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.

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.

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.

TED HAIR | Review

Hi Lovelies,

 

So if you haven’t seen my last post, it probably would be best to read that post, then come back to this one. As it seems, one thing that is constantly changing is HAIR, and with the whole, ” new year, new me” attitude there are bound to be bold changes that you want to make, but the real question, what is best?

Ted Hair, hair suppliers, wholesale hair, is a hair trading manufacturing company that provides the best quality for big beauty businesses, also it’s in partnership with Best hair buy, which I talked about in my last post. There are tons of hair manufacturers that provide the leading products for local beauty salons and big beauty businesses world wide. 

Ted Hair  provide premium hair extensions to wholesalers, distributors, retailers, beauty or hair salons, online stores and hair stylists around the world. Ted Hair supply virgin Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair, Malaysian hair, Indian hair, closures, colored Remy hair and more.

As we continue are lessons on hair 101, we know the basics of Peruvian, Indian, Brazilian, and Malaysian. These are the top sellers for Virgin hair wholesale

For real virgin hair, it is normal that the color shade from the top to ends, as we all know the longer hair the lesser nutrition will reach to ends, usually virgin hair ends will be lighter than top and middle. For example, the top and the middle are black shade to ends 1b or even lighter at last 2~4 inches, that’s also split ends area.

Virgin hair tends to be the leading selling hair, as it is more natural, and easier to blend with any significant type of hair. When it comes to virgin hair, it is processed with natural fibers, so hair is able to react with natural elements, the way real hair does. Virgin hair is long lasting, if taken care of properly, like skin, if you take care of it long enough you’re able to keep a youthful appearance, in this case its hair. Virgin hair comes in more natural tones like browns, black, and reds, unlike synthetic, which can come in any shade you want, so if you want rainbow, synthetic hair is for you. 

Another thing that is increasingly being sold is hair extensions. Wholesale Hair extensions, comes in bundles, and are able to be sewn into you hair, or can be made into clip-ins. Extensions, can be made into wigs, or separate extensions to be placed where ever you have thin hair, or want he full “Jersey Shore” look (LOL).

I hope you enjoyed this post, for all my hair fanatics, if you could change your hair to any color, What would it be?

Couleurs Cosmetics Review & Swatch

2017-03-03-14-53-061

Hi Lovelies.

I have a ton of goodies to share with you “Beauty community”, starting right now. NO rambling. Couleurs Cosmetics recently sent me a PR package of some of their liquid lipsticks, matte lipsticks, and some matte lip liners. If you don’t know of the beauty brand here’s a little insight;

“Couleurs Cosmetics is a beauty brand with special formulation and colors to cater to women of all ethnicities.

So now that you know a little about the brand, I got to try and swatch,  of each of their lipsticks, liquid lips, and the lip liners. I was excited to swatch these shades, they are all matte shades, pigmented AF, and are cruelty free, which is always a plus.

What I swatched were all products in the shades; Balancy, Paloma, Barbra, Couleur, Risque, Elveda, Provence, Naked, and Haiti. The formulas of the lip products all come in very matte formulas, not drying matte, but more of velvet matte form where its not drying and it doesn’t feel like it’s dragging on the lips. The collection contains of 10 liquid shades, 10 ultra matte lipsticks, and 5 lip liners. 

The liquid lipsticks are very nice, they apply as sheer and are not heavy on the lips. The liquid lipsticks that I swatched all were very pretty, the shade that was my favorite was the nude shade in “Paloma” it was nice and buildable, especially with the help of the lip liner. The deep purple shade, Balancy, was a little streak-y, but Violet shades are always hard to come across a perfect shade, but though that one con, it still applies nicely and can build to the shade outside the tube. The ultra matte lipsticks all had brilliant performances, they all showed up nicely and with one stroke is very pigmented. I loved all the shades that I was given and I will be doing more looks on my INSTA with this shade.
