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.

February Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy7b.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! Today, I want to talk to about February Ipsy Glam Bag. As you may 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.

ipsy7

Description: The February Ipsy Glam Bag comes in a denim makeup with neon border and five products: Marsh Mineral Eyeshadow in You’re Toast, Luna Highlighter in Calypso, NYX Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry, Absolute New York Nano Eyeliner, and Biobelle Fiber Facial Masks in #Stay Gorgeous and #iWokeUpLikeThis.

Marsh Mineral Eyeshadow in You’re Toast: This 100% natural eyeshadow can be used wet or dry depending on your need for a dramatic or subtle result. The shadow retails for $22. This is a nice shimmery shade for a night out. However, I am not a big fan of the container though the shadow is very pigmented.

Luna Highlighter: The pale lavender baked highlighter is buildable and looks on every skin tone. It retails for $23. It glides on easily and creates a beautiful glow. It is highly pigmented, hence little goes a long way. I really like the subtle look it creates.

NYX Butter Lipstick: This satin finish lipstick is creamy.  It has a beautiful semi-sheer color. I love how it glides on and the color was vibrant on my lips. It is also quite moisturizing. However, it transfers easy and fades quick, not long-lasting whatsoever. The lipstick retails for $6.

Absolute New York Nano Eyeliner: This ultra fine precision liquid liner is water-, smudge-, and fade-resistant, hence stays put all day. It glides on easily. In order to test how I well liner works I try to create something with the liner on my skin so check if the liner glides on easily and the if liner can fine precision line. As you can see from the picture of the panda (something close to panda maybe?) that the lines are fine and precise. I really like that the liner is waterproof. It is very precise when you need a simple line to open up your eye look. However, it is not recommended for use when you want a thick line. It retails for $9.99.

Biobelle Fiber Facial Masks in #Stay Gorgeous and #iWokeUpLikeThis: These are all natural, biodegradable fiber that adheres face like a second skin. #StayGorgeous had almond oil that softens and moisturizes skin, while #iWokeUpLikeThis contains vitamin c, which is responsible for brighter skin. In order to use the masks, leave on for 20 minutes, then remove before the mask is completely dry. If you’re planning to moisturize after, give your skin a quick rinse, otherwise, just massage in any excess. These masks were quite refreshing, they made my skin soft. I’ve only used one so far but I loved it. Stays on your face fairly well and delivers a lot of product. I will update if there is any issue with the other mask. Each mask retails for $4.99. Hence two retails for $9.98.

In conclusion, my February Glam Bag contains  $70.97 worth of products for just $10 in a beautiful makeup bag. Do you like what you see here, when like on the link here and sign up for ipsy get your beauty bag each month for just $10 per month.

ispy

Hi there my lovelies! Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Friday so far. To be honest, I did not imagine today the way it turned out to be. However, we cannot dwell on the past.

NOTE Fragrances Pink Peony Eau de Parfum (5 mL): This larger than normal sample size has a light floral tone with a hint of citrus, jasmine, and amber musk. The smell is not overpowering. The 5 mL sample retails for $6.

Energize Your Dull Skin with Clarins Booster Energy


Hi there, my lovelies! I hope you are having a lovely Thursday. Today, I am feeling particularly blessed because I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know it’s not going to be long before I can start breathing freely again. However, that’s not the reason for the post, I want to share my review on the Booster Energy  from Clarins. This tiny little bottle carries powerful little punch to boost your skin with energy.

boost4

Description: The Booster Energy from Clarins with filled with skin reviving ginseng to minimize the sign of fatigue. You can mix it with your moisturizer, mask, serum or even foundation to revive dull skin to give it the oomph it needs to wake up. The booster is ideal for all types of skin.

boost6

Ingredients: The key ingredient in Clarins Booster Energy is ginseng, which is known for its stimulating properties. Other ingredients include Water, Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Protein, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Acetyltetrapeptide-2, Dextran.

