Review: L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation

I had this Foundation in my Vanity for at least three or four months now, i bought it, opened it saw the consistency of this foundation and took it right back way deep in the back of my Vanity drawer.
But couple of Days ago i thought i would give it a Try. Sadly i picked up the wrong Shade, i always go for something Ivory or Bright Beige with other Foundations but this one was way too Pink for me. Anyway before i review this, let me tell you that i have Oily / Combination Skin but still more on the Oily Site. Specially during the Summer! This is my personal and honest Opinion, cause as we all know, every product works different on everyone!

To be honest it has the weirdest texture! Is so "smoothy" just as they named this Product. But at the same time it feels super upper DRY! Its hard to describe, but on my Fingers it felt really really Good! After i checked the Consistency on that one, the first thing that came in to my Mind was the Loreal Magic Perfecting Base Primer, they almost identical even though the Primer from Loreal does not make my Skin as dry as this Foundation!

 It comes in a very pretty Jar (im not a jar person at all), and the Pink Lid actually was another Reason why i bought it. 0,67 FL OZ / 20 ML Im not sure why they say Fluid OZ cause this Product does not feel like Fluid at all...

Sheer, very Light! If you looking into Full Coverage i would not Suggest buying this.

I tried this with my F80 from Sigma, but the Brush sucked the Product way too deep in the Brush. So i went ahead and used my Fingers for it. When you apply it to your skin it rolls up into little balls which you have to attempt to blend into your skin ( see picture below ). It sinks into your lines/pores and unfortunately emphasizes these areas. I could see this working for someone with already flawless skin, but if you have any sort of imperfection as i have, i would stay away from it!

14.99-16.99$ , its very pricey for a drugstore foundation and the very low amount you getting!

Where to purchase: 
Available at all major pharmacies, Target, Walmart.

Would i Repurchase?: 
I would say NO! For someone like me who likes a Full Coverage has Oily / Acnce / Huge Pores Skin its something i would not Recommend. It fills in fine Lines, it makes your Pores visible, it doesnt cover any Imperfections and it just feels so dry on the Skin, specially on dry patches. So I stick to my Liquid Foundations. But if you looking into light coverage, and you have a perfect Skin then this is your Product. It has a Matte Finish so it def would look good on People with perfect Skin!

Review: Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum

I saw this at Target, and since i live in Utah & the Water here dries my Hair out and gives them a frizz like nothing else, i thought i would give this Product a try!

This Product comes in a 5.1 FL OZ Pump Bottle.. The Pump is very handy but to be honest i would prefer this Serum in a Sprayer Bottle, just because the Serum is so oily and after you applied it on your Hand and rubbed it on your Hairs, your Hands are Oily as something. The Consistency is not like straight Oily, it def runs slower then lets say Water, but still feels like you would have Oil in your Hand! Same as any other Garnier Fructis Products it smells good.
I apply this Product to my almost dry Hairs after i wash them. Be careful not to use too much of the Product cause if you do you will have greasy Hairs for sure. I usually use around a Pump and a half for my Hairs. Also dont apply this stuff near your Scalp, if you already have oily Hair like i do, just focus on your Ends & where your Hair is frizzy. All the Rest i just massage in the Rest of the Hair. After all that i proceed to blow dry and style.
Would I repurchase?:
I would say yes, it doesnt make my Frizz go away or anything but it makes my Hair feel Healthy and Shiny & just so incredibly smooth!

Where to purchase: 
Available at all major pharmacies, Target, Walmart.

Bath & Body Works Candle & Handsoap Haul

I know this isnt beauty related, but they on my Vanity, lighting up while i do my Makeup, so they def worth a Post! Anyway,  over the Weekend we went out to the Mall. And since Bath & Body Works had an amazing Sale going on i couldnt hold my Hands away from all those goodies, simply to say im addicted to this Store!  Right after you walk in you smell all those good Hand soaps, Lotions, Candles & all the other good Stuff! 

They had their 2 for 20$ Candle Sale (any additional candle 10$), and online there was a 10$ off coupon when you spend 30 or more, so i grabbed 3 & only paid 20$ and thats the price of usually only ONE! So gave me a 40$ Savings =]! 

The Peach Bellini smells really fruity, a lot of citrus fruits i would say & thats exactly what they claim too. The Market Peach smell really intensive and like you would sit on a porch on an old ranch and drink peach ice tea. The Wild Strawberry is my FAVORITE! It smells like CRAZY Wild Strawberry but if it would be mixed with your favorite Fragrance, really pretty. I ♥ those Candles!

