I received my first beauty bag from Beauteque last week and am pleasantly satisfied with my Head to Toe Pink bag. The Head to Toe Pink bag has 8 products varying from skincare to cosmetic products. And as you can already tell from the name, all the products in the bag are pink! Here are the goodies that came in my February bag:
Products from L-R: Hada Senka by Shiseido (lotion or toner), Blending Sponge, Capsule Wash-Off Mask, Femme Couture Highlighting Luminizer, Tony Moly Mascara, Etude House Sleeping Spoon Cream, Tony Moly Auto Lip Liner.
Hada Senka by Shiseido: I’ve tried Shiseido products in the past and have always loved them, so I was really happy to receive this lotion/toner in my bag. Hada Senka’s lotion works great as a moisturizer. It’s more runny than other thick moisturizers I am used to but works great under makeup since it is so hydrating. I have not tried this as a toner yet, but if you’re interested in picking up this 2-in-1 product, to use as a toner, pour a bit onto a cotton swab before applying it to your face. (Retail: $15.95)
Blending Sponge: I recently jumped on the beautyblender bandwagon late last year, so practically squealed when I saw this in my bag. If you have never tried applying concealer or foundation on with a sponge before, you must try it! To use, wet the sponge and ring out the excess water. Place a bit of your liquid makeup product on your hand and dab it on the blender. Apply the product in a quick-patting motion for a flawless finish. (Retail: $15.95)
Capsule Wash-Off Mask: Anyone who knows me, knows that I loveee face masks. I have not had the time to try these wash-off masks yet but I am excited to try it out on my day off sometime next week. The mask claims that it is perfect for dealing with pores… I’ll update you all next week when I test it out. Oh, I received 2 capsules, so double the fun with this product! (Retail $2.50)
Femme Couture Highlighting Luminizer: I’m not one to brag, but my highlighting skills have definitely gotten wayyy better lately. Sidenote: My boyfriend likes to throw actual highlighters at me when I’m doing this process in the morning. When done right, highlighting gives your face a natural and healthy glow. The packaging says that this product is a cream but it’s not thick like you would think. The product is runny and can get a bit messy if you squeeze too much so be careful! A little goes a long way. This can be used alone or mixed in with foundation. (Retail: $11.50)
Tony Moly Mascara: Just in time! I needed a new mascara so badly. So glad this came in right when I needed it. Want longer looking lashes? I’m siding with this one. (Retail: $6.50)
Etude House Sleeping Spoon Cream: I love going to bed packing on my creams, so am always excited to rotate new products at night. This spoon cream claims to brighten and moisturizer the skin around the clock. (Retail: $3.95)
Tony Moly Auto Lip Liner: Ladies! This is such a beautiful rose color! It’s a shade darker than the natural color of my lips so it’s perfect for me. I am going to be using this product as a lipstick color as well since the liner has more of a creamy texture. (Retail: $7.25)
Overall, I am so stoked to try all of the products in my Head to Toe Pink bag. I was not expecting to be blown away by all the products, but I truly am. The deal is even better. It is nearly an $80 value bag for just $26. If you want this bag, it is available through March 15th at Beauteque. If you try it out, let me know what you think! xo
