I definitely air on the more neutral, matte type styles when it comes to perfecting my lips, so this was a bit of a bold style for me. Although it is full of glitter and looks pretty bold, putting just a small amount over matte lipstick essentially gives it a glossy, shiny look.
I guess for me, I don't really see the point of it because typically, if someone purchases matte lipstick, they purchase it for the matte material whereas if someone wanted a more glossy type of lip product, they would go for the gloss. The glitter is a bit too bold for me, but it was nice to try and easy to give a bold look on a night out. Definitely not an every day type of look.
I love a matte finish. The final look that the COVERGIRL Melting Pout Matte Liquid Lipstick gives is fabulous! It's easy to apply and natural in color. I don't give a full 5-stars because I found the formulation to be very dry and dense with very little moisturizing effect. It's fine if your lips are naturally smooth, but during brutal winters when your lips can run dry, these are not ideal.
Oh my gosh, this product smells so good and tropical.
I love long, luscious hair but instead, I have thin, oily hair that gets split ends the second it reaches past shoulder-length aka, my hair is DAMAGED. I'm starting the new year off with a new haircut and this product and I'm happy with the results so far. There are different ways to use this product depending on how damaged your hair is - anywhere from putting it on and rinsing it immediately after, all the way to just putting it on and leaving it in.
After using this product, I've noticed that my hair is softer, stronger, and thicker. No split ends so far! The only thing is I have pretty oily hair and I find that this product sometimes exacerbates that so I have to add on some extra dry shampoo when using this product. Other than that, fabulous!
First off, let me just start by saying that I work in a pharmacy and I would never recommend a product that I do not truly believe in. Zicam, itself, has a broad range of different cold remedy products around. It's not only that I'm a fan of the brand and their products, but the biggest thing that plays into why I purchase their products is that there are many scientific studies that suggest that their products truly do reduce the duration and symptoms of a cold. That's pretty darn cool because when it comes to colds, we mainly just try and treat the symptoms. But the fact that Zicam products can also reduce the duration of a cold is really neat. I recently tried their Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray and I am a huge fan. Sometimes when you're sick, you just don't want to load up on all of these medications that you're not entirely sure about. What's nice about this product is that it's just a nasal spray and acts locally. It comes in a very compact container that is both easy to use, and easy to carry around in purses, backpacks, pockets, etc. I found that it was really great with my congestion. Just one spray in both nostrils and my congestion was pretty much entirely cleared. It essentially felt like a spray of menthol which does a great job of clearing your senses. I truly recommend this product!
I love this drink!! It's very tasty, despite it looking super healthy and not so appetizing. It helps me get a boost of my vitamins and a serving or two of vegetables/fruits daily. Despite it looking it sounding healthy, it does have quite a bit of sugar in it so I try not to get carried away - there are healthier options if healthy is what you're looking for!
My favorite thing about this product is the smell. It smells amazing! And it also has a somewhat sweet taste to it. It's not my favorite chapstick though. I find that it does a mediocre job at actual moisturizing your lips and doesn't last long at all, requiring multiple applications throughout the day.
I received these free through influenster to try and review. I personally loved these lipsticks for multiple reasons.
In the winters, my lips tend to be drier, so it's so important for me to have something that's moisturizing and I felt that this lipstick was way more moisturizing than others I have tried. It essentially felt like chapstick, even though it was lipstick.
Second of all, the colors are amazing. I was a bit skeptical when I first received them, but both the molten bronze and smoked silver looked really great! They matched my skin tone perfectly and quite honestly, I feel like they would mesh good with many other types of skin tones. It is super easy to dress the colors up or down.
I achieved an awesome metallic finish that was sleek, beautiful, and easy. Definitely a fan of these lipsticks!
It's pretty large compared to phones &/or other point-and-shoot cameras, so carrying it around while traveling or going out was a hassle.
Also, it requires batteries. If you don't use rechargeable AA batteries, the batteries run out super quickly, especially if you use flash in your photos.
It does have different settings to try and get the right tone and color quality for the photo but despite having all these, I still found difficulty in getting good pictures. On really sunny days, I would use the super bright setting to try and tone down the brightness, but the photo would still print out really white and vice versa with dark days. It was definitely hard to get the picture I wanted with this thing, which required me to take multiple photos and wasting more film which is expensive.
I've since converted to the Polaroid mini printer and am a much huger fan of that! Check it out.
I absolutely LOVE this. I used to have a Polaroid Fujifilm camera and like this so much more for many reasons.
With the camera, I had to bring it around everywhere when I traveled or went out. With the Polaroid mobile printer, I can simply just carry my phone around like I usually would anyways, but still be able to print them out in Polaroid form.
Also, with the camera, I would take pictures of things that I thought looked beautiful, but when the picture came out, it would either be too bright or too dark, requiring me to take another picture which is super unfortunate because films are expensive! With the printer, I already have a picture on my phone that I know is great quality so no need to waste additional film.
It charges, so no need for additional batteries too, which I love! It's small, convenient, and prints excellent quality photos in the form of Polaroids. I'm a huge fan!
