First thing is first, a exfoliator KATE SOMERVILLE ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment this is a clinical-strength exfoliator that will gently polishes skin with natural fruit enzymes to reveal a glowing complexion.

Second on my hand is moisturizer PETER THOMAS ROTH Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream yes, it’s lightweight that’s got a airy formula which delivers a burst of hydration with 3 different types of hyaluronic acids. It’s silky and thirst quenching for a deep hydration.

On to Priming this is the SMASHBOX Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer this iconic primer creates the perfect canvas for your makeup application, will leave the skin super soft and silky feeling.

What comes after primer, eyeliner in this case MAKE UP FOREVER Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner loved by makeup professionals, a creamy, budge-proof eyeliner glides one easily and leaves an intense, jet-black color. I need to give this a try, sounds promising20170329165243_IMG_1033.png

It would make sense now to bring in the SEPHORA COLLECTION Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover now this is your go – to waterproof makeup remover thats perfect for your sensitive eyes, oh and it’s enriched with strengthening vitamins and extracts.

Smitten… (February Sephora Play Unboxing)

Happy Wednesday, And Now It’s Friday so HAPPY FRIDAY!

(And this let’s you know exactly how late this post is, but I had internet problems okay, Valid reason this time.

Were you smitten yesterday? I know was… after I saw this thing oh la la

In the least and most simple words, Sephora came thru this month, the box arrived before the email of it’s shipment huh, would you look at that 

The bag was smitten and the products were worth the hype, this box was a good combination of products, and and… wait for it… there were ‘two’ lip products this time.

Lets have a look, but first I just wanted to say that I decided on something about these monthly unboxing (so far I only have one 🙂 but anyways, I was going to say that I’ve decided to create brand new series on the blog, where I can share, review, and just talk about all the samples because I found myself using some of samples from the day I got them and love them so much so I have to share it with you. Which simply means these unboxing’s will be quite simple and short, so enjoy it!

The Partygoers : Meet Your Night Out Necessities 

This ready to party play box has been sitting on my desk waiting to be revealed so let go…

December is another way of saying let’s celebrate and of course Sephora was all about catching those vibes this month and throwing them into this cute little package that screams let’s party. I love the color scheme of this month’s box.

Here’s what’s inside the box:

Bobbi Brown SMOKEY EYE MASCARA  a jet-black, kohl-pigmented mascara delivers high-impact volume with a smudge-free formula. It’s the life of the party because it will enhance any look by adding volume to each and every one of your lash without clumping them.

Urban Decay ALL NIGHTER MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY  it’s weightless and prevents makeup from fading, smudging, and settling into fine lines, no needs for touch-ups. It’s the life of the party because it’s dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic but at the same time powerful enough to keep makeup fresh for up to 16 hours regardless of skin type. 

Makeup Forever STEP 1 SKIN EQUALIZER SMOOTHING PRIMER  it helps makeup last longer with a formula that balances skin’s texture to give you a smoother and more even look. It’s the life of the party because it’s made up of complexion perfecting and radiance-enhancing formulas, also reducing redness and correcting, so you can mix and match them and find a prep that works best for you.

Sephora Collection CREAM LIP STAIN IN ALWAYS RED  a decadent yet lightweight stain moisturizes while saturating your lips with a bold, nonstop color of red. it’s the life of the party because it’s the bestselling red that’s smooth and made from hydrating avocado and vitamin E oil.

Elizabeth And James NIRVANA BOURBON  a intoxicating blend of vanilla bourbon and spice wood with a delicate floral note. The blend includes a warm and spicy fragrance family, top notes; vanilla bourbon, middle notes; tuberose, base notes; oak and spice woods. 

And That’s Everything

Who’s Ready For Another Unboxing ?

Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening wherever you lovely people are. Yes, I am posting two days in a row, I know wow! These days off I’m taking full advantage of the time I have to get some of the stuff on my mind on up on the blog, I still have a lot of school work that I’m putting off because damn I needed a mini getaway, what’s better than blogging 🙂 ok, rambling stops now.

And the unboxing begins, this one is skincare because I’ve been into skincare recently so I whatever I got ended up being skincare related, and hey what’s more important than skincare, makeup comes after ok! You might not know this, but I often just opted for natural remedies/dIY’s for skincare when I started the blog with some skincare products from brands (mostly Clinique) yes, they are like my ‘first’ brand 🙂 and I keep going back for some reason, and that is why you’ll be seeing an unboxing from the brand today. So… I have tried, attempted to record an unboxing video today, don’t judge me okay! 

Clinique Sonic System  

Retails For: $89.50

In Clinique’s Words; Innovative sonic facial cleansing brush that works with your cleanser to create your greatest skin ever. Dermatologist-developed and Swiss-engineered. Waterproof. For all Skin Types.

Meet our new skin-changer:

  • Sonic movement offers deep yet gentle cleansing.
  • Angled tip targets T-Zone and other hard to reach areas.
  • Gently lifts the makeup, dirt and oil hand washing may miss.
  • Makes 3-Step routine more effective.
  • 2-year warranty.

