Zoya Mallory

Hey y’all! I finally squeezed in some time to catch up on my blog. Lots of posts coming up! Today’s blog post is on a shade from Zoya’s Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Collection. Here’s Zoya Mallory.

Zoya Mallory

Mallory is a very beautiful blue crème shade. This is quite a unique blue shade for a nail polish in my opinion. It is not periwinkle but it certainly made me think of that color. It is described as “a full-bodied, Prussian blue with deeply saturated color”. Formula is really nice but this shade strikes me as a potential stainer. Definitely use base coat with this. Shown is one with no top coat.

ipsy July 2017 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I’m so excited about this month’s bag! I get this excited when the bag itself is something I’m in love with. Here’s my take on the ipsy July 2017 Glam Bag.

ipsy July 2017 Glam Bag

Eeeeeeeeeeeee! It’s so freaking cute!!! I’ve always liked Sanrio stuff and some characters more than others. I would be lying if I said I didn’t know who this little guy is. I’ve seen him become quite popular in the last year or so. Now onto the products! First up is 111SKIN Space Defence Bright Eye Gel. Quite a unique product name and I’m curious to see how it performs. Stay tuned in a few months to see what my thoughts are on this. Next up is Trifle Cosmetics Raspberry Ripple Ombré Radiance Blush Palette. The shades look promising and I’m actually tempted to use this but I think I will pass this on to one of my nieces. The theme and packaging are really cute and nice. Then we have the Ciaté Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner. The shade I got this in is black. This seems to be in the formula that I like most for eyeliners where it’s a pencil but with some moisture to it that you can make sharp lines. Next we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea™ Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. This is good to use for waterproof makeup so I’m quite eager to put it to the test. Last up is Beau Gâchis Illuminator Brush. I made sure I did the review on ipsy for this month as I mentioned before when I retook the quiz that I don’t want any more makeup brushes. The only ones I use (if at all) are big fluffly ones like my IT Cosmetic ones.

Bag aside, I do like most of what I got this month. I already gave myself the expectation that next month’s bag will be nothing compared to this one due to my excitement over Gudetama! Haha!

Zoya Courtney

Hey y’all! I finally squeezed in some time to catch up on my blog. Lots of posts coming up! Today’s blog post is on a shade from Zoya’s Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Collection. Here’s Zoya Courtney.

Zoya Courtney

Courtney is a pretty dark red crème shade. I am not a huge darker reds but this looks better than I thought it would. It is described as “deep red beet root shade with a full coverage, and smooth application”. Formula is on the thicker side and I can still see my nail line with 2 coats. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

It’s one of the more unique ones in my stash.

ipsy June 2017 Glam Bag

Hey guys! It’s been a busy few weeks for me here. Just trying to enjoy summer but there’s always work, chores and a hell of a lot of other stuff. But again, better late than never (heck, I just got my ispy Julu G;am Bag yesterday!) so here’s my take on the ipsy June 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag is made of canvas material I think. It’s functional but not really my style but that’s quite alright as someone else will get good use out of it. First item that caught my eye is the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream. It’s really hard not to notice it with such bright color for product packaging. Next up is the NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé. I’m not sure if I’ll try this out or not. I’m trying to minimize my makeup stash at the moment. The shade I got this in is Cocoa Bean. Then we have the Hey Honey Uncover Detoxifying Mud Mask. I like face masks, especially mud based ones so watch out for a review on it soon. Next we have the theBalm Balm Springs Blush. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — LOVE their packaging even the small ones like this. It’s so darn cute. I think I can rock this shade so it’s a keeper. Last up is Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. It’s going to my gifting pile as I have too many mascaras lined up to try already.

I wish the bag was different but can’t complain cause I’m so in love with July’s bag! 🙂

Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment

Hey guys! It’s the second day of June! What are you looking forward to today? Mine is the start of a nice weekend of course! But I’m also counting down the days until USPS puts up the Andrew Wyeth stamps up for pre-order on their website. I love using different stamps every time when writing to my pen pals. But anyway, today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag. Here’s my thoughts on the Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment.

Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment

What I love about this product? It’s easy to use and comes in the standard tube packaging that some hair products come in. Packaging is quite attractive with the choice of colors. Scent is quite pleasant although not close to being real jasmine in my opinion. The product itself has a very light tint of blue to my eyes (but it could be my bathroom lighting). It works good as a hair conditioner but that’s it really. When I say that I mean that it felt like it performed as well as a regular hair conditioner. It’s readily available online and in several retail locations worldwide. Pricing isn’t bad at all especially if you catch these on sale from either online or retail locations that carry it.

What I don’t like about this product? The main thing would be that I expected it to perform like other deep conditioners I’ve used. This is basically like any other regular hair conditioner to me. It did feel great with the slip that it gives my hair when in the shower but so does a lot of regular hair conditioners. I expected my hair to be extra soft afterwards and it wasn’t there really. It didn’t make a difference whether I let my hair air dry or blow dried it with a hair dryer. Now while this didn’t work for me doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t work for you. I’ve read other reviews online that gave this product stellar ratings. It just didn’t work for me.
