Review: Benefit Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


Along with the new Hello Flawless foundation, I was also sent several other popular products to try out. One of these is their Benetint Lip and Cheek stain. When I first opened up the red box it looks a a larger container of nail polish, but much thinner consistency (than nail polish). Even the brush attached to the lid is reminiscent of a bottle of nail polish. The first time I tried this I was skeptical how a think red liquid would do much.

Up until a few months ago, I did not wear any sort of blush EVER. My cheeks are almost always some shade of red/pink. I find it very frustrating. And if I get upset or embarrassed and blush then it is even more noticeable. *sigh* That issue aside. When I opened the bottle I am not sure what I eas expecting, but would have though that the liquid pigment would have been thicker in consistancy.

Review: Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in Petal
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I recently had the pleasure of trying Benefit cosmetic’s new Hello Flawless foundation line as part of a sampling program. I was sent the entire line of 9 foundations along with several other Benefit cosmetics that I will be reviewing in the coming weeks. I am very fair skinned significantly lighter than I was as a child especially in the summer. And so I am almost always the lightest or one of the lightest foundation shades.

Amazingly 4 of the 9 foundations when applied work for me. And the next 3 shades work for my sister. Only the two darkest do not work for either of us. Before this, I had heard of Benefit, but hadn’t had the opportunity to use any of their products myself as they are on the more expensive side. I hadn’t used liquid foundation in many years as I felt it didn’t mesh well with my skin texure or tone until now.

Review: Epielle Cucumber Cleansing Tissues

Review: Epielle Cucumber Cleansing Tissues
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I first purchased a small pack of Epielle Cucumber Cleansing Tissues for $1 for 30 wipes at Big Lots a few months ago. I needed disposable cleansing wipes and didn’t want to spend a lot of money on them. I checked where they were made as I prefer not to purchase products that go on my skin or are consumed that are made in China. I was pleased to see these were in fact not made in China but in Korea.

I was so impressed the very first time I used one of these! The cucumber scent is light and pleasant. And these take all my makeup off without a lot of scrubbing. I love how clean and refreshed my face feels after just using one and how easily even thick mascara comes off with these. I feel like there are way more than 30 cleansing cloths in this package as I’ve used quite a bit and it still feels half full!

A couple weeks ago while out we passed a Grocery Outlet store and decided to stop. I wasn’t impressed with the grocery selection they had, but their beauty section was very very good! I had been needing to purchase more of these wipes and also wanted to purchase a larger package of these. At Big Lots these the larger package of 60 wipes sells for $2. At the outlet they were $1.99 plus another 20% off so my sister and I each purchased a package.

Review: Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist Twilight Woods

Review: Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist Twilight Woods

Product Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Scent Rating: 1 out of 5 stars

I was sent a Spring Beauty Vox Box from Influenster last month. One of the products I received was from the Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist collection. While I LOVE Bath & Body Works and LOVE their sprays, I HATE the scent I was sent. I’ve absolutely hated and despised the Twilight Woods scent ever since they added it to their collection.

I find Twilight Woods to be too musky and strong of a scent in a very unpleasant way. I was a little surprised that they sent out such a strong scent instead of more neutral scents like Warm Vanilla Sugar. There have been studies done that shows that a very high percentage of women like vanilla scents. Whereas a strong musky scent is much more hit or miss.

Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips
Overall Product Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Pattern Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

I received one package of Sally Hansen’s New Salon Effect Nail Polish Strips in 440 Animal Instinct. I LOVE the idea of being able to apply pretty patterned nail polish to my fingers and toes without the mess, smell, and waiting time of traditional nail polish. However I did NOT like the pattern I was sent in my Spring Beauty Vox Box.

At my local drug stores I see these strips selling for approximately $10. While I think these are a lot of fun I do think $10 is too much for only one set. Also I am frustrated that all these products only contain 16 nail strips. Last time I checked I have a total of 20 fingers and toes. I do try to cut some in half, but these are more difficult to split because of shaping compared to their ‘stickers’ competitors.
