Let's discuss some of the new things that have arrived….
By Terry Eye Powder Kajal: This new pretty I haven't worn on my eyes yet, but from swatching it's a velvet finish in the sense it's not an inky super black eyeliner like your standard liquid. It's not a jet black liner, but the finish and color gives it this gorgeous sultry look. I'll play with this later this week. It's definitely beautiful, glides on like butter, and easy to work with. But once it sets, it doesn't seem to move at least on my hand.
By Terry Densliss Primer: this stuff…feels like caviar in terms of the luxurious feel. It has the signature Terry fragrance, can be worn alone to blur out pores and wrinkles. This primer is what I wanted Hourglass Mineral Veil to be in terms of the blurring effect. It's definitely gorgeous on its own and doesn't leave a white cast. It's like a lotion in terms of feel and texture. I'm still playing with this under different foundations to see how it looks. I will report back on this too to give a comprehensive review. Just be aware that Terry will be releasing more items in the upcoming months. I can't discuss details, but I am SO EXCITED.
Natura Bisse Essential Shock Intense Complex: This serum has definitely changed in terms of consistency, smell, and texture. I like the newer texture since it's not sticky, and the smell is gone from this serum. The smell didn't bother me before, but it was definitely not very pleasant. The downside on the new formulation (at least to me) is that it doesn't have that super tightening effect it left behind. I could feel the tightening which felt awesome. From the information on this new complex, it seems to be focusing on the firming aspect of the skin too. I've been wearing the original and the new formulation on my neck and décolleté and it's total LOVE. I'm in the preventative stages when it comes to lines, so this is a must have for me. I plan on getting the full size of this once I run out of my samples.
Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum: This baby I've been wanting to try because I have serious dark under eye circles and puffiness. Diamond Extreme Eye helps with moisture in my under eye area, but I want something more when it comes to my dark under eyes and puffiness. This is only meant to be used at night for those who were wondering, as it does have retinol. The retinol is encapsulated to prevent it from oxidizing. I also like the idea of it being encapsulated so when it gets absorbed into the skin, the retinol works from deeper layers in the skin. You warm the serum up with your fingers and pat it on the eye area. A little does go a long way with this.
It will be released sometime this fall. I've always wanted to try the Diamond Life Infusion Serum for the face/neck, but I've been told i'm not old enough yet for it…but I do know I could benefit from the eye serum. I've only used it once and I am curious to see how the long term effects of this specific product. I want the full size now since like 2 months ago. ha ha.
Natura Bisse Diamond White Instant Makeup Remover: This is also an item that will be released sometime later, haven't tried it yet since I want to seriously layer a lot of makeup to see how effective it is in removing it.
Lift Lab is a skincare line I haven't heard of until recently until I went to Boston. It's a line whose ingredients come from biological components most commonly found in wintering plants and marine life in the sub-artic regions. What spikes my interest in this line is the anti-inflammatory and skin regenerating aspect. The serum is what personally catches my attention, because I'm always on the hunt for some holy grail serum. I also just got this and will report back. Has anyone used anything from this line? If so I would love to hear your thoughts.
Hope everyone is well. :)
