Makeup Revolution The One Sticks ~ Blush, Highlight, Contour




Ah Makeup Revolution you simply amaze me with all your products. 
I recently got my hands on The One sticks. I have 4 but I am pretty sure there is more. 
The sticks come in a black plastic stick that is either matte or glossy they reflect a finish product hidden inside. The packaging kinda reminds me of  NARS Multiples but these ones are way cheaper :)
Sucks that I can't compare  them , sadly I don't own any NARS sticks. 

I have two matte The One Blush Sticks, The One Highlight Stick and The One Sculpt Stick.



The One Blush stick Matte Rush ~ bright, matte coral shade. This is such a beautiful Summer shade. I guess any coral shade is prefect for summer. matte Rush looks gorgeous on the lips and on the cheeks. It is intensely pigmented and gives amazing color payoff. I am personally not a big fun of corals but this one if applies light handed and blended looks beautiful. So before summer ends I better get more use out of it.

The one Blush Stick Matte Malibu ~ orangy brown shade, almost terracotta. as much as I love this color it is not for me. I tried to contour with it but it was too warm and too orangy on me. I bet it would look great on darker skin gals. Again the color pay off on this one is amazing. I still am trying to get use out of it. I do apply it lightly and blend with blending sponge. Some say that this a dupe for NARS Laguna, the only think is that this pulls more to orange side then Laguna that pulls more to brown side. 



The One Highlight Contour Stick ~ this is such a pretty highlight shade. As you know me I love highlighters! I more of a powder fan but hey I can still make a cream work too!. This one is beige based with enough shimmer to add glow to my complexion. It does feel a little slippery whenever your swatch it on the face or hand. I like it coz it is easy to blend plus I add a powder highlight on top of as well. The glow then is insane. It does contain tiny shimmers that I love! ;) There is many ways to apply this little guy. I used my fingers and I alies straight form the stick and then blended. Both ways worked fine for me. 

The One Sculpt Contour Stick ~ This is definitely my kind of contour shade coz it is on a cooler side. I don't apply too much , just a tiny bit and then blend (stippling brush or BB). I like how it look on my fair skin tone. Again pigmentation is awesome so if you a light skin you need just tiny bit. Don't over do it ! I like it more then Matte Malibu. 

Overall i am really impressed with The One sticks. They are creamy, they blend nice, color payoff is amazing. They retail for $9 on MUR USA website and ULTA.

The Concealer Game Strong with Osmosis Skin Care and Amazing Cosmetics




Let's talk concealer today. I have in total of 4 new concealer to share with you but today I will show you two. 
Osmosis Colour Age defying Treatment Concealer and Amazing Cosmetics Corrector.
Both were my go to for last week and both I came to cherish. 

Osmosis Colour Age defying Treatment Concealer is amazing. Not only it provides a great coverage but also will help you hydrate and soften fine lines around your eyes. This concealer as you can tell is dual ended. One side have a concealer and other moisturizing stick. So this concealer I apply before foundation.



 I use the moisturizing stick first and then I go over with a concealer. That moisturizing stick just as the name suggest it will moisturize / hydrate your under eye area. It contains nourishing ingredients like argan oil, coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E. It does have a tiny scent to it, for me it smells like a lemon :) Not overpowering but very pleasant.



Concealer itself is really good. The pigmentation is amazing. blends really good and there is no scent to it. I apply under my eyes, bridge of my nose, around my nose and forehead. I use a damp blender to blend. The consistency is creamy and thick, but at the same time once you blend is weightless. It gives  a flawless look and covers dark circles and blemishes. Lasted all day once I set it with a powder. Didn;t notice any creasing or setting in a fine lines.
I have my in a shade fair and it is a perfect match :)

You can purchase it here: Osmosis Web and Beauty Store
Price: $38,$33

 


Second concealer I have is by Amazing Cosmetics.  Amazing Corrector was a new release for Spring 2016 and it was gone before you knew it. Color correction is so on trend right now. Everyone is making a color corrector concealers , singles or in a palettes. Amazing Cosmetics made a dual sided correction. Which is awesome coz you can get two shades. Other companies made one tube for each color... So yeah thumbs up for AC for making my life easier and save me some $$$.
 First thing first, AC came out with three correctors:
* Fair/Light (light orange/green) this is the one I have
* Light/Medium (Yellow/Orange) most popular one
* Medium/ Deep (red orange/dark orange)



As I mention before and well you can see it on the picture, AC corrector comes with two shades. 
It is formulated with:
* Vitamin E
* cucumber extract fruit to depuff and soften
*sodium hyaluronate to maintain moisture
* ceramide NP to repair skin



I choose the one with green coz of my blemishes. The formula on both sides is creamy,lightweight and blends really good and it gives a natural finish.
Using both sides helped me hide acne and blemishes viable on my face. The concealer stay all day without a budge.

