Review: Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes in RD784

20 Feb

Hello everyone! A Japanese drugstore eyeshadow quad review today from the ever so popular Majolica Majorca line from Shiseido.

Description: A sparkling eyeshadow set that will make your eyes shine like jewels. The shades are a light yellow based glitter shadow, a pink champagne (satin), a darker pink (satin), and a deep burgandy with pink undertones (satin).

Review: Man, this palette is pretty to look at and I pretty much used it everyday when I got it. The packaging is very sweet and very princess-like if that makes any sense. I love how the pans are the for shadows the mostly used shades are larger than the not so much used shades like the burgandy you don’t use much of it at the time so it’s smaller than the rest. It’s a great idea so that you don’t waste pan space and get more out of the shade you love. As for the shadows all the shades are very buttery smooth, easy to apply and blend. Pigmentation is medium to high pigments (especially on the burgandy shade) it works great as an everyday eye palette but can transform your look at night. I don’t have anything bad to say but the glitter shade just feels awkward but Japanese people love to use those sort of shades in the inner corner of the eyes to make them look brighter and jeweling at the same time. It’s a strange concept but it just wakes up their eyes and makes it all shiny. Those types of shades are found in pretty much a lot of Japanese palettes with different undertones as well to fit with the palette color scheme. Overall, a very nice palette that I will get lots of usage out of.

Cost: $14-20 @ online stores

Would I recommend this product? I would the shadows are really good and I would love to pick up some more!

Review: Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Bronzer

2 Feb

Hello everyone!

I’ve lately been liking this line from Physician’s Formula lately and I’ll be posting up the blush review later since I got the blush and bronzer in a two-pack.

Description: Infused with Happy Boost blend made with plant extracts to mimic endorphins to make you happier. The scent of violets will uplift your day and keep you in a field of happiness.

Review: I bet the packaging department was having a field day when they got the ideas for this product. It has bright pink exterior with heart designs pressed into the bronzer itself. The bronzer has a great heart design and the scent of violets is a nice touch and not too strong but I don’t think it makes me any happy using it… it’s still a nice bronzer though. I found that some of the shades were very dense but some of the other shades were not as dense. For example the pink heart is not dense and I could see an major indent the more I used the bronzer but the rest of the bronzer I found difficulty getting product out of the pan. I don’t know if the brown shades were packed in more dense but it didn’t blend as smoothly or gather a nice mix of the product. Don’t get me wrong the product is pigmented but just the way to apply this bronzer is very difficult. The shade is very muddy nice as a contour but I don’t think that this bronzer is going to work with all different types of skintones. Overall, I think the shade is a nice bronzing shade but due to the texture and the awkward mix of shades I wouldn’t recommend this.

Cost: $15-20CDN @ local drugstores

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this for those who love nice designs and cute packaging but I won’t repurchase this or recommend it based on the product itself.

Review: Too Faced Beauty Balm in Watermelon

13 Jul

Hello everyone! A Too Faced product review today… one of two (ahah I only have two Too Faced products). Hopefully this review is helpful.

Review: This is a tinted lip balm essentially in a pot format. Too Faced is known for their cute and vintage packaging and this does not disappoint it’s so cute! I dislike dipping my fingers into products but I make an exception for this as the color gives the lips a nice flush of color (rosey pink on the lips with shimmer). It is extremely moisturizing and wear for quite some time (approximately 3-4 hours without eating and drinking). The batch that I got somehow does not smell nor taste like Watermelon that I was expecting instead it has a scent of burnt plastic mixed with a bit of watermelon. Another unfortunate thing is that these are not available instore nor does it exist on Too Faced’s site thus you can either purchase it off allcosmeticswholesale.com or any other online store. Which means shipping costs is going to jack the price up from the usual $11 or not.

Cost: $5.99USD @ allcosmeticswholesale.com, Original price $11USD

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those who are willing to purchase this item online but for those who aren’t willing to pay for ridiculous shipping prices or are germ-o-phobes then it’s not a product that you need to get.

Tootsie Tippers

I have never done a post of shoes before so I recently got new shoes and a question popped up.

Would you wear uncomfortable shoes if they were cute?

I am a very picky shopper when it comes to clothes and shoes… sorry if it is a bad thing. >.< But I picked up two pairs of shoes from Walmart (hooray for cheap but cute shoes) and they are both very cute.

 Left 2 shoes = old shoes, Right 2 shoes are the new ones. (there are newspapers in the farthest right to stretch them)

Bad thing is despite the shoes being my size (feet length wise) it is not wide enough. Here are my feet:

Don’t they remind you of duck feet? It may look slim… but it’s not photography can be quite deceiving. Hopefully I will do another post of feet types and shapes… but putting that aside because my feet resembles a duck’s feet I always have difficulty finding shoes that are comfortable. My parents won’t let me venture in the realm of heels so heels are always out of question when it comes to shoe shopping (but I will get myself a pair of heels soon hopefully >.< fingers crossed!).

With any kind of shoes I am always trying to squash my feet into a pair of nice shoes and it hurts like heck!! So from trial and error I have come up with ways of coping with the pain.

1. Decide if the pain is worth it for the pair of shoes – I always choose shoes that I can break in easily… patent leather isn’t my thing for that reason or it can be worn right away like flats (I don’t own any flats by the way…)

2. Break in the shoes – This for me takes about 10 days of wear… of course not consecutively as I wouldn’t want blisters popping and more blisters forming for the 10 days I switch on and off.

3. For the rubbing shoe burning feeling – I put on crushed aspirin on the blister or rubbed spot and it would calm down.

4. For stretching the shoe – To make that break in faster for the shoes I put on the thickest pair of socks that I own and mash my foot into the shoe (uncomfortable I know) and it will stretch the shoe out more quickly and reduce the amount of days trying to break in the shoe.

Well, those are my tips… I will most likely post up more things about feet since they play such an important role in our daily lives and function.
