Hey guys! Trying something a little new and making a haul type post of some new products I got in the mail this week! I bought a few items from an online shop, Glambot, a place where you can buy and sell used makeup. Glambot is the first site/service I’ve seen that offers something like this so I thought you guys would be interested! Discounted high end makeup? Hard to find products from past collections? Yes please.
I have yet to use Glambot to sell any makeup but if you’re interested you can learn a little more about that on their site. Basically, they buy gently used makeup off you and then sanitize, clean and sell the makeup for cheaper than retail price because it’s gently used.
When purchasing anything from Glambot they specify how much product is left, the condition the product is in and they even have some new/unused products.
The items I chose are
- MAC Cream Color Base in Shell
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Peaceful
- MAC Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige
- MAC Mineralized Blush in Utterly Game
Don’t these products look good as new?!
Disclaimer: I was sent these products for review. I am not getting paid for this post.

I have a few tips with concealing acne! :)
- Press to blend, don’t rub. Pressing and patting the concealer over a blemish will give more coverage because you’re concentrating the concealer in a particular spot. Sometimes rubbing/blending the concealer out with cause the concealer to rub away and just blend into the skin.
- Use a small brush, even an eyeshadow blending brush to apply powder directly over any blemishes you just concealed. I find this method to help last any blemishes I concealed to stay concealed all day. This will add extra coverage as well as set the concealer. Sometimes if you use a big brush to set where you just concealed it can look cakey by applying too much powder to a large area but by powdering directly over the blemish youre making sure the concealer won’t go away and avoiding looking too powdery!
- Go for a long wearing concealer so it lasts all day. Anything too creamy or thin can fade away through out the day. Go for a concealer that dries to more a powder finish with a more drying formula. This will ensure it stays put on the skin. Try a concealer like Loreal True Match Crayon Concealer!
Personally I love using translucent powder to set under the eyes! It’s super silky so it never looks dry or cakey and since it’s colorless it lets my light concealer show through keeping my under eye bright. Any translucent powder will do really, they all work relatively the same. However translucent powder under the eyes can look a little ghostly in flash photography if you apply too much so I use translucent powder on more of an every day basis and not so much for special occasions.
If you don’t want to use a translucent powder try a tinted loose powder or a brightening face powder. A slightly luminous face powder works great for setting the under eyes because it keeps them bright. A powder too matte or chalky will settle into fine lines, cling onto dry spots and just overall look a cakey mess.

- NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder (slightly illuminating/brightening, make a pressed and loose version)
- Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light (pale yellow shade is brightening, slight luminous effect)
- Loreal Hydra Perfecte Light Diffusing Powder (using the translucent or one of the tinted shades)
- Wet n Wild Reserve Your Cabana (a slightly luminous, pale powder)
