Rite Aid Haul

Today at Rite Aid I found the Revlon Cosmetics for 40% off. What I was very interesting in trying was a foundation from the Colorstay line. I was between the liquid and whipped foundation. I went for the whipped formulation because it is full coverage (the liquid Colorstay is medium coverage). I also got two nail products, top and base coats and a Photoready 2 in 1 kind of product, eye primer and brightener. The EcoTools brush I got to apply the whipped foundation and to test it out and see how many different uses I can find for it.
Is there any other Revlon products you recommend for me to try? I would like to take advantage of the sale and try different products from Revlon Cosmetics.

L.A Colors Moisturizing Lipgloss

I stopped at a Dollar General today and saw these L.A Colors lipglosses. I bought two to try out, Bare and Red Alert. I went to the the L.A Colors website and this is the description of the glosses: 

“Make your lips feel as good as they look. Moisturizing Lipgloss delivers untimate shine and lasting color that keeps lips feeling soft and smooth. Now available in a new sleek applicator, Moisturizing Lipgloss has an ergonic wand that deilvers vibrant color to lips. Enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, Moisturizing Lipgloss nourishes lips for a slick, glossy finish.”

Yes these lipglosses are very moisturizing, not at all sticky. They feel very comfortable on the lips. The colors are very opaque. 
Red Alert does not apply evenly. I found the need to apply a couple coats to spread the color evenly to the lips. I didn’t find that to be the case with the light shade, Bare. 
  
Wear Time: Not very good lasting power will need to reapply often. It transfers and wears off easily. About 1 hour before needing to reapply, specially the dark colors. Applying the product alone does look good. It does stain your lips which I like. I did not like the fact that it did fade right away from the middle of the lips.  

 On top of a lip liner the gloss can last longer. No it is not long lasting but for the price $1.00, it is a decent product . I love the packaging, very simple but chic.  

 What is your favorite lipgloss?

MOTD: Fun-Day!

Happy Sunday everyone. Today I decided to share with you my makeup of the day.  I recently purchased Kat Von D holiday palette and decided to try one of the three looks that come with the palette for inspiration. As I mentioned before, I don’t really use vibrant eyeshadow colors. The look that I recreated is a purple eyelook with PINK ON THE CREASE! I am very happy with how it turned out! The shadows were easy to blend, and I did not have to worry about any fall out!!

   

For my look today I used:

-Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

-Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Foundation (shade 3.5) : I like this foundation because it is very lightweight and gives me a natural look. It is not full coverage, therefore it just neutralizes my skin and gets rid of any redness.

-Maybelline instant age rewind concealer

-Laura Mercier translucent setting powder: to set my under eyes. I love this powder, it instantly brightens my under eyes!

-Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

-Bodyography Brow trio 

-Chella eyebrow defining gel

-ColourPop lip liner in Lumiere 

-Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix: Here is a picture of the look and also step by step on how to create it! 


Hope you enjoyed today’s post! I had fun recreating this look and sharing it with you! 

 

Deep-Pore Cleasing

I use this facial sauna kit to help open my pores and make it easier to get rid of any blackheads, any clogged pores.  
I don’t use it as often but when I do it makes it less painful to get rid of blackheads. 

  
 All I have to do is add a bit of water to the base and connect the facial cone on top. Once I turn it on it takes about 2 minutes for the water to heat up and produce steam. I then place my face over the cone and let the steam hit my face for 15 minutes which is usually how long it takes for the water to to evaporate completely. I then use a stainless steel tool from the brand Trim, which you can find at Walmart, to start removing blackheads. You just place the the flat side of the tool over the blackhead and press slightly. The other side is the wire loop and that one is used to remove whiteheads. This tool has a texture grip that gives complete control.  

 After I am done I go ahead and rinse my face with luke water and apply a nourishing facial mask…

 I then wash off the mask with cold water, apply toner and moisturizer. My face feels fresh and smooth after this little treatment.

I am really enjoying this facial sauna kit. It’s hassle free to use and set up and it gives my face a refreshing new start. If you are interested in this kit, it is sold at Ulta, Walmart, Amazon or Target for around $25.00.

How do u deep clean your face? What products do you use? I would love to hear your tips and recommendations!
