Let Talk Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette Photos, Swatches

 

Fall is one of the season I most look forward to in the entire year. So I was excited to pick up this palette at Marshalls. I love shopping at Marshalls and Home Sense simply for their great brands and affordable prices. From clothing range to handbags and shoes to furniture, home decors and so much more. I always find myself finding stuffs that makes my heart skip a beat and that’s so fun!

#Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette

You know I’m obsessed with eyeshadow palettes and are always on the hunt for quality and affordable beauty options.¬†So here is a fun eyeshadows for Fall! I love each and every color in this palette. Great color selection for warm toned enthusiast.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are mind-blowing shadows! Richly pigmented and easy to blend. In case you’re wondering, be assured that Smashbox product is cruelty free!

Each palette has eight shades. You got four shimmers and four mattes eyeshadows. So there’s a lot of combination that you can use for different eye looks.

Here’s the name of the shadows in Ablaze with shades in rich red clay and hot terracotta. This palette captures the warmth of the desert in a range of sun-drenched shades that¬† are great for your everyday and Fall looks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was sold the moment I open the cover. It’s like opening a pandora box (in a good way). My heart skip a beat!!! I just don’t believe my eyes of what I’ve put myself into. I’m obsessed with every shade in this palette. It’s versatile and you can create so many different look with them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The packaging is slim and sleek. It comes with a huge mirror and a good size shadow pans. I like the magnetic close lid

Why I love this palette, it’s because none of these shadows are repeats. The quality of the formula is amazing. They’re rich in pigment, soft and beyond blendable texture. These shadows are so pigmented that with just a light swipe you get a lot of product on the brush but also powdery if that make any sense. I like to tap off the excess shadows before applying it directly onto my eyes.

Color swatches
Color swatches from L-R: Siesta РNirvana РDelirious РTorch РThrowback РDark Horse 

Relaxed – a soft peach with warm undertones and a matte finish

Moccasin – a soft light-medium copper with frosted finish

Here’s a closeup color swatches of the bottom roll eyeshadows:¬†¬†

Siesta – a muted medium-dark rosy copper with a pearly sheen finish

Nirvana –¬†is a medium-dark reddish berry with warm undertones and a matte finish

Delirious – a medium-dark coppery brown and a frosted sheen

Torch – is a medium-dark orange with golden shimmer

Throwback – a muted dark brown with warm and red undertones and a matte finish

Dark Horse – a deep earth brown a matte finish

I like that this particular palette had both shimmer and matte finishes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I first prep my eyes with I love stage eyeshadow base by Essence. Then my next step is to use Moccasin from lash line to natural crease. Next I apply Throwback to diffuse the crease. They’re very pigmented so you might want to tap off of the excess. I then sweep Relaxed onto the brow bone. To softly define the bottom lash line, I use Throwback. For photo finish look to make my eyes look more pop, I apply Siesta on the inner corner of my eye. To finish of the look, I’m using my favorite Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner in Black.¬† ¬†

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It blends out so nicely and¬†I’m loving this look. I can’t wait to see what else I can create out of this palette.

Smashbox

I could do multiple look with this palette which I really appreciate and love that it’s a pocket size which is great for travelling. Would definitely go back for more.¬† I really can’t say enough good things about Smashbox. I’m so happy that I got to try this out. I’m really impressed with the pigmentation and the blending.¬†A palette this amazing, I highly recommend it!

Hey everyone! Thank you so much to stop by my blog post. With the New Year we tossed for good health, joy and for some a new blank pages on the book for us to fill. In today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you another new content that I’ve been so excited to share them with your guys here in my blog.

I’ve just finished working on Part 2 on this series and had so much writing about it. If you’re interested to read more of this type of posts, don’t forget to hit that subscription button on the right sidebar.

Even if it’s clear how much you’ve help to protect my skin to continuously look and feel youthful, it certainly won’t hurt to put that feeling into words.¬†Yes, it may sounds cheesy for you but I’m going to do it anyways. Are you ready for it? Well then, let’s do this!

First off I like thank the pr company for sending this package to my mail box. I’ve always love beauty products by Sothys Paris and I’m truly lucky to have this opportunity to do a review on their newest Youth Cream skincare line.

SothysYouthCream

I can’t stress enough how important it is to take good care of your skin and making sure to protect your face with good quality formula to your skincare routine is a vital step.

Swatch

What I love about this product is the rich and creamy texture. Apart from that, this stuff is fragrance free, so it feels super gentle and kind on the skin which I really appreciate. The formula is so soft and smooth in consistency as if you’re wearing silk on your skin.

