[Jolse] NAKEUP FACE Stress 0 Toner 500ml Review

Hello everyone! It has been way too long since my last post! Hee hee. Things have been quite busy now that I am officially studying again for the MCAT 😭

Anyways, I have a special review for you guys!

I, the one person that never gets picked for any giveaways, was miraculously picked and was gifted this NAKEUP FACE Stress 0 Toner from Jolse.com!

I have been an avid fan of Jolse.com for a while now and I was so thankful to have been selected as their reviewer.

I also am a HUGE fan of toners! I have tried my fair share of toners and I was very excited to try this toner out.

This is the NAKEUP FACE Stress 0 toner. It contains 90% Sea Water and it claims to be a calming, balancing toner for smooth, refreshed skin. It also claims that it is suitable for all ages. It comes in a clear see-through plastic bottle and honestly the packaging is so up my alley 😍😍 its just so chic and simple heehee

It also is quite big. I mean there is a LOT of product! 500ml! The dispenser isn’t too bad. The hole is small enough that not a lot pours out but big enough to get a decent amount out to apply.

Clear and very much water-like πŸ’§

The consistency of this toner is similar to the Thayers Witch Hazel toner in that it is very watery. These types of toners are very nice for layering. Layering means to apply the toner more than once to saturate the face.

This toner is unscented which is very good for sensitive skin. I am usually quite keen to scents, I mean I could smell the aloe from the Unscented Thayers toner, but this Stress 0 toner has no scent that I can detect.

Watery πŸ’¦

It really feels like I am just putting on water but unlike water, it leaves my skin feeling really replenished and moisturized. I was very surprised.

When I first applied this toner, it was on a very cold day and my skin was quite dehydrated.

I layered this toner on three times and my face seemed to just drink up the product and retain that moisture. I was very intrigued so that night, I didn’t put on any moisturizer but layered on this toner five times (which I know is excessive) just to see if my face would feel tight or dry throughout the night.

To my surprise, my face felt fine. I mean it didn’t feel hydrated like it would have been with a sleeping mask, but my face felt like I had slept with a light moisturizer on! It didn’t feel tight, I didn’t see any dry patches!

I know I haven’t tried ALL the watery toners that is on the market but so far, out of all the ones that I have tried, this is definitely the best watery toner! I was so blown away at how it kept my face hydrated that I would reach for this constantly verses my other toners.

Very hydrating 🚰

And since it is safe for sensitive skin, it did not break me out at all. Even when I had an open wound (due to a popped pimple πŸ˜‘ ) it didn’t sting! I received this product as a gift from Jolse.com around March 6th or so and I have been using it religiously ever since.

On cold mornings, I would layer this toner on at least 3 times and then go in with a daily moisturizer and my face feels hydrated all day! I can definitely see myself just use this toner on those lazy summer days without a moisturizer as well!

I highly recommend this toner if you are looking for a good layering toner!

*Disclaimer: I was not paid by Jolse or by NAKEUP FACE to do this review. The product was sent to me as a gift for an honest review.

Thank you so much for reading if you got this far and I hope to write to you soon!

Bye!! πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Monthly Makeup Commitment: December 2018

It is already December. Gosh. Time flies so fast. I’m pretty sure I just posted my November one and now it’s already December. And then soon it will be 2019! Goodness, gracious! Welp. Let’s get started!

The theme of this month is simple bling haha. I wanted to keep my eye look pretty simple and basic but with a lot of bling and glitter since it is the Holidays. I usually don’t have themes for each month, I just go with the flow but I thought it’d be nice to have an actual fixed makeup look or theme for each month…we’ll see if I feel like this next year but πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

As per usual, I will start with the face makeup.

I will be using my littleΒ MAC Strobe Cream. This was a sample size that I got and have forgotten about. I’ve always been meaning to try it but I forgot about it and so now I am using it haha…

IMG_1807
MAC Strobe Cream

This is a pearly base product that leaves the skin with a slight pearly tint. It doesn’t show up too much (maybe because I use a pretty small amount). I really like this product. It goes on like a moisturizer and it isn’t too greasy so it sinks into the skin very well. It does leave a slight glow to my skin. I don’t really know if this acts as a primer to prolong my face makeup though…

Moving on to concealer! I really want to see the end of this concealer. I know I should rotate to the NARS concealer that I have but I have hit pan on this concealer and I am very adamant on finishing it. This is the Glossier Stretch Concealer in Light.

