OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS EYE CREAM WITH TOUCH OF CONCEALER

Hey guys! I feel like I have been slacking off with the blog but I am back to review and provide you guys swatches of this cool product. The product I have here is Olay’s total effects eye cream with a touch of concealer. It doesn’t have a shade on this because it claims to be a skin adaptive colour. This product kind of reminds me of the smart shade products from Almay or a BB cream because of their skin care and make up properties. I find that all Olay products are on the pricey side in drugstores so lets see if this product is worth the money.

This eye cream with a touch of concealer claims to be a hydrating eye cream with colour that adapts to most common skin tones.

OLAY EYE CREAM WITH TOUCH OF CONCEALER

 

This product contains 15ml of product and it comes in a simply squeeze tube container with a tiny opening for the product to come out of. This makes the product more sanitary unlike the eye creams in pots and the product wont come out in huge amounts because of the small opening.

OLAY EYE CREAM WITH TOUCH OF CONCEALER SWATCH OLAY EYE CREAM WITH TOUCH OF CONCEALER SWATCH

It instructs you gently apply with your ring finger to the under eye skin. As you all know, that is the common way to apply your eye cream. In the swatch photos, I accidentally squeezed out too much product. The first photo is a more accurate photo of what the colour looks like and the second photo shows it a bit more orangey.

OLAY EYE CREAM WITH TOUCH OF CONCEALER SWATCH

This product has a slight orange undertone as you can see in the photo when blended out. I don’t know if it is because of the “skin adaptive colour” part or if it is actually like that, but when I apply this under my eye it isn’t orange to me or I just don’t notice it as well. This product gives a light coverage but it can build up to a medium coverage but by the time it builds up it feels like a thick eye cream. This has a consistency of an average eye cream but it isn’t hydrating at all. Maybe it will work for some of you but I have really dry under eyes. Aside from the fact that it doesn’t hydrate my under eyes that well and that it doesn’t have my preferred coverage, the positive side about this product is that it is really easy to blend.

That’s all I have to say about this product! Hope you guys all enjoyed this review! πŸ™‚

WOULD I REPURCHASE? No, I think that it would be a waste of time for me to build up the coverage to my liking and making it feel like a thick eye cream that I’d wear to sleep. Also, Olay products are pretty expensive.

C+M ANTI-SPOTS AND FRECKLES INTENSIVE WHITENING CREAM

Hey guys! I’m back with a review on the C+M Anti-Spots & Freckles Intensive Whitening Cream with Green Tea extract. I purchased this product from SaSa Cosmetics online.

If you don’t know what SaSa Cosmetics is, it is a company that sells discounted Asian and American brand products for lower than retail prices. It is a Hong Kong based website but they have sites for pretty much anywhere. They even sell miniature sized products for you to test out if you don’t want to splurge on the full size product. Their shipping is quite pricey unless you spend over a certain amount but from time to time, they have special deals such as spend $19 USD and get free shipping. They have plenty of free gifts with purchase of another product and extra discounts. This is a great site if you are wanting to try new things for a great low price and you aren’t able to find them in stores. Disclaimer: I am not being paid or sent free products to advertise SaSa Cosmetics; they don’t even know about this post or maybe even my blog.

C+M ANTISPOTS AND FRECKLES INTENSIVE WHITENING CREAM C+M ANTISPOTS AND FRECKLES INTENSIVE WHITENING CREAM

But back to the review, C+MΒ is a famous French personal and skin care brand with wide range of whitening, suncare, anti allergy, moisturizing, deodorant and ance treatment products. (description taken from SaSa’s C+M page) The prices of their skincare products on SaSa are extremely affordable. I have a few of their products and I find them to be really good products, such as this moisturizer. This product contains 45ml and the container is extremely lightweight. This product is a slightly watery cream product but it isn’t a gel texture. Also, it has a really pleasant, light fragrance to it. I love using this product day and night because it is hydrating but not oily. I got this product on sale for around $5 to $6! Even with the retail price, it isn’t as expensive as many moisturizers at Sephora but definitely try picking this up while it is on sale! I don’t really think that the “Anti-spots and freckles” part is true but it is a non greasy moisturizer that should be suitable for all skin types. As you can see in the image below, I have used up almost all of this product! That should prove how much I like it :)!

