Best of the Best to Absolutely Ageless Skin by Aveeno

 

Hi guys! In today’s blog post I’m going to show you a tip and trick that I absolutely love. So if you read my post or follow my blog you know that I love skin care products especially my obsession to try out new products for you guys.

So today’s post is all about some new drugstore skin care products that’s fairly new to me. If you’re in the market to finding skin care products that helps no matter your age, it’s never too early or too late using anti-aging skin care products – then continue reading.

Luckily, I’ve tried loads of anti-aging skin care products and have separated the winner from the losers. Here’s the best of the best when it comes to turning back clock.

Aveeno anti aging products
#Press Samples

A huge thanks to the PR company that sent me this packaging recently. They sent me four skincare products by Aveeno and the first thing that I’ve with me here is the Absolutely Ageless Eye Cream,  Moisturizing Cleanser, Intensive Renewal Serum and last but not least is the Restorative Night Cream. Thank you so much!

I’m so excited to try these out.

aveeno cleanser

The first product I wanted to talk about is the Moisturizing Cleanser that they claims to removes 99% of skin-aging impurities.

As you can see, this product comes in a nice bottle with a pump applicator. I like that the packaging is travel friendly since it has a lock mechanism. The product is gel-like but a little too runny in my opinion. It smells wonderful and it leaves a soft feel on my skin after rinsing. The scent is totally mesmerizing!

I’ve added this to my daily skin care routine and have been very pleased with the results. This product doesn’t dry out the face and it’s very gentle for all skin types.

#aveeno renewal serum

New

This is definitely the biggest thrills of the lot. I’ve always been looking for a serum that actually works on my skin and I’m so glad it did. I applied as directed and it quickly absorbs into skin. I really appreciate that the formula feels lightweight and it’s 100% non-greasy. It has a nice scents that’s not overly powering.

“This serum is formulated with Aveeno’s Active Naturals Blackberry Complex which is full of antioxidants, vitamins and other anti-aging ingredients.” As many of you might’ve already know, I’ve combination to dry skin – this helps strengthen the natural moisture barrier is something which my dry skin department truly need help in.

I’ve been using this serum for the past two weeks and my skin is loving it so far. Whether you’re in your early twenties or late forties, I recommend giving this serum a try. This one does fit the bill.

aveeno eye cream

New

“This product gave result that other people noticed.” My fine lines reduced considerably after a week of test run. It’s one of the best anti-aging products out there if you asked me

It comes in an opaque squeeze tube packaging. What I really like about this eye cream is that it’s fragrance-free and lightweight with a silky texture to it. Works so well under makeup and the brightening effect can visibly improve the appearance of dark circles.

aveeno night cream

New

It says AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Their Natural Active ingredients of Blackberry Complex helps nourish skin by reducing the visible effect of elastin and collagen loss.

I love products that smell nice and this definitely is one of them. With my combination to dry skin, I appreciate how the formula absorbed into my skin. I’m impressed by how well this night cream hydrates. It soaks right in while leaving my skin feeling really soft and smooth. This is a keeper!

I truly enjoy using all the products from Aveeno. It’s a drugstore brand that I trust when it comes to quality and affordability.

Which one is your pick from your drugstore? Comment what’s your favorite go to skin care products?

So, thanks for stopping and read. I also like to thank Aveeno for this great opportunity to collaboration.  And until next time, I’m wishing a Great Skin Health! Bye!!!

Dollar Store Random Haul

 

Hey everyone! Thanks for joining me in this blog. Today’s post is going to be about Dollar Store Random Haul. I was in there when I visited Ottawa a couple of days ago where I excitedly picked up a few random things. Oh yeah! I’m literately the ultimate tourist.

Dollartree Haul

I noticed they’ve souvenirs for Canada 150th Birthday (which is on July 1st) and so I grabbed a few as a memento. I want to say nothing is over $5 from Dollar Store and they’re usually price around $1, $1.25, $2 and $4.

Blending Sponge

When I saw this Blending Sponge by Jolie Couture, my instinct told me to get it. I don’t really know this brand but I don’t mind trying out new brands and products especially when it costs only $2.50.

I’m very curious to try out this sponge so I let you know what I think in the hit or miss series. So don’t forget to check back later.

Sticker and after sunscreen

I was tempted to go nuts on the sunscreens, but had to remind myself of the insane amount of sunscreens I’ve that I got to finish this year and opted to just picked one. L’Oreal Sublime Sun After Sun Rich Repairing Lotion drew me to it. Made the purchase and I asked my hubby if he’ll help me to use it and was glad that he’s on board with the idea. I burnt to crisp with summer heat and this after sun repairing lotion is what need this summer.

It smells amazing and feels so lightweight. I really like the cooling sensation which is not sticky at all when I rubbed it on my body. Seriously, I’m in love! You guys have to try this.

Next is the Adventure Sticker that I’ve been loving. It would look super cool to have them on my laptop. I’m a sucker for cute things so I can’t pass on this one. I’ll show you how it looks in my snapchat and don’t forget to add me!

Tattoo and keychains

I’m such a tourist in my own country. Grabbed some souvenirs to mark Canada 150th Birthday on July 1st. The Tattoos and Key chains are super cute. I wore the tattoos last weekend and even though it rained, the tattoo was still holding on. It was a big celebration for Canada from coast to coast. Check out my instagram or snapchat where I shared some interesting posts.

Sharp alarm clock

This is a random pick by my hubby. A Digital Alarm Clock that’s only $4 by Sharp that’s a super steal. I’m going to put this in good use once our old Casio call it a day.

Air Wicks Stick ups

Last but not least are two packs of Airwicks in Lavender and Chamomile scents. These are products I love to have them in my home all the time. I need to go back to get a few more packs. They smell amazing and it makes me happy.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. If you did enjoy this post definitely follow my blog. I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Happy Canada Day, friends!

Aveeno & Neutrogena PR BOX Unboxing – My First Youtube Video EVER

 

What’s up you guys! Welcome back to my blog! This week is a very exciting week for me. I was contacted by a PR company before Mother’s Day if I want to receive samples to honor mothers from Aveeno. I immediately said yes, (a) because I’m a fan girl of Aveeno, (b) since my mom is coming to visit me in two weeks, I wanted to share these goodies with her. With Aveeno and Neutrogena, everyday is Mother’s Day!

So, last week I got these sample products in the mail for an exchange of my honest review. Part of my job as a beauty blogger is to test out as much as possible so I can share my reviews with you guys.

