Glossier Monochromes Eyeshadow Trio- shade Almond

The packaging is meant to be refillable! I like how the shadow is buildable. This is perfect for taking on a weekend getaway because just pack this baby palette and you are set. I went into the Glossier Seattle store to see the colors in person. Almond was by far my favorite. Next time I will proabably have to pick up the shade: Prarie which has really pretty olive green tones I like how this comes with a matte, shimmer and satin shade. They look pretty alone or all together. My favorite combo is a Laura Mercier Caviar stick and then applying the Shimmer shade on top. Perfect for everyday!

Pat McGrath Labs Mini Smokey Eye Duo

This would make a really cute holiday gift set since the sequins are fun and can also be repurposed for holiday crafting (you think I'm kidding- my 6 year old made a masterpiece with these!)

The mascara is my favorite of the two products in this set! It lasted all day and didn't smudge so obviously that is a win! I also enjoyed the brush-- it made application easy. The black shade was rich and exactly what I would want and also expect from Pat McGrath.

This set its $25 and the sequins add an element of fun so I have no choice but to share that this really does SPARK JOY. There is also a mini lip set which I've purchased and can say that its a winner. The shades are beautiful and the heart shaped packaging makes my heart sing.

Common Heir 10% Vitamin C Serum

This is completely plastic free and the capsules are biodegradable and vegan. I like how this is pre-portioned which makes it easy to know if i'm using the proper amount of vitamin C and--- these are super easy to pack! Like a vitamin for your face- apply one a day! The serum is rich and oil based. It takes a little longer to absorb so don't freak out if your skin feels a little "greasy" after application. give it a few minutes. Overall, I love what this brand is doing. I am going to use up this 2 month supply and report back :)

This is a new brand and this is their first product. It's getting rave reviews and winning awards so this is one I'm ready to dig into. It's also a BIPOC femaled founded brand.
