💨🙅🏻🌫Pollution Cushion – Pony Effect Defense Longwear Cushion Foundation Review

Hi guys! Last week Seoul had the second worst air quality ever! My skin, throat, lungs, eyes, and nose were all congested. The air quality is a little better because of the rain today, but dust season and pollution will be here to stay in busy little Seoul. So why am I talking about air quality and pollution? It’s because I am reviewing the newest cushion from Pony Effect! The Defense Longwear Cushion was released mid-March and it was a perfect time to test this out on the high pollution days like last week.

I bought this on the Memebox app which I uncontrollably look through every hour or so. I bought it while it was on promotion and got a small discount and a free mirror (wahoo!) The retail price is 42,000KRW (about 37.00USD). The cushion comes with a refill with an extra puff. The packaging is a thinnish square compact with a prismatic silver coating.It’s very pretty under the light however, the coating is a bit thin so mine is already a little scratched up around the corners. The puff is a spongey type very squishy and flexible. I like the puff, but don’t be fooled about the amount of product it absorbs! One weak dab on the cushion and it looks like you need to dab some more, but the product is already sucked into the sponge.

Pony also released new darker shades so I jumped to get my hands on a cushion that matched my skin tone. Sand was the color I got it’s supposed to be for tanned skin *laughs* and in the tradition of Korean skin color numbers this is number 25. It’s still a half shade lighter than my natural skin tone. It has a yellowy-faintly peach undertone so if you’re on the cool dark tone side then this color, no matter how ‘dark’ it is, will not look good on you. For me, it was fine but still not a perfect match. I do appreciate the brand for looking out for darker Asian skin girls like me.

dsfgggg

There is a light herbally-floral scent which goes away after application. The formula is very thin but if you layer it on it can look like a medium coverage foundation. It covers 40% if my dark circles and 50% redness from pimples. The cushion is whitening, has wrinkle care, and is SPF 50+/PA+++. Also it has been tested on the absorption of dust onto the skin with a special Arabian Cotton complex that has large amounts of Phyto-chemical that defends the skin from outside pollutants. I really can’t tell the difference if it’s really defending my skin from dust, but it hasn’t irritated my skin so that’s a good sign. It also has lotus flower extract to revitalize tired skin.

The finish is not matte and at first, it starts with a soft satiny glow but later after 4-5 hours it drys down. The cushion isn’t very hydrating for dry skin types like myself, it felt and looked dry. This also transferred to clothing easily and settled into fine lines, so longevity was not very good. It does accentuate dry patches so exfoliating is a must if you are going to put this on! I did find some success in wetting the sponge first and it felt a bit more hydrating-ish. With this one, I have to fix it regularly or it made my skin look old.

This is 3 hours after application. It looks like the end of the day…

 

 

Overall, would I repurchase? N to the O, no! It’s was really mediocre and it’s not the best for my dry skin.  This was my first Pony Effect cushion and even thought this wasn’t a showstopper for me I wonder how the other two cushions compare. If I do purchase the other two I’ll write a comparison review!

Thank you for reading this review lemme know if you have any questions or even suggestions for future posts in the comments section!

Bonvivant Chrome Mask Review

Hi, everyone! I’m here to review the Bonvivant Orginal Chrome Mask. I bought this a month ago when it first came out and I think it’s a good time to tell you my opinion on it. First, Bonvivant is a Memebox branch and they specialize in skin masks and sheet masks. I’ve tried their Illuminator Age Cover Mask Pack and Water Lock Sleeping Pack and I enjoyed using them, So I had high hopes for this peel off type mask. Anyway, let’s get into the review!


When I bought the mask it came with the silicone spatula as a promotion. The jar contains 85ml/2.87 fl.oz. of the pearly liquid. The smell is on the strong side, slight rubbing alcohol smell lingers. I don’t mind it, but for those of you sensitive to strong smells beware. The mask is quite runny so applying a thin layer is advisable. If it’s too thick it will run down your face and also it won’t dry evenly.


