Product Testing

Hey Beauty and Subscription Box Lovers! These are the subscription box products I received and tested this week. These are my honest opinions and suggestions.

PRODUCT TESTING: 

E.L.F. TONE CORRECTING POWDER ($3)

IMG_1306

I received this product in my August 2015 Adore Box. I am a huge fan of e.l.f. products because they are affordable, yet mostly great quality. I did not think I was going to like this powder because of the shimmer. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I would not recommend this powder if you like a matte face. This powder gave me a beautiful glow. The shimmer is very subtle and I just loved it. My skin looked so radiant. This is such a nice powder! I can’t wait to use it more!

I received this product in my August 2015 Adore Box. I have never owned a cosmetic palette from Prestige Cosmetics. I really love the colors in this palette and the way the look turned out (the picture does not due it justice…need a good camera). The eyeshadows blend very nicely and they are decently pigmented. I really need to buy more of these in different colors. I am a fan!

LUXE BY IENVY LASHES ($5.99)

IMG_1307IMG_1318

I received this product in my August 2015 Adore Box.. I love that these lashes are made with 100% Virgin Remy Hair. I am surprised at how natural these eyelashes look. I love them and they really opened my eyes. They are not too uncomfortable to wear and they were rather easy to apply. I can’t wait to wear these lashes again.

MARCELLE MINI WATERPROOF EYELINER IN MULBERRY ($11)

I received this product (deluxe sample) in my September 2015 Featured Birchbox. I like this eyeliner, but it is not my favorite. It lasts a decent amount of time, but I am not overly impressed with the smudge proof or waterproof factors. To me, I didn’t notice a huge difference over other eyeliners I use. I don’t normally wear this color, but I did like how the eye look turned out. This is just a so so product for me. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either.

BEAUTY PROTECTOR SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER ($50 SET)

IMG_1298

I received this product (samples) in my September 2015 Featured Birchbox. I am a huge fan of the Beauty Protector leave-in conditioner; therefore, I couldn’t wait to test these. However, I am disappointed. I really don’t like these at all. They smell nice, but they left my hair feeling somewhat dry. I am just not a fan of these. The smell is nice, but that is about it. They are not the worst product ever, but they aren’t the best. I will use these up, but I won’t be repurchasing.

EVOLVH SMARTSTART LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER ($26) 

IMG_1246

I received this product (sample) in my August 2015 Tombox. I love leave-in conditioners and was really excited to receive this product. However, I don’t like it. It does not help detangle my hair and I didn’t notice any difference when using this product. This product also made me cough when I sprayed it in my hair (that tickle in your throat type of cough). My hair feels nice the next day, but there are products way better than this one. I don’t know if I will use it again because it made me cough. I ended up throwing it away because I didn’t like it at all.

SKINFOOD EVERYDAY QUINOA FACIAL MASK SHEET ($4.52)

IMG_0984IMG_1323

I received this product in my August 2015 BCdation Box. I love sheet masks so much and a quinoa mask sounded so cool. I couldn’t wait to try it. However, this sheet mask was just okay. I am a huge fan of sheets masks and there are better ones than this product. It wasn’t terrible just not my favorite. My skin felt hydrated, but I didn’t notice any major difference. It didn’t break me out which is awesome, but it didn’t wow me.

LIZ EARLE CLEANSE & POLISH HOT CLOTH CLEANSER STARTER KIT ($25.50)

IMG_1301

I received this product (sample) in my September 2015 Featured Birchbox. It is a two step process. You first apply the cleanser and then buff off the cleanser with the wet (hot) cloth. I really enjoyed using this cleanser and it was fun using the cloth. However, I don’t like the smell of the cleanser. It smells like Pond’s Cold Cream and I was never a fan of that smell. I didn’t notice any huge differences in my skin, but my skin did feel soft. I liked this product, but wouldn’t repurchase because of the smell.

NoDue to the smell and not seeing any noticeable difference

HIKARI MASCARA IN JET ($15)

I received this product in my August 2015 Tombox. I was excited to try it because I love Hikari Lip Glosses. However, this product is a huge disappointment. I am throwing it in the trash. The smell is awful! Most mascaras have a barely there scent, but this one has a very strong fake burnt plastic smell. It is just awful. The formula is not great either. It did lengthen my lashes and add some volume, but the formula is so drying. After a while, the lashes clump and look goopy. I really don’t like this mascara at all.

NoDue to smell and the formula is not good
