Zoya Naturel Deux Madeline Nail Polish

Zoya Naturel Deux Madeline

Zoya Naturel Deux Madeline

I feel in love with Zoya’s first Naturel nail polish collection because I could wear all of the 6 shades while I’m wearing my Air Force uniform and now Zoya has done it again with the Naturel Deux nail polish collection.

The first Naturel collection was introduced in Spring 2014. Zoya’s Naturel Deux collection is supposed to be the Spring to Fall transition.

Again with this collection,  I can wear each shade in my military uniform. Which is a total hit for me!

I received the Naturel Deux collection yesterday in the mail and I asked my Facebook & Instagram peeps which shade I should wear to work first and the votes were coming in and Madeline won!

Zoya Naturel Deux Madeline

Madeline by Zoya can be best described as a full-coverage, muted rose cream. Pair with any of the other Naturel 2 Collection shades for a chic tone-on-tone Fall look!

Adovia Mineral Lift Serum Review

PR Sample

Adovia mineral lift serum

This isn’t your typical face serum. Most serums are liquid or gel-like. This one on the other hand is a creamy lightweight white cream substance.

Face serum

Adovia Mineral Serum is a semi cream base, but as you can see in the picture above, it glides as if it’s melting while moving. It’s not a greasy feeling at all and does not have a scent to it.

I’ve been using this twice a day, morning and night in my skincare routine all over my face and neck.

It will definitely stay in my skincare routine unless I find something better. So far, this hasnt broken me out so I’m very thankful for that!

Bioque Eye Restore cream

Bioque Eye Restore cream Review

First off, look at how they sent me the product.

Bioque Eye Restore Cream

I kept the original packaging because this was just too beautifully packaged for me. Plus I love pink!

Bioque Skincare has been showcased in Elle magazine, Vogue, Shape, Gala, InStyle, Park Ave, and then some. I think that speaks volumes already and I was excited to try this out.

Bioque Eye Restore cream has White Truffles, Kombuchka, and Peptides.

White Truffles: rare and exclusive for tonifying, invigorating, mositure-balancing.
Kombuchka: rich in organic acids improves overall skin quality, smoothes and freshens.
Peptides: fight against skin sagging, help reduce depth of wrinkles, restoring youthful radiance of healthy skin.

What Skin type is it for?
For ALL skin types

What its supposed to do?
Improve the luminosity and clarity of our eye area.  Tighten up and firm our baggy/saddle bag look.

The packaging is clean and sleek-looking.

Bioque Eye Restore

Bioque Eye Restore is a gel-like cream.

Silky smooth and soaks into my skin effortlessly.

Bioque Eye Restore eye cream

How to apply
You can use the spatula that comes with it or just tap your ring finger into the jar and just tap around your eye area. Since your eye area is thin-skinned, don’t rub your cream into your skin.  Just lightly dab it into your skin and let it soak in.
You don’t need to use a lot, just a dab of the cream under each eye. A little goes a long way! There’s no point in wasting the cream if you don’t need too.

Would I recommend?
Hellz yea!
I love the gel-like feel and the way it just soaks into my skin. It’s tightened up my under-eye bags quite heavenly!

shu uemura eyelash curler HOLY GRAIL or HOLY FAIL

shu uemura eyelash curler

THA HOLY GRAIL of eyelash curlers!

holy grail eyelash curler shu uemura

Yes, I’m SUPER LATE to trying this baby out.  I’ve been a very loyal MAC eyelash curler user. I’ve tried tons of different look-a-likes, but MAC was the one that did the job the best for me…UNTIL NOW!

I wish I knew of a way to add Jay Z’s song Holy Grail on here to where when you 1st landed on here it played.

I always read about this “Holy Grail” eyelash curler, but they don’t sell it locally here. I decided to treat myself and order it online at the shu uemura website for $20. It’s the same price as the MAC full lash curler and they look the same.

shu uemura eyelash curler review

I don’t know how and what the shu uemura creators did to pull off this amazingness but O, M, to the G! Seriously!

It grabs every lil tiny piece of my Filipino Islander straight eyelashes and curls them to perfection! It also holds the curls without having to heat it up with a blow dryer.

BTW, I’m testing out a new eyelash serum so I’ll be posting my review on that in a few weeks.

When i order from shu uemura, I also received a sample of their cleansing oil.

Back to the eyelash curler though, I instantly FELL IN LOVE! This is what it means when they say, “Love at 1st sight.” Once you see how your eyelashes look after curling them, you fall in LOVE!

It gets right down there to your lashline and curls away. It doesn’t snag or pull your lashes out.

I kinda feel bad for my MAC eyelash curlers now because they’re sitting inside one of my drawers not seeing the sunshine anymore.

The only downfall for me is that I will have to order from the website once it gets damaged or old since there’s nowhere local for me to get it, but I’ll be the lil impatient woman that I am and will continue to use this baby.

Just check out these curls.
