Influenster VoxBox : Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara Review

disclaimer : I received this beauty product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are mine and was not influenced in anyway.  All pictures are mine unless specified otherse.

11073212_788401677876067_1520235791_n

I’m definitely loving Influnster.  Ever since i started with them, they just pampering me with awesome products that I can’t help myself being amazed sometimes.  This time, i must admit that my heartbeat got faster and my excitement grew up each day until the day I was actually seeing this box. I so love Yves Saint Laurent and I guess who doesn’t so.

They are not just well known brand in Fashion but their beauty products is a top notch too.  So,  I could say that I’m so pretty lucky to try this new products of them via Influenster.

11062991_788401697876065_747330973_n

So pardon my excitement and let’s begin the serious thoughts. This Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara is very new in the market.  It only has 21 reviews on Sephora and 22 on YSL website at this time .  It has a retail value at $32 which can be considered as high end product.

Based on YSL website:

NEW improved formula does not dry out. The best gets even better, the original false lash effect mascara, now with an all new Lash Care formula. Achieve absolute dramatic lashes in a single stroke for eyes that instantly pop. Its secret is the Triple-Intensity Formula: intense volume, intense color and now intense care. The nylon fiber brush coats each lash in deep color and maximum volume from root to tip, while B5 Pro-Vitamin strengthens and protects lashes. Available in 6 signature YSL shades to compliment eye color or to create a customized look. ysl US

Since it’s a high end beauty product, the expectation is generally high.  So does it trully provides high volume and a dramatic false lash effect? Of course since I so love mascara, my answer would always be yes. So, as not to corrupt the result on this review, i also let my niece try it for herself and let me know her thoughts about it.

1

The shade is very nice and instantly create a dramatic effect, the effect of using a false eyelashes but never feeling that you are using one. It was easy to use and glide perfectly even on your small lashes.

I believed that it is not waterproof  and for someone like me who easily cries could be a problem. I do hope that they can create a waterproof product in the near future but so far it doesn’t seem to be a big problem since it stays in your lashes for quite a reasonable time without the hassle of removing it with the use of make up remover.

It can help your eyes pop and if you love making dramatic eyes, this would be a great way to start.

Holiday Gift Ideas: One Direction Make-up collection

I’m a certified fan girl.  At my age, I still have my crushes among kpop and korean actors but I also like the songs of few boy bands.   Who doesn’t know the all boys group , One Direction, those five hunks that have been known for their solo audition at X Factor UK, they haven’t made it to the finals but as they say, the rest is history.

Perhaps you have been having “lss” (last song syndrome) with their songs, “what makes you beautiful” or singing along with the “story of my life” or definitely feeling “alive” or “happily”. Isn’t it a wonderful feeling listening to their songs as if I’m young again, ready to fall or fall out of love, reckless and carefree.

Now, this is the big deal, you can continue your fangirling with the latest limited One Direction make-up kit collection which features the youth, bright and bold unique formula, but this time it’s not reckless or carefree since it was created by a well known company “Markwins International (owners of Markwins Beauty Inc), the same maker of Wet and Wild, Barbie and Disney Princess cosmetics and of course the well known Philosophy cosmetics.

10816050_738406682875567_877131054_n

The collection has a keepsake tins inspired by One Direction’s globe conquering albums, whether your a party girl or a rocker, this is definitely something that will help you show your  personality.

Although, I’m not really head over heels with the boys of One Direction, I’m loving this make-up collection, which I think is just perfect find for the coming holiday with all the christmas party celebration.  I will definitely let my friends grab their set too.  (I know someone who is a die hard fan of One Direction and she would surely grab this at once).

Lipstick Madness : Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick

Disclosure :  I have received a complimentary product from Influester to facilitate my review but all opinions are mine. 

I have always been a lipstick addict.  Over the years, my collection accumulated with different shades that i love.  I believe that even though you don’t wear a full make-up a nice shade on your lips can define your face and make you lovelier and livelier.

rimmel london moisture lipstick

Of course, it’s not always good to pick up different lipsticks on the mall, you also need to consider the benefits that you can get from them aside from making your lips pretty , your lipstick should also possesses qualities to help your lips maintain it’s moisture and good thing, Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick helps to bring back the lost moisture of your lips with additional rich color that you have always wanted.

I was infused with Vitamins “A”, “C”, and “E” to help care for our lips. It’s definitely a lovely shade for everyday use or for a night affair with your family or friends. Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick is definitely my new fave.

Hayan Korean Cosmetics : Affordable Korean Cosmetics

Hayan Korea Cosmetics

Hayan Korea Cosmetic

Since the time I was hooked watching Korean drama,, I have seen korean actors and actress on a different light.  I think, they have the pretties face because of that flawless skin and some doesn’t have any traces of imperfection. I remember a statement made by one of my fave Korean Actress that she has no secret on having good skin.  She just take care of it by eating right, good sleep, a lot of water and right skin care products.

