After a crazy week full of plane rides, panic attacks, and binge-watching; I’ve put these products through some interesting tests. Instead of a long-winded introduction, let’s just begin.
E.L.F. Mad for Matte Palette in Summer Breeze: I’ve had this product for a while and I fully expected to fall in love all over again. I liked the palette…but that’s it. It had a nice color selection and I’m sure I’ll reach for it again, but I don’t think I’ll be wearing it seven days straight. It’s blendable, but once you’ve worked with a great quality high-end palette…drugstore eyeshadow doesn’t really feel as exciting as it was.
Price: $10.00 USD / Size: Ten Shadows
NYX Turnt Up Lipstick in Flutter Kiss: When I want a new lip product, I always go for NYX Cosmetics so it wouldn’t be a surprise to love this product. It was surprising that I didn’t. This lipstick stained every soda can I drank out of but didn’t stain my lips. I got so fed with not being able to drink anything that I stopped wearing it.
Price: No Longer Available
Physicians Formula Refreshment Cucumber and Bamboo Eye De-Puffer: Seven days isn’t enough time to get the full results of an eye product, but this one certainly felt nice. I actually think it helped with makeup application. My under eyes always look so much more awake and hydrated after I use it. It may be a temporary fix…but I’m going to keep using it.
Price: $9.99 USD / Size: 0.45 oz
Smashbox SuperFan Fanned Out Mascara:I got this product as a free sample a while back, but haven’t really tested it until now. Sometimes I feel like all mascaras are the same. Other times, I’m just surviving off the latest mascara free sample (most of the time). This time? The product stood out for the right reasons. It made my lasts look long and well defined. One coat gave me a more natural look, while two or three really made a full glam appearance. When I finish the other mascaras that I have, I might even by the full size and I’ve never bought a high-end mascara before.
Price: $19.00 USD / Size: 0.33 oz
