Best of 2017 – 17 Skincare Discoveries!

Leslie here!

If you haven’t been keeping up – I am slightly obsessed with skincare ’round here. And while I lie to myself and try to think that I’ll be better and not buy so much new skincare to try (because honestly wtf you literally don’t need anymore), I tried so many great, new things this year!

Looking around at my current ‘routine’, if you can call it that, I am realizing so many things I am using on a daily basis were discovered in 2017. Whether they were released this year, or just new to me this year – I wanted to share with you guys! So keep reading if you want to see my top 17 skincare discoveries of 2017!

Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer – better than Shape Tape?!

Leslie here – happy belated new year! New year, new concealer? Maybe it’ll be new year = more blog posts. Maybe? Maybe.

Today, I’m bringing you my thoughts on the fairly new addition to Urban Decay’s All Nighter collection – is this a concealer that tops Tarte Shape Tape?? Some are saying they love it even MORE – so I had to get my hands on it to see for myself. Let’s get into it!

Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Cushion Foundation

Helllooooooo! Leslie here with another #foundationfriday! This was one a real struggle to get through – I was off most of the week celebrating with my HusBo, and then started playing Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild on the Switch again – which is all I could think about. But luckily I have had this one in the chamber for a while πŸ˜‰

This week I want to tell you alllll about the cushion foundation from Philosophy. One ‘mature’ (50+) YouTuber I watch says it is one of her faves, but other than that I haven’t really heard any chatter about it! Cushion foundations are very popular among the k-beauty world, and because k-beauty is making its way into our lil’ American hearts, everything seems to be cushion these days! Let’s get into it!

Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation #foundationfriday

Yaaas-lie here! This week for Foundation Friday I am going go over my thoughts on the new(ish) Blur Liquid from Milk Makeup. Milk is one of those super trendy brands with the super artistically simple packaging and millennials are losing their g-d minds over it.

I’ve only tried a few things from Milk (see my thoughts on the Blur Stick here), but when ThaTaylaa RAVED about this one, I had to give it a try! So let’s. get. in. to. it. Continue reading

Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

Leslie here!! I hope your week is going just PEACHY. It’s time again for another #FoundationFriday, and this week I am going to get all up in that Peaches and Cream!

I have been really failing on my ‘no-buy’, and Too Faced’s Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation was first on my list to try! As a lover of the Sweet Peach palette, I was actually not very excited about a lot of the Peaches and Cream Collection. Maybe I’m too old to appreciate the cutesy packaging. But packaging aside, I have seen rave reviews on this particular piece of the line! So let’s see if it is peach PERFECT!

Leslie here!! I am so excited to …announce? Yeah sure- let’s announce!!

I will be starting a Foundation Friday series, where a foundation review will be posted on the blog every Friday!