The only thing I am not happy s the brush on the green side. It came damaged. As you can see the bristles are all over and it gives me a hard time to apply and ten put it back in coz each time they get even worst. The applicator on the other side is perfect and applies concealer really good.
Overall Amazing Cosmetics Corrector and other concealers are amazing. They are my go to coz I know they will never disappoint me.



This Corrector is available at ULTA,Sephora and AC Web
Price $ 29

All day curls with Madam CJ Walker and White Sands

*pr sample*



Hello there!

Yes another post on hair care. Are you bored already? No then keep on reading and find out how I keep my hair curly all day. 
Summer is ending and I will go back to my usual hair style , which is straight hair. Summer time i rarely use hot tools that is why most of the time my hair is wavy/curly. I like to air dry. 
But well my curls don't last too long. by the end of the day you can see how  dull they look. 
I found solution in two products I been recently send. 
Madam CJ Walker Defining Butter Creme and White Sands Infinity Finishing Spray.




Madam CJ Walker Defining Butter creme is created for more curlier hair then my, but somehow it did worked well. Rich formula absorbs quickly and seals in moisture. Jamaican Castor oil moisturize and revitalizes hair and scalp. Murumuru oil makes hair manageable and soft. I actually like my hair after. They felt soft and curls were fine. plus it kept my hair frizz free (big thumbs up for that). I used it on damp hair and then  like I mention before I let it air dry. I was happy with the look of the curls :) Overall Madam CJ walker products are great for when I need my hair curly. If you have a really curly/coily hair try this! you will be happy with the results and the look of your hair. Plus it smells good! It have a notes of amber and musk and I been loving it.



To keep my curls curly all day I went over with White Sands Infinity Finishing  Spray.  what i like about it is that is not sticky like all other sprays. Don't you just hate that? this spray is truly awesome . im not a big on spray, coz I find them leaving my hair plastic looking and you know they are really sticky! I hate hate hate when my hair feels like that. I didn't notice anything like that with white Sands Infinity spray. it hold my curls in place the whole day, it did control the frizz and it did make my hair looking shiny. Gives firm hold but I can still run my fingers or brush run thru my hair.Hands down the best hair spray out there! Thanks White Sands for sending it to me and making me addicted ! Plus it does have a nice scent to it :) 
I am definitely adding hair spray to my hair routine. 

Products can be find here;
Madam CJ Walker -> Sephora (stores and online) price $26
White Sands Spray -> online , price $22


Recent Beauty Favorites



I didn't post my monthly favorites in like forever. So I decided to do a roundup of some of my most loved products n past few months. 
I will try to keep this post not too long but we will see LOL there is a few things that I been loving.
So without me talking to much lets just jump in.

Starting Makeup Products:




Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick "Rapture" ~ the lipsticks are already discontinued, right now VICE lipstick took it place. I purchased my on sale for around $12. And I love it! I really need a back up of it. Just hoping that VICE Rapture will be same. This is gorgeous dusty rose shade. Perfect pinky plum :) the wear time is amazing! It can wear up to 5h! I did a touch ups ..hmmm... twice during the day? I really hope the VICE lipsticks are similar to Revolution Lipsticks! I am really impressed with Revolution lipsticks and I wish I could knew of them before they were discontinued.  Next stop I will pick up few VICE and see how they compare to this one.
I like to pair Rapture with Wibo Nude Lips Lip Liner in #3. I got this lip liner from my polish friend and then my mom sent me rest of them. I actually really like Wibo cosmetics, they are polish makeup brand that makes a good stuff. I own few products form them and i been enjoying it so far.

Next lipstick, or should i say liquid lipstick that i been loving is NYX Suede Liquid Lipstick in Soft Spoken.  It is such a  pretty nude shade, perfect mixture of pink and brown. This one was sent to me by my IG friend Ashley :)

swatches: top nyx soft spoken, middle UD rapture, bottom wibo lip liner #3

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation ~ at first I didn't like this foundation. But when I blended out with Wander Beauty Sponge that came with their stick foundation I was in love! This is such a perfect duo! The sponge is soft and blends soooo good! really! I don't own original beauty blender but I belive this one could be a good dupe. The foundation overall is really nice. I like the covarge and that I don't get too oily with it.

