BECCA Glow On The Go – Hit or Miss!

 

Hey guys! I’m super excited to bring you my take on this Becca Glow On The Go products that I’ve been testing and have been reaching out over this summer. You guys know that I’m trying out products constantly so if something goes in this post you know it got to be good.

So you asked: What is truly worth that kind of price for a high end product?

I thought long and hard and I find this Becca Glow On The Go to be the best fit for today’s post. I wanted it to be a thing that has the greatest probablity to working across the board no matter who you are. I wanted it to be something universal if you know what I mean.

I’m going to kick this off with the Shimmering Skin Perfector Sportlight Opal.¬†Available in seven shades at any Sephora near you.

I’m all about natural glow looking skin and when I was first introduced to this highlighter, I was over the moon. This may look like a typical tube highlighter but what this is going to do is to give your skin so much more.

It comes in a tube packaging with a doe foot applicator. What I love most is the consistency of this formula. It’s neither too runny nor too thick in texture. I find it to be so easy to blend and spread on areas of my skin I want highlighted.

The shade Opal is described as golden peach pearl which is so pretty. It’s says “to be the best selling and most flattering on all skin tones.” I’m very pleased with the subtle and natural looking finish that Becca gives. A beautiful glow to the skin that’s not too shimmery at all.

Even though these are small size it still has plenty of product. This set is a great way to try BECCA‚Äôs highlighters without committing to a full-sized one.¬†But in my case, I’m running to the nearest Sephora to grab a full size.

Next is the Becca Shimmering Perfector Pressed in Opal is a finely milled illuminator that keeps skin looking incredibly lovely and luminous. Th color Opal can be described as a light-medium golden champagne pressed highlighter with a frosted finish. The formula is buttery soft and it glides on like a dream.

I’m a NC25 so this shade is a good fit for my skin tone. It gives a lovely touch of warmth that I really appreciate. I like to apply using my fingers instead of a brush when it comes to highlighter. I find it works best with fingers but it might just be me. You can use whichever method that floats your boat.

I really like this so if you’re just looking around for a natural glowing highlighter from a high end brand then definitely give it a try. If you know any dupes for a pressed highlighter, definitely comment below. I love to try it out.

Between the two highlighters, I honestly say that I’m loving the liquid ones better than the other. I like how the liquid highlighter applies and how effortless to buff out by tapping with fingers. The finishing look is phenomenal. I’m loving the natural looking glow that the Skin Spotlight gives.

Becca has the best highlighter and I couldn’t rave more except that you try it. I highly recommend Becca because they’re cruelty free!

I hope you enjoy my recommendation and find this post to be helpful for you guys. Thank you so much for taking your time to read. I really appreciate it.

High-end Makeup – Beauty Haul

 

Hey lovelies,

This week, I love to talk and share with you some of the makeup products that I picked up¬†from several stores during my hunt for more beauty products. You will see that in this post, I’m combining beauty haul with my review on the products which I picked this week. This is a new style format for me to share my experience hauling all the beauty product while also sharing my opinion by doing a review on each products on the same post.

beauty haul mac

I have here a Becca Sheer Sick Foundation, Mac Matte Lipsticks in Saint Germain and Fanfare, Korres Volcanic Minerals Mascara and lastly the Ecotools Brushes.

mac matte lipsticks

Did I tell you lately that after I did my first review on the Mac Matte Lipstick (Lady Danger), I was head over toes with the amazing pigment and its long wear?. Oh my gosh! you really have to get one of these, dear!

Both are really gorgeous colors which I loved. Well, I’m not really a pink lady so pale pink is not my cup of tea but¬†since I’m planning to keep on to my beauty resolution,¬†I intend¬†to dare wear it :[

Are you curious which shades are those? The pale pink is Saint Germain while the other is Fanfare. Each net wt: 0.1 oz. Saint Germain has been a¬†top seller and described as a “light cool pink”. I see that it’s more of a pale pink with blue base. Look at how opaque coverage this formula is? It also has some scent of vanilla but not overwhelming. I wore this for almost half the day. Yes, it looks a bit chalky as the wears goes on, as the sheen goes away faster than the color does. If you like, apply a touch of Saint Germain Lipglass even “Pink Panther” will indulge.

Next is the Fanfare which has coral-y tone. It’s pearly¬†finish which is pretty. Nothing to complain about on the pigment category and it has a lovely nude color which I love. I can practically wear it anytime of the day.

Repurchase: Definitely! These lipsticks are definitely a winner in my books.

becca sheer stick foundation

Becca Sheer Stick Foundation with SPF 30+ in Treacle (Net wt: 0.3 oz).¬†Available in 30¬†impressive neutral¬†shades for light skin to dark skin and¬†somewhere in¬†between. ¬†There’s a big¬†chance that one of these colors will¬†work for you. Check out at Becca, Sephora, Amazon¬†and¬†Ulta.

This is my first time picking up Becca foundation and I just found out that this shade is leaning to a dark tone. I picked this at¬†Winners (a Canadian retail chain) for a good price tag. The disappointing part is “no testing allowed”¬†ūüė¶¬†I’m like argh …. so¬†frustrating sometimes. But that’s their store’s policy and have to abide to it. Most of you might know that I’m always curious to try products be it old or now and how it¬†fairs. so I wouldn’t mind going ahead to¬†get¬†this¬†foundation¬†ūüôā More so to share my experience with you.

Oh wow!!! just look at this beauty. The color swatch and its pigmentation is absolutely amazing. It’s so creamy and once the wax content warms up to skin temperature it’s¬†sets to a satin cream finish. This stick foundation¬†blends incredibly well and I just love the smooth and soft texture. It¬†also has wonderful medium coverage and can be sheered out or to more¬†opaque if needed.¬†The best part is that this foundation’s sunscreen of SPF 30+ which is super awesome. Although it has a broad spectrum¬†sun protection on its own.¬†you will need to¬†apply the¬†foundation liberally and evenly in order to get the stated level of protection.

Repurchase: Absolutely! Will pick a lighter shade for my skintone.

mascara review korres

I also picked up this nice looking mascara by Korres from Winners. It’s a Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara in 02 Obsidian Black (Net wt: 0.27 fl oz). Price $20.00 at Korres.ca. This pigment rich mineral blends derived from volcanic soil. With¬†every lash coats are smudge-proof. It doesn’t clump or smears under eyes.

I¬†wore it early yesterday morning for¬†my¬†review and boy am I glad that I didn’t ended up¬†with a full on raccoon eyes with this mascara :). It’s a long wearing durability for 8-9 hours. I wore them the whole day and my lashes still looks pretty and it didn’t budge. I just washed them while I was cleansing my face with Tony Molly face cleanser and the mascara comes¬†out¬†effortlessly.

It comes with a nice clump free tapered brush. I’m happy¬†with Korres and¬†will sure be checking out more on their skincare products for review.

Repurchase: Without a doubt!

ecotools brushes

Ecotools Bamboo 4 piece brush set. I comes with a concealer brush, a mineral powder brush, a mini kabuki and eye shading¬†brush. A lovely set for mineral makeup. I love brush material from bamboo because it supposedly last for a long time. It’s¬†an earth friendly set and join others with 1% for he Planet.

I haven’t tried these brushes yet but I know that¬†I love the feel of these brushes. ¬†It feels so soft and easy to bring for travelling. They’re available at Wal-mart and Ulta.

Repurchase: Not certain! Haven’t¬†yet tested till perfection.

So, that’s my take on the¬†reviews and beauty haul for this week. Until next time, thank you very much for reading.

Let me know what you think of this new style format? Your comment is important to me ūüôā
