Loves,

How much does your skincare change? With the difficulties of the weather, & seasons, I constantly change my routine, but its definitely time to say “Boy Bye” to the routine changes and find something more long lasting.

I have tried the Neutrogena hydogel mask, Brightening hydrogel mask, and the capsule sleeping mask, and here are my thoughts.

HYDROGEL MASK

hydroboost3

Neutrogena has developed a hydro-GEL mask, unlike no other, ridding dry skin, and enhancing the dull appearance of skin. This hydrogel masks nourishes the skin with seaweed extract, and water in the form of flexible gel. This gel mask is translucent, and unlike sheet masks that dry down, the gel masks are infused with nutrients that keep its moisture and doesn’t dry out. I have combination skin, so I have the result of both dry & oily skin. Using this mask, help to extract dirt and oil, but keep my moisture and natural oils in my skin, which does not give a total drying effect to the skin. What I love about the mask, is after using it for 15-20 min, you can refrigerate the mask, restoring a cooling effect that helps plump the skin, and helps with redness, the left over residue from the mask, can be rubbed into the skin as a moisturizer, leaving the skin soft & supple.

Radiance Boost brightening maskhydroboost2

The radiance boost brightening mask, contains Vitamin B-3, which boost the skins texture, and radiance. Skin that is dull & contains scarring; and redness, this is the mask for you. The skin mask fights against acne, while cooling the skin of redness, and dry; dull skin. The mask is only $2.99

Neutrogena capsule sleeping mask

This travel size sleeping mask, may be small; but packs a big punch. The sleeping mask, is a concentrated gel mask, infused with hyaluronic acids, meant to target all skin problems; dryness, acne, aging, etc. I got about 4 good uses out of it, putting a little on, after cleansing my face, felt very moisturizing and gave me supple; hydrated skin in the morning.

After reviewing all the mask received, I can say that they are all successful masks. The hydragel masks, contains 50% more moisture than the sheet mask, and you get more uses out of them, the infusion of enzymes, and vitamins boosts the skin appearance in minutes.

Besthairbuy| Extensions

Loves.

B E Y O N C E , L A D Y G A G A, R I H A N N A…anything comes to mind? Lets put aside the fact that they’re all Q U E E N S, and great performers. Well, being that this is about hair, these women are known for whipping hair, and being style icons.

Hair extensions are the rage of the hair world, besthairbuy hair extensions are not only a boost to play with length & volume, but if you’re into switching up your styles constantly, this is what you want to try. Hair extensions come in wavy, straight, or kinky; curly hair. This is Hair extensions 101.

Bonded Hair extensions, are strands that are bonded or fused w/ natural hair using heat. These hair bonds are detachable, and safe to use, the only thing is once taken out you’re not able to reuse them. 

Tape in Hair extensions, are wefts of hair attached to double sided tape, which is then attached to your natural hair. You’re able to part your hair, and place the tape wherever you want length, it is completely harmless to hair strands.

Sew in, this is the most popular styling of the hair extensions. Your natural hair is braided and the hair extensions are then, sewn into the braids. The braiding styles determine if you want a side part, or if you want the option of putting your in a ponytail. When getting a sew in you still have to wash it, because this is not a long lasting style. The sew in can last for a few months.

Besthairbuy hair extensions, should be cared for just as natural hair. Hair extensions keep your natural hair protected for heat, and environmental damages, but still if not cared for hair extensions can lead to hair shedding, thinning. Be as gentile as possible when styling weave, no pulling or tugging, because the hair can be tangled and cause slippage at the root.

Pricing varies to not only the style choice, but the type of hair you purchase, synthetic hair tends to be cheaper and tangle easily, but as for fun colors, or something temporary synthetic hair can be the better option, for all my unicorns this is for you. Human hair can cost hundreds of  $$$, but this is more natural looking, & last for a longer period of time.

Maybelline New York- BUYS

lipstickkk167

Hi Lovelies 

Maybelline New York, has to be one of the best makeup brands, like right?

I recently brought a few of their mattes and metallic shades from their Colorsensational line, here are some swatches for your enjoyment, because I will be back with many more.

lipstickkk11

Maybelline has always killed it, with the formulas for their products, and I admit they have improved 10 fold, since I purchased my first product from them. When it comes to lipstick I look at every detail there is, smell, is it worth my shmoney, packaging, how long will it last, can I eat pizza and not look like a gremlin after ( Hi, i’m a Virgo). OKAY ENOUGH RAMBLING!!

I recently purchased some of their lippies half metallic, half matte. When it comes to metallic lip products, sometimes the shades show up as iridescent rather than metallic, so I was a bit anxious of how they would look. I brought Copper Rose ( Deep Red-Orange), Molten Bronze ( Brown w/ green iridescent) and Hot Lava ( Bright Crimson Red w/ yellow shimmer). The shades are very gorgeous, when gliding it over my lips and swatching the shades, it doesn’t apply tacky, the application is very creamy and rich.

