Well...August has been a bit of a crazy up and down month, which is why I haven't been posting as consistently. I apologize but I have been creating blog posts and content but everything is just a little incomplete because I haven't taken pictures. Have you ever had a creative block? I'm kind of there right now but I'm trying to pull out that funk. I have also been focusing a lot more on my inner beauty and I am determined to get more exercise in to get healthier, so that is another reason for the lack of posts. Anyways, this month has been a Tom Ford heavy month when it comes to makeup but are you really surprised? Haha... Happy September, guys! September is my birthday month and it will be quite eventful so stay tuned! 


Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm -I don't know why I ever stopped using this cleansing balm but I'm back on it again. I decided to stop buying makeup removing wipes for a bit, as i"m not traveling and I'm trying to be not as lazy. The double cleanse method has been a staple for the past few months and really helps me get every peck of dirt and makeup off my face. This balm is potent and melts away everything with just a little bit of product. Check out my full review here.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads - I don't think I can live without these exfoliating pads! They have turly transformed my skin since I got them and I have been using them once a week, religiously! They make my skin so soft and smooth! I have received compliments on my skin and people asking me how I get the texture of my skin to be they way it is, well... this is the secret! Check out my full review here.

Elemis Peptide⁴ Thousand Flower Mask - This new mask from Elemis is so luxurious! It's soothing soft floral fragrance lulls me into a relaxed state and it the cooling sensation feel so good on my skin! It really helps soothe, soften, and brighten the skin. My complexion just instantly looks better after using it. Plus this product is meant to sync with you body's natural circadian rhythm to work optimally when your body is most accepting of skincare. Read all about it in my review here

Elemis Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil - This isn't a new skincare product to my routine, I have actually been using it for over a year or so now. This cream-oil has no greasy texture or feeling but it deeply hydrates and nourishes your skin! It also doesn't feel heavy at all on the skin. This cream is meant to work with your body's sleep cycle to deliver the most optimal results! This isn't a gimmick but it really does nourish and transform your skin overnight! Learn more about the powers of this circadian rhythm technology in my review here.   

Elemis Peptide⁴ Eye Recovery Cream - New to the Elemis Peptide⁴ range, as is the mask, this eye cream is delightfully lightweight! It feels more like an eye serum than an eye cream but still delivers a ton of moisture and treatment to the eye area! I actually prefer this lighter texture because it feels very refreshing and you are less likely to clog the skin in that area, causing milia to form. I have had issues with heavy eye creams in the past and this one is such a dream! It feels amazing and again it is meant to sync with your sleep cycle! 

Lululun Deep Moisturizing Mask - I bought this large pack of daily sheet masks because I have been using sheet masks so frequently. I wanted to find something that was a large pack of sheet mask for a reasonable price but I am also very fond of Japanese sheet masks, so I went with this highly rated daily sheet mask pack. This pack contains 32 sheet mask and intended for those who want to use sheet masks more frequently. I have been using Lululun Yuzu Sheet Masks and I enjoy them a lot but they are the one mask one-time use packs and I have almost run out of mine. Plus, using sheet masks regularly can be so costly! However, I have noticed a HUGE difference in my skin since I started using these masks twice a week. My skin is significantly softer, hydrated, and my skin looks very plump! The lines around my mouth, which is my biggest concern has definitely plumped out recently. I'm not saying it's because of the sheet masks but I think it is a contributing factor into the amazing condition my skin has been in lately. Check out my full review here.\

Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum - This vitamin c packed serum is seriously amazing! I have tried vitamin c serums in the past that haven't delivered me any results or improvements to my skin but I feel like this one is really working! My complexion seems brighter and fresher. I also love the way it makes my skin feel, it feels soft and supple. I have just started using it this month but i really hope to see improvements in my dark spots!

Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream - This is actually my second jar of this product and my first one I literally scraped clean because I loved it so much! This water cream feels insanely light but packs so much hydration into my skin, it's amazing! It feels very refreshing, light, and cool on the skin. It is very soothing but also maintains hydration all day and night! Definitely one of my favorite moisturizers ever!

