Product Review: Updated Generation G Lipstick

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve had a crazy weekend between work, going to the state fair, and trying to catch up on a bunch of schoolwork and ambassador stuff. BUT I’m here and ready to start the week! When Glossier announced the 2 new Gen G colors, I was obviously stoked. I ordered both Zip and Leo along with restocking my Boy Brow stash and my Priming Moisturizer (Never can have enough of it!). I’ve actually ordered from all 3 batches of Gen G (You thought there were only 2??) and I wanted to point out some of the differences between the 3.

The first color I bought was Jam, just to see if I enjoyed the formula since I’m not much of a matte girl. The color payoff was nice, but I noted that the actual lipstick had gotten caught between the cap and the tube and was smudged onto it. It was pretty noticeable considering it was see through. I wrote back in my initial post that I felt that compared to all of their other products, the Gen G tube felt cheap and plastic-y.

A few months later, when the colors restocked, I purchased Cake, Like, and Crush. The tube was a little less see through and felt firmer, but it still wasn’t the best it could’ve been. That’s why I was really glad to see the opaque tubes that make a definite “click” sound when the cap is closed. Now that’s improvement!

Cake was a disappointingly peachy nude which was another reason I was happy to try Leo! Personally, I don’t think the formula changed much from the original, but I didn’t have a problem with it before, so that’s okay! Would I call Leo my perfect nude? No. However, it actually shows up on my lips and is very flattering for my skin tone which is more than I could say for Cake. It’s a very pretty fall color as well, so this will go into regular rotation very soon!

As for Zip, I liked it, but it wasn’t my favorite. I love bold red lipstick, and I like to reapply to keep it as opaque as possible. Zip just made me feel like I had eaten a sandwich right after putting on one of my other reds. Not patchy, but just not pigmented enough. I guess that’s a personal opinion seeing “sheer” is in the description, but I think reds should always be loud and proud!

I’m really proud to see how Glossier has progressed over the last year, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. Want your own Gen G Lipsticks? Don’t wait! These babies will sell out quick so get yours today!

Shopping Alert: New Generation G Shades

Good morning everyone! To those of you lucky enough to be enjoying a three day weekend, congrats! Here’s something you can do while you lay in bed and Netflix binge. Glossier just released its matte lipstick, Generation G, in 2 new shades: Leo and Zip. I’m excited for both of these! Leo looks like a true brown/nude as opposed to Cake which disappointingly doesn’t show up on my lips even after 4 or 5 swipes. Zip is going to be red! Crush already comes off as a nice brownish red for me so I’m excited to see what their true red looks like. If you buy them both you get free shipping! These babies are probably going to sell out like the first four did so scoop yours up now!

Happy Shopping!

My Everyday Makeup Look

Even though I really enjoy the artistry behind makeup, on a day to day basis, I really don’t wear a lot. I want my makeup to be functional, look natural, and make me feel great! I want to wear the makeup and not have the makeup wear me. That’s why I love brands like Glossier who really embody those ideals. This post is a short look at my “natural” makeup look is sponsored by Glossier, though all opinions are my own. Let’s get started!

My everyday look has to be quick and easy so that if I’m rushing out of the door to school, or only have a few minutes in between classes, I can have it done ASAP. So on a normal day, I’m using 5 or less products!

real Techniques Powder Brush

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara 0.3 Oz

bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation with Click, Lock, Go Sifter – Golden Dark

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color, Blushing Harmony, 0.18 Fluid Ounce

Stretch Concealer

Boy Brow
Sometimes the two that get cut out are the foundation and concealer because I really don’t wear them unless I really want to look put together. Luckily, I take care of my skin to a degree where I don’t need to wear it every day anyway! I do love the glow foundation and concealer give, however. It’s a great pick me up when your skin is feeling a little dull! Also, when picking an everyday lip color, make it the truest nude that you can find. Now, I have two toned lips (the bottom is pink and the top a dark brown), so it’s hard to find a lip color that matches both. L’Oreal’s Color Rich in Blushing Harmony is a good middle ground, but since it has a glossy finish, I always dab off the excess.

Makeup should be fun and effortless on all but the most glamorous of days (unless you rock it 24/7 to which I give you props) so make the most of it and find what’s right for you. Of course, the best way to have great makeup is to give it a good base by cleansing your face every day and taking good care of your skin. You all know I subscribe to the Glossier method, so you can find their full product list here.

I hope you all enjoyed my natural look post, and I will see you next week!

Happy FunDay!

Product Review: Glossier’s Super Serums

Happy Monday everyone! No, this isn’t a rip-off of Captain America, but rather a product review for Glossier’s Super Serums that were launched a few weeks ago. Normally I play around with skincare/beauty stuff for about a week before I write my reviews, but I wanted to give these a little bit longer to try since they each have specific uses. I ordered the Super Pack which includes all three serums for $65.

