BEAUTY DIARIES: HollyHoux

(Los Angeles, CA.) – A new skincare brand has stepped upon the beauty scene and is sure to be rolling off of the tongues of beauty fans everywhere!  Who might you ask? Introducing HollyHoux, (pronounced “Holly-Who”), that’s who! 

The debut of this new luxe skincare line is something that every woman will want to have in their beauty cache and on their vanity tables!  Colorfully packaged to appeal to women of all ages and backgrounds (teens and adults from Main Street to Park Ave.), with many items in the collection meeting ‘better beauty’ standards of being Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten and Cruelty-free. ‘Sustainable Beauty’, offering you clean conscious skincare!   Retailing in as $25, HollyHoux brings to the beauty round table everything from scented masks, cleansers, toners, scintillating mists and their “out of the gate” best seller, the revolutionary “Cool Liquid Cushion”, flawless skin pact makeup setter!

Hydrating, refreshing and cool to the touch, the “Cool Liquid Cushion” is ideal for every skin type and with “one tap”, women will instantly see a reduction in the appearance of pore size and the elimination of that greasy shine on their first application!  Through the use of an innovative “water powder” and the combination of 16 types of herbs, the “Cool Liquid Cushion” does exactly what its name implies; it’s cool to the touch, soothes as it’s applied and provides a soft thin layer of protection giving you the appearance of flawless skin without and that heavy, powdery feel, basically you don’t feel like your face has been caked with product — which is always a good sign!

Founder and owner, Jennie Kim, a seasoned veteran of the fashion industry, says. “The Cool Liquid Cushion concept was born out of my search for a ‘makeup setter’ that would simultaneously conceal and moisturize my skin, living in sun kissed California.”

I live in New England, which is the complete opposite of the west coast. But we like to keep our skin moist, too, especially during the harsh winters.

Formulated with key ingredients extracts such as Borago Officinalis, Anthemis Nobilis flower, Rosehip oil, Menthol, Peppermint and Chamomilla Recutita extract, it took over a year of research and testing before she found the exact outcome she’d been looking for!

HollyHoux also has product sets that every beauty savvy customers will want to get their hands on just in time for the holidays with their cute assorted (and refillable) “Refresher Mist” set!

BEAUTY REVIEW: Make the Cut by Essie

Hello, (A)pril-listers and WELCOME to my new domain (theaprildiaries.blog!) I’m proud to say that after almost two whole years, my blog is finally its own site! To celebrate, I’m also adding a beauty section to this lifestyle/fashion blog! So, I am promoting a recent purchase of mine: Essie Nail Polish!

I have so many nail polishes, but I never really paid particular attention to the brand. I recently purchased Essie: Gel Couture Make the Cut. And to my surprise, it has been staying on! No chips or anything! WOO! That’s always my main concern when putting on nail polish: will it chip? But it’s been three days, and so far, no chips! To find more shades, click here.

This shade, in particular, is a “pearlized nude greige” and is a very neutral color that goes with anything you wear! Did I mention it also dries fast?

Essie is an iconic brand founded by Essie Weingarten in 1981. Ask any celebrity or beauty professional (if you know one) and they’ll tell you that they stick true to this brand.

Let me know if you’d like to see any of the other beauty products I use on a daily basis, that way my beauty page can really grow and I can share it with all of you!

THE FASHION DIARIES: Met Gala 2018

I never really quite grasped the purpose of the Met Gala. But from what I know and understand, it’s one of fashion’s biggest nights! This year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

I actually remember in my freshman year of high school when wearing crosses, in any way shape or form, were one of the biggest trends. I remember walking into a Forever 21 store and finding a section dedicated to lace, pastels, and crosses. I’m not going to lie, I thought it was a cute trend and the theme was very creative. But I can see why people were getting upset. It’s all about seeing both sides of the situations, after all. Yes, I actually learned something from Public Speaking.

So, without further ado, here are my top 10 favorite looks from the 2018 Met Gala!