C+M ANTISPOTS AND FRECKLES INTENSIVE WHITENING CREAM C+M ANTISPOTS AND FRECKLES INTENSIVE WHITENING CREAM

The product description on SaSa’s website is: An intensive spot whitening cream of new special formulation to contain Green Tea extract with light and non greasy texture, specially formulated with strong natural essential actives: Bearberry (Arbutin) and Vitamin A (Retinol), to inhibit formation of melanin, which simultaneously freckles, blemish, scar marks and lighten dull and yellowish skin tones. Contains Wheat Placenta, a real embryo of plant life with highly energetic actives: hormones, flavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, vitamins and peptides, for stimulation of collagen production and cell renewal to achieve skin against daily environmental aggressions and sun damages. Significant improvement can be seen within 3 weeks of continuous application.

That is pretty much all I have to tell you about this product!

WOULD I REPURCHASE?Β Yes, definitely! When I can catch this on sale again I would probably purchase one or two more!

OPI NAIL POLISH IN “MY VERY FIRST KNOCKWURST”

Here is a swatch for OPI’s “MY VERY FIRST KNOCKWURST” from the Germany Collection that came out awhile back.

OPI NAIL POLISH IN "MY VERY FIRST KNOCKWURST" OPI NAIL POLISH IN "MY VERY FIRST KNOCKWURST"

I would describe it as a nudey, light lavender colour with a hint of pink and grey. It reminds me of the colour “Steady as a She Rose” by OPI, China Glaze’s “Light as Air” and Essie’s “Pilates Hottie” but this one is more grey toned and more nude than them. Having tons of these purple shades to compare this colour to made me not want to pick this up but I did anyways.

OPI NAIL POLISH IN "MY VERY FIRST KNOCKWURST" OPI NAIL POLISH IN "MY VERY FIRST KNOCKWURST"

There are two coats of this polish on my nails. The polish is actually a bit more purple than what you see in the photo.

Aside from that, hope you guys enjoyed this swatch post and stay tuned for more blog posts!

SMASHBOX JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER IN BRONZE SWATCHES AND REVIEW

Hello everyone, here is my review and swatches post for the Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Bronze. It claims to be a waterproof, crease-resistant eye liner that glides on flawlessly with the Arced Eyeliner Brush #21. You may have seen this product in my haul. As I stated in the haul, I got this product in the sale section at Sephora for $13.50 + tax. They had navy, purple, and one more bronze left. If you are interested in getting this product on sale you should head to a Sephora near you to see if there are any in stock. On the Sephora website, this product is $25 CAD + tax. So the price that I got this product for is almost half price!

SMASHBOX JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER IN BRONZE SMASHBOX JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER IN BRONZE SMASHBOX JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER IN BRONZE

This product has a lot of great reviews on Sephora’s website which made me want t try this product. I didn’t want to spend $25 on this product so I just never decided to pick this up; but when I saw this for almost half the price, I had to. This colour grabbed my attention right away because I love brown or bronzey shades for eye shadows and eyeliners.

SMASHBOX JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER IN BRONZE SWATCH

I have extremely oily eyelids that grease up within seconds. Most of my eyeliners do not stay on my eyelid for more than an hour. Also because I have watery eyes which ruin my eye makeup most of the time. Usually, when I wear powder eyeshadow, my eye make up stays on very well.Β  I think that the lasting power on this product is pretty good but I’ve never tried crying or going in water with this eyeliner on. I have tried on the back of my hand though. With water running on it for a minute, there is no smudging at all; but, when I rub it with a lot of strength, the product starts to fade off.

SMASHBOX JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER IN BRONZE SWATCH

If you have a problem with this product being like that, I recommend that you get a shade that you would wear as an eyeshadow. When this product starts to fade or smudge a little, it would look like a pigmented eye shadow or it will just looked like a smudged out eye liner.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this swatch and review post! Please visit back soon for more posts and have a great New Years!