Then i went ahead and bought Some Hand soaps cause they even smell better, if theres a better in that Store.. cause everything just smells so delicious & yummy and fruity and yeah i could go on =] They not your regular Hand soaps! Usually when i wash my Hands with any other Hand soap my Hands smell but thats gone as soon they dry, not with those. It leaves you the Scent on your Hands & makes them really smooth! They smell just as they claim to smell, but i def let you smell them yourself, cause in the end we all have different Likes, right? But trust me, you wont regret! Oh by the Way i got a Free Lotion with this Offer, buy 4 hand soaps get a free Hand Lotion, SCORE!

This Post wasnt Sponsered, i bought all Product with my own Money.
Till the Next Post, Smooches...

Review: Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Eyeshadow Quads

I had them for like 2 Weeks now. I dont tend to reach for them as much as i do with other of my Quads, but they really natural even though they come with lots of Shimmers! The most thing that bothers me is, when you dont have a small Brush then those will be little bit tricky to take the Eyeshadow on your Eye =]

Quad 002 English Oak:

Quad 007 Heart of Gold:

$5.99 A Quad, from where i found them!
Where to purchase: 
Available at all major pharmacies, Target, Walmart etc. 
Would i repurchase?
Im going to get other colors, but i wont repurchase the same colors over and over again, just because there is a tip too much of shimmer in them. But for those who love Shimmer i would def recommend them! If you want them to come out even more use a Eye Shadow Primer! Thanks for reading and i hope this Review was helpful to you =] always always xoxo

Review: SIGMA Synthetic Kabuki Kit

Im really really extra excited to review those! I had them for like 3 Months now and since the Day i got them i could not leave them a Day alone, they just absolutely amazing! Lets get started and btw No one paid me to do this, this is my personal Opinion on them!

This Kit comes with 4 Brushes. Those were my first Sigma Brushes and i def was expecting a lot from them. Everyone seems to brag about them, saying how good, affordable & good Quality they are, and i totally agree with them. I was bummed about the Fact that you can only buy them online and no where else, which sucked for someone impatient like me. All in one i waited 7 Days until they made it in my Hands! They come in a small size Package wrapped, and every Brush has those Brush "foils" over them. My First Impression was like "OMG THEY LOOK FANCY" and they sure are! The first thing I noticed when I purchased them was how soft they were, all four are incredibly dense and I haven't experienced any shedding or fall out in the 3 months I've been using them. Anyway lets talk about every Individuals of those Beautys =] 

Here is what Sigma Beauty says about every one of them:
F80 - Flat Kabuki: Application of liquid or cream products to flat areas of the face such as the forehead and cheeks.
F82 - Round Kabuki: Blend mineral products onto the skin.
F84 - Angled Kabuki: Buff cream blush or bronzer onto the skin.
F86 - Tapered Kabuki: Apply cream and liquid foundations onto the harder to reach contours of the face. 
Here are my Opinions:
I bought those, no one is paying me to say good things about them, those are MY PERSONAL Opinions! 

F80 Flat Kabuki :

Like : The F80 is my all time Favorite! If i had to live with one Brush in my Life this would be the one! I never ever had a Brush in my Life that gave me more flawless finish then thise one! I tried a lot of Techniques to apply my Foundation such as a lot of stippling Brushes, finger application, sponge etc. But i finally found the ONE which def is the F80! I have huge Pores, and even though i apply Primer and all kinds of Stuff i always had the Problem that all the other stuff i used to use, just smear it away instead of blending it to my Face! With the F80 Things changed! It glides gently and soft over my Face, i dont feel like i had to rub the something out of my Face to let it stick on my Face and Pores! So what i do First is i apply Foundation directly on the Brush then dip it on my face & after that i move the Brush all around my face in circular motions... All in one it maybe takes me 20 seconds till im finish with applying my Foundation, TIMESAVER!

Dislike: Cleaning/Washing this one! At least twice! (Blog Post about how i clean my Brushes SOON) 

F82 Round Kabuki:

Like : I use this Brush for either Blush as you can see or as a Foundation Brush as well =] they pretty similar only this one is more round shaped! 

 F84 Angled Kabuki: 

Like : This Brush i use for Contouring my Face with matt Bronzer. I do use it as Blush Brush as well at some Days!
Dislike: This Brush might be too big for some Faces.. Depends on your Contouring, how big and wide you contour! 

F86 Tapered Kabuki:

Like : I apply a creme Base Highlighter with this Brush.. it doesnt "suck" up the Product too much, but gives me enough amount for my Face. It makes it look natural and flawless then when i would apply it with my Fingers. LOVE THIS BRUSH! 

