KleanColor Airy Minerals loose powder eyeshadow swatch/review.

Hello there!. I hope you are all doing well. Everything is good here at home. My  two oldest are doing good in school. Baby sister misses them while they are away and it’s sweet to hear her go on about them!.

So I told you in my previous post that I placed an order on Shopmissa where everything is 1.00. Today I wanted to tell you my thoughts on these loose shadows that I think are a gem!. The loose shadow as a whole is wonderful. You get full on pigmentation with one swatch!. The texture is well stated, “Airy” is spot on. I will be purchasing these eye shadows forever.

The downside is the packaging. I am glad I could get the little sifter that is on the top off because otherwise, you get the shadow all over everything. You tap on the bottom of the pot to get some pigment through the sifter, when you opened it to use that shadow it went everywhere. I just used a toothpick to pry the sifter off. Just BE SURE! you store them upright.Here are some pictures of the container they come in, and you will see what I mean.

These swatches are done on my bare skin, without a base. I always use an eye shadow primer when doing my eyes but, I needed to see if the pigment could hold its own. I will be purchasing the entire range of colors because for 1.00 for 1.4 grams of product, you just have to! I will leave a link to the website below if you are interested in getting these little pots of glorious eye shadows. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me here and I will talk to you soon. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you need to know anything!

Wet N Wild pencil Eyeliner in white Review

Hello and Happy Friday to everyone. I hope you have a safe, fun weekend!.

Recently (within 2 months), Wet N Wild reformulated their pencil eye liners for the eyes. Before, they were not pigmented nor creamy, in my opinion. At 1.99 each at my local Walmart  they are a steal. I adore…..adore! white eyeliner. I use it in my waterline pretty much every time I put eye shadow on because it opens up my eyes. So as you can tell I picked up the white shade because I think a good, pencil, white eye liner is hard to come by.

The pigmentation, smoothness, and longevity is better. It wore in my waterline for about 9 hours, longer if you set it with a matte, white eye shadow. If you have allergy prone eyes I am sure this would not last long because they are not waterproof. I also like using this pencil liner after I apply my eye shadow primer for a nice, white canvas. 

Here are a couple swatches,

As you can see, I have used this liner a ton. I enjoy the new formula!. Way to go Wet N Wild! (as if they even know I exist LOL).

Well I think that about covers it for this review. I hope this has been helpful. Thank you all for visiting my blog, I love you all!.

ELF Cosmetics All Over Color Stick Swatch and Review

Hello my loves!, I hope you are all doing well.

All links will be at the bottom of post 🙂

Not long ago I placed an order on Shop Miss A, a website where they have a vast variety of items to choose from, and every single thing is 1.00, with a flat shipping rate of 3.95 if you live in the U.S. I know that they do ship World-Wide but I do not know what their rates are.

 The color stick shade I ordered is in Persimmon a beautiful pink/gold and i adore it. Here are some pictures for you.

IMG_3720 IMG_3718 IMG_3719

It smells nice and fruity, not overly sweet, its just right in my book. The texture is as smooth as silk, and it wore on my dry(er) skin for about 9 hours. The links I am including are all places where I find and purchase ELF from. I hope you have found this post helpful. Thank you so much for reading and I will see you soon!.

Jordana Easyliner in Seagreen Swatch & Review

Hello my Dear Readers!.

Thank you so much for visiting my Blog, you know I adore you all!. Today I want to tell you about This Eyeliner from Jordana Cosmetics. If you are unfamiliar about this brand let me tell you a couple things. First of all they have a vast variety of products that you can purchase on their online shop, *link(s) at the end of this post they are known in the beauty world for having good products at a great price point that we can all afford. You can find some of their products at your local Walgreen’s but the selection will be limited.I have tried about a handful of what they have to offer and really, have not been completely let down so far. So far, my #1 pick HAS to be their Easy liner (for eyes) as they make a Easy liner for lips that I have not tried…..yet…LOL.

Okay, now let’s get this review going!. I wish I had picked up every, single, shade they have to offer!. I can only speak for the Sea green shade and for that i am sorry. In my local Walgreen’s they had 5 shades a black, brown, purple, white, and lastly, sea green and they retail for 2.99 each!. You do not have to sharpen these, they are twist up and I was pleasantly surprised just because I was not expecting that just based on the price, shame on me!. Here are a couple swatches.

