youtube made me buy it...beauty reviews
the body shop camomile silky cleansing oil: kate from ghostparties has raved about this many times and this post was recently posted after I already purchased it and I now see why it gets so many posts from her.
This is meant to be a make-up remover or pre-cleanse in a double cleanse routine. With hopefully some heat heading our way I know my make-up after a long day at work feels melted into my skin and I want to wash my face many times I figured this would be good at helping that feeling. First off it smells amazing and it really light on the skin despite it being an oil it washes off with water so easily and your skin if left baby soft. All my make-up feels to be removed and my cleanser is left with a clean canvas to do it's job. It is new to me but already and instant fave.
the body shop lip line fixer: the style spy is to blame for putting this in a round-up I was already looking for a clear lip liner but could only find ones that were available in the states or were to expensive/ I didn't like them when I saw them. I picked this up and I don't know if mine is bad but it doesn't seem to do anything it drags on my lips and red lipstick still bleeds on me. I was thinking this was going to be the best thing since sliced bread it has rave reviews everywhere just not from me...
the body shop honey bronzer: essie from essie button raves about this all the time and I have watched many a videos where girls contour and look amazing so I figured it was something I needed to try my hands at. There isn't really anything wrong with this bronzer it is super cute and great for pale skinned girls. I just never got the hang of contouring I keep it in my drawer and every so often I will see it in a video whip it out and quickly put it back in the drawer it is not something I can work in my morning routine.Youtube always make me think I can do my make-up better than I actually can this bronzer is my big reminder...
revlon colourburst matte balm in elusive: kate from ghostparties posted this in a round-up it looked like the nicest color ever and I was looking for a neutral pink. First all I have banned myself from matte products I really don't like how they feel on my lips nor how they look! This color is so nice on the back of your hand but I found it to look chalky and pasty on my lips. I cannot seeing myself wearing this out of the house let alone keeping it for much longer total bust for me.
dove refresh + care dry shampoo: essie and kate have both raved about this in monthly favorites videos (can't find the exact links) so I tried it since I used dry shampoo every other day. For me I find this to be very sticky in the hair and does not help with oil control. I have used it to add texture to my hair when doing up do's and it works well for that but does leave your hair very static so an up do's is all it is good for... I can't see myself finishing the can.
anyone else ever bought something you saw online in a blog or video?
