PostHeaderIcon My Beauty Product Must Haves!~~

Hiii.. I've decided to do a quick list on products I use daily. Majority of these products I use..really works well for me. I think I left out Lipstick and Lipglosses just because it depends on my mood which colors I'd like to wear. I hope these can become one of your favourite items.. on your list :)

FACE

PRIMER:Lancome La Base Pro - Perfecting Makeup Primer Soothing Effect Oil Free


  • I absolutly lovee this primer.. I used Smashbox before which is still reallly nice..but something about the Lancome one feels and look very smoooth! Maybe I'll do better review on this. I use this after my moisturizer before foundation and omg.. I just love it. All the pores and lines are reduced.. check out Lancome online for the ingredients and details on this product! Only problem is its about $46.00CAD for a 0.8. FL. OZ. (25mL) :(

FOUNDATION:Mac Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 * NC35

  • So far...this foundation is very light and does not loook cakey on me! I am also using NARS Sheeer Glow in Barcelona but the price is very pricey and it doesnt not have a pump..tooo mee I think the MAC is very convenient...it does come with a sponge..but I dont use it at all..I prefer using the MAC #131 Brush with this foundation..It is $39.00CAD for 10 g / 0.35 US oz

CONCEALER:Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Concealer SPF 10 * 03 MEDIUM

  • mmmmmmmmMMMMMM .. I have to say that I've finally found my favourite concealer!! I've used MAC which I find tooo thick and I don't ehh.. it's oka.. Smashbox HD concealer was good too..but it's in a tube which I tend to squeeze out alot of the product. I was kind debating whether to go with the EsteeLauder one or Lancome Effacerness but it's in a tube which I don't really like..I did like the coverage from their line also but I stick to the Estee Lauder. The only problem is that it comes in very few shades.. $24.00CAD for .24FL. OZ. LIQ./ 7mL

LOOSE POWDER:SMASHBOX HALO HYDRATING PERFECTING POWDER * Medium

  • This product is reallly nice because.. the way the package is done. Alot of loose powder everytime you open..you end up having wayyy tooo much product and it gets messy. To use the product you have to twist just a little bit to the right and some of the product comes out..very good if you travel! If you dont need that much coverage and just looking for soemthing that gives you that beautiful glow then I do recommennd this product! I have few blemishes so I just conceal and apply the powder on if I don't want to wear foundation.. It looks amazing when you give it a few minutes to set in.. When I do wear foundation and then apply this..it does NOTTT look cakey..You have to make sure you dont have tooo much of the product. The small brush that comes with it..is not bad but good for around the nose and other small areas. NOW the worst part - IT is about $70.00CAD :((( SUCKSSS butttt THERE IS ALOT OF PRODUCT 0.75 oz. / 21g sooo it will last you forever..this is why I didn't mind spending that much!! Before purchasing it I suggest you try it out first..I love the product but..then AGAIN I did read mix reviews on this:)

PRESSED POWDER:MAC BLOT POWDER PRESSED* Medium Dark

  • This is what I've been using for the longesstt time now! If you have oily spot ...I just dab the puff in the area and all gonee:) All you need to remember with this is to make sure you change your puff frequently.. All that nasty oil that absorb into the puff and back to your face will cause you to breakout. It happen to me because I didn't know that I was suppose to change it from time to time. It's good because you don't need to always have a brush around.. and you don't neccessary need to apply tooo much! $27.50CAD for 12 g / 0.42 US oz

BRONZER:MAC MINERALIZE BLUSH * THE SOFT MEOW

  • This is my first bronzer~ To be honest I've started to use bronzer when I had realized that my face look chubbier so I wanted to slim my face. I know it sounds silly but .. yah then I got hooked on it. I love how the color is not tooooo orange and not so obvious. It's nice..and I can jsut wear this alone or with just a bit of blush :) $26.50CAD 3.5 g / 0.11 US oz

BLUSH:MAC BEAUTY POWDER * BRIAR ROSE

  • This is my all time favourite blush..This is limited edition...:( but i've looked around for a dupe and they say that between Well Dressed and Pink Swoon! I love this soo much because it's very pigmented and long lasting. The packaging is wonderful too and it has a little mirror inside. It seems like there is more product and hopefully this will last me a long time:D I use it everyday!! $30.00CAD this is 10g / 0.35 US OZ!!! woo lots of product!