Verdict: Due to the stress level I have been dealing with lately, my skin took the brunt of the suffering. It looks tired and dull all the time. This small little bottle helps me give the energy back to my skin it so bad needs. I remember when my dad used to the night shift, he relied a lot on ginseng extract to give him energy. You can get the same energy for your skin with Clarins Booster Energy. It has made my face appear to be more energized and fresh. I will definitely recommend this to everyone.  This small little bottle carries a big punch and is worth the $39.

Description: I really love metallic palettes because of the extra oomph it adds to your look, and Ulta’s Metals Eye Shadow Palette includes 12 versatile, stunning, and highly pigmented eye shadow shades in matte and shimmer textures. You know after trying the 12 shades from the Better Together Collection from Too Faced and Kat Von D, I was really disappointed. Hence, I hesitantly ordered Ulta’s metal palette.

ipsy2

There Hi! Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful start of your Saturday. We started the day with ice and freezing rain. So, I thought I will take full advantage of the weather, sip on hot chocolate and write my review on the December Ipsy glam bag.

ipsy6

ipsy3

ipsybag

Description: The December Ipsy Glam bag came in a hot pink envelop. When you open the envelop you get this beautiful fuzzy makeup bag that doubles as a wristlet going-out clutch! Inside the wristlet, I got Nyx prasmatic eyeshadow in Fireball PS09, Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up, Jersey Shore Cosmetics Peppermint Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm, Tarte Maracuja Oil, and Hikari Liquid Eye Liner.

nyx

Nyx prasmatic eyeshadow in Fireball PS09: Give your eyes extra sparkle and dimension with a fully pigmented metallic texture with NYX Cosmetics Prismatic Eye Shadow.

nyx-swatch

Verdict: This shadow is easy to blend, very pigmented and with primer it will last all day. The color in this shadow is amazing, and it is so easy to work with. This is a good collection. I went online to check for the price, and is available for $6 at Ulta. The fireball color is current sold out. However, for that price, it is a good shadow to have.

ciate_chloemorello042

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up: Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick combines highly-pigmented, gorgeous matte, long-wearing lip color with hyaluronic acid for its intense lip-conditioning benefits so that lips appear fuller, while feeling more supple and smooth.

The innovative precision tip effortlessly lines and fills in lips for perfect application. The lipstick is paraben, phthalates, and sulfates free.

Verdict: I love the color of the lip creme. It would look good on anyone.  It goes on so smoothly and is really well-pigmented. This lipstick is long wearing, non drying and there is no fading in the inner lip area. I have another of this from the Ciate London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set. I am glad that now I have two of this beautiful love liquid lipstick and I will use it.You can get the lipstick for $19.

New Jersey mom and beauty vet Jacquelyn Foster Quattro created Jersey Shore Cosmetics to offer safe, high-quality natural cosmetics and skincare. Her goal is to help her customers look good and make healthy choices. Champagne wishes and candy cane dreams. We’re toasting the holidays with the delish scent of peppermint and super soft pouts. Now all we need is the mistletoe. With ingredients like organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, organic peppermint eo, and vitamin e this is a good balm to have.

Verdict: I really like the feel of this lip balm and I love that it’s all natural and organic. Your lip stay smooth for 4 to 5 hours. eos is still my favorite but this is a good lip balm. I love the peppermint feeling. The peppermint was nice and mild, very smooth and hydrating. I am glad that Ipsy has introduced me to the Jersey shore hydrating balm. Get the balm for $10.

Verdict: The oil soaks into your skin, it won’t leave your face oily. This oil is helping my skin. I use it after applying my toner, and serum but before using my moisturizer. Sometimes if I am feeling lazy and want to skip a step I just mix it in with my moisturizer and it still does an amazing job. I have tried it for the past few days and I am loving it.  The sample size cost just $15.

Verdict: The liner goes on smoothly. However, the shade really isn’t for me. If you like the purple shade then this eyeliner is absolutely for you. Get it for $15.
