Holika Holika: Love Who You Are Palette Review + Swatches

It’s been a long while since I’ve done a makeup product review on my blog so here it is! This is the Holika Holika Limited Edition: Love Who You Are Eyeshadow Palette. Jolse kindly gifted me this a while back to review for you all. Because of COVID, I have not been wearing much or any makeup nor have I’ve been inspired to do any eyeshadow looks. I finally gave this palette a shot and used it during the holidays and this week so I’m ready to share with you how I feel about it.

My Thoughts:

I use to not gravitate towards K-Beauty eyeshadows because I found them too sheer for my liking but I’ve grown to really enjoy them for what they are, how natural and buildable they can be. I also find K-Beauty shimmer shadows waaaay better than western eyeshadows as they come in a nice variety of fine to bigger shimmers/glitters. This palette most certainly impressed me for it’s performance alone and with primer. It can pretty much last all day without primer and looks roughly the same from application time; very minimal creasing to no creasing without primer. There’s a good variety of transition shades that are matte and shimmers to play around with. Majority of the shimmer shades have that gorgeous multi-dimensional appearance to them. The camera does not go any justice for this palette and you need to see them in person to believe it for yourself. They’re sparkly but not in an obnoxious way and can be used as an everyday palette!

  • Texture: 5/5 – Formula is dense and almost creamy to the touch, you can use brushes or your fingers. I personally find finger application best for shimmer shades as you can build it up and it has better even application when doing so.
  • Price: 4/5 – It’s currently listed $24.79 USD | $31.63 USD on Jolse, which is somewhat expensive for an eyeshadow palette but the pans are MUCH better than most eyeshadow palettes around this price so you are getting your money’s worth when purchasing this. There’s also 13.5g of product in it so it will last you a while even if you use it as an “everyday palette”. I would prefer this over the Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette that everybody loves – I personally have grown out from loving their palettes and find their formula DRY.. it’s like a dry pigment even and I prefer more creamy, dense formulas such as this palette.
  • Performance: 4/5 – I’m very impressed with the longevity of this palette as it survived through an 8 hour shift and I could skip primer if I wanted to with this one.
  • Packaging: 5/5 – Super cute, iconic. Love the colours and it most certainly grabbed my attention.
  • Overall: 4.5/5 – I’m pretty happy with this palette! I have no complaints about it and I see myself using it a lot during this coming fall because look at these colours! They’re gorgeous and so versatile for all year round.

Mini BEAUTY Holiday Gift Guide

Holidays are upon us, decorations are either being put up or already up, people are likely blasting the holiday music playlists on their Spotify. This Christmas will be a different one from previous years as we are social distancing and only allowed to see family members within the household, Christmas parties won’t be as crowded as they usually are but I’m sure some of us are still buying gifts for our loved ones either mailing it or dropping it off to them. I’m sure most of us already know how challenging it can be shopping for some of our friends or family members. I wanted to do a cute little beauty gift guide for your family and friends. This is a budget-friendly one so it most certainly won’t break the bank.

YARDLEY Fragrances

These come in a beautiful range of scents to choose from. I know fragrance preferences can very subjective but I can assure you – there is a good range for you to select from. I only have 3 here to share with you today but YARDLEY does offer body sprays and fragrance mists. These beautiful perfumes are Eau De Toilette, Eau De Toilette means that the fragrance inside will be much more concentrated than your traditional fragrance mist, body mist and Eau De Parfum.

Here are the descriptions for each Fragrance:

All of these fragrances contain 90% naturally derived ingredients and a vegetable derived alcohol base. Cruelty Free and suitable for vegans.

Lavender

A beautifully fresh, light, elegant fragrance with top notes of bergamot and clary sage with a heart of calming English Lavender subtly combining notes of eucalyptus, geranium, jasmine, chamomile and violet, enhanced with deeper, warm base noes of wood, vanilla and patchouli.

ENGLISH ROSE

A refreshing, light floral fragrance with sparkling citrus and rose top notes and a heart subtly combining rose bud, magnolia, violet and cassis with warm woody notes, whilst patchouli and musks add velvety tones to the base.

