Summer 2014 is in Full Swing, things at Bean Styled have been so busy we are finally catching up on our Trial and Review of the latest products we find worth your money and our time to tell you about!
Let’s Begin with the skin care and make-up products. Nugg Face Mask Hydrating is not only natural, and uses oil dispersion; learn more here http://www.nuggbeauty.com/pages/technology 94% natural, this product is great for normal, dry skin, and those with sensitive skin. Absolutely loved this product, and for the price can’t wait to stock up on more. Perfect all year, and great for that summer budget you would rather spend at the beach. This product contains, camellia seed oil, aloe, and many other natural ingredients, great to replenish after being out in the summer sun. Found this product at Target. Next up is E.L.F. Glitter Primer. For a few dollars this primer works great. With the heat and sweating this will not only make the glitter hold and pop, it will keep it lasting all day… or night. Prep your lids with concealer, then apply primer. While primer is still damp apply your glitter shadow. With natural ingredients like shea butter and JoJoba oil this product will be gentle on the eyelids.
A great facial scrub we just happen to notice on the shelf at target was Alba Botanica a natural product line extension from their original Alba. Good and Clean a Fruit acid detox Toxin release scrub is 100% Vegetarian. This product is packed with natural ingredients and 10 AHA-rich botanical’s that provides a unique fruit facial detox. Great if you have oily skin, dead skin, and those sweaty workouts.
Finally, we absolutely indulge in many different Epielle Cotton Mask. From firming to detoxing there is one for every skin type and issue. We tried the Vitamin E and Collagen for fine lines and wrinkles. Skin was instantly brighter, and lines and face looked plumped and hydrated. The second mask we have tried so far is the Green Tea and Aloe. A great way to detox the skin after a busy week, stress, or skin is looking dull. Skin looked brighter and more hydrated. Both left skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Not to mention, you may look funny. But is great for travel, and easy to apply and take off, and if you happen to fall asleep you won’t have to worry about a mess on your pillow case.
Let’s stick with the eyes and talk about Revlon’s Diamond Lust eye shadow. We found Night Sky. a Black with silver, that gives off a rainbow of color glitter. Now only is the shadow apply evenly the glitter actually is thru out the entire eyeshadow. We used it with elf glitter primer not only did it last all night, the glitter was still present. Use all over lids for a dramatic look, just the middle to add highlight, or the outer corner for a rockin smokey eye effect.
A product we have been dying to try was Ardell Dark Lash adhesive. What is great about having the dark adhesive is that if your going for that natural look you do not have to worry about applying eyeliner. An 9 times out of 10 we are applying black or a dark eyeliner when we do apply are false lashes. So it is easy to even out the “liner line”. A must have for any gal who loves her false lashes!
Cover Girl has a sister mascara out there called Flamed up. Now we enjoyed this mascara because it does not clump, and of the thickness it adds to lashes. It gives off a great natural look with some curl. The Cover Girl Flamed out mascara is still the favorite and wins in the thickness, length, and curl of the outer lashes best for that dramatic look.
Only a couple of HAIR products made the beginning summer list. First up is a great original that can’t be beat! Psssst Dry Shampoo. Not only great if your running late and don’t have time to wash the hair, but this is a great product to add texture. The one thing that stands the product apart from the rest is that is leaves no white residue. For you blondes out there you may not have a problem. But dark tresses some products leave a powder that does not absorb as well or even close to Psssst. Give it a Try today!
The other product that we have fallen in love with and definitely a new must have in the beauty arsenal is Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Moisture Whip Leave-In Conditioner. Yes you read that right, Whipped! A mouse like leave in conditioner that does not leave your hair oily, and you get every strand saturated. Great for young kids and their tangles too. A wonderful bonus is natural ingredients goji berry, passion fruit, and kiwi. This product is definitely worth 5 stars and we can’t wait to try the 1-minute Replenish treatment.
Let’s talk Nails. Just recently Sinful Colors nail polish made the news on Good Morning America beating out Chanel nail color in lasting longer and still looking fab! So with that being said we found the perfect summer color, The perfect Disney’s “Frozen” nail color, and Perfect in the fact that the glitter actually glitters! So in love with this color is has become a personal favorite we are going to have to run out and buy another bottle! Green Ocean is great layered on top of other colors or alone. Different size glitter builds the nail polish for a Gel look and shine like no other! Must Have!
Now another polish that we happen to run across at the dollar store and was a complete impulse buy was L.A. Colors Color Craze nail polish in Candy Sprinkles. Now only is this the perfect pastel pink, but it has a rainbow of colors. It reminded us of a cupcake, or as the name said Candy Sprinkles! You have to let the nail polish dry for a few minutes in between coats, but after about 4 layers this polish had a great shine and Gel look. Lasted a week on the Toes. For .99 cents we adore this!
Finally we will end this summer review with some Stylewatch StyleHunters products.
Physicians Formula New Bronze Booster with SPF 20, a Glow boosting Beauty Balm Bronzer not only protects, moisturizes, smooths, brightens, and softens lines. Not to mentions adds contour to the face. The packaging is adorable, comes with it’s own brush, and is a build-able formula. Natural ingredients like kapi kaccho seeds, and vitamin C and E helps with care of skin. This product is perfect for summer. Add a healthy glow, and keep that all natural beauty look.

Last we reviewed the Extraordinaire by L’Oreal in their Color Riche collection. Another product made with micro oils, no wonder it leaves lips smooth, non sticky and left with amazing shine that last all night. The only complaint is that the brush is flexible and the formula is light so a little goes a long way.
