This month's theme is travel and the bag is a yellow with red mail stamp all over it. I think it's very cute! Like! 👍

What I got:

Trèstique - Mini Matte Blur Stick
I was most excited about this item from this month's bag! I love a good blurring primer and this one really does blur the lines on the back of my hand. It says you can also wear it over your makeup to instantly reduce shine and it won't mess with your makeup. How cool is that? Love!

First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum
I love First Aid Beauty and I am happy to get this serum to try out! I already love their Ultra Repair Cream which is super moisturizing and can heal patchy dry spots. I love a good hydrating serum and always try to use one under my moisturizer. It's a clear gel which absorbs into the skin very quickly!

Veneffect Skin Care - Micro-Exfoliant
This is my first time hearing this brand. I use exfoliant all the time in both physical and chemical form. I like that this one contains grapeseed, soy, pomegranate, and willow bark, so it adds some beneficial properties on top of the scrubbing!

Slimissglam - Beauty Sponge
I use a beauty sponger everyday to blend my foundation and concealer. I mostly use the Beauty Blender. This will be my first time trying Slmissglam sponge. It seems to be a bit firmer than the Beauty Blender but it has the bell shape with a flat edge. I will see how this performs!

Pureheals - Centella Green Tea Mask
Another new brand to me. I do face mask everyday and love trying out new ones. This one contains green tea (detox) and vitamin C (brighten) - yes to both! It says you can also use it as a targeted spot treatment for blemishes and dark spots. Interesting. I will be using this tonight!

Blue Leopard Print


I always say I love doing animal print nails because they are very easy to make and yet can be quite impressive! This time I chose blue as my leopard pattern theme.

I used a cream white and silver polish besides the blue.

On the white nails, I dabbed some light blue polish straight from the brush in the bottle.

I then outlined the light blue patches with the darker blue polish using a detailing brush to complete the leopard look, and that was it!

Polishes used:
Blue and White - Julep
Light Blue - Spa Ritual
Silver - Mineral Fusion
