Well, I have really been trying not to buy new makeup…easier said than done! I bought all this stuff waaaay back in February and have been using most of it ever since.
Here is a list of what I got (with links):
Essence matte sun club bronzers This bronzer smells like summer and sunshine that is a plus. That is kinda where my love of it ends. It is just ok. I found that it tends to be a bit on the orange side rather than bronze. It works fine for adding color to my face, but it is definitely not my go to bronzer.
Garnier Clean + Nourishing Cleansing Oil For Dry Skin – 4.2 fl oz So, what can I say about this cleanser to convey how much I LOVE it! I wear waterproof mascara everyday and on the days that I work I always wear waterproof eyeliner. This cleanser takes off my waterproof makeup perfectly and makes my face feel moisturized at the same time.
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily Anti-Acne BB Cream – Light/Medium (2 oz) I LOVE this one too! I recently wrote an entire post singing the praises of this BB Cream.
It is hands down my go to every day base. It is very easy to blend and gives light to medium coverage. One of my favorite things about it is that as it brightens and evens out the skin it still has a very lightweight feel on the skin.
Neutrogena Pore Refining Daily Cleanser Despite the fact that I bought this all the way in February, I still haven’t used it yet. The main reason that I haven’t tried it yet it because we went on vacation to Florida right after I bought it and the bottle warns “Sun burn alert” Because it has an alpha and beta hydroxyl in it it can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
Even though I haven’t tried it yet…Here is what the product claims…”Pore Refining Daily Cleanser starts working on contact to instantly reduce the look of large pores and improve skin’s tone and texture. Week after week, it continually reduces the appearance of pores for clearer and smoother skin.
This dermatologist-tested alpha and beta hydroxyl formula delivers visible results by removing dead skin from your face while smoothing over rough, uneven patches for improved skin texture. It penetrates to deeply clean pores so they appear smaller and less visible. Skin is instantly smoother and more even toned. Minimize the appearance of pores with continued daily use.”
Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Facial Mask Gel Moisturizer, 4.5 oz This is another major winner! I LOVE this one too! I don’t use it every night, maybe two or three times a week, but it leaves my skin feeling so nourished and smooth. I highly recommend this Olay Overnight Mask! It is a bit pricy for a drugstore product at $24, but it is totally worth every cent! It has a nice clean fresh scent that is not too overpowering. As it says in the name it is a gel not a cream and I really like the way it feels on my skin as well as the way it makes my skin feel.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio I actually bought this for my sister. I already have this one and I know that I love the Wet N Wild Walking on Egg Shells Palette. It is a great little eye shadow palette for creating a beautiful eye look. I love these smooth and creamy shadows. She really likes these shadows as well.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Ombre Blusher Ok, so here is the thing about this blush…I really really like this product, but NOT as a blush. When put onto the cheeks it kind of gives an ashy appearance, it isn’t a good look! But when used as a highlighter or an eye shadow it is gorgeous! I love to use it as an eye shadow on a quick 5 minute makeup days!
Of course, I paid for all of this stuff myself. I wish that someone else had bought it for me, that would be nice
