It’s cooled down a bit in Kansas City, which is awesome. I’ve haven’t been feeling the best this week, but I’ve still been testing out some wonderful products!
This week I am loving a serum that mattifies my face, some new potent anti-aging products and a fun matte liquid lipstick:
Tu’el ABSORB Mattifying Serum ($48 USD) — Get real deal oil control and a shine-free face with Absorb. Powered by natural plant extracts of burnet, cinnamon, ginger and green tea to control oil, inhibit breakouts and leave your skin looking fresh and matte all day while Sodium Hyaluronate locks in hydration. Give yourself glow without the shine.
What I think: it’s not as hot here as it’s been. But it still is very humid. So my face gets oily fast. I apply this on clean skin and put my moisturizer over it. It helps keep my skin matte all day. It’s sinks right into my skin and I really love that it doesn’t leave it slick like a lot of serums do.

Meaningful Beauty Environmental Protecting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen – ($65 USD) — Today, the blue light emitted by our phones, TVs and computer screens, and pollution are all sources of environmentally induced skin damage that can be just as harmful as the sun’s rays.This new multi-tasking moisturizer helps reduce damage and premature aging with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Meaningful Beauty Overnight Retinol Repairing Créme – ($68 USD) — Renew and repair skin while you sleep with this intensely hydrating overnight moisturizer that features retinol, and hexapeptide-9 to help decrease the appearance of fine lines and improve the firmness of skin.
What I think: these are both new to the line. I love the SPF moisturizer because it helps with environmental pollutants. I love having my skin protected when I go outside. It feels nice and light on the skin, too.
I think retinol is so important for aging skin. The night cream sinks right into the skin, and in the morning my skin is smooth and glowing. I like to use intense anti-aging products at night, so my skin can be repaired while I sleep. This is a great option!
Purchase at select ULTA stores/Ulta.com
Wet’n Wild Lipsticks Matte Liquid Catsuit ($4.99 USD) — What glides on like butter, feels like a second skin and won’t budge? Our Catsuit Matte Lipstick. Made with glammed out superpowers, it goes on glossy yet transforms into a high-pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power. Read our lips: This color is going nowhere.
What I think: this was kind of an impulse buy. I have seen reviews online and when I visited Walgreens I went looking for it. I chose the color RebelRose. I like the color, but it’s a little dark for me. The formula goes on smoothly, but it is a bit drying on my lips. I have a lip primer that I’m going to use under it. I recommend this for those who love matte liquid lipsticks. It’s affordable and it comes in a really pretty array of colors. And I really like the packaging too!
Purchase at Walgreens and other mass market retailers.
