Beauty Product Reviews
Viva Las Vegas!
This is my go-to lip color! The perfect baby pink. I often layer it with Dani lip gloss. However, I wish that these Buxoms had more pigment in them. I have a lot of natural lip color, so I usually have to pick a darker color to get a clean, lip color application. That leads me to my next quest though. I wanna find a lip primer or pencil that will either neutralize my lip color or add color to it. Maybe MAC??
LOVE THE MINTY ONE
Ok so finally they made this product in tube-form! I love this product, but I hate sticking my fingers in it. I mean seriously where am I supposed to wipe my hands after using this product. I'm like a 3-yr-old ea time I use this product and then I have to wipe it on something. It's not very sanitary. Who do they think I am? I don't carry a monogrammed hanky around with me. Anyway, they need to get crackin and make the minty one in a tube form as well. Is it too much to ask?
GREAT PRICE, GREAT QUALITY, EASY TO FIND AT BEAUTY STORES
I have fine hair, and so I need day-old hair for styling. My SASSY BEEZY gave this to me, and I love it! I used to use Oscar Blandi (white powder, not spray bc the spray leaves white residue/hard to blend into hair), but the Oscar one is $5 more and a pain to actually get the product from the bottle to your hair (since it's a fine powder). I like how easy Batiste is to use, spray it on and then blend it out. I'll probably save the Oscar Blandi one for traveling since it doesn't contain fluids
BEST VALUE - BEST QUALITY MASCARA
I love the fine-tooth comb, the formula, the price, how it lengthens, how it volumizes, how it DOESN'T clump... ahhh i love this product!!! plus it's always on sale somewhere, and even if it's not, it's still $7-8. I've used Lancome and Dior forever. This mascara trumps it bc/of price.
RELIABLE, ALWAYS AT THE DRUGSTORE WHEN I NEED IT
I somehow always have one of these somewhere either in my purse, bathroom, makeup kit. It's a reliable chapstick. Plus I like the minty one. Great for priming the lips before lip gloss! Bc essentially it's beeswax, and majority of lip primers contain the exact same ingredient. So save some $ and buy some burt's bees. Oh but don't get the SPF one. It left a whitish color on my lips... ewww
Smells Amazing, But Too Expensive
For me, it worked as a basic mascara, but I didn't see a HUGE difference in volume. It smelled AMAZING, which is why it got me hooked in the first place. I just can't see myself spending $20+ on it when I can get Covergirl LashBlast volume + length on sale for $5 a pop!
Lasts a few hrs in the waterline
Most of the time I use gel eyeliner bc I feel it looks cleaner and darker. However, I got the Zero/Whiskey duo in my Naked Palette. So I will use it from time to time in my waterline or as my top eyeliner if I'm in a rush. It's cool to smudge out on my top lids, but it doesn't last very long in my waterline. I could probably use a brighter color to define my lower lash line, but Zero/Whiskey just close in my eyes
FABULOUS BY ITSELF
Great finishing loose powder, touch-up AND even by itself with brightening primer of course! It gives makeup an airbrushed/polished effect when you finish with it. Also, it's perfect for touch-ups. I use the tinted and hydrating. Tinted for touch-ups bc/it adds a little color (great for midday if your makeup has a faded a lil) and by itself with primer bc/it's my "no makeup-makeup"routine haha if that makes sense. Also the hydrating has a gold highlight and delivers moisture to my skin, so I use that when I finish my foundation
I bought this when I had a beauty splurge at Target. It definitely helped to set my mineral makeup and gave it a "lived in" look. So my mineral foundation looked blended in and dewy, but I didn't really notice if it made my makeup last longer. I use primer anyways. I'd pick primer over a setting spray hands down
