I am back with another cool blog post + this one is a unboxing/mini review thanks to Influenster and YSL!!! WOOT WOOT!!!!!
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!
Note: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”
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!!
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:
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:
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…
I hope you like the video + please share with me the products you regret buying!!!!
Here is another video for you! I hope you enjoy and give some of these items a try!!
Today I have another video for you and I hope you enjoy and leave me some suggestions! Kisses and huggles!!!!!
Ooooh, Another video! Please be patient with me because this is a reboot/starting over channel so better vids soon to come! I have new videos every Monday!!
I know I’ve been gone for a little bit but I’ve been exhausted!! It takes me an hour + a half to get to work each morning and about a full 2 hours to get home!! My days are long + exhausting + sometimes I just need to rest so I hope you all understand!
So, this post (+ a few others coming up) are way over due but better later than never right?? So I purchased the NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer off of the NYX website. I tend to get all giddy and sparkly eyed when I see new items so I had to try it out! The primer cost $17 which I thought was a bit much but of course, I decided to buy it any way hahaha. Now, on to what I thought + the post I left on the NYX site.
When I received my package, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to try this product. Right away I was put off by the spatula. That didn’t seem very sanitary to me. To explain my impression further, let me show you what I posted on the NYX website…
I will post on my blog with more detail but, this primer just is not for me! I thought it would be amazing because soooo many NYX products are. This formula doesn’t seem to be any different when it comes to basic priming. The gold flakes are a bit random and not small enough to illuminate the skin. The product feels wet and sticky to me and makes my combo/oily skin a wee bit unhappy. Also, the packaging would be so much better in a pump form…much more sanitary. All in all this product has the potential to be great but I just don’t think it’s there yet.
- Smells Great
- Cons – Beauty
- Poor Texture,
- Not Effective
- I do not recommend this product.
- CURRENT THOUGHTS
- I decided to try this product again after watching other reviews + talking to a few people + we agree that this product is much better as a serum and not a primer! When I use the product this way, I can actually see benefits. I first cleanse my face, exfoliate, then tone. After I tone my skin, the Honey Dew Me Up seeps into the skin must better + does not leave that sticky + wet feeling. After about a week my skin looked much healthier + plump. I feel like the gold in the product is still pointless but the ingredients are rather nice if used the right way. I really feel this product should be repackaged + marketed as a serum because it’s got great potential!!
- Overall I am starting to like this product since using it the new way. Hopefully NYX will see that this is a much better product when used a serum! I hope you guys found this post helpful and I will chat with you again soon!
- Until Next Time…
