Elise Sabak: The Beauty Breakdown

If you're as addicted to beauty as I am, we're going to be great friends.

So, I spent most of my father’s day outside and with my unbelievably pale skin, it was only natural that I burned a little. So yesterday when my Vox Box arrived, I was so glad to see the after sun lotion which didn’t smell as strange as I expected and was quite soothing. The nail polish also looks great. I like Sinful Colors because it is a good formula for the price. I was SO worried about the color but it looks nice on my light skin. I have yet to try the Covergirl mascara but I’m hopeful it will be amazing!

April Birchbox

Elise Sabak Birchbox


Anastasia brow gel and minty shampoo? Birchbox, you know me.

Uni Vox Box

I recently received this Uni Vox Box from Influenster. It was packed with all kinds of interesting things, my favorite, of course, being the beauty products. The Rimmel Matte foundation has been amazing! I’m wearing it as we speak! I certainly recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive but great quality matte foundation. The NYC lipstick was interesting. That isn’t a brand I usually buy, but the pigment and staying power was impressive. It was difficult to remove though.

Skincare Stickers? Yes.

I’m reluctant to try out there products. I love testing varieties of new skin care products, but the idea of stickers really freaked me out. I ordered these from a Korean beauty site. After asking around, reading reviews, and a lot of thought, I decided to give them a try.


So the magical day came when the stickers arrived. All you do is apply them to any blemishes. At first, I didn’t think they were helping much, but eventually (after a week or so) I did notice a bit of a change. Maybe it’s just because these kept me from picking at my face (yeah, gross, I know). Also, they remain adhered all day or night. Another plus? They’re practically invisible. I wore them to my eyebrow appointment and the tech had no idea.


Overall, I like them. I want to give them more time to see if they actually help improve spots over time.


Have you ever tried these? Do you have a spot treatment you love?

April Ipsy Bag

I was so happy to see the best eyeliner EVER in my April Ipsy bag! Urban Decay eye pencils are so velvety. The “white gold” pot is interesting. It’s ultra shimmery but worked so well as a base for my eyeshadow.
