If you have been following me on Instagram, you would know that I am very much alive and still buying stuff LOL!
Speaking of buying stuff, I would like to tell you all about my most recent budget purchase.
I have been hearing about shopmissa.com for a little while, so I finally decided to get a assortment of items to try out. In case you are not familiar with Shop Miss A, everything on that site is $1!! Plus, there is free shipping when you spend $30. I only spent about $13 total including shipping, which was less than $3.
Here is a list of items I bought:
-kleancolor brow pomade
-kleancolor brow powder
-naisture brightening mask
-2 kleancolor liquid matte lipsticks
-2 santee matte lipsticks
- beauty treats lip scrub
The process was very quick. My order was processed, shipped and arrived within a week.
Now for some reviews of the products.
Now I will forever love a natural ingredients. This mask has both chemical and natural ingredients.
Arbutin is the key ingredient. This is accompanied by collagen, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, vitamin e and lactic acid.
How do you use this mask? It is a sheet mask. First you have to wash and dry you face. Then gently unfold and apply the mask to your face. After 15 minutes, you remove the mask, tap in the excess serum and let your skin dry before you apply moisturizer. One thing I liked about the mask was that it actually fit my face. It is too early to tell if the ingredients worked, but I can tell you that my skin felt soft and hydrated. I would use it again and even experiment with different masks of this brand.
Of course I had to try all the skincare first! The lip scrub I like as well. It says black cherry on the label, but that only means the smell, it has absolutely no taste, which I am OK with. The walnut meal is ground super fine. I used this lip scrub on dry lips. It is very emollient and never dries, so you could be scrubbing forever! PLEASE DON'T!!! Limit it to a few seconds. I was a little weirded out seeing the tiny container, then I thought, " oh well, that's what you get for a $1." When I tried it, I scraped a tiny bit out, ( I will try my best with the measurements, about 1/16 x 1/8 section) and I felt that was too much! After I was done scrubbing, I simply wiped it away with a paper towel. I would purchase this again too!
First, they smell fruity which is nice and weird at the same time. But, I'll take that over that cheap cosmetic smell any day. It feels very slick and moisturizing. The color did not turn out as bright on my lips as it was in the tube, which was a little bit of a bummer. The texture was good though. My lips did not feel tight, dry or sticky. I would say this product is more of a stain gloss than a liquid lipstick. It was matte, I give it that much, and the color did stay on. Even though I could see remnants of the color on my coffee cups, my lips never went without color. Would I buy these again? I am considering it...but for only 1 reason, the staining factor. I would layer these "lipsticks" with an actual lipstick to minimize the need for touch ups. It would be great for clients.
I actually had high hopes being that most of the colors were sold out...but the color is just not right. I am usually in the medium brown family when I buy eyebrow products and I was lucky enough that they had it in stock. BUT, the color is just too warm for eyebrows. It looks artificial by itself. Plus the consistency is thin, so you will need a couple layers, which only amps up the fact that this tone of brown is not right. It makes me wonder if the rest of the colors are like this... To solve the issue of the color being too warm, I tried layering it with the brow powder...
So this powder looks like it should be good...but I'm not sold on it. Its too powdery and upon contact with a brush there is immediate fall out. By itself, this brow powder is too grey. It almost looks like you had your eyebrows tattooed on and it has now faded. Layered on top of the pomade, the color is odd. It was a weird purplish, brown, grey. I don't know what else to call it. No, I would not buy this again.
I am OK with these lashes. They are soft, flexible and have an invisible band, which I have a personal preference for. I would probably order more.
The consistency is great!, These lipsticks are soft, and glide on easy...unfortunately they do not last long. The color fades and pigmentation is inconsistent, the peachy one was not as pigmented as the pink one I tried. I seriously doubt I would purchase these again.
