Things I Recently Tried and Loved and The Things I Didn’t
I recently blogged about different things I was trying for the week.
It included a list of 5 different items including links where they could be purchased. This is a VERY short term follow up to a couple of those items as I just a few days into trying these items.
#1 on my list was Real Techniques by Sam and Nic Mini Brushes. Which I am so far ABSOLUTELY LOVING! I have already purchased another brush by them and when a sculpting sponge by the brand came in my Walmart Beauty Box this month, I was like “hell yeah!!!”. These are super high quality and I am a total brush snob. Oh and this is my first month getting the Walmart beauty box and I am pretty impressed by it. I buy a combination of high end items and drugstore brands and for $5, it’s cool. I personally don’t like going into Walmart stores because I hate the lines but the Beauty Box was good. I probably won’t keep the subscription going but it was a fun try and worth the money. I just get too much already. Anyways moving on…
#2 on my list was Crest Whitening Therapy – Enamel Care. And so I am very happy with my new toothpaste. I can tell a slight difference in my teeth. I keep meaning to start using a straw to drink my tea/coffee with but I have been meaning to to do that for years. Straws are just so bad for the environment. Plus I just stopped drinking red wine. How much can you expect from a good girl in her early 30s? For anyone who knows me, the red wine is a big step. The only downside to this toothpaste is that you ABSOLUTELY must keep it upright or else it will leak. I don’t think I have ever bought a toothpaste that insists on being kept so neat.
3. Diamond Laser Cut File by Trim.
OMG I am so confused by this nail file 😩😩 I thought I was a crystal nail file person and now I just don’t know. Is there anything else like this on the market? I only bought it because it was pretty and I needed a nail file for the moment and now I am loving it. I will update soon. I swear to God, Trim, if you up and stop making these before I get the chance to update this, I will not be buying your files again. Actually, I will buy them and hold onto them for 89 days and then return them to Target for store credit. Don’t make me be that person. I really love this file. Don’t make me crazy.
#4 Ecotools total perfecting blender. All right I’ll admit that this is the only “loser” on my list and I’m so confused that it’s a disaster that I already ordered a new one just in case I somehow got a defective product. I am aware that occasionally happens and this product is so highly reviewed that I must try it again. I know at least 2 people personally who use this and have no idea why I am experiencing the issues that I am with the sponge I purchased. But mine is literally falling apart as I am using it and I am having little pieces of green sponge in my makeup everyday and when I am using $40+ Fenty foundation, I don’t exactly want to wash my makeup off and start over. I just want to pick the green stuff off from my face and call it a day. Major fail so far. I will try it one last time with a new sponge but if I have the same problem again, I am issuing a warning not to use this brand and/or product.
# 5 Mini Paper Cranes – I have very little to say about these other than that folding paper cranes is more difficult than it looks. I am still determined to make some though.