OPI LIQUID SAND NAIL POLISH IN “THE IMPOSSIBLE”

Here is another swatch post on my blog, but this time it’s on a nail polish. This nail polish is from the OPI x Mariah Carey line.

OPI LIQUID SAND THE IMPOSSIBLE OPI THE IMPOSSIBLE

They’ve created a new texture called Liquid Sand and it is suppose to dry to a textured matte finish infused with reflective glints of light. The instructions tell you to apply a base coat, then two coats of this polish, but you do know apply a top coat. The texture of this polish is like finely milled sand, this nail polish isn’t like chunky glitter polishes. This nail colour is kind of like a pink-ish, red-ish, fuchsia colour that contains silver glitters and stars.

CLOSE UP OF OPI THE IMPOSSIBLE

I was scared that this polish would chip easily without a top coat but I was wrong. It lasts quite a long time, but sadly I didn’t keep the colour long enough for a proof photo. But here are the swatches of this nail polish:

OPI THE IMPOSSIBLE SWATCH OPI THE IMPOSSIBLE SWATCH

I don’t know why but the camera captured my pinky to look kind of strange, so please ignore that. Anyways that’s it for now!

HAUL: SEPHORA, BATH AND BODY WORKS & OPI

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great Christmas holiday and had fun at your New Years Eve parties. I was suppose to have this blog post up a few days ago but never got the chance to. So here is what I’ve recently purchased:

BATH AND BODY WORKS CANDLES SEPHORA AND OPI

I went to Bath and Body Works the day after Boxing Day and got these two candles for $3.13 each + tax! These candles retail for $12.50 each but they were 75% off. They had tons of these medium size candles for sale but these were the two I picked up. They also had the 3-wick candles on sale but none of those scents interested me and those were only 50% off. I’m not sure if these deals are still on but you should head to your closest Bath and Body Works to check it out!

As for the Sephora and OPI haul, I went into Sephora just to look around and check out the sale section and I found the Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Bronze on sale for $13.50 + tax. They also had it in the colour navy and purple but the bronze was the last one and the only one that grabbed my attention. Later, when I got home I checked if the Sephora website had it on sale but apparently these shades were new and still original price– which is $25 CAD + tax. This eyeliner was almost half off! What a steal. I’m not sure what the problem was with these liners but I found them to be normal. I will have a review and swatch linked here for you guys.

When I went to check out, the cashier gave me a few samples (and I’ve linked the full sized products from Sephora):

Glam Glow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask

ALGENIST CONCENTRATED RECONSTRUCTING SERUM ALGENIST CONCENTRATED RECONSTRUCTING SERUM

SHISEIDO BIOPERFORMANCESHISEIDO BIOPERFORMANCE
Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum

If you guys are interested in reviews on these products, please let me know before I use them up! πŸ™‚

I’ve also got one of the new polishes from OPI’s new collection OPI x Mariah Carey. I got the OPI Liquid Sand in The Impossible because I thought that it looked pretty cool and kind of festive, even though it is a bit too late. I will have swatches for this product here.

HAUL: EBAY JEWELRY

I’ve recently purchased rings from www.ebay.ca and I wanted to show you what I got. So here they are:

EBAY BOW RING EBAY BOW RING EBAY BOW RING

This bow one is simple and cute. It is also adjustable, I wish it wasn’t because it is just a tiny bit loose on me. I usually wear size 6-7 for Forever 21 rings.

EBAY DAISY RING EBAY DAISY RING

I expected this ring to look better. I thought that the daisy would be a circle not an obvious oval shape. I think this is still cute but not the way I’d like it to be.

EBAY LEAVES RING EBAY LEAVES RING

And here is the last ring that I bought. It is a simple leaf wrap ring. It is my favorite out of all three that I’ve purchased in this haul. Somehow, it makes my hand look less dull and more brighter.

