Maison Jacynthe Naturally – Review & Photos

 

Many of you may have already know this, as a beauty blogger, a lot of companies will sent over new collections, new product my way so that I can try them out and potentially share them with you. And I’m very grateful for this because of course I wanted to create new contents all the time and share new products and it could be quite expensive if I’d have to do that all by my own.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a collaboration post where I partnered with Maison Jacynthe to make this post. It’s their new product collection which was launched not too long ago. I love natural products and I’ve been using their products on rotation for the last couple of months.

Alright, so let’s jump in.

Maison Jacynthe PR Samples
*Press Samples
Maison Jacynthe Liquid Foundation
Liquid Foundation

The first thing I got is the¬†Fluid Foundation Sable 02¬†and is retailed for a CAD$46 so it’s a pretty penny but so worth it. Available in 5 different colors to choose from.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was very excited to test out this Fluide De Teint (Fluid Foundation) and it’s the same shade that I’m in powder foundation in Sable. This comes in a pump and all of their products are natural and vegan. So this is also cruelty free in case you’re wondering.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My warning, is that a little goes a long way with this foundation. Start small!

The finish of the foundations is beautiful and they smell divinely good! It reminds me of BB cream formula in terms of consistency. It claims to hide skin imperfection with a natural finish which I agree with. It’s so easy to apply and buff it into skin. Love the natural and glowy looks it gives.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m quite impressed with the formula to be honest. I’ve combo to dry skin and this foundation makes my skin looks flawless. Not meaning to toot my own horn but I’ve been having good skin days for the past few weeks. I’m so happy this product doesn’t cause me any break out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s very sheer and lightweight foundation. You can built it up to a decent coverage but I wouldn’t say it going to give you medium to full coverage. If you’re looking for a medium to full coverage foundation, then this product is not for you. If you’re super oily, then you might want to set it with setting powder in order not to look super dewy or shinny. It has a decent staying power in terms of wearing it throughout the day.

Wearing fluid foundation by #Maison Jacynthe

It’s hot here with temperature standing at 28 celcius, it’s been quite humid over the past few days and so I find it works well with the weather and my skin situation when I applied setting powder to keep it from melt down. I’ve nothing bad to say about it and especially if you’re looking for a natural or cruelty free clean brand for a foundation. I do recommend it.

Maison Jacynthe Illuminator
Highlighter

The next product I want to talk about is this Highlighter in the shade 02 Pink Moon. I’ve been using this on my cheek, temples and as my brow bone highlight. It states that you can also apply it on the lips too.

It’s available in 2 colors and formulated with coffee and corn extracts, macadamia and apricot oil.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is my summer highlight glow that I’m talking about. Look how pretty it is! So beautiful iridescent highlight. It’s a gold pink color that you buff it in on your cheeks. It matches your skin when you buffed it in and then set it with setting spray. It adds some moisture to it and¬†give you an immediate healthy looking skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Can we take a moment to take it all in. How gorgeously pigmented is this highlighter! It feels buttery and silky to touch.

Those are my thoughts as far as this product goes. The highlighter stays put all day without fading down which is awesome. All in all, this is good stuff.

Maison Jacynthe Vingt Deux
Perfume

Last but not least, is the Vingt Deux Roll Perfume. I hesitate to talk about perfume in my blog because they don’t usually do so well on readerships but if there’s anyone out there that’s like me reading my post, maybe you’ll like this blog. I’m addicted to watching perfume videos online. I like to research and I like discovering new perfumes and even though it’s not everyone’s favorite post to read but maybe there are people like me in the world, if you’re then this post is for you.

Maison Jacynthe recently came out with her new Vingt Deux perfume. This was sent to me. It comes in a long tube design packaging and with wooden top lid. I really love the scent of this perfume smell. I love floral and woody scent that works really well with my body chemistry.¬†It’s described as sensual, delightful and languorous. I’ve been wearing this non-stop. I feel like I’m walking in the country side and breathing in some fresh and beautiful woody scents. It’s therapeutic to my mind and soul. I’m loving it!

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed hearing my opinion and seeing how these products works for me. I’ve some exciting things coming up, some fun stuff that I’ve been working on and I cant’ wait to show it to you. So, I’ll talk to you guys again a later post.

