My Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette of 2018

 

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

Today I’m going to share with you the latest eyeshadow palette which I ordered through¬†Sephora¬†website on Boxing Day. And it’s none than the Huda Beauty New Obsession Palette that I’m going to talk about in great length down below.

#HudaBeauty OBsession Palette

Out of the four Huda Beauty new Obsessions Palettes line, the Warm Brown Obsession that I’m going to show you right now is the only palette that had one shimmer color and the rest were matte in case you’re wondering.

The intense and incredibly pigmented shadows just blew me away. All the shades in this palette are my favorites. Love the color selections and the versatility. The packaging is super cute and made with a sturdy cardboard material. A compact size palette that’s travel friendly and it comes with a good size mirror which I really appreciate.

Huda Beauty Obsession Eyeshadow Palette

This Warm Brown palette¬†houses eight mattes and one shimmer shadows. These are some gorgeous, textured shadows with INSANE pigmentation. The color tones of browns, reds, oranges and that metallic bronze shadow in the middle is drop dead gorgeous. They’re suitable for any eye color or skin tone.

I’m obsessed with this palette. They’re both full of the most gorgeous, build-able colors that take your look from day to night.¬†This shade over here is like life. It’s so gorgeous and it just lifts your eyes in a good way. They will give your eyes this beautiful, 3D pop that I‚Äôm obsessed with!

Texture wise, I’d say quite impressive. I’m pleasantly pleased with the formulation and the color payoff. A little goes a long way with these powder shadows.

Huda Obsession Warm Brown Swatch

The three matte shades here are a total winner in my book. If I were to only pick one palette to wear in 2018, this is my go to palette right now. There’s no question about it!

The first color from the left is Maroon Brown, then a Burnt Orange Light Brown followed by Orange Brown.  

Huda Obsession Warm Brown #2

Next row you get a Matte Medium Deep Neutral Brown, with a single Metallic Bronze and an Eggshell Cream color.   

So here are the nine eyeshadow shades from the Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsession Palette look like on swatches. It’s interesting that you’ve that shimmery metallic shade¬† and then it’s surrounded by all these matte shades. Quite an interesting concept don’t you think!

Huda Obsession Warm Brown Swatch #3

The 3rd row is a Muted Matte Coral, next is the Soft Tan and lastly a Medium Warm Brown. 

I like all the mattes formulation simply because even though they’re pigmented, they blends incredibly well. They go on smoothly but not as creamy as I’d wish them to be but¬† it doesn’t bother me at all.

If you’re a color junkie, this palette has everything you need in a compact and affordable way. Well worth the investment!

You can also check out their three other palettes in Electric Obsession, Mauve Obsession and Smokey Obsession at Sephora or Huda Beauty websites whichever you prefer.

I hope you enjoy and find this post interesting. Again, thank you so much for all the love and support! It means the world to me!

Don’t forget to stay tuned for more interesting and exciting stories coming up every Monday!

Sharon xoxo

A Peek Inside My PR Box

Welcome to my second blog post of 2018 everyone! I’ve been back to blogging for a week now and I’m so excited to be sharing with you this new series that I’ve been working on to create since last December.

I’ve been receiving many PR packages from brands that I really love and I thought it would be great for me to show you and talk beauty related stuff with you guys. I’m so overwhelmed and grateful to all the brands that have sent me such amazing products to test and try.

I like to give a trendy shoutout to Mr Kim for sending me these amazing pr samples all the way from Korea. A big thanks to you!

#Pack-Tory Mask Pack
*PR Package

When it comes to¬†K-Beauty face products, you can put any of their skincare products on my face and I’d have no complaint whatsoever. I think I’d be quite happy honesty. I’ve been obsessed with Korean skincare brands for the longest time and since I‚Äôm also a huge mask lover as it is, I thought I’d give them all a go and break them down for you. Let‚Äôs see if they make it into my face mask box!

#Pack-Tory

I really like the the box packaging and it would make a perfect gift for your friends or a gift to surprise yourself this coming Valentine. I got two packs of Moisture Hydrogel and two Anti-Aging Hydrogel Mask by Pack:Tory in this cute box. For a retail box, it comes in a pack of 8.

If you’re in the market to look for a get ready skincare that’s both hydrating and helps anti-aging for your skin these Gel Sheet Masks are made for you. If you’ve been experimenting dry patches in the winter, this mask will sort it out in no time. It’s a quick fix for the skin!

Gel Face Mask by Packtory

If you’ve dry skin like me, you need to be very choosy about which masks you put on your face. Many¬†masks that promise to purify, shrink pores and remove blackheads are¬†extremely¬†drying. Instead, look for masks that offer hydration, soothing, or added moisture and hydrogel mask is a great option for those with dry skin.

Inside each pack, you’ll find two separate gel pieces like so. The first half is for the top as shown below and the other part is the bottom half.

Testing

It feels cooling and very lightweight. I really like how hydrating and skinly smooth this product make my skin feels after. The next two days my skin still feels soft and that’s pretty amazing in my opinion.

With the Hydrogel Anti-Aging pack that I’ve tried, i ntoiced my skin has improved significantly. I would repurchase when my sepnding budget permits.

I’ll definitely make room for these masks in my stash. This stuff is amazing! Kudos Pack:Tory!¬†

#Skinae Patch

Next is¬†Skinae Acwin Plus Derm Acne Spot Pimple Absorbing Cover Patch.¬†I’ve heard many great things about this popular product among Koreans and I was so lucky to have the chance to try it out for myself.

Acne Patch by Skinae (Korea)

This product is fragrance free, alchohol free and cruelty free which means no animal testing. Product contains one sheet of patches with 20 patches.

