Viseart Grande Pro Palette

 

IMG_20171128_165454687Absolutely Amazing!

My most recent addition to my eyeshadow palette collection is my Viseart Grand Pro.  I purchased my palette through the Muse Beauty Pro website and even participated in their pre-launch ordering about a week prior to it being launched.  This palette has 30 gorgeous, blend into each other, pigmented shades.  Twenty four of the 30 shades are colors that they pulled from their vault of archived shades and the remaining 6 can be found in existing palettes.  Alfonz of Muse Beauty stated that this palette is a collectors edition, I mean really, how fabulous is that.  It’s like they made a palette specifically for me and every other Viseart collector.

I was under the impression that there would be only 3000 palettes made and be exclusive to Muse Beauty Pro.  However, this is not totally accurate.  Yes, there were a certain number of palettes made and were lauched at Muse Beauty Pro.  From the first 3000 palettes, a number would be hand written in the lower right hand side in gold.  Once these were sold, the remaining palettes would be sold with out a number and be offered at at Muse Beauty Pro and through Beautylish.  My palette was numbered 1707/3000 and was written in the lower right hand corner in gold.

IMG_2149Shortly after receiving my palette, I saw people posting photos of their palette on their Facebook, Instagram and Blogs pages.  However, what I noticed was that their palettes did not have a palette number, curious.  So, I asked a couple people what their palette number was and where they purchased their palette.  They responded back to me saying that their palette did not come with a personalized number and they purchased their palette through Beautylish. Truthfully, I felt a wee bit bummed, as I thought I actually received one of the only 3000 palettes that were launched at Muse Beauty Pro.  This feeling was short lived though and now I’m glad that more palettes were made available to more people.  IMG_2153As of today, the Viseart Grande Pro palette can still be purchased at Muse Beauty Pro and Beautylish.

I watched the interview that Stephanie Nicole did with Anastasia, Viseart and with Alfonz, Muse Beauty Pro and this video was jam-packed with information about their newest release.  One tid bit was that they used shades that came from an archived vault.  The archived vault are shades that did not make any of there previous palettes, interesting.

I am really enjoying this palette and along with my other 4 Viseart palettes is becoming my most used.  You know, knowing what I know now about these wicked palettes, I would have only purchased Viseart, that’s how much confidence I have in Viseart.  They are all I need and sadly, my other palettes are kinda collecting dust.  If anyone out there is still considering purchasing this palette, my advice is to go through Beautylish and take advantage of the 3 easy pay schedule.  Below I have my swatches and done both brush and finger swatches and starred my favorite shades.  Until next time, take care

Youngblood Mineral Cosmentic

I have found my Holy Grail Foundation!

Perfect ShadeI was browsing around at one of the only stores that I can find products like Cargo, the full line of the NYX products, Real Techniques, and new products that I have never heard of like Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.

Beauty Native Style

There are numerous products to this line like face powders, eyeshadows, mascara and of course foundation.  The foundation that I chose was in the shade Caribbean.  It is the perfect shade and it leaves my skin looking flawless, moisturized and has the perfect coverage.  I love it so much and am so satisfied with this foundation.

Beauty Native Style

On the bottle is says, “creamy makeup provides moisture with a lasting, radiant finish.  Exclusive deep-sea hydrating complex contains ocean minerals, nutrients and botanicals.  Leaves skin silky-smooth and pore free”.  It also has a 12 month shelf life and the Youngblood Mineral cosmetics are located in Simi Valley California.

On their website https: //ybskin.com/  it says…  “Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics was formed in 1996 when our founder, Pauline Youngblood (a medical esthetician at the time), sought to create a foundation safe enough for her patients to use while recovering from skin procedures such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing. The result was our Natural Mineral Foundation, one of our most celebrated products to this day.  Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics continues to craft an extensive selection of innovative and high-performance beauty products, each gentle enough for use on damaged or healing skin, yet gorgeous enough for even the most selective makeup lover“.

…and that is what I love about this awesome product and why it is my holy grail foundation for 2017.  If you have a chance to get a sample, check it out, it will be well worth it.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Disney Minnie Beauty Palette

Purchased and Forgotten…

Disney3

I purchased the Disney Minnie Beauty Palette that was a Sephora Collection Limited Edition a few months back.  I picked it up as soon as it launched and I guess I fell victim to all the hype that it received.  I remember thinking, “Oh my goodness, I have to get my hands on this as soon as I can, being a Limited Edition, I didn’t want to take the chance of missing out.  However, I checked Sephora’s website, just before sitting down to write this post and it was still available and if you are interested in purchasing it, you can still do so.

Disney

I was excited when I received it the mail and immediately opened it up, think that I was going to be surprised and would enjoy using the palette.  I swatched all the shades, took some pictures and took it to my vanity.  First off, I it wouldn’t fit where I stored all my eyeshadow palettes, so I end up putting it in the bottom drawer, out of sight and out of mind.  The next day, I pulled it out thinking that I was going to use it and post my look on my facebook, instagram and on snapchat.  However, when I opened it, I just stared at it and closed it up and put it back in the bottom drawer, out of sight and out of mind.

Well, it’s been a couple months now and I still haven’t used it.  I have no interest in it what so ever and have forgotten I have it.  Why did I purchase this palette?   Well, I don’t know.  All I can say is, I fell victim to all the promotion and hype that it received at the time and I just purchased it.  I do not buy all the newly released makeup products because, #1-I can’t afford everything; #2-I don’t like every single product that comes out.

