Makeup Hits and Misses

I gotta be honest, I have a problem.
A big one. I'm a makeup junkie.
I have been on a roll with buying new products and trying them out.
What can I say, it always fits, right?

Here are my makeup hits and misses.


Dry Bar I Heart Road Trips Kit
This kit comes with The Chaser Shine Cream,Triple Sec, 
and Mai Tai Spritzer.I'm loving each of these products and I love the way
they smell.  When I want some shine, I use the cream. When I need dry shampoo,
 I reach for the Triple Sec (it makes my dirty hair smell so good!). On the days, I wash my hair, I spray the Mai Tai Spritzer on my wet hair. Totally makes my curls look amazing. 
For $32, this kit is worth it.



bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer
I just purchased this concealer and so far I like it.
It doesn't cake and gives really good coverage.


L'Oreal Volumizing Miss Manga Mascara
Was not a fan at all. The mascara did nothing to add volume to my limp lashes. 
Oh and after about two weeks of use,the bottle was empty. 
I don't wear that much makeup, ok maybe I do.



Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover Lotion
I liked this at first, thought it removed my waterproof eye makeup well.
But after a few weeks of using it, I realized it was drying my eye lids out.
I mean, I actually had dry spots on my eye lids. Took me some time 
to figure out what was causing it and it was this stuff. As soon as I stopped using it, 
my eye lids went back to normal. 



Living Proof  'No Frizz' Humidity Shield 

I'm not really sure how I feel about this stuff.
It doesn't seem to help my frizz and on some days,
I feel like my frizz is worse with it. However, I like the volume it's adds to my hair.
I spray a little bit of it in the morning and let it dry a bit. Then I add some hairspray.
It does add body to my hair but doesn't seem to help the frizz at all.

Living Proof


Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Foaming Mask

I like how it tingled on my face but I didn't notice any change in  
in my skin at all. I don't think it did anything actually.


That wraps up my makeup hits and misses.

 I will be doing a review off my Play! by Sephora box
in the near future. I just received it. Took a while to 
actually receive (3 weeks to be exact) the box from when 
I was charged for it. They do not offer express
shipping on the box which I thought was

  1. I am surprised the Voluminous was a dud they are usually pretty good. Bummer.

  2. I still haven't tried any dry bar products - but since you liked the travel kit - I need to get that too!! I haven't tried the misses or the undecideds' so I'll skip on those LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Good to know all of the misses and undecided products, that way I don't waste my time on them! That Dry Bar kit seems perfect, definitely going to have to look for that!

    Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. ok this is a great list! some of these i was thinking about buying and glad to know they were prob not worth it. i have been wanting to try the living proof stuff too - but for the money, it had better be outstanding! happy monday girl

  5. my skin hates all neutrogena products. i tried using their sun screen and my skin freaked out and it gave me hives!

  6. i have been curious about that eye stuff...that is crazy!!

  7. You have me interested in the dry bar kit. Love that it is travel size.

  8. Bummer aout the makeup remover lotion. I have heard mixed opinions.. some people seem to love it and others really hate it. I probably will skip it for now!

  9. I tried that Loreal mascara too and hated it, such a waste!! These reviews are so helpful for my future purchases! lol

  10. I support your beauty habit, because now I know what to skip over when shopping!

  11. This is such a cute post! Nice to know week and strong points♥♥

  12. The Maybelline 24 hour lip color is my new hit! And it does stay on..I forgot to take it off the other night haha

  13. I wish I was into make-up! or maybe it's good I'm not otherwise I'll be broke! I did get some of those face wipes (but I got the target brand) after reading one of your posts. Trish - tales from trish

  14. that's a bummer that the mascara wasn't good! Loreal has my favorite mascara of all time. And I find that frizz serums are really hit or miss generally speaking!

  15. I should try that bare minerals concealer. It's so hard to find a decent one.

  16. That DryBar kit is everything! And I feel the same way about the Living Proof line - I was so excited for it and felt it was a huge let down :-P

  17. Fun. :) I have been switching all of my products over to organic and natural ones for the past few years. I love trying new things from brands that I love. I'm super excited to try out Jessica Alba's Honest Beauty. We use the Honest stuff for our home, I would love to try the makeup too! :) XO -Alexandra

  18. Oh weird about that eye make up remover! At least you figured out what it was! I haven't tried the DryBar stuff yet but that kit sounds fun! Loreal usually has decent mascara so bummer there.

  19. I'm glad to hear you liked the Dry Bar kit - it's been on my wish list forever! Have you tried Living Proof S&C? I recently started using it and LOVE it.

  20. I like other Living Proof products (shampoo/conditioner/dry shampoo/five styling thing) but haven't tried the one you have here. Not planning on it.

  21. That Dry Bar kit is only $32?! That's tempting! And that's so weird about the eye makeup remover. You would think makeup remover LOTION would be hydrating, not drying! So strange.

  22. I totally need to find a dry shampoo AND I could always use a new concealer. Thanks for sharing! Boo on the misses!

  23. I heard that mascara wasn't very good. That's so frustrating! I am all about Mai Tai smelling anything though!

  24. These look great!

  25. that mascara only lasted 2 weeks?! i wear mascara every day and i have never had one even run out, that is ridiculous.
    i don't have a makeup problem.. but i do have a shopping problem lol

  26. I love to hear hits and misses, it makes it so much easier to pick out new things! Ive never tried any of those but I'll have to try some of the hits!

  27. The Mai Tai spritzer sounds awesome! I also have the Manga mascara and while it doesn't provide drastic results, I don't hate it either for regular everyday use.

  28. so good to know about that bare minerals concealer!! i have always loved their stuff but haven't tried that!!


Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you!
