My thoughts:

I like to use hair products a little bit more before giving an opinion. On top of that I just cut off 10 inches of hair! So I’m getting used to my hair and my hair is sort doing its own thing lol  So here is a quick take on my experience so far.

The shampoo & conditioner left my hair smelling good . I could tell that it did help my waves stay intact.

The texture spray I think is good for when you want to do a style and your hair is too ‘clean’ . I think this product would help hold a style more and help curls stay … if you have problems with that. It was ok but not my favorite texture spray I’ve tried ( so far anyway) . I could feel the product in my hair and didn’t like that feeling.

What I thought:

Neostrata Sheer hydration was easy to use in my morning routine. The pump was easy to get product out and easy to get the right amount I needed . It has a light scent of sunscreen but went away quickly. My skin did look a little oily when I first applied it to my skin but it absorbed quickly. My skin just looked and felt hydrated. My foundation went on top nicely along with other makeup  and didn’t pill up. I used it daily and didn’t break out.  Overall I think this is a great product that hydrates & protects skin without leaving skin feel greasy.

Sinner or Saint?

Sinner, Saint….or maybe both?

KVDSinnerSaint

Influenster hooked me up with 2 fragrances by Kat Von D. Sinner & Saint which fans have been begging to be brought back. Now, the resurrection is too real: the beloved Saint + Sinner collection has returned more special than ever. The same scents but revamped bottles Kat Von D hand sketched. ( the full sized bottles are gorgeous, these are just deluxe samples)

 

Saint & sinner share the same floral soul , Saint  with a sweet and gourmand twist & Sinner  with a bold, spicy twist. Different experiences, shared heart—these sister-scents can be worn alone or layered together.

Saint Eau de Parfum

Meet Saint – dreamy, romantic and alluring, this candied floral fragrance is inspired by Kat’s own duality. Our fearless leader is tough and tattooed on the outside, but totally sweet at heart! This gourmand perfume fuses jasmine and Tiaré flower top notes with a delicious heart of mandarin, caramel, and sparkling Mirabelle plum. Vanilla, sandalwood, and creamy musk build to the romance of the fragrance, imparting a warmth that reminds Kat of falling in love for the very first time

KatVonD Sinner

Key Notes:
Vanilla, Musk, Jasmine

I liked this for every day wear. I could smell the jasmine. It was light, romantic, floral, flirty.

 

Sinner Eau de Parfum

Meet Sinner — dark, sultry, and empowering, this addictive fragrance is inspired by Kat’s own duality. A little sweet, a little spicy, and undeniably fearless! Cinnamon spices up vanilla and white florals at the heart of the fragrance, while base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and wood form the deeper, darker nuances.

KatVonDSinner5879

Key Notes:
Patchouli, Wood, Cinnamon

Sultry, Spicy, Warm. A perfume I would wear on a date or night out. A little strong for my preference though. I can see why its called sinner, it just puts you in a mood where you might want to be a little naughty.

 

Looking for a new scent?

Apply scents to your pulse points and decollete.

Dab, don’t rub that causes fragrance to fade.

Eau De Toilettes have the lightest scent concentration, making them good for layering.

Eau Parfums & pure perfumes have greater intensity.

When testing out new perfumes, clear nose between each scent by smelling something neutral ( like the collar of your shirt …or those coffee containers they usually have near by)

 

I received these products for free for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

Revlon Lip Products Review

There was a time I never wore lipstick and now its in my daily routine. So whenever I can try new lip products & colors…. I’m game! Never know which color will look good until you try it. I tried out 4 lip products from Revlon that Crowdtap sent me for free.

Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolor in Infatuation

This color didn’t look good on me so I gave it to my mom who likes darker colors. I thought it was hard to get an even coat.  only wore it for a short amount of time and it started to get patchy. I do have another color in the formula from this line and I love it. The applicator is soft & easy to apply the lip color.

There are 16 shades to choose from.

 

 

 

Revlon Kiss Balm in Strawberry

These balms are infused with natural fruit oils. I received strawberry and it smelled delicious!  The colors is sheer and you can build it up a little bit without leaving your lips feeling gross. Its easy to put in your pocket or purse when on the go. Leaves lips soft, hydrated , & kissable! Plus they have SPF in these for extra protection.   The other options: tropical coconut, crisp apple, sweet cherry, juicy peach

Revlon Kiss Balm Strawberry

Revlon Ultra HD Metallic Matte in Gleam

Revlon Ultra HD Metallic Matte

This lipcolor Gleam is not matte so its weird its called that. It has a nice shimmery look and isn’t sticky on the lips. I also like that its hydrating. I really like this color on me and the shimmer just adds a nice touch.  The applicator is soft and makes it easy to apply.

There are 8 shades to choose from.  Flare, Glam, Dazzle, Glitz, Gleam, Glow, Luster , Shine

 

 

Revlon Super lustrous lipstick in Black Cherry

This formula goes on smooth & feels great on the lips. Like the first color I shared its too dark for me. Its pretty , just not for mre. I think this is great for Fall/Winter ( just not on me) I gave this one to my mom as well.  Its felt nice and hydrated on the lips. I do have a few other colors in this line and love the way they feel on and the color looks great on. There are about 54 shades to choose from!

Revlon Face Products Review

Crowdtap sent me 4 Revlon products to try out . I received 2 primers, insta-blush, & a 4-in-1 blending sponge.

RevlonFaceProducts

Revlon Photoready Brightening Primer

  • Brightening pearls illuminate and even out skin tone
  • High Definition Filter Technology captures and transforms any light, blurring and softening flaws for a perfected, app filtered look
  • Helps to keep makeup in place all day
  • Works on all skin types

Revlon Photoready Brightening Primer

Revlon Photoready Pore Reducing Primer

  • Mattifies shine
  • Minimizes pores
  • High Definition Filter Technology captures and transforms any light, blurring and softening flaws for a perfected, app filtered look

Revlon Photoready Pore Reducing Primer

I wasn’t a fan of these primers. First off they have a weird smell, sort of like a glue smell.  Once I applied the primer and put my foundation on top , my foundation would settle in my pores more and make them more prominent. ( no beuno)   My makeup  would pill up in some places.  I then used a little less product and would put a little on my nose and cheeks. Putting a little bit seemed to help but only on my cheeks. I will continute to play around with it and see if I can make it work but as of now, I don’t think the primers are items I would buy.

4-in-1 Blending Sponge

This uniquely designed sponge Applies, Contours, Corrects, Blends for a flawless look

Revlon 4-in-1 blending sponge

I really like the shape of this sponge because it can be used different ways & fit in different spaces. My favorite part is the tip of it because it can easily go under my eyes , around my nostrils, & around lips so easily.

Revlon 4-in-1 Blending Sponge

Revlon Insta-blush in Nude Kiss

This is a cream to powder blush formula that adds a nice touch of color. Its blendable & natural looking. I wasn’t sure about the color at first when I opened it up and then swatched it. When I applied to my cheeks it added a nice natural color, like I was sun-kissed.

 

Revlon insta-blush Nude Kiss Before After

Left : Before  &  Right : After

Revlon Insta-Blush

 

It being in stick form , its easy to throw in your purse or makeup bag for when you are on the go since no brush is needed .  I’d definitely check out other colors in the insta-blush. There are 4 colors to choose from Nude Kiss, Candy Kiss, Berry Kiss, Rose Gold Kiss.
