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.

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.

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!

Best Of K-Beauty Products|Made in Korea – Reviews & Photos

 

K_Beauty *PR Samples

Hey guys! So here I am finally doing a Best of K-Beauty products that I’ve received from a brand company in Korea. Shout out to Soyoung from Labstory for spoiling me with these amazing products to try on. I received these products for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

So, here we go:

Wonder Shiny Body Scrub

The first thing that I want to share with you is this big size tube of Wonder Shiny Body Scrub by Aida Cosmetics.¬† I love love the scents of this body scrub. It smells glorious I tell ya’ll!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ingredients about the product as shown on Amazon is as follows:

– Contains 20% walnut shells
– 7 types of fruit extrat
– 10 types fo natural oil
– Contains 4 types fo herb extract
– Sweet and fresh grapefruit flavor

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a close-up shot of the mini beads so that you can see the texture and stuff like that up close. As you can see, it’s not too rough or harsh on my skin whatsoever. In fact, it’s the perfect texture that I’ve been looking for. It’s save to say that it’s by far my current most reached body scrub. Leaving my skin so fragrant, soft and fresh. I’m in love with it!

Body Vital

Next is this Body Vita Show Filter in Lavender which I received to do this review. This is a product that’s really new to me at least and I wouldn’t have thought it would work at all but I was mistaken. This stuff works wonder in the shower and you don’t need a plumber to do it. It smells really good and easy to install. If I can do you, so can you!

It’s been a week now that I’ve been cleaning my body and hair with this shower filter and always comes out of the show feeling refresh and so relax. I suspect it’s the lavender that has those calming properties that’s both aroma therapeutic and relaxing for my body. I really enjoy this product and find a reason to jump in the shower every chance I can. I wouldn’t ask for anything better!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Comes in four amazing scents to choose from with a new recent fragrant in Freesia added to this line.

Main ingredient used in the process, such as:

  • Vitamin-C (Ascorbic Acid),
  • Citric Acid,
  • Mud powder,
  • Powdered skim milk, and
  • Aromatic scent

If you’re looking for a great scent that won’t leave your shower and easy to install, search no more, this shower filter is made for you!

@Dressingtable Handcream

Korea CHEONGSONG Natural Apple Moisturizer Organic Hand Cream¬†is so gentle and easy to use. Natural apples were used in the process of making this hand cream. That’s so amazing!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been using this hand cream ever since my trip to Toronto and have been loving it so much. The cream formula is rich and moist leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. The consistency is not too thick or runny and not greasy at all. I urge you to try it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least are these Wonder Butter Lip Mask and Sugar Lip Scrub by Aida Cosmetic. It was the first time I’ve tried products from a Korean brand and I really being loving them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like the idea of a plastic container that won’t break when travelling. They’re travel friendly and convenient for you to just pop in your suitcase or into your purse. To be honest, if I’ve to choose between the two, I think my favorite has to be the sugar lip scrub, it’s seriously the best lip scrub ever and it taste delicious!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What I like about the butter lip mask and sugar lip scrub is that they’re safe to be eaten, so you don’t have to rinse off these products. Stress-free just like how I liked it!

Make sure to check on the links of all these products I mentioned above on Amazon or if you find something that catches your fancy.

That’s it for my Best of K-Beauty guys, I hope you like this post. As always, do let me know what you guys think in the comment section below. I hope you found something that you are looking forward to try!

I was at the drugstore yesterday and I picked up this new highlighter which I’m really excited to share my first impression. I’ve always looking for affordable makeup products that actually work. So that’s why this really appealed to me. This brand is a familiar friend and it’s the most raved¬†Wet n Wild Mega Glo Highlighter Powder¬†by so many beauty bloggers and youtubers in the beauty world. I was really curious and have always wanted to try out new drugstore products.

blossom glowI haven’t open it yet just so that I could show it to you guys a bit of a first impression here on my blog.

Megaglo wet n wild .jpg

First of all let’s start with the packaging. It comes in a simple Wet n Wild plastic compact packaging and it’s huge. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use on this.

Cruelty free

There’s like a flower petal stamped onto it which I find really cute and the shade I got is in¬†Blossom Glow. It’s a new shade brought to you by Wet n Wild. The new shades are the Royal Calyx (lavender), Botanic Dream (pink), Blossom Glow (pale pink champagne), and Golden Flower Crown (yellow-gold) that currently joined the lineup of Precious Petals (peach) and Crown Of My Canopy (copper). Even better, each one is retails for CAD$6.99 which is so inexpensive for a drugstore brand and they’re cruelty free.

