Korres Raspberry Antioxidant Liquid Lipstick Review

29 August 2012

Yeah. I know. I'm doing a ton of Korres reviews today. Well, I took all of the pictures in one great group AND got them all edited at the same time as well. I was pretty impressed w/ myself, TBH. Anyway, this review is on two lip glosses I purchased from the JCPenneys Sephora. I believe they were phasing out the Korres makeup line from that particular location and put all of the color products on special clearance. When I bought these, I looked online and they were fairly new products to the Korres line and also still available on Sephora's website.

I am really liking these Korres lip products, so let's get this review started!

Korres Quercetin & Oak Concealer (Light) Review

18 August 2012

Okay, this is the next Korres product I want to talk about. This is the Quercetin & Oak Anti-aging/Anti-wrinkle Concealer in "02 - Light". I purchased this on clearance at the JCPenneys Sephora but this product is actually still available. In fact, when I bought this it was a newer product. I really enjoy this concealer. It's not the absolute best I've used but it's definitely up there. I don't really notice the anti-aging or anti-wrinkle properties, but I also don't really suffer from those issues yet (knock on wood).

The one thing I really like about Korres products is that they're all natural-based and have good-for-you ingredients. Now, whether or not products w/ "good" ingredients ACTUALLY work is another story, but I enjoy this concealer for concealer's sake, haha. Onward!

Korres Wild Rose Powder (04 - Medium Beige) Review

So, this was going to be part of a little Sephora haul I meant to post...ages ago. It wasn't that interesting though - most of the stuff I had purchased were all on clearance, so no one was missing out because, well, these things aren't normally on clearance. In fact, they're still being sold for full price! However, the Sephora in my local JCPenneys had it on clearance. So that's a little recommendation I have: if you have a Sephora in a Penneys near you, I suggest checking it out every so often. Because it seems that, since they're smaller, they will mark down products that they are no longer going to physically carry. I have a couple more Korres products to talk about, and I just checked Sephora - they're all still available.

Anyway, this particular review is about a couple of face products I picked up from that clearance sale. I got a face powder and a concealer and lemme tell you: they are fantastic. I'm always getting different concealers so it's somewhat silly to repurchase those, but the powder is on my "need to repurchase" list! Anyway, I don't want to ramble TOO much, so let's get this review started!

Revlon Colorstay Whipped™ Crème Makeup REVIEW

14 August 2012

Okay, I imagine this is a review that I am, yet again, tardy to the party here. This foundation has been out for a couple of months or something now and I'm just now getting to this review. Obviously, I need to get my ass in gear. ANYWAY, as I'm sure is evident by the title, this is a review on the Revlon Colorstay Whipped™ Crème Makeup. I know that a lot of people are pretty excited about this foundation and a lot of people are reading numerous reviews on it, but I'm throwing my ring in the hat - er, hat in the ring as well.

This review is SUPER long and SUPER picture heavy so...you've been warned, lovelies.

But anyway, w/o further ado, onwards to the review!

Contouring & Highlighting - Favorite Blushes

06 August 2012

Okay, so here is the last post in my little mini series thing on contouring and highlighting. I figured I mentioned my favorite bronzers and highlighters, so why not go the whole nine yards or whatnot and talk about ALL THE CHEEK PRODUCTS. So here it is, my favorite blushes. They run all over the place in terms of price. Some of them are harder to get a hold of, sadly, and others might be location-based only, but this isn't necessarily meant as a review, just as a "BAM! here it is" type of list.

There are a lot of blushes that are huge favorites of a lot of people that just don't work on my skin coloring and tone. (MAC's "Well Dressed", I'm lookin' at you.) So, this isn't meant as a "THESE COLORS ARE GREAT YOU WILL LOVE THEM I DEMAND YOU BUY THEM NAOOOOOOO," and more of an excuse for an easy blog post, haha. If I have reviews or whatnot on any of these, I will link below, as usual. I changed the format a bit, because I didn't want to say a lot about these blushes, to be honest. So no list, but I will still put names and prices and the like! Unfortunately, I'm lazy and didn't organize these by color theme so it is one GIGANTIC cluster, sorry!

This is picture-heavy and will still be pretty long, so let's get this show on the road!

Contouring & Highlighting 101 - Favorite Highlighters

I AM ON A BLOGGING ROLL RIGHT NOW. And it feels so good. I think sometimes you just need breaks...or in my case a hibernation cycle or something. Anyway, I'm getting back into the game. This is a part of my little mini series on contouring and highlighting and this post is on the highlighting products that I like.

It ranges from all different price ranges and a lot of these products are not actually meant to be highlighters but I use them as such anyway. I didn't swatch any of the products in any of these "favorite" posts because, well, I'm lazy and also these are cheek products and not eye shadows and a super sheer swatch does not necessarily mean the product would be sheer when applied to your face! That, and, uh, I'm lazy. Some of these products might have reviews, and if they do, I will link to them.

This is picture-heavy and will still be pretty long, so let's get this show on the road!

Contouring & Highlighting 101

Okay, so let's get right down to it. There's this makeup technique that has been around for ages in the industry but is fairly new when it comes to regular people like us. And it's getting a lot of buzz. Why? Because this is one of the ultimate secrets - sculpting your face. It's a method of making your face look amazing in pictures which, being a 2-D medium are, by default, flat. But it can also be used in everyday life! It's one of the questions I get asked a lot and it's one of those things people seem to be a bit wary of (which, fair enough, if done wrong, you can look crazy!)

I've always known that I was never super happy w/ how my face looks in photos. I'm Asian (obviously, haha) so my face is flatter and I also have monolids. In photos, I can look pretty damn flat, even though in real life, I do have cheekbones and eye sockets. When I first discovered contouring, I was thrilled. In fact, I went super crazy and probably looked utterly absurd for the longest time (streaks of bronzer right down my face anyone?) But this is something that everyone can do. And, yeah, there are a million tutorials on this, but I'm throwing my hat into the ring also, okay? Haha, enough rambling, right?

This is picture-heavy and will still be pretty long, so let's get this show on the road!

Contouring & Highlighting 101 - Favorite Bronzers

04 August 2012

Okay, this is the bronzer suggestion part of my contouring/highlighting blog. Originally I planned on making one big post, but it would be so fucking long that it wasn't even remotely funny, nor did it seem like a good idea even w/ page anchors because who wants to read all of that?? So instead of being one massive blog, this is going to be a four-parter - the actual contour/highlight explanation, and then three separate blogs about my favorite blushes, bronzers, and highlighters. I don't use bronzer all over my face, so none of these are overly shimmery and the shimmery bronzers I DO own are definitely not my favorites.

So this is going to be my bronzer suggestions for contouring. These are the ones I've tried. There are others that I've heard about (Tarte's "Park Avenue Princess", Too Faced's "Chocolate Soleil", etc) but I've never used them so I can't really recommend them, ya know? This list covers all price ranges and should hopefully work for a variety of skintones!

This is picture-heavy and will still be pretty long, so let's get this show on the road!
