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!

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!

Best Summer Drugstore Nail Polishes – Review & Swatches

 

When I saw these Sinful Colors nail colors collection at my local Pharmaprix (Shoppers Drug Mart) I couldn’t help but picked up a few of their spring-summer nail colors that caught my eyes. This is a collective best summer drugstore nail polishes which I’ve been wearing from spring through summer.

I believe I got some nail colors from my local Dollarama and also Walmart if I remember correctly. And¬†they’re like $1.50 and $2.00 a bottle depending where you got them. It’s for 0.5 fl oz of products. A fairly good amount for the price.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like sharing my NOTW (nail of the week) on my Instagram and other social media scheduled every weekend. If you’re curious to see my weekend¬†manicure or what color nails I’m wearing then hit here to go to my Instagram.

Okay, enough of me babbling and more serious talk.¬†I’ve¬†to say that Sinful Colors¬†makes really¬†good¬†nail polishes and I’ve been really impressed by it. I’ve tried many difference drugstore brands such as OPI, ESSIE, L’oreal, Wet n Wild and this seems to have the staying power on par with the rest. ¬†And what‚Äôs even better is that they’re¬†dirt cheap! You got to love the price tag.

Here is the instagram picture I took of the polish. This really doesn’t do it justice. It looks much better in person when sunshine glare isn’t interfering with seeing how rich this color is.

I was wearing a Purple and Fuchsia shades nail color, with an added finishing touch of Revlon in 441 Radiant. So what do you guys think? Comment below, alright!

Pros:

  • A wide color selection to choose from
  • Affordable price
  • Available in many drugstores
  • No streaking
  • Semi-transparent that can build up to complete opacity
  • Long staying power especially on the toes (stayed on for a month)
  • No chipping for a week

Cons:

  • Dries slowly
  • Needs a few coats to get the opacity finish

Recommend: Yes, you got to try them. I’ll be going back to pick up more shades for the¬†coming Fall. This wraps up my today’s best drugstore nail post which based on their quality and affordable prices.

Tell me which color have you collected from Sinful Colors collection line? I love to hear your comments.

New Bonne Bell Nail Lacquer – Review & Swatch

 

 

I spotted not only one but two of these pretty color nail lacquers two¬†weeks ago.¬†I have some¬†pictures and swatches for you. So, don’t go anywhere and continue strolling down.

Here is a closer look at them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a¬†new collection line from Bonne Bell and I’m super excited to share my thoughts and opinion on this post.

I picked up Honolulu and Key West nail lacquers from the Dollar store. They have a few variety of combinations but since I heard about their new nail polish I grabbed this one to try. Both are for $3.00 and they come with a cheap makeup purse. I threw the purse and keep the nail products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m so thrilled to see that these comes in a full-sized bottles. Happy to say that I’m quite impressed with the formula and the cute packaging.¬†I remember buying my first Bonne Bell’s eyeliner from a drugstore many years back¬†and I really like it. So, every time I see this brand in¬†a drugstore, I’d make a point to definitely check out their products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This polish was a bit sheer, but not terribly so. I needed two-three coats for what you see above.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is two coats of the nail lacquers.¬†I was actually surprised at how pretty¬†and I like how opaque it was. It’s not glowy, shimmery or glittery.¬†This polish was very easy to apply and it also dried VERY quickly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a look at the brush. I find the brush ¬†to be very nice. It’s cut very cleanly at the edge and the brush shape is flat, thin and wide. Helps apply the product easily.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

That purple¬†is gorgeous. I really like the purple better than the red (Honolulu finishing). Don’t get me wrong, I like the red but the purple has a great shine that I really like. And the color of¬†Key West is just¬†so pretty.

Last thing need to mention is, I have a feeling you‚Äôll be seeing more and more of this polish show up on my blog ūüôā

What have you picked up lately? Comment below.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read.

Hey guys! It’s a beautiful Saturday morning. The sun is out and birds flying back from South.

Honestly, I haven’t been feeling well and had recently been seeing by my doctor. Different medications were prescribed to help recover. I sometimes still that “laughter is the best medicine”.¬†(Okay this is just me trying to be Dr Sharon lol!)

Honestly, I don’t remembered when I actually picked up this wonderful Rich Raspberry color nail enamel (in No. 250). I believed I got it from Target where it was on special.¬†It’s a nice raspberry color shade which I like. They were like one of my favorite color of all time.
