With all these facts why wouldn't you use ARBONNE?


I have tested and reviewed some of the ARBONNE products, this image is the finished look using the beauty products. 


This is the lovely package I received to review the products love the personal touch.


Makeup Primer

- This was one of the smoothest primers I have ever used.

- Easy to apply, a little goes a long way.

- You could apply the makeup straight after the primer as it dried very quickly.

- Makeup stayed on longer with the primer.


 Perfecting Liquid Foundation

Colour Soft blush from the Cool section

- This is a great foundation one of the best I have used, it is light and very easy to apply.

- It has a mat powered finish which is good if you have a slight shine to your skin.

- Lasted all day.

- This is a great foundation with amazing coverage, I would definitely recommend it.


Perfecting Liquid Foundation

Colour Alabaster from the Cool section 

- I used this under my eyes as a highlighter worked a treat.


 It's A Long Story Mascara

- Loved the comb shape brush, it was easy to apply and could get right to the roots of the lashes.

- Versatile, you can just have a thin layer or build it up for thicker lashes.

- Unusually it smells like honey even though it's vegan, it's not an unpleasant smell but slightly confused me.

- This is a great mascara I would definitely recommend it.


 It's All in the Eyes Eye Shadow

Colours used storm, Quartz & oak

- As these were samples I just applied and blended with cotton buds, you would get a better coverage with a makeup brush.

- Lasted all day which was great.

- My favourite colour was storm as it was a satin shade it gave it a better finish than the Matt ones.


 Energy Fizz Sticks 

- I like how the drink is vegan and packed full of vitamins.

- I wasn't too keen on the taste of the drink it reminded me of Berocca. It was drinkable but not enjoyable I think if it was chilled or with ice added it would be more enjoyable.


Invigorating Body Cleanser

- This was a great cleanser a little went a long way. It was a rich consistently and lathered well.

- It has a citrus smell notes of grapefruit, orange and lemon 


Conditioning Body Moisturiser

- Smooth moisturiser goes on easily and has good coverage. 

 - It has a citrus smell notes manily orange then hints of grapefruit and lemon.

- Long lasting fragrance, skin still feels as smooth as when it was first applied.  


A close up image of the makeup products I have tested.


After a full day of wearing makeup I took a picture to show how well it lasted. 

Thanks to Marie Connolly from ARBONNE. This is a quality brand and their ethical ethos is to be commended. I would definitely recommend this brand and my favourite product is the Mascara.
