Hey everyone, welcome back to anther blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone morning is going well so far. I am so happy to officially focus on my blogging again since I have moved last week. And it was absolutely tiring. I am back to my post scheduling already but for today’s blog post I am doing my review on Sol De Janeiro bum bum cream. I have in the past posted about when I got the product you can check it out here ” https://littleblackdress116079255.com/2019/05/02/quick-sephora-purchases/“. And now I am doing my offically review and thoughts on the product.
Now you can find the product here https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/brazilian-bum-bum-cream-P406080. At your local Sephora store, I purchased a mini because at the time I honestly was being cheap. The bigger size sells for C$59.00, which I am not to much feeling the price to be honest. Now the fragrance is a warm & spicy, but the scent is warm & sweet. The product is good for dryness, dullness and loss of elasticity. It is also made for pretty much every skin type out there. This product soaks in a fast absorbing cream, this helps tighten and smooth the look of skin.
Now to get the best out of the product is to massage the product in circular motion. You would apply this around your bum, tummy, legs and all over I am currently using the product around my bum and tummy area, mostly my tummy because of course I got two kids. My tummy area is not as tight as it use to be so I am so happy there is a product that smells good and also helps will this issue. The product is smooth and smells so good, it is not a greasy feeling and the scent is not to high. I always love applying the product right after I shower to get the most out of the product. This i recommend because when your skin is not to wet your product tends to soak in better.
I am really loving this brand, I am 100% looking forward to buying more of their products. This is something I would continue to buy often and restock, I give this product a 10 out of 10. Let me know in the comments if any of you have tried this brand or product. Or are you looking to try this out? Like & comment ! Thanks for reading I will see you all in my next post !
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day, my weekend was great and somewhat relaxing. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on how I feel about Milk Makeup hydro grip primer. I got a good feel on it and got time to gather my thoughts about this product. And wanted to share just in case anyone looking to try it out.
So I purchased this primer not to long ago, I was looking to try out a new primer. For a good two to three years now I’ve been using the becca matte primer and I’ve stuck to it. And I wanted to look for a primer that can hold my makeup, not make my face look or feel dry. The becca primer is matte but sadly it leaves a white consistency on my face. I wanted to try the hydro primer, at first I was unsure about it because how the consistency looked. And it looked like it would leave a sticky feeling afterwards but I decided to give it a try. I needed a primer and I had no second choice t to be honest lol. You can find the product here on sephora.
The hydro grip primer is a hydrating gripping primer. This product carries cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract for all day hydration. One of the things I love about the product is it has aloe water in it. And it blends clear to work with all skin types. For product to work best is to apply product over clean skin. Pump one to two shots apply product and let sit for one minute to activate grip. You can also wear this primer alone if you just want an no make up day. After using this product it does what it says my face felt 100% hydrated. I did not get a sticky greasy feeling after application even a few minutes after applying the product. And a little goes a long way with this product, which is a bonus.
After applying my foundation on it blended well with no issues my foundation looked smooth and blended. . The only thing I didn’t get to test was the length of time it holds up. I didn’t have my foundation on long enough to see how my foundation looked hours later. But I cant honestly talk about that and give results because we all have different skin types. And how my make up may look hours later yours may look different. so it all varies. My skin is only oily in my T zone and chin so usually hours later it gets oily. But hopefully this product helps with that issue.
If I had to rate this product out of 10 id give a 7, just because I still need to wear the product more and get more of a feel out of it. And wear it for a good couple of hours and see how my foundation holds up. But overall I love the product it was worth the buy and I honestly cant complain. If any of you have tried it what are your thoughts? Or is anyone going to try it out? Let me know in the comments. I always love to hear from you all, and ill talk to you all in the next blog!
Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. This is my first blog post from being gone for awhile, a lot has been going on and I needed some time away from my blog. Soon I will be back to regular scheduling and settled again, being gone away has been upsetting but sometimes we need to just focus on ourselves and that’s what I needed and still need a bit. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on the new fenty pro kiss’r luscious lip balm.
So the fenty pro kiss’r luscious lip balm is a creamy moisture lock lip balm, its an non greasy light weight gloss. This product can be used with the fenty lip scrub stick, you can exfoliate with the scrub before hand and then use the pro kiss’r lip balm after. I just bought the product about a week ago and I already love it this is my current go to lip product at the moment, I feel like so far everything of Rihanna beauty line I love I haven’t came across a product of her I didn’t like. I love how nude and clear the lip gloss comes across when applied it blends in so well with you natural skin tone which makes the gloss come off as nude.
I love that I can wear this with any make up look am going for, and also use this in any season I like. The gloss was $23.00CAD and I personally think it was worth the money, I would absolutely go back for a second. The texture of the gloss is great it feels creamy and moisturising it has no sticky after feeling which I love because I know that is a big thing when it comes to glosses. And personally I am not much a gloss girl I usually start looking for matte lipsticks, but I think its just because I could never find that perfect gloss for myself and that could also fit my tone of skin but I have finally found it.
My overall thoughts is go and get you some pro kiss’r lip balm you will thank me! hint hint is going to be my summer go to beauty must have and go to for my summer look I also can not go wrong with the packaging always love how rihanna does her packaging. If you have bought this product already what is your thoughts on it? And if you have not is it on your bucket list to get or at least try? Let me know in the comment section I always love to hear from you all! Thanks for reading talk to you all soon in the next post.
