THRIVE CAUSEMETICS REVIEW

I can’t tell you how many times I have been out and about and have accidentally “whipped off” one of my eyebrows. Or taken a peak in the mirror to notice I started the day looking fresh and put together but now I look like a racoon. On summer days I will go so far as to avoid putting on makeup altogether for fear my face will melt off at some point throughout the day. Needless to say seeing a fabulous green beauty product line that not only had an amazing purpose, but amazing products, AND they are waterproof. Well I can’t wait to tell you everything.

Thrive Infinity Lash Adhesive

INFINITY WATERPROOF LASH ADHESIVE

I was so excited, and a little intimidated to try the lash adhesive. It has been a few years since I have used false lashes! Following the instructions, I first lined my lashes with eyeliner. Then I applied the adhesive on the base of the faux lashes and bent them in a horseshoe shape for a minute. Then I tapped and pressed the faux eyelashes onto my eyelid.

First of all this glue is better than any other lash glue I have ever tried. It is so thin I had no problem applying it to my faux lashes. I was nervous I might not have put enough on, when I tapped them to my lid I was able to move them until I had them placed just right on my eyelid. My fingers were not covered in glue. My eyelid didn’t have glue residue either. Win, Win. Problems of the past!!!

Now for the true test. I wore them for an entire day playing with my two kids. And if they can withstand all that without falling off, that is saying something. In the past when I wore false lashes I ALWAYS kept a bobby pin and tube of eyelash glue in my purse just in case I bumped them or they started to fall off. I purposely left the glue at home because this was a test of durability after all.

They stayed perfectly in place all day long. I actually didn’t even notice they were on by the time I got home! The instructions say to use an oil based cleanser to remove. I went old school and just peeled them off. No irritation at all, they were very easy to remove. Another win the glue was easily removed from the lashes themselves for future uses.

All around win. Whether you are a green products junkie or not this Infinity Lash Adhesive is a MUST HAVE! This should be in every brides and summer babes makeup kit.

INFINITY WATERPROOF EYELINER

Lately I have been obsessed with creating what I call the “Lisa Rinna” eye. Basically a daytime smokey eye, that takes less than 5 minutes, and you can’t mess it up. The infinity waterproof eyeliner is the perfect starting point. It is soft and so easy to apply AND it has a smudge tip at the end to blend easily. It is a twist up pencil and has a built in sharpener for creating a fine line as well. The pigments are rich and creamy. Best part is it actually stays put!

So to create my favorite eye! Line your lid with Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner and then smudge to create a thick line on your upper lid and a fine line on your lower lid. Pick an eyeshadow a shade lighter than your eyeliner. I like to use Thrive Infinity Eyeliner in Slate Grey, and the Dawn shade (shimmery rose brown) from my Jane Iredale In the Blink of a Smokey Eye pallet. For an extra umph I like to put the Rose Gold (shimmery rose gold) from the same pallet in the crease and Pure Gold (shimmery bright gold) under the arch of my brow and to highlight the rest of my face.

DESCRIPTION

Our highly-pigmented, waterproof eyeliner glides on smoothly to deliver intense, vibrant color with staying power. Our proprietary formula contains shea butter, sodium hyaluronate and ceramides for younger-looking lids and conditioned lashes.

The twist-up pencil includes a built-in sharpener for creating ultra-fine lines and an ergonomically-angled smudge tip for smooth, effortless blending.

INFINITY WATERPROOF EYEBROW LINER

I have been accentuating my eyebrows for over a decade now. I even tint my eyebrows but nothing compares to how fabulous they look when they are accentuated by an eyebrow liner. And I can’t tell you how many times I have also inadvertently rubbed off one of my eyebrows! In the past when I have been out on the water or in the summer I have avoided filling them in all together for fear my eyebrows would smear off.

Thrive’s Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Liner goes on smooth and creamy. Allowing you to expertly define your brow and use the brush at the end to blend it in. Best part is it also stays put! You can create a very natural brown with light, little to no eyebrows and also create a dramatic defined look for those of you with thick unruly brows!

DESCRIPTION

This eyebrow perfector combines the benefits of a waterproof pencil, wax and powder in one. The ultra­-fine retractable pencil allows for tailor­-made strokes that fill in gaps and mimic brow hair. Buildable Smart Pigments™ adjust to your eyebrow color for a perfect match and beautiful brows every time.
