Ok, ladies, let’s talk makeup for a minute. As business women, we need to look our best when we’re representing our businesses. With Hodge Podge’s Incognito Cosmetics, you can look flawless without spending a ton of that hard earned money you’ve earned. With Hodge Podge being a new company, I wasn’t 100% sure I would like their cosmetics, but you don’t know if you like something if you don’t try it, right? So, that’s what I did. I made up a wish list of the things I wanted to try, and every week I’ve purchased a few things from my list. So far, I have the Fiber Lash Mascara ($17.99), Precision Eye Defining Pen ($12.99), Mineral Pressed Face Powder ($19.99), Forever Lips Liquid to Matte Lipstick ($15.99), Shine Lip Gloss ($12.99), and the Mild Trance 5 Shade Eyeshadow Palette ($15.99). I must say, I am really impressed with everything I’ve bought, so far. What impresses me most is that all of the cosmetics are paraben, carcinogen, and cruelty free, which should be a major factor to consider when purchasing cosmetics. Parabens and carcinogens are known to cause cancer. You shouldn’t put them on your face. Keep reading to check out my review for each product.
Mineral Pressed Face Powder
I was hesitant to buy the pressed powder, as I usually prefer a loose mineral powder. However, the Mineral Pressed Face Powder from Hodge Podge delivered beautiful results. The coverage is simply amazing! At first, it seemed like it was too light for my skin tone, but by the time I finished with the rest of my makeup, it had blended in for a flawless finish. It also stays looking fresh for a very long time!
Mild Trance 5 Shade Full Eyeshadow Palette
I absolutely LOVE eyeshadow! With this palette, I can create beautiful day to night looks with ease. The shadows glide on so smoothly, and are highly pigmented. This palette makes creating the smoky eye look so simple. It also lasts a long time without creasing. However, I do recommend buying an eye primer, which will help keep creasing at a minimum. Now that I have the natural shades, I plan on purchasing more bold colors. Since I purchased the Mild Trance Palette, other 5 Shade Palettes have been added, such as Ibiza Nights, which looks like it will really make my eyes pop.
Precision Eye Defining Pen
O. M. G! This pen is ah-mazing! Creating the wing tip has never been so easy! The felt tip of this pen allows for easy application and precision. It goes on smoothly, and doesn’t lift off onto your eyelid when you look up. I am so happy I added this product to my collection! In the photo below, I created the winged liner with only one try! It really is that easy! I also apply it to my lower lash line, and it stays put! No raccoon eyes here, ladies.
Forever Lips Liquid to Matte Lipstick
Ok, so this is actually my favorite product, so far. I have the Delightful shade, and the color is absolutely gorgeous! It goes on wet, and creates a beautiful matte look within seconds. This lipstick also lasts FOREVER! I can eat, drink, and kiss without it coming off! I am so impressed with this product, I plan on buying all of the shades. I never really liked matte lipsticks, because they tend to start peeling and caking. I can’t stand that. I don’t even feel like I’m wearing lipstick, when I wear this. I also feel like it somehow adds volume to my lips. I have very thin lips, so that is definitely a plus for me.
Shine Lip Gloss
This lip gloss is great! Great for adding a subtle shine to your lips when you want to look natural. Or adds a little shine to your lipstick. I bought the French Bloom shade, and it is a beautiful color. Adds just a hint of pink to my bare lips.
Fiber Fused Mascara
The Fiber Fused Mascara is awesome. I couldn’t believe how big the tube was! You get so much for such a small price! It’s a one-step process that lengthens and volumizes your lashes without clumping. It is also affordable at only $17.95, which is half the price of that other company. So, if you’re looking for an affordable, cruelty, paraben, and carcinogen free fiber mascara, I highly recommend the Fiber Lash Mascara from Incognito Cosmetics by Endless Xpressions You can find it in the Cosmetics category under Eyes.
Update 12/14/2016: I am excited to announce that Hodge Podge has merged with it’s sister site, Endless Xpressions. From 12/09/2016 until 01/01/2017, Hodge Podge products will be gradually moved over to the Endless Xpressions website. So, if you’re looking for a certain product, and you’re not finding it on the Hodge Podge website, head on over to the EX website to look for the product.
