Born This Way Foundation | Review


Hello, guys 🙂

Happy New Year, everyone!  This new year, view the world with a positive outlook, speak your heart out with confidence, listen to others as well as your inner voice and you will be on the correct road in the correct direction. If the previous year hasn’t given you something to be happy and proud of, don’t fret. If the 31st of December signifies the end of a year, the 1st of January signifies the beginning. You have life; you have hope, go out there and accomplish all that you want. Happy 2017!

I decided that my first post of 2017 would be a detailed review of the famous Born This Way foundation by Too Faced. I have purchased this like 3 weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it 5 times since then. I am in the colour Porcelain, which is a fair shade with neutral undertones. 

Now, what it’s really cool is that it is said to be infused with coconut water to delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels, alpine rose to brighten skin’s appearance and promote elastcity and also hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance, so that’s another thing that made me want to get it. 

If you’ve seen the marketing for Born This Way, you know it promises benefits that blur the lines between skincare and makeup. With claims to moisturize and brighten skin while providing medium-to-full coverage that is “so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections”. I can’t see the difference in my skincare, but as far as makeup, it is one of the best foundations I have ever used. 

 

I have normal to combination skin, and the formula works very well on my type of skin. The coverage is medium with one layer and full with two layers, as it is said on the packaging. It looks flawless on the face, exactly like you were “born this way”.

The are only two things that I do not like about this foundation.

  1. If you are wearing it alone, without any powder, it does transfer quite easy. So I totally recommend using a setting powder with this. 
  2. It doesn’t have any SPF in it, which is not that big of a deal, but I do like to take extra protection of my skin.

 

After all, if I had to rate Born This Way foundation, I would definitely give it a 9/10. I totally recommend trying this foundation out, because you will be surprised of it’s quality. 

Until next time, I wish you an amazing week and for those who still have exams to take, lots of luck 🙂

Hello, everyone 🙂

How have you been ? Today was the first day of school after the winter break and what can I say, it was pretty exhausting. I had only like 4 hours of sleep last night so I can say that I am pretty fresh.

*hah* 

I managed to film the first video of 2016 a couple of days ago and I had been editing this one for like 1-2 days, so I’m happy that it’s finally up. I hope you enjoy and please leave a comment if you use some of the products I am talking about in this video and what was your impression. 

Also, I want to apologize for the poor audio, but honestly I’ve tried to make this audio sound ok for like 3 hours and this is the best that I could get it. Again, I’m sorry, I hope that in the next months I’d be able to buy a better camera so in this way my videos would hopefully become better and better.

Thank you so much, 

Carmen

Yves Rocher Cosmetics | Haul


Hello, everyone 🙂

So the month of December is finally here. I honestly can not wait until the first snow arrives, so in this way we will feel the holiday spirit deeply and we will enjoy it more.

I personally just got out of shower and lightened a vanilla scented candle, which makes me feel very relaxed and it prepares me for a new day.

Yesterday I quickly went to the Yves Rocher store because I ran out of facial cleanser and I wanted to get another one. But, as expected, I got home with a lot more products. So I was thinking why not sharing you some of my purchases, maybe you can find something in here that you are interested in buying.

I also need to say that they have a lot of promotions every month that you can benefit from. All you need to do is to go to the nearest Yves Rocher store in your town and make a personal card, or you can acces their online site (HERE). In this way they will have you registered on their database so they can send you all of the monthly promotions. 

YOU CAN GET 30% OFF OF THE FIRST PRODUCT YOU BUY AND 35% OFF OF THE SECOND PRODUCT – so hurry up to the nearest store and make your own cardbecause this promotion is only available this month.

  • The f12309422_1000959493302734_316512065_nirst thing that I wanna talk about is the cleanser that I wanted to purchase first. This is the Hydra Vegetal Refreshing Cleansing Gel .  I use this to cleanse my skin of impurities and also to take off my makeup. It refreshes and deep cleans, leaving skin smooth, comfortable and hydrated. I can definitely give this one a 10/10.
  • The 12319441_1000959496636067_724459365_nnext thing that I have purchased is the Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Micellar WaterI use this refreshing water after I take my makeup off so it keeps the moisture locked in my skin for a longer time and it also gets rid of the impurities remained on my face. And I also noticed that after using this product, my skin looks more luminous and I can honestly feel the hydration that it provides.

 

  • 12305669_1000959503302733_518100033_nAlso, I’ve heard a lot of good things about this  Eye Makeup Remover so I decided to give it a try. And I am happy I’ve done it. It is specially designed for sensitive eyes and I found out that it also removes waterproof makeup. It is based on oil so it leaves your eyes feeling very delicated.

  • So I’ve been using this body lotion for a couple of months and I can totally say that I’m happy with it. My skin is generally dry, but on my hips and legs is very dry especially in winter, so I need to make sure that I’m keeping the moisture level good. The Expert Reparation Lotion  makes my skin smoother and visibly more beautiful. I use this everyday after I shower.

 

 

  • 12308956_1000959483302735_1787895450_nThis product is a new one for me, but I can say that I am satisfied with it. I’ve been looking for a new body scrub for quite a while and the moment I saw this Organic Exfolianting Shower Gel sitting on the shelf I went directly to it and I felt in love with the smell. So yeah, that’s basically what convinced me to buy it. 

 

 

  • 12312193_1000959469969403_513347087_nSo the last thing that I have purchased is the Vanilla Epicee Lip BalmAs you have probably noticed, I am obsessed with vanilla scented things. Once I have smelled this, I immediately felt in love with it, so I decided to buy it. You can never have enough lip balms.

 

 

 

So these are the things that I have recently bought from the Yves Rocher store and I am loving every single one of them. They have a lot of high quality products at good prices so I definitely suggest you to give some of them a try. I guarantee that you will love them. 

See you next time,

Carmen
