One of my favorite lip balm products!! They are super cute and I love the scent. It's not overpowering. I like the idea of the sphere shape but once you start using the lip balm more and more, you'll need to start using your fingers! (which I try to avoid tbh). But other than that, it's very hydrating and keeps your lips moist! I often use it under my lippy and it helps make the lipstick color look so much nicer (especially during the winter!)
I'm a huge lover of all things matte but never found a great foundation to use that was worth the cost and that provided great coverage. I personally didn't need to use a lot of the foundation for it to fully cover my face, so I can see it lasting for a while with one bottle. I like that it is also lightweight - it's hard to find a foundation that doesn't feel like you're caking up your face! When I first got the product, it was a little darker than I expected but once I placed it all over my face it actually wasn't too bad. It actually ended up matching my skintone. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a lightweight matte foundation that provides good coverage and doesn't hurt your wallet!

I'll start off by saying my lashes are long but lack volume. So I'm always on the hunt and up to try new mascara products to give my lashes that dramatic look. I've used Colossal a few times and I do suggest to try to pump some air into the tube before really seeing it's use. I often have to curl my lashes before and after I apply mascara because they're long, this wont give you a huge dramatic effect if you're looking for volume but it does make it look a little longer. It's a good mascara for everyday use but if you're looking for something to give you a huge difference then I would shop around :)

I tried out this product originally as a collaboration. (retails at $55) I was super excited to know that it didn't come off. However, when I did try it - the application process is long. You need to apply 3 layers then gloss. Which, let's be honest - I'd much rather just put on lipstick and get my day going. I've never had a burning feeling as what other people may have experienced but it did tingle and it went away shortly after. The product does SMELL. And I'm not talking about a decent light smell, it smells pretty bad. More like a bunch of chemicals in liquid form. My rule of thumb is that if it smells toxic plus you need to apply 3 layers on your lips - is it even safe? can you lips even breathe after that? The gloss was nice to put on as a top layer but it was super sticky and you would need to constantly reapply (just like any lipstick). The gloss had no smell, but the oops remover also had a bad chemical smell. I'm also all about the packaging as well and it's definitely not as pretty as most products out there. Maybe that's something the company can look into upgrading. There was so many reasons but these are the main concerns that made me not continue with the collaboration as I wasn't completely satisfied with the product, I also had concerns about the ingredients and the application process. I'd much rather pay $8 for a lippy that stays on just as long (eg. colourpop matte).I'd only recommend the product to anyone who wouldn't mind the smell of chemicals and is patient enough to apply 3 layers of lipsense (you apply one layer then wait till it dries and so forth) other than that, there's so many other products out there that are less expensive (or just as pricey based on the brand) BUT with better quality.
I do love scentsy as the wax itself FILLS up the whole home which is amazing, the only thing I have issues with is probably being able to clean out the bowl and switch over a new wax. It's always so hot or I create some spillage (especially the plug ins) not sure if anyone has a way to make this easier?
I wanted to try this product out as I was getting into more matte lipsticks and I love it. It's a stick so it doesn't glide on as nicely (my only con) but I am amazed at how long the lipsticks last after applying this as a primer to my lips. It's a def must use for any matte lovers out there or anyone who wants their color to last ;)
Such an amazing lippy! pigmentation is bomb and I don't have to keep reapplying over And over to get the color. It glides on smooth as well making your lips look smooth. Definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for that "POP" of color on your lips
I absolutely love the intense butter gloss. I never used to like the butter gloss line as it didn't really show much on my lips but the intense line really shows! It does tend to feel a little sticky - similar to the MAC lipglass but I'd prefer this over a $20+ product. Color stays on and depending on what color you choose- it stays vibrant. I personally haven't tried any of the nude colors as I'm more of a bright lipstick kind of girl.
My favorite setting spray. I usually spray this on top of my make up and it helps keeps my "face on" throughout the day/night. Great product for someone who is on the go throughout the day with very little to none touch ups.
There has been both pros and cons with this product toward the pigmentation. I personally have never had an issue and I've used 3 different kinds depending on what I'm in the mood for and both have great results on my skin without having to rub too hard on the product with my brush, in fact I barely use any strength when trying to apply the product on my brush itself. I use Sonia Kashuk no. 115 as my blush brush (if that helps anyone) but hands down... My favorite blush. I use BBL08 Ignite on a regular as it blends perfectly with my skin to give it more of a natural 'glow' on my cheeks. It's both a bronzer and illuminator (as you can see in my attached photo of my almost used up kit) it shimmers this perfect golden glow! I also have BBL02 Statement Red and BBL03 Pink Fetish for when I want a little more red/pink on my cheeks.
