First of all I ADORE the feminine girlish bag. This last year and winter has been hard on a lot of people, so the idea of a butterfly is really a nice symbol for this particular coming season. The rose gold metallic detailing makes it special.
The first up today is this herbal Lip Balm from Hempz. I didn’t care for this too much. I really don’t understand the appeal of hemp. To me, it’s a part of stoner culture, which you are either into or you are not. I am not.
Next came the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm: Finally a NYX product I love! I’ve been pretty cold towards NYX, but I love this creamy lipstick. It smells amazing, and I love the color
Next, comes Nomad Cosmetics Illuminating Highlighter in Midnight Sun I love that this is named after a month long sun in Sweden. I felt that went well with the theme this month. The packaging is adorable.
Theorie Hair Care Detoxifying Hair Mask was the next product. Charcoal products are a trend nowadays. Toothpaste and those nose strips and face masks. This is the first I’ve seen it in a hair product. I wasn’t a fan. Since charcoal is what they use to pump a stomach after poisoning, I can’t help but feel it’s a little weird to use it in beauty products. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong, but it’s not for me.
Finally, I received a Concealer Buffer Brush from Vasanti. The bristles are 100% synthetic, and cruelty-free, and very soft which is good enough for me!
