For February’s Ipsy Glam Bag I received the following.
Mini Fully Charged Mascara
Lychee + Gold
Strengthening Grow Long Leave-In Conditioner
I really like how it’s not thick and heavy like some leave in conditioners are. It’s on on the thinner side and less is more. Very buildable if you need to add more.
Blending and Shading Eye Brush 249
I love brushes that are dual purpose. Also its very soft and fluffy.
I love face masks. Who doesnt? I found Formula 10.0.6 last summer while browsing around on online. They had quite a few choices to pick from. I decided to go with the Keep It Cool Mask and the Deep Down Detox Mask. At that time I was having bad breakouts and thought the detox mask and cooling mask would help my breakouts.
Deep Down Detox mask has Orange, Bergamot and Sea Salt to detoxify and clearer, brighter skin. Orange is a great is a hydrator and brightener too. Boy does it smell great and makes you skin feel awesome. Normally I use it about 2 times a week. It takes 15 mins to dry, then wash it off.
This mask dries so fast smells so good. I love citrus smells. I also love how this mask feels after washing it off. A little bit goes a long way which is nice. The price is not bad either, under $10 by me.
After I use a mask or cleanse my face I will use The Keep it cool mask. This mask is a gel and has greatly helped reduce the appearance of nasty breakouts of mine. It has a slight green/gold color to help mask redness and give you a healthy glow. Coconut smooths any breakouts and the cucumber helps clam down the redness. This mask is so refreshing and cool on your face. Once its dry you can wash it off or you can keep it over night and wash off in the morning.
I love putting this one on when I’m having bad flare ups. The next morning I do notice a difference, not so red, not as painful and much smaller. You also don’t need a lot, a very thin layer, otherwise it feels kinda sticky if you put too much on. Also this product is under $10 as well. I think all of their products are around the same price.
Once these run out, I will be purchasing again and hopefully many more of their products. As of right now I have my eye on a few already to try next.
I don’tu think I have done a makeup product review in while. So I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the Mad for Matte Eye Shadow from Elf Cosmetics.
This is the first full matte eye shadow palette that I bought since a majority of my eye shadows are shimmered. This palette, I bought at Target for $10. At first when I tried it, it seemed to be chalky and kind streaky. But I have found that when I use a eye shadow primer, I don’t have these issues. I was also having some creasing issues, even with eye shadow premier, I have found that if I apply my argon face oil everywhere but on my eye lids, before applying my make up I have no problem. So lesson learned. No face oil on eye lids. Check.
I really like this palette. It’s very versatile, easy to blend and work with. The colors in this palette are gorgeous. I love that it come with a mirror, which is really handy at times. I still have a problem working with any super dark colors so I haven’t used all of them. I tend to go from naked eyes to raccoon eyes in seconds and its not just this palette. It’s me in general. I just have to practice more with dark colors. I’m very heavy handed when applying dark shadows for some reason.
I’m very happy I picked it up. It’s in my top favorites of eye shadow palettes that I own. I hope to review more makeup products in the future, so please stay tuned!
