Time has passed since the new year eve though this is my first blog of the year. It has been a long year! We have lost loved ones, overcame obstacles and became stronger! I hope that everyone stayed safe and healthy this year. I was sick but tested negative for COVID several times. I was focusing on getting better before I started my final semester. 

This semester is different for me because last year my school has be virtual for the most part and my classes was only available virtual. A couple of my classes are in person and I will be working on an inter I had method on choosing certain classes for my semesters. I did have to take the introductory courses first but I had some choices with certain classes. There was this class, Web Design, I wanted to save for the last semester because I knew that I would have so much fun taking the class. I saved the best for last.

I wanted to begin my beauty blog of 2022 with updates on current products and products that I have been using. I have tried sever products and have favorite products that I constantly use. There are several products that I shared my first impression. Now, time has passed where I can shared my experience.

Chantecaille Cheek Gelée Vibrant
Products above:

  1. Le Metier de Beaute Longevity Serum Primer - This is definitely a product that I will be brining with me from 2021. The primer instantly illuminates, soothes and hydrates. This primer also acts as a serum that gives the skin a luminous glow and soothes redness. I love pairing this with any foundation, especially the Peau Vierge anti-aging Complexe to create that perfect glowing look that lasts all day. Get the duo for a great deal on the Le Metier de beaute site. This duo was reviewed on my Le Métier de Beaute review 
  2. Le Metier de Beaute anti-aging Complexe - A foundation that I can't stop talking about. I have featured it in several articles since I first tried it. One tube lasts me a long time and I am almost out of my tube. I use this for every look. I like to pair this with other foundations to create my own desired foundation look. The texture is smooth. It gives glowing, natural look that feels like my own skin. My skin tone is even out and the foundation lasts all day. This is perfect if you want a luxurious, hydrating foundation that is lightweight and looks natural. It gives a glowing complexion. You can find other Le Metier de Beaute products at
  3. Le Metier de Beaute peau vierge anti-aging complexe is also featured specially here describing my one year experience 
  4. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Glow Setting Powder - I am a fan of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk collection. My favorite is the powder because of the glow and texture. As you can see, my power is getting to the end of the pan. This is something that is hard for me to achieve because I have a collection of beauty products. It gives a natural glow that diffuses a touch of radiance to the skin. This powder is perfect for those that love. Reviewed Here You can also get it from Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Giorgio Armani Site
  5. Chantecaille Cheek Gelée in Vibrant - I love products that are versatile. They allow you to create a look with just one product and a great tool for a quick makeup look. This product can be used for your cheeks and lips. I also use it on my lips to add a splash of color and create a unified look. This blush creates a glowing look that also feels hydrating. A little bit goes a long ways. Chantecaille cheek gelee is also mentioned here

TrapStix Lip Balm*

Trapstix lip balm
Leminem, J. Cola and Gucci Mango

Trapstix lip balm collection has a cute play on words name for each chapstick. The formula is all natural that is gentle on the skin. The winter weather calls for extra chap stick to carry with you to help sooth dried chapped lips. The flavor and smell is soft and not over powering but just enough to smell delicious. It has just became cold down here in Texas. Our coldest weather is usually after Christmas. It snowed years ago on Christmas Even and that is when we realized how hard it is to build a snowman.  

Tom Ford Beauty Review

Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eyeshadow Duo Golden Peach

This is the first product I have tried from Tom Ford. I have always wanted to try the brand but I wasn't sure which product I wanted to try first. I wanted to try something that was versatile that can create many different looks. I was actually influenced by another content creator, Beauty Professor, who always raved about this eyeshadow. I have seen it look so beautiful on her instagram stories.

This eyeshadow comes in two textures: cream and powder. The shadow is a warm rose color and the cream is a pale pink shade. You can layer the colors together to create a rich and vibrant look or wear alone. I have been utilizing the cream eyeshadows more lately with my eyeshadow look. My beauty tip is to add a dash of the cream on the link to finish your eye look to make it pop more. The golden shade can be used as a shimmer reflector to create a soft, golden shimmer. The topper is a softer shade but my tip is to spray your brush with setting spray before swiping the color on your eyes to intensify the color.

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Review and swatches

Overall, I love that I can grab this eyeshadow and create a quick look that is glowing and luxurious. The cream is my favorite part to use my itself. It's more pigmented that has an illumination. I like to diffuse the edge of the color with the golden glow and put it under my brow bone instead of layer it on top because the golden glow lightens up the cream shade. This has been one of my go to eyeshadows to use and I love discovering different ways to utilize the Tom Ford Eyeshadow duo.

You can purchase this product from Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Nordstrom

Charlotte Tilbury Palette Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury makeup is all about the glow with their warm peachy, rose gold and golden shades. I am an ardent fan of Charlotte Tilbury because the shimmery, glowing look is my favorite makeup look. I have been collecting their palettes and using them. There hasn't been a palette that has disappointed me. I have reviewed some makeup in one of my previous Charlotte Tilbury reviews and was going to share my experience as I have used the products more.

Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm

I have been using this palette for a couple of months. This palette I shared with you right before the holidays. The colors are shimmery, glowing and pigmented. You can used a soft, tapered brush for an softer finish. This palette comes in handy for a quick contour or a quick highlight. This palette delivers a high pigmented glow. This is for those who love and adore that bold glow. Want a more subtle glow? Check out the next palette.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Duo

This palette doesn't show up well when swatched. The color pictured is a lightweight color that is created more for lighter tones. There is a darker palette available but I cannot share my honest review on the darker palette. There was a complaint about the powder showing up muddy. I experienced this at first but played around with the powder. After research and trial, I have found that this powder works best with a tapered brush. I have so many different brushes in my collection. Charlotte Tilbury has a tapered brush that many users of the powder rave about. It's about trial and error and using the right tools. 

Westman Atelier Rendezvous eye Pods Palette Review*

This is the first time I have tried Westman Atelier beauty brand. Westman Atelier is a clean beauty brand and their packaging is gorgeous. They have so many great products that I have been wanting to try. I just adored this set that has three eyeshadow pods with their iconic hearts. The pods are magnetic and close with a twist. They stack on top of each other and are easy to carry around.

The luxurious creamy texture makes it easy to blend on the eyes. You can apply with your finger, soft fluffy brush for a soft blend or use a more course brush to create a more bold color.  

Colors in the palette
  • Bonne Chance - khaki green
  • Bisou - golden peach
  • Frappe - mink brown

New Years goal: Use more sustainable products

I have decided to make it a goal to use more sustainable products this year. I wanted to introduce you to some brands and products that meets these standards. 

Sea witch Botanicals*

This is a woman-owned brand and you will be supporting a small company that has sustainable packaging. It's a clean beauty brand that offers cruelty-free cosmetics, vegan lipcare, facial care, vegan soaps and more! They are a certified b Corp and certified "Toward Zero Waste" company which chooses to recycle, compost and reuse any ingredients, packaging and waste. 

Products listed:

Soothing Facial Toner

Oath Lip and Cheek Tint
Pearl Rose Lip and Cheek Tint

Sea Witch Botanicals soothing facial toner

This toner feels gentle on the skin leaving a fresh, gentle feeling that even the sensitive skin can use. It keeps me hydrated and feeling refreshed. It helps preps my face for my moisturizer. I love the floral smell because it's a soft smell that isn't overpowering. The bottle is made out of glass. It comes with and without an atomizer that allows your to spritz the product onto your face. A little bit goes a long way as well. Grab a bottle for only $14 on their site.

Sea witch Botanicals Lip and Cheek Tint

I was given two shades to try out and review: Oath and Pearl Rose. One thing I love about a product that makes me use it more than the other products is that its versatility. Being able to grab one product for more than one use is what makes like it even more. I can use this on both my lips and cheeks. The Sea Witch botanicals lip and cheek tint is also hydrating and sheer. They are great at softening the texture of my lips while adding a splash of color. This lip balm has a sweet smell that is so delicious. I smell an orange zesty smell in the oath color and a cocoa butter-like smell that reminds me of chocolate for the Pearl Rose shade.

Also, temperature does change the consistency of the product. Place the balm in your pocket if the lip and cheek balm is too hard to soften it up. Remember to check your pockets before doing laundry. Store in a cool place if it gets too soft. 

Reusable products for your needs

I wanted to share with you some products that you can reuse for your traveling needs that will help you live a more sustainable life as well as help you in your busy everyday life.  

Insulated wine tumbler from Well Told*

Well Told insulated wine glasses will help keep your hot drinks hot for 12 hours and the cold drinks cold down for 24 hours do the last drop. What is fun about this product is that you can customized it based on color, saying and map of any city. I chose the night sky map and applied a birthdate for the customization to give as a birthday gift.

It makes mixing easier so that you can mix and drink. It comes with a travel bag that makes carrying easier. 

Ecologie Reusable Swedish dish Cloths

Ecologie Helps prevents waste of disposable paper towels. They are easy to clean and wipe up any mess. I am always making a mess in the kitchen as I am cooking or eating. Sometimes I just need a quick wipe and clean. It's so tempting to use a paper towel because of the convenience. These are right there by my kitchen sink so I can wipe up quickly and reuse when needed.

Amika 3D Volume Collection

As part of the Amika Ambassador, I get to try new products before they launch and share my experience with you. Please allow me to introduce to you the Amika 3D Collection. Our newest member to the volume collection is the 3D Daily Thickening treatment. This Launched in January 2022! I have been trying it for over a month and I am loving the results. My hair was thinning and falling out and I have noticed a difference in the texture and thickness of my skin. It's formulated with Redensyl to help promote hair growth. 

Directions: Spray on the scalp on towel dry hair and massage into scalp. I like to use a scalp massager with that. Use twice daily consistently for results. Put it by your sink so that you can remember. 

I love the whole collection as a whole. My only feedback is the conditioner is hard to get out of the bottle and hard to blend. It's best to twist off the lid and I have to use it like a ketchup bottle. It is a chore but softens my hair once I get it. The texture of the conditioner is very lightweight.
