  • Blinc Kiss Me Mascara
    7.0

    Blinc Kiss Me Mascara

    Easy removal and separated lashes

    I first received a sample of the Blinc mascara in a Birchbox. I liked it enough to purchase the full size at $24 from the Birchbox website. I am skeptical of "tubing" mascaras because the ones I have used in the past haven't delivered. This one really does. Once the mascara sets on your lashes, it stays put until you wash it off. It doesn't leave black rings around your eyes either when you remove it. Just splash your eyes with warm water and gently pull tubes off. It'll seem like you're removing false lashes. It's odd but totally painless. This mascara is great if you want a separated, natural lash look. The downside of this mascara is that is isn't buildable. If you are looking for a volumizing mascara that will give you that lush lash look, Blinc is not for you. There is no point in layering the mascara to try to get that volume because once it sets, it is SET. The only other pitfall of this mascara is the price. I was willing to pay $24 for this product because I have been so aggravated by impossible-to-remove-mascaras. If easy removal and precise, separated lashes are not critical for you, I would recommend saving your money on this one. With that said, I think Blinc has a truly unique product that is worthy of its high end price tag.

  • Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint
    10.0

    Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint

    Best lip stain I've tried

    I have the Tarte matte lip tint in shades Lively (a bright fuchsia) and Lucky (a medium/light pink) and I absolutely adore them! I have used lip stains from MAC, Benefit and The Balm, but these moisturizing, yet long lasting crayons really did the trick. They are easy to apply, feel great on my lips and seriously last all day. The other lip stains I have tried either didn't last, didn't have a great color pay off, or they dried my lips like mad. The tarte lip tints do none of the above. I can't say enough great things about these. The matte tints are even vegan to boot!

  • Origins Modern Friction
    9.0

    Origins Modern Friction

    Effective and Gentle Exfoliator

    Another winner from Origins. I have sensitive, combination/dry skin and I use the modern friction exfoliator about twice a week after cleansing. The smell is light and natural and the consistency is thick but very easily spreadable. I use this on damp skin and a very small amount goes a long way. When you add more water before rinsing a luxurious lather forms which makes rinsing quite easy. This exfoliator is effective at removing dead skin and keeping face clear of blackheads and clogged pores. It doesn't feel like it is tearing my face apart which is great.

  • Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Lotion

    I have used this moisturizer from Lancome for years. I have combination/dry skin and this is perfect for me. Previous moisturizers felt too heavy on my skin and were not adequately taking care of my dry patches. This works wonders. It sinks into my skin quickly and feels very light. An SPF is a must for any daily moisturizer if you do not use a separate sunscreen (the less products used, the better, in my opinion). Just 1-2 pumps covers my face and neck. Even though this moisturizer has an SPF 30, it doesn't have that terrible sunscreen smell. The fragrance is very light and does not linger after it blends into your skin.
