YSL Touch Éclat Neutralizer

IMG_20160128_144338

 

Yay!! Got my new YSL Touche Éclat color corrector!!

This one is in Apricot Bisque and I have explained in the photo the cost and what it does for you. 🎀 This was sent to me by Influenster for review purposes!! I use this under my foundation to hide any dark spots and over my foundation on the areas I want a touch of highlight.

So far I like the effect it has. I had some darkspots from a breakout on my chin and so I applied this first and it took away that pigmentation that sometimes shows through foundation. I put a little bit on the bridge of my nose for a bit of highlight and that seemed to work well!

If you are a fan of YSL, I think you should give these a try. They have 3 colors total:

Green: Corrects blemishes, conceals redness for an even skin tone.
Bisque: Corrects dark circles and dark spots. Illuminate.
Violet: Corrects yellow dull skin for a healthy glow.

Well, that’s all I have for now but stay tuned for new reviews and goodies!!

Until Next Time…

LOVE, PEACE, AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS!

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…

Sponsored Review – Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery

piZap_1411710411377

 

Hello guys!!!!

I hope you are all well!! I know I have been gone for way too long + I truly apologize! As you know I tend to be very busy with life + sometimes those things absolutely come first!! I have also been making YouTube videos so definitely check those out! I plan to do a life update video soon so I can let you all know how I’ve been getting on!

Today I am going to do a quick review for you on the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery cream I received from iFabbo (check out this product here http://bit.ly/DSRSPF50). I could not use this product all over my face for too long because it ended up being too heavy for me + made my skin even more oily (I have oily/combo skin).

20140925_215831~2

Price: $65 for 1.7 oz

Dermalogica is a well know skin care line + seems to be talked about a lot but for me this wasn’t the best option. I want to try more of their products but something that’s oil free + works with sensitive skin! The product is actually nice in the since of all the benefits it has, especially SPF50! I now only use it in my under eye are to see if it will help with fine lines…I will let you know after further research! 😉

Below I have entered zoomed in photos of the packaging details which list ingredients, info, + just additional information I felt you all might find helpful!

RATING AND OVERALL THOUGHTS

3-5stars Rilakkuma

Overall I rate this product a 3 out of 5. It have great benefits but it was just not right for my particular skin type. I will continue to use it under my eyes to see if maybe it will work as an eye cream for me during the day. Trail + error are always going to be the case when it comes to skin care + not everything is for everyone however, I hope you guys give this a try + see how it works for you!!

I will back real soon so keep an eye out for some new stuffs!!! ^_^ ♥ ♥

Until Next Time…

Sponsored Review: Valentia Skin Care – Even Glow Serum Review

Hey all!

I am back today with a review of a new product that I’ve been trying out. So I am majorly into skincare and anytime I get a chance to try something new and cool, I am all for it. The product I received is the Even Glow Serum from Valentia Skin Care.

CYMERA_20140608_205853

 

Right off I want to say that not everything is for everyone so if it doesn’t/does work for me of course it may/may not work for you…on that note, this product did not work for me. 😦

 

I have really sensitive combonation/oily skin so sometimes just sunlight breaks my skin out. This product was unfortunately one of those factors that caused my skin to react negitively however, this could work great for someone with less sensitive skin!

 

CYMERA_20140608_205944

 

 

This product seems to be something that would provide amazing benefits and has some ingredients in it that I know has work wonders for a lot of people but in combination, make my skin break out in a rash. I sampled a few areas and had the same reaction in each area.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

Overall, I again feel this products has potential. The scent is nice and smells like orange citrus. The color is also an orange color and looks like a natural shade not bright and artificial. The serum absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t feel sticky at all. very nice texture. If you don’t have sensitive skin, I think this will work for you. Give it a try and see how your skin benefits from it! Hope you found this helpful!!

UNTIL NEXT TIME…

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Sugar Skull Minerals: Review, Swatches, + Discount!

Hello Hello Hello my fabulous beauties!  Today I have a sponsored review for you. Victoria of Sugar Skull Minerals (Find her amazing Etsy shop here) was kind enough to send me some samples of her products as well as a sneak peek of her “Pool Party Collection” that will be released on July 4, 2014!! The collection is beautiful and I can’t wait to share this with you all.

