Benefit Defined and Refined Brow Kit Review

I wouldn’t consider myself to be “brow obsessed” but I do like my brows to look full, defined and fairly natural. My favorite brow product has been the brow kit from E.L.F. but every now and then I like to try out new brow products. I was pretty excited when Benefit announced that they were updating their line of brow products earlier this year. I have tried out their Gimme Brow (which I love) so I thought this would be a good opportunity to test out some new and different brow products. I decided to purchase this kit because I liked the purpose and products that came with it. I know some of these they already had but changed the packaging and/or formula while others are completely new.

Tony Moly Rice Sheet Mask Review

The time has now come for my last Tony Moly review on the masks that I recently purchased. Well, last one until I purchase some others to try out. I’ve loved trying out these super affordable masks and, even though I haven’t loved all of them, they each have helped my skin out in some way. Obviously different masks work for different people and their particular skin needs. Today’s mask is one that is meant to clear skin; which I am super excited about. I actually don’t have much acne at all right now but I still love using products that will help to keep it that way.

Tony Moly Pureness 100 Pearl Sheet Mask Review

Today’s review is of course on another Tony Moly sheet mask but this time it’s from a different range. All the masks I’ve been doing so far have been from their “I’m Real” range (click HERE to see them all and my last mask next week will be from the same range) but today’s mask is from the “Pureness 100” range. This one is another pearl mask just like the first one I tried. I was curious to see if and how they would be different. I wasn’t too impressed with the other pearl mask so I was really hoping this one would be different.

Tony Moly Aloe Sheet Mask Review

So far the mask’s I’ve been trying out lately have to do with brightening and clearer skin (check out my other Tony Moly mask reviews by clicking HERE). However, today’s review is on a mask that is supposed to moisturize the skin. I don’t have very dry skin but it can get drier at certain times of the year and depending on the types of products I’m using (e.g. using lots of acne products can actually dry out your skin). Right now it’s the change in weather that is making my skin look a bit more dry and dull so I thought it’s the perfect time to try this mask out. I have to say, this mask, out of the Tony Moly masks I’ve tried so far, has surprised me the most and could quite possibly be my favorite yet.

Tony Moly Seaweed Sheet Mask Review

Today I’m writing yet another review on one of the Tony Moly sheet masks I purchased recently. I have written two other reviews already which you can check out HERE. My third review is on their Seaweed “Skin Purifying” mask. I’ve tried other masks that help to purify the skin before, and loved them, but I don’t believe I’ve tried any with seaweed before. I was very interested in seeing how this mask performs and I’m happy to write that I was very impressed.

Tony Moly Makgeolli Sheet Mask Review

Recently I purchased some facial masks from Tony Moly and did my first review last week. I first tried out the Luminating Sheet Mask, which you can check out HERE. The second mask I tried out was this Makgeolli Skin Purifying Sheet Mask. As I stated in last week’s post, I wasn’t too impressed with the Luminating mask so I was a little uncertain about whether or not I was going to like the other masks I had purchased. However, after trying this mask I was so much happier and had more faith in this brand. It really shows that you shouldn’t judge a brand by one product because not every product will work with everyone’s skin.

Tony Moly Luminating Sheet Mask Review

A few weeks ago I decided to purchase some new skin care products. I did some searching and decided that I wanted to try some Tony Moly facial masks. I hear all the time how Korean skin care is one of the best out there so I thought I’d try some of these masks out. I purchased six of them (most from the “I’m Real” range) and today I’ll be reviewing the “Luminating” Pearl Mask Sheet. I ordered all these masks off the Ulta website and according to their site this is a “new” product (I didn’t see it on the Tony Moly website). I was a little disappointed because this package already had a tear in it when I received it, so I was worried that all the serum would be gone or dried up, but luckily there weren’t any problems.

Maybelline Master Prime Blur + Redness Control Review

Ok, so, I’ve never really been a fan of face primers. I’ve tried a few over the years and while I didn’t feel that they were terrible, I also didn’t feel like they really did much in terms of helping my makeup look better or last longer. I know that part of that is because certain primers will work better with certain foundations and I guess I never really found a primer that worked well with the foundations I used. Similar to last week’s review, in which my mother purchased the product and then I tried it, this Maybelline product was first purchased by my mom but then given to me. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have even tried this but I’m glad I did.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer Review

I can’t believe I haven’t done a review on this product since I’ve been using it for quite a few months now. For the past few years I have been using the MAC Pro Longwear concealer, but every now and then I’ve tried some cheaper alternatives that didn’t quite compare. I love that the Pro Longwear has such high coverage and even though it’s a bit expensive it really does last for quite a while. One problem that I felt I was having with the Pro Longwear though was that it seemed to make my skin look oily at the end of the day. For that reason I was really considering trying more concealers. I knew I still wanted a high coverage concealer but I also wanted it to feel more lightweight than the Pro Longwear.

Morphe Brushes 350 Eye Shadow Palette Review

For the longest time I have wanted the 350 eye shadow palette from Morphe Brushes and I was finally able to purchase it a few weeks ago. This is probably the most talked about and showcased palette that I have seen around on social media for quite some time. In the past I have purchased quite a few of the single eye shadows from Morphe and fell in love with them. I had heard that the eye shadows in the palettes are even better so I’ve wanted to purchase one for quite some time and figured this palette would be the best. This palette has a wide variety of eye shadows; from light to dark, (mostly) warm to (some) cool tones, and matte to shimmer, while also having a great assortment of colors from a pale white to a vivid orange, a deep burgundy to a dark brown, and everything in between.