A piece that dried on my hand

Applying with the spatula was easy enough, I had to use the edge to scrape off excess product and thin out the thicker layers. It takes about 20-30 mins to dry completely, but like all masks, the nose and under the lip area drys up within 5-10 mins. The peeling part is not very painful, to me at least, I’ve had worse. But if you get some of the product on your eyebrows and hairline it will pull some of the hair out. It doesn’t peel off in one piece, but still in large chunks. It rips easily, so if you want to peel it off in one piece you have to be very patient or have super peeling ninja skills. I have neither.
The effect is… not impressive. It’s cooling so I’m sure it had some effect on tightening up my pores, it wasn’t very hydrating at all, and it didn’t brighten up my skin more than a regular sheet mask would have. It did, however, make my skin feel smoother since it has a peeling factor. I don’t recommend this for sensitive skin types because the peeling will aggravate the skin and the smell might also irritate the skin.

This is my not impressed face
Overall I’d say, it’s a very pretty product and fun to see it change to chrome, but with the effort of spreading it out on the face and then having to peel it off and also possibly washing off stray bits is not the best in my opinion. I’d rather open a pouch and get #sheetfaced tbh. I think this was a gimmicky product sold on looks and not performance. it makes for great selfies, but I will not be repurchasing this~ It goes for 24,000KRW on Memebox and right now it’s on sale for 19,200KRW… I wonder why .

Nooni Snowflake Cleanser Review

Hi guys! This week flew by and we’re almost a week in of 2017. The Nooni Snowflake Cleanser is one of my first purchases this year. It’s been picked as Consumer’s Choice in the cleansing cream category on Glow Pick, a Korean beauty review website, last year for the month of June and July. I’d been eyeing it for such a long time and decided to finally purchase and try it for myself. I bought it on Memebox for 25,000KRW (120g). Let’s get into the review!

DSCF0775

The cleanser comes in a plastic jar with a pink scooper and protective lid. The cleanser reminds me of the Banila Co.’s Clean it Zero cleanser.The first four main ingredients both the Nooni cleanser and Banila Co. uses are mineral oil, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceral Triisostearate, and Polyethylene. Which are either emoilments, skin smoother, or skin conditioner. The Nooni cleansers added ingredients include shea butter, oxygen, lotus flower extract, satsuma peel extract, and kaolin (mineral clay). It does have added fragrance so beware if you have sensitive skin. The selling point of the cleanser is the Jeju oxygen water that claims to give a deep clean better than other cleansers made with regular water.

DSCF0776

The texture is like sherbert and melts instantly as it gets in contact with your skin and then turns into a cleansing oil formula, and when it gets in contact with water it turns into a milky lotion. It key features is that it removes thick makeup, purifies the pores, and removes impurities and excessive sebum. Well, I tested it and I believe it only did 70% of what it said. I was super disappointed with its cleansing power. This is a not a clean-it-all one step cleanser and double cleansing is necessary. I did as directed and I massaged for even longer the second AND third time I used it. At first after you dry your face it looks clean but I went ahead and rubbed around with a cotton pad with cleansing water on it and it picked up so much makeup! I don’t think I wear that much make up that it still left a film of makeup residue on my skin, and even if I did it claims that it removes thick makeup. Anyway, two good things about it would be that it’s not drying and it’s good at breaking the makeup down quickly.

DSCF0778

Although I am disappointed with this cleanser, I’m all for making products work somehow. I think this is a great second cleanser if you feel like you have some makeup left over from the first cleanse or using it to break down heavy makeup before doing a second cleanse. Also, another good way to use this is a clarifying massager. I think it’s a suitable cleanser in the morning if your skin feels congested.

j

This is a product that worked so well on other people and not me so I’m a bit sad. It didn’t fail completely, but because I had to test it out multiple times to check if it was doing it’s job tells me that this product is a no go. I’ll finish using it however I won’t be repurchasing it. If you’ve tried this let me know your thoughts in the comments! Thanks for reading 😁.

Pony Effect Ink Lip Stain Review

Hi guys! I’ll be reviewing the Pony Effect Ink Lip Stain. The brand has three types of tints and the ones I have are the marker type. The tint comes in a marker pen form and the applicator is felt tipped. There are 10 colors in this line and has a natural finish. It actually feels and looks like I went over my lips with a marker pen. I don’t think it looks bad but it does make my lips a little dry and the color can get patchy very quickly. It also clings to any dray patches so if you have dry lips it’s a no go. The lasting power is not bad, it dries almost instantly once you apply and doesn’t move, but it does tend to fade in the center of the lips, leaving your lips looking like an octopus 🐙 if you eat or lick your lips too much. So you have to be mindful to touch up here and then. However, I do like the colors and the application is a breeze. I can draw on and shape my lips perfectly with the felt tip. Would I recommend to you? I don’t think so, for 14,000KRW I think you can buy two cheaper and frankly better tints than this one.

