Naked ReLoaded - worth hype and money?

*purchased by me*

Another Urban Decay Naked palette added to my collection :)Cherry is the only one that is missing at this moment :)
Anyways new NAKED Reloaded. Palette that replaced the OG Naked. Loved by some hated by others.
Wanna know what I think of it?Then keep on reading :)

When back in Fall 2018,Urban Decay decided to discontinue the OG, the first ground breaking palette and beauty community mourned it loss. It was sad to see it go. The first NAKED palette, the palette that started it all. Myself I didn't own it until then.Most of retailers had this palette on sale,and basically once is gone it's gone forever. I bought my there and then:)

(21 Days of Beauty Haul )

Around mid February,UD launched a new, better version of OG Naked,Naked Reloaded.
Though out the months I been reading many mixed reviews, watched countless of YT videos and still didn't know if I should buy it. Back around when Ulta had 21 days of beauty, there was deal on this palette. Basically if you buy you would get extra 300 points. I bought it right and there. I love Ulta's point system,so much better than Sephoras.

Palette came few days after and hi,I was blown away by it.
First off the packaging is beyond beautiful. Just look at it. All other Naked palette comes in tin packaging, but not this one. It comes in plastic  compact covered in cushioned satin fabric. The only con about it is that it gets dirty easy and its hard to clean.
I keep my palette in its box and try to not touch it with dirty hands. So far I am doing good job as the palette looks really good :)

Inside you get 12 brand new shades,of which 4 comes in a larger pan. UD thinks that these will be used the most as a transition shades so that's why the pans are bigger.
The palette contains soft browns and rosy hue shades. I think it is so easy to pair the shades together and come up with gorgeous neutral looks. There are mattes, shimmers and one glittery kinda shade that is very crumbly and I am not liking it. Mattes blends really nice,shimmers are gorgeous.Gosh I do love shimmers :) So far I have a luck with this palette and we are good friends.
Also as you notice this new palette don't com with a brush or eyeliner. Personally I find it more appealing, plus its lighter and cheaper then other UD Naked palettes.Big plus here :)

Swatches :

On a side not I do get ABH Sultry vibes, but I didn't compare these two yet. Maybe we can keep that for the future post.

Overall I like this palette and I am happy with my purchase. I think priced a only $44 is a good spend. If you like shades like this and have extra money,go for it :)

Boxy Charm - Totally - August 2019 Unboxing

*purchased by me*

Another month,another Boxy Charm. 
This month, I won't hide I am a bit disappointed with Boxy. Wanna know why? Well, last month boxy sent our emails with a poll.Basically you had to answer which product you would like to receve more in next boxy. So here is the issue. I wanted skin care. There was a Peach and Lilly Serum that I really crave. It went u against Tarte Mascara. I choose the serum but got mascara. So I am not sure if they didn't get enough serums or what? Kinda iffy they did same poll with luxe box that is coming next month...So lets see if the product I picked in the poll with arrive at my door step. I like the idea of the poll but if boxy is not listening so what is the point of it?

Ugh. I m done LOL here is a peek inside my August Box that the theme is TOTALLY!

* Becca Cosmetics Hydra Mist Refreshing Powder - this particular product everyone got it. Its a powder that sets and refreshes makeup for silky smooth finish. Formulated with 50% water and glycerin, this powder creates mist like sensation on the skin. This not a review yet. I tried it coz I wanted to see if how it feels ... and its wet! I like the cooling effect and it reminds me of a Revlon powder, I believe it was ColorStay Aqua powder. I was using it a lot back in 2014. I love the water effect it had. This Becca powder I feel it will work amazing for people with dry skin as it really gives a boost of hydration. Retail price $39

*Wander Beauty Glow Ahead Illuminating Oil - ummm no. I love Wander Beauty and most of their products work so good with me. But I don't think any OILY person would like to add more illuminating products into their routine.

 But I can;t judge something I never tried right? I mean it could be a hidden gem! I will give it a go but I don't think it will work for me. I will keep you all posted on this :)Retail $42

*Tarte Big Ego Mascara - ultra black, vegan mascara. I don't really like Tarte mascaras tbh. I never had a luck with them. But its hmmm I dunno I don't want to like it coz I wanted a serum in its place.

