Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today I want to talk to about the Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decayed. I am a big fan of the Naked palettes and this is a great one to have.

Description: The palette features 12 all-new, amber-hued neutrals—including warm browns, burnt oranges, and rich siennas. These neutral to warm tones go with all skin tones.

Verdict: The Naked Palette from Urban Decade is a wonderful eyeshadow palette full of highly pigmented and blendable colors. The colors are amazing and pigmented, you don’t need to coat your brush to get the payoff and the colors are natural enough to dress them up or down. I find this palette has the best shades for smoking out your under the eye too. I absolutely love this palette.

Are you digging this new collection from Urban Decade? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.

Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a lovely Memorial Day. I want to start by giving my salute and heartfelt gratitude to all those who gave their lives serving our country and those are currently serving to protect our freedom. Today, I want to talk to you about the Girl Lip Stylo from Hourglass.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: The lip stylo contains a blend of shea butter, jojoba, mimosa, and sunflower seed. It is Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates free.

Verdict: The lip stylo is quite pigmented. It is creamy and moisturizing, natural looking and it fades away nicely. Moreover, it feels so comfortable on the lips and really sinks in while maintaining a long lasting color on the lips. The only downside to it is the price. One stylo will set you back $32. I am not sure if I am okay with that.  Other than that I love this stylo.

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

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.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

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.

Wander Catch The Light Highlighter


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.

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.

Red Love


ysl4

Hi there my loveliness! Happy Friday to everyone! I thought, what a great way to end the weekdays by talking to you, my lovely friends about my latest haul away from Sephora. I thought I would share my review with you.

Description: This month, in honor of the Heart Month and Valentine’s Day, I got three shades red lip colors. They include: Ciaté London Pretty Stix Murumuru Butter Lipstick in First Love, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick in COLOR 4 Rouge in Danger, and Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Lip Stain in COLOR 9 Rouge Laque.

Ciaté London Pretty Stix Murumuru Butter Lipstick in First Love ($20): Ciate London is a buttery and creamy lipstick in red. It goes on smooth and creamy and looks fabulous. It lasts fairly long. The case is very cute. I like how hydrating it is.  You have to layer it to get a deeper color.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick in COLOR 4 Rouge in Danger ($37): YSL is really one of my favorite brands. I really love how rich and creamy it is, and it is very super easy to apply. It is infused with 65 percent oils with deeply hydrating texture. I love this sheer lipstick and have it in few different shades. The only sad part is it does not last long, but I am okay it is because how it is hydrating to the extreme and I will take over long-lasting color for my extra dry lips. It’s a sheer lipstick but definitely buildable. One of the best thing I love about this lipstick is the smell. It smells so fresh. I highly recommend this lipstick if you can splurge.

Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Lip Stain in COLOR 9 Rouge Laque ($36): This lip color offers the shine of a gloss with a long wear of a stain. However, I am not sure it is worth the price. Out of the three lip colors that bought this is my least favorite. I do admit that it does last a long time. However, it does wear off very easily if you touch your lips with anything which I do and I am not sure if I am going to buy this again. If your New Year resolution is to spend your money wisely then don’t spend it on this.

Sephora Favorites Beauty After Last Call


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Today I want to write about the Sephora Favorites Beauty After Last Call collection. This collection is worth $104 for the price of just $36.  The collection includes a face mask, vitamins, lip balm, corrector, highlighter, face primer, and lash primer.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Opal: This is a liquid highlighter that gives skin a dewy look. I love the shimmer it gives. I have always been a fan of Becca highlighters and the glow it creates.

Sephora12.jpg

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Tinted Primer in Mink Brown: This mink primer defines, and primes lashes for a natural, feathery look. I have never used a lash primer before and can definitely see the difference it creates.  It is water-resistant and conditions lashes with provitamin B5.

sephora7

Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil in Illuminate and Sharpener: This is a good sharpener to have in my collection. This is a good sharpener. The illuminate pencil  is ideal for all skintones. You can use it for highlighting cheekbones, the inner corners of the eyes, or brow bones—and any feature you want to spotlight your features. I love the two items together. The best thing that I love about this pencil is that it’s really creamy and it glides on smoothly.

Dr. Jart+ Dermask Intra Jet Firming Solution: This gel mask is activated by body heat to release the beneficial ingredients infused within.  This mask made my skin hydrated, happy, tightened and glowing.  Washed face with water, applied the mask (soaking wet with the product out of the bag), waited 40 minutes. While it was on my face, it felt perfectly heavy with product. The two part mask was very helpful for staying on my face. Overall, I loved the product.

sephora3.jpg

Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Blend in Mint Chocolate Chip Infusion: This powder is supposed to be radiant skin and healthy metabolism. I added it to milk. The powder doesn’t mix well, but that doesn’t bother me. However, I couldn’t taste the chocolate chip. I just tasted like green tea to me. Since I only had it once, I didn’t feel any difference. I am not sure if I am going to order this product again.

