It's been a little while since I did a beauty review - I know, I'm super behind but have tons to share! First up is these two brands - Mun Skincare and Alima Pure.

Mun Skincare is an easy daily routine complete in 3 steps: Cleanse, Tone and Treat. Each product is meant to be more highly effective to simply your life and deliver. I love this idea for the weeks that I don't have much time and an eight step regime is just impossible.
The Cleanse really works and removes all my makeup easily. It's got a nice, thick consistency since it's oil based and I think it recommends eight drops but I use about four and that's plenty. I simply lather on my hands and rub on my face making sure I get my makeup off. Then I use a washcloth to wipe everything off. I like to rinse and wipe off twice for good measure. My skin feels nourished after and very moisturized.

The Tone has Hyaluronic acid which firms the skin and provides long-lasting hydration. I spray a couple times on a cotton pad use that to wipe my face. After this step my face actually feels like I used moisturizer but I actually haven't!

With the Treat, this is a brightening youth serum with Prickly Pear seed oil and Argan Oil which is suppose to works wonders to smooth wrinkles, repair sun damage and lighten dark spots. Luckily, I don't have many wrinkles or dark spots yet but the serum leaves my skin feeling very soft.

I've only been using Mun for about a week now but I'm definitely liking it so far!

Alima Pure is all about about minimal ingredients and maximum benefit. I've been trying out the Liquid Silk Foundation, Satin Finish Powder and the Satin Matte Eyeliner.

The Liquid Silk Foundation has a nice natural finish. It gives just enough coverage so it's definitely good for daily wear or for girls that like simple coverage. I like to finish though with the Satin Finish Powder for a more matte look. The powder feels very weightless - which I love -  and I easily apply with the foundation brush. It's a nice and fluffy brush that really gets the job done. I do have to re-powder throughout the day since I tend to get shiny but that's not uncommon for me.

So the Satin Matte Eyeliner I'm still working on. It's a bit harder to work with for me than a regular eyeliner since you have to shake out some of the loose powder but there's a little snap cap to avoid spilling it everywhere but it sort of works against you. But once I have some of the powder eyeliner, I spritz my angled brush with some water and dabbed the brush in the powder to line my eyes. It's got a nice matte finish but I'm not sure if it's waterproof, which is a definite must for me. I think this would work better for me on the eyelid rather than the undereye. I do like that you can work some smokey effects with this.