I guess, one factor that helps Korean maintain their beautiful skin is their weather and don’t forget their genes as well. But definitely one thing that help them is their skin care and make up products.  I have tried some Korean cosmetics on the past and I totally love them, i guess anything related to Korean will surely be favorable to me 🙂

That’s why learning about  Hayan Cosmetics makes me smile. I was very happy to receive some products from them and was impressed when I used it. That’s why when I saw a franchise stall in our area, I immediately grab the opportunity to buy their nail polish and black eyeliner.

Hayan Real Black Eyeliner 

The wing tip or cat eye is all over the net today and I thought it’s very easy to make but honestly It took me sometime to master them especially with my eyeliner but with Hayan Real Black Eyeliner, creating a dramatic wing tip is very easy even if your just a first timer.  It’s easy to stroke and apply and the color is just perfect to create the look and can even last whole day without the need to retouch.  Php. 230 ($5)

Hayan Nail Polish

Who doesn’t love pretty nails?  Seeing my nails all dainty makes me smile. Although their colors are still limited, I love the fact that their nail polish has pretty colors and easy to apply and affordable to.  Yet, i still need to put it on a trial whether how many days would it last on my nails.  (I’ll update you with this one)

FFF tip:

Choose a base polish that is bright and apply two coats of the glitter polish.  I just wish they can offer more colors.

Hayan Mask Sheet for Women

 Recently, I have been obsessed on using mask sheet on my face.  Irregular skin tone, dull, dry, wrinkles, dark and aging , these are  just few of the many problems that our face suffer each passing day and as we grow older and more exposed to dirt and stress, we couldn’t avoid all this problems.  Hayan Mask Sheets  on different variants help your skin achieve a fresh and young looking skin. It moisturize, leaves a firm skin and revitalize them.

Each sheet cost Php. 60.00 ( $1.50)

Each sheet cost Php. 60.00 ( $1.50)

 Hayan tip :

Use them cold.  Refrigirate before using and make sure your face is clean before applying it.  Pat around your face, neck and nose.  Take the mask after 15-20 minutes and no need to wash it, if there are some essence that was left, just leave them on your skin by patting them gently.

If sealed – 3 years

Unsealed – used them immediately

FFF tip

I like the cold feeling on my face although I don’t like the smell of it but it’s bearable.  I felt a little bit of stingy feeling or sensation on my skin when I first tried it but the second time around, it was different.

It leaves a smooth feeling after using them.

Would I buy it?
Definitely yes,  for a very affordable price, it can help you achieve a smooth skin.

Hayan Slim Lipstick

hayan slim lipstick

 One of the cutest lipstick I have owned so far.  If your a regular reader of this site, you knew that I am a lipstick addict and owning different shades of lipsticks is one of my ultimate dream.  Hayan Slim Lipstick is very affordable and their shade is just oh so pretty.  Since, it’s slim, you can bring them anywhere even if your just using a small pouch, you can bring it out to give your lips a luscious shine.

hayan review

Over all, i love their products. Just I wish, i could find a product that will help minimize my under eye circles because it’s really hard to conceal them even with all the blending and concealing and foundation, I just hate it.

I have been thinking of trying their snail skin care collection since I have heard great things about it.

Tao Titanium Classic Flat Iron Review

Tao titanium classic

Honestly, I thought I have published this post and it’s been there in my draft form for quite sometime with all the kids getting sick and no house help, it was really a tedious work but It’s not that I’m complaining and not an excuse to look at my best even with the busy and stressful days.

It’s  been a while since the last time I used a hair flat iron because the last one broke my heart when it didn’t last even a year.   There’s always this notion that when you use hair iron everyday, your hair will become damage and frizzy.  I guess, the one that can really damage your hair is coloring it or staying for so long in the heat of the sun.

There are many brands that are coming in the market today all are saying that they have the best product but then when you used them you get the chance to finally see that it’s not even worth it. I am loving this Tao Titanium Classic flat iron, because it’s not just very handy and easy to use.  It’s easy to heat so you don’t need to wait for such a long period of time to use them.

flat , easy to hold

flat , easy to hold

About the product:

With it’s top-of-the-line heating element the TAO Titanium flat iron allows for quick heating, quick cooling and an even distribution of heat across the nano-titanium plates. In addition, they generate 6 times more ions then metal irons which helps seal the cuticles of hair to prevent split ends, reduce frizz and retain hair’s natural moisture, oil and color!