Aveeno Skin Products

If you are a long time reader you know that I’m a fan girl of Aveeno. I’m also a huge advocate for taking care of your skin, it’s the largest part in our body and the one everyone sees! You only get one, take care of it!

I wanted to do something really special to honor my mom this Mother’s Day beside sharing products with her. So I uploaded my very first YouTube video ever. It’s my first video and definitely not my last!

First of all let’s talk about what I got in this box unboxing. Let me show you what’s inside the current drop…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Up close picture of my favorite products side by side.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion is certainly having a moment isn’t it? It’s everywhere you look and what a revelation too; a moisturizing lotion that’s skin friendly, affordable and effective. What more could you ask for?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash. I rave about this all the time but truly it’s one of the best moisturizing body wash. It smells so amazing! It’s formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal to moisturize for 24 hours, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. They claim to provide and lock in moisture for softer, smoother more comfortable skin long after you shower. And it’s soap free and even gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love Aveeno’s Body Wash crazy lot and let me tell you this, you got to try it. Period.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know that my mom prefers a lightweight formula when it comes to body care and this AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion will be perfect for her. This hydrating, ultra sheer lotion absorbs in seconds, for a fresh, powder like feel she’ll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. I know facial wipes aren’t for everyone but I do like to stash a pack in my handbag for any make-up emergency or when travelling. Otherwise, regardless of how tired I may be, I will always opt for a “real” cleanser kinda gal. My real gripe with make-up wipes is how they leave my skin feeling after use – even if it is just one use. If ever there was a facial cleansing cloth to pack for a festival, or those just-in-case moments it’s the Neutrogena  Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. 

My mom wears makeup and since we’ll be travelling quite a bit when she’s here visiting, I know this wipes is going to be handy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented. Soap. Truly how often do you purchase soap and no I’m not talking about the anti-bacterial liquid hand soap you purchase with your weekly grocery shop, rather I’m indeed referring to the solid bars that perhaps now seem a little lost in time. It claims this bar is pure and provides a gentle cleansing for clean, clear, healthy-looking skin.

I never use soap to wash my face but I like to venture and try new things that I haven’t tried before. Frankly I’m nervous but I’m going to put this to its test and give an update in an upcoming post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® NORWEGIAN FORMULA® Fragrance Free Hand Cream. This is my favorite hand cream, it’s highly concentrated skin care formula instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. It smells nothing at all. This product is fragrance free.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I only use a small amount of products on my hands as shown below, just a little goes a long way.  You can see a noticeable difference in softness and smoothness on your hands after application. Your hands will feel very hydrated and will thank you for it. I’ve tried it and I’m convinced. What are you waiting for? GO!

So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I just can’t wait to see my mom’s reaction trying out some of the products that I’ll be sharing with her. Shout out to Aveeno for making this possible.

Which products are you most interested in? Would you pick any of these items up? What should I try out next? Love to hear your thoughts!

Walmart Beauty Haul & Review

 

Hey guys! What would you do if you’re a beauty addict! Beside shopping online, admittedly I also have a thing or two of shopping in brick and mortar stores. My doctor advises me to walk more and to go out more, so shopping is sort of my way to exercise.

My walk ended at Walmart beauty aisle and finding the satisfaction to feed my addiction of buying more makeup products. Seriously this has to stop or someone has to send me to some beauty rehabs. LOL!

unnamed

But since it’s too late for that, I might as well show you guys what I picked while I was there.

18095835_1910604525878474_1504526313644359680_n(1)

Ever since I saw this on the internet I’m obsessed with getting the new Infallible Paints Eyeshadow by L’Oreal Paris. I grabbed a few shades from their collection to share it for you guys.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But the color that spoke to me the most are Navy Yard and Sunset Fire. The pink, coral and orangy shades definitely scream spring while the navy blue could be used on the outer corner or a dramatic bold look. I’m so glad to have the chance to play with these lovely colors.

18160279_332230983860331_6449619072618332160_n(1)

L’Oreal Infallible Paint Eyeshadow is a new double-ended cream eyeshadow stick that contains two shades which can be mixed, matched, or worn individually that launched with the L’Oreal Spring 2017 Collection. It’s a cream shadow format very similar concept as the lip color/lip paint. FranklyI really like the creamy texture and the finishing.

The packaging is quite nice as it holds two shades each of which has its own sponge applicator for applicator. The shades are complimentary to each other but a little difficult to wear together at times. The creamy formula is little bit runny consistency that makes blending so easy. When it comes to pigmentation, I think they’re doing alright. The color doesn’t have the best pigmentation but it’s totally buildable for best results.

I want to conclude that the wear is fantastic and I think oily lid users will be quite happy. The color didn’t fade nor did it crease in a 8 hour period that I wore them (some days I had a shade on for 10 hours). They also remove easily which is also nice.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on, I’ve yet another product from L’Oreal and it’s the Visible Lift Blur Blush. I’ve heard of this from beauty gurus and finally jumped on the bandwagon. I’ve the shade Soft Peach which I believe is the first shade from this line. The setback is that you only have 3 color choices to pick.

I might say that it’s lightweight and almost mousse-like texture to it. On application, I feel it has those silicon-y texture close to a face primer. It’s so easy to apply and perfect for spring/summer beach vacation. A little goes a long way with this blush. Just a little squeeze is all you need to apply on your cheekbones.

As much as I like this lightweight and easy to blend blush, let me just say this blush doesn’t come entirely cheap. I paid $16.99 for this bad boy.

Okay, I promise this is the last product from L’Oreal in this haul. It’s not a new product but on contrary it’s a product that has been around for awhile and I keep collecting them till this day. I’m not doing a review on the Color Infallible Eyeshadow since I’ve done that over in my older post which I’ll put a link here.

unnamed (3)

I’ve been obsessed with Sally Hansen‘s Miracle Gel Color Coat for the past few months. So without a doubt, I went back to pick up two more shades which I really like. I got them in the shades Camo Queen and Twiggy. Speaking from my experience, Sally Hansen’s miracle gel completely ticks all the boxes for me. They’ve a huge color selection which is a plus in my book. I like that it’s quick and easy to apply and furthermore, there’s a nice thick brush that comes with it.

I was excited to try the color Twiggy the moment I got home. I shared a picture of my #NOTD on my Instagram if you like to check it out.