Sephora10.jpg

SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primer Water: This is a two-in-one primer and setting spray that hydrates, preps, and refreshes skin. I use to refresh my skin. I won’t say to run and buy it but if you want to try something new, why not. If you have dry skin you may love it.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea quench lip rescue in Nude:  This is a tinted lip balm that is infused with an antioxidant and vitamin-rich lip quencher. It is powered by a blend of essential extracts and oils, and a protective antioxidant barrier against daily aggressors. It keeps my lips hydrated for a good 4 hours before I have to re-apply the balm.

My Favorite Beauty Products of 2016


20161229_17040820161229_170331Hi There! Hope you are having a wonderful day. It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of 2016. With only a day till New Year, I thought I would take the time and share with you – my beloved and wonderful readers – my favorite beauty products from 2016. They are by no means the best-selling or the most popular beauty products but I have come to appreciate them and enjoy them over the past year.

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit – That Glow ($40)

abh

Description: This is one of the most popular collections from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This glow kit contains four metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity. The kit is currently sold out everywhere. You can add your name to the waitlist and get notified once the kit is available.  Layer shades of Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit, or wear them separately, on the face and body for a radiant glow.

that-glow-glow-kit-b

Verdict:  This is hands down one of my favorite beauty products from 2016. This is such an amazing product. They are such high quality, it’s incredible. It’s so smooth and buttery can be worn so it looks natural or so you can be seen from the moon. I have That Glow color and it has a great mix of colors. The colors are super pigmented and are really easy to blend. The colors are long-lasting as well. I have medium skin tone and I can wear all of the colors except bronzed as a highlight but they all look good as eyeshadows as well.  If you can get your hands on this product I would highly recommend it for everyone.

glowkit2

2. Oval Brush Set ($15.99) at Amazon

oval

Description: Oval Brushes have become quite popular this year, and if you are like me you will try out anything new in the beauty world just to discover the hype for yourself. I have been using this Yoseng 10 Pcs New fashionable Super Soft Oval Toothbrush Makeup Brush Set the past 6 months and I absolutely love it. These brushes come in various color design, and are made with high quality synthetic hair providing superb ability to hold powder, liquid and creams.

oval2

Verdict: To be honest, when it comes to face make-up I know no longer use my old love, kabuki brushes. I have these oval brushes they blend the make-up so much better.  However, when it comes to eye-makeup, I am still more comfortable with the old make-up brushes. It perhaps have to do with my lack of hand flexibility to maneuver the brushes to do eye make-up post my hand surgery but I just love using my old eye makeup brushes more.  If you are willing to try new brushes click on the link above and try out these oval brushes.  I would highly recommend the oval brushes to everyone. I love beauty I am always looking for a quick way of doing things. Hence I am I find these brushes more time saving then the beauty blenders. Perhaps it’s the artist in my talking but it’s the brushes are designed to give your better control.

3. BH Costimetics’ Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Palette($14)

galaxy2-e1479860148335

Description: This palette includes a range of out of this world colors that work for everyone. From everyday neutrals to vibrant hues, your look will undoubtedly be Galaxy Chic!

galaxy-swatch

Verdict: If you have not tried this eyeshadow palette yet you should order as soon as possible. Trust me my beautiful friends, for $14 you will not go wrong with this investment. The colors are so beautiful and blendable. I have absolutely fallen in love with this palette. Even our friends at Allure cannot stop raving about this popular product from 2016. It’s basically every shimmer you need.

4. Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette($49)moondust

Description: This eyeshadow palette takes glittery eye looks to a whole new level. Laced with micro-fine bits of iridescent sparkle and lush 3-D metallics, these shadows create a gorgeous, diamond-like effect.

urban-decay-moondust-palette-swatches

Verdict: I know I am just an eye shadow fanatic but this is another of my favorite beauty product from 2016. I love everything about this palette: from the gunmetal case to the beautiful and sparkly shadows. I know that my mom have tried to steal this palette from me whenever she has gotten the chance.

moondust25. MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Powder ($33)

blush

Description:This is a liquid-powder highlighter that gives a luminous, well-defined finish. I got the one in Beaming Blush. It is designed to sculpt and highlight your face.

blush

Verdict: To be honest, I like it better than Anastasia Beverly Hills illuminators. That being said, this powder does not replace the glow it, which is a versatile product. I have not stopped using it so far.  It blends flawlessly over the skin to add radiance and shimmer. It looks beautiful when the light catches it. I am so glad that I walked in the Mac store at Union Station on November 23rd and was recommended this powder.

blush26. MAC Prep + Prime Colour Correcting SPF 30 Primer ($31)

recharge

Description:This is an oil-controlling tinted primer, color corrector and sun protectant. This is a multitasking formula that evens skin tone, increases luminosity and inhibits oily shine while protecting from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This moisturizing primer also keeps skin fresh and hydrated throughout the day.

