 I just wanted to give a quick review on the revlon matte lipsticks. So when you go to the drugstore you have a basic idea on the formula and wear of the product itself. For one, I love the formula. It is smooth, rich in pigment and I love the smell of it too. I noticed when applying it the applicator glides over the lips giving even coverage of color. It claims to be a matte but it is not, it dries down but not completely (not like ABH or KVD). It leaves a sheen and a slip to your lips, and if you’re like me (always rubbing your lips together) you won’t really like the formula as much. But that really isn’t a big issue because I’m in love with the color. What I love most is how comfortable they are on the lips. They are not over drying and the lip color doesn’t crumble on the inside edge of your lips. It does transfer so be careful.  All in all, this product is great if your on a budget and if your not a lover of true matte lipsticks.

I hope you lovelies enjoy, please leave your thought in the comments. Share & like .

Eve Lom: Facial Cleanser

Hey Beautiful People,

I hope everyone is doing great! I’m going to be reviewing the Eve Lom Facial Cleanser. It is an oil based cleanser, and makeup remover. It claims to do 5 things in 1, decongests, exfoliates, tones, soothes, and deep cleanses to remove impurities and waterproof makeup. In my experience this product is amazing! It does exactly what it says it will plus more, It effortlessly dissolves my makeup. Removing my makeup takes up less time, which is great! This product is great for all skin types.

When I began using the Eve Lom I didn’t like the smell of it at all. It reminded me of something that comes from my Dad’s country. So I stopped using it for a while, then one night when I came home from work(being so tired), I didn’t want so many steps to remove my makeup. The Eve Lom was in front of me when I decided to use it. It was 2 quick simples steps & my makeup was completely removed. No raccoon eyes, no traces of makeup and my skin felt so hydrated, so soft and clean. In the many times I used it I noticed that my skin felt balanced and not tight and dry. I have gone through 2 1.0 oz. There are 3 sizes with 3 very different price ranges.

(S) 1.6 oz $50.00

(M) 3.3 oz $80.00

(L) 6.8 oz $135.00

   You can always ask for a sample at your local Sephora before committing to it. I definitely adore this product, so I do recommend it. If you decide to buy the cleanser it comes with a complimentary muslin cloth, which is especially made to work with the Eve Lom. I have used the cleanser with the muslin as well with my clarisonic, I have noticed with both ways you still get the same fascinating results. Clean hydrated skin, my makeup has definitely looked better since using this cleanser.

Overall, I love love love this cleanser!!

Kevyn Aucoin: The Contouring Book Vol II

Hey Beautiful People,

   I recently have been playing around with so much new makeup and One of those products happens to be the Kevyn Aucoin The Contouring book Vol II. This product is worth about $65 USD, and in my honest opinion it’s worth the price because you get so much in one palette. And if you’re the type to want the best bang for your buck (I sure do) this palette is one price for the value of multiple products. The KA contouring book is great for someone who is very minimal with their makeup. It is very versatile, it contains your contouring, highlight, brows & neutral eyeshadows for a very effortless everyday look, a chic work look, or even a dramatic bold eye.

To get on with the review, the packaging is a faux red leather covering with Kevyn Aucoin in Gold foil and it opens as a book and inside it there are instructional guides. It explains in full detail what each products does, how to use it and why. Flipping “the page” you get a standard mirror that which resembles the size of a man’s wallet. Which is great for someone who is starting out in makeup and for travel. On the back of the palette you get pro tips on how to use the highlight cream & powder.

Furthermore, This palette contains 4 powder eyeshadows, 1 powder contour, 1 powder highlight, 1 cream contour & 1 cream highlight. The eyeshadows, contour & highlight swatched so beautifully and the colors are very harmonious. The powders are so blendable, smooth and vivid in pigment, when using them start with very little and intensify as desired. The creams are silky, subtle in pigmentation but buildable, you can use the creams as a base for the powders to have a more defined and chisel look.  The only inconvenience regarding this palette which hinders it from being perfect is it’s lack of a blush. Nonetheless it’s a palette I would recommend to friends because it is an all around palette great for daily use, travel & for beginners.

Time to swatch!

To conclude, The Kevyn Aucoin The contouring Book Vol II is a great buy if you’re looking for something all in one, travel friendly or to begin your makeup journey. I sure don’t regret getting my hands on this palette. I hope you lovely ladies & Gents enjoyed my review and let me know your feedback or any other products you would like me to review.

Peace & Love ❤

Back in Action!

Hello beautiful people,

I know I have been away from blogging for over a year now. I drifted away from blogging and my youtube and so much other stuff I once had strong passions for. Due to this, I feel in myself a great disappointment because I’ve made great makeup friends out there that appreciate my work. During my brief hiatus, I unravelled a world of eternal self discovery. Since then, I’ve had so many beautiful experiences along my journey, it’s truly a blessing. In a nutshell, this year I was able to incite my passion for artistry again, and my promise to you is that I will display all of my love through my work and creations.

What I am trying to say is this, I’m Back in action! I’m going to be frequently blogging and posting as much as I can. whether on my mobile phone or laptop. I’m going to put all my love into everything I do and I hope you lovely ladies & gents will not only enjoy it but also connect with me & my artistry.

Peace & Love