The next shades are the matte colors I purchased in Concrete Jungle ( Brick grey), Rebel Pink ( fuschia ), and Sapphire Siren ( Blue). I love a comfortable matte, which is why most of my makeup collection consist of liquid lipsticks, but some matte(s) can be rough and tug when applying. The 3 shades that I brought, apply nice, before application, I did a lip scrub and removed dead skin cells, so that the shades would not look rough, and it helped. The matte shades last for a while, I’m not going to exaggerate and say it last all day, but through a cup of coffee, until lunch it lasted, and even after left a stain, which wasn’t bad.

Overall, I loved the shades I purchased, they all have very great pigment, and apply without tugging and pulling on my lips. I think the metallic shades have better quality formula as far as, pigment and applying smoothly.

I hope my Lovelies, have enjoyed my quick review, if so “LIKE” this post and tell me what is better Liquid lipsticks or Classic lipstick? Let me know in the comments

Healthy Skin for the holidays | Neutrogena

Happy 2018, Babes !!

Job, house, car….clear skin?? Things I continuously wish for every year, but this year, 1 out of the 4 wishes came true. Neutrogena launched it’s Healthy skin line of makeup. When it comes to Neutrogena, they always reinvent their formulas, which is why I keep buying from this brand. I got a chance to work with Neutrogena and test out a few of there new products from their collection, here are my thoughts.

n1

Neutrogena Healthy Skin® Liquid Makeup provides luminous, natural-looking. The formula contains an exclusive blend of antioxidants including Vitamin E, Natural Soy and Feverfew Extract along with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 to visibly improve luminosity, tone and texture over time for healthier looking skin – making Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup better for your skin than wearing no makeup at all. Available in 14 shades. 

Neutrogena Healthy Skin® Liquid Makeup offers advanced cosmetic solutions that go beyond covering up imperfections and work to transform complexions, blending seamlessly to provide lightweight, breathable and flawless-looking coverage, for fresh and luminous looking skin.

Neutrogena has developed a line of liquid foundations that will fight against the brisk cold and sunny days. The foundation is enriched with Vitamin E, soy, and fever few, all ingredients that help perfect the radiance and natural glow of the skin.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid foundation

I was sent 3 foundations from the healthy skin line in shades: Honey, Warm Beige, and natural tan. My skin looses all of my summer glow during the winter so, imagine switching back and forth between foundations, a headache, right? The shades were all perfect, when I started blending with my Artis brush, I thought crap, it’s showing all my pores, and its really wet, but I started buffing it out more, and it started to settle in, which was a relief, so no worries. The neutrogena healthy skin foundation is really great when it comes to the formula, and the consistency of the formulas all together.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost hydration concealer

One thing the winter does, is intensify dry skin, something that is not wanted, by popular vote. I love using this concealer, the concealer is creamy, and rich in pigment. Though it has intense pigment, it does not look cake-y, using this over top of my foundation looked gorgeous. Some concealers have a tendency to move my foundation, after applying it, but the hydro boost adds brightness to the foundation, and allows it to blend beautifully.

Neutrogena Healthy Volume mascara

Being that I have tried a TON of mascaras high & low priced, only a few have actually lived up to expectations. The Neutrogena volume mascara, is formulated with Olive oil, which helps with the overall plump look of each individual lash. I love the wand, for the mascara, all the bristles are evenly spread over the brush, which hits every lash. The mascara and the wand are packaged separately, and allows you to see how much product is dispersed on it. The product, when applied to the lashes, doesn’t feel like wax, it  has more moisture to it, so it doesn’t give that clumpy look to my lashes. Overall great product, and well recommended.

Neutrogena nourishing long wear eyeshadow | Healthy Skin Blush | Healthy Skin Primer

Along with the neutrogena collection I received an eye shadow palette, a skin perfecting primer, and a blush. Lets start with the neutrogena eyeshadow, I got the shade Cool plum, and that comes with 4 shades. This palette is great for traveling and also quick looks, that won’t take hours. All the shades contain shimmer, but the pigment is great. With every great eyeshadow, there will be fallout, but when a shade is super rich, it happens! I love how all the shades are coordinate with each other, and also that the shades are infused with a primer, the primer helps the pigment come through more, as well as feel buttery rather than chalk-y. The Healthy skin primer was my favorite thing to try out. This skin primer appears as a tinted moisturizer, but as I rubbed it in, it absorbed into my skin, also completely rid me of my dry skin. This primer adds complete moisture to the skin, while also leaving the tackiness for a well applied foundation. This primer contains SPF 15, it gives me the protection I need. Wearing this alone, would appear as a base and a sheer foundation, which for some days, is all I can get to #schooldayz. Blush is not something that regularly reach for, but in this case I’ll make an exception, I was sent the Neutrogena healthy skin blush, I got shade 20, which is a cool blush pink tone. The blush almost has a sheen effect over the skin, as well as a shimmer.I really like this blush, it is very buttery, and soft, it doesn’t look chalk-y and blends into my make up nicely. 

n13

This New year, I got to recreate 1 of 4 looks using the Healthy skin line, and what better way to ring in new beginnings with healthy skin. Choosing from a the makeup artist( Carola Gonzalez, Angela Levin, and Amy Oresman) who does, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, and Eiza Gonzalez, I chose to pick none other than Olivia Pope, Kerry Washington deep plum look. This look was so much fun to create, as you can see the makeup is blended to perfection, and this was a 1,2 ,3…step process, the longest time spent was on eyelashes.
