Rediscovered Beauty Products

 

Hey guys!¬†Today I want to show you something excited while I was clearing up my makeup stash drawers. I don’t know about you but February always make me¬†feel optimistic and full of energy to do something, anything fun. If you know about the¬†folklore story about groundhog day then that’s basically how I look forward for spring.

Accordingly to Global¬†news, “Canada‚Äôs celebrity groundhogs have ‚Äúpredicted‚ÄĚ an early spring after officials declared the pudgy prognosticators did not see their shadows. If the groundhog doesn‚Äôt see its shadow, then tradition says spring is on the way!” Woohoo!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As I was doing my early spring cleaning, I stumbled upon these makeup products that were shoveled to the deepest end of my makeup drawer. It’s insane to find back beauty products that¬†I used to wear a while ago and then totally forgotten about them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got two of the Velvets Eyeshadow by Essence Cosmetics in Smooth Caramel and Taupe Secret. The image on the right is their Super Soft Eyeshadow pot in Keep Calm and Berry On.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really adore the packaging of the Velvets eyeshadows. I’ve two of the nine shades out there and I can’t wait to get my hands on¬†more colors for Spring.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s the color swatches I did with one swipe of shadow directly from the pan to my naked arm. These are some nice neutral shades for everyday wear. The textures are very soft and nicely pigmented. I created an #EOTD look which I shared on my Instagram.

It blends smoothly¬†on the lids. The only downside¬†I find about¬†this berry shadow¬†is that¬†the color payoff¬†is so much better on the eyes than on swatch. It applies best with eyeshadow brush instead of fingers. On a¬†positive note, I didn’t see any creasing or fall out from these shadows which is awesome. For only CAD$2.49 you’ll get a good quality and value for money drugstore products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For being a super cheap product, I’m actually pretty impressed with this. The coverage is decent and¬†it blends in well with my skin and I look significantly better honestly.

Elf Cosmetics Concealer is available at any Walmart stores.¬†The shade I have is in Light Beige. It’s a nice color match for my skin tone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I remember now how I used to reach for it. I really enjoy how easy the doe foot applicator work. I applied them on my under eyes, the bridge of my nose and forehead. It gives a good coverage on my skin without looking cakey.¬†Bye bye to my dark under eye circles. This is the product which I know I’ll be reaching for.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another product I found in my stash is the BH Cosmetics Flawless Brow Highlighter.¬† I must have tried it a while ago to write a review and it completely slipped off my mind until a couple of days ago. I start¬†wearing it and I must say, I’m quite impressed with the results.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Matte

This is a duo ended pencil with a matte finish on one end and a shimmery one on the other. A double-ended matte and shimmer highlighter for your brows. Use the matte side for a soft, subtle highlight or the shimmer side for an added glow.

I also use this matte highlighter for under¬†my brow bones to clean any access from any¬†brow products besides just as a highlighter. This product is creamy and soft. You wouldn’t believe me if I say that it glides like a dream. So smooth, so blendable. I’m loving it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Shimmer

They’re very easy to use or apply especially when I use the shimmery ones for my inner corner. It works wonder!

Not convince! You got to try this yourself. I know you’re going to like it as much as I did. Maybe, I say maybe this post will make you want to start your spring cleaning too. who knows you might rediscovered something in your stash too.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you all again on my next post. Stay tuned for more popped up makeup products which I’m so excited to show you guys. Bye!

Sharon xoxo

Paula’s Choice & Acure Collaboration

 

Hey guys! Sometimes you find a beauty¬†brand that gives you serious lust, and you’re just desperate to try them. Does that ever happened to you? And today is when my dream comes true. I was given the opportunity to do a collaboration with Paula’s Choice and Acure. So, thank you!

Oh my gosh! I was super excited beyond imagination. The coolest thing to happened before the end of 2016. Don’t you think!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*press samples

I received these products in my mail a while ago and I’ve been testing them diligently over the past month. When it comes to skincare, I love to give enough time to test them out before I share¬†my thoughts and opinions.