This shade is totally something I’d wear on a daily basis. It’s pigmented and yet blend so well. I’m pretty impressed and loving the formula already.

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?

High Density TIGI Quad Eyeshadow – Reivew & Swatch

 

It seems that I mark any celebration or even my travel adventures with makeup. A luxury item that I acquired recently is the High Density TIGI Cosmetics Quad Eyeshadow while I was on a road trip.

HIgh Density Tigi Quad Eyeshadow
Lush

I’m always on the hunt of eyeshadow and TIGI makeup products that’s always make its way into my collection. Love the luxe packaging where it houses a mixed of two matte and two shimmer shadows. This is a cool compact eyeshadows doing unique and interesting things. The shades are really pretty for all season and you can wear them at any time of the year.

Tigi Cosmetics Quad Eyeshadow

A mineral base eyeshadow that keeps me going back for more. The shade I got is in Lush.¬† I love about eveything about this quad eyeshadow especially the cute compact disc packaging that’s see through. I’m a sucker for cute packaging so this one is definitely right up my street.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They go on so smooth and what’s great about this stuff is that it’s long wearing. They blend beautifully and so easy to work on.

The price can be of higher price range but it’s woth the investment. So it’s going to be a great product to use throughout the winter.

Color swatch Tigi eyeshadow

I dig into the shades and the color swatches as you can see here. Can we take a few minutes to admire these?¬†All four shades works into today’s look.

The lighter shade on the far left , I use it as a highlighter on my brow bone and sometimes I wear it on the lid and apply the dark brown on the crease and outer corner. I see these shades to be versatile and travel friendly. You can play with different look with this quad. They’re really good quality and very pigmented. They go on evenly and these bright metallic blue and red are interesting colors to wear for a dramatic evening look.¬† The shine that it has is so stunning.

I show you the eye look I got today which is definitely giving me like the care free and¬† relaxing vibes. I’m loving this!

This is a travel must-have! I’m happy I picked this one up for the trip. You can wear your own look with one shade alone or use a multitude colors. I highly recommend this quad!

I think it’s safe to say that TIGI is my beauty soulmate. As a beauty blogger sure has its perks. You can expect to see my obsession for beauty skyrocket in the coming months.

Thank you so much for stopping by and read. I hope you guys enjoyed discovering this product with me.

May Skincare Favorites

 

Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog.¬†It’s been awhile since we sat down and talked about favorites. And since it’s¬†that time again, I thought I’ll round up a few of my skincare favorites from the last month or so.

So, let’s hop into it.

Hey Sharonoox May Skincare Faves

For this post I wanted to show you a few of the items that I’ve really been enjoying for the month of May, the ones that have made my daily skincare routine all the more fun and the ones that help to make my skin not only look and feel on top condition, but help to give me a little bit of zen in my life at the same time. I love these products and I know that you will too!

OLYMPUS Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream
#Press sample

You guys know I’m super into moisturizers so when I was given this Clarins Extra Firming Day Wrinkle Lifting Cream ¬†free¬†sample from my¬†beautician at my local Pharmaprix to try it¬†out, ¬†and I was completely hooked. I love it so much that I’ve been in¬†my daily routine for quite sometime now. I’m sad that it’s finishing soon but I’ll purchase it in a full size. I’m lazy when it comes to applying too many products on my skin so I really like the efficient way of wearing it. The formula is so creamy that makes it easy to wear and it smells so amazing. This product is luxurious that it feels like an awesome treat to apply! I‚Äôd go as far to say that the Firming Day Cream¬†is up there with some of my favorites. It leaves my skin feeling very hydrated and firmer. Give it a go¬†if you haven’t already.¬†

Aveeno Posivitely Radiant Night Cream

You all know by now that I’m a fan of Aveeno products and this Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream is¬†my drugstore alternative night cream to my Lancome Bienfait Vital Night Cream when I don’t feel like to be spendy. I’m not saying that it’s better¬†than the latter but it’s works the same¬†for me. Both have vitamins that helps the skin to¬†recharge, radiantly luminous¬†and ready to face the day.

Aveeno Posivitely Radiant Night Cream

I’ve been using this product consistency for the past 3 months before going to bed and I’ve almost ran out of this one. Even though it’s almost done but it lasts a long time because I don’t need to use so much product. The formula is so good that with just the size of dime is all I need, so a¬†little goes a long way. I’m so happy that I almost hit pan with this product. I love it¬†so much.¬†Get yours here.

