My Skincare and Beauty Empties

There are several products that I love so much that I have used them all. It shows loyalty and that you you enjoy using the products. I am happy to share with you some empties that I have recently used up or they are almost empty. 

Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask*

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Face Mask
Using My Kitsch Roller to Smooth Estee Lauder Mask

I have worked for many brands when I was in the beauty industry. Estee Lauder was one of the brands that I have worked for and there are three products that remain my favorite from Estee Lauder: the advanced night repair line, the Double Wear Line and Perfectly Clean Cleansers / Toners. Sadly, I have used my very last Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair face Mask. This face mask is an acting face that is to be used weekly in order to give your Advanced night repair regimen a boost to give a deeper and quicker repair when you need it the most. I have noticed that my skin felt softer, radiant and the texture of my skin has improved after wearing the for a few minutes. 

Lancome Paris Genifique Youth Activating Serum*

Lancome Genifique is one of my favorite serums. I love the brand. I used to work for the brand as a beauty advisor. I have also received gratis from the company when I was working there. This serum has been part of my beauty routine. It helps hydrate my skin and gives it a youthful appearance and healthy glow. Reviewed Here!

  • Estee Lauder perfectly clean foaming cleanser* has a soft smell that feels calming. It's a three in one: makeup remover, cleanser and toner. I love the way that it helps remove my makeup
  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair*: This Serum is iconic! The first thing I fell in love with is the smell. Unpopular opinion but I can smell this pleasant vitamin smell and I just adore it. For those who don't like the smell, the smell disappears quickly. It absorbs into the skin and I can feel a soft tingly as it repairs my skin. Advanced night repair is very popular and sells so many per day at my store. It's an Iconic product from Estee Lauder. It's has a clear golden color and a smooth thin texture that absorbs into the skin. Estee Lauder Advanced Night repair is the first serum and top selling serum. Its results show why it's sales so well.

  • Hum Nutrition Hair sweet hair* helps achieve healthy and stronger hair.
  • Glam glow star potion Liquid Charcoal oil is a transformative oil that helps clarifies and protects the skin. I wasn't sure about this oil because it leaves a greasy feeling and sits on top of my skin. I included this one because it was one of the first products I tried, after the SuperMud, and I still gave the other Glam Glow products a try. I tried it till the end. I love All other Glam glow products that I tried and will continue to include the other face masks, moisturizers and cleansers that I love. 
  • Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion This lotion is my favorite lotion. I always include this into everyone of my routine. It helps gives my face the moisture that it needs to absorb in all of my skin. I am loyal to this moisturizer. This lotion sold several times a day when I worked for the company years ago. It leaves my skin feeling soft and prepped for my other skincare products. I always find myself having to replenish this one often.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Amani Luminous Silk

The Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is a medium coverage foundation that feels lightweight. I always find myself grabbing this foundation for when I want an everyday, radiant medium coverage look. This foundation feels like natural skin and blends into my skin and covers up my flaws. The texture is silky and I love to blend with my fingers to get the natural medium coverage finish. It gives my skin a flawless finish that is both natural and radiant.

Giorgio Armani Luminous concealer is lightweight and silky. The texture is smooth and natural feeling like a second skin. It comes with a applicator stick and a the beautiful Armani Logo on the lid. The precision tip is perfect to get to the hard to reach areas such as the corner of the nose. It can be used as an illuminator or concealer. 

I usually get a shade lighter than my skin but this concealer is perfect for face and eyes so I decided to get the concealer more of my skin tone so I can conceal on my face. I will get a lighter color for the highlighting effect.

I will be introducing you to three products and share with you my first impression of the products. I will go more in depth of my experience as I try the products more.
  • Hydra Lip tint in Picnic Plum *
  • Beyond Powder in OMG
  • Hydra Veil Primer

Hydra Veil Primer

ILLAMASQUA hydra veil primer

This primer has two functions: it smoothes your skin texture and hydrate your skin to prep your skin for your foundation. This is great for dry skin to help give your skin a hydrating boost so that your foundation will apply smoother, last longer and keep it from flaking or streaking. 

I used this with my Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation for my first use. It's a perfect pairing because the Armani is a silky, radiant foundation with hydrating benefits. They both help with texture, glowing skin and to blur imperfections. I have been using this foundation for over a month and I love the benefits and the medium to full coverage. 

The ingredient callouts are Microalgae, Vitamin C and B3 to help provide healthy looking skin that will maintain all day hydration. It also provides a calming and refreshing effect to your skin. I felt my skin feeling refreshed thanks to the gel like texture. 
ILLAMASQUA hydrating primer


This primer comes with a spatula that is attached to the top of the lid. You slide it out. It helps keep the product from being contaminated and germ free. What I noticed is that the texture feels bouncy when I scoop it out. A little goes a long ways. Scoop it out and apply with your hands or you can mix with your favorite foundation. 

Hydra Lip Tint Picnic Plum

Hydra LIp Tin Picnic Plum
ILLAMASQUA hydra lip tint

This lipstick is a sheer color that provides conditioning to the lips. It has a high gloss texture without the sticky feeling. The duo shade has impressed me because it is very aesthetically pleasing. It blends into the lips effortlessly and naturally. I applied this directly on my lips but the duo color allows you to customized the color by using a lip brush to pick out each color to load up and mix on the back of the hand. You can add from each color as much as you desire until you get the desired shade. Any remainder shade can be used as a blush to provide a subtle glowing color on your cheeks. 


Beyond Powder - OMG

Beyond Powder highlighter

This is meant to be a natural highlighter. You can use it on the tip of your cheeks, corner of eyes, bridge of nose or anywhere else you want that natural lit within glow.
