Jane Iredale Skincare & Makeup | First Impressions + Swatches

Sony_12[1]

Hi Lovelies,

It is June 1st, and it seems like a lot has happen in the month of not writing. I’ve been in between testing tons of makeup and trying to get back in school, but moving into June I have a ton of exciting post to share!! Enough rambling lets talk makeup, LOL

Now around the beginning of May I received a gorgeous package from Jane Iredale, if you haven’t heard here’s a little info on the brand.

Jane Iredale is the president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, a company she founded in 1994 which brought the mineral makeup line Jane Iredale to the aesthetic industry. She was the first to supply this industry with a line of makeup that had skin care benefits.

Jane has always thought of makeup as an essential part of a woman’s sense of well-being and she wanted to make that easy to achieve.  That’s why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional.  Her goal is to make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin.  Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.

I was sent a bronzer, 2 pressed eyeshadow palette, 2 glosses, 2 lip crayons & a Hydration Spray.

Lets talk hydrating Spray, the spray is a lemongrass hydrating Spray that is great to give you a boost after a workout, or even a glow to your makeup. I used this after both scenarios and its such a boost of refreshing mist, It does take more than a sec to dry, but the consistency of the spray is so even, I really love using this. In a world of setting sprays and hydrating sprays, I really can’t compare this spray to any other, the combination of lemongrass, and the mist itself is so refreshing. Now Jane Iredale, has 5 different hydration sprays, it retails for $30. Overall this is great product.

There isn’t a beauty brand that doesn’t have a line of pressed eye shadows, the most famous of them being Colourpop, Jane has a ton of pressed eye shadows to select from in various finishes, matte, metallic, creamy, etc. The 2 palettes I have comes in a duo and another was a trio of shades. Both palettes have a great transition shade, and between the two I can do at least 3 different eye looks. The duo pure pressed shadows have 2 shades a light shade ( Supernova) and a deep brown shade w/ Shimmer ( Oyster) both are heavily pigmented and are not chalky at all, I think the shades are perfect for everyday. I love the packaging of the duo palette, it comes in this luxurious gold packaging, which I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. The Trio palette is pretty as well, the palette “Pink Bliss” comes with  pretty shades, a transition shade, a very matte pink shade, and a shimmery plum shade, which gives me so much LIFE!

first 3 ( the Pink Bliss trio palette) Last 2 ( Oyster/Supernova duo palette)

These are the swatches without priming my arm, as you can see the shades are pigmented and doesn’t have any chunky fallout, which you normally get with glittery or shimmer eye shadows. Overall the shades are great, they are wearable and both contain very pretty shades, my favorite is the “Pink Bliss” trio palette.

Both palettes retail for $30

Next I got the “Rose Dawn” bronzer that comes with a highlight, 2 blushes, & contour, when I looked at the shades they all seem like blushes, except the highlight shade, But then when I swatched I could tell the difference, the shades look a lot different than in the pan itself. All the shades have a shimmer effect, which when it comes to my bronzers/ contour shades I like deep matte shades but I tried it anyhow to give it chance. I really like the feel of the bronzer, the texture is very buttery and soft, they apply really nice. When wearing the bronzer shades they act more as a highlighter, all have a very iridescent finish to them sort of like the Nicole Guerriero x ABH highlight palette it’s just the shades look a little similar, which is great. I like the bronzer palette, its really pretty on the face.

It retails for $44

Lastly I got some lip products, when it comes to lip products I am a hoarder, I was sent 2 glosses, 2 lip crayons, and a lip balm. The glosses I got was the shade Pink Smoothie & Beach Plum. When it comes to glosses I normally can do without, because glosses can be sticky or not pigmented enough for me, but these Pure glosses are nothing like it. I really like the lip glosses, they are very light when applying and they don’t have a tacky application. I really like the shades, Beach Plum is my favorite, I’ll show you why in a min. I also got some lip crayons, which I love, both shades have this velvet like application which is just pigmented and smooth.

1496275962081

The first 2 shades Lip Crayons ( Yummy & Saucy) I love the names BTW! last 2 Pure Glosses ( Pink Smoothie & Beach Plum) 

The lip crayons are, as you know, easy to apply, they glide on the lips I just love them.

Yummy ( Pinky Nude shade)

Saucy  ( red- Orange)

Pure Glosses

Pink Smoothie ( light Pink shade w/ shimmer)

Beach Plum ( Dark Plum w/ Pink undertone)

Lastly I got a Jane Iredale lip balm, which is just a great hydrating lipstick. I love the feel of this lip balm, it has a little pink tint to it, and smells like lemon, Mmmmm!!

The lip glosses retail $26 | Lip Crayons $18 | Lip Balm $15

Well that’s all for my haul and first Impressions, I hope you enjoyed, If you did be sure to “LIKE’ this post. Have you tried Jane Iredale? Whats your favorite product?