I don’t have a gel lamp at home but happy to say that I’ve them on my fingers for the last 5 days and still going strong without any chip. They looked absolutely gorgeous and lasted fairly well as far as nail polish with me goes! I’m usually fairly messy and not the best at painting my own nails but I found the size and thickness of the brush is perfect for covering the whole nail with minimal product getting onto my skin. For this look, I’m wore two coats and it comes out quite opaque. Loving this Miracle Gel polish, I didn’t what I was missing then.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With summer drawing near also means vacation time for us here. I’ve a few short trip planned this summer. This spring/summer-like weather made me want to run out for a fresh mani and pedi. I just love having a pretty set of freshly painted fingers and toes!

Then I saw this Nail Polish Remover Wipes by Avanti which I think will come quite handy because when it comes to removing nail polish, the process becomes considerably less fun especially when I’m on the road. I’m also a sucker for cute and unique packaging so this comes right home with me.

It holds 30 wipes and it’s acetone free whichever that means. It’s my first time trying it so I’m guessing the formula with non-acetone is less harsh on the nails but then again I could be wrong.

unnamed (1)

Last but not least is a random product I purchased by impulse. I just couldn’t resist the cute packaging and design. I justify it by finding a good home for my pills. Look how pretty the blue diamond is on this silver container. I’m obsessed with everything in silver! It’s a win-win!

What do you think of all these beauty haul? Which is your favorite? Don’t forget to comment below.

Haul This! Cruelty Free Mini Beauty Haul

 

Hey guys! Can you guess which beauty products I’m going to show you this week? I’m going to show a mini beauty haul of the products that I got for myself. It’s a good haul and worth sharing, in my opinion.

It’s a lazy afternoon as I was browsing through my email and saw news of my favorite cruelty free BH Cosmetics‘ makeup products on sale. You know how I love BH Cosmetics’s products and if you’ve been following my blog since the beginning then you probably have read some of my post reviews here in my blog.

I want you to picture this!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, it has to be BH Cosmetics cruelty free mini beauty haul. I got the following products:

  1. Face Essential 5 Piece Brush Set
  2. Glamorous Blush 10 Color Blush Palette
  3. Iluminate Cream Cheek & Lip Tint by Ashley Tisdale
  4. Neutral Eyes To Go 6 Color Eyeshadow Palette
  5. Modern Mattes To Go 6 Color Eyeshadow Palette
  6. Ultimate Lips To Go 6 Color Lipstick Palette
  7. Studio Pro Beauty  & Precision Sponge

Here are some pictures and close-ups:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Face Essential 5 Piece Brush Set. Cruelty-free synthetic brushes – Retail for $12.50 

I’ve been obsessed with these brushes. It all started with their 10 Pieces Sculpt and Blend Brush Set and I was hooked. I then went back and ordered their second version of the Sculpt and Blend set which I’ll share my review on the upcoming post. But today,I just want to talk about this 5 Piece brush set that I’m very excited to test them out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s what inside the box:

From left to right: 112-Concealer brush, 111-Foundation brush, 110-Contour brush, 109-Duo Fiber brush and 108-Powder brush 

It says here on their website: “Ideal for applying powders, creams, and liquids and depositing color in just the right amount for a perfect finish every time.”

To be honest with you, I really like the design from this collection. It’s my third sets from this collection and I’ve high expectation on this one. The bristles are very soft and doesn’t hurt the face. The brushes don’t shed or fall out whatsoever, they’re dense, have a nice handle and they look pretty luxe. They hold onto product very well and are beautiful.  Lastly, is it only me or does anyone else like brushes with numbers? I like to see brands that go an extra mile to do just that. It’s a plus in my book. Very nice face essential brush set!

For the price and quality, I would highly recommend BH cosmetics 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Glamorous Blush 10 Color Blush Palette – Cruelty Free – Retail for $9.99 

This is love at first sight!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It includes a combination of complementary matte and shimmer shades in soft nudes, pretty pinks and deep berry. Perfect shades to wear for spring and summer!

With my excitement, I did a quick swipe on my cheek with the coral shade today and I only have to apply it once, it has so much cover and pigmentation. Don’t let the intense color scares you, they’re very settle on the cheeks so it’s very buildable. All the colors are calling my name. I can’t wait to try them out and share my thoughts with you guys. So, don’t forget to stay tuned!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Iluminate Cream Cheek & Lip Tint by Ashley Tisdale – Cruelty Free – Retail for $5.99 

I got mine in the shade Cabana and they’re also available in 6 different shades from apricot to berry.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With my combination to dry skin tone, I appreciate face products that could gives me a dewy and fresh finishing look. So, after reading so many positive reviews on this product I decided to try it out myself. I love trying out makeup products as you may know by now and I’m very excited to give this a test.

Studio Pro Beauty  Sponge (lavender) & Precision Sponge (fuchsia) – Cruelty free Sponges – Retails for $4.99 each

Last products I got are these sponge blenders. I’ve a confession to make, I’m hooked with beauty blenders and not ashamed to admit it. I really want to try different sponges from different brands and sizes, if you know what I mean! I also got this on sale for $5, so you cannot go wrong for that price!!

The shape of the precision sponge reminds me of the Hersley Kiss chocolate which I find it super cool. I’m a sucker for anything cute and adorable so that’s how it all started. The sponges you see here are its actual size and not their maximum size. I really like to damp my sponges before working on application. I feel that the texture are really dense and not squishy but has bouncy texture to it, if that make any sense. It has a different feels to some of the beauty blenders I’ve tried.

It says here on the packaging, the sponge is:

  • latex free
  • hypo allergenic
  • odor free
  • reusable
  • wet or dry

Here are the 3 palettes I got for FREE. 

  • Neutral Eyes To Go 6 Color Eyeshadow Palette
  • Modern Mattes To Go 6 Color Eyeshadow Palette
  • Ultimate Lips To Go 6 Color Lipstick Palette

Yes, it’s crazy right! But that’s the truth. BH Cosmetics always has that sales, deals, promo codes and they send you coupon if you subscribed to them. When they finally arrived, I’m like yes, come to mama! I can’t say no to eyeshadow palettes and a lip palette that’s cherry on a cake. You know what, they’ve made my day! SO HAAAAAPPY!!!

Anyways, I’m going to do a road tests and report back of what I think later on my blog. Don’t forget to check back or subscribe to my blog to get notification of any upcoming posts. In the meantime, check out on my Instagram for the look I created.

What are your favorite makeup products from this mini haul? Sound off in the comments!

