Monday, March 12th – Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner in Natural Review

Wednesday, March 14th – Zabana Essentials Tamanu Calendula Face Balm Review

It is back to super cold weather here in Montreal, so my skin is freaking out. Thank goodness I have a stash of facial oils for extra hydration! Really hoping that this cold snap does not last very long. I need SPRING!

I finished up a few more products this week, I feel that I am really making progress in using up the products in my stash.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner (Natural) Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Lip Liner in Natural from Red Apple Lipstick that came in my February Petit Vour subscription box. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

Petit Vour February 2018

WHAT IT IS:
A gluten-free lip liner that is allergen-free. Use under lipstick to define your lips and prevent feathering or fading, or use alone for a matte pout. 

HOW TO USE:
Apply Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner along natural edge of lips and then fill in outline for a solid base. Apply Red Apple Lipstick over top and then blot color gently with a tissue to remove any excess. Voila! Perfectly rouged, stay-all-day lip color!

Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner

The Lip Liners are available in six different shades: Almost Red: brown-based deep red, Barely Pink: natural, warm pink , Blush: orange-based nude rose, Dusty Rose: just that with a hint of mauve, Natural: a little pink, a little brown, the perfect color for a defined pout, and Roseberry: rich rose color with a bold berry base.

I received the shade Natural, and it works with so many lipsticks in my collection! It is a surprisingly smoothly applying lip liner pencil with a matte finish. I’ve worn it alone, as well as with various lipsticks in my collection. It really helps keep lipsticks to stay all day without getting that dried out crumbly feeling.

Here it is swatched next to the Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in the shade Lolita for comparison (Red Apple Lip Liner on top, Kat Von D Lip Liner on the bottom):

Petit Vour Unboxing February 2018

Hello, hello!

My Petit Vour box just arrived, and I thought that I would share my unboxing with you today!

Petit Vour Unboxing February 2018

Just a reminder, the box is $23 USD per box for Canada (it is $18 USD per month for the US, and $25 USD per month for all other countries). I’m using the exchange rate that I paid this month’s box in calculating the overall value – I paid $29.33 CAD for the February box.

Let’s take a look inside!

Petit Vour February 2018

Elate Cosmetics Creme Revealer in shade Porcelain – I was surprised to see a concealer in a perfect shade for me. I can’t wait to test this out over the next couple of days.

Petit Vour February 2018

Derma E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub – I’ve wanted to try Derma E for a long time, so I’m super happy that I got this sample sized facial scrub! I can’t wait to try this out.

Petit Vour February 2018

Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner in shade Natural – I’ve never tried this brand before, so I’m excited as it seems to be a perfect shade for several of the MLBB / nude lipsticks in my collection.

Petit Vour February 2018

Zabana Essentials Tamanu Calendula Healing Anti-Blemish Face Balm – This face balm sounds great, looking forward to trying this one out.

Petit Vour February 2018

All in all, I think that this month’s box was great! The contents are valued at $52 USD, and using the exchange rate that I paid for this month’s box, that works out to be $66.30 CAD.

Reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test everything out.