IMG_3767

I have tried 20 times to upload a picture of the tip of the eyeliner but for some odd reason it will not work!. This liner has a standard tip; nothing out of the ordinary so do not worry that it may be hard to use. I find that this is more of a emerald green myself, but nonetheless it lasted on my lower waterline all day long, and for the price that is a steal in my book with a creamy  formula. I hope you all have a great day and come see me again. Don’t forget Jordana’s website is below. ALSO!, I *at the moment* do not work with any cosmetic brands so this is not, NOR, any of the other links that I have provided in my blog posts are not affiliate links. If in the future i do post a link with a brand that has asked me to I will always, always, always tell you!.

Always, Amber Morris

OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol + Astaxanthin + Vitamin E,Serum Review

Hello my lovelies!. Thank you for visiting me and reading my blog post(s). Your support means so very much to me!.

This new item that I added to my skincare routine has made a huge difference in the overall texture of my skin and one great part of this great product is THE PRICE! (24.99) on Amazon * NOT from any ole’ random seller either, from the company it’s self!. First I need to tell you about this company just in case you have never heard about them.
OZ Naturals is a leader in natural skincare. We formulate the most effective anti aging products on the market. Our products are cruelty-free, paraben free, sulfate free, mineral oil free, lanolin free and gluten free. Top seller on amazon.

Utilizing her personal experience of skin issues, that she understands that when your skin is unhealthy it can negatively affect your self-esteem. After try tons of products over the years she was always left with the same skin issues as before. Sometimes even worse than before. Angela knows how disheartening this can be, especially when so many skin care products make huge claims, and simply do not deliver. It’s especially frustrating when the cost of those products are hardly affordable, and you realize once again that you’ve wasted your money.
While it’s true that beautiful skin is also hereditary, healthy skin comes from taking care of the inside and outside of our bodies. However, finding the right products for your skin can be the toughest part of the equation. This is why OZ Naturals was founded, to create healthy, premium skin care products to help those who weren’t naturally born with perfect skin, to obtain more perfect skin.

The only people I would advise caution to are those who have extremely dry skin, have used retinol in the past and had peeling skin, or any other adverse problems. I do have semi-dry skin myself but it’s not over the top sensitive either.

This is the only product I have ever used from this line and I am super happy to have tried this product. If you have tried anything else from OZ Naturals and love or dislike any of them, let me know in the comments, I want to hear from you all!. You can purchase this Serum on the link below.

New York Color Cosmetics (NYC) 3 item Review

Hello my Dear Readers!.

Today I have some exciting (new to me) wonderful drugstore finds. So much so that I have used all three items up completely, and I will never be without these items….unless of course they are very sadly discontinued.
NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara (Blackest Black); is a mascara that blew my socks off!. The curl and the volume lasts all day without flaking down onto my face and I did not have to scrub my eyeballs off to get this off.When I first opened the mascara the mega sized brush made me think it was not going to give me anything but massive, clumpy lashes. The brush took some getting used to and I think the best way to put this on without getting it all over your eyelids is to tilt your head up, while looking down with your eyes.You can get this at Walmart  for 4.47

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer  When I read the claims of this wonderfully priced primer I honestly was thinking…..NO WAY but I just had to see if it holds up to them and they are as follows:

It makes the difference between a good complexion and an incredible complexion. This magic-maker transforms the texture of your skin, minimizing pores and providing a healthy, silky finish while reducing shine. Tired skin is revived and redness fades. Also is designed to even skin tones and reduce lines.Also formulated with vitamin E.

I have used the entire tube and I will get more. I did not get any blackheads, pimples, nothing bad from using it.This did create a smooth base on my dry skin and sank in fast with no oily, sticky, residue at all. It comes in a 1 fluid ounce squeeze tube at Walmart for 3.57

Firefox_Screenshot_2015-09-03T16-28-41.983Z

The last but not least is NYC Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain. Mine is in the shade Rock on Ruby. The claims are as follows:

Lasts up to 16 hours. Precise felt-tip applicator allows you to line and define your lips with precision, then fill in with color. The water-based formula provides a natural flush of color and build able coverage when layered to your desire. Wear alone or layer under your favorite gloss or lip stick.