I’m Stick Shadow from I’m Meme Review

Hey guys! First of all, I think I have a I’m Meme obsession. I bought three I’m Stick Shadows when I purchased the I’m Eye Shadow Palettes which are also from I’m Meme. I really love the consistency of quality in every product! Anyway, I should be their brand ambassador or something because I have nothing bad to say about their brand… okay, seriously let’s get into this review!

DSCF9808

Like I said I before I bought three stick shadows and I think that was very modest of me, because at first I grabbed all of them and dumped them into my basket. I literally was at Watsons for one hour trying to pick which ones I had to get. Life of a true beauty addict… The three colors I ended up getting were Falling Star, Cassiopeia, and Spinel. Falling star is a pearl champagne color, very similar to the Stila Kitten smudge crayon but a little less yellow gold. Cassiopeia is a deep gold with noticeable white and gold shimmer. Spinel is a grey tone purple with blue and deep pink shimmer. Originally there were 6 colors, but recently, like a month ago, they added 5 new colors to the line. They are White Swan, Bellatrix, Stella Rose, Hazel Topaz, and ES410 (Sipeka Bron). That last one I don’t know the exact Korean to English spelling. There are no matte shades, only shimmer and pearl.

DSCF9809

It cost 12,000KRW each and I got mine at that time on sale for about 9,000KRW. The eye shadow stick is about 12.5 cm long and a 1cm thick, but the actual amount of product you get is about 3 cm/1.5 g. Which isn’t bad considering the thickness and color payoff. It’s actually the same or more than you would get in a regular eye shadow pan. The stick is an auto type so there’s no sharpening involved, just rotate the bottom part of the stick.

Capture.PNG

The formula is very smooth and very pigmented. There is no drag so it’s easy on the eyelids. The shimmer and pearl shine is very high and multidimensional. It looks pretty in all different views. The shadows dry pretty quickly so working on  one eye at a time is recommended because after it sets it will not budge. I would say that these lasted for more than 8 hours close to 12 hours, I did see it bunch up in my crease a little bit after a humid day out. But the shadow on the lid did not move at all. You have to use a oil type cleanser/eye and lip remover to get these off. I’am so impressed with the colors and how well they last throughout the day. They blend easily and you can create a nice eye look using 2 colors and a black eye liner. You don’t need to use a brush, finger blending works best in my opinion.

DSCF9816

I’m so tempted to get a couple more of these in my stash… I’ll keep you posted when I do! I hope you enjoyed this review and make sure to follow me on Instagram or Facebook for daily updates and photos. Thank you for reading!

New Pony Effect Long Wear Precision Liner Review

Hey guys! It was pouring rain in Seoul yesterday, but today is sunny as can be. Monsoon season can be the worst time for makeup wearers because of the humidity and the muggy air tends to melt off out makeup especially our eyeliners. Today I’m reviewing the Pony Effect Long Wear Precision Liner. It came out in June along with the Stay Fit Matte Lip Colours which I love! Do I love the liners as much as the liquid lipsticks? Keep reading to find out more.

fdsfdf.png

There are 10 colors to choose from and I bought #Majestic Purple and #Secret Mint. Both are perfect colors for the summer season. 8 out of the 10 are matte types and the the remaining two are pearly. The packaging is sturdy, the cap clicks on well and the rotation isn’t flimsy or loose. The liners are auto type liners, so you don’t have to sharpen it. The liner ‘lead’ size is pretty small so you’ll always get a sharp line. Which is good for me because I always seem to sharpen more than necessary and I feel like a wasted so much product. One thing is that you can’t put too much pressure when you’re applying or it breaks. It’s happened twice and it’s a big loss because there’s only about 4cm of product which isn’t alot, so that’s a bit of a bummer. Even more so because of the 14,000KRW price tag… it’s so expensive for so little and it’s not even a department store brand! Dang Pony… making bank off my monies lol >_<

The formula is smooth and glides on pretty well, there isn’t much drag. I think because the soft texture it breaks easily. The pigmentation is pretty good too, going it over it twice after the first line dries gives it the best color and lasting power. It does wear for quite a while, I kind of wish I bought a dark color to see if it transfers because the colors that I bought I can’t really tell. I will say though that even after being doused in rain the liners stayed put. It’s also quite rub proof, it’s good at staying where it’s supposed to be and eve if I accidentally/intentionally rub my finger over the liner it doesn’t rub off.

