Danessa Myricks Beauty – Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Review

Danessa Myricks Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Danessa Myricks Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder

I purchased myself a little treat from Sephora a few weeks ago, and I am finally ready to share my review of the Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder. [info in italics taken from the Sephora Canada website]

Danessa Myricks Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder

What it is: A texture reducing, coverage boosting, blurring balm, that balances oils throughout the day while maintaining hydration.

Highlighted Ingredients:
– Upsalite: Supports and absorbs excess sebum and sweat while maintaining skin‘s hydration.
– Olive-Derived Squalane: Known to support oil production and diminish visible signs of aging.
– Hyaluronic Acid: Promotes skin‘s hydration.

Danessa Myricks Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder

The Blurring Balm Powder is available in 11 shades, ranging from universal (translucent) to 10 (deep with golden undertones). I chose the shade 2 (light with golden undertones) – the second lightest shade – which when blended out this shade works great to minimize any redness on my skin.

Danessa Myricks Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder

This is a cream to powder formula, with sheer to light coverage. I prefer to apply it with my fingers or with a sponge. The coverage is very nice and natural. But I will say that if you need to prep your skin with moisturizer or primer, as it can cling to dry patches, especially if you apply in a little too heavily. Overall I like it a lot!

Have you tried this one?

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara Review

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara – I purchased it in early January and have been testing it out. [info in italics taken from the elf Cosmetics website]

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

What is it? A mega volume mascara that helps your lashes look fuller, bolder and longer than ever.

Why we love?

  • Achieve mega volume lashes instantly
  • Volumizing mascara is formulated with intensely rich pigments for bolder than ever lashes
  • Flexible, silicone brush grips lashes from root to tip for insane volume
elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

Volume that hits all the high notes! This formula’s intensely rich pigments easily coat lashes for a bigger and bolder look. The sleek flexible wand hugs every single lash with both vertical and horizontal bristles to amplify, define & add dimension.

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

This sounds like a perfect mascara for me since I prefer lots of VOLUME for my lashes. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am super picky about mascara. I have long, stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. I use a lash curler and I need a mascara will hold a curl. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water resistant.

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Lash It Loud Mascara score?

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

1. waterproof / water resistant +1 Not waterproof mascara, but held up well during cold weather eye watering for me!

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Dark black!

5. volumizing +1/2 Ok volume, great length. I was hoping for mega volume.

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It holds a curl pretty well, wish it had better hold

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 no itchy eyes!

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.25 out of 7 – which is pretty good! The brush shape works great for my inner and outer lashes. I prefer the volume that the Big Mood Waterproof Mascara gives my lashes, so I’m probably going to try the non-waterproof formula to see how it compares.

I love that elf Cosmetics is cruelty free, and vegan, and affordable!

Based on the description of the elf Cosmetics Big Mood Waterproof Mascara, this sounds like a great mascara for me.

5. volumizing +3/4 Good volume, great length, but I always want MORE VOLUME!

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It holds a curl pretty well, wish it had better hold

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 no itchy eyes!

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.5 out of 7 – which is pretty damn good! I especially love the chunky hourglass wand – it works well for my lashes and eye shape. I love that elf Cosmetics is cruelty free, and vegan, and affordable!

KVoss Lip Treatment Papaya

The Lip Treatment in available in two shades: Fig Macaroon and Papaya – I received Papaya. It smells very fruity – like real fruit and not synthetic. It is super moisturizing and fairly long wearing. The slight tint is very pretty as well, and it has a nice sheen on the lips.

Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Eyeliner Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Eyeliner – this came in my November 2019 Petit Vour box, and I’ve finally gotten around to testing it out! [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Liner

Highly-pigmented and completely waterproof, Eye/Define is a smooth & smudge proof formula – even in the most humid of conditions. This precious ink contains Shea Butter, Vegetable oils, Vitamin E & C to keep the skin conditioned without causing eye irritations. A precise felt tip applicator allows easy & effortless movement for a smooth application to achieve the ultimate cat eye.

Joséphine Cosmetics Eye / Define Natural Waterproof Graphic Liner

This eyeliner is available in six shades on the Petit Vour website – I have the shade Jolie Black which is a deep, dark, black, with a felt pen tip. It was fairly easy to apply, even though I’m super out of practice at doing a winged liner. I love that it is waterproof and it doesn’t budge once it dries. I’m going to try to do a winged liner more often!

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing a Single Shadow from Aether Beauty that came in my January Petit Vour box. I’ve been eyeing their palettes for awhile now, so I was super excited to find a single shadow to try out in my subscription box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

The perfect day to night romantic shades. Customize your palette with these go-to single eyeshadows. 

Formulated with organic coconut oil and organic shea butter, it creates a smooth, buttery texture for one swipe application. Infused with organic rosehip oil which provides radiant looking, glowing skin.

