In The Lab: Products I’m Currently Testing


Hello there, Beauties!! We’ve been doing this dance for a couple of weeks now, so you know the drill. Here’s what I’m currently testing out for review. 

This might be my favorite post to do right now. Letting you guys know what I’m currently testing reminds me what I’m preparing to review, and gives you guys the chance to request anything in particular you want dedicated reviews on. It’s a win, win for everyone! 🙂

Anywho, enough rambling. Let’s take a look at what I’ve pulled into my monthly makeup ‘drawer’, aka Caboodles, to start testing this week.

I’ve had this foundation in my collection for a while now, so I’m fairly familiar with it. However, the last time I used the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Hydrating Foundation, $42, was during the summer months when my skin was more oily. Now that I’m finding myself with drier skin, I wanted to see how it performs. I don’t know what’s gotten into me over the past few months, but I’ve really gotten more into foundation now that I’m finding ones that don’t irritate my skin.

I finally received my Cyber Monday haul in the mail from Ulta that I told you about last week and couldn’t wait to crack this baby open. The Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Havana Nights is my first lippie from this brand that I’m trying out. I got a total of four on Cyber Monday, for the record. Today is the first day of testing, and I can say with certainty that I’m feeling this formula so far. I’m wearing it as I type this, and can barely tell I have anything on my lips.

My friend Liv from livloveshermakeup convinced me to pick this up after seeing her keep it through so many declutters she’s done on her channel. The Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek Palette in Tan/Deep, $39, is even more pretty in person. I love that I can basically do my entire face with this. I started testing today, and found the pigmentation of the shadows to be much better than I anticipated.

Those are the three things I’ve brought in for testing this week. Let me know if you’d like to see dedicated reviews on any of these products next week.

Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
