Eyeliner, Product review

Okay guys I am truly blown away by this eyeliner! I received this product free from Influenster and honestly.. I didn’t want to love this product as much as I do because the price is $o0o high 😓


That being said, I have tried dozens of eyeliners in my life and I have never found one as flawless as this! It glides on so easily and the precision is impeccable. 



This liner comes double sided: one with a short fine tip, and a longer fine brush on the other which I prefer to use for creating my winged liner. The formula and pigmentation is perfection. It won’t smear and is super long lasting.


Also for all my peeps out there who appreciate packaging just as much as I do..the pen is super sleek and luxurious and also has a really nice weight to it. 


All-in-all I HIGHLY recommend this eyeliner and if you guys have any questions feel free to leave a comment. 💖

Similarities


Both chemical peel products targeting texture and dullness. Both work by getting rid of dead skin cells to promote a brighter and more even toned complexion. Both have a tacky feeling when on face.


Differences


  • Pricing, right off the bat you’ll notice a huge difference in pricing. 
  • The application of The Ordinary stings instantly upon contact and tends to leave my face a little red after removing the product from my face whereas The Drunk Elephant has a slight cooling feel. 

Conclusion


They both work very well but the winner for me is the Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial for it’s non-irritating performance and overall results. 
Best Organic Sunscreen


Mist away the day with COOLA's fresh Full Spectrum 360° Refreshing Water Mist Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 18. This is hands down the COOLEST sunscreen ever made, in my opinion.

First off I want to share a little about the company: COOLA is passionate about creating beautiful product experiences that embody a happy, healthy lifestyle. They believe clean beauty should feel as good as it is healthy, which is why we’re on a quest to develop organic products you’ll love wearing everyday. All of their products are cruelty free, they remain free of ingredients like paragons  phthalates, synthetic fragrance, oxybenzone and octinoxate. Also many COOLA products are vegan-friendly, and are all made in the USA!

wanted to share with you guys, this super convenient, easy to use, sunscreen! I usually will just toss mine in my bag and use it on the go. The formula is ultra gentle. I love that it’s completely alcohol-free because that's so rare to find in a product. It can be misted over makeup during the day for re-application or can be applied to a naked face during the day for continued protection. This spray is so nice and lightweight and just gives you that refreshing clean feeling!! I highly recommend
Beauty blender sponges

I know I'm SOOO LATE jumping on the Beautyblender train, but better late than never. I have used other beauty sponges in the past and honestly the quality really doesn’t compare to the Beautyblender

It puts on my foundation so seamlessly without any streaks making my skin look flawless! I will never go back to the cheaper sponges. It’s so easy to use, simply wet the sponge and squeeze out the excess. Then bounce the sponge on your face and you’ll be on your way to a flawless face. I like to use the tip of the sponge for the inner corner of my eyes and the sides of my nose since it’s small enough to get into those areas. I also like to clean after each use for it to last as long as possible. 

As for the Re-Dew Set and Refresh spray, first off let me say I love the packaging. In order to use the spray you must first shake the product so the two phases combine. Then hold it 6-8 inches away from your face as you would with any primer/setting spray and spritz away! I love this spray because it’s nice and light, leaving you a dewy illuminated look. I love how it doesn’t make your skin feel sticky or ruin my makeup.  I’ve received this product complimentary for testing purposes and I would highly recommend.
