[Review] Baby Lips by Maybelline - Part One

Today, while being at the Pharmacy, I stepped in front on these new little lipstick.

I picked one, out of curiosity and the cosmetic dept. seller told me they were quite popular (which I could confirmed by the display being quite empty).
My lips being quite a desaster since it’s winter in here, I’ve decided to get myself one and see the result.
So I took the Quenched one, the translucent one.

 

It says on the packaging that it moisturize the lips for 8 hours.
It also says that within 4 weeks of regular daily usage that your lips will have major visible change such as:

  • 82% visibly less dry.
  • 94% less rough lips.
  • 77% more supple lips.
  • 77% better looking lips.

A big must is that this lip balm contains a SPF 20.
Also, there’s many tints available, which makes it more interesting than normal lip balm! I took the translucent one for daily wear but I’m thinking about getting “Cherry Me” and “Peach Kiss”.
Texture is soft and isn’t sticky. 

 

Quenched 005 - Peppermint 010 - Cherry Me 015 - Grape Vine 020 - Pink Punch 025 - Peach Kiss 030

So here’s a picture of my lips:

I’ll post an other one at the end of the “testing” month!

Part One of Two of the review is now completed.

Notes

Always check your cosmetics before leaving the shop.
A little misadventure happened to me today. I went to the drug store to buy the new Aquarella palette from Lise Watier. I paid and got back home.At home, I opened the package and there was my surprise.A sad surprise. A new shattered palette.Went back to the store and got a new palette for free.(and two other palettes from their stock were shattered also)
I’m not trying to warn you about Lise Watier products, no, error like that happens with any brands, I’m just reminding you how important it is to check if it’s the right product in the package.You never know what could have happened, if the wrong color is in the package or like what happened to me, the makeup being shattered.That said, that palette is amazing!

[Review] My LUSH facial cleaning routine.

  • Bouffée d’air frais / Breath of fresh air: Toner
  • Herbalisme / Herbalism: Cleanser/Scrub
  • Miel Effronté / Brazened Honey: Fresh Mask 

These 3 products are part of my daily and weekly routine.

Breath of fresh air
I use this toner before I apply my moisturizing cream (Biotherm Aquasource).
This toner has the surname of “fresh sea spray” as it contains sea water and seaweeds. 
The odor really remind me of a early morning on the beach, when the water goes back down, with seaweeds laying on the sand~
This toner will hydrate your skin and giving it vitamins.
The how to apply and use this product are all written on the official website. 

Herbalism

I use this as a daily cleanser (I alternate with a Neutrogena one) AND it’s a vegan product!
It’s green color must not scare you!
What gives it’s green color is the Rosemary inside! 
This scrub/cleanser is the best for oily skin.
It’ll absorbs oil excess and also prevents acne.
It scrubs gently your skin to exfoliate it.
So it leaves your skin smooth, matte and clean!
I usually use this cleanser before going to work in the morning and using my Neutrogena one when I come back home/before bed.
Why? Because Herbalism is smooth for the skin, vegan and the smell isn’t strong so it ain’t offending as the drug store products in the morning!

Brazened Honey

This mask is probably the best thing on earth!
This fresh mask is the best one for all types of skin.
It’s not abrasive.
This mask is best used once every week, I personally use it every 4/5 days, otherwise I have some left when it hits the expiration date :(.
It exfoliates, removes blackheads, soothe irritated skin, smells great and leaves your skin smooth and with a nice glow.

That product cannot be bought on the website, as it’s a fresh mask and it needs to be conserved in the fridge.

So my weekly routine would be:

  1. Washing my face with my Anna Sui Foam Wash.
  2. Scrubbing with my LUSH Herbalism.
  3. Using my Brazened Honey mask from LUSH.
  4. Moisturize my skin with my Aquasource cream from Biotherm and Aquasource for the eyes’ cream.

 My daily routine would be the same, without step 3, which I, like a said, do twice a week.

Thanks you for reading me and I hope you enjoyed the review~
(and hope you’ll enjoy these products as much as me).

[Review] E.L.F - 24k: 32- Piece eyeshadow palette

The 24k collection got out just before the holidays.
This specific 32-piece palette have versatile colors and easy to wear.
Most of them are pigmented and some are a bit less, but with a primer they are more than ok.
Some colors are harder to pick, but just move your brush in it and it should break after a while. 

Here’s a swatch test I did, with my arm covered in foundation.
 
With a flash:

Without flash:
 

And here’s a simple look I achieved using this palette!

 

This small palette is a must to everyone.
To work day to an evening out with friends, this palette can help you create many looks that will suit your mood and look!

[Review] LUSH - Bath Bomb

This review is mainly about LUSH Bath Bomb in general and not only about the Satsumo one, even if this one is my favorite of all time.

Bath Bomb are not going to give you a bath full of bubbles, no, instead it gives your a nice scents AND feel really silky against your skin.
Boring bath are out of this world with Bath Bomb from LUSH!

Bath Bomb are mainly made of Sodium Bicarbonate, so when you put it under the water it dissolves really quickly and if you hold it in your hand, while it dissolves, it’ll have a cold feeling, like holding snow/ice.

 

Bath Bomb are the best for a relaxing funky bath~

We take every opportunity to make each bath a special occasion, not a mere part of our daily cleansing. The best way to enjoy bath time is to make it fragrant, relaxing and slow - a reward for making it through day. We think you’ll find that a Bath Bomb will suit the purpose (and we’re not just saying that because we invented them). Welcome them into your bath water and surrender your naked bodies into their fragrant clutches. -LUSH