Creamytexture

The formula is infused with two botanical active ingredients which helps fight against oxidative stress and signs of chronological ageing. I’ve been using it for more than a month and have been loving it so much. You got to try it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Micellar Cleansing Waters are products I use on a daily basis. I like using cleansing water because it’s not too harsh for my skin. You see, winter weather makes my skin ultra dry so I try not to add unnecessary cream products that makes it worst. On a contrary, I seek anything hydrating for my thirsty skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can either use this stuff with a cotton pad or muslin cloth and then go ahead to remove all the makeup residues off the face.

MicellarWater

You light up my life with this magic formula. My skin doesn’t feel overly dry with the micellar water.

Sothys Paris Youth Cream
*Deluxe Samples

I can wear you all day. You must noticed that I’m obsessed with every single Sothys products that exist. I’m going to talk about this two deluxe sample products that I was excited to try them out as well.

Restructuring Youth Cream –¬†to restore, fight¬†against visible signs of ageing: wrinkles, even deep ones and skin slackening.

Redentifying Youth Cream –¬†¬†is to regenerate,¬†restore a radiant complexion that is full of vitality while reducing the visible signs of ageing. For each has its own functions but bottom line is to help keep your youth.

As with all Sothys products, this restructuring and redensifying youth cream are a lot pricey than your average drugstore. But if you’re looking for a youth cream that really does a fab job to fight the signs of ageing then these products are for you!

What I love about this Sothys Paris is that the formula feels like silk and consists of top notch BP3 Tri-Complex ingredients.¬†I’m so lucky that I’ve the chance to try you out and I urge those of you who wish to keep your real age to yourselves … definitely give this one a go!

So those are a few of my top new high end skincare products. I’d love to know if you guys have any recommendation products that I should try.¬†Don’t forget to share in the comment section which product is your favorite?

Thanks again for staying with me till the end and I love you very much [muak]! Until next time.

Sharon xoxo

Fall Glam with Rodial – PR Unboxing & Reviews

 

Hey everyone! I’ve yet another PR Unboxing for you guys. I thought you enjoyed the last one so I thought I’d show it to you on my post what I got sent recently by the brand Rodial Cosmetics. I was sent these new collection so that I can try them out and potentially share them with you. And I’m very grateful for this.

In this post I’m going to talk all about makeup products to glam up this fall/winter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*Press Samples

I’ll start with a PR Unboxing¬†and then we’ll go to product reviews that I’ve dying to share with you guys. These makeup products are sent to me for my review and it’s my first time trying out this product line. We got¬†the Rodial Glamolash Mascara Skinny, Instaglam Magic Pen, Suede Lips and a Blush.¬†

Rodial Glamolash Mascara Skinny

I’m going to start with the Glamolash Mascara Skinny since it’s the first product which I took out from the bag and the rest follows next.¬† It says on the packaging – a Soft Black & Lash enchancer and everything you read is true. I’ve been testing out several different mascara lately and it’s safe for me to say that I’m quite impressed with this product.

Glamolash mascara

It has a straight up wand which I quite like a lot honestly. With my typical straight and sparse lashes I really appreciate wand like so. The applicator sort of reminds me of the Tarte Lights, Camera Lashes mascara that I just reviewed not too long ago. And as far as the formulation goes, it’s not super heavy on my lashes and with this one, I find that after I curled my lashes to the max, I’m able to put this on and it’s able to hold my curl and not weight them down. I find this is a great mascara if you’ve lashes that are hard to keep curled. One last thing, the formula isn’t heavy nor super clumping or anything like that. If you’re in the market for a good quality mascara, I recommend you to check this one out.

Rodial Instaglam Magic Pen

Instaglam Magic Pen Eye Glow gives you a nice pearlescent look on the inner eyes and in the corner of the bottom lash line.

Instaglam crystal

Can we just admire the beauty of this gorgeous crystal at the end of this sleek black pen packaging.

Instaglam Magic Pen Swatch Rodial

The formula is not chalky and it gives you that beautiful pearlize finish. I wear it on my brow bone and inner corner of my eyes and I’m loving how it brigthens up.

Rodial Suede Lips

Suede Lips by Rodial in the shade Rodeo Drive¬†is a rich orange red and is perfect for glamming up your look this holidays. This velvety lip pencil gives your lips that super silky feels but provides a matte finish that’s not drying on your lips.

Rodial Sude Lips Crayon

The formula is not too hard nor too soft that makes application super easy. It says on their website that it contains vitamin E which probably is the reason why the formula feels so comfortable to wear.

