Hello, my friends! While I’m still waiting for my new Ipsy goody bag to arrive in the mail, I will review my December Bag! Let’s hope my mail carrier is on time.
We will start with the the Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask! During the holidays, I needed some help, and fast. Regardless of my daily beauty regimen, putting away lots of water and green tea (you name it), I noticed my skin was looking tired. I used this mask about three times a week, and my skin looked soft again. It gave me a beautiful and healthy glow.
What I dislike about it is you will notice that it is super sticky. After applying it, you will need to wash your hands to wipe it off. This mask will get 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Also, later on in the “Must Have for this Week” post, I will share with you my favorite mask that I use all the time, even before I go running. Yes, you heard me, even before I run.
I really love the Marc Anthony Argan Oil of Morocco Hydrating Treatment. If your hair is like mine, and it gets super dry sometimes, not just in the winter, it needs extra attention. This treatment leaves your hair shiny and soft like you just had a professional conditioner treatment at the beauty salon. This product will get a 4 out of 5 stars!
For you Smashbox lovers, you are not going to be happy right now. Don’t get me wrong, I love their products, and I have used their foundations and primers in the past, but I don’t like every single one of their products. I especially dislike the Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer. I was very excited at first, because we all want our lipstick to look perfect and last longer, but this product made me look and feel super dry. I will give it a 2 out of 5 stars.
I’m so in love with this Prismatic Shadow. Whether or not you use a brush or your fingertips to apply it, this beautiful, long-lasting eye shadow goes on easily, especially in the difficult inner corner of your eyes, without having flecks fall onto your face. Also, there is not any need to use a primer with this shadow, and it creates a perfect daytime look. So, you do not look overdone. I will give this product 5 out of 5 stars!
Okay, I was having fun learning how to apply and blend the Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon, Blackberry, and Guava, but, to be honest, I would not purchase this product, nor would I leave the house with it on. I noticed the colors are super bright and a bit too orange for me, as a brunette. It did not look so great. Also, the compact is not easy to open. I was not very impressed. I will give it 2 out of 5 stars.
Until our next review, be sure to stay zen, positive, and keep on smiling.
