It’s spring time again and that means it’s time to refresh and replenish some of our beauty products! Glossybox has again helped me out with that by sending over their March box for me to try out. Last month’s box was great, but this month’s just got even better.
Vine Vera Resveratrol Merlot Moisture Day Cream – I never thought I would ever need to use a concentrated moisturizer on my usually oily skin, but every time I overuse tea tree oil on my blemishes it leaves dry patches on my face. These patches like to stay for days and sometimes even weeks; I usually wait it out but it always test my patience. After only 4 days of using this the dry patches have vanished and I am nothing but impressed with how moisturizing this is without making my skin the one bit greasy or shiny throughout the day.
I Love… Cosmetics Super Soft Hand Lotion – Anything with the word ‘coconut’ always wins me over! I do admit that the initial smell of this hand cream is a bit strange to me but once it sinks into the skin it has a wonderful sweet coconut smell that would actually be pretty nice if it were also available as a body lotion as well. I’m most surprised with how little of an amount you need and how quickly it penetrates and dries into the skin.
Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Large Angled Brush – It’s not that often that I buy new makeup brushes since the ones I have work perfectly fine, but adding a new one into the collection never hurt. I was most surprised about how dense and soft this was for a synthetic brush. I’ve already put it to good use with applying my highlighter and I must say I can see this being a favourite brush of mine already.
Eyeko Eye Do Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner – I love when the products I need come just in time before I actually go out looking for them! For years I’ve been attached to gel eyeliner but decided it was time to make the switch back to pencil and liquid liner instead for it’s convenience. I’ve tried out a few Eyeko products before and have been impressed. I will say I like the precise felt tip, however the claims of being a waterproof liquid liner aren’t even close to being true. It’s still a great liner but not something that could survive a hot summer day.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Chihuahua – This of course was the product I got most excited about since I’ve heard so many great things about it. Now that I have finally had the chance to try it out I can honestly say it’s very much worth all the hype it gets. The formula is smooth, the applicator makes it super easy to apply, and the colour especially is right up my ally of the perfect everyday lippie. I also love the fact that it’s just a happy medium and isn’t exactly a matte or satin finish. I would immediately repurchase this once I run out!
Have you ever tried out any of these products before?
