Personal Opinion:

I got a sample of this product in my December 2017 Play! By Sephora box, I was super excited when I seen the preview that I would be getting this product. I had been wanting to try this product for some time now but could not bring myself to pay such a high price for a highlighter. Once I received this product and was able to try it out I realized that it was not as illuminating as I had expected. I feel like this product was overly hyped up. I mean it’s a good product, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not super blinding which is what I go for with a highlighter. Maybe it’s the shade that I received. It’s possible that it just doesn’t work well with my skin tone. I would not pay such a high price for this product. I love that I got it and a little goes a long way. It works really well for a beautiful natural looking shimmer. I rate Cover FX custom enhancing drops in the shade moonlight a 3 out of 5 stars.

  • Goes on easy

Personal Opinion:

So, I received this product in my December 2017 ipsy glam bag, and I have to say I was a little disappointed because it’s advertised as a liquid lipstick and it’s not… It’s a lip gloss, which is not bad it’s just when I originally seen it I was expecting a liquid lipstick rather than a gloss. Putting that aside, it’s an ok lip gloss. It’s really sticky, which I do NOT like. The color though is beautiful!! I am in love with the color and I think it would work better for a liquid lipstick though. Obviously, this is a sample size of the product, but the mirror on the back of this product does not even show your reflection it’s very cloudy so unfortunately, I cannot use this mirror on the back of the product. Maybe on the full-size product you can see a reflection. I’ve only used this product twice since I received it in my ipsy bag, and I’m not really impressed how it wears. I’m not really into glosses. I would rather a lipstick or a liquid lipstick. I like this product hydrated my lips, with it being winter and really cold here in Ohio, my lips tend to get dry and this product did hydrate my lips rather well. I give Cosmoholic liquid lipstick in mysterious mocha a 3 out of five stars. The reasoning behind this rating is because it was advertised as a liquid lipstick and it’s actually a lip gloss and this product is very sticky and is not long lasting.

Review Now! M·A·C In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara in Black Extreme  

This maproductscara volumizes, lengthens, and curls your lashes minus clumps. If you are looking to try a new mascara, you should try out M-A-C in extreme dimension lash mascara in black extreme. This mascara has a unique wand to it.

 

About the Wand:

brush

So, the wand in this mascara is a lot different than what I usually see in mascara. This wand is pointed at the end which is supposed to grab and coat those tiny corner lashes. Also, the wands design is supposed  to coat your lower lashes without smudging.

 

Key Claims and Benefits:

  • Ophthalmologist tested
  • Safe for contact lens wearers increase
  • Lengthening 35% increase
  • Volumizing 98% increase
  • Curling 99% increase
  • Lifting
  • Separates lashes
  • Non-clumping
  • Flake proof
  • Smudge proof

Ingredients:

Water / Aqua / Eau, Stearic Acid, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax / Cera Carnauba / Cire De Carnauba, Polyisobutene, Polyvinyl Acetate, Glyceryl Stearate, Paraffin, Silica, Aminomethyl Propanediol, Polyester-5, Isostearic Acid, PVP, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Pantethine, Cholesterol, Panthenol, Kaolin, VP / Eicosene Copolymer, Laureth-4, Nylon-6, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Simethicone, PTFE, Sodium Polyacrylate, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Chlorphenesin, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, Phenoxyethanol.

Personal Opinion:

So, I received the sample size from my December 2017 Ipsy glam bag, and I have to say that I had higher hopes for this mascara. I was expecting more dramatic eyelashes, than what this product offered. It’s not a bad mascara by any means, it just did not volumize my lashes all that much I have seen better mascaras. I feel like this mascara starts to clump if you try to build it up, one application and it does not clump so I like to wear this for more of a natural look. I am not a huge fan of the wand that is in the sample size maybe the full-size product is better, but I feel like the wand does not put up as much product as other brushes. I rate out M-A-C in extreme dimension lash mascara in black extreme five out of five stars. I have to say that I will not be purchasing the full-size product. I recommend trying this mascara if you are in search of a mascara that will give you some extra volume but still a natural look.

Personal Opinion:

So, this is my first time trying this brand of cosmetics I have to say that I am very pleased with this brand. I received this foundation in #23 Natural beige in my November 2017 Ipsy glam bag I was a bit worried when I seen that I was getting a foundation because it is very hard for me to find a foundation that matches my pale skin. However, this foundation seems to match my skin tone very well! I LOVE the fact that this foundation is moisturizing, I have dry skin naturally and with it being winter my skin is even worse, and this foundation does not cling to dry patches. The lightweight feel of this foundation makes it feel as if you are not wearing any foundation. The coverage of this foundation is pretty good, I would say it is a medium coverage foundation it covers a lot of my blemishes. The only thing that I really do not like about this foundation is that there are only two shades available. I give Touch In Sol advanced real moisture liquid foundation a 5 out of 5 Stars! I highly recommend this foundation to you if you suffer from dry skin.
