I received this complimentary Maybelline City Mini Palette in Downtown Sunrise from Influenster to test and review. All opinions are my own. I tend to wear a lot of neutral eyeshadow looks, so this palette fits right in with shadows I already own. SHADESFour of the six shadows are neutral and of those four, three are matte. This gives you a lot of versatility when you're creating looks. The matte brown is absolutely essential in the palette because that shade alone will add depth and dimension to any look. I love all the shadows in the palette, however, I’m especially fond of the shimmer shades. That rose gold is everything! PIGMENTThis palette is super pigmented. All of the shadows show up well when applied to the eyelid. You see color right away, and it doesn’t take multiple “coats” for the shadow on your eyes to match the color in the palette. APPLICATION & WEARThe shadows on go smooth, layer well, and blend together seamlessly. Once the shadows are, they stay on until you take off your makeup. I experience very little, if any, fall out from the shadows once I finish my makeup. (Remember: You will always have some fall out while you’re creating an eyeshadow look.) I totally recommend this palette to anyone who wears makeup. It has all the colors you need to create a complete look and enough colors to create a variety of looks. Great quality, I can’t wait to try the Rooftop Bronzes.
Most mascaras don't give my lashes enough oomph or deliver on the claims they make. The Colossal Big Shot Mascara is one that finally does. My lashes look fuller, longer and overall more glam than with previous mascaras I've tried. I love how it doesn't clump after two coats.
It stayed on really well throughout the day even though it's washable. It didn't smudge or run.
The brush can be tricky to navigate as first, however, once you get the hang of it, you will be a fan of the applicator.
Overall, I was really impressed by the mascara. It took me a couple applications to really see all the benefits it provided. If you like Maybelline Falsies, you will love this one too! Hoping for a waterproof version in the future.
I received these products free or complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.
I remember a friend referring this product almost six years ago. It stays on through everything! Colors are just as saturated as they look in the bottle. Ultimate Wine is my go-to red lip.
It applies almost too easy. Have a plan before you apply! It's imperative that you let it dry before touching your lips to anything. Guaranteed to stay vibrant all night. If you're having trouble removing, coconut or olive oil will do the trick.
The first time I tried this product, I was impressed. Never hearing of the brand before, it definitely delivered results. I received it in my first VoxBox from Influenster for testing purposes.
Instead of applying it to my entire face, neck and décolleté as the directions state, I applied it under my eyes because I felt like I looked tired that day. What a difference it made! My dark circles were much lighter and the creases under my eyes were not as deep. Once I had my full makeup on, I looked like I had just returned from a spa retreat. My skin was glowing and looked plump (in a good way) because it was hydrated.
The Sheer Transformation came in my first free Ole Henriksen VoxBox for testing purposes. I was so excited when I found out I qualified.
Upon first impression, the packaging could be eco-friendlier by removing plastic insert and making the box smaller.
Like how the crème was completely sealed underneath the lid. The sample in the VoxBox is a very generous portion with it being equal to the size of a normal eye crème.
Sheer Transformation Crème is almost scentless. I applied it after getting out of the shower. The size of a pea covered my entire face. I only needed a little extra to cover my neck. When applied, it felt super light and almost melted into my skin. It also absorbed very quickly leaving no residue.
Within five minutes of application, I could see my skin tones starting to even out when comparing it to a photo I took before applying the crème.
This is my jam! I always reach for one on a hot summer day. It's so refreshing without being sweet. Since I can't have grapefruit, blood orange is the next best thing. Probably my top three favorite beverage.
