Origins Haul – CC Cream and Everyday Lipstick

I purchased these items from Origins, and they’ve become beauty staples!

Origins CC Cream and Liptint Rain and Shine

Watch my video to see what I use, why I love it, the difference between CC Creams and BB Creams, and a great lip color for everyday.

ORIGINS HAUL – CC CREAM AND EVERYDAY LIPSTICK

Although I liked the Garnier BB Cream I previously did a review on, I found that I favored this CC Cream. I liked that I still got the ease of applying multiple solutions (SPF, color, moisture, pore minimizer, etc.) with one swipe and that it’s more natural for my skin. It works for all skin types, and comes in Light/Medium (what I used) and Medium/Deep shades. It’s one product that I can use as I’m transitioning from hot to cold seasons, without having to worry about too much/too little coverage or needing a “tanner” skin base.

The only downside is that of course Origins is more expensive than drugstore brands, but I feel it’s better quality and a little goes a long way. The lipstick as I mentioned is AWESOME, especially since I am usually a gloss girl. This line is not heavy or sticky, and is really moisturizing. It actually has shea butter and grapeseed oil to hydrate.

The products also smell great, with the CC Cream having the signature Origins spa-like scent, and the lipstick having a minty scent and flavor.

Have you tried CC Cream? What do you wear on your lips everyday?

Outfit of the Day 4: Aztec, Arrows and Booties

The Aztec print is still going strong, especially during this cold season. I like it best when mixed in heavy knits, and fell in love with this aztec and arrow knitted long cardigan from my new favorite shopping site, Tobi. Aztec Print Cardigan Tobi and beyond the rack aztec bauble necklace

I love the mix of neon in the sweater, and it paired perfect with one of my favorite necklaces from Beyond the Rack. The triangle stones follow the same lines you find in aztec or arrow prints.

Style Trials Outift of the Day - Aztec Print Cardigan Tobi and CWonder Booties OOTD

Beauty blogger 101 – put makeup on BEFORE the pic! (oops)

I paired the look with a high top knot bun hairstyle, wrapped a cute gold hair tie around the base, and simple makeup (when I eventually put it on, lol). I kept the jewelry and rest of the outfit simple since the necklace is a statement piece, the cardigan has a bold print, and there are gold buckles on the shoes.
