Pony Effect Stay Fit Matte Lip Color
This is described as an ultra-pigmented lipstick that applies creamy and dries to a long-lasting matte finish that won’t overly dry out.
Number of days tried: 2
Hours worn: approximately 24
Pros: lipstick is indeed ultra pigmented. It does apply creamy and quickly dries to a matte finish. It is definitely long-lasting. So much so, you need lipstick remover or soap and water to get it off completely. It’s a matte lipstick so it does dry out, but as long as you don’t put on too much you don’t really notice in any insistent way.
Cons: If you happen to have lines in your lips it will settle into your lines and make your lips look very wrinkly.
Recommendation: If your lips don’t have a lot of fine lines this product is worth trying. If your lips do have a lot of fine lines you should probably avoid it. For that matter you should reconsider matte lipstick altogether unless it is specifically made for aging lips.
Bonvivant Botanical Pure Mask
“This mask was interesting to use. The package was in Korean so I had no idea how to use it. I simply removed it from the package, put it on my face and kept it on until the mask began to dry out. It felt nice and cooling for a while. Of course after 1 use I can’t say it did anything in particular to my face. But I liked it well enough to want to try it again.”
Information about this mask from the memebox.com website:

Nooni Deep Water Therapy Facial Cream
According to the information on the card that was included in the Bonus Box, this product replenishes collagen. We are currently trying out the product. It’s of course too early to comment on whether or not the product does what it claims.
It’s always nice to be able to try new things . We thank memebox.com for giving us the opportunity to try their products. And we thank the guys at Rakuten Marketing for sending us the Bonus Box. If you’re a blogger and you don’t belong to the Rakuten Affiliate Network, go join!
