Using the Maybelline Master Chrome, Molten Rose gold has my highlight.

I will then use Cover Fix setting spray and use my beauty blender to blend and set everything together.

For mascara, I will be using the Lancome Grandiose. For lipstick, I will be going for a natural color, so saying that I will be using NYX Lingerie LIPLI03.

That is all for today, I will see you all next Monday.

With love,

Dermalogica Review

Hello everyone, happy Monday. I hope everyone is having a great day. So far, I’m having an amazing day, did an hr of total body workout and now I feel amazing. Plus drinking my wonderful ketones also helps with everything.

20190401_104005

So let’s get started, grab your coffee or ketones or whatever you drink is today and let’s do this.

The last two years, I been fighting with acne since my daughter was born, at first I thought maybe my hormonal change my skin type, where before I was dry but maybe now I was oily. So I changed my skin routine to oil control. Well, I found that made my skin worse and super dry, like beyond dry. So I definitely didn’t have oily skin, I must still have dry skin.

img_20190313_090818_77520190318_133746 

I never had acne in my teenage life or most of my adult life, so I had no clue how to deal with acne and this was new territory to me. I was on a hunt for the cure, google research, asking people advice, and everything under the sun to deal with this.

I tried so many products (Clinique, Mary Kay, Vichy, Boscia, Spectro, Fresh, and Bioderma) so many different routines. I always gave each product a fair chance and used up all the product before switching to another one. The one product that definitely helped a lot and did help somewhat clear has much of my acne was the Mary Kay Timeless but didn’t clear my skin up but helped prevent more acne from forming.

So finally I found a product that is working for my skin after 4 days of using it and now I can’t wait to start buying the full-size product. I was introduced to Dermalogica when I went to get my brows done at a new place (my brows looks amazing by the way), the person who did my brows, she also does facially. She was telling my skin was dehydrated and gave me a couple of samples of Dermalogica to try.

What the difference between Dry and Dehydrated Skin?

Dry skin lacks moisture, tends to feel dry all over. including on hands and scalp, more susceptible to aging, and needs oil-rich products.

Dehydrated skin lacks water, can feel oily and dry simultaneously, may experience breakouts, comes and goes depending on diet, environment, incorrect product use, and other factors, and needs water-rich products.

You can have both Dry and Dehydrated skin, which means your skin can be flaky, itchy, sensitive, tight and dull. Which is what I have, I have both dry and dehydrated skin.

Now I know what I skin type was, I can finally tackle my skin and help it healed.

20190329_065325

After trying the sample product of Dermalogic after 1 use, I fall in love and went on Sephora and order the Dermalogic UltraCalming Skin Kit. Which includes, UltraCalming Cleanser, Redness Relief Essence, UltraCalming Serum Concentrate, and Calm Water Gel.

UltraCalming Cleanser is a gentle cleanser that helps calm redness and soothes sensitive skin. I love this cleanser, it doesn’t leave my skin red, irritated or tight and just makes my skin feel better.

20190401_101958

Redness Relief is a redness-reducing essence that calms and restores balance to sensitive skin. This product is amazing, I put it on and it calms my redness on my cheeks and forehead down instantly and keeps it down all day.

20190401_102149

UltraCalming Serum Concentrate is a super-concentrated serum that helps calm, restore and defend sensitized skin. This is a miracle worker, this works within 3 minutes, all redness is gone, and makes my skin feel fresh and cool.

20190401_102309

Calm Water Gel is a weightless water-gel moisturizer that hydrates dry, sensitive skin. OMG, I fall in love with this product, I love everything about this product. Starts out as a gel and turns into a liquid texture. It is beyond hydrating and lightweight, my skin feels so soft, so hydrating and just overall amazing.

20190401_102415

After using this product for 4 days, I noticed a big difference in my skin, and now I’m going to try and buy the full products 1 time at a time. I can’t wait to see in a month the difference in my skin. Plus you should see my face wearing makeup using this new skin routine. I highly recommend Dermalogica, I’m so grateful for being introduced to this product and can’t wait in a month time what my skin looks like.

