Looxi Beauty Summer 2017 Shimmer Shadow Collection

Looxi Beauty recently launched the second part of their summer 2017 collection and it’s full shimmer goodness. I had the chance to play in some of the shadows pre-launch and this collection is everything I was hoping for from Looxi this summer.

Does POPWHITE Brighten Those Pearly Not-So-Whites?

Back in March, POPWHITE kindly reached out and asked me to test out their whitening toothpaste and mouthwash. I was totally down to try it out since the products claim to brighten using color science, not peroxide. I’ve had mixed experiences with peroxide in past – usually all ending in my gums being on fire. Beauty is not worth that much pain!

I don’t consider myself to have sensitive gums or teeth. I brush twice a day (most days). I floss and use mouthwash at least once a day. I go to the dentist faithfully twice a year. I don’t have any fillings and I have never had any major dental work.

I thought I might be a pretty good use case!

My only hesitation was my past experience with harsh teeth whitening chemicals. But POPWHITE promised to be different.

Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in ‘Molten Gold’

I’m a huge fan of highlighters and the more golden goddess-y / bling all in your face / see me from Mars, the better! Usually reserved for indie or luxury beauty brands, it’s rare to see a quality highlighter from a drugstore brand, save for NYX Cosmetics or Makeup Revolution (which you still can’t usually find at your corner drugstore). So when Maybelline dropped their first Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter, you know I had to have it.

I ordered their first shade ‘Molten Gold’ via Amazon and it got to me in two days. With an already low retail price of $8 and my free prime shipping, I’d say that was a pretty darn good deal. I wasn’t really sure what to expect with the formula since this product is brand new to the Maybelline line. When I first swatched it, I wasn’t blown away by the powdery feel. It reminded me of how the Ofra ‘You Dew You’ and ‘You Glow Girl’ highlighters are, but the product didn’t glide on as smoothly when I took my finger to my arm for a swatch. Aside from that fact, it blended beautifully and definitely lived up to the ‘Master Chrome’ name!
