Personal Style | Chronicles of the disco pants

Hey everyone!!
Happy sunday... hope you're having a nice and relaxing day? i know i am. :-) 

These lil ol pants dress make every top look dressy.

At this point i'm probably known as the disco pants girl in hamilton. i went house hunting last weekend, i left in such a hurry that the only pants i had with me were my disco pants.
But last weekend made me fall in love with them.

And up close, it has little sparkles.

If you don't already own a pair, i don't know what you're waiting for.

American apparel own them but some other stores like new look sell similar products.

Thanks for stopping by

PRODUCT REVIEW | CC cream by smash box

Hey lovelies!!

As promised here’s the ONLY coverage product I had on my face in my previous post. It’s Smash Box’s cc cream. I love this!! I’ve been using this all summer now and I adore this product, it has SPF 30, antioxidants, peptides and it’s great for skin. In the summer, I opt for natural looking products, this cream leaves my skin looking glowing, clear, and healthy. It has a light medium coverage and it wears well throughout the day. I wear it to work and it last an 8 hour shift. I have the same glow all day, so it doesn’t get oily (I use milk of magnesia on my t-zone before applying it), it doesn’t get dull, it’s just the glow. You don't need to prime before using this as it is somewhat of a primer itself, it’s a moisturizer too and it “helps get rid of black spots and acne marks”. I don’t trust all the claims they make and so I moisturize my face before using this cream.

What's on the back:
"It's our ultimate complexion correction (cc) cream! Reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone with this tinted cream while you prime, perfect, protect, hydrate and help remove excess surface oil- all in one step. Wear alone or under foundation for more coverage.
Apply before sun exposure"

The downside to this product is the price. I had no idea how much it was before I got to the counter of I’m pretty sure I won’t have gotten it. It cost a whopping sum of $42 + TAX. But now that I have used this product, I think it’d be my staple. I don’t need foundation or concealer with it so it works out okay. I got it in dark so it's a little dark for me but it has a nice tan look to it so it's not too bad

If you don’t like a glow, you can set it with loose or pressed powder.

I think I got it all covered. If I encounter any cons somewhere along the line, I’d keep you informed. So far, it hasn’t caused any breakouts or any skin issues. 
My Skin loves it.