Amazing Cosmetics Hydrate and Correcting Concealers  were my go to. On hydrate concealer I did a post few weeks back, you can read it here. Corrector concealer is also one of the my top favorites. It comes with two sides: one is your regular beige color for under eyes or any other place your wish to conceal, and the other side have a green corrector for all you imperfections such as acne or pimple you want to cover it with. I will be posting more in-depth review soon.

As for a bronzer, lately I been loving Fiona Stiles bronzer in shade AHIKO. its cool tone and perfect for soft contour that I like.  I like to apply it with Royal and Langnickel Moda Line Contour brush. Brush fits there perfectly and it works super good! plus the bristles are soft and blend bronzer nicely.



As for highlight I can't put down Makeup revolution Golden Sugar palette #2 . There are 3 shades that I can't live without. In first row 3rd highlight is a dream! plus I been liking the matte blush (first row #4) and the second row first shade is also so pretty. I been using both on and on :)



As for eye makeup. As a base I been loving Mirabella Beauty Visionary long wearing eye shadow. Pretty golden with some sparkles. Perfect on  its own or as a base. For a palettes I been using two: Anastasia Beverly Hills - Amrezy. This one been discontinued but I love it! The shades are gorgeous and as you know all ABH eye shadows are dreamy :)
By Yourself, Be Beautiful Palette ~ I won this palette in BYBB giveaway and I pulled it out recently and I been really loving it. The eye shadow are nicely pigmented. They are shimmers (i like shimmers a lot) and they go perfectly with mattes in ABH Amrezy palette.
Ittse single eye shadow in . pretty shimmery highlight shade. I like to use it in my tear corner :) Overall very pigmented! I have to invest in more eye shadows by Ittse, they are fabulous !






Skin, Body and Hair Care.



Dip Into Pretty nail separators, just look how adorable these are. I already wrote a blog of it, just need to upload pics and it will be ready to go.

Puna Noni Tuberose soap ~handmade and all vegan soap. Smells so good! Leathers up and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. I have few more products from Puna Noni that I have to dive into :)

Formula 10.0.6 USA Wipe your face Off makeup removing wipes are unbelievable! They are heavy soaked (which I like), take off all my makeup including mascara in one wipe! Plus they smell amazing. By far the best makeup wipes I used. I might have change one thing in the packaging but on that I will talk about later.  I also been liking their Deep Down Detox Mud Mask that leaves my skin firm and  clean looking.

Victoria's Secret Body Mist Secret Charm my go to refresher.  Nice crisp scent that wakes me up. Its fresh fruity floral kind off scent. not overpowering. The only con i have is that it don't last too long :( other then that I love it.



here is the pic I posted on my IG with some of my fave beauty products. On some i already did a reviews on some I will so I just link them below :)

Kat Von D x Too Faced Collab



(*this post was supposed to be publishes last week but I had an internet problem. Now everything is back to normal and I am back to regular posting)

Finally we got our sneak peeks of Kat Von D x Too Faced Collaboration.
As a makeup junkie/makeup hoarder I am really excited! 
We been waiting for months to see what KAt and Jerrod came up with. 

When finally first sneak peeks were reveled and Instagram exploded!
Just take a look.




Quoted from Kat's IG
" Say hello to the Too Faced  + Kat Von D palette from our #BetterTogether Collection. The double sided palette is connected magnetically and can be broken apart in to two halves. Each half includes all new shades. "
The palette will come with best selling products Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. Both full size. And as you can see both matches palette perfectly. 

Palette will launched at Sephora this Holidays (December 26th) and Internationally on Valentines Day. 
 Also if I'm not wrong all the shades in palettes are new.



The collection is cruelty free, vegan and sadly Limited Edition. 

 I am definitely saving my $$$ for this! The palette reminds me of the heart pendants, that broke into two halves and you kept one and one you gave to your bff. Do you guys remember those? 
I think Kat and Jerrod did amazing job. Now lets patiently wait for swatches :)


Hair Routine including CHI Onyx Euroshine Hair Styler





Let's talk about my hair today.
 I want to show you more less how look my hair care/hair routine.
As much as I love my hair curly I always go for straight hair. During summer I didn't want to put too much heat on it so I stopped straightening it and instead I left them curly/wavy.

