Noto Cream vs Better Skin Mirakle Cream (Review and Thoughts)

**any links found within this blog post are NON-AFFILIATED.**

That’s my face with no makeup. I have some blemishes, uneven skin tone, and pores that I worry about on an almost-nightly basis. I use my skincare routine as a way to target the problems I have and hope that with time, it’ll resolve. For reference, I typically have combo/oily skin, acne prone, large pores, and that’s it.

Rire Lip Powder Swatches + Review

  • How to Make Money with Brush and Powder

    Long time, no post! School has been keeping me quite busy, and with my new job and internship, life has been even busier.

    On a related note, my love for K-beauty has gotten deeper. But with my lack of funds (I haven’t been paid yet! T-3 days until my first paycheck! Woohoo!), it’s been hard getting around to even stocking up on backups of my favorite skincare products. But now, there’s a new option! Crystal from Brush and Powder reached out to me to let you all know, there’s now a way for you to enjoy K-beauty and make profit!
