Recently dove into skincare and makeup head first. Really enjoy experimenting with color and researching different products and documenting their effect on my skin. I'm a new but avid bullet journalist, read tarot, and am working towards my associates degree in accounting.
These yogurt tubes are a staple in my daughter's lunch and snack bag for school days. She loves fruit, but they aren't given a lot of time to eat. These tubes make it quick and easy for her to get a healthy dose of all the benefits yogurt has to offer without it taking an excessive amount of time.
Probably my favorite palette out of all of the ones I have purchased so far. The foils and shimmers are creamy and smooth, and the mattes glide on so soft it's as if you're not wearing eye shadow at all. (My eyelids are super sensitive to any additional weight - I can barely tolerate false eyelashes - so this is a MAJOR plus in my book). I waited several months before deciding to purchase because I habitually make sure I can swatch the palette myself before buying. The first swatch I did was one of the golds, and that was enough to convince me I wouldn't make a better palette purchase than that one that day. Another palette I can easily see myself hitting pan with within a year.
I purchased the BH Cosmetics Take Me To Brazil Eyeshadow Palette because I was in need of several brightly colored eye shadows, and didn't feel like dropping the cash on individual pans or jars of pigment. It had all of the colors that I needed, and my daughter - who was challenging me to use brighter colors - was satisfied.
However, despite their reputation with their Bh Cosmetics® Aurora Lights 18 Color Baked Eyeshadow Palette and other similar palettes, the pigmentation of this palette disappointed me. I had to use several layers of shadow in order to get even close to the brightness I desired, and by then, there was so much shadow on my lid it felt incredibly dry and there was a lot of fallout, fading, and creasing as the day went on.
I love the colors, and the available toppers that come in this palette, but it takes a LOT of effort to get the colors to show up on the skin as brightly as they do in the pan.
I spent a long time trying to find the Bh Cosmetics® Aurora Lights 18 Color Baked Eyeshadow Palette available to purchase locally. I have issues with shimmers and foils creasing and fading throughout the day, and really wanted to check the pigmentation before I bought it. I found a local Ulta that had one left in stock (yay!) and I have been very pleased so far. The colors are fantastic, the pigmentation smooth and velvety, and when used with an eyeshadow primer and a brush dampened with setting spray, THEY STAY PUT.
This was not the first BH cosmetics eyeshadow I purchased, but honestly - the one I use the most. I could easily see myself hitting pan on several of these shades within the next 12 months. You do need to be aware of fallout, however. Load your brush up as much as you can, and tap to get rid of the excess before application. Also why using a setting spray on the brush and primer on the lid is especially useful.
I can't help but use this stuff ALL THE TIME. Of course I put it on last thing before I go to bed, but on the mornings that I use a lip scrub, I'll apply a second layer and use the lip scrub to scrub it off. Then I'll apply it again after I wipe off the scrub. I use it throughout the day as a gloss and a balm. It's softening, non-greasy, not sticky, and your lips will feel like flower petals after just a few days of usage.
This honestly is not the best lip polish I've tried - but it definitely ranks up there. While I'm not sure of the specific ingredients, there's a base to it that hydrates and nourishes the lips while the dead skin is being sloughed away. I'd highly recommend having a balm or hydrating gloss of some sort ready to apply as soon as you wipe off the sugar crystals to help provide and seal in moisture.
Seriously. Even if all you need to do is get rid of some dry skin that's accumulated on your lips, you'll come to regret it. You'd be better off getting coarse sandpaper. It'll feel better and be more effective than this stuff! I really can't say anymore than that. I'm going back to my fresh Sugar Lip Polish !
This eyeshadow doesn't budge from the pot unless you've dampened your brush - preferably with makeup setting spray. I even dropped the whole drawer that I keep my single shadows in on the bathroom floor - and it's still in one piece! It starts as a sort of gel/jelly, and glides on so smoothly once touched with a dampened brush.
And once it's on the eyelid - it stays. At least if you used setting spray on your brush first. The first time I used this eye shadow, my eyelids stayed gold all. day. long. If you want a highly pigmented, creamy shadow that will stay put and be gentle on your eyes, this is the stuff you want to get!
Yes, yes, and YES. I honestly can't say enough about this primer. If I wasn't horribly self-conscious about having visible pores, it'd be the ONLY primer I use. It goes on like a moisturizer, has a distinct cooling sensation, and a single pump goes a long way. It absorbs quickly, and leaves the skin feeling smooth and hydrated. There is no residual stickiness or tackiness, just refreshed, hydrated, smoothed skin that is ready for makeup application.
