What is your favorite skincare or beauty product that you have purchased on Amazon Prime?
I have been a Younique Presenter for almost 5 years, and sell a lot more casually than I used to as my priorities have changed. BUT this is one of the products I 100% stand by. I personally use the nude shades more than the bold ones, and these are 3 of my favorites.
I’m a fan of liquid lipsticks, but because they are matte they can often dry out my already parched lips. The reason I reach for this formula more than any other, is because it contains vitamins C & E so it doesn’t dehydrate my lips.
As you can see in my swatches, the texture is velvety and opaque. My top 3 nude shades are: Sublime, Sympathetic & Stellar but more have been added to the collection!

These are by far my favorite sunglasses! The perfect aviator that is both feminine & stylish. Comfortable & protective. They are lightweight and have the perfect gradient fade. I love this blue pair, but they also come in burgundy & yellow.
If you want some stylish new shades for the summer, I highly recommend TopFoxx 😎 You can even use my code FANCY15 to save some money!
This Pixi Beauty Glow Mud Mask contains ginseng, aloe vera & mineral rich mud to deep clean pores and energize skin, leaving a healthy glow. This mask claims to be for all skin types, but especially congested or dull skin. I always caution those with very dry or sensitive skin that mud masks may not be best for them, but I did not find this to be very drying like others I’ve tried in the past.
Apply a thin layer all over your face, avoiding the eye area. After 15 minutes, this dries down to a slate color and can be washed off. Use 2-3 times per week before bed. I like to follow this up with Glow Tonic Toner & remember to always mask on clean skin! ✨

I don't know about you, but if I am doing a little online shopping and there's an option to get free shipping when you spend a certain amount, I'm gonna make it happen! So when my mom asked for some new eyeshadow for Mother's Day, I turned to ColourPop. I really enjoy their easy to use Super Shock eyeshadow formula, and picked up a palette that coordinated. I was so close to that free shipping threshold, and I had really been wanting to add a few fun colors to my collection...so I purchased the Mar palette for myself.
I really liked that there was a mix of both neutral and bold colors, satins, metallics and mattes.
Sorbet makes for a beautiful warm orange-toned crease color and blended well for a matte.
The satins & metallics all blended easily and I sprayed my eyeshadow brush with rose water to pick up and intensify the blues. The only shade I found difficult to work with was the dark matte brown shade, Top Down. I found that packing the color made it a little less patchy looking but I ended up layering Detour over it anyway. I also appreciated having everything I needed in ONE palette. Transition/crease color, highlight, bold and neutral shades. I hate having to dip into multiple palettes, especially if I am doing a tutorial. I have seen mixed reviews on this palette, but for the price I think it’s a YES if you want something a little different and travel-friendly in your collection.
I decided to do something a little bold for my birthday look last week. Because who doesn't want to wear blue eyeshadow while doing everyday things like eating pizza and getting a pedicure. #extra
1️⃣Place cream shadow in the shade VICTORIOUS all over eye area to create a bare canvas and act as a primer.
2️⃣Use a fluffy blending brush to place the shade SORBET into the crease and up onto the browbone.
3️⃣Place the shade TOP DOWN into the outer corner. I packed the color on somewhat with a shader brush.
4️⃣In the middle of the lid, place GRIDLOCK vertically from lashline to crease.
5️⃣On the bare section closest to your nose, place the shade HWY and blend very slightly into the last shade to create a gradient effect.
6️⃣On the outer corner of the eye, place the shade DETOUR and blend slightly past where we placed top down.
7️⃣Place EL REY in the very inner corner of the eye. You can also place this under the arch of your brow.
8️⃣Using a small crease brush, place the shade WILD ONE on lower lash line starting at the outer corner and blending inward.
9️⃣Touch up SORBET in the crease if needed.
You could definitely create a cut crease to make this look more crisp, but that's just not a technique I tend to use. Here are the products I used for this look in case you want to check them out for yourself!

