Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Corrector ~ swatches and review

*pr sample*

Hi Loves!

Today I want to show you my new goodies from Lancome.
The brand launched recently few new products.
Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Correctors are one of it. Ultra  pigmented, full coverage that hides skin imperfections.
 It addresses following skin concerns : redness, dullness, dark spots, under eye dark circles, sallowness and acne scars.
Blends really well, and remember a little goes a long way.

Green ~ neutralize redness for light to medium  skin tones

 Lavender ~ brightness sallowness for light to medium  skin tones

Yellow ~ brightness dullness for light to medium skin tones and minimizes dark spots and circles for fair complexion

Peach ~ minimize dark spots , dark circles and acne scars on medium skin tones

Orange/red ~ minimizes dark spots circles and acne scars on deeper skin tones

I really enjoy them ! Especially the green one that helps me with my redness. Formula is really pigmented! One dot can cover your face ! It don't cake or crease. I am still playing with rest of it, but the green one is amazing. If you look for a good green corrector check it out! Next stop i want to try the concealers! If the formula is similar I know I will be hooked on it!

Price $31

Multi-Misting with Pixi Beauty Mists

*pr sample*

Hi Loves,

Welcome in this gorgeous day :) Lets talk about face mists today :) I know I love them , how about you?  I can't imagine misting my face before and after I apply makeup or even a skin care.
Pixi Beauty mists were first ones I tried. Currently they own 5 mists, but I will talk only about 4 which I currently own.

Hydrating Milky Mist 

This one is my favorite. This is my first mist I tried form PIXI range few months ago and fell in love.
This one is great when you have a dry skin. And during winter's month my skin got dry.
It provides an instant boost of hydration with hyaluronic acid to plump the skin. As well it contains black oat, linoleic acid and pro vitamin A to hydrate and soothe. I really like the scent of this one. This mist is always with me, because sometimes during the day I need a boost of hydration.

Makeup Fixing Mist

It has a rose water and green tea formula that helps set makeup and keeps it in place all day. Can be use as a primer and setting mist. Two in one solution , amazing right? It helps powders melts into the skin and gives a beautiful almost air brushes look. Skin don't look cakey.

Glow Mist

This is the mist that people can stop raving about. This mist once you spray it makes you skin looks brighter and glow-y! It contains 13(!) oils, aloe vera and fruits extracts that protects and hydrates the skin.  So if you skin is dry and dull and need some dewiness this mist is for you! I only use it weekends when I don't wear makeup. I spritz it all over my face . I tried with my makeup as a setting makeup spray but unfortunately my oily skin don't like it that way.

Vitamin Makeup Mist

its a vitamin boosting toner that works so good as soonest I wake up.  This mist been on my list for a quite some while. Its made with orange blossom water base enrich with citrus fruit extracts, lavender and arginine to hydrate and strength the skin. It does have a citrus scent and it feels energizing .  I like to use it the most mornings after washing my face.

I personally enjoy each of the mists. Adding them to both my makeup and skin care routine is a game changer :) Mists are lightweight and the idea of multi misting is fab!

Have you try PIXI mists or any other?

PIXI mists are available at Target and PIXI website.
Price $15 each

Algenist Reveal Concentrated Luminizing Drops ~ Swatches and Review

*pr sample*

Hey Loves!

Hope you all are great and like me looking forward to warmer weather. As I am writing this post (don't know when it will go up) NYC area is being hit by a snow storm. Due to all above ground subways being suspended, I am chilling at home :) I did go out to get a creamer for my coffee and that is it! Its icy rain, cold and windy! So yeah I am better off at home preparing new blog post for you. 
A while ago I got a really nice PR package form Algenist. I screamed when I saw reveal Luminizing drops inside! I wanted to try them so bad! As I said many times before I am a highlight junkie. 

There are three shades :
* Pearl ~ contain silver pigments 
* Champagne ~ contain gold pigments 
* Rose ~ contain pink pigments 

These hybrid serum highlighters are not the "in your face" type of highlighters. The more subtle side and give a soft glow to the skin. It also helps to correct and uneven skin tone while providing anti age benefits.  The focus of the drops is to nourish skin, reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. while providing radiance. 
The drops are packed in a beautiful frosted glass bottle with a dropper. There is also a very pleasant scent to it, which I really really like :).

A little goes a long way. The can be mix with foundation, moisturizer or by itself. I like to use them as a highlight on top of my foundation. Gosh they do give a beautiful "glow form within". I use wither my fingers or beauty sponge to apply, either works just fine. They don't feel greasy nor they sink into my pores. I really enjoy the soft glow I get :)  The consistency is thin and not watery. 
The shades i use the most are Pearl and Rose :) I was so drawn to both :) for a gal with cool undertones like me these shades are fabulous. 

What else I like about them is that there is no glitter in it . Beautiful sheen without being overwhelming.  I don't own many liquid highlights but I did  swatches the CoverFX custom drops and compare to these the other ones are way more intense and more metallic. Don't get me wrong I will still get the lightest shade from CoverFX . 

I like Algenist Drops. If you looking for subtle glow with out being to intense check them out. 
They are lovely , they mix great with foundation and they contain great skin benefits :) Whats more to ask! 

They can be found @ Sephora and Algenist website.

Beauty Favorites 2017 ~ March

Hi loves!

yes! I am keeping my monthly game strong so far! I haven't miss a month hahah!

better late than never :) I am already planning my April Faves hahah! there is so many products I been loving ! 

