Contour -Inglot - Freedom System HD Sculpting Powder 508

on 7/22/2017 4:37:00 PM

I love Inglot contour powders 504 and 505. I have been tempted to try Kevyn Aucoin sculpting powder and I've heard 505 is similar to the shade medium. I thought I'd like to try the light shade but I didn't want to spend the money. I did a lot of research and decided to try Inglot 508 as a possible dupe for Kevyn Aucoin light, which I don't have access to so I cannot say if the shades are anything like each other. But that is why I tried this shade.
So anyway, 508...this has the same texture and feel as my other two powders. Great staying power. All that is good. I am not sure how I feel about the shade. I'm not sure if this is less pigmented than my others or if it's just lighter. Either way, I'm very fair and it doesn't show up on me very well. It doesn't really build up very well either. Every time I use it, I end up going over the top with something darker. Maybe I'm just used to using shades too dark for me and having to use a light hand, but I end up not using it a lot because of this. It is a beautiful tone-a neutral contour. Maybe I'll like it more in the winter.

Lipstick -Maybelline - Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

on 7/22/2017 4:24:00 PM


Aaaaahhhh, another liquid lipstick... On sale, raved about by the youtubers, yes, I had to try it for myself. Not one to go for bold I of course bought shade #15 "Lover" which is a mauve that pulls a little too pink for my liking but not horrible. The formula of this lipstick is creamy, opaque in one-coat, and transfer-proof once it dries down although it continues to feel tacky. Very long wearing, lasts through drinking and eating (non-oily/greasy food), must be removed with an oil based product like a cleansing oil or balm. The pointy-tipped doe foot applicator makes it easy to be precise along the lip line. There is a mildly fruity scent, nothing offensive, and Is really only detectable if you purposely sniff the product. I can't say that I'd purchase this again but it's not completely terrible. I prefer the WnW Liquid Catsuit formula and shade selection to these and they are about half the price as well. This applicator is better but that's about it.

Dry Shampoo -Hask - Argan Dry Shampoo

on 7/22/2017 4:19:00 PM


The bottle is a beautiful baby blue and says "Ultra-fine rice starch acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor leaving hair feeling revived, bouncy and clean. HASK Argan Dry Shampoo is infused with an orange citrus scent." I assumed it was supposed to accompany the HASK Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner that also smell deliciously citrusy and leave a pleasant smell in my hair so I decided to give this a try. It's AWFUL! The orange citrus scent in THIS product quickly gave me a horrendous headache! Plus, I noticed absolutely no difference at all in my hair, even when spraying in a substantial amount. I'm not sure what this is, but it's NOT dry shampoo!!!! It sprays something out, but nothing that absorbed any oil in my hair at all.

I don't think I'll even finish this product it was so bad and will be sticking to the Batiste Dry Shampoo from now on....DISLIKE!!!!

Concealers -Tarte - Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

on 7/22/2017 4:17:00 PM


The trick to this concealer is to bake it. Apply the concealer and spread it with a damp sponge. I usually apply two layers. Once I have dabbed it in place with my damp sponge, I use Coty loose powder to set it. I wait for about 10 minutes and gently brush the excess powder off and then I put a very light dab of Bare Minerals concealer powder (WellRested). I seal everything with Sephora setting spray. If I feel a little dry, I spray Hard Candy hydrating mist. Prior to all this I make sure to I moisturizer and apply a primer. I do this, and I have no creases! Everything stays in place and it takes a few years off your face because there are no visible fine lines!

Liquid -Clinique - Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Make Up

on 7/22/2017 4:08:00 PM


I've gone through a bottle of this foundation in the color 'fresh beige' (03) and I feel like it is definitely a good option for people who have oily/combination/acne-prone skin, are looking for a light to medium coverage foundation and have pink (cool) undertones.

Since it is an oil-free formula, the foundation can emphasize dry patches on the skin and can dry out the skin throughout the day. Avoid if you have normal to dry skin.

The packaging could have been a lot better. It is difficult to squeeze out a specific amount of foundation, and sometimes it spurts out too much.

Cleansers -The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

on 7/22/2017 3:54:00 PM


I love this cleansing butter! It has a lovely velvety texture and honestly feels like heaven on my skin. It dissolves makeup effectively and does not irritate my sensitive eyes. It also emulsifies really easily when you add water to rinse off. It's a great product for the price and very travel friendly. I only wish it came with a spatula.

Lipstick -Too Faced - Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick

on 7/22/2017 3:51:00 PM


I managed to get a free sample of this in Queen B, which is described as a soft mauve. The color is beautiful and the product is easy to apply. Unfortunately, I did not find that the lipstick lasted long. It came off with just a drink, whereas I have had others that were tough even against food. This liquid lipstick also takes slightly longer to dry than others I have tried. The sample size I got is pretty small and it does not look like the full size one is much bigger. The price is $21. For that reason I would probably not repurchase as I can buy longer lasting liquid lipsticks for the same price or cheaper.

Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - Hand in Hand Sea Salt Soap Bar

on 7/22/2017 3:48:00 PM


I recently discovered this wonderful soap at my local Target. This is made right here in the USA, is vegan and cruelty free, and for every bar purchased, the company donates a bar and a month's supply of drinking water to a child in need. I don't think I have ever felt so good about a purchase!!! I got 2 bars @ $4.99/each, in the Sea Salt variety, which has peppermint and eucalyptus. I prefer to use bar soaps for body and facial cleansing, because they are more environmentally friendly, and this is one of the least drying soaps I have used, that also did not leave a film behind. Smells great, the bar is beautiful, and my skin is happy, so I am too!

Skincare - Body -Sephora - Sephora Brand Foot Mask

on 7/22/2017 3:47:00 PM


I bought this looking to do something about the dry skin on my feet and I am pleased to say it was not a waste of money. The foot mask is easy to apply and they felt moisturized after the treatment. They also felt relieved from soreness. One thing to note is that the product can be a bit wet on the outside when the outer packaging is opened. Another is that depending on your skin, it may not do the trick for your feet. It only cost $5. The cost and pleasant result definitely have me thinking about buying another one.

Cleansers -Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

on 7/22/2017 3:44:00 PM


My skin doesn't feel dry right after washing my face; it actually feels hydrated. However, this feeling of hydration disappears after a minute or two. It has a light pleasant fragrance which I could have done without. It also foams up lightly.

I didn't really notice any changes in my skin, after introducing this cleansing gel to my skincare routine about 3 months ago. There are more hydrating and clarifying cleansers on the market.

This product alone is not enough to effectively remove makeup. I recommend using a miscellar water or a cleansing oil/cream/balm before this product to thoroughly remove makeup.
