Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.

If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.

Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.

Ratings:

For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect!

Soap & Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash

This is the second product I’ve tried from Soap & Glory, and again I am totally impressed. The first product I tried was their Hand Food, and to put it mildly, it is the greatest hand lotion in all the land. You can read my complete thoughts on the review I posted previously here.

So with the sheer amazingness of the first product of theirs I tried, I figured I’d press my luck and try another (with fingers crossed).

I was in the market for a new face wash, and while wandering aimlessly through Ulta, I came across the Soap & Glory display. Now first, you must know that I am a total sucker for great packaging. Soap & Glory has that indeed, big cheers to whoever is in charge of that.

Based on how impressed I was by the Hand Food hand lotion, I did not hesitate to grab the Vitamin C Facial Wash off the shelf. I read the labels, glanced over the beautiful aqua blue gel with little pink dots within and proceeded to place it in to my bag of purchases.

When I got home I placed it my shower so it would be ready to go. Before diving right in, I remembered how concentrated their hand lotion was – a little goes a long way. So I squeezed about a pea sized amount in my hand and went to work.  Wow! Wow! Wow! Foamy, refreshing, and cleansing! Loooooooved it!

I have used it ever since. Now I will be the first to admit, I do not have acne prone skin. It is fairly normal most days, and can get a little dry here and there. For me this stuff is one of my favorite face washes to date. In fact, I am still working on my first bottle. This stuff lasts forever! So for a $12, 11.8 ounce bottle, your money will go far, and $12 is extremely inexpensive for the quality product that it is.

For those of you who need more convincing, it has a rating of 4.5/5 on Ulta’s website, based on 249 reviews.

Also here are the details from the description on the Ulta website if you are still contemplating πŸ˜‰

  • Face Soap And Clarity 3-in-1 Daily Vitamin C Facial Wash smoothes and purifies for super clean, fresh and bright skin.

With complexion-friendly, non-drying, easy-rinse ingredients including natural Superfruit Yuzu and Ultra-Soft Scrub-Beads, this high-tech foaming facial wash is a multi-tasking miracle.

β€’ Cleansing, foaming and smoothing.

β€’ Gently, polishes and purifies.

β€’ Energizes and brightens.

β€’ Strategically formulated for oily/combination skin.

In a nutshell, the Vitamin C Facial Wash from Soap & Glory is refreshing, effective, aromatically pleasing, and inexpensive. Try it for yourself! At $12, what do you have to lose?! My bet is that you’ll be just as impressed as me. πŸ™‚

Of course you can find this product online at the Soap & Glory website, Ulta, and Target.

Rimmel Provocalips – 16 Hour Lip Colour

Those of you who also follow me on Instagram @AllThingsAdoredOfficial know that I have been using the Rimmel London Provocalips quite religiously as of late. 

These are definitely one of my current favorites. 

The application is smooth, the colors are fantastic, and as advertised it lasts foreverrrrr!

Provocalips comes in 14 gorgeous shades and is available at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.

The Ulta website describes the product as follows: 

Rimmel’s Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour is an exclusive 2 step product that locks in vibrant color for 16 hours. It’s so incredibly lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips. These seductively rich shades bring out that femme fatale in you! Wow color, incredible shine and zero trace!

I can totally agree with the lightweight and flexiblity claims, and the color lasts and lasts through eating, drinking, kissing, etc. Nachos, it even lasted through eating nachos!! 

At no point while wearing this product did my lips feel dried out (like some long lasting lip colors can do), or get clumpy. The color remained smooth and my lips remained moisturized.

The cost is approximately $6-7 depending on where you shop, and is a super great price for the quality of product you are getting.

Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚ If you have a long-wearing lip color you think is also amazing, let me know in the comments below!

    DIY False Eyelash Cleaning


    The bane of my existence… cleaning my eyelashes! But I have discovered a new method that makes this whole process less tedious.

    What you’ll need:

    • Your used false lashes 
    • Rubbing alcohol (I use 70%)
    • A small dish or bowl 
    • Original eyelash tray that your lashes came in

    The process:

    • First place your lashes into a small bowl/dish.
    • Next, pour rubbing alcohol into the bowl/dish until your lashes are completely submerged.
    • Leave them soaking for a few moments.
    • Next, gently remove mascara and glue with your fingers.
    • Once clean, place the eyelashes back in their original tray to maintain their shape.
    • That’s it!

    Happy cleaning!! πŸ™‚
