January Favorites and Finished Products

Here's the first of the year for 2013.

January Favorites
Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in LORACstar: I've been testing this out this month and just fell in love with the application. It's so smooth, applies and blend easily, and hardly see any lose powder in the palette. What more to ask from eyeshadows other than I love the color!

OPI in The Impossible, Mariah Carey's Liquid Sand Collection: This is the third color out of four that I have tried from the Mariah Carey's Collection. I have mixed feeling on which one I love the most. I kind of like Stay the Night for the uniqueness, but I also like The Impossible for the hot pinkness. I would have thought I would love Get Your Number the most since blue is my favorite color. I just feel like there's a lot of blue glitter polishes that look like Get Your Number. I hardly see the other two I have tried. I can't wait to try the purple next week.

Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss: I just love this product! Not only for the flavor, but how moisturizing it is on my lips. If you use this product, you do not need to scrub your lips. It's that moisturizing! Check out my thorough review on this product. It is so worth it!

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Powder in Taupe: When it comes to drawing my non-existent eyebrows, I tend to like powders. They're pigmented, long lasting, and just look great on my brows. Plus the color is a perfect match and it's easy to use.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lip Lacquer in Rose On And On: This is a great product! I already reviewed this color so please check it out. Not only is the color beautiful, I love how glossy it is and long lasting. Since I love this product so much, I bought two more colors. I cannot wait to try them out!

January Finished Products
Aveeno Positively Ageless Lifting & Firming Eye Cream: I've been using this mostly end of last year, 2012, and January of this year. When I first started using this product, I actually liked it. It was really moisturizing. As time went on, I happen to notice there were no improvements on my wrinkles and dark circle. You can read my thorough review on this product.

Would repurchase: No.

Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black: I did not like this product at first. It was extremely wet and would stain my contact lenses. As time went on and the mascara started drying, it actually end up being nice. My lashes looked full of volume. If you're looking for lengthening product, this isn't it but it helps with volume. You can read my thorough review.

Would repurchase: No.

Aveeno Positively Ageless Skin Strengthening Body Cream: This is a great moisturizer! I first used it at home before reviewing the product. After I reviewed the product, I took this product to work. This isn't the only moisturizer I have at work. I have couple of lotions. Depending on the weather and how dry/moisturized my hands are, I reach for the product that is best suited for the situation. I ended up reaching for this product the most. It's just moisturizing and extremely helpful with my paper cuts. Since I work with papers a lot, medical records, I get a lot of paper cuts. Some moisturizers doesn't help with the paper cuts but this did.

Would repurchase: Yes!

I'm going to end with my latest nail.
This is OPI in The Impossible from the Mariah Carey's Liquid Sand Collection. It's a hot pink with different size glitters. It's a gorgeous color and looks good on my pale hands. I think I'm a NC 25 in MAC foundation now. I've gotten lighter in the past year. :/ It's suppose to have stars but I don't see it in the nail polish, as well as, on my nails.

That Lorac trio looks like my favorite thefaceshop trio which I used on my video. Are all the shades shimmery? Mine's in the baked formula, so they are rather shimmery.. I still haven't seen the nivea lip butters in my area =(

Ahleessa said...

Yes, the Lorac eyeshadow trio are shimmery. These are also baked. I guess it's similar to The Face Shop trio or maybe close? I'm not too sure... hehe~

Ahleessa said...

If everybody has been raving about the Clinique High Impact Mascara, then I'm an exception... hehe~ I did not like it much. It ruined my contact lenses *sigh*.
