Laneige Hydration Care Review

Laneige Hydration and Advanced Water Science

Happy Friday! I’ve got a review of some of the Laneige Hydration Care products for you now.

As mentioned in my previous post about Laneige, they are a Korean skin care brand and you can now find their items at Target. They have quite a few products and I am completely smitten with them lately. Not only are the products really nice, but the packaging looks and feels so high-end, and they are very reasonably priced.

These products are all infused with their Optimal Mineral Water, which hydrates, protects and revitalizes skin for 24 hours. This Optimal Mineral Water which was scientifically-engineered (their words, not mine) fuses three essential minerals: moisture-recharging magnesium, skin-barrier boosting manganese, and cell-renewing zinc.

Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Taupe

Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Taupe

TGIF party people!

Today I have the Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Taupe for you, and she’s just about perfect. Awhile back I reviewed a couple of these (Chocolate and Dark Brown) and they didn’t really match me that great. I was hoping to eventually find a great cool-toned taupe shade that wasn’t too dark, wasn’t too light, and was just right. This is it and I found it at Sephora.

Buxom Vanity Lash Mascara in Show-Off Black

Buxom Vanity Lash Mascara

There’s a new mascara in town at Sephora called Buxom Vanity Lash Mascara in Show-Off Black, but she’s special. Wanna know why? Because you get to choose which of seven brushes you want!

Yep, this is a Custom Mascara Bar! The mascara itself has a volumizing formula and comes in the shade Show-Off Black. You just have to figure out which mascara brush you are interested in and then you have your own custom mascara of sorts. Here are your brush options:

  • Full & Fabulous™: Its molded ball tips power through lashes for lavish fullness from roots to ends.
  • Big & Bushy™: The ultra-bushy bristles layer on massive volume for maximum lash length.
  • Curl & Contour™: An angled brush that hugs, contours, and shapes for head-turning curves.
  • Thick & Defined™: Its flexi-bristles and tapered tip create maximum thickness and ultimate definition.
  • Strong & Long™: A sleek, chic brush shaped to tease lashes to extreme lengths.
  • Itty Bitty™: This small but mighty brush discovers and amplifies your tiniest lashes.
  • Lush & Lifted™: One side of this brush builds ultra-plush lushness, while the other separates and lifts lashes to sky-high lengths.

I decided on the Thick & Defined brush because I prefer these kinds of brushes, and I wanted to add thickness to my lashes.