SO… do I love it as much as the Stay Fit Matte Lip Colours? I’m gonna have to say no. I really don’t think these are worth it, I think if there’s a  color that you really like then go for it, but with how it breaks off so easily, amount, and the price, I’d rather pay a bit more for something more high end or pay less for similar performance results. As much as I have enjoyed Pony’s products this one was just alright. I’ll enjoy what I have left of it, but I probably won’t repurchase. If you have any questions let me know in the comments below. Be sure to follow me on either Facebook or Instagram or both! Thank you so much for reading.

Pony Effect Stayfit Matte Lip Colour Review

Hey Ohmyglossers~ I am seriously half awake as I write this… I’m so tired, but I am super excited to share this lip review with you guys! This is a new line launch from Pony Effect for the month of June and I was seriously freaking out because I love matte lipsticks and I have yet to find the perfect matte liquid lipstick in Korea. I do think that matte lips are trending in Korea so I’ll have to keep an eye for more cosmetic development in this area. Anyway, let me get on with this review before I fall asleep.

DSCF9908.JPG

Like I said this is one of the two new launches for Pony Effect in June, the other is the Longwear Precision Liners which I also purchased together. The Stayfit Matte Lip Colours have the rose gold accents just like the Conceptual Eyes Quad from Pony Effect. When I put all of my Pony Effect makeup collection together it looks really nice hehe. The colors I got were On Point and On Fleek. Great names right? On Point is a muted dark pink and On Fleek is a brown with a touch of red, almost a sepia. Both are super opaque and has a very matte finish.

dfs.png

The formula is quick drying and it applies very smoothly. Like any matte liquid lipsticks it does accentuate the lines on the lips. I found that if I rub my lips together it makes it a little worse, so I apply one lip at a time, and no blotting like I would a normal lipstick. It does have a slightly tacky texture and that might bother some people, but I don’t mind it as much. It lasts a very long time without over drying my lips. Also funnily enough, it’s very easy to take off with a tissue. It’s quite strange. The doe foot applicator does a good job of creating a clean edge and the curved shape makes it easy to apply a good dose of color on the lips.

Screen Shot 2016-06-22 at 9.29.34 PM.png

The color selection is different from your usual pink, orange, and red. There are 10 shades to choose from. When I saw the swatch for On Fleek I didn’t think twice about getting it. I’m very certain that I will purchase some more colors if they have a sale… it costs 20,000KRW each, which is pretty expensive if I compare it to a roadshop brand and it’s not that far off from some department store brand prices. But I gotta say that it’s worth it because there isn’t anything like it in Korea besides products from overseas brands like MAC, Urban Decay, etc.  I like this product a lot and I would recommend it to matte lip junkies out there and would love to see how it compares to other matte liquid lipsticks.

I’M MEME – 🌞Day to Night🌝 & 🌝Night to Day🌞 Eye Shadow Palettes Review

Hey guys~ It’s middle of another week and I’m here today with Meme! That is, I’m Meme to be exact. I have an obsession with palettes and I couldn’t walk away without buying both of the I’m Meme – I’m Eye Shadow Palettes. One is the Day to Night Palette and the other is the Night to Day Palette. Both have 10 eye shadows with 3 different finishes and you can create a multitude of looks for both day and night.

DSCF9860

 

The packaging is simple like all of the other I’m Meme products, plastic matte black exterior with the name of the product printed in glossy print on the front and magnetic closure. Inside there are two rows of 5 eyeshadows, a dual ended brush, and a built in mirror.The brush isn’t that bad, I’d give it a 6.5/10, it’s usable to an certain extent. There are 10g of product, so each shadow is 1g each, and that’s about 3,000KRW per shadow. Now the I’m Meme single shadows are 12,000KRW each for 1.4g, which I think is ridic… I’m sure it’s the same formula as the ones in these palettes, so for the single shadow you’re paying for the unnecessary packaging. Anyway, I’m just going to say, if you want to save money get the palette. However, it’s your monies, do what you wish, but hey I’m always on a budget.

