Dr. Brandt® Skincare – pores no more® vacuum cleaner


This gentle exfoliating mask helps loosen and extract blackheads without painful extraction tools while absorbing oil and tightening pores. Dr. Brandt’s exclusive formula combines Salicylic and Glycolic Acid to assist in the release of blackheads while Eijitsu Rose helps tighten pores.

I’ve read mixed reviews on this product. For some it worked great and others didn’t notice any difference. I’m interested to try this and see how it works on my skin.

 Smashbox Cosmetics – Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Smashbox Primer

Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, this best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish. This primer diffuses the light hitting your skin to blur out imperfections for an even, soft-focus look while also making your makeup last all day long.

I’ve heard such great things about this product I’m excited to try this out. The sample size is a little on the small side but I should get a few uses out of this.

J. Cat Beauty – Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain



Highly pigmented, hydrating, semi-matte lip stain. A delightfully creamy and lightweight stain for any occasion. Silky, smooth and packed with Vitamin E and plants extract, this stain is your go-to glam tool for sexy.

Anyone who got this got it in either the shade of Blow Your Mind or Hikilicious. This lipstain lasts very long as it should, I didn’t find it too sticky when applied.

Keratherapy – Daily Smoothing Cream


Heat-activated Keratin-Infused Daily Smoothing Cream is like a mini-keratin treatment in a bottle – that anyone can use. Packed with the smoothing power of amino acids and the hair-repairing action of pure keratin, your hair will immediately become hydrated and shiny – hair women will envy and men will long to touch.

This smoothing cream claims to 1. Smooths Hair 2. Eradicates Frizz 3. Seal Hair Cuticle and 4. Reduces Blow-Dry Time. I’m all for trying new products that gets rid of summertime frizzy hair! I liked how this  product smelled.

tre’StiQue – Mini Shadow Crayon


This 12 hour eye shadow has customizable color that you can build from a subtle wash to intense vibrancy. It’s also super blendable with a crease free, smooth finish.This product is free of d5, parabens, talc, synthetic fragrances, petro chemicals and also cruelty free.

Anyone who sample the Mini Shadow Crayon will either receive the shade Marimoto Pink Pearl (nude pink shimmer), Venetian Gold (metallic gold), Kona Coffee (chocolate brown) or Aspen Pine (earthy green). I received the Venetian Gold colour and it’s so pretty! It will last a long time. I dont’ think I’ve tried an Eyeshadow pencil before but I like the concept and I’m happy to try this out.

swimintobeautyI’m really happy with my Ipsy Glambag this month! It’s got a variety of items and a mixture of skin, hair and makeup items.

    I love the Smash Photo Finish Primer! It really makes your makeup look flawless and it doesn’t feel greasy or sticky like some primers do (in my opinion.) I can’t wait to hear what you think about it! :)
