I’m not going to beat around the bush here. Benefit’s brow game has drastically improved. The formulations are better, there are way more shades to choose from, and the magic wand-inspired packaging? Super gorgeous!

What a difference, guys! Follow me on Snapchat (@beautyandsparkl) for more makeup scoops!

I recently tried Ka-Brow! and if you want an Instagram brow, get that! The cream-gel formula is perfect for creating definition and using a brush allows you to control the gradation of color a lot better. The color was too dark for me though (I got #4), so I really use these three more. Continue reading

Get Lippie Tuesday

Over the past week, I noticed that my lips were painfully dry. As in, there were times when I had to stop halfway through a smile or laugh, because I’d feel my lips start to crack. Ouch!

That's why I thought we should talk lip care for this Get Lippie Tuesday! Check out this new innovative product from Laneige (and the cute flamingo, hehe).

That’s why I thought we should talk about lip care for this Get Lippie Tuesday with the Lineage Lip Sleeping Mask, P960. Yay for innovative Korean beauty finds!

Who knew you that masks for your lips are a thing now? I tend to suffer from dry lips (especially when I don’t drink enough water), so I was pretty excited to try this and see if it works. You just apply it before bed and you’re supposed to wake up to a softer, smoother pout. Another bonus: It also softens any flakes, so you can easily buff them off the next day.

It contains different types of antioxidant-rich berries (raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, blueberry, gojiberry, soapberry, cloudberry and coffee berry) and vitamin C to soothe dry and chapped lips.

As you can imagine, it smells deliciously fruity and you’re gonna get tempted to keep licking your lips (don’t—it’ll dry ’em out more). I like that the berries were extracted through super-high pressure to preserve their antioxidant properties.

The texture is thicker than your regular balm, so you only need a teensy dab. It actually comes with a silicone spatula, but I lost it! I've been using a cottonbud instead since I hate double-dipping.

The lip mask soothes your pout immediately, but what I noticed most was that I woke up to (what felt like) plumper lips. I think it’s because it also contains a hyaluronic acid mineral network. This forms a moisturizing film to help the skin absorb and retain your lip hydration through the night.

Of course, this Korean brand also came up with something that’ll make your skin glow the very next day. If you’re a night owl and tend to stay up late, you’ll definitely want to check this out since it makes your skin look like you slept for 8 hours! Continue reading
