DISAPPOINTED PRODUCT⎪Marc Jacobs Palette in Lolita

I recently made this purchase. After being disappointed with all the Marc Jacobs beauty products I've tried, I thought it was about time to give the brand another try. This time I went for their "Lolita" palette. I heard a good deal about it, swatched it for myself at the store... and thought I made a good choice to get this. However, after swooning over its sleek packaging and trying the colors on my eyes for over a week, I came to the conclusion that it really wasn't worth the price. Though the colors look beautiful and the pigmentation is great, the colors did not show up on my skin. It was beautiful to see swatched on my arms, but when they were actually on my eyes, the colors weren't noticeable and even when you could see I had color on my eyes, they weren't exactly flattering. They didn't make me look in the mirror several times a day and think, nice! Instead, I felt that I could save money and get a different palette that actually had color that would complement my skin better. And the really glittery middle shade has such big glitters in it that by the end of the day, I had glitter all over my face!

As much as I tried to love this palette, the color choice weren't that great and not truly worth the money.

Essie "Ladylike" + Deborah Lippmann "Boom Boom Pow"

Just beautiful! I tried layering this with some gold Deborah Lippmann "Boom Boom Pow" and it was so pretty. This is a picture from my Instagram :)

HELP ME kit by Dr.Jart+

This Dr.Jart Ceramidin Starter Kit is the absolute best. I've never heard of "ceramidin" before, but whatever it is, it is amazing for the skin. This duo kit has one liquid product and one cream product. The liquid is step one, and it immerses into the skin and makes it moist and supple. Then you apply the cream on top (tube) and it kind of seals the moisture in.

These two products are said to provide all-day moisture protection. It is enriched with creamed 3 and sea-butter to soften, moisturize the skin. The "cera-barrier" ensures comfortable, soft skin and long-lasting hydration. And finally, it enhances the skin's natural strength and function.

That mini explanation is right off of their box description, and without a doubt, all of those are true. I was worried about cutting down my skincare routine to just two products, but I really wanted to give this a try. By the first application, my skin felt no tightness and it was so super soft. My angry acne died down, completely. And what is this ceramide thing that locks in the moisture?! It must be some magic potion I just never heard about until now.

This simple two products have changed my skin drastically. I love it. And the products just seep in and disappear, but the hydration? Does not disappear. I usually get really uncomfortable and tight skin day and night, but this is enough for both day and night. I know people like to have something heavy at night, but this seems to satisfy the night time skin as well!

I'm definitely going for the full-size of both, although I love this starter kit size and design! If you haven't tried it, I recommend this 10 out of a 10. It is seriously so good. I wanted to give it a good try, and now that I'm almost done with them, I feel I can honestly tell you that it has been just this all month and it's improved my skin... a lot.

Hydrate and lock it in. NO residue. ALL day hydration. Glow and softness? Yes.

Just so in love with this!
