I recently became acquainted with Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques, and I had the opportunity to try several of their products.
I was sent a sample size of the Organic Facial Serum. The serum contains cold-pressed Certified Organic Plant oils, which is a process that preserves the potentcy of the ingredients. This skin-tightening serum combines Organic Jojoba, Evening Primrose, Rosehip and Pomegranate oils, all known for their absorbent, emollient-rich, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, Pumpkin Seed and Sea Buckthorn oils are added with their high Vitamins C, E and A content. Minerals and Essential Fatty Acids are added to deeply nourish and restore elasticity. The sample was pretty small, but only a small amount is needed. I found that the serum absorbed quickly, and didn't leave my face feeling oily or sticky. It actually left me with a healthy glow, and my face soft and moisturized. This is definitely an amazing product. I will purchase the full size product, and I'll be anxious to see the long term benefits of this serum. I'm impressed with this one!
Like many women, I'm forever looking for the perfect eye cream. My first lines showed up under them, and I've been on the search ever since. I have found several that I really really like, but of course, I asked Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques if I could try their Eye Firming Cream. I like that it's in a stick form, because I can throw it in my bag. Since there are no pores in that area, and because the skin is thinner, we need to use something other than our regular facial moisturizer on our eyes. Their Eye Firming Cream is an age-defying cream for healthy, beautiful looking skin. It is packed with great ingredients like Comfrey, Lecithin, Pumpkin oil, Eyebright, Carrot Seed oil, Burdock, Frankincense, Plantain and Argan oil. Don't let the stick form fool you into thinking that the Eye Firming Cream might be waxy or leave the eye area oily. It absorbs easily, but leaves the eye area soft and bright.

I really like wearing cream eyeshadows, but it seems like they get dry and crack easily in the compact, or that they crease easily. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques sent me one full size cream shadow, and a sample of another color. Cream shadows are pretty quick and easy to apply, and these were terrific. They also smell like vanilla, which was enough to make me want them in every color! They can be worn alone, or under other shadows as a base. These shadows are good for your skin, too! They contain Shea Butter, Rosehip, Vitamin E Oil and Jojoba Oil. The two colors that I requested were Dulce de Leche and Cocoa Latte. They look amazing together, and applied really quickly. I will absolutely be purchasing the Cocoa Latte when my sample is gone (and maybe a few other colors, too).
I was also sent a Pressed Eyeshadow Compact duo of Chestnut and Vanilla Creme. The Dulce de Leche cream shadow makes a terrific base for these shadows! Lauren Brooke's powder shadows are richly pigmented, go on smoothly, blend easily and and are very long wearing. The powder shadows contain great stuff for your skin, including Zinc, Broccoli Seed, Orange Peel Wax, Lechithin, Jojoba and Allantoin. I love it that Lauren Brooke's color cosmetics are packed with great ingredients that many companies save for their skincare.
I was also sent a sample of the Lauren Brooke Lash Conditioner, which is made with a blend of Vitamins, Herbs and Extracts to feed and protect your lashes. Again, I was impressed when I read about the great ingredients in the product. The Lash Conditioner contains a Vitamin B Complex, Chia Seed, Horsetail and Burdock. Since I was sent a sample, it felt a little odd to apply this product with a cotton swab, but I could feel the hydration right away. This is a product that I will be purchasing, as I'm anxious to see the long term effects!
If I'm looking for the best eye cream on the market, I should probably add mascara to the same list. My lashes are pretty long, but they're blonde, and I wear glasses, so I want them to stand out. Then, I worry about it running or it smudging under my eyes after a long day. I also like separation. I'm pretty picky! I tried a sample of the Lauren Brooke Lash Strengthening Mascara in Espresso. This is a new formula that strengthens, lengthens and protects lashes with a blend of vitamins, herbs and extracts like Organic Horsetail, Organic Nettle, Burdock, Aloe and a Vitamin B Complex. I found that this mascara separates well, and because I ordered it in Espresso, it was very natural looking, while it nicely darkened my lashes. I would say this is a wonderful everyday mascara.
So, you may already know that I'm not just a cosmetics addict, I'm also lip balm obsessed, and I've made my husband an addict as well. I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to lip balms, and when we moved, we found them in every room of the house. Still, I probably buy one every time I order from Sephora, I have a monthly subscription of lip balms, and probably fifty that are in regular use. I'm so weird. So, obviously, I requested a Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques' Vanilla Mint Lip Moisturizer. It goes on smoothly, it isn't clumpy at all, and it definitely works! It contains Beeswax, Coconut (my favorite ingredient out there right now), Pomegranate, Vitamin E Oil, and Stevia Leaf. It's definitely a lip balm that I reach for often.
I was sent two samples of ColourFusion Lip Glaze, one in Guava, and the other in Pomegranate. The Lip Glaze is infused with quadruple the color for a bold and beautiful lip shade. I really like both colors, and I've applied them both with my finger, and with a lip brush. If you use your finger, the Lip Glazes are more sheer, but you get more color using a brush. It's always nice to have options! I found the colors to be extremely flattering-the Pomegranate is a bit darker, but still perfect for any occasion. They also last a long time, so I wasn't worried about reapplying. These will also be on my purchase list!
