The Cr√®me de la Cr√®me of Beauty|The Cr√®me Shop

 

Ever since I discovered Korean cosmetics and especially I realised the importance of having a regular skincare routine, every morning and every evening I perform something like a beauty ritual which I truly enjoy. While I was looking for inspiration, I stumbled upon this¬†Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask¬†at Marshall’s. I’m very much into face mask lately so I bought it in a heart beat and was pleased I did.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You’ve been following my blog you ‘ll know that I’m an avid advocate of moisturizing, thus a lot of the skincare I use or mention can be used irrespect of young or mature skin. But today I’m just going to talk about one product and it’s the Overnight Gel Mask.

Let’s jump right in:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a fairly large jar for C$9.99 worth. Though it’s called a gel mask but it looks more like a jar of jelly actually. If you poke it, it wobbles and return to its original shape like before.

The Creme Shop in a jar

The smell of the rose oil is really amazing and it’s not overpowering at all.¬†I like how it smells and the rose petals in the mask.¬†It’s great in helping skin calm down and depuff. I like the finishing touch of putting on my gel mask as the last step in my routine and allow it to work overnight without the need to rinse. You wake up the next morning with a hydrated and noticeably brighter skin that you’re skin will be grateful for.

Depuffing & anti-inflamatory gel mask

I’ve been using this mask for the past 2 weeks and I can tell you this stuff really works on my uneven skin. Anti-inflammatory helps reduces spots on certain area of my face which is quite impressive but in terms of depuffing I didn’t see much of a difference except some improvement on my under eyes feels cool and visibly look brighter. This product dries up quickly so you don’t have to worry it comes off your cheek onto your pillow.

Ingredients: Water, Dipropylene Glycol, PEG-240/HDI Copolymer Bis-Decyltetradeceth-20 Ether, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycereth-26, Caprylyl Glycol, Allantoin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Adenosine, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Fragrance, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hyaluronate, CI 16185.

Texture gel mask

This cream really impressed me to no end. It’s ridiciously amazing!

The best thing about this product is that it works! And so I urge you to go and get it today! The Créme Shop is a reliable brand and they believe that products should never be tested on animals. I love this brand and plan on buying more products

If you’ve any Korean skincare products that you like me to try, pleases share them in the comments.

Best of Neutrogena

 

There’s no denyig that I love the brand by Neutrogena. I’ve been obsessed with the foundation that was sent to me by the PR company a few weeks ago. A big thank you to Neutrogena and especially to Laura for this amazing product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
#Press samples

Let’s start with my favorite Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint which all I’ve been wearing since I got them. I want to share with you guys my thoughts¬†on this hydrating tint foundation because it’s a new release from Neutrogena just recently.

The first time they sent to me this foundation, it was in Natural Ivory shade which was too light for my skin tone. Later, I received two other shades which are a good match for my skin type.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Natural Beige (60)

I really like this shade in Natural Beige. It’s a perfect match for my NC25 skin toned. I use my Elf beauty sponge to apply the foundation everytime and the finishing is flawless. It’s my most preferred method of application.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Soft Beige (50)

It comes in this very nice packaging. I love the packaging, it’s slim, it’s light and I think it’s plastic though it looks like glass, and it’s very heavy duty. It won’t break even if you drop it. So that’s cool!

Soft Beige can be a tad light and pink for me.¬† I would get lighter color coming up winter as the weather gets colder for some reason. So this would be perfect for me. I love this foundation, I’m just going to say I love it. It’s so unique and the formula is so different that it feels so lightweight and comfortable to wear on skin. It does reminds me of Make Up For Ever Water Blend foundation formula somehow but this one is a fraction of the price.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Natural Ivory (20)

I gave the Natural Ivory bottle to my daughter since she has lighter skin than me and she really likes it. She’s not a big fan of full coverage, full makeup girl so this she enjoys a lot.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s not a pump but a different type of applicator. It got a big doe foot applicator while I’ve never used a foundation like this before. It’s super easy application. You just throw it on your face. There’s no mess with finger application or brush.

The reason I love this foundation is because I do feel that at the end of the day, it doesn’t dries up my skin completely. This product does literally moisturize and plumps your skin and makes it feel so smooth and natural as if you just applied it. It’s very nice coverage and it does feel great on my dry skin.