Features:

  • Nano-titanium & silver technology
  • Perfect for curls, flips & waves
  • Max temperature 450F
  • Digital temperature display
  • Adjustable heat Settings
  • Ultra-quick heat-up & recovery
  • Ultra-slim, ergonomic design
  • Ion generator for smooth hair
  • 1 Year Limited Warranty from Manufacturer

It has an ion generator that can help your hair  achieve a smooth finish.  Ever since I decided to take a new hair color, my hair becomes dull and frizzy but  I’m so glad that this can help me with my recent hair problem.

Here’s a before and after.  Seeing my hair reminds me that I need to get a new hair color since the black ones are coming out again.  Aside from easy to use, i like that it can create different style from curl to wavy and the usual straight one.  If you are a regular reader, you will see me sporting my wavy hair before.

The Tao Titanium classic flat iron is a good companion for everyday use or when you are attending a  special occasion since you don’t need a stylist to create a beautiful hairdo for you.  That saves time, energy and lots of money too.

You can get Tao Titanium at Beauty Stop Online,  an online shop that offers great deals of beauty and fashionable products for all lovely girls out there.

Plump that pout with Avon’s latest True Color Technology

With the likes of Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and local actress Anne Curtis showing their big pouting lips, seems many girls are now rambling about big lips.

There was a time that I hate having this kind of lips.  Some of my classmates would even tease me for having  a different lips from my other classmates but I guess in time, I have learned to appreciate what was given to me  especially when I have learned how to apply lipsticks and the thought came to me that having big lips seems an advantage for me especially when I was growing up since boys find it more attractive.

But even though you don’t have a pouting lips, you can still plump that pout by knowing some tricks on applying your lipstick. (although, please don’t mind my chappy lips, i’m using a natural balm so it could get back on how it was, luscious and soft )

Anyway, here’s a simple way I have learned on achieving a plump lips which I regularly do.

avon lips

  • First, you need to outline your lips with a darker shade of lip pencil. To achieve a more fuller or bigger lips, outline it outside the line of your lips.
  • Choose the color that you like,   lipstick, lip stains, lip glosses , this are just some of the ideas.  Fill your lips with it.  You can directly apply the lip color or you can also use a lip brush to attain a more lasting result.
  • Remove the excess lipsticks /color using a Q tips.
  • If you want your lipstick to stay more longer.  Dab your lips slightly with tissue and apply another coating of lipsticks.

Ultra Color Lipstick in Hibiscus

I am now loving this Avon’s Ultra Color Lipstick.  This vibrant lip color is really interesting because what color you see on the lipstick is the same color that will appear on your lips.

lava love

Avon’s Ultra Color Lipstick in Lava Love

A little note:  I have learned that make up artist use concealer to help make the lips more fuller,  I guess, i need to learn this trick and I will let you know once i have perfected blending the concealer to achieve more desirable result.  

Of course, it doesn’t stop there.  You need to exercise your lips and practice on creating a beautiful pout.  Sometimes, i look at the mirror and push my lips as if kissing somebody. It does help me but of course I want to know the result on you.  Let me know what you think.

Quick make up guide for busy working moms

For working moms like me, I know how busy morning can be. From preparing the breakfast, to getting your kids dressed for school and  rushing out to beat the traffic on the road, so you can come to work on time. It was indeed a busy morning that sometimes, we don’t have the time to put on a make up but don’t forget that besides being a mother, your also a professional who needs to look presentable and charming.  Sometimes, busy working moms always reason out that their hands are all full and there are million things to do  that even putting a lipstick would be very impossible. Here’s a quick make up guide for moms out there.

But I came into realization that when I look better, I feel more better, even if it’s not a working day and you will only just stay at home taking care of the kids, it is always nice to look at the mirror with a fresh face than seeing yourself very worn out, tired and dull.

I know, I’m not a professional make up artist nor a stylist but this quick guide is based from my own experience .  This can help you look and feel beautiful in just few minutes of your time, barely 5 minutes on my part.

Be organized

To start with, make sure that you have your handy make up organizer to put your make up, so you can just get it out easily each morning.  On that bag, you can put the basic, like  an eyeliner, blush on, lipstick, mascara, pressed powder and for me, BB cream. It is also good to have the basic make up brush set, mine even though i have professional brushes, i enjoy using Avon’s brush set to help my  make-up time smooth and easy.

Refresh and Moisturize

avon anew vitale

Make sure that before you apply your make up, you have a clean face.  I have learned that using a moisturizer is very important.  Avon’s  Anew Vitale Day cream helps to energize your skin and formulated with Pro Energy Complex to help strengthen skin.  It has Spf 25 also to help you protected from the harmful sun rays.

