Touch in Sol | Mascara + duo chrome eyeshadow

mascara1.12

Hi Lovelies,

K- beauty have really been trending this year in makeup + skincare, trying new brands gives me an idea of what to look forward to with brands & products, well the brand I’ve reviewed recently is touch in sol. 

Touch in sol is a Korean brand, that was founded in Seoul, Korea. This particular brand creates affordable, fun beauty that showcases a variety from skincare to cosmetics. The brand develops products infused with natural botanical ingredients that are cruelty-free.

I have tested out 2 products from their inclusive line; first is a Voluminous mascara & the other is a dual duo-chrome eyeshadow.

Stretchex stretch lash effect mascara

The Stretchex mascara is a volume infused mascara; enriched with silk protein to protect and elongate the lashes. I love this mascara the formula is not heavy & doesn’ t contain a lot of wax, no one wants spider lashes, this is a very build-able mascara, which you can manipulate how thick you want your lashes. The wand is curved and able to get each individual lash. The application is very beauty and the lash wear is impressive. I know we all been through the moments of taking off makeup, and the process can be long, but this mascara comes off with no problem; using something light like Baby oil, or Urban decay meltdown makeup remover gets it off super fast! super easy. This mascara is $22 USD, which falls in the price range of luxury brands. Now, is the product a bit expensive? yeaahhh, but like luxury brands, you question whether you’re paying for product or brand, in this case it’s both. K- beauty is a highly favored brand now a days, but as far as the product itself, it works as it advertise.

Metallist liquid foil & glitter duo shadow

Let’s chit chat on this product, liquid shadows have been the Gag! of the world of eyeshadow; and when you think about every brand jumped on the band wagon to create them from L’Oreal to Stila cosmetics, & K- beauty has joined the crew. Touch in sol have created foil/glitter duo shadows coming in various shades. The shades come in 9 different shades( swatched below) and the one I got to try was the shade Eldora, which was a pigmented Gold shimmer and a pressed gold foil.

I really love the shade it’s really gold and creamy when applying, it does dry out a bit when blending, but as an all over shadow it works. The shadow has an angled doe foot  applicator, which allows a lot of manipulation in how much product is applied, so that’s definitely an advantage. The foil side has a flat spatula applicator to pack on the product, I really like this, just enough product comes out, but the fallout is so crazy, friendly warning! I would just say be careful, so glitter doesn’t get in your eye. I really like this shadow duo, it’s price is $24 USD, which is again a luxury price range, but you’re getting 2 shadow choices for the price.

So what you think about K-beauty, have you tried the brand? Will you be trying the duo shadows? If so, “like” this post and “comment” if you love K’beauty……….

Becca |#BECCAbrighteyes

Hi Lovelies,

So if you’ve taken college classes, morning, noon, or night; you know the feeling, of not being energized and having to survive on that early cup of starbucks, but Becca cosmetics has provided a 3 step eye trick that will give us that trying-not- trying bright eye look.

becca.1

Influenster sent out a bunch of Becca bright eye boxes, for us beauty bloggers and enthusiasts to try and I was super excited. Of course, a new product hits the shelf, the first thing I do, do my research on youtube. 

After ransacking the internet, here’s what I found out.

Becca.6

#BECCAbrighteyes comes with 3 products;

Becca Anti Fatigue eye primer

This under eye primer is meant for not only smooth application, but helps fight fatigue, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The first step, prep and prime the skin before concealer. The product is infused with Antioxidant, and green tea, which leaves the skin with a natural glow, and smooth feeling. This product retails for $32, and comes in a hand held compact. 

The anti fatigue primer, feels so smooth to the touch, I feel that the price is a little pricey, for the size, but the product itself is worth it. 

Becca.8Becca.3

Becca Bright eye Corrector

The corrector is concealer that neutralizes dark under eye circles. This retails for $32. 

The bright eye corrector is the 2nd step to achieving #BECCAbrighteye look. This concealer is creamy, and laid over the primer achieves a natural look, without creasing into your “designer bags” I really think the concealer works well, but I’m sure you can find any concealer that will work well.

BECCA bright eyes Setting Powder

Setting the face is the final step…almost there! After priming and concealing, time to set the eyes, to be sure your eyes do not crease throughout the day. The setting powder is very fine, which doesn’t cause chunky product to ruin the look. The setting powder is enriched with Raspberry stem cells, and Australian berries, that will give you that healthy boost of energy in the skin. The setting powder retails for $25.  

After using all 3 products I think the products work really well together, the price you’ll be paying for the entire kit is $89, Wheww, thank goodness for free samples. But I think you can find similar products for much cheaper, I recommend all products, but I think the star product is the primer.

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you like reviews/posts be sure to “LIKE” and “COMMENT” Also have you tried the #BECCAbrighteye 3 step kit, if so let me know.

These complimentary samples were provided by Influenster for review, all opinions were my own.

Baby, Its cold outside….

Hi Loves,

When it comes to winter weather, the only thing you want to do is snuggle under a ton of blankets and watch reruns of Sex and the City w/ hot chocolate ( or wine), but there are those cold mornings when you have to leave the comfort of home to the outside bitterness, and who says you can’t be casual comfort, to take on the day. Here are some wonderful outfits and choices that will actually leave you feeling warm inside, and hot outside.

Over sized Sweaters

 

Cable Knit oversized sweaters |Cableknit Pullover |Bow Tie knit sweater

When it comes to over sized sweaters, its always best to buy them a size up, because “the bigger, the better.” With the brisk wind of the winter, over size will save your life, unless you live in California. I really like slouchy sweaters, the way they hang off jeans, looks like your not trying at all, which isn’t that the look we been trying to pull off for years. 

Tell me do you love Oversize sweaters?

MOM JEANS????

Ripped knee Loose jeans | Bleach Washed mom jeans

Mom Jeans?? I know who would have thought this would be the trend of trends. In all fairness mom jeans are the perfect jeans for the winter trends. Mom jeans fit loose but , tight in the right places, if you pick wisely. I put mom jeans on the list because, they can be worn with just about anything, and pairing them with an oversize hoodie, or jacket, bumps up the look 110%.

Thigh High Boots

Lacy Thigh high boots | Faux Suede Camel Thigh high boots | Pointed Toe faux leather boots

Its no doubt, thigh high boots are the #1 fashion essentials for the winter. Thigh highs, are just the main attraction of any outfit, also if you want those long model legs, these provide that illusion.

I hope you enjoyed this fashion post, and tell me in the comments what’s your favorite thing about the winter?

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?
