Walmart Beauty Haul & Review

 

Hey guys! What would you do if you’re a beauty addict! Beside shopping online, admittedly I also have a thing or two of shopping in brick and mortar stores. My doctor advises me to walk more and to go out more, so shopping is sort of my way to¬†exercise.

My walk ended at Walmart beauty aisle and finding the satisfaction to feed my addiction of buying more makeup products. Seriously this has to stop or someone has to send me to some beauty rehabs. LOL!

But since it’s too late for that, I might as well show you guys what I picked while I was there.

Ever since I saw this on the internet I’m obsessed with getting the new Infallible Paints Eyeshadow by L’Oreal Paris. I grabbed a few shades from their collection to share it for¬†you guys.

But the color that spoke to me the most are Navy Yard and Sunset Fire. The pink, coral and orangy shades definitely scream spring while the navy blue could be used on the outer corner or a dramatic bold look. I’m so glad to have the chance¬†to play with these lovely colors.

L’Oreal Infallible Paint Eyeshadow is a new double-ended cream eyeshadow stick that contains two shades which can be mixed, matched, or worn individually that launched with the L‚ÄôOreal Spring 2017 Collection. It’s¬†a cream shadow format very similar concept as the lip color/lip paint.¬†Frankly,¬†I really like the creamy texture and the finishing.

The packaging is quite nice as it holds two shades each of which has its own sponge applicator for applicator. The shades are complimentary to each other but a little difficult to wear together at times. The creamy formula is little bit runny consistency that makes blending so easy. When it comes to pigmentation, I think they’re doing alright. The color¬†doesn’t have the best pigmentation but it’s totally buildable for best results.

I want to conclude that the wear is fantastic and I think oily lid users will be quite happy. The color didn’t fade nor did it crease in a 8 hour period that I wore them (some days I had a shade on for 10 hours). They also remove easily which is also nice.

Moving on, I’ve yet another product from L’Oreal and it’s the Visible Lift Blur Blush. I’ve heard of this from beauty gurus and finally jumped on the bandwagon. I’ve the shade Soft Peach which I believe is the first shade from this line. The setback is that you only have 3 color choices to pick.

I might say that it’s lightweight and almost¬†mousse-like texture to it. On application, I feel it has those silicon-y texture¬†close to a face primer. It’s so easy to apply and perfect for spring/summer beach vacation. A little goes a long way with this blush. Just a little squeeze is all you need to apply on your cheekbones.

As much as I like this lightweight and easy to blend blush, let me just say this blush doesn’t come entirely cheap. I paid $16.99 for this bad boy.

Okay, I promise this is the last product from L’Oreal in this haul. It’s not a new product but on contrary it’s a product that has been around for awhile and I keep collecting them till this day. I’m not doing a review on the Color Infallible Eyeshadow since I’ve done that over in my older post which I’ll put a link here.

I’ve been obsessed with Sally Hansen‘s Miracle Gel Color Coat¬†for the past few months. So without a doubt, I went back to pick up two more shades which I really like. I got them in the shades Camo Queen and Twiggy. Speaking from my experience, Sally Hansen’s miracle gel completely ticks all the boxes for me. They’ve a huge color selection which is a plus in my book. I like that it’s quick and easy to apply and furthermore, there’s a¬†nice thick brush that comes with it.

I was excited to try the color Twiggy the moment I got home. I shared a picture of my #NOTD on my Instagram if you like to check it out.

I don’t have a gel lamp at home but happy to say¬†that¬†I’ve¬†them on my fingers for the last 5¬†days and still going strong¬†without any chip.¬†They looked absolutely gorgeous and lasted fairly well as far as nail polish with me goes! I’m usually fairly messy and not the best at painting my own nails but I found the size and thickness of the brush is perfect for covering the whole nail with minimal product getting onto my skin. For this look, I’m wore¬†two coats and it comes out quite opaque. Loving this Miracle Gel polish, I didn’t what I was missing then.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With summer drawing near also means vacation time for us here. I’ve a few short trip planned this summer. This spring/summer-like weather made me want to run out for a fresh mani and pedi. I just love having a pretty set of freshly painted fingers and toes!