IMG_1808
Glossier Stretch Concealer in Light

This is a very light to medium (if you apply more layers) hydrating concealer. I say hydrating because it is very sheer and watery. It isn’t greasy at all. I use a damp sponge to blend it out on my face which makes it super glowy and hydrating. But when I am too lazy to go to the bathroom to wet my sponge, I will just use the dry sponge. But the concealer is pretty hydrating so it still blends out well and leaves a slightly dewy look to the skin. It isn’t as dewy as using a damp sponge, but it still is dewy.

It doesn’t have a full coverage like it does not cover my dark circles at all. I still like it because though it doesn’t cover up my skin, it gives the skin a more even look to it. Like my skin but better and healthier.

Next is powder. I want to keep my face pretty dewy, so I have only been powdering around my hairline and jawline, like the outskirts of my face. This is to prevent my bronzer from being all splotchy. I will use theΒ Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.Β 

IMG_1809
Rimmel Stay Matte

This powder is a very nice powder. Nothing much to say. Very matte. Very nice.

Moving on to bronzer. Now, I am still using my broken and very savagely filledΒ too cool for school art class by Rodin. I did want to just toss it because it literally looks like gravel and it breaks my heart everytime I open it. But, I don’t want to waste it since there is quite a lot of product left. 😭

It hurts my heart. I know you’re supposed to fix it with rubbing alcohol but I didn’t have any so I just used my toner. And I think it somehow sort of changed the formula. It isn’t as pigmented as it used to be and it definitely isn’t as soft as it used to be. But I kind of like that it isn’t too pigmented so it gives more room for errors.

Next is blush. I will be using myΒ Benefit Dandelion blush. This is a soft pink blush with a slight shimmer.

This blush is a cult favorite and for a very good reason. I don’t typically like pink blushes but this one is very soft and kind of mimics how my cheeks get normally so I like it. When I am kind of dark in the summer though, this color doesn’t show up too much.

For my highlight, I will be using an oldie but a goodie. This is theΒ e.l.f. cosmetics baked blush in Pinktastic. This shade is too light to be a blush but it is the perfect amount of pink sheen to work as a highlighter.

IMG_1814
e.l.f. cosmetics Baked Blush in Pinktastic

I’ve had this for a very long time and I really love using this. It is very finely milled and so it doesn’t emphasize the texture on my face. It leaves a pinky, pearly sheen to my face and I really like it.

Here is a swatch of the bronzer, blush, and highlighter in natural daylight.

IMG_1827

Moving on to eyes!

For eyebrows, nothing has changed since the lastΒ month. I will be using the three brow products I mentioned in the last month’s post.

These are Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Powder Eyebrow & 3D Nose in #03 Ash Brown, Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Gel Eyebrow Liner in #01 Natural Brown,Β and Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Coloring Eyebrow #04, Natural Brown.Β 

I really like these Kiss Me products. It lasts all day long and it doesn’t budge! I like the powder product just to fill in the sparse areas of my brows and I use the pencil to outline my brows. The coloring browcara is very good and tinting my brow hairs to a bit of a softer color. I highly recommend the Kiss Me products, they are very good.

For eyeshadows, I will be using three products.

The first product that I will be using (and hoping to finish) theΒ Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Wattles.

IMG_1820
Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Wattles

This is a really nice pink brown color. I just sort of use this shade as an all over lid color for a simple, quick, daily look. It is really a nice color to use on the go. I love traveling with this shade because honestly, this color is all you need. I have hit pan on this color a long time ago and I really want to finish it. I think I can…

And in case I do run out of Wattles, I wanted a backup eyeshadow to use. So as a backup I will be using theΒ IBY Three’s Company eyeshadow trio.Β I actually used this in my last year’s December M.M.C.

This is a very pigmented, easy to use trio. I have hit pan on the cream and the brown shade because I have been using this trio every time I had to travel. The palette is so small and the three colors go very well together to create an easy everyday neutral brown look.

So this will be my backup eyeshadow when I run out of Wattles.

And for the bling look, I will be using my favorite glitter product:Β Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma.

IMG_1821
Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma

This is a gorgeous champagne liquid eyeshadow with a lot of silver glitters. It adds a very festive look to the eye and I will just dot the applicator on to my lids a couple of times and spread the product with my pinky. When this product sets, it does not move so you have to work quite fast. Every time I use this, my heart glows because it is so pretty.

Here is a swatch of the three eyeshadow products in natural daylight:

fullsizeoutput_333

For eyeliner, I am still using myΒ Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown.Β And for mascara, I will be using the infamous,Β Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Super Waterproof Mascara in #01 Jet Black. That’s a mouthful.

