Personal Opinion:

Me.jpg

I received this product in my February 2018 Ipsy glam bag, this is my first time trying a product by the brand Ofra. I am impressed with the formula of the liquid lipstick it is very creamy in texture and goes on smoothly and does not dry out my lips. I noted in the cons section of my review that this product does not last as long as I would like because I noticed that it looks fine after applying and the after I eat lunch a lot of the product comes off my lips and I have to reapply. It lasts longer than a regular lipstick but have other liquid lipsticks that last a lot longer than this product. I LOVE the color of this product it is a very beautiful berry shade I like the hints of purple that is in this product. Personally, I would buy different shades from this brand I like the overall product. I rate Ofra Cosmetics four of five stars! The only reason it is rated four out of five is because like I said it is not as long lasting as I would like.

Review Now! Luxie Beauty: Blending and shading eye brush 249

brush

This is a double-sided brush, which is personally one of my favorite brushes to have they are so great for traveling with. This brush is so beautiful! This brush is exclusive to ipsy! This is a high-quality brush and you can tell a difference when using this brush compared to low quality brushes

 

About the brush:

close up.jpg

This is a beautiful rose gold brush that looks so beautiful! One side of the brush is tapered so you can pack on that shadow or loose pigment. On the other side is a nice fluffy brush which is oh so great for blending out that shadow. The bristles are synthetic, so no animals were harmed in the making of this brush!

 

Pros and cons:

Pros;

  • No shedding
  • Beautiful rose gold handle
  • High quality product
  • Cruelty free
  • Blend eyeshadow like a dream
  • Packs on pigment

Cons;

  • It is ipsy exclusive, so it is rather hard to find unless you purchase it off ebay

Personal Opinion:

So, I received this product in my February 2018 Ipsy glam bag. This is my first brush by the brand Luxie Beauty and I have to say that I am very impressed with this brush. I was so happy when I seen that I was going to receive this brush because I could use some more brushes in my collection. This brush is a beautiful color it is just eye catching! It does NOT shed at all which is a huge plus! I like how this brush blends out my shadow and how it packs on pigment. I love this brush for traveling I personally love double-sided brushes because when traveling all you need is one brush rather than two.  I wish that this brush was sold online that is the only draw back to this brush. I rate Luxie Beauty blending and shading eye brush 249 a 5 of 5 stars!

 

Where to purchase:

Like I mentioned above this brush is exclusive to ipsy so it can not be purchased online or in store. However I have seen a few on ebay and sites like it.

Both lip products that I got in my box, I am very excited to try so I will be keeping both of mine.

 

About the bag:

bag.jpg

The bag this month, is the basic cotton draw string bag that you usually get in the Sephora play boxes. It has a red headed female on the front of the bag and she is in the shape of a heart which I thought was really cute. At the bottom of the bag it says, “Feel the love” The draw strings are pink in color and very cute this bag is perfect for its Valentine’s day theme.

Personal Opinion:

everything.jpg

I got box #201 I have to say that I am very excited to try all the products that I received in this month’s box. I am really happy about the makeup forever lipstick it is a beautiful wine color lipstick that I feel will look really nice on my lips. I have never used a Jelly mask before so this could be really interesting to try I have also never used a peel gel before, so I am excited to try both of these items. The bright blue eyeliner is a very interesting product I am not sure where I would wear a blue eyeliner, so I could have done without this product however, I feel like it will be nice to add to my collection so if I ever do need it I know that I have it. I may be canceling my subscription to Sephora Play because the samples are very small, I have not decided for sure as of yet. I rate Play! By Sephora February Box  five out of five stars!

Review Now! Ulta & Sephora Birthday Gifts 2018

 

both.jpg

So, if you are an Ulta and Sephora member you get a free birthday gift on your birthday each year! So, with Ulta there was only one option which of course is the one featured in this review. Sephora on the other hand did offer two different options one was from bite beauty and the other was for glam glow. I decided to go with the one from bite beauty because I am really enjoying lipsticks right now and I love to try out different brands and colors.

