Love this mascara! It makes it look like I'm wearing false eye lashes even when I'm not! The narrow brush makes application super easy, and the formula is thick, highly pigmented and it STAYS PUT! My new go-to mascara.
To be honest, I don't really wear lip gloss or nude shades, so I knew going in that this wasn't going to be a product I use a lot. That being said, however, this was a nice, sheer nude lip gloss. It was very shiny, not tacky or too thin. Very easy to apply. I also liked that it didn't have a weird flavor or scent. If you're a fan of lip gloss, this is a great, basic lip gloss that can be layered over lip liner or lipstick - or worn alone for a natural look!
This was a great liner! It works just like a marker. After many years of trial and error, I've found the marker eyeliner works best for me (e.g., it's the easiest for me to apply in a straight line). I prefer it over thin brushes (straight or angled) and over pencils. This liner had an added bonus in that the top of the liner is at an angle so you can see what you're doing! I thought this would make it harder to work with, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a really simple adjustment that made the movement more economical.
I didn't care for this mascara, unfortunately! It seemed too runny and liquid-y for good coverage, and I managed to smear it over my eyes while applying. I also didn't particularly like the brush, which was a bit bulky. Just not a win for me, sadly!
The cream feels so lightweight and nice on my face! I haven't noticed a huge improvement in my pore size, but I've only been using it for just over a month, so I'm staying hopeful! It's a good mid-range price for me.
It's definitely less tacky to touch than spray-on formulas, but it's not the most comfortable sunscreen I've used. I do feel like it's less oily and won't break me out; so I'm okay with putting this on my face and body, which is nice because I don't have to carry two products.
This product was fine. I didn't notice any benefits to use, but it also didn't irritate my skin or cause breakouts. The smell was ok - not overly pleasant but not nausea-inducing either. I give it a solid "meh" on functionality. If you're frugally-minded I'd look elsewhere.
I was super excited to try out Duncan Hines' new Perfect for 1 mug cake mix! I've been making homemade mug cakes for years, and this looked so much more convenient, since I just had to add water and microwave for just over a minute.
I hate to say it, but I was really disappointed with my s'mores cake mix. It was bland and gummy white cake with no discernible flavor until you hit a bittersweet chocolate chip or tiny marshmallow. I couldn't taste any graham cracker flavor at all. The first time I made it I didn't measure the water and eyeballed it, so I assumed that's what led to the texture problem; but the second mug cake had the exact same gumminess. For my second cake I also added a mini Hershey's bar and some marshmallow fluff to help with the s'mores flavor. This ended up helping flavor-wise because it completely covered the non-flavor of the cake, which may as well have not been there. Unfortunately it also made the cake overly sweet.
I've tried Kodiak's minute muffins and flapjacks and while their texture isn't perfect either, they're SO MUCH better than this product. I'm hopeful that Duncan Hines' other flavors are better, but for not I'm sticking with Kodiak when I need a quick and warm sweet fix.
It took me a long time to get excited about having brown eyes, but this eyeshadow definitely helped get me there! The pink shade is gorgeous and really makes my eyes look warm and friendly, while the brown helps add dimension to the outer crease and lashline. This is definitely a staple in my daily makeup bag!
I love Vidal Sasoon Pro Series hair color! It provides awesome coverage (even of grays) and the colors are amazing! I've tried their purples and reds previously, and most recently I stayed true to my natural dark brown. Not only is the dye awesome and easy to work with, this is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE conditioner - my hair feels so much silkier and healthier after I use it!
