I am an entrepreneur inspiring people of all ages to take periodic breaks from their busy schedules and their attachment to technology in order to enrich their relationships through face to face conversations. My tea party catering company Miss Priss Tea Co. is about relaxation and reconnection. I also work part-time as the Communications and Events Manager for Leadership Metro Richmond. When I'm not working, you can find me on outdoor adventures, immersing myself in different cultural activities, and trying out new restaurants and bars.
When I read metallic, I thought this lipstick would be gaudy and not for me. However, I was surprised and impressed when I put it on. I will admit it took a few coats to get the desired shade but it is actually something I would wear regularly and not just as a costume or for dramatic flair. The lip color did not last more than a few hours for me and I did have to keep reapplying. However, I find that to be the case with most lipsticks so overall I thought this was a nice product.
The shade that was sent to me was lighter than anticipated and thus doesn't match my skin tone. The eye shadow and blush are nice shades and I have used them a few times since receiving the makeup kit. The real gem in the kit is the lip and cheek stain. This alone I would purchase. It's gives my lips a natural looking tint and nice slight gloss.
I'm actually not a big fan of lipstick but I could see myself using this product. I would just pick a different shade as the Pink Power does not go well with my complexion. But I love the sponge applicator and that it's matte so the color seems a bit more natural.
I was so disappointed. I purchased this brush from Ulta despite the fact that it was a bit pricier than some of the other options. After only a few weeks of use the brush broke. I emailed the company about it because it was apparent the glue that held the pieces together was not applied correctly...Or maybe just not strong enough. I did not receive any sort of response. I will not be purchasing any more of their products in the future.
I wanted to switch to a facial cleanser that used all natural ingredients and Burt's Bees is a well-known and trusted brand. While this facial cleanser was a little pricey, I appreciated that I could purchase it at Ulta along with my other beauty staples. I have liked the results thus far after a month of using this product and plan to stick with it. The scent is nice and light and it leaves my face feeling fresh.
As a person that uses bronzer powder everyday, I find this product a little silly. To have such a small product be split between a highlighter AND a bronzer is not useful for me. I also found it quite difficult to get the powder to loosen up onto my brush.
A little bit goes a long way with this product. A tiny dot will spread farther than you think. This product is very light with a matte finish and it does help your makeup last throughout the day. I should also note that it doesn't have any real scent to it which is a nice bonus.
I wasn't much for lip color before this product but this "wine" shade is changing my mind...This pencil makes for easy application and is preferable compared to a lipstick or gloss wand. If you are looking for something bold or drastic, this is not for you. But if you just want a touch of color to brighten up your look, this could be your solution. I keep this in my purse to reapply throughout the day and just may need to make it one of my beauty staples.
