Review: The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer

18 Jul

Hello everyone! Summer make up means to me bronze goddess! So bronzer is a must for that sun-kissed glow.

Review: Bahama Mama is a matte bronzer with a brown shade as the base color. So it’s not like most bronzers out in the drugstore which can run a bit orange. It doesn’t have any sparkle/glitter/shimmers and has no scent. I got this in a gift with purchase at Rexall drugstores so mine isn’t the full sized version. This works great as a contour shade and a cheek color as well. It adds a nice shadows and can make you look like you got a real tan (if you use it all over). It is pretty pigmented and applies smoothly over the face. I love that it’s matte and doesn’t appear too orangey on my skintone. What I dislike is the packaging I find that as I am applying the bronzer the top can flip back down thus closing the product. And I don’t think the mirror included was of any use. Overall, a pretty good bronzer I won’t be repurchasing this anytime soon as I’m not a big bronzer fan but if I do feel like getting any bronzer it would be this one.

Cost: $19USD/ $23CDN @ Sephora.com, Rexall Drugstores

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would it works great as a contour shade and a bronzer.

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 Clarifying Pressed Powder in Light Beige

17 Jun

Hello everyone! Almost through my ELF products jut one more left (blushes) and this little segment is done. On with the review!

Review: A surprise product for me I was really surprised how well it worked and it also didn’t break me out. As you can tell from the photo the powder is quite pigmented and luckily it’s just my shade. The texture is really smooth and just seems to glide onto my face. It does a decent job at controlling oil, I still have to blot but not as much as I used to. There is no scent at all which is great. What I dislike about this product is the packaging I feel that it’s pretty flimsy and can break easily if I took it on a trip but what was I expecting for a dollar? Overall a pretty good powder and a definate repurchase for me.

Cost: $1USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would and I will be repurchasing for sure.

Review: Hard Candy Glossaholic in Gorgeous

30 May

Hello everyone! A review today I picked this up a while ago and have been using it for some time then realized I didn’t review it yet so here it is.

Review: Let me start off by saying that this gloss is bigger than the ones on the market. It contains 0.38 fl oz. while regular is around 0.17 fl oz. That’s double the size and it’s at a really great price too! If you can see in the swatch there are chunky glitters in the gloss itself that depending on the light can be a green or red flecks. It is a pretty standard pink color with the glitters that add some extra oomph to the gloss. Wear time is the same for any gloss around 2-3 hours with/without eating and drinking. I like that it’s not extremely sticky but still stays on the lips for quite some time. There is a vanilla cake batter scent but that goes away after some time. This gloss looks great on it’s own or on top of a lipstick. For the cons since this gloss is bigger than other glosses on the market the applicator can sometimes get stuck in the small hole but can be easily fixed by applying force. Overall a great gloss for a good price.

Cost: $4.79CDN @ Walmart

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product  for those who love glitter in their glosses or for those looking for a basic color with some pop but I won’t be purchasing anymore as chunks of glitter isn’t my cup of tea.
