What Beauty Products Have I Finished Recently?


Fountain of Truth The Truth Insta-Facelift Elixir

The Insta-Face Lift Elixir is a very lightweight treatment that's meant to help with anti-aging sans any cosmetic treatments. It's meant to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and create tighter, smoother looking skin. It also plumps up your skin to help increase bounce and radiance.

Look, realistically speaking, my skin isn't at the point where anti-aging is really my top priority. I'm not against starting to use it "young" but I'm also only 23 and think I have a couple of more years until my proactive anti-aging skincare routine kicks off.



Would I repurchase? Not necessarily, but I'm not against the idea!

This concentrate can be used anywhere though, it's not just limited to your bikini line. You can use it on your underarms, legs, brows, lip, chin, wherever you're prone to redness. While you're in the shower, just use the little finger mitt it comes with to exfoliate the area that you get ingrown hairs most frequently. When you're finished in the shower or bath or whatever you prefer, apply a few drops of the concentrate to the bumps. It gradually banishes the pesky bumps and redness that can happen after a particularly rushed shave (we've all been there, it's okay), soothes irritations, and eradicates ingrown hairs wherever you struggle with them. 

I never tested this anywhere but my bikini line yet so I can't attest to what it does in other areas. All I know is that I have a friend in this product because it's keeping me razor bump free, which can be a major pain in the ass. Lace underwear + tiny razor bumps on the bikini line = disaster. Let's just leave it at that!

Would I repurchase? 100%! I'm planning on getting some other things from this brand as well.


You could very easily just use this what it is in intended for, a liquid highlighter to place on top of your cream products (foundation, concealers, etc) and leave be. However, I like to mix it in with my foundation to place on my cheeks before I set then with powder because I cannot not set my face with powder. It's part of the reason why my makeup lasts so long and I don't need to do touchups. However, even when I do set this combination my skin is still dewy and natural looking, which is all I want in life.

Would I repurchase? Yes, probably!


BlowPro Faux Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo might be my favorite dry shampoo? Probably? Maybe? Hear me out, yes this is a loose powder so if you have darker hair, you might have a bit of a tough time blending this into your roots. Will it be worth it though? Yes, absolutely. This powder is lightweight yet still absorbs all of the oils that I need to be sucked up so it doesn't look like I've been slapped in the head with an entire pizza pie. All you have to do it sh-sh-sh-shake it up and squeeze the tube to puff out some of the powder rather than pouring and shaking it all onto your hair.

Would I repurchase? Absolutely! I'm working through another bottle right now, but if I don't get my hands on a different dry shampoo between finishing this one, it's a no-brainer for me.


Y'all already know that Lexli saved my skin last summer so it's no surprise that there are some bits and bobs I've finished up from this brand. First, we have their moisturizer which just as it is named: a lightweight moisturizer that, drumroll, keeps your skin hydrated. I love that this has a pump and is so simple that no matter what condition my skin is in, it never irritates it. It's good for all skin types and works well under makeup as well.

Would I repurchase? For sure! I'm working through like, three other moisturizers right now but it's under $40 and is a really dope addition to your skincare routine.


I bought this when I ran out of my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder because I like using loose powder to set my undereye concealer. I wasn't feeling like dishing out a ton of money for a new loose powder so this was my solution. It's supposed to be a "soft focus" powder that masks fine lines and makes your complexion look all nice and radiant. This was super smooth on my under eyes and set my concealer pretty damn well, especially for $6!

Would I repurchase? For sure!



Here we are again with the anti-aging products. In full disclosure, I got both of these (yes, I went through two) at an event, but it's $122 so you knew I wasn't going to let them go to waste. This is a two-in-one formula that contains plant extracts like turmeric which has really great anti-aging properties. It's meant to make your skin smoother, firmer, and radiant. So while I'm not necessarily looking to smooth out any wrinkles or anything, it's also good for dullness and uneven texture which I do have because of my lovely ten years stint with acne!

Would I repurchase? No, because it's just waaaaaaay out of my price point right now.


This product is recommended for people with hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne, dark spots, melasma, scars, and acne scars. Its main ingredients are Tranexamic Acid which minimizes discoloration and brown patches, Kojic Acid which boosts brightness, Niacinamide which helps reduce the appearance of discoloration in the skin, and HEPES which activates the natural enzymes in your skin and breaks bonds that bind dead skin cells to the surface of your skin AKA an exfoliant.

Would I repurchase? Probably not. It's super expensive so I'd rather just get a Niacinamide + Zinc serum for $6 from The Ordinary.



This is a Glycolic Acid exfoliant that also helps fight free radicals so like, a big middle finger to pollution and all of the environmental factors that are affecting our skin and we can't even do anything to stop it. I mean, we could, but...I digress. It helps fight against aging and sun damage, but if you have acne, it unclogs pores and helps reduce hyperpigmentation from scarring and redness.

Would I repurchase? Yes! I'm working with like, three other glycolic acid products right now but down the line, for sure!



First thing, this liner is very easy to control. The formula keeps it from bleeding all of the place, which lets you be pretty precise with what you're doing. The tip is stiffer than I'm used to, which I thought might feel like I was jabbing myself in the eye every time I used it but was completely wrong about. It really helps with the precision that I was talking about earlier, but it has some bendability around the tip which is what is important for my everyday winged liner (I mean, duh, hence Feline Flick). It's also like black and long-lasting and all of that important stuff that you would expect from a $30 liner. 

My cons list is pretty short, but important still. Like I said, it's black but it could be blacker. I don't notice it too much because I always set my eyeliner with black eyeshadow out of habit (but yes, I've worn this without setting it to see how it works, I'm not dumb). It's also a drier formula than I'm used to, but that might be strictly up to my preference on eyeliners and not an actual fault.

Would I repurchase? Maybe! I'm not against it.


This mascara is pretty self-explanatory. It's supposed to be a lengthening and volumizing mascara with a silky texture to give your lashes a natural look. To be quite honest, this mascara was a wet, messy piece of trash. It made my lashes clumpy and heavy, got all over the place, and barely added any length or volume to my lashes. 

Would I repurchase? Under no circumstances would I ever repurchase this.


Okay, this is obviously a similar situation to the Ulta mascara. It's supposed to make your lashes look volumized and lengthened. It has a buildable formula with a thicker brush top. This was better than the Ulta one, but it was pretty average if I'm being honest.

Would I repurchase? Not necessarily. I like other drugstore mascaras more.



I feel like I've been talking about this concealer since the dawn of time and I don't know what else I can say about it. I run out of this every few months and this is the only undereye concealer that I've used for basically the past two years. It covers my dark circles, doesn't crease, and is affordable af which is all I'm looking for. 

Would I repurchase? I'm about to buy a new one in like a week!


I've been using this heat protectant spray since middle school. I mean, not this same particular bottle, but this brand. I remember first buying it when I got my first straightener and no doubt started damaging the fuck out of it trying to make it as straight and flat as possible. Y'all remember 2007, can you blame me? I've used this pretty religiously since because, uh, protect your hair guys? I've evolved into using some more "grown-up" heat protectant products like UV protection serums and what not, but I still have a special place in my heart for this spray. 

Would I repurchase? For the price and the #memories? Absolutely.
