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.

March Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy8.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Saturday. Today I want to talk to you about the March 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 March Ipsy Glam Bag comes in a light peach makeup bag with the following five products: Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer, Tarte cosmetics tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in vibin, ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black, Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa, and Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush.

Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer: I love the fact that this moisturizer is packed with antioxidants and I have sensitive skin but like trying new products. This one didn’t dry my skin out.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tarte cosmetics tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in vibin: This lip paint has velvet matte finish and is neither too matte nor too glossy. I really enjoy the color and it lasted all day! However, It’s a dry formula, and it came off in flakes. To counteract that I wear my Eos balm as a base, which really keeps my lips moisturized.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black: This is a long-wearing, water-resistant formula that doesn’t smudge, budge, or transfer. However, it’s really wobbly and hard to draw with. I am always afraid that it will break anytime. I am really disappointed with this one. I would rather use a liquid liner.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa: This is a shimmery rose colored shadow and gives a nice subtle tone to your eyes. However, for a more dramatic look first just spray your brush with a setting spray. I am an eyeshadow fanatic and love that this shadow glides in smoothly and does not flake. However, I really do not like the fact that it has talc it. I am not a fan of talc, hence I am not happy about it.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush: This is a nice soft brush. However, I am really disappointed that I didn’t choose brushes in my preference but was still sent brushes.

Overall, I am disappointed with the March Ipsy Glam Bag. However, I really like the makeup bag, the moisturizer, and the Tarte lip stain. I am hoping for a better bag next month as the last few bag did not disappoint me.

Do you like beauty products and love products each month, then just click on the link here and sign up for ipsy to get your beauty bag each month for just $10 per month.

What is your favorite item in your Ipsy bag?  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.

Have You Tried the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills?


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi there my lovelies! Happy Friday everyone! Are you guys excited about the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills? It retails for $40. After that Glow Kit, I was really excited about this new product. Hence, as soon as it became available, I had to get my hand on one of them.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: This new limited addition to the Anastasia Beverly Hills collection is created in collaboration with YouTuber Nicole Guerriero, and contains six metallic powder highlighters.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Verdict: What can say about this palette! This is a beautiful metallic glow kit. Some of the shades were little of golden for me. However, the shades are buttery and creamy. A lot of these shades make beautiful eyeshadow and I use them as such. I just spray my brush with setting spray before picking up the highlighter. As for highlighter little goes a long way.

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

Did Someone Say Chocolate?


Hi there my lovelies! Happy Hump Day everyone! Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday! Do you like Chocolate! What am I saying? Everyone likes chocolate. Hence, when I saw the Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette from Too Faced, I had to get it. Today, I will just go over my experience with you.

Description: This is a beautiful palette that is encased in a playful chocolate bar tin containing 16 matte and shimmering shades scented with real chocolate smell. The palette contains rich selection of browns, neutrals, and a little pop of color.

Verdict: The good thing about this palette is that it is a beautiful palette and the colors are nice. There are mattes, shimmers, glitters, and satin finishes so I can see this working on a lot of different people. Additionally, it is made of really cocoa. Hence, the anti-oxidant properties of cocoa is great and not to mention the smell. However, the negative aspect of the palette includes that couple of the swatches (white chocolate, and strawberry bon bon) just disappeared on my skin. Moreover, Candied Violet also went on sheer and had to be layered for good pigmentation. As far as neutrals go, this palette lacks lacking taupe-type shades. Also, if you do not like the smell of chocolate this palette is not for you. Furthermore, some of the shades can be really flaky and can have a lot of fallout, which can be annoying. However, in order avoid fallouts  make sure to tap your brush well on or you will have flakes under your eyes to clean up.  I personally think that this palette is more for neutral everyday look. However, if you are looking for a bolder look, go with the Semi Sweet or the Chocolate Bon Bon  palette. Overall, this is a nice with beautiful smell. Just make sure that you apply the glittery shades wet for them to show up well.

What is you favorite Too Faced Eyeshadow palette? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

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.

Verdict: What can I say about these loose dust. A little but goes a long way! I absolutely love these shimmery, glittery loose dust. 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. In conclusion, I am very happy with this collection.
