Fab Finds/Unfortunate Fails – August 2013 Edition By Fran

Fab Finds/Unfortunate Fails – August 2013 Edition

A lot of interesting things have crossed my path this month so I thought I would recap the gloriously victorious as well as the preposterously pooish. Keep in mind these are just my opinions, I may thoroughly enjoy something that no one else did, or find a fantastic item that’s getting rave reviews everywhere, completely horrifying. Yves Rocher Pure Light – Light and Luminous Foundation – This is a super-light foundation that provides a light/medium coverage depending on the number of ‘layers’ you apply.  It is indeed luminous, it is not glittery or sparkly but ‘lit’ and looks lovely whether day or night.  It is very liquidy however, and is best applied with a beauty sponge as opposed to fingers or brush.  It contains Rice Extract which is said to improve the skins radiance.   It’s dispensed from a pump bottle so mess is minimal, it’s […]

Skin, please come down! By Juanita

Skin, please come down!

Soooo, summer time… Some people love it, right? Sun, beaches, holidays, barbecue and etc. Some people wait the whole year for it. Well I do it too. I wait suffering in anticipation of my hair getting dry, my stomach not accepting food and my skin breaking out like crazy! Yeah, I’m not a summer person, I like the whole vibe but my body just don’t let me enjoy it. So every year is the same, all the work to getting my skin better during the other seasons risking to be lost because of the heat and humid during hot months. My skin is oily/combination but in the summer just seems that I instead of washing my face I’m using some kitchen oil all over! But this year I said NO! I’m tired of all this abuse! OK, too much? I […]

First Impression: IT Cosmetics by Fran

First Impression: IT Cosmetics

IT Cosmetics Review I have read and heard MANY fantastic things about IT Cosmetics so when The Shopping Channel had a Showstopper recently I just HAD to order. IT Cosmetics Your Most Beautiful You 6-Piece Collection was the deal of the day and oh my goshness, am I glad I ordered. First up is the foundation piece of the line the Bye Bye Undereye Concealer in a super size! Giiiiiidy! This stuff is fantastic. Creamy, light, full coverage, light reflecting, brightening magic stuff in a tube. It’s not just a concealer, it can be used as a foundation and a collagen treatment. The finish is so natural that you can’t tell you’re wearing it. I have yet to use it as an all-over foundation but as an under eye concealer, it’s game changing.  I’ve used a few times now and all day […]

Outside The Box: Beauty Box 5 – July Edition By Fran

Outside The Box: Beauty Box 5 – July Edition

I subscribe to an assortment of subscription boxes and Beauty Box 5 is one of them. The price point ($12 plus free shipping/deals for quarterly/annual subscriptions) is reasonable for a monthly sampler but historically, it’s not usually loaded with deluxe samples, more of the pouch/packet variety. This box however, was a nice surprise. First up a Foot Smoother by Every Beauty. It’s a dual sided dermabrasion sponge that removes rough, dry skin from feet, elbows, knees and can be used wet or dry. Looks very cool and I’m looking forward to giving my heels a once over. The value on this item is $8.99. Another full size item in the box is the Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in All Dolled Up. It has a super pretty sparkle and claims sheer to full coverage in a few coats. Not sure about […]

Outside the Box: eBeauty Summer Bag By Fran

Outside the Box: eBeauty Summer Bag

Outside the Box: eBeauty Summer Bag I loooove the internet, I find the most fantastic things.  In a recent adventure I came across www.ebeauty.ca they have some fantastic deals on brand name beauty goodies as well as ….wait for it….a seasonal glam bag.  Of course I had to have one and it arrived today.  This is a first impression of the contents since obviously I haven’t had a chance to really try anything.  Hopefully a more in depth review of the contents will follow after I’ve had some time to ‘play’ with everything. For $29.99 I received 14 products and a cute toiletry bag, a pretty good price point to be able to sample a lot of different goodies at once. First up are  the Katy Perry “Sweetie  Pie” Lashes ($8) with adhesive. I must admit I don’t use false eyelashes, […]

Review on Multiple BB Creams by Amber

Review on Multiple BB Creams

BB’s Everywhere!   Ok I must admit before trying BB Cream I was that Girl that was like, “BUT!!! I like foundation!” * So I tried My first BB which was the L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in “Fair” (30ml runs around $8) This one is one of my two personal favorites It doesn’t look so orange tone in real life my camera isn’t giving it the credit it deserves. I do love this one  A LOT it does nor make my face oily as I do have combination skin. Also This one does have a fair bit of coverage. I myself, Like to use this with a powder over top so after that its perfect! Does not feel over caked on and Does not feel greasy and covers  well . Con: for me is that its lacking sunscreen. […]
