Ole Henriksen Skincare Review

Hey everyone! So today’s post I thought I would review some of the Ole Henriksen skincare products. I do want to be honest and let you all know I was sent these products to test out and review, I did not purchase them and I am not being paid to review them. These are 100% my real honest opinions on these products. So lets just jump into the reviews.

IMG_3175

The first product I tried from Ole Henriksen was the Power Bright, 3 step brightening system. This product is my favorite! It really did show instant results in brightening my skin, and I also noticed how smooth my skin got and how visibly smaller my pores looked after using this product. The first step is their Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask. This is my favorite step, this mask smelled amazing and this step alone made my skin look great. They also sell this mask separately, and I will definitely be purchasing it. The next step is the Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate. The final step is the Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. Then you remove with the cleansing sponge that is supplied with the treatment. Once all 3 steps are complete your skin is definitely refreshed and glowing. If you have sensitive skin I do recommend doing a patch test because Vitamin C can be a little harsh on the skin, I personally didn’t have any negative reactions though. I loved this whole treatment, and I will definitely be purchasing this again on my own. It is exclusive to Sephora and it costs $55 for a box with 6 different treatments.

The next product that Ole Henriksen sent me was the Sheer Transformation Moisturizer. I have a love-hate relationship with this product so far. I have very dry skin, so I love trying out different moisturizers in different ways. So I will start with what I like, this moisturizer is definitely hydrating and it is also slightly exfoliating. I also had a huge blemish when I first started using this that was on my face for about a week, and after using this moisturizer and my other Ole Henriksen products it was gone within 2 days. I enjoy using this moisturizer at night, I like to really pack it on before bed and let it soak into my skin while I sleep. Now for what I dislike, I do not like to wear this under my makeup. I feel like when I put it on in the morning after using it at night, or putting it on before my makeup really makes my face become oily through out the day. I also do not like the scent, it doesn’t have a strong scent but while applying it smells a little funky. This product is also exclusive to Sephora and it comes in three different sizes ranging from $14 to $65.

The final product I was given by Ole Henriksen is their Truth Serum Collagen Booster. I feel as if I haven’t used this product enough to give a 100% full review on it. It is jam packed with Vitamin C, and I did find it to be firming on my skin, which is a plus. My favorite thing about this serum is the smell. It smells like an orange 50/50 bar. It honestly smells so good that I will wear it just for the smell alone. It has an amazing scent. This is also a Sephora exclusive, and they have it in multiple sizes ranging from $15-$128 depending on the size.

So overall, I would give the Ole Henriksen brand a solid B based off of these products. I would definitely be interested in trying other products by them, and I will also definitely be purchasing more of the brightening systems, as well as the Truth Sugar Scrub on its own. Thank you Ole Henriksen for the products, and thank you to all of you for reading! Until next time!

Rocksbox Subscription

Hey everyone! So today is a super quick blog post. I have been trying out a new subscription box that I wanted to share with all of you once I had the chance to really try it and look into it.

IMG_2997

So lets break it all down. Rocksbox is a name brand jewelry rental subscription for $19 a month. You pay the $19 a month and in return you receive 3 name brand jewelry pieces at a time to wear for however long you want, and then you send them back whenever you are done and get three more pieces in return. Best thing about it? If you like the piece, you keep it and pay a low discounted member’s only price. How do you know you will even like the products? Rocksbox is extremely personalized! Not only do you fill out a survey for them to get to know you better, but then you can make your own wishlist on their site and they will assign you a stylist! Your stylist will pick an item off of your wishlist and then send you two other items with it that will go well with your own style.

I love to change up my accessories and always wear something new, so this subscription is perfect for me. You also get high end products without spending the high end price. I love to look “rich” without the price tag, it is one of my favorite things. It is also very easy to send the items back, you receive them in an envelope that fits in your mailbox, so you can just put the items back in that envelope with the return shipping label they provide, and just put it right back into your mailbox. It is that simple!

IMG_3166

So, if you all want to give Rocksbox a try, they did give me a code “Corinnascornerxoxoxo” to receive your first month absolutely free! If you end up not liking it, (which I doubt will happen) all you do is unsubscribe on the website and you will never be charged! If you love it, (which you will) all you do is keep adding to your wishlist so they can keep sending you amazing products! Thanks for reading everyone. Let me know if you have ever tried Rocksbox, and what you think about it!

