Look for the Day - Wet N Wild "Blue had Me at Hello

I bought the much talked about and much beloved Wet N Wild 8 Pan eyeshadows awhile back, and even though I knew from the start that they'd be totally awesome, I just hadn't the chance to work with them yet. The other day, i was like "you know what, I'm gonna have some fun with the Wet N Wild palette" and i did this fun and i swear Totally wearable look for daytime...well maybe not so much for work...using the Wet N Wild 8 Pan eyeshadow "Blue had Me at Hello"

So here is the look:
You Likey???

EyesOpen
With Flash
Eyes Closed

I was wearing this the whole day when i was at t he mall and eating early dinner with the hubby, and i totally luv the look, and i luv the palette even more...If by seeing my terribly drawn diagram that you think its a hard look to do, you are wrong~~~its totally easy... and i will start by showing you guys the palette

the Colours are just so pretty
So here are the steps:
  1. Use 1 under your crease/eye fold to create a thick liner like line
  2. Use 2 above 1 on the centre of of your eyelids, go over the crease/fold if you like
  3. Use 3 on the outer corner of your eyes to create depth
  4. Go back to 1 and use it liner your lower lashline
  5. Use 4 on the outer 1/3 of your lower lashline to intensify.
  6. Use 5 on the inner corner of the eye.
  7. Use 6 On the brow bone as high0light colour.
  8. Put on Demi false eyelashes
  9. Line your upper lashline and lower lashline as well as waterlines with black liner.
  10. Apply your favorite blush preferably a colour has a cooler undertone
  11. Apply a Nude lipstick and your favorite gloss
  12. The key to this look is blend the colour together so there are no harshline, and go back to intensify the colour if needed.
So ya i hope you guys like this look, i absolutly love it. It is kinda bold, but really wearable.  Now i know everybody has different eye shapes, so feel free to add your own little touch to this look if you decide to rock it...If you guys have any questions or any requests let me know down in the comment section. I really appreciate any kind of feedback, positive or negative. ^_^

I hope this is helpful and enjoyable for you guys, i will blog again very soon

Product Review: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

I know im very late on the bandwagon of the Maybelline Fit Me foundations, but when i was at NYC last month, i finally caved in and bought it. It was the first time that i've bought drugstore foundation, and even though most reviews for the Fit Me foundation were positive, i wasn't sure if it was going to work for me, since i have very serious allergy towards some ingredient found in most sunblock/sunscreen. As it turns out, i had no allergy reaction from the foundation. which was good news to me, and after a few uses, i thought i'll write a review for it, and hopefully some of you guys can find it helpful.

that is the Foundation.
I bought both 125 and 210, and as it turns out, both colours don't really match my skin  perfectly. 210 is too dark, and the undertone of 125 is more pink than beige which doesn't work that well with my skin colour. However with a little bit of powder, blush and bronzer, I could make both colours work for me...It's just that unlike my MUFE and Laniege Foundation, there are extra steps that I have to do to make sure these two colours look natural on me.

I think what most people look for in a foundation is the coverage, and the best way to show it to you guys is through pictures
So here it is
If you wanna see bigger picture just click it
For the sake of the accuracy of the review I didn't retouch these photos in anyway, this way you guys can really see how the coverage is for the Fit Me Foundation.


So here are some info on the Fit Me foundation:
  1. On the Official website it claims and i quote: "FLAWLESS LETS THE REAL YOU COME THROUGH  BEYOND MATCHING: FRESH, BREATHING, NATURAL SKIN."
  2. It has Spf 18
  3. Claim to have light to Medium Coverage.
  4. There are 18 shades to choose from.
  5. Retail in Canada range from 5-9 dollars depends on different retail locations
Here is what my Thoughts are on The Fit Me Foundation.
Pros:
  1. It is relatively reasonably priced
  2. there are 18 shades, so more people can find their colour
  3. Easy to find, available in most drugstore location.
  4. Decent coverage if you don't have serious acne/skin problems
  5. It does have spf, so it give you some kind of protection of UV
Cons:
  1. It has no pump, so it's harder to control how much product to pour out each time.
  2. Because it has no pump, it is less hygienic.
  3. Good for Dry skin, but not that good if you have combination/oily skin
  4. It has a very strong fragrant scent, may not be pleasant to most people
  5. Doesn't last very long, at most for me was 4-5ish hour.  
For me, I wouldn't repurchase this foundation. I dislike fragrant scent in most product, especailly one that has a very strong scent. While is coverage is buildable, the finish is very dewy. I already have combination/sensitive skin, so on my skin it looks like i put oil on, and i had to use powder to mattify my face, which at the end makes it look like i have powder face...Now if you have dry skin, i think you might potentially like this foundation, because the finish is VERY dewy..like Super Dewy. I dislike the fact that the opening has no pump, and I am very clumsy, so it is very easy for me to pour too much product out and make a mess. However, i do think for the price, especially if you get it on sale for 5 dollars(which i did), it is definitely good foundation. If you are on a budget and need a decent foundation, this could potentially work well for you. I also really like the shape of the bottle, it is not very filmsy like some other drugstore foundations I've seen. I like the fact that it is made of glass and not plastic, feels more sleek and less cheap.

