Review: Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation

20 Jan

Hello everyone! A stick foundation that I’ve been using lately and thought I should review it before it ends up in an empties post.

Description: A stick foundation with a oil control core to prevent oiliness from breaking through.

Review: I love the idea of just taking 1 minute to do my foundation and this product allows me to do that. I just swipe on the product and blend with a brush and I’m done. It had an interesting texture of a gel/cream and blended like a powder. The finish is a very dewy/glowy look which is great all year around I didn’t mind it as much as I thought I would. Staying power was unfortunately only 4 hours and then it faded away the coverage is light-medium it covered some of my acne scars but not the new or deeply pigmented ones. The foundation glides on smoothly over the skin and I don’t notice any sort of oil control from the core. There is no scent and the packaging makes it easy to bring it along for touch ups throughout the day. What sucks about this foundation is that there is only 9g of product in it a regular foundation give at least 30g of product so if you are planning on purchasing this note the difference in the amount of foundation you receive. Overall, a quick and easy foundation for those who don’t have a lot of time and not so finnick-y skin.

Cost: $8-10 @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? This is a very convenient/easy product to use but for those with extremely oily skin it might not be the best.

Review: Wet ‘n Wild 8-Pan Palette in Comfort Zone

16 Jan

Hello everyone! A palette review today and this palette has gotten a lot more usage since these photos were taken as this has been one of my favorites to pull out for the lovely green shades for the holidays. Who are we kidding this palette works all year round!

Description: An 8-pan palette consisting of a cream yellow shimmer, pink shimmer, bronze brown shimmer, dark chocolate brown with gold glitter, greenish taupe shimmer, mid-tone grass green with shimmer, dark green with gold glitter and a duo chrome brown with green shimmers. My swatches doesn’t do this palette any justice.

Review: This is a great everyday palette especially with the colors on the left side of the palette. The shadows themselves are pigmented, blendable and easy to work with. With a primer they last 6-8 hours but without a mere 4 hours for all shades. They have a tendency to product fall out if you tap your brush in too much the powders are very loose in the pans. My favorite shade in this palette is the top left the taupe green shade because it’s such a unique shade that I don’t have in my collection at all. Overall, a great basic palette that everyone must have.

Cost: $3.99CDN @ local Supermarkets and Grocery Stores

Would I recommend this product? Yes! I mean what is not to love about this product?

Review: Wet ‘n Wild Blue Had Me at Hello 9-Pan Palette

13 Jan

Hello everyone! A fun palette review today which I am extremely excited to share with you all. Wet ‘n Wild is such an affordable brand no matter where you are and I love any blue eyeshadows so let’s get started on the review.

IMG_1613 IMG_1615IMG_2193

Description: An eight pan eyeshadow palette with awesome blues. Left column consists of a shimmering white, metallic silver, blackend navy with blue shimmers, matte black. Right column has a light blue shimmer, shimmer turquoise, royal navy blue, black with silver glitter

Review: Can you tell which color is my favorite? Obviously that gorgeous turquoise shade I think it’s the standout shade in this palette. The colors are pigmented especially with the shimmery shades but I usually have a hard time working with both the black shades in the palette. As you can tell in the swatches both blacks are not pure black and look a little patchy on my hand. This is good because it’s very easy to look like a raccoon if you have a black that is very pigmented. Wear time is average with an eyeshadow primer (7-8 hours without creasing) these are very easy to work with and blend. I just love this palette all year round. ^o^

Cost: $2-4CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Absolutely yes! Even for those who do not wear a lot of blue eyeshadow it still is an affordable palette for those days you want to wear blue eyeshadow.

Review: Shiseido White Lucent Cleansing Foam

2 Aug

Hello everyone! Wow! It’s been a really long time since I posted a skincare item review… well no time dwelling on the past let’s get to it!

IMG_0685 IMG_0689 IMG_0695

Review: This is a basic cleanser on the face and it does leave the skin really nice and refreshingly clean after usage. I don’t really notice a brightening effect on the skin but I like to think that over time my skintone has been lightening up. This works into a really nice lather and spreads easily over the face. There isn’t much else to say that this is one of my favourite cleansers to use if only the price tag was a little lower…

Cost: $49CDN @ The Bay, Sephora, and select Shoppers Drug Mart

Would I recommend this product? Yes, it works nicely as a basic cleanser and has been working on my acne scars to make them look a little lighter in the morning.

Review: Maybelline Color Whispers in 25 Lust for Blush

28 Jun

Hello everyone! I will be reviewing a popular lip shade from Maybelline’s Color Whispers line. I really love this line of lipsticks they are fantastic.

IMG_1720 IMG_1721 IMG_1722 IMG_1725

Description: A light pink “my lips but better” shade cream finish.

Review: This is a pretty basic lipstick shade a creamy “my lips but better” shade that would work well on many skintones. Formulation wise it is a nice lipstick with a smooth glide across the lips and has adds a slight tint to your lips to enhance them. Wear time isn’t great with these lipsticks I get about 1-2 hours if I’m not eating or drinking anything but I think that’s the appeal of the lipstick. That it is easy to reapply and touch up throughout the day without needing a mirror. Overall, a lovely lipstick shade from this line and would love to get more lipsticks from this line.

Cost: $6-8CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Yes, this is a universal shade that I think a lot of people will like to use on an everyday basis.

Review: Wet ‘n Wild Trio in I Got Good Jeans

5 Jun

Hello everyone! This is the second last trio review from Wet ‘n Wild so it is almost to it’s end.

IMG_1621 IMG_1622 IMG_1676

Description: A trio filled with royal shades Browbone a shimmering silver light blue, Crease a shimmering dark navy blue, and Eyelid a darker copper gold.

Review: Out of all the palettes I use this is one of my favourite go tos because of the gold and blue they just work so well together and I always like reaching for blues for some odd reason. But this palette is a little different from the others as the navy blue is actually not that pigmented and is hard to work with compared with the other shades. These shades work very well with each other and is a great palette. Staying power is the same as the others a full 8 hours and 4 hours without primer. Once again they are easy to blend but also easy to blend the color off your eyelid. Overall, another great trio from Wet ‘n Wild that I love.

Cost: $3.99CDN @ Superstore and Walmart

Would I recommend this product? Yes, as it is a very good trio and the gold eyeshadow is to die for.

Review: Etude House Missing U Lip Balm

22 Apr

Hello everyone! A review on the Missing U line from Etude House. Lip balms!

Review: OMG! The packaging is soooo cute!! That’s probably why I have all four of the lip balms… anyways, each tin represents an animal on the verge of extinction and by purchasing from the line you contribute to saving some of these animals. Each of them appear glossy on the lips and have a nice flavour to time. These are great to give out to others as gifts as I did with mine these were definately meant to be shared.

Cost: $4-5USD approx. @ ebay.com

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend these products for sure they are moisturizing and the tints are quite natural and nice for an everyday sort of look.
