Empties: February 2014

5 Mar

Hello everyone! So I haven’t been updating my blog lately… and that’s because school has been really hectic. I had a lot of assignments and papers and I just finished my midterms yay! But I hope to get back in the swing of things and whatnot but of course I must do the obligatory empties and I have a few more things this month too. As you know I haven’t been purchasing beauty products for the past two months so my stash has been decreasing which is awesome (look I finished another blush!) so without further ado here are the empties for the month of February.

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: Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes in RD784

20 Feb

Hello everyone! A Japanese drugstore eyeshadow quad review today from the ever so popular Majolica Majorca line from Shiseido.

Description: A sparkling eyeshadow set that will make your eyes shine like jewels. The shades are a light yellow based glitter shadow, a pink champagne (satin), a darker pink (satin), and a deep burgandy with pink undertones (satin).

Review: Man, this palette is pretty to look at and I pretty much used it everyday when I got it. The packaging is very sweet and very princess-like if that makes any sense. I love how the pans are the for shadows the mostly used shades are larger than the not so much used shades like the burgandy you don’t use much of it at the time so it’s smaller than the rest. It’s a great idea so that you don’t waste pan space and get more out of the shade you love. As for the shadows all the shades are very buttery smooth, easy to apply and blend. Pigmentation is medium to high pigments (especially on the burgandy shade) it works great as an everyday eye palette but can transform your look at night. I don’t have anything bad to say but the glitter shade just feels awkward but Japanese people love to use those sort of shades in the inner corner of the eyes to make them look brighter and jeweling at the same time. It’s a strange concept but it just wakes up their eyes and makes it all shiny. Those types of shades are found in pretty much a lot of Japanese palettes with different undertones as well to fit with the palette color scheme. Overall, a very nice palette that I will get lots of usage out of.

Cost: $14-20 @ online stores

Would I recommend this product? I would the shadows are really good and I would love to pick up some more!

Review: Shiseido Sun Compact Powder Foundation SPF35

18 Mar

Hello everyone! It’s almost summertime to time to bring out the sun protection and summery makeup!

Review: Shiseido has come up with something really great for those who hate putting on sunscreen in the mornings (those people being me). This is basically a powder foundation with SPF 35 and it does have decent coverage and is soft and easy to apply. The shade that I got was SP30 and the downfall with this product is the limited shades (currently 4 shades available)and there are no testers available. Another depressing thing about this is that you have to buy the case seperately and in flash photography your face is ghostly white (fantastic!). This also does not keep the oilies at bay throughout the day so I still have to blot and such but it does adapt to my skin oilies and sometimes does produce a nice dewy look to my face.

Price: $35CDN for the powder, and a seperate $9CDN for the case

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those days that you forget to put on sunscreen and are not planning to partake in any flash photography.

Skincare Overload?!

12 Aug

How many skincare products do I have to try before I am happy? The answer is A LOT… this is what I have picked up skincare wise in the past month alone.

So I am in the process of testing them all out one at a time… how I test is that I finish all the products that I buy myself even if it breaks out my skin or if it makes me skin drying or whatever I will use that thing until it is done. All this testing is going to take a really really long time… I don’t know if I should even do reviews on them… but yeah, just wanted to share how obsessed I am with skincare products.

Brighten up

28 Jul

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve updated my skincare routine but it still is the same as usual but recently I got a sample of Shiseido’s White Lucent line.

So this included the brightening eye treatment, brightening emulsion (moisterizer), and the cleansing foam.

I won’t be starting on this skincare anytime soon as I still have to finish up my previous items such as the Shiseido Lifting Eye Cream from the Beneficiance line and the mattifying moisterizer from the Pureness line.

Possible start date would be after my trip to Vancouver and I’m thinking these samples will last about a week or two so perhaps on Aug 8 and depending on when it ends I’ll review the line and put up more information on this line.

Please note that this line is meant to brighten up your skin’s complexion and not ”Whiten” it.
