Yes, Oh Yas! April 2019 Review
This month includes makeup and skincare products. Let’s see what look we can create with them!
A card is included with the savings percentage that YOY calculates for the included items.
Dosi The Polish Purifying Body Polish, 1 Package – Retail Value $17
This package contains a gritty mixture of dead sea salt, activated charcoal, coconut oil, coffee, and essential oils that smells just like coffee grounds. There isn’t any info on the packet, but the site says that it can be used as a smoothing body scrub or a detoxifying bath.
I like a really scrubby body scrub and this just spreads out too much to do anything for me. If I were to use this as a soak, I’d probably use the whole packet which would make for an expensive bath. Maybe I’ll use it as a foot soak to make it last longer.
Studio Makeup Line Styler Pen in Blackest Black – Retail Value $18
While the swatches of this liner didn’t give me much hope – bleeding lines, sheer color – I actually like it. It applies easily with the soft felt-tip, dries to a satin finish, and stays put all day. I’m able to achieve thin to thick lines just by changing the pressure of my stroke. I can apply it to my lashline or waterline without irritation.
Sorme Lip Brush – Retail Value $17
This lip pencil has a larger and fluffier bristle shape than most and has a totally different effect when applying color. It creates a softer wash of color that can be built up with more layers. I can still create a precise line around my lips but am able to fill in much faster. I didn’t realize this until later, but the body of the brush slides off and over the bristle end as a cap.
Bodyography Electric Lip Slide in Passion Sorbet – Retail Value $20
This lip color is so good! It’s like a lipstick, gloss, and stain in one. The mousse texture is easy to apply, smooth, and semi-opaque. At first, it looks like a satin lipstick but slowly wears down to a stain throughout the day. The color doesn’t last all day but is quick and easy to reapply. It also feels moisturizing and comfortable and I don’t feel like I have to worry about messing it up by eating or drinking.
Amor Us Lady Boss Eyeshadow Palette – Retail Value $9
Wow, look at these bright pressed pigments. This palette has a mix of matte, shimmer, and metallic shades that are all soft and velvety. They are also all very fluffy and make a mess in the pan. Surprisingly, I don’t notice a lot of fall out though. While not the richest pigmentation ever, I’m still impressed for this being a $9 palette. I’ve found that using my fingertips works best for applying these with the most intensity and least mess. I like that each row and column is set up to coordinate as an eye look. Swatches of each row are below.
Eye look #1: I used the first column of shades – Raise the Bar, Wonder, Winner – plus some Hustle in my crease.
Eye look #2: I used the shadows in the second column and last row to create this pink and purple gradient look.
Here’s my finished look using all of the products included this month. I used the Lady Boss eyeshadow palette to create Eye Look #2 (described above) and lined my eyes with the Studio Makeup Line Styler Pen. On my lips, I applied a layer of Bodyography Electric Lip Slide with the Sorme Lip Brush for a wash of color.
Verdict: This month, Yes, Oh Yas! sent items that work well together for a bold, colorful look. Each item is full size, as promised, and the total value is $81. I love the Electric Lip Slide and the Sorme Lip Brush which work so well together. At a cost of $14.99 + $3.99 for all full-size products, Yes, Oh Yas! is a low-risk way to try a wide variety of beauty and cosmetic items on a monthly basis.
