until I could not hold my curiosity anymore and got myself a super shock eyeshadow set. OMG, their eyeshadows have the best formulas I’ve ever seen – super soft and creamy. When you touch them, they sink in a little bit like cushions (just because they are so creamy). They are really pigmented and really long lasting as well. I seriously consider only use ColourPop‘s eyeshadows from now on. With only a fraction of other brands’ eyeshadows, it has one of the most luxurious formula and gorgeous color selections; especially with eyeshadows, you always want to try new colors; with ColourPop, you can keep up with this ever-changing industry without breaking the bank!

Personalized supplement subscription from Care/of

Businesses use subscriptions as pricing strategies as well as a way to lock in customers. Yet, I have to admit, many really are beneficial for both company and customers. My life evolves around subscription services now, I get my beauty subscription from Sephora Play (reviews here), smoothie subscription from Daily Harvest (reviews here), and now a supplement subscription, believe it or not, from Care/of. Instead of doing all the complicated research on your own, you can now simply take a test on Care/of by filling in your profile and needs, they will give you a list of 4 to 5 suggested vitamins that you can add to you subscription; or you can also add your own. The site also provide research information that back up each type of supplement’s validity. My wish is to improve my skin, my memory, my stomach comfortless and become more energetic. And care/of gave me a list of suggestions that suit all my needs. I’ve never NOT forgotten to take supplement everyday until this. They are individually packaged for each day, …

Brand I Love: Drunk Elephant

I’ve used these 4 serums from Drunk Elephant for a month; and now I am ready to report back (cause skincare haul is just adding noises to the already too crowded world of information right?) Let me put it out there first, I really really love Drunk Elephant, their product as well as the whole experience. They have these two sets of serums, one for the morning and one for the night. Each set has two serums that works perfectly together. This solves the dilemma I constantly face when trying out new brand: what’s the starting point! Drunk Elephant is a clean brand, with only non-toxic, potent ingredients. The products and ingredients they use are nothing new; but they feel so much more gentle on skin compare to other similar ones I’ve tried. Any one with sensitive skins would love Drunk Elephant. And they are offering 20% sitewide right now! Morning You should use each two serums together, the B-Hydra counteract the stickyness of C-Firma. B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Gel: It has a gel texture and is …
