Recently I’ve been trying out some new beauty products that I wanted to share with you all! Normally I save posts like these for when I have tried and tested a product so that I can give a thorough review but sometimes I buy things that don’t end up making it to the full review round. Often times the most you hear of a product is when I haul it, so I thought this would be a good way to share with you what I think after the first use.
Real Techniques Miracle Sponge
There will definitely be a full review on this later but my initial impression of it is that it’s amazing! I’m a huge fan of RT brushes, so I had high expectations with their sponge; regardless of people’s thoughts in comparison to the beauty blender. It does soak up a lot of product but I love that for when I’ve applied a little too much of something.
Glamglow Thirstymud Mask
San Francisco has been quite chilly lately, which is not helpful for my desert dry skin so I decided to get this for a little pick me up. I’ve heard amazing things about Glamglow so I was eager to sample the hydrating mask. I love the fact that it has no discoloration and is relatively thin compared to my previous experiences with masks. I have found that I need to apply some lotion afterwards, but that’s probably because I only leave it on for 20 mins. I’ve heard that people who leave it on all night have better results.
Glamglow Youthmud Mask
I went into to purchase the white mask, but they didn’t have the sample version so I bought the black one instead. I’m not sure If I left it on for too long (20 mins) or if the mask is just too harsh for my skin, but when I rinsed it off I had red spots on my forehead and parts of my cheeks. They looked like mini welts on my face. I’m assuming it was an allergic reaction that I had and two days later I broke out. I still want to use it, but I probably will apply it as a spot treatment instead of all over my face.
Marc Jacobs Decadence
My last Marc Jacobs fragrance was a little disappointing. I spent a whopping $80 on daisy dream only to find out that it has absolutely no staying power. Maybe it’s the mixture with my body chemistry, or maybe the scent is too light and airy, but either way it made me weary to buy another fragrance. This time I decided to try a stronger warmer scent. It definitely is distinctive but it’s slowly growing on me. The fact that it comes in the shape of a handbag is an added bonus!
That’s it for this round of first impressions! Feel free to comment below on anything that you’ve tried!