Then¬†I saw¬†this Nail Polish Remover Wipes by Avanti¬†which I think will come quite handy because when it comes to removing nail polish, the process becomes considerably less fun especially when I’m on the road.¬†I’m also a sucker for cute and unique packaging so this comes right home with me.

It¬†holds 30 wipes and it’s acetone free whichever that means. It’s my first time trying it so I’m guessing the formula with non-acetone is less harsh on the¬†nails but then again I could be wrong.

unnamed (1)

Last but not least is a random product I purchased by impulse. I just couldn’t resist the cute packaging and design. I justify it by finding a good home for my pills. Look how pretty the blue diamond is on this silver container. I’m obsessed with everything in silver! It’s a win-win!

L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hours Eyeshadow

 

Can we just take a minute to admire these eyeshadows?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you caught my previous posts, there is a repeat here. But this post features all of the testing I’ve tried¬†to date.

Take a look!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My first impressions was, I literally couldn’t stop staring… if I could frame these, I would.

The shades from left to right:  Bronze Divine, All Night Blue & Metallic Lilac

Continue reading the review, color swatches and eye makeup look

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you might have heard from some of my raves I do have love for these eyeshadows by L’Oreal Paris and I¬†absolutely have the need to collect them all. Don’t judge me, I’m strange, I know! lol. The colors are irresistible!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s see if you need this one.

Oh yes, yes! Get it. You really could choose a different look for every day of the month if you wanted to.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the color swatch of Metallic Lilac I did without primer and with just one swap on bare arm. Look how insane the pigmentation and shimmer of this shadow. I notice the problem with highly pigmented shadow is the blending part. You definitely need an eye primer or eye base when working with very pigmented shadows in general. If you catch my drift.

At first I was sort of disappointed with the color pay of, it wasn’t as much as I thought it would be since they looked so vivid in the packaging and the swatches were so pigmented. But I ended up getting by brush damp and then dipping it into the shadow to get more color which seemed to do the trick. With that said, I would still recommend using a primer to forgo the hassle of the water situation. Note that this product allows wet or dry applications.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is great on its own or paired with a more matte neutral. It applies so smoothly and beautifully, like most of the Infallible shadows and it wears well all day. Beautiful color payoff on All Night Blue. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shimmer isn’t too OTT (over the top) & definitely doesn’t look cheap. I like the stopper packaging.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L’Oreal claims that it is an unstoppable waterproof shadow. The¬†shimmery¬†finishing of this shadow is less apparent than the Metallic Lilac. The color is very pretty no doubt about that. Perfect if you love to work on smoky or dramatic effect look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The name Bronze Divine¬†could be referred to as¬†golden bronze! ¬†The formula is really nice. Smooth and nicely pressed in the jar. Amazing¬†pigmentation¬†with a nice¬†metallic edge that’s not too shimmery¬†nor¬†not too frosty.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But don’t get me wrong, I really like this shadow.¬†The color is outstanding – one of those shades that works so well entirely on its own.¬†Overall, these three shades are¬†a keeper and I‚Äôve considered a possible back up of the Bronze Divine. It‚Äôs a gorgeous shade that compliments brown eyes wonderfully well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

24hr? Ehhh maybe if you primed the daylights out of your eyes and used a ton of setting spray. 8-10hr day? Yes, most definitely. Absolutely worth every single penny.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My biggest ‚Äúcon‚ÄĚ for this product (especially Metallic Lilac)¬†is¬†that the shadows have glitter specks in them. While it makes your eyes look pretty, the glitter found it‚Äôs way to lot‚Äôs of places on my face which then made me have to do some ‚Äúpost shadow‚ÄĚ damage control. I would suggest doing your eyes before applying face products.

Would I purchase this product again? Yes, I would!¬†I highly suggest grabbing it if the con I just mentioned doesn’t make you cold feet!

