I love to carry lip gloss in my purse, but I’m the type that misplaces everything, and paying for high end glosses every time I lost one got expensive - so I’ve tried quite a few different drugstore glosses and found that the NYX Mega Shine lip gloss is one of my favorites.
The gloss goes on smoothly and while it’s kind of thick, isn’t as sticky as some other drugstore glosses I’ve tried - I recommend using a lip scrub before application though! This will just make it go on smoother. Also, the angled applicator makes it easy to apply - I also got each one for under $5!
What’s your favorite drugstore lip gloss?
#funfact : 9/10 scientists agree that the @covergirl Healthy Elixer Vitalist Foundation is THE BEST foundation on the planet!!! The one who dissented, really just likes that less than flawless look - different strokes for different folks!
I received these masks courtesy of @influenster earlier in the week and already had the chance to use them both. Wanted to share my personal thoughts on these masks:
The mailer only included 2 masks, one Hydrate + Glow and one Hydrate + Firm.
Both masks had a chemical type of scent upon opening the wrapper but weirdly, I didn't notice the scent once the masks were on. Also both masks were SUPER saturated with product, almost drippy like and felt sort of sticky to the touch. Once the masks were off after 15 minutes, there was a lot of product left on the skin to massage on to my face and I did enjoy the rather cooling sensation I felt on my skin.
Since I can really only give you my opinion on wearing each mask once, I can say that my face felt a little hydrated and soft with the Hydrate + Glow mask and with the Hydrate + Firm, it also felt soft but can't say it felt any firmer with just one use. One downside is the nose coverage was very small with the shape of the mask. The shaping was a little off. Overall, I will give these a second chance and may pick up more at the drugstore since I love face masks and can't really form an opinion on these just yet. Ingredients wise, they have agave extract, collagen, hyaluronic acid, Vitamin B3, and Vitamin E which are all great for the skin.
*I received these products #complimentary from @influenster and @ponds for testing purposes. All opinions are my own and honest. •
