Algenist REVEAL Concentrated Luminizing Drops Review in the color **rosé**

Algenist REVEAL Concentrated Luminizing Drops rosé review, hello there lovies, let’s jump right into today’s blog post!! Let me tell you, it’s a pretty one, and the pigment is incredible as well, so so beautiful!! So, I am first going to say, that I got these at a discount, thankfully, I paid $14.99 for this, it is full size, and was brand new in the box! I found it at Marshall’s! I have found TONS of the Algenist line at Marshall’s, and TJmaxx in the last month or so, amazing deals, literally half the price of retail, I have picked up a few of the makeup products, this being one of them, and have really been loving them so far, so I thought I would do a review for this one, since it’s my favorite, and SO beautiful! My Marshall’s only had 1 of these, so I had to grab it! I was excited, because I have a sample size of this, and have tried it, and knew it was an awesome highlighter/ illuminizer! This comes in 3 different shades, the one that I was able to purchase is in the shade Rose, yes it’s gorgeous, and a must have in my opinion! It is so versatile, and is very light in formula, and I love putting just a little on the tops of my cheek bones, it gives the perfect amount of shine, and shimmer, but still remains light, not overpowering, without the chunky glitter look. Also, a little of this goes a long way, so this bottle will last for years I am sure! This is available at Sephora and retails for $38, but you can find them at TJMaxx, and Marshall’s right now, you just have to look! This is actually healthy, and good for your skin, check out the chart below! Buy it at Sephora.com here

Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 11.12.49 PM.png

Hello, hello my beautiful lovies!! I hope you are all having a great Monday, and an amazing start to your day!! Today’s blog is a pretty one, thank you for joining me, and checking out my review. I am reviewing this Pixi by Petra, we are just going to refer to it as Pixi from now on in the blog just to make it easier on myself, lol. I was excited that I received this as PR from Pixi, they are the best, and I love all of their amazing products!! I really love getting packages from them, and feel very lucky! They sent me this beautifully cute 3 piece beauty kit, it is available at Target, and online at Pixi by Petra. This kit retails for $22.00, this kit is available in 2 different options, and collections, today I am reviewing the hello! Rose beauty kit, and it is part of their new collection, which is perfect for Spring! The kit was sent with real mini rose petals, their PR packages are the best, they really make an effort for packaging, and presentation! Opening the packaging it smelt like roses, such a bonus! This kit is perfect for any rose lover, the colors in the kit are so pretty, and pink, yet delicate, and will suite many skin tones, because of the light colors. I literally haven’t found a product that I don’t love from Pixi, they are hands down my favorite drugstore (high end drugstore) brand, I have been using, and loving their products for years!! This little kit is perfect for someone who wants to try out their products, without spending to much, etc. My favorite thing in this kit is the lip gloss, it’s the most beautiful shade of pink, it’s not to bright, or overpowering, it’s the perfect nude mauve, not sticky on the lips, and has a good wear time, and smells sweet, and glides on the lips effortlessly. I love this lip gloss, I will be getting it in the full size! I also really love the blush duo, the pink is subtle, and easily blendable into the skin, the highlight side of the duo is the same, and perfect for highlighting under the brow bone, or the cheeks, I used it for both, and love the color, and touch of bling it provides! This 3 piece beauty kit is defintely worth a try, as I am sure you will find a favorite, and fall in love with Pixi by Petra!

