Tarte: Not So Slick Oil-Absorbing Blotting Papers (Review)

Image
Description: This pack of naturally-derived papers that are meant to blot away oil and contains 50 oil-blotting papers. These blotting sheets are vegan and are meant to remove shine to keep the skin matte without disturbing makeup. These are great for touch ups. They cost $13 which are how much I paid them for. For more information you can check +tarte cosmetics website right here.
****This product is cruelty-free 👍****
I really like the packaging, it's super cute and with an initial glance I wouldn't of known that it contained blotting sheets. With the consistency and the color of the blotting sheets it's hard to tell which areas of the sheet are covered in oil and which areas are not. 
I completely dislike the texture of the blotting sheets because they are hard to work with and they make my face feel uncomfortable. Plus, they leave my fingers feeling greasy and disgusting. Unfortunately, I have days where my face is really oily and these papers don't even help wi…

((((((This Review Contains Spoilers)))))))))
Summary: Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) teams up with her closest friends and allies, including Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Finnick for the ultimate mission. All together, they leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of Panem and to assassinate President Snow, who is consumed with the thought of killing Katniss.

Sephora Collection: Beautiful Crush Blockbuster Palette (Review)

Image
This limited edition +Sephora collection palette costs $38 and contains 72 eyeshadows, 18 cream eyeliners, 32 lip-glosses and six blushes. A total of 128 eye, lip and cheek colours for an infinite number of looks. For more on Sephora's collection you can check out their website here.

I also wanted more for my buck. So, that's why I also wanted this palette. Plus, I've noticed not many people have reviewed this palette. Guess the beauty community hasn't hyped up this palette yet. Or ever will hype it up. I do find it a bit annoying that there are no names on the shades but I can live with that. 
***This Sephora Collection Palette was not tested on animals👍***
Blushes: They are extremely pigmented so I had to use a light hand while applying the blushes to my cheeks. The blushes are easy …
