YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer

3614270141584_Touche-Eclat-Primer_01

Today’s review will be on this YSL primer.  First and foremost I’ll start off with a little background about my skin.  I have dry, dehydrated looking skin most of the time. Which sucks and sometimes even makes the best make up out there look unpleasant. So I know besides a great morning and night skin regimen – I need a really good primer for my skin  Continue reading “YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer”

Favorite Lip Balm ATM: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

 I’ve tried high-end lip balms, pharmaceutical lip balms as well and out of all of them, I really like this lip moisturizer. It’s not my HG product but so far it is the best one I’ve tried. It has a slanted tip applicator and it smells like peppermint. It’s not greasy and it is quite long lastingIf you sleep in with this product on your lips, you will wake up with soft, luscious lips

Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment


Review: Overall- the gel feels a bit greasy going on, thus it is a bit problematic during the day, but overnight it’s okay for an eye cream. I find that it’s really thick and you really have to pat it on to get your skin to absorb it. It makes my undereye area feel moist which is great and I do notice that it makes my concealer look a bit better under the eye area. Personally, It does not feel like it has many anti-aging benefits which is what I was initially looking for in an eye cream. My under eye area is very dry and sometimes I get dark circles. I feel that I need something more “heavy duty” for my under eye area.

I honestly think I’ve tried better eye creams than this. Another thing that I dislike about this cream is the packaging – Although it comes in a pump and it’s very hygienic, you don’t really know how much you have left in there. Continue reading “Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment”

Magical Potion! – Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Lotion—II

 

Asia is well-known to be far ahead in their skin care products. I read that Japan is one of the many few countries out there who are really cautious about what they put in their beauty products. Their native consumers are quite aware of which ingredients are beneficial and which are not which makes it difficult for brands who put a lot of synthetics in their products to sell.  Doing all this research led me to a brand called: Koh Gen Do (Gen pronounced like ghen, not jen). The first product I decided to purchase was their Oriental Plants lotion for dry skin.

First Impressions: I have been using this magical lotion over a week and I find it different compared to the creams that I generally use. Different in the sense, that this lotion has a consistency slightly thicker than water. It absorbs into my skin quickly as well. This product makes my skin appear healthy and makes it slightly dewy. The moisture locks in all day, sometimes I even wear this under my primer. I just love it! It is quite expensive, but if it lasts me at-least 3 months I see myself buying another.  Continue reading “Magical Potion! – Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Lotion—II”

2016 Make up Wishlist

I’ve had my eyes on these products for a while now but I’m going to try waiting, which will be very difficult for me. I’m planning on getting them when Sephora has their annual sale!  Which should be coming up sometime in November.  Where we will get 20% off.  I plan on splurging that day because I won’t feel so bad given that I’m saving some money. Let me know if you have tried any of them and which products you are currently lusting over in the comments.

YSL Foundation – HOLY GRAIL!

 

I think we all have been in search for the type of foundation where you can’t tell that you’re wearing any.  

Review: The Touche eclat le tent Radiance awakening foundation has a  flawless finish. It’s stunning! I have olive toned skin, which is quite dry. I purchased a BD50 (Warm Honey) for YSL’s foundation it’s a tad bit darker than my actual skin tone. (I think next time I’ll try the BD40). I find that some foundations never “sit” right – they magnify any imperfections. I always want my foundation to look natural, like great skin, not “great foundation” . The description below that Sephora provided about this foundation is context that I completely agree with. For it really does give you a healthy glow. Continue reading “YSL Foundation – HOLY GRAIL!”

Kat Von D – Lolita Review

 



Review: We’ve all heard about this popular “Lolita” liquid lipstick colour that all the makeup bloggers and youtube gurus are raving about so I just had to pick one up one for myself to see what all this hubbub is about. After several uses, I must say that I’m very impressed. It’s very pigmented and goes on like butter. I find that I don’t have to use lipliner with this because of the slanted tip of the brush, it’s never a messy application. It doesn’t accentuate dryness either.  It is a true mauve-y brown/rose. It’s very matte on the lips but doesn’t feel dry at all. I think this is a colour that would look beautiful with any skintone. It holds up quite well through the day, very long-lasting even after eating,  I noticed that its still there.