Flawless complexion

While it’s good to put a foundation to achieve a flawless complexion, it can takes some time to apply them, that’s why I’m really thankful when  BB cream came out in the market.  It is definitely a must-have for busy moms; it fills the job of a luminizer, primer, moisturizer and sunscreen.  Avon’s skin goodness moisturizing BB cream has SPF 20 and it’s easy to apply,

IMG_2493

helps disguise dark circles, blemishes and even out skin tone.

Glowing Eyes 

The eyes is the windows of the soul and it can also reveal if you had a rough night.  Even if your sleep deprived , a good eyebrows and a sheer, shimmery eyes can do the trick. Avon’s True colour eyeshadow quad in Purple Pop can be your day time to night time make-up.

makeup

You can use the light shade for day time and apply additional coat for an emergency night dinner with the family or friends.   I like Avon’s Super shock max mascara , it add dimensions and glow to my lazy eyes.  Just a few coats and it makes my exhausted eyes to an instant wow with 15 x more volume.

Sun Kissed Glow 

Give your pale face additional glow.  It doesn’t need to be always in red or pink, (although I love them on my face) this ideal Luminous Blush in Peach from Avon is simply lovely, use your blush brush on the apples of the cheeks for that youthful, natural glow

Perfect Pout

avon lips

I’m a confessed lipstick addict, i so love putting different shades of lipstick and I could  never leave the house without wearing one.  For busy moms, it’s good to use a lipstick that can last all day so you don’t need to reapply always.  Avon’s Ultra color lipstick gives a vibrant lip color that help your lips stay fresh and vibrant for hours with a nourishing formula and self renewing pigments.

It only takes minutes for you to have a fresh glowing pretty look that is not over done and perfect for working mom.

Be Beautiful with Avon’s newest make up collection

I always believe that make up helps every woman enhance the God’s given beauty to them.  As for me and for many others, it also help hide those flaws and even the blemishes that I so hate.

Avon has been a household name of many Filipino women, i remember the first time I acquired my first Avon lipstick and ever since, I’m a great believer of their products not just their make up but also their intimate apparel.

I’m not an authority it terms of make up application nor I had a formal make up lessons but since I so love make up , i have learned through tutorials and from experienced as well.

This will be my first make up tutorial and i do hope that I can help you even in a very simple way and of course i’m in the  process of learning and will definitely wanted to upgrade my knowledge on this field.

Avon’s newest make up collection offers a true, vivid color that can really make you look pretty and fabulous.

With this look, i have used the one I have received from Glamour Box ( I was really ecstatic when I opened Glamour Box special Avon Edition Box) check out my experience on it on another post.

To begin with;  I used Avon’s Newest Skin Goodness Moisturizing BB Cream with SPF 20 and blend them in my face.

Next, i work on my eyes.  I am not really great on creating a perfect brow but I know in time, i will too ( with the right knowledge and learning, as they say, practice makes perfect)

I love this Avon’s Perfect Eyebrow pencil since it can use to apply eyeshadow on lid and eye liner.

This True colour eyeshadow quad in Purple Pop that comes in the box was really pretty.  I love pink and purples and this one is a perfect combination for day and night event.

Although, I regularly use red or pink on my blush on, this Ideal Luminous Blush in Peach is simply natural.  Honestly, i could not notice a difference at first (perhaps it’s my skin tone) but when I added some layer, I see that it was really nice and I guess, i would be using this for a while.

For the lips,  I have read about a rule that when your eye color is darker , use a light layer of lip color on your lips.  So, this Ultra color lipstick in Hibiscus is just right.  (you can also read my other post on how to achieve a more pouting lips)

Myra E – Keeping you beautiful inside and out

With many products that are coming in the market claiming that they can give you better result,  it’s really hard to make a choice but when you find something that works for you, then I should say that you are very lucky.

As much as I deny it, i’m getting older and sometimes my body says so and for a working mom with two kids, i need to keep myself healthy at all times.  That’s the main reason, why i need products that will keep my body and skin healthy and beautiful just like when I was younger.

It’s been months that I have been using Myra E hand and body lotion and vitamin E capsule and believe it or not, I am satisfied with it’s result. Even hubby was already using the lotion and as I have always mentioned, his rather hard to be satisfy with just anything but with months of continue using Myra E, it only means that he has just find his match.

Myra E capsule has antioxidant properties that help repairs your damaged cells and since vitamin E is already proven to give radiant skin, does continued usage will give you result  of a  beautiful healthy skin that we all wished and yearn for.

Although, i could not guarantee you that it can make your whiter since it doesn’t happened to me but what i can assure is that it can make you more fairer and the best thing is to keep your body healthy which I think matters most.

In terms of Myra E lotion,  i used it before going to bed since it has no spf but if your looking for one, they also have Myra E Daily Sun Protect facial moisturizer but i haven’t tried them yet since i am  already using another brand.

Myra E is a product from Unilab  who has been there to keep families protected and healthy through their lifetime.
