Beauty Haul/ Review

Monday, August 22, 2011
I’ve always seen people doing beauty hauls/reviews on youtube etc and i thought this would be sooo cool to do my own little beauty haul:-). With that said , i went out and bought some products to show on here. So here i go :-)
The first thing on my list was :
IMAN foundation
This foundation is really auh mazing! It goes from cream to powder and it is extremely lightweight. Usually, when i wear foundation, it feels really heavy and bulky on my skin and it usually “melts” away. IMAN , stays in place for up to 8 hours. The makeup sponge is really smooth and you can tell it is of high quality just by the texture. For greater coverage, use a makeup brush to apply. It also comes in a really cute little package and i love the fact that unlike most makeup foundations, it comes with directions. ( Not everyone is a professional make-up artist). There is only one small negative thing about this product: it is really expensive. It retails from $2800 - $3000. However , i think its a great investment. I bout mine at Body Accents , they will match the colour for you :-)

BLACK OPAL TOTAL COVERAGE SPOT AND SCAR ERASER
OMG! another auh mazing product. I usually don’t like Black Opal Products, but this one works really well.It works as both a concealer and foundation. It comes in a really small tube with  a small sponge applicator right at the base which can be used to apply it directly to the skin or you can also use your finger tips. I like the fact that it is lightly scented. My shade is nutmeg and it has a light nutmeg smell. The only problem is that it is not long lasting, it tends to melt away if you are in extreme humid conditions. This is reasonably priced , it retails for $1270. For best results, use a small amount, its really potent, a little goes a long way.

MAYBELLINE SHINESENSATIONS ( CRANBERRY CRAZE)
I am not a fan of lip gloss , but i like the longevity of this product as well as the taste. It has a really fresh taste of Cranberry. It is also on the expensive side. It retails for $845 and it comes in a really small tube:-(

MAKEUP BRUSHES
Can you say “Good Deal”? This deal is a 4 for 1. There is one large foundation brush, and 3 other small make up brushes. Here’s the cool part: The large brush has an opening at the base and the smaller brushes fit neatly inside. You will have all your brushes in one place and it also saves space :-) I really love the way these brushes are packaged. If you are just starting out with makeup, i recommend getting these brushes. They are inexpensive and they are of good quality. These were only $240 at Sharells.

KLEAN COLOUR STARRY NIGHT NAIL POLISH
If you are a girly-girl who loves glitter and pink, you will love this product. It is light pink, goes on clear and has glitter as well as stars and moons in it :-) literally! The best part is that this product was on sale. It was only $135.

SCENTED NAIL POLISH REMOVER
I love scented nail polish remover, i have asthma so i can’t really handle the smell of the regular ones. It has been awhile since I’ve seen scented nail polish remover in Jamaica, so i had to grab it ( i also needed something to remove all that glitter from my nails , apparently , it is not “suited” for work). Anyway , it was only $160 , its like only $5 cheaper than the regular ones. Oh! It was in lavender :-)

COVERGIRL QUEEN (WARM CARAMEL FOUNDATION)
This is the brand i swear to. I love my cover girl queen. It give great coverage, and it is also long lasting. This one will last up to 8 hours! I started using this product last summer and i have been using it ever since. It is a bit on the expensive side . It retails anywhere between $1835 to $2000. I think its worth it. Its a great little investment.