#Skinae Instruction Patch

I get pimples occasionally so this stuff is really great help. When I see a pimple started to form I just put this patch on and leave it overnight and take it off in the morning, the pimple was gone! It works really well on zits, wounds, acne and zits, I’m quite impressed!

The dot

The thin clear hydrocolloid patch feels similar to a hydrogel sheet mask in texture, adhering your skin strongly even through showers and washing. You definitely need to give this a go! I highly recommend it.

Skinae Collagen Eye Patch

Last but not least we got Skinae Phyto Collagen Eye Patch that comes in a pack of 15 sheets. This product is nature-friendly eye patch with no animal originated ingredients.

Individual Packet by Skinae

I’ve been testing out these eye patches non-stop for the last two weeks. I can see my dark under eye circles and puffiness gone each time I use them. I need to try out this longer to see if it reduce the fine lines on the skin. This stuff is so lightweight and comfortable you wouldn’t even noticed you had them on.

Skinae made in Korea

This patch is smooth and soothing on the skin. I really enjoy this stuff.

EYe Patch testing

It’s easy to get distracted by all the different types of Korean beauty products out there, but if you’re a k-beauty lover, try visiting Amazon website to start your year off right!

Leave me a comment if you like reading this type of post. I’m excited to show you guys all the goodies I received from the PR brands. I love to hear your thoughts and if you enjoyed reading this post.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. If you’re new to my blog, make sure you follow me on my blog.

What I Got For Christmas 2017!

 

Happy New Year 2018 everyone!

Welcome to my first blog of 2018! I hope you had the most amazing break. It took me longer that I anticipated to kick start my blog after a long holiday. I called it recharging!

So, in today’s post I’m just going to show you what I got for Christmas. It’s just a bit of fun and I love to hear what other people get as well.

Yves Rocher Hand Cream

Well, I’m going to start with some hand creams I got. These are all things I got from my loved ones on Christmas. They’re pretty random stuff and that’s what I like about them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A holiday edition Yves Rocher Hand Creams in four scents. If you haven’t heard about Yves Rocher, it’s a #1 Beauty Care brand in France. And in this gift set you get a¬†Coconut, Mango Coriander, Bourbon Vanilla and Olive Petitgrain. They all smells amazing¬†but the Olive Petitgrain is definitely my top favorite. It smells so good and so relaxing. I really like the floral scent!

The fragrances are pretty strong in a good way and they linger on for hours.

It feels like it definitely does what it says on the packaging – my hands feel hydrated, smooth, nourished and ready for the long cold weather. On top of that, it’s also paraben-free¬†and they’re not tested on animals. What are you waiting for, dive into botanical sensoriality product line right now!

Tile Mate

Moving on to the next thing I got under the Christmas tree is this Tile Mate Key Finder by Infineon. You can get yours online at Amazon for only C$29.99 a pack.

Tile key finder

It’s smalll and thin which makes it easy to loop it on anything you don’t want to lose for example your phone, backpack, keys and so on. This is game changer, I used to be forgetful when it comes to where I leave my car keys, but everything changed after I installed this. So easy to use!

Tile Mate Infineon

It’s so easy to install. Use your smartphone to make your Tile Mate ring when it‚Äôs nearby but out of sight.

A smart device that allows you to find things at your finger tips. Don’t fall behind the bandwagon, join the largets lost and found network right now with Tile!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Everyone in my family knows I couldn’t go on my day without coffee in the morning. So what better gift to receive than a coffee mug that show the coffee production, right! I know it’s going to be my most favorite mug since my little boy chose it while they went shopping at Stokes. Thank you for this thoughtful gift. I love it!¬†

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next thing I got is a Marseilles French Press by Stokes. The original price is C$14.99 but it’s on discount now for only $7.98 that’s close to 50% off. The description on their website says it’s crafted using plastic and borosilicate glass, this press will keep your freshly brewed coffee at its ideal serving temperature.

I haven’t got the chance to try this product yet but today feels like a good day to make my own freshly pressed coffee. I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning and I also like the sound of no one talking to me while I drink it!

You also GET 10% OFF YOUR FIRST ORDER when you sign up to receive their newsletter.

ASUS SONIC MASTER

I save the best for the last and it’s the¬†ASUS SonicMaster¬†a gift I received from my hubby. Honestly, I don’t care much about notebook or laptop as long as it has a soft and comfortable keyboard to type on. I also like if the laptop is lightweight and easy to bring around not mention a nice and sharp widescreen LED with good sound effect.

My fingers are twitching to type on these keyboard after my hubby helps me installed all the programs and apps that I need for blogging.

As always thanks so much for stopping by and read. Hope you find this post interesting and helpful.

What’s the most random thing you got last Christmas? Share it in the comment below.

Top 5 Picks Of Things To Do Before 2018!

 

Hey everyone! Welcome back to another blog post. I know this sounds crazy but we can finally celebrate Christmas in less than five days depending on which part of the world you’re in. That’s insane! I’ve been thinking since we’re doing the countdown t the end of the year, it would be cool to think of things we can do together and accomplish before the year ends. To tick off a check mark on the list basically.

Here are the five things I personally wanted to do before the end of the year. You can join by sharing in the comments what are some of the things you like to do or have completed doing.

