Small Talk: YesStylists’ Black Friday Beauty Picks
Aside from working very hard (as always), the YesStylists love to get together for a good sharing session. As the year is coming close to an end, we have to discuss our game plans for the BIGGEST shopping event of the year – Black Friday!
We all have stuff we’re dying to try or itching to re-purchase, and the sale season is perfect for finding the best deals! Read on to see our Black Friday beauty picks!
Zoe: Hey guys~ it’s finally November! My favorite month of the year! Do you know why? 🤩
Dianne: Your bday?
Zoe: Yaaaaaaasssss 😂 But also BLACK FRIDAY sales!
Dianne: Major regrets follow soon after 😂
Products We Love and Want to Stock Up On
Dianne: I’ve been scouring products I DEFO NEED because:
Dianne: I NEED THAT BLACK FRIDAY DISCOUNT Y’ALL.
Zoe: What have you got?
Dianne: I want to stock up on Troiareuke’s Healing Cocktail Ampoule!
Zoe: LOL again?!
Romy: Ooooh Troiareuke ❤️
Dianne: YES GIRL! A major throwback to our very first Small Talk in January this year! I think I’ve gone through over 4 bottles so far, and I’m not gonna shut up about it! The only thing is that it’s incredibly pricey and wo mei you qian XD
Maureen: Yeah, I also tried 2 bottles and stopped coz no $$$.
Sarah: Wait. How is this product related to cocktails? 😂
Dianne: Sarah, you basically mix an ampoule with a toner, and then shake it! It leaves skin lookin’ hella fine!!
Romy: I remember trying that. If it wasn’t pricey, I’d get a ton of it too!
Sarah: Oh dang, I wanna try too 😮
Maureen: The red one worked really well on my mature skin 🥰
In fact, I also have SKIN&LAB’s Red Serum on my wish list since red is the color to go for during X’mas 🤘
Dianne: Oooh, wasn’t it in last year’s Advent Calendar?
Maureen: Yes, it was! I also did a review on it. It’s incredibly soothing for dry skin and smooths wrinkles! Makes me look 2 years younger~
Romy:Nice pick! I’ve also tried that serum and it’s amazing!
I also chose something from SKIN&LAB on my wish list this year…
The Pink Clay Facial Mask.. Have any of you tried it?
Zoe: OMG me!
Maureen:The one with calamine in it? How did you find it?
Romy: I love love love this mask. Yes, it’s the one with calamine in it, and it’s really soothing, especially for sensitive skin. Really hydrating and also gives a good deep cleanse.
It’s the perfect mask to add to a winter skin care routine, and I need it ASAP!
Michelle: I feel like there’s gonna be so many new additions to my shopping cart after this convo 😂
Sarah: Yes! I’m getting #educated
Maureen: Michelle, what’s on your list right now?
Michelle: I have my sights set on a VDL lipstick…
Sarah: Omg it comes in 27 colors??
Michelle: There’s like 7 different shades of red.
Romy: Wow 27 shades! Which shade is on your list?
Sarah:I’d have the hardest time choosing just one shade LOL. Indecisive Libra problems.
Michelle: Sagittarius impulsiveness means I’ll just go for whatever shade I feel like on the day.
Sarah: So how many do you have in your collection? 🙈
Michelle: Lol… there’s no “collection” 😅 Just the one I was given on my bday last year.
Dianne: How’s the formula? I’m always worried with red lippies that it’ll stain 😣
Michelle: It’s super matte, which is basically all I want from a lippy.
Dianne: How about our other Sag? What are you getting?
Zoe: I’ve been eyeing up this epic set!
Maureen:A whole set? Greedy 😈
Dianne: Don’t you already have a bunch of stuff from SIORIS?
Romy: Woah, I didn’t know they had a set! I’ve wanted to try SIORIS ever since your review 😍
Zoe: Yeah, this is the exact set I had before! But it got lost on my stupid Italy trip and I’ve been too poor to re-invest since. Romy, they also have another set that’s more refreshing! !
Romy: Omg the temptation!
Sarah: What’s your favorite product from the set?
Zoe: That’s hard 😂 I loved it as a routine! But if I really had to choose, the night cream is a must-have for dry skin~
Sarah Girl yus! The Zero Velvet Tint from that Anne of Green Gables collection was my FAVORITE.
Zoe: So lemme guess, is it in your cart right now? #WorkingMyMysticPowers
Maureen:Which shade would you go for, Sarah?