dsfs

There are 3 types of eye shadow finishes in the palette so you can create a very multidimensional look. Day to Night has 4 mattes, 4 shimmers, and 2 glitters.  As for the Night to Day there are 3 mattes, 5 shimmers, and 2 glitters. The matte shades in both palettes can be used on other areas of the face for shading, blush, or filling in your eyebrows. The color selection on both are super gorgeous and both of them lean very warm on the color scale. The Day to Night is a mix of neutrals, browns, and a copper and gold shade for accents. While the Night to Day is more colorful with a mix of pinks, plums, and gold, among the light and dark neutral colors. This made it very difficult for me to choose just one, so that’s why I HAD to buy both…

kib

The formula is buttery smooth, not a lot of kickback and it’s used great either with a brush or fingers. The glitters in my opinion are better used with fingers than a brush. They last on the eyes for +8 hours without using an eye primer and it creased very little at the end of the day. The pigmentation is great except for the palest color in both the palettes. I can say that I am very pleased to have these palettes in my collection and it was so very worth it to buy both, I do use the Day to Night palette more.

Here are the color profiles!

Day to Night

Every Day- matte cream white with slight yellow undertone

Picnic Day- matte muted peach

Special Day-glitter yellow gold, not much color than just the gold glitter

Moody Day- shimmer deep bronze with pink undertone

Natural Day-matte warm taupe

NEW Pony Effect Conceptual Eyes Quad Review

Hey guys! I’m here with a new review for you today and it’s the new Pony Effect Conceptual Eyes Quad from Korean makeup artist, Pony! She’s been releasing a lot of new stuff for the Pony Effect makeup line since the end of 2015. I bought one her collab eye shadow palettes with Memebox and the quality was great, so I had high hopes when I bought the two quads that were released this week. The Pony Effect line is distributed under Memebox Inc. so I don’t think the quality will be any less than what they have produced earlier.
There are 6 Conceptual eye quads to choose from #Innocence, #Lively, #Be Romantic, #So Gorgeous, #Eternal Seduction, and #Am Brown. All the color combinations were so pretty I had such a hard time picking out only two. Each quad is 32,000KRW which is a little pricy compared to the Memebox eyeshadow collabs she done. Oh well, there are people like me who are willing to pay hahahaha. If you do the math each 1.5g shadow is worth 8 dollars, but that’s not factoring the cost of the packaging etc. Also, if I compare it to the I’m Meme single eyeshadows that are 1.4g that costs 12,000KRW then buying the quad would be cheaper, so my point is that the quads are not a badly priced. Phew, got that out of the way.

DSCF9563.JPG

Let’s talk about packaging! The shadows come in a rose gold palette with a enamel blue top with the logo in the center printed in rose gold as well. I thought it would have some weight but actually when I got them it’s like a rose gold plated plastic. In my opinion it doesn’t have that ‘luxury’ feel to it, but then again it’s lightweight and you won’t feel too bad about deporting them if you’re into doing that. The eye shadows are trapezoid shaped to form the zig zag lightening logo through the center, clever branding I say. Also it has a magnetic closure and a built in mirror.

sedf.png

a7939dcc-c3c1-46fb-bc7d-83fdd6717b10

All the quads have one or more shimmer shade. All except #Innocence have at least one matte shade. #Am Brown and #Be Romantic quads don’t have a glitter shade. I think there is a good variety among the palettes in color but also texture and finishes. Most all quads lean toward the warmer spectrum, #Eternal Seduction could be a neutral cool palette. The pigments in the two palette are good the glitter is easier to use with your finger, while the shimmer and matte ones you can pick up a lot of color with a brush. All of them blend very easily and there isn’t a lot of powder kickback. The eye shadows are long wearing and doesn’t fade or fallout while wearing it throughout the day. All of the eye shadows in the palettes are super smooth and silky to the touch. I really want to buy all 6! I really think I should have taken advantage of the 1+1 deal they had on Memebox on their launching day, but oh well. Anyway, here are the color profiles for the two palettes I purchased.

DSCF9570.JPG

#Be Romantic

Love Me- warm peach gold shimmer highlight shade, it might seem a little too deep as a highlight, just use very sparingly near the brow bone and intensify as you comedown to the crease.

