[WISHLIST]: Chapter One – Sephora Edition

Hey beauties, it’s funny how these past few posts were quite negative.. Anti Haul, Product Flops.. I came on here to share things I genuinely would like to try out and want as a gift or I will purchase it for myself later on in life.

FAB – Coconut Water Cream
This is currently on sale at Sephora for 21 Canadian Dollars. I was quite intrigued by this product when I first came across it. I’m actually quite surprised how affordable it is now. I may consider getting it but I’m also quite unsure at the same time only because water, gel based creams are more effective for me to use during the summer time. I would need something waaay thicker for the fall and winter season to keep me hydrated and plump. During the colder seasons, my skin often looks very dehydrated and dull.

KIEHL’S Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence
I am an avid makeup user and sometimes I need a skincare pick me up. I am a huge believer in Good skin = good makeup so skincare will always be my top priority before makeup. This essence marketed to be able to remove rough textures on the skin’s surface and smooths out everything, creating a visibly improved skin appearance. Currently, it retails for 57 Canadian Dollars, I am patiently waiting for Sephora’s upcoming Fall VIB Rouge sale.

Fenty Beauty – Diamond Bomb Highlighter
I am what you call an amateur highlighter hoarder. I own quite a few but I don’t own as much as beauty gurus or influencers. I went to Sephora with my friend and she kept nagging me to swatch this highlighter. Initially, I didn’t want to but when I swatched it.. I was kinda turned off how glittery it was but as I looked at even more and layered it on, I noticed that it sort of mocks the appearance of “wet skin”. The shimmers are very fine but I’m still able to visibly see them. I don’t own anything like this and I do believe it would be a great addition to my current highlighter collection.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer
Everyone seems to be all excited for the watermelon mask but I’m all about this. This looks a moisturizer I can use under makeup, as an a skincare routine idea and all around a nice product to have on the go as well.. The waves-like glass bottle makes it look so luxurious and is so aesthetically pleasing for the eyes.

That’s it for now, friends. I wonder what else I will end up wanting or buying… Stay Tuned!

[REVIEW] Artis Couture Diamond Glow Powder – Supernova

 

 

Good evening, friends. I wanted to hop on here to share with you a stunning, blinding and unique highlighter. There’s a lot of highlighters in the market now that claim they are duo chrome but really aren’t. This shade, in particular, caught my eye because of its superb lavender shade with a slight light blue shift to it. I believe many people can pull off this shade but it really depends on what your highlighter preferences are. I personally love them all – natural, bold/blinding and pastel duo chrome highlighters.

Notes:
– This was formulated without any Parabens and Sulfates.
– Retails for $35 Canadian for 4.5 grams
– Subtle to buildable – you can layer it a lot but do keep in mind, the more the layers – the more your skin texture will be emphasized *this applies for most, if not all highlighters
– The texture is soft to the touch
– I like and dislike how there is a sifter to this packaging. The sifter controls the amount of product that falls out but regardless, it still is a messy product
– I would love to try this product in pressed form. I’m not “advance” enough to use this without making a huge mess. I lose quite a bit of product everytime I use this and no, I’m not shaking/tilting it. The powder is so fine, it legit gets everywhere.

– TIP: I use a soft tapered with natural bristles and I believe this is the best all-around highlighting brush to achieve that blinding look.

Longevity: 5/5 all day long, does not transfer or disappear from your cheeks
Pigmentation: 5/5 amazing. enough said.
Overall: 4/5, -1 because I would prefer it in a pressed powder form