LILY OF THE VALLEY

A light, feminine white floral fragrance with fruit pear accords in the top note and a beautiful floral bouquet heart that blends lily of the valley and freesia, enhanced with a pretty, musky base.

These are available on their official website are currently on sale  £9.99 | $ 17 CAD, which is really affordable because you get 125ml of product for a really affordable price. Eau De Toilette fragrances are usually more expensive as the concentration is more potent and has a powerful longevity. Fragrances are often very expensive and marked up but I found these reasonably priced. You also can find their products at Shoppers Drug Mart.
You can find this beautiful set at Well.ca | Shoppers Drug Mart | London Drugs | Their Official Website.

Makeup tools, brushes and sponges will never go out of style or trend because a lot of us use these to apply on our makeup. These Real Technique Sparkle-On-The-Go brushes and sponge set is perfect for not only travelling but they don’t accumulate too much space and the brush handles can stand on their own. Growing up, I’ve used Real Technique sponges and I can confidently say that they’re just as good as beauty blenders. Real Technique sponges have soft and beautiful synthetic bristles. I really like the design for these and how compact they are. I think they would make an excellent gift for any makeup lover – beginner or intermediate, these will be loved.

That’s it for now, friends. Stay tuned until next time.

Bath time, self care time!

Special thanks to Brill Communications for sending out such an adorable little package. The package consists of 2 Me Bath bath bombs, a cute blue IKEA towel and a mermaid mask. I know how stressful it can be living life in quarantine but hang in there, friends. Remember to wear a mask, social distance and be kind. 🙂

Work has been hectic as per usual so I like to indulge and treat myself to a nice warm bath from time to time. I can never have too many bath bombs because I go through them quite frequently during the colder seasons. These bath bombs from Me Bath come in a nice range of colours and scents to choose from. They are relatively a new brand so expect to see more variety added in the future. These retail for $4.99 each and are available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

The two bath bombs I received were:

Mystic Mermaid – which has a fantastic aquatic scent and adds a gorgeous aqua-blue hue to your bath water. It’s very fitting to the theme and makes the whole bath experience more fun and exciting.

Unicorn Magic has a delicious sweet, fruity scent and it gives out a nice, bright neon pink hue to your bath water.

Bath time paired with a nice beverage of your choice, a book or even streaming your favourite shows always helps you unwind and puts everything else on pause. It’s a nice little treat you can give yourself. Bath bombs can be pretty expensive and range between 6 to 10 dollars so it’s nice to see Me Bath make the effort to create an affordable option.

With bath time, you can customize and amp up the experience by adding a bubbles or even some bath salts, the options are quite endless! Be sure to not have your bath water scorching hot because you’re going to irritate and dry out your skin. And try not to stay in for too long because your fingers and toes may prune up. I think disclaimers like these can be helpful since I almost never hear anyone mention these sorts of things. It’s good to take precautions and remember to enjoy your self care time!

Luscious Hair with Luseta Hair

Earlier of this year, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to become one of Luseta’s brand ambassadors and I was thrilled! I kept seeing their products all over my feed and explore page so it was very exciting to work with a popular and well known hair brand.

All Luseta products are sulfate, phosphate and carbon-free. ♡

Growing up, my hair was very thick and strong but as I aged, I noticed my hair has become a lot more weak, thinner even. It’s likely because of aging and diet. My diet isn’t the best so I need to work on that. You’d be surprised how much diet plays a role in your everyday life and overall appearance aside from just your overall physique. Skin and hair are affected by poor eating habits.

The first set of products I tried from Luseta was their Hemp Oil complex line. I no longer have the shampoo and conditioner because I used them but I highly reccomend this line to those who have thin hair and split ends. This line did a superb job making my hair less tangled and also made it feel a lot stronger. My boyfriend suffers from alopecia in the front of his head and he even found this line really gentle on scalp while leaving it refreshed and soft. He’s very picky with hair care so that compliment says a lot.

The Hemp Oil complex line is formulated with 3 beautiful key ingredients that helps stimulate, soothe and moisturize your scalp.

• HEMP OIL is excellent for most skin types as it is non-comdegenic (won’t clog your pores) and it helps balance out oily skin/scalps by hydrating and maintaining skin’s oil production.