IMG_1822
Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara and Kat Von D Tattoo liner in Mad Max Brown

This mascara is so good! I can see why so many people like it. The wand is perfect for Asian eyes! It is small enough to get through every lash and the mascara itself is a very light texture that coats the lashes very well. The formula is light and so it keeps my lashes curled all day and the best part. It does not smudge.

Over time, every drugstore mascara I used, left a smudge on the lower portion of my eye. Even my favorite L’Oreal Lash Paradise would eventually leave a black smudge on my lower lash line and near my eye bags at the end of the day (or even within a few hours if I am super oily). But this Kiss Me mascara! OMG. I am converted. πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Now on to the lips!

I will rotate between four lip products. The first product is a tint that I will use as a base lip product. It is also quite easy to apply and use on the go or just on the daily. It is theΒ Colorgram Thunder Bolt Lip Lacquer in #5 Crush on Pink.

IMG_1826
Colorgram Thunder Bolt Lip Lacquer in #5 Crush on Pink

This is a nice daily pink shade. It is a neon shade but if you apply one layer it is really a brighter version of my lips but better. It sort of lightens up the face and adds a nice glowy look. I will link my complete review on the Colorgram Lip LacquersΒ here.

Another tint that I have been loving and have been using for the past couple of days is thisΒ Peripera Ink the Velvet in #14 Beauty Peak Rose.

IMG_1823
Β Peripera Ink the Velvet in #14 Beauty Peak Rose

This is another MLBB lip but this one is much more on the rosy side. It is a corally rose shade and I really love this shade. It reminds me of the lip colors that Jennie from Blackpink wears. She really likes the peachy, salmony lip colors and this is a pretty similar color to the ones she likes.

The formula of this product is really nice. It is a bit thicker in texture than the Colorgram’s but it goes on pretty velvety and leaves a nice matte finish. It isn’t uncomfortable at all. It glides on to the lips pretty well and lasts for a long period since it is a tint.

Next is the mini lipstick sample of theΒ Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.Β I got this mini lipstick a long time ago from Sephora, I think it was a birthday gift or something like that.

IMG_1824
Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

I have only a small amount of it left. It is a gorgeous deep rose shade that has been living in my purse. I decided to get it out and really make it a priority to use it all up.

The last lip option will be a deep red lip. This isΒ MAC Cosmetics Lee Hi.

IMG_1825
MAC Cosmetics Lee Hi

This is a deep warm red that screams Christmas. I will definitely be wearing this lipstick on Christmas. I love this color and it really does pain me that this lipstick is a limited edition lipstick. I wish they bring this color back. 😭😭

Here is a picture of the swatches in natural daylight:

IMG_1830

And that is it for December 2018 M.M.C. I will be filming a routine video to go along with this post soon 😊😊

Thank you so much for reading if you got this far and I hope you have a wonderful December and a wonderful end of the year!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Review

It has been a hot minute since my last post. Even though my latest post was packed with a lot, I mean, a LOT of products, I still managed to purchase some more haha…RIP Bank account.

Sephora had a VIB sale where everything was 15% off for a few days and so I purchased the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask that was on my wishlistΒ  for a while.

I don’t really do one product reviews on my blog but I kind of want to do more of these. Heehee. So here it goes!

This is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. This has been quite raved about in the beauty community in Korea as well as in the US.

You can purchase this onΒ Sephora as well as other Korean Cosmetic stores online likeΒ Jolse. They have four flavors, Original (bubble gum berry), Grapefruit, Vanilla, and Apple lime. I got the original flavor and it smells divine. I think on Sephora they sold out of the other flavors…

It retails for $20.00 on Sephora and $17.50 on Jolse.

This product is a leave-on lip mask that is suppose to soothe and moisturize the lips overnight, giving your lips a supple renewal the next day.

 

The main ingredients that is listed on the back of the bottle are Berry Mix Complex and Vitamin C. On the Sephora’s website it also explains that it has an exclusive Moisture Wrapβ„’ technology which has hyaluronic acid and other minerals that helps form a protective film over the lips to lock in the moisture.

 

It goes on like a regular lip balm onto the lips and it does feel quite heavy…as in you can definitely feel it on the lips. My lips have been chapped so much lately and I saw results right after the first use.

Even though it looks pink in the jar, it actually goes on quite clear on the lips.