Origins Frosty Face wash

Next favorite I want to give a shout out to is the Origins Cheeks and Balances Frosty Face Wash. Come on who doesn’t like Origins right! This brand is awesome and honestly¬†I’ve been loving some¬†of their skincare products lately.

I tried it a many¬†times and with so many products I received, I kind of forgot about it and ever since I rediscovered it again in my vanity and I’ve been using this non-stop. With combo skin I find it hard to pick a cleanser that doesn’t dry out my face and keeps the oil at a minimum but this product changed everything. It smells great and lather amazingly. It gives a foamy¬†feeling during wash and it feels gently to the skin. A little goes such a long and I do appreciate that. Makes me¬†remember why I love it so much in the first place. If you love Origins, you must¬†run to get it, it¬†saddens me that such great product is so underrated.

Acure Moroccan Oil [Rose]
#Press sample
This product smells insane. Yes, I’m talking about the Acure Moroccan Argan Oil Rose. This¬†was sent to me for an exchange of my honest opinion a while ago. I love the scents of rose and cherish it; this smells so good. The pump bottle packaging is perfect for girls like me who prefers not to dab my fingers into the product. And when it comes to cute packaging, I’m down you know what I mean. Another thing I really like about the packaging is that it’s travel friendly.

I’ve been wearing this as¬†face serum in my nighttime skincare routine, on my cuticles and my¬†dry flaky heels. It’s super moisturizing and with my combination to dry skin type this is a great standby oil to always have on my hand. This oil is the best I’ve tried by far. For some of you who’s environmentally concern, rest assure that this brand is cruelty, vegan and paraben FREE. ¬†You seriously got to try it.

Caudalie Grape Water

Last but not least in my May Skincare Favorite is the Caudalie Grape Water. ¬†I LOVE face mists, and when I stumbled upon this Grape Water by Caudalie I know that we’re going to be BFF. I love this stuff. It¬†has the faintest scents of grapes¬†which isn’t over the top kind of smell, if you know what I mean! It’s so easy to use and it makes my skin feels nice and fresh. I like to spritz it when I’m on my no makeup day – just to give my skin a little boost and energy kick which I didn’t know I needed. You can also used it as a setting spray after your makeup, it’s so versatile you can use it how ever ways that¬†sails your boat.¬†Trust me! This is a must have. Available at Sephora.

Have you tried any of the products that I‚Äôve mentioned in this post? If so, which ones are your favorites? I‚Äôd love to know!¬†I‚Äôm always looking for new skincare products to try, so if you’ve any recommendations that you think I’ll love then please let me know by leaving me a comment down below, I can‚Äôt wait to hear what you guys are loving!

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. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Japanese KOJI DOLLY WINK Liquid Eyeliners – REVIEW

 

Wow! Again, I can’t believe how fast another month has gone by. It’s only last week I celebrated my birthday. In this post, I wanted to give a shout out to my lovely daughter who knows me so well.

This is the best gift ever! She knows that I love Dolly Wink liquid liners and the rest is history. I couldn’t get enough of this¬†liquid eyeliners ever since¬†I tried it. This¬†could be a very possible contestant¬†for the¬†Sharon’s¬†Beauty¬†Awards. And for me to receive three of my favorites Dolly Wink, I was so happy I almost passed out.

It’s the only liquid eyeliner that I will swear by. xD¬†It’s fantastic!¬†Keep reading to find out my entire thoughts about the eyeliner ~¬†It’s definitely a MUST HAVE eyeliner.

3 eyeliners

In case you’re not familiar with the product and its origin, Dolly Wink is a Japanese brand produced by the Japanese model Tsubasa Masuwaka, who represents the Gyaru¬†trend which literally translates to gal in English. Dolly Wink is a brand presented by Koji as you can see on all their packaging.

DW liquid liner

I’ve this same liquid liner when my daughter first bought it back for me from Japan. I fell in love with it instantly.¬†It’s exactly like the Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner but so much better. Honestly, this is one of the best eyeliners I’ve ever used.

Love this eyeliner. The brush is so easy to work with, it goes on black and the thin brush allows you to create a perfect smooth lines and sharp¬†winged liner sections a breeze.¬†The formula is very long lasting and waterproof. I could tell you this is the only product that doesn’t smudge and stay on even when I’m crying my eyes out (when I get emotion) –¬†LOL.

