My @influenster x Laura Mercier box came in today! Super excited to be trying out the new Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation! And super grateful for the extra loose setting powder that came with it! I love this powder so I'm glad to have a backup 😚
.
Stay tuned for a review and swatches! I have my foundation in the shade 3W1 Dusk (medium with neutral undertones).

I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from @@influenster ☺

I've been trying out this cream at night from @0.8l_usa recently and I have a few thoughts.
.
.
The Few Thoughts
.
.
πŸ’­ a little thick but spreads thin across the skin. But better to not use a lot.
πŸ’­ smells medicinal
πŸ’­ really great at moisturizing. For my combo/oily skin feels a little too thick for the summer but will be great during the fall/winter.
.
.
The Atopalm Real Barrier Intense Moisture Cream contains a 3-Calming Complex (Panthenol, Madecassoside, and Allantoin) to soothe and protect the skin. I haven't been using it long enough to see any of the protecting stuff but if it helps, I did have a pimple that healed fairly quickly.
.
.
Overall, I like this cream but it's going in my drawer until the colder months come. The weather doesn't permit thick feeling creams. I think this would be great if you have dry skin since it's thick but if you have oily/combo skin like me, just use a little bit so your face isn't so moisturized.

@lazyglow #lazyglowgiveaway check out this giveaway!!

Not entirely sure of my thoughts on this toner since I didn't have that much time to play around with it.
.
.
Points I can talk about so far:
πŸ‘ scent is okay. I'm not the biggest fan of lavender but it's not overpowering
πŸ‘ does its job as a toner. I don't typically use toners in my routine since the facial cleansers I use are low pH but this doesn't hurt and it removes any dirt/makeup that's leftover from my face.
.
.
That's pretty much it. It does contango witch hazel but I can't speak on the effects of that. It claims to whiten and be anti-wrinkle, but again, I haven't had time to play with this.
.
.
So far, I do like this so stay tuned for an updated review!

Got my giveaway mask prize from @seoulmamas yesterday and tried it out last night!
.
.
I really liked the fit of the mask and omg the mask was super juicy! It stayed on for a good 30 mins πŸ‘ the essence didn't absorb that much into my skin so I skipped my typically emulsion and went to bed.
.
This morning my face was pretty good - not oily, not too dry, and it felt really smooth. I like this mask and would definitely purchase more in the future :)
.
.
Thanks @seoulmamas and Betsy for sending it my way 😊

Last night's skincare team! I've been trying out the HL Gokujyun Foaming Cleanser to see what all the hullabaloo was all about. I think I like it. Another thing I'm trying out is the Naruko Miracle Seed Essence. I also think I like this one. MUCH more watery than my trusty Goodal Waterest First Essence.
.
.
.
Of course I forget to picture my Cosrx BHA Liquid - which I luuuuuv. I have to say, that product has kept pimples off my face for a good year. Also, A LOT of trial and error. I've learned which ingredients go well with my skin and which cause cystic acne for me. So, with that being said. Read ingredients lists! Don't just chuck a product because it broke you out. It's time consuming, but pinpoint what ingredient might be doing you in and I'm sure your skin will love you for it (and you'll love your skin!).

Quick Thoughts πŸ’­
.
.
A bit too yellow and a touch top dark. My best match is MUFE HD Foundation in Y365, so I'll have to mix with this my L'OrΓ©al Pro-Matte foundation in 104 Golden Beige (great match for me in the winter) to get my right shade.

Y'all, it's been 6 whole months since my last empties post and this is all I have to show for it πŸ˜…
.
.
A ton of masks, "couple" of samples, and a "sprinkling" of full size items.
.
.
Shout out to these goodies that helped out during my final semester! Side note: I'm officially a graduate! Grad school is in the future but right now, can I nap?

I was able to try out these Saint Blanche Tiger Sheet Masks courtesy of @0.8l_usa πŸ€—
.
.
First impressions:
.
.
I haven't sheet masked in a long time, so this is the first I've tried in a while and omg. I really like this. The ingredients aren't listed in English so, I wasn't able to tell what was in it but whatever is in it, I'm all for it!
.
I wore the mask (unfortunately, not tiger themed like on the package) for ~20 mins and had good enough left over to spread all over the rest of my body.
.
.
Claims:
βœ” improves the balance and hydration and oil production - yes! I wore this in the morning as part of my morning routine before the rest of my stuff. I didn't feel greasy throughout the day, as I sometimes do with other masks. I did get a little shiny in the forehead but das okay with me.
βœ” ultimate dewy, brightening, and glowing skin - YES. The glow was so, so, real.
πŸ€” damaged skin and fine lines and wrinkles - not sure where they're going with this, but after a first time try, I wouldn't think it would work that fast. But over time, maybe.
βœ” calming and soothing effect - yes. The sheet mask is cellulose and sticks really well onto the skin. And the fit was perfect! There was a lot of essence but who wants a mask that skips out on the essence?
πŸ€” skin's firmness and elasticity - again, for something that takes time, I'm not actively on the look out in a product that I just used. So, with due time (gonna need more sheet masks), this claim will have to be tested on more.
.
.
Overall, do I love this? YES. .
.
Q: where can I get this and do they sell this in bulk? πŸ˜‚
