BEAUTYBLENDER

Beauty blender Micro.Mini 

This is the baby of the beauty blender in a mini form to help with the application of highlighting, conturing, and concealing. It’s purposely shaped to perfectly reach the smallest parts of your face.

Introduced 15 years ago!!!

You wanna wet your beauty blender with water and it will double in size almost but squeeze out the excess, just make sure to clean it after every use.

CLINIQUE 

Him Dual-Ended High Impact Mascara & Primer Duo

This is great, why? because it’s a two-in-one product that’s why! Already a clinique fan I’m happy for this. It’s got a two-sided lash primer and mascara for longer-lasting eye looks and more full, soft, very lustrous lashes.

Beauty Staycation PLAY! BOX (JULY)

Happy Wednesday!

Hello my lovelies and how are you all, what have you been up to this summer?

As you can already tell there’s only thing that brought me back to my desk to publish a new post because otherwise these days I’m just not able to find the time, that explains my lack of presence.

A little back story of this unboxing first, so I was really trying to film a PLAY! unboxing for July rather than just a regular blog post. I had big plans for it and was all excited since it would be the very first time that I pull out a tripod along with a camera and hit record instead of capture. But bottom line I didn’t come through, after like 3 attempts and shortage of time (I was literally squeezing in few mins a day to film my unboxing video) I got to practice a bit of filming and bit of editing as well so it wasn’t a lose lose situation. However, after missing out for the first time, I did not want to delay this one at all considering the fact it hit my doorsteps like around the 11th.

So here we are… sorry about the long intro but I had to share with you all you know 🙂

UNBOXING BEGINS NOW

BEAUTY STAYCATIONNN

That’s our theme for July and that’s not the only interesting thing about this box, scroll on to find out why 🙂

IT COSMETICS

SUPERHERO ELASTIC STRECH VOLUMIZING MASCARA 

It’s a innovative lengthening mascara that gives lashes volume, reach, and lift with just one coat.

BAREMINERALS

GEN NUDE MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLOR IN SWAG

It’s a cream to matte liquid lipstick in a blushing mauve shade with stay all day formula that is light-weight yet full coverage. Just give it 10 mins to completely dry!

Right off the back, after trying it out I can say it is so soft but doesn’t feel heavy even when you first apply it. Also such a pretty color!

IMG_1410.jpg

IMG_1415.jpg

MILK MAKEUP

COOLING WATER

It’s a hydrating gel stick that refreshes and soothes skin for a quick boost of moisture when you’re on the go.

Basically a moisturizer to keep you cool through the summer heat. Enriched with marine minerals!

IMG_1423

BRIOGEO

ROSARCO MILK REPARATIVE LEAVE-IN CONDITIONING SPRAY

It’s a ultra-light leave in conditioning spray that delivers non-greasy moisture without weighing down your hair. Uses plant powered products!

Now, I don’t know about this, maybe I should I try it out next time.

IMG_1434.png

BOSCIA

CHARCOAL PORE PUDDING INTENSIVE WASH-OFF TREATMENT

It’s a great size sample let me tell you that! And actually it’s a cool looking mask with swirled black and white charcoal balances skin’s moisture, absorbs impurities, andd minimizes the appearance of pores. A skin detox in a jar!

Woah, that’s hand-full right there, right off the back I’m hyped about this. Smells nice!

Sephora Play Unboxing: May

THE RISING STARS! 

Hey loves, May has come to an end and it has been great, however, a PLAY unboxing of May was missing but we have just enough time to get to it before we hit June.

So come with me for a fun unboxing outdoors today, some sunshine, fresh air, and stellar products, might as well grab your favorite drink after all, finals week just ended! 

Ready? Let’s head out … 

20170526_121715.png

20170526_120928

20170526_120952

20170526_121105

First can I say I’m really feeling this whole bag here) ( in the box is this GRANDE LIPS lip plumper in clear which I misread as Gerard Cosmetics first hehe anyhow, this is a clear gloss that uses a patented hyaluronic acid-infused formula that helps visibly plump lips while also softening them over time. You can wear this alone or under your lip products, recommended twice daily. 

