NYX Ombre Lip Duo in Peaches & Cream ($12)

 

I received this product in my Summer 2016 Beautycon BFF Box. I put off testing this product for so long because I didn’t think I would like it at all! I was TOTALLY wrong. I LOVE it! It was so fun and easy to apply. I lined my lips with the darker shade and blended in the corners. I applied the lighter shade to the center of the lips and blended out. I love the effect it gave my lips. It was so comfortable to wear and didn’t dry my lips out at all. I just love how it looks and wears. It lasted almost all day and faded beautifully. I am a HUGE fan of these ombre lip duos and I want to purchase all the shades. They are just so fun and so gorgeous. The formula is also great!

MDSolarSciences Mineral Creme SPF 50 Broad Spectrum UVA-UVA Sunscreen

I received this product (sample) in my 2nd July 2016 Birchbox. I love MDSolarSciences so much. They make amazing products and this is no exception. If you hate the feeling of sunscreen, you would love this brand. It feels like nothing on your skin and doesn’t smell like anything either. It sinks into the skin so quickly and leaves my skin feeling so smooth. This is a mattifying sunscreen so my skin doesn’t look greasy at all. It doesn’t irritate my skin one bit. I love that I can protect my skin without the nasty feeling of sunscreen. I am a HUGE fan of this sunscreen and will definitely buy the FULL SIZE. I just love it.

I received this product in my July 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. This pigment is gorgeous. I love how shimmery it is and that it lasts all day on the eyes. It really captures the light and I just love the color so much. It is very messy to use but luckily, it brushes right off the face. I did use a primer to make sure the pigment had something to stick to. It is very pigmented and I just love the look I was able to achieve. It is a bit difficult to blend so I recommend it as a lid color. I would definitely pick up more shades on sale.

I received this product (sample) in my August 2016 Ipsy Bag. This powder is very finely milled. It has real crushed diamonds inside. It is an all over face powder (not a highlight, per se). It gives the face a lovely subtle glow. It is very subtle. It is so easy to use and looks beautiful on the skin. This powder definitely feels high quality and I really like it! I don’t know if I would repurchase, but I will definitely continue using it. I might repurchase.

I received this product in my August 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. I really wasn’t a fan of this cheek tint at all. It is a beautiful color and I love the texture. However, it was impossible to blend. I was left with a large circle that just wouldn’t blend. You don’t need much at all and this tube would last me a lifetime. I think cheek stains just aren’t for me. I will be giving this away because I really just don’t want to fool with it.

I received this product in my August 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. This is supposed to be a lip/cheek product. However, this color doesn’t work for my skin tone in that sense. I used it as a bronzing stick and it is okay. It is very shimmery so you definitely don’t want to contour with it. It did warm up my face a little bit. It was very easy to blend which is very nice. However, I don’t think I will use it as a bronzing stick again. I might try it as an eyeshadow base or cream eye shadow because it really is a pretty shade. I wouldn’t repurchase this product because it just doesn’t work that well (especially with my skin tone).

I received this product in my August 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. I really love this lip liner. I love the color and it would go with anything. It is really creamy and easy to apply. I was able to get a very precise line. It was comfortable to wear and lasted a very long time. It also faded beautifully. I wish Lord & Berry was easier to find in the USA because it is expensive to purchase here. I don’t think I will purchase more because they are pricey. However, I really love this lip liner and will continue to use it.

Lancome Energie De Vie Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer

I received this product (sample) in my August 2016 Sephora Play! Box. This moisturizer was pretty nice. I did notice a slight glow in my skin. However, it wasn’t anything drastic. The formula is a very thin, almost like a serum. It sinks into the skin very quickly and my skin felt very hydrated. I don’t really have anything negative to say about this product. I don’t think I would repurchase because I have so many moisturizers right now.

SKINFOOD BLACK SUGAR MASK IN STRAWBERRY

 

I received this product in my August 2016 PinkSeoul Mask Box. I LOVE this mask so much! I am a huge fan of strawberries and this mask felt like I was putting delicious strawberries all over my skin. It smells amazing and I just wanted to eat it (I don’t recommend trying that, though). It felt amazing on the skin and really removed the dead skin. It didn’t irritate my skin at all. My skin was left feeling so smooth and even. I just love this mask so much and I have nothing negative to say. I will definitely be purchasing this mask again. This jar will last me awhile but once it is finished, I will be picking up more.