Products I got in the package is Paula’s Choice Skincare Radiance Renewal Mask, Resist Brightening Essence and last but not least the magical Wonderfluff Argan Overnight Hydrating Booster Mask by Acure.¬†These are all full size sample products.

A short summary of my skin type. I’ve combination to dry skin typed and lately I’ve been having good skin days. Woohoo!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ll start with this renewal mask first. This product is selling for $36.00 in full size.

Look more radiant –¬†The first step to having¬†a hydrated beauty is to take good care of your skin.¬†Removing your makeup before going to sleep at night is essential for removing impurities that can clog pores, and dull the skins natural radiance.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Having said that, applying this renewal mask once a week after your evening skincare routine is utmost important for a better result to having a radiant and better looking skin tone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I use a generous amount of this product and apply them as if applying moisturizer all over the face. It feels so good on skin and absorbed nicely leaving skin¬†a slightly dewy finish. It has a nice scents to it which wasn’t overpowering at all. And the best thing is, you don’t have to rinse them.

So, it means that this product is still working to improves and restores your skin tone while you’re taking your beauty sleep. I’ve been wearing this for a couple of times since I got it and there’s some apparent difference to my skin that¬†I noticed. My skin feels so much softer and a patch of¬†the dull skin on my left cheek had disappeared. I’m quite impressed with the results and glad that it’s for all skin types.

I’ll definitely continue to use until to the very last drop.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on is their Resist Brightening Essence which I’m using again today as I blog. With the dry winter air being so¬†unforgiving, I know my skin is going to suffer from it. Is there anything better than having an essence to help REVITALIZE¬†dull complexion!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This product is a little pricey standing at $42.00 a bottle but for something that actually works, then I’m game.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the applicator. It’s elegant and dispenses the proper amount I need. The formula of the essence is lightweight (liquid consistency) and may I say, a little goes a long way. The amount in this bottle is going to last me for a while. In terms of value, I think this is a good investment for your money.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last product I wanted to mention is this Acure Organics Overnight Hydrating Booster Mask. This product is cruelty, vegan and paraban free. It’s also organic in case you want to know!

I love love love the scents of argan oil and gardenia. It really smells amazing! Ahhh!!! So aromatherapic. Comes in a tube packaging with a net wt: 1.4 fl oz for $19.99.

PC076869.JPG

As I’ve been on the market for a good cream to fight wrinkles is an understatement. I was super excited when I received this with the other beauty masks. This product is particularly targeting on wrinkles and for all skin types.

I’ve been wearing this every single night except when I was testing on the renewal mask before going to bed after I put on my night cream and I’m satisfied with how smooth and soft my skin feels. I can’t say if it knock out wrinkles since mine aren’t visible enough but just the fact that it’s hydrating is what my skin needs for now.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Well, I didn’t have a visible wrinkles but I like to prevent and delay this wrinkle situation as I aged.

Overall, I’m impressed with these products and definitely going to continue to use them.

Nearly NAKED Foundation by Revlon

 

Welcome back to Throwback Thursday! An achieve post if you missed on this one. Hope you’d enjoyed reading it. Have a great rest of the week! xoxo

Hey Sharonoox

Hey lovelies,

I wanted to share this Revlon Nearly Naked foundation review with you guys and are excited to jump in immediately.

revlon nearly naked

The shade I picked for this Nearly Naked Makeup is in 230 Nutmeg with net wt: 1 fl oz. It has a good selection of color ranges available for a drugstore brand. I got this from Wal-mart but it’s available at Target, Ulta and local drugstores too.

It is lightweight and has good decent coverage. I notice that the formula is a little runny. This formula is buildable and the color match is spot on.

I’m in love with this Nearly Naked foundation. It gives my skin a happy and healthy glow. When apply on skin you won’t feel the foundation because it’s weightless as if are nearly naked. Skin doesn’t feel heavy or cakey. I will recommend this to my friends who has drier skin type since…

Hi guys!

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*Press Samples

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

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

So let’s get started.