So my scores for the Maybelline Fit me Foundation are:
Packaging: 5/10 (Sorry, no pump is a big minus in my book)
Coverage: 6/10 (It's decent, but i've had way better ones)
Finish: 4/10 (I just don't like Super dewy finishes)
Overall: 6/10
Would I repurchase? NO

So that is my review of the Maybelline Fit me Foundation, i hope you guys enjoyed this post, and some of you find this helpful...keep in mind that everyone's skin is different, so just because this foundation didn't work for me doesn't mean it can't work wonders for you. If you guys have any questions please let me know down in the comment section i will get back at you as soon as i can.

I hope you guys enjoyed this, and i will Blog again very soon

Look For the Day - One Brand Look using Maybelline Products

I think alot of bloggers and beauty youtubers had done this kind of post/video b4. You know the case where they only use products from one brand to create a look.. That is excatly what i am doing today. All the products are from Maybelline, and very easy to find and most definitely affordable...and Chances are, you probably already have them at your make up arsenal.

So here is the look:
Likey Likey???
I

I luv this little palette, its sooo good and sparkley

Here are the steps:
  1. First of all, use the Painted Purple Colour Tattoo cream shadow and smudge it all over your eyelids
  2. Take the gel liner and liner your upper lash line and lower lashline. Rmbr to wing out little bit for an extra sultry look.
  3. Take 1 and pat the colour under your crease/fold and close to the lashline. then use the same colour and carefully pat the colour on the outer half of the lower lashlin as well.
  4. Take 2 and place the colour on the centre of the the eyelids.
  5. Take 3 and sweep the colour on the outter corner to soften the harshline, and rmbr to blend it well up to under the brown bone.
  6. Take 4 and apply the colour to the inner corner of the eye...remember to pat the colour and take gentel steps, because 4 is very glittery, and it is very easy to over doing it.
  7. Take 5, and apply it under the brow bone as a highlighting colour.
  8. Go and fix up any colour and you think need a bit more products.
  9. Go back and retrace your liner to intensify it, also tightlining on your upper and lower waterline.
  10. Curl your lashes and Apply mascara.
  11. Apply your favorite blush
  12. use your favorite lipstick and gloss and the look is done.
Here are all the Products I used
Okay i admit that i cheated on lipgloss, but thats only cuz i have no lipgloss from maybelline
know this doens't look all the dramatic, but trust me, my camera doesn't pick up all the glitter and shimmer in this look...while i would be brave enough to wear this out during day times. I'd much prefer wearing this when i go on a date night with the hubby. Purple in my Opinion are one of the best colour for brown eyes, along with green. I didn't put on any falsies with this look, but if you considering wearing this look out, you should seriously consider wear them..even a simple pair would automatically amp up the look.

If you guys are curious the lipstick shade i used was "Born with it" and the Blush colour is Candy Coral, the colour for the Maybelline eyeshadow palette is 10 Amethyst. The foundation shade i used was "Classic Ivory".

If you guys have any questions or request or anything you wanna ask me, just let me know down in the comment section. i'd love some feed back.

In the mean time i hope you guys enjoyed this and i will blog again very soon

Look for the Day - Spring is here

Since spring is here, i thought i do a simple look that is more colourful that is on par with the coming spring...also right now we are having gorgeous weather in Toronto...No more big winter jacket...i can actually open my window and don't feel cold~~~so yay for great weather

anywhoo, here is the look:
You like? Click if you wanna see large photos
So here are the close ups:
Eyes Open Natural Light
Eyes open with Flash
So ya, as you guys can see, the look is quite simple, but still colourful...i feel like spring make up is suppose to feel fresh, and no overdone...thats why i didn't bring the colour all the way up to my brow bone. For this look i used 4 colours, a pink, a shimmery pale gold, a light green for the outer corners, and a dark green for my lower lashline.

