On this blog I have reviewed a few different Forever Living products in the past and am in love with the Aloe Hand & Face Soap! This time I am reviewing make-up though because last month independent Forever Living distributor Rebecca Prescott sent me a selection of Flawless by Sonya cosmetics to road-test and review on my blog.
Rebecca ever so kindly organised for me to receive the following three products to try out :-
- Aloe BB Crème – Nude – £32.64
- Perfect Pair Eyeshadow – Beach – £19.66
- Flawless Volumizing Mascara – £21.36
The cosmetics all came individually boxed with the full ingredient list on the back of the box. I love the lime green and purple design packaging. It really stands out and adds to the luxury appeal of the cosmetics. It has to be said that the products I was sent are out of my usual budget for make-up so it has been really lovely to try these products out from Forever Living. It shows just how fab Rebecca is that she chose to send me all 3 of these cosmetics for review! Thanks Rebecca. 🙂
Before I tell you what I thought of my new make-up, have a watch of this video that tells you all about the Flawless By Sonya range that Rebecca sells. In the video you will also be able to see photos of the whole cosmetic collection.
Here is some information about the products I was sent and my thoughts about each of them:-
- Aloe BB Crème – Nude
At first I didn’t know whether or not I would get on with this BB (beauty balm) creme as it has some colour to it and normally whenever I apply any kind of tinted moisturiser or foundation to my face it is really obvious and I end up wiping it all away again. Thankfully I didn’t have this issue with the Aloe BB Crème in Nude. It went on very smoothly and although it is tinted I didn’t find it difficult to rub it in to my skin. It made my face look fresh and it appeared very natural. Just what I was looking for! 🙂 This BB creme is designed to make your skin look flawless and can be used as a primer or makeup base for your foundation. To be honest though, the thing I liked most about it was the fact it has SPF 20 and thus protects my face from the sun. I always find that regular sun protection lotions sting my eyes and I am happy to say that I didn’t have this issue with the BB creme from Forever Living. I also haven’t had any sun burn on my face whilst wearing it. I highly recommend this product to you as it is easy to apply and blend in plus I am delighted it offers protection from the sun.

- Perfect Pair Eyeshadow – Beach
I love the design of this duo eyeshadow compact. The eyeshadows are very subtle on your eyes and are perfect if you want to achieve a natural make-up look. The silky aloe inspired formula is designed to blend perfectly and deliver great color application and perfectly paired eyes. This compact doesn’t come with an eyeshadow applicator so you will need to apply it either with your fingertip or with an eyeshadow brush. Flawless By Sonya also sell a complete make-up brush collection set if you wanted some new brushes to add to your cosmetic bag. Normally I go for bolder shades than this ‘Beach’ duo but I do love the sheer effect of these eyeshadows as they are so versatile. They can be worn on their own or combined with other deeper colours to soften the effect of more vibrant hues. The ‘Beach’ colours are not overpowering and can easily be worn on a daily basis for a natural look to your make-up. I think they are great for highlighting the eye area. These eyeshadow duo compacts can also be bought in the following colourways – Ocean, Waterfall, Night Sky, Sand Dune and Forest.
- Flawless Volumizing Mascara – £21.36
This mascara is great! At first I found I was a bit heavy-handed with it and ended up with it smudging everywhere. The reason being that I am used to mascara being quite dry on the brush (admittedly I normally only use fairly cheap mascara though!) and so when you apply it you usually need to be heavy-handed to get good coverage. Not with this Flawless By Sonya mascara though! You only need to put the brush in the tube once and then with just the lightest touch of the mascara on your lashes you get bold black lashes that appear volumised. I do find it takes a minute to dry and the reason I discovered this is because I wear glasses and when I put them on after applying the mascara I got black smudges on the lenses. Not a big problem but it means I now make sure to remember to wait before putting my glasses back on. Also the mascara isn’t waterproof which means it is easy to remove with a simple make-up wipe or eye make-up remover. This is a proper dark black mascara that really brings attention to your eyes. The aloe inspired flawless by Sonya™ Volumizing mascara creates volume and curl for glamorous, dramatic lashes coating each lash with a velvety finish, leaving them looking beautiful, healthy and flawless.
I would also like to highlight that all of the Flawless By Sonya cosmetics are cruelty free.
If you decide you would like to order yourself some new make-up from this collection then please visit Rebecca Prescott’s Forever Living website and place your order. There are plenty of other cosmetics available that you might be tempted to add to your basket!
