PRODUCT TESTING:

IMG_0735IMG_0974

I received this product in my Bianca Jade MizzFit Box. It is a two step nail process. You are to paint two coats of the color polish and top it off with one coat of the topcoat. I seriously love this color so much. The color is suppose to last over a week without chipping. The polish lasted about a week. I pick at my nails, but was impressed with how long the nail polish lasted. I really like this formula.

MASK

I received this product in my August 2015 Birchbox. I am obsessed with sheet masks; therefore, I couldn’t wait to try this out. You are suppose to leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes. This mask deeply hydrates the skin to help it naturally retain moisture. The mask does exactly what it says. My skin felt so baby smooth! The smoothness lasted the whole week. I am so obsessed with this product. I am going to use my points to purchase more of these because I need them in my life! They are so amazing. They feel so refreshing and plumped up my skin with hydration. I highly recommend trying these!

DOUCCE COSMETICS ULTRA PRECISION EYELINER IN 500 ($22)

IMG_0815 IMG_0816EYES

I received this product in my August 2015 Ipsy Bag. I receive so many black eyeliners, but I wanted to try this one because of the high price tag. I wanted to see if it is any better than cheaper alternatives. The eyeliner is very creamy and pigmented. It stayed on all day. However, it does tend to smudge because it is so creamy. I like this eyeliner, but I don’t think it is worth $22. There are eyeliners just as good for much, much cheaper.

I received this product in my August 2015 3B Box. The wand on this mascara is unlike anything I have seen. It is an flat oval shape. I really enjoyed this mascara. It really separated my lashes and lengthened them. It is not a crazy volumizing mascara, but I like it. It also lasted all day and didn’t flake off. It didn’t even smudge in the shower, but came off easily with makeup remover. This really is a great mascara.

MANNA KADAR COSMETICS LASH PRIMER ($24)

IMG_0868LASHES

I received this product in my August 2015 Glossy Box. It is such a small tube for a FULL SIZE. I have never tried a lash primer before and was excited to see how it worked. It did add a little extra length to my lashes. However, it was not extremely noticeable. It did condition my lashes, but I am not overly wowed by this product. I like it, but would not buy it again because of the price. It is too expensive for just being an okay product.

MAYBELLINE VOLUM’ EXPRESS ‘THE COLOSSAL’ WATERPROOF MASCARA ($7.99)

IMG_0829IMG_1032

I received this product in my Summer 2015 BeautyCon BFF Box. I love Maybelline products and was excited for this mascara. It is a waterproof formula and I normally do not use waterproof mascara. This mascara is okay and it is not my favorite formula. It adds some length and volume, but not anything spectacular. I will use it, but I wouldn’t run out and buy it again.

RUSK VOLUMIZING MOUSSE ($18)

IMG_1028

I received this product (sample) in my August 2015 Birchbox. I have very fine thin hair and need some volume. I was so excited to test out this product. You dispense the product evenly from root to tip and then blow dry. The product gave my hair tons of volume. However, I hated the gritty feel of it. I will continue to use it, but I wish it didn’t leave my hair feeling nasty. I understand it has that texture to give my hair hold, but it is annoying.

Repurchase:

NoDue to texture. However, I may repurchase it.


GLAMGLOW YOUTHCLEANSE DAILY CLEARING CLEANSER ($39)

IMG_0863GLAMGLOW

MAKEUP ON FACE

I received this product (sample) in my August 2015 Glossy Box. I did not like it at first because it did not remove all my makeup (as you can see in the pictures). However, I started using a makeup remover wipe to remove my heavy makeup first. I then used the GlamGlow cleanser. It really deep cleans my skin and leaves my skin baby smooth. I am so obsessed with it. I am going to have to buy the full size when I finish the sample. I love watching the mud turn into a cream cleanser. I just really like this product. I used it the whole week and could really feel a difference in my skin. My makeup applied so much better the whole week too.

I received this product (sample) in my August 2015 Allure Sample Society Box. It is an anti-aging cream, so I tested it on my mom. The pictures are of my mother. She really enjoyed the cream and said it made her skin feel tight. She could feel the cream working. The cream really plumped up her skin and gave her skin some much needed moisture. I tried the cream one night too and it left my skin very hydrated. This is a great inexpensive hydrating cream.

I received this product in my August 2015 3B Box. This eye cream has a very unique texture. It feels almost like a silicon primer. It blends instantly into the skin. It feels so hydrating and refreshing. I can’t believe it is so cheap because it feels so luxurious. The tube is huge and will last me a very long time. I have been using this eye cream the whole week. I love how moisturizing it is. It is going to be so hard to test other eye creams because I love this one so much.

I received this product in my August 2015 BeautyFix Box. I don’t have many wrinkles under my eyes yet, so I tested this product out on my mom. The product is suppose to provide results in 60 seconds. My mom has bags under her eyes and as you can see in the picture, this product drastically reduces them. It was so cool to watch. It really did diminish the wrinkles too. My mom was a fan of this product. It is rather pricey, but it does work.
