I love to shop and I love trying out new beauty, technology, clothing & accessory products and sharing my honest review online with others. I also am a mom of two so I love shopping for my son and daughter online as well. Everytime I make a purchase of a good product I head online to write an awesome review about it! My fave colour is pink-in any shade, I also love fashion and enjoy reading.
I was somewhat stoked to try the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. I have been wearing 8+ hours a day lipstick for years (since they were introduced to the public) and I was so happy that I really tried to love this since it wasn't cheap and it's such a gorgeous color and Stila has other great quality products. It's just and it feathers like crazy even with lip liner and it's DEFINITELY NOT transfer-proof. It doesn't last more than one -two hours on me. It bleeds and it's horrible! I really tried to make it work with lip liner, lip primer, lipstick sealer- No bueno. It’s 1000% safe to say I won't be repurchasing because I wrongly assumed that they were better than my drug store brand because they were “high-end” and “more expensive.” One would think that means better quality, sadly nope. I read many reviews and went to Ulta so confident that I had hit the jackpot with Stila. The colors are beautiful, they are comfortable to wear, and highly pigmented—but THEY DO NOT STAY PUT! They have the crumble effect ladies, the color just came peeling and crumbled off. I guess we can truly stop trying to make FETCH HAPPEN with this, because it’s not going to happen. My intentions are to save someone else the hard earned money they would spend on these. I think I will stick with NYX Liquid Lips brand thank you! stila Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick
Lippie lovers, I’m alive and somewhat rejoicing! The soft matte lip is a color collection of your dreams—now a reality: the Soft Matte Lip CreamVault: Part Two. It features 36 minis mattes including 24 of NYX best-selling colors, a 2017 holiday limited-edition, it includes 12 brand new, never-before-seen shades that make this lippie kit well worth having. If your a fan having a ton of the these lip creams in assorted colors this lip kit (vault) is definitely for you! The mini lippies apply smooth, and add soft color that can be intensified depending on how much product you use. Some of the colors in this vault are very similar. —Like too many nudes, pinks and browns, it seems NYX was kind of repetitive in that area? There are a couple colors I don't love, but I mix these and I can create colors that I do like. These will last me a very long time. I paid way less for them in-store retail, at $29.99. I took a star for them being trial sized. The mini lipsticks are softly scented, apply on smoothly, and have a creamy texture. The finish dries matte. These are not semi permanent or glossy. If your looking for semi permanent or gloss from NYX, they also have vaults for their other lippie products. I wasn’t pleased that the products are not full sized and are more like trial sized lipsticks, it’s very minimal product in each lippie. Overall, I’m happy with them and would recommend this vault to all.
This is the Holy Grail of face powder for myself (and I read that MUA Sir John uses this on Queen BEY—I mean what more do I have to say?). This powder is so finely milled its amazing, and a little bit goes such a long way. When I use this I find my face looks and feels smoother, and it keeps my foundation looking fresh and flawless throughout the day/night. I have oily skin so I really love that this product doesn't make my face look caked, powdered or too matte. It provides a natural finish. The part that impresses me with this product, is that it truly is translucent, and didn't change the color of my foundation or concealer. pros: -controls oily/combo skin (I highly recommended this for people with oily/combination skin) -makes skin velvety smooth/semi matte -provides lasting results -makeup stays on well -doesn't heavily clog pores -doesn't make skin look cakey cons: -slightly pricey -gives a slight white cast (if I use too much)
Good product to use in conjunction with other stretch mark/wrinkle treatments. Its used to reduce the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. I first tried this product after I had my daughter to fade stretch marks on my arms legs and stomach. Over the course of about a year the marks faded, but sadly did not disappear. It’s very pricey if your on a tight budget. I really wasn’t a fan of the smell either. If you want instant results try a different product or treatment because you won’t notice the effects after a day or two. I’m not sure how this products works as far as wrinkles yet. Overall I was satisfied with my StriVectin results.
Helps me keep my blemishes acne under control. Since beginning the treatment I saw results in about a week. My skin appeared clearer and no major pimples occurred during use. It did nothing though for my previous acne scars. Sadly after two and a half weeks use I had to discontinue using and return the product because my skin is very sensitive and I had a small chemical burn on my cheek. This formula I feel is too strong for people, like myself, with sensitive skin.
I received a complimentary Maybelline Facestudio® Master Holographic Prismatic Highlighter. This highlighter has a white (pearl colored) base with tiny flecks of purple, blue, gold and peach glitter. (If your not a fan of glitter this highlighter isn’t for you!) This is definitely not a contouring highlighter either. I’d say it’s not a highlighter you’d want to use for a daytime makeup look, it’s best to save this highlighter for a dramatic night/evening look. It’s applies smoothly (I used my fingertips for a more effective color payoff), has good pigmentation (considering I’m of a medium deep complexion), it blends fantastically, and feels very lightweight. My hang up with this highlighter is that although it’s very shimmery and glittery it isn’t technically holographic. I had no problems with removing it using a makeup remover and cloth.
I received this #complimentary from a #MaybellineVoxBox. It's absolutely fantastic! I'm very choosy when it comes to my makeup, and this honestly rivals my more expensive go to highlighters. Maybelline Facestudio® Master Chrome™ Metallic Highlighter. The #MoltenRoseGold— Blends Smoothly, Easy To Apply, Great Pigmentation, and Long Lasting. I swatched it and couldn't believe how amazing and beautiful the color was. The formula is so creamy, and not glittery at all. I will put this on for work and it will literally last all day. I believe the hype around this highlighter and would recommend trying it!
A hit or miss? It’s definitely a miss with me. For the price it isn’t terrible. The colors are pigmented very well. The issue I have with these is how long they take to dry and how much residue it leaves on everything even hours after putting it on. The formula isn’t drying or sticky. It is a bit shiny but the more it dries the more matte it is. This matte lipstick sadly just doesn’t cut it for me.
