Sprout Makeup Plantable Eyeliner and Brow Liner

Sprout Makeup Plantable Eyeliner and Brow Liner Review, Photos, Swatches

Sprout makes plantable Eye Liner and Brow Pencils ($12.99 each; sproutworld.com) that are formulated from clean ingredients and come with a capsule at the end with seeds that can be planted. The formula is free of micro plastics and is gentle on the eyes while being allergy tested. The eyeliners come in black and brown while the brow liners come in one universal shade of brown. The formula of the eyeliner is smooth, creamy and the color is a very dark, matte black. I've used this on my water and lash lines and while it isn’t very waterproof, I like the gentle formula for not so humid days. I like to smudge it out for a quick smokey eye and I also like how easy and blendable the formula is without being overly creamy and smudgy. The brow liner is a soft brown that would work well with darker hair and maybe on some lighter ones if not used with a heavy hand. I do wish there would be more colors added to the brow liners since it is a nice formula that stays on without fading much through the day! The liners sizes are great to travel with and to toss into your bag for quick touch ups.

Jo Malone Sea Daffodil And Bitter Mandarin Colognes

Jo Malone Sea Daffodil And Bitter Mandarin Colognes Review, Photos

Sea Daffodil and Bitter Mandarin Colognes are two summer launches from Jo Malone. The fragrances are light and fresh, great to layer and also something I loved during the summer months. Bitter Mandarin ($105; sephora.com) is a zesty citrus with notes of mandarin, orange, amber, bergamot, petitgrain and iris. The opening has a slight tartness mixed with the zest from the orange and feels refreshingly clean. The amber is very mild and peeks through during dry down, though not very prominent but enough to soften the scent. The citrus notes don’t feel artificial and aren't very overpowering, while maintaining the clean freshness for a few hours. Sea Daffodil ($105; sephora.com) is a fresh aquatic fragrance with notes of Mandarin Orange, Pink Pepper, Sea Daffodil, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Vanilla and Vetiver. It's a woody aromatic in my opinion and has a light floral opening and a soft, slightly creamy dry down. The Sandalwood and Vanilla keep it interesting, while the other notes add a clean, freshness to the scent. Both the colognes had more than average longevity on a hot summer day and aren’t overly strong. The packaging is lovely and the fragrances themselves are definitely something that can be worn year round.

Nails Inc. Inside Scoop And Over The Horizon Nail Polish Sets

Nails Inc. Inside Scoop And Over The Horizon Nail Polish Sets

A quick roundup and swatches of a few nails inc. kits I’ve loved over the summer! I love the formula of Nails inc.polishes and their luxurious, wide brush that helps with effortless, even application. The On The Horizon Kit ($22; nailsinc.com) is a four piece polish set featuring bright colors in super opaque formulas. Much like most neons, this formula dries to a semi matte finish, but a good glossy top coat can fix that. The Inside Scoop (($22; nailsinc.com) is a fabulous pastel set with very wearable pastels in a glossy creme formula. Most pastels can be tricky to work with especially with my skin tone, but these are very flattering, don’t look very chalky and go on smooth. If you are still in summer mode and want some brights or soft pastels that can be worn all through the year, check these kits out from nails inc.
