We all know how much I love trying new beauty products, from skincare to makeup. Being very particular & expecting a lot from product means most of the times i’m disappointed. So I have to keep trying to find the best products! Now let’s get into what I finished up & if I will repurchase it again!
Garnier micellar water
If you are a noteblair OG you know my obsession with this product. I just don’t know anything else that works better & doesn’t irritate my skin. I just have to mentioned that I don’t wear waterproof makeup. If you are get the blue one that is specifically for waterproof makeup. I love the pink one. It melts the makeup on top of your skin so when you go in with cleanser afterwards it deep cleanses your skin instead of just removing the surface of your skin. this has been repurchased many many times.
How I use it: Take a round cotton pad, pour a little & cleanse all over your face. I use another cotton pad for my eyes. Don’t pull to harshly.
Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Volume Mascara
There is no mascara like it! i have talked about this mascara for years…I wish i could find a drugstore alternative but how this is formulated 7 how the brush is, makes my extremely straight lashes curled & keeps them dark. If you don’t like clumpy and thick lashes you won’t like it. the drama that this mascara adds is next level. for now I’m using a L’Oreal mascara but for sure I will repurchase it.
How I use it: I add a thin layer on both eyes. after 30-40 sec I go back and apply the 2nd coat focusing on outer corners.
I used this powder until it’s last last last bit & it took me a month to finish it. If you bake under your eyes you know how much product gets wasted basically. I love love love how this product works. It truly sets the makeup however it finishes so fast since you don’t get much of a product in it. an average Maybelline powder has Size 0.7 oz and you get 0.127 oz in KKW baking powder just so you guys can understand how little it is. I would not buy this only because of this issue.
How I use it: empty a bit of powder on the lid of the powder, use a damp beauty blender & take a large amount of powder. make sure under eyes are completely smooth & blended. then apply the thick layer of powder under your eyes and let it sit for couple of minutes. then very gently remove the extra powder using a brush.
SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifie
I expect a lot from a serum & having sensitive skin it is kind of hard to find the best products. This serum claims to be very hydrating but unfortunately I didn’t experience that. For a $100 serum I had such a high exceptions. It just didn’t make any difference in my skin. since it dint work for me I won’t be repurchasing this.
Suggested way to use: Once or twice daily, apply 4-6 drops to the palm of the hand and dab onto forehead, cheeks, chin, and neck. Blend the product into skin. If using in the morning, apply after a SkinCeuticals vitamin C antioxidant serum and before a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. If using with a retinol at night, apply after retinol application.
Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm
You all know I get my skincare tips mostly from Lauren over at the skinny confidential. she was doing a promo on trying out this cleansing balm for only $5 (basically cost of shipping only) So I ordered it because COLLAGEN is everyone best friend. So I ordered to try this one with the highest hopes! every single cleansing cream or balm I used broke me out in one way or another. this is the best balm to take your make up off…It is so hydrating, melts your makeup & gets rid of everything. even waterproof makeup. shortly after I received a PR package from them that had the same balm only rose scented because of Brest cancer awareness. It is one of the best makeup removing balms. This is for sure a repurchase since I have never used anything like it.
How I use it: take a dime size and dot all over the face and take another pea size for eyes. rub it all and then use the wash cloth that comes with it to remove all your makeup. don’t pull the skin just gentle motions. it gets rid of everything. for sure follow with your regular cleanser.
Patchology night restoring eye gels
Truth be told I never used these gels for overnight. I always put them on in the mornings or before makeup. Try to leave it on for 5-20 minutes depending on what I’m up to. Major tip is keeping them cold so they are extra de puffing. It refreshes, hydrates so makeup looks so much smoother & doesn’t crease as much. I love that you get 30 in one so it is easier to use, store & travel with so for sure will repurchase it.
How I use it: Keep it cold and apply early in the morning. go over it with cold rose quartz roller for extra effect. leave it on as long as you want.
One of the first products I tried from this brand was this and the sleeping lip mask which you know I’m obsessed with! Unfortunately the mask was not as good as I hoped it will be. It dries late so when put my head on pillow I still feel how sticky it is. It also didn’t hydrate as much as I hoped for. I do have a dry skin in case you needed to know. My sister has oily skin & she loved using this mask. It suggests to use face cream then this on tip which is too many layers on my opinion. I won’t be repurchasing this product since it just didn’t work as I hoped for.
How to use it: After face cream apply evenly across face. After product is absorbed completely, leave treatment overnight and rinse off in the morning. Use once or twice a week.
L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
One of the best drugstore foundations. I have not used this for actually 24 hours but on daily where I wear my makeup at 8 AM it stays put until night. For my skin I have to set it for sure if not it moves around. It has really good coverage. since i do have other foundations to use I won’t be repurchasing this for now but it is a foundation would love to reuse.
How I use it: I would highly recommend using less & add as needed. Also use a brush to add on face & then blend with beauty blender.
As soon as the sale begun I bought it…I expected so much from this concealer & it delivered! the coverage is amazing, it stays on & blends beautifully. Now on why I won’t repurchase it…I know unexpected lol To begin with because it is very expensive for the amount of product you get. It is $18 with the cost of shipping it ends up being $25. Is it really worth $25 to be honest no! If money is not an issue for you go for it. It is an amazing concealer.
How I use it: I will highly recommend blend after applying as it dries quickly. Start with one are at a time. Make sure your under eyes are hydrated as well.
