Super Short Product Reviews🍃Featuring Burts🐝Bees Eyeliner

Hola Amigos!

Today in super short product reviews let’s talk about clean, all natural eyeliner👁

An absolute must have in every beauty’s makeup Arsenal.

Now if you are a complete shaky klutz like me when it comes drawing a perfect line and you are looking for a clean alternative to the drugstore eyeliner and you all you have in your wallet is a $10 bill 💰Then this episode is for you! Because today I am reviewing a brand that is not only clean and green🍃but that is super light on the wallet and super easy to use so no more panda eyes🐼

And the product I’ve been building up all this suspense about is drumroll please 🥁The Burt’s Bees🐝 Pencil eyeliner.

Ok confession time🤫I cannot use liquid eyeliner 😱I have tried so many times with so many different brands and I just cannot get a non wobbly line or get both my eyes to match 😭so forget a wing or a cats eye🥺

Which is why I finally admitted defeat and started playing around with pencil eyeliners and lo and behold I found that I can draw a semi decent line on both eyes in under an hour 😬

Ok so back to the product the eyeliner costs $9.99! I told you it was under $10.

Like all Burt’s Bees🐝products it’s free from parabens, phthalates, SLS, petrolatum or synthetic fragrances; not tested on animals🐰.

It comes in 3 shades : brown, black and grey. Being the classic girl that I am I chose the black.

It comes in two versions: the pencil which is what I have and the retractable one. I prefer the pencil because I can sharpen it whenever I want a super sharp line.

Ok on to the wearability and ease of application: it’s super easy to apply (if I can do it anyone can😒) it’s lasts all day ( I have super oily lids and even on me it stays fairly well with a tad bit smudging but you can avoid that by prepping your lids with concealer and powder I’m just too lazy to go through all that🙃)

And that’s it folks! I have you enjoyed this review let me know in the comments if you did and don’t forget to like and follow and as always see you next time 😘

Super Short Product Reviews💋Featuring @GoodMedicineBeautyLab

Hola Amigos!

Today on super short product reviews I will be reviewing two of my favorite skincare products from a brand my entire family now uses 🥳@goodmedicinebeauty.

I came across this brand during the course of my everyday Instagram browsing 😳and I have been a repeat customer ever since.

So let’s get started with the first product:

The Breeze revival mist💦is an amazing toner/mist that contains wild desert honey🍯fresh distilled limes 🍋and apple cider vinegar🍎amongst its many natural ingredients.

I use it to prep my skin before my serums, oils. It cools & calms the skin, protects from acne causing bacteria and also helps soothe any redness or inflammation.

I also use it as a makeup remover after I wash my face by spritzing it on a cotton pad and using it to remove any leftover makeup residue.

On to my second favorite❣️The Electric Sky Universal Elixir⚡️ like I said before this product is used by my entire family: 👩‍👩‍👧‍👧my mom and my sisters use this and between the four of us we have drastically different skin types. My mom has super dry skin, me and my sister have combination/oily and my middle sister had normal skin and it works for all of us ✨

So let’s get started first with applying it and I’ll talk about the ingredients along the way.

I use 2-3 drops max. That’s enough to cover my face and neck. Anymore and I find my face gets way to oily. The star ✨ingredients of this product are hemp seed oil, activated oxygen O3 & prickly pear seed oil.

My family and I have found that this product truly lives up to all of its claims:

It helps with dryness

Treats and prevents acne breakouts

Makes your skin glow

There is just one con with this product: the fragrance or odor in this case.

When you initially use it you will notice that it has a very very strong, herbaceous odor which I honestly got used to over time but I just wanted to mention it because it’s very strong🙃

Ok price 🤑the toner retails for $34 for 4oz & the Elixir is $68 for 1oz but Good Medicine has amazing sales I’m talking about 40% off on and off through the year. So make sure you subscribe to their website so you can score amazing deals.

That’s it it for this episode make sure you like and follow and see you next time 😘

Súper Short Reviews🍃Featuring 100% Pure Lip Caramels💋

Hola amigos!

Today on super short product reviews i will be talking my two absolute favorite💋 lip colors from my go to makeup brand 100% pure🍃

I have always been a huge fan of bold lip colors and red and bright pink are two of my all time favorite plus they are universally flattering colors so they work with every complexion.

So without further ado let’s get started:

The two colors I bought are the cherry cordial ( a brilliant deep pink) and the red velvet.

Cherry Cordial

Before i rave about the colors let’s go over the formulation: Like all 100% pure🍃products these too are fruit pigmented and all natural. Plus they contain pomegranate oil and coco butter meaning your lips will never be dry or flaky.

