Nikki Z.'s (missnikkiz) Beauty Product Reviews
I love this. I wanted a good moisturizer that would keep my hydrated in all seasons and this comes in a TINTED version which I love. It's so barely tinted it doesn't REALLY matter but if you want that tiny bit more of "oomph" it's nice to have the tinted. But I also use it at night in a pinch and the tint doesn't transfer onto the pillow or anything. It's not greasy or oily and settles right into your skin. So impressed with this!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
This is the only face wash I have used for over a year now (I have combo skin) and it really does what it says. It controls your oil without drying out your skin and gently cleans away all of the impurities. I have seen a drastic change in my skin since I started using this and I have no plans of stopping. Totally a holy grail for me and I think it would be great for people with oily skin. And a nice price point at about $19, and a good size!
Not worth the hype
I never fell prey to the hype on this but I got a deluxe sample and used it every morning before my makeup. It is very moisturizing and the smell is nice but it was nothing ground breaking. I would never ever pay the $20 to $22 for this lip balm. The lasting power is nice and the moisturization was there, but nothing out of this world. Not worth the money. Did last me a good long while though.
I have been eyeing this forever and I finally broke down and tried it out. I think the best way to explain how I feel is to break it down. Lol
1. Texture is interesting...if you are a picker of any sort...You'll pick these right off.
2. Putting a top coat on top of the beads changes their colors. You're instructed to NOT put a top coat on but I thought "No way they'll stay on without" but...DO IT WITHOUT.
3. Has a SUPER INTERESTING effect and I got a ton of compliments on it.
4. Lasting power is pretty good. If you use your hands ALOT you might loose a few but all in all I was really impressed of their lasting power.
5. Easy to take off. Can literally just pop them off. Which is interesting considering they don't pop off unless you want them too. haha
I don't know if they are worth $25 for the set but during the holidays it's fun to splurge on some fun little goodies like this.
For me this is a holy grail product and will literally never stop buying it. I substitute my normal conditioner for this once a week and leave it in for about 5 minutes in the shower and rinse it out. The smell is heavenly, it leaves my hair feeling like silk, and never weighs it down. And for how much product you get, I love the price point! It will last me forever! And I absolutely cannot get over the smell. So yummy!!!
Just not my cup of tea
I love MAC lipsticks and I originally wasn't planning on getting this lipstick but was feeling adventurous but the color is just a little to "Barbie Pink" for me. It really is a super pretty color and maybe in the summer when I am tan I might dabble in it a bit more but all in all, it's way to strong and not wearable for me. Doesn't mean it's not a great product, you just have to love bright and bold lips.
Oh. My. God.
Be still my beating heart! It's been 12 hours and I don't have a single crease on my disguesting nasty eyelids... I'm literally amazed. I am going to run out and buy every single color of these shadows because NEVER has a shadow lasted even close to this long without creasing. EVER! I'm in eyeshadow heaven.
I waas genuinely surprised by this mascara. i typically dont even consider high end mascaras because I wear fake lashes so often i don't need to worry about the effects of my mascara but this was awesome! It seperated and extended my short lashes but still made them look natural. They looked so soft I wanted to run my fingers along them! And I was able to do quite a few coats without it clumping up and giving me spider lashes. Plus, NO SMUDGES!
At first I thoguht this was just alot of stupid hype, but when I needed a product to make my make up stay for LONG periods of time I figured I would give the travel size of this a shot and WOW I see such a giant difference when I use this. My make up looks exactly like it did in the morning as it does when I walk through the door 12 hours later. So of course I had to go buy the full size which I'm already almost through... I can't live without this now.
Sheer Yet Buildable
I am OBSESSED with this foundation. When you first see it you wouldnt think that it's going to do amazing things for your skin coverage wise since it's so then but the finish and coverage that is left on my skin is beyond amazing. It covers practically everything and leaves my skin with the most radiant natural glowing coverage. I would definitley not suggest it if you have naturally oily skin. My skin is combo and I set my t zone with a bit of powder and I'm perfect all day. I love love love this!
