100% Pure French Lavendar Hand Buttercream, Modern Minerals En Pointe Eye Shadow, Rawskinceuticals Rose Creme Cheek Color

100% Pure French Lavendar Hand Buttercream 2 oz. - It's been a long time since I have owned a 100% Pure product! My mom bought me quite a few years ago before I went natural, and I had a few more over the years. I constantly want to get more of their makeup products but I have been holding out for a long time hoping they will make palettes again. In any event this is completely unrelated to hand lotion, which is what I'm supposed to be discussing. This is nicely moisturizing and smells good, a nice earthy lavender scent that isn't overpowering to my super-sensitive nose. I'll be taking this one to work because, being an early childhood librarian, I wash my hands approximately 764 times a day and they are DRY. 

EVOLVh Leave-In Conditioner 2.5 oz. - This is a leave-in conditioner detangler. I probably won't be able to give this a fair test because I pretty much never need detangler these days. When you have short hair and regularly treat your scalp with oils you don't need a lot of hair conditioning! I could see this being useful on the days I was my hair with pine tar soap (yes, sometimes I do that) because usually that is the only time I need any conditioning. This is my first product from the brand. 

Modern Minerals En Pointe Eye Shadow .07 oz. (2 g) - The color En Pointe is a Petit Vour Exclusive. It's a shimmery mauvey pink color that goes really, really well with the Rawskinceuticals Rose Creme cheek color. This is my first Modern Minerals product and I really like it. It's both unique and yet also an everyday neutral. This could definitely be an all over the eye shadow that you use alone, which is generally my favorite kind of eyeshadow.

Rawskinceuticals Rose Creme Cheek Color .125 oz. (5 ml) - First off, this color looks absolutely nothing like the color shown on the website. To me it's a very cool toned mauvey grape shade. When I first put this on my face it looks sort of terrifying, but when I blend it in it works somehow. The coolness in this tones down the red in my cheeks a bit. This does have shea butter in it as well as kokum butter, which I don't think I've ever used before. One thing I think is really awesome is the lack of mica, because if you're looking for mica-free cosmetics it's ridiculously difficult. I'm pretty sure this is the full size .125 oz. or 5 ml. That sounds small, but this is super pigmented and will last me ages. Actually I wonder how long it will last, because the name "Rawskinceuticals" makes me think it may need to get used up quick (I have never had anything from Rawskinceuticals before), so I've been using it quite a bit!

This box was curated by MyKindofLife. This Petit Vour box was worth $43.50 and I will definitely use at least 3 of the 4 products, and will probably end up using the conditioner eventually. I got to try 3 new brands and try something I hadn't used before from a brand I already like. I'm already looking forward to the February box due to rumors of a Lily Lolo mascara!
