RealHer Empowering Makeup Review | PR

**I received these products complimentary from RealHer, but all opinions are my own. 

Trying out RealHer makeup.

A couple of months ago, I received a very exciting package from a brand I hadn’t tried before. I will be honest and say that I don’t try “non-mainstream” brands very often. My makeup shopping is limited to Sephora, Ulta, Walmart, and Target, so unless the brand is available at any of these stores, I’ve probably never tried it. In the package I received, there was an eyeshadow palette, a lip liner, lipstick, and a liquid lipstick. This post is not sponsored in any way, I just wanted to share my thoughts on a brand I hadn’t tried before, and maybe encourage others to try out less-known brands that don’t get talked about very often. Let me know if there are any brands you’ve been curious about, and if there’s anything you’d like me to try out!

Do Your Squats Eyeshadow Palette ($28.00)

I love how cute the packaging is. This palette has some really pretty neutral shades and a couple of shades that are a bit more out there if you want to spice up your look. One of the shades, Terrific, actually reminds me of a shade in the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette Toasted palette. When I tried these, they were very easy to use, they are not super pigmented but the shades are very easy to build up. I don’t use an eyeshadow primer, which I think it’s important to point out, and I did notice that after a full day of school (about eight hours), the shadows did seem pretty faded. Not sure if an eyeshadow primer would make a difference.

There are two other “themes” available. One is Be Your Own Kind of Beauty and I Feel Beautiful. The one I received I think is my favorite. I probably would not repurchase this palette. Although I loved the way it looked and how it worked out in my eyes, I think there are more affordable shadows with a stronger lasting power.

I Am Fearless Matte Liquid Lipstick ($18.00)

The box I received was close to Valentine’s Day, so the lipstick products are very pink and follow that theme. This lipstick shade is probably my absolute favorite shade in any lipstick. I find berry shades to be so flattering. I love the packaging and the applicator. It was easy to apply, and although it is a deep shade, it wasn’t hard or messy. I know a lot of people are put off by lipsticks that are hard to work with or get all over the place. This wasn’t like that at all. It lasted well throughout the day. The way I prefer to wear matte liquid lipsticks is to dab some of the product onto my lips, and I just find this to be the most comfortable.

I would definitely repurchase this product. There are 12 shades available. There is a good variety of nudes, bolds, and pinks, and of course, I’m Ambitious, your classic red.

Boss Moisturizing Lipstick ($18.00)

This is my favorite product that I received from RealHer. With the matte lipstick trend, I had forgotten what it was like to not feel like my lips were breaking at the end of the day. This formula is so comfortable but still pigmented. I find that the appeal with matte lipsticks is how pigmented they are, but if you’re looking for that pigmentation and comfort, I definitely recommend you try these out. With ingredients like Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Seed, it is the perfect lipstick to give your lips back some nutrient. The shade I received was a plum, and it wasn’t patchy, or hard to work with. Really enjoyed wearing this one and would repurchase and try out different shades.

I Am Unique (Wine) Lip Liner ($12.50)

The last product I received was a lip liner that perfectly matched the other two products. The formula was very creamy and smooth. Lip liner is not a product I reach for, and use VERY rarely, so that’s the only reason why I wouldn’t repurchase this product. I literally never wear lip liner, even though I wear lipstick every day. Are there any beauty staples that you don’t find the need for?

About RealHer

If you noticed a pattern, you would have noticed that the name of the RealHer shades are all empowering messages. I love that! I think right now, women supporting women, and just people supporting people is so important. What better way to do that than spread that message in the makeup products that we love. Also, 20% of the RealHer profit is donated to the American Association of University Women (AAUW).

In addition, most of the products are vegan.

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼
Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼
Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!
@sephora @saturday_skin #sephora #saturdayskin #OctolyFamily
  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.
What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?
Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
