Dear Diary

A Declaration of Love

Ah, February! Love is in the air, and I couldn’t feel more lucky to have so much of it in my life! Don’t worry though, I’m not going to be rambling on about some horrible fairytale romance story: today I’m confessing my love for some super special products!

Before I started beauty blogging, I really had a bare minimum cosmetics collections. I went shopping once a year at Sephora to restock my 5 essentials (eyeliner, mascara, blush, concealer and neutral beige shadow), and that was about it. I loved the pretty look of products, but I never really got into having fun with my beauty routine.

When I started writing for XO Vain, everything changed. Suddenly I couldn’t stop buying beauty products, and companies were actually sending me new products to try too! My cosmetics collection tripled in size over the span of a few weeks, and continues to grow almost daily.

I’ve been super lucky to try so many different products over the past few months, but a few have really stood out in my mind. They’re the products I’ve really come to rely on, to cherish; they’re the products I love!
