Almay recently released 15 shades of monochromatic eyeshadow quads, and each of these quads include four finishes: matte, satin, metallic, glitter. So basically… one shade, four ways!
I got these last month and was so excited to try these as I really like Almay’s face products as they’re suitable for my then-sensitive skin.
Check out my Almay Shadow Quad reviews and swatches below.

Another month, another exciting bunch of stuff to try from my ipsy GlamBag! Here’s my ipsy GlamBag December 2017 review for you guys!
The Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter is probably my favorite makeup release this year, and that’s a huge statement coming from someone like me. I love the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer so much (read: Top 5 Best Affordable Drugstore Makeup), and the new Physicians Formula Butter Blush shades are incredible (read: Physicians Formula Butter Blush Review; this is a review of the old shades). So of course I was so excited for this range of highlighters!
Read my Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter Swatches & Review to see if they lived up to my expectations.

The Gigi Hadid x Maybelline collection has got to be one of the most anticipated launches this year, and I was so excited I to try them out! The nude, blush pink packaging is beautiful and I’m drawn to anything pink, so this collection was calling out my name. But is everything as good as it seems?
Although these are from Maybelline, they’re all more expensive than regular Maybelline products, obviously because it has Gigi’s name attached to it. So, not everything from the collection is worth the price.
Read on to see swatches and for my reviews of the products!

I’m so excited I can finally share about some products from my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores!
I started weaning my son from breastfeeding shortly before he turned one in September, and boy did my skin hate me for that! I thought pregnancy acne was bad, but no one ever told me weaning acne would be far worse! To top it all off, seasonal changes was also a culprit. I had at least two new cystic acne appearing every week and my pores congested with tiny, skin-colored bumps with new ones appearing every day.
I started on the La Roche Posay Effaclar System Kit, as I mentioned in my latest Empties: Buy Or Bye? post and it tremendously helped clear up my cystic acne, but it stopped there. After all my cystic acne disappeared, I was left with tons of red spots and discoloration, and my pores were still very much congested – all throughout my T-Zone and jawline.
About 2-3 weeks ago I started using some products from the Elucent Anti Ageing range, and I was so shocked to see the results. I can’t believe the vast improvement I’ve been seeing on my skin.
Check out my before-and-after photos and reviews of the products below. I will share my whole my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores soon!
