Alysea P.'s (alyseap) Beauty Product Reviews
I'm a Believer :)
I started using these a couple months back as an alternative to my Neutrogena ones. These are by far the best facial towelettes I have ever used on my face. They do not leave that weird oily residue feeling that I find most others leave on my face. I actually use this to remove my makeup in the evening and I find that it does an impressive job. I love the smell, nothing too harsh and quite refreshing, and I also love the packaging, a convenient plastic flip open lid that when closed seals in the moisture to avoid accidentally causing your wipes to dry out, its fool proof! I definitely recommend these to anyone looking to try something new that is not only all natural, but absolutely amazing at its job. xox
I have been using this product for almost 8 years! I use it to cover blemishes, blotchiness and as an all over cover on my eyelids to erase fine red veins ad whatnot before eyeshadow application. I cannot say enough about this product. It does exactly what it says it does and does not leave my skin feeling oily at all! I definitely think it is a plus as well to have a little SPF in there. I love that this company is animal cruelty free and doesn't use parabens etc. Definitely worth a try! This company is aimed toward those with yellow / olive undertones which I think is great because it's hard to find things that really matched my skin well before this :) I am the color bamboo.
Nice Baby Pink
This lipstick, I was told was a dupe to MAC's Angel, which I have as well. I however, don't think its a dupe at all, at least on my lips. Maybe on a more light toned lip it comes off different, but on mine it doesn't look the same as my Angel does. I do definitely think this lipstick is gorgeous though. It is very pigmented and is a very light carnation baby pink. I normally throw a gloss over this and the outcome is very pretty. I also like that with Revlon lipsticks, you can see the color through a clear panel at the top of the lipstick :)
I have Pinky and Pinched, which is not listed here. I love Pinky, it comes across as a super barbie pink to the eye, and actually for the most part goes on that way too, which I love. I love that what you see is often what you get as far as coloring with NYX, there will be no surprise sheerness to the products, which is such a bummer when that happens. I love my pinched one as well, its very reminiscent of NARS orgasm, but less than half the price!
These are my favorite makeup brushes. At this price, you are getting SO much quality, you feel like it should be costing you a ton more. For just about $99 (which I paid), you are getting 12 brushes that will last you very long, considering you take care of them properly. I didn't see much shedding, maybe a FEW tiny hairs before my first thorough wash, but after that nothing. I am so pleased with this set, it is really all you need for your kit!
I was browsing the lipstick section of Walmart today and found this shade. The name of a lipstick is what normally catches my eye, as did with this one. I thought to myself, Latino, hymm sounds interesting, being that I myself am a Latina :) When I opened it up and saw the shade I was pleasantly surprised that it was a gorgeous golden undertoned pinkish/ peachy/ coral. I have been looking for a lipstick similar to this for a while, and at just about $5, this was a steal! I love how moisturizing it is as well :)
This eyeliner is pretty awesome. I use it on my waterline and without having to go over it again and again it appears very smooth and dark, which I love. It is easy to smudge, IF you want that, however if you'd prefer a dark bold line, I have found that it will stay in place for a good period of time without messily getting all over the place. I have the Whiskey.Zero Duo as well as a separate Zero and it makes me wish that they would release a separate Whiskey as well :( Underground just doesn't appear the same as Whiskey does.
Does it get better?
Honestly, this is my favorite and the best makeup palette I have ever owned, as i'm sure many of you can agree with me. It is perfect for everyday simple neutral looks, yet can also give you a night time sultry look. Who would have ever thought that such a wide range of looks could be possible with only one small palette? Im so impressed with color payoff and the convenience of this palette, def my number one beauty purchase in a while!
Good Quick Cleaner
I bought this makeup brush cleaner a few months ago and have used it many times and still have a ton left! A little goes a long way with this in my opinion. I use a little on a clean paper towel and it really removes all of the makeup from my brushes. I use this during the week for an every day quick clean, but for deep cleaning I baby shampoo and olive oil :)