SpringCleaning

#1 is have a Spring Clean before the end of the year. This will set you up so nicely for the New Year. You’ll feel like the weight of past year is lifted off your shoulder. You’ll feel so fresh now that your house is so clean. I’m such a hoarder and I seriously need to go through some of my clothes, makeup, books and magazines etc… I keep putting this off because it’s such a big job but I really want to do something in December. I want to go through everything and give them to charity stores in my local area. I hope this inpires you to do the same. Donate to the needly or other people who you know would benefit from it more than you.

benjaminconstant-passees-300x242

#2 is go to a Gallery or Exhibitions. I love art painting and always on the lookout for interesting exhibitions to go to. The last exhibition I went to was Marvels and Mirages of Orientalism at museum of fine arts. It was a french painter by the name Jean-Joseph Benjamin Constant. But there were some other famous painters in that gallery. I like going to galleries like so, I just allow myself being pulled into the art piece one by one. I like to come out of an exhibition feelng like I know more about someone in the world or something of the past. I love this kind of feeling! Just challenge yourself to find a gallery of exhibition this December.

#Roadtrip to Laurentian

#3 go on a Road Trip. Invite your family, close friends or your significant other to go on a road trip. I love going on a road trip and I think it’s so much fun. Drive to a city you’ve never been before and just chill out. Our recent road trip was a few months back in the fall and I’m planning on going to another one in December. So I’m really excited! I look so much forward to this. December is the best time to go out to see beautiful Christmas decorations, lights and all.

cinema

#4 go to a Cinema. This again could be very simple. It’s such an easy thing to do but not I personally am guilty of that. I love going to the cinema in my teenage years, it’s my favorite thing. My boyfriend used to take me to the cinema at least 2-3 times a month. It was so much fun. I love getting popcorns, I feel like cinema popcorns is the best, don’t you! I still love watching movies in the cinema after all these years and especially during Christmas where so many new movies are playing and some classics that’s so worth checking them out. It gets me in like that kind of festive mood which I love!

thankful

#5 take this time to reflect. I personally like to just be grateful for all the good and the bad that comes with it in 2017. So, don’t wait for tomorrow be thankful, grateful and be totally blessed today!¬†I think December is a great time to kind of look back your life and jus think how great it’s been. It important for you as an individual to know how well you’ve done this year or what you’ve accomplished and appreciate your hard work. Don’t beat yourself up for things that you haven’t achieved this year. It’s okay, you can do it next year. That’s absolutely fine. Be grateful for all those things that you get to be doing.

Let me know just what you’re doing this month? I’d love to know from you. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and don’t forget to check back for the final series of #Blogmas Bag Monday #4. More new and exciting contents coming up after the holiday. Make sure you follow my blog to stay tuned!

Thank you so much for stopping by and read. I wish you a great week ahead!

Skincare Junkie Must Haves|#BlogmasBagMonday 3

 

Hey everyone! Welcome back to #BlogmasBagMonday 3. In today’s series, I’m going to be talking about my winter skincare because since I’m spending a lot of my winter at home trying out lots of new skincare products from brands that were sent to me. You guys know that I love skincare and I’m slightly high maintenance so after trying out these products for the past one to three weeks or so. I’m here to share the good news with you guys.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But before we jump in, I’ve a confession to make. I got ahead of myself with all these blogmas thingy and out of excitement I went ahead and pulished a bonus post on the Bochery’s skincare product review. If you’re interested to read more about my two cents opinion, just click to the link.

#Blogmasbadmonday #3

Long story short, instead of only two skincare products, I decided to throw in an extra two more products from Fresh¬†to talk about this week. Most of the stuff here, I’ve tried for more than a week and some much longer.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration cream

I love this Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream a lot and definitely go through it pretty quickly since winter make my skin really dry and I need all the protection this deep I could get and this moisturizing cream is the answer.

I can feel a litle tingle when I first had it on but this product really make my skin feel so good and moist. It’s quite rich and it’s really hydrating, so I love that. It’s super effective and after you use this your skin will be the softest it has ever been.¬†If you’ve never tried it, definitely go check it out. Love this stuff!

Fresh Vit Nectar moisture glow
*pr sample

This is the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream and this is when I go out to the grocery or pick up my kid. I adore the fruity scents of nectar, it smells amazing! The texture is just incredibily lightweight and it’s just another moisturizing cream that I wear on top of the deep hydration face cream I was talking about earlier.

I really really love this citrusy scent of the face cream. It’s nourshing but not heavy which is a really good thing. This stuff will leave your skin with that healthy looking glow but most importantly, it does keep my skin moist in the day. It’s a perfect gift for any skin type.

The cutest thing in this series is the Soy Face Cleansing Milk. I got this from my Sephora Favorite Ultimate Skincare Vault box awhile back and I finally get the chance to try it out recently. Normally to remove my makeup, I of course have my favorite drugstore makeup removing cleanser but since trying out this stuff¬†I find¬†myself reaching for the latter one more. With this cleanser, you can actually smell the soy milk and floral scents that I really liked. It’s super effective to remove your makeup and leaving your skin squeaky clean. I just love it! I’ve been using it non-stop and will be going back to get the full size for sure.

Fresh Instant Glow highlighter
*pr sample

Lastly, we’re on to makeup stuff now. Last but not least is the Fresh Face Instant Glow Luminizer in Sunset that I’ve been so obsessed with.¬†It comes in a tube packaging and I find it to be very convenient to bring anywhere I go.

I just want to show you how insanely glowy this highlighter was. Can we just take a few minutes to admire it! This stuff is so pigmented, a little goes a long way.¬†This is the one that kind of rose gold in color highlighter. I was expecting it to be subtle and not expect it to be more like pop. I need glow a lot of these days of my life and this is just perfect. I think there’s only two colors that I know of. The other one is Starlight which is more of a white silver. I love that and this is so good!¬†I like to dab it on my cheekbones, nose and cupid’s bow as highlighter. So this is definitely one of my favorite highlighter.

To me that’s a few things that I think any skincare junkies would need and appreciate. I don’t know if it’s a must haves for you but it’s like how a huge skincare junkie would need. So I hope you found this useful and definitely check them out at Fresh or Sephora website.

