Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

It's been a hot minute since anything new from Revlon jumped into my routine, but Influenster has changed that with their most recent campaign. If you haven't noticed already, the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara is in the hands of most bloggers because of it. I'm not one to turn my nose up at a new mascara (you never know when your next HG product may pop up) so I've been testing it out. Is it worth a trip to the drugstore though? Read on to find out...

How is the week over? I have no idea where this week went... I certainly didn't get to much of my blog schedule and will have to have a word with myself. Before that though, we've got this interesting little kit from Hard Candy. The Look Pro! Metal Eyes Chrome Eyeshadow Kit is a budget friendly way to bring a bit of metallic to any look.

The Golden Hour | L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere Eau de Parfum

I am always game to try a new scent, especially when said scent has a gourmand element. I get a case of the gimme gimmes when it comes to something a little sweet. The thing is, there aren't always many summery scents that feature true gourmand elements... That is, until now. L'Occitane has introduced their first gourmand offering in the cute little Terre de Lumiere. Spoiler: it's good!

Choosing Charcoal | Charcoal Infused Skincare

choosing charcoal (7)::: press sample / I bought it / affiliate links :::

When the year began (aka New Years), my friends and I were chatting upcoming trends. Of course beauty eventually came up, and I theorized an upturn in activated charcoal products. Was I right? Kind of. A handful of mainstream brands have gone to the dark side, but it seems most prevalent an ingredient with smaller names. That said, it's certainly not hard to find charcoal infused products. From the pure activated charcoal to soap, masks, and even deodorant, the purifying black powder can be found in almost anything you're looking for.

Loosely Based | Translucent Powder Roundup

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

When I first started blogging, it seemed translucent powder wasn't a fan favourite. A lot of readers and beauty fans I spoke with favoured a powder with a bit of added coverage. Personally, I've always been more for lighter bases and found translucent was my more my jam. Plus, it bodes better with drier skin. Cake face need not apply. That said, with baking now a widespread 'thing' translucent is all the rage and more specifically loose versions. The question is, what makes a translucent loose powder great and do you need to shell-out for a higher-end formula?
