Joann M.'s (LDLoves) Beauty Product Reviews
Perfect color for the Fall season
Honestly, this was my first experience with OPI and I'm loving them so far. The only downfall is the price but the polish lasts and lasts. Warm & Fozzie is a gorgeous bronzy brown color with small gold and red-ish glitters within, so pretty! I've had this particular polish on for a week now (without top coat for reviewing purposes) and only have minor chipping near the tips of my nails. Plus, I found the formula to be fast-drying.
I've recently decided to switch over to as many all natural beauty products as possible since I decided to eat vegan a couple of months ago. This conditioner (as well as the shampoo) came highly recommended and I'm so glad I gave this a try!! My hair tends to be dry and frizzy and I usually have to use an intense conditioner to keep my strands smooth. I was very surprised that this product could tame my hair, plus the smell is wonderful! I still am on the look out for an all natural deep conditioner to use, but I would recommend this to anyone else who is in the market for an all natural hair product.
Ok, but not the best
I purchased a few of these tinted lip balms and i found that they were alright. This product does a decent job at moisturizing my lips, but it was more of a waxy feeling which ultimately dried my lips out even more after a few hours. I have a more in depth review on this product over at my blog. My favorite shade is Totally Cute - perfect for a more polished summer look.
I like it
I really like this tinted moisturizer - it moisturizes, evens out my skin, has SPF 15, and does not leave my skin feeling greasy. I didn't have any issues with blending or streaking, I apply it with a dense flat top brush. I've also tried other tinted moisturizers and although Mark's isn't the best imo, its definitely worth trying if you're in the market.
Alright for the price
Pretty good at absorbing oil and setting makeup. I prefer to use a poof instead of a face brush with this product. It doesn't keep up in very humid weather when my face is oilier. I like to use it in the Spring/Fall seasons. Staying power isn't much - 3 hours at most in my experience. Packaging isn't great and not travel friendly.
I picked this product up for the first time last week in the color Peachy. The color is gorgeous and I felt that there were a ton of beautiful colors to choose from in this line. I did find the consistency to be kinda sticky/clumpy, which made it hard to apply at times. I also had trouble with streaking in the first coat but was able to fix it with a 2nd coat. One thing I can say is that the formula does dry really fast and it wears for quite a long time. I'm on my 6th day and it's now just chipping. The photo attached is one after about 4 or 5 days w/ a top coat.
Holy Grail cleanser
I absolutely love this product! It does a great job at gently exfoliating my skin, so I'm able to use it every day. Plus, it removes most makeup - even waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean, and soft. It does take some getting used to at first since it is a powder cleanser that is activated by water. It took some trial and error to get the right cleanser consistency. Overall though, this is my GO-TO cleanser.
This is the only product that I've tried from the Yes To brand and although the packaging is awesome, unfortunately I would not purchase this product again. I don't tend to have sensitive skin but using these wipes made me break out and made my eyes sting! Didn't do much for removing makeup (esp. long-wearing mu) but I would say these are great to quickly freshen up after the gym or to take on camping trips.
Great for experimenting
I received this for Christmas and I'm loving it so far! I have short, sparse lashes so this set is a perfect way for me to test out higher end brands without having to dish out too much money. The only reason why I gave it 4.5 stars is because the tarte eyelash curler inside doesn't do much for me. I would highly recommend this for mascara lovers or anyone wanting to experiment with different brands.
