Laneige BB Cushion Makeup Review

by dietingfashion on March 29, 2017

Guys! My first Youtube video is up! I’m so excited. I have always wanted to post videos and just finally got over my nerves. Please subscribe to my channel for more upcoming videos.

Target has a great line of cosmetics. I normally just buy face wash and cleansers but was in the market for a BB Cream. I’ve used BB Cream before but it was very thick and felt weird on my face.

Summer Faves» Beauty Products

by dietingfashion on July 28, 2014

summer beauty faves1. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Hair Conditioner, 2. Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, 3. Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-talk #JPK004 Grapefruit Orange, 4. Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Skin Bath Wash Cloth/towel, 5. NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo Orgasm/ Laguna Mini 0.17 oz

After giving birth almost 18 months ago, my hair has really taken a big hit. During pregnancy, my hair and my skin were the beauty rewards! But post partum, WOW! Talk about losing hair and acne breakouts. While my hormones were maniacally rampant, I was looking for a good shampoo and conditioner to help ease the sudden flakes and hair loss. For a while, I stuck with Herbal Essence, my pre-pregnancy shampoo and conditioner. But my head began to flake so badly, I had to shower every day to feel clean! Luckily, a quick peruse through Sam’s Club, John Freida Luxurious Volume line caught my eye. What a difference this line has made to my hair. Healthier, shinier, and less maintenance! No more flakes and no more of that dirty itch the very next day.

With my breakouts (usually on my chin area), I finally decided to look for a concealer. I don’t like those with a tube and a wand. I just don’t. So a quick trip to Walgreens and a $5 rewards coupon in hand, I purchased the Maybelle Age Rewind Concealer. It’s so cool looking to me. Twist and apply. So easy. It’s great for covering under eye circles – New mom trick.

Etude House – need I say more? The ever expanding Jelly Lips line is crazy! I have purchased 6 lipsticks, but my favorite is JPK004 Grapefruit Orange. It looks mighty intimidating but on lips the orange turns pink. Apply layers to create a deeper pink. The only complaint I have is it does not last long – 1 -2 hours max on me. All depends on if I’m eating or if my lips are chapped.

Years ago, a friend gave me a Korean wash cloth she purchased at the Dollar Store. I have to say the Salux wash cloths are beyond superb. It’s a higher quality cloth – thicker and more exfoliating. Highly recommended to wash away the Texas ick that comes with summertime.

Lastly, I am not a tanner. I am a pale looking Asian chick. Bronzer is a life saver for me. I have been using Nars blush and bronzer duo for years. It’s my only bronzer – my go to color Laguna for that sunkissed look. Nars Orgasm blush is not my favorite blush but I like it for summer because of the coral hint it gives my cheeks instead of a powdery pink like the Benefit Dandelion that I use for the wintertime.

Comment below and tell me which beauty favorite you look forward to using. And thanks in advance for clicking on my links which could allow me to keep this blog up and running!

Faves » Beauty Picks of October 2013

by dietingfashion on October 20, 2013

beautypicks1013

1. Clean Hair Total Care Shampoo (here)
2. Chanel Le Vernis in Quartz (here)
3. Pixie Tinted Brilliance Balm in Radiant Rose (here)
4. Organix Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream (here)
5. Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation (here)
6. Goody’s Ouchless Ribbon Elastics (here)

I found some great beauty products lately and I’d like to share some with everyone reading. After having a baby, my hair becomes really brittle. With my first two children, approximately 2 months after giving birth, my hair would fall out in clumps! With Annabelle, I took more care with my hair. I changed my shampoo (from Herbal Essence) to Clean Total Care Shampoo and I added Omega 3’s to my diet (lots of salmon and fish oil pills). I really think it has helped because my hair feels healthier and it’s not shedding at an extreme rate. The only complaint I have with this shampoo is that it makes my hair feel really ‘squeaky’ when I’m shampooing. *Tip: A way to lock in shine to your hair is by shocking your hair with cold water right before you exit the shower. I never do it until recently. I find that it really does make my hair shine more.

Since my hair has been really superb lately, I wanted to find more products that can help maintain the shine especially since I blow dry every time I shower. Going by many recommendations online and Lauren Conrad’s, I got Organix Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream. Just a dollop of cream, rub between both hands and run through my hair. I blow dry and the cream helps keep my hair and scalp from drying out 9no more dandruff). Later when my hair is dry, I tie up my hair with creaseless elastics. These are hair elastics that are ribbons. They don’t leave a weird crease in your hair. I always had that hair problem and I was not going to stop putting my hair in a ponytail.

I finally splurged and purchased a Chanel Le Vernis Nail Color in Quartz. It was a discontinued product from Spring/Summer 2012 but Chanel brought it back. I had wanted a darker nude shade for a while so when Chanel was having a complimentary Overnight Shipping for purchases $50 or more, I had to get it. The color is a dark nude, almost tan with shimmer. There are probably so many reviews online. Check out a review on The Beauty Look Book. Another purchase from Chanel was my usual Perfection Lumiere Foundation in Beige Rose. But I was surprised that Chanel had upped the SPF from 10 to 15. Did it maintain the same coverage? Not as quite. I feel like my foundation wore off a lot quicker than the previous Perfection Lumiere with SPF 10. There’s more shine on my T zone too. Or maybe this new baby is causing my skin to change? Sleep deprivation? I don’t know.

Lastly was a purchase at Target – Pixie Tinted Brilliance Balm in Radiant Rose. It goes on like a muted Hot Pink but eventually changes to a rosy pink on my lips. Very cool indeed.

Any recommendations for me to try next? I’m looking for a bronzer for the upcoming dreary winter. Keep me posted!
