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. I have linked where you can buy the products if you so choose. I hope you learn more about the products subscription boxes offer. I really enjoy testing these products. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

PRODUCT TESTING: 

ALWAYS OFF MAKEUP CLOTH ($2.97)

IMG_1646IMG_2248

I received this product (single) in my September 2015 Adore Box. I was totally skeptical about this item. It is one of those cloths that are magically suppose to remove all your makeup. I didn’t have high hopes for this item. However, I am totally shocked. This bad boy SERIOUSLY removed all my makeup so easily. I just wet my face, apply some facial cleanser, and then use the cloth (just like a washcloth). Somehow this cloth removes all your makeup and it really does. I am beyond impressed. I also love that these can be purchased at Walmart. You can also wash them many times (don’t use fabric softener). I am totally using this cloth to remove my makeup from now on. I don’t know if I will ever buy facial wipes again. Such a cost effective way to remove your makeup and it works. I know I have said that so many times, but I just can’t get over it. I am just beyond impressed.

DE Bruyere Paris ($17.50)

IMG_2081 IMG_2082IMG_2163

I received this product in my October 2015 Glossybox. I love the gorgeous red color. It is so glossy and pigmented. It also has a very interesting taste. It tastes similar to bubblegum, but not quite. The gloss lasts a decent amount of time on the lips. I also really like the applicator. I am just so impressed with how glossy it is. I really do like this lip gloss.

PHYTO HUILE SOYEUSE – LIGHTWEIGHT HYDRATING OIL ($40)

IMG_2079

I received this product (deluxe sample) in my October 2015 Glossybox. I have heard so many amazing things about this product and brand. I couldn’t wait to try it and it did not disappoint. It is a white and tad bit thicker leave-in cream. I find that it applies best if you spray it in your hand and then apply to your hair. It is actually very light on the hair and does not weigh my hair down at all. It has a nice faint scent and it is not overpowering. It makes my hair feel so amazing. It is shiny, but not greasy. It looks so healthy and feels so soft. I can’t stop running my hair through my hair. I am totally obsessed!

NUXE GENTLE EXFOLIATING GEL WITH ROSE PETALS ($26)

IMG_2077IMG_2165

I received this product in my October 2015 Glossybox. It is a face scrub that is suppose to be more gentle. It is made with rose petals and crushed walnut powder. The scrub is abrasive, but not too harsh. I love the rose scent. If you love rose scented products, you will love this. The scrub did a great job at gently removing dead skin. I really loved how smooth my skin felt after using this scrub. I will continue to use this scrub because I really do like it.

PUR~LISSE BB TINTED MOIST CREAM ($32)

IMG_2059IMG_2224

I received this product (sample) in my October 2015 Ipsy Bag. I love BB Creams, but usually they don’t match my skin tone very well. This one was an exception. It matched my skin tone so perfectly. I was also impressed with the coverage of this BB Cream. It is a thicker BB cream and actually made my skin look flawless. I didn’t even need concealer. I love the finish of this BB cream and I love how my skin looks. I will definitely have to pick up the FULL SIZE because I love it that much. This is seriously the best BB cream I have ever tried.

TARTE ENERGY LIPSURGENCE SKINTUITIVE LIP GLOSS ($19)

IMG_2063IMG_2225

I received this product in my October 2015 Ipsy Bag. I was totally skeptical about this lip gloss. It is one of those products that customizes the color based on your pH balance and make up. I have never had much luck with these type of products. However, I am totally in love with this gloss. I love the light pink color it gave my lips. Note: This may give your lips a different shade of pink. I just can’t stop wearing this lip gloss or looking at my lips in the mirror. My lips look fuller and this is just my perfect shade of pink. It looks amazing with my skin tone. The gloss is not sticky at all and it is very moisturizing. I am a huge fan of this gloss and will definitely be buying the FULL SIZE when I run out. If Ipsy makes this a point perk, I am totally getting it. I would definitely recommend this lip gloss. It is amazing.

CULT COSMETICS NAIL POLISH IN BONEYARDS ($12)

IMG_2117IMG_2178

I received this product in my October 2015 Boxycharm Box. I like the Cult formula and it lasts awhile on the nails before chipping. It lasts about 3 days which is good for me. I am so hard on my nails. I really like this color and looks nice with my skin tone. It is glossy and I am just a huge fan of the color. I am always happy to receive Cult nail polishes in subscription boxes.

LORD & BERRY LINE/SHADE EYELINER ($18)

IMG_2118 IMG_2119

I received this product in my October 2015 Boxycharm Box. I get so many black eyeliners in subscription boxes. I get tired of them. However, this is an exception. This black eyeliner is amazing. I totally wish it wasn’t so expensive. It is so black and creamy. It lasted a very long time on my eyes and waterline. It also didn’t smudge all over my eyes. It was so easy to apply and I actually could apply winged eyeliner with this pencil. I usually have to use gel or liquid eyeliner to get my wing. I am a huge fan of this eyeliner and formula.

I received this product in my October 2015 Boxycharm Box. At first I didn’t think I was going to like this mascara. The wand is so huge and I thought it would be very messy. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It isn’t very messy and It adds a lot of volume to the lashes. It is not my most favorite mascara ever, but I really do like it. It is a more drier formula, but it doesn’t flake off. The mascara also held my curl for a decent amount of time. I don’t know if it is worth $24, but it is a pretty good mascara.

PALMETTO DERMA REJUVENATING ANTIOXIDANT MASK ($64)

IMG_2116IMG_2168

I received this product in my October 2015 Boxycharm Box. I really thought the jar would be much bigger. It is a tiny jar, but there is a decent amount of product inside. This mask is suppose to clear skin and remove damage. I think this is a pretty basic mask. I have cheaper masks that work about the same. I didn’t notice any huge improvement in my skin. It felt nice on the skin, but nothing spectacular. I like this face mask, but think it is overpriced. However, I only used it one time. I will have to use it more to see if any major improvement occurs. I did love that it doesn’t irritate my skin.

PENCIL ME IN EYELINER IN ONE CENT ($6.99)

IMG_2072 IMG_2073

I received this product in my October 2015 Lip Monthly Bag. I have never heard of this brand and was excited to try this eyeliner. I was really happy it wasn’t another black eyeliner. The formula is decently creamy. It is a tad bit dry, but doesn’t pull too hard on the eyes. I love the shade and it works perfectly as a base or on the lower lash line. It is so perfect for fall. I have a feeling I will be using this eyeliner a lot this fall. I was impressed with it and it is an overall nice eyeliner.

JCAT LIPSTICK IN AUBURN  ($2.99)

IMG_2068 IMG_2069IMG_2203

I received this product in my October 2015 Lip Monthly Bag. I did not think I would like this lipstick because the swatch felt very dry. It is a matte lip color and it swatches terribly. However, on the lips it is very creamy. I have no clue how this happens, but it does. It is matte on the lips, but it is not uncomfortable to wear. I didn’t feel like it dried my lips out. I thought I would love the color, but it is not very flattering with my skin tone. It is so fun to test products because first impressions are not always correct. At first, I thought I would love the color and hate the formula. However, I love the formula and dislike the color. Crazy how things happen.

SNP BIRD’S NEST AQUA AMPOULE MASK ($3)

IMG_1924IMG_2249

I received this product in my October 2015 Mishibox. I am such a fan of sheet masks (which I am sure you all know by now). However, this one was not my favorite. It left little lines on my face almost like when you get a rug burn. It wasn’t red or anything, but those little lines were there. It felt nice while it was on. I didn’t notice any difference in my skin except for those lines. It just wasn’t my favorite sheet mask.
