Full Face of Focallure Makeup!

2014 - 1Hello, my lovelies!Hope you all are having a great day. Last week was Latvia’s independence day(I did eat like tons of cake and watch Latvian movies…I regret nothing!).Today I’m back with something really fun…Full face of Focallure makeup (I got a whole kit for birthday) from Aliexpress

How you know I did a first impression post, like a month ago(You can read about it Focallure makeup- First Impressions!here ).Well, let’s start with the fun stuff!

Disclaimer: I'm not a professional makeup artist

Let’s start with my bare face

The first picture is me with a bare face(just moisturizer). The second picture I got my BB cream by Maybelline on(The only non Focallure item I used in this look) ,Ultra-fine light powder in the color No.2 and Sculpting Eyebrow Powder in the color 03(the middle shade of this kit, put it on with the little brush it came)

For the contour(I put it just under my cheekbones) and eye makeup, I used the Natural Color Eyeshadow in the color 03.For the highlight on my cheek, inner corner of the eye and under my brow I used Highlighter Stick in the color 2.Gold.The blush I used was Blusher by Focallure in the color 05.The mascara is Volume Curling Mascara.And the lipstick Velvet Lipstick(Fire Red).

My finished look 

It does look very dramatic…but in daylight it’s not that intense.

IMG_20171119_153148_599

I really like how it did turn out. I did wear it all day (but switched the lipstick to a more everyday color from Dzintars)and it did stay on.Nothing “moved” or “disappeared”, I didn’t get shine in the t-zone(That’s a big thing for me).I’m very pleased with this kit and the quality of the makeup.

Tell me in the comments, What product of this kit you want to see a full review on?

That’s it from me 

Till next time

Sorry about the crappy swatch picture

I still haven’t opened powder and eyeshadows, so I can’t say anything bad or good about them. About products that I have tried, I can say positive things, for now, my favorite of all is the mascara, it gives your lashes very natural look and is not clumpy. I think will do a look with all of the products in the future.

This set, It’s a great way to try some pricey product before buying it.After trying I can say I will totally buy the lipstick, but the BB cream is just not for me.

Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 2 review !

Today Let’s talk about my first product from Makeup Revolution.Just last year we started to see this brand in our stores.The stands were really sleek and eye-catching , so of course, I got something as one of my Christmas gift (plus it was affordable ).

The manufacturer promises : A perfect mix of pearl, shimmer and matte shades. Totally collectible and a pure sellout

 

 My Thoughts;

Shades: 5/5 stars

5star

You have sparkles, shimmers, and mattes all in beautiful brown tones.Perfect for everyday use.

Pigmentation :4/5 stars

How you can see darker colors are very pigmented, but the lighter ones are not..sadly

swaches
No primer, no nothing.Just eyeshadows on skin

The Formula: 3,5/5 stars

3-5-stars

For the price it’s okay, but of course not the best I ever used.I love some of them for highlights, it gives really natural glow.

Essence The Lash Curler Mascara review

The manufacturer promises:crazy curl! the lash curler is a new mascara innovation and has a manually rotating brush. unique on the market, the brush can be twisted manually as needed – sometimes more and sometimes less – while you apply your mascara to create extraordinary curl and volume. since the curl mascara is twisted by hand, it doesn’t require batteries. an absolute eye-catcher that’s fun, too! opthalmologically tested.

My Thoughts:

Shade:4/5 stars

I love it!The tip is so good or my lashes in inner corners!

The Formula: 4/5

Okay, so it will not give you the crazy fake lash effect, but more natural look.I like it , it’s not clumpy, goes on pretty smoothly.But with all that ”curler thing” it can get messy if you are in hurry.

I like it!It’s fun to use.And I like the packaging.Will I repurchase it?Maybe.

MEIKING Face Mask review

I have a confession to make…I’m Aliexpress addict.It’s my favorite online store and I just love it.So today I want to talk about this face mask I got from there –MEIKING Face Mask . 

The manufacturer promises :Main effects-Natural radix lithospermi, radix sophorae flavescent extract, eliminate pimples and remove blackheads, shrink pores and reduce excretion of oil and grease, accelerate self-repair ability of skin, promote skin to gain rebirth.

My Thoughts:

Consistency:4/5

4-stars

 

I like it.It’s not too runny, easy to apply, lasts forEVER.The only two things I don’t like are when you first apply it will burn a little(because of the ginger in the mask) and it doesn’t dry on your skin and I don’t like it.

The quality of my skin after use: 3,5/5

3 5

I did see that my skin looks better after using this mask.My skin and acne are not as red as they were,but…that’s it.It did not help me with my acne or blackheads at all, and for my skin, it’s too moisturizing.I need something more oil controlling.

Overall: 3,5/5 stars

3 5

I do like it as a once/twice a month treatment, or when I have some dry patches (Usually in winter).But not for every week use.And I do think it was too pricey.Will I repurchase it?No, but I’m glad I have tried it.

Peel off LipTint from Aliexpress

Lip Tints are one of the hottest trends in the world for the past year and of course,  I wanted to try it!But where to get it for an affordable price? ALIEXPRESS! So I found this one, a peel off kind.Got the Romantic Bear lip tint in color Sexy Red

The manufacturer promises:
– 12 Hours Lasting + Moisturizing + Waterproof
– Colorful, glossy, charming lip gloss.
– The lip membrane in accordance with the lip spread evenly, then wait 5-10 minutes to dry.
– Turns your lip color in beautiful color within 5-10 minutes

My Thoughts:

Shade:3/5 stars

stars 3 5

It’s very pigmented when you first put it on….but after all the peeling the color is very settled.

 

Long Lasting:2/5 stars 

2 out of 5 stars

Such a shame but on my lips, it stays just max 2 h.Very disappointing.

Formula:2,5/5 stars

2.5-out-of-5-stars-rating

Imagine when you go to the dentist  and he gives you a mild anesthesia for the procedure, well it’s the exact feeling you will have on your lips after using this product.And it’s messy ..really messy

My Final Thoughts:2.5-out-of-5-stars-rating

Very Disappointing.Will I purchase it again?No…But you know what maybe I was just unlucky with my experience with this product, becouse my friend has it(just in different color ) and she loves it.So if you want to try it give it a go, it’s very affordable so why not.
