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.

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.

Oh, Thy Metallic Lips!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. Today I want to talk to you about my new favorite metallic lip color from Jouer. It’s Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Matte Liquid Lipstick. It retails for $18.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: This cruelty-free liquid lipstick provides all day coverage, and has a very subtle vanilla scent. It’s the papaye-metallic warm peach color gives you the trendy look that you deserve.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Verdict: The metallic papaye is a pure copper color with a nice vanilla scent. It is a bit drying on my lips. Hence, I apply a little eos as a primer. I also add it with different color lip liner to change the tone of the color as the pure copper tone does not go well with my skin tone. I also add it on top of different color lipsticks to turn them into metallic chic. Overall, I like the metallic lipstick though I’m not a big fan of the copper tone, which I address with different color lip liners and lipstick.

Are you up for metallic lip color? Please comment below. I would really like to hear your feedback.

Viseart Petit PRO Eyeshadow Palette


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. As you know I am a big eyeshadow. Hence, when I first heard about Petit PRO palette from Viseart I had to try it out. However, it I had to place my name on the waitlist for months. Despite the long wait, I finally got hold of a palette for $30.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: All Viseart Cosmetics are individually handmade in Paris, France, made of a blend of organic ingredients and modern technology to produce absolutely amazing pigmentation. The petit PRO palette is an eight-shade eyeshadow palette in versatile pigment-rich colors in matte, satin, and shimmer textures.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Verdict: I knew the palette was small but did not know that it was credit card size palette. I guess that’s why it’s called petite. However, I wanted to try the much-coveted Viseart palette with breaking my bank. The pigment is still Viseart status so it’s amazing! It is a great size for travelers and you can pack luxury in your purse! The shadow is so soft. I am glad that I have waited to get this palette. Again, you will get small shadow pans, but they are so pigmented you won’t need a lot. I am not ecstatic about the size of the palette, but I really love that this most pigmented, blendable and softest palette that I have tried so far. Additionally, I can just carry it in my purse.

Hi there my loveliness! Hope you are having a lovely Tuesday. As you may know by now, I am a big fan of glittery and shimmery eyeshadow. It just reminds me of pixie dust from Tinker Bell and all the magic associated with it. I love adding them to my collection only if find something that is worth spending my hard earned money on.  Today, I  want to talk about one such collection from a while ago. It is the Smolder Cosmetics’s Lock It in Bundle! 4 Loose Glam Dust + 1 Dazzle Lock Primer. This collection is currently not available.

In order to prevent any fallouts, I just use it with the Dazzle lock primer to keep the dust in place and to intensify the color! So far, this is the most pigmented sparkling eye shadow  I have used. I know that it will last me a long time and I will be ale to combine it with other palettes to created various different looks. Additionally, I get individual shades for $9.

The Versatile Nocturnal Shadow Box from Urban Decay


Hi there my lovelies! Happy President’s Day to everyone. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. How are you spending your long weekend? I spent mine sipping my favorite Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks. I thought I spend a part of the day talking to about a product that I recently had a chance to try out: the Nocturnal Shadow Box from Urban Decay.

Description: This is a limited edition eyeshadow palette that comes in 12 shades and retails for $29. The palette has eight must-haves from UD’s current collection and four exclusives from past sets, including three of the most-requested shades from past vice palettes.

udecay7

Verdict: As expected from Urban Decay, this palette delivers beautiful and versatile shades. While it has natural shades, it also has bold and bright shades that make this palette stand out from others. The colors blend so easily and are creamy as well. The only one thing that I have an issue with, is that the darker shades can be really flaky and can have a lot of fallout, which can be annoying. However, in order avoid fallouts from the darker shades make sure to tap your brush well on or you will have flakes under your eyes to clean up. They layer well, so take your time. Due to the flakes and fallouts, I give this palette four stars. Otherwise, I absolutely love it.

Foxybae Hair Straightening Brush: Does It Really Work?


foxybae4

foxybae5.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Today, I want to talk about a hair straightening brush that I have tried recently and give my honest opinion. I am talking about Foxybae Hair Straightening Brush. Hope this will help you decide if you really want to go for a straightening brush.

foxybae3.jpg

Description: I have told you before, I have stubborn thin and wavy hear. I have actually proud on my waves because I get quite compliments on them. However, what I hate is that no heating products can tame that wave. Hence I am always looking one that can straighten it without burning them. When I saw an only promotion to be able to buy this product for less than $50, when the actual price is $149.95 I took advantage of the offer, hoping it will work on hair. The brush actually looks quite luxurious and has a LED display and heats up to a safe 365°F in mere seconds (max temp of 232°C/450°F) simply brush your hair to distribute heat and straighten without damaging your tresses in the process. It automatically heats to 365°F. You can change the temperature up and down using the temperature control.

Verdict: Does this brush really work. My one-word response to this is “Meh”. I have seen YouTube review raving about Foxybae. I actually found the results with my Instyler much better. My hair is much shinier with the Instyler too. However, I do admit that did not fill the heat with this brush. With my Instyler, if I am not careful I will see smoke coming out of my hair. This is one thing that I really like about this brush that my hair doesn’t burn while styling. In conclusion, who I wasn’t impressed with the straitening part of the brush, I did like the part that it’s safer on my hair than other heating products. Overall, I don’t waste your money if you are looking for a straightening product that gives straitening, shine and volume. Go with the Instyler, which does all the three.

What is your favorite hair styling product that you would recommend? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday so far. Today, I wanted to share with you, my thoughts on the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip collection. This collection is available at Sephora for $28.

Description: The collection contains six nude lip collections to create the perfect nude lip look. The set includes two full-size and four deluxe-size nude lip essentials: Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb, Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian, Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff, Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn, Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte, and Too Faced’s Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb: This product goes on smooth with a creamy finish. It has sufficient staying power and really helps keep my lips hydrated. It’s really nude color. It’s a very smooth and buttery lipstick.

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian: This is a sheer lipgloss.  I do find it a tad sticky like a typical lipgloss and it doesn’t really hydrate but it’s certainly not drying. The color is completely nude and disappears on my lip. Of all the six in the collection, this has to be my lip favorite.

Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff: This is soft and creamy lip liner that I really like. It glides on smoothly and gives the perfect color for a barely there look.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn: I love the Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme formula. It’s very hydrating and smooth yet matte at the same time. The color also lasts a long time. Marc  Jacobs is one of my favorite lipstick brands.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte: This formula is not super drying and lasts all day.  My lips always feel moisturized. I have very happy with the color as well.

Too Faced’s Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B: Finally, this matte lipstick glides on very evenly, very smooth, and dried with a great finish. It stays on all day.  It does not come off with eating and drinking and it is still on by the end of the day.

The Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette


Hi there my lovelies! Happy hump day everyone. I thought I would add a little pizzazz to your day with my review of the Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay palette. After, reviewing the pastel goth palette I was happy to get back to my comfort zone with this beautiful palette from Tarte.

Description: This palette comes in 20 ultra-pigmented shades that are infused with Amazonian clay. It comes in 16 beautiful matte shades and 4  brand-new iridescent luster shades with a micro-shimmer, duo chrome finish.

Verdict: I saw this palette first at Sephora store and really loved the colors.  I really love the shades. When you take it out of the box it’s little flaky but it really stays put once on. Most of all, it’s blendable. The matte shadows in this palette are beyond amazing, super pigmented and buttery. The palette is very versatile and I would highly recommend this palette to everyone. This palette is definitely worth the $53. What is your favorite eyeshadow palette?
