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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi, there my lovelies! Hope you had a lovely Saturday! Today I want to take the time and talk about the Catch the Light Highlighter from Wander Beauty.

Descriptions: It is a precise soft-focus highlighter that retails for $25.  It’s great to apply to hard-to-reach areas, such as underneath the brows, the inner corner of the eye are, and the Cupid’s bow. It is also Infused with vitamins and antioxidants, as is made to nourish and hydrate the skin. Wear it on bare skin or over foundation for a glowy look.

Verdict: I love the highlighter. I specially wear it when I am not wearing when I am not wearing any makeup and going for a no-makeup makeup look and just want the subtle yet radiant finish. I bought the moon highlight and I really like it. It’s a subtle shimmer and that’s what I was looking for.  Most of all, it’s portable, hence you can just put it in your purse.

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.

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.
