Product Review: Snoe Rouge Deluxe Complete Lip Care in X7 Just Peachy

Friday, December 14, 2012

     After raving about MAC Girl About Town, here's another lipstick that will make your day bright. Yes, this shade brings good vibes to me whenever I'm wearing it. I get lots of compliment whenever I'm sporting this shade from Snoe Beauty. I love that Snoe delved deeper in producing makeups that doesn't contain synthetic materials. They're taking the local skin care and cosmetic industry by storm and most of the beauty bloggers that I know loves a product or two from Snoe.

     Without further ado, I will now share my thoughts on Snoe Rouge Deluxe Complete Lip Care in X7 Just Peachy. This came from the loot that was given to me during the Snoe Beauty Bloggers Event. I chose Just Peachy because I wanted to try a peach based lipstick and see if I can pull it off. Guess what? First impression really do last! So read more to find out ^_^
     Snoe's Rouge Deluxe is an oil-infused rich and creamy lip color in the season's hottest hues. It will hydrate, nourish, and revitalize lips. While delivering long-lasting color, this product works to smoothen and soften the lips, making your pout extra kissable. Edited to only the most fashionable shades, it's impossible to pick just one.

Product Review: Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Hibiscus

Sunday, July 29, 2012

     Hi lovelies! How's your day? It's raining cats and dogs outside so to those who are staying outside their houses today don't forget to bring your rain gadgets (umbrella, rain boots, rain coat, scarfs, etc) to keep you dry and warm. This cozy weather is perfect for movie marathon while sipping a hot cup of your favorite drink. As for me, the stay-at-home mom that's always at home obviously and bumming around with my son wants to go out and spend some time at the mall. I'm craving for milk tea and yogurt :D I guess will have to get my milk tea fix at 7-11 . 
     Before going outside, I just wanna share this review on Covergirl's Gloss Balm from the NatureLuxe collection.The line features a new generation of makeup luxury that are lightweight and do not contain a ton of synthetic ingredients. This lip gloss was included from the Everyday Essentials Loot  that I won from The Beauty Junkee's 3rd Grand Anniversary Giveaway. I actually have two bullets of this gloss and I gave the other one to my sister. The shade is 215 Hibiscus and I think flatters most skin color. 
Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Hibiscus
Natureluxe Gloss Balm exchanges select heavier emollients for natural mango, shea and other butters which are lighter, more luxurious feeling alternatives.
 The Gloss Balm is part of CoverGirl Natureluxe, a luxury makeup line that exchanges select heavier synthetics for carefully-chosen natural ingredients, while delivering a polished makeup look and a lightweight feel.
Natureluxe Gloss Balm contains a lightweight blend of mango, shea and other natural butters, used in place of heavier feeling emollients. Mango and shea butters are lighter and more luxurious-feeling than heavier, synthetic emollients. The formulation provides an occlusive barrier that helps protect lips against drying elements like the sun and wind.

What I like:
  • The product contains mango, shea and natural butters so I guess there's a lesser synthetic emollient in the ingredients.
  • Gives moisture to the lips.
  • Has a nice pop of color and glossy finish.
  • The container is sleek.
  • It has SPF 15 so you get a good amount of sun protection for your lips.
  • Has manufacturing and expiry date stamped on the container.
  • Smells good :D
  • Has wide selection of colors.
What I don't like:
  • Wears off easily.
  • Quite pricey for a lip gloss. 
Will I repurchase? Maybe. It's a nice gift for college students or girls who likes subtle color on their lips. This is also a great gift for office girls who likes lip gloss with a hint of color.

     I give this a 3.75/5 rating. It's a nice lip gloss with a hint of color that you can use everyday. I just wish it contains more amount of product. Since I'm a cheapskate and will only spend my money for budget-friendly cosmetics, I have to pass this one. I'll recommend this to a friend and suggest this as a great gift for those who loves prettifying their lips for casual look.

     What brand of lip gloss do you own? Thanks for sharing guys! Stay safe and have a blessed Sunday everyone :D

Good Times!~

Product Review: Careline Lip Gloss in 111

Friday, June 22, 2012

     Bright and Bold colors are IN this season. Neons are seen in every fashionista sporting them from accessories to their wardrobes. Who can't resists them? These colors are fun and brings happiness to a gloomy sky and rainy day! If fashion afficionados are having fun mix and matching their outfits with neons, then makeup lovers can also make their own statement. 

