Colour Pop Ultra Glossy Lip in VIP (Ipsy) 
A few months ago I did a makeup trade on Bunz where I acquired a ColourPop liquid lipstick and I immediately noticed the quality of their product. At their affordable price, they hands down won me over as a client. My next Ipsy glam bag came with the exact same colour! How the hell? *puts tape over laptop camera* So I gave my mom that one and she fell in love as well and made me order 3 more of the same colour. I told her to hold her horses but she was adamant. My last glam bag came with another ColourPop lip product and it was the colour VIP in an ultra gloss. I don't typically like the feel of a sticky product on my lip but this one is not very tacky at all, it has a medium coverage and give a natural flush on my pigmented lips. If you have lighter lips, this would show as a nice berry hue. Extra points for being moisturizing.

The Chemistry Brand Pro Repair Skincare for Hands (still testing)
I've never really taken good care of my hands and I really should have... they take a good beating in my line of work (restaurant and mommy duties!). They're the first thing that ages and the part of you that is in contact with most people. When I came across this product, I knew I had to give it a try. They say it targets 8 signs of aging: Brightness, evenness, smoothness, density, firmness, texture, elasticity and hydration. Yes, yes, yes! They also say you can expect results in 11 days. I've only been using it for a few days so I will give an update once 2 weeks have passed but in the meantime, the cream is lightweight and silky in texture and has an amazing smell (although doesn't linger for long).

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 
I'm so intrigued with The Ordinary and I want to buy up everything they have! I love their packaging... little bottles with droppers... I feel like a scientist when going through my skincare routine. I was excited to try this product for it's skin brightening claims as I suffer from hyper pigmentation around my mouth. This is definitely stronger than anything I've ever tried before and while the packaging says to use this twice a day, I had some uncomfortable skin tightening when I did. So I only wear this at night. The formula is gel-like and tacky. I put a little dollop on my fingers and dab it into freshly cleansed skin. I've noticed is that my face is brighter, thanks to the nianinamide, as if the winter sun and wind hasn't done me wrong yet. The hyper pigmentation around my mouth is less dusky with better results on one side than the other so far. The results are better than anything else I've ever tried and maybe after a few more days of using the product, I will be able to use it in the AM too.

The circled side is where the hyper pigmentation is still a bit dark but so much better than a week before. The other side is so much clearer, something I have never accomplished before. The overall area is still a bit pigmented but I've only been using this about a week so far. I'm so excited to continue to see results!

  1. Great post! Does the Niacinamide work as an all-over-blemish-free result or just hyper-pigmentation?

    1. From what I've read, Niacinamide is effective in reducing blemishes. I've seen some results using this on my pores but it could be because I use Aztec Healing Clay as well (which is top!). But, 100% its working for discolourations!
