Dr. Brandt BB Cream with Signature Flexitone Review

Dr. Brandt BB Cream with signature Flexitone

I have been introduced to BB creams for quiet a while now and I have been using this specific brand from Dr. Brandt on an on and off basis. This Dr. Brandt BB cream is self-adjusting so it should match any skin tone and it is good for all skin types.                                                                          

L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream Review

L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream
I received a sample size of the L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream in my Influenster Refresh Voxbox. The comforting cream smells really good and it absorbs into skin very nicely. I have combination skin and I wouldn't recommend this for use on the face area since it made my face more oily. I really wanted to use this L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream as a moisturizer prior makeup/foundation application on my face but after the result I got I decided it wasn't good enough for my skin.

I would be more likely to use this product on dry areas of my body such as my elbows, legs, ankles etc. I really like how it feels on my hand, it didn't make my hand feel slippery. This comforting cream is really lightweight.

The March 2015 Ipsy glam bag theme is "Floral Fantasy". This theme caters to the upcoming spring season. I received 6 products including a product that I redeemed with my iPsyPoints package in a shiny pink envelope with a cute blue spring flowery looking glam bag inside.

Products that I received are:
Pur~Lisse Pur~Delicate Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover ($6.43)
I am excited that I received this cleanser in my glam bag. I can use all the makeup remover in the world and I really need to stock up on these items. I'm more use to cleansing cloths but I can't pass up on a good cleanser especially one that will wash off my entire face of makeup.

NYX Butter Lipstick $6.00
I'm a huge fan of NYX Cosmetics but I've never tried the NYX Butter Lipstick until I received it my Ipsy glam bag. I have tried other NYX products like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, the NYX Butter Gloss, the NYX Macaron Lipsticks and more. When I saw the NYX Butter Lipstick in the sneak peek I was anxious to try in but I wasn't sure which coloured I wished to received any how the colour I got is Hunk, a purplish colour that has a slight shimmer.

Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Nail Lacquer
Doll Face is a light baby pink color nail polish that offers a high gloss finish. As usual I like to apply 2 coats of polish to my nails instead of one coat. For this Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Nail lacquer one coat of polish is good enough. This nail lacquer from Milani Cosmetics will last somewhere around 3-5 days on your nail or even more without stripping. It all depends on how you care for your nails. Some of my nails began to strip within 3 days while the others stayed up to 5 or more days without stripping.

Dr. Brandt Skincare pores no more Anti-aging Mattifying Lotion 
I am not into anti-aging products, so this product was definitely handed over to my mother. It is essential to use anti-aging products from early but my skin is as youthful as it can be but later on in the future I will invest in anti-aging product. I love Dr. Brandt Products....

Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush (C224)
I can never pass up on receiving a brush in my Ipsy glam bag especially a concealer brush, a brush that I would use daily. This brush from Crown Cosmetics gives a precise placement and it helps to blend concealer around my eyebrows perfectly, it is small so it gets into places. It can also be used to conceal around the lip area when wearing bold lip colours. The Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush is made of 100% flexible Japanese Torray Taklon Bristles (synthetic).

Item I redeemed with my iPsyPoints
I redeemed the Luxie Large Angled brush with my iPsyPoints. I wanted this brush in my February bag but i did not received it, luckily it was available for redemption at 1000 iPsyPoints and I had just the right amount of iPsyPoints to snag it. The brush is very soft and nice, great for applying blushes, bronzers, contouring, etc.

I enjoy receiving my monthly ipsy subscription, for $10 it is well worth it....

Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque

Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque

The Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque is a seaside detox used to deep clean the skin and peel off dirt and grease. The mask is easy to apply to the face, but one be careful not to put it on their hairline, eyebrows and around eye area as this can cause hair loss as the mask will pull the hair etc.

How to use
1. Cleanse skin properly
2. Apply a thick layer of product evenly to face with fingertips, avoiding eyes, lips and hairline.
3. Relax
4. Wait 15-20 minutes for mask to dry
5. Then peel

Montagne Mask comes in a variety: from peel off, clay, fabric cloth, scrubs and heating masks in a variety of scents and formula. They are inexpensive, easy to apply and there is plenty of product in one foil packet that can be used for two applications.

The Montagne mask took about 20 minutes to dry on my skin, it was easy to peel off and it left my face looking clean, feeling smooth and smelling good.

MAC Heroine Lipstick Review and Lip Swatch

MAC Heroine LipStick
MAC Heroine lipstick has a bright purple matte shade that can also be classified as deep plum. This MAC lipstick is housed in a standard MAC black tube packaging with silver lining. The lipstick has this vanilla signature scent like the other MAC lip products.

MAC Heroine is being categorized as a matte lipstick but it is somewhere between matte and satin as it applies creamy like satin and sets to a complete matte finish but doesn't feel drying or moisturizing on the lips. It does last long on my lips and it leaves a strong pinkish red stain when wearing off. I am impress with the longevity of this MAC Heroine lipstick, I have it on for more than 7 hours and it still stands up to its name.
