This month I got...
From Briogeo, Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Spray. Perfect for manageability and moisture after you get out of the pool or ocean. My daughters hair gets really dry and I spritized some of this in her hair after her bath last night. She woke up this AM with gorgeous hair. She's so lucky!
From Mystic Tan, Mocha-Kyssed Bronzer Lotion. A buildable, slight bronzer. I definitely need products like this for my face, which tends to not get as much sun as the rest of my body (no matter how much I SPF I'm a baseball mom, so my arms and chest get a lot of sun while a hat protects my face well). I haven't tried it yet but it's on my vanity for a day when I'll be at home and can let it bake for testing.
From Appeal Cosmetics, Luxurious Lipstick in Crush. A beautiful summer coral shade! This lipstick is hydrating and pigmented. It wore as long as any other lipstick on me and was comfortable. The product sent is FULL SIZE.
From Glamour Dolls, Mermaid Lashes Splash Proof Mascara. A waterproof mascara so you can "flirt with the prince like a pro". I found that this is fabulous for thickening and lift... and definitely waterproof! The product sent is FULL SIZE.
From Elizabeth Mott, You're So Fine Liquid Liner in Glitterati. This liner is above "plain black" and sports a slight sparkle that won't budge in the water. It was a subtle sparkle but I found it hard to apply with the long-ish brush applicator and it definitely wasn't waterproof. The product sent is FULL SIZE.
My favorite item is definitely the mascara with the lipstick in second. I freaking LOVE that every single makeup item sent is a full sized item. Such an amazing value!