OTHER:ESTEE LAUDER SIGNATURE 5-tone shimmer powder for eyes, cheeks, face * 02 BRONZE SHIMMER

  • This is my all time favourite highlighter/ shimmer:D I use this on my brown bone..on the bridge of my nose..on the innier corner of my eyes..just above my cheek.. pretty much the name says it all.. I can use this anywhere. If you're tan I say this will loook lovelyyyy on you! Unless you like the MATTE look than avoid this hehe..:D $36.00CAD 10g / 0.35 OZ
EYES / EYEBROWS

PRIMER#1:URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PRIMER POTION

  • I can't live without this product!! Seriously this is awesome..few years back when I first started to wear eyeshadow..all my eyeshadows will crease soooo bad. I didn't know anything about using a base but after I've discovered this...I even wear it without eyeshadows. It does in a weird way brightens up my eyelid and I just LOVE it! The only problem I have with this is when I think I'm almost done but I can still manage to get some product out the next day... I know that you can warm it up and cut it open and all that stuff but yah I just hope they change their packaging..its a pain in the wooop wooop :P $22.00CAD for 10mL 0.34US OZ

PRIMER#2:MAC Paint Pot * Bare Study & Rubenesque

  • Oka..So this is my primer number 2..The reason why that is...it is because I can just grab a concealer brush and it is sooo easy to use..Better packaging than the UDPP. The good thing with these is that I can also wear it alone but these has a bit of shimmer which really look nice :) If I know I'm going to go out clubbing or something where I know I'm going to be really sweaty and all... I wear UDPP + my paint pot over it then eyeshadow..IT last soooo long! I picked Bare Study because it is almost similar color to the UDPP just with a bit of shimmer and Rubenesque which is a golden pink color because it was the first one I bought and I love the color! $20.00CAD 5g / 0.17 US OZ

EYELINER:MAC FLUIDLINE * BLACKTRACK

  • So.I'm still on a mission to look for the perfect pencil liner..but even if I have a pencil I still love my fluidline. They don't smudge on me! I've also heard Bobbi Brown Gel Liner is also goood.but haven't got my hands on them yet! I've tried Smashbox but they smudge on me...This is my alllll time favourite liner! I also have Macro-Violet and it is very pretty! $18.00CAD 3g / 0.10 US OZ

MASCARA:LANCOME HYPNOSE DRAMA * EXCESSIVE BLACK & NYX DOLLEYE WATERPROOF * BLACK

  • There is two product listed up there because I have to use two separate ones. For my top lashes I use the Lancome Hypnose Drama ..which I am seriously in love with! It makes my lashes really thick and it also separates them!! Does not flake at all and it is really BLACK. haha.. For my bottom lashes I love using NYX dolleye WATERPROOF.. It really does the work..I never knew I had bottom lashes until I use her. I've also noticed that when you first buy it..it goes on really nice..and if you notice that your bottom lashes starts to flake then thats when I know I need to get a new one. The formula I guess its more dry? They BOTH works really well for me..You can look at the picture above thats MY lashes:D! Lancome Hynose Drama $31.00CAD 0.22 OZ / 6.5 mL -- NYX Dolleye Waterproof $6.99CAD-$10.00CAD 8g / 0.28 OZ

EYESHADOW#1:SMASHBOX MASQUERADE EYE PALETTE

  • This is such an amazing palette!! I use this everyy time I wear eyeshadow..Which is almost everyday. I slab on MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque and using the plum/ navy blue color from this palette just look absolutely stunning!! I'm thinking I might pick up another one :| The packaging is also great! The only complaint that I have with most or any eyeshadow palette is that something when I pick up the dark color it somehow gets into the other eye shadows.. So I try my best not to be to rough:) I believe this was about $38.00CAD 13.37g / 0.47 OZ. which is an amazing deal!!