$56.00 (there is a coupon code offered every month)

Where to purchase: 

Would i Repurchase?:
I know i dont ever would have to cause i bought High Quality Brushes! They dont shed, the Wood is not coming off like cheap brushes would have! I just love the Fact how flawless my Skin looks like! Anyway hope this could help you a little bit on your next Brushes Purchase, trust me they worth their Money! Till next time xoxo

Review: Sally Hansen Creme Hair Remover Kit

Do you have Facial Hair growing? You dont have the Money to get a Laser Treatment? Then you defiantly need to keep reading.. 

Not normal amount of Facial Hair on the Face has a lot of Reasons, mine is that i have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrom) so my Hormons are bringing the Extra hair on the face and body. There are other Causes & Reasons why we have Facial Hair click HERE to find out why!

I dont have as much Facial Hair Grow Problem as others, but its still there. I never ever waxed my Face, shaved or anything like that, but these last few Weeks they really annoyed me specially after i applied Foundation and sprayed my fix mist on my Face, the Hairs all stood up like it was WAR Time! Thats when i knew i had to do something. So i youtubed a lot! Saw a lot of Things & Products how to get rid of it. First i thought why just dont shave them? Simply because they grow back in way faster & thicker! 
SO i went to Target this Morning and found this Product from Hally Hanson!

Before i used this Product i made sure that i read the Instructions, i just didnt wanted to mess up my Face by doing wrong Steps. It didnt say anything about a Clean Face, but i made sure that i had no Makeup on my Face and no other Products ect. So i put a Pea Size of the Hair Remover Creme on my Hand and then gently applied it on my Face. Make sure it doesnt come on your Lips, cause it will dry them out BAD, also dont apply it on your eye brows or actuall Hair!!!! The hair remover process takes 3 - 10 minutes to set in depending on your hair type and density. All in one i applied it three Times cause after every Time i took the whole Cream down there were still Hairs. One thing i didnt liked about this Creme was the Fact then as soon as you put it down your Skin starts burning, not to the point i would cry :) but it was def a burning there! But the good thing was that my Skin felt really smooth. Right after i washed my Face with warm Water, i applied the Lotion Creme that it came with it, and first my Skin burned even more but like after 5 minutes, it felt really good to have that Creme on my Face, it calms the Burning down a lot!

This Kit comes with the Hair Remover Creme (2.4 OZ 68g), a aftercare Lotion (0.5fl oz 14.7ml) which is really "runny" not as Water but it almost felt like a Gel! I would say it would last you up to 4 uses! he bottle came with a convenient airtight pump and they added an applicator unto which you can squeeze the product. 

The Remover Creme has some sort of a Alcohol Scent and a weird Like Hair Bleach Smell i would say? The Aftercare Lotion does smell good though!
 I paid 5.65$ at Target, there is a 2$ Coupon online right now though!
Where to purchase: 
Available at all major pharmacies, Target, Walmart. 

Would i Repurchase?:
I would say yes, even though it burned a lot after i took the Cream down, i would def repurchase it. Simply because of the Fact that its really affordable and it does its Job! And it didnt break me out or left my Face red like a Tomoto, cause that was the only Thing i was really afraid of, cause my skin tends to be very Sensitive. I hope this Review helped a little Bit for your possible future hair removal procedure.

A Day after my Skin finally feels normal! The Day i applied it my Skin felt like someone rubbed a rock on my Skin, to be honest i havent felt like it was my Skin on me.. Weird as it sounds! I had to reapply other Moisturizer at least 3 Times during the Day cause it dried my Skin out SO BAD! Today i feel like nothing happend yesterday, so im good to go =] I will keep you uptodate on when i have to do this again.

 Remember your Skin might react different then mine did, check the Ingredients first, cause you might react way different!

Review: Go 360° Clean by L'Oreal Paris USA

First i heard about this Product from a lot of Beauty Gurus on youtube, so i went ahead and tried the Orange Bottle first which was the Anti Breakout one and i really enjoyed it. Then i thought hey lets try the green one since this one is specialized for Deep Cleansing and Pores so for People like me with huge ones i thought it would be perfect! Came out i acutally really LOVE this one as well! It makes my Skin really Clean, smooth and doesnt make me even break out more! 

This Product comes in 5 different "options" make sure to read for what the particular one is for! Every Bottle comes with a Scrublet, which i absolutely adore! I feel that when i use the Scrublet it makes my Skin "double" as clean as i would wash it with my Hands only!

The Cleanser comes with a well-designed soft, rubbery applicator - srcublet - that makes cleansing fast and easy. So what i do is, i wet my Face first then i apply the Product on the Scrublet and gently start rubbing my Face with it. DONT Scrub like crazy though it might irritate your Skin. After im finish with that Part i simply wash it off with warm water, not too cold and not too hot! And then continue with the Rest of my Skincare.. 

