I liked the color, but the product just didn’t really work for me. It both didn’t stay well and didn’t remove well- just smeared. Again, I’m not a fan of liquid lipstick- lipgloss or lipstick, not some combo. If you are a fan of liquid lipstick you might like it better.
-Ciate Londer Wondewant Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner in Black- Pass
I don’t use eye liner, so this is pretty worthless to me.
OFRA Cosmetics- Gold Rush Eyeshadow- Verdict: Love it!
Great color and good staying power. Not too shimmery. I use it a lot.
Overall- the bag is okay, but not the best. I’m not sure it’s worth $10 for some good products and some I don’t care for. I’m nearing decision time!
Beautoniq Beauty Blush Serum- This was not good. Hard to apply, didn’t apply evenly, hard to remove (stained, really). Pass.
Oribe Matte Waves- Verdict: Okay.
I was excited about this, but I found it didn’t have much effect or hold. However, it didn’t make my hair stiff.
MAC Primer- Verdict: Fine
This is a pretty good primer. Not my favorite, but not terrible. I think a few other primers hold better, but this is just fine. MAC makes good product so it’s not a bad choice but I am not sure it’s the best for my skin.
Juliette Has a Gun: Anyway perfume- Verdict: Good
Not a huge scent person but I did like this one!
Kiehls rare earth deep daily cleanser- Verdict: Good
I liked this. It didn’t seem to irritate my skin, or dry it out.
Problem with my July bag- Some of the items packaging was opened.
Solution- a quick call to Sephora and they refunded my monthly payment. Much appreciated and super easy!
Because of that, I didn’t try most of the items. I did try the mascara (it was securely packaged), and the leave in conditioner.
Thoughts: The conditioner was fine. It was light; in fact, when I let my hair air dry after putting it in, it seemed to enhance my curls and waves. Very nice! I can’t say if it made a difference as to conditioning, but it didn’t hurt.
Mascara- it (“IT”) was fine. It went on well enough and I liked it okay. It didn’t seem to hold as well as other brands. I will definitely use it up, but I wouldn’t buy it.
