Spring Must Haves – Beauty & Fashion

 

Hey guys! Wanna know what products I’ve been loving and thought you might want to check them out for Spring Must Haves? Then let’s skip the introduction and jump straight into the gist of it. Since we’ve been blessed with such beautiful spring like weather last two weeks, I’ve been out and about shopping at my favorite store. So I picked up a few things that I really like!

Sprung into Spring

Let’s talk about BEAUTY¬†for a starter.

Lancome Veris in Lovve

I’m a Lancome addict and¬† when I saw this¬†Lancome Vernis In Love Nail Polish¬†at Winners when I went shopping two weekends ago, I was overjoyed to find this hidden gem.

Lancome Nail Polish

I’m loving the formula and the color which I have in the shade Douceur Vanillee.¬†It’s not to thick nor thin, and the color is just amazing. It looks great and classy which I really like. It’s an everyday color that I can wear it the whole time. It stay well and haven’t chip even after day 5.

Douceur Vanille #Lancome

Not to mention the brush applies easily and my nails being fully covered in 2-3 strokes. It’s buildable for a more opaque finishing.¬†For about $19 (CAD) per bottle this worksas good as the Deborah Lippmann nail polish. I’d say it’s on par. You got to try this! It’s really that amazing!

FASHION

Rockport Clog Shoes

Shoes –¬†Well, you see I don’t live near Winners so that¬†days of picking up a few new affordable pieces for my wardrobe at every change of season are over. But whenever I got the chance to shop there, I like to go a little crazy with my shopping spree.

If you know me, then you know I love almost everything leather. I find them to be really durable and long lasting. This especially holds true when it comes to footwear materials. So when I saw this beautiful Red Rockport Clog Sandals, I know I’ve to get it for good measure. No, really I picked this up because they made the most comfortable shoes. I’ve a few pairs in the past and they haven’t let me down. This slip on sandal is easy to wear with almost anything, from denim to hot pants or summer dresses. Well, at least that’s how I’d wear them.

You see, I also wanted to pair it with my red bag as seen below. I feel like I’m going to be wearing this combo for the rest of the year!

This could be the most comfortable sandals ever and I’ve been really loving it!

Lauren Ralph Lauren Corssbag

Bag – when I said I splurge a little on my bag collection. I mean it! One of my mini goal this year is to be a more I guess aware consumer. I used to be someone who if I see something I like, I don’t too much about it and if I can afford it I’ll just buy it but I want to be a shopper where I’m a little more conscious about the environment.¬† I want to make sure that the things that I’m buying is going to be used for a very long time even if that means I’m paying a higher price tag for it. If it’s something of quality and will last me for a good while, I would rather do that.

Inside Lauren Ralph Lauren bag

So,¬† picked up this adorable Lauren Ralph Lauren Crossbody Bag¬†that’s red and it’s screaming my name. Regular price tag is for $110 but I’m paying a reduced price at $69.99 which is quite a steal, don’t you think!¬† It’s of 100% leather material and was made in Indonesia. It’s perfect to wear as a crossbody bag or on the shoulder as shared on my Instagram post. I really love the good compact size of this bag. It can store cellphone, coins, cash and so many other things in it. So many compartments for cards and there’s also a pen holder just in case. They think of everything even to the smallest detail which I truly appreciate.

Closed up look #RalphLauren

It’s like a wallet but with a strap on it and suprisingly roomy on the inside. The long strap is adjustable and I really like the cute heart shape on gold metal zipper and hardware.¬†I’m loving x10 with this crossbody bag.

So those are some of the stuff that’s a must have for Spring. Definitely make sure you check them out.¬†Leave me a comment down below and tell me what products you like me to try this Spring!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and read. You can find me online on my social media and if you’d like to get notification of a new post, you can follow me on my blog post.

Beauty Review & Swatches – Sephora

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But first, if you haven’t already seen my earlier Sephora Paintly Pink Unboxing, here’s a little run down of what to expect and there are four which I’m so excited to talk about today. If you want to know more, keep on reading until the end and I’ll explain all.

Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Color in French Kiss

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I always wanted to try Laura Mercier products and I was super excited when I got this in this Paintly Pink Box and it’s a full size 0.12 oz. Oh¬†Sephora!¬†You just made my day, so thank you. All the products here are all premium as well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a closed up look of french kiss. Look how amazing the color is and let me tell you guys, the packaging is everything. Just look at that – isn’t it gorgeous or what! Comes in a rectangle shape packaging that looks¬†so luxe!

This is a beautiful fuchsia Velour Lovers Color Lipstick in French Kiss. It’s so creamy, smooth and soft.¬†It feels lightweight on lips and the formula is amazingly. Very comfortable on lips. I also love the velvety finishing look. So, love this!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The pigmentation is so amazing. Super easy to glide on lips and love the staying power. I’m wearing it today and I feel super gorgeous! Yes, I know (hahaha!)

