Hello everyone! Today I have the concealers post today and thankfully once again not a lot of concealer but in each one there is a lot of product after all, you only use a little bit of concealer everyday.

Review: Joe Fresh Duo Concealer in Light

12 Jul

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I picked up any Joe products but here is one for you. For those who don’t know Joe Fresh makeup line is an exclusive (though there are talks for Joe Fresh stores to open in the US in the future) to Canadian shoppers at their local Loblaws or Superstore locations. Anyways, onto the review!

(Top: Stick, Bottom: Cream)

Review: First off I have to say that I love the idea of two products in one and this is just perfect. There’s a concealer for what type of concern you are concealer, generally liquid for the undereye area and the stick for acne blemishes or other face discoloration. Both the products work very well on the face and blends out very nicely. The cream/liquid is quite more pigmented compared to the sitck side. I feel like it’s a bit drying especially on my undereye area. Another bad thing is that I chose the wrong shade (evidently shown in the photo) so I ended using this as a color base for my eyeshadows (which work great as well it’s not as great as some other opaque bases). Another downside is that it only comes in three shades. THREE shades! Light, Medium and Dark. Kinda sad in the color selection… but overall a pretty good duo concealer please Joe release more shades!!

Cost: $8CDN @ Superstore/Loblaws

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product but for me I would like to pick up the next darker shade and give it a go. It’s a pretty good concealer and works very well I would recommend this product for sure.

Makeup as a gift?

10 Aug

Hi everyone! So I get asked a lot by my friends about getting other people makeup as a birthday present or Christmas or whenever you give presents. And I am kind of on the fence for this question. I’m going to present some thoughts that go through my brain if I was going to give makeup to my friends as presents.

1. Do NOT give makeup to friends

Reasons

– You don’t know their color likes and dislikes or you could totally pick a wrong color for their skintone.

– If your friend is a makeup collector (like me) they could possibly have the same color or product in their collection.

2. Give makeup to your friends

Reasons

– Get a makeup bag and fill it up with some goodies and if they don’t like something they always have something else.

– Give them new products to try out such as an outrageous eyeshadow color or a new lip color without them having to commit to a full-sized product.

For me I only give makeup for those starting out with makeup so for those going into highschool or prom. That is where I do the works and go shopping with them to test out shades of color and such. For those who are already into makeup I give them hard to find items (or items they wouldn’t think about getting themselves) or products that are a staple in makeup collection.

Foundation, face powder, and concealer are extremely hard to match to a person so I would stay away from them. Everything else is fair game!

Nightime Foxy look

28 Feb

It’s been a while since I’ve posted up a beauty makeup thing. So this is a neutral brown nighttime look… I should do a daytime look sometime soon. ^_^ Anyways, so here is the look:

 I look so white… O.O

So the products that I used are as following:

Face:

Maybelline Pure Makeup in Classic Ivory

Covergirl Fresh Complexion Concealer in no idea what shade

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder

Eyes:

Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte (all colors were used)

NYX Slim Eyeliner in Black

Joe Fresh Eyeshadow in Black (to set the eyeliner which has a tendency to smudge)

Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara in very Black (as if I can get black enough)

Cheeks:

Joe Fresh Blush in Pink

N.Y.C. Bronzer in Sunny (discontinued by the way)

Lips:

Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Tender Sheer (sample size)

Hmmm… in the picture you can’t really tell that I have on bronzer and blush…. maybe I gotta pick up more product but I guess it was due to flash that the colors got washed out. That’s what happens when you go on a nightime look that isn’t really nightime…

Anyways, I am quite pleased with myself… I have gotten a lot better at putting on makeup and such so because of that I pat myself on the back. Hopefully I can get more colors and such so that I can try out different looks. The only colors that I actually have are white, black, browns, blues and one green color. Never done a smokey look…

Project R

8 Feb

A new project loosely based on Project 10 pan by lollipop25? I believe it was her anyways  it is a products reduction for me. Project R… and here are the products that I plan to finish:

 These ones are self-explanatory… I personally don’t reach for these colors a lot but I would love to repurchase a full size of cranberry which is pretty good. ^_^ Blackberry is too dark for an everyday look and everyone raves about Kitten but I don’t like the strong vanilla scent that comes with this lipgloss. As you can tell I’m almost done blackberry which is positive and I have used up a lot of Kitten which is also positive. I am on the way to finishing these ones though I wouldn’t mind keeping cranberry for special occasions… sadly the lifespan of these lipglosses is only a year after opening the packaging. Ah well must finish quickly and the best as I can they were expensive. >.< $38CDN for a set of 8.

 Here are the product names

1. Covergirl Wetslicks Lipgloss in Clear Radiance –  Just regular clear lipgloss… this was bought with a coupon same goes for the Amazemint one too… I use this for tutorials and stuff.

2. Covergirl Amazemint Wetslicks Lipgloss in Slaphappy – Bought with the clear lipgloss it’s pretty good but I don’t wear gloss that often everyday therefore I must try to finish it up as best as I can. I would not repurchase this one… not as good as I expected.

3. Covergirl Fresh Complexion Concealer in Light-medium(?) – I don’t remember the shade because it fell off for some odd reason but this one is a pretty good concealer just not my shade. It’s a little too pink I believe for my skin tone but I still use it to correct my blemishs. I think I’m 3/4 done it.

4. Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalash Mascara – A really clumping mascara I would not repurchase but it does the job of keeping my lashes curled.

5. Covergirl Wetslicks Fruits Spritzers in Guava (yum)  – This was a yummy flavor but I don’t find myself reaching for it very often… but still pretty yummy.

6. Nivea Lip Care Caregloss and Shine – Bought about 3-4 years ago and I know I should throw it out but I really liked this gloss back then. I like it because it actually moisterizes the lips and gives it a gloss sheen as well. Not bad for a lip balm but for me I don’t like the stickiness of it.

7. N.Y.C. Lipstick in Petal – Bought for everyday but a little too sheer and light on me. But I still use it for practicing and designing looks.

8. N.Y.C. Lipstick in Blossom – Bought specifically for a tutorial coming up soon. I still haven’t mastered the techniques for this look yet but it will come out soon!

10. Rocky Mountain Soap Company Green Apple Lip Butter – just finished this product yesterday I had this one for over 2 years and the smell was gone but the moisterizingness of it was still in it. I use it every night as a nightly moisterizer good stuff! I’ve already repurchased a replacement.

And as you can tell I can’t count properly…. yeah… positive… but anyways these are the things that I would like to finish. Anyways, these are the products that I have included… I forgot to take a photo of the face products that I would like to use up but that can wait until another beauty related update. After I finish the products I know that I probably won’t be buying anymore glosses and just focus on stuff that I would wear everyday. Well, we’ll see how the project goes on and I hope to get everything done to the best of my abilities!
