Beenigma After 1 Week

So far so good guys. I don’t know if I would pay full price for this stuff yet though. I love the smell and I really have nothing horrible to say about it. Hopefully it shows me more as time goes on.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

LOVELY
I like this pink. It’s a very easy color to wear. I have yet to wear it a full day though.

These lipsticks are pretty unique. I bought the colors Pure Hollywood and Lovely. I am a nude lipstick lover, it’s just what I’m comfortable with. I see all these beauty gurus wearing all these different fun colors and I’m envious. I need to branch out a little more and use colors that make me uncomfortable.

HOW THEY APPLY
Imagine what water would feel like to apply with this applicator……that is how I would describe this. Of course it is a bit thicker than water, but the feeling on the lips is very moist and wet for the first few seconds. They are very easy to apply and so smooth. After about 15 seconds the color starts to seep into the lips and the stain takes hold. The color does take a few seconds to set up and really reveal what it will look like. The color also changes as time goes on.

THE FINISH
Matte…….SO matte. I like the matte look right now. I do struggle to keep my lips from peeling so I have to be careful with what lip products I use. These lipsticks don’t do dry lips any favors…..BUT they didn’t make my lips any drier. After wearing them for a few hours my lips were not any worse than when I first applied. Your lips do feel “tacky” when you rub them together, but I don’t mind that. This exaggerates lip lines like crazy though. As time goes on, the lip lines look deeper and deeper. After about 2-3 hours of wear the lines start to make me uncomfortable.

PURE HOLLYWOOD
I was disappointed that this color came out to a more peach/brown nude on my lips 🙁 Everyone has natural color to their lips that will effect how lipsticks show up. I was hoping this nude would be more pink like I’ve seen on a lot of other reviewers….. It’s still a nice nude for me, just not the nude I was wanting.

After 2 hours you can see in the last picture that Pure Hollywood has become more brown and less orange than when I first applied it. Every hour this lip color seems to change a bit. I’m really interested to try the darker colors now.

Beenigma

IMG_1547

I was introduced to this face cream by the youtube beauty guru – Tati. She was talking about this in one of her videos and it sparked my curiosity. I just used the last of my face cream and I have been looking for a new one to try. I like trying new things for my skin and rarely ever re-purchase things. I’ve used products from all over, in every brand and price range. Skincare can get really pricey depending on what your priorities are. My focus currently is anti-aging and this claims to be “natures Botox”. To learn more about this product here is their website. It tells you all about the effects of bee venom and how it tricks the skin…blah blah blah.

Cost:
Beenigma is on the more expensive side of face cream. I paid 64.99 and that was with a 50% discount code…………. On TOP of that it was $9.95 in shipping – a total of $78.83. Now come on Beenigma, if you’re going to sell a face cream that is higher end at least give us free shipping. It bugs me when you spend a lot of money on something online and they don’t cover the shipping. I will avoid buying something online BECAUSE of the shipping and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

I am going to start using this cream tonight and I will update you in ONE WEEK. I really hope this turns out to be an AMAZING product that really does what it claims. The bee venom thing makes sense for the most part, but I think the skin will eventually stop reacting to it. Sort of like when you plateau because you keep your exercise and diet the same. Well let’s find out…

Washing Cloth DIapers

Hey ya’ll! See what I just did…..future Texan here! We filmed a very short video to show you guys how we wash our cloth diapers. I understand that different things work for different diapers and also people. We use Alva baby diapers and here is what we found works the best. I wash the diapers 3 times. This really helps clean them completely and they absorb better when you thoroughly clean them.
