Physicians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm in Natural Peach REVIEW/DEMO


 photo IMG_8228_zpstndzref4.jpg
*Physicians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm in Natural Peach* $6.99


Hey loves, here is a mini review video of the The Physicians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm in Natural Peach.  It's one of the newest products in their Super BB line. It promise so many benefits, but the few things I like about it are the build in sunscreen SPF 20 and how it looks on my cheeks. The shade Natural Peach looks really nice against my medium to tan skin tone. It's still a good product, but just don't think it's a must have.

Wet n Wild Coverall Correcting Palette REVIEW/DEMO

 photo IMG_1500_zps5xydwumh.jpg
Wet n Wild Coverall Correcting Palette $4.99

Wet n Wild Coverall Correcting Palette is concealer palette that is used to correct the imperfections on the face for a flawless look. It has 4 concealer shades: purple, green, yellow and white. The colors are used to concealer blemishes, pimples, redness and dullness on the face.

Yellow is the opposite of purple on the color wheel. Use it to conceal under eye circles, purple spots and bruises.

Green is the opposite of red. Use conceal zits, pimples and redness.

Purple is the opposite of yellow. Use it on yellowish spots on the face.

 White is for highlighting the face. It will bring in light and will give an illusion of a lifted look on the face. Apply on the brow bone, eye lids and cheekbones. It has shimmers so use sparingly.

The texture is creamy, but not too creamy. It blends well on the face. I suggest using a good moisturizer and a face primer prior to application. Coverage is medium to buildable. It took 1-2 layers until I was happy with the coverage. For the price, it is a good quality product that does the job. There are many color concealer palettes in the market and this product easily can stand against some of the high-end brands. It works great and very affordable.

The video below is a demo. I learned that my finger is the best tool to use. It helped blend the product nicely on my face. I used all the colors except for purple. I didn't find the need to use purple. I hope you find it helpful.

Overall, it's a great product, but not for everyone. I only recommend it to people who needs a lot of concealing. It's also not ideal for everyday wear because it can be a bit time consuming, but it's perfect for special occasion when  you want more coverage.

 photo IMG_20150425_205517_zps2u71pz4j.jpg


Here is the eye makeup tutorial I created using the Diva Makeup Queen Dream Big Palette. I was in the mood for something smoky and dramatic, so I did a smoky blue eyes. I'm really loving this palette. The eye shadows are very pigmented and easy to blend. Make sure you check out my review of the palette HERE

 photo IMG_20150425_154820_zpsbukgyo8t.jpg


Directions:
  • Apply a white eye base all over the lids up to brow bone. I used NYX eye base in White.
  • Apply the blue eye shadow called Strength all over the eye lids with an eye shader brush.
  • Apply the matte soft brown called Perseverance above the crease using a blending brush. This get rid of the harsh line of the blue eye shadow.
  • Apply the matte brown eye shadow called Believe on the crease using a crease brush. 
  • Apply a little bit of the black eye shadow on the outer v with a pencil brush, then blend lightly with a blending brush. This will add a lot of definition to the eyes.
  • Apply the matte vanilla eye shadow called Vision on the brow bone and inner corner for highlight.
  • Apply the blue eye shadow, Perseverance on the lower lash line. 
  • Apply black eye liner on the upper and lower lash line. I used Sonia Kashuk gel liner in Ebony using an angled liner brush. 
  • Curl the lashes and apply mascara. I used Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara.
  • Apply false a pair of dramatic false lashes. It's optional.

Diva Makeup Queen "Dream Big Palette"

 photo IMG_8002_zps0cjz7aa3.jpg

My friend on Youtube, Wing of DivaMakeupQueen released her very own makeup palette. I was excited when she made the announcement in one of her videos. I've known her for over 5 years and she is the most talented, beautiful and hard working Youtube makeup gurus in my book. She also has a kind and loving heart. She inspires people with her music, makeup looks and tutorials and inspirational videos. Her motto in life, "Dream Big" inspired her to create this makeup palette with her subscribers in mind.

Dream Big makeup palette is a magnetic palette with 13 eye shadows. The One I got is called "Dream Big Palette + Mystery Collection. In comes with 1 magnetic palette, 13 eye shadows and 6 makeup in a pan. I received 5 eye shadows and 1 high lighter.

 photo IMG_8011_zpsqjflbdzc.jpg

Let's look at the packaging. It has cuteness all over it ^_^. I love the animated Wing in the front holding a lipstick with New York city in the background. One of her subscribers created the design. When you open it, you can find an inspirational quote from Wing encouraging you to "Dream Big". I love the big mirror. Every palette should have a big mirror like this one. The palette is magnetic and has a good weight to it. The eye shadows are secure inside. I also like that you're not stuck with the same eye shadows. I can remove and change the eye shadows as I please.

 photo IMG_8018_zpsiikau5nm.jpg

The palette comes with 13 eye shadows. 8 neutrals and 4 colorful eye shadows. I love the variety of colors and finishes to choose from. It has a combination of matte, shimmery and glittery/frosty finishes. This is important to create a well balanced look. The texture and pigmentation are also great. They are smooth and soft and can honestly stand against other high end brand eye shadows.

