Since today is the last day of the F&F period, I know most of our ladies have received at least one of their orders already, and I thought it would be fun to post mini reviews of products that you tried for the first time from the sale! I'm still waiting on my third (*FAINTS*) shipment, but I've tried some AMAZING products so far (and a couple I didn't like all that much), so I wanted to share! RAVES: 1. Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes eyeliner pencils. I got the collection of 5 or 6 (I don't remember at the moment and I'm at the Toyota dealership getting my oil changed so I can't look!) and the only color I haven't tried yet is the bronze. They go on very smooth, have a lot of pigment, and the texture is wonderful. Buying the set also gave me the opportunity to try the silver color, which I would have NEVER thought to buy on my own, but it's a very light silver so it looks AMAZING if you use it to line your lower lids. It makes my eyes look so bright and open, but since it's the perfect color silver, it doesn't LOOK like my eyes are lined in silver, if that makes any sense. It's subtle, but the effect is significant. I've already ordered a full size one from Sephora for when the mini runs out. 2. Make Up For Ever Lift concealer. It feels very thin, almost kind of watery, for a concealer but it has great coverage, DOES NOT settle into the crease under my eyes, and keeps by dark circles hidden all day; all I have to do is set it with a touch of loose powder. Also covers the blackheads and large pores on my nose. Does a much better job that YSL Touche Eclat, which is what I HAD been using, and is supposed to be a miracle product. Several people at work (even several guys) have commented that I look great in the couple days that I've worn it. I've got the MUFE primer on the way (I'm so freakin' impressed with this brand so far) and the Ojon dry shampoo (amazing reviews on MUA, way better than the Oscar Blandi), so I'm really excited to try these and will report back! RANTS: 1. Dior HydrAction Radical Moisturizing Serum: I had a DiorShow makeup artist (one of the ones that travels around) use this line on me and my skin felt AMAZING afterwards - I bought the moisturizer then, and ordered this serum from Sephora. The only thing he used that i haven't bought is the makeup remover, and i can't imagine that would make that big of a difference. Still, this stuff leaves my skin feeling fairly dry, unless I pile it on, and then I'm oily by morning. This was $67, and the moisturizer (which I'm going through REALLY fast) was $42, and neither was worth the money. I don't know what he did differently. My Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer and cleansing pads work a lot better than this stuff, and they're less than $15 apiece! I'll probably use this up because I paid so much for it, but then it's back to Aveeno. 2. GHD Heat Protectant for Weak or Damaged Hair. Like all the heat protectants I've tried, it's sticky. I don't know why heat protectant has to be sticky. It works about as well as the Matrix I had been using (and I'm not convinced that either makes a difference since all of my normal products have a heat protectant in them anyway), and it smells wonderful, but I just don't think it's all that awesome. It's the only GHD product I've tried that I haven't absolutely adored. I'll report back when I get my other goodies!