Dolly wink liquid liner

The shade I got is in Deep Black and¬†although it’s not the¬†blackest color I’ve seen, I can say it’s color is pigmented.

I really like the cute packaging of this eyeliner pen. The product comes in a pink color pen with golden ornaments all over and a black cap.

LiquidEyelinerDollyWInk

It makes my eyes look so flattering and bigger.

DW Pencil liner

Next I’ve the Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner in Black. A pencil type liner with a creamy soft touch. It’s break resistant and so easy to apply. As you know, I’m a sucker for cute packaging so this design is right up my alley. It’s so pretty and kawaii!!!

I’ve been holding off to trying any pencil liners for the longest time since I couldn’t find a real easy to blend pencil eyeliner that would glide on like a dream.

I did my¬†first impression today (Sunday), and I’m in love with this liner. It’s so easy to use¬†and I’ve no issues in drawing thin or thick lines. The color payoff is amazing¬†and it gives a matte finish which I really appreciate.

Dolly Wink pencil liner

In the swatch above, the pencil eyeliner is matte while the liquid pen is glossy. If you’re into liquid eyeliner and likes to draw thin sharp lines, I think the first¬†one is for you.

I try to smudge it on the above picture, I hardly rub it and so glad it stayed! It won’t budge at all. I wore it from morning till night time¬†and it lasted me for a good 12¬†hours wear. Good news is that even though it’s waterproof, it’s easy to remove using warm water or the¬†eye makeup remover.

So, for my first Dolly Wink pencil eyeliner (kohl) review, it’s a keeper in my makeup stash. I know I’m going to use it almost everyday.

Here’s the look:¬†Line my upper lash line with the pencil eyeliner, pardon the not so good line here.

DW liquid liner No 1

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Super Black packaging version is red color pen with golden ornaments all over. It’s so cute and looks expensive.

I love how the brush is very thin because it makes getting a precise line easy and simple. The tip applicator is identical to the Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black. Making wings and cat eye liner is so, so quick with this eyeliner.

Dolly Wink No 1 Liquid Liner

Here’s a¬†swatch of the colors. I really love how pigmented these eyeliners are. ¬†They’re smudge proof and dries quickly as claimed but the best part is –¬†you can easily removed it¬†with just warm water. Forget the fuss of makeup remover.¬†It comes off easily.

These eyeliners didn’t come cheap, it costs my daughter a whopping $45 for¬†these three eyeliners. So based on the price of these eyeliners, they’re a pretty expensive eyeliner but Dolly Wink is a very popular brand in Japan so I’m not so surprised. Yes, they’re more expensive than the typical drugstore liquid eyeliner in the US but I promise they’re so, worth¬†the price!

I highly recommend this brand if you’re into pencil eyeliners. Have you tried Dolly Wink Eyeliners?

And that‚Äôs all I’ve for now! Comment below if you’ve any suggestions or thoughts you’ve for my blog. I’m open to all your ideas!

I hope you all have a wonderful day/evening. I love you and take care!

This palette is a collaboration with beauty youtuber and this one bronzing & highlighting palette is with Serena from Beautylab. I like supporting beauty youtuber who works hard and get their name out.

There are four available and the one that drawn me the most is called The Glow Must Go On, a bronzing and highlighting palette! 

Really like the outside packaging and design of this palette. It’s made of cardboard material but very sturdy. It’s a nice size for travelling and small enough to fit into any makeup bag.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In this palette, you get a highlighter, two eyeshadows and three beautiful shimmery bronzers. There’s¬†a small brush to help you apply the products but I prefer to use it for touch ups only. To me it seems like a perfect “getaway” palette for holidays. You can also use the glowing highlighter or bronzers on your eyes, to add them some more shine.

This palette is amazing. I was blown away when I swatched these. They feel so creamy and pigmented.¬†¬†‚Äúthe glow must go on‚ÄĚ palette has three different bronzers in warm.

If you want to know if it impressed me or not, read on!

L-R: Honey Glow Highlighter, Cinnamon and Sandalwood Eyeshadows 

The Cinnamon eyeshadow is described as brick¬†orange while Sandalwood is more like medium dark brown shadow. I was drawn to the Sandalwood¬†shade as it’s chocolaty and looks like a rich color.¬†¬†As for the Cinnamon, it’s more¬†dusty than the darker brown and the pigmentation isn’t the best but¬†can be built up a bit.¬†These two eyeshadows are matte and can be used as bronzer if you like to mix things up a bit.¬†I used the Cinnamon shade as transition color or on the crease and the Sandalwood on the outer corner.