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Tuesday I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was super busy but at least has Sunday to relax a bit and unwind. Its a full busy week for me though hopefully I can get everything needed done. I wanted to start the week off with a current “whats in my makeup bag” post, I have done one a while back and wanted to do an updated one as because a makeup bag never stays the same am I right?
So one thing I have realised is I carry so much more in my makeup bag then before. I believe because of current product obsession and also maybe because of the current season? I live in Toronto, ON so it is currently winter so every season I only carry around products I need or currently need that specific day.
Whats in my makeup bag? So first thing I absolutely need always when am out is the current lipstick or gloss I am wearing that day of course in case I need to reapply. Also what I always need next is sometimes I carry around tissue, the reason is to blot, throughout the day I sometimes get a bit oily around my T zone and chin area and I hate walking around without touching up my face. Another top need is my lash glue, I now wear lashes every time I do a full on face or even if i just do my brows I have to have lashes on. In case a lash pops off I always make sure to have my lash glue. Those are all my top beauty must haves in my make up bag that has to always be there no matter what season, I even keep a lip balm in my bag for dry lips to apply before my lipstick or even if though out the day I dont want lipstick on anymore and just a balm its there. That should be in every beauty bag especially in the winter.
For the other beauty products I have that usually do change related to season, is I always have different primers in my make up bag. This is usually a change for me on mood, if I feel like using one primer I haven’t to in awhile id use it also it depends how my skin is feeling. But the top primer I usually use 90% of the time is the Becca matte primer, this helps me not get a oily face though out the day. So in my beauty bag I also usually have my brow essentials laying in there that isn’t a beauty must I need through out the day but I usually say to myself ” What if I need to fix my brows?” and so because of that I walk around with that also. But to be honest I do carry around a bunch of random things in my beauty bag I dont really need. When I am applying make up I sometimes use products and just then dump it into my bag and I then just leave it and because of this when I do carry around my bag its just packed with some products I dont even need or least at the time. One of the things I noticed I have a lot in my beauty bag is moisturiser I carry around different kinds and this is because of what I just explained, at this time its not so much a bad thing because its currently winter here in Toronto, ON and its pretty bad at the moment and its always good to keep moisturised.
I always love keeping a good mascara in my bag also, and I honestly dont need that around but I love collecting beauty samples from Sephora and I love trying out new mascaras am currently loving the Marc Jacobs one. And I always just throw them into my make up bag as a current habit. A non beauty item I love keeping is a good hair tie, yes I carry around a hair tie this is because anytime I am out and am annoyed of my hair or I need to tie it up I always got one on me. And I know id end up needing one because there has been a couple times when it came in handy. Well ! that is pretty much it for whats in my make up bag, its not a big bag so I do not keep that much in there but hopefully what I may keep in there could help one of you with yours! Also I know again I have been late with Monday post due to being a mom and being sleep deprived hopefully I can get back on track and get my blog posts done by Sunday I hope everyone understands. I hope you guys have a great rest of your Tuesday !
Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post ! Happy Monday I hope you’re Monday morning is going well so far. Mine of course and full of sleep deprivation as always but got to keep the blogs going, I am doing so well keeping up this schedule. I knew the more I keep up my blogging the sooner or later I’d find a posting schedule.
For today’s blog post is beauty related, let’s talk about the best beauty advice I’d received or even given. To be honest I somewhat remember some advice but this is a broad subject but I’d do my best. This is all the advice I have been given…
Keep a clean face before applying make up! Wash you face – This removes all dirt and pollution from your face so you can have a fresh face before applying make up. And it also helps your make up apply better !
Match your foundation from your neck not your hand – This is such an great advice I received in college in my make up program, your neck is actually the closet tone to your face NOT your hand.
Don’t leave your make up brushes in the bathroom – I mean how many of us wash our brushes and lay it down and sometimes don’t think to actually put it somewhere to dry? I know I’ve done it. Your going to want to lay your brushes near a window or dry clean area, when leaving it in the bathroom your brushes is actually picking up a lot of bathroom particles in the air and then this get applied to your face !
Keep your makeup brushes clean frequently – This one is a hard one for me but yes the best thing to to constantly keep up with keeping your brushes clean. A clean brushes equals a clean pimple free face.
Not everyone needs to contour their nose ! And contour the sides NOT the tip of the nose ! – I know this one is going to be a hard one for a lot but yeah not all nose shapes need to be contoured, this is one of the best tips I’ve received in college. We all have different shapes so why do they all need to be contoured the same?
Now for the makeup advice I have given or most likely would have given to someone …
Take care of you skin first then makeup – Taking care of your face first helps achieve the best make up application and also helps keep your skin healthy.
Apply mascara to your lashes not your false – This is a trick I actually came up with (in lash post), applying mascara first helps your false blend in well with your natural lash and also maximises your false lash life span.
Applying caster oil or Vaseline at night to lashes or brows help them grow – Yup, its true ! These two products help moisturise your lashes and brows and when applied often your lashes and brows grow quit a bit.
Brushing your brows often stimulates your brows to grow – This practice helps stimulate the root and when done often this allows growth, am one to say it has worked for me.
Have a separate towel for your face to dont use your “body” towel – This I actually never thought of, but if using the same towel for everywhere on your body and then used to wipe your face this can actually cause acne and pimples etc.
I hope some of these advice was helpful in some way, I am so sorry on late posting. I have been so busy this morning, I do now have a consistent posting schedule which are Mondays and Wednesdays. I will always post these days unless I got an extra blog post but I would let you know. Thanks for reading I hope you all have a great Monday !
