I'm not a dark or bright lipstick kind of girl. I'm more of a natural, nude gloss or chapstick kind of person as I feel like color on my lips makes me look harsh. However, I wasn't about to try out 'new' to me makeup on the day of a wedding reception, so my trial run included a day of errands in 100 degree weather.
The CoverGirl Outlast Luminous foundation didn't seem all that different than the foundation I usually wear (which is also CoverGirl brand) and I didn't notice that it lasted any longer or felt or looked different than normal, but the lip color did last. Not as bright, but I found myself putting a nude gloss on a couple times through the day as the lipstick was drying and seemed to take the moisture out of my lips. No worries when a quick swipe of clear lip balm or gloss brightened them back up.
The first product I had tried was actually the instant pain and ache powder from UrgentRx. This was a product I had seen in the check-out line while shopping for household items and groceries, but had never purchased. The packaging was confusing and really, doesn't need to be, but they have you fold it a certain way and then rip a certain way to open. Once you get past the odd directions for opening the package you just pour it on your tongue and it dissolves - no water needed. The idea being 'quick and easy' on the go, from your purse or a backpack or wherever, without the need for water.
The Sahale Snacks are something most people will love... but a little sweet for me as I don't eat sweet items, including dried fruit. The nut and fruit mixture is great though, and this healthy option for a quick pick-me-up when you need it is one I like for my family. Far more healthy than sugar laden snacks or bars.
The Skinnygirl Lemon bar was good! Surprisingly so as I'm not a regular purchaser of Skinnygirl products. I can't say it stood out in any special way, except it was a good quick bar to grab 'on the go' and if you are a calorie counter (I'm not) it's only going to cost you 150 calories.

Last but not least is NanoBlur, which admittedly, is taking some practice to apply to the point where I like it. Hiding fine lines and 'blurring' those lines for a flawless finish is the look I'm going for, but so far, I'm only just now getting the hang of it and it's been 4 uses. The first time, it stung when I applied it (weird, as I've never been sensitive to anything before). You apply it with moisture or after foundation but before pressed powder. The first 3 times it was either gummy or didn't do anything at all but the 4th time, I thought my eyes looked a little brighter and the fine lines didn't show as much at the creases. The jury is still out on this product.
