Beauty Speed Review #1

April 29, 2014

Product reviews? FOTD? NOTD? I have a lot of stuff to show you that I don’t even know what to blog about first and how to blog about it. And seeing how much stuff I have to get done, this poor blog might be left behind. Simone came up with a new concept that is absolutely genius: speed reviews.


I do love small and quick posts that give you just the information you need, especially when it comes to products reviews. Speed reviews are exactly what they claim to be: short and sweet. 
Bourjois nail polishes – part of the Do you speak French manicure? collection are the shades God save the green – an intense emerald, and I like to mauve it – textured purple with gold tints. First colour can be pulled off with one coat. The second colour, not so much. These polishes are from the 1 second line: the brush is designed to make application easier. Love the emerald shade! 
OPI nail polishes – a press release didn’t come with these, but I’m guessing they’re from the Easter collection. First shade is A grape fit! which is a creamy grape colour. Second one is From A to Z-urich, a dark raspberry red. 
Benefit Big Easy BB cream – definitely not what a typical BB cream would look like. A lightweight liquid to powder formula that controls oil, balances skin and protects with SPF 35 and PA +++. What I realised is that it’s quite light when applied at first, then it matches the skin tone perfectly. So far so good. Available in May. 
Benefit Porefessional Agent Zero Shine – claims to be a translucent mattifying and pore-perfecting powder. It does control oil and shine. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do a great job at minimizing pores. However, it’s a great product for the handbag as a brush in included in it (which is the bottom part that can be twisted off). 
Jane Iredale Moonglow bronzer – Jane, you have done it again. So totally, deeply, madly in love with this. A super shimmery golden bronzer that has two highlighting shades and two bronzing shades. The final product is an instantly contoured face with highlighted cheekbones aka the perfect summer face tan. Careful though, shimmer can get all over the place. Be prepared to see this baby more often on the blog. 
This post was actually really fun to write. I’ll make sure to feature less products next time (or more if you want?) 
Have you tried any of these? Leave a comment with a speed review of your own 🙂