Do you know the new buzzword in the beauty industry? “Screen Face” - skin damage caused by our dependence on digital technology. Aside from contributing to gradual vision loss and sleep problems, blue light is also causing you to look a lot older than you actually are. The skin around your eyes is one of the thinnest and most sensitive areas of your body, and becomes the most damaged when exposed to blue light, resulting in: 👇🏼
I have been loving these Anti-Blue Light Glasses from Topfoxx: http://bit.ly/2O0FU7B
(So much, that I am wearing them as we speak.)
This Audrey in Tortoise style is already sold out and other styles are running low! Use code FANCY15 to save $$$ and your eyes while you can! http://bit.ly/2O0FU7B
TIP: You can also adjust the settings on your phone to reduce the blue light. Definitely set your phone to dim a few hours before you typically go to bed to prevent blue light-induced insomnia!
(I received these products complimentary for testing purposes.)
I have been testing out the Rouge Signature Matte Colored Lip Inks by L'Oréal Paris. The shades I have include: I Create, I Am Worth It, and I Rule. They have such a unique texture and formula compared to all of my other lip products! I did a video with my review and swatches if you are interested!

Pixi Beauty sent me this vanity set with a giant #GlowTonic right before Christmas & I have been using it ever since!
My skin can be a little sensitive at times, so I started by using it every other night to test the waters since this is a chemical exfoliant. I have found it to be gentle enough to use every day with no irritation.
If you are still using one of those apricot scrubs to exfoliate your skin, put it down! They can cause micro-tears in the skin which can invite bacteria to enter. If you are overwhelmed with AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) this is a great choice because it’s super gentle and alcohol free!
AHAs can penetrate the skin at a deeper level to address oiliness, acne, blackheads, fine lines & dullness. Pixi GlowTonic includes 5% glycolic acid as the active ingredient. It also includes aloe vera to soothe irritation and hydrate skin.
Ginseng is the unsung hero in this toner, because it can stimulate the metabolism of your skin (who knew?) This encourages the production of collagen, which is essentially the fountain of youth. Ginseng may also treat dark spots and undereye circles.
☀️Make sure you use SPF whenever you are actively using an AHA product.
💡If you are sensitive, try to introduce this toner into your routine gradually instead of am & pm daily as suggested on the bottle.

I picked this up at either TJ Maxx or Marshall's because the packaging caught my eye. This product is made in Korea, so nothing beyond the front of the package was in English. I could only assume that besides being a cleansing balm, it also included some brightening ingredients.
For my every day makeup removal, I tend to use a makeup wipe or micellar water; but when I have a full face this is what I use to remove it. I love how a balm melts away hard to remove makeup without having to rub or tug too hard at the delicate skin around my eyes. Although this does not irritate my skin, it does very slightly sting my eyes—I assume because it is not just a basic cleansing balm, but also a brightening product. It also leaves a little bit of a film on my eyes for a little bit, but I tend to use this immediately before bed.
I decided to do a little research & check out their website to see what additional information I could find. Lo and behold, that is also in Korean, short of a few random catch phrases like, “only the most abundant food contains vitamins!” It claims to “gently remove makeup and dead cells without irritation, while brightening your skin.” The active ingredients are Kakadu Plum Extract, Camu Camu Extract, and Acerola Extract. After a little googling, I discovered that these ingredients are very high in vitamin C. Besides it’s work as a brightening agent, Vitamin C also supports the production of collagen. By the looks of the photos on their website, this cleansing balm also includes: cactus, aloe, green tea, pearl, Snow lotus, witch hazel, and rumex crispus root.
I’m not sure if I would seek out this exact brand once I run out, but I will definitely be repurchasing a cleansing balm product in the future. 𝕎𝕙𝕚𝕔𝕙 𝕠𝕟𝕖 𝕚𝕤 𝕪𝕠𝕦𝕣 𝕗𝕒𝕧𝕖?