But anyways the packaging is super hot pink and I just checked if it's not dried out.Someone on BC Facebook said they got dried out mascara. Again I will keep you guys posted on how I like it. Retail $23

*** Update on the mascara - its dry and does nothing to my lashes. Really disappointing product.  

* Ace Beauty - Glimmer Eyeshadow Duo - not gonna lie they are cute and remind me of CP. but dang gilr they are expensive! Duo retails at $25.The colors I got are so much more wearable then the hot pink and silver.

 So I got Iced Latte - that is pretty gold and Cotton Candy- that it metallic peachy orange. I am definitely happy with these two :) The other variation was PUR Barbie peel off mask that I wanted a bit more :)

* Steve Laurant - Lip Liner in the shade Vouge - Didn't open and not planning to. I can add it as a gift to some one. I have tones of lip liners and I don't use them much.Plus this shade is more on a brown side and the over all "color theme" of this box is pink. Retail $15

Total of this month box came up to $144. 

Overall I feel like this month was more of a miss for me .But next month is a Boxy LUXE month and I cant wait to see what will I get. Again they did run a poll to see what products I would like to see in my box. Hoping I get what ever I picked.

The Perfect Matcha Skin Care by Physicians Formula

*pr sample*

Did you know that aside form great makeup products, Physicians Formula have an amazing and affordable skin care line? The Rose All Day products have been staple in my routine for some time now( blog post is coming soon). The new to me is the Matcha Line, which I already adore!

PF skin care line is bomb. Simple as that. I got a lot of request on my IG and girls wanted to know how good is the line? Both the Matcha and the Rose one. Spoiler alert- both are amazing.

Physicians Formula team was kind enough to sent me few products to try :) Today, in this post I will only focus on Matcha skin care. So lets start it shall we?

* The Perfect Matcha 3 in 1 Beauty Water - ummmm hello beautiful scent. Don't you just love when your skin care smells good? I do. It has very nice and fresh scent. "Soak up the antioxidant benefits of natural matcha green tea with this ultra gentle 3 in 1 beauty water that tones, hydrates and sets makeup in place. It features a refreshing antioxidant pack formula to leave skin soft and supple while combating dull, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone.

* Clarifying Matcha Green Tea - helps improve complexion and its full of antioxidants.
* Hydrating Bamboo Shoot Extract - has great skin  soothing properties and helps correct the appearance of uneven skin tone.
* Re balancing Lotus Extract - purifies and soothes. 

This is a great setting spray for you makeup or just a water to give a dehydrated skin some refreshment. I actually keep it home,but I am considering getting one more bottle and keep it at work.If you didn't know I have a quite makeup / beauty stash at work,including hair brushes :) But seriously I fell in love with the first spritz. It is amazing and really leaves my kin hydrated ,fresh and sets in makeup (I use before and after makeup). The mist is amazing and sprays water evenly. This beauty water is perfect for any skin type,even those with sensitive skin,as its really gentle and have soothing properties. 
It retails for $16.99 for 3.4fl (100ml). I think it is a bit pricey but PF have sales all the time so you can get it sometimes with 40% off :)

* The Perfect Matcha 3in 1 Melting Cleansing Balm - ok I think I found my favorite cleansing balm, no joke. I tired so many cleansing balms and by far I like this one the most. I been doing double cleanse before it was a big thing. my favorite cleansing oil is by L'occiate and balm this one. I still do want to try the Farmacy and Drunk Elephant ones but hey they are so expensive! I dunno. 
As of now here is my HG :) its ultra gentle and effectively removes makeup,deeply cleanse impurities and leaves skin feeling supple and hydrated. Definitely hydrated,with no greasy residue left. It melts away makeup so easy and so good. Texture is think and quickly melts into the skin. Once all makeup is melted I use wash cloth to take it off and followup with cleanser. Hey PF can you make a The Perfect Matcha Cleanser to go along with this balm? It would an amazing duo! 

Solution for :
* Stubborn, long wear makeup removal
* Clogged pores
* Dullness and dehydration

* Clarifying Matcha Green Tea
* Hydrating Bamboo Shoot Extract
* Re-balancing Lotus Extract 

Like I said I love it,and been using it since I got it. A little goes a long way and well I forgot to mention that it comes with a tiny spatula for easy scooping out. This cleansing balm is great for all skin types,and especially for people with dry skin and it is really hydrating. I have oily skin and I still enjoy it. I don't feel like I get more oily or whats so ever. What I feel is a fresh,and free of makeup and debris skin. I definitely found my matcha with this balm :)
Retail price $12.95 1.4oz (40gr)
