Becca Hydra Mist & Refresh Powder is a weightless powder that sets and refreshes makeup. It’s formulated with 50% water and glycerin. I am giddy in love with this powder. It has a cool and wet feel when you apply it as if you’re splashing water onto your face. I don’t know how Becca created this or the technology behind it but it’s absolutely amazing. The powder blurs imperfections and fills in pores, it gives your skin an airbrushed appearance. I’ve used this powder to set my makeup as well as a refresher during my day, it leaves my skin silky smooth and has an invisible finish.
Wander Glow Ahead Illuminating Oil is a multitasking elixir that nourishes and primes skin while adding a youthful glow. I’m really intrigued by this product and I want to try it more before sharing my thoughts with you. I’d like to see how it works with different foundations but right off the bat this absorbs instantly into the skin, even though its marketed as an oil, it doesn’t feel anything like an oil. On my tan skin I do see little sparkles up close especially when my skin catches the light but that doesn’t look obvious and it does not show through my foundation. I will continue to use it and let you know my thoughts on it.
Tarte Big Ego Mascara is a ultra black mascara that lifts lashes and delivers fully loaded flutter for up to 16hrs….big ego….big claims. Unfortunately I’m trying to finish up some of my mascaras that I’m currently using so I won’t be testing this just yet but I can’t wait to see if it lives up to its claims.
Ace Beaute Glimmer Shadow Duo is a highly pigmented creamy eyeshadow that claims to be fade and crease proof. I love these shades, they are so beautiful. If your familiar with Colourpop’s Supershock Shadows, they are just like these and is sold in the same type of packaging. Unfortunately for me these did crease, I have oily to combination skin so cream shadows aren’t my favourite formulas. I applied these with my fingers which I do think is the best way to apply it.
Steve Laurant Lip Liner is a traditional pencil that you would have to sharpen. It’s not the most creamy pencil but it applied ok. I do enjoy the shade.
Overall I loved this box, my favourite item was the Becca powder. I feel like I need a lifetime supply of it lol….Have you guys tried any of these items? What’s your take on them? Let me know your thoughts….
