NIUCOCO

Best.Shampoo.Ever! Here’s the deal-O: I wash my hair pretty much every day b/c its super thin & gets greasy fast. But washing hair so often dries out the scalp so I’ve been having a sort of love/hate type of relationship with lots of shampoos I tired. Yes, they provided volume but at the cost of dry scalp – but then I discovered this NIUCOCO trio and I must say I am impressed!  NIUCOCO Hydrating shampoo: Finally something that really works! As the name says, it hydrates the hair & scalp!!! I washed my hair everyday for two weeks and no signs…

QUO COSMETICS

Nautical trend alert! The most adorable makeup packaging from this Quo Cosmetics Limited Edition Summer Collection and what’s inside doesn’t disappoint either! Quo Cosmetics Eyeshadow palette – colors Lost at Sea & Sea Sun Sand: So here is the deal-o! I have blue eyes and blue eyeshadow clashes with them, but this Lost at Sea palette is perfect for brown or green eyes! It’s a really good selection of 8 shadows to create day & night looks! My preference for blue eyes is with brown & pink shades! This Sea Sun Sand palette is perfect for summer. I like to…

SUMMER SHADES

New Season = New Makeup! Light & natural colors, that’s what Summer is all about, and this new collection from Jouviance is right on trend :) Jouviance Due Bonne Mine (color Tendresse): Perfect combo of terracotta bronzer & fresh pink blush! It’s hard for me to find the right bronzer, they usually look orange and uneven on my skin tone, which means I only have 1-2 that I like and hold on to for dear life, lol!  This will be my 1rd for sure! The bronzer blends it perfectly with my skin and the blush adds that needed flush. I…

LATEST BEAUTY FAVORITES

Healthy skin is the key. Moisturizing  & taking care of it keeps it looking youthful & feeling smooth. Best way to achieve that is to use the right products! Here are some of my latest favourites!  Lotus Aroma hand soap: AH-mazing smell & extremely gentle on the hands! When mixed with water, it turns into a perfect lather.

CLARINS SUMMER ESSENTIALS

Summer glow. Omg do I need it – I’m pale as a ghost after being covered up for months! When Summer finally makes a decision to stay put, I will be able to tan a bit using this Clarins Sun Care Milk Lotion Spray – I didn’t use this one yet, but I used the SPF 30 Oil last year and it’s by far the best sunscreen protection ever! I applied tons of it while tanning and got the perfect tan without burning (and I usually always burn given my fair skin tone) so I’m pretty sure this product is great…
