I'm back, after a stressful month of studying and exams :) Hope you are all doing well.
In this post I wanted to share with you the products I have used up during the first half of the year 2014, my thoughts about the products and if I would purchase them again.
First off, I used up two Boujois Healthy Mix Foundation in 'Light Vanilla'. This is my holy grail foundation, I have purchased it again and I do not intend to switch to any other foundation. If I'm not mistaken I used up 2 more before these, I use it everyday because of work. It takes care of my sensitive, oily skin and does not grease up during the day, which is perfect especially in the Summer months. They have revamped the packaging from a plastic bottle to a glass bottle, which I prefer much more and also it is affordable.
An Essence product I used up is the Long Lasting eye pencil in 'Black Fever'. I was impressed that for such an inexpensive product it lasted for so long, I think for a whole year. I really liked this pencil, very pigmented and stays quite some time on the waterline. I may purchase it again if I find it on the stand since this is quite a popular product.
Next is the Colossal Mascara by Maybelline. At first I liked this mascara however it dried out quickly. It has a large wand and it does create volume to your lashes. However, I prefer trying out other mascaras instead of buying this again. To be honest, I was not that impressed.
Last but not the least is a mineral compact powder by Artdeco. First thing that I noticed is that the packaging is reusable. When the compact powder has been used up you only need to buy the pan, all powders should be like this, it saves a lot of money both for the company and for the consumer. In terms of the product itself, the lightest powder still had some colour, therefore it is not a translucent powder. I really hate when sales persons tell me, "yes this is a translucent powder" and then when I open it the powder still has colour, because of this I am not going to repurchase it.
That is all the products that I have used up until now.
What are the products that you have used up?
Until next time,
