October Beauty Review & My Favorite Sephora Minis

 

Hey everyone! So today we’re going to do my a two part post. First will be my November beauty in review and followed by My Favorite Sephora Minis. I’m very excited to be doing this post and I hope you guys will enjoy it. I’ve quite a few products that I want to go through so let’s just jump right in.

I’ve only two skincare products that I wanted to rave about and it’s the Paula’s Choice Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer, well that’s a mouthful and this Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is a gift from my daughter.

Oh my gosh, these packaging are really cute. I was sent the Paula Choice’s item by a pr company and I’ve been liking it ever since. I did a review about it awhile ago and I’ll put a link here if you like to read it.

Moisturizer by Paula's Choice

Here’s the formula with a good consistency. It’s not runny nor too thick. It helps hydrate the skin and prevent it from UV light. It contains SPF 25 and if you’ve normal or dry skin types then you’re going to like this.

The second product and it’s the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which is a birthday gift my daughter picked up from Sephora. She knows I’m obsessed with skincare stuff so she gifted it to me.

Caudalie Serum Eclat

It was my first time trying a serum from this brand and I was really blown me away. All reviews that I’ve seen on this have had the same reaction which is, I saw the results overnight. It’s a huge claim but this really surprised me the first day I tried it. It has                           in it and if you’ve hyperpigmentation scars or fine wrinkles, this is amazing. I’ve been using it for over 2 weeks or so and I find this helps in lighten those areas amazingly.

The Physician Formula Butter Blush in Natural Glow is the least that I’m excited about. I’m really disappointed with the formula and the color payoff. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the cute packaging but the color and formula of this just didn’t cut it for me. It didn’t do anything as far as I can see from a blush. The shade is very pale and I think it would be great for a highlighter than a blush in my opinion. It just didn’t give me the color that I was looking for.

I’m thinking of returning this one for something different.  So yeah, I wasn’t really particular about this. Sad to say that this doesnt work out for me. I was really dissappointed because I was looking forward to trying this but sometimes that happens.

Moving on, I”m going to talk about some of my all time favorite minis that I decided to revisit and have been loving. Sephora came out with what they call mini sizes products this holiday season so if that’s your thing, then you’re going to like these.

URBAN DECAY Naked2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette (C$36) I’ve tried this palette for a very long time and it’s still my favorite neutral matte color eyeshadow palette by far. It comes in a small and compact palette that’s travel friendly and easy to use. You get six lovely matte shadows that’s versatile and pigmented. It gives a nice matte finish that’s subtle and for extra long staying power, wear it on top of a primer. It works everytime for me. Urban Decay is a cruelty free brand that commits to end animal testing.

TARTE Tartelette Tease (C$30) is another palette that I’ve with me for a very long time.  This is a six pan eyeshadow palette. It has a nice mix of matte and shimmery shadows.  The texture and the color payoff is just smooth as silk and amazing. Absolutely love this palette. If you’re looking for a neutral nude eyeshadow palette, this one is made for you. Really gorgeous and I absolutely love the colors and the texture. I’m obsessed, don’t know if you can tell! But anyways, I’m excited to do a #EOTD makeup tutorial on my Instagram post. So yeah, don’t forget to stay tuned!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Mini (C$16) is my latest concealer I’ve tried and was totally hooked. I got it in the shade custard which is closer to my natural skin tone just around my face if you’re my skin coloring which is like an NC20-25. It also has become my go-to product. I think it’s a great high end product to have if you feel like a little spendy. The doe foot applicator is awesome and the formula so easy to blend. It looks really good on the under eye areas as well as around the face. Definitely check this one out!

BECCA Champagne Glow on the Go Highlighter Set (C$24) where you get a duo of Shimmering Skin Perfector® Spotlight Wand in Champagne Pop & Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed in Champagne Pop, in a travel size format. It says on the website this is an exclusive shade created in collaboration with #Jaclyn Hill. I knwo Becca is well known for their highlighters and the formula is exceptional and beyond. So good! So beautiful! If you don’t love this, I really don’t know what to say. You got to try it for yourself!

BENEFIT COSMETICS BROWVO! Conditioning Primer Nutrient Rich Eyebrow Primer Mini (C$16). This was sent to me by a pr company for review awhile ago and here I am talking about it again on my monthly favorites. Benefit comes out with many nice eye products that I’ve been liking. This is a great mid-range to drugstore option I think. The formula works very well to set the brows in place and the plastic brush wand is really cool. Can you see that? Cool right! It doesn’t have that glitter, shimmer or sheen effect that’s going to make your brow looks crispy or shine weird in a different light. If you like to splurge a little at Sephora, this is a good one.  

So that does it for this post guys and I hope you enjoyed it and found this post helpful. Let me know what you guys have been liking for the month of October? Share in the comment below.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. Hope to see you on my next blog.

  2. That is an amazing box of goodies. I definitely need the Paula’s Choice in my life. My skin is very dry like an alligator skin commercial. The skin is loose and wrinkles easily. I check your blog for gifts also for my daughter and daughter in laws.

    I always buy products from Sephora when I am out searching for gifts for my grown up nieces. I am not much of a make up user but I love walking into their stores because I know there is always a friendly sales person who will help me make the right choice.