20190401_120704-120190401_120613-1

That is all for today, I hope you guys loved this post and I will keep you updated in 1 month if this product is still doing wonders on my skin.

I hope you all have a wonderful day,

Love,

Chelsey

 

Monday is mask day part 2

Welcome, back everyone. Today is mask day, I will be testing out Boscia.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

On sephora, it’s states, an innovative, powerful, mineral-rich mask infused with activated charcoal that peels off to deliver powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects.

Solutions for:

  • Dullness and uneven texture.
  • Pores.
  • Oiliness.

How to use:

  • Apply a thick, opaque, even layer to clean, dry skin.
  • Avoid eye area.
  • Do not apply to eyebrows, hairline, or lips.
  • Leave on for 25 minutes or until completely dry.
  • Gently peel off mask from outer edges.
  • Rinse off any residue with warm water.

20 mins later, it still wet in some areas, going to keep it on for another 20 mins.

Time to peel off this mask.

I love peeling this mask off, it’s so satisfying.

Halfway done.

All done, now time to wash off but first let’s look what came off.

Wow, look at those whiteheads and tiny hairs 😂. My skin does feel and look, clear, clean, smooth, and bright.

Final results. I love this mask, only one con tho you really have to put a lot on because if you don’t it hard to peel off; but other than that it really good peel off mask. It clings to the gunk and pulls it out. Leaving your face feeling amazing.

Here Sophie cat, with a big Lysol wipes.

Well that’s it for now.

Till next

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

I love when Sephora has their sales around November and they have their holiday gifts sets out (which are amazing). So this would be a good time to shop for a Christmas presents for someone or treat yourself.

So with this set, you get Melted Matte in Drop Dead Red, Melted Latex in Hopeless Romantic, Melted Lipstick in Chihuahua, and Melted Lipstick in Chocolate Honey. All for C$32.00 that retails for C$59.00 value, to me that a steal and I need those lipsticks in my life.

2. Boscia Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask C$90.00. The reason why I’m buying this, I have the Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask, which I love, I am doing a review of that product on Monday. So back to the pink charcoal mask, I figured since I love the black charcoal mask, I’m hoping I would really like the pink one. What it is, an innovative, limited-edition, a mineral-rich mask made with activated black charcoal that peels off to deliver powerfully detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects; a colorful collaboration from Boscia and valley cruise press. That straight off Sephora. For Reviews, it got 3.8/5 stars. Not terrible but not good. I did read some of the reviews and some people love it and some have cons but that with any products.

3. Becca Apres Ski Glow Collection: Eye Lights Palette C$35.00, Original Price C$54.00. Reason for buying: I’m thinking on blogging wearing a full face using one brand, So doing a full face using only Becca products, Maybelline, Drugstore, etc. When I saw that this beautiful eye palette is for sale for $35 dollars, I had to pick it up. This palette includes seven shades, which have a mix of satin and shimmer. This palette got a 4.1/5 Stars. So I can’t wait to get my hands on it and test it out.

4. Boscia Tsubaki Jelly Ball Cleanser C$26.00. Reason for buying: honesty when I scroll the holiday gifts section and saw this, I was interested and curious by it. Plus with 4.8/5 stars, I wanted it more. What is it: a limited-edition, jelly-textured cleansing ball that hydrated and replenishes skin with Tsubaki oil. Basically, it a pink ball and you use it to clean your face.

On Sephora website, an oil-absorbing powder that mattifies skin and sets makeup for a long-lasting soft-focus look. These non-dying microfine powder controls shine without adding noticeable color or texture for sheer coverage in a matte finish. Imperfection is softened while the appearance of pores is minimized for a velvet-smooth finish. This product got 4.3/5 stars, and have wonderful reviews and handful of bad reviews but definitely worth to try it.

Well, that what in my cart and with my 20% off and free shipping it really a good deal. I know there was a lot more in my cart that would love to get but I did cut a lot out. I’m one of those people who go ooo, I want all the things and put it in my cart and when finish shopping and go to my cart and see my total and be like nope, nope, nope lol.

Covergirl Total Tease Mascara Review

Welcome back everyone, today I will be reviewing Covergirl Total Tease Mascara.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

The face is all done, except for the mascara part.

