Origins Skincare

Hey Everyone!
So sorry that I haven't posted in 2 weeks. I have been a little busy with midterms and such things.
So two weeks ago, I went to our local Origins counter, to pick up some samples. I was really looking forward to change my skincare routine because I was noticing that my skin had become rough, and was peeling. So, no more black soap for me. This is because I already have dry skin. So when I use products that remove the little oil I have in my skin, the body thinks that it needs to produce more oil, hence the pimples that I have been getting. Black soap definitely works for people that have oily skin, but it just not the right product for my skin. Anyways, I went to the counter, and picked up samples for cleansers, a moisturizer, and an eye cream. I started noticing a difference with my skin texture within 3 days. So after a week, I went back and shelled out about $137 to purchase my skin care items :). I bought the Origins Make a Difference Ultra Rich Rejuvenating Moisturizer (Little goes a long way with this one. It is extremely hydrating and the smell is absolutely divine), GinZing Eye Cream (this is not an anti-aging cream and it is only used for de-puffing the eye area and helps with black circles. The smell is not overpowering, and it has some light reflecting particles that really brighten up the eye area), Clean Energy Cleansing Oil (An oil cleanser that is used to remove makeup and forms into a light liquid once water touches it-after using it, my skin is still really smooth and doesn't feel tight), A Perfect World Cleanser ( This is not soapy at all, in comparison to the classing oil, but I feel more comfortable using this one when I wear makeup, but like all the other products the scent is really nice as well), last but not the least, I purchased a concealer as well. This is the Quick, Hide concealer. This blends extremely well into my skin. It doesn't work if you try to blend it, but you have to pat the concealer on. I am extremely happy with all the products, and if money is not an issue then I highly recommend going to your Origins counter. I find that Origins is a skin care brand-specifically and the people that work there know exactly what you need. Hope you try it out :)

2 Face Fashion Kits by BE

Hey Everyone!

Today I just want to review two kits that I ordered on the BareMinerals web site about three weeks ago. So the first one is the Face Fashion-Pure Happiness kit. So the kit comes with five pieces. 
1)The Happy Eyecolor-which is a light, shimmery mint color. 
2)The other eye color is Wowza. This is a rich, shimmery purple color.  3)It comes a a mini Big&Bright eyeliner called Indigo, which is a really nice purple-black color. 
4)The next piece is a mini 100% Natural Lip gloss in Funnel cake. This gloss is a really nice nude pink shade. 
5)The last piece is the Chuckle blush. This is a really nice coral colored, shimmery blush. All of these pieces are great for spring and summer. The colors are very wearable and I think would look good on just about everyone!


 This next kit is the Face Fashion-Pretty Wild Kit. The colors in this one are exceptionally gorgeous. They are absolutely perfect for going out in the spring during the evening or they can be transformed into dramatic makeup for the winter. The packaging makes it even more colorful. The five pieces are as follow

1) Violette Eyecolor- A matte lavender shade
2) Greenhouse Eyecolor- a matte moss color
3) Floret blush- a shimmery, sweet pink
4) Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Blue Black- I don't think you can tell that it is really blue if you have black lashes.
5) Pretty Amazing Lipcolor in Vivacious. This is a 
really nice lip color. It is a combination between dusted pink color. I really don't know how to describe it. lol. The good thing about this formula is that it is a lipstick/gloss. So the application is very creamy. 

Overall, both of these kits are amazing. They each come with different things so that makes it more useful. You can still buy these online at I believe they do not carry these anymore in the stores. 

Enjoy! And as always, please leave me your comments/feedback.