Let me know if you’re a skincare junkie and let me know what are your must-haves skincare products in the comment below.

I really love all the products I’ve tried from this brand and all my other products that only skincare junkie will understand. So that’s everything on this week’s Blogmas Bag Monday. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this and don’t forget to check back next week for the final series of Blogmas Bag Monday week #4.

The products that I’ll be trying for our next and last Blogmas Bag Monday #4 is this.

An Introduction to Boch√©ry Lab Esth√©tique

 

Hey guys! Since December is a Blogmas month, I thought it would be nice for me to add another bonus post for you guys. The other week I was lucky enough to receive a package containing some top up skincare products that I’m excited to test them out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*PR Samples

This is my first time trying out the Nano Face Lab product line by Boch√©ry. They’re full size products and comes in a nice metallic grey tube packaging which I find it to be convenient and travel friendly.

nano firming neck

The first product I want to talk to you about is the Firming Neck &¬†D√©collet√© Cream works as an agent to help delay double chin and decreases the wrinkles of the neck and¬†d√©collet√© (low neckline). I love using firming neck cream in my evening skincare routine just before going to bed. As we age, overtime the skin around the neck will lose its tone and firmness. I’ve seen that on my mom and my aunts and let me tell you that it’s never to early to take care of your skin and the neck area properly.

firming neck swatch Bochery

The creamy formula feels feather light on the skin one might mistaken it for a gel silicone base but it’s not. It has a nice scents that’s so relaxing. I’ve tested this product for a week now and I like how my skin toned up but I think it’s still too early for me to conclude if this product really helps on skin firming or not. I’ll be back to report more of the updates in the coming weeks.

Nano Anti-Age Cream

I’ve always wanted to use Anti-Age Cream on a daily basis and after using this stuff for more than a week my fine lines skin days are finally over. I completely adores this cream. The formula feels moisturizing and so good on the skin. I notice my skin looking more radiant and it doesn’t feel so dry as before. I’ll definitely adding this to my skincare routine.

Swatch anti wrinkle cream

I like wearing it on a bare face but you can wear it over the top of your makeup so do whatever floats your boat. All in all I love this stuff!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is the¬†Boch√©ry¬†Anti-Wrinkle Lift Serum that I’ve been so obsessed with since I started using it. This serum helps to target on my fine lines that need the most attention. I like to wear it under my night cream. It feels cooling when I first applied them. It absorbs fast and I can immediately see the revitalized effect almost immediately. I’m quite impressed with the performance so far.

Bocheryliftserumpump

I appreciate tube packaging that comes in a pump format. It makes life so much easier. Just one pump is all you need for the entire face.¬†So definitely give this a go if you’re on the market for a heavy duty lift serum.

Bochery lift serum swatch .jpg

So there you’ve it, some of the products that I’ve acquired from Boch√©ry lately. If you’re new to this brand then make sure you try some of the products I’ve mentioned above.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. I hope you find this post helpful and comment below which ones are your favorites and if there’s anything you think I need to try next!

Nail Lacquer Trio LE|Cl√© De Peau Beaut√©

 

Hey guys! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. We’ve a snow storm today and it’s freezing cold outside. When it comes to winter inspired nails I love painting my nails with bold and festive nail colors. Is it only me or anyone else who wear bold colors in winter! Winter is one of favorite season because of the festive holidays and the bold colors. I’m very much drawn to deep reds and grays. So, when I received this trio nail lacquers package in my mailbox a couple of weeks ago, I was so thrilled that I share it on my insta story.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*PR Samples

A big shout out to my girlfriend Amanpreet for this lovely PR package. Thank you so very much. I’m really grateful to receive this beautifu¬†Nail Lacquer Trois Collection Nuit de Chine by¬†Cl√© de Peau Beaut√© in my collection.

Collection Nuit de Chine

This is my first time playing with this brand and I’m pleased to say that I love everything about this set, their packaging, colors and the formula are just fabulous. I’m super excited to try these stuff out.

Introducing you to the artist behind this holiday line. Her name is Kathe Fraga and this is her first collaboration with¬†Cl√© De Peau Beaut√©¬†on their Fall 2017 Holiday Limited Edition Collection. The theme of the collection and her art is inspired by the¬†“The Chinese film, In the Mood for Love. The birds in her design represent a couple falling in love.”¬†As an art lover and someone who appreciate art, I really love her beautiful piece of work. She’s a very talented artist!

Trio Nail Lacquers by Cle de Peau

Smoky Veil is described as a deep engulfing ivory gray with a beautiful glossy sheen finishing. Two coats are all you need for the #notd look that I’ll be sharing you down below.¬†¬†¬†

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The scents of these nail lacquers are incredible. I’ve never smell such an amazing feminine and yet sophisticated rose fragrance before. The scents lingered the entire day I had it on.

Did you know that this product is formulated with Argan Tree Oil for moisturizing benefits? That’s a high quality products for your nails.

Nail Lacquer #14

I’m loving the longevity and color in Lacquer Chest described as Noir-red with hidden passion. Once applied and dried, the polish looks so pretty and it smells divine. I’ve been wearing it on my toes for more three weeks now only to see some chips around the edges, which is not bad at all in my opinion.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As for the real test on my fingers, I’m happy to report that it stays on for a good 5-6 days on harsh environment, which aren’t so bad. I’m always rough with my hands – meaning, I don’t wear gloves when I do my dishes. For the ultimate test, I don’t apply top coat either when testing out nail polish just to see its true glory.¬†I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality to say the truth.¬†So, for the color to stay that long, that’s impressive!

