Review: Limited Edition Maybelline Colorsensational Lollipop Lipsticks

11 Aug

Hello everyone! A limited edition review I haven’t done one of these in a long time as I really don’t like the idea of limited edition.

Product Description: An lollipop color and shades perfect for the summer. I picked up 110 Raspberry Ice and 120 Citrus Slice. Both are basic glossy lipstick with a slight hint of color.

Review: Well as you can tell from the swatches they don’t show up on my hand but there is a bit of a tint when applied to the lips. Strange that it doesn’t work for my hand though. Anyways, the lipstick has a balm like feeling when applying and sometimes it tugs on my lips. It doesn’t dry out my lips but doesn’t make them feel moisturized either. I wasn’t expecting much from the product and it turned out there really is nothing really special about this except for the super bright packaging and the see-throughness of the lipstick. Each of the shades had their own scent which was nice touch. Overall, I would say a nice lipstick for those just looking for a tint or for those who just like quirky lipsticks.

Cost: $8-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets for a limited time

Would I recommend this product? I would purchase all the shades as they are a really cool concept with the see-through lipstick but you can get better formulation and pigmentation for the amount of money you are paying. So I would say unless you like these sorts of lipsticks it just isn’t worth purchasing.

Review: Dior Addikt Lipstick in 422 Tokyo

29 Jul

Hello everyone! Another high-end post today I think I’m on a high end makeup kick… anyways, onto the review.

Product Description: This lipstick is described as a hydrating lip color and has a hydrating and voluminzing property while giving color and high gloss shine. 422 Tokyo is described as a sheer peachy pink.

Review: First off, packaging. The packaging is pretty dense and has a heavy weight to it (the weight of luxury?) and the end opens up with a doorknob type feature at the bottom of the tube. The outside sports a nice shiny effect with multi color reflections and has Dior raised on the edge on one side. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning for lipstick packaging. The formula is a pretty good formula it does provide a nice sheen to your lips and is a pretty shade. I think the peachy pink shades work well for most skintones and it does have some micro shimmers in it. There is no scent to them and for complaints I surprisingly don’t have any (and it’s not like I don’t have any because of the brand/luxury of it). A great lipstick for those willing to spend money on it (my wallet practically died).

Cost: $28USD /$31CDN @ Sephora or Dior counters

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would totally recommend this product for those who are interested in the formula and are willing to spend a good amount of money on their lipstick. I will totally repurchase this lipsitck line whenever I find some money or win the lottery.

Test Phase

17 Apr

So I just finished one of my exams today which was Nutrition…. yes, we do take exams on Saturdays at University.

But putting that aside I’m going to do another long month before its due review this time’s long-term review product is:

Yup, Bio-oil… it claims to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. Just what I needed! So how you would use this is after your skincare routine you would massage it into the places that need the help and it can be used anywhere on the body. I’m going to try to work it on my acne scars and some stretch marks that I have on my thighs due to puberty… it says to give it at least 3 months… so 3 months later the review for those product will come out…

The amount of time that I use this product kinda reminds me of the Shiseido skincare set that I bought which lasted me 2 months and the review for it will be up soon. It seems I like to do long trials…. anyways, just a quick update. I’m going to go back to studying or watching Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End…. maybe both of them at the same time… sounds like a good idea.

Review: Ecotools Makeup Brushes

25 Feb

A review on Ecotools Makeup Brushes. So here are the brushes that I have from Ecotools and I have been using them since I got them in July… so it’s been about 8 months. Photo of them.

 I have the 6 piece set and the powder brush. The 6 piece set includes a blush brush, concealer brush, slanted eyeliner/brow brush, all over shadow brush, brow/eyelash comb brush and the brush roll made of hemp. These brushes can be purchased at Superstore, Walmart, and London drugs. I believe that they are cheaper at London drugs than at Superstore or Walmart but you can look at those places and decide on which ever place you want to buy them from.

Review: When I first bought these brushes I thought that they would be scratchy and stuff but the bristles were really really soft for each and everyone of the brushes. Even the brush roll amazed me at how soft it was despite the fact that it was hemp. Each of the brushes are extremely soft and they feel really nice on the skin.

Now onto each brushes purpose, the powder brush is for your translucent powder but I find that it is quite fluffy compared to other brushes and due to its fluffiness it doesn’t pick up and distribute powder evenly over my face. I still use it as I really like the feeling of it compared to other brushes that I have tried and returned.

The blush brush is pretty dense and really does distribute blush evenly and is soft to boot! Picking up color on this brush is easy as one swipe across your product. A great powder blush brush.

The concealer brush is a wide multicolored brush and since I wear concealer most of the time I usually use this brush so it might seem like its worn out. It is a perfect width across as I can swipe this brush anywhere on my face and still be able to blend in my concealer really well. I really liked this brush as it worked for lots of different areas on my face.

The angled brush which can be used for eyeliner or brows. I use this brush to line my eyes and to me it is the least softest of the brushes. It was quite harsh and really hurt my eyes while I was lining my eyes. But it works nicely as a brow powder brush.

The all over shadow brush picks up a lot of product and is dense but where it lacks is that it doesn’t distribute the product evenly over my lids. Overall a nice and soft brush though.

The brow/eyelash comb brush is average as is any other brow/eyelash comb on the market.

Cost: Powder Brush – $8.49CDN, 6-piece set – $17.99CDN

Would I recommend these products? I would totally recommend these brushes to others who are starting off with makeup or want to be eco-friendly to the environment. They are so soft, great brushes, and are relatively cheaper than most other drugstore brushes (other drugstore brush brands include Annabelle, Joe Fresh, Quo, etc.).
