A Drugstore find….

I've been really LOVING skincare and I'm now in-search of the Ulimate Skincare product. Something that takes cares of pores, removes any dullness and/or scars, brightens, smooths and that doesn't leave me looking like a grease ball….
So, the other day I was visiting my mom and she wanted me to pluck her eyebrows and as I was plucking away, I noticed that her skin was really soft and really glowy. I had to ask, and she told me "OLAY Total Effects 7 in ONE".
Olay has been around for years, and there's a reason for it. My grandma was a big fan of Olay, and I still remember how her skin smelled after she applied the moisturizer…so why wouldn't I give it a chance…So, the next day I found myself in Rite Aid in search mode.
I have to say, I noticed a difference in one use.
This product claims it's a "moisturizer with vitamins + antioxidants helps fights 7 signs of aging for visibly younger looking skin". Has Vitamin B3, C, Pro V B5, and Vitamin E.  Reduces fine lines, helps even out tone, reduce age spots, smoothes out skin texture, provides moisture, gives skin a healthy-looking radiance, and minimizes pores.
Basically it's meant to replace all of skincare products, because it does it all.
I have to say, I am impress already.
I have used this at night over my ESTEE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair and my La Roche-Posay Effaclar K. I know it has been only one night, but I do see a difference already and I'm loving how my face is feeling.
I will definitely give a second review on this bad boy within another couple of months…

Best SWAP, ever!!

I have had unbelievably the best of luck in swapping this past week, and I really have to thank the girls for giving me the opportunity to swap with them!! These are just items that I have really wanted for a while and just couldn't afford.
I understand, some people might feel weird about using someone else's used makeup, but it's cheaper than buying the product and chucking it to the side and forgetting about it. Besides, you have to set rules for yourself. I personally don't swap for mascara, that's where I draw the line, I always ask for pictures and a full description(amount, amount left)of the items before I finalize the swap.
The best thing about swapping, is that you get rid of all that extra makeup that's laying around(that has been forgotten or just too many back ups) and you exchange it for something you should have bought rather than impulsive buys.
....This is just a really quick run through of the stuff that I've received….

  • Chanel's Vitalumière Aqua BA30 - I'm such a foundation junkie. *Don't Judge*….I have about 10 bottles of foundation in rotation as of right now!! I have had my eye on this foundation FOREVER, but I just didn't want to dish out the money. Finally, the opportunity was given to me to swap and I couldn't resist! Mind you, I wasn't sure this was my shade and to my surprise it was the right shade!! I will definitely do an update on this bad boy…but as of now, I'm just loving it on my skin and the smell, it's so so sweet!!*inlove*
  • Sigma's F80 and F82 - Two brushes that have been praised all throughout Youtube. Well, one more than the other…F80 has been described as the "ultimate foundation brush" and I was lucky to get my hands on it!! Used it with 3 different foundations and it does live up to the hype!! The F82 is an angle F80 version. I wanted this brush for my Chanel cream bronzer and cream blushes and I'm loving it!!
  • MAC's 187 and 182 brush - MAC brushes have a huge reputation for being the best of the best, when it comes to brushes and I believe that! I do have a few of their brushes and they have stand the test of time…they only sad thing about them is that they cost a pretty penny. The 182 has been on my wish list, as well as the 187 for a while….and finally I was able to get them! As crazy as it may sound, I'm just really happy to just have them as part of my collection!!
Would love to hear great swap stories…please let me know below…
