Makeup Bag: 5 Products I Tested Out This Week (Benefit Cosmetics, Body Shop, Lancome, Manic Panic, BH Cosmetics)

These are 5 products that I made a point to test out this week, I pulled them into my makeup bag and used them. Each week, I will continue to test out new products and rotate through my collection.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, Benefit Cosmetics and Manic Panic Dreamtone

I really liked the Hello Flawless foundation because it has SPF 25 and has a light to medium coverage, I stopped using it because I found it too dark. I picked up the Manic Panic Dreamtone and decided to give both a try together. The Dreamtone lightened the foundation and made it work. It didn't change the consistency. I also tested out the SPF on a warm day, and my body had a slight sunburn but my face did not. So, it seems like it didn't bother the SPF either. I'm very fair skinned and often the lightest shades are still too dark, I think the Dreamtone will be great to have in my collection.

B H Cosmetics Studio Pro Concealer

This concealer is high coverage and really amazing. I love using this product, and will definitely be repurchasing. This is the best affordable concealer that I have tried. I tend to rotate between this one and my Tarte Shape Tape. My one complaint is the packaging. When you first get this product, it squirt out as soon as you take the cap off. It's very easy to waste product and I'm not a fan. I really wish B H change the packaging. A Doe Foot applicator/tube would be ideal in my world.

Body Shop Radiant Highlighter

This is a cream highlighter that has a pink tone to it. I really do like this product but I don't tend to use cream highlighters often. I tried this as a base for my powder highlighter and it worked well. It also worked well on it's own, if you want a more natural highlight. I would also mix a little bit of this into my foundation for a dewy look.

Lancome Hypnose Drame Mascara

This is a mascara that I do enjoy, it add volume and length to my lashes. I do like to wear fake lashes, but while on vacation I tend to use just mascara. This one is a great "go to" mascara. The wand is quite big, and doesn't work well on my lower lashes. I would get mascara all over, but on my upper lashes, it was great.

    Beauty On A Budget

  2. The BH concealer sounds really good! I'll have to take a look into ordering that one xx

    Velvet Blush

  3. I don't think I have tried any of these products. The foundation from Benefit sounds promising x

    Pink Frenzy

  4. Lancome, makes some really good mascaras. I talk about Benefit Cosmetics in my blog post today. Their color selection is tricky.