Here is how I got the look

Thanks so much¬†for taking the time to read. I‚Äôll see you again on the next one ūüôā

Wednesday Drugstore Epic Beauty Snag|L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow

Alright, this is going to be a picture heavy post, prepare yourself ūüôā

L'Oreal Infallible Color Eyeshadow

Remember in my previous post where I mentioned that I’ll be repurchasing the L’oreal Color Infallible eyeshadow. Well,¬†I gave in to the L’Oreal Color Infallible eyeshadows since I’ve good experience with this one.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Normally CAD10.49 at Uniprix, this week they are CAD3.99 each in the liquidation box depending on the drugstore. I almost wanted to get the whole display lol, came home with Sahara Treasure. I don’t really need anymore eyeshadow but I’m hooked. You can judge me and¬†I don’t care.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In the picture is the Sahara Treasure but there are a lot more on the website, 22 colors to be precised. This eyeshadow give impressive color intensity. The texture is velvety soft and smooth. It has a gorgeous shimmer finish. What if I tell you that this infallible could give you a 24 hour long-lasting hold? Awesome right!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the sturdy packaging. There is black cap cover inside the jar to press down and keep the formula intact.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just look how glorious the pigmentation! I’m loving it by the second lol.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Closed up look on the color swatch. I love how this Sahara Treasure shown directly from the pot on swatch and similar effect on the lids. One word I could think of is Amazing!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can see that I’ve already put it¬†in test runs a few times. The color of Bronzy Gold shimmery shadow is gorgeous, you could get it to stay on the lids as long as you¬†put an extra work in prepping the lids. Easy to blend with pretty shimmery finish. I really love this shade for it versatility to work with any colors mix.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For this look, I apply the eye base by Evelyn Lona on the lids to brow bone. Then I use the L’Oreal Color Infallible on the lids to the crease. Next, I used the Quo Must Have Eyes Incontournables in the Darkest Blue on the outer corner and inner corner for more definition. Then, with L.A. Color liquid eyeliner on lash line and falsies.

That’s it for this week’s epic beauty snag and I hope you enjoyed reading and find this post interesting. I highly recommend it to you. Until next Wednesday, stay beautiful!

Have You Ever Wonder? Maybelline …

 

Hey guys!

Could this be a real dream? Let me share with¬†you whether it is or is not. I’m super excited.

Dream wonder maybelline                                             maybelline dream wonder texture

Dream Wonder foundation was launched recently sometime last June of this year and was an Insta-stir. Its unique featherweight, silky texture and dry-oil texture gives the most natural foundation finish ever. Best of all it comes in 12 beautiful shades to pick.

It comes with a dropper that allows foundation to drop on the finger or hand for blending purposes. This formula absorbed and sets very quickly, so blending with fingers is much better than using foundation brush.

color swatch dream wonder

 (Color swatch) Dream Wonder liquid foundation in 85 Sun Beige (net wt: 20 ml)

Just look at its consistency. Incredibly smooth and easy to blend. It has medium coverage and it sets in seconds giving a natural and beautiful finish look.

sets in dream wonder

The texture looks very much the same as of L’oreal Magic Nude¬†Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup which was launched last fall. As you may know that Maybelline is owned by¬†L’oreal Paris. Dream Wonder has the similar¬†formula with it’s predecessor¬†which means there have¬†these two different brands that catered to demographic group and price¬†point.

I paid $12.99 for this bottle at Targetl. I love the shade that suits me and with the awesome natural looking skin, I will definitely repurchase it¬†again. I would¬†recommend it for I find this foundation very easy to use and it’s so lightweight as if not wearing the foundation at all. No wonder,¬†it is a dream come true! ūüôā

What’s your take on this most talked Dream Wonder foundation? I love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading.

Visible Lift Smooth Absolute by L’oreal

Happy Saturday friends!