This stayed put  all day no question about that and I love a good, long-lasting lip product that will not wear off unevenly, or make my lips drier than they were beforehand. I am amazed at how much I adore this. I wore this on its own without any other lip product over it for a day just to see how it wore. It did not get patchy, it wore off evenly but, still left my lips with a flush. Unless you do not like the matte lip look, or, your lips are chapped, you should like it just fine. For those of you that want to grab them even if your lips are on the drier side just wear a close in color regular or glossy lipstick on top.The downside is that they only have 4 shades at Walmart for 4.30Firefox_Screenshot_2015-09-03T16-27-32.015Z

I hope you have enjoyed this post. Thank you dearly for reading and following my blog!.  I will see you soon with another review…. more likely a full face makeup look!. Let me know in the comments what you would like to see next, it would be my pleasure!.

IMG_3578        

                                                                IMG_3571

Claims of Product:

The dream creme for those who love to look polished, elegant and smooth but hate to work at it. A sublime blend of oils suspended in a silky creme that is the essence of simple elegance. Provides texture, separation, satin sheen, moisture, volume control, definition, ease.

Although I do agree that it does tame my frizz, that is ALL it does!. I honestly think that this product is way overpriced. I have semi-thick, straight, frizzy hair. If you really want a product that will take away your frizz you should read my review of this AMAZING drugstore find that i use and truly cannot live without!. https://amberloveseyes12.wordpress.com/2015/07/08/suave-anti-frizz-sleek-and-shine-cream-review/

Thank You so much for reading and I’ll talk to you soon!.

Review on Rimmel London scandal-eyes eye pencils

Hello my dear readers I am so glad you have come to look at my blog it means so very much to me!.

So I picked up these waterproof eyeshadow pencils from Walmart a week ago, though they are not so new I had to see if they lived up to their waterproof claim, and they do!!. I should have guessed it because all the shades were dramatically picked through and I was only able to get the two I am showing you now. They were only 3.99 at Walmart, I know right?. They had a wide variety of shades, shown on a card that hung on the isle, brights, & neutrals, and I will hopefully be able to get them all (if they stock more). Here are some pictures for you.

The shade on the top is Bad Girl Bronze, simply beautiful it has tiny gold flecks throughout and it would really make your blue eyes POP!. I’ll tell ya, once these dry down they ain’t going anywhere until you use your makeup remover and I love that, isn’t that what we all want?.

The shade below is Trespassing Taupe this even works beautifully as a brow filler for my brows, just use a small angled brush and there you have a 3.99 waterproof brow product!.

Thank you all for taking the time to read, I hope you have found this review helpful. Always your makeup lover, Amber Morris.

 

 

 

Melissa Autry Monthly subscription box review

Hello my dear readers, I hope you are all doing great and have some fun on the weekend.

Today I am showing you what I received in Melissa Autry new beauty bag. She is widely known in the You Tube community as *Melmphs knows makeup……. You can purchase this bag at http://www.reelstyle.co/ it is 15.00 for the bag, shipping is 4.95 as it ships from Canada.

You get 4 items in each bag ranging from hair things, eyeshadows, and lipstick from what I gather. So let’s take a look at what I got!.

This baked eyeshadow trio is nice.The lighter gold shade is not as buttery feeling as the other two but, still very pretty.Here are some swatches for you.

The next item were these comfy hair ties.i do like how these are made, they will probably not be as damaging to your hair like a normally made hair tie would. Here is what they look like.

Sea salt spray, something I have tried from several other brands and I love how they tend to make my hair look. I have not been able to use this, I will get back to you!.
And finally the hydrating lip balm. At first I just assumed that this was just a normal lip balm, as it says but when I opened it I was shocked to see that it was a bright red shade!. Oh my this is super creamy and has a sweet smell. Here is what she looks like.
Now here is my overall opinion. When you get your bag you are not given any type of card with the individual prices of the items which is because I amuse you cannot order these items individually on their website which is a bummer for me.
I am happy to support Melissa as she is someone I have been watching on You Tube for several years and I feel that she is a genuine woman with good values. I hope you have found this enjoyable to read.
Honestly always your makeup lover, Amber Morris.
