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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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)

20170210150347_IMG_0758

First up is this LIVING PROOF Full Dry Volume Blast weightless hairspray that delivers long-lasting volume and texture for fuller looking hair that is also silky-soft.

20170210150816_IMG_0763

Next, we have this JOSIE MARAN Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm it’s a game changer for makeup, a skincare hybrid primes and finishes with a whipped formula for luminous effect. This for some reason speaks luminous to me even in the jar hehe.

20170210150850_IMG_0764

Oh, here we have this month’s perfume pick, which is just like a ‘cherry on top’ 🙂 it’s the CHLOE FLEUR DE PERFUME infused with rose petals and fresh notes of verbena softened by freesia that create a lighthearted and luxe scent.

20170210150858_IMG_0765

Top Notes: Lemon essence, absolute verbena, freesia

Middle Notes: Rose, cherry blossom

Base Notes: White cedar essence, bitter almond, amber

                     20170210150938_IMG_0767

Look what we have here, another GLAM GLOW Glow starter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer it’s a two-in-one moisturizer and luminizer that hydrates, blurs, and enhances any complexion with a “lit-from-within” finish ohh!

20170210150948_IMG_0768

After that we have here the BOBBI BROWN Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick In Golden Pink it’s super-creamy it looks creamy and soft, and it’s waterproof, I like that, glides on, blends easily without tugging for crease.

20170210151000_IMG_0769

Lastly, that’s it right yeah the last thing we have here looks interesting it’s from BENEFIT COSMETICS Whatt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter told you it looked interesting oh and it’s their bestselling highlighter that defines facial features with a luminous, soft-focus sheen and an easy-to-apply cream to powder formula. Sold, there is a lot going on in this little guy and I’m in love with it.

That was one fun unboxing today, not to mention, I was just bored and this made me so happy, see I even got it up for you TODAY 🙂 probably the quickest upload yet but hey hope you enjoy it, and if you do please give it a ‘LIKE’ let me know that you liked it. I hope your day was a fabuulous one 🙂

Flawless Under-Eye Concealer

Happy Friday!

If it’s morning time for you as well then, in that case; wish you a good, positive, beautiful morning and hope you’re Friday is a fantastic one, also I thank you for taking the time to read my post.

If you’re kind of mad at me, or just irritated ? of course for not touching on the good old ‘beauty’ posts then worry no more, today’s post is all about that and many more are on the way so without a further due I’m getting right into it…

In this post I’ll be sharing with you my personal routine for applying concealer to the under-eye area without it looking  crusty and all cakey, I might shock some people when I say I didn’t wear canceler until recently no I did not have perfect under-eye I just didn’t feel comfortable the way it looked on my skin or you can say I didn’t know to apply it properly, whatever you like to believe but on my defense I would say I did exactly what all the makeup guru’s did on youtube but it never looked the same for me.

under-eye-makeup

Say Bye Bye To Ugly Crusty Under-Eye Makeup

Makeup or no makeup, I make sure the area under my eyes is never dry, first and fore most I try to stay hydrated. I keep my under-eye area well moisturized by applying a dab of vaseline lightly every night or a good eye-cream, these days I just went back to using the vaseline trick.

Now, in the morning to the actual application:

  1. Prep I apply moisturizer, and sometimes I would even go in with the slightest bit of vaseline again. Dab that on with my finger very light handed.
  2. Skip The Base I have noticed that it’s best for me to leave out my under-eye area when applying base to the rest of my face, so that’s what I do now and it’s made a difference, a difference that I actually wear concealer now hehe
  3. Use A Setting Spray Next step is to take a setting spray and spray that on my brush, but it can’t be too wet. And yes I use a brush, I know most people use a beauty blender/sponge but the brush works fine for me. If you’re curious as to what brush I use I’ll make sure there here for you to check out: The Bestope Makeup Brushes they’re super inexpensive but are working great for me, I even reviewed them a while back, you can check that out right here Bestope Affordable Makeup Brushes Review
  4.  Blend Properly The last thing is to just use the brush in pressing motions or dabbing motion whatever you like to call it but the concern is to not swipe the brush around to blend out the concealer, what concealer I use? Everyone’s Favorite, Okay Almost Everyone’s Favorite: The Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser
  5. Set it Lastly, I do go in with a powder but must I say very lightly cause that’s just me I feel I use the word light to much in my makeup talks so just to put it out there so yeah the powder helps everything to set and prevent lines and creasing throughout the day. Currently I use the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

 

That’s all loves, it’s that simple and quick, well it’s has to be for my everyday routine but it’s working well for me to the point that I’m actually wearing my concealer now. Give it a try and see what it does for you OR leave your personal cake free under-eye concealer tips/routine/whatever you do for a flawless concealer application because I can use those and I’m sure other’s will appreciate them as well, sharing is caring 🙂

THANK YOU FOR READING!

Stay Beautiful!