Hydrating tint swatches

Here are the color swatches. From left to right: Natural Beige, Soft Beige and Natural Ivory. It claims to have hyaluronic acid in it and moisturizes and plumps skin for 24 hours and I agree with their claims.

Neutrogena tinted foundation

The coverage is light to medium. I highly recommend it. It is better than many highend foundations that give light to medium coverage. This one is a keeper and the best thing is that it’s from the drugstores.

Have you tried this Neutrogena product I’ve mentioned in this post? Share it in the comment below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. I’ll see you again on my next blog. Until then bye!

Holiday 2017: Sephora Favorites Superstars – Review, Photos & Swatches

 

Hey everybody! Thank you so much for stopping by for my first holiday review as it’s¬† the most exciting time like all the past years when all the new collections starts busting out. So I thought it would be fun to point out some of these products that I got in this¬†Sephora Favorites¬†box. There are a few new favorites at Sephora website but this one caught my eyes the most.

Sephora Favorites Superstars

The actual value for this box is $268 but it was retailed for only C$90 on Sephora’s website. It’s not the cheapest box out there but just look at all the high-end products that comes with it. If you’re a makeup lover or makeup collector like me, and the thought of buying a full size quantity product is an issue for you and you well think that you’ll never use that or it’s going to take me a long time to finish that up.¬†I’d prefer to have that.

This set contains: All the high-end goodies:

Unboxing Sephora Favorites

  • 0.1 oz Benefit Hoola Bronzer
  • 0.19 oz Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Setting Powder
  • 0.035 oz Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder
  • 0.5 oz Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
  • 1 oz Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • 0.003 oz Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown
  • Beautyblender¬ģ The Original beautyblender¬ģ
  • 0.01 oz Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer

  • 0.08 oz Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Sell Out
  • 0.08 oz Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch in 2 Luminious Ivory

I love Sephora Favorites because they picked the best products out and for me this is my chance to try out some high-end samplings before committing to the full size, if you know what I mean.

So again I’m going to try all these things on and reviewing them for you.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit is like a tried and true that every beauty gurus that I’ve known just has. All swear by it and I agree to their claims. The formula is nice and very smooth. It’s a universal shade that speaks to all skin types. No wonder it’s #1 best selling Prestige Bronzer in the US.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

It’s got that silicon feel that’s neither thick nor tacky. It’s just a great consistency and it went on so smoothly. This Photo Finish Foundation Primer by Smashbox is as good as it sounds and I’m excited to get it in a deluxe size. By the way, I did mentioned this in earlier post so you might want to check it out here.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Loose Powder

I’ve always wanted to try out more of the Make Up For Ever makeup and was thrilled to find it in this Sephora’s favorites. So thank you Sephora for including this in the favorites. I can’t wait to try this out. This is the Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder and this is basically a setting powder to mattify the foundation and also the shiny area of your face. I’m very very excited for this.

Kat Von D Beauty Setting Powder

A finishing powder that works on all skin tones, is selfie-friendly (no bounce-back!) and the ultimate power to mask pores. Its got to be Kat Von D Lock It Setting Powder in Translucent. Retail price on their website is $15 for 0.19 oz and it’s a good size for travelling. This could be your daily essential. The formula is finely milled and soft. It gives a lovely dewy finish look that my combination dry skin really appreciate. Did I mention that KVD’s brand is cruelty free? Thought you might want to know.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant

Concealing, sculpting, and brightening the skin made easy with Yves Saint Touche Eclat Radiant Touch in 2 Luminious Ivory. I haven’t tried anything from this brand so I’m really excited to try it out. I can tell you that the packaging is absolutely stunning. The gold color makes it look so luxury and classy. Very well done! I want to display it in my vanity so that I can look at it everything I do my makeup. This is a HIGHLIGHTER that conceals dark circles and highlights your best features, adding instant radiance to your face. It’s available in 10 radiant shades for all skin tones.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gel Liner Crayon

I’ve been obsessed with Marc Jacobs’ makeup lately and I don’t think it’s gonna stop anytime soon.

Here’s the packaging and how cute is this. It comes in a twist tip format which saves you from sharpening. On their website, they claim the formula is exclusive to MARC JACOBS BEAUTY. So, I’m very excited and just can’t wait to try it.¬†

Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Wiz

I love Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Brow Wiz to bits. I mean seriously who doesn’t, right! The shade I got is in Medium Brown. It says on their website its long wearing and smudge proof and I can’t agree more with the claim. The soft spooley end works well by blending the product to a flawless finish. When people compliments you on your gorgeous brows, that’s true joy, you guys!