Disney1

In any event, I have a nice palette that I can depot, use the container as a jewelry box or something like that.  I know my grand daughters will love it and hopefully I will eventually do a look with it.  Has anyone else ever purchased a makeup product because of all the hype and end up not using it?  I really hope I’m not the only one.

Bye for now, take care and keep on keeping on.

April Empties!

Some Amazing Products and Some Not so Amazing

April Empties1

My last empties blog post was on March 18th and since then I have used up quiet a few products.  Some I absolutely loved and will definitely be repurchasing and others I did care for and will not be repurchase.  I am going to list these products in no particular order and write why I liked or disliked each product.

1.  Gucci Guilty Perfume:  This is my 3rd bottle and will definitely be repurchasing.  This fragrance is simply empowering and I only seem to wear it when I know that that day is going to be fabulous and wearing this perfume will ensure that I get everything done with perfection.  I don’t know how to describe this scent but to say it has a floral sweet scent.  It’s awesome and I love it.

2.  Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume:  Another great fragrance. This is my second bottle and will be repurchasing for is delicate lady like scent.  It’s one of those perfumes that I wear almost everyday because of it’s soft floral scent that stays with me all day.  Absolutely yummy.  img_0079.jpg

3.  Tarte’s Pure Maracuja Oil:  I can’t believe this is my third bottle since last Fall 2014.  I purchased it to prepare my skin for the upcoming Winter season when my skin becomes more drier and needs help from the brutal Winters here in northern Alberta.  It gave my skin the extra moisture it needed and will continue to use until the warmer spring/summer months set in.  Highly recommend. tarte mar oil

4.  Colleen Rothschild’s Radiant Cleansing Balm:  I watched Nicole Guerriero’s April Beauty Favorites 2014 video where she talked about her favs for the month and when she talked about the Radiant Cleansing Balm I was intrigued and thought I need this cleansing balm in my life.  Shortly after watching this video I purchased three products from the Colleen Rothschild website: Moisturizing Cream, Night Cream and the Cleansing Balm.  I am still working on my Moisture Cream which I use sparingly as these products were pricey.  I just used the last bit of my cleansing balm last night and it lasted me almost a year, a little went a long way.  It literally MELTED my makeup off and left my skin feeling smooth and fully cleansed.  This product will be making into my 2015 favorites.  I will also be repurchasing very soon.  Colleen Rothschild

5. NARS Eyeshadow Base:  I have been using this product steady for the past month and not because I liked using it but because I was trying to use it up.  I have oily eyelids and I heard other people saying that this product helped their eyeshadow stay on longer without creasing.  Well it did not help me at all, maybe for a few hours.  Anyway, I used it up and will not be repurchasing.  I will stick with my UD eyelid anti aging primer.

6.    Loreal Voluminous Manga Blackest Black Mascara:  The brush applied the mascara evenly to my lashes and after a couple layers gave my lashes some nice volume and color.  Not so much lengthening but was good.  I like to use different mascaras and I don’t remain loyal to any particular brand.  Why? Mainly because their are so many mascaras out on the market and enjoy testing them out.  I stay away from the high end as the drugstore brands are just as good if not better.

7.  dr. Brandt’s Do Not Age Samples:  I received the Neck Firm Cream and the Triple Peptide Eye Cream as a Sephora sample a few months ago and found that I liked the results.  However, I like my current routine and will not be looking to purchase these products any time soon.  DNA

8.  Moroccan Oil Treatment:  I like using this product on the ends of my hair to keep it from drying out.  It keeps my hair nice and health and gives if a nice sheen throughout the day.  I will continue to purchase.

9.  Benefits’s Porefessional:  This was a small sample size I picked up while waiting in the Sephora checkout line.  I have since purchased a full size and love the way it smooth’s over my pores and hides them nicely.  Awesome product, recommend.

10.  Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealor:  I am on my 4th tube and will continue to repurchase.  This is my favorite drug store concealor and my shade is light medium.  I love the twist up mechanism and the small brush applicator.

Well that wraps up this months empties, hope you enjoy one or two of these products and would love to hear your thoughts on any one of these products.

Some Favorites!

Here are a few products that I have enjoyed using this month.

Can you guess which product has Holy Grail status?

You can leave you guess down in the comment section.

Kat Von D’s Innersteller EyeShadow Palette:  (click here for Sephora details) I love my purples and find that I’m liking the cooler tones, huh, who knew!  The contour shade is “ok”, the eyeshadow shades are really nice and I have been able to come up with some great looks this month.  All in all a good palette.

Innersteller 2

Innersteller
Too Faced – Soul Mates – Blushing Bronzer – Carrie & Big(click here for Sephora details) This soft bronzer has a tiny hint of a sheen to it, in my opinion, and is amazing used all by itself or swirled with the peach colored blush, now that’s a gorgeous pairing!

Tarte’s Maracuja Oil(click here for Sephora details) This is my second bottle in 6 months for peat sakes.  When I first purchased, I thought that this would be a product that I was just buying because of all the hype.  However, as soon as I started using it, I totally understood all the hype that it was getting.  I have dry to normal skin and during the winter, my skin was absolutely drinking it in.  The result was soooo yummy and soft.  It will be a love for a long long time… 🙂

I have the Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum in my Sephora Cart..lol!

Just wanted to add this set of jewelry in as I have worn it a couple times this month and is one of my favorite beaded sets.