primer

Verdict: I got the color Recharge because of my horrible dark circles and it does wonders covering it. I use concealers along and the color corrector from Tarte, which is so dark. However, this one can just use it by itself when I am lazy I just use to instantly lighten my dark circle and just and my hyper-pigmentation and just leave home with a light foundation power. I loved this so much I just ordered this online again. I am completely dependent this primer because I can dab this on to cover my dark circle even when I am too lazy to wear make-up.

primer27. Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills ($42)

renaissance

Description: This palatte puts a present-day take on Renaissance colors, this eye palette features 14 shades that let you create stylish, day to night looks.

s1820406-main-lhero

Verdict: I absolutely love the palette because of the versatility of the color and look your can get from the palette. The shadows are very pigmented and a little goes a long way! They are also very buttery and incredibly easy to blend. My only problem is sometimes it’s too easy to over-blend. I usually blend my shadows a lot, but for these, I need to blend very lightly or else they blend out too much. If you think about it, it is less expensive than a lot of other comparable palettes which is nice.

8. Loreal EverPure Volume Shampoo and Conditioner 

influenster2

Description: Thanks to Influenster VoxBox, I found my new haircare best friend. As I have shared with you earlier I have very thin, color-treated and hard to adjust hair.However, when I receive the Loreal Ever Pure VoxBox it was easier for me to try because of crueltry-free, vegan poduct. Additionally, color-treated hair requires special care. This formula is especially gentle on color. There are no harsh sulfates, salts, or surfactants that can strip, dull and damage hair. One can experience a purely sensational luxurious lather and a fresh aromatic fragrance that bloom. EverPure is 100% sulfate-free, Paraben-free, and vegan with no animal derived ingredients or by-products.

influenster4

Verdict: My hair absolutely loves this product and since I have started using EverPure I have been using less, and less hairs. Yes! My beautiful and wonderful readers, you have heard me right. In fact, by my calculation, my hair loss has reduced by greater than 50%. I cannot ask for anything more. The smell is nice and I loved the lather it formed. At end my hair felt light and alive at the same time. The beautiful readers, thanks to influenster, my hair just found a new best friend. The best part is the product is vegan and cruelty free. Overall, I absolutely love EverPure Volume shampoo and conditioner. My hair now can breathe freely.

20161216_134657

Verdict: I actually got two of these: one through the Ciaté London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set from Sephora and the second through the Ipsy December Glam bag. I am so that I was introduced to this lip color and it is beautiful.   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, nondrying 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.

Brazilian Kiss Lip Butter: Worth the Price?


sol2

Hi There! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday morning. Here in the Washington D.C. metro area we are in the the upper 30s with heavy rain but cannot complaint. It is hard to believe that the year is almost over. I am so much to be thankful for this year. I am very thankful for my wonderful family and friends and for having such wonderful readers like you and your support. Today, I am reviewing this new lip balm came across at Sephora.

sol

Description: I heard about the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter online and hence ordered from Sephora for $18. According to the website, the lip butter nourishes lips for a soft, supple feel, and is powered by a blend of extraordinarily nourishing cupuaçu butter, antioxidant powerhouse açaí, and super-conditioning coconut oil, it leaves lips traced with a Brazilian caramel scent. This product is formulated without PEG’s, synthetic colors, animal by-products, and propylene glycol. It leaves your lip soft with a dewy sheen that intensifies your natural lip color.

sol4

Ingredients: Cupuaçu Butter to lock in moisture with fatty-acids, phytosterols, and polyphenols; Acai – the antioxidant powerhouse packed into one super fruit helps keep skin looking and feeling young, Coconut Oil that melts easily into skin to soften, condition, and moisturize; Organic Helianthus Annuus Seed (Sunflower) Oil, Beeswax, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Olea Europea (Extra Virgin Olive) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuaçu), Euterpe Oleracae (Açai) Extract Organic, Cannabis Sativa Seed (Hemp) Oil, Butter, Flavor, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Tocopherol, Aloe Vera.

sol3

Verdict: It came is yellow, color box. As per description, when I opened the lid I was expecting a caramel scent but I don’t know if it is just me, all I smelled is just buttery smell. It left my lips soft and supple. However, is it worth the $18? For me, the answer is no. Eos lip balm (read my review here) is still number one and it only cost $3.99. My beautiful readers, if you ask me, I’ll tell you not to spend $18 on this product. Eos is still better this Brazilian Kiss. I even like. My family and I also love Rosebud Perfume Co. Minted Rose Lip Balm (read me review here), except for it’s extremely hard to open lid.

sol5

My beautiful readers, the good things about the Brazilian lip balm are that it is soft, moisturizing, glides easily, long lasting, and makes your lips feel supple. However, the biggest con for the balm is the cost. For $18, I will not get a balm that smells like butter and does not provide me anything new. I got one just for my dad so that I can ask him which one he would prefer, and he ranked the Brazilian lip balm after Eos, and Rosebud Perfume Co. In conclusion, I would not recommend this lip butter if you are looking for something new and better. However, if you don’t care about the price and are okay with another good addition to your lip balm collection than go for it.
