Shiseido Sports BB 


I haven’t had much luck with BB foundations that I have tried. Normally they do not give a nice coverage. I have found that with my skin they provide a light coverage which is ok for lighter makeup. I had just about given up on finding a BB that would give a medium coverage until now.

I was so excited to receive the Shiseido WetForceBB VoxBox from InfluensterCa complimentary for testing purposes. Shiseido has amazing products so I couldn’t wait to test their Sports BB.

First impression:

I was very pleased with the feel of the BB, it is light weight but gives a nice medium coverage. It is water resistant and SPF 50+ which makes it perfect for Summer wear.

Application:

My first time to wear the Shiseido Sports BB I used a silicon sponge for application. It went on smoothly and effortlessly. I love the coverage it gave. The next time I used an Oval brush and again it went on smooth and effortlessly. My skin looked flawless!

Stay power:

The Shiseido SportsBB has stay power. I wore it on a hot humid day and my makeup didn’t budge! It also provided protection from those beaming hot sun rays.

If you are wanting a light weight medium coverage BB you should think about trying Shiseido SportsBB!

Lashes by Lash Flawless

 

 

Hello lovelies. Today I want to talk about false lashes. Have you worn them? Have you gotten discouraged and given up on trying to apply them?

Today I am showcasing my favourite lash brand Lash Flawless use code Bellamj to save 10% on your order.

Why I like these lashes:

  • They are cruelty free
  • They are mink lashes
  • They are Gorgeous
  • They are easy to apply
  • They last longer than synthetic lashes
  • They are light weight and can be worn all day
  • They have a thin Cotten band

What is the difference between mink and synthetic. Synthetic lashes tend to be heavy and have a thicker band. They can feel uncomfortable on your eyes and the band can cause irritation. Mink lashes are light weight and are have a thin band.

How to apply:

 


Tips:

  • First trim lashes to fit your eyes (small sections at a time)
  • Apply a thin layer of glue
  • Allow the glue to get tacky
  • Apply in the middle of lash line then secure outer corner then inner corner

I love lashes and I wear them almost everyday. I have worn both synthetic and mink lashes. Hands down Lash Flawless are my favorite mink lashes.

Simple Glam Girls Lush Rose Gold Oval Brushes


Hello Beauties. Today I would like to talk about brushes. Have you noticed that oval brushes are the craze? Have you thought are they really worth all of that? Well let me tell you about these Gorgeous Lush Rose Gold Oval Brushes by Simple Glam Girl

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on these beauties to review. I have never used Oval Brushes before so I had no clue what to expect. My stipple brush seamed to work just fine for me.

My first impression: these brushes are beautiful! The design is perfect, they are light weight and so easy to work with. The bristles are super soft and close; which is a plus to give a smooth flawless foundation finish.

Let’s talk about foundation application with these gems. With my stipple I would use a fair amount of foundation and then blend with my beauty blender. I am so excited that with these Oval Brushes I use less foundation and have a fantastic application and blend (no beauty blender needed).

Contour like a pro! These gems are wonderful for contouring and blending.

Do you fight to get that perfect wing? I was overjoyed that I am able to get a sharp wing with these brushes!

Elf Haul


Hello Beauties. During the week of Black Friday Elf Cosmetics had some fabulous sales with free international shipping. I had to take advantage.

I had just recently tried Elf Cosmetics primer and was impressed with the quality to be so reasonably priced. The only thing I have found is it has an odd odour, but that just may be me because my sense of smell is extremely sensitive. Have any of you beaties found the smell odd?

Since I have been enjoying the primer I decided to give some of their other products a try.

The Packaging:

Elf definitely has the packaging down. It is simple but good quality. On the large eyeshadow palette the packaging is not flimsy (I was expecting a thin plastic package)

The Beautifully Bare all over Face Palette packaging is perfect. It is sleek and travel ready. Slip it into your makeup bag and your ready to go.

The Quality:

I was expecting the quality of the products to be so so. I wasn’t expecting the eyeshadows pigment to be very good and was expecting it to be muted. Well I was in for a pleasant surprise. The colours are beautiful and last. No reaply needed.


I also purchased the baked eyeshadow palette and swatches the colours so you could see how lovely they are. The top row is lighter colours which are perfect for base and highlight. The bottom row has vivid colours that are gorgeous for your crease and under eye.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have been wanting to try Elf cosmetics but concerned about the quality, I say give them a try!

Have a fabulous day beauties and I will be posting some looks I created using some of the elf products in a future post.

The Balm and Essence Cosmetics


Hello Beauties ❤️ I am sorry I have been MIA. As mentioned in an earlier post I received some pretty exciting products in my Ipsy October GlamBag. I have had the chance to create an eye look with 2 of the products and I am very pleased with them.


The first product is The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Blush. Yes I said blush, but this product is multi use! Two product for the price of one, who doesn’t like that!

The colour is quite nice. It is a pink/peach with a hint of highlight to give your cheeks a glow or your eyes a touch of shimmer. With outstanding pigment Hot Mama last all day. I love that this product is powerful enough to stay but light enough to not crease on the lids.

The second product is Essence Superfine Waterproof Eyeliner.

This is a lovely precision eyeliner. It allows you to create perfect cat eye/winged eye looks. It has a wonderful fine tip and it is waterproof! The price is very reasonable as well at $2.99 this is a must have in your beauty vault.

I hope you enjoyed this post loves! You can follow me on Instagram for makeup looks.

Bow to the Brow *Review of JCat Beauty perfect duo brow pencil*


Hello Beauties ❤️ I hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I want to talk about the brows. Do you tame your brows? Do you fill in your brows? I tweeze to manage mine and I also fill. In the past I used eyeshadow to fill and that worked fine for me. I have used brow pencils before, but wasn’t to keen on them.

I received Jcat Beauty perfect duo brow pencil in my Ipsy July GlamBag and wow it has made my brow game strong. I absolutely love the creamy velvety texture. It glides on with ease and it is retractable so Yay No sharpening. It also has a brow brush!


The dark brown matches my lashes perfect. It is very reasonably priced at $3.99, and comes in 8 shades.


The spoolie brow brush is soft and does a beautiful job of shaping those brows.


I love the angled tip of the liner, it gives you precision when it comes to the arch. It is also also long lasting and resist smudging.


I would say Jcat Beauty perfect duo brow pencil is a beauty must have at a very affordable price.

If you are interested in more info on receiving a GlamBag Just click Ipsy to check them out. I look forward to receiving my GlamBag each month and hopefully you will too.
Let’s keep in touch! You can follow me on Instagram or looks of the day 😊

I hope you have a wonderful weekends till next time….