All of these rings were about $1-$2; so, even with some flaws, they were worth it.
Thanks for stopping by again, and hope to see you all soon! Bye! πŸ™‚

$1.80 LOVE & BEAUTY BY FOREVER 21 EYESHADOW BLOCK

Hi everyone, this is my first swatch and makeup review… hope you all enjoy! I will be showing you guys the Love & Beauty by Forever 21 Eyeshadow Block. I got this awhile ago and regret not buying every shade and back ups. Forever 21 rarely restocks on products after they are sold out so you should always stock up on them while you’re at it. This was ONLY $1.80!!!

DSC08166 DSC08167DSC08173

If you can tell, I kind of scraped the eyeshadow a bit. You have to careful when you open this because your finger might slide in and your nail will scratch the product. In the beginning, I only bought this because I thought it was cute and because I needed to add up to $60 to get free shipping. I’ve seen other shades in stores but never decided to pick it up until after I was done using some of my makeup products up. I regretted it so much after because NOW I know that they will never restock. But, if they do, I will stock up like crazy. These shadows feel like something you would purchase for $20-$50 at Sephora or MAC. The texture of these shadows remind me of the Urban Decay shadows. The only con to this is that the darker shades are not that pigmented but luckily, you can build it up. Here are the swatches of the $1.80 palette:

DSC08174DSC08181

I ADORE these eyeshadows and the colours. I hope that they will be restocking on them soon or before I run out. I always apply these shadows with my fingers because it is so easy to work with and I am too lazy to wash my brushes anyways.To wrap this up…
WOULD I REPURCHASE? Yes!!! I will need to stock up on these when I get the chance to and buy every shade if possible!

Anyways, that’s enough raving about this awesome palette. Hope you guys can find this at your local Forever 21. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! PLEASE HEAD TO MY FACEBOOK PAGE AND “LIKE” IT, THANK YOU!

COSLINE STRAWBERRY YOGURT PACK

I’m back again for another review! This time it is the Cosline Strawberry Yogurt Pack. Sounds yummy right? It smells delicious… but I’m too scared to taste it :(. I purchased this product from Sasa when I was in Hong Kong for 39HKD, which is about $5-$7CAD or USD. You get 170ml of product for just $5 to $7!Β  This product is also available for sale on Sasa Online for $13.80 but its on sale for $6.10, that’s 56% off! Cosline actually has a variety of these packs at Sasa and many other websites. Cosline is actually one of Etude House’s sister brands, so if you are able to find Cosline on a website, you will probably find Etude there.

COSLINE STRAWBERRY YOGURT PACK COSLINE STRAWBERRY YOGURT PACK

This product expires three years after the date printed on the pack– which is the date it was made. This Strawberry Yogurt Pack is a supplement of Vitamin C to make your skin clean and fresh. On the Sasa website, the product description says COSLINE Yogurt Strawberry Yogurt Pack is a wash off mask which contains strawberry extract (850g), yogurt (170mg) and Vitamin C and E. COSLINE Yogurt Strawberry Yogurt Pack promotes metabolism rate of skin, smoothes skin and increases skin brightness. The nourishing COSLINE Yogurt Strawberry Yogurt Pack also helps to keep skin elastic and moisturized.

COSLINE STRAWBERRY YOGURT PACK

I used this products many times and yet I have more than half a jar left. After I’m done cleansing my face, I apply a generous amount of this strawberry yogurt pack onto my face and leave it on for 15 minutes. After that, I like to play around with the little red beads and squish them on my face until there is a red liquid (kind of looks like blood), then, I massage everything around my face for about 20 seconds and wash it off with warm water.

COSLINE STRAWBERRY YOGURT PACK COSLINE STRAWBERRY YOGURT PACK

After that, my face is as smooth as a baby’s butt. What’s fun about this pack is the squishing the red beads part and the wonderful fruity scent. It actually smells and looks like yogurt you would find in the supermarkets.
WOULD I REPURCHASE? Yes, I think this is a great and fun product. I will probably be trying all the other packs from Cosline too!

Thank you for visiting my blog and hope to see you guys again! πŸ™‚