Lip color swatch by Rodial

I’m liking the texture and this shade is simply gorgeous. Nicely pigmented. It’s glides on creamy and long wearing. I wore it again today and it lasted for hours. It’s so easy to touch up if you want to but in my case I like it even after it faded to an even and nice lip stain. My only complaint is that I notice some tiny feathering on my top lips when I put it on but it’s not very visible unless you go very near to the person. I then use a lip liner to help prevents it from feathering and it works. Problem solved!

Rodial Blush

I’ve my Blusher in Copacabana¬†which is kind of a brigh coral peach shade. This stuff is stunning!

Inside packaging Rodial Blush

It comes in a nice round metal compact packaging with a cute mirror. I like how lightweight and compact it is to bring in your purse. The texture is smooth and it feels almost airbrush when I had it on the other day. It stays on for a good 10 hours and could be longer if only I didn’t remove it for bed time.

Finger blush swatch

You can totally layer it up for more intense look but if you like your makeup to be less is more then one swoosh is enough for each cheek. It just applies beautifully no matter  how much or little I apply. I really like the color payoff. Such a beautiful color!

Rodial blush color swatch

You can go ahead and add this blusher onto your wish list this year. I’m currently in love with the texture and this gorgeous color. And if you’re a hater for shimmery blush then this stuff is made for you. It gives your cheek that healthy sunny glow that’s not over the top.

Overall I was pleased with these products from Rodial. I wear them very frequently! Let me tell you that I’ve been completely obsessed with this glam.

Which of these Rodial products is your favorite? Have you heard of this brand before? Share it in the comment below.

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

 

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

Let’s jump right in:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

The Creme Shop in a jar

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

Depuffing & anti-inflamatory gel mask

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

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

Texture gel mask

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

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

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

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

 

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

1-6shadows7-12shadows

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

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

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

Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara – First Impression

 

Hey everybody! Today I’m going to talk about a product that doesn’t seems to get much love here in my blog. Don’t get me wrong, I like mascara but it’s just not my thing until now. I’m completely converted overnight!

Clinique mascara

Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara is a volumizing mascara that claims to be lasting, lash-volumizing mascara that lusciously plumps up lashes without weighing them down.

chubby wand clinique

A chubby applicator that gives your lashes a fuller look, I like that the formula doesn’t clump, flake or smudge on me.¬†As you can see, it’s the tiny bristles which grip the lashes giving them awesome volume. Awesome isn’t it!

This mascara is not waterproof as I like my mascara to be waterproof. But I don’t mind since this mascara is so comfortable to wear and is so easy to remove. This product is fragrance free and ophthalmologist tested so it’s perfect for sensitive eyes person like me. I didn’t notice any discomfort or irritation on my eyes the whole day I was wearing it.

It gives my lashes a full, long look like no other and the bristles make for a clean, easy application.¬†I know it’s called “lash fattening” but what it does for me is it really makes my lashes LONG.

Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara

I wore this on the weekend and I was quite impressed with the volume and lifting this product gives.¬†I was blown away by it. Look how long my short lashes transformed after wearing 2 coats of mascara. I really love the volume it gives my lashes without weighing them down. I think it would work great for those of us who have shorter eyelashes. I also got so many compliments from church friends. I’m in love with this mascara.

I highly recommend this if you’re in the market for a voluminous mascara. Clinique is a brand that gives you good quality products with an awesome price point without breaking your bank.

This is such an awesome product – I’m going to wear it every single day moving forward.

Is mascara your beauty must haves? If yes, which one is your holy grail? Have you tried this Chubby Lash Mascara. Do tell me your thoughts in the comments down below.

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

I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Labstory – Korean Skincare & Makeup Products

 

Happy Wednesday guys! Hope you’ve a nice and productive week this far. If you’ve been following me on Snapchat or Facebook, it’s been a bit crazy for me and honestly what’s new? I’ve been having problem with my health and emotions again lately. Blogging has kept me going and moving forward. It forces me to get out of the bed each morning and keeps me on a schedule.

Having said that, I like to try as much product as I can from good¬†brands or reputable brands I trust¬†and want¬†to work with. When Lab Story¬†approached me not too long ago¬†if I’ll be interested to do a collaboration with them, I can’t say no to that.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
* Press Samples

Today‚Äôs post highlight four of my latest love for these skincare products.¬†I never tried anything from the brand. This is my first time trying out products from Lab Story. Quickly I fell in love with Lab Story and here’s my story.

