Great Way to Try New Products
To be honest, I didn't have high hopes. I've had recommendations at high end makeup stores and by brand makeup artists. All they've done is try to sell their latest releases. I only use cruelty free products and HoneyBee Gardens is a new brand to me. I figured wasting $10 on a sample packet is better than wasting $80 on a makeup bag refresh. When I opened my package I wasn't convinced. Then I tried everything out. WOW. I never would have tried shades like Bombshell, Darla and Seduction if they hadn't sent them. Foundation: I rarely use more than a pore primer and a bit of concealer, If a foundation doesn't oxidize on me, it does melt into my skin the way I want it to. I found this formula hasn't settled into my undereye skin or pores. I will mainly use this to set my undereyes and even out areas that are a bit red. They did a great job selecting shades. I wouldn't have picked the two they sent but they Supernatural was just right. Blush: Oh my gosh, they sent the most beautiful blush (Rendezvous) that doesn't settle in into my pores. It looks so natural. The shadows they sent were exactly what I needed to highlight my eyes. What I really love is how cohesive the color palette is. I can get many looks from the four shades. I don't need a large palette, I prefer something more edited. They are smooth and stay put. And finally, the lipstick. Have you ever put on lip color only to have your lips start to burn? Do you hate fake, sickly scented products? I have and I do. The lipstick is comfortable with no discernible scent or taste. Is the personalization service worth it? YES.