Roses- matte peach with medium depth, it’s for sure not a light peach it’s quite warm nearing orange. It’s a great transition color with Doom.

Moment- copper bronze shimmer.Transitions well with Love Me

Doom- Deepest shade of the four. Matte dry rose pink mauve.

DSCF9571.JPG

#Lively

Jolly-highlight shade,  gold beige shimmer

Passion- tangerine orange with yellow gold reflects, point color can be used as a transition color or all over the lid for a colourful look.

Better-glitter bronze with gold and pink micro flecks. Pretty when applied over the other colors and in the inner corners.

Cheerful- Deepest shade of the four. matte light terracotta brown

I hope that you guys can get a hand on these quads! Thanks for reading my reviews always!

Also I’m doing a 1 year blogaversary giveaway on my Instagram, so don’t miss out! Check out @ohmyglossblog and look for the giveaway picture!

Korean Contour Sticks: Memebox vs. Etude House Review & Comparison

Hey guys!

In my previous post I talked about how contour and strobing sticks were trending in the beauty world in Korea. I listed three Korean brands W.Lab, Memebox, and Etude House. I really wanted to try these out and compare them, so I bought the Memebox I’m Multi Sticks and the Etude House Play 101 Sticks. I didn’t purchase the W.Lab one because I didn’t want to order it online, even though I got the Memebox ones off their app. Another reason is because Pony Makeup was the ‘advocate’, if you will, of these Etude House play sticks and she had collaborated and worked with Memebox products, so I thought it would be a good to compare the two. I’ll do a general review of the two then the comparison at the end.

collage

I bought the Memebox as a set of three that includes the foundation stick, highlighting stick, and the contouring stick. For all three with a free mesh makeup bag was 48,000KRW. Each stick costs 16,000KRW of 10g so there wasn’t a discounted price deal for buying three just a free gift. The packaging is a matte black twist tube with a sturdy lid, its the kind of matte black where you can see your finger prints. The foundation comes in two colors #ST01 Luster Light (21) and #ST02 Luster Medium (23), I got the Luster Medium  and it a tad lighter than my skin tone, which I don’t mind that much. The coverage is light to medium and dries to a satin finish. There is only one shade of contour and highlight, #ST20 Luster Bronzing and #ST25 Luster Beam. Contour color is on the warm side and has a satin finish. The highlighter is a pink base shimmer with a satin finish. The texture and application of all three is very creamy and smooth. It doesn’t feel sticky and blends nicely with a brush or a blending sponge.

df

The Etude Play 101 Stick did have foundation sticks but I just bought the shading color  11 and highlight color in 10. They also have a Play 101 Contour Duo stick but for comparison sake I bought the big chubby one, each costs 12,000KRW for 7.5g. The packaging is a standard plastic body with a lid and you twist at the bottom of the stick to bring the product up. The contour color is a light tan color and the texture is creamy, smooth and has a satin finish. The Highlighting is a light golden beige color and the texture is a little powdery and has satin finish.

dfdf

I’ll start with the contouring sticks. The colors are very different, the Memebox one is much deeper and the Etude House one is very light compared to that one. I couldn’t call the play stick much of a contour color, but more of a transitioning contour color. It could be a good base shade before going in with a deeper contour shade like the one from Memebox. Also, the formulation of the play stick is very creamy so it blends well, but because of the lack of pigmentation it blends in with my foundation and my skin tone. So unless you’re on the light to fair this contour will not make a very dramatic difference in creating a contoured face.

DSCF8687
Memebox Lust bronzing and Luster Beam on the left. Etude House Play 101 Stick #11 and #10 on the right. 

The highlighting sticks are both very good. The only difference is that the Memebox one is more sheer and subtle while the Etude House Play 101 Stick is more high shimmer. In the case of the highlighters the Memebox Luster beam would make a good base and on top I would go over it with the #10 Play 101 Stick. I do prefer the Memebox highlighting stick formulation more because no matter how many times I rub back and forth, it doesn’t bunch up. With the Etude house it’s a bit powdery and if I do put it over some parts it doesn’t spread out evenly and sticks together. I can’t really say one is better than the other, but I do like the Memebox ones more personally because of the texture and formula.

Thanks for reading this long post! I always hope that my posts are helpful and informative. Please leave a comment if you have any questions and follow me on Instagram @ohmyglossblog and Facebook /ohmyglossblog.
