[Review] April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF50+ PA+++

I can't believe it's the middle of August already! I disappeared for a moment due to job searching (still no job), but glad to be back again. Today I'll be talking about my go-to cushion for everyday, the April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink ($19.29) in the color "Green" courtesy of BB Cosmetic. I've been obsessed with watching color correcting makeup on YouTube lately, so I was excited to try out this particular cushion. This is a "tone corrector" meant to be used alongside your regular foundation/bb cream, but I typically use it by itself.

[Review] Choonee Water Lip Tint Balm

For the past week, I've been trying out the Choonee Water Lip Tint Balms in Grapefruit, Cherry, and Peach sent to me by BB Cosmetic. In other words, the colors are orange, red, and pink. My lips have been ridiculously chapped and dry lately due to all the matte lipsticks I've been obsessed with, so I've been gravitating towards lip balms more often lately to give my lips a break and let them heal.

Matcha Doin': 3 Simple Ways to Incorporate Matcha in Your Life

If you personally knew me over a year ago, then you would have seen how obsessed I was with drinking brewed tea and making my own matcha latte at home. For a good while, I would wake up early before getting ready for work to heat up some milk in a pan and whisk it together with matcha powder using a traditional bowl and bamboo whisk. And then, I eventually got lazy. I recently stumbled upon my large bag of matcha powder and thought, "why let it go to waste?" Thus, here I am talking to you all about 3 really simple ways to incorporate matcha in your life with common ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen.

[Review] Holika Holika After Sheet Mask - Sauna

Time to review mask #3 of 4, the Holika Holika After Sheet Mask - Sauna, courtesy of Beauteque's Mask Marketplace launch. I won't be reviewing the last mask on here though. I feel like 5 posts on masks is overkill. More info on that later. 

I had originally purchased this mask because I occasionally visit my gym's sauna, and thought it would interesting to test it out. But the weather has been so hot here in Texas, just getting in my car after it's been sitting outside for 8 hours feels like a sauna already. There actually may be something wrong with my car's A/C (getting it checked/fixed tomorrow), so I end up sweating...a lot. Which means it'll be a great time to test this out before I get the air fixed!

[Review] Berrisom Oops Soda Bubble Mask - PoreTox Fruit

It's time for mask #2 of 4, courtesy of Beauteque's Mask Marketplace launch. Today's mask is the Berrisom Oops Sode Bubble Mask-PoreTox Fruit ($3.00). I find individual masks tend to be a little more expensive when there's something "special" about them, i.e. bubbles, animal prints, etc. If you happen to have read my previous post, then you know how disappointed I was about the last mask. Hopefully, this has different results.

[Review] Tsaio Witch Hazel Oil Control Mask Sheet

The Tsaio Witch Hazel Oil Control Mask Sheet is the first out of four masks I'll be reviewing from Beauteque.com as part of their new Mask Marketplace launch. One of the main reasons why I chose this mask was because witch hazel is known to help with acne, blemishes, and oily skin (just to name a few). And guess what, I have problems with all three of those things! Yay me.
