As a member of the Glam Beauty Board, I received a {huge} box of beauty products for a fall makeover. From head to toe, Glam thought of everything and included a little bit of everything ranging from drugstore to department store brands. There’s a ton of stuff, so let’s get started!

~~~~~ {Skincare} ~~~~~

Pur: Laface Cleanser ($48): This cleanser provides a great lather and leaves your face feeling clean. I love using it with my Clarisonic because it’s a bit watery and spreads easily. ps… the bottle is HUGE (7.6oz). I’ll (happily) use this bottle for a long time. :)

Dr. Lewinn: Kinerase Day & Night Cream ($27): After cleansing your face, a moisturizer is a must. This velvety cream has a great consistency, smell and feels great on the skin. It’s jam packed with anti-oxidants, a must have for anti-aging. With the colder months coming up, I know I’ll be reaching for this bottle regularly. Really happy I got to try it out.

~~~~~ {Makeup} ~~~~~

Almay Wake Up: Eyeliner & Highlighter ($8.99): I LOVE this little eyeliner and highlighter duo. It’s probably my favorite item in the entire box! That’s saying a lot since there’s a ton of amazing products in this box. The eyeliner is great for creating a smokey eye and the highlighter is a beautiful sheer gold color with sparkles. You’ll be happy to know that this eyeliner stays put once it sets. Check out my Instagram profile picture to see the Cleopatra eye look I created with this pencil duo. Comes in 3 color combinations.

Almay Wake Up: Liquid Foundation ($10.99): This foundation is great for dry skin like mine. It provides light coverage and comes in 6 shades. I got buff which works well with my yellow-y Asian skin. :)

Almay Wake Up: Eyeshadow & Primer in Invigorate ($8.99): I absolutely love the highlighter in this palette. It’s a beautiful champagne color that’s great as an all over color, or used with the highlighter and/or lid color! The crease color is amazing too. Available in 3 color palettes: Invigorate, Revive, and Exhilarate.

Benefit: Bella Bamba Blush ($28): This is a vibrant pink blush with a touch of gold sparkles. Below is a swatch of Benefit’s Bella Bamba compared to Hervana. Bella Bamba is definitely for those days you want an extra pop of color. :) And of course, it smells amazing.

Mark: Make It Rich Lip Crayon in Royale ($11): This full coverage lip crayon glides on like butter. Wow. The staying power of a lipstick, but the feel of a lip balm. I can’t wait to try out the other 5 colors… especially Hey Honey and Naturally.

Lorac: TANtalizer Highlighter & Bronzer ($32): (Swatches below: heavy and blended out.)
I recently did a review of some other TANtalizer products and was super excited to receive this highlighter and bronzer duo. The luminizing highlighter is very subtle which is perfect for everyday wear. It’s also great as an all over eyeshadow. :)
I’ve been using the matte bronzer everyday and loving it. It’s completely matte and a great shade for my light skin. Blends easily and leaves my skin looking sun kissed. Love, love, love this one.

Orly: Smolder ($4.99): One of the beautiful colors from the All Fired Up Collection. Smolder is a beautiful shimmery wine that is absolutely perfect for fall and the upcoming holiday season.

Modella Makeup Bag ($5): Always good to have a little cute makeup bag. It’s the perfect size to hold my essentials on the go.

~~~~~ {Hair} ~~~~~

Dove: Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo ($4.75) & Conditioner ($4.75): I love how moisturizing and gentle all the Dove hair care products are. :) The Nourishing Oil Care line is no different. A great deal at under $5 bucks.

Ojon: Super Sleek ($25): Ojon really kept my hair smooth in the recent heat we’ve been experiencing in Los Angeles. Even when I don’t blow dry my hair, I use it on my slightly wavy hair to keep frizz at bay.

~~~~~ {Body} ~~~~~

Eucerin: Daily Protection ($6.99): This lotion provides lightweight moisture and even provides sun protection. Fragrance free and absorbs quickly, making it perfect for all seasons. :)

Juara: Coffee Scrub ($37): Wowza! Coffee drinkers and non-drinkers alike… get ready to become addicted. Juara’s body scrub cleans, provides a great exfoliation AND leaves your skin feeling soft sans the yucky oily residue (often left by other scrubs). Perfection. The smell? A-Ma-Zing. Love, love, love this one too. :)

Wow… that was a lot of products to get through!
Which products will you be trying out?!