Next is the Honey Glow highlighter which gives a frosty finish that I really like. It’s pigmented so you don’t need loads to achieve the desired look.

Next are the swatches of the trio power Glowing Bronzer. The bronzers are in copper,  bronze and pink shade. The finish of the bronzer is super metallic and looks very well on warmer skin tones. Brunettes with yellow undertone will love this!

The texture is very soft. It’s buildable as well as blendable. The shades are beautiful but the drawback for me is¬†the shimmery¬†formula.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This small brush applicator is useful to apply highlighter or touch ups. I find it’s too big and flat for your eyes and too small to use for your face.

MOTD

Oh boy, am I glowing!!! The highlighter is my only favorite from the palette.

Overall, I think this is a nice palette if you’re looking for minimum color palette which is easy to work. It’s not a terrible palette if you like glowy bronzers which I’m not really a fan of. The design got my attention and the fact that I’m supporting a youtuber in her collab with Essence. Sadly, ¬†as much as I want to like all of them, it’s a miss for me.¬†I would say¬†don’t waste your money, there are other drugstore palettes out there that offers more for your buck.

Hope this review was helpful to you! If you do decide to try these palettes, let me know how they fared with you!

New Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette by BH Cosmetics

 

What’s up you guys? Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be a very exciting one because I just received my Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition 21 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette in the¬†mail two days ago. When I opened it – my heart skip a beat.

I was going to do a different post on beauty haul but that would come shortly.

This palette is¬†so much better than I thought given I only paid $19.50 for this palette.¬†Hearing so many amazing things about her¬†first palette, I can only imagine how much more awesome this palette will be. I’m shaking with excitement as I¬†unwrapped this bad boy.¬†SPOILER ALERT¬†–¬†It’s gorgeous!

Now let’s get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From what I learned, the newest collaboration from BH Cosmetics and Carli Bybel is a turn up version of her previous palette.¬†In case some of you didn’t know who Carli Bybel is, she’s a huge youtuber with over 5 million subscribers on tube.

She already has one BH collab, I never purchased¬†it which makes this even better thing for me to get because I don’t have the original.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a gorgeous palette, it’s¬†luxurious and the color selections are amazing. The outside design of the packaging is cute. It’s a very large palette which I like but not practical for travel at all. It got a nice big mirror and it says “aspire to inspire”. It’s a nice cardboard packaging, it’s not going to get too dirty and you could wipe it clean.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The packaging is huge but not bulky in thickness whatsoever and there’s a magnet closure on the lid which I really appreciate.

7 new shades

Deluxe Edition has all the previous shades plus seven new shadows and three new highlighters. The shadows and highlighters marked with a smiley emoji symbol are the newbies, FYI.

In this palette EVERYTHING is creamy and buttery to perfection.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you guys just look at these shadows. These shadows just screams spring to me. Look at the mauvy, purple and peachy shadows. The colors are absolutely stunning just by looking at it. So, let’s into swatching.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
1st row

I’m using a finger swatch without any eye primer or eyeshadow base on my arm.¬†I swatched the shades for you guys and as you can see the pigmentation is incredible especially those shimmery ones.

Here‚Äôs the top row of shadows. Can we just stop and be mesmerized by¬†this rosy pink shade (second on the right). That’s such a beautiful color. So much pigment and shimmery reflect. The last one the right has the same color¬†except it’s less of a pink that you see here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
2nd row

I was sucked in the most by the mauvy shadows in the middle. Isn’t it¬†an amazing color that’s perfect for spring? I’m so excited I want to play with all the shades in this palette. Don’t forget to stay tuned as I share exciting #EOTD makeup on my Instagram¬†the coming days.

The matte shades have lovely¬†pigmentation and blended very well in my opinion. The shimmer shades are soft, buttery and highly pigmented with no effort required to get intense color payoff. They’re just stunning!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
3rd row

The eyeshadows are mainly neutral easy-to-wear shades, making this a great palette for every day and I find myself reaching for it often.

It has pink and plum shades in addition to gold, bronze and copper. The gold color second from left is pure stunning. I really like the versatility you get from this palette.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Guys could we stop here to admire these beauty. You know that these sections are for highlighters ONLY!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The left highlighter is an icy peach highlighter that has a warm to it. The golden highlighter on the right is one of the new hues.¬†Oh my gosh! Just look at that! It feels like they’re¬†super intense and almost…creamy. I don’t really know how to describe this. I can’t even tell you … you definitely need to get this palette I’m telling you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They threw in four other incredible highlighters that are insanely gorgeous.¬†Here‚Äôs the final row of highlighters with a new icy shade (far left) created for porcelain skin tones verse the warmer tones for women of color. I’m in love with the two middle highlighters currently. Let me know if you like to see a makeup tutorial in the comment section.