Today’s look is brought to you by:

  • Fenty Beauty Foundation
  • Tarte Rainforest of the Sea 2
  • Becca under eye corrector
  • Becca Backlight primer
  • bare minerals invisible light
  • Marc Jacobs Coconut Mist
  • No bronzer or Blush today

On the CoverGirl website, it states, full length. Refined. Sexy, teased lashes! Use the lash teasing mascara comb for ease and control to tease even the tiniest corner lashes for a full, voluminous look. Dark, defined lashes that last all day!

Ok, I’m excited to try this mascara, so let’s get started.

The first thing, the brush is beyond weird. One side has a tease on the end and the other side is just a regular mascara. So after applying the mascara, I disliked the wand. I end up stabbing my eye when trying to coat my eyelash. I don’t know if anyone else had that problem when using it or is it just me problem lol. Bottom line the brush is awkward to use.

So after two coats and stabbing my eyes, I really disliked the formula for this mascara. I found the formula is messy, clumpy, and flaked when I was putting it on. It didn’t give me that full long lashes that I love and try to aim for. It did fan out my lashes but by the end of the day, I have black flakes under my eyes.

Bottom Line: I give this 1 out of 5 stars, and I would Not recommend this to a friend. Save your money for something better. So disappointed 😦

Well that it for today, my friends, until next time.

XOXO,

Makeup Sponge Set Review

Welcome back, sorry I haven’t posted in a week. I got the lovely flu, still have an annoying cough and the little sniffles but now that my head is clear, I can finally blog again.😂

So grab your coffee, pull up a set, and let’s get started.

So today I will be reviewing sears sponge set that I bought for $5.95 Can dollars.

In the package, you get 4 sponges. On the Sears website, 4pcs Pro Beauty Flawless Makeup Blender Foundation Puff Multi Shape Sponges. Blends easily work great with your foundations, concealers, etc. Use the bottom of it for the larger parts of your face and the pointy end for around your nose and eyes. Great for applying a cream, mineral, and liquid foundation along with cream, concealers and mineral blush. Remember to wet it to lightly damp before you dip it in makeup.

I will be using three out the four sponges. So after wetting them they definitely enlarge. So far the sponges remind me of the beauty blender, they not stiff, and they are bounciness.

For foundation, I will be using Fit Me in 110. I will put a small dap of foundation on the back of my hand and then be dipping my pink sponge in it and be place dots all over my face. Now time to bounce all over my face.

Ok, so I really like this sponge, it did the job perfectly, did soak up a bit of product but not much.

Close up on the face to see how well it applied the foundation to my face. I should have done one side with a brush and the other side with the sponge. Maybe next time.

Time to use the small sponge to apply my concealer. This sponge is amazing, the size is perfect for the under the eye. Blends flawless, and the point was perfect for the inner corner eye.

Taking the purple sponge, I will be using this to apply loose translucent powdered. Once again love the size for of this sponge and it blended so well but it did soak up a bit of the makeup.

Now time to finish the face.

The face is all done, so the sponge for the price they are amazing, they did hold water, so make sure you dry out all the water out before using or you end up water on your face, happened to me the second time I used them. They do soak up a bit of the product but not by much, so that no big deal for me. Other than those two cons, I love the sponges, the different sizes, they blend flawlessly, work with any makeup that I tried so far ( I have been using them all week to test them out) and the price is specular.

Sears Makeup Sponge Set gets 4.5/5 stars for me.

Well that all for now,

xoxo,

Take off the day with me!

Hello everyone, welcome back.

Today I will be talking about taking off my makeup routine.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

Today is not just any makeup look, it’s my scarecrow makeup.

I won’t be changing any of my regular routine because I know my routine can take it off with no problem.

First, I will be using the Clinique take the day off.

On the Clinique website, Take the day off cleansing balm is a lightweight makeup remover quickly dissolves tenacious eye and face makeups, sunscreens. Transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil upon application. Cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely.

This stuff is amazing and melts the makeup off with no problem.

Usually, I only need a small amount but where I’m wearing tons of makeup, I’m going to use more than I usually do.

