lilah b. first registered on my radar a year or so ago on Instagram. I saw a photo of one of the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek duos and thought that it was gorgeous. The brand came up more and more as I looked into cruelty free and clean beauty. I kept coming back to it and revisiting the products on the Sephora website. I finally took the plunge a month or so ago and ordered one of the Lip & Cheek duos for my own. The shade b. True, a gorgeous mauve, was my pick. Let’s dive in to my lilah b. review!
Sunday Riley Good Genes
It’s very dry where I live. Think of a desert with snow. As I’ve aged I’ve found that my skin is less able to cope with the climate than it was when I was younger. It’s still oily but now, for the first time in my life, I am having to deal with the occasional dry patch, some redness, and a general tight feeling in my skin. Unpleasant. I got this generous sample size of Sunday Riley Good Genes All-I-One Lactic Acid Treatment in a Sephora Favourites box of goodies I bought last winter. I finally got around to using it in February and within a few weeks my skin was looking the best it had in a long time. Colour me impressed.
You may have heard me mention that fact that I have oily skin the odd time, or three. It’s true. It’s a constant battle to keep my makeup from disappearing and it gets worse in the warm months. Over the years I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks to make my look last longer in the heat and today I’m sharing my top five summer makeup tips for summer 2019!
Fenty Gloss Bomb
I find myself reaching for lip gloss more and more as I age, especially in the cold months. My lips are much drier than ever before and lipstick is just not a good look for me most days. Read on for my Fenty Beauty review!
My most recent Sephora order included the new Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in the shade Fenty Glow which is described as a shimmering rose nude. The claim is that the gloss delivers shine and all three shades – Fenty Glow, Diamond Milk, and FU$$Y – flatter all skin tones. Fenty Glow certainly works with my pale complexion and I think it would be gorgeous on deeper skin tones as well. Read more
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush review
My ride or die makeup products are mascara, blush, and some kind of lippy. I was just telling Mr. P&P the other night that those are my favourites and the ones I slap on if I only have seconds to spare. He was fascinated, I’m sure. Just in case you think it’s cruel of me to bore the pants off him like that, I had just sat through a half hour long retelling of the latest episode of Shameless he’d watched. Today’s post is a review of my favourite Hourglass blushes.