 

The Ulta Birthday Gift:

ulta.jpg

So, inside you get two products one is a juice infused lip oil in Cranberry + Pomegranate and the other item you get is a Cranberry Pomegranate lip mask. I have not yet tried the lip mask, but I am super excited to try it! I have never tried a lip mask before, but I am very excited to see what it does to my lips.

 

About the Juice Infused Lip Oil:

lip oil

This product applies clear and gives your lips a nice shine. My lips feel very hydrated when I use this product and I really like the shine that this gives to my lips. This product can be worn by its self or over a lipstick.

 

About the Lip Mask:

lip mask.jpg

So, this is a mask that you would apply to clean lips and you just leave it on for 10-15 minutes and it is supposed to leave your lips feeling smooth. I am excited to try this product I have never tried anything like it before and it seems like it would be very nice. I could not find this product on the Ulta website to list in the links below to purchase. So, I don’t think that this item can be purchased at least not as of yet.

 

The Sephora Birthday Gift:

bite.jpg

So, Inside the birthday gift that I picked which is from bite beauty you get a total of four products. You get a mini lip crayon in the color glace, a mini amuse bouche lipstick in the color chai, a sample of the agave lip balm, and a sample of the agave sugar scrub. I am super excited to try each of the products that I got inside this birthday gift.

 

About the Matte Cream Lip Crayon:

This is a high pigmented long-lasting lip crayon. This is a beautiful dusty mauve color, which looks very nice on the lips. I have used this product multiple times and I love the way that it looks on my lips it delivers beautiful color and does not dry my lips out at all! This product has a nice smell to it which is really nice. It does dry down to a beautiful matte color the only fall back that I have with this product is that it does transfer.

 

About the Amuse Bouche Lipstick:

This is a very creamy lipstick that is highly pigmented and very moisturizing to the lips. This is a mauve brown color, that looks absolutely beautiful on the lips as well. I have worn this product a few times and I like the way that it feels on my lips. This product smells very citrusy which is kinda nice.

 

About the Agave Lip Balm:

I have not yet tried this product however, I have read that this product is supposed to be very hydrating to your lips giving you a quick repair. I am excited to try this product because my lips have been very chapped this winter and I can use all the extra hydration that I can get.

 

About the Agave Sugar Scrub:

I have not yet tried this product either however, I have read that this product is supposed to exfoliate and condition your lips. This product uses brown sugar to exfoliate your lips. I have never used a sugar scrub before and I am excited to see how this product will work.

 

Personal Opinion:

I am very pleased with all items that I got as a birthday gift, I am in love with all the products that I have tried so far, and I am excited to try all the ones that I have not had a chance to try yet. I think that this is very nice to be able to get a free gift on your birthday. So, my Birthday falls in February, so these are the gifts that were available on my birthday I heard that they may be quarterly gifts I am not really sure how that works.

Personal Opinion:

I received this product in my January 2018 Play! By Sephora box, and I had never used an eye cream before. I have dry skin however; my under-eye area is not dry, so this really didn’t do much for me.

I like the product I really do, I just don’t feel like I need to use this extra step considering that my under-eye area is not dry or super puffy. I’m glad that I was able to try this product I have heard a lot of great things about this product. I rate Clinique pep-start eye cream five of five stars! I recommend this product to you if you have a dry under eye area and if you have puffiness then I think you would like this product.

Using rose water can enhance your mood. Rosewater has antidepressant and antianxiety properties which is great for your mood.

I am all for natural ingredients that really help our skin and bodies. I really like the fact that this toner is made with real rose water.

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.

  • The smell can become over powering
  • Pricey

Be it a brown sugar body scrub, a milk-infused face cream, a soda-loaded shampoo, or a sake-spiked candle, this brand is full of Fresh ideas.”

 

Personal Opinion:

So, I received a sample of this product in my January 2018 Play! By Sephora box. 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.