Tarte Light Camera Lashes Mascara

Let’s talk about mascara before we go to the lip products and it’s none other than the Tarte Light, Camera Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara. The formula is a very rich black and it holds the natural curl of my lashes really well. It’s making them look longer and thicker.

two coats mascara

Would you believe if I tell you that I’ve short and sparse eyelashes? Well not anymore with this cruelty free mascara. No smudging and no raccoon eyes except your lashes looking on point. I feel like this stuff might just be magic …¬†

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Swatches of the smooth, rich shade of NARS Velvety Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. A dark red with cool blue undertones and a matte finish lipstick crayon that’s perfect for the holiday seasons.

nars color swatch

Look at that! Ooh I love the way it smells too. I think it smells like sweet candy,¬†if I describe it correctly. I sucks at describing scents sometimes. But this scents is very delicious and uplifting. As far as the formula goes, it’s very pigmented and smooth. It glides on easily and comfortable to apply. I didn’t encounter any tugging on the lips. So ya, I don’t have anything bad to say about this lip pencil. It’s certainly something that I’ll go back to repurchase over and over again in full size. I love it!¬†

Too Faced Melted Liquified Matte Lipstick

I absolutely adore the shade and the formula of this Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick by Too Faced. I’m loving the shade Sell Out which is described as Matte Soft Pinky Brown. It has great pigmentation with a lightweight feels that’s comfortable in the lips. That’s going to get along real well with me.

#LOTD Too Faced Melted Matte

The formula is thin (it reminds me of Colourpop Ultra Matte’s formula) with an impressive quick dry-down time.¬†Try it yourself and see if you love it as much as I do. Definitely a winner in my book!

beautyblender Original

This is the Original version of a Beauty Blender. I look at this so lovingly. I never want to be without this blender. You know I’m adamant to use and bring it everywhere I go. It’s really a life changer for me in my beauty world. I’ve never looked back to use brushes to apply my foundation since I got this sponge.¬†A life saver you can count on!¬†

Urban Decay Setting Spray

If you’re looking for a vegan type setting spray, Urban Decay All Nighter is your answer.

My skin is dry especially at this time of the year and I’m pleased to say that this spray doesn’t leave my face feeling dry or tight at all. It actually helps hold my makeup so much longer than I expected.¬†This stuff is really great and long wearing. Highly recommend!

Dr Andrew Weil for Origins

So here’s the Dr Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin relief Lotion by Origins. I’m liking the cute packaging. I love green and it’s the perfect me color right here. It smells very aromatic, herbal and divine. I especially this type of scents in my skincare products. It’s so relaxing and calming. I don’t have any acne right now (touch wood) but it’s great to have one ready whenever I need it.¬†

Sephora samples

Here are the 3 samples I picked with my purchase. I got Tony Burch Bel Azur Parfum (is a fragrance for women. Newly launched in 2017), Philosophy Amazing Grace eau de toilette (is a floral perfume with top notes includes mandarin orange and bergamot) and lastly the GlamGlow Supermud mask that I did a post review on last week.

Bought this so that I can have all my favorites in one travel bag. The dream box! Has everything you need on a go from eye, face to lips.

So thank you guys for your time to read and let me know in the comment section what other holiday type of products do you want to see me reviewing. Holiday season is the time that I open up my wallet to its fullest and let the new collection begins.

I’ll see you again on my next blog. Until then bye!

Sharon xoxo

Go Nude! $4 Eyeshadow Palette by Risqu√© Beaut√©

 

I’m super excited to to share with you my latest love that I just picked up over the weekend. This palette is so affordable and it’s going to be my latest day-to-day go to for quick and beautiful eye look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I bought this at Dollarama and I swatched it in the store. It’s so pigmented that I’ve to get it but is it justifiable?

In short yes! The GO Nude Eyeshadow Palette is a stunning collection and I’m going to tell you why.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First up for the packaging. The palette comes in a pink and sturdy metal casing.  It’s a slim palette considering it’s size, so convenient for travelling and popping into larger makeup bags. I love that they use metal packaging for this kind of palette as opposed to cardboard given the price is only $4.

It says on the packaging that this palette is Not Tested on Animals but I can’t find anywhere on the website to confirm this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The hinge makes it easy to open and close the lid. The packaging is slim and sleek which I really appreciate. The pink color design is so pretty and girly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Does this reminds you of the Naked Palette or what? Like honestly just this packaging it reminds me so much of it.

