Products on Trial

Some products are easy to do first impressions on. Is a blush a pretty color with a great formula? Sounds good! Does a lipstick last though a slice of pizza? Fantastic!

Other products take several trials to get a good impression of. I'm talking skincare, foundation, and anything with results that claim to last for days or weeks. I've recently been trying out a lot of these products and I'm preparing a dedicated review on them, so I thought I would write about my thoughts so far and all of the interesting products that I'm testing at the moment!

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer
This concealer has recently been taking the beauty world by storm as a possible dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape. I have the famous concealer from Tarte so I am currently trying and comparing the Makeup Revolution concealer to the Tarte one to see which is better and whether or not it is a dupe. So far, I don't think that they are, but in a good way! I'm really loving the Makeup Revolution one and I just want to give it a few more uses before I do a final comparison.

Klair's Rich Moist Soothing Serum*
I recently became a Wishtrend affiliate and I was sent this serum to try out and potentially recommend. I've been using it daily along with my Hyaleuronic Acid serum from the Ordinary and so far I like it, but I don't think it's a must-have in my skincare routine yet. It does smell really nice, though! I would like to do an updated skincare routine soon and by that time I will have used this serum for several weeks and will have my full thoughts on it.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
My lips have been so dry lately and I always hear great things about this lip treatment, so when I saw it offered as a 100 point perk at Sephora I was eager to try it out. I only used it once and it felt very intensely hydrating, but I want to use it a lot more before it has my stamp of approval.

No. 7 Stay Perfect foundation
I bought this a few weeks ago and I've only used it twice. Twice! I was so excited to try it out but it somehow got pushed to the back of my drawer. Upon getting it home, I think this shade is slightly too dark for me so the first time I used it I was not very happy with how it looked in comparison to my neck and chest. From here on out, I'm using a white mixer so I'll be able to focus on the formula and not the shade!

Remay Shave Gel Bar*
Does anyone else really struggle with razor burn? Even when I use a brand new razor, I get a ton of little red bumps! I'm hoping that this gel bar I was just sent will do the trick. It has a really interesting waxy texture that is hard to describe. I haven't used it yet, but I will use it for at least two weeks before doing my review on it. In the meantime, if you have any tips for razor burn I would love to hear them!

Pixi Glow Tonic
Everyone and their mother loves this toner. I finally finished all of my samples of other toners so I can break this out and see how it works for me! It's a glycolic acid toner which is meant to promote brightness. I have very high expectations for this toner so I hope it doesn't disappoint. I'll probably post about this in the current skincare post I mentioned earlier.

And those are all of the products I need to test out and review! I also wanted to say sorry that my upload schedule is so off--my classes and work schedule this semester don't correlate well with the sunlight, so I never seem to have good light for photos. It was also my birthday last weekend so I was out celebrating!

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them?