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. Hope this mini haul is helpful. Until next time, take care. Happy Hauling!

Sephora Favorites: Give Me Some Nude Lip – Which One Won?

 

Hey guys! What’s up this week? Today I’ve a new series coming to you and it’s the “Which One Won?” I got this inspiration after watching my favorite beauty youtuber talking about it.

If you’re new to my blog, Hello & Welcome! Come and join us and I would love it if you could click the subscribe button on the right hand side.

If you’re struggling to find the perfect NUDE shade for spring, you’re not alone. Trust me, I’ve been there and I understand how it feels like. What I did differently this time is having this Sephora Favorites set for lip. This is a great set if you want to try out a nice range of nudes! I was never able to pick out a nude for myself, but this set made it easier to see which colors would work for me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This Sephora Favorites set launched about a week ago online and because I’ve 2-day flash shipping, I already have it in my hot little hands.

As you know, nude lips are all the rage. I don’t love all nude lips, but I’ve begun to enjoy some mauve/pink nudes a lot. My trick is to basically tried out all these favorite nudes that best compliment my lip color. Continue reading if you care to know which nude ones win?

I’m excited to get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The set contains five lipsticks and a lip pencil and comes in a cute pink lip shaped box. It retails for $28 USD/$33 CND. So, you get two full sized products plus three deluxe sized items isn’t a bad deal. Now it just depends on if those full sizes make the set worth it, right!

In this set, you’ll get the following:

Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb (beige nude)
Buxom® Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian (nude)
Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff (satin nude)
Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn (creamy nude rose)
Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B (matte soft mauve)
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte (medium brown)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This set is from Sephora’s Spring Collection 2017.

So, I think I’ll start with something that I’ve been wearing and loving.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This item is quite a treat for someone like me who will probably never pay for a full size Marc Jacobs. I’ve the same mini in the shade Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and totally love the formula and the lovely shade.

This one is the Marc Jacob’s Le Marc Lip Crème in Slow Burn. Look how cute and luxe the packaging is! I really love this nude shade very much. I would say the shade and consistency to be of creamy nude rose. I like that it gives my lips that my lips but better kinda look. I know I’m going to have a good wear of it. It’s definitely not going last long but I will enjoy it till it runs out.

Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Really, could Too Faced have found a longer name for this lipstick? This is a 0.08 oz/ 2.3 ml in Queen B which is a soft mauve matte. The consistency of lip cream is great on this one. Not overly drying and it glides like a dream. It feels comfortable on lips and no tacky feeling on it.

Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next one is called Honeycomb which is described as a nude beige. Honestly, this is my first love with Bite lipsticks.  I’ve always wanted to try this brand and glad that I did. They’re comfortable to wear and the color payoff is very good. It makes me look a little washout with this nude.

Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This lip liner is one of their full size lip product from this box. It’s in the shade In the Buff which is of a satin nude. I find that this shade works really well with all the other shades in the box.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The second full size product is this beautiful medium brown nudes, but this brown is rubbing me the wrong way. It’s giving me a dark brown vibe, but it could be different on the lips or skin toned.

Buxom® Full-On Lip Cream

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shade I got here is White Russian. I would say this is shade  can simply described as nude. It has a pleasant cooling and minty type of tingle on lips but doesn’t sting. This is the palest of all the shades in the box.

I love the color selections in this set. They’re all nude, but different nudes – pinky, brown, mauve… they’re all amazing! Note that, a  full size Urban Decay lipstick retails for ($21 CAD) and Estee Edit liner ($24 CAD), both of which are in full size.

nude-lips-swatches

I’ve voted and Marc Jacob Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème is the winner! I’ve light to medium skin-tone and this shade suit my lips perfectly. Finally, I’ve found my perfect suitor!

This set is definitely a bang for your buck. If you’re on the fence to pick the products, this set is a great way to try a lot about without breaking your wallet.I think their favorites sets are always a great value and this one is no different.

Let me ask you this, if you’ve the chance to try out different brands and colors for a super price – would you take it? My answer is obvious, I’d take it anytime.

Overall, I ‘m happy that I decided to pick this up! Love the great value and good quality brands. They’re perfect, I couldn’t ask for me. This is a limited edition set, so if you’re in the market for a nude lipsticks then I recommend you put your order in now. It’s retailed for $33 CND ($103 value) on Sephora’s website.

What are your favorite lipstick brands? Sound off in the comments!

Hey guys! What’s up you guys! Yes, I’ve started beauty shopping again after a while of winter hibernation. So, my first stop is at Walmart. I picked up a few interesting beauty products that I’m very excited to show you guys.

I don’t want this blog to be too long so let’s get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Wet n Wild Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette

When I first saw it at Emily Noel‘s youtube channel, I’ve been eyeing this since then. As this is Walmart’s exclusive line, I’m all over the moon when I saw it at Walmart. I grabbed these two lovely shades in Nude Awakening and Bare Necessities. Both have amazing color selections with one palette more matte and pinkish than the other.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Elf Blending Sponge 

If you’ve been following my blog you know that I’m a sucker for anything cute, so this is something that caught my eyes on the ELF‘s counter. I love a good blending sponge and I’m pretty excited to try out how this one fairs.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Maybelline Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation

I picked up this Maybelline Cushion foundation in the shade 20. I’m light to medium so, I’ll be trying out to do a color match and test on the formula. I’ve shared a photo of this cushion foundation on my Instagram when it first landed at my local drugstore. I wasn’t too sure if I need another cushion foundation since I still have and love my old favorite, the Physician formula ones. But last week, I decided to pick it up anyways since I feel like spendy and also to do a product review for you guys.

So, ya here it is.

As much as I love my cushion foundation by Physician Formula I thought it would be good to give this product a try. I’ve tried many of Maybelline‘s foundation before and I will have to say I liked them all and so I’ve high expectation on this one. Hope it won’t disappoint.

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation + Concealer 

The next product I got is also a foundation. Something is definitely wrong with me. It could be the weather, I don’t know. But as if one foundation is not enough, I picked another and this time it’s by Milani. This one I’ve justification since I’ve been wanting it the moment I saw it floating around the internet. So, when I saw  it at my Walmart, I’m like just take my money. I’m sold!