MCM: Makeup Crush Monday

Happy Monday everyone, and welcome to another Makeup Crush Monday! Today I will be talking about a product that I recently bought and fell absolutely in love with, the Loreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator. Oh Lord, if you ladies want to glow then this is what you need to know…about this product!

IMG_3277

This product retails for $12.99 and it is available at Ulta, or most drugstores. The shade I own is c301 Ice Glace, but there are two other shades as well, Rose and Golden. I will eventually be buying those shades as well because I love this product so much. This is a multi use liquid illuminator and can be worn many different ways. You can wear this under your foundation all over your face for a nice glow to your skin, you can also wear this mixed with your foundation or over your foundation. You can wear this as just a highlighter, or all over for an overall dewy look.

IMG_3278

My favorite way to wear this product is to just mix it right in with my foundation, it really does give me a nice glow all throughout my face. I also love how a little bit goes a long way with this product. I have fair skin, so if you have a tan skin tone you may want to get a different shade to ensure that it does actually highlight your skin.

IMG_3285

I am very happy with this product and I will definitely be repurchasing this. I think this will definitely become a go-to product for me, especially during these warmer summer months. Thank you all for reading, and I hope you have an amazing rest of your week!

Makeup Collection: Eyeshadow Palettes

Hello everyone! Today I am going to share more of my makeup collection with all of you. These are my eyeshadow palettes, not including my drug store palettes. All of these palettes I have boughten at either Sephora or Ulta. So I am just going to jump right in with the reviews!

IMG_3237

These swatches up above are from the Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette. The first thing I want to mention about this palette is I love the packaging! I love the packaging for the whole collaboration they did together but especially the palette. The white with black polka dots really does remind me of Gwen Stefani and her fun edgy style. These shadows are very creamy and blendable, like most Urban Decay shadows, but I do think some of the shades lack a little bit in pigment. These are not all the shades but the shades swatched above from top to bottom are… 1987, Danger, Harajuka, Pop, Steady, Serious, Punk, and Anaheim. This collaboration is limited edition and both Ulta and Sephora have these products for a reduced price. I believe this eye palette is currently only $25 at Sephora. For 15 different shades, I think this is a great palette at a great price!

IMG_3261

This is the Lorac Reisling Romance eyeshadow palette, and this palette is absolute garbage. I am honestly not even sure why I still have this palette, I will probably just keep it for my Goddaughter to play with. I bought this on sale at Ulta for about $15 I believe a few months ago. These shades have little to no pigment, the only one with decent pigment is the darkest shade on the right side. I do not own any other Lorac palettes but I have heard good things about the Lorac Pro line and do want to try those palettes out. This palette though is an absolute no for me.

IMG_3254

This palette right here is from Urban Decay. It is an older palette of theirs that is no longer available. I am honestly not even sure what the name of the palette is, but it is silver packaging with a purple skull on the front. It is very similar to their Shadow Box palette that is available at Ulta for $34. It has a few more shadows in it, and very similar shades to this. These shades from top to bottom are… Sin, Chopper, Mildew, Oil Slick, Last Call, Shattered, Grifter, and Polyester Bride. These shadows are amazing! The pigment, how creamy and blendable they are, everything is awesome. In my opinion Urban Decay definitely have some of the best eye shadows in the game.

IMG_3268

This palette right here is also from Urban Decay and it is the Naked 2 Palette. Everybody knows that the Naked Palettes from Urban Decay are staples in everyones collection. This is definitely an everyday palette that I love. This is one of my favorite palettes to travel with because the packaging is so sturdy and I love the brush it comes with as well. I think this is a great palette with colors that look goon on all eye colors and skin tones. I need to get the rest of the Naked Palettes and really complete my collection.

IMG_3251

These three swatches are from Tarte’s Golden Days & Sultry Nights Palette. This is a small palette from Tarte and I am not sure if it is still available. I got this palette on sale from Ulta about 6 months ago for only about $15 I believe. These 3 shades are so creamy and pigmented, they don’t have any shade names but I LOVE that blue shade. It is so pretty. This was a great find that I came across because I love how pigmented these are. It also comes with what I believe is a highlight and contour shade (a white, and warm light brown shade), but those for some reason have little to no pigment and don’t really show up on my skin. For what I spent though, these 3 shades are definitely worth it to me.

