Welcome to November's edition of Favorites and Fails!
Let me show you what I loved this month:
From left to right:
Clinique Smart Serum Custom-Repair Serum: Sigh. As I've mentioned, I now work at Ulta. This amazzzing serum was suggested by Clinique Brand Rep/my Ulta co-worker, and of course I love it.
Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner: Holy grail!! This is an all-in-one product that is to be used right after you wash your face. I put a tiny bit on a cotton round and swipe it all over. It cleans pore, tightens them, evens skin, and on and on. Just buy some!
The Body Shop Vitamin E Skin-in Moisture Sleeping Mask (on the right in the photo below): This is another line that I have discovered since working at Ulta. I love the cleanser and the moisturizer and this overnight mask, too. It has a heavy cream consistency that feels so luxe and soothing on the skin.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask (on the left in the photo below): I heard of this through numerous reviews and finally bought it. I love the scent, but it is such a rich product that I actually got a pimple the first time I used it - ugh! I will keep trying, however. The gel-like consistency fools you into thinking you need more product than you actually do.
Essence Lash Princess: This is another product I bought based off reviews. For under $5, this is a great mascara. If you need one, try it! It's black, it's not waterproof, and my eyelashes look amazing!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick: I am not the biggest fan of this formula - it does NOT last forever - but this shade is, by far, the most flattering shade I own.
So, that's it for the good stuff.
Now let me show you this month's Fails:
Ulta Overnight Lip Mask: I am a huge lip treatment fan, and that includes overnight lip masks, for sure. I was excited to try this one from Ulta as it was reasonably priced, but the price point was the only plus for this product! It is sliiiiiimey!!! Feels like baby oil, doesn't stay on the lips, and therefore, doesn't do it's job at all. Buh-bye.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream in Light: This product has a huge cult following. I didn't mind this product enough that I threw it out - it's expensive and I did use it, but if I knew I could've returned it, I would have long ago. This stuff is THICK, like cake batter thick, and my skin just hated it. I felt suffocated! And it smells thick, too, if that makes any sense, LOL. I did use it by cutting it with other BB creams, but I would not repurchase and I would not recommend.
Did you have any new favorites or fails this month to report?
