Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Advance Therapy

I remember reviewing the original formula of Sugar Lip Balm and not being too impressed by it because it didn’t feel like it was doing anything.  This new Advance Formula is everything I could have hoped for from a higher-end lip treatment.  It made my lips appear smoother, feel super soft, kept me hydrated, and penetrated deep enough to fill them in without the look of a plumper.  It’s EVERYTHING!  It also has hyaluronic spheres.  What more can you ask for? Ehh…maybe a little sun protection because it’s absent in this formula.  I’d be willing to forgo the protection and spend a couple more dollars since the formula is so wonderful.

 

Pixi Fairy Face Palette

I’ve never been the biggest fan of palettes that station the lip products near the eyeshadows but this one is much better since the eyeshadows and lip colors are far apart.  The palette consist of 5 eyeshadows (pale champagne frost with iridescent shimmer, pale golden pink frost, pink frost, taupe frost, and brown frost), 5 lip glosses (bubblegum pink, fuchsia, mauve, berry, and red), and 1 blush with a mosaic of pink, berry, and mauve.

I love the color but the quality wasn’t there.  I was able to get the job done and create a nice look but I had to keep going in product too much for my likings.  I also found the gloss to be drying and almost matte.  I was however surprised by the blush, which looked more like an illuminator on me but it worked.

 

Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator

I’m not really sure where to begin about this eye illuminator.  I love the packaging and the iridescent green flat tube.  I think it’ll be great to toss in your bag…but it doesn’t really do anything.  It’s missing the main property, illuminators.  I literally did not notice anything, it looks transparent.  It also feels too runny and depending on how you plan on wearing it could really cause creases.  It also takes a lot to twist the cap off and I thought I was going to break it a couple times.  I guess it’s great that it’s hydrating so maybe I can use it as a night cream or under my sunscreen during summer.

 

L’Eau de Chloé

Ohh L’Eau de Chloé, how do I love thee?  This is truly spring captured in a bottle.  Cholé kept it simple with top notes of roses, citrus mid notes, and light patchouli dry downs.  It’s very crisp and clean and great for day wear.  Something about it is very dewy and refreshing…in a fresh grass type of way.  It immediately opens with the floral rose but almost immediate dissipates leaving mostly the citrus notes to play the major role.  I love it.  Not to mention the wide glass bottle, pale green color and bow and silver top.

 

NP Set Glamorista Mascara

This mascara just didn’t do it for me, I love the predominately high-shine white tube with minimal black lettering.  The concept is great but one tiny flaw with the wand really just got in the way.  The plastic brush gives us the best of everything; it has a slight curve to get those tiny corner lashes, and the multi-length bristles is great for applying mascara and using the longer bristles are great for cleaning up any clumps.  The issue is that the base of the brush that’s connected to the wand is slow flimsy I couldn’t apply the mascara.  Lash hairs are extremely light and delicate so working with a brush that bends too much really doesn’t do much and just makes sparse lashes look even sparser.

 

Pixi Straight on Til Morning Liner in 2nd Star Twinkle

I love this eyeliner! It was smooth, has great color payoff, and I love the olive green and gold shimmer.  It’s even long lasting.

 

Neova Breakout Control Swabs

These little swabs are perfect for unexpected pimples!  Simply snap it at the red line and use the swab to apply the solution, easy peasy!  Since the formula is rather thick I like to use it under my sunscreen during the day and under my moisturizer at night.

 

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Nothing like a good makeup wipe to take off the day’s makeup or even just to freshen up.  These babies were great and got the job done and got it done quickly.  I also like that it didn’t feel heavy or like gel how some wipes can feel.

 

Jemma Kid i-Sculpt Shadow and Liner in Kings Road

This is a great purple shimmer liner and eyeshadow duo that’s great for traveling.  The chiseled tip is great for creating fine and wide lines for various looks and the shadow is nice to set the liner.  I’ve seen pencils like this before and can’t say that I’m head over heels in love.  The loose shadow is packed in a small capsule top and most of the time it’s a pain to use with the firm pointed brush (which is more of a smudge brush).

 

Oscar Blandi Heat Protection Spray and Dry Shampoo

I’m weave free soo…….yeah, this were a no-go.  I’ll be testing them next month :-).  But I’ve never heard anything negative about an Oscar Blandi hair product.
