Makeup Monday

Hello everyone hope you all had a wonderful weekend figured it was time for another Makeup Monday since it has been awhile.
So I finally got my New Beauty Test Tube. I will say that I was disappointed this time it is usually packed full of stuff so this time I have to say it my least favorite since I started getting them. Still good for what you pay but nowhere near what I usually receive in it. So here is the breakdown.
This was the overall  view of what I got in.

These are the full size products I received in.
Dr. Brandt Pore No More Cleanser $35
I tried this over the weekend and I really like it.
Mally- Black Eye Liner $25
I have actually purchased this liner before and it is pretty good.
Simple- Cleansing Wipes $5
I have bought the cleansing wipes before as well and was not thrilled with them.
Tarte- Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush $25
The blush I have to admit I love it and was so glad they sent it was one of the things that I have wanted to try but had not gotten yet. Like all of the other Tarte products it is wonderful.

of course the magazine alone is $9.95

Smaller sizes of
Stila Multi Use Gel Cream - Pretty good... standard I guess nothing really impressive.
Vinchy- Face and Eye Serum
Phyto- balm
They always have a list of their top picks in several categories some of the products I have tried others I haven't so I thought I would give you my top picks. Since there are so many different "categories"  this round is just going to be about skincare since that is obviously where it all starts!
 Philosophy Purity with the Clarisonic Mia
 Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster - THIS IS THE BEST will not do without! Sorry but this one wins hands down no matter what other products I have tried (and there have been many) it is packed with Vitamin C and if you are used to using the primers for color correcting you won't need it this evens out your skin. It is a serum but it is not greasy like some things I have tried.
okay these are the best 3 I have found
  Ole Henriksen Truth Crème Advanced Hydration Pros you can tell a difference the next day after putting it on at night the con for this is amazing  as it is I personally don't like the smell since I don't like anything citrusy.
  Elemis which I love and makes your skin look to die for but lets face it that one you have to make last forever since it is so pricey.
Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer this one there is nothing but praise the price is not outrageous and it works like a charm.  
Clinique- All about the Eyes Serum this I keep in the fridge and put on first thing when I wake up before putting on anything else in the mornings. 
Ole Henriksen - Truth is in the eyes
What are your favorite skincare products? Check back next week for makeup favorites!


  1. I am going to look for that collagen booster. I have tried the simple wipes and I agree they are ok.


  2. If I can just get in a face washing routine, I think it would work wonders :)

  3. These boxes are so fun! Thanks for sharing!

This is the random everyday of my life. I live in a small town in VA with the husband and 2 furbabbies (Bo the dog and Toby the cat). I love makeup, reading, country music, Scentsy pinterest, blogging, and spending time with my family.
