This weekend I finally had a mommy’s night out with my bestie. Yaaay! I used my new lipsticks I picked up early in the week by Beauty Creations. I have never purchased any makeup from this brand but I was pulled in by the beautiful color selection. I picked them up at a local boutique for only $2.99. I checked out Beauty Creations website and they are priced at $4.99.
I purchased colors: Naked, Kiss Me and Berry Much. I combined all three and did a very subtle ombre lip. These lipsticks were surprisingly long-lasting. Considering that you always get what you pay for… This lipstick stayed put after two drinks and an appetizer. I took them with me because I was sure I would need to reapply. No reapplying was needed!
Conclusion: Overall these lipsticks are great, they have many colors to select from and for $2.99…heck yeah! 🙂 or $4.99 on their website. They have blush and eyeshadow palettes that I would like to try next.
Is anyone else guilty of purchasing products based on the packaging? I am super guilty of it! LOL Don’t get me wrong I also rely on other reviews to make my final purchase but sometimes I will buy on impulse just because of the packaging. I recently used these products and thought I should do a quick review. Before I begin just FYI I have combination skin but the cold weather has left my skin dry these last couple weeks. To top it off I started taking my birth control so I’ve been breaking out too. So let me get to the point. 🙂
Bare Minerals Bare Skin Foundation- I used Bareshell 02. This product claims to leave skin seamless. The foundation was lightweight, felt like I had nothing on my face. However, did not leave my skin looking seamless it did the exact opposite for me. I felt like my skin imperfections were highlighted. It also made my skin feel very oily. I purchased this foundation because it was on sale and I should have known better.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist- This was gifted and I am so grateful for that. The name says it all. This spray gives your skin a beautiful/subtle glow. It has a soft fresh scent and I don’t have anything bad to say about it. I apply before applying my make up and after. Definitely will be purchasing a full-size bottle when I run out.
Holika Holika Lazy and Easy Smooth Egg Peeling Gel- This product was a great disappointment. Not only did it have very good reviews on multiple sites but the packaging is so cute! ( as I mentioned before I am a sucker for cute packaging) It claims to remove dead skin cells and absorb skin impurities. My skin felt exactly the same after multiple uses. 😦
The cup of tea shown on the picture above is my Tazo Vanilla Bean Macaron. I am a macaron freak so when I saw this at my local Target I had to try it. To start off this tea smells amazing and is very decadent. It is such a treat. I definitely recommend you try it!