• PEPPERMINT is commonly used in a lot of hair products that claims to stimulate hair growth/scalp care and etc. It also known to have fantastic antiseptic and antibacterial qualities. Please be aware that you will feel a slight tingling, cooling sensation when using products with this ingredient.

• GREEN TEA is an overall fantastic ingredient used for many purposes – anti aging and weightloss. For hair care in particular, this is great for combating against dry scalp and dandruff.

Alright onto the products that I do still have and have also been enjoying. They recently replenished my Luseta supply with their Collagen and Biotin line. This line is just so luxurious because they choose to use two of the most popular ingredients you see in supplements in our hair care.

HEMP OIL COMPLEX STRENGTHENING DUO

WHERE TO BUY – click on the links below and be redirected 🙂

Their biotin and collagen line consists of a wonderful blend of powerful ingredients from Vitamin b7 biotin, hydrolyzed collagen and argan oil; All these ingredients are perfect for restoring necessary nutrients into every strand while plumping collagen adds dimension and volume into the hair for a thicker, fuller and healthier appearance.

BIOTIN is commonly found in supplements to help with hair growth and fight against hair thinning.

Collagen has amazing benefits for the skin, hair and body. For hair, it helps build and strengthen hair proteins. It also may prevent against follicle damage and greys.

* in my opinion, greys can be caused by multiple factors such as stress, hereditary so it’s almost difficult for me to believe that entirely but I wanted to add my thoughts on this.

I found this specific set did an incredibly job moisturizing my scalp and hair. Often times a lot of shampoo products do dry out my hair and causing a lot of flyaways and I found this shampoo really great for moisturizing, softening and leaving my hair feeling so clean. Their conditioner pairs well with this shampoo as it leaves my hair feeling silky soft and lightweight while being nourishing.

BIOTIN & COLLAGEN SHAMPOO DUO

Overall, I’m impressed with Luseta hair care products, they honestly are salon grade quality and top of the line products. I don’t think I’ll purchase any of hair care product because these work for me. I actually went ahead and purchased their apple cider clarifying conditioner to try out and I’m excited to see how that goes. 🙂 I highly recommend you guys to try out their products, you will not disappointed!

FINESSE HYDRATION + SOFTNESS SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER

Haircare is very crucial and can be difficult to maintain. I use to neglect my hair when I was younger and it really caught up to me because now my hair is dry and damaged. I would bleach and dye my hair all sorts of colours because I wanted to be bold and expressive with my look but it really took a toll on my hair. Regardless if it was done at the salon or box hair dye, it did a lot of damage. Not to mention, I wasn’t on top with getting my regular haircuts to allow my hair to grow evenly and be more healthy. Nowadays, I’m more cautious and I ensure I take very good care of hair. I try to wash my hair every other day or wait longer so I don’t overwash or dry out my scalp, I also have been using a lot of hair oils (Moroccan, Argan, Coconut and Camellia oil).

I wanted to give out a special thanks to Carolina for sending over these amazing goodies for me to try and share with you all! She sent over Finesse’s new and revamped hydration & softness shampoo & conditioner duo and also some adorable hair accessories from Scunci.

I personally go through Conditioner quite fast so it’s also nice to get a replenishment and something new to try out. I’ve seen Finesse before but I’ve actually never tried anything from their brand before so this is all quite exciting to me.

Product Claims

  • These two products are enriched with Camellia oil, which is a really nourishing and hydrating oil that can retain moisture within the hair strands and provide hydration. It also is very fast absorbing so it won’t weigh down your hair!
  • These two products synergize and work together to form a protective barrier against damaging pollutants. I’m sure most days, if not every day, we are exposed to UV rays and environmental pollutants that can cause physical harm and damage to the hair – to prevent these from occurring and doing any further damage, we find products to protect it.
  • Available at your local grocery stores and mass retailers across Canada for UNDER $4. Now that my friends is a steal and quite worth trying because you can’t go wrong with trying out affordable products.

Last but not least, Carolina also included some adorable little hair accessories by the Brand called Scunci. I love hair scrunchies and I pretty much wear one or two around my wrist daily because you just never know when you need to tie up your hair. I don’t like eating with hair near my face so I tie it up and these come in handy. I find the band not too stiff and it stretches really nicely so it won’t tug your hair. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns so there’s pretty much something for everyone.

