Sephora Play! JUNE- The Good, The Bad and The Pretty!

**Bought It**
So, I got the above box waaaaay back in June. I got a chance to try everything in it almost to it's entirety and I am ready to share ALL of my feelings on them. The good, the bad and the pretty!  CLINIQUE
Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips
The GOOD and the PRETTY: It literally removes everything! It's an all in one for your end of the day removal. It's also oil-free so it doesn't leave you with a greasy mess when you are done using it.
The BAD: You have to use a decent amount of this product to make some movement with your removing.  A big bottle is necessary!  COVER FX
Power Play Foundation in N40
The GOOD and the PRETTY: This foundation is super light and all encompassing.  It's creamy and not oily feeling when applied.
The BAD: Cover FX claims that this blurs imperfections and is full coverage. I found that I still need add a layer of powder to cover those pesky, darker spots.  SOL DE JANEIRO

Squish This from Zoya!! Jelly Galore!!

Image
**Press Samples**
Just in time for fall, all of these gorgeous colors are perfect transition shades to get you in the mood for that sweater wearing, pumpkin consuming, leaf raking weather!  ALIA Alia is plum jelly and the first for me to show off from this trio.  Along with the rest of these jellies, Alia is completely buildable. By buildable, you can layer as many layers as you want to obtain your desired opacity. 
Molly This beauty is pink-red jelly that looks like a beautiful ripe watermelon.  I like to keep my jellies squishy, so I don't layer them too much. You can also add a thin layer, stamp a darker color and then add another layer or two of the jelly for a super fun effect. 
PARIS Fuchsia is what Zoya says this shade is, but I think it leans more towards a pinky side.  For this swatch, I used three thin layers. As you can you see, it creates a super shiny, glossy look.  Overall, I am super happy with this collection. There are only 3 other jellies in the current Zoya collec…

Crayola is Not Just for Kids!! Sally Hansen Just Made Me Throwback!

**Press Samples**
Insta-Dry x Crayola has a fabulous pastel line up and it's bringing up all kinds of childhood memories! I got three colors to show off and I am super excited to show them to you just in time for back to school!  I got to try three shades: Melon, Wisteria and Canary. All three of these are beautiful pastels and so perfectly Crayola!  For the application, I had to apply two coats to get the perfect opacity. Pastels are always tricky to apply since they already have a white coat base which tends to make them streaky upon application. Thin, multiple coats that you let dry in between is key to the perfect pastel application.  You can find your own shades with the Insta-Dri Crayola collection at Ulta, Amazon, Walmart and other big box stores. I have yet to see any in my local stores. So, they must be super popular or super hard to find!

Overall, I loved the samples I got! Canary is my favorite color and I have rocked it several times and I am usually not a yellow fan.…
