Born Pretty Store Review #2

Born Pretty Store

If you’ve been following my blog, a couple of months ago Born Pretty Store contacted me about trying some of their products in return for honest reviews. You can read my reviews for the three products I tried here but to put it simply: I loved one item, I liked one item, and I was meh about the third.

Nevertheless, even though I didn’t rave about all of the items, Born Pretty was really happy with the thoroughness and objectivity of my reviews so when they asked me if I’d be interested in testing and reviewing even more items I said heck yeah! I love and support companies that can handle honest opinions and criticism. And I love trying beauty products.

theBalm Balm Desert

theBalm Balm Desert

A couple of weeks ago theBalm ran one of their 50% sitewide sales which is always exciting. They’re also always really frustrating because their website never seems to be able to handle all of the traffic even though they’ve been doing these sales for several years now. Luckily for me there was only one product I was interested in, the new Balm Desert bronzer/blush, and it stayed in stock even though it took me nearly an hour to checkout.

Balm Desert normally retails for $21 (6.39 g/0.225 oz).

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about my monthly favorites but now that I’ve let go of my hoarding tendencies and reduced my stash, I don’t often have a lot new or interesting products to share. The makeup items that I reached for throughout the winter and spring honestly didn’t change that much, so it would’ve been boring to keep blogging about the same things over and over again. However, now that we’re fully into summer, I’ve not only changed up my go to products but I’ve also incorporated some brighter colors.

June Empties

June Empties

Empties blog posts are a rarity for me. I’m constantly buying and trying new products so I always have a 12+ products in use at any given time. Also, it’s not like I start using them at the same time so they’re all at varying points of fullness/emptiness and I’m not the type of person to hang onto empty bottles. Whenever I use a product up, I toss the bottle into the trash or recycling bin, so I rarely have anything worth showing at the end of the month. Honestly, I’m in awe of YouTubers who have huge bins full of empties each month. That’s impressive. I feel like it takes forever for me to finish anything up.

This month, though, I made an effort to hang onto my empties because there are a couple of items here worth reviewing albeit briefly.
