Review: Hippie Tested, Diva Approved: W3LL PEOPLE ColorBalm




The ColorBalm is the first product I tried from W3LL PEOPLE. "Advanced performance, premium 100% natural/organic ingredients, and sustainability" are the brand's three core principles (as listed on their website.) Everything they sent me, from the packaging to the notes and the samples, was absolutely adorable, (and eco-friendly), and made me fall in love with them even before I tried the product.

My New Bronzer: Ilia Beauty Illuminator in Sway

























I promised I would not come back with another lippie review, so I picked the Ilia Beauty Illuminator in the shade Sway. During the holidays I began to play with it to see how I could use it. I only found one other review on the web by the lovely london makeup girl and I thought it would be nice to add my thoughts, and share a few more  photos and swatches, in case you had your eye on this product. This is a really interesting product that can be used in different ways, as long as the shade is right for your skin tone. Although it is called an illuminator, it can also fit in the bronzer/cream eyeshadow category.
