I was so impressed with my first experience of this company’s cosmetics and skin care line It was only natural to want more! Indeed there are so many wonderful products available online from Laura’s  website that you will always be trying more, trust me.

This time around I am trying two makeup items and a skin care item. Firstly, I tried the blush in Sweetheart a Hydrasheer Pressed Blush that has a rosy matte finish that applied beautifully and stayed on all day effortlessly..This shade I think is extremely versatile and would work for many skin tones. It sells for $29.99

Secondly, I tried the Matte Rose Lipcolor which is a pinkish soft colour that has great pigment and is very moisturizing which is perfect for any time of year but especially nice for  the summer months, I wear  lipstick everyday!!Its has organic bees wax and shea butter.Rain or shine this  will become my go to!!It sells for $19

The third item in my Lux Bag was an item from their skin care line ,20% Vitamin C Serum. This couldn’t have come at  a better time as it promises to be the perfect elixir for  aging and sun damaged skin ,both categories I fit into.Actually last week I received a little too much sun as I was overwhelmed to see it.

I was thrilled to start using this last Thursday. It smells great too, like oranges! I have been using each night as it feels wonderful and soaks into my skin.It costs $24.99 for a 30 ml bottle.This is really such a wonderful local  company, that has so many certified organic products from makeup to skin care line and I always have a few items in my  virtual cart and some are repeated items for sure.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadows

IMG_7956

This was my very first purchase of their Super Shock Shadows and I was completely prepared to love them as I am a fan of the lipstick already .Colourpop has the formula I love which is liquid to a powdery matte finish in the lipstick department. The shadows did not disappoint! I am relatively new to the eyeshadow part of makeup but wow these are really incredible!  Amazing crazy pigment and zero fallout !!! I can load up the brush and nothing falls, I don’t know how they do it but even with the exchange and shipping it’s fairly affordable and reasonable and the quality blows my mind. New obsession getting more and trying their pressed eyeshadow next! I ordered four colours and received two free brushes with this ordering. Which reminds me thst they are constantly having promos and creating new products constantly, hard to keep up! The colours I choose were Ignition from the Amanda Steele Collection, Central Perk, Hot Totty and Porter. I love all of them but my favourite is Central Perk, a dark burgundy matte. Porter is a tad lighter and a a slight shimmer to it. Another really great colour. Ignition is light lavender shimmer and is a nice lid colour for the summer I am thinking .Hot Totty was my wild card , I was drawn to it online but thought it might too bright. It is bright but completely wearable all the time. Can be used in the crease or lid and or amped up to be worn brighter.I received a shader and blending brushes both of which work beautifully with these shadows. I am very pleased with this purchase from Colourpop!!

Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty Box (April 2017)

IMG_7937

This month in our Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty box we received 4 items. Firstly a blush inJezebel, which I was a little disappointed about only because we have already received a blush in another colour months previous.But it looks lovely and the compact is very large and solid with a mirror.

Secondly,I received a eye dust in the colour Helter Skelter.One can never have too many of these because they really are super pigmented and wear very well.This is a smoky dark grey.

Thirdly, I received a Eyeliner Seal, which is very interesting Mix eye dust and seal to create a paste and apply. Haven’t tried it yet but I will for sure

Lastly I received a medusa Makeup brush for eyeliner.The bristles are soft and I feel it will work nicely with the  seal I got with it.

All in all I happy that there were four items all of which are wonderful.Although next  months I wish for five items and some of their more matte eye dusts in neutrals or their new items.
