Kat Von D Shade + Light Blush Review:

I am not 100 percent sure of Kat Vin D’ s Shade + Light Blush will be coming back to Sephora or on the KVD website, but in case they do glamour babes, I suggest you hold on to your $25 and save it for a rainy day or possibly a better makeup haul. These two tone blushes leave something to be desired.

I was lucky enough to find four (Hansel & Gretel, Mickey & Mallory, Sid & Nancy, and Bonnie & Clyde) of the seven Shade + Light blushes at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s for $6.99 each, and was excited to try them after my positive experience with KVD’s Everlasting Liqiuid Lipstick.

Sadly, my blush experience was not a positive one, sighhhhhhh.

Hansel (dark) is terracotta & Gretel (light) is apricot.Bonnie (dark) is raspberry pink & Clyde (light) is lilac.Mickey (dark) is a baked peach & Mallory (light) is a porcelain pink.
Sid (dark) is a bright tulip & Nancy (light) is a ballet pink.
The not so innovative two in one matte finish blushes apply very sheer, blotchy, uneven, and did not wear long (4 hours). The build ability turned out to be weak as well. Did you see the semi-sheer mediocre flush of color in my photos? Yea, that’s four applications worth on my cheeks. At least it didn’t turn out cakey, now there’s a perk! Lol. The finely milled powder produced a ton of kickback, making my sink rather colorful, and my swatches applied quite chalky, and streaky. I had to trace over the swatches repeatedly for the color depth to appear somewhat vibrantly on my wrist, it was a little tedious. My blush pans did manage to stay in the compacts though.

 I have read other reviews that they do fall out after awhile due to the cheap adhesive applied to the backs of each one. Not cool, if you actually paid $25. A compact shouldn’t be made so poorly when charging so much for the finished product, just sayin is all.

At least I got four for the price of one when you think about it, I can’t be too disappointed. Have you tried Kat Von D’s Shade + Light Blush? What do you think of them? Money well spent or nah?

BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Duo (Caribbean Coral and Fiji Fun) Review:

Wow, BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Color has some serious pigment glamour babes, and I am hooked! This is yet another company I found through Instagram that I think is worth trying, especially if you love affordability and cruelty free makeup. BH Cosmetics also carries vegan products, hooray! Just click on the link http://makeup.bhcosmetics.com/bhcosmetics/Vegan-Products, and from there you will see all the vegan friendly goods available to you. It’s a win, win situation for us animal lovers! Sorry boys and gals, the Floral Blush Duos that I am about to review are not vegan, but BH has plenty of gorgeous options for you to try.

On with the review!

BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Duos come in tones of pink, coral, berry, and bronze. And, at $5.50 a pop, which is currently the sale price on their site, I picked two out of the four; Caribbean Coral and Fiji Fun.
Caribbean Coral is a duo of pink and peach corals.

Fiji Fun is a duo of lively rich mauve’s and berries. Each one has two complimentary shades, bright and deep. Swirl both shades together to create a vibrant multidimensional glow, or wear them separately for a healthy flush of color. The possibilities are endless!

The formulation is lightweight, silky smooth, finely milled (kick back dust alert), and have great pigmentation. The satin finish blushes apply evenly and easily producing no streaks or patchiness, making them super buildable and suitable for all skin tones when wanting a noticeable set of colorful cheeks. These blushes are just what I needed to bring color back into my complexion as the fall season transitions to winter.
I use a very light hand with the Floral Blushes because of the high vibrancy. I gradually pick up color with my brush (BH Cosmetics Deluxe Fan Brush) as I begin applying, so I don’t end up looking like an utter clown. I wish not to be apart of the Ringling Brothers Circus anytime soon, lol.

The long lasting wear isn’t bad either. These tropical inspired duos stay put for 9 hours if not longer. A girl’s gotta wash her face at some point, lol. Pretty incredible for a $5 investment, right?!

Sleek, portable, with a mirror, and magnetic closure.

 BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Cheek Duo compacts set the tone for paradise anytime, anywhere!

Mai Tai anyone?!

Stay beautiful! Xo.


Pixi Glowtion Day Dew Review:

If you haven’t tried Pixi’s Glowtion Day Dew yet. My suggestion to you glamour babes is to pick this brightening lotion up! It is errrmazing, and definitely worth the $22 at Target. Your highlight will always be on fleek when using this radiance booster.

