Power of the Petal – Sephora Favorites


sephora3

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had wonderful Saturday. I have been sick for the past two weeks from severe cold and sinus. However, I am back to share with you today one the items I got from Sephora. Unfortunately, it is no longer available at Sephora. It’s the Power of the Petal from Sephora Favorites

Description: This $38 set contains 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Face Lifting Soft Cream – 0.24 oz/ 7 mL Estée Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack – 0.71 oz/ 21 mL Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy – Deep Moisture (Cucumber) – 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Fresh Rose Face Mask – 0.51 oz/ 15 mL Karuna Age-Defying+ Hand Mask – 0.7 oz/ 20 mL L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate – 0.09 oz/ 2.8 mL Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask – 1 oz/ 30 mL SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. The set is worth $114.

Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Face Lifting Soft Cream: This lightweight, but intensely nourishing cream delivers visible plumping and firming hydration while leaving a matte, pearlized finish.

Estée Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack: The water-gel formula provides a power-packed punch of glow and hydration while you sleep. Pink peony, gogi berry, blueberry, and cranberry soothe, smooth, and brighten skin while hyaluronic acid hydrates. This mask can be used daily as an overnight treatment or anytime as a hydrating and energizing mask. It really keeps my skin smooth and hydrated.

Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy – Deep Moisture (Cucumber): Cucumber extract delivers high levels of vitamin C, which assist in helping to maintain moisture levels, while the Echinacea GreenEnvy contains the highest known concentration of cichoric acid—helps protect the skin by supporting natural collagen. My skin felt hydrated and healthy after the 20-minute process. Can’t recommend more!

Fresh Rose Face Mask: This hydrating and toning gel mask is infused with real rose petals, soothing rosewater, and a “smart” algae that deliver optimum moisture. I have a big fan of masks, and this almost completely absorbed into my skin. It smells good and feels great on my skin. However, I am not sure if I am not convinced enough to pay $62 for the 3.3 oz size. You can get the 1 oz for $25. I am not completely convinced yet.

Karuna Age-Defying+ Hand Mask: This hand mast contains creamy oil-serum that leaves your hands more hydrated, softer, and smoother in as little as one application. This mask is amazing. You can actually use your phone, without living any oily residue while using this mask. How cool is that! Most of all, it left my hand soft, hydrated and bright after one use. I am definitely buying this masking again. I am so glad Sephora Favorites introduced me to this mask. ‘

loccitane

L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate: The concentrate is enriched with almond oil and milk for a firmer, smoother, and hydrated looking skin. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. It is extremely moisturizing and not greasy at all. However, it is quite pricey.

Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask: This fast-acting eye treatment sheet contains pure retinol micro-infusion technology to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles in as little as 15 minutes. The stretchy material adheres nicely to visible laugh lines around the mouth too.  The eye mask brightens and smoothes under-eye area after the first use. However, it is quite pricey. It’s $65 for a pack of 12 masks. I will probably use it for special occasions.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence:  This treatment essence is enriched with more than 90 percent Pitera, the main ingredient used to enhance the skin’s renewal process. Additionally, it contains nourishing vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and acids to promote the skin’s renewal. I saw great reviews about this product. However, I did not see much difference on my skin.  I only used it a couple of times hence probably is too early to judge. However, when I look at the price of the item, I think I will pass.

My dear readers! I am really glad that I got the chance to try so many wonderful products. I am really glad that I got try these products and would like to thank Sephora for this.

What is your favorite product from here?  Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

April Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy2

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Saturday. Today I want to talk to you about the April Ipsy Glam Bag. As you know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

Description: The April Ipsy Glam Bag comes in an orange ticket stub design makeup bag with the following five products: OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush, Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter, EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip, Hey Honey Bésame Mucho Lip Balm, and THEORIE Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum.

THEORIE Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum: This is a great product for hair protectant and for shine. It’s sulfate-free and great for color-treated hair.

Hey Honey Bésame Mucho Lip Balm: It contains propolis, an extract from beehives that is both hydrates and is antibacterial. I put in on my lips at night and my lips stayed moisturized even in the morning.  It retails for $14.

EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip: The applicator was inspired by a calligraphy pen. It makes a perfect line and stays all day. I absolutely love this liner. It retails for $15.

Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter: I have a big fan of glow shimmers and highlighters, and what I like about this one is that it’s not dramatic. I love the subtle look I can create with this highlighter, but you can layer it to make it dramatic. Nonetheless, it does not last long.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush: I love blushes, and I love how subtle the blush is. However, I did not like the packaging at all.

My dear readers! Though I really love Ipsy, overall, the April Ipsy Glam Bag a disappointment to me. However, I do have to admit that I really admire the creativity of the ticket stub makeup bag. I also liked the eyeliner and even the lip balm. The other products were little meh.

Kat Von D EverLasting Lipliner VoxBox from Influenster


Katvond5

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. I have just received the complimentary #EverLastingLipliner from Kat Von D @KATVONDBeauty  in Lolita. It retails for $18 at Sephora.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: It’s a dusty rose color. This is a long wear and a matte, high-pigment formula. It is also paraben. I received this lolita everlasting lipliner Kat Von D Von Box from Influensta.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Verdict: I absolutely love this lip color. I received these products for free. It perfectly matches the Lolita lipcolor that I have. It’s soft and thin and glides on easily. However, I would not wear it alone as it can be quite drying. Nonetheless, wearing my eos as a primer takes care of that issue. If you have a drying or sensitive lips, I would highly suggest wearing a primer or light balm as a primer to combact the dryness. Otherwise, this is an absolutely amazing color that love and have received a lot of completement on.

What is your favorite lipliner? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray ($20): This is an ultra-light, leave-in conditioning spray that brings hydration and moisture to locks without weighing them down.  It is so light that you barely know you have it in. Additionally, it smells fantastic and it leaves my hair feeling really soft. However, I do recommend to use it sparingly It retails for $20.

Karuna Hydrating+ Face Mask Set of Four: It comes in a package of four beautiful, single-use, deep conditioning sheet masks to restore dry, dehydrated skin.  This cooling hydrating face mask is absolutely amazing. I have sensitive skin and break out to quite a few things. This left my skin so soft and smooth. It retails for $28.

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today want to take the time to talk to about this beautiful palette to my collection. It’s the Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette from Tarte. It retails for $40.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: This is an unicorn-inspired eyeshadow palette with 10 radiant shadows and a strobing eye and cheek highlighter. This is the latest collection from Tarte. It contains eight shimmering eye shades, a matte nude shade, and a pearl highlight shimmer.

Verdict: This is a beautiful palette that I absolutely love and adore. Use your fingers or a dense brush to apply these shadows. They go so well for a soft glam day look and you can add a liner for a night look. The wear lasts all day or all night!  I mix with some darker mattes to make a halo eye, but you can create something beautiful and unique using it alone. I have seen a lot of negative reviews about the lack of pigment. However, if you just use your finger or a flat dense brush pigmentation works great. Just try it. The shades are just superb!

What is your favorite shimmering eyeshadow palette? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

Becca Light Filter Face Primers


Hi there my lovelies. Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. How many of you want to set aside your foundation only for special occasions, yet want to have a glowing selfie all the time? If your answer is yes, then to you are in the place. Items that help me get the no-makeup makeup look are the BECCA Backlight Filter Face Primer and BECCA First Light Filter Face Primer. Each retails for $38.

Backlight Filter Face Primer: This primer acts as an instant filter and creates a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch the light for a glowing look. It is also infused with Becca’s proprietary blend of crushed pearls, creating a healthy-looking effect. This primer is perfect for that gorgeous dewy look. It’s so natural, that whenever I don’t have time to do my makeup, I just do my usual morning skincare routine and finish it with this primer.

First Light Filter Face Primer: This is a skin-awakening primer that instantly reduces the signs of a bad complexion day to leave the complexion fresh, awake, and hydrated. This makes my skin have a healthy glow from within that doesn’t look fake, or shimmery. It just makes it look healthy and hydrated. I use the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment and then two primers on top and finish with light concealer and highlighter. I got so many compliments on my look.

What do you do for a no-makeup makeup look? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.