Today, I really wanted to talk about foundations. I have been trying many different foundations and some had successfully becomes my favorites. I picked this L’oreal lift smooth foundation because it was on discounted price and I really like the nice packaging.

l'oreal visible lift smooth absolutel'oreal visible lift

It has a silky brush attached to the bottle and dispense the formula¬†while twisting the base. The brush makes it quite handy to bring anywhere but the cons¬†is¬†that it’s difficult to clean the brush after used. Meaning after a few uses¬†it might becomes gunked-up brush that gives streaky application the next time.

foundation brush 170 natural beige

The liquid formula will ooze out from the brush¬†after a few twisting and turning on the base. Then¬†I just apply it directly onto my skin and blended it with the brush.¬†This formula goes evenly. It gives a nice dewy finish that’s soft, luminous but not shinny. It’s good for all skin type except oily skin.¬†My skin does feels light and the finishing was incredible. Love this product.

This foundation has a medium coverag but yet what’s impressive is that it’s feels so skin-like. The good news is that it can be built up to full coverage without looking cakey and depending on how much to apply.¬†It so lightweight and seems like not wearing any foundation at all.

There were eight¬†impressive shades from fair to medium to pick. It has a long lasting wear¬†for hours without it turning orange and there’s not sign of fading when wearing this foundation. It’s selling for $15.95 online.

I would recommend it to anyone who loves the feeling of skin-like foundation on their skin. I have tried many different foundations and I really love this one.

Have you tried any drugstore foundations which pleasing to you?

Thank you for reading.

opi nail polish Opi nail lacquer
OPI Nail Lacquer Nagellack in NL908 Front Lawn¬†/ OPI Nail Lacquer Nagellack in NLT34 Uh-oh, Roll Down the window –¬†why am I choosing a bright color shade of greens? Hmm… well, for one thing is that I love green.¬† From green sweater to green macha tea and same goes for nail polishes. So, I can’t turned away from these two evergreen colors. The darker shade of Uh-oh, reminds me of autumn and¬†therefore it’s more like a treat for me. Review coming soon!
nyx lip cream vichy retinol sample
NYX Extreme Lip Cream in 05 Bonfire – first of all, I have to admit that this is the first time I picked up a lip cream from NYX.¬†I’m at awe at this 2 in 1 combo, with¬†lipstick and lip gloss combined. Added with this insanely¬†pigmentation all in one. Oh my gosh! How awesome can it get? That’s a bonus point for this awesome lip cream. Love the sweet candy scents. The color choices are a little bit limited compared to¬†the¬†Extra Creamy lipstick. It has 11¬†shades in all. The price is reasonably priced and it’s great value for money.
Vichy Liftactiv Retinol HA Concentrate – well I got this as a freebie after purchasing some makeup products from my local drugstore. It’s a new generation wrinkle filler treatmentas stated at the back of the packaging.¬†To be used daily in the morning on clean face and neck. One thing for sure is that¬†the formula¬†smell nice.
l'oreal glossy balm
L’oreal Glossy Balm in 250 Baby Berry – lovely color berry to keep chap lips away. The truth is that I was not really a lip gloss person but I have been recently since after trying the Smashbox Santigolden Hot Lava lip gloss, I’m hooked to lip gloss and lip balm. So, I have been picking up quite a bit of lip balms for the past few weeks where you will see in my other blogs. This l’oreal glossy balm looks very similar to Revlon Colorstay lip¬†balm stains¬†in crayon style packaging. I will be trying this out for review. It claims to¬†have¬†long lasting wear and gives a high dose of pigmented shine, smooth and conditioning to keep lips soft.
revlon neon nail art
Revlon Nail Art Neon in 12 Neon Light – oh wow! this is a nail polish that I must have. It has 10 bright funky shades. It’s like the starburst¬†or skittles candy which is so yummy. So, that’s how I felt when I pick this up. I haven’t try this yet and so, I’ll post it on my next blog where I’ll do a mini home-manicure.
nyx lipstick
NYX Extra Creamy Round ¬†Lipstick in 536 EROS – bright coral red creamy lipstick. On the website it says that this lipstick is mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvety texture and it resists¬†wear and¬†smudging.¬†It’s a go-to lipstick. They have a jaw-dropping color shade selections¬†which will¬†fit anyone’s color taste. I personally love the consistency of this creamy and velvety finish. It glides wonderfully and love the bright color of red. I’m sure by now, many of you know that I’m a real big fan of red lipsticks. So, NYX lipsticks are one of my favorite drugstore brand.