I’m so happy I was able to put this extra skin treat in my goodie bag during the Pixi event! Thank you Leilani! You have made me a Glowtion worshipper for life!

I use this face moisturizer in conjunction with Pixi’s Overnight Glow Serum ($24), and the results of using the two have been nothing but stellar so far, I swear by them. I haven’t been this content by the overall appearance of my skin in a long time. My skin looks fresh, visibly even, and bright throughout the day.
Alright, enough bragging about my gorgeous complexion, lol. Let me share the wonderful benefits with you!
Infused with lavender oil, kaolin, and mica. All three help calm, purify, and brighten skin, making it look healthier, more even, and radiant.

Light reflective pigments help blur skin imperfections and reduce the size of large pores. I do have a few of those hovering above my cheekbones, and Pixi’s Glowtion potion glides right over them flawlessly.
This daytime moisturizer is lightweight, gentle, nourishing, hydrating, has the calming scent of lavender, and is comfortable to wear. And, it’s ideal for dull, dehydrated, and congested skin types as well as sensitive.

Add a few drops to your foundation, BB cream, CC cream, and concealer as a base to create an ethereal skin finish. These are a few of my favorites that I happened to use today to create my glow. 

Here I am! Full of glitz and glam! Oooohhh, la la, me likely! Or, wear it alone on a good skin day, it looks just as beautiful. Skin looks smooth, naturally healthy, feels hydrated, and imperfections are softened.

I use about two pumps if I decide to wear Pixi’s Glowtion Day Dew alone. That’s the perfect amount of moisturizer for a full face application. Anymore than that, you’ll be wasting your money, and a good product. Waste not, want not, that’s my motto!
Have you tried Pixi’s Glowtion Day Dew?! What are your thoughts?! Is your skin glowing with glee?! Or is your skin still lacking vibrance and vitality?

Dew share!

Stay beautiful, xo.


Pacifica Future Youth Enzymatic Resurfacing Mask Review:

I foresee my skin’s future glamour babes, and it looks bright! Pacifica’s Future Youth Enzymatic Resurfacing Mask ($18 for a 1.5oz jar) is an instant solution for dull skin, and I am here to tell you all about it!

Formulated with all natural ingredients like Kale, Papain, and Kelp. This lovely lightweight, gelatinous gel mask helps remove and decongest surface debris, and dead skin, giving your complexion a revitalized, youthful glow.

Pacfica’s Resurfacing Mask acts like an intensive peel, minus the abrasion, time, and irritation. Ahhhhh, there’s nothing like a gentle quick fix when wanting a refreshed appearance overnight, and you will see results overnight, no exaggeration.

I used this mask before bed, and I could not believe my eyes the next morning. Glowing, flawless beautiful skin was what I saw before me as I gazed at my reflection in the mirror. Oh yea, it was indeed a skin transformation I needed and so desperately wanted.
I have quite a bit of acne scars, and I do get small whiteheads on the sides of my temples due to clogged pores because of my oily skin, leaving a slight bumpy texture and feel when I touch my face that drives me bonkers, I feel like a scaled reptile, lol. This grassy scented mask multi-tasks and takes care of it all. My skin is exfoliated, the texture is a lot smoother, pores are no longer congested, and I feel like a whole new person, lol.

You can use this mask all over or as a spot treatment. It can stay on the skin for as long as 20 minutes, and used as often as needed. I apply a thin layer of Pacifica’s Future Youth mask about three times a week all over, and I keep it on for 15 minutes at a time, and there has been no irritations or additional breakouts whatsoever.
This mask is said to be ideal for dry to normal skin, but I think it’s fantastic for oily skin too, which is the skin type I have. Everything gets sloughed away gently and effectively, bringing new life to my complexion. I love waking up to a healthy glow in the morning, it just makes my day a little more dazzling (Ding! Sparkle, sparkle).

Ulta is once again having a fabulous BOGO sale on Pacfica’s skincare in stores and online. So, now might be a good time to try this face mask if you haven’t already, and whatever else you love from Pacifica before this sale ends.

Ooooooo, I think its about that time to throw on this green machine of a mask, and shed a little light on my skin, it’s been awhile.

Stay beautiful! Xo.
