BUXOM FULL-ON – LIP CREAM

Hello and welcome back,

Today’s review will be about Buxom’s lip cream/gloss. This review will be short today, because I’ve had a really busy week and I didn’t really prep for this review. Sorry ❤

74.jpg

What it is:
A creamy, no-shimmer lip gloss with a tingling, plumping effect.

What it does:
No shimmer or glimmer—just creamy, glass-smooth gloss, decadent color, intoxicating shine, and famous tingle for a gentle plumping effect. Encapsulated hyaluronic spheres infuse lips with moisture while vitamins A and E help keep them supple, protected, and extra kissable.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

75

This gloss is all I use, I threw all my other glosses out, I don’t think I can ever find a better one. The texture of the formula is a light-medium in thickness, creamy, and reasonably tacky. The Lip Cream settles into lip lines, whenever I have a bad lip day, either they are dry or just not plumpy I usually apply my chapstick and then the lip cream/ gloss and honestly it fades away any dry texture on my lips.  They’re true to the “no-shimmer” part of the description. I use this product almost every day. It does have a slight Plumping effect but it is not overwhelming like others can be (there isn’t much of a sensation). The colors are beautiful, but my favorite in the one I took a picture of and it is the Dolly. This leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturized. My more detailed review video is below.

Three Dark Crowns Book Review

hello my lovelies,

Today post is a little bit different then my usual posts. I saw that I haven’t reviewed a book in a long time, and I thought that I should start doing that again. I was event so close to record a video and do a book review, but my shyness got the best of me and just was happy with what I recorded. Moving on, if you guys are interested let me know in the comments below if you want me to do a book review in a video. Back to the book review, today I want to review Three Dark Crowns, I’m sure you’ve heard of it, and if not then this post is for you. I should mention that this will be spoiler free.

80

The Story is about, triplet sisters, three queens, essentially competing for the throne.  Katharine, Arsinoe and Mirabella each live in different parts of the land, each have a different power, and each have a different group of supporters aiding them. Each sister has to fight for THE CROWN. And it’s not just a game of win or loses…it’s a life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

In this case, Katharine is a poisoner who wields deadly cocktails; Arsinoe is a naturalist – at one with nature and animals – and not very good at it (nobody expects her to win the throne); Mirabella is an elemental and clearly the strongest of the three, her powers by far the most developed.

When kingdom come, there will be one. 

My Thoughts,

You have to admit, that sounds pretty evil and … amazing! I wish it held up to its story, I felt the concept is already strong, but it felt boring in the first half. The second half of the book, I got so interested, and because I fell asleep reading the first half I forgot some of the characters names that I actually went back and forth. However, there is a good side to this book, and there is a light. The ending is very amazing, and you should keep reading it until you get to the ending.  The story is actually darker then you think, some parts were so predicted but it still got me like  21969057

Rating: 3.5/5 stars! Interesting after the second half

Let me know if you read this book or if your interested in reading it, and if you already have, who was your favorite queen?

IMG_8562

Hello and welcome back,

Today I will be reviewing the Juviasplace Nubian 2 Eye shadow Palette. This palette as you can see is filled with amazing colors. I first saw it on Nikkie Tutorials and I thought wow I love how colorful it this palette is, so it has been on my mind for quite some time now. My sister actually bought this and the other 2 palettes from their website and was nice enough to let me swatch hers and immediately, I was IN LOVE! Juvia’s Place the Nubian 2 is super pigmented neutral eyeshadow palette with colors that speak out loud and pop beautifully on the skin! Let’s get to the review;

Available at  Juvia’s Place ~ $19.99 USD

My Thoughts;

I used it more than few times, I used it only once with a primer, I wore it to work for 12 hours without a primer and it did not move. The primer made the colors pop more, but honestly speaking I will only use primer if I have the time. The pigmentation is so amazing, and it’s creamy and easily slides on the eyelid. The colors are all wearable, and most importantly the color Zuri, can be used as a highlighter, been doing it for 2 weeks now.

  • No mirror inside

The Korean beauty haul

hello008

As you may know something about me, it’s that I love Korean products and cute packaging. The standards for a product to me becomes higher when the packaging is so cute. Today I’m going to show you some of the products I got when I was in NYC and some online. I tried all these products, they smell great and feel amazing. Lets get into the haul

I love my skin care items, and so all I have is skin care lol.

51.jpg

These 2 hand/body creams are so divine, they smell amazing and the cream gets absorbed pretty fast. I got these 2 from the body shop, they come in three, but I gave one away to my sister.

How cute is this? I’m doing it again getting obsessed with the packaging. This hand cream is amazing, a little goes along way, it smells like banana’s literally, and the it keeps your hands soft. I love applying it on, it’s not sticky it’s very air like feeling. This is from Tony Moly and its called Banana Hand Milk. you can get it on Amazing Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk

This is a lipbalm and I got this as a free gift, isn’t that amazing? again the packing is awesome, the product however not a huge fan. This is in the berry flavour, and it smells divine. This is also from Tony Moly and its called Kiss Kiss Lip Essence Balm

My sunscreen was almost done, so I decided to try a korean brand for sun screen. I understand how Koreans are with their sun block, it might be way to over board but it works and they have an amazing skin. I tried it on, its very oily, like a typical sunscreen, but it gets absorbed fast and the smell of it is a little faint to what usual sunscreen smells like. The one I have is spf 35, but I think I will get the spf50 in the summer. Totally recommend this.

 

Lastly, my Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture ALOE VERA 92% GEL. This stuff is amazing, again it smells amazing, there is a lot of it and it dries super quick. its great for everything in your body. It is free from paraben, mineral oil and artificial colors and meant to be a moisturizer for various parts of the body like the face, the arms, the legs or even the hair and nails. you can find this also on amazon Here

To conclude, I hope you enjoyed looking at my Korean obsession with skin care. Let me know if you have an obsession with any certain products, or brand that you just cant stop yourself from buying. Love to hear from you guys, love you and talk to you soon ❤