I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Colourpop Box Unboxing 2

 

Hi guys, in this post I’m going to do a box unboxing. I received this box a week after Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, it¬†didn’t arrived on time but it’s better late than never.

Here is the video unboxing of Colourpop’s box series #2.

I didn’t open the box because I wanted to share the excitement with you guys. You will see the original state of the box and how it looks like in this video.

It comes in a white cardboard box and the print¬†on the side says “Made In LA”. ¬†And it’s opened up a nice flower design with the Colourpop name on it. There’s a insert Mother’s Day greeting card for me which is so lovely. My hubby and son knows that I love makeup so this was a great surprise.

pressed shadows

The first 3 products are the Colourpop Pressed Shadows. I got it in the shade Outta Luck, Top Notch and last one is Let Me Explain. These are the eyeshadows that drew me the most. I don’t remember having any of these pressed shadows from Colourpop before and so I’m very excited to try them out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next, is the Mini Ultra Satin Lip in the shade London Fog (a cool-toned blue red) and Dopey (a mid-toned dusty mauve). The full size Ultra Satin Lips retail for USD$6.00 each (the same as their Ultra Matte Lips).

This is a new alternative to the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick. I love their ultra matte and this is another reason why I like this satin lipstick. Liquid lipsticks are one of my favorite beauty products of all time. In general, I love their intensity, their precision, and their long wear.

Some liquids¬†gives¬†bulletproof wear, meaning it can dry¬†out your lips but not these.¬†The big difference between Ultra Matte and Ultra Satin is that Ultra Satin doesn‚Äôt dry down to a completely matte finish.¬†It¬†doesn’t feel heavy, sticky, or even tacky, but you know they‚Äôre there. These are¬†extremely pigmented and sets to a comfortable satin finish. I really like¬†the shades of these two liquid lipsticks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was the best Mother’s Day gift bag that was gifted to me. Shout out to my hubby and son for choosing this awesome gift. I love everything in it. The swag bag is super cute!

Inside the Mother’s Day swag bag (limited edition) you got a Double Play Pressed Powder Blush & Highlighter, 2 Blotted Lip Lipsticks and an Eye liner. It was a super deal since they only paid $25 for all 4 items.

Which one do you like?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s¬†revolutionary! Say whaaat! That’s right! Colourpop created a new formula based off of their super shock technology that’s developed specifically for this face palette that will not dry out!

Double Play Pressed Powder Blush Face Duo is retailed for $16 on their website. The shade on the left is Getting Handsy which is described as a matte blush with warm nude undertone while the Padded Down is a pearlized highlighter in warm champagne undertone.

I’m super excited to give this a test run. I’ve heard some positive things about it so I’m curious to try it out myself. You guys know the drill – an upcoming post review with¬†color swatch coming up soon.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next thing I got is their new range of lip products is the Blotted Lip Lipstick. I got the shade Sucker is a soft coral and Drip is described as a warm rosey mauve color lip.

As¬†I did the color swatches, I feel that¬†Colourpop Blottled Lip Lipsticks have the most unique texture I‚Äôve ever come across ‚Äď it combines the firmness of a wax crayon with the silky-smoothness of silicone. It has the cushiony softness that’s comfy to wear on lips. There’s no fragrant or scents at all.

One thing I noticed is that if you want a medium coverage, you need to swipe at least 2-¬†3x to get the opacity. I wear Drip¬†today for lunch at Bar B Barn¬†(I had BBQ chicken and fries) and I did a quick touch up before heading to Sephora. It was¬†a NO fuss touch up! I’m currently loving it.

The formula is my absolute favorite from Colourpop so far. If you’re like me and prefer minimal, natural, no-fuss makeup looks, I would definitely recommend picking up a few of these. Plus at $5 each, you can’t beat it!)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least, is the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in the color Brew -Haha and is described as a True black brown in a matte finish. I really like the color but the pencil keeps breaking on me. I’m not sure if I got a bad one because¬†the first I did the color swatch it broke, and¬†then when¬†I tried to use it again today, it kept breaking. I like the pencil but this one failed me. I don’t recommend this pencil liner to anyone until an improvement¬†is made to the formula.

Don’t forget to check on their website for their new Limited Edition Birthday Bag¬†Kit. It’s their 3rd year Anniversary, you guys! This is not a partnership or sponsor post¬†whatsoever, I’m just sharing¬†some love on the special deals.

