Glam Beauty Board Winter 2014
I was recently asked to participate in Glam's Beauty Board winter program, which involved receiving a package full of new beauty products. Obviously I couldn't turn it down.
Here's a list of what I got, along with my thoughts on the products so far:
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream: I'm a big fan of Olay products, but this is a new favorite. It smells just as beautiful as others I've used in the past, but it's super thick and rich and feels really luxurious going on.
C.O. Bigelow Cold & Flu Soad: I haven't used this yet, but the fragrance is great and I know it'll be perfect for hot baths when you're feeling under the weather. It's minty and has a strong eucalyptus quality to it, which I love.
Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Beauty: I put this on yesterday before heading out to lunch and was surprised by how soft and long-lasting it went on. Nothing about it is sticky, and this particular color is really fun; kind of neutral but at the same time kind of a bright pink.
L'Occitane Shea Whipped Body Cream: This smells like baby powder and is light but moisturizing. It reminds me of going skiing, for some reason.
Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy: A two-step deep conditioner that smells like heaven. I haven't used it yet because I don't shampoo my hair very often, but I'm looking forward to it already.
Eyeko Me & My Shadow Waterproof Shadow Liner: At first glance I didn't think I liked this because it was an eyeliner that I didn't understand, but then I used it and see that it's more of an eye shadow, and it's super easy to apply and looks really pretty on.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' Unknown Pleasures Nail Lacquer in Covet and Technopagan: I'm pretty picky about my nail polish, but this is a good one. So far I've used the Covet and it's an awesome neutral. It has great coverage and dries surprisingly quickly. It's also 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Thicken & Full 3D Boosting Creme: Another one I haven't used yet but am looking forward to, if only for the way it smells.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Blemish Gel: I used to use this in high school and I loved it! The smell of them brings back so many memories. I like how small they are so you can just throw one in your bag to use if you ever end up with a breakout on your chin like I did this week.
Demeter Fragrances in Pistachio Ice Cream: Last but certainly not least--this is my favorite product in the bunch. It smells so good that I want to eat it. The pistachio fragrance has such a sweetness to it that I can't help but feel like a nicer person every time I spritz a little.
Thanks for letting me share these with you! I think a lot of them would make great stocking stuffers (some of the Demeter fragrance sizes start at only $6.00). Do you use any of these products? Which ones are your favorites? Happy Saturday!
