Neutrogena Back To School Supplies

 

Back To School for most people is all about shopping for school supplies but don’t forget to shop for your skin care products while you there. Imagine all the stress and anxiety of going to high school. So exciting and nerve breaking too am I right! Having said that, with high stress, the uninvited guest usually pops out of nowhere. That’s right, I’m talking about acne.

Neutrogena skincare products

It seems that Neutrogena is killing it with their Back To School Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne product lines. I’ve high hope on all these product samples I received from the PR company. Huge shout out to the team!

Do you ever have a feeling of deja vu? Drugstore skincare products are starting to feel like this to me. I love talking skincare with you guys in my blog. Since summer will be over soon I thought of sharing some products that will make your back to school easy peasy.

These works amazingly well. I typically don’t get pimples but when I do I use this to help get rid of them:

NEUTROGENA® Rapid Clear® Stubborn Acne® Cleanser

A cleanser that works to remove dry and uneven patches. With only a few wash I started to notice some of my uneven skin disappears. The formula work well with my skin and I’m so glad it did. If you’re a combo to dry skin type with moderate acne problem then you’re going to find this product helps. Worth checking it out.

rapid clear leave on mask

NEUTROGENA® RAPID CLEAR®STUBBORN ACNE DAILY LEAVE-ON MASK

I like to wear this every once a week in the morning especially when I know I’ll be indoors most of the day. You just wet your hands and then apply the product all over the face. Once it dries up, you get a smooth and powdery finish feel to it.

rapid clear spot gel

NEUTROGENA® RAPID CLEAR®STUBBORN ACNE SPOT GEL

My skin has been good these past months and since I don’t have any breakouts or pimples I’m not able to test out this spot gel to its fullest accuracy. But if you’re on the lookout for something that has benzoyl peroxide than look no further.

Neutrogena claims this product helps clear breakouts with maximum strength and reduce the signs of stubborn breakouts. It’s required that you wash your hands every time before applying products to sensitive skins. Keep your hands away from pimples for your skins sake. Use spot gel instead. Neutrogena is a drugstore brand I trust.

NEUTROGENA® OIL FREE ACNE CORRECT & COVER PINK GRAPEFRUIT MOISTURIZER

I can’t stress enough my obsession for BB cream or tinted moisturizer and when I saw this in the pr box I was elated with the prospect of trying these bad boys out. Love the lighweight formula and coverage. It makes my skin looks more even and it feels really nice having this moisturizer on. At $8.97 a tube you can’t go wrong with that!

neutrogena bb cream

Available in 2 shades. Fair to Light and Medium to Tan. Can’t find your perfect shade, you can mix and match to your desirable skin color. This line is great for sensitive or acne prone skin types, I recommend you look in your local drugstore.

As usual, let me know what you think. Which product will you likely pick for yourself or your loved ones? I’d love to know in the comments.

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.

Beauty Product I’m Loving!

 

I have to say, I’m so excited that August is over. Not that I have anything against August per se – but the end of August means the start of September, right! September means fall … pumpkin spice lattes… leaves on the ground … I can go on and on … blah blah blah. So you get the picture. I can’t be bothered with summer anymore.  I’m ready to move one and honestly I’m so ready for the temperature to drop!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today, I want to share products I just picked up from Walmart last weekend. Can you take a guess? Yes, it’s the Wet n Wild Beauty Mega Lip Color. Fall for me mostly means playing with darker and bold color lippies, and boy was I excited to try them upon reaching home.

I uploaded pictures of the color swatches on my Instagram. If you have been following me, you probably had seen it, and if you haven’t already just click here to go to my Instagram 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did a post review on them before and since I really love this awesome products, I’m going to rave about it again today.

The packaging is a decent drugstore plastic material. Nothing fancy but the formula is amazing.  To read more of my thoughts and opinions on other color I reviewed, then just hit the link.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L-R: Cherry Picking, Mocha-licious & Stoplight Red

OMG!!! Just look how pigmented the formula is. I know, it’s freaking Amaazzzing!!! Love, love the color payoff and insane pigmentation.

cherry-pickingmocha

I tried out all the shades and here are the color appeared on lips. They feel comfortable and not drying at all. I really like the nice feel on my lips. As I was writing the review yesterday, I was wearing my Stoplight Red for around 5 hours then and even through eating and drinking, the pigment was still true and even on my lips, despite a lot of the product itself having worn away. It just blew my mind! Oh yaass!

stoplight-red

Available in 26 beautiful shades at Walmart for CAD$2.84 and you can. This lipstick is going to appeal to people who are on-the-go all day long. They lasted a long time.

