Stylish challenge? We gladly accept! The mission? To put some top beauty products to the test, ladies! We happily teamed up with Planet Beauty to get the job done! (No need to twist our arm for this!)
Where to start? Head (and face) first! Here are the ‘deets’ from the first round of beauty products (photo insert):
Beautyblender Makeup Sponge
Description: The patent-pending elliptical shape makes makeup application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease.
Test: We used this makeup sponge applicator to apply cream foundation daily for about one week.
Results: We did notice a huge difference! The Beautyblender actually absorbs some of the foundation, evenly applies it and leaves your face more finished without foundation excess! Other sponge applicators just spread cream foundation around and left our face a tad moist with some foundation excess.
Bonus: The shape does allow you to have more control with makeup application and difficult-to-reach areas. Also, we noticed that pieces of the sponge have not started to flake off after several uses.
Rating: A must-have!
No. 4 Hair Care
Description: The Fleurs de Temps Collection includes volumizing shampoo and conditioner.
Price: $34 for shampoo; $36 for conditioner
Test: We used both the shampoo and conditioner on our long, medium-to-thick hair every other day for a week.
Results: After lathering the shampoo, we noticed hair feeling thicker as we rinsed. During hair styling with a curling iron brush, locks really held each curl with a lot of body. We noticed that the volume lasted throughout the entire day.
Bonus: We only had to use a very small amount of finishing cream to tame some frizz. Typically, we use a couple applications of finishing cream (and even again later in the day) to control frizz after washing. As an added bonus, we love the fun size and shape of the containers with French packaging!
Rating: A must-have!
