Personal Opinion:

I got a sample of this product in my February 2018 Play! By Sephora box, I was very happy when I seen that I was getting this lipstick because back in my December box I got a bright pink lipstick from this brand and I loved the formula but was not in love with the color in the December box. I LOVE the color that I got this time! It is so beautiful, it is a beautiful deep red wine color that looks amazing no matter what I am wearing. The formula to this product is amazing, it does not dry my lips out and it lasts for a long time. I love how creamy and pigmented this lipstick is! When I run out of this sample I think I will go purchase a full size of this shade and maybe even some other shades. I rate Makeup forever Artist Rouge Lipstick in M500-Wine Violet five of five stars!

Personal Opinion:

me.jpg

I received this product in my February 2018 Ipsy Glam bag. I had never used a brown eye pencil before I always go for black, so I was a bit nervous as to how this would look on my eyes. When I first applied this liner to my water line I was amazed at how amazing it looked! The formula is amazing it glides on so smoothly and lasts for a long time. I like the fact that this eye pencil is twistable rather than having to sharpen it. I had never tried a product by this brand before and I have to say that I am impressed with this brand. I find myself reaching for this eye pencil more then any others that I own. I rate TRÈSTIQUE Mini Eye Pencil in Swiss Chocolate five of five stars!

Review Now! Marsk Loose Eyeshadow in Foiled Again

This is a mineral eyeshadow that is very shimmery and metallic. The loose shadow gives high pigment that lasts all day long! This shadow goes amazing by itself or on top of another shadow. If you like loose eyeshadows and are looking for something that is very shimmery then I recommend you try this product!

 

How to use this product:

This product can be applied with a dry brush to create a subtle shimmer on your lid or you can apply it with a wet brush to add drama to your eyes. This can be worn by itself or on top of another shadow. I personally like the way that this product looks on top of another shadow. Loose eyeshadows can be messy, so I recommend doing your eyes before doing your foundation.

Personal Opinion:

me.jpg

I received this product in my February 2018 Ipsy glam bag (this is a full-sized product), and this is my first time trying a product by the brand Marsk. I am very pleased with the quality of this eyeshadow It is very pigmented, and I love the way that it looks on the eyes. This is my first time using a loose eyeshadow, I learned that when using a dry brush that some of the eyeshadow falls on my face, so I learned to do my eyes before my foundation. I like the way that this product looks with a wet brush and a dry brush. The photo above  I used a dry brush to apply the shadow because I was going to work and did not want a lot of shimmer. I love the color selection that this brand offers for their shadows. The fact that this product is cruelty free is really amazing! I rate Marsk loose eyeshadow in foiled again five of five stars!

About the smell:

So, this product of course smells like rosewater. It is a bit strong smelling, so if you are someone who does not like the smell of roses be warned that this does have a strong rose smell. It is not that artificial rose smell, it is of actual rose water which I personally like the smell of. Funny story, when I first used this product I poured a small amount of this product in a spray bottle, so I could try it as a setting spray. I was in the car with my fiancé and I was finished applying my makeup and decided to spray it on my face I used two sprays and the smell filled the car. My fiancé was driving and almost had to pull over he hated the smell and told me to never do that again LOL.

Personal Opinion:

I have never tried a product by the brand fresh, I have to say that I like to use this product as a setting spray because it is so hydrating and makes my makeup look flawless all day. I have never really used a facial toner before, to be honest I am trying to get more into skincare. The smell is very nice, its calming and I like it however it can be over powering. I rate Fresh Floral Rose Toner four out of five stars! The only reason it is rated four out of five stars is because the smell can become over powering quickly.

I received this product in my January 2018 Ipsy glam bag. I had never used a brow gel before receiving this product I usually use eyeshadow on my brows.
