If you're an Origins fan or if you've been wanting to try a product from Origins, now is your opportunity! Starting now until June 19 you can take $20 off a $45 or more purchase online with promo code TWENTY. Note that this promo code does not apply to gift items or items that are already on sale. I am unsure whether or not this coupon is valid in-store. I found the coupon on the website.  I also tested it out and it works. Shipping is free for orders that are $30+ after coupon otherwise it will be $5. :)

REVIEW/SWATCHES: Topshop Beauty Mono Eye Shadows

I recently purchased three Topshop Eyeshadows through the Topshop website for $2 each on sale. Unfortunately these shadows are no longer available on their website, so I won't go into too much details about them.You can however purchase the shade Spaceport for $12. Price discrepancies? I don't know, but I feel as if Topshop shadow are randomly stocked and priced online. Holograph and Hallucination are available on the UK Topshop website.

These shadows are very pretty! From left to right the shadows are named: Hallucination, Pyramid and Holograph.

Hallucination is a lavender/silver duo chrome.

Pyramid is a gold shimmer.

Holograph is a white/silver/icy blue trio chrome.

I'm not the type of person to wear shades like Hallucination and Holograph, but sometimes it's just fun to experiment! These shadows are gorgeous, but the issue that I have with them is that you have to really pack them on the lids in order for them to show since the formula for these are thin. They're powdery, so eye shadow primer is a must, but for $2 each I cannot complain. These are probably best applied wet. I normally put on foundation first in my makeup routine, however I am unable to do that with these shadows since there is a lot of fall out. Again, I think I got a great steal for $2, but I would not pick these up for $12 (retail price). I would rather spend $12 and get two Makeup Geek or MAC eye shadows instead. Hopefully these will go back in stock (for $2)!

I am wearing Holograph on the lids and in the creases. I am also wearing Tarte's Tartelette in Bloom Eye Shadow palette in Jetsetter and Rebel in the creases and Leader in the outer Vs.

Beauty Haul!

I have a collective haul to share with you today! This is probably one of my favorite hauls probably because of the Foreo and highlighters! There's a bunch of highlighters that I bought, and I cannot wait to glow this summer! Please let me know if you would like to see a review on any of the products I have mentioned. I have been using my Foreo for several days now, and I am planning on reviewing it after giving it at least one month. I also thought about comparing the Foreo to a manual brush from Memebox that I purchased a while back. :) Any who, enjoy the video!

REVIEW & DEMO: Banila Co. Clean It Zero

Hello everyone! It is almost the end of the week! Yay! Today I have a review on one of my favorite skincare products by a Korean brand, Banila Co. This is a very popular cleansing balm known as Clean It Zero, and there are several other versions of this by Banila Co., but the one I am reviewing is the original.

This is a sherbet cleanser that takes off your makeup with ease including waterproof eyeliner and lipstick stains. No joke. All you have to do is scoop a tiny bit of the sherbet into your palms, rub it together until it melts, massage your face with it, and wash it off with lukewarm water. It is such a great cleanser that I highly recommend. I used to use the Boots cleansing balm from Target, but I stopped because it left my face oily. However, this Banila Co. one surprisingly leaves my face hydrated and non-oily. 

You can see my demo down below. I'm not too fond of wearing waterproof makeup, but I did wear a  waterproof liquid eyeliner and a liquid lipstick.

I purchased mine for $16 on the US Memebox website. Now, $16 can be a lot for a cleansing balm, but truly, a little bit goes a long way! :)

P.S. I told my sister about this product, so she purchased it and now loves it too! :)