My hair straightening iron is 6 years old and it is about time to change it. To be honest I don't like it anymore. I don't do a good job at straightening hair plus it dries them a lot! and breaks them :(  Yet another reason for me to get rid of it. And for hair, it was not straight the way I wanted. So yes, bye bye my old hair styler  and welcome home CHI :)



CHI Onyx Euroshine Hair Styler ~ my new toy. I always wanted CHI straightening iron. I read so many review throughout the years that I knew one day I will purchase it. Before I start any review you guys should follow me on my IG and Snapchat. I am there regularly and always post demos and other things. I did a small demo of the iron and show before and after pics of my hair. I will insert pics from my snap here too. not the videos tho. Sorry...



anyways back to my new baby.
CHI Onyx Euroshine have a Onyx ceramic 1" plates. It is design to deliver a salon quality results. And it does. CHI Onyx Euroshine Hairstyling Iron has an advanced  ion generator that works  in conjunction with the onyx ceramic plates to provide two times more ions for noticeably smoother and shiner hair.  Four inch extended iron plate feature beveled rounded tips offering seamless rotation for maximum styling versatility and ease of use.  The additional plate length also quickly and easily styles long hair (hence me). In addition, a LED neon light bar displays temperature setting for easy to see and to customize temperature to your liking.



Key Features:
four inch extended iron plates
Ion generator helps to produce shine
LED temperature level display
30s heat up time
Max temperature 450F/232C
1 hour automatic shut off



after two, three uses I been completely obsessed. This flat iron gives me a salon quality results. Straight my hair within minutes, minutes! I remember my old iron i was waiting 15 min for it to heat up.
I like that it didn't burn my hair. It left my hair shiny and silky soft, Yes1 this flat iron did just that. Even the ends were in much better shape then before! Another thing that I really like is that LED bar. It shows you temperature that you can control by pressing up or down button. I like my temperature on 410f/210C. The CHI Onyx Euroshine comes with a thermal mat that you can put the iron while in use. I also have to mention that I LOVE the long cord! My plug is far form the mirror and now with that long cord I can straighten my hair so easy! WooHoo!



Now before I even start straightening my hair I always always have to brush it through. I use Not Your Mother's KnottY To Nice spray dangler  for easier brushing. Then I spray my favorite Thermal Spray by InstaNatural. Then I separate my hair and start the straightening process. Afterwords I use Savannah Hair Care Shea Butter Treatment Oil on all over my hair and White Sands 24/7 serum on my ends along with White Sands Smudge creme. I use a Crave Naturals brush. I actually have to get new brush soon :) Been eyeing few so let's see.

MDSolarSciences Mineral Creme SPF50 Sunscreen

*pr sample*

 SPF is a must for me. As a not so proud owner of fair, sensitive skin I should be applying products with SPF all the time. If I don't and then I spend too much time in direct sunlight, my skin gets red, like lobster red and as you can guess that is not a good and not fun at all. One time I forgot to apply it on my back and went out to the beach for less than 30min... can you imagine my skin? It was bad really really bad! form that day forward I been using sunscreen a lot , especially summer time.

For a past few weeks I been using MDSolarSciences Mineral Creme SPF50. This sunscreen is perfect for all skin types. It comes packaged in cute dark pink tube with flip-flop cap. Very easy to squeeze out too :) It comes out as a white creme. Its really lightweight and silicon based. That silicon base one your massage into your skin it feels silky smooth. I really like the feeling of it. Blends really easy and leaves off a matte finish. 
It also contains antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Green Tea, Cranberry fruit and pomegranate extract. That makes it perfect for people with acne/oily/prone skin ( hence - me ). 
I didn't dry nor hydrate. For hydration I suggest you can use some good hydrating SPF moisturizer on top of it. For me I like the way it is. 



Now does it have any scent? No it is fragrance free :) 

I found it it works good as a primer. I been using it under my makeup and I must say it works really good. Holds my makeup in place and on top of that protects my skin from sun rays.  
I almost forgot to mention it is waterproof. If you don't wear makeup and go swimming or towel drying re-apply every 2h. 



There are two thing I don't like about it. 
First it leaves a white cast on the face after it dries. Since I wear makeup I apply either foundation or bb cream to cover it and then I go on with bronzer. Looks much better
The second is the price. This 1.7oz (48g) cost $30! And for my wallet this is a lot. I know you can get your sunscreens at drugstore for less then $15, but are they any good or even comparable to this one? So far I been using Neutrogena Sunscreen and I think I like this one better.   

Mineral Sunscreen can be purchased here.
Price $30

 here is the pic when I received it. how cute it is :)
That green floating thingy :) SO adorable and prefect for your drinks. So stay sun protected and cheers!

Thanks MDSolarSciences!
