Lorac | Pro Loose Setting Powder

MSRP: $30.00

“This ultra-fine, cashmere soft powder gives the illusion of an airbrushed, flawless complexion. The multi-purpose, airy, lightweight formula blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines, sets, and corrects under eyes, as well brightens for the ultimate glow, while holding makeup all day without flashback. Set, bake and brighten without drying or settling.”

I hated this product if I be completely honest. Not only was the color off but I did not like the texture of this setting powder. It felt very drying on my skin despite its claims of “set, bake, and brighten without drying..”.

Laura Mercier | Balancing Foaming Cleanser

MSRP: $30.00

“A foaming cleanser that gently yet effectively removes makeup, dirt, and excess oil without stripping skin of essential moisture.”

I enjoy using this cleanser. It is rich, smells luxurious and leaves my skin feeling soft and plump. My dry skin loves this foaming cleanser and usually foaming cleansers tend to leave my skin a little dry.

Bloomeffects | Tulip Dew Mist

MSRP: $34.00

“A multitasking face mist that delivers a brightening boost of antioxidants, plant extracts, and Vitamins B3, C, D, and E to revitalize, refresh, and energize. It’s designed to work as a humectant to prevent moisture loss, plus its formulated with environmentally conscious BoV technology (a first of its kind for clean beauty!). perfect on bare skin, over makeup, or throughout the day as an awakening skin pick-me-up.”

So far, I like this face mist. It is refreshing and very hydrating. It plays well with my makeup and enhances the look with a nice dewy finish.

Bite Beauty | Upswing Extreme Longwear Liquid Eyeliner

Plus, the dip format gives you solid, jet-black color payoff in a clean, vegan formula that applies effortlessly and doesn’t fade.”

Like most liquid eyeliners this one gets the job done with no bleeding and the fine felt tip makes creating wings easy and comfortable.

“This weightless hair oil revitalizes strands from root to ends. Powered by moringa oil, this blend works to hydrate and fight frizz. It’s proven to enhance shine by 75% (in a third-party lab testing setting after applying to dry human hair fibers).”

Hydrating? Yes. Fights frizz? Yes. Will I purchase this oil again on my own? Probably not. Nothing against it but I already have hair products making the same claims.