In terms of the shades, there are a total of 12 in the palette mainly consist of neutral nude shades.¬†There is a great selection of both matte and shimmery shades, with the textures and formulations being on point throughout. You get¬†9 matte shades thrown in the mix and the shades are of warm, cool and neutral tones.¬†When it comes to texture, they’re creamy and smooth to apply. They blend beautifully.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You’ll get a full size mirror and as you can see you get a total of twelve beautiful shades for less $5 a palette.

I believe it comes with a dual ended applicator like those of Naked Palette but the palette I got is missing a brush. I’m not completely bummed since I don’t really care about palette brush anyways.

1-6shadows7-12shadows

Here are the colors up closed. I want to do it a few up close shots for you guys.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ll go ahead and swatch all these eyeshadows and as always I applied these shadow swatches on my bare hand.

I can see this becoming one of my go to palettes this year as the shades are so me. If you want to get your hands on one I’d recommend you heading to your nearest dollar store before they’re out of stock. However, it seems to be available on ebay or amazon website.

Will you be picking this up? What do you guys think? Share it in the comment below.

Thank you guys for taking the time to read and I hope this was helpful for you. I’ll talk to you guys very soon. Bye!

Top Box Luxury Essentials LE

 

Hey everybody! Thanks so much for stopping by and here’s the story I’ve been getting more requests to feature a more luxury brand makeup on my blog. I’m talking brands like Bobbi Brown, GlamGlow, Darphin and more from this box that’s I’ll be talking here in this blog.

TOPBOX Luxury Essentials

I do understand your concern to know whether products like this are really much better than the products you can get from the drugstore. You know that I’m very familiar with what’s happening at the drugstore but admittedly I haven’t tried or dabbled quite enough products from very high end price range just so you know.

TOPBOX PR samples
#press samples

I’ve been experimenting them on and off for about the past weeks so let’s jump in.

First thing first, I’ll show you what’s in this Luxury Essentials box.

#TOPBOX BEAUTY BOX
Deluxe & Mini size samples
  • Smashbox¬†| Photo Finish Foundation Primer (7.1mL deluxe sample)
  • Bobbi Brown¬†| Crushed Lip Colour – Ruby (2.25g¬†deluxe sample)
  • Darphin¬†| Exquis√Ęge Beauty Revealing Cream¬†(4mL deluxe sample)
  • Est√©e Lauder |¬†Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex ll (7mL deluxe sample)
  • Clinique¬†| TAKE THE DAY OFF MAKEUP REMOVER (50mL deluxe sample)
  • GlamGlow¬†|¬†SUPERMUD (15g deluxe sample)

CLINIQUE MAKEUP REMOVER

First thing I like to talk about is the Clinique Take the day off Makeup Remover. Whenever anyone asks me which oil free makeup remover I’d recommend, I pretty much always say Clinique.

I’ve just went through my first bottle recently and was pleased when I received a deluxe size sample as back up. This is my favorite makeup remover this month. I use it on my eyes, lips and even on my face and it does a great job in removing all. I don’t have to rub my eyeballs out with this product. A gentle wipes is all it takes to remove all your stubborn eye makeup. It does seems a little pricey for a makeup remover but it totally worth it on how well it performs. This stuff is magic!

GLAMGLOW FACE TREATMENT

GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment¬†is a little bit on a hefty price but I’ve good experience with this product so far. It’s my third time trying it last week and I actually like it. It cleans my pores out like no other while giving it a blur out look. I notice the blackheads around my nose is not visible. The smell reminds me of the chinese herbal roots medicine that my granny used to brew when I was little. It’s not terrible actually, you just got to get used to it. This product dries up pretty quickly on the skin so, be sure to apply it fast then leave it on for 5-20 minutes and let it do its magic. You might feel a little tingling for a second or two as the mud started to do its thing. My skin felt really clean after this, I mean really really clean and soft.¬†

If you’ve sensitive skin then you might want to skip on this one.

ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR

Moving on is the Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder. I just want to say tell you guys upfront that his product is not new to me. I’ve used it long before I started blogging and have been loving it since then. I just felt like I didn’t have a great opportunity to talk about it until now. So here we go! I’m going to say that this repair serum is a hidden gem type of status.