Nail Lacquer #13

Gilding The Lily is a dazzling gold glitter which is so pretty. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a closeup look of the consistency and just looks at the gold and black glitters. So very festive and perfect for this holiday season.

#NOTD Cle de Peau

I’m really glad to have tried this stuff out. I know for sure that I’m going to keep wearing them non-stop!

I just found out today that this product went out so fast, it has already been sold out. Sorry that you missed it! But if you’re still interested in their other holiday collections go to their website for more information.

What are some of your go to colors this winter? Do you like a loud color like me or tend to play it safe? Let me know in the comments below.

Hope, Advance & Truth.¬†As we approach nearer to the biggest holiday ever and as year 2017 closing to an end, it’s also a perfect time to reflect the past by giving thanks with words of affirmation and setting new goals for the new year. The names of these eyeshadows speaks to me for example I want to tell myself to press forward, there’s hope, take time, be confidence, make promise, reliance and share positive vibes. Which of these pop up the most to you? Share in the comment and let me know down below!

I’ve been reaching out for Pledge, Forward, Advance and Truth practically the past few days for my everyday neutral eye makeup look.

Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Color Swatch Row 2

Second row from L-R: Positive, Vouch, Accept, Time, Reliance, Confidence, Blaze & Light. These shadows swatches beautifully with only one swipe on bare hands. They’re that pigmented and could we just take a second to just appreciate the stunning colors. I’m loving all the shades in this row. Among the eyeshadows in this palette, I’d say the warmest color tones comes from this row. They’re very versatile and stay on the entire day I was wearing them. I didn’t notice all fall out or creasing from any of the shadows whatsoever. They stay put the entire time which I really appreciate.

Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Color Swatch Row 3

Third row L-R: Vow, Reveal, Oath, Rely, Consent, Willing. Vouch & Promise. The formula and pigmentation of each eyeshadow is quite consistent. They’re soft and smooth in texture, thus making blending so easy. The colors are true to its color. What you see is what you get.

Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Color Swatch Row 4

Last row L-R: Announce, Convey, Assure, Disclose, State, Insist, Bold & Declare are my least favorite shades except for Assure and Insist which are great for smoky eye look. I was hoping Declare to be a really dark matte black but turns out, it’s not as pigmented and a little patchy to my liking. That’s the only complain I’ve from this palette.

#EOTD MAKEUP REVOLUTION EYESHADOW PALETTE

Otherwise, overall I’m quite impressed with this palette. I really like the formula and the color payoff.¬† If you’re down with cool toned shadows and are on the market for a product that feels special with an affordable price tag then this is a great item to add to your makeup collection.

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow To Go

You may have noticed that I’ve been obsessed with Tarte products lately and when I saw this Pro Glow To Go¬†Highlight & Contour Palette on the Sephora website during their Black Friday Sale, it’s obvious I had to get it. There are three products in the set, you get a highlighter, a lip paint and a mascara.

Tarte Pro Glow

This is a two highlighters and one contour powder palette. A trio compact packaging that comes with a big mirror is very travel friendly.¬†The formula is pretty dense (in a good way) so there was not a lot of excess powder kicked up in the pan. The first two highlighters are frosted shimmer and most suitable for someone who likes a shinny and more shimmery highlighter. The matte contour performs¬† amazingly well. It’s highly pigmented and a little goes a long way with this product. I like how easy it blends and the bronze-y finish it gives.

It smell like a delicious cocoa candy, I wish I could eat it.

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow

Top to bottom:

  • Gleam¬†is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen.
  • Burst¬†is a bright, creamy yellow with a golden frosted shimmer.
  • Chisel¬†is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish.

This one product stand out the most for me and I think you guys will love it just as much as I do! The pigmentation is out of this world. It’s insanely beautiful! Just one swipe on the cheekbone is all you need for a beautiful highlight. I wore the shade Burst again yesterday and yes, I think I’m falling in love with this stunning golden highlighter.

I think this palette will work amazing for someone who likes warmer and more intense highlighter like myself. The bad news is it’s not going to work for all skin tones and if you like subtle highlighter then this palette is not for you.

Tarte Lash Paint Mascara

Next is the Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara¬†that’s included in this set. The shade I’ve is in Jet Black. It’s a deluxe sample size tube packaging with a nice floral design on the cap. When I saw the word paint, I’m down with it. I was really excited to test it out. You guys know that I’m always on board to try everything or anything new brands comes out with and same goes for mascara.

Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara

After a week of trying, I concluded that it won’t replace my love for the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. It’s one of my most favorite mascara of all time. A mascara that adds volume and length to my lashes, what’s that not to love.¬†I just love it! I’d stick with my old fame and honestly I don’t mind playing with a new mascara at all. Did I mention this product is cruelty free! Well, now you know.

I would recommend this to someone who already has a full and thick curly lashes but wants to up on the volume then you’re going to enjoy it.

Tarte Tarteist Lip Color

Moving on is the Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in a travel size packaging. I like it when brands throw in lip product in their holiday set. For someone who has more than 60 lipsticks in my vanity, a travel size is mostly appreciated when it comes to trying out product. Don’t get me wrong, I love lipsticks and lip products in full size and I’m not complaining but once in awhile when brands gives you a sample size, I simply couldn’t ignore.

Tarte Tarteist Color Swatch

I don’t have the name of this particular shade and from my experience, I’m going to say it’s a rosy nude shade if you ask me.

My latest obsession is long wearing lip color and this product give me just that. I agree with the claim of quick dry lip paint. The formula dries up so fast on the lips in a good way and so comfortably lightweight. It’s feather light you wouldn’t notice you’re wearing it. The finishing goes from sheer to full if you like to layer up. A beautiful matte that’s not drying on the lips. Now we’re talking! On that positive note, I urge you to check it out. You won’t regret purchasing this one!

