Review: Ole Henriksen Balance

Ole Henriksen

I was recently sent a trio of face products from Influenster to try, complimentary for testing purposes. They are from the brand Ole Henriksen. While I'm not familiar with the brand I have seen their products in Sephora.

A little background on my skin, I have oily acne prone skin that always seems to react to new products that I try. So when I do receive products, I generally introduce them into my routine very slowly.

While I have not tried the cleanser or the toner, one product that really stood out to me was the moisturizer. I used it at night and when I woke up, my complexion looked glowy and refreshed. The moisturizer boasts these ingredients: green fusion complex, neem seed oil, rosehip fruit extract, & AHAs green fusion, complex.

What I liked:
Absorbs quickly
Has a light, refreshing scent
Didn't break me out
Has good ingredients
Woke up to glowy skin in the am

What I didn't like:
I still get oily

How I used it:
As a nighttime moisturizer

Overall, out of the 3 products, I would incorporate the moisturizer into my daily routine. As a matter fact, I already have! 

You can find these products here: Sephora

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
