Mini Reviews: Sinful Colors, ELF, Ponds

Its been a while since I’ve done a mini reviews post! This one will be on a couple products I received in a recent giveaway as well as a product I received in my Target sample bag.

Sinful Colors polish in “Oasis”
I’ve always wanted to try a Sinful Colors polish…I kept seeing them in the drugstore and they’re so inexpensive! The color I received was a very bright neon pink with a hint of duochrome. Since its too bright for my nails (at least in my office environment, otherwise I’d totally rock it), I decided to use it on my toes. It applied very evenly and I was super impressed at the color…I didn’t need a million coats of it for the color to be exactly how it was in the bottle. I actually would have been fine with one coat, but I did two. Very pigmented polish! I will definitely keep an eye out for more Sinful Colors polishes.

The color of this gloss is very pretty…its a bright pink but goes on fairly sheer. It also tastes really good (like cherry I think). I’m not a huge fan of the applicator, though. I’ve actually never been able to master the brush applicators where you have to click to get the product through. Maybe I’m just not doing it right, but it seems like I either get too much product or not enough (usually the latter). A lot of people seem to prefer the brush to the doe foot applicator…so maybe I’m just weird lol! Overall, I really like the actual gloss though…just takes some time to apply it 😛

While I usually use Neutrogena wipes, I decided to give these a try when I received a sample of them from Target. They removed all my makeup (including mascara). My makeup does tend to be on the light side, though, so if you wear heavy makeup these might not work well for you. They also have a very calming scent, which I love. They are very soapy, but as far as I can tell I haven’t broken out from them (and I didn’t rinse afterward). These are okay, but I probably wouldn’t purchase the full size of these as I think my Neutrogena wipes are better.