Givenchy Lipstick

I’m not lying when I told you that I’ve that so many lipsticks, right! Here’s another deluxe sample I got with my purchase of more than $25 at Sephora. High end lipstick is my jam and I love collecting them.

Givenchy Lipstick

This is my first acquisition of the¬†Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick line and I’m all floored over this luxury packaging. The black and white tube packaging makes it look so sleek and elegant. I can stare at it the whole day!

Givenchy LIpstick Color Swatch

A stunning shade of Frambroise Velour (315)¬†is described as a cool berry with a natural finish. The color is outstanding and I believe it will work across all skin tones, from light to dark and cool to warm. Everyone can pull off with this shade. You don’t have to be intimidated with the dark shade, it’s surprisingly not as dark as I thought and highly wearable for any occasion. I like that it doesn’t run vampy like some brands I’ve tried in the past. The texture is soft and feels so comfortable on lips. I’m excited to wear this shade over the Fall and Winter!¬†The color is so flattering and helps brighten complexion. Wonderful!!!¬†

Yves St Laurent Radiant Touch

I couldn’t make a favorite without mentioning the Yves Saint Laurent Radiant Touch Perfecting Pen in the shade Luminous Ivory (2). Perfect color for fair to light complexions with yellow undertones.

I don’t remember owning a gold pen highlighter before so this I treasure.

Wand Applicator Yves ST Laurent

I’ve been doing all those all-night blog a thons I’ve been pulling to get this Blogmas weeks off the ground and it’s finally catching up with me. When my hubby pointed out about the huge bags under my eyes, I’ve to do something about these and fast.

According to the company, the pen is a highlighter cream that will help your face ‚Äúcapture eight hours of sleep with the click of a pen.‚ÄĚ It’s not really a concealer per se but rather a illuminator that brightens and make you look more awake.

I love to use this under my eyes, forehead, beside and on the bridge of my nose for brightening purposes. All I want this holiday season is a radiant and brightening look that hides my dark eyes and this pen did just that. I feel like I’m going to love this!

Elf highligting brush

I was very excited with the new Elf Cosmetics Highting Brush, it’s not new new in the market but at least new to me.¬† I’ve a few of their brush collection and¬†I would say they didn’t disappoint me whatsoever. This is beautiful and has become my go to whenever I need to use it for highlighting and for blush. The quality is good and it’s a synthetic fiber brush. It works so well, I love elf brushes. It’s soft but still densely packed enough to actually work. I’d say it has that perfect softeness that still function very well. If you’re in the market for an affordable and yet workable brush, look no further. You need to try this for yourself!

So, that’s everything from last week and right here are products that I’ll be testing out for the upcoming week. All they’re as follows:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, that’s everything that I’ll be testing out for next’s week #BlogmasBagMonday. Make sure you come back to read every Monday for the month of December. Then I’ll have really exciting new series coming out after the New Year. I’ll be doing A Peek Inside My PR BOX. So make sure you follow me on my blog.

As always thanks so much for stopping by and read. Have a wonderful rest of your day! I’ll see you again next week for another Blogmas Bag Monday week 3.

Boe Professional Beauty Advent Calendar|LE

 

Hi everyone! It’s insane that Christmas is in just less than three weeks. I don’t know about you but for me, I like to shop early for friends and family so to avoid all that hustle and bustle of shopping malls. All been said, I actually enjoy shopping at this time of the year. Apart from buying gifts for friends and family, I like buying gifts for myself too.

I stumbled upon this cute 12 days Advent Calendar by Boe Proessional when I was grocery shopping. You know I’m a sucker for cute things so I got it even though I know I don’t really need it. I’ve tons of makeup that I can’t finish using but then … it’s so affordable I can’t turned it down.¬† Long story short, I was too excited so I cheated and open them all to show you guys.

So, let’s get started since it’s going to be a long post and so you might want to get cozy.

Boe Beauty Advent Calendar

A twelve days Advent Calendar makeup goodies by Boe Professional for C$11.23 that’s just a ridiculously insane deal if I may say so.¬†I didn’t have high expectation for product that’s less than $2 but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these products.

Since Boe Beauty is an Australian beauty brand,¬†it’s not a widely known brand to us here and it‚Äôs not that easily available in stores, but I had a chance encounter with it at my local grocery store.¬†It’s an Australian cosmetic brand where you can order your products online exclusively at BigW.

Lip products

First thing first in the advent calendar in no particular orders are the Colour Shine Lipstick and the Lip Shine Gloss. Gorgeous soft pink and mauvy shades that will leave your lips looking pouty and glossy.

Lips color swatches

I really like the colors of these swatches. It’s nice and it got a different texture that’s light and nicely pigmented. I don’t know if you can believe me if I told you that I’ve a lot of lipsticks but I don’t think I’ve pink shade like that. This lipstick gives your lips a sheer and satin-y look. I think this shade will look nice on any skin types. If pink is your color then you’re going to like it.

I notice the lip gloss has a slightly fruity scents and the formula not sticky at all. It feels comfortable and moisturizing on the lips which I really appreciate.

Boe Beauty Bronzer

Next are the Sunkissed Bronzer, Shimmer Shadow and Body Glitter. The packaging is of drugstore plastic material. It’s very light and you could easy throw in your purse and go. The downside is the compact packaging which I find to be a little on the filmsy side. I was so scare it might drop and break but for less than $2 product with consistent formula, I think I can live with that.