Influenster Voxbox Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Review

 

screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-12-24-34-pm

img_8777img_8776

Hello my lovies!! How are you all doing today? Happy Wednesday to all of you!! I hope your are all having a great start to your week!! This week is a slower week for me with work, so it will be nice to have the break, and have the opportunity to catch up on other stuff that needs to be taken care of, and on blogs, heck, maybe this week I will make a youtube video even, okay probably next week, or this weekend, and edit it, since I need to make one for this post anyways for influenster! Wish me luck 🙂 

This review is all about Influenster, and Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder! Laura Mercier is my all time favorite brand for translucent setting powders!!! They are launching more colors other then translucent, and influenster gave me the opportunity to test it out first for free, and completely complimentary!! I love influenster!! I was a little worried about this box though because I thought it was only introducing the new darker (for deeper/darker skin tones) powder, I was very happy that it was a box for multiple ones, and skin tones!!  I was excited that I got the translucent, because I was running low on my other one, and was going to purchase it anyways, and the powder puff, so this was perfect that I got into this one! Yeah for awesome, and high end Influenster voxbox’s finally! I have been getting so many drugstore ones, I was wondering if I was ever going to get a good high end brand one to review! Glad I did!! Anyways if you don’t know about Influenster, you definitely should, it’s an amazing review website that you join, and the more active you are on social media, and on the site, the more campaigns you will receive. I have gotten about 10 so far, and love them!! I definitely recommend joining, if you would like an invitation, I would be happy to send you one, just leave your email in the comments! I got lucky with this one, because it was a product I already use, and love! This is by far the best setting powder I have ever used!! Check out my review below! Thanks for reading! 

My Review:

As I mentioned above, Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder is my all time favorite setting powder! I use it for setting my concealer under my eyes, and all over setting face powder. It works great, and leaves my skin looking flawless, without being cakey, and overly powdery. A little bit goes a long way with this product, and you do get a good amount, you get 1 oz. in the full size. It retails at $38, which is somewhat pricey for the amount of product, but it’s worth the price, and does seem to last a long time. This is available for purchase at where Laura Mercier products are sold like, Nordstrom, Sephora, etc. The setting powder that they are launching, and what this campaign is for is the colored translucent powders, as they are brand new to the Laura Mercer translucent loose setting powder family! Now it will perfect for many different skin tones. I do have oily skin, and a light complexion so I use the regular current translucent shade. This powder has a silky texture, smooth, and doesn’t sit into fine lines, and wrinkles, or my large pores. It lasts all day without needing a touch up, which is important for someone who is as busy as I am!! I love this powder, and definitely recommend it! If you would like to purchase it, please use the links below, thanks! 

Details & Care:
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder contains the finest French cashmere talc, which results in sheer, silky powder that looks and feels natural. It also contains a unique light-reflecting ingredient that creates a soft-focus appearance on your skin, minimizing the visibility of fine lines and imperfections.
How to use:

Dip your powder puff (sold separately) in the powder and then massage the powder in the puff. Remove excess by tapping the puff on top of your skin. Use a rolling motion to work the powder into your skin.

Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Miracle *Diamond Sponge* Review

Hello lovies, happy happy Wednesday to all of you! I hope your having a great half of the week day, hump day! We made it through half the week, lol!! Okay, I will keep it real, I am writing this on Sunday, lol trying to catch up on blog posts while I have a free moments, so Happy Sunday! lol! Busy, busy weekend for me! Lots, and lots of work, 3 days straight to be exact! Yikes, but it’s all good, I love what I do 🙂 Today’s blog is a good one! I searched high and low at 3 different ULTA stores to find this new sponge, the miracle diamond sponge by real techniques, and finally found it, yeah!! I wanted to get a review up quickly, because it’s pretty awesome, and beautiful as well! Hey, it’s always fun to apply your makeup with something beautiful right? I am a sucker for pretty things, and diamonds for that matter, after all, diamonds are a girls best friend!! 