I had first wore this product it my late twenties, and fast forward to today I’m revisiting a product that I truly love. When I got this sample, I immediately start using it. I’m so impressed with the improvement on my skin. I notice my skin looks radiant and smooth in texture wise. A flashback on why I love it was because this serum really helps reduce fine lines on my forehead significantly.¬† I was glad I started early with this product. It works great and I highly recommend it! It’s like walking back on memory lane.

DARPHIN SKINCARE
Exquis√Ęge Beauty Revealing Serum

My first time trying out this brand by Darphin is awesome. As we all know, skincare product is something that just can’t be a one time thing because it needs time to work. . So, let just say that I’m in the stage of figuring it out now but I can tell you that after using it for about two weeks now, I notice my skin feels firmer and less dull.

It’s a lightweight gel that keeps my skin feeling well hydrated. It’s not greasy or drying at all in case you’re curious to know. I can’t stop falling in love with this heavenly scents. It smell so so good! For product that really works,¬†I would change my skincare regimen for this. Major thumbs up from me!

SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH PRIMER

In this box you’ll also get a mini size version of the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. This product has been in the market for a while and a lot of people has been talking about it.¬†I’ve heard many mixed reviews about this product but I’m one of the many that find this primer works well on me.

I wore it again for my daughter’s birthday dinner last night and I got so many compliments on my flawless makeup.¬†This primer is a dream come true. It’s super lightweight, feels wonderfully silky and gives my skin a flawless look. I’ve never felt anything quite like it before and it felt almost high-tech in my opinion. What do you think? Have you tried this primer before? Share it in the comments below.

I like to apply them all over my face. You just need a small pea size product to cover the whole face. Once set, I go ahead to apply my foundation and the rest of my makeup. This primer is a universal translucent gel that works for every skin tone. Perfect!

BOBBI BROWN LIPSTICK

I usually buy lipsticks in mauve nude or classic red so when I saw this in my TopBox essentials I just flipped out. A gorgeous mini by¬†Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in the shade Ruby. It’s described as a mid-tone ruby red.

Lately I’ve been rocking on some of my favorite darker red and berry lipsticks and since you guys like the lip swatches I did on my previous posts. I thought I’d put a #LOTD in this post as well.

#LOTD Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip
#LOTD in the shade Ruby

I gave it a whirl and boy look how pretty is this! It’s definitely ruby on my lips you guys. The formula goes on sheer and pigmented. It feels very comfortable on the lips. It’s save to say it qualifies for MLBB (My Lips But Better) lipstick.¬†A smooth, sheer and satin shade that¬†I think will look great on anyone this holiday seasons. You need to try Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color if you haven’t already.

Do let me know in the comment if you like to see this type of post again or just sprinkle in more luxury product reviews on my blog. Bear in mind that I’m by no means abandoning drugstore like that’s my happy place.

What do you think? Would you pick up this box? Let me know in the comments!

I’m just happy with these products. Many thanks to TOPBOX for these gorgeous press samples.¬†You can enjoy a 15% off your first purchase with the offer code TOPBOX15!¬†

Thank you guys for taking the time to read and I hope this was helpful for you. I’ll talk to you guys very soon. Bye!

Get The Look with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Makeup

 

I’m completely obsessed with every single products which was sent to me by this pr company.¬† Most of you know that I love the brand Neutrogena and I’ve been wanting to try their makeup line for the longest time. So having these makeup products to try is truly a dream come true since we don’t have it here in Canada.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m introducing you guys to a line of makeup with hydrating hyaluronic acid from Neutrogena. I’ve four new products from the Hydro Boost line that I’m very excited to talk about today.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First thing I want to talk about is the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment by Neutrogena.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a clear transparent plastic packaging. Very easy to bring it along in your makeup bag. Super nourishing and gentle to the lips. On their website they claim that it makes lips look and feel hydrated for 24 hours. Honestly, I don’t wear makeup for more than 12 hours duration so I can’t tell if it stays hydrated for 24 hours but I can say that when I tried it on, I was quite impressed with the result. It’s not going anywhere unless you start eating.

neutrogena-lip-balm-swatch.jpg

Available only in one shade and here’s a swatch my finger pick up directly from the pan. A colorless pigment that you can wear and great for everyday. It’s jammed packed with products that a little really goes a long way. It’s moist and comfortable on the lips. Definitely snap it up before the arrival of cold and dry season.

