PRODUCT TESTING: 

PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Smoothing Blowout Spray ($24)

IMG_5537

I received this product (sample) in my March 2016 Featured Birchbox. I really loved this blowout spray. It protected my hair from the heat and made my hair look so sleek. It also smelled AMAZING! I want to continue using it just for the smell! It was so easy to spray all over my hair and my hair felt so soft. It also helped keep my hair frizz-free. I really was so impressed with this spray and I will definitely continue using it.

Illi Mask in Camellia Oil ($3)

IMG_6309IMG_6737

I received this product in my April 2016 Mishibox. I love sheet masks and am always up for trying new ones. This sheet mask was filled with a creamy liquid. It fit the face pretty well and the product wasn’t sticky. I am not a fan of sticky sheet masks. It was very cooling and refreshing on my skin. It wasn’t hard at all to keep this mask on for 20 minutes. My face felt so hydrated and plump afterward. I loved this sheet mask and would definitely recommend it.

PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Volumizing Lifting Spray ($24)

I received this product (sample) in my April 2016 Featured Birchbox. I have really been loving this brand. Everything I try, I fall in love with. This was a really nice volumizing spray. It was easy to spray in the hair and did give me more volume. I really love the scent and that it didn’t leave my hair crunchy at all. It just worked so well and was so easy to use. I am a fan!

Jelly Pong Pong Blush + Contour in Blossom ($17.95)

I received this product in my April 2016 Ipsy Bag. I am not a huge fan of this product. The blush doesn’t show up on my skin tone at all and I am very pale. I had to use a ton of it to even get a slight wash of color. The contour shade is okay and it definitely shows up. However, it isn’t easy to blend. I really have to work a long time to get my desired look. I like the shade…I just wish it would blend better. I also am not a fan of the packaging. The pans are so small that they are hard to get your brush in and not pick up the other shade. It is also very expensive for the size. I really would have thought this was a sample but it is the full size. I am just not a huge fan.

Leighton Denny Expert Nails Nail Polish In Pillow Talk ($19)

IMG_6617

I received this product in my April 2016 Glossybox. This nail color is gorgeous. It appears darker when applied to the nails and I really liked it. However, I wouldn’t spend $19 on it. It is a thick formula but applies easily. You really could get away with just one coat. It has a shiny finish and lasts a decent amount of time. Overall, I liked the formula and I love the packaging.

Blinc Cosmetics Lash Primer ($26)

 

I received this product in my April 2016 Boxycharm Box. I wasn’t a fan of the Blinc mascara so I was a bit hesitant to try this primer. However, I love it. I have never heard of a black lash primer. This primer is very black and I am obsessed with the wand. It is big but thin and it bends very easy. It is flexible and really coats all the lashes. The bristles are very small and really help get the root of the lash. You almost could wear this primer alone. However, it does work nicely with mascara. My mascara didn’t clump and applied easily. It didn’t flake off and lasted all day. I am just obsessed with the wand and really like this primer. I can’t wait to try it with all my mascaras. I love it!

Your Minerals Eyeshadow in Brown Hypnotic ($23)

 

I received this product in my April 2016 Boxycharm Box. I love Your Minerals pigments. They are so pigmented and stunning. This shade is no exception. It is so beautiful and in the light, it sparkles amazingly. It is easy to blend and lasts all day. It is a bit messy but nothing too crazy. I just love it so much and will definitely be wearing this shade a ton.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Pasadena ($19.90)

 

I received this product in my April 2016 Boxycharm Box. As I have said many times before, I love Ofra liquid lipsticks. They are my favorite liquid lipstick formula. They work really well with my lips and are so easy to use. I love the think formula because it is so easy to apply. They are so pigmented and last a long time on the lips. I also love that they fade nicely. I am obsessed with this shade and love it with my skin tone. I will be reaching for this shade constantly because it goes with anything! I am just such a huge fan of Ofra liquid lipsticks.

Starlooks Gloss in Cuddle ($9)

 

I received this product in my April 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. This is such a cute little gloss. I love the shade and it is so sparkly. It looks really nice on the lips (the picture definitely doesn’t do it justice). It is really sticky so if you are not a fan of sticky glosses, you will not like this gloss. I don’t mind them because they tend to last longer. I think this gloss looks gorgeous on its own or paired with a lipstick. I really enjoyed it.

Pencil Me In Eyeliner in Denim ($6.99)

 

I received this product in my April 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. I was pleasantly surprised with this liner. It isn’t overly creamy, but it is still easy to apply. I am obsessed with the shade and it really made my eyes pop. It didn’t smudge everywhere either (probably because it isn’t too creamy). I loved that it didn’t tug at my eyes and that there is a sharpener built into the cap. These liners are also very affordable. They don’t last a very long time, but they last long enough and are easy to touch up. Overall, I liked this liner and will use it again.