Just a quick reminder that Colourpop hold the PETA badge of honour Beauty Without Bunnies.  This company is cruelty-free! It does NOT test on animals.

Have you tried¬†any of Colourpop makeup products¬†yet? What’s your favorite? Tell me everything down below!

BH Cosmetics Best Deals in Beauty

 

Hey guys!¬†Why is that when you try to restrain yourself, life decides to place temptation in your way? Recently, my deal fairies brought to my attention that BH Cosmetics is having another of their super deals for products on orders $25+, I’ll show you the freebies I got as you scroll down. Technically, I was on a self-imposing ban but how can you ignore deals like that. I’m just human!

Here’s what I bought:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got:

Total: $32.48 + shipping $11.31 Р$4.99 (double deal) = US$38.80 

Freebies:

I paid only $38.80 for all these goodies. I’m a happy girl!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I want to start my post by sharing this:

It’s a new products that’ll make you scream, “Take my money!” (Apologies in advance to your bank account.)

So yes, for my first purchase, I knew I wanted to try this ever since¬†I missed on Carli’s first Eyeshadow Palette and for $19.50 I’m down with it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know, I know, ANOTHER Palette I can hear you say. I’ve a sickness I think but just look at this beauty.

This is a stunning palette which I’ve really obsessed with recently. I’ve already did a first impression for you guys in my previous post. So, Check out¬†for¬†full reviews of this palette which I’ll link it here.

The purple shadow in the middle is a worthy color from¬†this palette. I’ve been digging in to it ever since I got it. Just swipe it on with an eyeliner brush, dab on a little bit of finishing powder to keep the color in place, and go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My second pick is the Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer in the shade 106 for Light to Medium and with yellow undertones. Available in 15 pale-to-dark shades, in addition to 3 color correctors in pink, yellow, and peach to accommodate all skin tones.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m pretty thrilled to have this in my makeup bag. I’ve heard many good things about it. From the color swatch which I just did, I could see myself wearing it often or my go-to on days when I’m feeling a little experimental‚ÄĒall at a very forgiving price point.

I’ll keep you updated of any new development after I’ve give it a proper test run.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The third item I picked is an Eye Curler. Nothing really romantic or fancy about it. It’s just an eye curler but¬†I used it quite religiously. The hot pink color grips scream¬†spring. I really like the girly color. It’s so cute!

For a price you can’t beat, I think this is a great¬†eyelash curler and I know for sure that I’ll use it again and again.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m very happy to get this eye lash curler. I’ve¬†small eyes and it fits my lash line perfectly. I appreciate¬†the soft and comfort grips.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is Brush #19 which I’ve been wanting to get but didn’t have the¬†reason¬†to, if that make any sense. But since I’ve been reaching out back to gel eyeliner, this brush comes at perfect timing. This short, firm brush allows for controlled and for extremely precise eyeliner application.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now onto the freebies. With any purchase of $25+ you got three FREE items I mentioned above and again on closed up.

This is my 3rd Liquid Eyeliner from this brand. I went through a lot of liquid eyeliners and I couldn’t be more happy¬†to get it¬†for free.¬†Seriously. I can’t say enough good things about this liner. It’s long lasting, smudge-proof and gives you a bold and dramatic look in just one stroke.¬†I absolutely love this eyeliner.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is another freebie I got and it’s their NEW¬†Foil Eyes To Go 6-Color Eyeshadow Palette . Available in five different mini 6-color mixes palettes. I’ve a collection of three other palettes from this line and so happy to add this to my vanity.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, I’m a sucker for eyeshadows! And when it’s free, I’ll take it. The neutral¬†colors look like they can be pigmented or sheered out so I’m really excited to try it out. I’ll do a separate post review and color swatches on all the palettes from this collection. So , don’t forget to stay tuned!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The freebies never stop! I’m not complaining either when I received a nice travel Eye Essentials To Go – 4 pieces brush set in my package. It comes with four eye brushes with a good size handle.

Since this is a freebie, you might not find this particular set online but they’re the option of 7 pieces and 3 pieces brush to choose from at a very low price.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Definitely a nice set to have for short trips. Your eye essential includes a blending brush, eye shader brush, ¬†tapered brush and fine liner brush. With summer approaching and several plans to go¬†travelling, I can’t wait to bring this with me in my makeup travel bag.