Warby Parker |NEW COLLECTION EYEWEAR ’17 (Debut Feb 15)

Hi Lovelies.

Today I am super excited to show you the newest collection of eye wear by Warby Parker. As a fashion blogger, I love to try the latest in everything, and having the right shades have to be a must have accessory in the world of fashion.

“It turns out there was a simple explanation. The eyewear industry is dominated by a single company that has been able to keep prices artificially high while reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options.

We started Warby Parker to create an alternative.

By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear at a fraction of the going price.

We believe that buying glasses should be easy and fun. It should leave you happy and good-looking, with money in your pocket.

We also believe that everyone has the right to see.

Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work. To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

There’s nothing complicated about it. Good eyewear, good outcome”.

Warbys’ Spring collection of eye wear and shades have captivated the essence of femininity and metal, which is a trend that has been debuting in collections of both fashion and beauty, so eye wear is just a chic additive.

I love this company, Warby Parker, makes prescription glasses that has its own unique style and also have chic styling of no other eye wear. I am proud to be one of the few first to see the entire collection, and get to share it with you guys.

Here are just a few of my personal favorites from the collection:

These are just a few from there Spring ’17 collection, I swear by this brand you will not be disappointed, these shades come in a variety of styles and colors so you will not get bored in any way. I love the collection, I like that Warby Parker eye wear, takes on modern day fashion and style, and makes it wearable and sensible to the eyes.

I received some of Allure’s best seasonal products

  1. Briogeo Don;t Despair , Repair Deep Conditioning Mask, it contains rose hip, almond and free of parabens. It is a pudding mask, that only relies 2 drops to disperse through your hair. It smoothes, detangle, and strengthens your hair without a ton of chemicals. It retails for $36.

  3. Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow single (shade: Kristi), The Doucce eyeshadow is a brown mineral eyeshadow shade, with hints of shimmer and gold sparkle. The shade is super rich; creamy to the touch.

  4. Tatcha Indigo Soothing Body butter, this particular body butter is meant to hydrate and sooth the skin. Infused with colloidal oatmeal, which is good for calming irritated skin, this body butter is a beautiful bluish color, that absorbs into the skin w/o leaving a greasy interior. The cream is so light, and a must for the winter season. retail for $12.
  5. Mally Volumizing Mascara, there has been a ton of mascara releases this year, and I think this Mally volumizing mascara will go on the list of “favorite Buys” This mascara is made with nylon bristles that separate each lash adding volume to each lash individually. The product spreads evenly onto the wand, giving sexy; full lashes all day. retails for $20
  6. Klorane Dry Shampoo w/ Oat Milk, dry shampoo has been my hair savior this year, and Batiste has set the bar, but this Klorane dry shampoo could be a new favorite.

It sounds basic, but being able to add texture  and cleans hair at the same time. retails for $20

INFLUENSTER VOXBOX: RIMMEL LONDON

PSX_20150717_233855

Hi Loves,

The Summer is the best time to try the latest trends in beauty, fashion, hair, to prepare for the Fall. I have gotten some really great products to talk about complimentary of Influencer. Being that I was accepted to try the Rimmel London Voxbox I am only super excited to show you what I have.😊

• First thing I poulled from this amazingg box was VolumeFlash Scandal Eyes Waterproof Mascara. Believe me when I say, this is the best of Rimmel Londons mascaras this year, this mascara glides from root to tip, without giving the appearance of heavy clumped lashes. I love this mascara when I tried it, my eyes popped instantly ( Big, Bold Brown eyes)😉😉.

• Next, is Rimmel London’s Stay Glossy lipgloss. Want luscious lips, this is the product, guys. I try alot of lipsticks and glosses, (more than 30+ monthly), this is the shine that has been missing from my collection. I love this gloss, it glides over my lips, stays on for longer than 6 hours, and (big problem with alot of glosses)Its not STICKY. I do recommend this product to anyone who is a gloss kinda person.💋💋
PSX_20150715_103802
• Last is Bronzer, not just any bronzer Natural Sun Kissed Bronzer. I’m a summer lover, I love the sun, the beach, the weather, but Ive been really trying to find something that was gonna give me that Jennifer Lopez glow or Kim Kardashians sun kissed look, this product does the trick with just 1 application. When it comes to bronzers its always a problem, with how to match it with your skin color, to give you the perfect glow, but this matches perfectly. The one that is shown, that I have is 020 Sunshine, and it completely gives me the sunshine look. This bronzer is waterproof, and stays on for 10+ hours. This is definitely on the list for best products of July.

Well, thats all FOLKS!! these are all the products in my Rimmel London Voxbox, hope you liked this post. And tell me whats your favorite summer product in comments.😍😍😊

XOXO
