Best of Neutrogena

 

There’s no denyig that I love the brand by Neutrogena. I’ve been obsessed with the foundation that was sent to me by the PR company a few weeks ago. A big thank you to Neutrogena and especially to Laura for this amazing product.

Let’s start with my favorite Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint which all I’ve been wearing since I got them. I want to share with you guys my thoughts on this hydrating tint foundation because it’s a new release from Neutrogena just recently.

The first time they sent to me this foundation, it was in Natural Ivory shade which was too light for my skin tone. Later, I received two other shades which are a good match for my skin type.

Natural Beige (60)

I really like this shade in Natural Beige. It’s a perfect match for my NC25 skin toned. I use my Elf beauty sponge to apply the foundation everytime and the finishing is flawless. It’s my most preferred method of application.

Soft Beige (50)

It comes in this very nice packaging. I love the packaging, it’s slim, it’s light and I think it’s plastic though it looks like glass, and it’s very heavy duty. It won’t break even if you drop it. So that’s cool!

Soft Beige can be a tad light and pink for me.  I would get lighter color coming up winter as the weather gets colder for some reason. So this would be perfect for me. I love this foundation, I’m just going to say I love it. It’s so unique and the formula is so different that it feels so lightweight and comfortable to wear on skin. It does reminds me of Make Up For Ever Water Blend foundation formula somehow but this one is a fraction of the price.

Natural Ivory (20)

I gave the Natural Ivory bottle to my daughter since she has lighter skin than me and she really likes it. She’s not a big fan of full coverage, full makeup girl so this she enjoys a lot.

It’s not a pump but a different type of applicator. It got a big doe foot applicator while I’ve never used a foundation like this before. It’s super easy application. You just throw it on your face. There’s no mess with finger application or brush.

The reason I love this foundation is because I do feel that at the end of the day, it doesn’t dries up my skin completely. This product does literally moisturize and plumps your skin and makes it feel so smooth and natural as if you just applied it. It’s very nice coverage and it does feel great on my dry skin.

Hydrating tint swatches

Here are the color swatches. From left to right: Natural Beige, Soft Beige and Natural Ivory. It claims to have hyaluronic acid in it and moisturizes and plumps skin for 24 hours and I agree with their claims.

The coverage is light to medium. I highly recommend it. It is better than many highend foundations that give light to medium coverage. This one is a keeper and the best thing is that it’s from the drugstores.

Have you tried this Neutrogena product I’ve mentioned in this post? Share it in the comment below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. I’ll see you again on my next blog. Until then bye!

Get The Look with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Makeup

 

I’m completely obsessed with every single products which was sent to me by this pr company.  Most of you know that I love the brand Neutrogena and I’ve been wanting to try their makeup line for the longest time. So having these makeup products to try is truly a dream come true since we don’t have it here in Canada.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m introducing you guys to a line of makeup with hydrating hyaluronic acid from Neutrogena. I’ve four new products from the Hydro Boost line that I’m very excited to talk about today.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First thing I want to talk about is the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment by Neutrogena.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a clear transparent plastic packaging. Very easy to bring it along in your makeup bag. Super nourishing and gentle to the lips. On their website they claim that it makes lips look and feel hydrated for 24 hours. Honestly, I don’t wear makeup for more than 12 hours duration so I can’t tell if it stays hydrated for 24 hours but I can say that when I tried it on, I was quite impressed with the result. It’s not going anywhere unless you start eating.

Available only in one shade and here’s a swatch my finger pick up directly from the pan. A colorless pigment that you can wear and great for everyday. It’s jammed packed with products that a little really goes a long way. It’s moist and comfortable on the lips. Definitely snap it up before the arrival of cold and dry season.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you’re new to the world of lip balm this is a great place to start because it’s very easy to work on and so affordable. It’s very hydrating to the lips and not waxy whatsoever. I had it on again yesterday and it lasted me for 3-4 hrs until I had a bowl of ramen noodle for lunch.

Neutrogena nourishing long wear

Moving on is the Nourishing Long Wear Eyeshadow + Build in Primer. I’ll be going through this quad for you and giving you my opinion. It comes in a stripe format which I really adore. I do like the color scheme in it. You’re getting four eyeshadows and a mini dual ended sponge applicator.

Color swatch hydro boost shadows

The quality of these shadows are pretty consistent in my opinion. It has that silky and velvety texture feels which I really like. This product will be amazing for beginners. And if, you want something that you could wear daily and yet get that natural look, these shades definitely fit the bill!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These shadows are good, I mean we’re talking good pigmentation here. The shadow on my right side is very smooth and buttery to touch while the rest are equally smooth with a more powdery consistency. They’re easy to apply and blend nicely. They applied evenly which I really appreciate from powder shadows. I did noticed this shadow kick up some powder but it doesn’t really bother me very much since I just have to tap the excess powder off before I do my thing. I’d say these shades are nice for your every day wear.

Neutrogena hydrating tint

This Natural Ivory shade Hydrating Tint would be perfect for Nicole Kidman but it’s definitely too light for my NC25 skin tone. I’m going to skip talking about the color but instead focusing on the formula and the packaging.

I love the formula of this foundation. It claims as a hydrating foundation that’s better for your skin than wearing no makeup at all! I agree with their claim. It’s so lightweight and comfortable that you wouldn’t feel you had it on.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a cute bottle packaging with a silver twist on cap that looks really luxe. I do appreciate big doe foot applicator like so. It’s able to pick up products like no other.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the formula so much, I need to get the correct shade for my skin tone right away. If you’re looking for a flawless look that’s good quality and great value for money, this product really packed a punch. It’s amazing!

