The Fabulous and The Fail

7 Aug

Remember how I show y’all all the new really cool Black Radiance products? Well last week I picked up 2 products to test out. I grabbed the duel ended concealer that I featured in the last edition, and then I picked up a gorgeous lipgloss. One was fabulous and one was a complete fail.

I was so excited about trying out the Black Radiance Impressions lip gloss in Rose Desire. It’s the absolute prettiest lip gloss I’ve ever seen. I wanted to rip the packaging off right in the store. It was that pretty. At first glance, it’s a rich warm almost raspberry pink. The magic happens when you look at it from a different angle. It flashes completely gold! Not gold shimmer but completely solid gold. I was giddy about how amazing this product was going to make my lips look. I stood in the checkout line with visions of beautiful deep pink lips with that gold dimension. I just knew this was going to be my holy grail lip gloss. I get home, and eagerly rip off the packaging. I open it up, and my first though it, “it smells a little funny” not expired product funny just…odd. I could ignore it though because the color was so beautiful. I slick it on my lips and…nothing. I load on more product in hopes of the gorgeous lips I saw in my head…nothing. Maybe it’s the lighting! So I go into another room for some better lighting…nothing. It was nothing more than a super sheer barely glossy slightly pink lipgloss! I was so disappointed. This product is an epic fail.

Thank goodness I am much more please with the concealer I got. I use it in so many ways. The stick side is great for covering my dark marks and acne scars. It’s also really good for neutralizing the color of my lips for my new favorite nude lip. When I use it under my brows, it makes for a nice brow bone highlight. I use the liquid side under my eyes. I don’t really have dark circles, but it perks me up anyway. The liquid side has a certain slip to it that makes it glide on smoothly. I’m so adding this product to my everyday routine. Even when I only wear this concealer and a light dusting of powder, I look polished and put together. This product is fabulous!

Out With The Old In With The Nude

11 Jul

Generally when it’s time for me to remove my makeup, I immediately reach for makeup wipes. But when I have to take off an extra intense smokey eye or a hard to remove product, Clean and Clear Soothing Eye Makeup Remover. Serious this stuff takes off everything. I have really sensitive eyes so it being fragrance free and safe for contact lens wearers was a big plus. It makes removing my eye makeup so easy. But sadly it’s all gone. It was good to me to the very last drop. Dare I say it, I liked it better than the infamous Lancome Bi-Facial makeup remover. So RIP Clean and Clear Soothing Eye Makeup Remover. You’ll be missed.

Swatch of Revealing on top, High Tea on the bottom

But don’t worry I’m not too crushed. I’m in product love with a new product. I recently bought a new mac lipstick in High Tea. Oh sweet Jesus, it was love at first application. It glides on so smooth and it’s not drying at all. It’s a sheer golden color. On its own it provides a really pretty gold sheen that is perfect for when I want to keep things light and simple for the hot Sacramento days. I also like to pair it with a gloss. High Tea + mac Love Nectar makes a pretty baby pink with plenty of gold shimmer that looks amazing with bronzey eye. Or when topped with Revealing Lip Glass, you get a creamy nude that looks great with a smokey eye. If you want to keep things simple just slick any clear gloss over it and it will look great with just about anything. Typing this post makes me want to go experiment with even more combinations. With that said, I hope you all are have a fabulous day.

*The clean and clear soothing eye makeup remover was sent to me through a BzzAgent campaign, but my review was in no way influence by this
