Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm 3

If you’re unfamiliar with BB Creams I do suggest reading this post prior to reading my review of the new Stila Stay All Day 10 in 1 HD Beauty Balm. Hopefully it’ll enlighten you to what a BB Cream is.

With Summer here, we’ll be seeing more and more BB Creams popping up but these products aren’t new by any means as they have been popular in Korea for a very long time and just over the last year or two Japan and the rest of Asia.

BB Creams are a cool product in the fact they offer flawless, long wearing coverage with the added benefit of anti-aging, whitening, and SPF ingredients to keep skin looking its very best. There are SO many brands of BB Creams in Korea in a variety of formulas to try but lucky enough we are a bit more limited here in the US. I say lucky because sometimes it does get overwhelming and finding just the right BB Cream for your skin tone and issues comes down to trying many products before finally finding just the right one for your tone, skin type, and issues. Believe me, I’ve tried hundreds!

Not many Western brands have succeeded in capturing the idea, concept, and formula of an Asian BB Cream but the attempts and tries so far are interesting.

Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm will essentially be a disappointment if you’ve tried Asian BB Creams before however it might just prove a win for those who haven’t been initiated into the world of Asian BB Creams.

Let’s take a look!

Benefit Sun Beam Review & Swatches

Benefit Sun Beam 3

Just for the record I am a misguided, lonely soul when it comes to highlighter application. I’m not sure if its ok to admit that I own a ton of highlighting products but don’t technically know how to apply them correctly.

Oh the horror!

The woe!

I did give Benefit Sun Beam a try out last week though just so see how much I’ve evolved in my highlighter application.

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipgloss 1

My friends think I’m absolutely mad with my taste in music. Hardcore metalcore, 80’s, show tunes, k-pop, j-pop, I jump around all crazy-like with my taste in music.  Needless to say they really don’t love sitting in my car with me and having my playlist on shuffle, because baby, that shiz is random.

And of course, fitting for this review, my love for Neil Diamond.

Speaking of jeans….

You NEED to add Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipgloss to your stash for Spring.

It’s the perfect MLBB (my lips but so much better) lipgloss.

Sephora Head To Toe Hydrator Review & Swatches

Sephora Head To Toe Hydrator 1

Imma tell you, I just recently (maybe the past five years or so) got my sister to stop using body cream on her face. Seriously. Really. Honest truth.

I won’t tell you her age but she looks blooming incredible you’d probably never guess how old she was. Maybe that body cream was working…!

Obviously she and Sephora know something I don’t because they both highly suggest body cream for your face.

Mmhmmm…true story.

Jump!
