Recent Beauty Tries
The simple trick to making your eye makeup look better (and bigger!)
I tried some new beauty products recently, and I wanted to do a quick review to share my thoughts!
- Essie TLC (treat, love, color) in Sheers to You. It’s a very sheer, I REPEAT VERY SHEER, pink shade with iridescence mixed in. Upon first swipe I thought,”this is a dud” but after I applied 3 coats, I liked the result. I avoid shimmer in my nail polish entirely, but this is a nice addition to a sheer color. It’s supposed to hide flaws better too, and it certainly does that. Ultimately, I can live without it and actually found that the tips of my nails were a bit softer than I’d hoped.
- fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream. If you heard an angel chorus right after you read that line, it was me from North Carolina. This is great. GREAT I tell you. You know I’m madly in love with the fresh Lotus Youth Preserve with Super 7 Complex face cream for every day. This is an amped up version of that for deeper, noticeable hydration with a rose scent. It’s perfect for winter, dry skin. I’m a huge fan.
- fresh Black Tea Firming Corset Cream. I saw this at Sephora a few weeks ago and it didn’t interested me too much, but then it arrived on my doorstep. So, I tried it. I was expecting to feel a bit more firmness initially, but I didn’t. Ultimately, I compared it to the fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream and that won by a million miles. If you are looking for a firming cream, I’ve been so pleased with fresh that you may like this one, but personally it didn’t blow me away.
Just so you know, I’m on a handful of lists for mailings of new product releases from certain brands. Fresh is one of those brands, so those products I mentioned were sent as gifts, under no obligation to share about them whatsoever. I love reviewing products here as a way to help, and this post was not sponsored.
