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: 

 THE HONEST COMPANY SEA SALT + SUGAR BODY SCRUB ($17)

IMG_2215

I received this product in my October 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box. This body scrub was okay. I love how thick it is and it is moisturizing. It doesn’t leave my skin sticky which is nice. It can make your tub slippery so be careful. A huge negative I have about this product is the scent. I am not a fan of the lavender vanilla scent. It smells very plastic to me. Thankfully, it doesn’t linger on the skin. I do enjoy how this scrub feels on my skin. I really don’t get the hype about Honest Company products. They smell awful and I just don’t think they are very good. There are so many scrubs that are better. I may be the only one who thinks this, but to me they are a waste of money. I just don’t understand the hype at all.

 Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder ($33)

I received this product (sample) in my December 2015 Ipsy Bag. I am such a fan of the “baking” trend. I do it almost every time I wear a more glamorous look. I was really excited to try this Tarte finishing powder and I must say it was amazing. It really is so smooth. You wouldn’t even need to “bake” to achieve the “baked” look with this powder. It really brightens the under eye area so nicely. It feels amazing and lasts all day. You don’t need a ton of product and this little sample will last me a long time. I am such a fan and will have to purchase the FULL SIZE.

Fran Wilson Young Lips Plumper ($10)

I received this product in my December 2015 Tombox. I am not a huge fan of lip plumpers because they either hurt or don’t do anything. The effects also don’t last very long. This lip plumper is okay. It does plump my lips and I can definitely notice a difference. However, I wish the effects lasted all day. It does tingle, but it is not too uncomfortable. I love that this gloss is clear so you can apply it over any lip color. Overall, this is an okay product.

Fran Wilson MOODMatcher Luxe Twist Stick ($10)

IMG_3735IMG_3993

I received this product in my December 2015 Tombox. I really am not a fan of mood lipsticks. However, I did enjoy this one. It looks scary at first because of the green color. However, on the lips it turns into a pink shade based on your body chemistry. I really love the bright almost hot pink shade it gave my lips. It is suppose to last all day. However, it wears off in about 3 hours. I was happy to see it doesn’t fade awkward. It is so easy to use and it decently moisturizing. I am surprised that I actually like this lip product.

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Americano ($19.90)

IMG_4152

I received this product in my December 2015 Boxycharm. I love OFRA liquid lipsticks so much. They are my favorite liquid lipstick formula that I have ever tired. The formula is matte, but not drying at all. It lasts forever on the lips and doesn’t fade weird. This is not a color I would typically pick for myself. However, I do actually like it. It is a very trendy color and I can see myself using it for many looks. I am really happy with this liquid lipstick.

Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Lip Liner ($17.99)

IMG_4152

I received this product in my December 2015 Boxycharm. I can always use more lip liners. This shade goes perfectly with the above liquid lipstick. Again, this is not a color I would typically pick for myself. However, I love it so much. I also love the formula of this lip liner. It is very creamy and easy to use. It doesn’t bleed and it last for a very long time. I am just so impressed and need to pick up more of these lip liners when they are on sale.

 Stowaway Cosmetics Creme Lipstick Trio ($30)

I received this product in my December 2015 PopSugar Must Have Box. This is such a perfect little set. I love all the shades so much. The lipsticks are just so darn cute. My favorite is the mauve/purple shade. It is so stunning. The formula is very creamy and they are very easy to apply. They last a decent amount of time on the lips and really flatter the lips. I have nothing negative to say about these lipsticks.

Hikari Blush in Tango ($15)

I received this product in my December 2015 Lip Monthly Bag. I really like Hikari blushes. They are so crazy pigmented. This blush is no exception. It is so bright and you just need to barely tap your brush in the product to have enough for both cheeks. I love this color and it looks so nice with my pale skin. I only need the smallest amount so this blush will last a lifetime. It blends beautifully and wears for a good amount of time. I really love this blush.
