Youtube Made Me Buy It – Makeup Products

 

Hi guys! If you’ve been following my blog, you may already know that I’m a makeup addict, and for most of you who have no knowledge of my beauty product addition! Just so that you know, in fact next to reading blog posts on all different topics, watching beauty bloggers on YouTube is something else that I love. And yes, I take their opinions seriously!

I found out, on YouTube of course, makeup products they swear by it. So, here’s Youtube made me buy it products.

I did my Sephora online order recently using ebates cash back for 4% returns and for those of you who aren’t familiar with ebates, click here to find out more. I’ll also put a link down below if you care to check it out. In case you’re wondering, no I’m not paid or affiliated with ebates. I’m sharing good news of earning cash back as you shop.

Sorry I went tangent, let’s get back to the point. I got Nars Radiant Concealer and Sephora Matte Lip Color, while the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea skincare travel set has been sitting in the storage room for a couple of months because I didn’t got the time to try all of them out. So sorry about that guys! There are so many products that I wanted to test run for you guys but with so little time.

Sephora Luster Matte Long Wear Lip Color in Ruby Luster. You can get them at Sephora and there’s 12 colors to choose from.

I’ve never tried any Sephora brand lipsticks before and I was super excited to give this a test run the moment I got it in my hot paws.

I really like the applicator because it’s a flat doe tip so it’s very easy to line your lips and just turn it over flat to fill in the color. It doesn’t have any scents at all, that’s actually a good thing because like most lip products the scents lingers.

What is it? 

  • It’s a matte liquid lipstick with a subtle sheen
  • It’s long wearing and hydrating
  • Has rose seed hip oil
  • $16 at Sephora

It’s the most pretty bold matte color that you must have in your life.  The color is so pigmented and long wearing. Definitely feels lightweight on the lips as if not wearing anything at all. I like how comfortable it make my lips feel. It doesn’t feel sticky whatsoever but you’ve to be extra careful when applying this. A precision hand is required so that the product won’t stick on your teeth. Overall, I find it glides on smoothly and the best thing is that it gives you a pretty nice kissable lips. Don’t you think?

It doesn’t dry down to completely matte as you can see here, I actually kind of like the slight luster of it. It’s subtle and not drying on lips and it doesn’t give the matte finish I was expecting. I wore it the other day when I picked up my son and I got so many compliments from other moms.

Bottom line: This is not really a con because it says it’s a luster matte. So it’s not Matte guys. If you want matte go for the Matte Lip Creams by sephora collection. In conclusion, I really love this lip color. It looks flattering on me and the claims are on point. So yay!

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Custard. I got a deluxe size for now because I want to try out this shade before committing to the full size.

I think this is the product that I’m most excited out of my three purchase. I’ve been wanting to try out Nars concealer for a while now and this will hopefully be one of my first purchases in the line if all goes well.

I’m always on the hunt for new concealer products to try, so when I saw one of my favorite youtuber raved about it, I’m down to give it a shot. I’ve been dying to try this out and boy was I impressed with the full coverage on the under eye areas. It’s creamy and works very well with any foundation. I didn’t notice any crease or crack from this product. Also, it’s multi functional which I really appreciate.

Let me just say that this is a pretty custard shade which I really like. I really like that it covers my dark under eyes circle very well and it looks fresh on the skin. I want to point it out that the formula could be a little bit thick and heavy but if you use a beauty blender like I did to blend, you wouldn’t have any problem because it blends out really easily.

I’ll definitely get a full size tube on this one.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in Make a Splash Hydrating Skin Saver travel set (LE). Whew! That’s quite a mouthful! I got the set awhile ago and the last time I checked, they’ve something similar which is also a limited edition of the Hydration Vacation Skincare travel set.

This product has me very excited.

Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer – My skin has always been at some level of dehydration. That’s part of the reason with me having a dry to combination skin. At my age, I’ve lost the overproduction of oil and developed dryness quite drastically. So, I was very keen to give it a test run.

It’s thin and gel like but it’s very hydrating. This is a formula that dry skin users will benefit most from. It quickly absorbs into skin without leaving been greasy or oily. It just leave my skin with a nice glow that isn’t shiny but dewy finish. It’s actually great for both day and night use which is a rarity in the gel moisturizer world .

