Kate B.'s (katebishop) Beauty Product Reviews
Other than the halo, super dissappointing!
I was not familiar with smashbox products until I received this kit for Christmas. I had always heard great things about the brand but this just didn't do it for me. The kit is VERY small and though I like the halo and still use the halo, everything else fell short (especially for the price!) The foundation in mine was faulty - it literally sputters out color and oil separated. It was an oily mess. And the concealer went on fine, but after an hour or two totally dried out. Finally, the primer is just eh for me. It feels nice when it goes on but I don't feel that it did what it's supposed to in terms of priming. Not my favorite!
AMAZING mascara...IF you have money to blow.
LOVE it - it does what it says it will. The downside being that I know this trick and have my own mascara wand that I physically wrap with cotton and do this extra step on my own with any mascara that I have. I will say though that this Too Faced wand is perfect for grabbing the cotton fibers and applying them on your lashes easily and evenly. After trying it out every time I walked into a Sephora, I was about to buy it...until I saw that it was nearly $40. It's a great prodcut, but in my opinion, not $40 worthy, and therefore, not 5 stars either!
love love love, especially for summer!
I cannot say enough great things about this product. I actually checked it out at Sephora because I always love Whitney Port's skin and she uses this with her daily make up application. What I love about this product is that regardless of your skin tone, it gives you a nice tan glow. I'm always hesitant to try these types of products because I am EXTREMELY fair skinned, but Fresh High Noon face glow really made my skin look like I just got a nice healthy tan at the beach. My favorite thing about this though is that it gives you a fresh dewy look without making your skin look oily. It gives the perfect sheen that you can wear under your foundation to make your skin look hydrated and healthy.
I am a faithful philosophy consumer and have been since high school and I generally love warm vanilla scents but there was something about birthday cake that just didn't smell right! I felt like the scent didn't last very long and the scent really didn't remind me of vanilla birthday cake...
Smell like a woman
I feel so sophisticated and sexy and Parisian when I wear this scent. It's definitely my favorite of all time. It's light, beautiful, floral, juicy...definitely recommend! Only downside is the price but in my opinion, if you break it out for the right occasion, it's well worth it.
