Review: ColourPop NKLA x Laura Lee Los Angeles Collection

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share ColourPop's new Laura Lee x NKLA collection! This is the 3rd year that ColourPop has come out with a limited edition item in collab with No Kill LA & Best Friends Animal Society. 100% of the net proceeds are donated to this effort to stop euthanasia in animal shelters. You can see my review of their first shadow for this cause called Puppy Love HERE. Last year they came out with a shadow called Cat Nip. Both shadows as well as this collection are available right now on ColourPop's site! Each year I purchase for this cause since it is so near and dear to my heart. As soon as I found out they were doing it again this year, I knew I was going to get it regardless of what it looked like. I had mixed feelings about this collection. Keep reading to hear my thoughts, see swatches, and see a look that I created.

All of the items in the collection can be purchased on their own or as a bundle. I purchased both the lip bundle and the shadow quad bundle. The super shock shadows are $5.00 each and the lip products are $6.00 each.

Review: Pinkie Swear Clip Paints

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on a new beauty brand, Pinkie Swear Cosmetics! Prior to going to Gen Beauty NYC I had never heard of this brand. At Julia Salvia's Gen Beauty dinner I had the pleasure of meeting the Pinkie Swear team and learning about the brand. Their first beauty products are called Clip Paints. We recieved a gift bag at Julia's dinner and these Clip Paints were included! Keep reading to hear more about Pinkie Swear and their Clip Paints!
Pinkie Swear Clip Paints
Here is a little info about Pinkie Swear taken directly off their site:
"Pinkie Swear is makeup collective for dreamers, magic makers, and misfits. Our products are based on style, not skin tones, so you can pick colors based on what’s real, not what’s “right.”
Pinkie Swear Clip Paints
Created by a team of working LA artists, and totally made in the USA, Pinkie Swear vows that just like our favorite art supplies, our colors are high quality and high impact, and ready to turn your makeup into a masterpiece. Join us for beauty that’s as cool as you are. We swear."

Review: Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water & Radiance Toner

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on some Derma E products. While I was at Gen Beauty NYC I went over to the Derma E booth and introduced myself since I had worked with them in the past. I got to meet one of the PR reps for the brand and she was super sweet. She gifted me with an influencer goody bag which contained the two products that I will be discussing in this post. For those of you unfamiliar with Derma E, All of their products are natural, cruelty free, and 100% vegan. Derma E is now found at Target, Ulta, Whole Foods, and on their website.  I first discovered Derma E back when I was subscribed to Ipsy. I recieved a jar of the Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub in one one my bags and to this day its one of my favorites. I reviewed a bunch of their other products which you can check out HERE. Keep reading to hear about their Vitamin C Micellar Water and Radiance Toner!
Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water & Radiance Toner

Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water & Radiance Toner
Here is what is said about this product on the Derma E site:
"This refreshing Vitamin C cleansing water dissolves long-lasting makeup and impurities, while improving the appearance of skin’s texture and promoting healthy collagen. Micellar technology gently lifts off dirt without rinsing, while maintaining skin’s proper balance. Anti-aging Probiotics and antioxidant-rich Rooibos help skin to appear brighter and replenished.
We use a stable form of Vitamin C that won’t evaporate or alter before absorbing into your skin, to work better for you, naturally."
Ingredients:
Purified Water, Propanediol (Vegetable Derived), Sorbitan Oleate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer (Plant Derived), Polysorbate 20, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C, Stay-C® 50), Phytic Acid, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Vegetable Derived), Polymnia Sonchifolia (Yac√≥n) Root Juice, Maltodextrin, Lactobacillus (Probiotic), Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Natural Fragrance Oils.

Previous to this, I have never tried any Micellar Waters before. I was really excited to give this a try. I have been using both this Micellar Water and the Radiance Toner for about 3-4 weeks. For the most part, I have been using them together both AM and PM. However, once or twice a week I switch things up and use other products. When It comes to the Micellar Water, I think its great as an added product to cleanse your face. I wouldn't use this in place of a makeup remover but instead use it AFTER washing off your making and cleansing your face. It will get any extra dirt or makeup that a cleanser or makeup remover has missed. It has a very subtle citrus scent and feels nice on the face. I do feel that my face feels refreshed after using it and I love that it contains anti aging probiotics and antioxidants. I love using this in the AM when I wake up. Because I shower at night, I remove all my makeup, cleanse my face, and do a whole skincare routine before bed. When I wake up in the AM my face isn't DIRTY. Therefore, I just splash some water on my face and use the Micellar Water as a refresher. I also think its great to use after working out.