Color swatches Boe Beauty

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate how pretty these swatches are? They’re all incredible pigmented. I haven’t wear body glitter for a long while so I’m very excited to give this a try. As for the bronzer, I find it a tad lighter for my skintone but I can wear it as a blush without any problem.¬†I think my favorite product out of these three is the shimmer shadow. It’s so pretty and highly pigmented! This powder shadow looks almost like cream in texture. It blends effortlessly and it makes my eye looks bigger and more popped! I can totally see myself reaching for it this holiday season. I urge you to try them for yourself and see!

Boe Beauty Eye Products

Moving clockwise is the Tinted Eyebrow Gel, Eyeliner, Flirty False Lashes, Khol Pencil and Curling Mascara. You guys might’ve noticed that I adore eyeliners and when I saw that this calendar not only has one but two liners, I was thrilled.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First look at the applicator and packaging of this mascara, it’s pretty basic like any other drugstore brands. I can’t wait to test it out on my straight lashes and report back if it actually works.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Same goes with the falsies. It does look a little intimidating to me at first but I’m all about trying new things for you guys. Frankly, I’ve never wore such a big falsies before so¬†I can tell it’s going to be exciting.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Both liners glide on smoothly and evenly on the lid. The khol pencil stays on much longer than the liquid ones. I’m a huge fan of liquid liner but this khol pencil just speaks to me. I’m quite impressed with the quality and the staying power.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next that I’m going to talk about is the eyebrow gel that’s so amazing. It actually works well in keeping all my fussy brow hair intact while making brow drawing a breeze. I believe you can get this individual product at BigW if you only want this particular eyebrow gel.

Boe Professional

Last but not least, we’ve the Radiant Highlighter and Lip Pencil.¬†

I really like the silicon and creamy feel of this formula. It does gives a smooth layer of highlighter but not those you’d be expecting from high-end brands. It gives you a nice reflection under the light but definitely not that right on your face type of highlighter.

Boe Beauty swatches

I don’t see the results I wanted from the highlighter but if you’re a beginner to makeup. This would be a great place to start.

Did I tell you that I’m been obsessed with the lip pencil! It’s a soft muted fuchsia that’s creamy and smooth in texture. I like how easy this applies on lips.

boe beauty advent calendar

I think this is a great find if you’re new to trying out makeup or on a budget buy. The quality is okay for the price you pay.

I hope you guys enjoyed a little sneak peek of this advent calendar and don’t forget to leave me a comment and let me know what you picked up just recently.

Have you heard or seen this brand in store?

Sharon xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

New Series|#BlogmasBagMonday 1

 

Hey everybody! Welcome to my new series call Blogmas Bag Mondays where I select makeup and skincare products to test out for a full week and check back the following week with my product reviews. This is a great way to give you some good feedback on new beauty products as well as rotate my makeup and skincare collection. This series is going to be for the entire month of December and if you like to see more on this type of post moving forward then don’t forget to comment below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So the last beauty bag monday which I tried consist of a few mix of old products that I’ve talked about in my past blog and some new ones. I’ve the products here and very excited to share my¬† two cents opinion. I’m going to also show you what I pick for this coming week at the end of this post. So, you might want to continue reading till the end.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first product I’ve is the Fruit & Passion Aloe Face Mask.¬†I’ve tried many sheet masks before but this product is amazing. We all know that we’re into the start of a dry winter season and our skin is in the dire mode to absord any moisturize goodness you can find. The good news is that your skin will thank you once you’ve tried this stuff.

The quality of the sheet mask is okay but the after effect is what really impresses me the most. It’s so moisturizing and actually leaves my skin looking naturally healthy and radiant looking the entire day. My skin feels so smooth, soft and brighter. I can fel my face being covered by all this juicy aloe moisture. I’m obsessed and so would you!

acure-overnight-mask.jpg
PR sample

Acure Argan Gardenia Stem Oil Overnight Hydrating Booster Mask is a product I like to wear to delay aging and wrinkles. The scent is amazing and the consistency is just right. Not too runny and not too thick. I’d say it has a rich creamy texture that’s safe and comfortable to wear and go to bed on.

Acure swatch

The formula applies easily on skin and sinks in within a few minutes. It’s not sticky at all so you don’t have to worry about the cream sticking on your pillowcase. It locks in all the moisture till the next morning. I’ve also wear it on top of a night cream but I prefer to wear it alone and especially when I can’t have a full night skincare routine. With colder months approaching, my skin is getting drier so I’ll be reaching for this even more just to get the overnight boost to keep my skin healthy and happy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ultimate Lipstick Set Love & Beauty by Forever 21 is unfortunately not my favorite of the bunch. I personally not a huge fan of scented lipsticks and I’m not sure if I got a bad batch but these lipsticks have an awfully oily and chemically scents that reminds me back of the first time I tried them on. I’m talking about many many moons ago. I forgot why I never wore them after the first test run and the reason is clear to me now. I know that I don’t like the smell at all.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Don’t get me wrong, I like their eyeshadow palette but this just didn’t cut it for me. So, that’s a bummer!

Unlimited Lipstick Swatches by Forever21

On a positive note, you can see how they swatched beautifully and nicely pigmented. I like the creamy texture and the pretty shades, it’s moist and stays on very long. My favorite colors are Fiery Red and followed by Rose.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love & Beauty Eye Shadow with Argan Oil by Forever 21. This palette consists of four neutral shades with three shimmery and one matte shadows. It comes in a transparent plastic packaging with a dual sponge applicator on each side. The main ingredient of this product is the argan oil.

Love & Beauty by Forever21 Swatches
L-R: Shimmery Nude -Shimmery Peach Rose – Shimmery Latte Brown & a Matte Taupe

Here are the color swatching I did on bare arm using my finger. Rich pigmented shadows that are easy to work on. The formula is smooth with a nice color payoff. What you see is what you get. They blend well and it gives you that beautiful natural everyday look for office or you can also tune it up a notch for that smoky eye look. And if you’re looking for natural and organic product, this one is made for you.

