Halloween is right around the corner! I have the decorations up already for over a week and I’m getting a few more just in time for the day of. I hope we get more kids this year as last year it was on a Monday. Most have done their trick or treating over the weekend at some neighborhoods that designate the Friday or Saturday for it or even go to places like the mall for it. We got about 10 – 20 kids. That’s nothing compared to 2 years ago when Halloween fell on a Saturday. We had at least 300 kids come by in our cul-de-sac! Anyway, today’s post is another edition of Curtain Call. I got this product from my ipsy July 2017 Glam Bag. Here’s my take on the 111SKIN Space Defence Bright Eye Gel.
Stated from their website:
- The skin around the eyes is the most sensitive area of the face. This soothing Eye Gel reduces the appearance of dark circles, minimises puffiness and softens the appearance of fine lines while keeping the eye area hydrated.
What I love about this product? Directions to use are pretty straightforward — apply to eye area day and night with a light hand. The packaging is pretty attractive I must say. I am loving the cool and sleek color (is it magenta-sh?) against the silver. The eye gel is translucent in appearance and the consistency is what you would expect from an eye gel. There is a scent to this product…it’s like a baby powder kind of scent is how I can best describe it. It’s not really strong and definitely not noticeable after application. I experienced a warming sensation with every use but it’s not bothersome to me. I kinda take it as “THIS PRODUCT IS WORKING!” Haha! I started using it at the same time I started using the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream. This tiny thing lasted about a week and a half longer than that. This is an eye gel and you use less of it obviously but I got a decent amount of use from this tiny bottle.
What I don’t like about this product? Probably the accessibility. This is not readily available in retail stores like Sephora or ULTA.
More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here.
Hey guys! I’m so excited about this month’s bag! I get this excited when the bag itself is something I’m in love with. Here’s my take on the ipsy July 2017 Glam Bag.
Eeeeeeeeeeeee! It’s so freaking cute!!! I’ve always liked Sanrio stuff and some characters more than others. I would be lying if I said I didn’t know who this little guy is. I’ve seen him become quite popular in the last year or so. Now onto the products! First up is 111SKIN Space Defence Bright Eye Gel. Quite a unique product name and I’m curious to see how it performs. Stay tuned in a few months to see what my thoughts are on this. Next up is Trifle Cosmetics Raspberry Ripple Ombré Radiance Blush Palette. The shades look promising and I’m actually tempted to use this but I think I will pass this on to one of my nieces. The theme and packaging are really cute and nice. Then we have the Ciaté Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner. The shade I got this in is black. This seems to be in the formula that I like most for eyeliners where it’s a pencil but with some moisture to it that you can make sharp lines. Next we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea™ Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. This is good to use for waterproof makeup so I’m quite eager to put it to the test. Last up is Beau Gâchis Illuminator Brush. I made sure I did the review on ipsy for this month as I mentioned before when I retook the quiz that I don’t want any more makeup brushes. The only ones I use (if at all) are big fluffly ones like my IT Cosmetic ones.
Bag aside, I do like most of what I got this month. I already gave myself the expectation that next month’s bag will be nothing compared to this one due to my excitement over Gudetama! Haha!