I highly recommend if you’re someone who hates fusing over their lipstick throughout the day. For the price, what could possibly go wrong.

Give it a thumb’s up if you like this post. Don’t forget to follow me on my blog or other social media if you haven’t already.

Thanks guys for being super awesome! muak …♥

UK Drugstore Mail Beauty Haul 2016

 

Hi everyone! And today, I bringing you a beauty haul all the way from UK! And yes, they’re all drugstore makeup products, mind you. Make Up Revolution is a budget friendly and cruelty free brand based in the UK.

I don’t typically shop like this but once every month is where I’ve gone bananas.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Some of these products here are like blowing my mind! It’s like poof..poof.. ! I couldn’t think straight. I’m super excited right now!

blowing my mind
by source

Yes, I’m feeling it right now! Oh gosh!

After taking a few deep breath and did my happy dance, let’s focus on the things I got shall we?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First thing first – I got three shades of the Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Foundation in FB 09, FB10 and FB12 or commonly known as BB cream.

It says on the packaging that it’s “blendable, buildable and creates a flawless complexion that’s suitable for all skin types.” I always love a good formulated BB cream.

And the packaging, I really don’t have problem with a tube BB cream since you could actually squeeze out the remainder of the product better than in a bottle, in my opinion. So, yes, I’m quite excited to try them for you guys.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the sad products which I’ve tried and reviewed in my previous post which I’ll link it here for you. These are the foundations which I’m disappointed about. The formula was too runny and the color was … uhhh… I’m just to sad to talk about it.

Let’s go to something more cheerful like …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Lip Amplification Lip Gloss. I got the shades High Voltage (fuchsia pink) and Full Throttle (fire engine red), each net wt for 0.23 fl oz.

I love love love lip cream but this lip gloss reminds me a lot of my favorite lip cream by Gerard Cosmetics. It really feels like a lip cream than a lip gloss, and let me tell you that the staying power is ridiculously long.

Okay, I cheated and try the full throttle and was amazed by the formula and the long-lasting effect. It survive all the way through after a very long day with snacks and drinks. It does leave a pretty lip stain at the end of the day, which I really like rather than a full bare lips.

Anyways, I’m going to continue to wear them and I’m very excited to try the  fuchsia pink next. I curious to see what this shade will look. So, stay tuned and don’t go away. Detailed review coming up pretty soon.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk Blushing Hearts Triple Baked Blusher from the I Heart Makeup range from Make Up Revolution. The packaging from the box it came in, to the packaging of the product is pretty. I definitely would be applying it as a highlighter.

Impressive! Very impressive. I fell in love with this blush on first sight. Oh my gosh! I just died when I saw how insanely pigmented this blush is. These blushes look very similar to the Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush by Too Faced. If you’re looking for a dupe, then I would suggest the shade Peachy Keen Heart look very much like the images of the Sweethearts blushes from Too Faced that I have seen online, but I don’t own the Too Faced blushes to do an exact comparison for you.

This frosty formula could be wore alone as a blush and it looked really pretty but I think many people would enjoy this as a highlighter more.

This I Heart Makeup Triple Baked Blusher I got is in Peachy Pink Kisses. Just look at this awesomeness. I can’t wait to put them on.  This one has a great potential to be a perfect highlighter for summer glow?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since I’ve travel plan this week, I’m glad to get my hands on all these cutie brushes to bring along with me on my trip. Oh yes! I’m so excited to try them out. The bristles are so soft and they’re just the right size for my makeup bag.

L to R: Mini Eyeshadow Brush, Mini Angled Brush, Mini Foundation Brush and lastly the Mini Face Brush.

Note that these are made of dual fibre synthetic hair. I know there is a debate on whether to opt for natural animal hair or unnatural synthetic hair fibre but either way is a double-edged sword. You either support animal cruelty or the unnatural? Well, I don’t often do this, but I’m cheering for the synthetic.