Another thing I want to mention is that it has a slight lavender scents which I wouldn’t be very concerned about. But if you’re someone who doesn’t like scented or fragrance smell in your skincare products then you might want to skip this.

All in all, I’m very happy to have try this. It’s a very nice gel moisturizer and considerably more hydrating than other gel moisturizers I’ve had the pleasure of using in the past. This is such a great treat for my dry skin.

Deep Dive Cleansing Gel – It removes make-up and leaves my skin feeling clean & baby soft. One important factor is the fragrance. This is “lavender oil-infused” and has a lavender that’s very pretty and relaxing. However, like I mentioned earlier if you’re sensitive users then you might not love this.

A product that marketed for all skin-types. It claims to remove makeup, soften, hydrate and brighten skin tone thanks to Vitamin C. It does a good job removing foundation and color cosmetics and rinses clean away.

It works well as a cleanser should be but I find it to stripe the moisture out after use from my ever drier skin. Anyways, I’ll continue to use it till its empty.

Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Mist – This is the third product from this travel set. With my dry skin situation, I welcome and am a fan of a more dewy makeup look so I like this product.

According to Tarte’s website it says as follows: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist is a new four-in-one facial mist that acts as a primer, makeup setting spray, hydrating mist, and skin refresher. So far, I’ve tried only with the misting and I can say it feels refreshing and the mist is an even mist, which I appreciate. From my experience, this is a good product for my combination skin. It keeps my makeup intact.

I’ll be working on trying it out as a primer the next coming days. I’ll report back on the development once I get more use of the product.

I really hope that you enjoy reading my latest post. So glad to find these products to be actually working on me. Shout out to the Youtubers that made me buy it.

Yes to grapefruit – Underrated Skincare Product – Review

 

What’s up you guys! Today, I’ll be talking about a skincare product that has been under the radar. I find this product to be underrated. It’s a good product that not so many people talk about it enough.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t really heard anyone talks about it. I think it’s so good. I really like it that it makes my skin feel hydrated and helps on my uneven skin tone at the same time. I just love how it make my skin looks and feel.

On a side note, Yes to … products are always 100% free of toxic ingredients. Rest assure that their products are at least 98% natural, free of parabens, and made with recyclable materials. By the way this brand is not tested on animals (cruelty free) and vegan free, in case you’re wondering.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a bunch of products and solution to your every skin types. You can find ‘YES TO‘ store, online, Amazon and in almost every drugstore, mass and grocery outlet.

It says here on their website about the product description: Yes To Grapefruit Even Skin Tone Moisturizer is clinically proven to help diminish the appearance of dark spots in four weeks! It contains Moringa oil which apparently is a great conditioning ingredient that boosts radiance with fatty acids while grapefruit helps to decrease the appearance of age spots.

I’m always looking for ways to brighten up my skin and this moisturizer is life changing for me. I’ve an uneven skin tone on my cheek for the longest time and I hated it. I’ve tried many products but all had gone to waste. But after religiously applying Yes to grapefruit for the past 2 weeks, just look at the result. This may sound crazy but it’s amazing. I’m very impressed!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After trying for 2 weeks, here’s my two cents on this product.

It does a great job at moisturizing. I like that it has a thinner yet creamy texture to it. It absorbs easily into my dried skin without leaving behind a greasy or oily finish. In my opinion, the formula might be too rich for oily skin type person but if you’re dry skin, then you’re going to love it.

Granted the smell of this product is pretty strong but it goes away quickly. I’m usually very sensitive to strong smells but this I can tolerate. It’s not bad at all, you can smells the scents of grapefruit combined with bitter orange extract.

Don’t be scared by the slight whitish cast as you apply them …that goes away too as you blend them in. So far, I’m very happy with this product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like it despite reading some negative reviews about it. I think this moisturizer needs more love and for something that actually works, the question is why not! That’s right, I’m shouting from my roof top that you should run and get it. I highly recommend it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let me know if this is the kind of post you want to read in my blog, then I can do it more often. There’s so many beauty products that get so much hype on the internet but there’s a ton that doesn’t get enough hype. They’re so good and nobody talks about it!

Has anyone try it? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comment.

Okay, that complete my post today. Hope you’d enjoyed reading it.