Stacked Skincare Collagen Boosting Micro-Roller - Since last year, I have been using a dermaroller religiously and I have seen a huge difference in my skin! It has really helped plump out my fine lines and minimize the look of a lot of my lines. I genuinely believe that this really helps with lines and wrinkles because my laugh lines have totally plumped out! You can learn more about how this device actually works in my review here


La Prairie Essence-In-Foundation SPF 25 - I can't get enough of this foundation! I have literally used only this foundation for the past two months! It just offers such a flawless finish and a stunning healthy glow but looks and feels like there is nothing on the skin! While I still have my doubts about its skin treatment abilities, I have found my skin looking the best it ever has in a while. This foundation is the ultimate everyday foundation for those who want some coverage but hate the look of foundation sitting on the skin. Check out my full review here.

Tom Ford Golden Mink Eye Quad - A new addition of my collection, this classic quad from the brand offers a beautiful sparkling and soft eye look that is so stunning for day or night! It has been a quad I have admired for a while and I am so happy to finally have it has part of my collection. I have been using it quite regularly this month. 

Tom Ford Honeymoon Eye Quad - I have rediscovered my love for this quad after having my makeup done by Tom Ford Artistry Executive, Carter Daniel. Check out my interview with him and the look here. This quad is exceptional in quality and the warm colors flatter practically every skin tone! The shadows are so easy to blend and create a stunning luminous eye look! 

Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream an Powder Eye Duo - Paired with Tom Ford Honeymoon, this cream color enhanced eye shadows and offers a stunning luminosity alone or when used as a base! The peachy shade flatters my skin tone so well and it just looks great as a base for most looks!

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Glow Stick - This has just been my go-to cheek product all summer long! It is so easy to use and carry with you if you don't have time to do your makeup at home! It blends so easily and seamlessly into your base and just offers the most stunning glow! It just gives my complexion a freshness that is unmatched by other products! This is a must-have! Check out my full review here.

Tom Ford Illuminating Highlight Pen in Dusk Bisque - This is a gorgeous brightening and illuminating corrector! It is pricey and yes, there are similar products but this one has such a great formula! It is very pigmented and it has the perfect peach tint! It really covers, corrects, and brightens the under eye area. It feels super light and always looks beautiful! 

Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Delight Sensorial Lip Oil - I broke my rule of not paying ridiculous prices for sheer lip products but I was just to curious to say no. I'm so glad I did though because this lip oil is AMAZING! I'm not one to touch up my makeup, even my lip color throughout the day, but this product feels so good on my lips, I want it there all the time! While it is sheer, it look beautiful over a little lip liner for a sexy and natural plump lip! Check out my full review here.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liners - Why does everything good have to discontinued??! Why???! While I'm not a huge lip liner person, these are my favorite and unfortunately, they are discontinuing the formula! ARRGGHH! I finally started using lip liners again and now I have to find new ones! If any one has any recommendations let me know! I've been using these in conjunction with my Sisley Lip Delight!

YSL Couture Blush in Nude Blouse - I have a weak spot for nude blushes... I couldn't pass up this shade in the new Couture formula. It's a very sheer formula but it builds really well to a soft flush! The color is just the perfect nude with a bit of warmth and a soft and sheer shimmer. It really is like a sexy nude blouse for your cheeks. Check out my full review and swatches here.

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops - I hadn't used these in a very long time but rediscovered them very recently in my collection. These are highly pigmented highlighting drops! They don't mess around with pigment! I take a very tine bit and dot in the area I want it. I recommend doing a section at a time because these tend to dry quite quickly. I like to blend them in with a beauty sponge for the most seamless and natural blend. They are quite metallic and very intense! I've been really enjoying using them underneath the glossy highlighter from my Tom Ford Glow Stick!

Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume & Curl Mascara - This mascara has been the only one I have used for months! It really gives me the most beautiful fluttery lashes and it separates all my lashes, even the little hairs! The formula is really buildable and it never smudges! It is a truly beautiful everyday mascara and I love that the tube is a squeeze tube! You can get all the product out!

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet in Light Crimson - Other than only wearing the Sisley Lip Delight, I wore this liquid lip color. This vibrant pinky-coral shade is so beautiful and would flatter most skin tones! I received so many compliments from people when I was out and about! I really forgot about this lip color for a long time but the color is so hard to resist. It was featured in my Peach, Orange, and Coral Lip Edit here, if you want other fun vibrant lip options!