I’ve never used serums alone before. I do have some experience with the serums and essences that my sheet masks come soaked in, and I do enjoy rubbing the excess into my skin afterwards, so I figured this would be a similar sort of experience. The packaging is the best that Glossier has done so far! Each serum is packaged in a small glass bottle with a dropper and pale pink top! It looks and feels very luxurious which I find is great for the price point.

The instructions say to apply in between facial washing and moisturising, and while you can apply with the other two, you’re only supposed to use each one ONCE per day. For each serum, I’ve applied two drops on each cheek and two on my forehead and it covers my face, so a little bit goes a long way. I’ve been breaking out a lot recently, so I’ve been using Super Pure the most out of the three.  After two weeks, I don’t see much of an improvement in my skin, and I seem to have broken out even more.

I’ve been breaking out a lot recently, so I’ve been using Super Pure the most out of the three.  After two weeks, I don’t see much of an improvement in my skin, and I seem to have broken out even more. I haven’t been wearing any makeup the last week in order to give my skin time to breath, so I’m not sure what the problem is, and I’ve discontinued use to see if it goes away soon.

Super Glow is my current favorite! It’s vitamin C infused which is supposed to give your face a healthy glow when it’s looking a little dull. This one totally works for me! It has the most watery consistency of the three so I only apply one drop per cheek and one of the forehead. It definitely makes my skin look more glowy and less tired. I do have a time making sure it doesn’t roll off my face while I’m trying to pat it in, so I suggest tilting the head back for this one.

Super Bounce has been very helpful too! I’ve been fighting a cold for the last several days and I’ve had a Netflix date with my bed and Grey’s Anatomy. I just kinda felt like a stale piece of bread. Super Bounce restores elasticity to my skin and helps it feel very soft and smooth which is great for makeup application! Super Bounce is the thickest of the serums so I alternate between 1 or 2 drops on each cheek and only one on the forehead.

Although I’ll be taking a break from these to see if my breakout subsides, I really did enjoy using these serums! I highly recommend purchasing them in the pack because you save a full $19 by doing so. However, you can buy just one at $28 to try it out!

Also, apparently there was a glitch in the Glossier referral link system. Normally, referrals are supposed to cap off at 50 people (or $500), but it allowed me to refer about 300 people (or $3000) this year. They’ve fixed it, but I just wanted to give you a heads up that my 20% off link does still work! I just won’t start earning credit again until next year. That may mean fewer giveaways for now (sad face, I know), but thanks to you guys, I was able to donate $700 of that credit I earned to Rachel’s Ray of Hope, a local charity in my town. I hope to continue to donate in the future which means you have to keep using the link!

Product Review: Covergirl Clean Matte Products

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had great weekends! About 2 weeks ago I had the epic pleasure of receiving my first VoxBox from Influenster! This box included a full sized BB Cream and Pressed Powder from Covergirl’s upcoming Clean Matte line along with one of their Colorlicious Oh Sugar! tinted balms to round out the look. I received my COVERGIRL Clean products complimentary from Influenster. Although I got these products for free, all opinions are my own. Let’s get started!

First up was the heavy hitter of the box, the Clean Matte BB Cream. Normally I like to go for more dewy, natural looking makeup products so I really haven’t tried much in the way of matte products. I ordered my box in the darkest shade, 560 Deep, which was a pretty good match. My only color complaint is that the yellow undertones are very prominent in this formula, making me a tad bit lighter than I am in reality. The cream was very easy to spread (I used a basic sponge to apply) and I think it blends well. Just be careful to blend all the way around the chin and neck because if it isn’t blended completely, it will leave a noticeable line. I was impressed with how quickly it turned from liquid to matte, and I don’t think it compromised my personal look any. However, for those who wear glasses (i.e. ME) be careful not to apply much product where your glasses sit on the bridge of your nose. It will return to liquid after application and start sliding and smudging and overall being gross. This was without the use of a setting spray, so I can’t determine yet if it would be better with one.

Look Ma, No Filter!

I really liked the Clean Matte Pressed Powder! I felt like I could wear the powder alone with a decent amount of coverage and it’s also very matte, but not drying! Also, the powder didn’t have that tendency of melting like the cream did, which may just be because of the formulas. The compact that the powder is in does include a mirror which is always a plus, but I always seem to have trouble getting it to click shut which results in it flipping open at inopportune moments. I don’t like that when the compact is open it can’t hold itself up and instead falls open. Not very helpful when my hands are full. It does include a puff applicator, but no finger strap, so I would replace it ASAP.

Lastly, the Colorlicious Oh Sugar Balm was meh at best. It had melted out of the tube when I first opened the box, but I was able to put it back in. I received the shade Candy, and the color payoff is pretty great, but it smells like straight sugar with a little bit of vanilla flavoring. And after my Butter London Lippy Lipstick smelled like the world’s greatest bakery, this just can’t compete.

I had a great time reviewing these products and I can’t wait to try out more products through Influenster! I enjoy trying new products, so if there is something you’d really like me to try out, let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to get it done!

Have a great week!
