|Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder, Revlon Lip Butter, Essie Nail Polish, Maybelline Gel Eyeliner, Elf False Lashes|
Hello! Last week I went to Target to buy several items that I have been wanting for quite some time. I went after my last exam to celebrate summer! I have been using these products a lot over the past week, and I and I thought it would be great to review them for you.
To start things off: Rimmel London's Stay Matte Powder. I picked this up in the shade Translucent because of my extremely fair skin. I have been love, love, loving this powder! My skin tends to get oily, and I feel like when I wear this powder, my skin stays nice and matte for a lot longer than when I wear the powder I had been using. I got it for $3.99. My other powder was around the $30 mark, so I'd say this is a definite win!
Next up, the Elf false eyelashes. I got both the natural and dramatic. I am going to be in my school's musical next fall, and we have to wear fake eyelashes on stage. I bought these because they were cheap, and I thought they would be a good way to practice using the eyelashes before I had to do it in a dressing room getting ready for a show. These are a HUGE disappointment. I watched a video on YouTube explaining how to wear the eyelashes, and I applied them correctly, but the ends did not stay put. They kept popping up and it was so aggravating. I tried waiting longer for the glue to get tacky; I tried waiting less time for the glue to get tacky; nothing seemed to work. These were only $1.00 each, but I would much rather invest more money into false eyelashes that actually work.
Essie's nail polish in "The More the Merrier" has been so great! I have it on right now, and I absolutely love the bright, chartreuse color! I already wrote about it on my blog here, so read that if you want more information. It was $7.79.
Recently, I have really been loving Revlon's Lip Butters. I purchased two colors this winter, and I wore one all the time. I love the way the feel and the way they look on my lips. They are so nice and they do moisturize really well. I picked up a third shade, Pink Lemonade. I love this color! It is really light (I tried to do a swatch, but it barely showed up!), and it's a nice pinky wash of color. I love this for when I don't want to look like I'm wearing a ton of makeup or if I have done bolder eyes and lots of blush and highlighter so I need something light to balance it out. It was $6.49, and well worth the buy! I think I will continue to buy these until I have them all!
One random skincare item I got was Aveeno's Skin Relief Moisture Repair Cream. I wasn't planning on blogging about this, but oh my word! I picked this up because it was the only non-comedogenic lotion that Target had, and I was out of the stuff I usually use. I was bummed about it being in a pot rather than in a bottle with a pump, but I have gotten used to it more quickly than I would have imagined. This lotion is so extremely moisturizing. I think it is absolutely perfect. It stays on all day too, which is nice as I have found that some lotions tend to fade away. I absolutely love this product. It was $11.59, but this pot will take me a long while to work through!
So that's it! I got so many things that I've been wanting to try, and I've loved most of them. Leave me a comment telling me what you think about these products or tell me about something that you've recently picked up and are loving!
