............... Empties February 2016 ...........


Hi everyone! Can you guys believe February is almost gone, this year is flying by already don't you think? The list below includes almost all full size products, except for one sample. As always some are a hit and others a miss.



THE BODY SHOP CLEMENTINE BODY BUTTER


This is a thick body butter, I really like the consistency and the great moisture it provides to my skin especially in this cold weather. However, I don't like the sweet artificial orange scent it has, so I will repurchase it but in another scent.


VICTORIA'S SECRET COCONUT PASSION MIST


I totally love anything that smells like coconut lol, so this fragance is a hit for me. The smell doesn't last for a long time but it is okay when I am just going to stay at home all day and I want to have that refreshing scent after I take my shower. I will repurchase it.


PERLIER IMPERIAL HONEY DROPS SUPER NOURISHING BODY CREAM

 

I totally love everything about this body cream. It has the perfect consistency for everyday use, very moisturizing but not greasy, and the scent is just delightful. I already bought a new one and it is a must have for me.


VASELINE LIP THERAPY ADVANCED HEALING

 

I suffer from very dry lips and this weather does not really help. So I decided to give this a try and I am glad that I did because it the only lip product that deeply moisturizes my chapped lips but without that greasy feeling. I will repurchase it.


HAWAIIAN TROPIC SHEER TOUCH SUNSCREEN SPF 50

 

I have repurchased this sunscreen so many times, it is my favorite one! It doesn't leave a white cast and it feels more like a light moisturizer. It is not sticky or greasy and it is oil free. It dries very quickly and it doesn't interfere with the application of my makeup. Another must have for me.


PHILOSOPHY AMAZING GRACE BODY EMULSION


This body lotion doesn't provide any moisture to my skin. It has a very strong rose/citrus scent, the fragance fades quickly, and the texture is watery. I received this 1fl sample from Sephora, I will pass on this one.

What are your favorite or not so favorite products for February? Thank you so much for reading ^_^ 

I bought these products with my own money.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation and Skin Equalizer Primer


Hi lovely's and welcome back to my blog! Today I'm reviewing some Make Up For Ever products, including swatches and final look. I hope this review is helpful for you as always.


ULTRA HD FOUNDATION 


This foundation goes on very smoothly. It has a hydrating/liquidy formula, very light texture, and I don't feel it. It gives the skin a healthy and radiant glow. It has a medium coverage that can be buildable to a full one, just make sure you let it dry between each layer. The finish of this foundation is not matte or dewy, it is just like I was literally born with flawless skin! I love that it didn't crease into my fine lines and it is oil and gluten free. My skin has never looked so good after 10 hours of wearing a foundation. It does not even oxidize. This comes in a glass jar with a pump dispenser which is very hygienic and also allows you to control how much product you want to use. Two pumps are enough to cover my whole face. My shade is Y305, this foundation works great for dry to combination skin. It is perfect for special occasions, events, and photographs because it doesn't have SPF which means it doesn't provide flashback and also because it looks very natural. It looks like your own skin but much better. It blends very easy and it gives you a good amount of time to work with it. They have a total of 40 different shades which is great because they make sure everyone can find their right shade and undertones.

IS THIS FOUNDATION FOR OILY SKIN TYPE?

My sister has oily skin and she is using this foundation as well and setting is needed. She uses the foundation in combination with the Mattifying equalizer primer. She said blotting is needed after 6 hours. She loves the final look and texture of this foundation as well.

SWATCHES

 


SKIN EQUALIZER SMOOTHING AND MATTIFYING PRIMERS


I have a combination skin type. I use two of their primers, the Smoothing one that creates a soft/silky surface, that allows my foundation to glide on easily, and my skin looks perfect since it does an amazing job filling in my pores and fine lines. I use the Mattifying one on my T-Zone that controls the excess of oil I have on those areas and they make my makeup look perfect and last all day long. They come in a squeeze presentation tube. They have 7 different primers which cover all the different skin needs.

Here are the primer Swatches, so you can have a better idea about the texture of each one.