I received four full sample size products in the mail¬†and¬†I’m super excited to share my thoughts and opinions.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LAB STORY Facial Cleansing Foam Whitening Cleanser

This is by far my most favorite cleansing foam I’ve ever tried from a Korea brand. It smells divine and a little goes a long way. Just a tiny bit not bigger than the size of a pea is all you need to cleanse the whole face.

My current go to cleansing foam. I’ve been washing my face with the cleansing foam since I got it and I’ve loving it. This photo doesn’t do it justice but¬†when you add a little more water, the¬†foam lather like no other.¬†My skin feels so smooth and soft after rinsing them. The fragrance of the herbs and fruit extracts are so inviting. Makes me look forward to¬†my evening skincare routine every day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LAB STORY Deep Pore Purifying Cleansing Foam Extra Mild Oil Control

Next is another cleansing foam that combats oily skin while going deep into the pores. They use natural ingredients such as tea tree leaf oils and herbs extracts which I really like.

Since I’ve combination to dry skin, I only used this for a week. I didn’t notice a huge dryness on my face, but I like the gentle foaming action that it delivers to your face. It goes on and washes off so easily. It smells fresh and clean.

This would be prefect for me try again in summer when the weather gets warmer and a little more humid. I’ll test it again for a little while longer and report back my final verdict on this one.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LAB STORY Perfect Blemish Balm Korean BB Cream SPF 30 PA++ 50ml

BB Cream (Blemished Balm) of the East. Although BB cream has a history that it¬†begins in Germany, it’s the Korean that got hold of this product with the intention to get a flawless skin. But these days, you see every brands own a BB cream (stretching from East to the West) and they cater to different skin types and different demands across the world.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I¬†was so excited to put my¬†first experience¬†to the test. This product has only one shade if I’m not mistaken and I’m happy to say that it’s a good match for my skin tone. It gives a good sheer to decent medium coverage. It’s feels lightweight and¬†doesn’t feel tacky at all. It blends on beautifully and no streaky lines to be seen.

It claims to smoothes the skin and protects the skin from foreign harms and everyday UV. It covers skin blemishes effectively and equalizes the skin tone allowing for a natural clear makeup.

I second the claim for I could see that this product works amazingly as a blurring agent that covers pores and skin imperfections. This could be my holy grail Asian BB cream.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LAB STORY Anti Wrinkle Whitening Cream Skincare Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ 40ml 

Last but not least, I got this Whitening Cream which I assume it to be another BB cream but this has platinum powder in it. Well, at least that’s how I’ve been using it. It has SPF 50+ which is so perfect for spring to summer. If wrinkles worries you, what do you think of this Anti Wrinkle cream?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It has a very nice consistency and not thick in formula. It goes on smoothly and blends amazingly. I use beauty sponge but you can use brush whichever you like. It gives a very nice coverage and it smells so good. And I really like the dewy finish results on my dry to combination skin.

It’s so hard to make good skincare and makeup products and Lab Story does¬†it amazingly¬†on both categories.¬† So, it‚Äôs to no surprise I‚Äôm loving these products so much. I highly recommend this brand if you’re on the market for some great skincare products that actually work. I don’t have anything bad to say about them.¬†I’m very impressed with the quality and¬†will definitely go back to this brand again and again. Don’t have to take my word for it. You got to try it yourself!

If you want a chance to try everything in today’s post, you can check out Lab Story Korea, Amazon or Ebay and learn more about their products at the websites.

Have you tried Lab Story¬†before? What are some of your favorites I‚Äôd love to hear from you! Whether you’re beginners to mavens, all are welcome here!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read. If you did enjoy this post definitely follow my blog. I hope you come to check on my social media down below. In the meantime come and say hi! I’ll see you on my next blog, bye!

Disappointing Product – Month of July

 

First blog of the week, huh! Actually what prompted me to do this post is my disappointment of these liquid foundations I got recently. I have a UK Beauty Haul coming up but I wanted to mention this first. I feel that it’s worth mentioning this upfront.

This is my first time trying out the foundation from Makeup Revolution London¬†and sad to say, I don’t like them. There! I’ve said it. Read more if you’re curious to know why …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While I was looking at some other makeup products to combine on shipping, I came across ¬†this The One Foundation¬†on the Makeup Revolution London website. So, I go ahead and I ordered a medium shade just to try it. Little did I know that I’m ordering two bottles for the price of one and it seems that I had also ordered another set but it was in a very¬†deep¬†shades.¬†I was beyond furious when I first saw these.

