Review: Etude House Dream-on Loose Powder

2 Mar

Hello everyone! An Etude House post today I’ve been neglecting my loose powder from Project 10 Pan and have been using this one. No reason why I just am…

 

Description: The loose powder of your dreams. A translucent shade powder made to set makeup.

Review: I really like this powder and the pretty packaging helps earn lots of point in my book too. I mean look at all in intricate designs on the top of the lid. Etude House packaging always seems to work its way into my heart. Anyways, the powder is translucent (of course); it is finely milled so the powder just glides across your face. Now as for the wear time I find that this at times helps keep my face oil-free for about 2 extra hours on top of the foundation wear time. Though if I wear a primer underneath my foundation and powder it will last longer. There is a light floral scent with this and goes away after applying the powder. Overall, I really like this powder and works great if only I didn’t have to wait for it everytime…

Cost: $14-16CDN @ online sites (eBay) *Note: The price includes shipping fees.

Would I recommend this product? I would, this is a great setting powder but if only you didn’t have to wait for air mail time and the large size of the powder.

Review: Integrate Eyebrow and Nose Powder

27 Feb

Hello everyone! So a blog post on a really good brow product that I love. I only have two brow products but both will last me for some time but today’s brow product comes from Japan.

Description: An everyday brow product that works well with you. Swatches were done with one swipe.

Review: I reviewed a brow powder before from Clinique (which I hated details here) and this one is much better. The light flesh shade is actually used as a contour on the sides of the nose bridge to imitate/ provide an illusion of a higher nose bridge. The other two shades are used for the brow the golden at the front and the brown at the end (evidently). The powders themselves are very soft and easy to use and I found that the applicator that comes with the compact makes the usage very simple and easy. It is pigmented (as you can tell from the swatch) but blends easily on the brows as in it becomes one with your brows. Packaging is simple but works great and I love how small it is (hooray for not taking up too much space in my makeup storage). Overall, I think this is a great brow powder that will last me for quite some time.

Cost: $15-20USD @ online sites (ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I would it is a really great powder for the brows and the fact that the lightest shade can be used as a nose contour makes this a great multitasker. If you dislike the wait time associated with air mail it’s not worth it for you but this is one of my favourites.

Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX

23 Dec

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since a skincare review. This is a product that I’ve been using for some time now and I would like to share with you my thoughts.

Description: A sleep-in face mask that will restore moisture into your skin to make it soft and plump with the light gel-like texture.

Review: I’ve been using this product for a while now (approximately 6 months) and I have to say the initial reaction is great but as time goes by I feel as though the mask wasn’t as effective enough. The mask comes with a spatula to make sure that your germy hands don’t contaminate the product. It is a gel like cosistency and works into the skin very well. Absorbs quite quickly and the scent is a light clean scent I have no idea how to describe it. As far as masks go it is a really nice mask but with all masks it is not a necessity so for just one or two effective times I have used the mask it doesn’t break the cost of purchasing it. So I won’t be repurchasing it but those who are curious feel free to try it, it really is a nice mask just not for me.

Cost: $30 approximately online @ eBay

Would I recommend this product? For those who are curious, have money and time feel free to try it, it really is a nice mask just not for me.
