Review | Scentbird

I had to share my current favorite as it was sent to me by Scentbird. I think this subscription is truly amazing and innovative.

What is Scentbird?

From their website...

Scentbird is about the fun and magic of fragrance. We designed Scentbird for the pickiest girl- or boy- to let you date luxury perfumes before marrying them.

Get access to a 30-day supply of hundreds of top designer fragrances, including Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs delivered to your door for just $14.95/month.

I just really like that for a fraction of the cost of a full bottle, you get to try a perfume or you get your favorite perfumes for 30 days at a time. I really think this is great as it saves you from buying perfumes that may cost $75 and up. You will probably end up purchasing your favorite but this is way better than little samples that you can barely get a drop of perfume from.

I love the sleek packaging and you just twist the bottle and the spritzer portion appears. This is great to just throw in your purse and go.

I wanted to add a picture of me holding the bottle so you could see the size, it is not a large bottle but a perfect size.
I have ordered my first bottle in Chloe, Love Story. It is not my favorite scent but I am excited to try another! I also like that you answer questions regarding scents and where you would wear the perfume. Scentbird basically populates a recommendation list for you of the scents you would enjoy.

What do you think about this subscription or have you tried it already?

Dr. Brandt: Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask

This post is long overdue but I wanted to share a new favorite from Sephora, Dr. Brandt's 3-D Filler Mask.

The mask actually stays on your face as a treatment and you do not wash it off. I really like this concept because unlike others where you wear for a certain period of time and wash it off, this stays on your face and continues to improve the appearance of your skin throughout the day. I also like that several masks are coming with a brush now, makes it more sanitary and easier to apply.

So, you take the brush and you apply in a 'triangle' movement, starting at your chin and then you can apply it where you see fine lines/wrinkles, etc. You apply it after cleansing your face and before moisturizer or primer since you want the layer of treatment applied directly to your skin.

The product quickly absorbs into the skin and you can fill it tightening your skin, it is not uncomfortable though. I applied my moisturizer after and I really like the appearance of my skin.

I can honestly say that this is not a product that is full of hype but it actually works to revolumize, reshape and fill where you need it.

It works well for fine lines and mature skin, it is a great product that I think you should try out if you are interested. I have received compliments on my skin with and without makeup when I apply this as my base. I have been really wowed with their products and they are staples for my skincare and makeup routine.

If you are interested, here is my review on the exfoliator and the primer which I use religiously.

Review: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

Happy New Year, everyone! 

I purchased the Too Faced Born This Way foundation when I received a gift card from Sephora due to my VIB status. I have wanted to try it but have always used more drug store foundations. First, I really love the packaging and I love that it comes with a pump!

The pump controls the perfect amount to be dispensed to cover your entire face. The foundation comes in 18 different shades which is awesome because you're guaranteed to find your perfect shade without having to combine another shade to match your skin.

It feels really hydrating and adds medium to full coverage. Although, it provides really good coverage, you can still see your skin peeking through for a natural look. 

Here is a little blurb from the the Sephora site:

The revolutionary formula is infused with a potent combination of coconut water to naturally replenish moisture levels; nature’s resilient alpine rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity; and hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance. 

I really agree with this because I really love how it leaves my skin and I have been using it for about one month and I feel like it has approved the appearance of my skin without makeup.
Here is a swatch to help show the consistency:

I have the foundation in Warm Nude
As mentioned, it is pretty light weight but packs a punch in the coverage department. I apply mine with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I like the luminous, demi-matte finish, you can set it with a powder but I do not. It also has good lasting power as it keeps up with my work day.

Overall, I think you should give it a try if this has been something you are interested in. It is a tad pricey, so I would only recommend it if I truly liked it. It is also cruelty and gluten free!

Here is a photo of me wearing the foundation:
