***Bougie Brie's Monthly Best in Beauty***May Edition***

May Edition TOP 5 Bougie Brie’s Monthly BEST IN BEAUTY
  • ·         Pixi by Petra Glowtonic – Although this isn’t my most favorite glycolic acid toner, it is very effective and quite affordable. I was initially introduced to this product by Nikkie Tutorials. It creates a noticeable difference in appearance, texture, and skin tone eveness.

  • ·         Karity Unicorn Eyeshadow Palette – Surprised, right? This palette didn’t receive the best reviews, but for an affordable palette, it did me quite well. I created several looks, that I posted on IG and FB and they receive tons of comments. I really enjoyed this palette, especially paired with….

You’re thinking, “Who the hell wants to smell like vinegar?” but you really don’t if you continue to shower with something scented like….

  • ·         Soap & Glory Scrub of Your Life – Scented with Soap & Glory’s Original Pink fragrance, this smoothing body buffer removes layers of dead skin cells through gentle exfoliation. A little goes a long way, and the scrubbing beads are not alarming large or difficult to rinse. Definitely one of my favorites.
