Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. All opinions are my own.
Also available in SPF 12, 30, 50!
With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12-hour moisturization when out in the sun.
I have to say that I really enjoyed using this product. It has been pretty sunny outside lately and I used this product because my legs have been really dry and this was the first thing at hand. I only put it on my legs and went outside and to my surprise it really protected as well as being moisturizing. I got a lot of color on my face and arms but my leg were still as pale as day! I have liked using this product and am grateful to Hawaiian Tropic for sending this product in the Vox Box and giving me an opportunity to try it out I really think I will be re purchasing.
Today I was watching a video on youtube about winged eyeliner and was suprised when KlairdelysArt was making an ACTUAL wing! I decided to try it on myself and this is what came out
Excuse my messy eyebrows!
Watch the video and try it out for yourself :D
Today I received my June MyGlam Bag, pretty happy with the contents. I will post more info later today :D
Hey guys! Long time no talk. Ive been super busy but im back with big things. I just received a Mary Kay vox box from influenster. This post is just going to be my initial thoughts Please stay tuned for more!
I couldnt be more excited for all the products in this box. They are all things I use every day aside from the gloss. All the products came in beautiful colors that seem to go together well. I am going to try to make a look out of them all together.
The only color that threw me off gaurd was the gloss in Mango Tango. In comes across bright in the tube but actually sheers out to a wearable orangey coral on the lips. ( I think orange lips is a recent trend) The texture is great though! not to sticky or thick, just enough color and smells great!
The brushes I received were pretty good. Standard quality. The powder brush is slightly scratchy. Not too much to say here except for I need to do a wash test before telling you anything about lasting power.
Mascara is super black and havent gotten the chance to try yet but the brush is cool. It looks small enough to really get at the root of my lashes without making a mess.
The cream eye color is a gorgeous gold. I was hoping for more color because I like bold looks but gives a subtle shimmer and glow and is totally natural and wearable.
Shy Blush reminds me of Nars orgasm. It is a pink with gold shimmers. The powder is very smooth and glowy on the skin. With a price tag of 12 dollars it is a great and affordable dupe for Nars.
Loose powder is pretty standard. I detect a hint of shimmer, not as finely milled as I would have liked.
The Bronzing Powder is a light color with shimmer. I probably wont be able to contour with this, which is what I usually do with bronzers. Still really nice though and can be used to completely set the cream eye color for super long wear.
And Finally the Jet Black Gel Eyeliner. It is indeed jet black. I rubbed my hand several times and the stuff would not budge. The only thing I dont like is the brush that comes with it because I like to do wings and it is not precise enough.
Again, keep checking for a look and more in depth usage reviews. Thanks beauty box lovers!
Okay so finally! I got around to taking pictures of the June My Glam bag. To simply put it, I was very happy with the June bag. Lets get right into it:
Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen
This felt tip black eyeliner come slightly on the sheer side when first applying, it takes two or three passes to get a very deep black color. But when they say permanent they really do mean it.This stuff really stains the skin. When using be sure to use some sort of primer underneath to minimize this. Overall this liner glides nicely and I really do enjoy it.
NYX Round Lipstick in Orange Soda 588
Another full size product makes this bag really worthwhile. These NYX round lipsticks are creamy and smooth. I have not tested its staying power yet but the company claims that it is long wearing. The only downside for me is that they sent me a color that I dont feel is wearable with my skintone and features. It is a very light creamsicle orange. I will find some way to make it work though, I can always same some pink gloss on top and make a subtle nude lip.
frizz Nourishing Styling Cream
I have found love in a hair product. Enough said. I comb a nice amount of this product into damp hair and style as usual first by blow drying my hair then flat ironing it smooth. This makes this process so easy and even makes my hair look great when I dont straighten it. It just smooths everything out and makes my hair luxuriously smooth. Love Love Love!
Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Moisturizer
This is the only product I am not as exited about but only because I am very particular about the creams that I use on my face. I have a tendency to break out with new products. However I did try this a few times and I have to say that is is highly moisturizing. The moisturizer is a thick almost gel consistency and has a plesant smell. I havent noticed too much irritation in my skin after using it but in the morning my skin was a little bit oilier than usual. It is an alright product.
I dont like to get into the dollar value too much of the bag because I believe money is not the important factor, it is more if the bag is worth it to me and I enjoy the products that I get. MyGlam was very generous this month and gave great products. I know that not all bags can be a winner with everyone but I appreciate their service. I say this bag is a winner to me!
I said I would have the glam bag up here but I dont so shame on me. I have been trying the products though so hopefully when i do get it up here I can some things to say. I also got a shipment from hautelook containing The Balm products so maybe I will have some reviews of those too. Fingers crossed
These are my beauty army picks for the June box. I always do my quiz several times to see everything i can possible get, then I retake it a few more times and try to get everything I like, in one selection window. I think I did a pretty good job. I was given the option of a mystery sample so I wanted to see how that turned out. I again have 7 samples this month because an item was left out of my box last month and they did have the same item in stock. The customer service really was great as well. I am not going to go into too much detail about each product and will save that for my follow up post when I receive the box.