I am a huge beauty blender fan, if you haven’t been introduced into the makeup sponge world, let me introduce you. I, at first was skeptical, but wow, such a life changer, seriously SO worth the money, the look you achieve with applying your foundation, and concealer with a beauty sponge is unlike anything you can achieve with your hands, or a brush! If you have never tried any type of sponge, you really should! Okay, so like I said I normally use beauty blender brand sponges, but I like to try new ones, especially ones that are much cheaper, because who doesn’t like saving money? If it works the same, why not spend less? In my opinion, there is no reason to spend more! So I have been a long time fan of the real techniques miracle complexion sponge, it applies my makeup just like a beauty blender does, and it’s so much cheaper! It’s literally 1/3 the price of a beauty blender! I love the flat angle to the sponge, it works really well at patting out concealer, and fits perfectly around my nose, and eyes. So, as you can imagine since I love the regular miracle sponge by real techniques so much, I had to try the new diamond one! The shape, and angles really interested me, I wondered how well it would really work. It is also very pretty, yep, I feel for the pretty factor of it!!! Their is a price difference though, the miracle diamond sponge is $9.99, and the regular miracle sponge is $5.99. All in all, considering I don’t think the price difference is to bad.

Review-

This sponge is beautifully packaged, and once you get it open, ps it was difficult to open, but I guess that is to prevent theft in the stores, so it makes sense. The sponge once wet, expands nicely, definitely get’s to a bigger size, and more soft, not to big, not to small, just the right size to hold in your hand. The different textures, and edges make my foundation, and concealer application look flawless, it provides a true airbrushed effect, just like with any beauty blender, or sponge application, without being streaky, or having brush strokes, which is nice!! The pointed tip gets right into my inner corner, and crevices of my nose, really blending out my foundation, and concealer without making it look patchy, or smeary. I enjoy this beauty sponge more than the original Real Techniques beauty sponge, but will continue to use both, and the variety, because I like to switch it up every now and a then for variety of application, etc. I definitely will be repurchasing this product again, when this one is done. The only negative thing about the miracle diamond sponge that it is awkward to hold especially when you use both ends, and it’s too pretty, lol, it took me forever to break into the packaging, and actually use, and review it for you all, because I didn’t want to mess up the grey/white marble color of the sponge! Ugh, the OCD in me was screaming lol! What are your thoughts? Is this something your wanting to try? Let me know! 

Details-

This multi-faceted Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge is uniquely designed to work with multiple products on different areas of your face. No two Miracle Diamond Sponges are alike – each has its own unique swirl design.

Benefits:
Pointed tip covers small imperfections
Larger flat sides function as a wedge to apply makeup to larger areas like your forehead and cheeks

Top works great to buff and blend out your makeup for a flawless finish

Features:
Use wet for dewy application and dry for full coverage powders
Replace every 1-3 months
Ideal for creams, or liquids for flawless results

How to Use-
Use wet for dewy application and dry for full coverage powders.

p.s. if your reading this, do you notice the little hair around the very top of the last picture on the tip?? I mean really?? I died laughing just typing that…… and no it’s not what you think it is lol, the things you see while editing photos or videos is hilarious I tell ya!! 🙂

Hello Lovies!!! Happy Friday, happy weekend! Yeah, today has been crazy busy with work, so I am just now writing, and getting this blog post up for the day! I am still playing catch up on blogs, so bare with me! I recently was in Target, and saw a huge end cap full of new e.l.f. makeup, and beauty products. Some of you may remember me receiving the e.l.f. voxbox from influenster (I will link it below, if you would like to check it out) I did a full review on a variety of new products that not only were new product from e.l.f., but some old ones as well. I was so impressed with the quality, and shades, that I decided I wanted to try some more products from the brand! I couldn’t resist the end cap I saw, it was beautifully displayed, and pretty much wanted it all, because it is all so affordable! I held back, and only picked up a few items that I have been dying to try from e.l.f. cosmetics! I love their prices the best, I really wanted to put a few of these products to the test, I don’t think all of them are necessarily new, but they were new to me, and products that were only offered online up until now, so yeah, for having them in store at Target!! So great, and easy for me to just grab! Like I said, a lot of these products up until now were only available on the e.l.f. website, and this just makes it so much easier, since I (we) can now just pick them up at Target! Hey, paying shipping is never fun, so this was awesome! Let’s check out all I got, and am excited about! Please realize this is just a haul, not a review 🙂 Enjoy! I can’t wait to try these out!!