EYESHADOW#2:MAC Eyeshadow * CARBON

  • I know you guys are prob wondering why I have mm one eyeshadow here.. Well because I love the SMASHBOX EYESHADOW PALETTE soooo much that I just need to pair it with carbon on the out corner of my eyes. I love my eyeshadow to be dark..always got to have some black somewhere...This black eyeshadow is the only one that doesn't have a fallout for me..:D You can get these in refill for about $13.00CAD or ones with a compact..mine is from the MAC Venomenous Villain Collection which was $18.50CAD 1.5g / 0.05 US OZ... I bought the one in a compact because I don't always need my MAC Palette with me..I prefer having my Carbon Individually Compact =D

EYEBROWS POWDER/PENCIL:MAC Eyeshadow * CHARCOAL BROWN & MAC Eyebrows * Lingering

  • The reason why I have two for eyebrows is because I use two. hahaha.. I put a bit of UDPP all over my brows then I go over with the shadows and just pencil the arch of my eyebrows! MAC Eyeshadow is $17.50CAD 1.5g / 0.05 US OZ and the MAC Eyebrows is $18.00CAD 0.09g/ 0.003 US OZ...which is very little..I ran out of these pretty quick alone since I do it everyday..but when I pair it with the eyeshadow ..it seems to last me alot longger:D!
LIP

Lip Balm:DIOR ADDICT LIP GLOW COLOR REVIVER BALM

  • I've already did a quick review on my previous post... She is still fairly new to the family..BUT I know I CANT live without her!!!! ahha.. She makesmy lip very soft and adds a tint of my natural lip color. You can read my preious post. I lover her but she so damn expensive. $35.OOCAD 3.5g / 0.12 OZ

Lip pencil:ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR STAY-IN-PLACE * 01 PINK & * 08 SPICE

  • These are my everyday lip pencil. If I don't wear lipstick..I just wear the dior glow and just line my lip with these two. The 01 PINK is verynice pink goes on smooth and the 08 SPICE it is the shade of my lip.. which you can see by the picture I am almost done using SPICE. What I love about them is that it comes with a lip brush so you can brush them on evenly! It is about $21.00CAD
=]
There you have it!! These are all my favourite products SOOO far. It's a pretty long post wow.. But yah I hope some of these can help you out..Mmm keeeppp in mine with the color I've chosen is just a personal preference!!

PostHeaderIcon DIOR Addict Lip Glow - Color Reviver Balm!~~

Hiiiiii

Few nights ago.. I was at Dior counter looking at their Montaigne Collection for spring 2011…and omg I really like everything!!!! I think their promo picture thing almost look like their winter ones..but I'm not so sure.. So the lady at the counter asked me if I need helped..and of course I end up just saying I was oka and just looking at their lipsticks..so she seems like she was bored and just want to help me pick colors.. Then, I told her I wanted a color that is pretty for everyday..but because there was soo many option she asked me if I've tried their LipGlow Color Awakening Lipbalm. I said..what? No...I haven;t..I had a bit of lipliner and gloss on so I wiped it off..while she sanitize the lipbalm..Too me I waas like..its just lipbalm...So then she says this is AN AMAZING PRODUCT..if youre looking for something for EVERYDAY...this is it! She was explaining to me how it works...and AS SOON AS I APPLIED IT TO MY LIP............ I didn't ask her anything about the product...I just told her..Yup..I will go with that, for today. Straight to the $$CASH Register! I heard $29 something..so I gave her $30 something...than she said..oh..just about $10 more..so IN MY HEAD I WAS LIKE HOLLLI SHNAP THIS IS $39 Something??? BUT I DIDNT HESITATE..AND JUST GAVE HER my monay..That's HOW MUCH I loved it! That's the story of how I got her! Creepy huh..haha
  • AVAILABLE AT: WWW.SEPHORA.COMWWW.DIOR.COM, Or Visit Any Dior Counter
  • PRICE: $35CAD
  • VALUE FOR PRICE: 2/5
  • EASE OF USE: 5/5
  • PACKAGING: 5/5
  • MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 4/5
  • OVERALL RATING: 4/5

MY LIP GLOW..

