Review: NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette in 04 Catwalk

30 Mar

Hello everyone! I purchased these palettes about the same time last year and am finally getting around to reviewing them… I’m getting lazy with my swatches. But anyways this is one of the five that I have purchased. Look forward to the other palettes as well!

Description: A 10 pan eyeshadow for all your color needs! Colors from top left to right: A light pink Barbie pink with golden glitters, a glittering gold chocolate brown, an in your face orange with gold glitters, a matte tan-brown, and a gold glitter tree bark shade. In the second row from left to right: A light champagne with brown shimmers, a orange with champagne shimmers, a light tan with shimmers, a rusty chocolate brown, and copper brown. All swatches were done with one swipe.

Review: I have to say that this is the first time that I described so many colors at once no wonder I put off reviewing these palettes until now. The palette is a great everyday shade perfect for the spring due to the orange which is an on-trend color this season. I really like the amount of shades that are available in the palette which you can mix and match to suit your needs. The colors are very warm-toned though so I feel that cool-toned people will have  difficult time pulling off the shades (but it is doable just time-consuming). For the powders they are very smooth and blend very easily on the lids it’s a very nice eyeshadow formulation that’s soft but not too soft where you get so much fallout. Staying power only lasted 2-3 hours without primer and 4-5 hours with primer so it’s not the greatest staying eyeshadow. Same goes for the pigmentation it is pigmented but sometimes it doesn’t show up like that on my eyelids so using a white base (like NYX Eyeshadow base in White) would help with the pigmentation of the shadows. The packaging is very simple and minimalistic which I appreciate I have taken these travelling and dropped them a couple of times and each time they were okay (I only dropped them over carpet so I can’t report on how they fair when they hit a hard floor). Overall, I think this is a great neutral palette perfect for those starting out with makeup.

Cost: $8-10CDN @ ebay.ca

Would I recommend this product? These eyeshadows are great for everyone it’s basic but those who are not warm-toned these eyeshadows are not for you due to the orange-like undertones to the eyeshadows.

Review: Etude House Dream-on Loose Powder

2 Mar

Hello everyone! An Etude House post today I’ve been neglecting my loose powder from Project 10 Pan and have been using this one. No reason why I just am…

 

Description: The loose powder of your dreams. A translucent shade powder made to set makeup.

Review: I really like this powder and the pretty packaging helps earn lots of point in my book too. I mean look at all in intricate designs on the top of the lid. Etude House packaging always seems to work its way into my heart. Anyways, the powder is translucent (of course); it is finely milled so the powder just glides across your face. Now as for the wear time I find that this at times helps keep my face oil-free for about 2 extra hours on top of the foundation wear time. Though if I wear a primer underneath my foundation and powder it will last longer. There is a light floral scent with this and goes away after applying the powder. Overall, I really like this powder and works great if only I didn’t have to wait for it everytime…

Cost: $14-16CDN @ online sites (eBay) *Note: The price includes shipping fees.

Would I recommend this product? I would, this is a great setting powder but if only you didn’t have to wait for air mail time and the large size of the powder.

Review: Skinfood Gunnpang Eyeshadow Duo

10 Jan

Hello everyone! Skinfood is a Korean cosmetics company that specializes in good for you skincare that utilizes regular every foods such as tomatoes, grapes, olives etc. I wanted to try their makeup thinking that if their skincare is good than the makeup is good as well.

Description: The shade is in #2 Indigo Navy, the silver side is a blue tone silver, and the navy has slight silver shimmers which make the colors compatible with each other. The swatches were done very heavy to show the depth of the colors

Review: First off, I have to say that I love how small this eyeshadow duo is. It is small thus makes it easy to carry around but easy to lose (in the vast universe called a makeup bag). For those starting off in makeup I think this duo is a great starter as it has the eye brightening shade and a darker shade that can be used as a liner or a dark eyeshadow. Both the shades are neither pigmented nor smooth but they do blend well. I feel like the quality is on par with some Covergirl eyeshadow trios. Overall, those just starting in makeup will enjoy this but those like me who wear a lot of makeup already it’s an easy skip.

Cost: $10-12 USD online (ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I will just say since the shades aren’t heavily pigmented nor smooth this is a skip.

Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX

23 Dec

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since a skincare review. This is a product that I’ve been using for some time now and I would like to share with you my thoughts.

Description: A sleep-in face mask that will restore moisture into your skin to make it soft and plump with the light gel-like texture.

Review: I’ve been using this product for a while now (approximately 6 months) and I have to say the initial reaction is great but as time goes by I feel as though the mask wasn’t as effective enough. The mask comes with a spatula to make sure that your germy hands don’t contaminate the product. It is a gel like cosistency and works into the skin very well. Absorbs quite quickly and the scent is a light clean scent I have no idea how to describe it. As far as masks go it is a really nice mask but with all masks it is not a necessity so for just one or two effective times I have used the mask it doesn’t break the cost of purchasing it. So I won’t be repurchasing it but those who are curious feel free to try it, it really is a nice mask just not for me.

Cost: $30 approximately online @ eBay

Would I recommend this product? For those who are curious, have money and time feel free to try it, it really is a nice mask just not for me.

Review: Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack

23 Dec

Hello everyone! Another Laneige face mask this time the Multiberry one.

Description: A repair mask that you wash off your face for a plump moisturized skin. With a scent of berry yogurt this is the perfect treat for your skin.

Review: I really like this face mask mainly due to the scent. It has a yogurt berry scent that makes it quite delicious smelling. It came with a spatula to scoop out so you don’t contaminate anything with your germy hands. The mask is creamy and when you put it on your skin it doesn’t feel like you have anything on it. Though when you take the mask off my skin looked… shiny as in clean shiny. As for the effects of the mask I have to say that I felt nothing… yes nothing in my skin changed. It felt great on the skin like it wasn’t there but I didn’t feel like it was doing much for my skin. Perhaps my skin felt plumper but that’s how it always feels after I use my Clarasonic Mia. This mask is pretty disappointing and due to the high cost of it I wouldn’t purchase it again.

Cost: $30 approximately online @ eBay.ca

Would I recommend this product? I would for those who are curious to try it but it really isn’t a product that you NEED to have. It’s just a nice treat for the skin from time to time.
