Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Review

This post may contain affiliate links; all opinions are my own.

It was time for something new so I purchased the new NARS Ignited eyeshadow palette.

Usually it doesn’t take that long for my order to arrive, but these sequin cases are hand-sewn so I guess the processing time is longer. Here’s my review of the Casetify Hidden Message Sequin phone case:
