Sample look into - Kat Von D lock it foundation

Ladies 

Even though I'm not a full face foundation kinda gal, there was something about this foundation I needed to check out regardless. So the last time I was in Sephora decided to get a sample of it. Let me tell you the shade selection it's very yellow under-toned foundation. You defiantly need help from Sephora girls and color matching got so lost trying to do it myself. Like this stuff is heavy duty when I first tried it, I did 2 dots on my face and that did my whole face and onto my neck with out adding or extra. So if you're looking for a full coverage foundation with out being cakey and not drying, you got to check out this one or pick up a sample like I did. If I was looking for a full coverage foundation, I would be buying this one it's so wonderful. I like how I just needed one dot to do my whole entire face/neck. I didn't need to go back over top with a little more product, but you can also blend this out to a medium coverage if desired.

Pro's 

- 30 shade range plus a primer
- Cruelty Free
- Medium to full coverage
- Pump to bottle easy to get produt out
- Very easy to blend out I used a damp Beauty Blender
-  No Parabens
- No Sulfates
-  No Phthalates
- 24 hr wear

Pacifica Coconut Blush

Ladies


Got this in my last month's Ipsy bag and out of all the products I got, this was the biggest one I so happy on getting. Finally something from Pacifica a brand that I've heard so many great things about especially with my transition to being Cruelty-Free beauty. So far reading posts and reviews this brand seems to be on top, with being Cruelty Free makeup. Collection that everyone seems to love. I'm so impressed with how this performs and the 2 shades that you get, also its long lasting with a buildable coverage. The shades also very buildable you can add as little or build it up, to what ever you wish to have your blush at.

Do you have a favourite cruelty free/vegan company you like using ? 

Pro's 

- Gluten free
- 100 % Vegan
- Cruelty Free
- Recyclable packaging plus the front packaging is very cute!
- Blends very well very buildable
- 2-1 products  light apricot and a dusty rose shade
- Large pan sizes
- Sturdy packaging with mirror on the back
- Looks great on light-medium skin tones.

- If you don't like soft shadows you won't like these you get a little kickback with them.
- Pacifica line is a little hard to find in stores I have to go to one health store to find a good selection. It's a little pricey to keep ordering it online.

Garnier Skin Active - Pure 3&1

Ladies

This product is kinda a neat you get a 3 in one tube! What you get in this is a cleanser, scrub and a mask which was a seller for me because who doesn't like the multi-purse beauty item. I was starting to get a little oily than normal in my Tzone so decided, this was a great contender for me at the time. I truly bought it for the deep cleanser and the scrub part, the scrub is just the right grittiness. I've been using this for 2 months now and I'm quite happy with it. I use it as a scrub once a week and noticed a difference on how my skin tone is, find that it's more even and smooth where I would have bumps. The one thing I love about this is once I get in the shower, I put it on like a mask than it's shave my legs and let it set than wash it off. Found this key when it's that time of the month and your skin hates you, really helps those spots defiantly go away faster.



Pro's 

  • 3-1 product ( multi-purpose) 
  • 150ml of product 
  • Drugstore wide can find it from Walmart to even grocery stores 
  • Scrub is how i like my scrubs very gritty 
  • Cleanser is very foamy you get a good clean with it but doesn't make me tight.
  • Salicylic Acid and mineral complex 
  • Target to oily/combination skin types

Con's 

  • Wish the mask would dry down a little more than it does 

** Side note I know this product is not C.F but I bought it before my transition and I wasn't going to let a product go to waste. I'm going to use it till I'm done, than I'm going to find a CF alternative.