#EOTD Love & Beauty by Forever21 .jpg

I think this #EOTD is great for everyday natural look. You can paired it with a primer, bada-ding bada-boom … these shadows will last anything you can throw at them.

Surya Basil Nail Polish Pampas Cat
#PR sample

Surya Brasil Nail Polish in Pampas Cat was sent to me for review¬†a couple of weeks ago.¬†This is my first time trying out this brand and honestly I’m quite impressed with this product.¬†Surya Basil nail polish was launched in 2015 but they started off with their all-natural hair color some 20 years ago. We can see a brand that keeps on evolving by bringing in new and exciting products, naturally.

There are 16 exotic animal nail polish color to choose from. Anyone excited to wear Pink Flamingo to Coral Snake or Blue Peacock? Make your pick for only $12 a bottle.

Pampas Cat brings its tan shade to the Surya Brasil Nail Polish collection. Yay! Their products are made with natural ingredients and eco-friendly.

  • NO¬†Camphor
  • NO¬†DBP
  • NO¬†Formaldehyde

Surya Brasil Nial Polish

I genuinely think that Surya Basil nail polish has great potential given their products are cruelty free and the quality so amazing. I’m in love with this nail color and the packaging. If you like to see how it swatches, I’ve put an instagram post link here. It lasted me for a good one week without any top coat. I’m pleasantly happy with the finishing look and the durability. It’s a winner in my book!¬†If you’re new to Surya Basil, you got to try this!

Drugstore Mini Haul|Aveeno First Impression

 

Hey everyone! The past weekend shopping involves a stop to my local drugstore to pick up a few skincare products to try out for you guys. I was tempted to go all the way out but reminded myself that I’ve way too many skincare products, and I opted for just two products that I actually need right now.

Aveeno Brand Spotlight skincare

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m obsessed with pretty much every Aveeno product new or old. I’m at that age where taking care of my skin is no longer an option but a necessity. I’ve been loving their products since day one of my blogging days and none has yet to disappoint. It’s safe for me to say that Aveeno is an amazing drugstore brand when it comes to being affordable and convenient.

Long story short,¬†I picked up Aveeno Makeup Removing Cleanser and their Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub which I’ve been so excited to try out.

Aveeno tone corrector
#Press Sample

This is the only one that was sent to me previously by some sort of a pr package but the other two items I got them from the drugstore. And it’s the Targeted Tone Corrector to helps even tone and fade the dark spots.¬†I’m thankful to be sent this product and thrilled to try out.

Tone corrector aveeno posivitely radiant

I’d have to say that I’m quite surprised with the formula of this corrector. I was expecting it to be a little thicker in consistency to other products that I’ve tried but this one is¬† just right. It’s a thin cream that dries up fast which is good since you’re supposed to use it in addition to the moisturizer and other makeup stuff. It has a natural and mild scents that’s not irritating nor too overwhelming. I find it pleasant and quite like it to be honest.

It says on the packaging to apply directly to areas with uneven tone and dark spots twice a day before your moisturizer.

There’s a particular uneven skin tone on my left cheek that I want it gone. So, I’m going to continue testing it out and update you guys with the development in another 2-3 weeks.

Aveeno makeup removing cleanser

My current favorite go to Makeup Removing Cleanser has to be the Aveeno Positively Radiant for smooth and soft skin. The soy extract works incredibly well to remove makeup and cleans my skin while keeping it radiant.

makeup removing cleanser aveeno

Trust me, this cleanser is gentle and it cleans all the makeup and residues right away leaving skin smooth and soft. Just look at this insanely glorious foaming happening here. My skin is screaming with joy right now.

For the purpose of this first impression review, I did my makeup early in the morning and then use this makeup remover to cleanse my entire face and it works so well. I’m pleasantly surprised on how effective it cleans and make my skin feels so fresh and not drying at all. My skin feels really good, I mean it feels great!

Don’t take my word for it, you gotta try it. It’s really that good!

Aveeno exfoliating scrub

I was looking for an exfoliator that’s more natural and I really like this daily scrub. The mini beads are quite subtle and gentle that it’s hardly noticeable compares to other brands that I’ve tried in the past. It says on the packaging that it’s for daily exfoliating but I’m going to stick with my routine of 2-3 times a week.

One thing to remember is that this is a exfoliating scrub and not a cleanser so don’t expect it to foam or lather.¬†I’ve had no break outs or dryness while using this. I can immediately notice the difference on my skin tone after I exfoliate and rinsed. My skin looks brighter and feels so smooth. It feels like a layer of protection covering them.

Scrub Aveeno fresh essentials

I love the amazing scents and the mild texture is just so relaxing while leaving my skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth. The scents doesn’t bother me at all because I love a good fresh and clean smell after cleaning. I’m not overly concerned with scented skincare when it comes to all natural ingredients used in making of these products. I’m not telling you this is good or bad, you’ve to decide it for yourself. All I’m saying is that it has a¬† fragrance, a little on the strong side so if you’re sensitive to that then this may not be for you. But if you’re like me and love a nice scented southernwood plants than you’re going to like this one.

This really met all my expectations and I’m excited to try more stuff from Aveeno. You can find all the products I mentioned here at your local drugstores or nearby Walmart.

Have you tried any of Aveeno’s product yet? What are some of your favorites? Leave me a comment and tell me down below!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. I hope you find this post helpful and until next time, stay beautiful.

P.s. Stay tuned to the new series of Blogmas Bag Monday coming up soon!