NIA 24 Treatment Catalyst 

NIA 24 Treatment Catalyst

I received this product in my September 2016 Beautyfix Box. This serum is nice. I don’t think it is worth $71. I have only tried it for a week so I can’t give it a thorough review. It is very greasy and I wouldn’t recommend it for oily skin. It also works best at night. It takes awhile for it to sink into the skin and I haven’t noticed any huge changes in my skin. However, I love that it does give my skin a bit of a glow. My skin feel hydrated and it doesn’t break me out. You only need 2 drops so this bottle will last me a very long time. I will continue using it to see if I notice any difference in my skin. However, I don’t think I would repurchase.

Erno Laszlo Phelityl Cleansing Bar ($45)

Erno Laszlo Phelityl Cleansing Bar

I received this product (sample) in my September 2016 Beautyfix Box. I love Erno Laszlo cleansing bars so much. They are the best! This cleansing bar was amazing. It is so moisturizing and suds up so well. It doesn’t strip the moisture from my skin at all. It has a very light scent and doesn’t break me out at all. I love how my skin felt and I will definitely continue using it. If I find a good sale, I will be picking up the FULL SIZE.

Etude House Honey Cera Eye Serum

Etude House Honey Cera Cream

I received this product (sample) in my September 2016 3B Box. I really like this eye serum! I love products that contain honey because they are so soothing on the skin. This eye serum sinks into the skin very quickly and feels so soothing. I didn’t notice a huge difference because I have only tried it a couple of times. I just love how it feels. I would definitely consider purchasing it again if it continues to work.

Etude House Honey Cera Cream ($24)

Etude House Honey Cera Eye Serum

I received this product (sample) in my September 2016 3B Box. This is a very thick cream. It is supposed to feel very lightweight on the skin. However, I don’t agree with that statement. I can definitely feel it on my skin. I would recommend using this product as a night cream. It is so very thick and hard to get out of the container. It is also a bit oily which is fine for my dry skin. If you have oily skin, I don’t think you would like this cream. It didn’t break me out and it really does moisturize my skin. I don’t think I would repurchase, but I will use up this sample.

Skin 79 Super Plus Triple Function BB Cream

Skin 79 Super Plus Triple Function BB Cream

I received this product (sample) in my September 2016 3B Box. Stop right there! This BB cream is AMAZING. Finally, a BB cream that actually is FULL COVERAGE. You can easily build it up or sheer it out. It is just incredible. I don’t think it would work with tan or dark skin because it is fairly light. However, it works amazing on my pale skin. I can totally see why this is one of the best selling BB creams ever! It is very easy to blend. It is fairly thick, but it doesn’t feel thick at all on the face. I don’t feel like I am wearing anything. My skin looks flawless when I use it and I just can’t stop looking at my face. It really hides my imperfections. I have used it with all my beauty tools and it works great with everything. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily or dry. It is just the BEST! I am TOTALLY repurchasing this BB cream. It is actually already in my Amazon cart to buy. Once I am halfway through the sample, I will be purchasing the FULL SIZE because I just can’t be without it. This has to be one of the best finds ever from a subscription box. I just can’t rave about it enough. It lasts all day and you don’t need much at all. I am OBSESSED!!!

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk ($36)

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk

I received this product (sample) in my September 2016 Allure Beauty Box. I really love this cleansing milk. It really does remove all my makeup. I don’t know if it would remove VERY heavy eye makeup on its own. However, it did remove my slightly heavy eye makeup and mascara. You use it damp and it feels so nice on the skin. It is a very gentle formula and it doesn’t irritate my skin at all. It also doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I just love how it feels on my skin and that it doesn’t strip my skin of moisture. I would definitely consider purchasing the FULL SIZE.

GrandePrimer

GrandePrimer

I received this product (sample) in my September 2016 Allure Beauty Box. I usually don’t like primers because they don’t seem to do much or they leave my lashes feeling crunchy. However, that is not the case with this primer. I really enjoyed it. I only need one coat and I can notice a huge difference in my lashes. It holds my lash curl and adds volume to my lashes. It does a great job at separating my lashes and I just love the look it gives my lashes. It is also fairly affordable. My mascara lasts all day and doesn’t flake off. I would definitely consider purchasing the FULL SIZE!
