July Beauty Favorites

31 Jul

Evening Meebsies,

Just finished making really good Japanese curry for dinner. ^_^ When I think about it, I’ve been cooking a lot more than usual. Maybe I should do a cooking post? Lol. Would you guys be interested in something like that? A Cooking With Meebs section? Lol. ^_^

This last month has been a really stressful one. My skin has been breaking out constantly. Not to mention the hot weather has been trying on my skin. Thank goodness for these products. I have to say that these are my all time favorite products right now. *O*

First I’m going to start off with beauty products.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! ^O^ Take it from a girl who has single lids, which equals oily lids; this product works wonders. Maybe I am a little behind on the Urban Decay Primer Potion craze, but  now I know why there was a craze to begin with. Before I found this magic in a bottle, I used Two Faced Shadow Insurance. Don’t get me wrong, I still think that it is a fairly good primer, it just didn’t really do it for my lids. It was always frustrating to have amazing eye makeup; only to come home at the end of the day wondering how long had my eye shadow been creased?! I actually first tried this as a sample from Sephora. The first time I used it and came home I was AMAZED. NO CREASING. WHOOT!!! ^O^ A must have for any girl.

One of the few things you guys should know about me is, I LOVE GLITTER!!! I just think that adding that little bit of glitter to your eye makeup makes all the difference. You never see me without a little bling bling. ^^ I love this NYX Liquid Crystal Liner! The liner itself is very sparkly. I love it when the glitter is really dense. When you put it on, it doesn’t look like glitter. It kind of looks like sparkly black eyeliner. So if you don’t like really dramatic glitter this is prefect. ^^ It’s also really long lasting but easily removable with some makeup  remover. Warning, it does sting a little because of the alcohol in the liner. But that only happens if you apply it on your waterline.

I am LOVIN’ this brush. Not only does it work like a charm, but it’s affordable. I think I paid around 12 dollars for this brush at Ulta. Which totally beats paying $30 for a Mac brush. ^^  The brush is really dense and when you use it to apply your foundation… FLLLLAWWLESSSS!!! *O*

Idk about you guys, but I love chapsticks. This is the second Nivea one I’ve tried. I’m all about honey and oatmeal. Weird right? I just had to try this out when I saw honey. The scent is really nice and it glides on my lips like butter. ^^ Really moisturizing and light. The only downside is that there isn’t any SPF. With the sunny weather, SPF would be nice.

Next are skincare products.

One of the best facial scrubs I have ever used. Extremely gentle, but very exfoliating. It does smell a little weird, and I do wish that the product wasn’t so chemically?.. smelling? I still prefer using good old oatmeal for facial masks. But this is a good alternative when you don’t have the time or resources; or when you’re traveling. If you guys know this Company Queen Helene, they make the mint julep masque. If you guys are a fan of that masks, you should try this one out as well. ^^

I have always been a fan of Clinique. Idk why it took so long for me to try out their lotion. This lotion is extremely moisturizing. Even more than the Cetaphil face lotion I’ve been using. Doesn’t make your makeup greasy, creates a great canvas for foundation, and evens skin tone. It’s pretty awesome.

AMAZING SKIN LOTION!!! This is a miracle worker. All I have to say is use it once and you’ll see the result the next day. ^_^

This body wash is awesome. It’s extremely moisturizing but leaves you clean feeling. Idk how to explain it. I hate when moisturizing body wash leaves a film on your skin where it makes you feel like you aren’t clean. On the other hand, I hate it when the body wash makes you feel so clean that you stick to everything. Lol. You guys know that I’m talking about. This is the perfect blend of everything I love without everything I hate. Also, if you have ingrown hair on your legs, use this with a loofah everyday and see them gradually disappear. ^_^

Finally hair products! ><

I have always had really flat hair. I feel like I’ve tried everything to make my hair more voluminousness. The thing is I hate the feeling of product in my hair. I like my hair to be clean and light. This product is great because it’s not heavy and easy to use. Right after the shower, you just spritz a little on the roots of your hair. Go to sleep and TA-DAH!!! Light, bouncy, full of volume hair. It’s pretty magical. *O* Plus it smells AMAZING!!!

Since I have really thick hair, I’ve always found it hard to find a hairspray that would hold my hair in place. This product is probably the only product I have found that will hold my styled hair for a whole day. Not only on a normal dry day, but on humid days as well. It smells good and doesn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy.

These are my favorites for July. ^^ I hope you guys have an awesome rest of the day.

Please remember these are just my personal experiences with the products. ^^

Much Love,

Meebs

Clinique Free Gift Event Mini Haul

29 May

Hi Meebsies,

I’m going to go off the Hong Kong Trip track for just a second because I made a pretty awesome discovery. You guys may know that I love Clinique products. ^^ Yesterday, I was at the mall and decided to pick up a bottle of clarifying lotion because I was running low. I then went on to discover that at Nordstrom Clinique is having a free gift event. If you spend $30 at Clinique, they will give you a free gift. WHOOT!!! FREE GIFT!!! ^O^

Personally, I love their free gifts because it has samples of their new line of products. It’s a great way to try out their stuff before you decide to invest. ^^ The event is still going on. I believe it ends June 10th.

Super Mini Haul. Since, I only needed a bottle of clarifying lotion I didn’t really want to spend for the sake of spending. I did pick up a post blemish formula. I’ve always had a problem with scars because of blemishes.  This is suppose to fade the appearance of scars. I guess I will have to try it out. ^^

They give you a really cute makeup bag along with…

– Liquid Facial Soap Mild