You can see the variety of finishes from the swatches

These are the neutral eye shadows. I absolutely love every single one of them. They are all pigmented, smooth and easy to blend. I love that it comes with a true brown, soft brown and taupe.

The names are top: Gratitude (glittery white), Vision (matte vanilla), Passion (matte taupe) and Purpose (shimmery light peach)
bottom: Courage (shimmery bronze), Perseverance (matte soft brown), Faith (matte medium brown) and Believe (matte true brown)

 photo IMG_8022_zpsjavidnn2.jpg


These are the dark and colorful eye shadows in the palette. Just like the neutral eye shadows, these are also soft, smooth, pigmented and easy to blend. They compliment the neutral eye shadows well.

The names are top: The shimmery/glittery black doesn't have a name on the bottom, Strength (shimmery midnight blue ) and Inspiration (medium pink)
bottom: Power (shimmery soft green with gold under tone) and Imagination (shimmery lavender)

 photo IMG_8021_zpsw0spkfpx.jpg



These are the makeup pans that comes with the Mystery Collection. You don't get to choose. I guess that's why it's called mystery, right? I received a highlighter and 5 eye shadows. They are all pigmented and gorgeous, but my favorite is the purple eye shadow. It's so rich and vibrant. I love it's metallic finish.

This is the only downfall for me in this collection. I wish I was able to pick what I want. I would rather have a blush than highlighter because I can use the lighter eye shadows as highlighters, and  shimmery green eye shadows is very similar to the one that is already in the palette. And these doesn't have any names. It's not a big deal, but it would be cool if they have names too like the ones in the palette.

Wet n Wild Foundation Brush REVIEW

 photo IMG_1583_zps0yc1pmpr.jpg

Soft, affordable and get's the job done!

Wet n Wild Beauty Build a Foundation, Foundation Brush is a makeup brush used to apply foundation on the face. It is made with synthetic bristles. It can be used for cream and liquid makeup. It's quiet soft and doesn't feel rough on the skin. It does a good job in applying and blending the makeup. The handle is made of hard plastic so it feels light.The size is smaller than a full size brush, but bigger than a travel size brush. It's also easy to clean. Just run it through water and rub on your palm with a touch of anti-bacterial liquid dish detergent, rinse, dry and it's good to go. Keep in mind that the brush sheds a few hair when washed. It's no big deal. It happens to most makeup brushes, drugstore or high-end. 

You can find it at your local drugstores for $2.99

I highly recommend it.

Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm REVIEW, SWATCH

 photo IMG_1730_zpsofswhjv5.jpg

Neutrogena Revitalizing lip balm gives life to dry and dull lips. It promises to make lips softer, rosier,  healthy looking and improve it's appearance in just one week. It is currently one of my favorite lip balms. I was hooked the first time I used it. The texture feels a tad bit thicker than a regular lip balm because it's heavily tinted, but I don't mind. It did a great job in keeping my lips soft and smooth. I used it everyday for an entire week, and noticed and felt a difference. My lips are not fuller as the product promised, but it's softer. Even El Hubby notice, so that's a good sign!

It comes in six shades. I have the shade "healthy flush" , a soft pink with a glossy and almost a shimmery finish. You can see in the photo below that it has fine little shimmers in it. I really like it. The heavily tinted so it's like a balm and a lip color/lip gloss in one. Saves me so much time when I do my makeup.

You can findit at your local drugstores for $8.99 or less. I know, that's pretty steep for a lip balm, but I promise you'll like it. And, you can always catch a sale at the drugstore.

See how it looks on my lips. I wore it on my 30th birthday. My lips are pigmented and the lip balm was opaque enough to cover my lips in one application.

 photo 20150207_104015_zpsw9btdr4q.jpg


I highly recommend it if you want the benefit of a lip balm with color. Skip if you prefer clear lip balms.

Wet n Wild Megaslicks BalmStain *Review/Swatches* Spring 2015

 photo IMG_1542_zps29b20fea.jpg

Love, love, love these!

These are the newest shades of the Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain moisturizing lip colours for Srping 2015. I love them because they are 2 in 1. It's a lip balm and a lip stain. See my review, swatches of the older shades HERE  They are moisturizing. I find them more moisturizing than the older shades. It has acai palm oil and subtle minty sensation.  I don't really need to apply a lip balm prior application. The texture is buttery and glides on smooth like a lip balm. They are pigmented. One application gives a medium coverage with a slight glossy finish. The color stays on for a good 2-3 hours for me with eating and drinking, but once the color fades, it leaves a subtle stain on my lips. 

I find them easy to apply. The point tip helps me stay on my lips and I don't really have to be precise. I do one quick swipe and rub my lips together and I'm done. My only complaint is the packaging. I have to be careful when opening and closing the top. I keep nicking the product. You can find them at your local drugstores for only $2.99

Let's check out the shades. They have really fun names!

  • 158A See If I Carrot- an orange shade. It's so appropriate for Spring. 
  • 159A Coral of the Story- a pinky coral shade. 
  • 160A Red-ioactive- a pinkish-red shade. A great shade for people who are afraid to rock red lips. It's not too bright.
  • 161A Made You Pink - a pinky-purple shade. A wearable pink shade for day time. 
  • 162A Truffle in Paradise- a brownish-reddish shade. Reminds me so much of the 90's and not Spring. I still like it
