Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Lengthening Mascara- Black

I have mixed feelings about this mascara.  It definitely does lengthen, but I thought the results were just average and didn’t live up to the hype.  It was also difficult to wash off.  I wouldn’t purchase this product because there are other mascaras I think are more effective.

Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30

This is a very interesting product.  It has a green color which works to color correct redness and dark spots and help to create a more even looking skin tone.  A little bit goes a long way especially because the product is kind of difficult to rub in.  It did offset some redish pink tones in my skin and worked pretty effectively under makeup.  However, I don’t feel like this product is really necessary for me personally, and I have a lot of other moisturizers I like more, so for that reason I wouldn’t purchase this product again.

LXMI Creme du Nil

This cream is formulated with an ingredient from Uganda called Nilotica Reserve.  It is supposed to provide moisture for a plumper, more radiant appearance.  I thought this product was nice and definitely hydrating, but I didn’t think there was anything exceptional about it to justify the high price point.  I think there are many other products out there for less that are just as effective.

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow

This BB cream provides light coverage but can be layered for fuller coverage which I prefer.  The color has a nice golden look to it and I liked that it was paraben and oil free.  This is a good solid option if you are looking for a BB cream.  For me personally, I have a few other similar products that I use, and I don’t like this product enough to replace those, so for that reason I would not purchase this product.

Number 4 Jour d’automne Smoothing Balm 

This is my favorite product from this months box, it contains tiny molecules that penetrate each strand to minimize frizz and protect against heat damage.  This smoothing balm made my hair feel so soft and looked incredibly shiny.  I highly recommend this to anyone with dry or frizzy hair.
