We know we haven’t done any product reviews recently, so for 2017 we decided to make a goal of reviewing several products each month in monthly round up. Here are the products we’ve been loving this month!
- Davines Oi All in One Milk – The Davines Oi line has to be an all time favorite hair line from Davines. The Oi line consists of a shampoo, conditioner, oil, and the milk: a leave in conditioning spray that will change your life AND is perfect for any hair type, so we all win! This spray has to be one of the best leave in conditioners and detanglers on the market. Pros: detangles, it can be used on wet or dry hair, heat protecting, moisturizing and conditioning, also adds softness and a silky shine. This product is both Stef and Janna approved as we both use it and it’s even used on Stefanie’s two little girls to help comb through any unruly tangles. Bonus: Stef sells this wonder product at her salon! (Review by Stef)
- Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme – If you have been living under a rock you may not have noticed that the liquid lipstick tread has taken over the beauty industry with every brand from high end to drug store having a variation on the product. That’s why we wanted to do reviews of products to introduce people to new trends or products out there! Some liquid lipsticks are super drying on the lips (for example the Kat Von D ones) and require a lot of prep to make them look good. Marc Jacobs Beauty changed the game with their recent release of their Liquid Lip Creme. It goes on with more of a satin finish that eventually dries down but it doesn’t feel tight or drying on the lips at all. I bought the shade Slow Burn and have been wearing it almost daily. I would recommend this product for someone wanting to dip their toes in the liquid lipstick trend but want their lips to feel hydrated throughout the day. (review by Janna)
- Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer – I was always a fan of the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer so when I saw that Nars was going to release a new pot concealer to the family I knew I had to try it. I love the color selection of the Nars concealers as they seem to have a shade for any skin tone, even my fair super pink toned pale skin. Pro tip: check the Sephora website for shade description as it is very helpful to know if the shade is pink or golden in undertone. I wear the shade Vanilla in either of the concealers. The new Soft Matte Complete Concealer is more full coverage and matte as the name suggests than it’s older sister the Radiant Creamy Concealer. I have tested it out over blemishes and under my eyes and have found it replacing other concealers I used to use. It lasts all day and doesn’t seem to crease under my eyes. I have a very oily skin type in case you need a reference point. If you have really dry skin I think you would be better off with the Radiant Creamy concealer. This is the product claim from Nars “Get high-performance correction with soft-focus blurring. Soft Matte Complete Concealer instantly conceals dark circles, redness, discoloration, and blemishes with a light-diffusing effect that blurs and smooths, while delivering long-term skincare benefits. Flexible elastomers stretch and blend to a second-skin look, building coverage weightlessly and effortlessly.Infused with a Soft-Focus Smoothing Complex, it delivers instant perfection with long-term smoothing. Optimal Diffusion Powder transforms the look of skin by blurring imperfections with light diffusing spheres—designed to absorb and refract light for a powerful soft-focus effect. It provides coverage without settling into fine lines and pores, delivering the highest level of coverage with the lightest touch and all-day wear.” (review by Janna)