I’ve very good experience when shopping online. I loved how easy it was to purchase, pay, and I loved their selection. They had makeup, skincare, hair, tools…

Overall, I love shopping online at bhcosmetics.com because they always have special promo and offer great discounts. All their products are cruelty free¬†in case you’re curious to know. So what are you waiting for, head over to their website and see for yourself. They’re running another special deals as I speak.

What other new products do you want me to review next? Comment below.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you soon on my next post. Bye!

Blogember Best Beauty Gifts 2016

 

Hi guys and welcome back! So, today’s blog is going to be my first best beauty guide series and it going to be the Best Beauty Gifts for her. I’m doing this a little differently as oppose to my usual postings.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To start of with is beauty gifts. There are so many out this Christmas. It’s so difficult to choose which are the very best one. But today is based on what I personally love and what I would recommend on product wise, the awesome packaging and what’s a good deal.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Starting of with the new BH Cosmetics Marble Collection in Warm Stone. This collection stands out the most to me. I believe there are another shade for cool-toned person¬†but what draws me is definitely the packaging. I really like the marble pattern packaging. It’s so so gorgeous and it looks so luxury. I fell in love with this palette¬†immediately.¬†I can’t stop admiring the beauty. Honestly, who could resist these eyeshadows. I mean, seriously!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This palette come in a sleek, full mirrored case featuring a unique marbled pattern.I’m quite impressed with the formula of these shadows. They’re very pigmented and feel buttery smooth to touch! The color selection is¬†gorgeous with a mixed of matte and shimmer.

Great quality product at an awesome price. At $12 a palette what could possibly beat that! Perfect gift for this holiday.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on is the Duo Cheek Color Floral Blush in Bahama Bronze. This is priced for $5.50 and there is four amazing shades to choose from.

It comes in with a cardboard packaging just like many of BH Cosmetic’s products. I love that it has a decent size mirror that comes with a magnetic closure.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really love the cute floral design of this blush and couldn’t resist not to pick it.¬†There’s just shimmery enough and easy to build on more to your desire look. Very nice pigmentation and a pretty color for fall.

I’m loving it and would¬†definitely repurchase.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m very excited to get this palette in my mail from BH Cosmetics. This is a new release by this brand. It’s a collaboration between Bubz Beauty (a beauty youtuber Lindy Tsang) with BH Cosmetics. Feeling so excited for her.

Introducing you with the palette:

As you can see in front of the palette. The palette is called “Be … “. A lot of thoughts were poured into this 12 eyeshadow palette according to Bubz. ¬†Every morning when you wear this eyeshadow, you will Be …Happy, Grateful, Genuine, Optimistic, Inspired or Bold just to name a few. I’m sure you get the drill, right!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Most eyeshadow palettes that I own from BH Cosmetics are great quality, so I should expect this Be… by BubzBeauty Eyeshadow Palette to perform just as well. It features 12 shimmer and matte shades in beautiful warm tones, perfect for fall and winter.

The shades are beautiful too in case you wonder. Now go ahead and grab this at BH Cosmetics for $18 $12.50

I’m really feeling purple these days. Purple has always been part of the fall¬†trend and I’m just as excited to pick up some¬†courage to rock purple eyeshadows. I’m wearing the purple shadow in the shade Kind on the lids, Confident on the crease and Inspired on the outer corner (#EOTD I posted on Instagram) but if you dare, go for a dark plum instead of purple for an even more stylish look. I’ll be doing a post review to show you the color swatches as well.So, don’t forget to stay tuned!

All products by Bh Cosmetics is cruelty-free for those concerned about this.

There’s a lot of times I feel stress and guilt for neglecting you guys but my health needs me more. Fortunately, you guys have been super understanding and become even more supportive these days =) Thank you so much for making things even easier for me.

Drugstore Cruelty Free Makeup Haul – E.L.F. Hit & Misses

 

Hi guys, today I’ve a few drugstore cruelty free makeup haul for you. I purchased all these stuff and then I said oh!!! it’s time to do a haul and I’m freaking excited! Really, really excited!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There’s quite bit of products I have picked up from Walmart. Yes, aren’t they’re gorgeous! Since the day our Walmart has E.L.F.Cosmetics I’ve been insanely obsessed to get all their stuff. It’s so fun to do a haul. I got many requests to do the E.L.F. makeup products so this is so exciting.