  • *I loveeee the packaging..it's so girly and cuteee!!!

IT SAYS:

  • "Dior Addict Lip Glow responds to the color chemistry of your lips to create a shade that is uniquely yours. Smooth it on to moisturize, add sun protection, and enhance your natural lip color. " - A color-awakening lip balm with SPF 10 -- Sephora Site.

PROS

  • It's very moisturizing!!
  • Just one swipe and you get that nice rosy pink color!
  • Use very little amount of the product
  • Last for a pretty good amount of hours
  • Seems like a lipstain for me..but BETTER
  • Makes your lip look and feel very healthy and natural
  • Really easy to use and doesn't require a brush...or using dirty fingers to apply..


CONS

  • Too Pricey for lipbalm!!!!!
  • Too Expensive..ahah
  • If apply too much it will kinda bleed
  • Depending on the color or pigmentation of your lip..this lipbalm really just enhance and even out the color of your natural lips..so not everyone might be getting that same rosy pink color.

OVERALL:

  • I'm really happy with this purchase! It seems like this product is one of my must haves. Everyone at work knows I love using lipstain under my lipstick..etc But this..I dont really need a mirror to use it.. It's simple..just use like a chapstick but don't OVER apply..or else it can look like it is bleeding outside your lips!! My only complaint about this lipbalm is the PRICE!!! If interested.. I will have to let you guys know when I'm almose done to see if it is worth it..mose chaptick I use..I apply alot..jsut to get the lip moist..AND I finish it fast... but this one I wouldn' t have to use it tooo much!! I have a feeling that TOO me right this is worth EVERY penny haha... I'm probably going to have to look online to see if there is a cheaper alternatives..BUT right now..THIS IS WHAT I'M GOING TO STICK WITH!!:D

MY LIP WITH THE PRODUCT :]

WOULD I...

  • RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT? Yes, but I would suggest to try it at the counter before purchasing just because you might not like the color it turns out.. I read somewhere where someone tried but I guess their undertone is different becayse their color turned out to be a fuchsia color..which was not what they wanted!
  • PURCHASE AGAIN? YES..I definetly WILL!!!:D
Amazing lipbalm....I stopped using my MAC Lipstain Marker in Stylesetter..This MAC Stain was something I actually really loved alot...I wore it pretty much all the time with any pink.and reds lipcolors!! I hope this review.. helped! I have been using it since I've bought it and reallyyyy I just got to have it..!!!!:D
Also..the previous post..I also had it on so you can check out the color!~

Enjoy!~~

PostHeaderIcon My New OPI and Hair Color =]

Hi!~

I just want to share with you guys my two new OPI Nail Lacquers to my nail colors collection ~~





Pandamonium Pink and Second Honeymoon! ~~~
These two are such a cute colors! The Pandomanium just need about two coats and the color come out just like the bottle..and the Second Honeymoon when you apply it I've noticed that you have to wait for it to dry a bit before layering another layer because its very very sheer!! I love them alot and I'm sure they will get along very well with the other nail colors in the box!

Another thing I wanted to share with you guys is my NEW hair color! CINNAMON...hehe:D I colored it about almost two weeks now??




The Joico Leave-in is the besttttt...The Fat Hair Pomade i got it for bf..and yyah the box says MEDIUM ASH BLONDE..Since I have a really dark hair before I needed to bleach it first and then appply the Medium Ash Blonde over it after... It tuerned out yellow.. orangy.. I used Medium ash to try to get the orangy yellow looking hair color out..which my hair then turned into this Cinnamon color..I really like it! I love blonde hair..but I decided toooo keep this color! Here it is...Don't mind..theres quite a bit of photo haha... I haven't taken pictures lately of myself..so I kinda got carried away:D







This was taken today. I was heading out to go eat and watch The Rite..but we missed it.. I really like the color so I might keep this for a while..until I get bored of it.. :D Let me know what you guys think~~

xoxo Cindy!~
