I am bringing back the Hate It or Love It posts. Wow! I haven’t done one of these since February. Can you say slack?! Last week I received two makeup samples from Thevi Cosmetics. For those of you who don’t know, Thevi Cosmetics was started by Thevaki Thambirajah as a colorful makeup line for multi-ethnic skin.
I want to thank Thevi Cosmetics for sending me these samples because they are actually great. I have yet to receive bad samples from companies in the mail *knocks on wood*. They sent the Lush Mascara in Lush Black and the High Impact Lipstick in Godiva.
Let me just say this off the bat. I am not a lipstick wearer, so I was about to give it to Mom instead. Something lit up in the back of my mind, and made me try it anyway. It is so soft and smooth. Very,very easy to apply.It isn’t one of those lipsticks that runs all over your face instead of you lips. The color is really beautiful, but I was scared that it would be a little too dark for me. I usually use Aquaphor or Lip Smackers, but I actually liked this color. I can see it as something I would use at night or during the cold weather months.
The mascara was great too because it was very hard to clump. No matter how many coats I put on, it didn’t clump. I actually counted 4 coats and still no clumpage. The mascara is really light, so my lashes look fresh instead of super intense. The brush is long and thin enough to get all of my lashes, even the littlest ones. Another thing I like is the fact that my mascara hasn’t fallen in my eyes yet. I can’t say the same thing about my fav go to brand. I might have to switch. The mascara cost $12.00 and the lipstick costs $13.00.