20170526_121143

Second in the box is this highlighter by TRESTIQUE highlight + perfect multipurpose stick in Maldives Luminescent  I did receive this in a ipsy bag as well before but tbh I didn’t really use it and this broke as I was opening it oops. A silky smooth gel highlighter stick that pairs a barely-there, lightweight texture with a champagne pink shimmer. 

Try applying it on bare skin or over a tinted moisturizer for best results. 

20170526_121337.png

Third in the box we have a SUNDAY RILEY ceramic slip clay cleanser this is a luxurious clay cleanser that uses potent ingredients to minimizes the appearance of pores and brighten for a clear and more balanced skin. sold! I already love this 

For better results let it sit on your face for a minute before washing it off with warm water.

20170526_121429

Forth in my hand is the CHRISTOPHE ROBIN cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt this one is for your hair of course, if you haven’t noticed there was a product from this brand in a previous play box, Sephora seems to really love this one because this one is to cleanse, purify, and rebalance a sensitive or oily scalp omg, did they read my mind? I NEED THIS! It’s a shooting sea salt scrub that will leave hair soft and refreshed

Use it as a daily shampoo or a weekly detox for oily hair and dandruff or even post coloring to soothe itchiness. AMAZING AND THANK YOU! 

20170526_121516

Fifth is this cool lip product from NUDESTIX magnetic matte lip color in Greystone a three-in-one matte lip stain, lip color, and lip liner that’s got a long-wearing, intensely pigmented formula in a bold deep shade. So this is whatever you like it to, lip liner, a little lip stain or full on lip color. 

20170526_121614

Perfume Sample this month’s pick is the MAISON MARGIELA ‘Replica’ Beach Walk transport yourself to a sandy seaside memories with this radiant scent of bergamot, coconut milk, and lemon.

Family :  Fresh 

Top Notes: Bergamot, pink pepper, lemon

Middle Notes: Ylang ylang, coconut milk, heliotrope

Base Notes: Musk, cedar wood, Benzoin 

 That brings this post to a end! Hope you enjoyed it 🙂

1’st Blogiversary :)

Hey You Lovely People!

So according to WordPress, I have officially hit a Blog Anniversary… just like that BOOM!

blogiversary-001

Let me tell you, it did give me the super high energy coming back to the blog after many days. If you have yet to notice, I have been MIA for a while, which sucks, I feel really behind and underachieved. I may sound ungrateful and whiny but trust me that’s not the issue and the only reason I feel bad is because it’s a big moment for me in my bogging journey as well as the first and though I had planned to make things happen unfortunately didn’t come through. Mainly, because this is pure hobby for me but I want take this moment and as always ‘THANK YOU’ all from the bottom of my heart and sorry for such a boring 1’st Blogiversary and the lack of communication and posts leading up to this big day.

blogiversary-17.jpg

To think back to last year, this time around I had only signed up for an account with WordPress and here I am today, seems a bit unreal but also a strong reminder that if you get an impulse to do something, just do it. It has been one sweet, fulfilling experience, this blogging community is everything so cheers to everyone!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO XCLUSIVE GLAM

AND                          

A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY LOVELY SUPPORTERS 

 

B.O.S BellaPierre Mineral Blush (Review)

HAPPY MONDAY!

A LITTLE PROGRESS EACH DAY ADDS UP TO BIG RESULTS.

@AgentSteven

Yes, it’s back… but first tell me how was your week and most importantly how was your weekend, I wanna know.

I have proudly made it to my second B.O.S (Best Of Samples) post, the following week. Before getting into it, I would like to tell you how happy I was upon finally giving the blog a new name, it gave me a new kind of energy for my blog and you all were amazing as always. Now please read on for the review of this (amazing) blush I have used the word amazing too much! 

