Beauty: Korres, Lancome, and Perfekt

I have a few products that I have been needing to review for you all. They are products that I’ve gotten recently and have been using daily because of their amazing-ness! They are Korres Magic Light/Face Contouring Powder Trio, Lancome’s ArtLiner in Noir, and Perfekt’s Lash Perfection Gel. So here we go:

First up is Korres Magic Light/ Face Contouring Powder Trio.

It is a combination palette that includes a highlighter, blusher, and contour all in one. This has been my favorite addition to my beauty regime. I have the Lancome similarity which I raved about when I got it on this post, but honestly, this one blows that one out of the water. First, this one is by far more affordable. It came in a limited edition Greek Goddess gift set from Sephora which I bought after Christmas for only $29 (that also included a mascara, lip gloss, and age-defying primer), and the Lancome Blush Subtil Palette was $59 by itself.  Second, I have chosen to use one big blush brush and sweep all the colors at once which creates the perfect amount every time. Third and last, this one is just plain cuter.

Next is the Lancome ArtLiner eye liner:

If you have been following my blog for any time, you know I’m always on the search for a fantastic eyeliner. I love black eyeliner and tightline my eyes daily. I have been a strong supporter of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion but have been frustrated with how easily the brush bends causing lines to become impossible to draw. I branched out and picked up Lancome’s ArtLiner in Noir to give it a try. I figured with it being a felt tip applicator as opposed to bristles I wouldn’t have a problem. That’s partially true, but to be honest, I’m not really a fan of this product. The lasting ability is fantastic, however, trying to get a thin line is very difficult. Often times this felt tip picks up way too much product and is deceiving. I use it in my waterline and it ends up turning my eye black because it runs from having an excess. For $28 I really don’t think it’s worth the hassle.

Last is Perfekt’s Lash Perfection Gel:

Don’t worry about this size, it looks small because it is. This was a sample in December’s Birchbox that is the only product worth commenting on. I love this product. It’s a mascara that is also a primer. It’s kind of like a BB cream for eye lashes. It goes on well, creating volume and separation. Taking it off is honestly the best part. This product is dry to the touch but comes off without pulling out any lashes. It feels like its still wet when you take it off with remover. I don’t know how it does it, but I hate mascaras that take forever to come off and take half of your lashes with it and something in this formula makes that not happen. While I haven’t bought the full-size yet, as it is $28 at Sephora, I plan to when this little guy runs out. It really is a great mascara!

And there you have it. Three great products that if you get the chance, you should definitely try!
