Packaging is great, but the foundation is a little trash, especially for that pricetag. Coverage is light, can be build to medium but it's really hard to build it up. It just sits on top of the skin and looks a little gross. Looks very makeup-y, and it breaks up and looks dry throughout the day. Definitely not worth it. I received this product free from Influenster to try and review.
This mascara gives me more volume, length and separation than any other mascara ever has. It's one of my absolute favorites, but it isn't exactly perfect. When I first open a tube, it's too wet and a little clumpy - it takes about a week for the formula to dry out just a tad and get perfect. It holds a curl absolutely all day and gives me INSANE volume. It doesn't flake off at all, but it does smudge under my eyes a little which is a bummer - It's really hard for me to find a mascara that doesn't do that though. Also, after about 5 weeks, I notice that it gets kind of clumpy and a little less voluminous, so the tube doesn't really last a long time for me, but I still think it's worth it because it looks so gorgeous when it is working. It legitimately looks like I'm wearing false lashes. I buy mine on the Kiko website when it's on sale, so be on the lookout!
I've had the super popular, SUPER pricey GlamGlow Supermud mask before, and I can truly say that this mask performed exactly the same on my skin. The application was the same, the drydown time was the same, the appearance was the same, and the results were definitely the same. I'm soooo in love with this mask! It feels so luxurious and relaxing when you apply it to the skin, and then as it dries down you really feel it working. There is a very slight warm sensation - kind of like a burning/tingling, but very faint and definitely not at all painful or uncomfortable like some masks I've tried. It takes about 8 minutes to completely dry down, but it doesn't get incredibly stiff and painful like some. After rinsing it off, my skin just looks very smooth and a little brighter, and any imperfections/pimples that have been under the surface of the skin are drawn out so they will disappear more quickly. My face just feels super clean and clear afterwards, and it does a fabulous job of unclogging my pores. It's quick, easy, and effective! When I run out of the complimentary sample I received from Influenster, I'll definitely be buying the full size!!!
This is such a lovely scent, and it really is calming. I received this complimentary to test out, and I've been rolling it on my wrists, neck and feet every night before I go to bed. It's just a beautiful, true lavender scent that has a very relaxing effect and helps me to fall asleep. Plus, the packaging is very convenient and cute. The scent lasts for a good while before it dissipates. I'd really like to try out the other scents and see if they're just as good! Definitely recommend trying this out if you're a fan of aromatherapy.
I received the shade "Lover" complimentary from Influenster to test out, and I am sooo pleasantly surprised. I've never really been a fan of drugstore liquid lipsticks, and this is honestly the first one I've found that has impressed me. Before even trying it on my lips, I swatched it on my hand to see the color, and I kid you not, that swatch remained on my hand for FOUR DAYS, even with excessive showering and hand washing. Finally on the fourth day I took it off with makeup remover, but I can tell you with certainty that it is DEFINITELY a waterproof formula. The color I received is a beautiful, super wearable mediumish-mauvey-nude color. The formula is very thin and it applies extremely opaque - only one swipe is necessary to completely cover the lips. I love the applicator, and it made it very easy to get a quick mess-free application. The lipstick is a little bit drying, but not as much as a lot of liquid lipsticks I've tried. It dried to a full matte after about 6 minutes, and needless to say, it stayed put all day. It felt just a little bit tacky/sticky for about an hour, but then that feeling dissipated and it just felt smoothe and soft. There was absolutely zero transfer when drinking/kissing (not making out obvo, I'm sure that would kill pretty much any lipstick). It never cracked or crumbled or looked gross, it just felt and looked a tad dry after a few hours, but that's the price of wearing a matte lipstick. I'm so happy I finally found an affordable drugstore option that worked out for me, and I can't wait to purchase more shades for myself!!!
This stuff is great! I received a box complimentary from Influenster, and I may or may not have eaten the whole thing in one day (okay, I did... oops). They're the perfect cute little snack when you're craving something sweet. I love sour stuff, but even if you don't you'll probably still like this because it's definitely more sweet than sour. It's just the perfect twinge of sourness, nothing crazy or painful. It just really balances out the sweetness and makes it a little more flavorful and delicious than regular Mike and Ikes. I love every flavor they included in the box too, which is pretty rare for me. Definitely recommend these, they're awesome!
I've only used this about four times, but it hasn't really reduced any if my pimples. I don't get bad breakouts, but occasionally there will be one or two and I've been putting this on them overnight. I haven't really noticed results. I guess I'll keep trying it for a while. I love Mario Badescu, but this one is iffy for me. And I'm pretty disappointed because I know it works super well for tons of people, maybe just not for my skin.
This is hands down the best skincare product I've ever tried. I've been using it every night, and I started to see the results after about two weeks. My skin just looks so much more alive. It's brighter, MUCH smoother, and just looks healthy and radiant. I also get virtually no breakouts now, which I'm crediting to this product. A lot of people complain about the smell, but I really don't think it's bad, and it disappears immediately after application. It sinks into the skin super fast, and it definitely does everything it claims to. It is incredibly pricey, and I wouldn't ever consider paying that much for a small amount of product if the results weren't so miraculous. I just ran out of my free sample and purchased the full size on Sephora.com. Highly, highly recommend - nothing else I've tried comes close.
This is such a nice sunscreen! The consistency is very liquidy and it absorbs into the skin super fast. It just feels moisturizing, and doesn't leave any kind of a weird cast or residue on the skin. It also smells pretth nice, not like a typical sunscreen. I have sensitive skin and this hasn't broken me out at all (most sunscreens do). I just wish it were waterproof, it wears off pretty dang fast and you have to reapply a lot. It's also a little pricey. I definitely love it though!
