Walmart Beauty Haul

 

Hey guys! What’s up you guys! Yes, I’ve started beauty shopping again after a while of winter hibernation. So, my first stop is at Walmart. I picked up a few interesting beauty products that I’m very excited to show you guys.

I don’t want this blog to be too long so let’s get started.

Wet n Wild Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette

When I first saw it at Emily Noel‘s youtube channel, I’ve been eyeing this since then. As this is Walmart’s exclusive line, I’m all over the moon when I saw it at Walmart. I grabbed these two lovely shades in Nude Awakening and Bare Necessities. Both have amazing color selections with one palette more matte and pinkish than the other.

Elf Blending Sponge 

If you’ve been following my blog you know that I’m a sucker for anything cute, so this is something that caught my eyes on the ELF‘s counter. I love a good blending sponge and I’m pretty excited to try out how this one fairs.

Maybelline Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation

I picked up this Maybelline Cushion foundation in the shade 20. I’m light to medium so, I’ll be trying out to do a color match and test on the formula. I’ve shared a photo of this cushion foundation on my Instagram when it first landed at my local drugstore. I wasn’t too sure if I need another cushion foundation since I still have and love my old favorite, the Physician formula ones. But last week, I decided to pick it up anyways since I feel like spendy and also to do a product review for you guys.

So, ya here it is.

As much as I love my cushion foundation by Physician Formula I thought it would be good to give this product a try. I’ve tried many of Maybelline‘s foundation before and I will have to say I liked them all and so I’ve high expectation on this one. Hope it won’t disappoint.

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation + Concealer 

The next product I got is also a foundation. Something is definitely wrong with me. It could be the weather, I don’t know. But as if one foundation is not enough, I picked another and this time it’s by Milani. This one I’ve justification since I’ve been wanting it the moment I saw it floating around the internet. So, when I saw  it at my Walmart, I’m like just take my money. I’m sold!

I got the shade in Medium Beige and I’m very excited to test out the color match and the performance of this foundation + concealer. You guys know that I’m not a very big fan of high coverage foundation because I prefer a natural look with BB Cream but I heard so many people raved about it and so I got to try it.

Milani Powder Blush

And I also picked up something that I’ve been longing to try from Milani since it was first launched. My Walmart doesn’t carry a huge collection of Milani’s makeup products and when I saw this available last week. I grabbed not only one but two of these cute blushes. And yes, it’s their Tea Rose Powder Blush and I also have the shade in Romantic Rose since they’re both so insanely pretty.

Purederm Deep Cleansing Peel-Off Mask (Cucumber)

When I saw this peeling mask, I told myself that I need it.I like the feeling of peeling dry glue when I was a kid and this brings me back to childhood time. There are 5 masks for $7.97 at Walmart. You can also find it on Amazon and Ebay. This product is made in Korea and it’s cruelty free.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy in Sheer Nirvana

Honestly, this is the most expensive nail polish I ever own from a drugstore brand. I saw Amelia Liana talking about the Gel Miracle polish in their Rustic Charm collection. But I decided to pick this Color Therapy line because I just adore this shade so much. I did a color swatch and #NOTD (on my instagram) if you care to check them out. The shade is so girly and pretty. Love, love it! Sheer Nirvana is such a summery color and I really don’t care what season to wear it. I can see myself wearing this over and over!

L’Oreal Doutzen Collection Exclusive in Douzten’s Nude

The last time I checked on the weather, I heard spring will come early this year. I’ve been seeing a lot of new spring color launched on the nails department that I makes me to check them out. Among other shades, this one calls out to me the most. I tried it at the counter and this is definitely my go to spring color nails. I really like this color. It’s a nice mauvy-nude that will be perfect for the season and also for office wear. If you want to see the color swatch, don’t forget to follow me on my instagram for updates.

L’Oreal Evercreame Sulfate-Free Intense Nourishing Shampoo

Last but not least, I’ve a hair product from L’oreal Hair Expertise and it’s their Evercreame Sulfate-Free Intense Nourishing Shampoo.

This shampoo smells amazing and the price is not too bad for a 8.5 fl oz products. I can smell the lovely fresh scents of camelina flower and it’s 100% vegan. It says here that it’s for dry to very dry hair. Well,  I don’t have a very dry hair now but I do have a thick hair. So, I’ll try this and will keep you guys updated if I like it.

So, that’s about it on my Walmart beauty haul this round and I’ll keep you posted on my new series of “Which one won?”. Don’t forget to stay tuned!