I’ll have a separate post of the why. In case you want to know more, here is the link to PETA site. It’s a great resource for help to find other companies that offer synthetic makeup brushes. Take that double-edged sword!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next item I got is the Shimmer Brick Eyeshadow in 5 shimmery metallic shadows. The color I got is in Rose Gold. Ridiculously pigmented shadows and all the colors are so so gorgeous. You got to get them to try it yourself. I know I’m jumping before the cart but that’s how excited I am with it.

I noticed that a little goes a long way for these shadows based on the formula and a quick swatch on my wrist. I’m really impressed with the color payoff. I think I’m going to love it.

On pan, I think it would be prefect for those who loves shimmery eyeshadows for instance. I love the color and the formula and can’t wait to try them out. I’ll be playing a little bit longer before I share my thoughts and opinion on this product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

How can I forget to order my favorite eyeshadows right? Well, I didn’t. In fact, I not only ordered one but three eyeshadow palettes. Insane? Guilty as charged. Some of you might already know if you’ve been following my blog that I can be so obsessed when it comes to eyeshadow palettes.

Can you see it? Can you see it?

So the next thing I got is the Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave that houses 30 eyeshadows in one palette. I wanted to try this palette for a long time and I’m glad to have my hand on them. It also comes with a double ended brush and a huge size mirror on the lid. I wear it once so I’m not going to judge this one yet. I’ll continue to try it and would report back later.

Moving on more …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Is the Makeup Revolution Affirmation Ultra Eyeshadows that consists of 32 amazing color spectrum? I can see here a nice selection of finishing for matte, shimmery and satin. It’s the same size palette with the Fortune Favours The Brave palette except a missing brush in this one. More detailed review will be posted once I’ve tried it out.

I’ll think I want to do a review on this after I’ve tried it for a while though. So ya! I’m so excited about this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The third eyeshadow palette I have is I Love Makeup 16 Eyeshadows by Black Velvet.

The packaging is cute with a heart jewel on the velvet front are in line with the palette theme. Another thing to point out is that, I love it when brands go all the way out to name their shadows. Don’t you? Or is it just me?

This palette is predominantly a matte palette with 13 shades being matte formula and 3 selected shimmer. I get excited when I see so many matte shadows to play with. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I forgot to add this in the group picture. Opps! My bet!  But here is a full size bottle of the Makeup Remover aka Facial Cleansing Water in 250ml net wt. It smells good and I don’t have anything bad to say about this product.

I’ve been trying for the past weeks and every single day. So far, I’m quite happy with it but I’d want to try it a little longer. In the meantime, I was hoping to find something similar here at the drugstores.

So, overall, I’m quite satisfied with all these makeup goodies from UK. I’m going to be busy trying out all of these goodies for the next few weeks or so.

Let me know some of your UK drugstore products you like to me try. Don’t forget to follow me on my blog. And if so, I hope to see you again on my next one.

Thanks to all for stopping by to read and comment. Until next time, keep been awesome.

The Great Unknown – Almay TLC Liquid Foundation

 

Hey guys! ,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, I raved about this Almay Truly Lasting Color Foundation in my previous post that I’ll link here for you guys. Today, I’m showing you my new purchase of the Almay TLC in the shade 220 Neutral. 

I know it’s strange but believe me when I tell you that, I would picked up 2-3 similar products on one go if I really really love them. Whether it’s clothing, shoes, makeup or purse. Does this ever happen to anyone? Let me know in the comment below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Any foundation formula that feels like my second skin, I’m in for that. This is my favorite drugstore brand for now. Yes, I not only got one but two bottles, the second bottle which I recently picked up as backup.

I did mentioned on my previous post at Express Beauty Blog that Shoppers Drug Mart had discontinued with the Almay brand. But I believe other drugstores are still carrying them. Anyways, when I saw this at the liquidation rack, I snatched it immeditately. The color is what I needed for my backup. It was on sale for $4.00 and it’s the only bottle left. A Win!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s lightweight and keeps the area hydrated and it gives a pretty coverage that it’s not cakey. It blends easily, covers amazingly and last so long. There’s really nothing not to love about this foundation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One main thing I hate is a heavy oily foundation or anything so powdery it just gets into your pores and clogs them. This foundation is not like that at all, which is pretty awesome!

