Absolute Lip Balm
Treat your lips with the ultra-moisturizing Lip Balm from Absolute New York. Lightly tinted, creamy, conditioning formula softens, smoothens, and protects lips for a seriously kissable pout.
Its adorable purse and pocket friendly tin allows this balm to be super portable. I found it to be very hydrating without feeling heavy, plus the smell was very pleasant. This lip balm smells just like yummy grapes.
Sensual and exotic, that’s the effect that Silk Kajal Kohl Eye Pencil delivers. Just like traditional Kohl, but with the modern ease and control of a pencil. Giving a semi-matte finish that is also smudgeable, Silk Kajal Kohl’s soft tip is ophthamologivally-tested and gentle enough to be used on the inner eye.
This sample sized Kohl pencil is really great for sensitive eyes. I wear contacts and sometimes heavy eye liners can burn but this is very mild on the eyes. Overall it is easy to use and smudgeable as described.
A cult favorite, Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer is Dr. Brandt’s quick fix for flawless, photo-ready skin. It is the miracle base to create the perfect skin canvas for long-lasting makeup and well-preserved skin. This velverty formula absorbs excess oil, minimizes pores, blurs fine lines and is resistant to sweat and humidity. Prime, touch-up and treat while perfecting your makeup.
This 0.25 fl. oz sample primer is great. I only have to apply a small amount and it works wonders, minimizes my pores, leaves me matte, and after a full day wear (6 hrs) I am not oily or shiny. It very light on my skin not heavy feeling, I am very happy I tried this primer.
Bigger. Blacker. Badder. Urban Decay’s ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara features triple-black pigments and a deeply nourishing ingredient blend. Perversion Mascara gets you sexy in one stroke, yet it wont quit until you say when.
This mascara has been highly promoted and I am very glad to be able to try it. Its very creamy, with a full headed brush for applicaion.
It also added a lot of volume to my lashes. It wore for a full 6 hrs well without any flaking.
Coastal Scents Forever Blush boats 18 perfectly pigmented, powder blushes with a long-lasting rush of color.
I have heard of the brand Coastal Scents from most social media outlets, but have never tried anything from the brand prior to this sample.
Overall the blushes feel good on the skin, the pigmentation is okay and but nothing I would buy.