Sarah: I’m planning on stocking up on their F/W shades! They’ve got these gorgeous orange browns and I love how long-lasting and non-drying the formula is too~
Products We Want to Try
Maureen: Talking about fall, I’ve always wanted to get more non-drying makeup for my dry skin. Any recommendations?
Sarah: Ooh I’ve actually been eyeing up the piciberry Berrybalm! It’s a 3-in-1 product for eyes, lips and cheeks, and it’s supposed to be super moisturizing!
Dianne: #Kindredspirits! I had my eye on this as well!
Maureen:Sounds great for lazy people like me!!
Dianne: I love its minimal packaging! Which shade are you planning to get? 😉
Romy: That’s such a cute multi-purpose product! You should just get all 7 colors 🤩
Sarah: Considering being bold and trying out tangerine or purple… but I’ll probably be boring and stick to pink LOL.
Dianne: MORE IS MORE!!! GET DEM COLORS GYAL!
Dianne: Y’all know me! I love extra thangs esp makeup! That’s why I’ve had my eye on the EYECROWN Hard Carry Shield mascara from MAKEheal!
Zoe: That packaging is SO you!
Michelle: I would get this for the packaging alone.
Maureen: CUTE CROWN!!
Dianne: I finish a mascara within like 2 months, so I wanna try EVERYTHING in their mascara line. I can’t leave my house without mascara. This is literally me:
Sarah: Is this product the secret to your always amazing eyelashes?
Dianne:Sarah thanks!!!!! The crown can be detached and it hides a little lash comb! We love a multi-tasking product.
Romy: No wonder your lashes are always on point 👌 Is the mascara waterproof?
Dianne: Yes, it totes is! But tbh I’m looking forward to the packaging the most 😂 coz I’m a queen LOL.
Maureen: Would it be hard to remove tho?
Dianne: Probs. Usually waterproof makeup is hella hard to remove! Gotta double, NO, triple cleanse 😂
Maureen: I’ve been using cleansing oil all my life, but I’m thinking of switching to a cleansing balm. I have BANILA CO’s Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm on my wish list. Has anyone tried it?
Romy: I haven’t but I want to try it out too! I prefer balms over cleansing oils.
Zoe: I’ve tried it before! It’s gentle but does the job! I really like the scent too!!
Maureen: Zoe, did you have to triple cleanse?
Zoe: I had to, especially if I was wearing heavier makeup! But since you don’t wear a lot of makeup, it should be quicker~
Maureen:I hope it won’t strip my skin of moisture, coz I also have difficulty finding the right moisturizer.
Romy: You could try misting with a facial mist to give your skin a boost of moisture!
I’ve got my eyes on d’Alba’s White Truffle First Spray Serum.
Dianne: Oooh truffle #fancy
Maureen: WOW 💸
Zoe: What are the skin benefits of white truffle?
Romy:I just want it because it looks fancy hahah.
Zoe: Typical Taurus! 😂
Romy: I’m not sure about the benefits, but it says that this mist gives skin long-lasting hydration.
Maureen: I just wonder if it smells like truffle 🥰 because I’ll bite you XD
Romy: I’m intrigued about the scent too.
Sarah: I love the smell (and taste) of truffles 😍 second only to some fresh herbs~
Zoe: Talking about herbs… Doesn’t the re:p. Bio Fresh Mask – the one made with calming herbs – sound like a feast?
Dianne: Omg same! It’s vegan-friendly to boot! Perfect for Thanksgiving~
Zoe: Yaas! 😂 I haven’t tried anything from re:p yet, but I think I’ll start with this overnight mask pack.
Sarah: Watch out, Zoe! Maureen’s going to bite you as well 😂
Zoe: But I’ll just smell like chamomile.
Maureen:I love chamomile tea! #Fallmood
Romy: You could apply the mask while drinking chamomile tea haha. Double the relaxation!
Dianne: I love skin care infused with food stuff!
Michelle: Well, I have my eyes on a product that combines maple syrup with ginseng and figwort… amongst many other things.
Sarah: I’m so hungry now guys 😥
Dianne: Such a fall #MOOD!!!
Michelle: LOL! I have pancakes on my mind. I meant maple tree sap 😂 It’s the Raw Concentra Night Cream by MAY COOP.
Dianne: I think Maureen tried a couple of MAY COOP stuff a while back 🤔
Maureen: Yes! The brand’s famous for the Raw Sauce, but I think their creams are really the best. They smell great too!
Romy: It looks like a good cream for winter!
Dianne: OMG I HATE Y’ALL! I literally JUST deleted a bunch of stuff from my cart and now after chatting with you guys, it’s full of stuff again!!
Dianne: At least we don’t actually have to go out into the Black Friday madness 😂