Pros: Packaging, Pigmentation, Color pay-off, Comfort, Longevity, Finish, Amazing fuchsia shade
Cons: Price a little expensive on regular size tube (CAD$34)

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pressed Rose Gold 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hmm.. I don’t remember having a Becca makeup products before and not to mention ever playing with their shimmery skin perfector. Yes, I’m such a dork! But, I don’t care. I’m just thrilled to get¬†to play with it since I’ve been eyeing on it for a solid good year.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The color I got is in Rose Gold. I noticed there isn’t any scents to¬†it, which is good. I like that! This pressed formula is really smooth and the pigmentation – Oh Nelly! It’s just glorious! It’s so so pretty with just one swipe I applied for highlight. They really mean business when it comes to highlight, I tell ya’. Love it so so much. And a little goes a long way.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Amazing color payoff and I couldn’t resist not to reach it. And look how cute the round packaging is!

I kid you not, you really have to try this. Ask for sample or swatch it at the nearest Sephora near you. Don’t take my word for it – just go and do it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Awesome Color Pay-off, High Shine Finish, Nice shade
Cons: None

Make Up Forever Artist Plexi Gloss 202

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was so happy to get this lip gloss and had been reaching out for it the last few weeks. If you follow me on Instagram, you should probably had seen me posting it there. Let me know what you think in the comment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a lovely coral that is noticeable on the lips but not over the top.

It comes in a doe foot shape applicator that’s flexible on the tip end. Really like this ingenious idea. The applicator take up the product with ease and it applies very well on lips. I find the formula to be quite pleasant and it didn’t bother me that much as a lip gloss. It gives a sheer glossy finish look that make lips fuller and sexier!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Awesome pigmentation, lovely formula. Easy to blend doe foot applicator, dewy and plumpy finish. It has good lasting power for a gloss but it is rather thick and a bit sticky which helps it last longer, if that make sense.
Cons: Price might be the downside 

Deborah Lipmann Nail Polish in Baby Love

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love the cute packaging.¬†It has this¬†luxury look that’s pleasing to the¬†eyes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As for application, they are surprisingly smooth. I wore this nail polish for more than a week wit 3-4 coats and I’m quite impressed with the staying power.

I’ve seen this brand and did color swatches at Winners (Canadian retail stores) before but none of the shades actually calls to me and especially the glitters ones.

But I really like this Baby Love shade though. I love that it makes my nails looks so flattering as though as they’re¬†my nails but better¬†!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Love the color,  long lasting up to 7-10 days (with 3-4 coats) 
Cons: Most overpriced, sheer finishing (but layering up will make nails look  so pretty) 

I would definitely pickup a few fall colors to my collection when they’re on sale. As much as I love the formula and staying power, I wouldn’t pay $20 for a nail polish. That’s just my opinion.

Overall, I really like what I got in my Paintly Pink Sephora Favorites box. I’m very impressed and satisfied with the products I got.

I’m sure all the above-mentioned product brands are works by whoever¬†the teams have been behind¬†their own¬†products, they’ve definitely done the brand justice. The prices reflect the quality of the products and the brand name they carry, so yes, they are expensive but in my opinion – it’s still worth the investment.

This concludes today’s review and swatches. I hope you find this post helpful and your enjoyed it.

As usual, thank you very much for stopping by. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Bye for now!

NOTD- Dual Dots

 

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good weekend so far… I can’t believe¬†we’re already into July summer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, this is what I came up with!¬†It’s the first time I’ve done something other than just a solid color. Don’t judge me, alright!¬†I’m¬†NOT a nail art expert by any means! As if painting an intricate design with my left hand isn’t hard enough… what happens when the masterpiece chips? wahh! Anyway, I stick to basic stuff.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got a great a Wet n Wild Wildshine in Black Creme from Walmart not too long ago and The Face Shop Basic Original Nail Polish in WH005 over the weekend you probably would have seen me posted it on my Instagram, by the time you read this post, it would be a few weekend back.

Believe me when I told you that I’ve always wanted to pick up a Black nail polish and I finally pick this one up.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First I did three coats of the Face Shop in WH005. I like the formula for it dried very quickly. Then I used the Wet n Wild in Black Creme for the dots. I tried these with a toothpick for the smaller dots and the back end of an eyeshadow brush for the larger and it works nicely.

I find the Face Shop formula is very sheer. So, you need to layer up several coats to get to medium finishing. For this look I was using 3 coats to get a decent opaque. It’s lasted for 3-4 days without chipping. Note that – I didn’t wear base and top coat at all.

All in all, I’m quite happy with the results of this NOTD. What do you think? Not too bad, right!

Do you get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest? Which one would you choose to paint your nails? The tricky or simple part? I love to hear your comments below.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ll see you again on the next one! Bye!

Sharon xoxo
