The Beauty Rundown | May 2016

Here are my thoughts on these products:

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
First Impression | It has a faint smell of alcohol or something. When putting it on the pimple, it stings for a minute or so.
Review | I rarely get pimples but when I do, they aren't the smallest. I usually get them around that 'time of the month'. So when it's around that time, that's when I pull this out. Honestly, this really does make a difference. This one time, I put it on a blemish I saw sprouting and by the morning it was completely gone! I really recommend this for people who get little breakouts here and there.

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips
First Impression | Very pigmented and goes on very smoothly. It is a satin so it didn't dry out my lips, but it did leave my lips a little tacky.
Review | I love the look and feel of this lippie. It's nice to switch it up from the matte lip that I do way too often. It holds up pretty well throughout the day and it doesn't dry out my lips.

ColourPop Creme Gel Liner
First Impression | I first tried the white one as a cream base but I found that it was too quick to dry to even spread thoroughly onto my lid. So since it dried too quickly, my base was really blotchy. I ended up wiping it off and trying something else.
Review | I stand by my first impression that it's not meant to be used as a base. BUT as eyeliner, it's really nice. They're pigmented and last long. They do not smudge at all. Really easy to work with as well!