IMG_3273

This palette right here is also from Tarte and one of my FAVORITE palettes ever… This is the original Tartelette palette. This palette is so blendable and has such nice everyday shades and some awesome transition shades. I use this palette multiple times a week and never get tired of it. I also really want to get the Tartelette in Bloom palette and that is the newer version of this palette. This is also a palette I love to travel with because of how sleek and easy the packaging is.

IMG_3245

Last but certainly not least is my Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette. Guys…this palette smells like chocolate! I love Too Faced, honestly I have not tried a single product from them that I have not liked. This palette is incredibly blendable, as well as pigmented. It has such fun shades that you can do a crazy look, or a subtle everyday look. I love how the shadows are heart shaped, and also the shade names are so cute. In this picture I watched from top to bottom.. Early Grey, Totally Fetch, Black Currant, Cafe Au Lait, Cotton Candy, Mocha, Molasses Chip, and Sprinkles. The pigment is this palette is unreal! This palette definitely makes me want more of the Too Faced palettes. They are all just so fun and cute, with amazing products.

Well everyone, that is my eyeshadow palette collection. I do have a few drugstore eyeshadow palettes as well but I will save those for another time. Thank you all for reading. Let me know in the comments below if I am missing any awesome palettes that are must haves!

My Top 5 Apps

Hey everyone, so today’s post is going to be my top 5 favorite apps I have on my iPhone! I am always looking into the app store to try out new apps, so I figured I would share my top favorites I have found along the way.

One of my favorite apps definitely has to be the Target Cartwheel App. If you are a frequent shopper at Target than hopefully you already have this app, if not then you have to go download it. It is a free app, and it basically is a great way to save money at Target. They have a lot of different offers on the app that change often, and save you money on all things sold at Target. You start with a certain number of offers you can use at once, and then the more you use the app the more offers you can use at a time. I have redeemed over 90 different offers, and have saved over $200 using this app. I also pair it with my Target debit card to receive another 5% off of all purchases. This is a great app to save money if you love Target like I do.

IMG_3120

One of my new favorite apps that I just recently downloaded is Hautelook. This is an app that is in partnership with Nordstrom’s Rack. It basically has new offers every day for a limited time, from multiple different companies and they have amazing prices. My first purchase with them was Ofra’s liquid lipsticks for 50% off! I have also ordered The Balm Cosmetics, Bliss, and more from Hautelook. The only downside is it does take 2-3 weeks for your products to ship out. I do not mind waiting for the shipping though since you get such a good price on the products. If you are not happy with your purchases you can return them at your local Nordstrom’s Rack, which I think is nice because it is a lot less of a hassle. So far though I have been happy with all of my purchases from them.

IMG_3122

My next favorite app is the Afterlight photo editing app. I really just like this app when I want to do a quick edit. I also enjoy the filters they provide. My favorite filter to use is “Bright Fire”. It is definitely my go to app when I want to do a really quick edit, or just throw a filter on. I don’t really use instagram filters because to me they are just starting to get a little old and boring, so I love that I can use this app to switch things up.

IMG_3123

Another favorite photo editing app of mine is Facetune. I  know a lot of beauty bloggers and beauty youtubers use Facetune as well to edit selfies and makeup photos. I love this app for editing photos of myself when I really want to show my makeup. You can do so many different things with this app and it really is easy to use. You can whiten your teeth, smooth lines, focus on details, change the tones, or even reshape the photo. You can also add filters and frames on this app as well. I think the quality of my photos have definitely improved ever since using this app.

IMG_3125

Last but not least is the Kylie app by Kylie Jenner. This app does cost $2.99 a month to subscribe to but not only do I love it because I am a big Kylie fan but I LOVE the Kylie Radio feature. She has a 24/7 music streaming service on her app, and it is commercial free which I love. You can’t skip songs but honestly I really like the songs that play. It is a lot of rap, hip hop, and R&B, but it does get a little mixed up every once in a while. I also really like how she breaks down her outfits and will link places to buy what she wears, and she also will provide cheaper alternatives. She also updates her fans on her Kylie Cosmetics line using her app as well. The app also has a live streaming service which is fun to watch when she uses it as well.

IMG_3126

That is it for my top 5 apps at the moment. Thank you all for reading. Let me know in the comments below if you know of any apps that I have to check out. I love trying new apps!

