review for: My fabulous Fabletics:)

So I have been a customer of Fabletics for a long time now, and figured it would be an excellent choice for a review. I have heard a lot of sad sally’s sulk about a few things, mainly the price, and getting charged the monthly fees “against” their will, but c’mon, did they come to your house, on the nite of the 4th, and tie ya to a chair and say, “bahhaahahaahaha, we gotcha now, for another month, bahahahaahaha”, ahhh, I don’t think so, you just skip, lol! the price when compared to other brands, and compared to quality of goods, and the fact u get a whole outfit, in sizes u want, HELLO, it just works! Also, can we please understand that the selection of this brand? There’s athletic wear, swim wear, casual stuff, dresses, bras, undies, accessories, water bottles, hats, coats, etc, all of it is top notch, and has lasted me forever and a day. I have put my leggings for one through the wringer, and they have yet to pull, pill, fade, stretch, anything, and that’s with putting them in the dryer, too, lol! Which I have to admit at first I babied all my athletic stuff as with all previous brands they seemed to shrink if they even came within eye shot of a dryer, but this stuff, with the exception of some dresses, you can wash and go again no worries. The fit is fabulous, for once they know how to fit a lady, I have curves, ok, and some brands seem to think women are preteen boys, not Fabletics.! Finally lets talk about their styles and color palettes, fresh, and fashion forward, you can wear them even when your not working out, lol:) I like that they came out with plus sizes,1x-3x, I think that’s awesome!! Anyhoo, I look forward to enjoying my Fabletics, in the months ahead, and skipping the month, when I don’t want to, its just that easy, lil ladies:)

Review for you: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Matte #111 Kiss of Life

OMG, I am addicted to this saucy lil lipstick, lol!! I love everything about it, literally! The color is a homerun, it goes on smooth as silk, and dries matte, but not over too drying, I can wear this all night without worry, its there to stay, through most happy hours and beyond, haha! Seriously, though, it packs a punch in pigment, staying power, price point is pretty awesome, under $10, considering what it delivers, and I have paid allllot more for shi shi lipsticks that came off at the hint of a sip of coffee. So if you want my two cents, go for it girl, and color, I love the #111 Kiss of Life, that’s my fave, but doesn’t mean I don’t like the others:) Premo quality stuff here! Go get it, lil ladies!!

This mascara is by far the worst I have EVER tried, and believe me I have tried TONS! This stuff is junk! I don’t understand the formula, it’s supposed to be waterproof, ok, the texture feel like thick goopy honey on my eyes, I wasn’t able to layer to get length, or to thicken. I am very disappointed in everything about this crap mascara, I believe I was duped into spending around $10ish on this, which is about $9.50 too much in my opinion! Honestly I’m not trying to be so harsh but it took me almost 45 minutes and a whole bottle of my micellar water to get this gunk off my eyes, which btw, has proven to get anything off in the past๐Ÿ’‹ And cleanser AND it still was there!!Anyhoo, I guess it’s clear I am not a fan of this at all, lol! I appreciate the staying power of the formula if I can say anything positive, but the consistency is a joke, go back to the drawing board on this on, Mabelline.๐Ÿ‘Ž

Review for you๐Ÿ’‹ Lise Watier Magnifix Make up fixative with white teaย 

Just picked this up as I know Lise Watier products very well and there quality is usually amazing. This did not disappoint ! The fragrance from the white tea and marine extracts were refreshing, felt wonderful on my bare skin too as refresher during the day,I even spritzed my do, too, haha, don’t judge, the scent is irresistible!! I’m impressed with the staying power of my make up with this product, compared to without, my combo skin was tamed dramatically, too! It lasted for 8+ hours I would say, no cakey look, not to greasy either, perfect Dewy look, lovely.I could feel a firming effect on my bare skin to a certain degree, I know this could be the tea or the Chitosan marine extracts working their wonders:) I LOVE that it’s alcohol free, that’s important to me for a lot of reasons, my medications I take cause a reaction, for one, lol, another is anti aging, the less alcohol going on my face means less wrinkles and irritation๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜˜ Its made for sensitive skin, and under dermatological control. You get a decent size 115ml/3.8oz for approx. $24, in Canada. It comes in a pretty irredescent clear spray bottle. If you need another reason, this product won Elle Quebec and Canada 2016 Beauty Grand Prix BEAUTE 2016๐Ÿ’‹ Gotta love awards๐Ÿ’•Overall, I am hard pressed for anything bad to say except maybe it’s a lil pricey, BUT when u add it all the benefits, and compare it to others, it’s a no brainer, babe!๐Ÿ’‹

