Once in a while, I actually use up products from my hoard. It always feels like a bit of an achievement so I wanted to share it with you.
Sephora Eye Masks - These are a nice little treat for the under eyes. They don't do anything remarkable, but they do feel refreshing on the skin. They're a nice little travel companion. If I had to choose a favourite between the ones I've tried (Green Tea, Lotus and Rose), I would have to say Rose. No particular reason, really. They all felt the same. I do want to try the Avocado eye mask next though.
Phyto - I have finally gone through the last of the Phyto products I own. I went on a bit of a Phyto bender a couple years ago and bought 3-4 different products from the brand. The Phyrodefrisant is an anti-frizz serum that does help prevent my hair from frizzing out; however, I would not repurchase this again because the packaging was awful. The aluminium tube isn't really conducive to hold such a liquid-y product, so it was quite messy to apply. Phyto 9 is a great cream for dry hair! I'd definitely pick this one up again (just wish they would change the packaging).
Living Proof - The Perfect Hair Day collection is one of my favourite hair care lines. They smell great and they perform well. I really like using the styling treatment after washing my hair. It helps give me a great blow-out that lasts all day long.
DHC - I wish I picked up more products from DHC while I was in Japan because if their cleansing oil is an indicator of how great their product line is, I am missing out! The Deep Cleansing Oil removed all traces of makeup on my skin & left my skin feeling smoothed and hydrated. I still have one more bottle left and I would repurchase it in a heart beat.
Hourglass - I wouldn't say that I'm picky with my brow products, but I do want something that is easy to apply & that will last all day long. The Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil (in the shade Dark Brunette) is one of my favourite brow products because it fits the bill. It's a wedge shaped pencil that fills the brows in quickly and it stays put all day long. It's a bit pricey ($37), but it does last quite a few months with everyday use.
Benefit - If I don't use a brow pencil, I will usually always use a brow gel. I have such unruly brow hairs that if I don't tame them, they will run wild & free. I like the Gimme Brow because it has a small brush for precise application and it has fibers to aid in subtly filling in brows. Plus, no crunchiness!
NARS - One of my favourite concealers is the Creamy Radiant Concealer (in the shade Ginger) from NARS. It's great for under the eyes and also over blemishes. It's a drier formulation but it still blends beautifully to conceal / brighten problem areas.
Lancome - Some of my favourite mascaras come from Lancome. My ultimate favourite is Hypnose Doll Lashes. Not only is the cone-shaped wand a breeze to use, but the formulation separates, lengthens and fans out my short stubby lashes.
Essie - Set in Stones is a beautiful silver glitter polish. The downside is that it dries up so easily (at least for me). This is the second bottle that has shrivelled up before I could use it up.
