NYX Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe in Glory
Really quickly, because I know this is a long post, I noticed how yellow my teeth are in this post when I was writing it, (I oil-pull, and that really helps whiten them, but I've been slacking) So I tried brushing them with activated charcoal which I saw on Pinterest, and I was surprised how much just doing it once helped!
I used 1 coat of CrowsToes Too F'N Cold over 2 coats of China Glaze Brickstone, topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
Okay onto what I thought, I haven't used the Clarins stuff yet, but to me it's really hard to tell how these types of products are going to work because the sample size is only good for one or two uses, I have a Kabuki brush just like this that I carry in my purse I love it, and am glad to have a new one. I can never find the NYX Glam Lipsticks in any of my stores, I love ALL of my NYX Lippies, and this one is great too! I used up all of the Blow Pro Hairspray in three or four uses, but it is a small can, it smelled really good, like perfume, strong like perfume, you guys know I'm a huge fan of China Glaze, so I was happy to get that, I don't have Brownstone already, but that is because I don't have a lot of browns, it has enough red in it that I think I'll wear it. I didn't care too much for the Laura Geller Waterproof Eye Spackle Hues in Mauve Majesty, I don't really like cream eyeshadows, and when I use them it's to make glitter stick, but this didn't work very well for that, it almost dried too fast for the glitter to stick, so it made the glitter patchy, but went on too thick and gloopy to wear alone. The Betsey Johnson Too Too Pretty sample is nice, I normally don't like perfume samples, so this was a pleasant surprise. I use the headband constantly, I have been meaning to pick one up forever, but keep forgetting, so it was great to get one. I got the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion in this bag, and my April Ipsy bag as well, so I've used it a couple times know, my face feels soft, smooth, and really clean after using it, and it is helping the blackheads on my nose, but I'm not noticing any pore shrinkage, but maybe that will change before I review my Ipsy bag, I'll let you guys know. *;) I liked the Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream, It had great coverage, went on smoothly no beading, I used it instead of base, and was able to get a few uses out of the sample. The Good Genes treatment was Just enough for two uses, not really enough to tell if it did anything. I love Urban Decay Eye Primer potion, and there is actually a lot in this sample, but Sin is weird because it is a pinkish nude shimmery color, so it's great under The Naked 3 palette, but not good under say white, which I use on my browbone a lot, I'm not complaining, but I think I would have been disappointed if I had bought it, because it doesn't work under some colors, and lastly Medusa's Makeup Eye Dust in Helter Skelter, I have wanted this color for awhile, and was so happy to have it as a little extra thrown in! It's a black eye dust with blue shimmer, gorgeous applied great, and stayed on incredibly well! I had a blast playing around with all of this stuff, and was really happy to get the opportunity to play around with a HauteLook Beauty Bag for free, because honestly, I think I will purchase them in the future, there was more than $20 worth of stuff in it, and there was $20 worth of stuff in it, that I really like using *;)