I got the shade in Medium Beige and I’m very excited to test out the color match and the performance of this foundation + concealer. You guys know that I’m not a very big fan of high coverage foundation because I prefer a natural look with BB Cream but I heard so many people raved about it and so I got to try it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Milani Powder Blush

And I also picked up something that I’ve been longing to try from Milani since it was first launched. My Walmart doesn’t carry a huge collection of Milani’s makeup products and when I saw this available last week. I grabbed not only one but two of these cute blushes. And yes, it’s their Tea Rose Powder Blush and I also have the shade in Romantic Rose since they’re both so insanely pretty.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Purederm Deep Cleansing Peel-Off Mask (Cucumber)

When I saw this peeling mask, I told myself that I need it.I like the feeling of peeling dry glue when I was a kid and this brings me back to childhood time. There are 5 masks for $7.97 at Walmart. You can also find it on Amazon and Ebay. This product is made in Korea and it’s cruelty free.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sally Hansen Color Therapy in Sheer Nirvana

Honestly, this is the most expensive nail polish I ever own from a drugstore brand. I saw Amelia Liana talking about the Gel Miracle polish in their Rustic Charm collection. But I decided to pick this Color Therapy line because I just adore this shade so much. I did a color swatch and #NOTD (on my instagram) if you care to check them out. The shade is so girly and pretty. Love, love it! Sheer Nirvana is such a summery color and I really don’t care what season to wear it. I can see myself wearing this over and over!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L’Oreal Doutzen Collection Exclusive in Douzten’s Nude

The last time I checked on the weather, I heard spring will come early this year. I’ve been seeing a lot of new spring color launched on the nails department that I makes me to check them out. Among other shades, this one calls out to me the most. I tried it at the counter and this is definitely my go to spring color nails. I really like this color. It’s a nice mauvy-nude that will be perfect for the season and also for office wear. If you want to see the color swatch, don’t forget to follow me on my instagram for updates.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L’Oreal Evercreame Sulfate-Free Intense Nourishing Shampoo

Last but not least, I’ve a hair product from L’oreal Hair Expertise and it’s their Evercreame Sulfate-Free Intense Nourishing Shampoo.

This shampoo smells amazing and the price is not too bad for a 8.5 fl oz products. I can smell the lovely fresh scents of camelina flower and it’s 100% vegan. It says here that it’s for dry to very dry hair. Well,  I don’t have a very dry hair now but I do have a thick hair. So, I’ll try this and will keep you guys updated if I like it.

So, that’s about it on my Walmart beauty haul this round and I’ll keep you posted on my new series of “Which one won?”. Don’t forget to stay tuned!

Let me know which product you like me do a review on first in the comment. I like to hear what you say.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope to see you again on the next one. Bye for now!

Colourpop Beauty Splurge – Photos & Swatches

 

Hey guys! I’ve been collecting makeup left and right in preparation for the biggest holiday of the year. When I saw their kit-LoveAFlare,  I placed a sneaky order with ColourPop! Here’s what I got in my mail weeks ago …sorry to put this post up late, I haven’t been feeling so good of late.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is strictly just swatches and color descriptions as I just feel better yesterday to do an unboxing of this package from Colour Pop and haven’t tried out any of these products yet.

I got to admit that I’ve really fallen in love with this brand and my collection of their products is growing rapidly. Their prices are amazing and the quality of their products is outstanding! I’m hooked!

Ultra Matte Lip in Knotty

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Knotty is a light warm taupe color tone which I really like for everyday wear. It’s not too over the lips kinda shade. This is definitely more of an everyday out color for me which I know I’ll wear and make it out the door with this. It’s just a lovely color.

Creme Gel Liner in Swerve 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I picked up this gel liner because I always love to try new liners from brands. This shade is a true onyx black and the formula feels super creamy. This is a nice black liner if you’re in the market for a pretty black liner or smoke it out.

Creme Gel Pot in Swerve

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also ordered the creme gel pot that costs only $6.00 and I’m eager to try it out. Excited I must say. This is my first order of their gel liner and I totally love the formula. I’ll definitely be doing a detailed review once I’ve tried it long enough.

Brow Colour in Bangin’ Brunette

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This shade is in true brunette brown. A lovely brown that looks so amazing on swatch. I’ve tried a few drugstore gel brows before and I got to say this is my first time trying out from this brand. I’ll do a separate post review on this product as well.

It comes in a cute glass jar which I absolutely adore.

Super Shock Cheek Flexitarion 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love this shade and ordered it the moment I saw it. This comes in an intense white champagne tone in pearlized finish.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Honestly I don’t see what’s not to like on this highlighter. So, I’ll pull a closer look swatch for you guys to see for yourself.

Another product which I couldn’t resist trying after I did an unboxing. It’s really lovely, and would make such a nice stocking stuffers.

Love A Flare 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Do I need more eyeshadows in my life? No! Do I want more? YES! This is my second order of their eyeshadow kit after my not too long ago purchase of their Foursome Zingara. Can you tell I’m obsessed with eyeshadows now?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These shades are gorgeous for winter months. You got four matte shadows with a shimmery and a metallic. The super shock shadows were something I see myself reaching for.

Here’s what inside this kit:

  • I Spy: Matte finish soft yellow peach
  • Melrose: Matte finish true rust 
  • Moonwalk: Pearlized finish yellow gold with a rust orange undertone and green duo chrome flip
  • By My Side: Pearlized finish duo chrome yellow peach with a pink flip 
  • High Rise: Matte finish deep olive
  • Head Rush: Matte finish khaki olive

Color Swatches OMG!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
One swipe shadow on bare hand (without primer)

The pigmentation really impresses me. These eyeshadows are a creme to powder finish and it does not budge.

I think it’s safe to say I’m addicted to their Super Shock line. The formula of every finish is to die for and they’re only $5!! Such an amazing price. Don’t you think!

Here’s a quick guide in case you’re curious or not to be overwhelm by all their incredibly awesome products.

Products and Prices:
Ultra Matte Lip- $6 (Over 35 Shades)
Lippie Stix- $5 (Over 50 Shades)
Lippie Pencils- $5 (Over 50 Shades)
Blush/ Highlighers/ Bronzers- $8 (Over 40 Shades)
Eyeshadows- $5 (Over 70 Shades)

I’ll have more in-depth reviews of these up in the near future. I loved everything I got and I can’t wait to try them out more.

That’s all I got from Colourpop this time. I fully intend on making a larger order soon with more exciting winter/spring shades! Heads up for more hauls in the coming blog.

Aveeno Huge Beauty Haul

 

Hi guys!