SAMPLE COLLECTION #1:

Each one of these are swatched over Fyrinnae’s primer Pixie Epoxy except for the blushes (will be labeled).

From left to right: Sunkissed (Vegan – Blush), Sun Burnt (Vegan – Blush), Bikini, Marco Polo, Cannon Ball (Vegan), Deep End (Vegan), Margarita (Vegan), Beach Ball (Vegan), + Pina Colada (Vegan).

 

 

Thoughts + Extras!

Overall, I think these are really great products, the only thing I do not fancy is that Pina Colada and April look exactly the same on my skin because they are light colors but contain gold shimmers + only the gold picks up on my complexion, other than that, I love these! The formula is very smooth + the pigmentation is amazing!! I think my favorites are Cannon Ball + Deep End. Those Purple and Blue shades are just crazy gorgeous!!

Since the Pool Party Collection does not get released until July, you can actually PRE-ORDER the collection but you must do so by June 23, 2014 in order to receive a 30% discount!! Woot Woot!!  Do not miss out on this deal because I’m sure you will be like…”OH MAN…WHY DIDN’T I BUY THAT SHADE WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE??”” MmmmHmmm, you know we all do it, so don’t forget!!

Thank you again to Victoria for letting me try out these awesome products and please guys check out her Etsy shop! I have found some wonderful treasures on Etsy! I hope you guys enjoyed and I will be back soon with another awesome post!

Until Next Time…

I think I’m over Youtube but I’mmmm baaaack to blogging!!!!!

Hello all!!!

Sorry for being away forever…AGAIN! Lol. I started a new job and I needed to adjust and get use to my new schedule. Now that things are some what normal again, I will start creating more post!! It has been very interesting getting back to work because this field (insurance) is new to me and I have to learn so much. I’m not sure if I love this field but I’m doing what I gotta do!!

YOUTUBE

So, in regards to Youtube, I am not sure if I will be making videos any more and if I do, they will be very limited. I don’t feel like Youtube is that fun community that it use to be ack when I fjirst started. It seems to be all about popularity and making a buck instead of being a community of like minded people having fun and getting to know people (like what I signed up for). Who knows, we will see what happens I guess.

VOXBOX

While I was away on my hiatus, I received another VoxBox from Influenster. This was the J’Adore VoxBox. I received some pretty cool things in this one and still have a ton of the candy left (I don’t each much chocolate). See what I received below!

20140222_130648

Boots Clay Mask

Kiss Eyelashes

Red Rose Creme Caramel Tea

Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight Hair Treatment

Family size bag of Hersey Kisses

I must say, I love the Frizz Ease treatment especially since I got my hair cut and need to use my flat iron more often than before. I liked it so much I bought more. I bought this product before I got the voxbox but used it during the time I received this and was glad because I went through it quickly lol.

I’m glad to be back to blogging and I have more that I will be posting soon. I just wanted to let you guys know I was back!!!! Miss you all and chat soon!

Until Next Time…

Influenster Holiday VoxBox Review #1: Kiss Nail Dress Strips.

image

Hey all! I wanted to do a quick review on one of the products I received via my Influenster Holiday Voxbox (check out http://www.influenster.com for more info on how to receive these boxes! No cost, No gimmicks!).

image

The product I will be reviewing is the Kiss Nail Dress Nail Strips. The strips are similar to the Minx nail trend where a polish “sticker” is applied + adhered to the nail using a top coat (I think I explained that correctly lol).

image

In the photo above, I am using the strip on my ring finger only as an accent nail. I really liked this + even though the package states that you do not need a top coat, I put one on anyway + my design lasted almost a full two weeks ( started to peel after about 10-11 days).

Product Info:

•Price: $6.99
•Number of strips: 28
•Can be used for: Fingers + toes (just flip the strip upside down – shown below).

image

•Lasting Time: Package states 10 days
•Style Code:56703 – KDS05
•Application Directions:

image

So, all in all would I buy these? Absolutely! They last a long time, they look professional, their easy to appy,  the cost is great + they come in a bunch if different designs! If you want to switch up your look and want a fabulous nail design w/o the Salon cost, I think this is the way to go!

Until next time….