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

  1. Pure Renewal Shampoo
  2. Pure Renewal Conditioner
  3. Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion
  4. Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion
  5. Stress Relief Body Wash

  9. Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne
  10. Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Spot Gel
  11. Neutrogena All in One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

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

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

Sharon xoxo

Drugstore Cruelty Free Makeup Haul – E.L.F. Hit & Misses

 

Hi guys, today I’ve a few drugstore cruelty free makeup haul for you. I purchased all these stuff and then I said oh!!! it’s time to do a haul and I’m freaking excited! Really, really excited!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There’s quite bit of products I have picked up from Walmart. Yes, aren’t they’re gorgeous! Since the day our Walmart has E.L.F.Cosmetics I’ve been insanely obsessed to get all their stuff. It’s so fun to do a haul. I got many requests to do the E.L.F. makeup products so this is so exciting.

So, I’m going to go ahead and jump into everything.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shade from (L-R) : Ain’t That Sweet (pinkish), Wine Pot (burgundy wine) and Crush Chic (gold bronze).

Look how cute these smudge pots are. It comes in a clear transparent glass pot and this is¬†so cool. I’m loving it now and I’m going to continue trying them.

elf-smudge-pot

These are some gorgeous E.L.F. Smudge Pots. Absolutely stunning! Look how pigmented they are. The first moment I opened up this Crush Chic, I knew I was going to love it. It’s so so pretty!

I love¬†the shades and the formula. Crush Chic would be perfect for the coming holiday. Wine Pot is amazing for fall and Ain’t That Sweet for everyday eye makeup. It’s like they got us covered the whole year round.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next thing I want to talk about is this Blush in Mellow Mauve.

When showing it on picture is gorgeous but when in person it’s amazing. There’s a little of shimmer in it but I’m going to try it out for a little more before I share my thoughts and opinion on this one. I’m going with¬†the thought of going back and forth with this blush. Everything here is so smooth and pigmented. I just can’t get enough of this. One apparent thing I notice¬†is that it allows you to layer for more depth¬†without looking cakey or clown-y.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on to the next item I got is the Perfect Finish HD Powder in a compact packaging. It comes in a duo layered tier with a decent mirror on the cover. I would recommend this one if you don’t like the loose powder format. The texture is very lightweight and super soft on touched.¬†I can tell you that I like it but not love. I think I’m going to use it a little bit more before I give my final thoughts.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next thing I want to talk about is this beautiful packaging E.L.F. High Definition Powder in Sheer.  This is studio line product on E.L.F.

It doesn’t necessary have the largest impact when you put if on your face. It really need to take time to test it out for a longer time.

This is the packaging. It’s a matte black old box. It’s a square shape¬†with twist off top. This is a everyday sheer¬†highlighter. These are pigmented and so soft. Very lightweight. It’s intended to be used as finishing powder basically and that’s how I’ve been using it. I want it to be clear it’s not a shimmery shinny product. It’s like a soft natural finish.

I prefer to use a big fluffy powder brush to apply, but sometimes use the puff that comes with it to pat on areas that need extra attention. My¬†only complain is the packaging. It gets very messy after you lift up the sticker. The plastic sifter will get messy. ¬†If¬†you’re not super careful there will be powder EVERYWHERE. I personally is not a big fan of this honestly. It’s so messy and wasteful. I’m just being honest!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next is this gorgeous Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette by E.l.f Cosmetics. You guys know that I’m obsessed with eyeshadow palettes and you know that I’ll keep on going back to get more palettes every time I see them. I seriously need someone has to chain me down (jk). I don’t I’ll ever stop buying eyeshadow palettes ever. I love all the shades and this Mad for Matte was screaming my name.

eyeshadow-swatches

If you’re in the market for an affordable and good quality eyeshadow palette, I highly recommend this. It housed 10 amazing neutral matte shadows that suits any skin color. If you’re a beginner to makeup, this palette is a must have. It’s nicely pigmented and it long wearing. The shadows are true to its color and a little goes a long way. The packaging is slim and sleek. Love it!

This is it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now I’m going to talk about something I don’t really liked. And it’s the Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California. This is unfortunately a miss because the formula is not long lasting and it takes a lot of work to blend. It’s also very dry and packed with metallic powder with fall out. I just wanted to try them out for you guys but I was having difficulty to apply them on my lids.