The first time I used it I didn’t know how much product was appropriate and so I just took a big scoop (the large scoop in the middle) which ended up being too much…But the next day my lips were all supple and plump. When I washed off the product in the morning while washing my face, it exfoliated all the chapped, flaky, skin on my lips and left it soft and smooth. I absolutely love this stuff. And it has quickly established a stable part in my night-time skincare routine. Stable as in permanent.

At first I was worried that because the product came in a jar, it wouldn’t be hygienic. But it comes with this adorable little spatula.

 

The little pink spatula has a rubber end that really scoops the product out with ease. It is also very easy to clean because of its rubbery material. It also has a pointy tip that allows the application process to be quite precise. It glides across my lips and the pointy edge also allows me to line my upper lip every easily.

 

This little spatula is so cute and hygienic. It isn’t 100% hygienic but it is definitely better than using my fingers to scoop the product out. I just make sure to wipe down the spatula before and after I use the product.

 

So let’s lists some pros and cons with this product: Starting with the cons!

Cons:

  • It is quite sticky
  • The price is high for a little bottle
  • Not that hygienic since it is in a jar

Pro:

  • It softens the lips
  • It moisturizes overnight
  • It smells amazing
  • It comes with a mini spatula
  • It soothes the lips
  • It exfoliates the lips
  • It also lasts all throughout the night!

I can easily say that the contents in that little bottle justifies the price. Definitely.

Here is also a picture of the consistency of the product on my hand.

 

I hope you enjoyed this review. I had fun reviewing it and honestly I look forward to my night-time skincare routine because of this product.

Thanks for reading this if you got this far and I will hopefully post soon πŸ˜€

Recent Empties 2018

Hello! Long time no post!!

Now that I am officially unemployed, (WOOP WOOP) I have more time to post on my blog now!

It’s been a hard and very busy year so far and I have used up a lot of products. So lets begin!!

Sorry for the quality of this first picture..heehee I took this picture in my office while I was working so the lighting was terrible. But anyways, the first item that I used up this year was this Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Cream in Avocado Olive & Basil scent.

@letsgoctina Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado Olive & Basil Hand Cream
Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado Olive & Basil Hand Cream

The soap in our building bathroom literally stripped all the moisture and oil from the hand and so every time I washed my hand, my hands felt so tight and dry to the point where it would hurt. And so I had this hand cream in my pencil bag and it literally saved my hands. It was very moisturizing and absorbed into the skin pretty fast for a thick cream. The smell was a bit strong but not as strong as Bath and Body works lotion. It smelled clean and I really liked it. I got it as a gift a long time ago and though I would not spend the money to purchase it for myself, I think it would make a great gift to give to someone.

The next product that I used up is mascara. This is probably my favorite mascara from the drugstore. It is a bit more pricier than the other mascaras but I think it is really worth it. It is the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise in Waterproof. It does give my lashes volume and also makes them seem longer than they really are. It lasts all day and most importantly, keeps my lashes curled all day long!

@letsgoctina
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Waterproof

The only bad thing about this mascara is that the brush head is a bit big for my eye shape. I do have small eyes and if I’m not careful, I will either poke my eye or get some mascara onto my eyelids. But it is slightly smaller than the too faced born this way mascara and so I actually like this one better than that one. Also, even though this is a waterproof mascara, it does transfer a bit to the areas under my lower lash line. But this is inevitable for me since I do have very oily face and eyes. All waterproof mascaras give me this effect. Is there a waterproof mascara for oily skin that do not transfer onto the lower eye area? If so, please let me know. I need it.

This next product is one of my holy grail items. It is the Elta MD Skincare UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 Facial Sunscreen.Β Every drugstore sunscreen I have tried have broken my face out and have clogged my pores. I was so frustrated because I knew how crucial and important wearing sunscreen was. I have oily and acne prone skin during the summer times and living in Texas under the blazing summer sun, I desperately needed sunscreen. Then Liah Yoo, a skincare guru on YouTube did her favorite sunscreen video for oily skin. One of the product she recommended was this Elta MD product.

@letsgoctina
Elta MD Skincare UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 Facial Sunscreen

In her video, she said that this was one of the products that dermatologists recommended to oily, acne prone skin. This product has Niacinamide and Zinc Oxide, two common chemicals that treats acne as well as prevents future acne breakouts. I was hesitant at first because this sunscreen is around $32 for 1.7 oz. It is pretty pricey but I am so glad I made this purchase. I freaking love this sunscreen. In my opinion, it is so worth every penny.