If you’re new to the world of lip balm this is a great place to start because it’s very easy to work on and so affordable. It’s very hydrating to the lips and not waxy whatsoever. I had it on again yesterday and it lasted me for 3-4 hrs until I had a bowl of ramen noodle for lunch.

Neutrogena nourishing long wear

Moving on is the Nourishing Long Wear Eyeshadow + Build in Primer. I’ll be going through this quad for you and giving you my opinion. It comes in a stripe format which I really adore. I do like the color scheme in it. You’re getting four eyeshadows and a mini dual ended sponge applicator.

Color swatch hydro boost shadows

The quality of these shadows are pretty consistent in my opinion. It has that silky and velvety texture feels which I really like. This product will be amazing for beginners. And if, you want something that you could wear daily and yet get that natural look, these shades definitely fit the bill!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These shadows are good, I mean we’re talking good pigmentation here. The shadow on my right side is very smooth and buttery to touch while the rest are equally smooth with a more powdery consistency. They’re easy to apply and blend nicely. They applied evenly which I really appreciate from powder shadows. I did noticed this shadow kick up some powder but it doesn’t really bother me very much since I just have to tap the excess powder off before I do my thing.¬†I’d say these shades are nice for your every day wear.

Neutrogena hydrating tint

This Natural Ivory shade Hydrating Tint would be perfect for Nicole Kidman but it’s definitely too light for my NC25 skin tone. I’m going to skip talking about the color but instead focusing on the formula and the packaging.

I love the formula of this foundation. It claims as a hydrating foundation that’s better for your skin than wearing no makeup at all! I agree with their claim. It’s so lightweight and comfortable that you wouldn’t feel you had it on.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a cute bottle packaging with a silver twist on cap that looks really luxe. I do appreciate big doe foot applicator like so. It’s able to pick up products like no other.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the formula so much, I need to get the correct shade for my skin tone right away. If you’re looking for a flawless look that’s good quality and great value for money, this product really packed a punch. It’s amazing!

As I was wrapping up this post, I received two darker shades foundation from my pr agent since the first one was too light. So I think I’ll do a separate post dedicated to this product. Don’t forget to stay tuned for the next post if you want to see other color swatches in action.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another new lip product line I want to talk about is the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The lip shine name is call Velvet Wine. A new formula that’s non-drying and not sticky. Lip gloss that locks the moisture and gives your lips that intense conditioning shine. As far as the wand applicator is concerned, I noticed that it comes a little too big. You need to pull and push the applicator with more force out or in from the tube. But the wand applies evenly and glides on the lips ever so smoothly if I can say so.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I highly recommend the shades¬†Deep Cherry and Velvet Wine which is beautiful for fall and festive holidays. I just can’t get enough of this lovely color!

#LOTD On my lips I’m wearing the shade Velvet Wine

I’m loving it! My lips feels so moist, plump and juicy. It’s the best feeling ever for a lip shine in my opinion. It gives a luxurious finish that I truly appreciate. This is a winner in my book. Such a gorgeous formula that I’ll never get sick of.¬†If you haven’t tried this Hydrating Lip Shine yet, I urge you to add this to your makeup bag!

Let me know what you think of these! Have you tried any makeup from Neutrogena? What are your favorite products?

I see these shades to be versatile and travel friendly. You can play with different look with this quad. They’re really good quality and very pigmented. They go on evenly and these bright metallic blue and red are interesting colors to wear for a dramatic evening look.¬† The shine that it has is so stunning.

Oh, it’s so good!

Current Favorites

 

Hey guys! I’m back today to do kind of current favorites post because I was hoping to make it into our monthly beauty series. Comment below if you like to read this type of post and so let’s get back to my current favorites.

Current Beauty Favorites

Today, I’m kind of doing mostly my current things. I really like all of these products so I thought I’ll talk about them. So, I’m going to talk about mostly makeup but I do have a few kind of prep skincare bits.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Starting off with SPF, I’ve been so obsessed with SPF this past summer and the two that I’ve been using the most so far and that I’ve been really liking are the Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face. This one has SPF 50 so it definitely give enough sunscreen protection from UVA and UVB when days I’m going to be outside more.

