Masking - Last 50 Days Of My #100DaysofSheetMasks

Way back on August 1, I started a #100Daysofsheetmasks challenge with a fellow blogger, Jayne from Cosmetic Proof and the challenge went all the way to November 8. Basically, we wear a mask every day for 100 days straight! I shared my reviews and thoughts of my First 50 days on another post - you can check it out here if you are interested

While I found the first 50 days really fun, I did actually think the second 50 days was quite hard to get to - it almost made masking feel a little like a chore to me (sadly), so I actually haven't used a sheet mask since I finished the 100 days! But, I certainly plan on starting again in moderation! And, this challenge was good and my skin certainly benefited from it, I think I'd do a month timeline as a max for the next round!

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 Mini Lip Set - Swatches, Try-ons and Reviews!

Charlotte Tilbury is a brand that feels really luxurious to me - it's a bit of a splurge for their products, but everything I've tried has been really good! So whenever I see a high-end brand come out with affordable minis, I feel compelled to try them (I don't mind a good splurge, but when I can, I will save some money when I try products!)

Charlotte Tilbury released this Hot Lips 2 line of lipsticks earlier this year - it was a line of 11 shades inspired by "strong icons, rule-breakers, record-makers, and history-shakers." I had been eyeing up trying the J.K. Magic shade because it is named after J.K. Rowling and I mean Harry Potter was pretty influential in my life, but I shied away because $43.00 a lipstick is a little steep for me!

It's been over a year since I've tried Boxycharm and I was suckered back in by a few upcoming spoilers, including the palette in this box! Boxycharm has changed their subscriptions like crazy - last year they started with one variant or two but prior to that, every subscriber got the same box. Now the include the base box, Boxycharm Premium which is basically higher end products for more $ each month, and then BoxyLuxe every 3 months for even more!
