    Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster, Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator, and Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm Review

    Clinique is another brand that I’ve been using since I was in college, and one of the first skincare lines I’ve ever committed to. Not everything from their brand was suitable for my skin, I find that the cleansers were too harsh on my skin, but I’ve had great experiences with their toner, moisturizers and cleansing balm.

    I was recently sent three products from Clinique and I was so thrilled because I swear by two of the products I was sent, and the other product was one I’ve been eyeing for a while!

    Bobbi Brown Crush Lip Color, Shimmer Brick & Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm Review

    Bobbi Brown has a special place in my heart, not only for the exceptional quality of her products, but because some of my very first makeup items were from the brand. I still have my first matte eyeshadow palette ever, and her classic Petal Rose Shimmer Brick was one of my very first highlighters ever – and this was from way back when “highlighting” wasn’t even trendy yet!

    So I’m pumped that I get to review some of her new releases. In this blog post, I will be reviewing the:

    • Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Sunset;
    • Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm in Pink Glow; and
    • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Rose.

    Check out my thoughts on these beauties below!

    10 Things I’d Buy First If All My Makeup Disappeared (Drugstore)

    A few weeks ago I saw Youtube videos by Emily Noel (emilynoel83) and Jessica Braun (JAMbeauty89) on the 10 things they’d buy first if all their makeup disappeared and I love the idea of curating a list like this because it truly shows which products I SERIOUSLY cannot live without.

    So I decided to list out my picks, but only from the drugstore because to be completely honest, if I did lose all my makeup I would be too depressed to repurchase anything from Sephora or department stores at first. Realistically, the first place I’d hit up would be Ulta, Target, Walgreens or Walmart (or Priceline in Australia) LOL.

    There’s a lot of overlap between this post and my  Priceline Makeup Favorites & Recommendations and Top 5 Best Affordable Drugstore Makeup posts, so make sure you also have a read of those posts!

    Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick Review

    Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick

    I recently got a wonderful package from Shu Uemura, and it contains five shades of the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited lipstick range! I was so stoked because I love Shu Uemura lipsticks (especially their packaging!), and the colors were so bright and fun.

    These newly reformulated lipsticks come in 38 shades and are supposed to be very moisturizing despite their super opaque and intense color payoff.

    Check out my Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick review and swatches below!