I find the blend ability is good, it doesn’t irritate skin and leaves a semi matte finish. I would say the coverage is medium and buildable. I have had no issues with it being cakey whatsoever.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you’re looking for a reliable and yet natural looking appearance, look no further. I highly recommend. Check out this one in the drugstore near you. I just want to put it out that it may be a little pricey compared to other drugstore brand but if you can wait for coupon or reward points, then you would get for a good steal.

What do you think of this product? Comment below what you think.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

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.

13437238_636445999844856_317238893_n

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!

Burts Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss – Review & Swatch

 

 

I remember saying that I’m not a big fan of lip gloss especially those that are sticky and gunky but I started liking them now because they’re easy to apply and you can get a really pretty lip finish from them in seconds. Sometimes, that’s all you need when you’re rushing around in the morning like a chicken without a head?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I enjoy some of their other products and I love the all natural aspect of Burt’s bees. So, far it hasn’t let me down. So yay!

I got this Burt’s Bees at Walmart and they’re in the shades Starry Night and Nearly Dusk. You can also find them at US Target, Walgreen, Rite Aids, Ulta, drugstores and pretty everywhere. I think these are available in 12 glossy shades but I could be wrong. Need to go back to check again.

Let’s start with Starry Night lip gloss. The color is a deep purple and shiny when first applied but it fades slightly after a few moments. Even after all the shine is gone, there is still a nice subtle color. The formula is not sticky and it’s comfortable on my lips. This product kinda hugs lips and does offer moisture.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I notice the tube itself is pretty pitiful. You aren’t getting much product especially if you’re buying this at the regular price tag at CAD$12-$13 depending the areas. Note that the packaging is of plastic tube with a doe foot applicator. I also like to add that the packaging is cute with the honey comb lid.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m happy that both the formula of the Starry Night and Nearly Dusk are nicely pigmented.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You need to dip the doe foot applicator a few times to get enough product to have an even coverage. Those who hate getting massive amounts of product on the wand at once will love these.

I do enjoy the consistency of the formula. I don’t feel the stickiness at all. It feels really comfortable on lips which is a bonus point for a picky lip gloss like me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the doe foot applicator. The color of the Nearly Dusk is pretty and glossy. I like it! I just want to put this out – both of these products have a natural scents but I notice that the Starry Night has stronger scents even though both are of the same formula [100% Natural]. They also have a taste that is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I want to say it tastes like honey, but it’s so subtle that I can’t quite put my finger on it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Unlike some pigmented glosses, these don’t leave unevenly stained lips behind once they are worn off! Another point I want to mention is the finishing look. It gives a nice subtle sheer finish that leaves your lips looking moisturized and fresh.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There you have the color swatches. On your left is the Starry Night and Nearly Dusk on your right. You can see the shimmers on the swatch.

  • Starry Night is a sheer deep purple wine (left)
  • Nearly Dusk is a sheer medium mauve with subtle light purple shimmer (right)

Overall, I find that the price is of a steeper end for a drugstore brand and if you’ve already have your lip gloss, then you can skip this one. But for those who truly love sheer washes of glossy pigment on their lips, but also want moisturizing benefits, then this would be a great product to grab. Definitely give it a good look.

Have you tried it already? Don’t forget to leave your comments below.

Hope you all enjoy this post, the product and the look and I can’t wait to see what you all think!

Sharon xoxo

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eyeshadow Quad – Review & Swatch

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been wanting to try Elizabeth Arden like forever.  And I finally decided to dive in and try this Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad.

In this post I’m going to be writing about a stunning eye palette, the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad – Posh Purples.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I purchased this Posh Purples by Elizabeth Arden  because it looks like many eye shadow colors that I own. It’s got a good color selection that I can reach for every time I feel like wearing purple eye makeup.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Other limited edition beautiful color eye shadow quad is in Golden Opulence and Chic Browns for US$40.00 online at Elizabeth Arden website.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This palette comes complete with a double-sided eye shadow brush with a decent size mirror in a sleek white compact that adorned with a glided plaque. Charming isn’t it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These colors are all gorgeous with flattering tones. You get two shimmery, one glitter and matte shadows. It’s quite versatile and that makes it easily to create any look you like.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When it comes to the texture of powders you can really feel the difference between high-street and high-end brands, although I do want to point out that high-street brands are catching up and very fast!