     When I think of bright and bold colors in makeup, the first thing that pops in my mind is lipstick. I really want to try a bright and bold color lippie but I'm afraid that it would look off on me. Not everyone looks good with a bright pink or a sultry red lippie. As I searched online, I stumbled upon this local brand called Careline. They offer a wide range of cosmetics and the prices are budget friendly. They have wide selection for lipsticks and lip glosses. So when I visited the store that carries Careline cosmetics, I told myself that I'm going home with one lip gloss in my bag. The SA showed me eye-catching colors of lip glosses. I don't know which color to choose. Since I'm looking for something orange-y, I picked 111.

What I like:
  • It's dirt cheap at 60Php!
  • The color pay off is excellent, very pigmented.
  • The scent is sweet and not overpowering, it's like watermelon.
  • Wide selection of colors.
  • Doesn't dry my lips.
  • Not gooey and sticky.
  • The application is smooth and easy with the doe foot applicator.
  • Easily available.
  • Enriched with vitamin E.
What I don't like:
  • The label can easily be rub off.
  • A bit difficult to remove, I sometimes use my lip and eye makeup remover.
  • No manufacturing and expiration date.
Will I repurchase? Yes! I will try a red and nude shade from the selection.

     I give this a 4/5 rating. I love how it brightens my face and doesn't dry my lips. But there were times this color looks off on me. As for the price, this is really affordable and if I have the opportunity to buy other colors, I will purchase 3 more. 

     Would you dare wear bold and bright color lipstick and lip gloss?Have a great day ahead!

Good Times!~

Product Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa

Monday, February 13, 2012

     My camera is still not working! Pardon me with some blurry photos but I really, really want to make a review on this lip product. All photos were taken from my phone and when I'm doing watermarks on them, I know it doesn't give justice to its real color. My other problem in trying a bright  lippie is that it turns out darker than the true color because I have tad pigmented lips. 

     Some said this is a dupe for the infamous MAC Girl About Town lipstick and we all know that MAC lipsticks are expensive. I don't own GAT lipstick so I can't compare it but I'm impress with it and for being a cheapskate, I'm totally sold!

     This lip cream is one of my longest lemming and I'm glad that I bought it. A lot of girls have been raving them and some of them can't resist to buy all the colors, why? 
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing. Available in 11 lip colors.

size: 0.23 oz., 6.5grams

price: 330 php (Around $7.7+)

place bought: online re-seller like multiply (digital traincase) or ebay

instruction for use: apply as a lipstick let it dry for minutes for that matte look

ingredients: Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Dimethicone, Beeswax, Glyceryl Behenate / Eicosadioate, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone / Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Talc, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Silica, Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isohexadecane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Parfum. May Contain: CI77019 (Mica) / CI77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI15850 (D&C Red 6 Na. Salt), CI15850 (D&C Red 7 Ca Lake), CI15985:1 (FD&C Yellow 6 Al Lake), CI19140:1 (FD&C Yellow 5 Al Lake), CI45410 (D&C Red 28 Al Lake), CI77491 (Iron Oxide Red), CI77492 (Iron Oxide Yellow), CI77499 (Iron Oxide Black), CI77742 (Manganese Violet), CI77891 (Titanium Dioxide).

What I like:
  • The packaging is nice, I like the top part of the tube that is rubbery finish and looks expensive.
  • Really pigmented.
  • The doe foot applicator makes applying easy.
  • Can be used as a lip stain or full matte look without using lip liner.
  • The texture is creamy, velvety and it's like whipped cream on my lips but goes dry after minutes of application.
  • The scent- sweet but not overpowering.
  • Doesn't dry my lips.
  • Once dry it's transfer and water resistant.
  • Last 6 hours on my lips.
  • Easy to remove.
  • There's a batch and manufacturing date printed on it.
  • Inexpensive.
What I don't like: 
  • Since this turns out matte after a few minutes, it emphasized fine lines on my lips.
  • Comes off after eating or sipping my drink and fades unevenly.
  • It left my lips with a lip liner like line when I ate greasy food.
Will I repurchase? Yes! I want to try other colors like Sao Paulo, Amsterdam and Milan

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. I really love this to bits! Brightens my dull face and gives an oomph factor to my lips. Be sure to moisturize your lips prior to application to prevent dryness. I always use my EOS or Carmex lip balm underneath it. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is love!

     Have you tried matte lippies before?Thanks for visiting, Happy Monday everyone :)

Good Times!~
