Not a lot of people discuss the products they’re currently on the fence about. Probably for a reason, but I like to know what products people aren’t completely sure about. That’s weird, right? Right. I decided that I’ll start the conversation and discuss the products that I think I like, but I’m not completely sold.
NYX Eyebrow Pencil: my eyebrow pencil ran out and I didn’t have time to run to Sephora to grab another. I have liked other products by NYX and when I went to Target, I decided to pick up their eyebrow pencil. The thing I really like about this pencil is that the texture is smooth and glides easily. However, it rubs off easily and doesn’t seem to last all day.
Kevin Aucoin Curling Mascara: the packaging on this mascara is gorgeous. I don’t know why I love it so much, but it’s sleek, compact and red. And everyone knows I love me some red. This mascara does the job. It stays in place for the day, buuuut, I hate the way it comes off. I think it has a gel like texture and will peel off the eyelashes. Some people may find this nice, as it is easy to take off, but I didn’t enjoy it and found it kind of gross. Yet, it is a good mascara…
Être Belle Liplift Peel: my lips get super dry in the winter months and peel like crazy. I’m one of those gross individuals that has the layer of visibly peeling lip skin (grossssss). I thought this might be a different alternative to my Lush lip treatment. It glides on like a lipgloss. Once applied, you’re supposed to rub your lips together and leave the peel sit on top of your lips before you wipe it off with a warm cloth. I noticed after using I see a slight difference in the texture of my lips and my lipsticks stay on longer throughout the day. On the other hand, I don’t like the feel of the product and it’s kind of expensive. I think I’ll stick with Lush on this one.
Anatomicals Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer: okay, so I think I really like this one, but I’m not totally sold. The other week I woke up with two swollen eyes and I popped these underneath to help the process. After thirty minutes, I took them off and noticed a difference in the puffiness. My skin felt smooth, but slightly too tight as if my skin had been dramatically stretched. I’m going to give these babies one more chance, and perhaps try other products by the brand since their packaging and marketing are so fantastic.
Redken Iron Shape 11: I’m horrific with my hair care and I have been trying very hard to get better at hair maintenance. Heat protectant before and after, I’ve heard, is super beneficial to the hair, so I picked this travel size Redken up to test out. I love the smell of the product. I think it’s easy to work with, buuuuuut, I feel as if it hardens the hair after use. Strands of my hair seem to group together almost as if I used hair spray, which I hate the feeling of. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll repurchase this product, but it was an okay one to use for awhile.
What are some products you’re currently unsure about?
