I bought these Biotin gummies last month to see if I could get a little extra help with my nails. They were a little brittle from years of wearing acrylics - yes I had fake nails!! I have to say I am extremely happy with this purchase!!! It has worked wonders and my nails have been growing steadily and are much stronger. I'm only using it for this purpose so haven't really been paying attention to my hair or skin...but it's a gummy form so taking them is like eating candy which is a win for me!!
This L'Oreal hairspray is no joke!! It totally lives up to it's name and definitely locks hair in place. I will say that it get's really stiff when you first spray your hair and then sort of loosens out after about a half hour so it's not as hard. I really only use hairspray when I curl my hair and for the last week or so I've been curling it ever other day, more on that later this week, but this has been my go-to hairspray! I think the smell isn't bad either!
I was in the market for a new bronzer, but couldn't really decide on which one to get! I noticed this set of four near checkout! The colors are Sun Bunny, Endless Summer, Milk Chocolate Soleil and Chocolate Soleil! I'm obsessed!!! Not only do they smell good, like all too faced products, but even though some of the colors appear really dark, they aren't actually that dark once applied! For $22 it was a really great purchase and I'm set with bronzers for a while! I still love my current bronzer, Benefit's Hoolah, but it's a little bulky to take on vacations and to the gym, so these are perfect!!
Mix N' Mingle Lip Minis - Gavi
I really wasn't planning on buying another lipstick or lip gloss, but the checkout aisle strikes again and these Bite Beauty minis ($12) were just too cute to pass up! I really didn't need another gloss, but I love their Lip Crayon's so much I thought I'd get another color to add to my current collection!! I have pomegranate as well! It's super pigmented, incredibly moisturizing, and much better suited for every day use unlike the red I have.
I had really high hopes for this mask!! I purchased the small trial size ($19) and wont scare you all with a picture of me in the mask!! I read reviews that it would tingle when it started to dry but I really had no idea how much - I felt like my face was burning off...a tad dramatic, but I waited it out and about two minutes in the mask was fully dry!! You could instantly feel it tightening and I could see all my pores which was pretty cool! After 10 minutes I took the mask off and really had to scrub the "mud" off to get a clean face again. I do like it, but I'm happy I didn't buy the full size!! I like the Ren Renewal Mask sample I tried more!
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation - Color 2
I went back and forth between this foundation and the Bare Minerals Bare Skin foundation and finally decided that I didn't want to get the brush that went along with the Bare Skin so went for Urban Decay's Naked Skin. I don't wear foundation every day, but I've used it a few times and I'm in love. It's so lightweight that I seriously don't feel like I'm wearing anything!! What sold me was that the finish was neither matte nor dewy, but in between and it has buildable coverage.
Ladies - lash primer is my secret weapon to really long and full lashes! They say it works best with Clinique mascaras, but I use it with my L'Oreal drugstore mascara and it's perfect!! I need a new one after finishing off the Origins Lash Primer and it works just as well!!
I'm going to be 100% honest here and say I'm still on the fence with the Beauty Blender! I have tried it for full face application of foundation and don't like it at all - I prefer to use my hands and really get all over coverage. My original reason for purchasing was for the under eye area and using it with concealer and for this reason alone I'm keeping it!! I get really smooth coverage under my eyes and it just gets into the nooks and crannies that my brushes don't.
