In the Lab: Products I’m Testing This Week


Hello and welcome back, Beauties!! With the start of a new week, it’s time to begin testing out a few new products to review for you guys. 


These are a few of the products I’ll be giving a go this week to review. There are a few others that I might start testing, but these are the ones I know for sure I want to try.

The Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks are a formula we all know that I already love, but they’ve recently released a range of nudes and I found two that will work for me without giving me ghost lips. I picked up the shades Slay Tan (brown with an olive undertone; an Ulta-exclusive shade) and Deep Thoughts (deep chocolate brown; an Ulta-exclusive shade). So basically, I picked up two brown lipsticks lol. The other lip products I’m testing out are the Jordana Cosmic Glow ‘Holographic’ Lip Gloss in the shade Brilliant Fuscia. I don’t see these on the Jordan website, but I picked mine up at Walgreens. The final lip product I plan to check out this week is the Milani Amore Shine Liquid Lip Color in the shade Temptation, another brown lmao. The Amore Mattes from Milani aren’t my favorite, so I’m hoping this more glossy formula is one I enjoy more.

The remaining products are all for the eyes and/or brows. One of my favorite YouTubers raves about the Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Pencil, so I picked some up in the shade Rich Brown. I’m also going to try out the new Maybelline Total Temptation Brow Pencil in Deep Brown. You guys know I’m ride or die for my Benefit brow products, but I’m always down to try something new. And if this Maybelline one is as great as I’m hearing it is, I’ll definitely keep buying it since it’s much more affordable than the Benefit one I use.

For eyeshadow this week, I’ll be using the new Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trios in Nude Pic: Deep and On Location. After watching Emily Noel review them on YouTube, I knew I had to give them a try. I’m also planning to try out the new Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Your Moneymaker Eye & Cheek Palette.

So, my loves, these are the products I definitely plan on trying out this week. Let me know in the comments below if you like this format for the post better than the way I usually do them.

Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
