Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair!

I have used briogeo hair products before and I wasn’t too thrilled with their stuff. I don’t know what it was that I didn’t like, I just didn’t like it. While I was in the shower I applied this to my hair after I rinsed out my shampoo. I thought the cream was extremely thin and While I was massaging it into my hair it didn’t feel any softer, nor did it feel like it was doing anything at all. I waited around 7 minutes and then rinsed and continued my shower routine. It wasn’t until after I blow dried my hair that I noticed a difference. My hair feels so healthy and super soft. Its extremely shiny and just looks and feels so nice.

Origins Maskimizer Skin Optimizing Mask Primer 

This mask primer spray also came with two face masks; clear improvements and drink up-instensive. I have only tried the clear improvements mask before and loved it so I’m glad to have another sample of it and also able to try a new one. This primer is promised to help make the mask more spreadable and also easier to wash off. It also promises to hydrate, sooth, and boost skin radiance. The scent of the spray is very light and fresh and makes you feel cleaner in a sense. While applying the drink up mask to my face I was wondering how am I going to tell the difference this spray makes, but then I got to an area of my face where I clearly missed spraying with the primer and you could really feel a difference running this over your face without primer. I couldn’t tell a difference with how the mask washed off my face. But I did notice how smooth and soft my face did feel. My face has been peeling from a bad sunburn from the beach and after washing off this mask and primer my skin looks and feels extremely healthy.

Tarte Tartiest Lip Crayon in Latergram

I absolutely love this color, I thought it was going to be too dark but it actually has a really beautiful, neutral, flattering color. Its super soft and glides right on but its also matte. I really appreciate how it doesn’t dry out your lips like most matte lip products usually do.

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine

This perfume comes with a postcard with a breakfast scene on it. I sprayed some of the perfume on it so if I do end up using it, whoever receives it might get a little whiff of the perfume. Honestly this is not a perfume I would personally buy. It just smells like a orange peel, and to charge $120.00 for something I could buy at the grocery store for $5 for a crate of seems absolutely ridiculous to me.

Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial

This is an overnight facial treatments that melts into your skin to brighten and moisturize with wild rose oil. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I love anything and everything rose scented. So immediately after opening this I fell in love with it. This moisturizer does literally melt right into your skin and makes you feel dewy and perfect. The scent is strong but isn’t overbearing. You can really feel the rose oil as you massage this sleeping facial into your skin. My face feels and smells perfect.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Kimchi

When I saw this color I was shocked by the bright color of this lipstick and had a million doubts of this color ever looking good on me. It really wasn’t as bad as I thought and it really grew on me. I wore it to work and got a bunch of compliments, everyone loved the color! Moving on from the color, the formula of this lipstick is wonderfully full of moisture and glides on smoothly. The color lasted me a full work day, which I believe is very impressive. Bite beauty is a new favorite brand for me.