That’s it for this week’s beauty haul and I know that I will have a long backlogged of reviews, I’m trying to get done as much as I can. So, I’ll have a new post up tomorrow ūüôā

What is your favorite color nail polish from OPI?

For now, will chat with you later, lovelies !

Thanks for reading.

Best 5 Fall Color Lippies

Hi beauty junkies, standing proudly is my 5 favorite fall color lippies. Yay!!! shopping at Target again to get three more lipsticks in a darker shades for fall and also to wear it for halloween.

5 fall color lippies

Normally, I have hard time looking for a dark color lipsticks for fall that will look nice on me. Fortunately, this time round, I seems to be able to find a few which I really like. Is it because I got more brave to try darker colors or maybe there were more color selections available that works for me. Either way, I’m happy to get a few.

fall dark color lipstickstop 5 fall color swatch lippies

These are my Best 5 fall color lippies, from left to right: (not in particular order)

NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in 511 CHAOS

Revlon Super Matte Lustrous Lipstick in 646 Sultry Sable

Maybelline Color Sensational  in 160 Fifth Ave Fuchsia

L’oreal Color Rich Serum¬†in 503 Bright Burgundy

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 11

I also make the color swatches and see how pigmented and mositurized these beauties. I always love red color lippies but these darker shades really is something else. Let me see how I like it!

nyx lippy

NYX in 311 CHAOS. I love NYX lippies especially with their huge selections of fun colors to choose from. Is the selections jaw-dropping? You bet! This is my second NYX lippies and I’m definitely going for more. Got to get them all! (Pokemon song). I fell in love with its rich pigmentation. Amazingly velvety and creamy texture. Love the color-payoff. It’s soft and glides so smoothly. Ohhhh!!! So¬†incredibly awesome color.

revlon lipstick

Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks are my best friend. I love love, love it. I have¬†many collections of Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks and got hooked¬†by its’ dark plum¬†shade. The color is intensely beautiful. I love the pigmentation and the long wear effect. It’s soft and creamy. So, be dazzled with its dazzling array of fabulous shades. I can’t stop to wanting more colors to be¬†added to my collections.

maybelline lippies

This is my first encounter with Maybelline lipstick. I was amazed by the color shades options. I have another jaw-dropping moment seeing so many shades to choose and when I checked on their website they have but 62 shades, that’s insane! Or well my first purchase. I love other Maybelline makeup products and I always wanted to get the lipsticks. So, now I’m a proud owner of Fifth Ave Fuchsia lippy. Yay!!! The creamy formula is amazing and so is the smell of this lipstick. I wanted to pick a darker color but this one is irresistable. So, instead I got this and have been wearing it the whole day. Will I be hooked with Maybelline’s lippies? Time will tell.

l'oreal lippes

L’oreal lipstick in Bright Burgundy is my next choice of fave. I had L’oreal lippies for ages but this is a new one that I’m going to give it a shot. It says it has serum in this formula. Serum! Don’t feel any different except moist and sheer finish. Is it just me or do I always happened to picked up sheer finish lipstics? Some of you may know that I love creamy and velvety lipsticks. As for sheer, I’ll get around with it. The color in the packaging does looked dark but when I did my color swatch, it looks more nude than burgundy! As for the moisture, you bet it’s moist and I felt it’s a bit tacky at first. It doesn’t have color depth though. This lippy does smells good. It’s be good to wear when the weather gets dryer.