 

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

The single shadow is available on the Petit Vour website in two shades: Amethyst, a purple gray metallic infused with amethyst, and  Solar Eclipse, a peach metallic, infused with topaz. I received the shade Amethyst.

Aether Beauty Amethyst Single Shadow

It is a super wearable shade – on me it tends to pull more purple taupe than purple gray which I really like. The texture is super smooth and buttery, and it is highly pigmented. I’ve swatched it both with and without primer (the primer is not a good shade for my eyelids, but it works great for swatching). This shadow is so difficult to photograph – I tried photographing it from different angles to try to capture how truly beautiful it is!

Aether Beauty Amethyst6

I don’t buy eyeshadow very often, because I already own quite a lot, but I really think that I want to get either the Rose Quartz or the Solstice palette.

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Mica*, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate*, Zinc Stearate*, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate*, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Rosa (Rose Hip) Canina Seed Oil**, Silica*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil***, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*** Tin Oxide, (Rose) Quartz*, Alumina* May Contain: Bronze Powder*, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet, Iron Oxides, Ultramarines*, Bismuth Oxychloride | *Certified Organic Ingredients, Natural Derived, Fair Trade.

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Hello, hello! Welcome to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I’m reviewing the Fitglow Beauty Goodlash + Mascara that came in my January Petit Vour box [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

3-in-1 vegan mascara, amplifies lash volume and length while nourishing lashes with powerful botanical extracts and plant protein to promote lash health and growth. The multitasking mascara/serum/conditioner enhances the look of lashes on a day-to-day basis plus provides potent vitamins and antioxidants to help lashes grow thicker, denser and fuller. Frail and brittle lashes are strengthened and protected by organic emulsion which prevents breakage and leaves lashes looking rich and full. 

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aqua, Iron Oxide (CI 77499), *Euphorbia Cerifera (Candellila) Wax, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba Wax), *Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Vegetable Collagen, *Myrica Pubescens Fruit Wax, Stearic Acid (Cocoa Source), *Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail Plant) Extract, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Propanediol / Pentylene Glycol / Phenethyl Alcohol (Non GMO Sugar Source), Hydrolyzed (Lupine) Plant Protein. | *Certified Organic

I am so picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes. They are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. Because my lashes are straight, I always use a lash curler before applying mascara. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant (ideally waterproof).

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant +0 This is not a water-proof or water-resistant mascara. And I have eyes that water very easily.

2. smudge-proof +1/2 This mascara was not smudgeproof on me. It was not horror movie level smudging, but definite darkness under the eyes by the end of the day.

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1 No flaking or clumping!

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Very dark black!

5. volumizing +3/4 It gave my lashes some volume, but not as much as I was hoping for

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It held a curl pretty well, for most of the day.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 My lashes felt soft after using this mascara and my eyes were not at all irritated.

Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara

The wand is a nice conical shape, great for the inner and outer lash corners. Overall, I would score this mascara a 5 out of 7. It is a really nice mascara, just not a mascara for me due to my watery eyes. If you don’t have watery eyes, this might be an awesome mascara for you. I will continue to use it on days that I’m working from home to get the lash conditioning benefits. If they ever make a waterproof version, I would definitely want to try it!

Have you tried this mascara, did you like it?

FiOR Minerals D’Fined Lines Organic Eyeliner Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the D’Fined Lines Organic Eyeliner from FiOR Minerals that came in my June Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

This 100% natural vegan eyeliner is bursting with certified organic antioxidants and soothing ingredients, gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

Create defined lines or a smudged out smoky look in no time flat. This creamy moisturizing nutrient-filled formula was designed not to tug or pull on the eye. FREE of harsh chemicals, dyes, parabens, GMO’s and toxic ingredients–No more Crying Eyes, only Smiling Eyes.

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

This cruelty free, organic, vegan eyeliner is available in six shades: After Midnight (deep navy smoke, satin-metallic finish), Black Betty (blackest black, satin-matte finish), Brown Sugar (rich chocolate brown, semi-matte finish), Mystic (slate gray, matte finish), Night Moves (striking royal blue, satin-matte finish) and Purple Rain (bright striking purple, satin-metallic finish).

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

I received the shade Mystic which is described as a slate gray, matte finish – to me it looks like a soft matte black. I have so many black eyeliners in my stash, but this is one of the few vegan / organic ones that I own. I do wish that I had gotten either After Midnight (navy) or Night Moves (royal blue) because I don’t have any blue liners in my collection any more.

FiOR Minerals D'Fined Lines Eyeliner

The eyeliner goes on smooth, and does not irritate my sensitive eyes. It can be smudged out / smoked out when first applied, but after that it will stay put. Super long wearing, even if you have watery eyes like me!

All in all, I think that this is a really great eyeliner!