So instead, I did some swatches as shown below- I picked the products using¬†my fingers and these are done with a single swipe directly from the pan to my bare hand. They’re insanely shimmery and metallic¬†looking finishing. The pigmentation looks decent unless you use it wet. I tried using them dry which¬†doesn’t show up anything. I really like the shades in the palette but this is just a miss for me.

baked eyeshadow .jpg

I really want to like it but nope this isn’t working for me.

So, that’s all for my haul today. I think it’s safe to say that we all agree that Elf prices just can’t be beat. It’s so difficult to find the balance between quality and price. You know what I’m saying!¬†You got to give some credit to Elf, they’re always creating new things.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

I really hope you enjoyed reading this post and I can’t wait to see you again on the next one. Bye!

Question Tuesday – Best Brands for Eyeshadows

 

Hi guys, this week’s Question Tuesday is going to be a little bit different and hopefully, if I keep getting questions from you all, we can actually do this on a weekly basis. So, your participation is very important. All you have to do is to leave a question in the comment section and I’ll have it featured on my Question Tuesday.

So, let’s move in to the question.

Question by reader: Could you tell me what are some of the best brands for eye shadows that will still offer a great quality product?

Answer: There are many inexpensive eyeshadow brands out there that will work amazingly for you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the first eyeshadow that comes to¬†mind is the Wet n Wild Beauty Trio Eyeshadow Palette for instance. The shade I got is in 380B Walking on Eggshells. They’ve a nice range of color palette to choose from. They’re richly pigmented and very long lasting.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another brand I really love¬†is the Milani¬†Everyday Eyes Palette in Earthy Elements. You get a gorgeous neutral shades and you can wear it for day to evening look. This palette is very versatile and it has amazing pigmentation. And if you want a pigmented set for a great smokey eye, check out the 6-color kit in Earthly Elements. They’ve other color¬†palette selection to choose. So, if you’re willing to shell out between 3 and 4 bucks for more shadow choices, Milani is a great option.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is this NYC New York Lovatics by Demi Eyeshadow Palette in Natural. In this palette you get 12 color shadows from¬†light to black. There are a good amount¬†of matte shadows in this palette with shimmery and metallic ones. If you’re in the market for a budget makeup buy, then this is a nice palette to have.

I hope this helped those who asked the questions, and those of you who are reading this! If you’ve other recommendation, don’t forget to mention it in the comment section.

Thank you for stopping by to read. I hope you enjoyed this post and find it interesting.

Have a wonderful day!

Blogtober* SKIN18 Korean Facial Treatment Favorites

 

Hey everybody! Welcome back to my blog ūüôā Today I’ve super super excited post to show you¬†all¬†my new blog post of the¬†face masks I’ve posted on my Instagram feed not too long ago.

So today, I’m going to talk about facial mask favorites. It’s the products I got from SKIN 18 to do this blog post. This is my second time doing a collaboration with Skin 18 and I’ve been quite impressed with¬†their initial samples and so when they contacted me the second time, I couldn’t say no. Reason because I really like it. You guys know that I only work with brands that I’m confident¬†with.

These are sheet¬†masks that I personally used the find it work and make a noticeable difference straight away.¬†I’m quite impressed with all the products and I’m going to talk to you all today.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*Press Samples

So, here are the sheet masks, nose strips, moisturizing pack and modeling cup pack.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First time trying this Modeling Cup Pack by Inoface Cosmetics. This is a Korean brand and this is a unique face mask I would say. I haven’t tried any powder mask before and this cup pack intrigued me to try it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a cute sturdy plastic cup¬†packaging like so and inside it you’ll find a spatula for mixing the mold. I’m not a big fan of product that comes in powder form, reason being I find it a little cumbersome and messy. But this one is so easy to mix into a batter which¬†is good news.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To make your own mask. All you have to do is follow this simple step. Just add water (1/2 of the products) into the cup and then mix¬†it ¬†well with the spatula provided. Once you’ve mixed it evenly, apply this sticky modeling pack rapidly¬†on the face. After 15-20 minutes, peel off the mask/pack and clear up the residues.¬†I like applying serum and moisturizer after my mask treatment. It feels so good and refreshing.

