Product Reviews: tili bags, Masqueology, Stila, and thebalm
Here is what I thought of last month's box of goodies. It took me a bit longer to try them all and give you my full opinion. Watch for this month's review soon!
These cute little travel bags are the perfect size for carrying lip gloss, smaller toiletries, or loose change. They are great for those items that may leak or get lost among your purse contents. The best part is they come in fun prints and colors. They are made of durable plastic and zip to seal. These bags retail for $8.49 and you get 12-1 quart size bags and can be found at www.tilibags.com. If you travel or like to carry products in your purse, I recommend these fun bags!
Masqueology Pore Minimizing Mask
This is a cottony type of mask that is loaded with cleansers. The cleansers in it help the mask to naturally stay on your face. There are holes already punched out for your eyes and mouth so you just have to line them up on your face. I definitely looked a little funny wearing it around the house for 20 minutes, but as soon as I put it on I could feel the minty, cool cleansers going to work. This mask intends to minimize the visible appearance of pores as well as refine your skin's overall texture and appearance. My skin felt really refreshed and smooth after using it and I am sure with regular use, there would be long-term benefits. This mask retails for $24.00/3 Masks HERE.
Stila One Step Bronze
This three-in-one primer, bronzer, and skin perfecter goes on quick and smoothly. This has been my favorite from this month's choices. It wasn't heavy and provided just the amount of summer color to my skin. I have worn this a lot this summer and has given me that just-right touch of summer glow. I would definitely purchase this item again! This retails for $36.00 HERE and would easily last you all summer and keep that glow going into the fall.
theBalm cosmetics Stainiac
This product is a lip/cheek stain. You can apply it to the apples of your cheeks or lips for long-term color. But don't expect it to have the lip gloss type of feel. If you want it shiny, you would still need to apply a lip gloss over the top. For those that like to carry around just a couple products this will cover your lip and cheek color in one, but it really wasn't for me. I'm sure it would just take some time getting used to applying it, but the color choice also wasn't perfect for me either. The lip stain retails for $17.00 and can be found HERE.