I’ve been liking this so I wanted to mention it because some people have been asking me about it. I do like¬†how lightweight it feels and the best part is it’s not sticky nor greasy and it doesn’t leave any white residues on the skin. It sinks into skin very well and so easy to spread on the skin. I feel like Purescreen is true to it’s name.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The other thing that I’ve been diligently using is the Aveeno Positively Ageless Day with SPF 30. I’ve been loving this brand forever so I really love this one because I find that it sinks into the skin really well and the other thing I love about this is that it leaves my skin feels so nice and moisturized. It smells really good and I just can’t get bored over it. Love the SPF coverage and how hydrating it makes my skin. This product doesn’t leave my skin looking glowy or shinny.¬† I do notice there’s a certain radiant glow to the skin and if you’re not into that, then maybe you know that’s something to consider. I’ve combination to dry skin so it’s not a big deal either way. I like this so much more than any other regular drugstore day cream moisturizer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another skincare product that I want to mention is the Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate. They claim it’s their #1 serum for younger looking and radiant skin and I totally agree. I got mine in a deluxe sample format (8ml) but for a full size they comes in between 30ml to 75ml a bottle. I’ve been using for a while now and honestly I did noticed a significant improvement on my dull and dry skin. I literally used only a pearl size of product for both sizes of my face. I don’t need to use a lot of this by any means and it’s just part of my evening routine now. I just use a tiny little bit every single night.

Make Up For Ever Water Blend

Okay, so moving on to makeup products. The first thing is the Makeup Forever Water Blend Face and Body Foundation. I did a full review post on my blog a while ago and if you like to visit, I’ll leave the link here. I want to talk about this particular one because it has become my favorite mid-range liquid foundation which isn’t specifically for face but also the body. It was sent to me and I’ve absolutely liking it a lot. Even though I’ve many face products to test out, I always find my way back to this one. I’m so impressed with the formula and the coverage. It wears really nice and long lasting. I would say you would get a solid 8 hours out of it. If you’re dry or with combination skin you might really like this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You guys probably have heard all the hypes and raves about this Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara on YouTube so I do want to quickly talk about it. I don’t wear a lot of mascara if you know me or have been following me on my blog. I wear them occasionally or when I really want a little extra definition to the lashes.

This I felt like it gave a great separation of lashes and also making them really nice and full. I definitely recommend this to you guys that needs something that’s flake free and will stay on your lashes nice and long wearing throughout the day. I didn’t have any transfer or anything like that.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next thing I want to talk about is the¬†Dolly Wink Eyeliner.¬†I’m a huge fan of liquid eyeliner in general and I‚Äôve been loving this for the past few weeks and can see it becoming a staple make-up bag go-to. I just love their overall performance. It goes on very easily and it dries to a matte finish. So yeah, not much else to say about it. I really like it so check out Tokyu Hands or Dolly Wink website, if you’re into Japanese makeup products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m bringing back again two of my old-time favorite lipsticks from Lancome and it’s their Color Design Sensational Effect Lipstick.¬†I’ve been obsessed with nude and red lip color so these are just right up my street. Trendy Mauve is described as a cream caramel pink and Designer Bloom is a beautiful pink berry with a nice sheen to it. It goes on buttery smooth and comfortable on the lips. The colors are well pigmented and so lightweight. I always return to Lancome because it’s the only brand that truly works for me. It’s a beautiful color lipsticks that makes you feel POSH!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been wanting to try this for a while because I know tons of people were talking about how good it sets the makeup on. I’ve been loving this and happy that I’m really to have found something that you know is performing well for me. Thanks to Mist & Fix by Make Up For Ever!

I think that’s it for this current favorites and I hope you guys enjoyed it and I see you soon. Bye!

I‚ô•Makeup Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches

 

Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. What a better way to start the week then with a blog post? Today’s post I’ll be talking about the I‚ô•Makeup Eyeshadow Palette in Black Velvet.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This isn’t a brand new palette but it’s to me. I talked briefly about this palette in my old UK Beauty Haul post a while ago so I’m excited to share my two cents.

This palette houses a selection of 16 eyeshadows¬†including 3 shimmers and 13 beautiful matte shades. I really like the shiny black heart for the extra glam it gives to the packaging. The velvety material feels nice to touch and this packaging is really luxe. I can’t get over with the cute packaging yet.

I‚ô•Makeup Eyeshadow Palette by Makeup Revloution

As I mentioned before in my previous blog, I appreciate brands that named each and every one of their eyeshadows. It makes life so much easier especially for beauty blogger like me. Can we just admire the full mirror that comes with this palette. Just look how big it is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These eyeshadows are highly pigmented and easy to use. It has a beautiful color selection from light to mid-toned crease shade and black. Although there are only three shimmer shades they still offer a nice range; a champagne (Long), a bronze (Feel) and a gun metal (Cry) shade. You can wear them natural for everyday look to a dramatic smoky eye for evening wear. The choices are endless.

