Stuff I Have Tried Recently
I have been intending to write this post for several weeks because I have several new (to me) products I have tried recently and I wanted to share them with my lovely readers. I also want to hear about any new stuff you have tried recently that you have loved or hated.
Also from Benefit Cosmetics is Lemon Aid. I have actually had this product for awhile but I forgot about it and just started using it again recently. I have really dark eye lids. So dark that it changes the color of the eye shadow I wear. Lemon Aid helps to offset this discoloration while acting as an eye shadow primer. It's a win win in my book.
Are we starting to sense a theme here? This product actually showed up in my December Birch Box. I was pretty excited to try it but I wasn't overly impressed with it. I can't say I hated it but I didn't love it. Truth be told I couldn't tell a difference when I used it and felt like it was an unnecessary extra step in my makeup routine that I just don't have time for in the mornings.
I was super excited when I saw this Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes mascara. I have always like Great Lash and I love the plastic bristled wands that help to separate my naturally clumpy lashes. So I just knew this was going to be my perfect mascara. Alas, it was not so. The head on the wand is too small and I felt like I had a hard time reaching all my lashes. Also, the formula of this mascara seemed different and would make my eyes itch by the end of the day.
