My Honest Review of Merit Beauty

Over the last year running a business with a family of five, I’ve realized I can’t do it all. With the little time I have, I need to be productive and effective in every area. If that means taking my 20 minutes tasks and turning them into 5-10 minute tasks it allows more time for my other small daily tasks! I need minimalist ways to look polished and I was immediately drawn to their aesthetic. I receive my Merit beauty last week and I wanted to share my honest review of Merit Beauty on the blog.

This product I’ve been seeing everywhere, and was so excited to get my hands on it! As many of us discovered this year which I’ve learned, LESS IS MORE. I was looking for a more minimalistic approach to everything including beauty and the Merit arrived.

My Honest Review of Merit Beauty

Personally for me, I was super impressed with the sleek packaging and the branding as a whole. Their overall statement really spoke to me about LESS is MORE. As a busy mom, I need minimalist ways to look polished and I was immediately drawn to their aesthetic.

This cream blush just got restocked and I can’t wait to get it. It comes in 5 colors. They have a deep burgundy and a beautiful raspberry which are my favorite shades in the flush balm.

Brow 1980 // Volumizing Pomade: A not to the bros of the ’80s, this pomade adds color and volume for healthy, fluffy arches. As brows are trending more than ever, brow gels are becoming ever so popular and the brow 1980 is one to try.

Clean Lash // Lengthening Mascara: tints, lengthens and lifts lashes, with no smudging. A clean lash mascara get a 4.5 rating on reviews and as we all know finding a good clean mascara can be challenging..This is one of the two I’ve heard is the best for a clean lash. The second one is Westman Atelier Mascara.

Day Glow // Highlighting Balm: Made for daytime, this highlighter gives a dewy balmy sheen with zero sparkle. This highlighting balm is the perfect option to add a summer or golden glow.

Merit Beauty Product Review

Now, to my review! I was so excited to try the minimalistic complexion stick and blending brush.

You simply apply to the areas of concern. I did under my eyes and my red and dark spots. At first, I had wondered if I ordered the wrong color but I was pleasantly please once I started blending that it was perfect. And as I mentioned they offer 20 shades so it’s easy to find what matches your skin tone best.

For my 5 minute makeup routine I used the minimalist perfecting complexion stick. I am so impressed these beauty products was not only full coverage lightweight! The product is also so creamy and very easy to blend with the blending brush. Even when I play around with other foundations, I always grab this brush!

I had watched Katherine’s video of minimalist beauty makeup products in 5 minutes or under and tried it myself. Needless to say, I am so pleased with the results, I am waiting patiently for the brow and mascara and creamy cheek color to arrive!
