YSL Mascara? Yes Please!!

Hello all!!
I am back with another cool blog post + this one is a unboxing/mini review thanks to Influenster and YSL!!! WOOT WOOT!!!!!

image

So again, it’s taken me much longer than I wished to find time to blog + I’m sorry about that but life happens + that comes first! Priorities!! Lol. Anyhoo…I had the pleasure of receiving the reformulated YSL Faux Cils Mascara (Which can be found here!!) + I must say, it is bomb!!

If you follow me on Instagram or see my feed here on my blog, you may have seen my “before + after” shot wearing the mascara. It’s amazeballs!!!! Check it out below!!

The Mascara is $32 but I feel it’s completely worth it. Why? Well, it has luxurious packaging, it smells beautiful, the formula is smooth and doesn’t clump after 2-3 coats and makes your lashes look full and luscious… like wearing faux lashes!!

All in all, I give this mascara 5 stars. I’m totally in love with it right now + I receive so many compliments on my lashes when I wear this. Definitely a keeper. It’s a yes from me!

Until Next Time…
LOVE, PEACE, AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS!
❤ Kai

Note: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”

Sponsored Review – MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil

Hello beauties!!

I have had a heck of a week which I will update you guys on once I’ve had a moment to rest + get myself sorted. Until then, I have a new review for you!!! Yay!!

CYMERA_20141114_225932

I was lucky enough to try out the MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil (Click here to read more about the product) + I must say, I am impressed! This product has improved my hair so so much. The product is said to help minimize thinning hair, add in needed nutrients + can promote hair growth. The oil smells nice + light but luxurious! The cap to this is a dropper which is really nice because you can control the amount of product you use…a little goes a long way (I show this in a vid on my instagram).  The packaging looks amazingly sleek + chic + just really draws your eye to it! Definitely a beautiful high end goodie you must try out!!!!

HOW I USE IT:

CYMERA_20141114_230111

After I wash my hair, I pat dry really well with a town then apply some leave in conditioner, After .I brush/comb my conditioner through, I add in the oil to my ends and then I massage it into my scalp. After those steps, I just let my hair air dry + once it does…OMG, my hair is so so soft + shiny. BEAUTIFUL!!

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS:

5-stars Rilakkuma

I totally give this product a 5 out of 5 because not only did I see instant result after my first use (and still to this day), but I have seen growth as well + that’s major for me since I’ve been trying to grow my hair out + for a bit it grew then just stalled but this definitely gave it that extra boost to start growing again. Oh + I forgot, you can use this on your body as well!! The only con I think of at the moment is the price. On the website this product retails for $99!! That’s a lot of money but if you want to splurge….DO IT!! Hahahaha. All in all, I am happy with this product + once I’m out I will probably purchase this again + try more of the MONAT products as well.

I hope this was informative for you + I will be back soon with more post so stay tuned!!

Until Next Time…

Replenix Eye Repair Cream Review

(*Disclaimer: Brand Description and ingredients were copied from the Beautyfix website. Additional information and full size price were copied from the Dermstore website*)
Hello everyone and Happy 2012!! I am back +  I can not wait to share some great beauty finds with you! Today I am reviewing an awesome eye cream that I was sponsored via Beautyfix.com. They were kind enough to let me try their services and I must say I love it!! Here is the link to my video un-boxing my items! It’s actually just a few post down. Now. moving on to the review…..
 
My Before + After Photo
 
 
As you can see from the photo, the before + after shots are drastically different! This change was after using  the Replenix eye cream for about a week. I was shocked at the results because my under eye area has always been puffy + fine line have always been there. It is all hereditary! I felt the eye cream wouldn’t make much of a difference because nothing else had + yeah, I was totally wrong!
 
The formula is smooth + melts into the skin quickly. It first comes out of the tube like a cream then dissolves away like water.  After about 15-20 minutes you (or at least I did) will notice your eye area looks completely different. it’s brighter, no bags, + looks tighter, firmer.

My Overall thought + Pros/Cons


Overall, I love this product + plain to buy it. My Pros outweigh my cons lol but I will still share them.


Pros: Light formula, absorbs into the skin quickly, great for my oily/Combination + sensitive skin, results appear quicky, this item (if available) can be tried before bought through the Beautyfix website, tightens the skin around the eye, reduces fine line + brightens the eye area.


Cons: A bit on the pricey side (but so worth it) + not available in stores (at least to my knowledge).


I hope you enjoyed this review + definitely try to get your hands on this product! It does wonderful things for your sensitive eye area + is now a staple in my skincare routine!!


Love you much,


Kaiotee
