Review : I have used this once, but I really like it. I have the shade Silk. This foundation claims to be humidity, water, and sweat-resistant. It also claims to have good ingredients and 24 hour full coverage. I think it made my face look very smooth and even. I also liked that it has SPF 20 and I would definitely continue to use it and test it more.

This review is an excerpt from my blog thepurplepanda.net.  Read the full review there.

Overall, I was very happy with how the glider performed.  It was quick and easy to straighten my hair because it heats up fast and all the features work together nicely.  I really enjoy regulating the temperature because I feel like my hair didn't feel as dry or damaged as usual.  While this may not be the best flat iron in the world, it gives me the desired result, has unique features, and is only $79.99.  I received this product complimentary in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own.

Review for: Bumble, Tulle
This review is taken from my blog thepurplepanda.net

The Shade: Bumble, a dusty warm terracotta.  Very opaque colors.  Currently 47 shades, but changes often.The Scent: No added scent.  Very very faint makeup smell.The Applicator: Easy to use doe foot.The Formula: Very liquidy so dries down the quickest.  Most drying out of all the ones tested and does show lip texture.  Most matte, most long lasting, most even, bold pigmentation.The Rating: 4.5/5

Review for: Milan

The Shade: Milan, a soft pink.  There are a total of 23 shades.The Scent: Sweet like vanilla frosting. Not as strong as Revlon, but I still don’t like it.The Applicator: Doe foot.  Easy and simple to use.The Formula: Creamy and silky with a soft matte finish.  Non-drying, but not moisturizing either.  Does sink in to fine lines a little bit.The Rating: 4.25/5

Review for: Aphrodite Kiss
This review was taken from my blog thepurplepanda.net

The Shade: 306 Aphrodite Kiss, a bright pink with a touch of red.  Very bold color intensity.  There is a total of 10 shades.The Scent: Fruity.  One of the best scents, but would prefer no scent.The Applicator: Pro-Sculpt Applicator.  Rounded at the base, pointed at the top with a hole in the middle to hold the right amount of product.  Very easy to use, one of my favorite applicators.The Formula: Velvet matte gloss.  Never fully dries down to a matte.  Very comfortable and hydrating.  Wears off quicker because it doesn’t dry down.The Rating: 4/5

This review is taken from my blog thepurplepanda.net

The Shade: 40 Berry Boost, a bright hot pink mixed with red.  Medium coverage color, but can be built up.  There are a total of 10 shades.The Scent: A mix of chemicals and florals.  Not appealing.The Applicator: Long flat stick.  My least favorite applicator, very difficult to use.The Formula: Creamy, liquid base that glides on smoothly for a thin coat.  Very hydrating and doesn’t accentuate lip texture.  Takes a long time to dry.The Rating: 3.5/5

Review for: Devotion
This review was taken from my blog thepurplepanda.net

The Shade: Devotion, a soft pink.  Could have been more opaque on the first swipe.  There are a total of 16 shades.The Scent: Mix of Mango and Vanilla.  To me, it just smelled sickly sweet and I didn’t really like it.  You can’t smell it when it is on your lips though.The Applicator: Flattened triangle, medium length, plush.  I would much prefer a doe foot over this flatter applicator which makes it harder to apply.The Formula: Wax-free gel.  I feel like this clings to dry patches and accentuates lip texture the most out of the formulas I tried.  Fairly matte, non-drying, lasts a decent amount of time, and dries down after a few minutes.The Rating: 2.5/5

Created in a limited edition collaboration with YouTuber Jaclyn Hill, the Champagne Collection Face Palette includes two shimmering skin perfectors in the pressed versions, two mineral blushes, and a luminous blush.  The packaging is beautiful with a big mirror and the palette closes with a sturdy click.  The shimmering skin perfectors are the highlighters.  They come in the shades Champagne Pop, a holy grail highlighter for many, and the brand new Prosecco Pop.  Champagne Pop is a gorgeous champagne peachy gold while Prosecco Pop is a more yellowy, warm medium gold. Both are intense, metallic highlighters that contain 0.19 oz of product in each pan.The mineral blushes come in the shades Amaretto and Pamplemousse.   Pamplemousse is a bright, warm, medium dark, almost corally pink that is extremely pigmented. Amaretto is a warm, medium, rosy brown that is pigmented but less so than Pamplemousse.  Each mineral blush contains 0.12 oz of product.The luminous blush is in the shade rose spritz, a stunning warm pink with a golden frosty sheen.  It is richly pigmented and contains 0.10 oz of product.Please note that this exact palette is no longer available.  Champagne pop is a permanent highlighter and Becca recently launched a few limited edition duos with the shades contained in this palette.

I wanted a palette with bright, pigmented pops of color and this absolutely delivers.  This palette has high intensity color pay off and is surprisingly easy to blend.  It comes with a large mirror and a double-sided brush.  It contains four metallics and six mattes with “floating pearl” or a slight sheen.  This palette is not for people who don’t like to experiment with their eyeshadow, especially considering some of the colors say that they are “not intended for immediate eye area.”  I’m not sure why that is, so I am a little bit scared that I put something harmful on my eye.  Therefore, I’m not sure I can recommend this palette to you.  Use at your own risk.

I have been wanting to get another perfume, but wasn’t sure of which one to get.  I love the Sephora Favorites kits because they are such a good value.  In this particular kit, you get 15 perfume samples as well as a free full-size fragrance of the sample of your choice.  They also have kits to redeem for rollerballs if you would prefer that size perfume.   I have tried out all of the perfumes, but I’m not sure which one I want in full-size.  A few of my favorites include Chloe, Marc Jacobs Daisy, and Gucci Guilty.
