Best Of The Best Skincare // High End & Drug Store // GIVEAWAY



Hello, and happy Friday!! Today I wanted to talk about a few products that I've been testing out over the past 2-3 months. Some I purchased myself, some I won in a giveaway, and some were sent to me for testing purposes. There will be a lot of information in this post, so be sure to bookmark this or share it on your Facebook that way you can go back to it if need be. Also, there's a giveaway that you're not gonna wanna miss out on!! (Yes I said, gonna wanna 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣). I will link everything to the most affordable place to  get it from. Cause you know, we tryin to save money over here!! 



I'll start with Sunday Riley first, only because it involves a scrub. And yall know, my OCD will not allow me to go out of order! I do not typically purchase the "high end" products, well because, budget! Actually, I entered the #sundayrileyxlydiaelisemillen giveaway and won! So they sent me their Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm, the C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightning Serum, and their Luna Retnol Sleeping Night Oil.  

Blue Moon is an amazing cleaning balm. I have combination skin, my t-zone is oily, where  my cheeks and jawline are dry. And this makes my skin feel beautiful. I use it as a mask,; I'll leave it for about 20 minutes then rinse off. 

C.E.O. is a vitamin c brightening serum. Its lightweight but super moisturizing. It does exactly what it says; brightens, plumps, and tones. I would use this after cleansing.

Luna is a retnol sleeping oil. After cleansing and toning, I would press this oil into my skin. It's a night oil, so you dont have to rinse. I absolutely love the silky consistency on my skin. The scent kinda reminds my of an essential oil, like tea tree maybe? 






I know that yall have all heard me RAVE about Influenster over the past few years. And today, that continues! I received these amazing products totally FREE for testing and reviewing purposes! I've had the honor to try out these fabulous DRUG STORE products, that are HIGH END quality. I've been wanting to try a hyaluronic acid for over a year now, but I just wasn't sure which one. So Influenster made it easy for me. With the combination of the hyaluronic acid serum and the vitamin C concentrate my face has never been so glowy and shiny. After cleansing, I will pat the serum all over my face and neck. Then, I will press the vitamin c in. You can use morning or night, I use at night. I was so thankful to be apart of this campaign. I had just ran out of my Sunday Riley CEO, when this came in the mail!!





I found this Olay Whip in the clearance section at Walmart a few weeks ago. After reading the label I had to give it a try! And I'm so glad that I did. This product is so moisturizing on my face. You can use it morning and night.  I usually use it in the mornings after I wash my face. It has a very calming and clean scent to it. It leaves my face so soft and super moisturized! (Side note: I paid $15 for this at my local Walmart. But everywhere online is $29-$39. If you go in store to purchase, be sure to check the clearance section IN the makeup section. There were like 6 when I found this. That was a few months ago though. )






Thank you Formulate for partnering with me on today's post! Abby, from the Formulate team reached out to me with an invite to test out their brand new shampooing system. I found the concept to be extremely innovative, so of course I accepted. Formulate is a shampoo & conditioner that is perfectly engineered just for you! Its formulated based on your hair and your environment. 

So basically how it works, you fill out a profile that's completely customized to YOUR hair. (They even have an app so that you can make changes if you need to.) The profile not only wants to know your color and texture; it also wants to know how you're wanting your hair to eventually be, like what are your hair goals?! It even let's you choose what scent you want, and how strong. I went with At Dawn in Strong. I love for a good smelling shampoo and conditioner to actually stick with me throughout the day. Even when I wash at night, my hair still smells good the next morning! And besides ALLLL that, the packaging is totally Instagram worthy!! 

The coolest part about today's post, is I have worked out a giveaway for yall!! 😍 This will allow one of you gals to try it out for yourself! It's so easy to enter, just click the giveaway link below. It will take you to my personal profile. There's a black "enter my giveaway" link, click that. It will want to know your first name, email, and you IG handle (which is optional) and that's it! It's so easy! 

I hope today's post has been super informative for yall. I 100% recommend any one of these products! It searched for the absolute best price for yall. A tip for the Sunday Riley products at Sephora, ask for a sample!! 🤣 You WILL NOT regret it! Anyways, I really hope yall enjoyed all this info!! Be sure to enter my giveaway, PLEASE!!! And I'll see yall next week!!

Where I Shop Online // Online Shopping


If you haven't noticed yet, one of my favorite pastimes is shopping! (I blame that on my momma!) 🤣 But I particularly love online shopping. And let's just face facts, I have 3 kids, and you cant really SHOP with kids. It's like, have you ever been shopping with THREE tiny versions of yourself?!... 😳 IT IS NOT FUN!! But in all seriousness, I love being able to find exactly what I'm looking for, at an amazing price. So I have a few online stores that I really enjoy shopping at, and I thought I'd share them with you. And kinda tell you about them and just explain why I love these boutiques so much!


- Lulu's -

I found Lulu's probably about 2 years ago. They do offer some high-street trendy items, but I go there for the more classic / timeless pieces. Like my wide leg black slacks, my navy sequined cocktail dress, and my Balmain inspired blazer just to name a few. Also if I'm in need of accessories like trendy sunglasses, I know that I can get them at Lulu's for usually pretty cheap!

Black Lace Skirt

Black Sunnies

Coat, (Balmain version just for fun)


I came across Nasty Gal about 5 or 6 months ago. They are definitely more high-street focused. I've ordered some of my bodysuits, tops, and skirts from there. But the one reason I even went to their site was to get this leopard print flowy skirt! 

Skirt

Blouse

Top



The name says it all! Dirty South Vintage is a more recent discovery. Their boutique has loads of cute stuff. If you want more country vibes, they have you covered. If you want the more rebel country vibes, they have you covered! They actually sent me this awesome hat, that I wear all the time! Its perfect for me because it has a cut out on the top for me to push my bun through! Actually right now you can get this hat for free, you only pay the shipping!! That's totally awesome!!

