Recently, I started using Hean products (read two weeks ago) and I wanted to give it some time before I actually formed some opinions on it. And if you know me, or even if you don’t know me, you should know that I always have an opinion on everything. Now, you get to hear my opinion on Hean.
Lemme start with this: my skin is SUPER sensitive! And I mean SUPER! Any mascara I have ever used caused my eyes to water and I had to take it off immediately. My skin reacts the same to all sorts of eyeshadows, some foundations (especially compact powders) and don’t even get me started on eyeliner… So as you can imagine, Hean would have to be an exceptional brand for ME to achieve the desired results (not taking it off in 20 seconds) and to actually enjoy wearing the product.
That being said, here’s what I’ve been wearing for the last few weeks:
This is the Maxxi Flex Mascara. Here’s what I love about it: it’s long-lasting (by this I mean, I can apply it in the morning, spend 8 hours at university and my eyelashes STILL look amazing); it doesn’t crumble when I rub my eyes; it’s waterproof (water and tears- trust me!); it did not annoy my eyes AT ALL! The brush came in contact with my eyelashes and my eyes did not water- a true miracle! This mascara makes my eyelashes look long and beautiful (and my eyelashes are stompies- thanks mom).
The Mat Effect Foundation in Pastel is another product I have been using. I have combination skin (oily in Summer) so this foundation is PERFECT for me! Here’s an amazing bonus (story coming your way): I go to UCT and I park on middle campus, which means I have to walk up Jammie Steps– like 200 steps, in the heat (today was 36!!) and hope & pray that my makeup stays on! Here’s the bonus (finally): it adheres like a dream! This foundation kept my complexion smooth and even the whole day! WONDERFUL!
The Mattifying Rice Powder in 302. I apply this over my foundation just for a bright look. It also is great for touch ups, just in case of emergencies. Which even in the heat, I haven’t had yet! (BIG SMILES)
Finally my look is completed by the Vitamin Cocktail Lipstick in Sweet Kiss (164). This lipstick is love and perfection! It also lasts the whole day, moisturizes my lips, keeps them hydrated and most importantly: looking fabulous!
This is me, giving Hean a HUGE thumbs up! I have concluded that this range is anti-allergenic, mild for sensitive skins, long-lasting and just AMAZING!
