Burt's Bees ~ BB Cream, Lip Balms and Lipsticks ~ Review + Swatches

*pr sample*


Hi Beauties!

Today I have Burt's Bees Makeup review :) All the products were send to me by Ricky's Blogger Box.
Now to be honest I never tried any Burt's Bees products. I only hear or saw them at my local drugstores.
When I saw Burt's Bees Lipsticks and BB cream I screamed!



LIPSTICKS ~ There is 14 permanent shades in a line. Made with natural ingredients and the color selection is amazing! They feel really moisturizing, soften and condition lips all day long all because of their natural formula including beeswax, Moringa Oil and raspberry Seed Oil. They have satin finish. The feel like a lip balm and yet you get a full coverage on your lips :) They are creamy and feel lightweight. Perfect for everyday wear. The packaging is super cute ! lightweight and the cap reminds me of a beehive :) each cap shows the lippie color hidden inside :) the only thing is, you need to be careful because lipstick don't hid all the way... some it still out so you need to be careful when pulling and putting the cap back on . Another things is it really gives me hard to twisting up the lipstick... Hope they can improve it .
I got 7 beautiful shade to try and OMG yes Monica love them and now she need to complete collection and get reaming 7. Don't ask I am weird like that I need to have all possible colors they are other wise I cant sleep. I really really been loving them :)
* Suede Splash #502 ~ medium brownish mauve
* Sunset Cruise #523 ~ medium coral shade 
* Fuchsia Flood #512 ~ pretty pink 
* Iced Iris #510 ~ light bubble gum pink. looks a bit sheer on the lips tho.
* Brimming Berry #514 ~ red with brown undertones 
* Russet River ~  vampy brown with red undertones 
* Ruby Ripple #521 ~ medium dark red 




Available at Ricky's NYC 
Price $8.99 each 




BB Creams ~ I love BB and CC creams! i always use them summer time when I don't' need much and heavy coverage. Burt's Bees BB Cream 9 in 1 multi-tasking formula with Board Spectrum SPF 15 enhances your skin's natural beauty instantly. This unique natural formula moisturizes, firms skin, evens skin tone, reduces appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, conceals, illuminates, perfects skin and makes it look more beautiful. BB Cream is formulated with natural mineral pigments to give a beautiful natural glow. 
BB cream comes in a squeezable tube. Available in 3 shades Light, Light/Medium, Dark. Really hope that they will come out with bigger color range. I use Light and Light/Medium. I mix both of them to suit my complexion more. It provides light to medium coverage which I like when it comes to BB and CC creams. Feels like a moisturizer when applied. Non greasy. I like to set it with a powder after :) I am really happy that it contains SPF and I am excited to start using it more once weather gets warmer. It makes a perfect pair with my Osmosis Pressed Base :)




Price : $14.99 each




Tinted Lip Balms ~ lip balms are such a must have for me. Especially for my daughter, she gets her lips really chapped during winter. I been loving Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms :) not only they soften and moisturize lips but also give a hint of color :) Love them! especially since I tend to wear super drying lipsticks this is a must have. They do also smell amazing :) I got my in shades : Red Dahlia, Sweet Violet and Zinnia (which my daughter took ).
Price : $6.99
All Lipsticks, BB Creams and Tinted Lip Balms Can be purchase at Ricky's NYC.
Looking forward to try more of famous Burt's Bees products :) 


Sephora VIB Haul ~ April 2016




Hi Loves!

Ok so I spend some money :) Sephora send me a 15% off coupon and I just had to use it :)  too be honest I wasn't planing on getting anything,but then I saw Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collaboration on sale and I just had to have it. Placed my order online. Then last day while browsing in the store I decided to pick up new Sephora Collection Minnie Mouse. 

Minnie Mouse Sephora Collection




Again I was not planning on getting it, but once I swatched eye shadow palette I was like "i need to have it". I am such a palette hoarder
!But I really like the colors in this Minnie Mouse palette. And they are so pigmanted. There is 20 stunning shades. What I like about this palette is that it comes in a faux leather black-gold polka dot clutch. Yes! the eyeshadow tray and mirror can be removed and you can use it as a clutch! How awesome!



 Another thing I picked up form this collection was blush.  
 Minnie's Inner Glow Luminizing Blush, I do think this will make a perfect highlight. Its peachy and it have a lots of sparkles. The packaging is black and gold. With cute shadowy minnie :) Blush is very sheer and that's why I said it could be use as a highlight. 



and I will be getting lipstick and liquid lipstick set. I didn't see the set in my sephora yet. wonder why? 

another part of my haul is Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani.




I picked up blush palette, 5 lipsticks and a lip liner. 
Blush Palette~ I missed on the deal that ULTA had before. You cold get it for only $22.50, I been dying to get my hands on it since the day it came out. Since I have eyeshadow palette I need blush palette too right? Anyways the packaging is simply gorgeous.Inside there is 6 beautiful shades. Cant wait to start using it :)




Lipsticks ~ the shade that I really wanted was unfortunately sold out.yes I know me and my luck. But when you see sephora dropped price form $18 to $12, well you need to get al least one ...or all. In my case is all:) The more the merrier. I got all 5 shades that were available :) and I am so happy! plus they are just beautiful! the colors are pigmanted ! Hopefully I will be able to get Ex Girlfriend one day :)




Lip Liner~ My friend ordered it for herself, but told me to keep it. Yay1 I heard they are amazing! even better then lipsticks :) Excited to try it out :) ( I didn't take a pic of it , sorry) 

Few things I got form Sephora inside JCPenney. found a in a clearance section :)
eyeshadows looks amazing ! and the nail polish came out a bit over then $1! what a steal.