Anyhoo, on with the review, the lip stain, In the shade Suntry, is top notch, compared to many I have tried, in many years, I have to say. The formula is slick and thin, I like that you can control the degree  of staining, like others, but this one the pigment is nicer in quality than others I have tried. The longevity of wear during normal activities, ie , kissing my sweetie, ๐Ÿ˜˜,  drinking, eating, Over the course of a few hours I found it held up pretty awesome, really !๐Ÿ˜˜ Removing the lip stain  with make up wipes was dead easy, too:) The quality of the Younique brand is great for the price point, you won’t be disappointed. I plan on stocking up on other colors, I actually regret not getting the set of 3, oh and the mascara, too, and the foundation, it’s a game plan to try ’em all, lol! Anyhoo, please check out my virtual party, and shop a little or a lot if u please, too:) 

Thanx , Ciaos for now๐Ÿ˜˜

Battle of the primers๐Ÿ˜˜ a review of 2 great primers, but which one is better?ย

Battle of the primers๐Ÿ˜˜ a review of 2 great primers, but which one is better?ย 

As a lover of all things beauty products, make up, hair products, etc, of course primers are on that list, and so I thought I would do a review of a couple that I have been using back and forth rather consistently until recently, which hastened my need to do the review with my results:) Anyhooo, the contenders are NYX PORE FILLER, and KEIL’S micro blur skin perfector. When comparing formulas, NYX is heavy hitting in dimethicones, crosspolymers and silicas, etc., which is all that you want and expect when looking for a primer. When I first started using it, I was quite happy with it, the formulation, is thick, covers well, and claims of minimizing pores and giving a doll like finish to your face, I actually agreed with for the first little bit, maybe 2 weeks of using it, but then the texture changed, or got dry, Anyhoo, it’s not Lux going on anymore. Now as I was saying Iwas going back and forth between the two primers, the KEIL’S micro blur skin perfector ingredients are much the same as NYX, dimethicones, crosspolymers, silicas, but it also has glycerin, which acts as a humectant or moisturizer, lipo hydroxy acid, bark and lentil extracts. I have to say, right from the get go, I knew this was the one for me, but like I said I was still using both back and forth to see a comparison. However after seeing the texture change in the NYX, making it nearly impossible to put on my skin, and with the skin loving ingredients in KEIL’S, I have to say, they are a sure fire winner in my eyes! No offence, to NYX, of course, it isn’t terrible, I just prefer the KEIL’S micro blur skin perfector, and I  will too:) Anyhoo, I will continue to review, please comment, let me know what you think of these products too!๐Ÿ’•Let me know what your favourite primer is๐Ÿ’•

SIMPLY AGELESS…U GOT THAT RIGHT!ย

SIMPLY AGELESS…U GOT THAT RIGHT!ย 

I’m sold! Ok so I probably shouldn’t be starting my reviews with a “I’m sold !”right off the hop, but what can I say, it’s amazing! When compared to other liquid foundations, the viscosity is silkier and smoother, which obviously plays to the success of the partnership of the covergirl/ Olay formula. Instead of  creeping into our wrinkles it creates a beautiful new flawless complexion, plumping up the skin and giving it a youthful, dewy appearance:) It has a very light scent. I have to say that while I’m no stranger to compliments;)…..holy Hanna, when I put this stuff on, it’s like I was a hot topic at the water cooler, lol.

Normally, I am a primer girl first, then foundation, then powder, for this review, I tried it without primer, and without powder , to see how it would hold up over a days wear, and I was blown away impressed with the results, by the end of the day there was a bit of shine to my skin but beyond minimal compared to normal, but the feel, and firmness of my skin, it felt and looked refreshed. My eyeshadow, normally would be gone at this point, even with a primer, but even with out a primer, and just this foundation, everything stayed where it should, looked a lil worn, but never the less,  doable.Sorry I didn’t capture a photo of these results. I did get a picture of the next day results. So the next day I wore it, I use a brush, the website recommends a sponge, either would , comes in 12 colors, I use creamy natural 220, it is a perfect match:) Anyhoo, a little go’s a long way too, which I like too, cuz, this will set you back a pretty penny(or 2), but believe me, after you use it once, and realize you don’t even need primer, or powder, anymore:) at least (I didn’t )that will save ya in the long run๐Ÿ˜˜ Being beautiful ain’t cheap๐Ÿ˜˜ This will not be my last bottle that’s for sure:) 


I will have follow up comments,  about the other make up products I have featured in my photo in upcoming reviews๐Ÿ˜˜

Bottom line is go get some……as soon as you’re done reading my blog๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•