I knew wanted or I should say ‘needed’ a facial cleansing system to deeply clean my skin, I can’t even begin to tell you how annoying and bothersome my skin has been these past couple of months, nothing seemed to make it better, whatever I do only lasts for a like a day so I decided to give this sonic system from Clinique a try and so happy to have bought this cute limited edition design rather than a plain white one 🙂 Here’s a little video I put together for you of the unboxing, let me know how I did and forgive me if I don’t live up to your expectations my lovelies. ↓↓↓

 

P.S.  This note would not be here in the first place if this blog had went up when I had planned it, HOWEVER, I failed sigh and it was a mess. Now ‘why’ you ask, well I had originally recored or tried to record a unboxing video for you guys in this post and also edited that video to my best potential but…  now you can probably guess what happened; well that video just wouldn’t download from iMovie (error -50) but don’t worry I still included a ‘unboxing’ video but I would love it if someone could leave me some tips on using editing apps, thanks lovelies 🙂 xo

Also, this blog is overdue for almost a month, forgive me 🙂

Until Next Time,

Second Play Box and Keeps getting Better!

Hey there lovelies, if you haven’t seen the post before this, It’s Right Here feel free to check it out and if you don’t no worries, you’re not missing out. As you know this is the unboxing of my Sephora PlayBox for the month of November, the box came super early, exactly on the 19th, as badly as I wanted to share it with you that day truth is I wasn’t able to, so I’m doing the unboxing for you today, and since I’ve had it for a while I already tried one of the products aka one I was dieing to try 😀

This Month’s Theme: BEST IN GLOW meet your partners in shine

This was like my type of a box ALL ABOUT THAT GLOW. Sephora says “it’s love at first bright: bypass winter dullness and wake your skin up with this month’s lustrous lineup of glem-getting, radiance-ready beauty. There’s providing highlights with an ultra-shiny lip gel, refreshing face mask (needed), and other illuminating skincare and makeup essentials.

Your Play Pass Here 

Let’s Find out What Those Essentials  Are :


COVER FX ILLUMINATING PRIMER glow inducing, silicone-free primer to prep the skin with a light-reflective mineral and helps eliminate dullness. These are your go-to for sensitive skin, packed with vitamin rich ingredients. Just apply a small amount onto your skin before makeup and blend with your fingers or brush.

THE ESTEE EDIT BY ESTEE LAUDER DISSOLVE THE DRAMA  a 2-in-1 makeup remover and oil cleanser. Transforms from silky oil to a milky foam that leaves skin fresh and luminous. All botanicals, it gives a glow by shooting and conditioning your skin with aloe vera, jojoba oil, and of course cucumber extract. Apply to dry skin first then add some water to create that milky foam cleanser.

LAURA MERCIER CAVIAR STICK EYE COLOUR IN ROSE GOLD a multipurpose, highly pigmented eyeshadow stick that glides and blends easily for transfer-proof, and all-day wear. Laura is all about luxurious, high-performing products. This award-winner can be applied as a eyeliner lightly over the lash line or apply multiple layers to build crease-resistant glimmer, or apply it as highlighter to your cheekbones.

SEPHORA COLLECTION ULTRA SHINE LIP GEL IN PIN UP PINK it’s a hydrating glossy lip gel that visibly plumps lips with lustrous sheen and flattering hot pink hue. I have to say something about this; (first of all, I have not used a lip gloss like since in years I mean years, but I’ve received two already from Sephora and this one is NICE, meaning it’s not sticky) It was inspired by the luxe,lacquered finish of gel nail polishes, head turning formula, more than a glisten shine, gives fuller looking lips, wear it however you like.

I promise this was more pink on my lips than it looks in this picture 💋

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD CLEARING TREATMENT  (yes, this is what I tried, and I was so happy to receive one this month, came in at the perfect time when my skin needed some special cleansing 🙂 it’s wonderful, left my skin clean, so smooth and fresh.) It’s a skin-clearing mud mask with activated charcoal draws out dirt and impurities while  it also brightens and softens. A red carpet original, did you know; the first glamglow masks were handpicked by the co founders and sent to high-profile actors and actresses in unmarked containers and they quickly became hollywood’s favorite. But you also know, they are P-R-I-C-E-Y.

PRO-TIP! keep breakouts under control by dabbing on SUPERMUD as a 15-min spot treatment. And normally you could use this all over face as often you prefer, recommend is 3 times a week and you have to leave it on for 10-20 mins.

STELLA MCCARTNEY POP Lastly we have the fragrance sample  this is a celebration of self-expression and independence, bold, contemporary scent layers bright floral notes over a base of sandalwood.

Fragrance family: Floral and woody

Top notes: Tomato leaf, violet leaf, green mandarin

Middle notes: Frangipani, tuberose, violet

Base notes: Sandalwood, musk, cedar

If you need more info on this month’s box or looking to subscribe you can do so by clicking the link above in my intro.

The only thing is that most of items (like the more expensive ones I guess) are really small so that’s about it, I just wanted to put that out there since they do appear bigger, what else? oh and sorry if the lighting isn’t the best.Other than that hope you enjoyed this month’s unboxing.