 Would I repurchase?:
 Absolutely YES! Im Combination to Very Oily Skin so this def helped me from keeping away Acne!

5.99-6.99$ (for 6 FL OZ) from what i see, but Prices may very from State to State! 

 Where to purchase: 
Available at all major pharmacies, Target, Walmart. 

Hope this helped you a little for Choosing your next Skincare Product. 
Till next Time <3

Cosmetics & Beauty Products are not Cheap, can we agree on that? We all want that Palette and that high end Product but in the End we all think "Heck i dont have that much Money left to buy all those Stuff"... Here are some Tips how i save Money on my Favorites: 

As many of my Friends & Family know i LOVE Couponing!
Im not only Coupon Crazy about Groceries but most for all Beauty & Cosmetics Products. What i do is, i always look for any Sales that are going on. Like today, RITEAID has a Sale going on for Wet n Wild Cosmetics. Every Product that Retails for 1.99$ in on sale for 1.29$, now if i would have at least a 0.50$ for it i would it get it for 0.79$ each! So a total Savings of 1.20$ IF! 

 Or lets say Target would have a Sale going on for Revlon Colorstay Foundation lets say for 10.49.. and i would have a Manufactor Coupon from Revlon for 2$ (you can find them at Sites like or in coupon inserts that you find in sundays newspapers) and a TARGET COUPON for 2$ as well (you can find that one on Target`s Site) so that makes a Total of 4$!! Which trust me is a lot! So you would have to pay 6.49 for a usually 12.99$ foundation a saving of 6.50$ so basicly you could get 2 Foundations of the Price of One!

A HUGE TIP: Check the Clearence Section at your Store: OK some of you might think what a Cheapskate! Well Clereance doesnt mean that its old or nasty or anything like that, it could happen that the Store has ordered too many of them, or the Company has discontinued that particular Product. There are tons of Reasons why a Product is on Clearence, but of course be sure that it isnt ripped open or 

Here is another Trick on how to save on High End Products:
First off no matter what Product you buy such as Foundation ask in the Stores like Ulta or Sephora for Samples! You dont want to buy a Full Size Foundation for 30$ just to found out that it might not be really for you cause you break out cause of it or something else! Here is another Tip: Lets say you want to buy a Product that you did tried or just really want it! Lets say the Porefessional by Benefit Cosmetics runs for 30$ at BUT on the same Site they have a Set with that Product FULL SIZE  & 4 other Products included for 45.00$! Its a 15$ extra, yes but you save on other Products that you might buy in the near Future! So consider buying Value Kits. BTW Ulta has a 2.50 Coupon i think every Week going on as well. & their Rewards Card!

For those of you who aren't familiar with the website, HauteLook has sales on clothes, beauty, etc. The brands are changed out every few days and items don't last long since the products are usually 20% to 30% retail price.
Last but not least, there are some Cosmetics that you just cant get on Sale or Clearence like MAC, cause they never will be cause you simply pay for what you get! Good Quality! Not that Drugstore isnt as Good, but Drugstore Products were made for your every Day Pocket... Personally i get High End Products for saving up Money from Couponing, Giftcards, Hautelook and of course when Hubby spoiles me.


Hey there, how was everyone's Weekend? Mine was good, stayed at Home & spend time with the Family. So today i had to go out and grab some of the Wet n Wild Nail polishes cause RiteAid had a Sale going on, one for 1.29$ so i couldnt resist! Also im out of my Facial Cleanser so i decided to try the Cetaphil that everyone is talking about & the Body Scrub from Neutrogena as well since i started to have little bit of acne on my back. The Wet n Wild Blush i dont know it cought my Attention when i got the Nailpolishes so i thought i would give it a Try! I will def review the Cetaphil in a couple of Days maybe Weeks, depends on how my Skin reacts to it! If you would like to see a Review of any of those Products please Comment below.. Now i hope you guys have a good rest of the Day & ill talk to you soon =]

Guess its Time for April Favourites, i know im couple of Days late, but i just getting started with this Blog so i thought doing this Would be a Good Idea! 
Sodala, Willkommen zu meinen Beauty Blog, hoff es gefeallt euch, dass ich auch Deutsch berichten werde =]

Starting from the Left to the Right :] 

1 : NYX Blush in Mauve
First off, im not a huge Blush Fan, i barely use any! But i thought i give it a Try just to see how this one would Look Like... The Pigmentation is Okay, you barely see it on Dark Skin, since im very pale it does looks "natural".. What i didnt liked about that Blush was simply that it didnt stay on for long.. I would say for maybe 1-2 Hours.. All in one i would say, if you have to reapply Stuff like Powder during the Day and you dont mind reapplying a Blush as well then this is your Blush to go =]
Price: $5.99

