Belli Skincare- perfect for soon to be mamas & non mamas by Editor in Chief

When the people over at Belli contacted me about testing the product , i was a little unsure. I mean yes its skincare but its also mainly for soon to be mamas.  I am not pregnant so was this going to work on my skin? Will it make a difference? 

I was sent 2 products which you will see below.  I have to say I was impressed.

Review: 

I really like this face wash, I do  it lathered up more though, but I feel as though the Lactic Acid really helped my skin.  I love the smell of the lemon oil and ths doesnt dry out my skin or makes it itchy or anything.  I really noticed that it has helped calmed down the break out I was having when I began using it and has also helped in the dark spot areas on my face.

Product Notes: 


An invigorating scrub for face and body that sweeps away old skin cells to reveal healthy skin.

Review:

I really enjoy this scrub!, I love the smell of the Peppermint oil and it really scrubs your face, it can also be used on body. I use this about 3 times a week and after using this along with the cleanser I notice my face is softer and brighter. I feel you really do get the best results when you use both together.


Ending notes:

Even though the brand is more geared toward pregnant women, these products can be used for any woman.  I feel these products are more gentle and not as harsh as other acne cleansers but yet they still do the job.  This great for those who are more conscious of what they put on their face.

Mally Liquid Lipsticks: Are they worth it? by Editor in Chief

Mally Cosmetics sent me 2 of her liquid lipsticks in 2 shades.  I was excited to try out these Liquid lipsticks and just another Mally product as well ( I tested out the Face Defender here

See If I think these Liquid Lipsticks are worth having them in your makeup drawer.

Product: Mally Liquid Lipsticks

Shades: Sweet Berry & Must Have Pink

Price: $20.00

Where to Buy: MallyBeauty.com  

Is it Worth it?: 

First off, these shades that I have are nicely pigmented.

"SweetBerry"  is nicely pigmented in color yet when applied its streaky and the coverage isn't full coverage plus it settles in your lip lines. As you can see in the swatch pic you don't get the full pretty berry color.  I was sad about this because this means you cant wear this particular lip color on its own.  I did wear it over my MaryKay "Mystic Plum"  lipstick which seemed to work well.  But I would not buy this on my own  more so in this color and I have a sneaky suspicion all the more pigmented, darker shades will have this issue on streakyness and non full coverage.

"Must Have Pink"  is a nice pretty nudish pink lip color. I didnt have any issues with this lip color and I actually prefer this one more.  You can wear this alone or over.  I dont think I would buy after this one runs out as I dont feel it wowed me that much to where I have to have it. To me these 2 are just regular lipgloss and I can get a better product for less price.

I was kind of disappointed in these products becasue I hear so many good things  about Mally and I am currently enjoying the Mally Face Defeder . 

I dont think these are worth it sadly. ...  You can easily go on with your makeup life with out these, or you can have them. In the end I didnt find anything so amazing about these I have to shout from the rooftops. :(

elf HD Lifting Concealer in shade "Brightening" by Editor in Chief

Recently I hauled my elf purchase for you guys and I told you that there will be separate reviews coming. This particular product i couldn't wait to write on since I have literally been using it everyday and It probably my favorite item in my makeup drawer right now. 

Its the elf HD lifting concealer, specifically in the shade " Brightening".

Its a yellow based concealer that isn't for the use of all over your face, its more your under eye/eye area. It comes in a tube that looks like lip gloss and has a doe foot applicator, I use a swipe under each eye ( without dipping the applicator back in)  and then use my it cosmetics  Dual Airbrush Foundation- Concealer Brush which just blends out the concealer all around my eye so easily, flawless & quick!  It literally takes me like under a min to blend in the concealer on both eyes.

Why I Love It:  Not only does HD Lifting Concealer  blend in so amazing but it seriously wakes up my tired eyes! I work nights and I hate looking tired ( I already feel tired) but who need to look like it? .  It totally makes me look bright eyed an bushy tailed as you will see in the pics below.  It is super affordable at only $3.00 and I love how compared to my yellow based MaryKay concealer  the application is less messy and be easily used for many skin tones.

Tried it Series: Curel Daily Moisture Lotion by Editor in Chief

I use very few store brand lotions on my skin. I always find better moisture for my skin  and better product when it my own or from a more natural  brand. 

I was happy to try out Curel's Daily moisture lotion, read on to see what I think!

Product: Curel Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Size: 20 oz

Price: $8.88

Review:

I have to say that I like this lotion. It has a thick texture and consistency. It absorbs well and gives my skin nice moisture. It  doesn't really have a scent so its good to not interfere with your perfume or other fragrances. It is also really affordable and can be bought at any local retailer. 


Recommend?:- Yes.  Looking for a affordable easy lotion , Then I would suggest this one .
