I was thankful enough to receive this mascara complimentary for review from Influenster. This is the first Givenchy product I have ever tried and am now interested in trying more. I enjoy this mascara quite a bit. I definitely have pros and cons to this product, though. I think the wand is innovative. It’s a cool design, but there is quite a bit of a learning curve involved. I tend to really try to coat my lashes, starting at the root, so the first time I tried this mascara, I pretty much stabbed my eye. The wand is rather sharp too, so you’ve got to be careful when adjusting to the different design because it actually hurts worse than a typical mascara wand. The formula is actually pretty great. It has lasted throughout the day for me, even in the blistering heat, without flaking or smearing onto my cheeks. It separated my lashes and lengthened some, I just prefer a more voluminous appearance. I feel as though this mascara is more natural than most of the looks I am going for. The mascara also has a strong rose scent. Weirdly enough, I don’t have a great sense of smell, so I wasn’t bothered by it. But I can definitely see those sensitive to smells being effected. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous. It’s weighty and feels luxurious, which it should, since it costs almost $30. That is probably my biggest problem with mascara. For $29, that is even more expensive than your typical higher-end mascara. And for me, it’s not practical, so it’s not something that I will be repurchasing. I will definitely use all of the tube, but that’s it. The wand is cool, but somewhat gimmicky. It ended up taking me longer to be more gentle and precise while trying to master the technique. And if I get used to using mascara in this way, it’s just going to limit my abilities when I try other brands, so in the long run, it’s not going to be my best option. Now, if you’ve got the money and you’re looking for a good, more natural, mascara in beautiful packaging, go for it! You won’t be disappointed. Just don’t think that the extra cost of this mascara is going to change your world, because it’s not. It is lovely to look at though!
I received Givenchy complimentary for review purposes.
I absolutely love these lashes! I bought a pack with five pairs and an applicator and it's been great! I'm still getting used to applying lashes, so the Kiss lashes are fantastic because they are so easy to apply! Plus they are affordable and last quite a while! I've tried to take really good care of them, just to see how long they could potentially last. And I've worn one pair at least five times now and they still look great! They are natural and comfortable! Definitely worth the try!
I do like this Micellar Water. It's not my absolute favorite, but for the price and how easy it is to find, it works just fine! If you don't want to wash your face afterwards, you may not like this product. I don't necessarily feel a residue left behind, but I would recommend washing your face afterwards. It does remove makeup so well, so it is definitely worth the try!
I personally do not like this cleanser. I didn't have the highest of hopes, just because I have combination skin, and I wasn't really sure how a lotion cleaner would make my skin react. However, that wasn't the thing I disliked most. I worked with this product for almost ten minutes and my makeup had barely even began to move around. I continued to attempt to massage away my makeup, but it just smeared around. It said that you could just rinse it or wipe it away with a cotton pad. I had to rinse it and then wash my face again, just because of how gross my face looked and felt. It was an oily mess. I honestly don't think this stuff would work well for any skin type. It just doesn't seem to remove makeup like it needs to. Instead, try investing in the Garnier micellar water or a different cleanser. They definitely have some great products, this stuff is just not one of them.
I absolutely love this scrub! I actually won this in a giveaway a couple of months ago, and even with using it everyday, I still have some left! This leaves my skin looking so nice and refreshed! It's perfect to use in the morning and allows my makeup to go on beautifully! I will most definitely be repurchasing this as soon as I can! Great product and great value!
The Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are seriously my favorite liquid lipsticks to date. Not only are they incredibly affordable, but offer a wide variety of colors that will literally last all day. Unless your meal is incredibly oily, these won't budge! Beeper is one of my all time favorite colors! I swear, it looks different on each person, but I have never disliked how it looked on anyone! Seriously, it is beautiful and the perfect universal shade! These lipsticks are somewhat dry, but that is why they last so long. Personally, I'm a fan of the dryness, but it's nothing a little lip balm won't fix, if you like! You definitely need to give these a shot! They are worth every penny and more!
I never want to spend much money on dry shampoos, so I often find myself trying different options from the drugstore. Batiste is by far the best I have tried. It is affordable, smells fantastic, and does a great job of getting rid of excess oil! Anytime I convince myself to try a new brand, I immediately regret it, because Batiste will forever be my favorite dry shampoo. This scent, the Wild, (or as I refer to it, the cheetah print one,) is my all time favorite. But that is completely because of the smell. Each formula is amazing and worth every penny!
These red velvet crisps are absolutely delicious! There are two long crisps in each little packet. These packets are only 100 calories. I honestly can't believe it. You don't even realize that it's a low calorie snack, because the flavors and textures are so fantastic. They are the perfect light snack and have an authentic red velvet flavor. If you are a fan of red velvet, you will not be disappointed.
Life Is Strange is easily one of my favorite games. I personally love choice games, so this was perfect. The graphics are stunning and never boring. The story itself will always keep you guessing and impatient for the next episode. I have replayed it twice and will probably do so again. It is so mesmerizing. You can make different choices during each play-through, so it is never boring. Honestly, I recommend this game all the time. It is beautiful, emotional, and absolutely one of the best games of 2015. And it has an AMAZING soundtrack!