Target Haul

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week and enjoying this nice weather we are starting to get with Summer coming in. Today’s post is just going to be a nice little breakdown on my last Target shopping trip. I have a really bad problem about going to Target whenever I’m bored and just buying whatever is on their shelves (I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem either). So let’s just get into it.

IMG_3032

The first thing I put in my basket walking in were these super cute little note cards. I love the dollar spot section where everything is only like $1-$3, and I can easily spend $25+ in that section every time I walk through it. I got a pack of thank you cards, as well as just a blank floral pack. They each come with 8 cards and envelopes that match, so for $1 a pack it really just can not be beat.

IMG_3033

I also picked up one of the new Covergirl Tru Blend Blushes. I bought one of their Tru Blend Bronzers a few weeks ago and it has quickly become my favorite drug store bronzer, so I knew I wanted to try a blush too. I picked up the shade “light rose”. I have yet to wear it but I did swatch it and it is a very very light pink with a nice shimmery glow. I even think this could be either used as a highlighter or mixed with another highlighter for a nice light pink tint. It is so pretty, and I actually really like the packaging as well.

IMG_3018

Another cosmetics item I bought is the NYC Lovatics by Demi Mascara. I basically bought this because I haven’t really tried NYC before, and I am a fan of Demi Lovato, so you put those two things together and throw a $4 price tag on it, I am all in! I tried it once, and it isn’t totally amazing but for $4 it was not bad, and I also love when mascara is reallllly black, and this one was definitely jet black. It does have a somewhat odd scent, I am not sure why, it isn’t bad but just a little strange.

IMG_3031

I also bought 2 different packs of wipes to try. Yes, I am sure by now you all know and if not now you do, that I am obsessed with wipes currently. Makeup removing wipes, exfoliating wipes, body wipes, hand wipes, any kind of wipes. I want them, I need them. So the first pack I picked out were just regular kleenex wipes. I like to keep these in my purse or car, just for any spills or for hand wipes. I am a full time nanny of 3 kids, so hand wipes are always a must have. The other pack of wipes I bought are the Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes. I am not a fan of these. I have been wanting to try the Simple brand for a while after hearing so many good reviews on their products, but these wipes were just a no for me. I don’t like the way they feel, a little too rough for me. I also didn’t think they even cleansed my face or took of my makeup very well. They just aren’t the best and now I just use them to wipe off my makeup swatches of my arms.
IMG_3022

I also bought these guys right here. I got a refill pack for my Venus Swirl razor. If you are a girl that shaves and you do not use this razor, we can not be friends. This razor is life changing. It is the best hands down, and it is called Swirl because it has a little metal ball that the blades sit on, and so it in a way just curves the razor with your body. It is honestly amazing, best razor ever. I also picked up this little flamingo makeup bag because it is adorable, it was less than $2, and because I told you I have a shopping problem.

IMG_3020

Last products I bought and they technically were not bought at Target. I got these Sinful X Kylie Jenner nail polishes at Walgreens but then I noticed Target has the same color for the same price, so I figured I would share them on here with you guys. Everyone knows I am a big Kylie fan so of course I had to try these. I haven’t worn any of the colors yet but I did paint my God Daughter’s toes with them, and so far so good! I got the duo chrome color “Kleopatra” and the shimmer matte color “V.I.Peach”. These retailed for about $2.50-$3.

Also if you guys are really nosey like I am, I bought tuna fish and packing tape as well. That is it for my Target trip this time. Thank you all for reading, and I hope you enjoyed. Have a great day!

MCM: Morphe 9B

IMG_2969

Happy Monday everyone! Today’s post is another Makeup Crush Monday. My Makeup Crush this week is the Morphe 9B Blush Palette. This palette is only $19.99 and I am in love with it. It is very pigmented and it is also extremely blendable. I love how it basically has a blush that can match almost any look you are doing. They have subtle colors, bright colors, dark colors, and light colors. My favorite shade is the light coral shade that is the first shade in the palette, and the top shade in the swatches I have pictured below. I really love the Morphe brand in general. I am always really happy with their products and I love how they are such a good price. I typically apply my blush with the Elf Blush Brush and I believe that retails for only $3, so this is a very affordable brush to apply the product. Morphe also sells affordable brushes as well if you would like to order one with the palette. I also like the Morphe packaging because of how sleek and simple it is. It is just a simple black, open and close palette, and it is also very sleek and skinny so it doesn’t take much room up at all. Overall I am very happy with this product and it is officially a must have in my collection.
