OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But first, if you haven’t already seen my earlier Sephora Paintly Pink Unboxing, here’s a little run down of what to expect and there are four which I’m so excited to talk about today. If you want to know more, keep on reading until the end and I’ll explain all.

Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Color in French Kiss

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I always wanted to try Laura Mercier products and I was super excited when I got this in this Paintly Pink Box and it’s a full size 0.12 oz. Oh Sephora! You just made my day, so thank you. All the products here are all premium as well.

Here’s a closed up look of french kiss. Look how amazing the color is and let me tell you guys, the packaging is everything. Just look at that – isn’t it gorgeous or what! Comes in a rectangle shape packaging that looks so luxe!

This is a beautiful fuchsia Velour Lovers Color Lipstick in French Kiss. It’s so creamy, smooth and soft. It feels lightweight on lips and the formula is amazingly. Very comfortable on lips. I also love the velvety finishing look. So, love this!

The pigmentation is so amazing. Super easy to glide on lips and love the staying power. I’m wearing it today and I feel super gorgeous! Yes, I know (hahaha!)

Pros: Packaging, Pigmentation, Color pay-off, Comfort, Longevity, Finish, Amazing fuchsia shade
Cons: Price a little expensive on regular size tube (CAD$34)

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pressed Rose Gold 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hmm.. I don’t remember having a Becca makeup products before and not to mention ever playing with their shimmery skin perfector. Yes, I’m such a dork! But, I don’t care. I’m just thrilled to get to play with it since I’ve been eyeing on it for a solid good year.

The color I got is in Rose Gold. I noticed there isn’t any scents to it, which is good. I like that! This pressed formula is really smooth and the pigmentation – Oh Nelly! It’s just glorious! It’s so so pretty with just one swipe I applied for highlight. They really mean business when it comes to highlight, I tell ya’. Love it so so much. And a little goes a long way.

Amazing color payoff and I couldn’t resist not to reach it. And look how cute the round packaging is!

I kid you not, you really have to try this. Ask for sample or swatch it at the nearest Sephora near you. Don’t take my word for it – just go and do it!

Pros: Awesome Color Pay-off, High Shine Finish, Nice shade
Cons: None

Make Up Forever Artist Plexi Gloss 202

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was so happy to get this lip gloss and had been reaching out for it the last few weeks. If you follow me on Instagram, you should probably had seen me posting it there. Let me know what you think in the comment.

This is a lovely coral that is noticeable on the lips but not over the top.

It comes in a doe foot shape applicator that’s flexible on the tip end. Really like this ingenious idea. The applicator take up the product with ease and it applies very well on lips. I find the formula to be quite pleasant and it didn’t bother me that much as a lip gloss. It gives a sheer glossy finish look that make lips fuller and sexier!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Awesome pigmentation, lovely formula. Easy to blend doe foot applicator, dewy and plumpy finish. It has good lasting power for a gloss but it is rather thick and a bit sticky which helps it last longer, if that make sense.
Cons: Price might be the downside 

Deborah Lipmann Nail Polish in Baby Love

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love the cute packaging. It has this luxury look that’s pleasing to the eyes.

As for application, they are surprisingly smooth. I wore this nail polish for more than a week wit 3-4 coats and I’m quite impressed with the staying power.

I’ve seen this brand and did color swatches at Winners (Canadian retail stores) before but none of the shades actually calls to me and especially the glitters ones.

But I really like this Baby Love shade though. I love that it makes my nails looks so flattering as though as they’re my nails but better !

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Love the color,  long lasting up to 7-10 days (with 3-4 coats) 
Cons: Most overpriced, sheer finishing (but layering up will make nails look  so pretty) 

I would definitely pickup a few fall colors to my collection when they’re on sale. As much as I love the formula and staying power, I wouldn’t pay $20 for a nail polish. That’s just my opinion.

Overall, I really like what I got in my Paintly Pink Sephora Favorites box. I’m very impressed and satisfied with the products I got.

I’m sure all the above-mentioned product brands are works by whoever the teams have been behind their own products, they’ve definitely done the brand justice. The prices reflect the quality of the products and the brand name they carry, so yes, they are expensive but in my opinion – it’s still worth the investment.

This concludes today’s review and swatches. I hope you find this post helpful and your enjoyed it.

As usual, thank you very much for stopping by. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Bye for now!

  1. Very nice haul! Love the color of the LM lippie. I have the Becca Rose Gold highlighter, and truth be told, it is a bit too dark, too much for me but I’ve gotta try a fan brush. Always love DL polishes!

    • Aw thank you so much Allison! Welcome back to my blog. I’m of light-medium skin-toned so the color looks flattery. Or you can mixed with lighter shade blush with Becca Rose Gold.
      It’s my first experience with DL nail polish and I really love this color very much. Not too over the top for everyday look. xo
