Honey Girl Organics Review & Skincare Routine

Happy weekend, loves! In hot summer days, your skin might be soaking up more sun than usual. It may also mean more oil production and clogged pores. I've been keeping my skin soothed, balanced and moisturized over the past summer month with three of my new favorite products from Honey Girl Organics! The Facial Scrub, Rejuvenating Mask, & Night Cream have been the products I reach for once a week on my Sunday spa nights.

The Honey Girl Organics Facial Scrub is my new holy grail scrub. I've never found a facial scrub that leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturized after I wash it off. This scrub makes my skin feel like I could walk out of the shower and not even have to apply moisturizer! The icing on the cake? It smells like a lemonade popsicle! 🍋🍋🍋 IMG_0318.jpgMy next fave product is such a relaxing step in my skincare routine. The Honey Girl Organic Rejuvenating Mask is made with raw honey, French green clay, & Hawaiian Blue Algae. I like to slather this on my skin the night before a Monday 😉 Sleep, oh how I covet thee with my Honey Girl Organics Night Cream. This cream is rich and thick in texture, so a little goes a long way. Its essential oils and herbal, aromatherapeutic scent help me to drift away to neverneverland. When I wake, my skin feels calm and hydrated thanks to this gorgeous night cream. Loveee that there are only a select few ingredients in Honey Girl Organics' entire organic & cruelty-free skincare line. Quality ingredients over quantity, baby!IMG_0335.jpg

Hope you enjoyed my review of the latest products I've been enjoying from Honey Girl Organics. If you have tried them, I would love to hear how they are working for you! Mahalo!!! ~Kelle 🌊💖☀️🌺

Anastasia Cream Contour Palette Review & Contouring Tips!

Greetings!  Version 2In my latest video, I review Anastasia’s Contour Cream Kit and also give you some of my cream contouring tips.  When using cream contour products, I prefer using deep cream contour shades.  Even on fair skin tones like mine, I think deep shades can provide the most natural looking contour when sheered out onto the skin.  There are 4 contour palettes in the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit line, and in this video I review the “Deep” palette. It comes with six shades.  The top row of shades is fantastic for mixing into the darker shades in the bottom row, to achieve the perfect natural bronze shade for any eye/cheek look.  It took me three washes with soap and water to remove the swatches.img_9314 This is great news. Many powder bronzes just wipe right off.  Even without having to set the shades with a powder, the longevity of these Anastasia cream contour shades is remarkable: with over 8 hours of wear without budging!  This palette is also fantastic if you have dry skin like I do, because powders can just cause more dryness.  My favorite way to apply the shades is with my Elf stipple brush, and then blending over that with a synthetic BH Cosmetics face brush. Overall, I think what makes the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit such an outstanding palette is that the shades don’t look super creamy/sheen-y when applied, as you can see in the swatches.  They look like super pigmented bronzers with the blendability of a cream. Suitable for all skin tones too!  I haven’t found cream contour shades that provide this natural of a contour in a while!   Happy Sunday! XO ~KelleIMG_9245.jpgIMG_9253.jpgimg_9266-2

Self-Tanning Dupe | Bare Minerals vs. L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Mousse

Happy Friday, lovelies! It has been feeling a lot like summer in LA this week! That said, it is also time for some sunless tanning! I’ve recently discovered a dupe for Bare Minerals Faux Tan Face glow! Faux face has been my quick, go-to face tanning shade lately.  I feel like when I wear it, it is enough of a sun kissed look and makes for less makeup to wear.  I have recently discovered that the Bare Mineral’s faux face shade is nearly identical to one of my favorite drugstore self-tanners: L’oreal Sublime Bronze Mousse! Faux Tan Face sells for $26, while L’Oreal’s is in the $7 price range.  It i difficult to notice any difference between the two shades!

In this photo:  Bare Mineral’s Faux Tan Face is worn on my face, & L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze is worn on my neck & décolletage.  Sublime Bronze is an exact dupe!

For work and especially in warmer weather, I go through a lottttttt of self-tanners!  Nothing really beats a professional spray tan, but sometimes I only have time for diy method.  My faux glow is almost out, so I will probably just use the L’Oreal mousse on my face and body for my upcoming photo shoot. Shooooop-aaaaa-dupe!!!  Hope you enjoy the video and please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel & give this video a thumbs up :))))) Thanks so much for watching & have a beautiful, sunshiney weekend, my loves!

Mega LUST Lipsticks!

I’ve been a huge fan of the “Bare it all” shade in Wet N’ Wild’s Megalast Lipstick line for a while now.  It t is my adoration for this nostalgic brand that persuaded me to pick up the rest of the entire mega LUST collection :)))

I more or less wanted to try the shades, many of which I had never before worn.  After 26 lipstick changes, I can say that I love all of the shades and plan on wearing them all somewhere, some way, some how!  🙂  A few of my fave shades from the collection are Vamp It Up, Carrot Gold, Pink Suga, & Sugar Plum Fairy.  I’m super into marsala shades for Fall at the moment, and there are several variations of it within this line! Yay!  With quite the vibrant rainbow array, why not be a megalast mixologist and come up with your own unique shade!? Quality matte and creamy lipsticks At $1.99 per lipstick that last (for hours!) just cannot be beat!  If you watched my latest YouTube video, thanks so much for watching!!  If you have not yet visited my channel, checking it out and subscribing to me would be such a blessing!  Thanks so much!!! Have a great week, my lovelies! XO ~Kelle
