Skinfood Premium Touch Pearl Brush
Is it weird that I started wearing make up only in my senior year of high school? haha! I feel like everyone starts experimenting with it so much more earlier than I did. I only started wearing it because I wanted my grad picture to look perfect. Lasts forever, you know? Anyway, after that time, my interest in makeup started to intensify and I wanted to try more and more. Thus the want to try out different ways to apply. Since I was literally just starting out though I wanted to get cheaper product so when I’m testing I don’t have to ruin expensive products.
I was eying the MAC 187 stippling brush but I didn’t want to plop down the cash I didn’t have for it. By chance, I saw this brush while I was ordering some Skinfood products to try out and I thought, “Why not? It’s affordable..” I saw why not later LOL.
If you’re just using it to buff on some powder I think it’ll be alright. I was using it to stipple on liquid foundation though and the more I used it the more annoyed I got. Initially it was okay but then little pieces of the hair started sticking on my face. I washed it a couple times and it never seemed be to be white as it was before. For some reason one day the ends of the hair turned green …. What the hell, right?
I thought maybe it’s because I stuck another brush with it to soak and somehow it affected it. I tried soaking it again but alone the next time and for a while longer than I usually leave it. Nope, worse than ever. It looks so bad right now = Like some ratty thing. At least I have the MAC 187 to take its place after that.. LOL ><.
Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser
“This soft, refreshing cleansing foam contains aloe extract that soothes sensitive skin, and cucumber extract to moisturize skin, while cleansing.”
To be honest, I never used this one for very long. If you have dry skin, definitely steer clear of this cleaner.
This cleanser looks a bit like cream when you squeeze it out but will foam up when lather it up. You don’t need much and the tube contains quite a lot – 130mL – so it’ll last you quite a long time.
The problem with this cleanser is… well.. everything.. LOL. I think it does the complete opposite of what it says in the description. As soon as I rinse this off it feels like every single trace of oil is taken from my face. I know if you have an oily face you would hope your cleanser is able to clear the excess oil. However, I think this goes even further than your expectation to the point where your face is screaming at you to hurry up and put some sort of moisturizer back on asap.
You know when you put on peel-off masks and your face feels all tightened? I would probably equate it to that feeling.. LOL. I’m not a fan, can you tell?
I can’t believe they’re recommending this for sensitive skin.. I’m pretty sure your face would end up all red if you don’t slather on a bunch of moisturizer on after using this =
Skinfood Cocoa Lip Balm
I don’t really own lip balms because I don’t like sticking my fingers into the pot and putting them on my lips. The cute little tin pot made me buy it >_>! I ended up leaving it at home and putting it on before I put on my makeup when my hands are just washed.
Since it’s been so long I don’t remember the scent exactly, but it was a pleasant one. The lasting power for this was what made me like it the most. I’m always on the lookout for a good lip product because my lips get dried pretty quickly and I need something that will keep my lips nice and soft for a long time. When I use this I notice that I don’t need to keep reapplying it like I usually do with my lipglosses. Even chapsticks don’t do as good as this lip balm. Definitely a nice little product to keep in your pocket while you’re out. Too bad it’s not sold no more : (((
