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.

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.

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)

Sephora Play Box: January 2017

H-E-L-L-O my beautiful people, how are you? Hope you had an amazing day or starting an amazing day. I’m so excited to be back with another blog post for you all today and I’m sure this one is about to make you excited as well because it’s the UNBOXING of our most adored Sephora Play Box subscription. I’ve seen a lot of your unboxing already and likely mine was a little behind but I rushed to put it up as soon as I got the box so give it a scroll, maybe a like and share it with others who might enjoy it.

Let’s Get Right Into It!

BEAUTY, SET, GO! 

Now that is the theme of this year’s first box and I have to say the creativity of these monthly themes always gets to me I live for these things plus I think as if this box was designed just for me I’m serious it coordinates so well with my major fitness goals and vibes. I mean just take a look at the bag and you’ll see what I mean… 

So What Do We Have In Our Cute Bag This Month… 
Some pretty cool things I would say!

Oh! did I even tell you that I did not take a peek at the box for the first time until it actually arrived at my doorsteps maybe that’s why it was so much fun, I should do that more often.

A Tarte FRXXXTION Stick 

It’s a gel cleanser but in a twist -up stick format and goes from a gel form to a cleansing lather to gently wash away all impurities from your skin. It’s also something I really wanted to try so ‘thank you’ to Sephora for throwing it in this month’s box, I’ll definitely let you guys know how I like this.

Oh, and do you know why, do you know why they threw it in this months box well it’s compact stick that turns to cleanser which is perfect for the gym and also like traveling and stuff duh that makes sense 🙂

A Youth To The People Kale + Spinach + Hyaluronic Acid Age Prevention Cream 

It’s a whipped lightweight cream that helps rejuvenate your skin and delivers antioxidants with potent plant extracts. You read that right, it’s a moisturizer with that has kale, spinach and also green tea, a whole lot of goodness in a small container, it actually felt nice on my skin, I applied like once, just a little but it was good, it sounds good. 

It’s for today’s health conscious beauty lovers uh…sounds like me again this is a 100% vegan skincare line and just like this one here all of the company’s products are created in small amounts in their California lab. Interesting!

A OUAI Treatment Masque

It’s a mask to restore and help care for your damaged hair, will leave your hair strands feeling smooth and soft to the touch. 

It’s created by celebrity stylist Jen Atkin, makes effortless, cool-girl hair a snap, a healthy looking shine and also strengths hair against future damage.

Here’s a PRO Tip from Jen… at the gym or a spa ? use the mask right before you get active, work it into your hair and shampoo later because the heat will help the formula soak in more.

And depending on how dry your hair is you might just use the whole bottle in one treatment.

A Clinique Almost Lipstick In Black Honey

Oh, I see, see now I get it… It’s a SHEER lip color with a glossy finish in a bestselling, cult-classic shade; Black Honey. 

It’s cool because it ‘goes with anything’ just a swipe, no mirrors necessary works for me again makes your lips look fresh and healthy perfect, perfect, this box is just killing it 

Cool Fact: Black Honey was created in 1971 as a color that would suit any skin tone and someone in the U.S. buys a Black Honey lipstick every three minutes. Wow! I knew there was something special about this thing when I saw it hehe 🙂

A AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ 

I like that SPF 50+’ thing I see here. It’s a cushion compact CC cream to hydrate and protect your skin at the same time much needed it gives you a build-able coverage that’s weightless in two bendable shades.

It’s one of Seoul’s most popular luxury beauty brand, innovative, skin-soothing complexion formulas are the thing for keeping your skin moisturized and looking it’s best. I’m ‘excited’ to try this 🙂

This is how you should use this baby… take the blue side of the sponge that comes with this and dip it into either of the cushions. Gently dab/tap all across your face and blend with the sponge. And if you have darker under eyes with a darker skin tone you can use the 104 TAN shade to brighten that up OR if you have a lighter skin tone, you use the 106 ALMOND shade to slightly contour your cheekbones. LOVELY!!!

OMG you guys this thing is AMAZING, I fell in love with it at the very first dab 🙂 🙂 You have to try it out! Super nice to my skin!

A Tory Burch Love Relentlessly Perfume 

Feminine and tender featuring notes of pink pepper, orris, and patchouli.

How sweet… this perfume is inspired by Tory Burch’s favorite romantic couple; her parents. And… wait till you hear this, the perfumes name is ‘actually’ from a love note her father wrote to her mother.

The Blend: Floral family with top pink pepper note, middle orris root and base patchouli

E.L.F. Contouring Blush&Bronzing Powder Palette Review 

 

Hiii… at the moment I am super excited because today has to be my ‘best’ day for views ever 🙂  yikes I can not tell you how statisfiying it is to see people appreciate the things you do out of pure interest and to be honest while starting a blog, I did not for once imagine that it would become a place of such interaction for me now I know ‘exactly’ what those bloggers/youtubers mean when they say all those things hehe like “their followers are everything” AND NOW… that I’ve gotten my dose of chit chat, let’s move on to today’s review.

The reason why I choose to write a review about this product is… because well, first of all, I have used it so much everyday, second of all, I loved it 🙂 and third of all, it is inexpensive. Good enough? I think so, into the details ↓

e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder Price: $4.00, 3 Shades: TURKS & CAICOSFIJI (MATTE), ST. LUCIA

img1471030986052.jpg

As e.l.f Describes it : Create a healthy and natural glow all year long with the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition. This convenient compact has just what you need to achieve a gorgeous glow anytime, anywhere.

What’s Great About It: 

  • It’s their best-seller
  • It’s often compared to the NARS Contour Blush palette ($49)
  • It’s actually a great dupe for the NARS palette even looks the same 
  • It’s pigmented, easy to blend
  • It’s NOT expensive 🙂
  • It’s the perfect everyday contour palette
  • Reviewed by many youtubers 🙂

When I first got this I didn’t see myself liking it ‘too’ much but when I gave it a second go using the right brush and all I fell in love with it and have been using it ever since as you can tell by the looking at the palette I’ve used up most of the lighter shade compared to the darker one well that’s because I figured the ‘contour’ color was a bit too strong for my liking or to be specific for everyday use, I personally prefer the bronzer color to contour my face everyday and it helps me achieve that perfect natural looking sculpted face. Another thing about these were that they were ‘not’ matte, which to be honest was not really a problem for me, though, in the beginning I wasn’t sure of the shimmer but it’s not too obvious once applied HOWEVER, if you don’t want even the slightest of shimmer, they got you covered with the new all-matte in FIJI by the way I have the one in TURKS & CAICOS.

img1471030735486.jpg

img1471030810969.jpg

Got ‘Turks & Caicos’ because I wanted to be able to use both of the shades to just contour 

img1471018803367.jpg

Here’s how both of the colors look on my skin… can you see why I use the blush color so much 🙂 the colors do look a little differ once swatched

And I think that’s about it, in my opinion there’s nothing bad about this palette, other than the fact that it wasn’t matte which is already taken care of hehe all in all ‘thumbs up’ 4 stars ? or all 5 stars ? how about 5 stars 🙂 and I say that you also give it a try if you haven’t… totally worth it.

Leave me your thoughts, questions, and whatever it is that you have to say about this product in the comments below, see you all next time.

I gave them a try and loved the results I got, I used the flat brush to apply my foundation and it blended away like a dream (moment of happiness) hehe I also used two of the smaller brushes for eyeshadows, flat one to blend the shadow on my lid and the other to add color to my crease, I got the smoothest most quickest makeup application with these brushes.