I hope you guys check these out because they’re honestly such a steal! They’re currently available on Walmart.ca for ONLY $ 1.78. I’ve never seen shampoos or conditioners for that cheap, so definitely try it out!

Pamper Yourself with Dr. Teal’s Vitamin C Line

After a long day of work, I’m sure most of us want to sit back, relax, and unwind. There’s really no better way to unwind than having a nice bubble bath. Growing up, baths were never a thing for me because my parents thought it was a waste of water. Only recently I got into them and let me tell you, it is a luxury! Not only it feels great and relaxing, but it’s also something you can enjoy from time to time. This couldn’t have come a better time because I recently received some bath goodies in the mail to share with you all!

If you haven’t heard of Dr. Teal’s before, they are an affordable bath care company and you can actually find many of their products in your local drugstore. Bath products can be pretty expensive and they can add up. I mean, look at Lush for instance! Sure, their packaging and products look appealing but the price tag for each item? No thanks! I’m all about looking for budget-friendly options.

I received their Vitamin C Foaming Bath and also the Vitamin C Bath Salts. Their Vitamin C line offers complete skincare and muscle pain relief. They have a wonderful blend of ingredients that can nourish, hydrate, and brighten the skin. The key ingredients are shea butter, aloe vera, Vitamin E, and also Vitamin C.

What are bath salts, what are they used for and how do you use them?

Epsom Salts are used to treating against minor aches and pain, they always can soothe tired muscles and reduce swelling. Deposit about 1 cup of Epsom salt in warm water and allow it set before going it when the bathwater is “ready”, it should feel silky to the touch.

Full Ingredient List:

DSC_5224

Bath Salts: Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt) Fragrance (Parfum), Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).

Foaming Bath: Water (Aqua, Eau), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt), Fragrance (Parfum), Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, PEG-4 Rapeseedamide, Disodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone.

Add some foaming bath into your bath to make the experience more fun because who doesn’t love bubblesI hope you guys give their products a try and if you’re not a fan of citrus or orange scents, they do offer other scents in their range like lavender, green tea, eucalyptus and etc.

That’s it for now, folks. Tune in to the next blog post. Until then, take care and stay safe during these uncertain times.

Dry Skin? No worries, I found the perfect trio

As many of you may already know, it’s currently winter transitioning to spring in Canada but it’s still extremely dry outside – My skin needs all the help it can get. I wanted to share 3 products I use back to back to ensure I never ever have to come across dry, reptile-like skin. The Bioderma shower oil and also the atoderm creme. I’ve been using Bioderma sensibio for many, many years but I have never ventured out to try out their other products until recently. They sent over these two for me to try out and let me tell you, I’ve already finished both the shower oil and atoderm creme.

s-l300

How to use: Shower Oil

So the concept of this is quite unique since I’ve never used any product like this before. You use this in the shower, apply it onto the skin and massage.  It dispenses out like a silky, rich body oil but lathers up a little bit and becomes into a soft foam. The moment it comes into direct contact with the wet skin, it forms a strong protective barrier for the skin and you can visibly see and feel it when using it. I rinse the remaining product off my body and dry my body for the next step.

Once my body is dry, I apply a thick layer of the atoderm creme all over my body and ensure I massage the cream thoroughly as I do not want any white residue behind. If you own these two products, repeat these steps every single day after your shower and you will notice a significant difference in your overall skin feel. I am very guilty for taking scorching hot showers and drying the crap out of my skin and I use to be very guilty for neglecting my body and not applying creams after my showers. I’ve only started making the changes roughly 2 years ago and it has changed my life forever. No more dry skin days and also no more scaley, reptile-like skin because that was just gross.

3570800I follow up with the atoderm creme and it’s just the divine. It’s a thick, whipped consistency that glides beautifully on the skin and moisturizes it while protecting the barrier. I never have to deal with reptile skin whenever I use these two together because they synergize so well together. The two main nourishing ingredients they use for this is vaseline and glycerin. This softens the skin while providing long-lasting moisture.

