RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

The RMS Beauty Living Luminizer is a much hyped product and at $38 (0.17oz/4.82g) it’s quite a pricey one too. It’s supposedly the product that gives models that much sought after, ethereal, dewy glow. Being a girl with ultra dry skin that looks matte and dull most days, I had to give it a try.

I purchased mine from blush.com. I tend to buy most of my non-drugstore, mid- to high-end makeup from them because I like their free shipping, no minimum policy and they ship pretty quickly. No shilling. I’m not affiliated with them in any way, just pleased with my shopping experiences with them over the past few years.

LeSportsac Ryan Baby Bag

LeSportsac Ryan Baby Bag in Mirage Poof

No Sephora Employee Appreciation haul for me this year. My younger sister recently announced her pregnancy so rather than getting something for myself I decided to get her a present.

I don’t have any kids myself and I don’t have plans to have any…ever. All I can say is some people are cat or kid people. I’m not; I’m strictly a dog person. Except for my sister, I don’t know any pregnant women or women with kids (my sis and I are both in our early-mid 30s in case you’re wondering). I’ve also never attended a baby shower so I really have no idea what an appropriate gift is but I thought it made sense to get her something really useful like a diaper bag.

Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewing System #HelloKeurig

Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewing System

All right, so it’s been a little over a month since I received the Keurig 2.0 for review via Influenster and I’m finally able to share my thoughts.

Last month Keurig launched their new 2.0 line of coffee brewers. There are three different 2.0 brewers (K350, K450, and K550) that range in price between $149.99 and $199.99. I received the K550 for FREE and it has the biggest water reservoir (80 ounces compared to the K350’s 60 ounces and the K450’s 70 ounces), the ability to dispense hot water on demand, and offers the most customizable settings.

This is my first Keurig coffee machine so I had a lot of expectations. I’m much more used to brewing my coffee the old fashioned way with a coffee dripper, French press or cheapie multicup coffee machine. Going into this I expected the Keurig 2.0 to produce a strong, steaming cup of coffee quickly and conveniently. Did it deliver?

L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation

L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation in Light Ivory

If I had to choose my favorite drugstore foundation it would have to be L’Oreal Visible Lift Repair Absolute. Out of all the mainstream low-end foundations available it’s the most moisturizing, least drying one I’ve come across so far. So being a huge fan of that, when L’Oreal came out with their new Blur foundation of course I had to give it a try. Like the Repair Absolute foundation, the Blur foundation is also part of L’Oreal’s Visible Lift range of products which are geared towards people with more mature skin. I don’t technically have mature skin but I’ve learned from experience that products marketed to an older demographic are generally more moisturizing and suitable for those with drier skin types like me.

I purchased a tube of L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation at CVS (1.3 fl oz, $14.99). Lucky for me I had a 25% off coupon and some CVS Extra Bucks because, woah, drugstore foundations are getting rather pricey these days.
