Isn’t it great? My nana bought it for me for my birthday and I can’t believe how well it keeps my oily face in check.
But you have to try the veil primer! My face feels like silk every time I put it on. Oh and actually, Sephora is offerring it as one of their “pick 3” samples right now, so if you have anything else to order, definitely grab that. You won’t regret it!
unimpressed2chainz asked: omg i'm buying mascara for the first time and i was torn between the they're real and a tarte mascara, but you do like the benefit mascara?
Go for They’re Real! I really liked the sample I used and will probably buy the full-sized one after my Clinque runs out. I also think that’s the mascara most of my co-workers prefer (and they try a lot of different mascaras).
tweenw0lf asked: hey! have you tried asian products like japanese or korean ones? i'm curious on hearing your thoughts about them ^^
Not too many, unfortunately! But what I have tried, I do like. For example, I love Skin 79’s BB creams (I currently use the oriental gold one) for their great coverage and extra light colors for pale ladies like me. Korean and other Asian BB creams tend to be better than American ones anyhow, which usually are just overpriced tinted moisturizers. I also looooove Shiseido’s cleansers and have been saving up to buy my own (used some at a friend’s house once or twice). I’ve also heard amazing things about their SPF products and am looking to buy this one soon.
I’d love to hear any recommendations though if you have them!
Really nice! I still think I prefer Clinique’s high impact, but this was a nice change. Zero clumps and great for length.
So, we were supposed to go to the GoogaMooga festival today, but the weather is awful and it was cancelled. No big loss though – I didn’t want to trek it down to Prospect Park when it’s so wet anyhow.
On a different note, I’m getting better at the “no makeup” makeup look and it turned out so well today! (Hence the need to take a pic.) If you’re curious, here are the products I used:
- COOLA SPF 30 cucumber moisturizer (sample from work)
- Hourglass veil mineral primer
- Skin 79 oriental gold BB cream
- Cargo water resistant blush in Ibiza (sample from work)
- Benefit watt’s up highlighter (Sephora bday sample)
- Elf eyebrow kit in light
- Benefit they’re real mascara (Sephora bday sample)
- Fresh sugar rosé lip treatment
These are seriously all my favorite products right now (especially the blush – such a nice color!). The only one I’d add on is Urban Decay all-nighter makeup spray. Highly, highly recommended.

Having one of those “oh god what do I want to do with my life/what am I even good at” existential moments.
"The millennials are the people who’ve inherited the hangover from the baby boomers’ party: a warming planet, a dysfunctional global financial system that rewards the rich and screws the poor, a polarized political class that’s moved so far to the right that a centrist like Barack Obama can be described with a straight face as “a socialist.” Millennials may be “narcissistic, materialistic and addicted to technology,” as Stein alleges early in his article; they’re also drowning in college debt, slaves to an internship “system” that demands ever-increasing work for no pay, and entrants into a job market that’s replaced employment rights with the “flexibility” of never being able to afford health insurance."
Obsessed with this triple braided updo tutorial my coworkers did. I’m definitely doing my hair like this for the weddings I’m going to this summer.