You can also recycle the cup. That’s also good for the environment!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on are the sheet mask by Luxe and their nose strips. I really love this brand after testing their eye strips. Their products smells amazing and they don’t cause skin irritation whatsoever. I’ve sensitive skin and when I had this sheet mask on, I didn’t noticed any tingling or discomfort at all. The whole time, my skin just absorbs the goodness of this collagen essence in. It feels so rejuvenating and just one word to describe it :¬†AMAZING!

I put this at night and the next morning my skin feels so soft, so plump and fresh. It definitely calms my skin down.

Behind the packaging, you’ll find a bilingual instructions on how to apply and the ingredients used. I highly recommend it.

Next I’m going to talk about the nose strip and the nose cleansing strip. Both amazing products. I always thought I don’t have much whiteheads on my nose until it was revealed to me how gross and scary it looks when I peeled the nose strip off. You know right, whiteheads are very hard to spot. And Oh my gosh! When the truth was¬†revealed to me and seeing all my whiteheads stuck on the strip, I know right away that¬†I must have¬†this¬†in my life. Seriously!

Both  of these nose strips smells amazing. The nose strip really smells like mugwort plant and lemon tea smells so refreshing. I also tried the lemon tea cleansing strip a few days ago and I really like it. It works wonderfully as the mugwort strip except with different scents. Overall, yay!

So if you’re in the market for nose strips, I suggest you check out this one. They’re decent in price¬†and it works great.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since the weather is getting colder and drier my skin has been screaming for moisturizer all these times. Normally, I would slap a handful of my Lancome Bientfait day cream to keep my skin moisturize. You know, I’ve dry-combination skin and this Aloe Soothing Mask is a must have in each and everyone’s drawer. Teenagers under 18 years – you might want to skip this and go to the next product.

As it says on the packaging, this is an Anti-Aging Aloe Soothing Mask and they weren’t kidding when they said that. This is more for hydrating your skin than anything else.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It feels soothing, cooling and relaxing when you first applied the sheet mask on. But before the mask, follow the instruction to as Step 1 which is the anti-aging ampule. I applied it on and gently massaged them in. Then I have the sheet mask on for 25-30 minutes.

Once I took off the sheet mask, I usually like to rub the formula in by massaging it in circular motion. Then, I go ahead to step 3 by applying the night cream to really set my skin with this awesome moisturizer.

I find this really good. I know for a fact that aloe vera gel is good for helping skin healing,¬†scars, burnt and many other usages. So, when you’ve a packet full of aloe vera on a sheet mask, I tell you, it’s a must try.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next that I’ve been loving is this Cucumber Essence Mask Sheet by Beauty Friends. If you’re looking for a smooth and brightening mask for your complexion then this one¬†is for you. It smells very cleansing and cucumber-y, if that make any sense. Conclusion is that I like that it leaves my skin feeling fresh.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Lastly, this is one of my favorite. This Moisturizing Cucumber Pack is amaze-ball. It’s really kind of¬†¬†moisturizing and nourishing to your skin. It feels so moisturizing and when you massage it in, it’s gel type watery.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, that’s it for today’s favorites. I hope you like this type of post. Let me know if you want to read any high-low favorites blog post in this kind of line. Let me know in the comment section below any suggestions what you want me¬†do next.

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

I really hope you enjoyed reading this post and I can’t wait to see you again on the next one. Bye!

Thanks so much.

Milani Mini Beauty Haul + Trial

 

Hey guys! I got several products by Milani from Walmart and I thought to just do a mini beauty haul because this is genuinely exciting to me.

I’m going to start with the blushes since this is the most raved and hyped product in the beauty world even now.

Milani’s Baked Blush in LUMINOSO [Luminous Peachy Pink (Vegan)] as many YouTubers claim is an exact dupe for the infamous the Balm¬†Coralista for a fraction of the cost and I have to agree.