So, I’m going to go ahead and jump into everything.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shade from (L-R) : Ain’t That Sweet (pinkish), Wine Pot (burgundy wine) and Crush Chic (gold bronze).

Look how cute these smudge pots are. It comes in a clear transparent glass pot and this is¬†so cool. I’m loving it now and I’m going to continue trying them.

elf-smudge-pot

These are some gorgeous E.L.F. Smudge Pots. Absolutely stunning! Look how pigmented they are. The first moment I opened up this Crush Chic, I knew I was going to love it. It’s so so pretty!

I love¬†the shades and the formula. Crush Chic would be perfect for the coming holiday. Wine Pot is amazing for fall and Ain’t That Sweet for everyday eye makeup. It’s like they got us covered the whole year round.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next thing I want to talk about is this Blush in Mellow Mauve.

When showing it on picture is gorgeous but when in person it’s amazing. There’s a little of shimmer in it but I’m going to try it out for a little more before I share my thoughts and opinion on this one. I’m going with¬†the thought of going back and forth with this blush. Everything here is so smooth and pigmented. I just can’t get enough of this. One apparent thing I notice¬†is that it allows you to layer for more depth¬†without looking cakey or clown-y.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on to the next item I got is the Perfect Finish HD Powder in a compact packaging. It comes in a duo layered tier with a decent mirror on the cover. I would recommend this one if you don’t like the loose powder format. The texture is very lightweight and super soft on touched.¬†I can tell you that I like it but not love. I think I’m going to use it a little bit more before I give my final thoughts.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next thing I want to talk about is this beautiful packaging E.L.F. High Definition Powder in Sheer.  This is studio line product on E.L.F.

It doesn’t necessary have the largest impact when you put if on your face. It really need to take time to test it out for a longer time.

This is the packaging. It’s a matte black old box. It’s a square shape¬†with twist off top. This is a everyday sheer¬†highlighter. These are pigmented and so soft. Very lightweight. It’s intended to be used as finishing powder basically and that’s how I’ve been using it. I want it to be clear it’s not a shimmery shinny product. It’s like a soft natural finish.

I prefer to use a big fluffy powder brush to apply, but sometimes use the puff that comes with it to pat on areas that need extra attention. My¬†only complain is the packaging. It gets very messy after you lift up the sticker. The plastic sifter will get messy. ¬†If¬†you’re not super careful there will be powder EVERYWHERE. I personally is not a big fan of this honestly. It’s so messy and wasteful. I’m just being honest!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next is this gorgeous Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette by E.l.f Cosmetics. You guys know that I’m obsessed with eyeshadow palettes and you know that I’ll keep on going back to get more palettes every time I see them. I seriously need someone has to chain me down (jk). I don’t I’ll ever stop buying eyeshadow palettes ever. I love all the shades and this Mad for Matte was screaming my name.

eyeshadow-swatches

If you’re in the market for an affordable and good quality eyeshadow palette, I highly recommend this. It housed 10 amazing neutral matte shadows that suits any skin color. If you’re a beginner to makeup, this palette is a must have. It’s nicely pigmented and it long wearing. The shadows are true to its color and a little goes a long way. The packaging is slim and sleek. Love it!

This is it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now I’m going to talk about something I don’t really liked. And it’s the Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California. This is unfortunately a miss because the formula is not long lasting and it takes a lot of work to blend. It’s also very dry and packed with metallic powder with fall out. I just wanted to try them out for you guys but I was having difficulty to apply them on my lids.

So instead, I did some swatches as shown below- I picked the products using¬†my fingers and these are done with a single swipe directly from the pan to my bare hand. They’re insanely shimmery and metallic¬†looking finishing. The pigmentation looks decent unless you use it wet. I tried using them dry which¬†doesn’t show up anything. I really like the shades in the palette but this is just a miss for me.

baked eyeshadow .jpg

I really want to like it but nope this isn’t working for me.

So, that’s all for my haul today. I think it’s safe to say that we all agree that Elf prices just can’t be beat. It’s so difficult to find the balance between quality and price. You know what I’m saying!¬†You got to give some credit to Elf, they’re always creating new things.

