Oktoberfest ~ First Impression Revlon Age Defying, SPF20

Hey guys, October is all but here and with the dawn of the first full month of fall comes parties and celebrations! So, why not pull up our dancing boots and get ready for the big PARTY!!!

What is Oktoberfest? Well it was originated from Germany. It runs for the whole month through, with pints and pints of beers and eats in the cities.

I would like to share with you my thoughts on this Revlon Age Defying Cream foundation. I bought it about more than two weeks ago from Winners (Canadian retail chain store).  But you can also find them at Wal-mart, Target and drugstores. So, I gave a shot to try this foundation for a week now and then again this morning.

First of all, I like to say that this foundation has medium coverage with satin finish.¬†It’s easy to blend and has smooth texture. This foundation sets in qite fast. With the medium coverage it also allows for built-up¬†to full coverage without looking cakey.

The spiraled glass is hard to see the undertones of each shade. My advise is best to take advantage of the in-store tester if you can find them for the right shades. It’s very important to get foundation shade’s right. For tips on how to get the right color shade foundation, leave comment below.

I got this in #31 on Honey Beige (the 2nd last of the color shades). The set back of this foundation is that it has limited selection of color shades which is from Light to Medium only. Seven color shades to choose from only.

The shades might looked a little bit yellowish/orange-y but once it’s blended and sets, the color looks nice and pretty on skin. It is also fragrant free.

I love the texture, coverage and the pump packaging but the most exciting is, its formula provides UVA protection ~ SPF20.

In my opinion, this is a wonderful cream makeup foundation that I will use them again for everyday makeup look.

What is your color shade foundation from Revlon?

Thank you for reading.

Barley There vs Sparkling Miracle by Essence

essence lipsticks (2)

Hi guys, today I like to share with you these awesome lipsticks which I got from a local Shoppers Drug Mart. Just loved the high pigmented formula on each other of them. They glides on so smooth and nice. Oh yes, you can see on my next blog that I will post these lipsticks with other Essence products (my Under $5.00 High Street Beauty Must Haves!).

The color I picked up is in 06 on Barley There and this one is a long lasting lipstick as the tag says and in 12 on Sparkling Miracle Made in Germany.

I will start with this Sparkling Miracle lipstick. When I made the color swatch , I just loved the smooth glides and how pigmented it was. This is the first lipstick I saw¬†at the¬†Essence’s shelves until I saw this Long Lasting lipsticks which has much more color selections. I am sure that there were 10 different color shades available.

Anyways, this one that I got is moist and has lots of shimmer and glitter when I applied on swatch. It has a very sweet candy scents on this one that I purchased. The moisture doesn’t leaves my lips feeling tacky. But what I dislike about is the glittery ingredients which does bothers me a little bit. It’s just has too must glitter or blings. After I rubbed it off, it still leaves my mouth with glitters. For those who likes blings and glitters this lipstick may just be the right one for you.

On the other hand, I am more of a matte finish fans. I¬†like this¬†semi-matte nude lipstick finish. It’s like love at first sight. I can’ help but picked up two shades and going for more. It’s unbelievable soft and the colors were simply gorgeous. I has rich pigment and this is a high street lipsticks that I will be using for this coming winter. I just found out from their website that these long lasting lipstick is one of the product that will be discontinued. Oh! oh! I better hurry to pick a few more colors before it’s gone.

The price for these lipsticks were so affordable and imagine the quality that it offers. The one thing in common for these two lipsticks are¬†the prices and that these lipsticks doesn’t have leave color¬†stains except for the glitters. For me a few hours of long lasting¬†wear is good enough for me.

Did you owned any of Essence’s lipsticks? If yes which one and don’t forget to leave the comment below.

My next blog post will be <Under $5 high street beauty must haves> and <Friday Beauty Haul>!

Thank you for stopping by.