kate moss lippies

Kate Moss lasting lipstick by Rimmel. This No 11 is a special dark red dark lipstick.¬†After admiring myself with this lip color ont he mirro. I do conclude that this¬†color shade look perfect on me. I like it very much especially the velvety texture. It¬†has matte and soft finish. It has a swell fragrant smell on it.¬†It has 10 sexy shades to select. For the price, I will go for more especially with such great value and quality. I like the No 9 too (in violet shade). Perhaps, I’ll pick¬†it up on my next trip to Target.
What is your favorite fall color lippies? Please share and leave comment below. Love to hear from you.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Visible Lift¬ģ Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup SPF17

Visible Lift¬ģ Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup SPF 17 DSC00943

Today, I’m going to give my overview of this L’oreal Visible Lift Foundation which I have been using for quite sometime. I remembered, I got this fabulous foundation awhile ago and it was on special. I paid half price of $19.00(1.0 fl oz) for it. Well, after minutes of digging and almost turning the bin upside down (just kidding!). I was so glad that I found my skin shade (Hurray!!!). And yes! I got mine in Honey Beige (No. 155). Perfect color tone for me.

loreal visible lift color swatch

There were twevlve color shades available and ranges from lightest to darkest shades.¬†The darkest shades will suit more likely for the medium skin tone. Can be purchased online at http://www.lorealparis.ca or at your L’oreal counter store.

I wore it this morning and are very excited to give my first thought about it. Mind you, this foundation felt so lightweight and smooth. I love it. The texture is slightly thick but soft. It has a silky texture and exceptional blending ability. It has medium coverage that was able to cover most of my uneven skin. I started by applying moisturizer first and then proceeded to applying the foundation. Putting moisturizer as a base is important for someone who has dry skin. This product seems to cater more for normal to oily skin person. I just dispensed with one pump of the foundation on the back of my hand and apply them with my fingers. It blends very well and set in pretty fast.

Here is¬†my photo shots taken The “Before” L’oreal Visible Lift foundation and “After” with makeup and the amazing foundation.

after 11 hours look with foundation

Photo taken after wearing the foundation for 11 hours.¬†I can still see my eyeshadows and¬†maybe a little bit of ¬†some shine on my T-zone area and¬†that’s about it.¬†¬†I¬†see¬†that my face still looked fresh and this foundation is so long lasting, except for¬†my lips of course. I didn’t do any touched up at all. I’m amazed!

On their website, they claimed that this¬†Visible Lift Serum Absolute –¬†features an age reversing serum of 5 ingredients in 1 luminous makeup. This new makeup instantly evens skin tone with a luxuriously lightweight formula that doesn’t settle into lines and wrinkles.

Okay, let’s not get too excited.¬†First of all, no makeup foundation is age-reversing, not even a second. Well, I didn’t buy it because it’s age-reversing but it does make me feel fresh and less fatigue.

I also love the bottle packaging that comes with a pump applicator. A little goes a long as the saying goes. Great product with great value for money.

Let me know on the comment below. Do you have an everyday foundation? What are some of your favorite shades and brand?

Thank you for reading!

Maybelline NY Color Tattoo cream gel shadow ~ Painted Purple (No.20)

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr

Purple eyeshadow? Anyone? Well, I always ended up choosing purple color eyeshadows everytime I shop. Purple seems to attract my attention more somehow. So, I got drawn to get this painted purple in No. 20. I must have this lovely vibrant cream gel shadow to my collections.  Color choice is a little bit limited. There were only 6 color shades to choose from.

What so special about this Color Tattoo is that it claimed to last for 24 hours. I wore it just by itself¬†for 8 hours and it does live to its claim¬†to be¬†long lasting.¬†It is not recommended to wear any eye makeup or cosmetic to sleep –¬†in my opinion. So, the 24 hours long lasting claim¬†is a bit of a stretch. I have to use more eye remover to clean¬†them.

I like the creamy and smooth texture of this product. It blends so easily and without creasing and the best thing is that I can use my fingertips for even blending. The price is  very affordable for the value of this product. The packaging makes it looks trendy and pretty.

So, for those who feels the need to wear something for a long lasting period of time, then I would recommend it simply because it lasts.

Has anyone of you have a favorite color eyeshadow that caught your very eyes everytime you shop for makeup?

Cheers!
