Elf Camo Hydrating CC Cream

Elf Camo Hydrating CC Cream Review

Elf Camo Hydrating CC Cream is a medium coverage foundation with a dewy finish that provides SPF 30 sun protection with a combination of chemical and physical sunscreen ingredients. It has an emollient texture contributing to that dewy finish but I do not see any kind of fine shimmer in the product up close. There are 30 shades to choose from with warm, cool and neutral undertone options. For $15, you get 1 fl oz / 30 grams of product in a squeeze tube with a pump.

Elf Camo Liquid Blush

Elf Camo Liquid Blush Swatches and Review

Elf Camo Liquid Blushes are highly pigmented, creamy, blendable blushes that go for $7 each and come in 9 shades. They don’t dry down too fast or too much and can be applied with fingers or brushes, creating a noticeable flush with a hydrated-looking dew. Some of the shades have very fine shimmer that is only noticeable extremely close up. None of them have any large or noticeable sparkle. 

Loreal Voluminous Panorama Mascara

Loreal Voluminous Panorama Mascara Review

Loreal Voluminous Panorama Mascara is supposed to have a volumizing formula and an applicator that helps apply the product evenly to all of your lashes from inner corner to outer corner so that you end up with a more “voluminous” fanned out fringe without clumps, flakes or smudges. It comes in 3 shades (Black, Blackest Black, and Black Brown) and also in waterproof and washable versions. It looks like the waterproof one is only available in Black. Depending where you buy it, you can find it for around $13-$16. As of the time of this review, it is available to purchase from Ulta, Walmart, Amazon, and CVS.

JVN Complete Air Dry Cream

JVN Complete Air Dry Cream Review

JVN Complete Air Dry Cream is a lightweight “my hair but better” styling product with a consistency similar to a gel-cream. It is supposed to be compatible with any hair type and is meant to be an effortless way to enhance the natural texture of your hair. Think of it like a tinted moisturizer, a lip balm, or a brow gel — not very involved or difficult but adds an improvement that just feels better. 

NYX Pro Fix Stick Concealers and Correctors

NYX Pro Fix Stick Concealer and Corrector Review

NYX Pro Fix Sticks are high-medium coverage creamy concealers that come in 18 skin tone shades and 6 color correcting shades. These slim twist-up sticks are small and contain 0.05 oz / 1.6 grams of product and go for $9 each. Both the concealers and correctors feel like the same formula but just differ in color.

NYX Fat Oil Slick Click Shiny Sheer Lip Balms

NYX Fat Oil Slick Click Lip Balm Swatches and Review

NYX Fat Oil Slick Click Lip Balms are tinted glossy lip balms that come in a click-up stick format. They are solid like a lipstick in the packaging but melt quickly upon application. One or two swipes across the lip leave a generously thick but even coating of color and juicy shine. They come in 12 shades in a wide variety depths and colors. Some of them have shimmer and sparkle but most have a cream finish. They have a moderately strong fruity/sugary scent but don’t have much of a taste. It is most noticeable upon application and it lingers for a short while after but it seems to fade in intensity very quickly. These are $11 each and can be purchased from NYX and Ulta.

NYX Duck Plump Lip Gloss

NYX Duck Plump Lip Gloss Swatches and Review

NYX Duck Plump Lip Glosses are spicy, plumping lip glosses in a range of 16 higher pigment shades and 1 clear shade. These are $13 each and available to purchase from NYX and Ulta. They provide a tingly warming sensation on the lips much like the Maybelline Lifter Plump Lip Glosses. Ginger is the ingredient NYX features the most, however this also contains capsicum frutescens fruit extract (chili pepper extract).

Huda Beauty Pretty Grunge Palette

Huda Beauty Pretty Grunge Palette Review

The Huda Beauty Pretty Grunge Palette is the type of palette that looks like it could be a go-to, everyday eyeshadow palette while providing options to go bolder and be more creative. It’s a matte-heavy palette that is sort of neutral but not really considering there are a lot purple, mauve, pink, and peach tones. The more colorful shades add some variety and interest but are still muted enough to reach for on the daily. Only 6 shades are shimmers and there is one 1 black gloss.
