Shiseido- The Makeup Facial Cotton

Looking for new cotton facial squares? Look no further! Shiseido’s facial cotton is AMAZING! They are super soft and gentle while being very durable. The cotton also doesn’t tend to fall apart while you are removing makeup.

They may seem a bit pricey (approx 9.50) for a pack but they are totally worth it. The pack lasts a good amount of time and you can even split the wipe in half for removing eye makeup and such.

Next time you are at your local department store or Sephora, check them out! You won’t be sorry!

 

Amazing eyelash curler!

It’s been a while since I have posted anything, so I figured I’d start with something simple!

I’ve always thought that curling your lashes always was a important touch to finish a look. Finding a good eyelash curler can be a chore. I used to use the Shu Uemura curler until they stopped selling it in the USA.  Some curlers pinch your lids, some don’t curl all of your lashes and some of them just suck! After lots of trial and error, I came across the Shiseido eyelash curler.

This thing is wonderful! The curler grasps all of your lashes from root to tip creating a full lash. The curler fits my almond-shaped eyes perfectly. I have never experienced any pinching, pulling, or tugging from this curler (I am always cautious when using an eyelash curler).  The price point for this eyelash curler is around 19 bucks and totally worth it.

If you are in the market for a new eyelash curler, I HIGHLY recommend this one.

My Favorite Hair Tools

Finding the right hair tools can be expensive and difficult! I’m not an expert at hair so I like products that will do its job without requiring too much expertise! Below, I will list the tools I use the most thus far.

Flat iron: T3 single pass flat iron. This flat iron is amazing. It makes my hair smooth and shiny. It takes seconds to heat up and straightens my hair in half the time ( I have thick hair that goes below my waist). Amazing product.

T3 Featherweight Dryer: Once again, amazing product. Dries my hair in half the time. Also, my hair is smoother when I use this dryer.

T3 SinglePass Whirl curling wand: Let me be very honest and say that I suck at curling hair! This wand allows me to get beachy waves without putting in too much effort. This wand heats up quickly and does not require that you leave your hair wrapped around the wand for too long. Make sure you use the glove provided and hold your hair tight around the wand so it doesn’t slide off!

Enzo Milano Curling Iron (25mm Round): This is my first conical curling wand. I’ve had it for over 6 years and it still works great! I use it for loose beachy waves! Def. an oldie but a goodie.

 

I hope this helps! Enjoy!

Quick Tip: Rollerball Perfumes

If you are anything like me, you love perfumes and love to have a variety of them.

Try rollerball perfumes. They are cheaper,great for travel and/or your makeup bag, and allow you to have multiple perfumes on rotation. The only negative about rollerball perfumes is not all perfumes comes in a rollerball, although most do. Hope this helps!

Review: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Finding a good concealer can be difficult. I have to admit, I used to hate wearing concealer. I thought it looked weird or never blended in with the rest of my makeup until…….. I found Nars Radiant creamy concealer!

In order to make this review easy to follow, I’ll list the pros and cons of this product and my overall conclusion and recommendation.

Pros:

Extremely creamy and buttery smooth.

Blends with the rest of your makeup like a dream.

Makes a great undereye and face concealer depending on the undertone of the color you choose.

Packaging is sleek, easy to travel with and/or to put in your makeup bag.

If used underneath the eyes, this product doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles (at least it doesn’t happen to me).

Covers very well and is buildable.

Looks natural but totally packs a punch. The concealer makes you look bright-eyed and awake.

Blends well using your fingers and/or makeup brush.

Stays in place all day.

Cons:

The color range is good but some people MIGHT have to mix colors to get their perfect shade. I do this to get the perfect concealer shade for my face.

Some people may not like the price. I purchased my concealer at Sephora and paid $28. I think the product is totally worth it!

Overall, I recommend this product 110%. I think it’s totally worth trying.

Quick Tip: Clean Cell Phone

Can you imagine all the places your phone has been? Counters, floors, etc.  To avoid transferring bacteria/germs/dirt from your phone to your face, hands, etc, wipe your phone down!

I use a wet wipe and wipe the screen and case of the phone. I don’t and wouldnt suggest using anything too liquidy, you don’t want to ruin your phone. Try it out, you may even notice less breakouts!
