Believe me when I say I wanted this post up a week ago and I’m highly disappointed that it wasn’t. I normally tend to have a new post up every Wednesday and I was hoping all of my stuff was gonna be here by then but no. I settled for posting this on Friday (03/31/17) with the hopes my packages would come in on time but the last few items didn’t come in the mail until that same Friday later in the day. Of course at that point I just decided to wait and upload it on my normal posting day on the upcoming Wednesday (and unfortunately life keeps getting in the way so now it’s posted on Friday ugh). I did happen to post a picture on instagram though and say my posts would be pushed back a week, but regardless sorry for posting so darn late. I’m honestly so upset by it.
I have been very much excited for this blog post though and I wanted to do a little extra with it. I wasn’t able to do everything I wanted for it but maybe I will with a blog post in the future. Moving on to the fun part!

Olay Moisturizer. This is a repurchase for me and I really like it. I find that a gel consistency is more beneficial for my oily skin – plus it feels amazing and hydrating on the skin. I also love the smell. Comment some good recommendations – could use more gel moisturizers!
Elcie Primer. Basically I needed a new primer. This one is oil-free (which is highly needed), hydrating, water-based, and lightweight. Steadily becoming my favorite primer.
Cover FX Foundation. Not gonna lie, I saw this in Jaclyn Hill’s first impression video a little while back and I bought it as soon as the video ended. It looked flawless on her. For me, I really enjoy the coverage – I’d recommend it.
Collection Concealer. I actually didn’t buy this but I wanted to mention it. I’m obsessed with London and the UK – even though I’ve never been. And where can you find this concealer in stores? In the United Kingdom. The most lovely lady, Denise, was SO kind enough to buy and send it to me after I had already proposed to buy it myself. I will forever be grateful for it.
Too Faced Blush. The most beautiful blush I’ve ever had and it smells like peaches – I love peaches. If you don’t have this, please try it out for yourself. Gives a perfect color to the cheeks and it’s perfect for spring/summer.
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick. Limited edition lipstick to match the iconic “pillowtalk” lip liner and it’s another gorgeous nude that I added to my collection.
Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. Her new velvet formula is actually really comfortable on the lips and also pretty longer-wearing as well. Charm is my favorite – I’ve worn it maybe 2-4 times now on different outings. I’ve tried on Harmony once and it didn’t appeal to me right away so I took it off. However, I will test it out again to give it a fair shot!
Bloom Planner and Stickers. I love being organized and long story short, I’m in love with these planners. I know a lot of people are familiar with the “Happy Planners” but I swear I love these more. The designs are amazing and the stickers are the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Stay tuned for a review and special surprise coming soon!
Gel Pens. My handwriting tends to be very different when I write with a pen compared to a pencil. Needless to say, the pencil always looks 20x better. I wanted gel pens hoping the consistency might be better – as of right now, it’s okay. Gel pen ink is hard to deal with because in the middle of writing the ink stops showing up. Super aggravating – I already bought a different set of writing utensils to make up for it LOL!
Zoella Compact. I really wanted a new mirror compact and this was like killing two birds with one stone. It has a little pocket on the other side to hold your ID, license, etc. The mirror itself is a really nice size as well! BIG essential.
Zoella Hand Cream. Another essential that has quickly become a favorite. Your hands will thank you in the long run – perfect for those more drying days outside.
Zoella Beauty Bag. It’s adorable for one and I just really wanted something else to pop into my handbag. I use this to carry my lanolips and hand cream! Perfect size!
Luxie Brush. I use this for setting my face with powder and it’s amazing. It picks up the right amount of powder and it’s not too big nor too small. You could even throw it in your makeup bag if you wanted for touch-ups on the go!
Lanolips. Last but certainly not least, especially because it’s another favorite! You can use it for extremely dry lips, skin patches, cuticles, and more. I personally like it because I get these weird little patches, I guess you could say, around each side of my nose from sinuses and this is SO helpful! Try it out!
