IT Cosmetics – Mini Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil
Full Size Retail Cost: $24
This brow pencil was the breakout star of my June Glam Bag. To be honest when I saw that it was a ‘universal’ eyebrow pencil I was extremely skeptical but IT Cosmetics hit it out of the park with this baby. The shape of the product is an oval so I find it easier to cover the larger spaces of my eyebrow while also being able to get detailed lines along the edges. The applicator even comes with a brush on one side. I have been an Anastasia Beverly Hills customer since I discovered eyebrow filling but I may be switching teams.
Final Verdict: Go out and buy this product now!
Smashbox Cosmetics – Travel Size Photo Finish Foundation Primer
Full Size Retail Cost: $36 (1oz)
This was an exciting addition to my bag this month since this is a primer that I already had in my collection. I swear by it. I do not use a primer every day as I don’t wear a lot of foundation to work. This is my primer when I have a special occasion or a night on the town. With this primer a little goes a long way and leaves your face feeling like a rose petal.
Final Verdict: Totally worth the splurge.
BioRepublic SkinCare – Sheet Mask Trio
Retail Cost – $4.99 ea
Before this month I had never heard of BioRepublic SkinCare and the only sheet mask I had used was the Green Tea mask from Sephora. I received the Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask, Cucumber Breeze Soothing Fiber Mask, and Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask. While I think these masks are great I couldn’t really feel a difference between the Sephora brand sheet masks so these were just an ok product for me.
Final Verdict: Definitely worth a try.
Formula X – Mini Power Source nail color
Full Size Retail Cost: $10.50 – $12.50
Nail polish is always a tough sell for me since I am a total OPI snob. My mom being a nail tech for many years made me this way. This was not my first time trying Formula X nail polish so I was ready. The polish stays on for up to 7 days when using a base coat and top coat. The shade I received was a typical summer pink which I was definitely into. What I like most about these mini Formula X polishes is that they are great to travel with.
Final Verdict: Definitely worth a try but be sure to use a base and top coat.
tre’StiQue – Mini Shadow Crayon
Full Size Retail Cost – $26
This was my first introduction to tre’StiQue products and I love that is was a shadow crayon. I subscribe to Ipsy so that it will take me out of my comfort zone. I am a big powder shadow user and avoid any types of crayons or wet shadows. The tre’StiQue mini shadow crayon definitely changed my mind. It has a smooth application, crease-less wear and the packaging is just too adorable! I receive the shade Marimoto Pink Pearl (nude pink shimmer).
Final Verdict: Definitely worth purchasing.