These are¬†the most pigmented, rich and beautiful highlighter¬†I’ve ever seen in¬†my life.¬†Absolutely stunning! I can tell you, the formula is out of this world. Seriously!

My two cents opinion, Carli makes it so affordable for everyone to purchase this. I’m loving the new shades of highlighters in her deluxe palette. The colors are gorgeous, and EVERY color here is usable! This palette is a steal for this price and so worth it. I can’t say enough about this palette! GO Get it!

The BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette is available for $19.50 (pre-order sale) at BHCosmetics.com.

Youtube Made Me Buy It – Makeup Products

 

Hi guys! If you’ve been following my blog, you may already know that I’m a makeup addict, and for most of you who have no knowledge of my beauty product addition! Just so that you know, in fact next to reading blog posts on all different topics, watching beauty bloggers on YouTube is¬†something else that I love. And yes, I take their opinions seriously!

I found out, on YouTube of course, makeup products they swear by it. So, here’s Youtube made me buy it products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did my Sephora online order recently using ebates cash back for 4% returns and for those of you who aren’t familiar with ebates, click here to find out more. I’ll also put a link down below if you care to check it out. In case you’re wondering, no I’m not paid or affiliated with ebates. I’m sharing¬†good news¬†of earning cash back as you shop.

Sorry I went tangent, let’s get back to the point.¬†I got¬†Nars Radiant Concealer and Sephora Matte Lip Color, while the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea skincare travel set has been sitting in the storage room¬†for a couple of months¬†because I didn’t got the time¬†to¬†try all of them out. So sorry about that guys! There are so many products¬†that I wanted to¬†test run for you guys but with so little time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sephora Luster Matte Long Wear Lip Color in Ruby Luster. You can get them at Sephora and there’s 12 colors to choose from.

I’ve never tried any Sephora brand lipsticks before and I was super excited to give this a test run the moment I got it in my hot paws.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the applicator because it’s a flat doe tip so it’s very easy to line your lips and just turn it over flat to fill in the color. It doesn’t have any scents at all, that’s actually a good thing because like most¬†lip products the scents lingers.

What is it? 

  • It‚Äôs a matte liquid lipstick with a subtle sheen
  • It‚Äôs long wearing and hydrating
  • Has rose seed hip oil
  • $16 at Sephora

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s the most pretty bold matte color that you¬†must have in your life. ¬†The color is so pigmented¬†and long wearing. Definitely feels lightweight on the lips as if not wearing anything at all. I like how comfortable it make my lips feel. It doesn’t feel sticky¬†whatsoever¬†but you’ve to be extra careful when applying this. A precision hand is required so that the product won’t stick on your teeth. Overall, I find it glides on smoothly¬†and the best thing is that it gives you a pretty nice kissable lips. Don’t you think?

LOTD

It doesn’t dry down to completely matte¬†as you can see here, I actually kind of like the slight luster of it. It’s subtle and not drying on lips and it doesn’t give the matte finish I was expecting. I wore it¬†the other day when I picked up my son and I got so many compliments from other moms.

Bottom line: This is not really a con because it says it’s a luster matte. So it’s not Matte guys. If you want matte go for the Matte Lip Creams by sephora collection. In conclusion, I really love this lip color. It looks flattering on me and the claims are on point. So yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard. I got a deluxe size for now because I want to try out this shade before committing to the full size.

I think this is the product that I’m most excited out of my¬†three purchase. I’ve been wanting to try out Nars¬†concealer for a while now and this will hopefully be one of my first purchases in the line if all goes well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I‚Äôm always on the hunt for new concealer¬†products to try, so when I saw one of my favorite youtuber¬†raved about it, I’m down to give it a shot. I’ve been dying to try this out and boy was¬†I impressed with the full coverage on the under eye areas. It’s creamy and works very well with any foundation. I didn’t notice any crease or crack from this product.¬†Also, it’s multi functional which I really appreciate.

Let me just say that this is a pretty custard shade which I really like. I really like that it covers my dark under eyes circle very well¬†and it looks¬†fresh on the skin. I want to point it out that the formula could be a little bit thick and heavy but if you use a beauty blender like I did to blend, you wouldn’t have any problem because it blends out really easily.