 

During uncertain times, I’m sure many of us are taking the extra precautions as needed to fight against this virus and protecting ourselves so I’m guessing some of you are on consciously washing your hands more frequently. I definitely am and not ashamed of it. However, I found that my hands got a lot more drier from doing so I’ve started to use the atoderm hand creme and let me tell you, folks, this stuff means business. It reminds me of the atoderm body cream except it’s a lot thicker and really protects the hands from any moisture loss. This little guy comes in 50ml but you need half a pea size for both hands and it should last you a while before you need replenishment. 72236

I’m so impressed by Bioderma’s products and I’ve been using their products for years. They’ve always surpassed my expectations and I will continue to purchase from them. If you’re in Canada, you can find their products at Shoppers Drug Mart.

 

 

 

Life Update: Quarantine Beauty Routine

Hi all, I know it’s been a long time coming since I’ve last been on here but I’m here now! It’s been a crazy little bit for me. So before I start sharing my routine, I wanted to give you guys an update and explanation where I’ve been. I recently moved out to my own home and for the past little bit, I’ve been just decorating my new home along with stocking up/taking the precautious measures against COVID-19. I’m currently working from home but will be returning back to work next week (varying in what our Prime Minister says, later on, this week.) I hope you all are doing well and practicing social distancing. As we will need to for the next couple of months to suppress and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Many people were affected during this time of crisis, lots have lost their jobs, family members affected by the spread and etc, I just want you all to know, I’m sending you all love & positive vibes. I want us all to practice kindness and be considerate of our surroundings.

Now for many of us, we are likely working from home/stay at home because schools are closed. Some may be enjoying this time off, some may be really bored but regardless, I hope you’re all staying at home and avoiding going anywhere you don’t need to be. I’m not going to lie since I was away from the office, it kind of threw me off from my existing day by day schedule and forced me to create a new one. I came from having a very well structured week to not having any structure at all but I’ve been gradually implementing good little things into my life so I can live a better life such as working out, eating less junk and focusing/prioritizing house chores.

Here are 10 things I implemented in my life that have made this quarantine period a lot more chill and nice for me.

  1. When stocking up for groceries, I like to buy 2 weeks of groceries in advance so that I’m not making a bunch of trips back and forth for small little things.
  2. Meal plan, before even thinking about going to the grocery store, has an idea of what you want to eat for the week and write down your grocery list. Don’t shop blindly and take your time. Act like you have a limited time at the grocery store and go in and get your supplies and out as soon as possible. We are in a pandemic here, friends – now is NOT the time to dilly dag and take our sweet time. The less time you spend at any public place, you will minimize your exposure to COVID-19.
  3. Sanitize everything and especially every time you return back from going out, sanitize your keys, wallet, credit cards and if you drive, your stirring wheel.
  4. WASH YOUR HANDS, I feel like I’m in kindergarten again whenever I say this. I’ve been practicing good hygiene since I was very young because I grew up around germaphobes such as my mom. I find myself unconciously and obsessively washing my hands everything I handle so I need to apply hand cream. The hand cream that is heavy duty and that works best for my dry hands is the bioderma atoderm ultra repair hand cream. This hand cream works like no other and no, I was not sponsored to share this and I genuinely enjoy their products and I will continuously support them.
  5. I love junk food and snacking but there comes to a time where things need to change. I did myself a favour and I stopped walking down in the snack aisle and I bought foods that would fill me up. If I felt snacky, I had vegetables I could grill, fry or bake myself. I’ve been avoiding anything frozen, packed because it’s not good for you and all that sodium is bound to affect your health whether now or later on in life. So I make my own comfort food and know exactly what I put in it. Take, or instance, I made myself some delicious Chiptole Lime Homefries and I also made a Pizza flavoured Homefries. They were way better than any packaged food I had.
  6. I never hated working out, I was either too lazy to do it or I was not in the right environment. Gyms are closed, anything public is closed so enough is enough – I made myself a mini-workout studio at my own home. There is a whack load of workout routines you can do at home without needing weights so no excuses! Just make sure you don’t go too hard or eat/drank before your workout because you could throw up and hurt yourself and you don’t want that. Learn from my mistakes.
  7. I stopped reading about COVID-19 articles and minimized the number of youtube videos I watched regarding this topic. Yes, we need to be aware of what’s going on the world but if it takes a toll in your overall mental space and you’re panicking about something you have limited/no control over, then don’t put yourself through that. Instead, practice social distancing, good hygiene and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Be kind to yourself and those that are around you. We all have family and loved ones we want to protect.
  8. EDUCATE YOURSELF BEFORE FEAR MONGERING + SPREADING HATE. There’s a lot of racism, hate crimes and ignorant individuals out there that have very limited education on COVID-19 and what it is. Because it’s a novel virus, medical professionals are working closely to formulate a super vaccine to fight this virus and stop it from spreading in the future. In addition, because this is a novel virus, many people are panicking and scared so they act out in hate. I just want to be very, very clear that this virus is not caused by Chinese/China. It surprises me to hear this behaviour and what people have said so far. If we dive in history a little bit, there were so many plagues, viruses long before this. This is nature, people. Things like this happen. The Black Plague, Spanish Flu, HIV, Ebola, SARS were WAY BIGGER issues that were rarely even spoken about today and the fact there are people opening their mouths and rambling about how a certain race or country originated this virus is sickening. I don’t tolerate garbage behaviour and those who are uneducated and speak poorly of any race, I don’t spare a minute of my time and neither should you!
  9. Find new hobbies and things to keep yourself occupied like painting, dancing, singing, anything you like! Step out from your comfort zone. It’s not like every day (before) where you can do these things in the comfort of your own home so do it now! Life is too short and we should keep ourselves occupied and uplifted.
  10. Practising generosity is crucial during a time like this. If you or you know someone who has a surplus supply of products and supplies, please offer it to anyone who in need of these sorts of things. I have elderly neighbours who go grocery shopping once a week and I’ve offered to help them, not only because they’re elderly and at a huge risk but because things get harder when you’re older. You don’t process things as fast, vision and hearing can be limited – so I get it, I really do. I personally find offering help to others gives me such a warming and comforting feeling.

