Product Review: Wet N Wild 2017 Collection

Hello Beauties, Happy Friday!

So this post is about the long overdue review for the recently released Wet N Wild products. I was supposed to attend the Wet N Wild new 2017 collection release event, but I wasn’t able to because I was really sick. Duet PR was kind enough to send me some of the products to try out. I also ended up ordering the foundation, concealer and a liquid lipstick. The order in which I am going to talk about these products is from my least favorite product to my most favorite. Here we go!

1.DSC_0390 (2)This is the Megaglo Dual-Ended Contour Stick in the color 752A Medium/Tan. I don’t like this one because the colors are too light for me to contour with, as you can see from this swatch below.  I won’t be using the highlight, however I will use the contour color as a concealer.DSC_0391 (2)

2.DSC_0387 (2) The Megaglo Makeup Stick Contour in 804A Oak’s On You is also too light for me to contour with. Just like the other one I intend to use it as a concealer. This is how it looks on me.DSC_0388 (2)

3.DSC_0413

The Coloricon Ombre Blush in the color 316B The Princess Diaquiries. This blush looks more like a pink highlighter on me as you can see in the picture below. It is very soft, pigmented and easy to apply. I will for sure use it as a highlighter this summer. DSC_0420

Color wise, these 3 are not my favorites. For a full review check out this link http://beautyandcurves.ca/wet-n-wild-new-liquid-lipsticks/.  I ended up ordering ordering a darker color 925B Give Me Mocha and it looks really good on me. I will purchase the darker colors in this collection since I find that they look and apply better.

I have not used these lip pencils yet but I love the colors. They apply smoothly and are pigmented.  Color 1 is 651B Bare To Comment and color 2 is 655A Think Flamingos.

I purchased the Photofocus foundation in the color 377C Mocha and I paid $5.99 USD which is not bad at all. I love the fact that it comes with a spatula which makes it easy when applying the foundation. When applying, I work in sections because I find out the foundation dries a bit quickly.  So far so good. I am not sure that I like applying it with a beauty sponge. Next time, I will try applying it with a flat top brush and let you guys know what I think.

Here are my 4 favorites…

DSC_0404 (2)The Photofocus Pressed Powder in the color 827C Dark Cafe is slightly too dark for me as a finishing powder, but as a bronzer it is perfect.

8.DSC_0929I purchased the Photofocus Concealer in the color Dark Cocoa for $3.99 USD. This concealer reminds me of the Maybelline Fit Me concealer but slightly thicker and cheaper.

DSC_0407This Au Naturel palette 753A Bare Necessities, speaks for itself. The colors are nice although some of them are more pigmented than others. They are easy to blend and to work with.AU NATUREL COLLAGE

This highlighter is everything! It applies well, it is very pigmented and looks great on women of color. The color I received is 321B Precious Petals.

Overall, I like the Wet N Wild new 2017 collection and I think it is a collection worth checking out. There are some hit and miss but I think the hits overpower the misses. Also, all the products that I mentioned are cruelty free. Check out this video to see how I was able to use most of these products.

Thanks for reading and watching, until next time!

We are finally in April which is of course my favorite month of the year and also my birthday month. I have many things going on this month, so I will try to blog as much as possible.

So today I want to share this super quick, easy and inexpensive DIY project with you. So all you need is:

a nice small vase; I found this one at Winners. Price – $6.99CADDSC_0795

Some artificial succulent plants; also found at Winners. Price – $8.99CADDSC_0794

and some small beads; which were purchased at Dollorama. Price – $1.50CAD

I did mix the clear beads with some jewelry beads that I was not really using anymore and I also added some glitter just for the fun of it.

Product Review: Organic Skincare – Acure Moroccan Argan Oil, Quick Fix and Body Lotion

Hello Beauties!

Happy Wednesday!

Spring has sprung and it is time to say bye bye to the winter blues!

So far this year I have had the chance to try out some organic products and some of them are form Acure. I never knew about Acure until I got to try some of their products and I think it is a brand that I would like to continue exploring.

The three products that I received are the Aromatherapeutic Moroccan Argan Oil – Rose, the Quick Fix Correcting Balm and the Calming Body Lotion – Lavender.

DSC_0485 There is not much to say about this body lotion except that it is very moisturising and it smells awesome. It contains lavender oil and sacred lotus stem cell. Lavender oil is my favorite essential oil and I am all for any product that contains lavender oil. The price for it is $9.99 USD for a 236ml container.

DSC_0484 I was not too sure on how to use this balm at first, but since I noticed that it was greasy, I decided to use it on my face at night time. I find it helps soothe my breakouts and it makes my skin feel so soft and moisturised. It has the same consistency as vaseline and it smells so good. According to the website, this certified organic balm works wonders around the mouth and eyes and it is a all-in-one balm that can be used for: cuticles, chapped hands, crow’s feet and your feet.  The price is $15.99 USD for a 30ml container on their website.

DSC_0483 This one is my favorite out of all three.  I use it both during the day and night time on my face. I love that it is multifunctional. According to the website, it can be used as a: facial serum, body + decollete massage oil, hair serum, hand + cuticle oil, soothes dry elbows + heels. Lightweight and easily absorbed, you can allow the soothing blend of rose geranium + lemongrass to soothe the senses and calm the mind. It is not as greasy as the quick fix correcting balm, that is why I am able to use it during the day as part of my morning routine. A little bit goes a long way and it smells amazing. The price on the website is $12.99 USD for a 30ml bottle.

Overall, I love all three products, and as mentioned previously, I would like to try more of their products especially the cleansers and face masks. Do I recommend these products? Yes. They are organic certified, they are free of harmful chemicals such as sulfate and parabens. They also don’t contain synthetic fragrance and are cruelty free.

That is all for this post. I hope you enjoyed reading it. Until next time!

PR Haul – M Squared Management Blogger Box

Hello everyone!

Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to talk  about some products that I’ve had the chance to try this year.  The M Squared Management team was kind enough to send me the Blogger Box which contained a few organic natural products for the purpose of trying out and review. I received my box back in January of this year, but I wanted to at least test out some of the products so I can let you guys know my opinion.

So here are the products that I received:

The Green Apple Lip Balm from the Green Beaver Company

The Calendula Intensive Skin Recovery Cream by WeledaWELEDA COLLAGE

 

The Radius Tour Travel Toothbrush. Although I have not started to use it, I find this toothbrush very convenient to travel with, hence the name.

TOUR BRUSH COLLAGE

 

The Spry Cinnamon Chewing Gum. I find this gum tasty and not as sweet as some of the regular chewing gums and it doesn’t last as long either. GUM COLLAGE

 

The Bliss Deodorant by Lafes. DSC_0438

 

The Jardin de Vie Eau Naturelle Parfumée Collection by WeledaDSC_0448

 

Last but not least, the calming body lotion, the quick fix correcting balm and the aromatherapeutic moroccan argan oilDSC_0480

I am not sure if these products are available in stores in Canada; however, some of them are available on wells.ca and they can be ordered on their company websites. I will be doing a separate review for the ones that I didn’t really say anything about in this post.

That is it for this post. Thanks for reading, until next time!
