Fresh: Rose Face Mask

I was expecting a stellar performance from this product due to the quality and popularity of the Fresh brand.  It underwhelmed me a whole bunch.  I received this product as sample from Sephora and figured I would give it a try.  It smelled great and had pieces of rose petals in it.   It is gel like, goes on smoothly, and is not clumpy.  It dries naturally so you can forget you put it on your face if you are not timing the length of wear.  I was not happy with it because I did not recognize any difference in my skin.  I used it for about two weeks and didn’t feel like it actually did anything except make my face feel clean.  Let me know if you have used the product before and what you have thought of it.  Leave a comment in the comment section below.

Origins: Charcoal Mask

I love this mask!  It is amazing and I have been using it for years!  My skin looks and feels great after it’s use. This product does not irritate my skin which is a plus because tons of products do leave my skin red, blotchy, or broken out.  This product is thick and messy when applying but stays on the skin and is not watery.  Once the mask is applied you let it sit on your face still it is dry and cracking.  After you wash it off and it does take a bit of time to get off all of the charcoal mask.  After using this for a few weeks I have noticed a difference in my skin although this charcoal mask does not remove all of the blackheads.  This mask works great for me and remains a staple in my beauty routine. What are your reviews on this product?  What are some recommendations of other Origins products to try?

LORAC: Black Tie Affair Eyeshawdow Palette

I ordered this product from Ulta during their Black Friday sale.  I have been trying this product since i have received it and have liked it so far.  I like to experiment with my shades and mix colors.  I am not a fan of dark colors due to my fair skin coloring.  Usually I use the lighter shades for my daily look and will occasionally put on a dark hue on a night out or fancy event.  The shadows on this palette are natural, silky, and have lasted most of the day.  I like how the colors are natural and how the colors work well with a natural look.  So far I am loving this palette so go try it out today!  FYI, I own both palettes and love them!  I use the darker shaded palette for nights out or fancy events. Any other users of this particulate palette on here?  If so, what are the pros and cons of it? Just seeing what others like and love about these eyshawdows.

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer

This is a new primer for me.  Previous to this one I have not consistently used primer as part of my makeup routine.  I went to Sephora and was recommend this primer.  It is very pricy and I took a leap of faith on this one.  I  do like that it feels lightweight on my skin and does not feel heavy.  Honestly I cannot tell if it makes a difference in my makeup application or if it makes my makeup goes on smoother.  It is lightweight and does not feel heavy on my skin.  I will need to use this product more to see how it works.  Reviews of this hydrating primer?  Does it help your makeup routine?

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Waterproof Mascara

My go-to mascara by Tarte is quite expensive so I figured I would try a drugstore one for the time being.  My eyes are extremely sensitive to mascara so this limits me to certain brands mainly ones that are hypoallergenic.  I saw Neutrogena and waterproof in the name and I had to grab this product and try it out.  My Tarte mascara would always run or smudge during the day  or night.  I wanted to try a waterproof mascara to see how it will last during the day or night. I used it for a day and night and it lasted and did not irritate my eyes.  I applied the mascara  I started my day and it lasted until late into the night. There was no smudging or running of the mascara.  I was able to get good length by applying a few coats of the product and it was a bit clumpy.  But all of that was worth it for it to be waterproof and not cause my eyes to be red.  I will definitely be adding this to my makeup routine.  I do not like it as much as I do my Tarte mascara but it comes pretty close.  Let me know your thoughts and experiences with this product.