It goes on like a lotion and really absorbs into the skin. It just feels like I am wearing a moisturizer and it also does not have that typical SPF sunscreen scent. And most importantly, IT DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT. The Niacinamide and Zinc Oxide was said to prevent any future breakouts and I have noticed that my skin broke out less. I mean I still got those huge pimples during that time of the month but other than that, my skin has been behaving so nicely since I have used this. And because it is quite moisturizing, during the summer, I just skip my moisturizer and go straight to this product. Surprisingly, it also lasted quite a while since I got this product around July of 2017. I finished using it up around March of 2018 so yeah it did last almost 8 months for one bottle.

As soon as I ran out of this product, I immediately repurchased it. I get mine from Amazon and I cannot recommend this product enough. If you have oily and acne prone skin and are wanting to invest in a good sunscreen, I highly recommend this one!

This next product is quite unfortunately made its way into the trash. This is the Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in the shade Get Leid. I have used this product a lot while I was working at the clinic because it was so easy to apply while commuting. I would do my makeup in the car and I have swiped this product with a very dense brush onto my cheeks. When I am in a hurry, I usually only put on blush, mascara, and lip so this product was used everyday for 10 weeks.

This poor guy however started to crumble off. At first I was confused and tried to press it into the pan since the product texture is malleable and quite spongey/creamy like.

@letsgoctina
Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Get Leid

But I guess this product was getting old or something…When I tried to press it into the pan, it started to crumble and eventually hardened to a crumbly powder. It felt kind of like those crumbling pieces of dried play-do, if you know what I mean…

Even though the pigment was still being transferred onto my fingers, I just decided to toss it cuz frankly, it grossed me out. RIP blush. May you rest in peace…in my trash.

Would I purchase this blush again? No probably not. I think Colourpop makes great products but personally I much prefer my blush to be either just powder or just cream. Not something in between.

The next product is something that is not unfamiliar in my empties post. This is the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing WaterΒ with the blue cap that removes waterproof makeup as well. I really like this. This is my second bottle I believe and it just removes my makeup so easily.

@letsgoctina
Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water

It does have an oily layer to remove the waterproof makeup but it does not leave an oily residue like the Neutrogena makeup removers. This bottle also lasts a while as well and so I recommend this one over the Neutrogena.

The next product is Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes. This product was actually from Costco, it came in a huge bulk box and my mom bought it to try and she also gave me a pack. This was…alright.. like ehhh. It didn’t really remove all of my makeup and it did kind of stink my face so I usually just used it to remove my lip colors or to just wipe down my phone because phones are dirty af.

@letsgoctina
Kirkland Daily Facial Wipes

I wouldn’t recommend this for sensitive skin types because it does sting. And also it is not as wet as other wipes like the Simple or Neutrogena ones from the drugstore so I think that was why it didn’t really remove my makeup. But its the perfect amount of wetness to wipe down your phone. hehe

I will not purchase this again but will use it to wipe down my phone and hands if my mom buys the box again from Costco. But my mom didn’t like it as well so…

This next product was actually in one of the product in myΒ Korean Skincare + Sephora + MAC Cosmetic Haul. It is the Son & Park Beauty Water.

I believe this is the best seller from Son & Park. I have mixed feelings about this though. Many like it because it is so versatile to use. Some people use it as a makeup remover, toner, or just a very thin moisturizer. For me, I used it as a toner because it did not remove my makeup, it also did not keep my face moisturized.

@letsgoctina
Son & Park Beauty Water

It does not have any harsh chemicals and so did not strip my face or make my face feel super tight but when the product was absorbed into my skin, it did leave my face a little bit tight. I didn’t feel like this product was worth the high price tag. It honestly gave me the same effect as the Thayer’s Witch Hazel toner which is like half its price and for this I was disappointed. It wasn’t a bad product but it wasn’t the best toner I have used. I would rather spend the extra few dollars and buy the Missha Time Revolution essence than this one.

Also what I didn’t like about this product was the big gaping hole in which the product comes out from. The whole was pretty big and so when I tried to get it on the palm of my hand, it literally poured all over my vanity. A cotton pad was a must with this product and I don’t really like using cotton pads with my toner because I hate the feeling of cotton pads scraping against my face. So I would rather buy the Thayer’s Witch Haze which has a much smaller hole so that I don’t waste any product.

I think that is one of the reason why I used this product up so fast. It was hard to control the amount of product that came out.

The next product that I used up is the Origins Planscription Eye Cream. My mom gave me this eye cream a long time ago and I have finally finished it. This was quite a thick eye cream and so you only needed a tiny amount. I loved how it had a pump instead of being it in a jar. It was really easy to control the amount of product with the pump and so I really did enjoy using it.

