Renee Cosmetics is a cruelty-free indie brand that just launched in July. At the moment, they have only highlighters but I've been told that there are new things coming soon😉 I am absolutely in love with Renee Cosmetics! Their highlighters are probably my favorites of all time. They have 7 highlighters right now, Poppin', Glo' Up, Bronzed, Baby Girl, Goals, Suspect, & Poison. The formula of these is amazing! They are definitely a mix between a powder and a mousse...they remind me a lot of ColourPop's formula. They are SUPER pigmented which leads to my only complaint. A few of these do tend to have a little bit of fall out. I'd say Glo' Up and Goals have the worst fall out of them all. It isn't like a crazy amount of fall out but there definitely is some there. All of these shades are stunning as highlighters OR eyeshadows...I definitely use them both ways! The shade Poppin' is honestly my favorite highlight of all time. It is just such a pretty golden highlight and it gives you the most beautiful glow EVER. The other shades are stunning as well but Poppin' is everything. I literally hit pan on it 3 weeks after I got it🙈
These highlighters retail for $15.00 each or $37.50 for their bundle deals which come with 3 highlighters.
Thank you so so so so much to Renee Cosmetics for sending me these beautiful highlighters. I am so happy and honored that I was one of the first to try your amazing products. I honestly cannot say enough good things about them💋

I received the new Glamlite PRO about 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I've always loved my regular Glamlite but this new PRO light is crazy amazing! The first pic is just with my chandelier light on and a little bit of daylight and the second pic was taken with my Glamlite PRO only. I didn't use my big ring light or anything...this is just the Glamlite on its own. The regular Glamlite is $29.99 and comes in 6 colors...White, Black, Pink, Blue, Orange, & Green. (I have the blue one😉)
The PRO is $37.99 and comes in Black and White.
I do love the standard Glamlite but I definitely prefer the PRO. It's about 3x brighter than the standard, and it's only $8.00 more. In case you don't know anything about Glamlite, let me tell you some things about them
The Glamlite is a little ring light that plugs into the headphone jack of your phone/tablet.
It is compatible with all iPhones, Androids, & Windows phones!
The standard Glamlite has 3 levels of brightness and you can adjust it with the little switches on the sides. One switch is the On/Off switch, and the other is to adjust the level of brightness.
Both of the Glamlites come with a cord that you plug the light into and then plug that cord into any USB port. The battery life is pretty good on these as well. I can usually get about 3-4 uses before it dies. I don't notice the PRO getting dimmer as it starts to die but the standard does start to get a lot dimmer so you know when it needs to be charged. They definitely do not take a long time to charge either...it probably only takes about 45 minutes for it to be fully charged and ready to use again!
The PRO is definitely bigger than the standard Glamlite but it is still very compact so if you need to throw it in your purse if you are going out and need it for low-light situations, you'll be good to just throw it in there. There are 4 levels of brightness on the PRO and for that one, there is only one button. You hold it down to turn it off and on and just click it to adjust the brightness.
I think both Glamlites are amazing but I definitely like the PRO more than the standard!
I also just want to say thank you to Glamlite for sending me their new light to review. I definitely recommend them if you're looking for something that will give you the perfect light in low-light situations!
I won some of Evoke Ave's products in a giveaway so I thought why not do a review on them?! I won their Super Matte Lip Gloss set and their Shimmer Sticks set.
Lets talk about the liquid lips first. There are four liquid lipsticks in the set and it is $14.00. The colors that you get are gorgeous but the formula of these is definitely not my favorite thing ever. The consistency is very liquidy at first (obviously) and it dries down to a VERY matte finish and when I say VERY matte I mean you can immediately feel it suck the moisture out of your lips...even after scrubbing my lips super hard and moisturizing heavily it still was very drying and kind of uncomfortable to wear. It's very strange because it's usually the other way around but the lighter colors seem to be a bit more patchy than the dark colors. The two lighter pinky nude shades are definitely a bit patchy on me but I don't really notice that much patchiness with the dark colors which I like because dark colors are usually the patchy colors. These are completely kiss proof and they are very hard to smudge but they do come off pretty easily after eating and drinking. If you have normal lips that aren't already dry and cracked, I definitely think these would work better for you but I just don't know if I can keep wearing them because my lips are already very dry so these just end up looking cakey and gross on my lips after about 30 minutes. I'm still going to try them out for the next week or so and see if there is anyway I can get these to work for me but at this point I don't think there is very much hope for them working on my lips. Again, the colors are STUNNING but I personally just don't think my lips can handle the formula and how drying it is.
Now on to the highlighters!
These are the most bomb cream highlighters I've ever tried! They are super pigmented and very creamy and easy to apply. They also blend out amazingly! I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for something that is super simple but gives you an amazing glow! Their Shimmer Stick set is $14.00 and you get 3 highlighters. You get a gold, a pearlescent color, and more of a bronze color. They are gorgeous and I literally have no complaints with their highlighters!
If you didn't know already, Devinah is one of my favorite brands EVER. Their eyeshadows are so creamy and pigmented and almost all of their shimmery shades that I have are pretty metallic which I love. They have some pretty amazing and unique shades also! Devinah is a cruelty free brand and they are also VERY affordable. They hand press their shadows and highlighters into magnetic pans that you can just pop into any magnetic palette like a Z Palette. Another very cool thing about Devinah is they just came out with different sized pans for shadows and highlights and you can choose what size you want! The shadow pan sizes are: 26mm, 36mm, 44mm, & 57mm. The highlighter sizes are: 36mm, 44mm, & 57mm.

I absolutely love this brand and I definitely recommend Devinah to anyone looking for an amazing quality yet very affordable brand!
