Last month I was too busy to get a favourites post out, and I barely wore any makeup all month anyway. This month, I got back in the groove of things and have lots to share. From old loves to new discoveries, there are a lot of products that got me excited about makeup and skincare again.
From my Let's Talk: Honesty post back in mid-April, you may already know that press samples and sponsored posts can sometimes make me a little uncomfortable. As my blog continues to grow, I receive more opportunities to work with brands. While I have turned down all sponsored post offers so far since the first one which didn't feel right to me, I happily accept most press samples from brands that I feel suit my blog's style and demographics. Over the past month I have received many exciting shipments of products, and I find that sometimes I don't mention enough of what comes through the mail on the blog. I don't mean to brag about the brands I am very fortunate to have the opportunities to work with, and the great products I receive for consideration, but many of you love my haul posts, so I see this as more of a look into what's new to my collection.
Why buy many when you can buy one? As someone who keeps her makeup quite simple, I find myself reaching for the same few makeup application tools over and over again. As I was doing a clean of my collection, I found brushes I had either never used or rarely used collecting dust in my brush container. Noticing this, I also realized that it's because there are some tools that come into play for many different purposes over and over. They are quality tools that do more than promised.