Are you subscribed to the PlayBox ? What did you receive this month? I’m curious to find out so comment below 🙂

First PlayBox :)

Helloo my lovelies, Yes I’m back and this time not with some random post but rather a beauty unboxing which are alwayss exciting hehe recently I haven’t been able to blog regularly, which to be honest is making me mad to some extent. Maybe because this was something I found to be relaxing plus it made me happy and nowadays I find myself more stressed out again which isn’t a good thing. Anyways, before you run away I’m going to stop rambling. So here goes, my very ‘first’ PlayBox  by Sephora. Let me just say I’m more than happy 🙂 that I got onto this subscription. Lot of you are already familiar with the play box so I’m going to skip the usual intro but I’ll leave the link in case you ‘aren’t’ familiar with it. Fair enough?

The Theme For October is:  THE COOL CUT ~ The next big things!

Things to watch and uncover, products that truly stand out from the crowd. Try these routine-changing skincare and hair innovations, a coveted liquid lipstick and other of the moment must-haves.

img1477420024455.jpg

img1477419903404.jpg

img1477419991158.jpg

The Products For This Month are:

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick (Full-Size $24)

It’s a matte liquid lipstick designed to last up to 8 hours,water resistance and a non-feathering formula.

img1477170550387.jpg

Sephora loves Smashbox because their products are tested under bright lights and long photoshoots since Smashbox is not just a beauty brand but also legendary photography studios of LA.

It has a special triangular shaped applicator for easy precise application, just dab off the excess product, outline with the tip and fill them in with the larger end.

img1477170616906.jpg

It feels great on the lips and it is very long lasting, I just made sure my lips had some lip balm before I applied the lipstick, so it doesn’t crack or over dry my lips.

The Estée Edit Flash Photo Gloss (Full-Size $20)

This is suppose to be innovative and high-shine gloss that has blue undertones that will make your teeth appear bright in selfies.

It is from Estee Lauder’s guest editor line of makeup and skincare. It’s clear so you can wear it alone or over your lipstick, it’s nice but was a bit sticky, I don’t wear lipglosses anymore and honestly if I was to buy this myself, I wouldn’t.

img1477170407603.jpg

Oh, and don’t worry no dyes are used in this, and it has a nice scent, contains iridescent cool blue pearl, which creates the illusion of whiter lips.

Erborian Bamboo Crème Frappée Skin Reviving Fresh Gel (Full-Size $43)

A deeply moisturizing gel cream with frost, whipped texture so sinks effortlessly into skin to revive and refresh. Sounds so good, I’m excited about this… but have yet to try it.

So this fuses innovative Korean skincare with luxurious French scents aww! It’s a combination that is unique to Erborian,  which is the joint venture of a Korean cosmetic scientist and a beauty expert from Europe wow!

img1477170736353.jpg

It’s great for a makeup base.

It uses Bamboo sap; rich in amino acids to hydrate and Bamboo fiber; proteins and lipids to maintain moisture

It just sounds so satisfying!

 Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist & Setting Spray (Full-Size $44)

This is a facial mist to freshen your skin, set makeup, and add moisture for a smooth skin.

You just spray it on whenever you feel you could use some, be it in the morning right after makeup, during makeup or middle of the day when our face starts to get dull.

img1477170681227.jpg

Sephora loves this brand Farmacy for their plant-powered formulas that combine fresh botanicals with the latest scientific advances. It’s based in the framing communities upstate New York, thought you might like to know 🙂

I’m loving this description but sorry to break it to you I have not tried this yet, not even once but as soon as I do I’ll let you in on it.

Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Full-Size $71)

A hair product… yass!  It is a sumptuous and full of antioxidants, this conditioning hair mask strengthens strands while enhancing color and shine. Oh la la… I think this is gonna be something (a treat) for my poor hair, definitely super excited about this, and you ‘know’ what it’s a nice size, not too small 🙂  

img1477170814898.jpg

Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris (Full-Size $92)

Now we have our bonus… the perfume sample that comes in each box. How great is that? I think it’s amazing ‘seriously’ that they throw in a perfume sample besides their 5 products, lovely! and also helpful in a way. 

So this month’s pick is one that’s inspired by a love for the sophistication and allure of Paris, the scent layers a fruity and floral notes over a musky base. Sounds like something you would prefer? Maybe you found your next favorite 🙂

Here’s the blend in case you’re wondering, it’s fruity-floral, and it’s top notes are Bergamot,pear,raspberry,strawberry. The middle notes are White datura, jasmine, citrus blossom. Base notes are musk, patchouli, ambroxan

img1477420743612.jpg

 And that my friends is the end of this unboxing and this blog, this was fun to do, hope you enjoy it and ‘if’ you don’t please do let me know what I can do differently in my unboxings to make them more appealing. On a real note, I’m super happy with this subscription; seems like it’ll be my monthly dose of excitement that I love love to share with you all. I know this one went up later than I wanted it to be up but hey it’s here now so enjoy!
