This months bag featured pretty good items! While none of them gave me a wow factor, every product does work well and this bag overall was a good one!
PERIPERA | Peri's Ink Velvet in #9 Love Sniper Red
THEIR CLAIM: the creamy, matte formula will coat your lips in color for hours; It’s lightweight, very buildable, and won’t dry out your lips like some matte formulas.
MY REVIEW: First of all, I love cute little products so this was adorable to receive! It’s a creamy lip product that’s perfect for travel or putting in your purse or pocket when being out and about. It’s a great color- pigmented and buildable. Lightweight but man this is a STAIN. this product does not come off. And if you try to it just ends up looking like cool air on your lips. So this is perfect if you need something long lasting but I personally like matte products so I won’t be using this much. But honestly it’s a great color and lasts long time.
CIATÉ LONDON | Mini Translucent Setting Powder in Hideout
THEIR CLAIM: This powder is finely-milled and blendable, which means no caking or creasing; It’s ultra-lightweight, so your skin can breathe; this stuff keeps your makeup in place all day;It’s not just for your face! In a pinch, it can also double as a dry shampoo.The totally translucent shade works on all skin tones.
MY REVIEW: This tiny translucent powder is even more adorable than the lip stain- SO tiny! It’s a fine powder and goes on smoothly but it leaves a white cast. It kinda soaks into your skin but isn’t as translucent as most powders are.
TARTE | Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Quirky
THEIR CLAIM: This stuff benefits every skin type. Oily? It minimizes shine. Dry? It’s crazy hydrating and helps your skin hold onto moisture. Combo? It’ll keep your skin balanced and happy.It’s soft, silky, and easy to blend with your fingertips or a brush; The coral shade gives all skin tones a super pretty glow.
MY REVIEW: This blush is a gorgeous color because it’s a nice natural pink, not something too pink or unnatural looking. It is buildable and I do find I have to put on a few coats but I love how natural it looks! It's not a bright pink- more subtle.
PURLISSE | Perfect Glow BB Cream SPF 30 in Medium
THEIR CLAIM: With the smooth texture of a tinted moisturizer, the SPF benefits of a sunscreen, and the sheer coverage of a lightweight foundation, this BB cream does it all; It’s packed with ingredients your skin loves, like chamomile and artemisia (to soothe and smooth) and sugar maple (to retain moisture and get you glowing); It works on any skin type; We applied it in the AM and our skin looked even and bright all day long—we barely needed to touch up.
MY REVIEW: The first time I out on this BB cream it looked way too light and sometimes products with spf can make you look whiter and paler than usual because of the spf. This BB looks really good! It looks just like your skin but evens out your tone and feels so light, and isn’t oily at all. I fell in love with this product and the color is a close match to my skin tone. I love he feel, how it makes my skin look flawless, and it doesn’t have a wierd smell either.
MARC ANTHONY TRUE PROFESSIONAL | Bye Bye Frizz Heat Protectant Leave in Conditioner
THEIR CLAIM: Coconut oil keeps hair nourished and seriously hydrated; this formula fights against humidity and frizz; makes quick work of tangles and won’t weigh your hair down; You can apply it to damp hair as a leave-in conditioner OR smooth it onto dry hair to tame flyaways.
MY REVIEW: Last item I got is a hair product which I always appreciate because since most of my hair is blonde, I like to try new products to take care it it. I got the Marc Anthony Frizz leave in cream. It’s lightweight, smells so good, and actually works!I
