VSX Lipglosses + Velvet Mattes

2017-05-09-14-51-38

Hi Lovelies,

It’s has been nearly a month since I’ve done any kind of post, but in defense I have been working on purchasing a camera, to give you better photos, and cross over to that professional lifestyle. I have a ton of PR, and I have been buying a ton of products that I want to share, I will try and post everything on time….I’ll Try… But enough stalling, Let’s get into this blog.

I have tried a ton of liquid lipsticks whether they’re Matte finishes, or glosses and normally I end up highly intrigued and buy everything, not like a normal person, so when I saw the lip products in Victoria Secret, literally flipped out. We all know Victoria Secret for being the “Sexy lingerie store” and Adriana Lima SWOON! But now they have descent makeup. 

 

Let’s start by talking about these lip glosses, I didn’t get a chance to swatch these in the store I brought these simply based off outside appearance. The packaging is beautiful and screams Spring, and not only that they really read as luxury products. When I swatched these shades they were a little disappointing, they were really transparent and light, but the color shine shades were more pigmented than the rest. I did like the feel of it on my lips, they weren’t tacky when applying it, though it takes about 40 applications to get the color on the outside it still is pretty and good if you don’t want dry lips.

The Velvet matte shades are very pigmented, they show up clear as day. I like that they are not overly drying and still has sort of, a shine underneath. I really should have gotten more of these shades, because they are super pretty, they apply nicely, they don’t tug or pull on the lips. The only thing about the velvet matte shades is that when you dip the wand in from application, they have a clump of product at the tip, but that’s the only nit- picky thing I have with these.

( From Top to Bottom)

Lip Color Gloss:

Escape ( light lilac w/ Pink undertone)

Paradise ( Hot Pink)

Peek a Boo ( Fair Nude)

Charmed ( Nude w/ Red undertone)

Velvet Matte:

Impulsive ( Red Shade w/ Pink undertone)

Scandalous ( Purple w/ Pink undertone)

Lastly is the Lip plumpers, I brought 2 of the same kind, uhhhhh!!!! Too Faced cosmetics has a lip plumper and I wanted to see how this compares to the Too faced lip plumper which was $22 BTW, the Victoria Secret lip plumper was half that price. I really like this lip plumper it doesn’t give you a plumped pout, but it does add a ton of gloss and shine, it’s infused with vitamin E, which is good for moisture. I’m glad I purchased 2 because traveling and being on the go causes dry lips, and this will help a ton.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul/ swatch post, I will definitely be posting more. If you enjoyed this post be sure to “LIKE” this post and tell me if you like the Victoria Secret makeup? Have you tried it? What’s your favorite shade in this post, if any? Let me know in the comments?

La Perla J’aime la Nuit | First Impressions

Hi Lovelies,

If you’re a perfume Junkie *raise your hand with pride* We all have been there, we find ourselves walking past the perfume and a * Drop Dead Gorgeous* bottle is saying “buy me because I’m Pretty” my entire vanity is full of perfume bottles that just make it like a luxury corner, lol.

I recently got the chance to review the La Perla j”aime la nuit, which in french means ” I love the night” for a better translation. Okay, firstly is this bottle not living up to the beauty standard, this bottle is gorgeous , and smells lovely. I have been looking for this perfume for a while, and when I finally got a chance I didn’t grab, I snatched.  It retails for $60.

The La perla perfume has such gorgeous packaging, it comes in a little black box, with a little rainbow detailing around the name.

I really love the smell of the perfume It kind of smells like the Marc Jacobs Decadence and Dior fragrance had a baby, and this would be the product. The perfume has a musk, but it also smells very sweet in not a overwhelming way.

I really like this perfume overall, it really lives up to perfume expectations, I highly recommend it, for anyone to try.

All products, compliments of Notino, one of my go to for luxury perfumes and Beauty.

REVIEW: Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

2016-09-03-17-09-18[1]

The Product was sent to be reviewed, by Valentia x Brandbacker , all opinions are my own.

Hi Lovelies,

Today I’ll be giving my full, honest review on the Valentia Pure Glow Moisturizer, which was fun to finally get to try. For the past week I have been trying the moisturizing cream and trust me there is nothing but PRAISE for this product.

2016-09-03-17-11-23[1]

The Valentia Pure Glow moisturizer is an absorbent cream that is meant to provide all day hydration, also provides more repairs for the skin. The moisturizer protects the skin and is formulated with all natural ingredients.

I have tried Valentia products in the past, and have been pleased before, but as time goes by you kind of grow bored of using the same skin care products and need newer things ( you know what I mean). Using the new Valentia Pure glow has really been effective for the past week, supporting the skin by:

  • Lightening Dark spots
  • Restoring Skin radiance
  • Evening skintone
  • Diminish Fine Lines
  • Provide all day hydration

It is free of toxins and paraben(free) which is the natural process of repairing the skin without damaging or adding additional toxins into the skin. I loved using the moisturizing cream, the consistency on the skin felt very nice, it wasn’t at all thick; or to oily for my skin. Providing all day moisture to my skin made it easy to go through the day without wearing off.

Using this product for the week gave me a plump skin, and skin elasticity, which is a great look for the summer. The organic skin product has to be on the list of favorites for my summer skincare. Now, are my dark marks gone, of course not…its only been a week, but with time I think that they will lightened .

Overall the product was great, do I recommend this?? YAASSS, This is a really great product that takes time, but the longer you use it, the more you will see results.

If you want to purchase this product (here are the links below) The Price is $56 USD.

Product Review | Fragrance Outlet_ Bamboo Perfume by Franck Olivier

2016-07-27-12-22-55

 

“A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting” – Christian Dior

 

I have been collaborating with tons of big companies since the summer has started, most recently with Brandbacker. For the past two weeks I got the chance to try the Bamboo perfume by Franck Olivier, given by the Fragrance Outlet X Brandbacker.

When it comes to perfumes, I’m a huge hoarder, whether high end or cheap. The Fragrance Outlet is a huge department of designer perfumes ranging in the more luxury price range ( YASS! Expensive). So ,  when purchasing my BAMBOO perfume the price was nearly $80, so that basically says a lot about the perfume and the Fragrance Outlet (NOTHING IS CHEAP).

The Bamboo Perfume by Franck Olivier is literal perfection. I love perfumes that last all day, but not to overpowering, this scent is strong, but not to the point where its choking me. The smell is very floral and environmental, which is the perfect scent for the summer. Also, can we talk packaging! When my package arrived it the presentation was KILLING IT! I love packages in general, but the perfume came in a neat box, topped with a bow.

I Love the shape of the bottle, and the design has a little Bamboo plant on the bottle, its very minimal and Simple. Also, because I made a purchase I was sent 4 sample perfumes as well.

(The samples were: Thallium, Charriol, Mondaine, and Hermes)

Overall Review:

The Bamboo by Franck Olivier was a great smell, the packaging was amazing, and this scent has become my secret weapon of the summer.
