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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!)

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.

Aveeno & Neutrogena PR BOX Unboxing – My First Youtube Video EVER

 

What’s up you guys! Welcome back to my blog! This week is a very exciting week for me. I was contacted by a PR company before Mother’s Day¬†if I want to receive samples to honor mothers¬†from Aveeno. I immediately said yes, (a) because I’m a fan girl of Aveeno,¬†(b) since my mom is coming to visit me¬†in two weeks, I wanted to share these goodies with her. With Aveeno and Neutrogena, everyday is Mother’s Day!

So, last week I got these sample products in the mail for an exchange of my honest review. Part of my job as a beauty blogger is to test out as much as possible so I can share my reviews with you guys.

Aveeno Skin Products

If you are a long time reader you know that I’m a fan girl of Aveeno. I’m also a huge advocate for taking care of your skin, it’s the largest part in our body and the one everyone sees! You only get one, take care of it!

I wanted to do something really special to honor my mom this Mother’s Day beside sharing products with her. So¬†I¬†uploaded my very first YouTube video ever. It’s my first video and definitely not my last!

First of all let’s talk about what I got in this box unboxing.¬†Let me show you what’s inside the current drop…

AVEENO¬ģ Daily Moisturizing Lotion is certainly having a moment isn’t it? It’s¬†everywhere you look and what a revelation too; a moisturizing lotion¬†that’s skin friendly, affordable and¬†effective. What more could you ask for?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO¬ģ Daily Moisturizing Body Wash. I rave about this all the time but truly it’s one of the best moisturizing body wash. It smells so amazing! It’s formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS¬ģ Colloidal Oatmeal to moisturize for 24 hours, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. They claim to provide and lock in moisture for softer, smoother more comfortable skin long after you shower. And it’s soap free and even gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love Aveeno’s Body Wash crazy lot and let me tell you this, you got to try it. Period.

I know that my¬†mom prefers a lightweight formula¬†when it comes to body care and this¬†AVEENO¬ģ Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion¬†will be¬†perfect for her.¬†This hydrating, ultra sheer lotion absorbs in seconds, for a fresh, powder like feel she‚Äôll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016.¬†

NEUTROGENA¬ģ All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. I know facial wipes aren’t for everyone but I do like to stash a pack in my handbag for any make-up emergency or when travelling. Otherwise, regardless of how tired I may be, I will always opt for a “real” cleanser kinda gal.¬†My real gripe with make-up wipes is how they leave my skin feeling after use – even if it is just one use.¬†If ever there was a facial cleansing cloth to pack for¬†a festival, or those just-in-case moments it’s the¬†Neutrogena ¬†Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes.¬†

My mom wears makeup and since we’ll be travelling quite a bit when she’s here visiting, I know this wipes is going to be handy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA¬ģ Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented.¬†Soap. Truly how often do you purchase soap and no I’m not talking about the anti-bacterial liquid hand soap you purchase with your weekly grocery shop, rather I’m indeed referring to the solid bars that perhaps now seem a little lost in time. It claims¬†this bar is pure and provides a gentle cleansing for clean, clear, healthy-looking skin.

I never use soap to¬†wash my¬†face but I like to venture and try new things that I haven’t tried before. Frankly I’m nervous but I’m going to put this to its test and give an update in an upcoming post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA¬ģ NORWEGIAN FORMULA¬ģ Fragrance Free Hand Cream. This is my favorite hand cream,¬†it’s highly concentrated skin care formula instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. It smells nothing at all. This product is fragrance free.

I only use a small amount of products on my hands as shown below, just a little goes a long way. ¬†You can see a noticeable difference in softness and smoothness on your¬†hands after application. Your hands will feel very hydrated and will thank you for it. I’ve tried it and I’m convinced.¬†What are you waiting for? GO!

So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I just can’t wait to see my mom’s reaction trying out some of the products that I’ll be sharing with her. Shout out to Aveeno for making this possible.

Which products are you most interested in? Would you pick any of these items up? What should I try out next? Love to hear your thoughts!
