Ciate Fierce Flicks Eyeliner

I just ran out of eyeliner so this will definitely be replacing that one. The formula is said to be budge proof and I will definitely be testing that out. I know Ciate is well known for their nail lacquers but I’ve also read great reviews on some of their makeup products so I’m excited to try this out.

Full Size: $23.97 (.05 oz), Sample Size: $14.38 (.03 oz)

The Balm Cabanaboy Blush/Eyeshadow

I love receiving these little samples from the Balm because the packaging is so cute. This is rusty rose with plum undertones, it also has some shimmer. This feels really nice and is decently pigmented. It would make a nice blush for the winter.

Full Size: $27.60 (.3 oz), Sample Size: $1.84 (0.02 oz)

Adesse New York, Organic Infused Nail Polish

This is a quick drying nail polish infused with minerals that make it long lasting. Well, I don’t know about that because the nail I did for this post chipped away the next day! It just peeled off with little to no effort on my part. It has a chrome finish that gives off the purple/blue shimmer which I’m not in love with. If I do wear a nail polish I tend towards pastel colours.

Full Size: $26.29  (this is a full size item)

Cosmohlic Liquid Lipstick in Mysterious Mocha

This is a super glossy liquid lipstick that does feel a bit sticky. I love the colour though, it reminds of Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Chicauaua.

Full Size: $32.84 (volume undetermined)

INDI Beauty Buttercream Antioxidant Lip Scrub

I really love using lip scrubs and will be putting this to good use. I find that exfoliating the lips before I moisturize helps prevent them from cracking in the winter. I like that this has shea butter, sweet almond oil, avocado & Vitamin E. It also smells delicious! I’m really excited about this product!

Full Size: $28.90 (10 mL), Sample Size: $14.45 (5 mL)

My Thoughts

Overall, I think this month was OK. There are some really great items that I will be able to use right away like the eyeliner and lip scrub. As always, I won’t be using the nail polish so that’s a bummer that I keep getting them. The eyeshadow and liquid lipstick will probably get used too. Total value of my bag; $56.96 (minus the liquid lipstick because I could not determine the sample size price)

Lots of Love,
