Review: Lavshuca Palette in OR-1

1 Feb

Hello everyone! A Japanese drugstore review today. Orange was a popular shade last spring and it’s expected to be a hot trend color once again.

Description: Four tantalizing shades of a modern mandarin. The first shade is orange tone champagne, a bright mandarin, a midtone brown, and a darker brown with orange shimmers. All the shades are shimmery shades with an orange tint.

Review: I find that orange shades are very flattering on practically any skintone the warmth that it provides for the skintone . It’s just a really nice shade to work with and since it is a trend color it just adds a nice pop of color. Pigmentation is good but I find that it is a bit chalky and there is a lot of fall out when I apply it. The powder itself is quite soft and blendable and the packaging is just too adorable.

Cost: $13-18USD @ online stores (ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this to those looking for an orange shade but of course the downside is that it is only available in Japan so airmail time and shipping could deter you from purchasing.

Review: MAC Naturally

16 Jan

Hello everyone! So this is the first time that I have reviewed a MAC limited edition collection (and it is also the first time that I really splurged on a makeup collection). Items reviewed will be 2 Mineralized Eyeshadows, a Mineralized Skin Finish, and a Mineralized Blush. So since there are a few different items this review will be set up differently.

First off the Mineralized Eyeshadows. There is a total of five shades but I picked out just two shades (poor student here) they are $24CDN each.
Daylight is described as a cool-toned lavender shade and In the Sun is a glittery light brown-burgandy shade. Both shades wear for around 6 hours without fading and begins to fade (this is testing with a primer underneath). I found that In the Sun was a little harder to work with and not as smooth as Daylight (perhaps it was the glitter). Both are smooth pigmented and they are in general great shades to play with for a natural look. I haven’t tried using the shadows with water but will definately try in the future.

Next is the Mineralized Blush I have a lot of blushes so I picked out a standout color in this collection. There are three blushes in total but the one I picked up is Fresh Honey the blushes are $27.50CDN.
Fresh Honey is an apricot very orange shade. It is pigmented but can be a bit chalky the wear time is 8 hours and even though it looks scary it is quity wearable.

I saved the best for last the ever coverted Redhead Mineralized Skin Finish. I didn’t pick up Blonde due to the pink undertones so Redhead it was. The cost of these are pretty high $33.50CDN for one I seriously winced when I found out it now takes the place of the most expensive highlighter that I own.
Redhead is described as a warm champagne transitioning into dark pink. The wear time is great around 8 hours, the highlighting effects that it gives is a warm sheen to the skin and looks very natural. The powder is smooth, creamy and very blendable.