What do you think guys? Will you be checking these out soon? Comment below your reply. I love to read your comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

I really hope you enjoyed reading this post and I can’t wait to see you again on the next one. Bye!

Blogtober* Natural Beauty Makeup

 

Hey guys! ¬†Today, I’ve been lucky enough to be doing this collaboration with Maison Jacynthe. Shout out to my dear friend Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom for hooking me up with this brand. She is the most lovely and friendly girl I’ve known and I’m telling you guys to subscribe to¬†her blog if you haven’t already.

A brief history: Maison Jacynthe was founded in September 2014 by Jacynthe René, an artist and producers known for her roles in The Adventure of Pluto Nash, Memories Unlocked and Snake Eyes. She has an online magazine at http://www.maisonjacynthe.ca/. 

I’m so excited to be able to share today’s post today with you and so let’s get to it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Press samples*

The latest of which this makeup line was just launched on August 28th and has gained popularity since. Do you know that Maison Jacynthe has nearly 60,000 clients to endorse it!

When I opened¬†these makeup products, I know immediately that I’m going to love them. It just blew my mind to see how amazing and gorgeous the packaging of the bullet tube.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Firstly for the blush. This is an incredible product in the shade Roméo for $26.00. Another gorgeous shade selection is Juliette (a Rosy Pink shade).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Extremely pigmented on formulation and I also noticed that it has an amazing hint of scents to it. This product stays true to its color and a little goes a long way. Just a gentle swipe on the blush¬†is all you need to apply on both¬†cheeks. It goes on so smoothly and soft. I’m in love!

blush-swatches

Here’s the color swatch on bare hands. Isn’t it gorgeous!

It feels creamy to touch and did I mentioned that I just love the pigmentation. On top of that must I say that the staying power is amazing too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The concealer is one of the aspect I like of the¬†parcel. I’m very excited to try this. The texture is creamy, soft and it blends very nicely with a beauty blender and/or concealer brush. And you’d get an unbelievable effect from it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It may seems expensive at first glance of $29.00 but considering a product that actually work for all skin type and they’re 100% natural. It’s definitely worth the investment.

concealer

I’ve¬†a closed up swatch here (Medium Beige) in case you’re curious on the color tone. Another shade available online is in the shade Light Beige. This product also¬†gives a matte¬†finish to your look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on to the next product is their Lipstick in Rosewood. I chose this color specifically for fall. There are 9 shades in the line-up. The color ranges from coral, pink to moka and more.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the solid packaging of this lipstick. It looks really luxe and sleek.

lippie-swatch

This lipstick wears incredibly well, staying even and comfortable with a rich, moisturizing feel to them.

I do think that the lipstick is a little more pricey than the regular bullets, but I’m totally obsessed already.

lip-swatches

Overall, I’m seriously impressed with these products from Maison Jaycnthe. There really is something for everyone and for many who’s looking for natural and cruelty free makeup. If you’re in the market for a blush, concealer or lipstick, check these out at their website.

What’s incredibly appealing about Maison Jacynthe is that their products are made without chemicals. They use only 100% natural and active ingredients in their line. Last year, they joined PETA‘s Beauty Without Bunnies Program as one of their cruelty free companies.

What do you think guys? Will you be checking these out soon? Comment below your reply. I love to read your comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. I hope to see you all again on my next blog.

Smarten Up Milani Earthy Elements Review & Swatches

 

 

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to do a blog post on one of my favorite Cruelty Free Drugstore brand, yes it’s the new Milani Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette.

I’m super excited already. Let’s get on with it! ):

First of all, I want to mention that this palette housed six gorgeous shadows. Inside this palette is a double ended brush which actually works. It’s not those crappy drugstore sponge applicator you threw right away.

I really really love the color selections in this palette. Very earthly and neutral tones. When I used this for the first time, I was absolutely blown away! I would recommend this to anyone who¬†likes a warm neutral tone eyeshadowsas it’s incredibly pigmented with amazing finishing.

The pigmentation varies from shade to shade, but they are all smooth so I don’t foresee any trouble once they are paired with a good primer or base. I especially love the orangey/ red and bronzey eyeshadow in 05 Earthly Elements! So beautiful!