The packaging is super-cute and has a luxury touch about it plus all the colors are indeed flattering!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Can you all see the goodness of these eyeshadows in that pan?  Aaaaahhhh!!!

Another point worth mentioning is that the formula goes on smoothly and lasts all day and night. Amazing results when it comes to blending and buildable to the tone your desire. I would say it has quite a high-pigment color with a crease-resistant finish.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the color swatches on my bare arm. It’s there and it’s in full effect. Every time, I take a picture of a swatch with lighter shades, you barely see it but this pink glitter shadow (on the left) is so pretty. I wear it on my lids and brow bones for this look.

Posh Purples EOTD look without applying a primer where I used this palette to create the look above . The purple color formula is intense and has very good color payoff. Love it!

All in all, not bad at all I would say. It gave nice blended finish look and it’s really easy to bring anywhere you go in your purse.

Which of the Elizabeth Arden makeup products would you like to try?  Leave answer in the comments below. As always I love hearing from you so let me know what you think of this palette!

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipsticks – Review & Swatches

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Story about Hard Candy: I started to be a fan of this brand for more than a year plus and have always like to check their new collection lines whenever I’m at Walmart.I noticed that, in the recent years, the brand definitely seems to be making a comeback with its daring and affordable color makeup.

Today I want to share with you some unique lipstick shades from Hard Candy’s Fierce Effects Lipsticks Collection. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Available in 16 fiercely color exclusively at Walmart only for CAD$5.98 a tube.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Fierce Effects Lipsticks packaging come in simple black lipstick tubes with a very pretty silver-studded cap. The top of the cap has a color window that matches the shade of the lipstick inside. That’s so cool right, I also like the name of the lipstick printed on the label, Yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First shade I have here is NUDIST in neutral nude color-toned. Nice color which is not crazily fierce than the other two shades I picked.

You can see that once uncapped, though, the lipsticks don’t look great; the actual bullets are poorly formed and they just seem roughly-made. The formula feels soft which I suspect causing the bullet to look flimsy. Frankly, I expected a better made lipstick period.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Despite the not too impressive formulation, the packaging of these is pretty great. It gives a pretty sheen and translucent yet vibrant finishes as seen on both the color swatches below.

1066 – Nudist – is a dusty rose metallic, another fantastic shade and my personal favorite out of the bunch.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I wear it on my lips, it feels moisturized and quite comfortable actually. The downside of this lipstick that I can immediately point it out is the smudge and transfer-prone wear due to the super slick and almost wet finish product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1053 – Thunder – is an eggplant purple,  this one is kind of sheer but build-able to a nice and even coverage.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1066 – Night Queen – is beautiful blue,  this one that has a nice translucent sheer finish but build-able.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Which color lipsticks would you want to rock this summer? Leave your comments below.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read. Hope to see you on the next one!

Have a great day everyone!

Lancome Eye Makeup Remover – Save or Splurge

 

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover at the moment could probably be the last quest on my search for a holy grail eye makeup remover .

It comes together in my Lancome train set I got a few months ago from Pharmaprix (local drugstore).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m cheap! Well not really but when it comes to eye makeup remover, I always tend to go for a middle to high end brands. I think of nothing when I splurge for $36.50 on 4.2 fl oz makeup remover knowing that it wouldn’t hurt my sensitive eyes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve the same mentality like others, don’t get me wrong me here. Well, I can buy a new eyeshadow palette or compact close to the price tag but for me I rather invest in a good makeup remover that wouldn’t cause irritations to my eyes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve tried to get on board with Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover, it’s pretty good but not as good as Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Available now at Sephora and drugstores.

Have you tried it? Leave your comments below.

Thank you for taking the time to read.

New Revlon Mascara First Impression

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Revlon New Line Mascara

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One, meet your sibling Dramatic Definition mascara and it’s (almost) identical except for the brush applicator and function. Similar sleek, slim and lightweight packaging.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did a  giveaway contest weeks ago which the lucky winner received in her bag the New Revlon Ultimate-All-In one mascara. And today, I’m doing a first impression review on what I personally think of this mascara.

I received this mascara from Pharmaprix Pincourt for consideration. I want to make it clear that I give my honest review and not biased to one side simply because it was given to me, If you’ve been following my blog, you know I speak from my experience as a consumer just like you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This caught my eye when I was first saw at Pharmaprix (Quebec drugstores) and I was pleased for the opportunity to be doing my first impression review on this mascara. So yay!

