Review: Missha Shiny BB Cream

20 Mar

Hello everyone! Another BB cream review for the archives which is exciting stuff.

Description: A moisturizing and antioxidant rich BB cream it provides a natural glow with a soft pearl finish. Only one shade currently known.

Review: The one that I purchased was a sample size as one of my family members had tried this before and left it because it left a glittery finish on the face. So this is the smaller size (2o mL) but there is still quite a bit of product. As you can tell from the swatch it is very pigmented that just blends into the skin well but in the last photo (I tried my best to photograph it) there are visible glitters on my hand. Due to the glitter I found that this really isn’t as wearable as I would like it to be. I mean who would want to look like a vampire? The texture was very smooth and it wore well on the skin (lasted an entire 8 hours) without oxidizing. Overall, I think that it is a nice BB cream if only it didn’t have any visible glitter chunks.

Cost $6-7CDN @ ebay.ca

Would I recommend this product? Unless you want that glittery look to your face I would recommend you to stay away from this!

Review: Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in 110 Keep a Secret

5 Aug

Hello everyone! A gloss review today and I picked up this shade because I was looking for a basic everyday lipgloss.

Product Description: A gloss that give you the ultimate shine and makes your lips look poutier. 110 Keep a secret is a light pink shade with silver microshimmers.

Review: This gloss gives you a really nive shine on your lips and they have the same scents as the Lasting finish lipsticks which is vanilla cupcake. The lasting power of this isn’t that great it only lasts on your lips for about an hour max and that’s without eating and drinking but I don’t mind reapplying throughout the day due to the low cost. The gloss glides on smoothly and the doe foot applicator fits just nicely with my lips. I think this is a great basic gloss that everyone should have in their bag. Definately would love to pick up more shades in this gloss range.

Cost: $5-9CDN in drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would really recommend this product and would purchase other shades. It works great as an everyday gloss.

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!

Review: ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick

13 Jun

Hello everyone! A review from ELF (eyelipsface.com) and yeah… it was different than what I was expecting.

(L-R: Raspberry, Strawberry, Perfect Pink)

Review: The shades I got are Raspberry (darker mauvy purple based pink), Strawberry (a bright red shade), and Perfect Pink (a bright blue-based pink). This is very similar to a pigmented lipgloss which is alright but from the product title I would have expected it to be a lipstick. It works great as a gloss and is quite pigmented and the color is quite buildable. There is a slight mint scent to this but no plumping sort of feeling is felt on the lips. The color lasts for about 2-3 hours and the color can also work as a stain once the gloss has worn away. The packaging isn’t that great but still works you just have to twist it more than 10 times to get product out at the beginning. A con is the applicator I feel that the sponge actually absorbs the product than places it on your lips and well it’s only available online for Canadians. For Americans you can easily purchase it at a Target store… Canadians = online and online buying can be a hassle especially the wait times. I had to wait about 2 weeks before my package came in and that’s about avergae for any Canadian post parcel mail.

Cost: $1.00USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those interested in trying a product at an extremely low price point.