As I was wrapping up this post, I received two darker shades foundation from my pr agent since the first one was too light. So I think I’ll do a separate post dedicated to this product. Don’t forget to stay tuned for the next post if you want to see other color swatches in action.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another new lip product line I want to talk about is the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The lip shine name is call Velvet Wine. A new formula that’s non-drying and not sticky. Lip gloss that locks the moisture and gives your lips that intense conditioning shine. As far as the wand applicator is concerned, I noticed that it comes a little too big. You need to pull and push the applicator with more force out or in from the tube. But the wand applies evenly and glides on the lips ever so smoothly if I can say so.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I highly recommend the shades Deep Cherry and Velvet Wine which is beautiful for fall and festive holidays. I just can’t get enough of this lovely color!

I’m loving it! My lips feels so moist, plump and juicy. It’s the best feeling ever for a lip shine in my opinion. It gives a luxurious finish that I truly appreciate. This is a winner in my book. Such a gorgeous formula that I’ll never get sick of. If you haven’t tried this Hydrating Lip Shine yet, I urge you to add this to your makeup bag!

Let me know what you think of these! Have you tried any makeup from Neutrogena? What are your favorite products?

Wishing you all a wonderful week! I’ll talk to you guys again soon. Bye!

New Drugstore Beauty First Impression

 

Hey everybody! Today’s post I went to Walmart actually and picked up two new products and I also got a new sample product from a PR company that I’ll talk later in this post. There was so much new makeup line actually but I just picked a few and I’m just going to jump right in.

New Drugstore Beauty 2017

I think it’s just time that we do our first impression with drugstore products. I haven’t done that in a minute here on my blog and so I wanted to that and share with your my thoughts. I hope you’re excited to see about them. Let’s go ahead and get started.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost
*Press sample

This product was sent to me for my honest opinion and I’m excited to announce the latest addition to the HYDRO BOOST collection Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser. 

I just received this product in my mail on Friday and it gives me the opportunity to do my first impression of all the products on the weekend.

Here’s the FEATURES & BENEFITS:

  • This lightweight exfoliating cleanser with naturally-derived skin smoothers effectively removes dirt, oil and dry surface skin
  • Formulated with purified hyaluronic acid, it works to increase skin’s hydration level
  • Gentle enough for daily use

Available September 2017 at nationwide at food, drug and mass merchandisers and retail price at $9.99 – 12.99 CAD / 141 g depending on where you are located.

Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser

This Hydro Boost has white mini beads exfoliator in it. It smells really nice and fresh actually. The packaging is in a nice tube format with a white cap. It says on the back of the packaging that this product is Soap free, Oil Free, Paraben Free and Non-comedogenic. It also doesn’t contain plastic microbeads in case you’re curious.

I love the smooth, soft and not dried out feeling and not to mention how amazing it exfoliates and cleanses my skin. A new product that’s gentle to the skin, smells awesome and from a trusted drugstore brand you can trust.

Anyways, if hydration is the key to healthy-looking skin for you, then you definitely need to run to your nearest drugstore and get one now.

Rimmel Insta Flawless BB Cream
Walmart

Moving on is the Rimmel  #Insta Flawless Perfecting, Radiant Skin Tint and it’s their new #Insta Flawless collection line at least to me. I’ve the shade Light Medium 6 which is awesome. This is great if you don’t want something too much coverage.

The formula also contains SPF 15 and is available in two shades, Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.

I like the shiny beige tube packaging with the bold pink lettering since it stands out to me the most.

Rimmel Insta Flawless swatch

This can be used alone or under foundation, I used this on it’s own and applied it just like a foundation, with a beauty blender because of it’s tinted formula. I would say the consistency is very much of a bb cream texture. It also smell pleasant too.

I used this all over my face and it just blend I can see that it immediately brightened up my skin and it gives me a lot of radiant actually as well. The coverage is light and it hasn’t gotten rid of any imperfections that I’ve on my face like some uneven skin tone. But as far as light basis I actually really like this. The creamy texture feels comfortable and lightweight on skin. The shade light medium matches my skin tone perfectly. My first impression is this product gives a sheer to light coverage and I would consider this more of a tinted moisturizer than a primer because of the coverage it gave. Since the coverage is sheer it would probably match a number of skin tones even with limited color choice.

At the end of the day, my thoughts is that I’m loving the glow, smell and longevity on the whole. It’s worth checking out if you’re looking for a skin tint that moisturizing and gives a natural but glowy finishing look. I recommend you try this!

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte
Walmart

Last but not least is the L’Oreal Color Riche Matte Lip Liner in Matte Stermind. The name might sound a little cheesy but the product is amazing. I feel in love with this lip liner the very moment I did color swatch as shown here and upon applying it on my lips. It’s so good, so creamy and so full color.

The tip is an old fashion skinny pencil sharpener lip liner. But the fact that it goes on easily and I can fill my entire lips with it, I’m happy.

Color Riche Matte Lipliner

It goes on velvety smooth and I love how opaque it looks on lips. It doesn’t tug or pull and it’s matte.  This creamy matte lip liner is available in the range from nudes to bolds. I’ll be going back to pick a few brighter shades for the coming holidays. Don’t wait, this is a great product you don’t want to miss.

Have you tried any of this product? If yes which one and let me know what you think in the comment.

I hope this was helpful for you guys. Thank you so much for taking your time to read. I really appreciate it. Bye guys!

Sharon xoxo
