New Origins BB cream

Hey gals!

So I went to Origins a couple weeks ago and I came out with their new BB cream from their Perfect world line. So BB stands for Beauty Balm. This basically primes, evens out the skin tone, has Spf in it, is tinted, so it is like an all-in-one product. If you want heavier coverage this is not for you. But, if you would like a flawless, dewy finish then you will love this product. My skin looks amazingly smooth, and blemish less. I have been combing it with a bit of the Origins Vitzing, so I do not let that product go to waste. The effects are still the same though. This product retails for $35. It is a little bit pricey, but I think that it is totally worth it. It is similar to Vitazing, but I feel that this has more coverage to offer, and the dewy effect is more pronounced. The smell is amazing, and their is this cool effect on my skin when I put it on! I feel like I do not need anything else on my face after applying this on. I would definitely repurchase this product instead of a heavy foundation any day.  Be sure to check it out!

Buxom lipgloss in Dolly and ZuZu luxe eyeliner

Hey gals!
So for the delay again! Two products I wanted to talk to you about today is the Buxom lipgloss in Dolly and the ZuZu luxe eyeliner. The lipgloss can be exclusively found at Sephora and the eyeliner at Whole Foods or online. The brand Buxom is a spinoff of Bare Escentuals. This lipgloss retails for $18. I love this shade and basically the entire line. The smell is like cake and once you put it on it gives a little bit of a tingly feeling, but nothing that is uncomfortable. It is has a little peppermint oil or something in it and makes your lips look a little fuller. It is a little sticky but it is not overwhelming. I think that this lipgloss is worth the money and I would repurchase anytime and not just this shade, but the other shades as well. 

Now for the eyeliner! I love black liquid liner and since I was not able to find the brand Lavera anywhere I found the ZuZu luxe eyeliner at my local Whole Foods. It is vegan and comes from a cosmetics company called Gabriele Cosmetics. I love, love this eyeliner! It is very matte and pigmented and comes in a little bottle. The brush is stiff and like a pen. This color definitely makes my brown eyes pop just like the Bare Minerals liner shadows do but I feel like this has a better staying power with out using liner sealers and things. I will continue to repurchase this eyeliner for sure! The price of this is about $15 and I think it is worth the money!
 Hope you enjoy!