The reason I enjoy this for day-to-day wear is its super quick to apply, and super build- able. It’s great to just throw on before I head out the door. If you love earthly neutral shadows, you’ll love this palette.

Warm range color tone which I can wear everyday. Love love the color selection in this palette. All the shadows are highly pigmented and the shade perfect for spring/summer look.

The formula on this palette is of  matte, satin and frosty finish.

My Beauty Madness Wednesday With BH Cosmetics

 

Happy Wednesday everyone!

bh 26 eyeshadow

I’m very excited today to be sharing with you a cosmetic brand which is new to me. This is the third¬†eyeshadow palette that I received through online orders from BH Cosmetics. I did a guest post at mybeautybunny blog and hence I¬†wanted to talk more about the other palettes I got from BH.

In case, if you’re new to BH Cosmetics makeup brand, I just want to put it out that it’s a cruelty free company. Let’s get started:-

bh eyeshadows and blush

I got this 26 Color Palette in Neutral Eyeshadow & Blush by BH Cosmetics¬†for $10.50 when it was on special promo (now online $20.00) which unfortunately has been out of stock until Sept 30.¬†This is my third¬†eyeshadow palette I received besides the Baked and Beautiful 20 Eyeshadow Palette¬†which I did a Guest Post not too long ago. I’ll be doing another eyeshadow palette by BH next week in My¬†Beauty Madness Wednesday.

color palette 26 eyeshadows

All these neutral shades are versatile and very easy to work on, The pigmentation is excellent and the texture is smooth and soft.¬†I’m in love with all these fabulous neutral shades. There are 21 eyeshadows and¬†5 good¬†size pan blushes in this palette. The only thing is that there is no mirror in this packaging and the packing a little flimsy. But hey for only $10.50 that’s a super steal, right! hehehe!

color swatches of BH

The color swatches are on bare hands and it gives beautiful finish of shimmer, pearl or matte. I really like these color combinations which can be used for everyday to evening wear.

I’ve been wanting this palette for a while as the color shades are right up my alley. Love the color of the blushes too.

The texture feels creamy and velvety to touch. The pigmentation is pretty with shimmery finish. If you love shimmery or pearly shadows then look no further, you will love them. There is also option for matte finish that you can try. Another great bonus is that BH Cosmetics product is not tested on animal. So, yay for cruelty free!

I’m extremely pleased with my purchase. I will recommend this to my family¬†and friends. So, ya¬†that’s it¬†for this week’s My Beauty Madness Wednesday and until we meet¬†again¬†next week, stay beautiful!

What do you think of this week’s find from BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette? Will you be picking up one? I ‚̧ to hear your comments.

Thank you as usual for taking the time to read.

NYX Mosaic Blush|Cruelty Free Makeup

 

 

Hey lovelies!

It’s such a beautiful day here and I’m in the mood for¬†some awesome blush to doll up. It’s been along time since I’ve done a blush review and I’m excited to share this NYX Mosaic Powder with¬†all of¬†you. The mosaic tiles sort of reminds me of the puzzle¬†game my son used to¬†play. Anyways, let’s roll:-

nyx mosaic blush

I have here with me this 5 shades blushes in one pan. Yes, this product is cruelty free in case you want to know. Can you spot the bunny ears at the back of this packaging? Good job!

On a more serious note, can you believe how insanely pretty this blusher is? The formula is highly pigmented and smooth.On top of that the color payoff is incredible with¬†each shades portray different color hues in this pan. I chose the shade in 05 Silk this time and love it, love it, with a ‚̧ on it. The tone is of dark pink-gold with shimmers which is very nice. This blusher is selling for $10.99 at my local drugstore for a net wt: 0.2 oz. It’s available in ten magical¬†shades to choose from. You can find them at drugstores, Target US and NYX Cosmetic online.

There is one thing I noticed which is¬†less is more! Be gentle in application because these blushes can go on a bit heavy.¬†Overall, it¬†perform so nicely on the cheeks! I’m really happy with this mosaic powder blusher. This blusher is awesome and gives a great warm¬†glow that’s simply gorgeous ūüėÄ

This mosaic powder can be used to¬†highlight, enhance, bronze and brightening all in one pan. Perfect to bring for travelling or to your summer vacation. I confidently recommend my friends and family to get this blusher. Make no mistake I’m telling you – it’s that good!