Let's just jump to my favorites :) I have few products to mention :)


Let start with a glow! Oh guys I love a good highlight :) Here are two that I been using on and off past month. Pixi Beauty AspynOvard London Lustre ~ soft, velvety texture with a luminous sheen. I been obsessed with it since the first time I got my huge pr package from the brand. it looks amazing on. Second my most loved last month was by the brand 100%Pure. Gemmed Luminizer in shade Moonstone Glow, and holy moly I love it! first off the packing is gorgeous! Pink tin that hold this beauty inside. The highlight is simply stunning! Icy pink that looks really good on my fair skin. I am so grateful to Octoly and 100% Pure for choosing me to review this baby!:)
Kiss NY Pro eye shadow palette in Demeter is simply beautiful. Love the color selection. I like how they names their palettes after Greek goddesses :) I am a huge mythology fan if you didn't know :)This palette will get more use in incoming months as well :) Yes the colors are very spring like in my opinion :) ELF Cosmetics Lip Exfoliate~ after winter my lips are in super bad condition. I been  using ELF's exfoliate few times a week hahah! seriously tho for a price this gem does a great job at removing dead skin cells from lips and leaves them soft. Once i am done I reach for Milani's Moisture Lock oil infused lip treatment. Now I heard so many mixed reviews but I like it. Add shine and well after exfoliating my lips add moisture. 


L'Occitane Immortelle Oil makeup remover, this stuff is amazing! I been using it on and off and I still go back to it. The best oil makeup remover. As you can see I am almost half way done with it hahha! two pumps and all my makeup is gone. It don't leave a greasy residue and it won't make your eyes blurry. SebaMed Face and Body Wash, well for me is just a face wash. I like it. very gentle and cleans away all the dirt and left over makeup, works great with my Soniclear Petitte by Michael's Todd beauty. This brush is life! You can check a review that I posted few days ago :) Hydrating Milky Mist by Pixi Beauty, if you don't have you , you have to run and get it. I can not live with out this! I spray it before makeup and after and few times during the day :) a must have for me :) did I mention its really lightweight and smells amazing? I just received a pr from PIXI including all their mist, so yes stay tuned for a blog post next month., all about multi-misting :)


A new category ? why not. two my most loved fragrances are by Estee Lauder -Modern Muse  La Rouge and Modern Muse  La Rouge Gloss. To be honest I can't pick my favorite out of the two. Both smell amazing. 
Modern Muse La Rouge Gloss is more fruity and La Rouge is more rosy-berry vanilla kind of scent. I actually will be getting another Modern Muse perfume very soon. So I might write a post next month on it. I will own 4 bottles so I can compare and tell you which I like the most :)


I have not change much in my hair routine. But there are few products and tools I been loving for a past few months. Bio Silk Straighting Titanium Iron, this a new launch for Bio Silk and you guys so worth every penny! Straights my long, really long hair fast and it makes them look so beautiful! Before I start with it I use Bio Silk Thermal Mist or Living Proof Mist. I find both working really good on my hair :) and yes I like them both :) Madam CJ Walker Bressica Seed Hair Oil is a MUST HAVE! I been putting it on my hair every other day and I see so many changes! my hair is not as dry as before and they feel silky soft and look healthy! 

Michael's Todd Beauty Soniclear Petite ~ my go to facial brush

*pr sample*

Hey Loves,

A quick review of Michael's Todd beauty Soniclear facial brush. 
I reviewed it before, but recently I got a new one, so
here is a review once again.

Like I said many time clean skin is a happy skin. Its a must. And for someone who plays in makeup-land its really important. 
I use face brush all the time and my skin feels and looks better. Investing in a device like Soniclear is really good idea you guys. :) I said it many times I do prefer this face brush over Clarisonic. First off I feel like it clean my face better and second brush head last longer ( you don't have to change it for 6 months , Clarisonic you need to do so every 3 months ).

I have acne/sensitive skin by the way. The brush on the device is soft it never irritate my skin, it was never to harsh. The head don't spin but it vibrates. Cleanse all the dirt and leftover makeup away with ease. Soniclear is a sonic skin cleansing brush with build in antimicrobial protection against stain, odor causing bacteria. Sonic cleansing can create a breeding ground for microbial contamination when skin cells, makeup and moisture residue combine with bacteria that cling to the brush bristles between cleansing. It also means that you don't have to replace head as often as with other similar devices.

There are also 3 cleaning speeds that you can adjust to your preference (Low, Medium, High).  
another great thing is that once you start washing your face, it will beep every 20 seconds to tell you to move to other part of your face. I fin this really helpful!

If you have MIA you can notice that the charging is almost same. I said almost ... well there is same attaching charger that just cling to your device ( see pictures below) but it also comes with a charging stand. you can slide the charger in and leave you Soniclear upright until finish charging and even after. I keep my upright all the time. The charging cord is universal. It ends with an USB and you can plug it in any charger. So with that said if you travel to other country and thy have different outlet, you just don't have to worry. Plug into anything that USB fits. Which will works so good for me, coz next time I go back to my country I can bring my Soniclear with me :)

Michael's Todd recently launched new designs for their Soniclear Petite! 10 new fun  designs and colors to choose from.
I already had a pink one before and now I got one called Hawaiian Bliss. This design is so beautiful! Mix of red and blue flowers all over , ahhh just brightness my day already :)

You can find it on Michael Todd's Website ~ $89

and did I mention its cruelty free?

What do you use ? Do you use face brushes?
