I’ve decided to try out BALO this month and see how it goes. What the heck is BALO? Great question! It’s blog a lot October. It actually started with a YouTuber named Luke Conard who started VALA (vlog a lot August) and now he’s doing VALO for October. Since I don’t really vlog, I thought I’d try blogging style. The goal is to blog everyday in October.
Now that that’s out of the way, I thought I’d mention that I do still have more plans for this blog and thanks to Colin I am making progress. He helped me build a lightbox to take photos in. I’m still adjusting everything, but now I have a place to take better photos and I’m so excited. I have a few posts planned as well so hopefully those will come in BALO!
Now on to a quick product pick. I have been loving my Guerlain Meteorites Pearls lately. This is in the shade 02 and I also have shade 1. I picked up the holiday pearls, but the lady put the wrong ones in my bag so I have to go get the right ones. I was SO bummed when I got home!
These are really, really cool. I wasn’t sure what the hype was all about as every time I swatched them in the store, they seemed to be a glittery mess. Then after seeing positive review after positive review, I totally just caved and picked up a jar. These little things are ah-mazing! The different colors are meant to do different things like illuminate, neutralize, etc. 02 really brightens my face & is not sparkle-tastic at all. 01 really evens out my skin. You can wear them alone, over powder or over foundation. It’s recommended if you have oily skin to wear over setting powder. I’ve worn it both and it seems fine either way. Addicted. As an added bonus, though expensive, even with regular use these should last around 1-2 years depending on how much you use. Available at Sephora, Saks & Nordstrom.