If you regularly read my content, you know by now I spend an extraordinary amount of time bathing. I may not wash my hair every single day but you better believe when I tell you that I’m going to spend some time in  my shower or bath. It’s how I unwind basically!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*Press Samples

On the days that have been slightly on the rough side, I’ve been reaching for a comforting body wash that is creamy, warming, and enveloping—like a hug from my honey bear.

So today, I’ve rounded up the best Beauty Haul by Aveeno that will hold up throughout your Thanksgiving feast. Yes, I’m talking about beauty skin products which was sent to me by Aveeno for considerations. As you may know, Aveeno is a personal favorite brand of mine and I’m pretty excited to try these products and more than excited to share them here.

So let’s get started.

Here are the latest in Aveeno huge beauty haul: Enjoy!

  1. Pure Renewal Shampoo
  2. Pure Renewal Conditioner
  3. Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion
  4. Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion
  5. Stress Relief Body Wash
  6. Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Bath
  7. Moisturizing Bar
  8. Neutrogena Men Invigorating Face Wash
  9. Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne
  10. Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Spot Gel
  11. Neutrogena All in One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first thing I want to talk about is their Calming & Comfort Lotion in lavender and vanilla scents.

This lotion is designed to help calm babies and I would definitely wanted to use it for my little one before bedtime. Sleep is important but a good night sleep for me is everything. I’m sure a lot of mommy out there could agree!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are all amazing products for anytime of the year and especially for those who have going to spend your hours prepping and cooking for Thanksgiving. The stress relief foaming bath and moisturizing lotion are something to help unwind and relax after the long day. One thing I can tell you is that they definitely have everyone in mind when they sent me products for baby and men in the family.

Aveeno Stress Relief Foaming Bath in lavender, charmomile and ylang-ylang oils. With thanksgiving and the big holiday approaching fast, I got stressed up just by thinking of the holiday. Shopping lists and Christmas preparation could be overwhelming sometimes.

Luckily, I’ve some stress relief to help me through the holidays. I can’t wait to get into the tub for a nice and relaxing bath.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know that this product will made it’s way into my daily routine since Christmas holiday is usually hectic and I can imagine myself using this a lot to unwind. It says on the bottle that it hydrates for 24 hours and I’m intrigued to put this to the test. Let me know if you would like me do a post review on the comment section.

Another plus is that since we’re not spared from colder winter – lots and lots of moisturizer is necessary! Your skin is going to thank you later for it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m a huge fan of body wash. I went through body wash very quickly. I’m very excited to try this stress relief body wash and see if it really works. I’ll report back for update in my next post. Don’t forget to stay tuned!

The body wash is formulated with lavender and chamomile which from what I heard is that lavender has the aromatherapy properties to help on stress relief.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on is the Aveeno Baby Calming and Comfort Bath. I love the scents of lavender and vanilla. It’s so refreshing and soothing without going overboard. I’ll have my little boy try this bath product. He loves a good bath even in autumn and gets to play with the bubbles. I know that he is going to like it but I want to see his reaction to this product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This might be TMI but in case you don’t know, I wash my hair every 2 other days. I haven’t tried any hair products from this brand, so yes I’m quite excited with the prospect. I’m happy to see that their Pure Renewal shampoo and conditioner are made for all hair types. That’s cool!

Let’s talk packaging. I really like the long green cylinder tube. It makes storing so much easier and convenient. It’s not too bulky or heavy. A good amount of products with amazing scents to it. They’re in full size samples and honestly, I was really blown away.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know that I’ll be busy testing out most of the products by myself and will have my hubby try the product for men. I’ll do a separate product review once I’ve tried them. These are all products that I know I’ll be reaching out for when the holiday gets closer.

Next on the list is an interesting product which I’m dying to have my hubby try is this Invigorating Face Wash. He is not very interested in this department but I’m going to convince him to try it out anyways. I’m excited to hear what his thoughts are which then I’ll update right back once I got his feedback.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Makeup Removing Face wipes are one of the most important beauty must-haves for festivals and a little pocket-sized pack like this is perfect for travelling too. You get 25 wipes which is a good quality and talk about product that actually work. Well, this I could confirm it works because I’ve tried and love it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next is the Moisturizing Bar for Dry Skin. It contains natural colloidal oatmeal that combat dry and itchy skin. This soap would be great to use for winter season. I don’t usually use soap on my body but for you guys, I’m going to try it and let you know what I think next.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least, I want to show you Neutrogena Daily Leave on Mask and Spot Gel for Stubborn Acne. I’ve been lucky to have some good skin days in the summer but with the weather turning colder, my skin tends to be acting up. I’ll definitely be wearing this once I spotted a bad skin day.

These are a couple of drugstore gems that you got to check them out. They’re a prefect addition for my winter skin, hair and facial routine. All the products mentioned, you could find them at any drugstores, Walmart, Target US, CVS and on Aveeno’s website.

What do you think guys? Will you be checking these out soon? Comment below your reply. I love to read your comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you all again on my next post. Bye!

Walmart Beauty Haul – #Octoberhaul

Hey everybody! How’s it going? Yes, it’s the second week of October and I was in the mood to do another beauty haul this month. I got good response from the last Walmart Beauty Haul Under $5 that I decided it was time to switch things up and try something new like doing more beauty hauls posts. I’m going to it my #Octoberhaul blog.

So, ya let’s start.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So yes, I’ve been shopping at Walmart quite a bit since they started carrying E.L.F cosmetics beauty products. They got almost everything there from grocery to fashion, toys, home decor to beauty under one roof. It’s kind of a perfect destination to spend on a Saturday afternoon, really!  I know I could go on and on but you’re here to see beauty haul and let’s jump in.

I got a few products that I’m excited to try and some are my repeat buys. I like them and would repurchase whenever the urge of my makeup addiction sparks. Who else does this?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First thing I wanted to talk about is the most loveable lip cream by Hard Candy ever. If you’ve been following my blog, you might’ve seen the review post which I’ll link it here. I’m in love with this Velvet Mousse lip cream. The texture is so soft and it goes on smoothly. I particularly love how velvety it makes my lips look. Love the high pigmentation and I kid you not, they’re long lasting.

This is in the shade Daffodils and I did I mentioned that I love a good matte lip cream? You just pop it on your lips and you’re good to go. It feels lightweight and comfortable on lips. I didn’t notice any feeling of the stickiness or gunky feeling at all. This is the third shades I’ve picked up so far. We’re in the fall season now and I’m excited to expand my horizon to the darker side of the spectrum.

