Review for Almay Lip Vibes - 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I received Almay's lipvibes lipstick in skip the gym as a free sample in exchange for an honest review of the product. The tube itself is unique. It was imprinted with a tropical floral pattern on the lid which is made of a hard cardboard. This tube would stand out among others due to the uniqueness of the lid design making it easier to find in a crowded makeup bag. The product is extremely emollient. It has a very slight aroma yet no flavor. When applied the product is transparent with a slight pink sheen. It does not exhibit color as a traditional lipstick. This leaves the lips soft and supple for an extended period of time without a sticky residue. Would highly recommend this but not as a lipstick rather a lip sheen or balm replacement.

Review for WANDER BEAUTY Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks - 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I received the Wander beauty baggage claim gold eye mask as a free sample in exchange for my honest review and opinion of the product. No financial compensation was received.
I have skin that is starting to age as evidenced by fine lines below my eyes. I have tried eye masks, but found them to be more of a novelty than a treatment.
Going into trying this sample I had a preconceived opinion that they would be nothing more than a slight waste of time.
Prior to bedtime, I applied one gold mask under each eye, and left them on for 15+ minutes. The directions state 10-15 minutes. After removal I actually looked twice, and then used a lighted mirror. The lines under my eyes were so significantly diminished I had to look for them. The next morning the effects were still visible. This is the first time ever seeing effects from an eye mask.
The only downside to this product is a lack of directions. It didn't say wether the gold should be towards or away from the skin.
The Wander beauty website states these are 6/$25 and come in a gold or rose gold foil.

Review for Luna By Luna Baked Highlighter in the Color Luna - 3 weeks, 6 days ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
This was my first use of this brand . The color is a medium pearl pink with a shimmer. While the box is labeled highlighter, I found it to be a great eyeshadow. At my age I just don't find sparkling highlighters appealing . Don't get me wrong highlighting is great, just not the sparkles that tend to show every imperfection.
It works well as a base color or just below the brow.

Review for No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Translucent Finishing Powder - 1 month ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
I received No. 7 Luminate Triple Action Translucent Powder as a free sample in exchange for an honest review and opinion of the product. I was not aware of nor had I used this brand prior to this sample. It arrived in a box that looked like it contained a high end beauty product. The compact is plastic and a bright shiny silver with an easy open tab. I was disappointed that there was no applicator supplied with the powder. While I would not normally use the applicator supplied while using it at home, it would be necessary for use on the go. I don't want to carry a separate brush or applicator in my handbag especially when space is at a premium.
The powder itself was applied with a powder brush after my face was prepped and foundation was applied. It was applied as I usually would with any other powder. It went on with a smooth finish. When my makeup was completed I noticed my face had an orangish appearance, and the powder looked too heavy. The powder has a very pale color in the compact, so it was a surprise to see this color after application. I used a facial tissue to gently wipe off the excess, and it looked fine.
For me the decrease in stars is because there is a lack of applicator with the product, and the color it changed to when applied.

Review for Supermood Egoboost One Minute Facelift Serum - 1 month, 1 week ago

I purchased Supermood Egoboost serum a few weeks ago. I had high hopes , but was very skeptical. To my amazement, I really like this product. While it may not provide a facelift, it does my skin a slightly firmer feeling.

Review for Whish Hydrating Face Mist - Rice Milk and Rose 4 oz - 1 month, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Let me start by stating I love Whish, but in my opinion, this product is a waste of money. I purchased it because the advert is for a mist in the rice milk and rose collection. However, there is NO pleasant aroma associated with this product nor does it remotely come close to the rice milk scent. The box states it contains rose and lavender oil/extracts, as well as cucumber, thyme, and marigold. I have yet to distinguish any of these aromas in this product. To me this is a very over priced spray bottle of water, (the main ingredient. ) The company was contacted about the lack of aroma, and their reply was: because this is sprayed directly on the face and eye area, our natural fragrance blend was not added to this formula.
Well then, why name it something it isn't?

Review for Hempz Herbal Lip Balm - 1 month, 4 weeks ago

Review for: Other more...
I had recently found a lip blam that was petroleum based, and found how soft my lips were after use. However I had to reapply it frequently. A couple of days ago I tried the Hempz lips natural hemp seed oil lip balm. Amazing!!! I has a faint lemon aroma yet no flavor. My lips are soft and supple without any dryness that I usually suffer. One swipe on each lip is sufficient to protect and provide moisture for hours. By far this is the best lip balm I've ever tried. I would make the stars flash for attention if possible so that everyone would try it. In my opinion this product is unisex.

I received this in a subscription box, and put it to the side as I usually do with new face treatments. The rice milk & rose intrigued me, so

Review for Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
This was my first liquid lipstick from Kat Von D in bow and arrow. It is packaged in a skinny tube with a sponge applicator like those used for a gloss. It glides on with a soft almost creamy feel. Unlike lip stains, this has a non-dry feeling when applied. It is not as moisturizing as a lipstick or gloss, but also not dry like a stain. The color applied is the same as it appears in the tube. It is frustrating to purchase a cosmetic only to find it is not true to the color in the tube or it changes with application. The color stayed with some fading for hours even through meals and drinking my 8 cups without a straw.
It also worked well layering it with other products. Kat Von D Everlasting Lipstick Color Bow N Arrow - by Kat Von D