I’m going to talk about this product based on the way we’re going to use them! And this is no different when it comes to liquid foundation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This foundation is almost like water in consistency and does not have any scents. I used my dam beauty blender to apply the first and two layers but this foundation in Shade 13 didn’t seems to do anything or even a slight sheer coverage on my skin. It’s like I’m not applying any product on my face at all. It just didn’t do anything!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the four bottles of the One Foundation¬†by Makeup Revolution London that I’m going to pass it on to some friends who might appreciate the formula more than I do. The darker shades are Shade 14, 15 & 16 and they’re definitely not my shade at all. Even their Shade 13 was a little darker than I anticipated. I was hoping that it would work on my tan skin for this summer but after trying it for a few days, I don’t see myself reaching out for it or not at all.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Coming to the packaging, it is very sturdy and small in size which reminds me of the Mac Studio Face and Body Foundation, which makes it easier to carry it around with you. I did notice a little product does come out because of the runny consistency, but it remains on the nozzle of the packaging and does not spill out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really don’t like this formula at all. They’re much too runny to work on and difficult to built up to the desire coverage.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Basically, you’ve¬†to shake the bottle for 3-4 seconds before pouring them out. Since they’re so watery, I used the container from my¬†lipstick kit (pic inserted). It’s quite hard to work with the consistency of this foundation. I then dip the blender to take the product but much were absorb by the sponge than on face. And yes, I’ve using a sponge and it just soak up all the foundation. If you use a brush it is kind of difficult to get the product evenly distributed on the skin and neither using fingers helps. It’s too runny to hold up water. I wonder what were they thinking when developing this foundation? I’m really curious to know.

This is my first time experience with Makeup Revolution foundation and I’m disappointed to say this. I don’t know what to make of these. It’s not a foundation and definitely not a BB cream. So bumped!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the round ups:

Pros:

  • ¬†Reasonable price
  • Good shade selection, for all skin types (I got mine all too dark) Problem for ordering online ūüė¶ Never know what you order until it arrives.
  • Sturdy package

Cons:

  • Difficult consistency to work with
  • Near to none¬†coverage

Conclusion –¬†¬†I feel the foundation would be better if the consistency was a little thicker, which would make it easier for application and better coverage.

Please keep in mind- different people are going to have different opinions on products. So, there’s no big earth-shattering revelation there.

But as always, I’m just here to share my 2 cents and everyone is entitled to make their own decisions! Everyone doesn’t have to think the same, and I think we should ENCOURAGE unique perspectives ūüôā

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Pride+Prejudice+ZOMBIES By Bh Cosmetics

 

Hey guys!

Have you watched the comedy horror film “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies”? The horror film is based on the 2009 novel where “in the 19th century, a mysterious plague turns the English countryside into a war zone. If you haven’t, you can watch it on Netflix.

I was very excited when they first launched the Bh Cosmetics Pride & Prejudice & Zombies makeup collections. 

Fall in love and¬†fight with zombies¬†killers from Bh Cosmetics! Continue to read on …

Here are the ingredients on the back of the packaging. Oh yes, can you spot the bunny? That’s the cruelty free logo where you know the brand¬†do not tested their products on animals.

You get twelve beautifully pigmented eyeshadows, a highlighter and two blushes from this palette. There are a mixed of matte and shimmery shadows.

I love the interior as much as the exterior. It’s all matte black with glossy black motifs and a quote from the movie/book printed in gold under the mirror. I find the design to be quite elegant.

‚ÄúI shall never relinquish my sword for a ring‚ÄĚ

These eyeshadows are clearly separated into two parts. The top row being warm tones while the bottom being cooler tones. There are four mattes and eight shimmer in this palette.

I went to divide these shadows to three quads as shown below:

Swatches you see here are made without primers with single swipes. Each are beautifully pigmented. If I have to choose the lowest pigmentation among all the rest, I’ll say the 1st shades on the top and bottom rows.

Oops!!! When I was editing I then realized that I was actually missing one color swatch which was the dark brown (second from your right) not shown in the photo.

Notice here, the pigmentation on the black (the last shadow on your right) just blew me off. Seriously super black!

I also love the highlighter and the blushes. So pretty and nicely pigmented.

Good job, BH Cosmetics, you’ve nailed¬†it again! I love everything about this palette!

Have you picked this palette yet? If not, quickly go and get the BH Cosmetics Pride & Prejudice & Zombies Makeup Collection now for a limited time only. This is still a good deal for just US$ 12.50 so I would tell you not to miss it out!

I really enjoy this palette. I can’t wait to get my order for the lip gloss. Don’t forget to check back to read more on the lip gloss collection review coming up next.