This brown toned velvet mousse is my favorite color to wear especially this time of the year. They’re so cute and I feel like I could wear it the whole fall. The packaging is cute and the doe foot applicator amazeball. I love this thing! Uhhhh!!!  Can’t get enough of this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another product I want to share here is the Flower Beauty Eyes on the Prize Eyeshadow Chubby in the shade Olive My Love. It was on liquidation for $2.50 and if you see this at your local Walmart in Canada, I recommend this if you like Eyeshadow Chubby pencils a lot go get them before they’re all gone.

I’m afraid this was the last makeup product left from Flower Beauty at my local Walmart. Almost all had been picked up and they’re all gone.

Anyways, in case you don’t know me, I’m a person who loves collecting unique packaging and limited edition beauty products. I know you might not care but just to put it put there in case you want to know.

So, when I saw this chubby pencil I thought, I want to keep this as a momento and also to do a review after I’ve tried it. I was too excited to do a color swatch which I did, and I’ve shared it on my Instagram.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been loving a lot more of E.L.F.products recently with a simple reason that it’s so much convenient now for me to get them at Walmart. I used to order them online but now everything is within reach. So yay!

I picked this new Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in the shade St Luca. The blush looks like a shimmery coral peachy color while the bronzer is of brownish brown tone. The packaging looks sleek and sturdy and it comes with a decent size mirror which I like.  For the low prices I’m not complaining at all but I’m curious to try out how it works on me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next product I got is another Hard Candy makeup. Do you know that this brand is cruelty free, and same goes to Flower Beauty and E.L.F. makeup products? All the products mentioned are not tested on animals except L’oreal’s brand.

I did a review post a while ago on the same 10 Eyeshadow Palette in Birthday Suits. I really enjoyed the shades and quality. So, when I saw this palette with silver brocade embroidery, I need this in my life. Silver is my favorite if you’ve been following me on my blog. So, yes, I’m excited with this Rich & Famous color eyeshadow. I can’t wait to get my paws on them!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on is the L’oreal La Palette Noir Eyeshadow Palette and it’s for CAD$23.96 at Walmart.

This is not a new product by L’oreal but definitely it’s new to me nevertheless. Available in three other shades I decided to pick this La Palette Noir to greet this fall season. I wanted to create a darker shades smokey eye look this Halloween. I’m intrigued to test this one since I’ve heard some mixed reviews on it.

I personally don’t really care much of the packaging but I’ll be more interested on the texture and formula. For this price, the stake is high. I’m putting a lot of expectation  on this product and I honestly hope it wouldn’t disappoint me. Finger crossed!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another cruelty free product I got from Elf Cosmetics is their new Perfect Blend Concealer. I happened to pick up the shade in Light Beige. I’ve heard so many good things about this concealer that I was swayed to get it. Yes, I know, I’m such a #beautycholic! What can I say!

I’ve been obsessed with dark circle concealer so this is what it looks like. So, I’m very excite to try this. I love the shade and packaging. It’s a small size and easy to throw in my purse. I can’t wait to use it more.

So ya, I’ll report back on this one for sure. Don’t forget to stay tuned!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next I also picked up the ELF Lengthening & Defining Mascara. I’m always excited to try out ELF makeup products. I’ve tried their liquid eyeliner and I really love it and ya, this time around the star is mascara.  Let’s give it a try. It’s black and oohh… I like how sutler this is.  I didn’t know if I like it at first but I really like it though.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a close up photo of the brush applicator.

Ya, first impression is that I like it. WOOHOO!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I appreciate a good eyebrow brush and I’m happy to find one on ELF’s counter. At the moment, not tons to say about this brush I want to see how it works on my brows first.

So, that’s it for today’s Walmart haul. I really love doing haul if you guys know me. I get so excited with makeup and sometimes on fashion. Let me know if you like reading this type of post.

Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you again on the next post. Bye!

Promo Monday -Walmart Beauty Haul Products under $5

 

Hey guys! I’ve so many beauty products I want to show you today. It’s no joke! When I heard that Flower Beauty would be taken off Walmart Canada‘s shelf a month ago, I was pretty sad. Flower Beauty was a good quality brand. I really like their eyeshadows and brushes. For those of you who haven’t heard of Flower Beauty, their product is available at Walmart and it’s by Drew Barrymore‘s cruelty free brand.

So, long story short. I was back to Walmart shopping when I saw this. It’s a mixed feeling of bitter sweet happening. I was sad to see Flower Beauty go but other the other hand, was happy to see E.L.F. Cosmetics products now available at Walmart

And when I saw Flower Beauty makeup products were on liquidation, I could feel that I was on cloud nine. Seriously! Out of all the excitement, I picked up some of the products that I was dying to try.

Before I start, I want to tell you that this is going to be a long post – so, you might want to grab some chips and tea. So, let’s start.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can’t believe that we’re actually in the fall. Could you? It’s already mid September and where are all the time go. Are you joking? By anyways, I’m so excited, I love fall so much. It’s chilly at night and it’s so nice.

Okay, I’ve so much to write about. So let’s start.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Okay you guys, first thing I got is their lipsticks. Ta…da!!! I actually have six tubes but one didn’t make it to this group photo. But I’ll do a review on all six shades once I’ve tried them all. I’m very excited for the fall colors of berry, wine and burgundy and the fact that this brand is cruelty free.

It’s the Kiss Stick Luxury Velvet Lip Color (white tubes) and Luxury High-Shine (black tubes) Lip Color on the right. I got three of each from both the formulas.

The shades for Velvet lip color are :- Petal Kiss, Rosey Garden and Get to the Poinsettia while the High Shine lip color I got is as follows – Cactus Flower, Tulips 2 Kiss You and Berry Bloom. Which shade would you  like me try first? Leave comment below. 

If you’ve followed me on Instagram, you probably know what’s coming (yasss color swatches). Don’t forget to stay tuned for the upcoming review.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next item I got are the Lip Gloss. I’ve them in the shades Baby’s Breath and Stop the Violets. I adore the white and rose gold case – so unique and feminine! I think they’ve the cutest packaging ever! The colors are so beautiful, I can’t wait to try it. It’s a soft pale pink and plum shade. And they’re super inexpensive.

I would love to grab more shades but these are what’s left on the shelf. I know that my sister would love it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the first time I’d be trying out the BB Cream. The shade I got is in BB2 and it looks like  perfect shade for my skin toned. It comes in a squeeze tube packaging and the formula is creamy but not thick consistency, which is a plus for me. I prefer BB Cream that gives a sheer to medium finishing look but still hide the redness and imperfections.