Yellow ~ banana split
Purple ~ Lavender Field
Green ~ Picnic in the park

so that is for my haul! what did you get from annual Sephora sale ?  I sent almost $200! that is insane! I have never spend so much money in one time :) But oh well, girl gotta do what she gotta do in order to make herself happy. 


White Sands ~ The Cure 24/7

*Pr Sample*



Hi Loves!

Today I wanted to talk about a new hair care products in my hair care routine. 
White Sands The Cure 24/7 is a leave in treatment with visible results within minutes after application. Treatment can be done any time, day or night on wet or dry hair. The Cure 24/7 repairs damaged hair fibers, making it stronger, smoother and shinier. 
My hair is extremely damage , as you all know by now!lol ... can't help but repeat myself.
I focused this products mostly on my ends. Gosh you need to see bottom of my hair , disaster. 
My ends are dry and yes split. The Cure comes in a big bottle (100ml) which is decent amount. 
I usually pump 3 "pumps", rub my hands together and then I apply directly on my hair. I do it right after shower before blow drying and then during week day onto my dry hair, focusing mostly on my ends. I like to brush it off a bit after applying Wash your hands after, they get sticky. I don't notice any strong smell coming from it. I say there is no scent. But no does it work?
Well my ends didn't look as dry as before that's for sure. I really think if using this product regularly would stop and maintain the spit ends. I actually right now don't really care if I use, because I am about to cop my hair a bit.They are way too long and its driving me nuts. So once I get them shorter a bit I put this Cure to work more often and see on how it will perform :) I really have a high hopes for it :) So far I am pleased with results :)Like I said my ends look better :) and my hair feel better as well :)



You can purchase it here---> White Sands
Price $29.99

Osmosis Makeup and Skin Care ~ review

*pr sample*




Hi Loves,

Today I have for you more of amazing Osmosis :)
I did review in the past their eye-shadow palette and a lipstick. Today I have two more makeup products and one skin care :)
Osmosis Colour makeup is bismuth-free, mineral based makeup line that loaded with skin nourishing antioxidants, amino acids and essential proteins, as well as  zinc oxide for build in UV sun protection. the special formulation goes with out the 'heavy look'. Its safe for acne and sensitive skin people.
Here the links for my previous posts :
Lipstick 
Eye Shadow palette 



Lets start with 2 reaming makeup products I have for you :)


 Osmosis Colour Blush "Pink Pearl" ~ such a pretty pink blush :) warm pink that gives enough flush to your cheeks :) Feels really soft when you swatch :) applies and blends really nice :) In the pan looks like it might be peachy but once you swatch it is pink with some peachy undertones :)to compare I swatch it next to MAC 'Peachykeen" and NARS "Orgasm" which both are more peachy. The finish of this blush is satin. I really love the packaging :) Clear lid, so you can see the product :) I swear when I look at it it reminds me of NARS Orgasm blush ... As i said before Osmosis uses mineral pigments that are safe for us. There is 9 colors to choose from :)
You can get it form here ----> Blush Pink Pearl.
Price :  $27






Osmosis Mineral Pressed Base "Natural Light" ~ provides a semi-matte finish with long lasting coverage. I been really enjoying this pressed foundation. It covers really nice and with out looking heavy on my face. It looks flawless. I actually afraid that the color I got would not match me ... It is hard to choose when you cant swatch and see which is for you. I like to use it alone or on top of BB creams :) Works great on my oily skin :) Again the packaging :) Love it. Sturdy and feels really luxurious. It have a mirror and it is refillable :) So once you are done you, pop the old one out and insert new one :) So eco friendly! don't you think ?
You can get it here ---> Pressed Base
Price : $38



Now the only skin product I own form Osmosis SKIN Care



Osmosis Calm level 2 Vitamin A Serum ~ This is such a great product for sensitive skin!  It encourages the skin to calm inflammation, restore the protective barrier, increase skin nutrients and immune repair, rebuild the thin dermis, normalize oil, hydrate, firm and protects skin form UV rays.
This serum can be uses twice a day. Morning and Night. I use only nighttime. After I am done with my skin routine, I apply it last. Now you have to blend it well into your skin. It does have a yellowish color and int the morning you can see dried yellow product on your skin. When I blend it feels rather sticky. I have to wait till it dries up completely before I go to bed. The scent is rather strong. I did dislike at the beginning but now I can cope with it :) you get used to it once you use it quite often.
I don't have much of a redness on my skin, what ever  I had before using serum its long gone. Skin feels calm, I also notice that it gets less oily. Didn't break me out or nor I see any irritation. So far so good :) I will continue using it :)
I do recommend for all of you who fights with acne and redness to try this one out! I am 100% sure it will help you :)
You can get it here ----> Calm level 2 Vitamin A Serum 
Price : $78
