Colour Pop Satin Lippie Stix

So I have been seeing so much about all of these Colour Pop Lippie Stix and Eyeshadows all over IG and YT. Since the price of them are just $5 each I went ahead and purchased some Lippie Stix and Shadows.

Here is a video on my Satin Lippie Stix Collection:





I do have a Matte Lippie Stix and Gloss Lippie Stix collection that I will be showing you in another post very soon.

I did learn that some times the eyeshadows don't seem as vibrant and I have figured out how to fix that. I will do a video tutorial to show you how to fix that issue.

I hope this information helped.

Love U,
J

Besame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Powder

I used my regular foundation and lightly applied the powder under my eyes and on my forehead with a flat kahbuki powder brush.  It comes with a little puff in the compact but I prefer brushes. This way you set the concealer, enjoy the brightening effect, but avoid adding to the problem.It decreased my shine, but it gave my skin a little boost of brightening. My skin looked amazing and yes, brightened. 

The small (6g) container has a built-in sifter and a cap that sits directly on top of it, securing the powder and preventing accidents even when you're on the go. It's a really nice touch that I appreciate greatly. The powder itself has a delicate violet scent that doesn't create a real cast on skin but does brighten ever so slightly.



I would highly recommend all of these products and I plan to replace them when they’re gone.  For now, I am going to enjoy looking at them and using them daily.

I am so very impressed by Besame Cosmetics.  From their packaging to their customer service.  This is a company of integrity, quality products and such a beautiful concept.  I know they will stand the test of time.  They have brought back the beauty, boudoir and luxury of days gone by.  Thank you Besame for letting me experience a little bit of history in a new and improved way.

L'Oreal - Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation in 106 Sun Beige

The 1st time I tried this foundation it was pretty flakey, I used it on my oily skin without a primer.

The 2nd time I used it I tried it with my Becca Matte Primer and it was a gooey mess after 10 hours.

The 3rd time I tried it I used it with my Eve Pearl primer and by the end of the day (after 12 hours) I was shiny and oily.

Here is a video about my experience with this product.






I do use a bronzer and contour around my face so you wont notice that the actual color is too light for me, I'm an NC40 girl. It's a makeup trick that I may have to do a video on later :)

All in all the price was pretty high for a drugstore foundation, more than $10 is too much at the drugstore. I have oily skin and this foundation did nothing to combat that, alone or with primer. It was medium to full coverage. It rolled off my small tight pores as if I never applied makeup there, especially on my nose.

Not for me, No Ma'am.

Luv U,
J

Ingrown Toenail Natural Remedy with Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil


Don't ask me why but both my son and I get ingrown toenails at least 3 times a year. No matter how I cute mine or his toenails is seems to always happen. I found a great remedy for keeping the pain at bay, treating the area, and we have been getting less and less ingrown toenails. I have been using 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil that I got off amazon and it has been working wonders.

All I would do to help with the pain and treat the area is clip down the ingrown nail, dig the area out so that there is no dead skin, with a nail pick and I would dip the pick in the Tea Tree Oil. On the first night I would apply some of the tea tree oil to a cotton ball and use a bandage on top of the nail. By morning the skin would be softer and the tea tree oil with work as an anti-fungal remedy.

Each night I would apply a little more tea tree oil with either a q-tip or with the nail pick until the nail would grow back properly. The pain would fully be gone within 2 days or 3. 









I found that there are tons of ways you can use tea tree oil and this brand is the pure oil so I'm sticking to using this oil. I also love to use this tea tree oil in a mix of alkaline water and boiled soapnuts, works as a insect repellent and I can clean down my counters with it. Cool. Glad I was able to find this brand of Tea Tree Oil.
