Latia C.'s (shunarae) Beauty Product Reviews | Page 2
This BOS is my first one from Urban Decay and I love it. I purchased mine from HauteLook a while ago and it arrived on my birthday =). I have been using this palette nearly everyday since I received it. I am an absolute sucker for packaging and I can't help gawking at how pretty the cover is for this palette. I also find it very appealing that this palette comes with a full size of their new liquid liner, a staple in my everyday beauty routine. The colors are beautiful, as well as this palette itself. I use this along with my Naked palette and it is all I need. I definitely recommend swatching it in the store and looking at swatches online before purchasing though. That you can gauge if you really want the BOS for yourself.
I love the color, but...
For some reason, I feel like this color settles into the lines of my lips, even after I exfoliate. This could be an error on my part, so I won't hold the lip butter to this until after I wear it out a few more times. The color of this lip butter is gorgeous and it's the perfect bright lip without the hassle of applying a lip primer/lip liner, a lipstick, and THEN a gloss. I love how this makes my face looks instantly brighter and happier and I love how creamy and moisturizing this product is. Besides the settling into fine lines con, the only other gripe I have about the product is the packaging. I feel like it can come open at any point in my makeup bag, so I always try to my best to keep it in a pocket in my purse instead. This is a really great product and I will go so far as to say that you'll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't like this shade, or any of the other lip butters. Definitely a must-have in my makeup arsenal, especially for the spring and summer months.
I got these as a birthday gift from a dear friend and I was so excited to receive these! I meant to put pictures and swatches of this onto my blog, but I was too anxious to use them. Today, I used Fierce & Tangy as a color base for my golden eye shadow look today and it worked extremely well. I didn't have any creasing that I could see and the color held vibrant all day. I would suggest using these colors with a primer and if you're using them as a base, that you apply a thin amount of this to your lids. I would definitely recommend these cream shadows; they are truly some of the best that I have ever tried.
The Smell Won Me Over!
I bought this today only due to the smell. I always buy my favorite scents in the shower gel, triple moisture body cream and the fragrance spray and today's purchase was no exception. If the lotion is anything like the other moisture creams I have from B&BW, then I know that this will be ultra moisturizing, especially after a nice shower. The smell is deliciously fruity and would be perfect for the spring/summer. I would suggest this scent if you want something that reminds you of summer. The smell is perfect and will be a definite repurchase for me whenever I run out.
I received this in my Glam Bag this month. This was my first time trying out a peel off mask and I was excited to use it. I'm used to the concept of clay masks and though they can be messy, I found that the peel off mask was a little messier. The smell is tolerable, and the feel of the product on the skin is pretty light. With the mask on, it looked like I wiped baby oil over my face, which I found to be pretty funny, actually lol. Peeling off the mask is reminiscent of peeling glue off your hands when you were little kid. Afterwards, my skin felt very soft and smooth.
I use this mask maybe twice a week whenever my skin feels excessively dry. I usually leave this mask on for about 15 minutes to make sure it's completely dry; you'll know when it's dry when your face feels tight and you can't move your face much. I'm usually able to peel the mask off in a solid sheet. I would suggest making sure your hair is out of the way when applying this mask and to be careful when working around the eye/eyebrow area. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to try out a peel-off mask for the first time. I plan on purchasing this again, as well as other masks from the Freeman line.
My favorite remover wipes
I love these wipes. These are way better than other makeup remover wipes that I have used in the past. My first time buying these, I bought it with the blue case and since then, I have just bought the refill packs. I keep these near me at all times so that I don't forget to take my makeup off at night. Definitely a continued repurchase for me.
I like it
I like this deodorant. It smells nice and I can tell that whenever I remove hair from under my arms and use this, it makes my hair feel smoother as it grows out so that I don't feel that annoying stubble. I think it goes make the hair finer, but I'm not sure. This is my favorite deodorant and I would suggest trying it out for yourself to see if you like it.
My new favorite product
I've always been a fan of the Twilight Woods fragrance since I bought it for my mom two Christmases ago, but I never knew that had a shower cream. I'm used to the feel of shower gels and I wanted to try something different. I purchased this during the SAS because it was $3. I showered with this the day I got it and I have to say that this feels so much better on my skin than shower gels. It really is a moisturizing shower cream and it lathers beautifully. The smell lingers on your skin for a long time, and will last all day without the triple moisture body cream and fragrance spray. I love wearing this scent daily and this has become my staple shower product. This will be a definite repurchase when I run out of it.
I LOVE this lotion. I bought it during the summer for after sun care and for the harsher winter. I love the smell of the lotion and made it a point to stock up on it whenever I saw it at Walmart. Very inexpensive and does a great job of moisturizing my skin. I love to use it at night on my feet and hands before I put on my moisture gloves/socks. I pair this the shea butter and cocoa butter baby oil gel by Johnson and Johnson and this makes my hands and feet SO soft in the morning. I recommend the lotion for year round.
I love these little hand sanitizers. I always keep one clipped to my keys, my purse, or my makeup bag so that I can always have one with me. These are very convenient and great for on the go. These are always on sale for 5 for $5, so I always try to stock up on them when new scents come out or I've run out of them. I have several of these in my room as of right now and I plan on purchasing even more of them to give away to friends and family. I would highly recommend these to any and everyone.