Here is what i used:
All the eyeshadows are from the Too faced, Enchanted Glamourland collection

So here are the steps:
  1. take 1 and pat the colour on the centre of ur eyelids, becareful not to bring it onto the inner corners
  2. take 2 and use a pencil brush to sweep the colour on the outer corner of your eyelids, and bring it down to your lower lashline just a little bit.
  3. take 3, and use a pencil brush line your lower lashline.
  4. take 4, and use it as a highlight, and also use 4 on the inner corners of your eye.
  5. take any brown liner, and line your upper lashline, and line your lower waterline.
  6. go back to 3 and define the colour on your lower lashline.
  7. go back with 1 and 2 if you need to fix it up abit
  8. apply a peachy blush to bring some colour on your complexion
  9. apply lipstick that has a warmer undertone like orange or peach.
  10. then you are done
So ya, here is my simple spring inspired look...hope you guys like it, and please give me some feedback and let me know what is your favorite thing to do during spring.

I hope you guys enjoy this post, and i will blog again very soon

Product Review: L'oreal Youth Code Serum Intense Daily Treatment

Hi girlies, sorry it took me long to write another post, but i simply have alot on my hand right now...But today, i am writing a product review on the L'oreal Youth Code Serum.

If you guys remember from one of my previous haul post, i received the serum from my bestie back at X-mas.I've using this serum for a good few months now, and not only i finished one bottle, i am on to the second bottle. So i think right now would be a good time to write a review for it, since i've got so much use out of it.

So here is the Product:

First of all, here are some general info of the prodcut
>the size is 30ml/1.0 FL. OZ
>the Claim is that the product has 10 years of gene research behind it
>On the official website it claims and i quote " Breakthrough GenActiv Technology™ helps increase skin's natural powers of regeneration, boosting skin's own capacity for recovery. The unique non-greasy formula melts on contact with skin, leaving a smooth finish"

The Price of the Product:
> varies from 30-20 CND depends on where you purchase it. It is cheaper in the US than here in Canada. I think in the US it price varies from 17-25 depends on the retailer.

My thought:
Personally i really like the product. I mean i'm already on 2nd bottle. What i like about it is that, it is so light weight, but at the same time it hydrates and moisturizes like it suppose to. What i also like about this product is that, it get absorbed into my skin very quickly. There is no greasy feeling after i apply it. Also, after i use the product for a while, i feel that my skin is smoother than before. As far as younger looking skin goes, I didn't really notice anything...I like the fact that this extra step in my skincare ensured that in the morning, my skin is not dry or patchy. Personally, my skin didn't react badly towards this particular item which is awesome. so in general i really like it, and i would recommend it.

The Not so fun fact about this product:
Well none of it happened to me, but this product does contain alcohol and fragrance, so some people might get a more serious reaction from it. I've also read reviews that this product broke them out like crazy, and give them horrible scars...I think it really depends on your skin type, because everyone has different skin. Also, there are people who think this product is a bit over priced. especially here in Canada, where after tax, it does go  as high as 30smth dollars.

What i would suggest for your guys would be that, if you could, get a sample and try it out for a couple days, see how it works for it, if it breaks you out, then you'll know it's not for you..and if it works well on you, and you think the product is worth the 18-30 bucks, then by all means go for it.

Final thoughts:
So in general, i just luv this product. I think it did help me with my scaring abit, though not much, but i luv the fact that it made my skin smoother. would i repurchase it? Of course, I am already on the 2nd bottle, and i bought Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Skincare Serum Corrector from the same Product line, i'll do a review on that once i start to use it. I've also purchase the eye cream as well, but hadn't use it yet. I will however steer clear of the face wash and the day cream and lotions. Mainly because the cream/lotions have heavy duty spf, and the face wash has exfoliating element which if you have sensitive skin, should steer clear of. Nevertheless, i really do love this product. Do i think it is a miracle serum? no, but it does what it suppose to do, so that's fine by my standard.

And alittle update on what's going on with me: well i've recently suffered a very serious break out from eating shell-fish (DAMN U RED LOBSTER, WHY U TASTE SO GOOD). If you guys don't already know, shell-fish in general breaks me out horribly, and sometimes they give me bad stomach problems. But i choose to ensure all the down side occasionally, because i luv Red Lobster and their Seafood Alfredo pasta...yummm...so thats wht i hadn't really did any make up looks, because i hate putting on make up when my skin is so effed up, it just makes it worth, but now that my skin is feeling better, i will try and post more spring look and looks using Naked 2 palette up... or swatches, if any of you guys are interested..so let me know down in the comment section..
So anyways, i will blog again very soon...




as always, with lotsa luv and xoxo