I’ll definitely get a full size tube on this one.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in Make a Splash Hydrating Skin Saver travel set (LE).¬†Whew! That’s quite a mouthful! I got the set awhile ago and the last time I checked, they’ve something similar which is also a limited edition of the¬†Hydration Vacation Skincare travel set.

This product has me very excited.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer¬†–¬†My skin has always been at some¬†level of dehydration. That’s part¬†of the reason with me having a dry to combination skin. At my age,¬†I’ve lost the overproduction of oil and developed dryness quite drastically. So, I was very keen to give it a test run.

It’s thin and gel like but it’s very hydrating. This is a formula that dry skin users will benefit most from. It quickly absorbs into skin without leaving been greasy or oily.¬†It just leave my skin with a nice glow that isn’t shiny but dewy finish.¬†It‚Äôs actually great for both day¬†and night use which is a rarity in the gel moisturizer world .

Another thing I want to mention is that it has a slight lavender scents which I¬†wouldn’t be very concerned about. But if you’re someone who doesn’t like scented or fragrance smell in your skincare products then you might want to skip this.

All in all, I’m very happy to have try this.¬†It‚Äôs a very nice gel moisturizer and considerably more hydrating than other gel moisturizers I‚Äôve had the pleasure of using in the past.¬†This is such a great treat for¬†my dry skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Deep Dive Cleansing Gel¬†–¬†It removes make-up and leaves my skin feeling clean & baby soft.¬†One important factor is the fragrance. This is ‚Äúlavender oil-infused‚ÄĚ and has a lavender that‚Äôs very pretty and relaxing. However, like I mentioned earlier if you’re sensitive users then you might not love this.

A product that marketed for all skin-types. It claims to remove makeup, soften, hydrate and brighten skin tone thanks to Vitamin C. It does a good job removing foundation and color cosmetics and rinses clean away.

It works well as a cleanser should be but I find it to stripe the moisture out after use from my ever drier skin. Anyways, I’ll continue to use it till its empty.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Mist – This is the third product from this travel set. With my dry skin situation, I welcome and am a fan of a more dewy makeup look so I like this product.

According to Tarte’s website it says as follows: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist is a new four-in-one facial mist that acts as a primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist, and skin refresher. So far, I’ve tried only with the misting and I can say it feels¬†refreshing and the mist is an even mist, which I appreciate. From my experience, this is a good product for my combination skin. It keeps my makeup intact.

I’ll be working on trying it out as a primer the next coming days. I’ll report back on the development once I get more use of the product.

I really hope that you enjoy reading my latest post. So glad to find these products to be actually working on me. Shout out to the Youtubers that made me buy it.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think? What has Youtube made you buy in the past? I’d love to know what products you guys would recommend that I try, so please leave me a comment down below and tell me what your favorites are!

Tester Wednesday: Lise Watier Rivages Eyeshadow Palette – Swatch & Review

 

Hi guys! Welcome back to Tester Wednesday.¬†Every week I rotate my makeup bag to test out products for a whole full week or find new makeup favorites that I haven’t tried before or testing out products¬†from my first impression after a full week test run.

So, let’s get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last week, I was testing a lot of products from Lise Watier which I really like and quite impressed with. So today, I thought I would share with you my thoughts and opinion on my new favorite Lise Watier Rivages Eyeshadows Palette.

I got this from their warehouse sale and the moment I saw the packaging and the color selections I knew I had to get my grabby hands on it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As always, Lise Watier impresses me right off the bat by housing their products in carefully thought out packaging. Judging by the Rivages packaging, it makes me think that this design was inspired by timeless elegance.

I’m SO grateful that it’s in my collection¬†as this palette is just such a beauty.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I look at this palette, I personally think that it could easily stand as a knockout on its own without the other supporting products. Look how gorgeous the colors are!

It housed ten beautiful eyeshadows in a brass edged and opalescent shell-like lid¬†compact with a rose-mauve interior. The underside of the lid features a large mirror, perfect for makeup on the go which¬†I really appreciate, and two duo-ended sponge tip applicators which I don’t use since I prefer to use my own¬†brushes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Inside this palette there are ten shades:

Top row: a soft corn yellow/ a muted moss green/a peach pink/ a plum & a deep wine red, kinda like a cool marsala

Bottom row: a soft blush pink/ a light mauve purple/ an icy blue pink/ a deep red bronze & a deep purple black

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Color swatches on bare arms

All the shades also have that characteristic hard texture typical of Lise Watier eyeshadows, however these ones at least felt a bit more buttery than previous palettes due to its powder-cream formulation.

