Hey everyone! For Today’s post I am going to review some new products I have been testing out and using. Some makeup, skincare, and even tanning lotion, so let’s just jump on in to the reviews.
The first new product I have been using is the Ka-Brow brow gel by Benefit. I love this product. It makes my brows look better than any other product I have used. I use the shade “4” and it matches my brows perfectly. It reminds me a lot of the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow but the packaging is cuter and easier to use. It also comes with a little brush, which I love. Benefit has released a lot of new brow products lately and this product really makes me want to go try them all. I got this at Sephora and it retails for $24.
The next product I purchased are the new Tarte 911 under eye rescue patches. It is basically a gel under eye mask that decreases puffiness and dark circles. I have been seeing these constantly used on the Tarte snapchat and have been dying to try them. The first time I tried them was after a night out in Las Vegas and the next morning they made my eyes look so much better. I will definitely be using these the morning after long nights. I also put them in the fridge so they are even cooler, and more refreshing. You are suppose to keep them on for 10-15 minutes, so I just use them before I am going to do my makeup. They sell them at Sephora for $22.
The next product isn’t a new product to the market but it is new to me. After seeing so many good reviews I finally ordered the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter by The Balm. I am not really in love with this product. I was expecting to receive this product and absolutely fall in love with it, but no. I think the reason I don’t like it is because I just set my expectations too high. I do like the formula, it isn’t very creamy but it is blendable and long lasting. My main issue is I was expecting a beautiful highlight and to me, this highlighter is very subtle and almost just blends in to well with my skin tone. I do think it would be a good highlighter for a no makeup, natural look. You can purchase this on The Balm’s website for $24.
Next is a product that was actually given to me by my step-sister, the Loving Tan 2 hour express deluxe bronzing mousse. I am very fair and used the Dark shade and it turned out beautiful. I used this for the first time the day I left for Las Vegas. I love how convenient it is, because you only have to wait at least 2 hours to wash it off. Although you could leave it on longer for more color. I was nervous because before I washed it off it did look extremely blotchy, but it turned out even and beautiful. I used a Morphe M439 to apply and blend it. I recommend watching Jaclyn Hill’s self tanning tutorial, which is what I followed. This retails for $39.95 on the Loving Tan website and it is an Australian based company so the shipping does take a while and can be pricey, but to me it is worth it.
Last but certainly not least I want to talk about the new Urban Decay one & done hybrid complexion perfector. This is basically a light coverage foundation/ sunscreen/ BB cream, I would say. It does have SPF 20 so that to me is always a plus. I love just throwing some of this on and heading out the door. It is very long lasting and is a very lightweight feel on my face. It blends really well and doesn’t look to cakey. I used the shade Light. The only issue I had with this is I feel like the bottle that I received wasn’t very full. The first time I used it I noticed how light the bottle felt. It retails at Sephora for $34.
That is it for my reviews today! Thank you all so much for reading and being a part of my blogging journey. Until next time.
