QUICK TAKE: 
I appreciate the thought that was put into the packaging of these products.

truNAKED eyeshadow palette - They are sleek and have a lot of surface area for brushes.

Plumpify Blast Pro Mascara - I love the neon red brush on the Plumpify mascara wands.

Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balm - I adore the playful packaging of the Oh Sugar! lip balms.


USAGE TIPS: 
truNaked Eyeshadow Palette - Using an eye primer is a must.  I like to start with the matte eye shadows first and build from lightest shade to darkest shade.  Then I layer the shimmer eye shadows (from lightest to darkest) on top of the matte base.

Plumpify BlastPro Mascara - The mascara has a large brush head, so it will take some getting use to.  I like rotating the brush as I sweep the product through my lashes.  I also use the waterproof version to avoid droopy lashes.

Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balm - Try to keep the layers of balm light.  Applying too much can make your lips appear greasy in texture or splotchy in color.


THE VERDICT:
truNaked Eyeshadow Palette - LOVE LOVE LOVE!  I tend to steer clear of eyeshadows, because I don't have a lot of surface area to work with on my asian monolids.  Eyeshadows can look ridiculous on me, so I was surprised and impressed with how user friendly this palette is.  Every shade is beautiful and looks really great on my golden skin tone.

Plumpify BlastPro Mascara - Covergirl is my favorite drugstore brand for mascaras, and they really knocked it out of the park with this one.  It does such a great job at adding volume to my sparse lashes and the special brush really helps lift and curl each lash.

Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balm - I love the Covergirl LipSlicks Smoochies Lip Balms, but I always thought they were a bit too pigmented for everyday use.  I consider Smoochies to be more of a super hydrating lipstick.  The Oh Sugar! Lip Balms are very sheer and are perfect for everyday use.  They feel less balmy on my lips and have more of a gel-like consistency.  I did notice that it's not very long-lasting, so I found myself constantly reapplying.  For that reason, I feel like these new balms could be better, but I'm satisfied for the most part.