It would be interesting to see how this wears. I’ll certainly keep you on the loop for it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next thing I got is the Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara in Brown Black. It comes in this fancy packaging and well, I’m a sucker for cute stuff – what can I say!

I was dang surprised with the packaging of this mascara.There’s this twist 3-in-1 applicator that works to lengthen, curl and thicken your lashes. I think this is a cool applicator that comes with not two but three functions. You could adjust the brush to however way you want your lashes to look. That’s ridiculously cool!

How it apply I don’t know yet but it will tell the tale?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also got the Raise Some Brows in Light Brown. It’s a twist applicator that I really really love. This shade looks great on my brows and I’m happy camper. I tried it yesterday and I’ve been loving it since. This would probably be my first review post from this haul.

Next product I got here is the On Your Mark Liquid Eyeliner in Black. You know if you’re following me on my blog that I’m always on a hunt for a good liquid eyeliner. Don’t get me wrong, I like gel liner but I find liquid liner works much better for me, at least. well, I was so excited when I saw this and picked up two of the same shade.

I did a swatch but don’t really like it that much. I find the formula not pigmented enough and lack intensity. It looks gray and very light when I tried it on my hand. I posted a picture on my Instagram if you want to have a sneak peek for what comes next on my review.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m obsessed with eyeshadows and especially the palettes. Since Walmart has only the quads available, I grabbed two of these.

I really like most of the eyeshadows by Flower Beauty I had before and have been loving it. The formulation of the shadows are nicely pigmented and very smooth. These are pretty quads and did I mentioned that they’re mattes. I see these shadow quads perfect for the summer into fall transition quads. I going to try doing a smokey eye look with them and upload it on my Instagram. Review post would be up shortly after I’ve played enough. So, stay tuned!

I can’t wait to try my new quads in Smoke and Mirrors (on the right) and Twilight Moon, the quad on the left.

14134844_1128082200607557_373703019_n1

Now let’s move on to nail polishes. Yay! Super excited with the colors I picked up. They’re Pansy Shmansy, Budding Romance, Aster Place, Blue Bell of the Ball and  Made My Day.

If you follow my Instagram, you may have seen these nail polishes I posted on my Instagram. Since it’s fall, the first shade that crosses my mind is to pick the nail color that would goes well with the season. So, I got burgundy, purple, maroon and two random pastel shade nails. I’m so excited to paint all my nails in fall shades.

I hope this post helps anyone who is a fan of Flower Beauty. Click heart or comment if you like this Walmart Beauty Haul Products under $5. Until next time, have a nice day!

If you guys happened to see more of Flower Beauty liquidation products at your local your Walmart, tweet me. I’m obsessed and I couldn’t get enough of their products!

Forever 21 Makeup & Fashion Haul

 

Like most weekends, this one went way too fast. It seems like we’re always on the go, go, go.

Today’s post is a little different than my usual beauty post. I’m throwing in some new content and hope you’d like it. I’m going to talk about some makeup and fashion haul which I ordered online from the Forever 21 website a few weeks ago.

Is that me or anybody else, that you feel every season calls for a shift in makeup, a small change that can make a big impact! In the summer, I tend to wear less makeup and need a little more in the cooler months. Leave in the comment your favorite fall colors.

Honestly, I’ve a thing with eyeshadow palettes and if you’ve been following me, you know that I’m freaking obsessed with them. I’ve to admit that I tend to gravitate to them the most.

Ok! Forever 21 Eye & Cheek Palette have my attention for $10.90.

Count me curious!

So, I got this in the shade Natural/Multi Unique. They’re four quads with a blush in the palette.I really like the pretty color selections and so fall like shades as we transition from summer to fall. I haven’t tried them yet but I’m very excited to try.

I’m going to play with all these colors awesome shades and will shade a full detail review on the next one. I’m going to name my EOTD to #eyesforfall.

Volumizing Mascara with Eyelash Enhancing Serum in Black. I always love a good mascara thaat doesn’t clumpy, smudge and flake, don’t you. I REALLY LIKE the tip of the brush applicator. You can go deep unto eyelashes when applying for best results. I’ve it today and I’m happy how it turns out. But more testing before I conclude my opinion on this product.

Floral Cosmetic Brush Set in Black/Multi. I ordered this because of the cute packaging of floral on these brushes. First time testing them out and I’ll sure to report back in my review post. They’re synthetic brush which I prefer more than natural hair brushes. I believe this is a special edition but couldn’t be sure. Let me know if you’ve these brushes and comment if these are permanent feature.

Argan Oil Eyeshadow Set in Brown/Natural. The texture is slightly rough to touch but the pigmentation is insanely amazing. I can’t get enough eyeshadow palette as you my know by now if you’ve been following m blog, I’m obsessed with palettes.

This palette looks promising and I’LL DEFINITELY be anxious to try it. It has a good color selection of neutral which I REALLY like.

Fashion Haul

I’ve been trying really hard to take pics of what I’m wearing lately, not that it’s amazing, but I love seeing what other women wear and how they style and restyle their wardrobes and pieces.

So here’s some of the style I came out with.

This cardigan is so soft and it’s the one from my Forever 21 haul.  It’s definitely too casual for work, but I’m glad I kept it for weekend. This jean is also soft and very comfortable. I actually got it from Zara. So happy that they got my size (smiley face emoji). I really like them and think they fit true to size, I want to get the black color as well.

Most of the clothing I got is for fall and I can see myself wearing the cardigan and skinny jeans non-stop.

Classic V-Neck Cardigan in Heather Grey and Super Skinny Jeans from Zara. Very casual and I just love this simple design. We went out to a friend’s party and it was the perfect event for this outfit, since it has started to quickly cool down at nights in September!

Ribbed Knitted Skater Dress in Navy. Love the cut of this skater dress. I could see myself pairing it with a black legging and knee high boots. Super sexy!

Quilted Asymmetrical Dress in White. It’s hard for me to find open shoulder dress that fit my broad chest. And I’m super pleased that this one fits nicely. It’s a little fancy dress I wore for an evening couple date with my hunny bear a few weeks ago. Conclusion, I’m so happy that I got this dress. I love it! I really do 🙂 Can you tell?

So, that’s what I’ve been wearing during my leave while we’re out. Once we get home, I like to change into my comfy sweatpants and a tee to chill out.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy Monday everyone, and have a great week! 🙂
