Loreal beauty sponge first impressions: I read on some blog that this sponge is a dupe for a beauty blender!  It’s not. hahahahah.  This sponge is soft, not as soft as a beauty blender but softer than most cheaper makeup sponges out there.  It has a weird, doughy texture and when you squeeze it it feels like theres gel inside.  Thats probably just something weird I noticed and I don’t think it will affect your makeup!  This sponge applied my concealer nicely and didn’t feel hard on my skin. It’s not a beauty blender but it’s really good for $6!  I prefer this much more than the real techniques sponge and its cheaper!
Maybelline Total Temptation.  It took me a few wears but I like this mascara and what it does for my lashes.  The wand gets a little clumpy and holds too much product when you first unscrew it so you just have to shove it back in to take off some product.  Does that make sense lol?  With a few coats this makes your lashes long and adds volume!  It’s not the most volumious like Lash Paradise but it also separates your lashes making them look long and wispy!  This mascara clumps a little bit but I don’t mind it because it still makes my lashes look curled, long and wispy.  I lovvveeeee a long, wispy, dramatic lash.   I don’t have any more lash extensions and I’m really liking how this mascara makes my lashes look.  I had volumious/dramatic lashes on before so that says something!  This is supposed to have a coconut scent.  I don’t smell it and think coconuts but the smell is different than other mascaras.  Its still weird yet oddly pleasant!
NYX jumbo eye pencil.  I used this pencil for an easy/lazy smokey eye and I loved the results.  I put bronzer all over the lid then I just lined the top and bottom lashes with this.   I gently smudged it with my fingers to make it more smokey / less perfect and voila!  Easy and effortless smokey eye!  This product is super easy to use whether your a beginner or on the go.  These are similar to the Laura Mercier shadow sticks but less creamy.
Vaseline Pink bubbly.  I love vaseline for my lips. This scent is AH-MAZING.  Whenever I wear it I’m always thinking about how good the smell is.  I carry this in my purse for when I need lip balm and want something funner than plain vaseline.
Milani Make it Dewy.  I searched high and low for this spray!  I do dewy makeup to begin with so I don’t really notice this making my skin more dewy. It obviously doesn’t leave my skin matte but my skin doesn’t look much different after applying it.  This does however set my makeup nicely, mostly for a good chunk of the day but not all day.  The smell is nice and subtle but definitely fragranced. The spray feels like it comes out in a horizontal line if that makes sense.  Its not the best sprayer but it isn’t like a garden hose either.  This spray is good, not great for adding more dewiness but I like how it sets my makeup and maintain dew.  I’ve tried a bunch of dewy sprays and haven’t found one I love so maybe thats just the way it is for me and dewy sprays.  I want one that adds more dew but maybe thats not a thing?
