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.


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?

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

I had fallen back into my lazy skincare routine of just using face wipes to remove my makeup, or even worse, falling asleep with it on. Although face wipes are a good quick fix, they didn’t give me that I-just-had-a-facial type of clean. This completely changed when my sisters bought me a Clarisonic Mia 2 for my birthday!

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

All of a sudden, I had smoother, softer, more toned skin with smaller pores and fewer blackheads. And I’ve only been using it for a few weeks now! Watch my video review and make sure to add this to your holiday wish-list if you haven’t already.

  • Interchangeable brush heads (some meant for different skin types and purposes, or simply replacements)
  • 2 Year Warranty