2 : Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes
I was out of my last Facial Wipes, so i went out and tried these this past Month... It didnt break me out, but i didnt liked the Fact that they kinda Harsh on my Skin, I really have to Rub to get my Makeup off my Face. They are Dry, and i dont know, for me they just not Wet Enough... But i like the fact that it gets all my Makeup off, so if im too tired to go wash my Face before Bed, then those def help me doing the Job =]  
  Price: 3.99-5.99$

I had this Powder for a while now, but after i "youtubed" it, and my fav guru "teached" me for what you can use HD Powder for i took it out again.. I apply this after my Foundation. I use the little "puff" that it comes with, dipping it on my Face, this Way i fill in my HUGE Pores other wise you just "scrub" off your Foundation! End of Story: I love this Powder it is very affordable & really helps me with my Oily Skin, it is translusent so no Worries about picking the right Shade =] 
Price: 6$

4: B&BW Fine Fragrance Mist in Forever Sunshine
In the Begin of the Month i had a 20% off Coupon and you could combine it with their Buy3Get3ForFree Offer, so i went Crazy and bought 6 of them suckers and I LOVE THEM.. Even though they just mist`s which means they water based (perfume is oil based from what the lady told me in the Store) and only smell for i would say 1-2 Hours, i still would re purchase them, cause i just love the smell and the fact that they arent so expensive as fragrances... 
Price: 14$ Bought mine B3G3ForFree

5: MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl
I use this Base as a  Highlighter, and thats what it was made for. If you like a Glowy Finish on your Face but not too much of looking like a Christmas Ornament then this is for you! Cream Colour Bases are pretty solid in the pan but when warmed up with your fingers they become beautifully creamy. So I layer mine over the top of my foundation, after I've set it with a powder and use it as a highlight on the tops of my cheekbones and down the center of my nose and a tip under my Nose.  
 Price: 17.50$

 6: EOS Summer Fruit Lip Balm Strawberry
This is by far the best Lip Balm i had, it smells so good, feels good on the Lips & the Packaging is just too cute =]
 Price: 2.99$

 7: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched
 Im addicted to those Lip Balms! I seriously have like 6 laying down on my Vanity! They have SPF20 which i think its brilliant in a Lip Balm.. You always need some Suncare on your Face! They smell so good, they super duper moisturizing, and they come in tinted shades. The Texture is not bad at all, its not sticky at all, it just feels really smooth!
Price: 2.99$ for a 2Pack

Another Product i cant live without! They DEF a must have as a Mommy, cause where ever you go you always need anti bacterial to disinfect your Kids & your Hands to prevent any Bacterial coming into your Life :) Usually i carried a little Travel Bottle of any Anti Bacterial but then i discovered those! Bath & Body Works carries little Holders for those Tiny Bottles so you can attach them to your Purse or Diaper bag. So its on Place whenever you need it! But the best Part about those is the fact that they smell so incredibly GOOD! They have them in all kinds of fragrances. So DEF check them out, and trust me you wont regret! 
 Price: 1.50$

 9: WET N WILD MEGA LAST® NAIL COLOR in 218A I Need a Refresh-Mint
 First off im not a Huge Nail polish Fan at all, but when i saw this Color in the Store, i had to grab it! Its so Summerish and just gorgeous! I need little bit over one Coat, and its CHIP-RESISTANT! Love it!
 Price: 1.99$

10: NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Sugar Pie
Last Month i was really into Lip Products as you can see. So after all my Lip Balms and Lipsticks i get to use more often then usuall i topped everything with this Lipgloss, and personally i think this Color gives it a really natural Look with the Fact that its little bit of Shiny. So if you wear a Smokey Eye this would look good with it!
Price: 5.49$

11: Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation
This Foundation was on Sale so i combined it with a Coupon which gave me a great Deal on it, cause honestly i would not pay full Price for it. This Foundation comes without a Pump, its a flat, oval shaped applicator that is flat on one side. I wear this Foundation if i have to run quick errands.. But i would not wear it all Day long, cause it tends to give you a cakey look after a while, and for my Oily skin it sinks in every fine line on my Face. Its Okay to wear it though it doesnt has that sticky feeling on your Face!

Guess thats it for April Favorites. Please Apologize for my Bad English.. Im trying to get better in writing these Days =] If you have any Questions regarding Beauty Products that you would like to see a Review on Please contact me, or Comment below or just simply share your Opinion on those Products. Till next Time.
