July Sephora PLAY! Unbagging

Even though it’s just became August, I’m throwing it back to July to get caught up on all my PLAY! bags. You’re going to want to read this post too, because this month I received my new favorite lip product. . .

Boscia Pore Pudding Charcoal Mask

This mask is interesting. Boscia is a brand with a good reputation, so I was excited to try this. It smells really intense and chemically though, and it was very thick and sticky when you’re applying it. However, it did leave my face feeling clean and fresh. It claims that it will also minimize pores, though I definitely didn’t notice that. I’ll probably keep using this until the sample is gone to see how I really feel about it – though right now the smell alone makes me want to stay away from purchasing it in full size.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

This mascara by IT cosmetics is . . . nice. It’s supposed to be volumizing, but I’d say it actually lengthened my eyelashes instead, which was a bit disappointing because I prefer volumizing mascaras. The brush really gets every lash and the price point isn’t bad. I don’t think I’d choose this over my other favorite mascaras, but if you prefer something that will lengthen your lashes, this is your girl.

Briogeo Leave in Conditioner Spray

Briogeo is a great brand, and this leave in conditioner is no exception. It smells great and has coconut, rose, and argan oils which reduce frizz. Plus this company uses plant-based products, and is vegan friendly and cruelty free. So I’m always happy to support a brand like that! Another great product from them is this deep conditioning hair mask.

Atelier Cologne \\ Orange Sanguine

If you are a fan of citrus scents, this perfume is for you. It has a mix of blood orange, bitter orange peel, and geranium. It doesn’t get more orangey than that. However, I am not a fan of citrus perfumes, so I didn’t love this.

Milk Makeup Cooling Water

Milk Makeup is a really innovative brand and I feel like I’m always seeing some new makeup stick that they’ve created. This hydrating stick is supposed to be used when you’re on the go for a burst of moisture. I was “meh” about it. I used it on my bare face, but I cannot imagine applying this over your makeup without ruining it. It was a bit sticky and I didn’t ever feel like it soaked into my skin, but rather sat on top.

BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick \\ Swag

THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE LIQUID LIPSTICK! I’m sorry for yelling, and I know I say this like once a week, but I literally am obsessed with this lippie from bareminerals and I just needed you to know. I immediately went on the Sephora website and purchased this in the full size. I love this shade “swag” because it’s the perfect pink for my skin tone (I also bought wink which I didn’t love because it was way to pale for my skin). This formula is stunning. It’s not at all drying and its has a mousy-matte texture. Something about the creamy texture makes it apply so flawlessly. You’ll have to reapply throughout the day, but you won’t even care because of how comfortable it is. Seriously, go get this ASAP.
