“Not going to lie—I’m not usually a five-minute face type of girl. You’ll either find me in a full face of makeup wearing 20-some products that took about an hour to apply or you’ll find me completely bare-faced with just some moisturizer and a quick curl of my lashes and comb of my brows. That said, brows, blush, and glowy skin are definitely my MO, so I kept things simple for this trial.
“First, I’ll talk about the Stick Cream Blush (which I tried in Pink Dhalia) because it was my favorite. I generally prefer powder blushes since I feel like they have more longevity and I have more control when I’m applying them, but this one is lovely—the deep, rosy pink color is exactly what I like and the formula itself was lightweight but blendable and pigmented enough to actually show up and stay put on my face. (I feel like so many creams just mysteriously evaporate into thin air!).
“Next, was the Dewy Set Setting Spray which I also loved! I’m definitely part of the pro-setting spray camp, and this one felt refreshing, and lightweight, and it did a great job of setting my makeup and kind of melding my products together for a dewy, and flattering result. I could do without the coconut-vanilla scent (I don’t like perfumey products sitting on my face), but I still plan to keep this one in my routine.
“Last, Brow Freeze. I’m really sorry, but I think I might be the only one in the world who doesn’t like this product. I am the most minimal person when it comes to my brows. I hate brow gels unless it’s one particular clear formula that I’ll only sometimes use if I feel like I’ll really truly need it, and this was just too sticky and heavy feeling for me. I’m much happier just combing my brows and leaving them be for low-maintenance makeup days, and for days when I do a full face, I’ll stick with my brow pencil and a light-hold clear gel.”
