2011 November Favorite and Swatches + Mini Review

I Don't ususally do favorite posts because I usually stick with products that i know works for me, but this month ive discovered some good products that ive being reaching more often than other.  So i thought i'd share with you guys.

Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Body Butter
Laneige Total UV Base
Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation Primer
Too Faced Lipgloss in Pillow talk
Make up Forever Aqualiner 
Boxum Beauty Eyeshadow Base in Poodle
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip Colour in Coral Crush

Here are the Swatches:
with Flash
Withouth Flash

I am loving the Body Butter by Bath&Body Works, not only it smells nice, but it deeply moisturizes your skin even when its very dry.

As far as eyeliner goes, im loving this Make up Forever One because it is waterproof, although i do think ive had better colour pay off that this particular black pencil, but i like to use this one on my waterline.

The Buxom Beauty Eyebase has being my favorite steady through mid-late this year, and i have to it doesn't crease for up to about 7 hours, i love this colour particularly because its versatility. i use it under any look.

As of this months, ive being obsessed with coral lip-colour so ive reaching out this Maybelline Lipstick more often than usual, i like the colour its very bright, and it warms up your complexion instantly but i do wish its more opaque...

If you've seen my look of the day posts b4 you'll know i used Too faced lipgloss in Pillow Talk quite often since the colour is perfect nude over any lipstick, it also has a soft plumping effecst as well.

I Got this Laura Mercier Base as 100 point Deluxe Sample from Sephora and i have to say, while it does feel a bit dry on my skin, it does make my foundation last a whole lotta longer...

This Laneige  Total UV base is like a BB cream, so i usually wear it when im on the go because it is easy to apply and has Spf 40 which is a big plus for me.

So ya This concludes my November Favorite...Let me know if you guys enjoy this type of post...

In the mean time i hope you guys have a great day/Night, and i will update/post/blog very soon

As always with Lotsa Luv and XOXO.J.

Look of the Day - Tokidoki Robbery Palette Part Deux

Quite a Few months back i did a look of the day with one of Palette that came with the Tokidoki Robbery Palette, And i was saying that i would do another look using the other two palette that came with the Robbery box. So Here is the look i came up with.

Since the Palette itself is very Gold/Brown colour, so i think this look is very good for fall...and the colours from the palette remind me of fallen leaves..

Here is the Close up:

Eyes Open

Eyes Closed.

I actually really like the False Eyelashes that i am using..since it gives more volume at the end which is the kind that i really like.

Here is products that I used:
Tokidoki Palette from Robbery Box
Smash Box Pencil Liner
False Eyelashes from China
Urban Decay Blush in Score
MAC MSF Natural in Medium Deep
MAC Viva Glam Cyndi 
Too Faced Lipgloss in Pillow Talk.

And now some updates~~~recently ive discovered the fun in cooking~~~so instead of playing with make up ive doing alot of kitchen work..lol, but i am still a beginner when it comes to cooking though...but i luv make breakfast for myself, and today im gonna try and make coke-cola chicken wing...lol it seem to be very easy to make, and taste very good, if i do succeed in making it, i might do a blog post about it...lol but ya cooking is sooo much fun...lol

anyways i hope you guys have a great day~~~and see you next time

Tokidoki Cromatico Palette(Quads) Swatch and mini Review

So the Beautiful Miss Alex from ThisIsAlx requested that i do a swatch of the Tokidoki Palette that ive shown in my last haul post, so i was like okay why not~~~if you guys dont know who Alex is, you should really check her blog out, especially right now she has a awesome giveaway. She is one of the first blogger that i got really close with, we both live in the GTA, so we are always planning our meet up in the future...lol

I actually have quite a few Tokidoki product to start with, these two that im showing in this post i got them when i was in ottawa during Canadian thx giving weekend...These quads were on sale during the summer for 14 i think, but right now they went back to full price again, which is 24. I paid full price for these >_<

Aren't they purrty~~~
So ya the above two are the ones i got. The Pink palette is called Polpettina, the Green palette is called Bastardino. I think in general, Tokidoki palette are good quality, the one problem that i've had with them is that, they tend to have quite a bit of fall out, so you really have to make sure you tapped off the excess products. As far as pigmentation goes, without a base they are not as pigmented as say MAC e/s, but they are still good. With a base either colourless ones like UDPP or Too Faced Shadow Insurance, or Coloured eyebase like Mac paintpot or MUFE aquacream ect, they show up extremely well. Also when applied with a base, there tend to be less fall out as well...

So ya here are the Swatches:
Polpettina (click to large Picture)
Bastardino (Click to see Large Picture)
In general these colours are very versatile, especially Bastardino, which i think could easily be a everyday palette with the browns, the beige and the green. Polpettina are great to create a good day time smokey with a hint of girly-ness with the pink. the Colour Riosino, Carnivora and Candy Cane are very very shimmery with alot of glitters, so you might wanna apply with a light hand and rmber to tap off excess products. The Colour Polpettina, Adios, and Mummetto are Matte finishes. The colour LA Gun and Bastardino, are shimmery, but they don't have the huge chunks of glitters are Candy Cane for example, they also produce less fall out.  As far as texture goes, from the matte finishes to the super glittery ones, they all feel very soft, almost have silk texture. even the glittery ones dont feel too harsh...

So Overall, i think these are good shadows, if you can get them when they are one sale i say get it, because i think its a great deal. i wouldn't say they are mediocre, but their quality is above average, and even though they are a bit pricey, but they won't feel feel ripped off by it, plus the Packaging is too darn cute too pass on.
So here are my scores:
Pigmentation 7/10
Texture 8/10
Price 6.5/10 (kinda expensive)
Packaging 10/10 (Uber Cute and they come with cute little phone charm.)
Overall 7/10

So ya this concludes my little review plus swatches of my tokidoki cromatico palette. i hope you guys find this helpful, and again if you guys have any requests or questions let me know~~~i love to do more swatches for you guys, but you have to tell me which one you guys wanna see~~~

So in the mean time i hope y'all have a good weekend

As always with Lotsa Luv and XOXO.J.