Let me know which product you like me do a review on first in the comment. I like to hear what you say.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope to see you again on the next one. Bye for now!

Tester Wednesday – Browvo! Conditioning Primer by Benefit

 

Hi  guys! How’s it going?

I’ve learnt over the years that apart from cosmetics and make up, a well-groomed set of brows has the amazing ability to frame your face and transform your features. It sounds crazy I know!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With the busy schedules and unlimited multitasking, and when you lack the time, just by taming a few stray hair with a holding gel and filling in the sparse areas with fuller brows instantly will give your face a more symmetrical appearance. Benefit Browvo Conditioning Primer did just that.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a conditioning gel that helps tame the bushy brows and sets it nicely. Well, I for one aren’t blessed with a pretty brows (sob!) to tell you the truth. Mine are sparse and I always have difficulty doing my brows. I’m so happy when I received this sample from Top Box to try on.

Very excited to try and here’s my two cents opinions.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Honestly, I was very skeptical when I got this  in my mail since this is my first time experiencing a brow primer from Benefit but now I’m totally coveted.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ways to use it :-

  1. Conditions brows instantly and or
  2. Use it as a brow primer

It comes in a cute rubber tip brush. They’re very soft and easy to work on. I really like how easy and fast the formula sets. A wonderful essential product in my book. I’ll definitely repurchase once I ran out of it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the packaging. It looks luxe and easy to The primer comes in a twist up pen that dispenses the product. You’ve to twist the bottom for a couple of times when it’s new to push out product to the surface. Is this not a cool design or what?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The product is a clear gel with a bluish tint while the applicator is of rubber bristles to help distribute the products. It applies creamy, sets dry, and doesn’t move until you decide to remove it. I love it on its own to tame and shape my brows, and as a primer it keeps everything in place. It also makes eyebrow pencil application so much easier. Definitely makes them look more full right away, and I have noticed my brow pencil stays on longer.

I couldn’t say enough, I need to mention again that I really like this product, works great as a primer and has been sort of working on growing in my brows. I’ve also been using it at night to help with brow growth. That’s how desperate I am wanting a nice thick brows.

Good job on this, Benefit!

I’ve naturally sparse brows as you can see on this photo (on the left).

This product is really awesome. I thought that I wasn’t going to like it but I love it so much I want to recommend it to all my friends. It’s a must have if you’re on the market for a brow product.

Photos shown the before and after effect with the primer. What do you think? Could you see the difference? Comment below.

Available at Sephora, Ulta, drugstores and Benefit website. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eyeshadow Quad – Review & Swatch

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been wanting to try Elizabeth Arden like forever.  And I finally decided to dive in and try this Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad.

In this post I’m going to be writing about a stunning eye palette, the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad – Posh Purples.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I purchased this Posh Purples by Elizabeth Arden  because it looks like many eye shadow colors that I own. It’s got a good color selection that I can reach for every time I feel like wearing purple eye makeup.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Other limited edition beautiful color eye shadow quad is in Golden Opulence and Chic Browns for US$40.00 online at Elizabeth Arden website.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This palette comes complete with a double-sided eye shadow brush with a decent size mirror in a sleek white compact that adorned with a glided plaque. Charming isn’t it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These colors are all gorgeous with flattering tones. You get two shimmery, one glitter and matte shadows. It’s quite versatile and that makes it easily to create any look you like.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When it comes to the texture of powders you can really feel the difference between high-street and high-end brands, although I do want to point out that high-street brands are catching up and very fast!

The packaging is super-cute and has a luxury touch about it plus all the colors are indeed flattering!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Can you all see the goodness of these eyeshadows in that pan?  Aaaaahhhh!!!

Another point worth mentioning is that the formula goes on smoothly and lasts all day and night. Amazing results when it comes to blending and buildable to the tone your desire. I would say it has quite a high-pigment color with a crease-resistant finish.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the color swatches on my bare arm. It’s there and it’s in full effect. Every time, I take a picture of a swatch with lighter shades, you barely see it but this pink glitter shadow (on the left) is so pretty. I wear it on my lids and brow bones for this look.

Posh Purples EOTD look without applying a primer where I used this palette to create the look above . The purple color formula is intense and has very good color payoff. Love it!

All in all, not bad at all I would say. It gave nice blended finish look and it’s really easy to bring anywhere you go in your purse.

Which of the Elizabeth Arden makeup products would you like to try?  Leave answer in the comments below. As always I love hearing from you so let me know what you think of this palette!
