11 Jun

Hello everyone! A super fun post today showing an amazing looking product. ^_^

Description: A cute cat-themed corally blush.

Review: OMG, can’t you see how cute this is? I had to have it of course it’s so gorgeous that I really didn’t want to use it but what’s with not using pretty makeup? This product actually has a glitter overspray that goes away after about 2-3 uses. The shade is a natural coral shade on the cheeks and the texture is very smooth on the cheeks. As you can tell in the swatch it actually isn’t very pigmented but you can build up the blush color. This stayed on my skin for 6-8 hours which is fantastic for a Korean drugstore product. Overall, a VERY cute blush that I have issues of not using enough because of how it looks.

Cost: $18-23CDN @ ebay.ca

Would I recommend this product? For the makeup collector this would be a great and fun addition to your collection but for people who plan on using this everyday you may be sad when the design is all rubbed away (like I will be in the future).

Review: MAC Lipglass in Lychee Luxe

24 Apr

Hello everyone!

Description: Lychee Luxe is a coral with gold shimmers.

Review: MAC’s lipglosses have a reputation of being sticky and not easy to work with but I disagree. I like that they are sticky and hard to work with because it just means that the staying power is longer than most slippery lipglosses. I got 4 hours wear time with the usual drinking and talking. And as you can tell from the swatch it is a nice warm shade of coral and just brightens up the face. This has a tendency to clump when it reaches some dried skin on the lips so smooth lips are a must. All of MAC lipglosses have a vanilla scent to them which is a nice bonus. Overall, a great gloss just don’t wear this gloss on windy days as your hair will stick to it indefinately.

Cost: $18CDN @ maccosmetics.ca or counters at The Bay

Would I recommend this product? Yes! This is a great everyday lipgloss that would look great with all kinds of skintones.

Review: ELF Natural Radiance Blushers

18 Jun

Hello everyone! The last ELF review for this time around (I will be repurchasing more ELF products and hopefully also order some products from the Studio line next time).

(Glow, Flushed)

Review: As you can tell the blushes are pretty pigmented except Glow which sometimes shows up or sometimes doesn’t show up on my skintone. These blushes are silky smooth as well and they are great blushes with no scent. Glow is a coral color with golden glitters in it (not huge glitter but there is some) and Flushed is a nice raspberry shade with slight glow (silver shimmer is what it looks like) and both shades work great for lighter to darker skintones. It lasts for quite some time I can get about 8 hours if I’m not moving much (office day) and about 5-6 hours if I’m moving about more (exercising). Again packaging is pretty bad it’s a slide out packaging and Glow got stuck on mine which is why it’s all powdery and broken.

Cost: $1.00USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? Yes very definately despite the packaging it’s a great product for little cost!

Guess who’s back?

5 Mar

Yeah! I’m back to blogging!!! I felt like the time I took off from blogging was horrible!! I think I have found my addiction…. I’ll add blogging into my list of addictions… and I thought I was trying to quit!!

Putting all that aside all the posts this week starting from Sunday were posts that I scheduled before-hand so I’m glad to be back. Some pretty exciting things is going to happen next weekend so I’m preparing this weekend for next week if that makes any sense. So the plan for next week will be post every other day and I have changed the face of the site… I’ll see how much I like it and if not I’ll change it back.

The plan:

Saturday ( Mar 6 ) – Blog post

Sunday ( Mar 7 ) – Beauty review

Monday ( Mar 8 ) – Blog post with a super exciting surprise!!!

And so goes on the week… I’m going to stop for two days so that I can focus on the preparations for the Super Exciting Surprise Event which you will all know on Mon. ^_^ So the day that I will stop blogging is…. let’s see Wed March 10 and you’ll know why I will need to stop.

Anyways, so excited for the Super Exciting Surprise Event on Sat. Mar 13. ^_^ I’ll do my best to take some photos but we’ll see. ^_^

But putting all the planning aside I have discovered some things today!

1. Michelle Phan put out another video this time in celebration of Tim Burton’s new film Alice in Wonderland!! I want to go see that movie but I have no time and theatres scare me… anyways, here is the video

2. The Body Shop has released out some of their Spring makeup collection online! There were only two things that caught my eye…

 A reusable bag for $5.00CDN AND….

 It’s a cheek stamp! And it comes in two colours… Rose and Coral. They kinda remind me of Etude House’s blush from a few years ago…

 Only Etude’s has nice pink packaging. Anyways, the Body Shop one is $14CDN kinda pricey for a blush but I would really love to try it out.

Well, that will be it for today… I posted a lot of stuff…. anyways off to clean and work on some Japanese homework.

Beauty Intro: Joe Fresh Beauty

26 Feb

This is going to be another branch in the beauty section of my blog. Beauty intros are introductions to a companies products that I would like to try and I will also post other peoples thoughts on them. Most of peoples thoughts will come from MakeupAlley. Companies that I will review will most likely be from drugstore companies and maybe some higher end brands such as MAC or Shu Uemura.

So Joe Fresh beauty… not much is known about it as it is a specifically a Canadian drugstore brand that is only found at Loblaws or Superstores across the nation.

They have a wide range of products and all the products are under $10CDN. Some of the most listed or wanted products include cheek tint, tinted lip balm, felt tip liner, cream lipsticks, and eyeshadow.

The products that really stick out for me are:

Cheek tint in Nude, Peach, Pink, Cherry, Berry and Bronze. $4CDN

Blushes in pink (review coming up), pale peach, plum, berry, and rose. $6CDN

Fine Liquid eyeliner in black or brown. $6CDN

Lip stain in sheer pink, candy, peach, apple, watermelon, and cinnamon. $6CDN
