Too Faced Cosmetics Hangover 3-in-1 Primer and Setting Spray | Review



When Too Faced announced this product, my heart almost exploded to see that the Hangover line was expanding. One of my tried and trues is TF's Hangover Replenishing Face Primers and I cannot even remember how many tubes I've blown through. Don't get me wrong, this is a 3-in-1 spray so it's not like I was expecting it to perform exactly like the Hangover primer because, well, that would be a bit redundant. However, because of the primer's performance, I definitely had high expectations for this product to live up to the standard of the predecessor in the Hangover line. To find out if it lived up to the challenge, keep on reading, glow-getters!

With that, I've narrowed down 6 tips and tricks using some of my most trusted products in both skin care and makeup to keep me looking matte and glam in the summer heat.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist | Review



This was a purchase that stemmed from not only the hype on social media and YouTube, but one of my great friends who is a Sephora employee that swears by this product. I'm quite a fan of many of Tatcha's skin care products such as the Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder (a gentle exfoliator for sensitive skin) and the Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, so I was looking forward to giving this mist a go. According to the brand, this is supposed to be a fine mist moisturizer that can be used under or over makeup for a dewy glowing skin. It is allegedly good for any skin type, supposed to leave a moisturized feeling, and help deplete dull and dry looking skin. With these claims and my dry skin issues, I had to put it to the test.
