I stopped at the @glossier showroom the other day to finally smell their new perfume. At first I wasn’t a fan but when I went back and smelled the little placard later in the day I liked it? Is it possible for the scent to dramatically change that much after drying down or am I going crazy? I don’t know! What do you think of the perfume? _____ Also I started reading through everyone’s responses on the giveaway post from yesterday and it’s making me so hungry 🐷 If you haven’t entered yet, it’s the post just before this one 🤗

Freezing my ass off and getting into the Christmas spirit— worth it or nah?
'Tis the season for berry lips! Sometimes I wear these alone and sometimes I layer them with each other 💋 💄 @diormakeup Dior addict lip tattoo in 771 berry: Wowza this did not disappoint! I love how the color blends in with the natural color of my lips. It gives me that just ate a bowl of raspberries in the freezing cold look that I totally dig. As it's a lip tint, it lasts really well and fades naturally. No patchiness here. For the most part, it's comfortable but if your lips are peeling + you're outdoors in the cold, this won't hide that. I'm not sure how it compares to the @yslbeauty glossy stain cause mine is currently mia... P.s this is currently 15% off at @nordstrom as is a lot of their beauty section 💄 @oneover.one scarlet bloom lip oil (PR gift via @octolyus): The first time I squeezed this out of the tube I was like 😨 It looked very glittery which I don't like for a lip product. But when I spread it out on my lips, all was well because the glitter sheers itself out! It honestly just looks like glossy and feels hydrating. The consistency is thin but not sticky, at all. It's probably the unstickiest glossy lip product I own. That said, it does transfer easily, especially if you over apply. I don't mind cause I would rather have something comfortable over something that's drying but transfer-proof
Happy hump day, Instagram! There's a new blog post up reviewing two holiday skincare kits from @firstaidbeauty and @palermobody (both PR gifts) _____ The polish featured in this cover shot is from the @palermobody kit and is by @sundays_studio. Isn't it the most perfect shade of baby pink? It has an almost opaque, jelly like finish that I instantly fell in love with 😍
I got a ton of questions on these adorable lipstick matches (PR gift from @redearth_beauty) that I shared on my story this weekend, but unfortunately I haven't tried them yet 🙈 I still have to take about 50 more photos of them before I take them apart and actually use them 🙃 ____ Side note 100% shot & edited this photo on my phone 📱 Was tempted to smooth the background out on my computer but I let it be and told myself it adds character to the shot. Cheers to not being as much of a control freak about my Instagram in 2018!
My routines have been all about them hydrating layers lately. I don't wear all these at the same time but I probably could because no matter how many layers I slather on, I still wake up with a matte face in the morning 😅 ⭐ @leegeehaam_global grow hyal b5 toner (PR gift): The latest addition to my collection 🙃 This is quite thick for a toner, although not as thick as the @whamisaskincare deep rich toner. Personally, I prefer slightly thicker formulas because I find them easier to apply as they don't run down my wrists. @glowrecipe calls it a watery gel consistency which I think is a spot on description. Some star ingredients include niacinamide, japonica root extract, and centella asiatica extract. ⭐ @joshrosebrook hydrating accelerator (@thedetoxmarket PR gift) ⭐ @drjart ceramidin liquid serum ⭐ @hyggee_korea balance essence (@beautibi PR gift) ⭐ @belifusa true tincture essence (@altheakorea PR gift) ⭐ @huxley_us brightly ever after essence ⭐ @leegeehaam_global propolis ampoule ⭐ @leegeehaam_global hyal b5 ampoule (PR gift) ⭐ @indie_lee coq-10 toner (@dermstore PR gift): I've already gone through two minis of this and I'm quickly working my way through this bottle. It also has a slightly thicker consistency, is incredibly hydrating, and smells sweet like the papa recipe sheet masks 🐝 ___ Photo taken with my phone ✌️
More is more is more! ____ I stopped at @openingceremony last week to check out the @deciem pop-up. Pretty pointless cause I have forbidden myself from buying any more skincare in 2017 but I was in the area so I couldn't resist. They had alllll the ordinary foundations as well as a ton of their serums. Tbh I've lost track of all the ordinary releases, there are too many! _____ I've heard also all sorts of rumors about their NYC store opening but they seem to conflict so I don't really know when the first shop is opening/ where it will be (I've heard both downtown and midtown) 🧐
My last beauty gift guide haul or not post is live! I'll be sharing a candle post later this week but the post will be in a different format 🙃 ____ Is anyone else stressing out over how fast the holiday season is going by? I know it's only the 4th of December but I swear it feels like Thanksgiving was this last Thursday. WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE? 😭