It says here waterproof mascara, smooth, flexible formula coats lashes for clump free separation. I’m all about volume since I have short lashes. I totally have the Asian short and sparse lashes.

Let’s see if this gives me hope!

There are three other colors available. They got blackened brown, black and blackest black. I got the blackest black waterproof.  Nice!

It’s not clumpy at ALL. The bristle just comb my lashes separately and the end result is awesome blossom.

The brush is not as tiny as the Ultimate All-In-in-One. I would say a decent brush and easy to hold on the handle. I like the new design of this flat tube edge on the sides.

It’s not transferring when I run my finger through and that’s a good sign.There’s not much of a significant on my lashes for length but it does make a difference in terms of definition.

Mascara by Revlon

There’s barely any smudging and I’m surprised it lasted  for 5 hours with no smudging at all now that it’s completely dry. I’m going to continue wearing this and continue reading for the final update.

Overall, after wearing it for 8-9 hours, I’m ready to give my verdict. This is not bad at all. I’m really impressed that my eyes doesn’t look messy with this mascara. I know there are not many brands that are smudge proof but I’m pleased this one is. Well you nail it, Revlon!

NOTD: ESSIE Good As Gold Nail Polish (Pic Heavy)

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nail products I hauled during the holiday at my local drugstore, Pharmaprix (or Shoppers Drug Mart). I was wearing this Good As Gold nail polish by Essie and the nail stickers by Essence the whole time and I really enjoy this color a lot.

Essence french glam and essence french manicure.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Good As Gold by Essie is a metallic gold with extremely fine shimmers that are only visible under bright lights. It totally looks like a metallic yellow-gold in the bottle, but I don’t notice any brown tones when painted on the nails

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Essie Nail Polish formula makes me want to scream at times – the first coat applied beautifully, and the second coat was gorgeous.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Very nice consistency which isn’t too thick or runny. It applies well and opaque finish. One coat is nice but two coats are even better. The formula dries quite fast  if you ask me.

In the photo of my nails, I applied two coats to the rest of my nails, and I did a finishing touch with Essence french glam nail stickers with top coat after that.

I picked this design since it looks playful and feminine. For CAD$1.99 I’m glad I tried them. Would be going back to check out more of this nail stickers at Pharmaprix (Shoppers Drug Mart).

Have you have the days when you feel like doing your own manicure at the comfort of your home? I do and not ashamed to admit it that I can’t wait to try this french manicure tip guides I picked from Essence counter for  CAD$1.99

I was glad that my manicure holds up for at least 4-5 days. I’ll edit this post later letting you know how well it held up without chips.

This is definitely a nail polish I’ll be rocking all winter long. Told you this post is jammed packed with pictures. So glad you stop by and love to share more posts with all of you.

What’s on your nails? I love to hear your side of the story in the comment section.

Thank you very much for stopping by friends. See you on the next one.

Turn Back Clock With LIERAC Paris Liftissime Cream

 

Two Tuesday ago, I went to Pharmaprix to discover the brand new LIERAC Liftissime skincare and boy does it looks good. I received this free sample from the Beauty Gallery for consideration. I’m excited to try out this product by LIERAC seeing the opportunity for those of us living in a drier winter wonderland, now is the best time to slap more moisturizer and lotion to keep our beautiful skin hydrated. We all know that winter is harsh for us here in the North, so let’s be ready than sorry!

Lovely Luxe Packaging

I could see a difference on my skin after using Liftissime reshaping cream. My skin feels smoother, silkier and moisturized the next morning having it on the whole night. Skin feels more tighten and renewed. I’m happy with the results. If you’re over 35 years, you definitely want to check Lierac products out. The price is a little steeper than other drugstore brand like Olay, Nivea, No 7 and many more but for product that REALLY works, this one is the winner in my book.

It has nice soothing scents like other Lierac products and good news is that it’s relaxing and formula feels lightweight on skin. It comes in a nice luxe packaging with a sealed cover. Pink color formula with creamy texture. I couldn’t find any bad things to say on this product.

The rich texture acts to fight installed wrinkles and relaxed features, for mature dry to very dry skins.It contains several actives for an optimal action during the day or during the night, to smooth features and to refine the face and fill installed wrinkles.