See what I mean, melt the makeup right off. Now time to wash it off, using warm water.

So beautiful lol now time to clean the face, using the Clinique liquid facial cleanser. On the website, liquid facial soap, our guiding dermatologists believe in simple, effective cleansing: soap and water. Soft, non-drying lather cleans gently, rinses easily.

I love this cleanser, it does the job unbelievably well.

So much better. Now time to use the toner. I will be using Clinique clarifying lotion. P.s I’m not sponsored by Clinique, I just really love their skin care. I dislike their makeup line but their skin care is amazing.

On the website, clarifying lotion, dermatologist – developed formula helps reveal fresher skin. Sweeps away dulling flakes and excess oil so moisturizer can do its job better.

Can’t believe there was still makeup left.

Now time to lip scrub those lips. I will be using Fresh sugar face polish. I know it, not lip scrub, I ran out and debating what to get or try.

On the fresh website, sugar face polish with nourishing brown sugar is an innovative formula for all skin types that exfoliates and hydrates the skin, instantly revealing a softer, smoother, more radiant complexion.

So I will be scrubbing that in my lips and then wiping it off, using a wet cloth.

Now time to moisturizer, I really love this moisturizer for night time, I’m almost out and I’m debating on buying it.

Tatcha, the water cream, on the website, an oil-free, anti-aging water cream that releases a burst of skin-improving Japanese nutrients, powerful botanicals, and optimal hydration for poreless-looking skin.

Love this moisturizer for my lips. Jersey Shore, lavender moisture rich hydrating balm.

Can’t forget the eyes. I will be using Lancome Visionnaire Yeux Eye on correction.

There you have it.

How do you take your makeup off?

Till next time,

Xoxo

Becca Backlight VS First Light primers

Hello everyone, welcome back 🙂

Today I will be doing versus. I decided to do the backlight primer VS first light primer. Now I know both offers different benefits but what one offers better looks or last longer, and makes the makeup looks amazing.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get to it.

Picture of the makeup that I will be using today.

Ok, my eyes are done. For today’s eye look, I used Becca posocco pop and Tarte rainforest of the sea. Under eye, Becca under eye corrector. Now time for primers, I will be using the first light on my right side of myself.

On the Becca website, first light priming filter instant complexion refresh is a skin-awakening primer that instantly erases the signs of a bad face day to leave the complexion fresh, awake and hydrated. A wake up call for the skin, First Light brightens lackluster and dull skin and instantly refreshes the complexion. Skin goes from dull, dry and fatigues to hydrated, healthy and awake.

I love this primer, if you haven’t noticed, I use it pretty much everyday. The primer definitely brightens my skin and hydrated my skin.

For the left side I will be using the backlight primer.

On the Becca website, Backlight priming filter creates a canvas for your makeup, extending its wear from day to night. Backlighting acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch light for a glowing look.

I love this primer for when I want that dewy look .

Here what they look like side by side. Can notice a big difference between the two.

On my right side, I can noticed a brightness to my skins, hydrated, and my laugh lines are diminished.

I found I can see and feel the difference between the two sides already. The first light feels tacky and the backlight feels moisturizer. Also with the backlight, my left side of my face looks dewy, it has this glow to it.

Now to get my face on.

Foundation: Fenty Beauty, shade 160

Concealer: Becca Aqua luminous

Setting powder: BareMinerals invisible light, Marc Jacobs coconut spray

Bronzer and Blush: Quo sunny days and PF butter blush in plum rose

Mascara: L’oreal lash paradise

Lipstick: Tarte homeslice

Finally look. So I will update the rest of day on how each side look.

Around 4 o’clock, both side look a beautiful. Also note the lipstick is still the same, I did not touch up on it either. Love this lipstick, thank you Boxycharm.

Around 7pm, both sides are holding up great.

Last picture before I take off my makeup. Both sides still looks stunning. Both hold the makeup unbelievable well. I can’t decide which primers I love more. I do use the first light more but if I want that dewy, glow look I would use the backlight.

What primer do you use the most?

Talk to you later,

xoxo,