@letsgoctina
Origins Planscription Eye Cream

I liked using this product during the winter times when I did have dry patches on my face. During the summer I only used it at nighttime and just the tiniest amount around my eyes. It didn’t sting or broke me out or gave me more millia. I don’t think I would purchase it again though. It is quite esspenssive…lols

The next product that I have used up is the Almay Shadow Softies in Peach Fuzz. This was an eyeshadow that I got probably at the CVS near my college during freshman year. This was a bright peachy shade that was stunning to use as blush and eyeshadow. I mainly used it as blush and I loved how coraly and peachy it looked. This product had a unique texture. It went on like powder but it had a slight jelly like texture in the pan. It wasn’t as soft as the Colourpop products and in my opinion, this product was much easier to use than the Colourpop products.

@letsgoctina
Almay Shadow Softies in Peach Fuzz

I had hit pan on this product a while ago and have since then used it so much, pieces of the product started falling off. And eventually I used all the product that was left.

I probably would not purchase this product again since I have so many eyeshadows and blushes. The color was really pretty though.

The next product that I have used up is the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion +.Β This was a moisturizer that is very gentle to sensitive skin types. I had mentioned this in myΒ Mini HaulΒ a while back. I really liked using this product.

@letsgoctina
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion +

Like I mentioned in that post, it does have a plastic scent to it but it goes away once blended onto the skin. I loved how you could control the pump and the texture of the lotion was really nice. It wasn’t a thick cream but wasn’t completely watery. It left my face feeling moisturized but not too stuffy like a heavy cream. It was just the right consistency for my oily skin and it also hydrated those dry patches during the winter time as well. It also did not break me out so <3<3<3

I would purchase this product again but I am using another product at the moment..

The next item is the famous tarte shape tape concealer in the shade light neutral. This is probably the most raved concealer in the U.S. And for good reason. This is a full coverage concealer that does not crease, is easy to blend, and lasts all day.

Whenever I did not want to use foundation, I would just use this product under my eyes, acne spots, and just dotted the product around my face and used a wet sponge to blend it out.

It had a semi-matte texture and was really great for oily skin like me.

20180325_103101.jpg
tarte shape tape concealer in light neutral

I have had this product for more than a year and I thought I should get rid of it lol. I mean I have used it all I think since not a lot would come out and when I swirled the applicator wand I could see that the bottle was being wiped. Like you could see that the bottle is actually a clear case as I was swirling and scraping the product off the bottle.

It had a good run, this shape tape. Will I purchase this again? Yes. But right now I am going through that natural no make up makeup look so I have been looking for a very light coverage concealer. But I mean I will probably purchase this concealer again in the near future.

Last but not least, I have finally used up the EGLIPS Blur Pact Powder in No. 23. This powder has been with me ever since I started this blog I believe. And I have to admit that this product fell apart even before I finished using it. I had hit pan on it a while ago and was using the products that were left on the outer ring of the pan. But one day, I noticed that a section of the pact was lifted out of its case. I gently pressed it down and then…all hell broke loose.

The pact shattered and the next thing you know, my vanity was attacked with powder. I tried dusting it off but eventually had to wipe it all down with a wet paper towel. The pan was all dusty and powdery and I just decided to dump it all in to the trash. I mean I think I used this powder for almost two years now…I guess its time to let go.

RIP EGLIPS Blur Pact Powder. You did good…you did good. This was truly a nice powder. It mattified my face quite instantly and although I didn’t really notice the blurring effect, it did leave my face feeling velvety and smooth.

I have purchased a different powder to use that was on my list for a while. There are so many nice powders out in the market and so I probably will not be purchasing this product again. But I did really enjoy using it.

So anyways! Finally I got to sit down and post on my blog. I missed posting on here just to talk about makeup and such.

Also I have started daily vlogging but this time I am 100% committed to vlogging everyday. Even though I won’t be doing much every single day, I still want to use vlogging as an excuse to not be a lazy bum. So yeah…

Please check out my vlogs and subscribe. I am thinking of doing like a beauty related vlog as well I don’t know yet. Maybe like lipstick swatches or whatnot.

Anyways, thanks for reading if you have gotten this far and I will write again soon!

Also, let me know if you have used any of the products I have mentioned and if you liked them/disliked them. πŸ˜€ Look forward to reading your opinions!

BYEEEE~~~~~