Hat



So I have some pretty exciting news with this one! I am now an ambassador for Roma Designer Jewelry!! I KNOW RIGHT???!!! They gave me a code and everything!! 😀 But for real, I've been conversing with them for about a month now, and I'm now able to talk about it! They sent me this gorgeous 24 inch adjustable necklace! I have been wearing it nonstop since it came in. This necklace is only $29.00 right now, and if you use code KRYSTAL20 you'll get 20% off of that! And it doesn't just apply to this particular piece, it applies to everything on the site! If you do order something, please tag me on your social media posts! I love seeing all of my friends and getting to know you better!! 



I just want to thank each and every one of yall for supporting me in this amazing new adventure that I'm walking in. Thank you for following along and engaging with me! It really means the absolute world to me!! Love yall so much. And please, if you haven't yet, hit the follow button at the bottom of this post! Bye yall, see you next week!!

4 Jackets / Coats You Need In Your Collection // Fall Fashion

Good morning everyone!!  Over the past month or so, I've been slightly bragging about how nice the weather has been here. But this whole past week has really bitten me in the behind.... it's been rainy and cold all week. Seriously last year at this time we were still going to the beach. 

Fun fact; I am obsessed with jackets and coats. I dont know why, but I have always loved having a good selection of outerwear to choose from. Outerwear can elevate an outfit to the next level. It can also change the overall style of an outfit so much, that if you wear the exact same clothes while only swapping out the jacket, you can change the entire vibe of said outfit. So today I wanted to share with you some must have jackets/coats that you need in your fall collection. 

- Leather -

Or faux leather, for those of us that can't really afford the real deal, right now anyway!! 🤣 I have seriously been rocking a leather jacket since my freshman year  in high school. (And it was real leather, because my parents bought it for me! Thanks mom and dad!! 😉)!! Having a leather jacket can take you from a basic-b to bad-B in .2 seconds! 🤣 If I had to choose ONE jacket to wear for the rest of my life. It would be a black leather jacket hands down!!






- Blazers -

I feel like a good blazer can be put over just about anything. My favorite way to wear a blazer is over a t-shirt and distressed jeans. 😍 It goes from slouchy to super chic real quick! 👌🏻





- Denim -

I remember my parents always wearing denim jackets when I was a kid in the 90's, but I didn't start wearing them til I was in my early 20's. I have several that are slightly different from each other that I swap around depending on what's going to be underneath.  One, is more fitted and hits at the upper hip, I've had for about 8 years. One I borrowed from a friend and never gave it back... then added pearl embellishments to it... 🙄... sorry Mel!! 🤣 Then another one that's more loose fitting that can be worn with more bulky appeal!






- Pea Coat -

Everyone needs a more dressy coat. They are so classy and can definitely make your outfit look more expensive. If you spend a little extra money on a great coat, it will last forever. I bought this black one from Old Navy when I was in high school (again 15 years ago) and I STILL wear it every winter. 



Thanks so much for reading. I hope yall enjoyed today's post! See yall next week!!

Masquerade Nights // October Ipsy Glam Bag


Hey yall, it's that time of the month again! If you guessed the IPSY unbagging and review, then you're correct!! 🤣 I had so much fun with this months bag. The theme is "Who Said Night Time Is For Sleeping". The bag is red with an embossed masquerade mask. Which, I am slightly obsessed with masquerades! I've wanted to have one since Leonardo DiCaprio was Romeo back in 96'... 🙄... yes, I'm that old, let's move on!! 🤣 And considering that this years Winners Circle theme was Masquerade, I already had the marks! These posts are definitely my favorite,  especially when I can get Stephen on board with my nonsense! Now let's get into the products!


First up in my bag is a brightening peel from Wander Beauty. This nourishing mask has a pretty, berry-pink color that makes it so fun to apply. It’s made with antioxidant-rich ingredients like acai, goji berry, and green tea extracts that help heal, replenish, purify, and brighten dull skin. We applied it and our skin felt so smooth, hydrated, and fresh—no uncomfy tight feeling, here!




Second item in my bag, and what I was THE MOST excited about, was the TARTE Shape Tape concealer! I've just always used the NARS radiant concealer, and never really considered trying anything else. The matte-finish formula is blendable, buildable, and goes on smooth. It’s made with skin-nourishing ingredients like shea butter, mango seed butter, and licorice root extract. Shea butter intensely hydrates and helps protect your skin’s moisture barrier. Vitamin-rich mango seed butter helps condition your skin. Licorice root extract brightens up dark spots and minimizes the appearance of dark circles. I do feel like I may possibly perhaps, consider swapping... 🙄... 




The next product is an iridescent highlighter from City Color Cosmetics. Yall know that I LUUUVVV a good highlighter.  But yall also know that I am a neutral nelly!! So, where this is a fun color, it's not my jam at all. And I'm sorry but I forgot to get a swatch for yall. (SO, the first person to message me with their address, I'll send it to you!!) 




Then, I got a blending brush from SLMISSGLAM. At first I thought it was supposed to be bent, but then later I realized its NOT 😳🤣 So yeah, I dont know what happened there, but it's still a good blending brush, so it doesn't really bother me that much!!




The last item in my bag is a nail polish from Pretty Woman in the shade Dont Be Jelly. The name says it all—this baby is sassy. It’s long-wearing, crack and chip-resistant, and dries super fast. Don’t Be Jelly is a raspberry plum shade that feels so fall.





Thanks so much for reading. I hope yall enjoyed today's review! See tall next week!!
