Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes - Review

I received these Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes from Influenster about a month ago. 

The pack only included five wipes but I think it was plenty to form an opinion.

The towel (wipe) has a quilted like texture.
It's hard to tell from this photo but they had a bit of a soapy/sudsy feel to them. 

I've used a lot of wipes and none of them every felt soapy. I didn't really like that aspect of these wipes.

Here's a little before and after, after using the wipes.

The first photo is my makeup at the end of the day. I have pretty much a full face of makeup including foundation, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, liner, and brows. 

I have to say I'm pretty impressed with these wipes. They did a great job at getting all my makeup off, including my mascara and liner. 

They didn't leave an oily feeling to my face. 

They contain vitamin E and are hypoallergenic. 

Another positive is they didn't burn my eyes! It's never fun when you use a wipe to remove your eye makeup and it stings, but I didn't have that problem at all with these.

So despite the soapy feeling I really like how these wipes performed. I definitely recommend you check out the Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes. 

You can find these at your nearest Target or drugstore.

Stila Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set - Review and Swatches

I've loved the Stila liquid lipsticks for years. I've blogged about them years ago, before liquid lipsticks were all the rage. They still remain in my top five favorites. 

I was thrilled to see this cute little set come out a couple months ago! I was going to have to pass on posting about it because it sold out but it came back in-stock on so I figured I'd share! 

The set is $39 and includes six mini liquid lipsticks. 
The packaging is cute. It's a great gift for the holidays! It would make a great stocking stuffer as well. Stick a bow on it and you're good to go! 

Another cute thing would be to gift one individually to each of you're friends with a candy cane and some ribbon tied around it! 
The shades included are Caramello, Patina, Fiery, Como, Chianti, and Aria. 

Natural light, still semi wet
L to R - Caramello, Patina, Fiery, Como, Chianti, and Aria.
Natural light, mostly dried/set

I didn't have any of these shades so this was a great choice for me. I bought it mostly for the shade Como. It was a new shade they released in the summer and I really wanted to try it. I thought it would be great to have a couple of more nude shades since I don't really have any in liquid lipstick form. 

Caramello is a flesh tone nude. It's a bit light for my taste but I can wear it with a lip pencil to make it more wearable for myself. 

Patina is a pink/mauve nude, think Kylie Jenner lip. I really love this one and have used it quite a few times already. It's an easy color to throw on when you don't know which lipstick to wear or you're in a rush.

Fiery is a classic red. I love this one! I used to have the full size years ago but used it up. Happy to have it again! Great for the holiday season! 

Como is a bright almost neon purple. I love this shade! I've only worn it a couple times but mostly because I've been embracing the Fall and wearing some deeper shades. I'm sure I'll wear this a ton in the Spring. 

Chianti is a very deep plum berry. It's a very vampy shade. I love it! 

Lastly my favorite of them all has been Aria. It's a beautiful deep magenta cranberry shade. It has honestly been my go to lipstick recently. I've been using it a lot! This is a must have in my opinion! 

These are all very long lasting. You can eat and drink with these on and they won't budge. I get a little fading on the inner lip area by the end of the day but it's very minimal. 

They can be a little drying so I recommend you exfoliate your lips prior to wearing a liquid lipstick to make sure you have a smooth surface to work with. Then apply a dab of lip balm to prime your lips, then your liquid lipstick will apply smoothly and evenly. 

I definitely recommend you check this out. I got mine from Sephora. It's not in-stock on sephoras site but they might have it in your local store. 

It is in-stock on right now though! 

Like I said this would make a great gift for the holidays, especially for a makeup junkie! :)

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!