I’m really blown away by the colors and formula in this palette. Just admire how insanely pigmented these shadows are. Best thing is, you don’t even need a primer for these shadows and they last all day with only moderate fading.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The¬†$54 price tag for ten¬†shades of the Rivages palette is quite pricey, but if you don’t have an extensive eyeshadow collection or if you happen to see it at a¬†warehouse sales for a discounted price, then by all means get this immediately. You’re going to like it.

EOTD
#EOTD 

Overall, the Palette Rivages is a hands-down must-have in my opinion, the quality and value of it is just beyond amazing. This is a perfect summer shadows I know I’ll be wearing all summer.

Have you frequented any beauty warehouse sales lately? If yes, which brand is your favorite and why?

Lise Watier Makeup Products (LE)

 

Hi guys! I thought I would share some of my beauty purchases I‚Äôve made last summer. I know it’s long overdue and that I¬†finally got the time to¬†do it. I¬†got a few other bits and bobs to show you but for now we will focus on the products I purchased at¬†Lise Watier warehouse sale with a fraction of their retail prices.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This Aurora Collection is¬†by no means¬†Lise Waiter‘s new collection line but it’s fairly new to me. As a matter of fact, this collection was¬†offered in limited edition only a few years back. I picked them because I was drawn to the beauty of this inspired AURORA BOREALIS teal design packaging. So preeetty!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AURORA EYESHADOW PALETTE, LE ($43)

This is a¬†stunning collection of six shades ranging from a pale highlight to a deep shimmery plum and midnight blue. The eyeshadows from left to right are Ivory Rose, Pink-Mauve, Violet while the second row are Taupe, Gold and Midnight Blue. The finish on these shadows range from matte to slightly iridescent look. They’re nice and bright but without been too much.¬† I love the color combination of this palette even it’s missing a Green shade. I can go from fairly neutral using taupe¬†and gold to party ready with the other darker shades (smoky eye).

Like most Lise Watier eye shadows, I found these a little tricky to work with as the shadows are hard and not very buttery. The pigmentation is decent though and I really like the richness of the colors. But let me know in the comment if you like to see a separate full review post on this palette with color swatch.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AURORA IRIDESCENT Duochrome eyeshadows ($25)

The colors of these sumptuous powders, embedded with glittering micro-particles, change as they catch the light.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One word: WOW! Glittering hints of green emerge from the teal. Did you see that? This is so cool don’t you think?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A different effect you see here Рa coppery highlights appear in the violet shade. I’m in LOVE with the colors of the collection, especially this violet duochrome!

I wanted to mention that the packaging is not only cute but it’s also luxe to have. Lise Watier think of everything and even for¬†a single eyeshadow pot, the packaging comes with¬†a decent size mirror¬†which I really appreciate.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A close-up look of the products. I have here a color swatch I picked directly from the pot. Can we just take a few moments to admire these beauty and the glittery effect. Look how insanely pretty the finely milled these glitters are. I  want to put it out there that the texture is not buttery or silky soft but it blends out beautifully on the lids. You can wear this product wet or dry.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Color swatches of the shades Violet and Teal with just one swipe.

You can layer¬†it off to get your desire effect. I’ve been into spring color lately and this Violet shadow is calling my name. I decided to create a one shadow eye look today without any eye primer. For this look, I’m using my finger tips to apply the shadow. Honestly, you don‚Äôt really need a brush when applying them. That‚Äôs how good they are.

Another thing to point out is there’s only very little fallout from these glitters and I didn’t see any creasing from it.¬†If you like to see how I created my¬†#EOTD, click the link to my¬†instagram.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AURORA IRIDESCENT EYELINER ($22)

This one comes in a beautiful deep red-purple called Aurora and contains finely milled glitter. I never have this color eyeliner before so I was very excited to try it out when I first got it

A long wear¬†liquid eyeliner with the fine tip brush of my dreams. I love brush liners as they’re quite uncommon, but nothing gives a fine line like them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This eyeliner swatches really nicely, but on, this liner was not nearly as pigmented as I hoped. The color is pretty¬†but due to¬†the iridescent glitter this makes the formula a little chunky.¬†I don’t think it’s terribly bad of an eyeliner but I personally would enjoy it more if it’s not glittery and thus more pigmented.

Comment below what is your favorite part of the collection? I love to hear what you think.