BELLA PIERRE Mineral Blush (Autumn Glow)

20170122121031_IMG_0402.png

LOVE IT Because :

  • First and fore most, I fell in love with this one after nervously trying on just a bit
  • It just blends into my skin so well after I put it on, thus giving a natural glow to my cheeks
  • I used it all throughout fall including winter days( PERRFECT FOR THOSE DAYS) basically didn’t put it down after seeing how pretty it looked on my cheeks
  • My pores tiny to medium or whatever size they were not screaming over this blush 
  • Most importantly it’s a very subtle, natural blush
  • You can wear more or less, build it up and there are more shades
  • Overall, love love love it! 

Exceptions:

  • It’s PRICEY… I don’t know about you but it’s original price is $45 and I was a little just a little shook considering that it’s such wonderful + everyday blush that makes my skin look super smooth and soft. 
  • As with everything I use the slightest amount first, clean off the access, and slightly tap it or dab it? for my kind of a look.
  • Other than this thing is great!

This one if from the Ipsy Glam Bag

Yes, this was a MONDAY post and Yes, this was my second favorite of the samples that I used consistently, also what told me to start reviewing these little goodies (it was a good decision) I’m enjoying it. Hope you are too!

B.O.S: Sephora Collection LashCraft Length & Volume Mascara (Review)

Happy Monday!

Wake Up With Determination & In Result Go To Bed With Satisfaction

It has been so long that I did review on my blog… why, why, why? I honestly don’t know and to be honest I also thought I didn’t know ‘how to’ review products properly, that’s just what I felt. So now I actually use products (new ones, different ones) so I’m well able to review them. This one if I tell you, I wanted to get on here and review right away (that’s how much I loved it) that didn’t happen obviously but today it’s happening so read on to find out why I loved it.

SEPHORA COLLECTION LashCraft Length & Volume Mascara REVIEW

20170309154045_IMG_0877

LOVE IT BECAUSE :

  • It instantly made my lashes look longer (and I tell you I don’t wear too much)
  • It had no fallout (which is my biggest problem) there was the slightest bit when I wore it last time, you probably can’t even tell from distance 
  • The wand is great, gives me much desired control 
  • No clumping, in fact it separates every lash and makes them stand out  
  • Lengthens lashes 
  • It’s great overall, I love it and it’s been easy to use for me

Exceptions:

  • I do always clean the wand against the container before applying to my lashes, which prevents clumping.

20170309154717_IMG_0887.jpg

That was nice and short (finally, I didn’t blab too much 🙂 I plan on following this layout for all my B.O.S posts, let me know if you like it. Of course, these reviews are ‘my’ honest opinions and experiences with these products, it may work differently for you so do always feel free to share yours under every review in the comments below.

Thank You & Have A Lovely Day or Night my lovelies xo

The Best Of Samples!

Hey there, how was your day? Hope you had a good one or if you just woke up, then in that case; Good Morning, have a beautiful day.

NEW SERIES. NEW SERIES. NEW SERIES 

Today’s blog post is not really about a product or a topic but rather an introduction to my new series.

Introduction to what you may wonder, well there’s no wondering here because this is a series that will bring you ‘the best of samples’ and to insure the best is the best indeed, there would be a corresponding one ‘the worst of samples’ (when possible) 

images.jpegOkay, so basically the deal is I’ve been thinking about sharing some really good products that were actually samples but they are worth sharing,raving,and obsessing over. So I finally decided I would introduce to you guys a brand new series in which I will discuss, review and share some of the samples I’ve been loving or in that case even hating. But let me warn you, you may or may not find as many regular posts for ‘the worst of samples’ why? Well, only because if I don’t like something the first few times I try it or doesn’t show a negative or positive effect, I just leave it right then and there so there’s not much for me to say and I wouldn’t want to waste your time either.

Stay Tuned For Reviews Coming Soon.Soon.

I’m really looking forward to this at the same time hoping you will too 🙂  it’s perfect especially for those monthly subscriptions too, we see the unboxing so why not see how the products hold up to their promises and descriptions. What you say? Leave a comment if you’ve doing something like this all along and I’m just late hehe in that case I have some catching up to do. (well, I mean I have to do that in general)