I got the first blush in Corallina last summer and since I heard so many youtubers talking about it, and was curious to try out their blush in Luminoso. It just a perfect oral shade for summer.

I’ve tried the Corallina blush before (I’ll put¬†a link here) and really like it. They’re very pigmented and easy to blend and buff them out. A little goes a long way and really like the formula of baked blush. True to color and I just love how intense the application was without going overboard.

It has cute packaging and with a blush applicator on the second tier including a good size mirror.

It’s kinda dry but smooth texture. Almost feels like powder blush but more intense color, if that makes sense. I love blushes that’s dewy and looks glowy and natural It’s also buildable to apply. The color is coral-ly – peach and a little glowy which I really like. I’ve decided to kinda play around more¬†with that.

Up-closed picture. To me blush is my summer kinda thing. Tell me if you feel the same in the comment below. This is the blush I’ve been looking for.

Color swatch of the gorgeous of Luminoso in peachy shade and it’s vegan too. I find that this blush is absolutely fabulous and you cannot beat the price for the quality of this product. This blush lasts and I can’t say enough great things about this blush. The color luminoso gives my skin an amazing glow. Yay!

Here is the comparison shade I got side by side. On my left is the Corallina and Luminoso. I really think it would work on every skin color/shade.

Well, I love Milani for what¬†I’ve tried and so I got to pick up a few other products to show you guys. I’ve this lipstick and it’s in the shade¬†Uptown Mauve. It’s a red mauve¬†shade that’s looks go pretty. I really love the formula and this color especially for evening wear.

I love Milani Color Statement Lipstick because I love how long lasting it is and when I saw the intense shade I’m like come to mama! It smells really nice and super easy to apply.

And honestly, this is one swipe and just see how opaque it is. I will definitely get more of this. It feels very comfortable and very moisturizing.

This is the last 2 products that I got. It’s their Lip Liner in 04 All Natural and 08 Fuchsia. So this is a cool favorite and it’s the All Natural color lip liner. It’s a nice matte lip liner and this is the right one. Perfect one lip liner.

A beautiful color Fuchsia that is out of the world. I picked this to wear underneath my Uptown Mauve lipstick since I don’t have this shade. Well, you know I love a good lip liner!

Goes on so smooth and the color you see is the color you get, huge fan!!

I’m feeling excited with summer and I’m just going to wrap up this post. So, that’s it for today’s mini haul and hope you guys have enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day. I hope to see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Hi guys! Today I’m going to share with you a product that I’ve been reaching for the past many weeks.

BB Face Cream

I know that I’ve been neglecting on some face cream review this year. Today, I want to make out with you guys with this BB Cream which had been¬†in the back burner since last summer. If you like to read over a full review on my¬†previous Japan Makeup Haul,¬†here is the¬†link.

Seriously, just one tube of this foundation is all I need when my skin are the happiest, meaning when I have a good skin days.

Bilingual ingredients and product feature. I don’t know any of you read Korean, but sadly I don’t.¬†I¬†welcome this bilingual packaging with open arms, I honestly think it’s¬†helpful and brilliant.

Korean BB Cream makes it to the American market and has been growing in popularity. I know you want to see up close the texture and consistency of this product. Here is the color swatch in Natural Beige.

It blends like a dream and very lightweight feeling. Comfortable on skin and natural looking. This shade just blend in beautifully into my hand. I didn’t see it been cakey or powdery. It smells amazing, not to mention moisturizing.

Leaving my skin feeling smooth and natural. I definitely love this BB cream.

This product is for Daiso Japan and Made In Korea. If you see this BB face cream in your local Daiso, I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a sheer coverage BB cream.¬†So this is a fantastic product if you love this BB cream!

Hope that helps a bit!

What do you think beauty products you recently pick up from Daiso? Can you find the same BB cream in your local Daiso? I would absolutely love to hear from you, either way!

Also, I will be reviewing many of makeup products in the weeks to come, so please stay tuned for more reviews!

Alrighty, so that’s pretty much it for today’s post! Hope to see on the next one.

Thank you for taking the time to read. .