I hope this helped you all and sending you all love and good vibes during this time! We can get past this, just be sure to practice social distancing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

[REVIEW] MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION TONE UP TONER

Missha is one of the very few brands that I continue to use. When I was 16, I purchased myself my very first Korean beauty product and it was the Missha Vita BB cream. I really liked how it filled in my pores and made everything so smooth. I do recall using a lot of their foam cleansers a lot when I was younger and I really enjoyed them. Jolse kindly sent this product over to me back in November and I’ve been using it for quite a while now.

  • Clean & Bright Skin

  • Protects Skin from Environmental Factors
    Protects the skin from harmful environmental factors that cause skin to lose its natural glow

How to use:

After thoroughly cleansing your face, apply toner with a cotton pad or on hands and apply it evenly throughout the face. You can even make a toner mask out of this product if you want.

  • Texture: 3/5 –The texture surprised me the most because I was expecting almost a watery consistency but instead it was quite thick. It really reminds me of the Whamisa Organic Flowers Rich Toner’s consistency. I wasn’t a big fan of it as I was hoping for something lighter.
  • Scent: 2/5 –Sensitive skin friends, stir far away from this product. I was shocked when I smelled this. It has quite a strong floral, clean scent to it and it lingers. Unlike some products scents that do eventually go away, this kind of just stays.
  • Price: 4/5 – Missha products are affordable so the price wasn’t an issue.
  • Performance: 1/5 –Did absolutely nothing for me. No brightening, wasn’t really moisturizing either and kind of just sat on my skin.
  • Packaging: 5/5 – Gorgeous packaging! The bottle is glass and has a beautiful gradient design. It doesn’t spill the product everywhere and is really well made.
  • Overall: 2/5 – I must say I am beyond disappointed in this and I was expecting more from Missha. I’m starting to believe they are quite comparable to The Saem. The Saem makes great makeup product products but when it comes to skincare, it’s like they poured a bottle of perfume in their products. I would not recommend this to anyone who has sensitive skin. Maybe those who have dry skin would enjoy this as this does have a thicker consistency to it but I personally didn’t see any amazing results from using it on my dehydrated, combination skin.
