Since I’ve been getting ready every morning since August, I’ve definitely used a lot more makeup. It’s also let me experiment too.
When I had the chance the last month to try a few new products, I took it. Honestly, it felt different reviewing beauty products, but I had a ton of fun with it!
Instead of just sitting with these pictures and experiences, I figured I’d share them!
benefit • they’re real! mascara
My favorite type of makeup is mascara. It can completely change someone’s face. For me, I feel like it frames my eyes and just makes my face look more polished.
When I had the opportunity to get this mascara in a VoxBox for free, I took it!
To make myself feel official for the review, I took progress pictures and all. It was intense, but I think I did alright?
As you can see, the mascara is pretty nice. I love the wand and how easily it applies.
One thing that I have noticed with it is the mascara smears off by the end of the day. It’s probably a me thing though. I have oily skin, so that plays a big part in it.
I guess I could flip that negative and say it’s nice to clean up at the end of the day too!
If you like the results of this type of mascara or just want to try something new, you can find benefit’s they’re real! mascara here.
Mary Kay • Color Card
A Facebook friend recently reached out to me to try a color card.
She got a quick assessment of my makeup likes and dislikes. I also let her know I wanted to be adventurous in whatever I tried. Maybe I was feeling a little confident after my mascara review.
After a little mailing hiccup, I got to try a new look!
I followed the instructions on the card and tried new application techniques. Honestly, I think it turned out gorgeous. I only wish I could have showed my lipstick off in person.
After looking at these pictures again, the shades of eyeshadows are beautiful. I love how they all blended together. It was almost creamy, but still powdery too.
There’s some blush on my cheeks too. Just can’t see it as much! Isn’t that what makeups about?
Both looks and products were so much fun to try.
If I learned anything about my week of makeup blogging/testing, it’s to just say yes! Often we don’t want to try new things, but it can be a lot of fun. Maybe you’ll find something you love.
A big THANK YOU to everyone that let me try these products out. It was a blast.
If you liked this blog and have any suggestions of things I should try and review let me know in the comments, please.