It tends to blend out easier than most powder shadows do. It’s long wearing and won’t crease on you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Left half of the palette is slighty warm-toned while the right half presents a much cooler shades 

This palette is so affordable and it’s a great one to go for if you want to test some cool-toned and warm-toned matte eyeshadows all in the same palette. I see myself reaching out for this palette and do a different eye looks with them.

Makeup Revolution color swatch

A closed up look of the color swatch I picked up directly from the pan.

Black velvet row 1
Row #1 L-R: True|Want|Long|Feel|Black (Black and Velvet are two identical shades)
Black velvet row 2
Row #2 L-R: Baby|Please|Sweet|Sin|Tender (True and Tender are very similar in color as you can see on the swatches)|Slow  
Black velvet row 3
Row #3 L-R: Sweet (Yes, a repeat but different in shade)|Bring|Wild|Cry|Velvet  

Out of these eyeshadows my favorite from this palette is going to be all the shades from row #3 which is a warmer toned! I really enjoy playing with this palette and would recommend to any matte shadow wearers. It’s not a bad palette at all and totally deserve more hypes and raves.

Let me know if you’ve been wearing colored eyeshadows. I’d love to know what your favorite shades and palettes are. I’m always on the lookout for something new to try!

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed reading my opinion and how this product works for me.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Annabelle Drugstore Beauty Products

 

 

Annabelle skin true bb cream

Brief story: Marcelle is a Canadian company that also owns Annabelle makeup brand. They claim that their products are cruelty-free and do not test on animals.

Back packaging description

The packaging of this Skin True Natural Lightweight Makeup comes in a basic plastic tube.

I’m wearing this yesterday and so far I like the consistency of this formula. It doesn’t feel runny or overly thick that’s really nice. The coverage is lightweight with a nice natural finish which I really appreciate since I’m not a huge fan of heavy and thick foundation on the skin.

Other than that, I don’t have much to report until I’ve fully tested it out. So stay tuned for more upcoming development on my blog.

Skin true color swatch

Here’s a closed-up swatch of the product in the shade Sun Beige.

Annabelle Cream Bb

I picked up¬†the Annabelle BB Cream with SPF 15 and the shade I got is in Medium-Dark¬†. I’ve to say I’m quite impressed with color match. I’m NC25 and was surprise the shade wasn’t too dark for my skin tone. I notice this shade leans more to medium tone rather than dark. The downside is that it has only 2 color ranges from this line.

Annabelle packaging tube

It comes in a tube packaging which I find convenient and travel friendly.¬†This BB cream has yellow undertone and it hides an annoying gist I had a few days ago prior to blogging this post. It was right on my chin and it’s not the prettiest thing. I did a test run with this product and it surpass my expectation.¬†It gives your skin that lovely satiny finish rather than matte or dewy look.

Annabelle bb cream swatch

The formula goes on smoothly and blends evenly on all parts of my face. We all know that BB cream is not a foundation so don’t expect full coverage from it. It works well as a BB cream in that sense if you know what I mean. The coverage is between light to medium and it’s buildable. I like the satin look on my skin. Annabelle, you really killed it on this one!

I would recommend this to anyone who has combination to dry skin and if you’ve oily skin you might not like it. Since I’ve combination to dry skin type, I’ve really been enjoying this. It’s really a great product in general. You get a lot of product for what you pay.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From this collection, I also picked up their BB Skin Perfect Concealer in the shade Medium. It works perfectly to cover any blemishes and dark circles I’ve especially on my undereye area.

Skin Perfect Concealer Annabelle

This is a twist up stick concealer that’s available in three shades. I usually wear liquid concealer but this has definitely change the way I see a stick concealer. I just love the creamy texture.¬†It runs so soft and ever so smoothly without any tugging or looking cakey.

I’ve been wearing this since I got it and it has become my most reached cream concealer by far. It covers my red blemishes and uneven skin amazingly.

Skin perfect concealer

The color blends prefectly and the coverage is great.¬† I’m pleased to have made this purchase. Best thing is it doesn’t cost an arm or a leg. Definitely give this a go!

Let me know if you guys have tried any of these and what stands out for you? Share in the comment.
