What I Got For Mother’s Day!

 

Oh my gosh! Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there! I hope you guys had an amazing day spending time with your loved ones. Today I’m doing a What I got for Mother’s Day post and I believe this is my first time doing this type of post. Comment below if you like to see more of this kind of post. I was excited and open them immediately so I can write this post for your guys.

So without further ado, let’s hop into what I got for mother’s day!

#YSL Mon Paris
C$118 valued for C$165

First thing and what I asked for is a YVES SAINT LAURENT Mon Paris Gift Set from Sephora. I’ve always wanted to try St Laurent’s beauty products especially their perfume and lipstick, so I’m really happy and excited when I got this from my hubs. Thanks hun if you’re reading this.

This set contains:
– 1.6 oz/ 50 mL Mon Paris Eau de Parfum
– 0.05 oz/ 1.6 g Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick in No.49
– Makeup Pouch

I love everything in this box.

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick
C$26.00 at Sephora

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Liquid Lipstick in the shades Madison which is described as a vibrant plum magenta and Naked is a light peachy nude. I’m in love with the formula. Love the consistency of a full-pigment and long wearing. This matte formula dries to a weightless powder for smudge-proof wearability. 

Color Swatches ABH

I was super excited to do a color swatch for you guys since it’s my first time trying a lip product from Anastasia. Oh boy! Can you just look how pretty these shades are. On my left is this beautiful spring shade Madison and the one next to it is Naked. I’m falling in love with them. I feel like this is so me shades. I wore the shade Madison and it lasted me for the entire day. We ate sushi for lunch and lobsters for dinner and I don’t even need to reapply this at all. This gets two thumbs up! Love it!

Glamglow Poutmud Wet Lip Balm
C$24 now selling for C$12

The next thing I got is the GLAMGLOW POUTMUD Wet Lip Balm Tint in Sugar Plum. These lip balms comes in six different colors. You guys know by now that I’m such a sucker when it comes to cute packaging and I was even more thrilled when I saw the stuff I wanted to try is on sale. Well, there’s no reason why I shouldn’t get it, right! I need this in my life. Super cute! 

For the purpose of this post, I work up early this morning just to try it out for you guys. It feels very moisturizing and soft on the lips. I like that it glides on so easily and super hydrating. It gives my lips that fresh and a little tint of color. It’s safe to say that it makes my lips looks luxurious and kissable. It’s a good lip balm to have it in your purse.  

Atelier Cologne
C$15.00

And then I also got ATELIER COLOGNE Perfume Ornament which is a random pick while shopping online at Sephora. It’s a holiday collection line and I thought the packaging is cute and I like the scents of their perfumes. I haven’t tried wear these yet but I’m going to do a separate post on perfumes in the next few weeks. So, don’t forget to stay tuned! 

In the meantime here’s the ingredients mentioned at the Sephora’s website:

Orange Sanguine, a zesty and energizing burst of crushed ripe fruit, plays off sweet blood orange juice against bitter orange peel and sensual notes of geranium. This addictive cologne brings to mind relaxed mornings, sunrises, and soft sea breezes.

Vanille Insensée, an electrical current runs through the subtle sweetness of vanilla, jasmine, and fresh lime to bond with rich oak moss, woods, and spicy coriander. This alluring cologne brings to mind breathtaking and magical moments.

Sephora Beauty Insider
500 Points 

I used up my 500 Reward Points to claim for a CLINIQUE PARTY POPS. I’m a fan of  Clinique’s products so I know this is going to keep me busy for the next few weeks. I really like all the cool stuff in this box and super excited for these. Anyways, I’ll report back once I’m finished testing them out and you can check back later in my blog.

For a quick sneak peek, here’s what I get in the reward box:

-1.69 oz/ 50 mL CLINIQUE Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips
-0.08 oz/ 2.3 g CLINIQUE Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer in Blushing Pop
-0.01 oz/ 0.34 mL CLINIQUE Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen in Black
-pins

T-shirt meme

My daughter got me this cool T-shirt that says … Yup, mom knows BEST! LOL

Last but not least, my little guy made me the most beautiful heart shaped card ever! I love all the bling bling and look how cute it is. This is the best gift ever and I loved it! I know that I’m going to treasure it for a long time to come.

So that’s about all that I’ve here for you guys, I hope you enjoyed reading and maybe this may helps you be inspired to pamper yourself or as a gift to your loved one for yet another special occasion.

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

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!