Red Velvet

These are lip caramels which can best be described as a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Which means you get deep, richly pigmented color with super, glossy shine✨

Plus they are super easy to apply with the help of the wand applicator. I personally find it very difficult to get a clean, line with regular lipsticks esp when they become rounded after a couple of uses.

They are priced at $26 for 5 ml which might seem a bit pricey but they have good sales on and off so you can score some awesome deals.

Ok moving on the colors the red velvet is a gorgeous deep brown red perfect for when you want to get all glammed up.

The cherry cordial is a beautiful, berry pink it’s listed on the website as a berry red but on me it shows up as a deep pink.

The colors do bleed a bit so I would advise using a lip liner and it’s not transfer proof so be careful when you are smooching someone😘.

And that’s a wrap thank you for watching if you like this review don’t forget to like and follow and as always see you next time.

Shopaholic 🍃Blogs Reviews: Erin’s Faces Concealer

🍃Let’s talk concealer👁. As you know I am constantly on the search for a clean, long wearing, non creasing concealer and for a while I was very happy with my Han concealer in the shade medium dark. But after a few months the concealer started feeling heavy on my skin and it was also creasing and settling into the fine lines around my eyes. That meant it was time for a new concealer which is easier said than done because if you are like me and your only option is to shop online for clean cosmetics. Then be prepared for a lot of failed attempts and wasted product and money 💸before you end up with the perfect match. Which brings us to today’s product review the @erinsfaces concealer.

🍃The product is made of only clean, green and vegan ingredients 🍃is buildable and covers beautifully and there is minimal creasing plus it’s very long lasting. Given that I have only worn it during cool weather and it’s true test will come in the grueling, sweaty summers of Dubai when everything melts off your face 🌤🔥. But I will update on the summer wearability later on in the year. In terms of color matching the pictures on the website do not accurately represent the shades. I bought the oak shade based off the color card on the website and it turned out to be too light for me. 🍃The oak in my experience is for people who are light medium in complexion. If you are of Pakistani, Indian complexion then your best and true match will be the cedar which looks orange on the website but is actually a medium dark shade. 🍃In the second picture you can see both shades side by side for a better comparison.

🍃You can also view a Video review of the concealer by clicking on the link. ⤴️

🍃In terms of packaging it comes in a glass bottle so totally ♻️. It retails at $25 for 8 ml which is a fair price. My only peeve is that the shipping is $8 😳which I find too much given that sometimes I only want to buy one product from their site and they never have free shipping ☹️Repurchase : 👍🏼 Recommend: 👍🏼

🍃Shopaholic Reviews: Booda Organics🍃

🍃Today I will be talking about the brand @boodaorganics 🍃. As you all know or if you are new will get to know that I’m a skincare afficianado😍hence I’m always on the hunt for all natural, simple & organic skincare. This time around since I was scheduled for a trip✈️ I wanted a no fuss, travel friendly, multitasking & affordable trio of products that lived up to their claims 😳tall order I know.

🍃The @boodaorganics did not disappoint : they are easy on the pocket under $25 for all 3 products. Are made from all natural🍃USDA certified ingredients: shea & cocoa 🍫butters, 🥥coconut, jojoba & olive oils & smell delicious (especially the lip balm and body butter) , the soap bar is unscented.

🍃Live up to their claims and reviews: the lip balm is super hydrating without being greasy or heavy, same for the body butter, the soap is very moisturizing. And finally they have multiple uses: the body butter I use as a face cream at night, as a lip balm, as a hand and foot moisturizer, I also used it on a cut when I had nothing else handy. The soap can be used as a shampoo as well ( only tried this on virgin hair so far not on my own color treated hair). The lip balm I used as a hand moisturizer once when I forgot my hand cream. Finally it’s super easy to travel with as it’s a no spill, easy to store packaging. Recommended❓ Highly❗️Repurchase❓Yes❗️

Shopaholic Reviews: Shirley Conlon Body Butter🍃

Hola Love Bunnies🐰!

🍃Hope you are all doing awesome! I have been fairly absent from blogging lately 😖, but I have been so bogged down with studies I simply couldn’t find the energy to pen down anything for the blog 😩.

🍃Anyways I’ll try to be more regular starting today and you guys can expect to see a new post every week 😬. So today’s post is a product review featuring a local Dubai brand : Shirley Conlon Body Butter.

 🍃I can across this brand when I was searching on Instagram for locally made organic skincare products. I had run out of my diy body cream and the ingredients to make any more batches😓. So while the new ones were on the way I needed something to keep my skin moisturized💦. 

🍃The hard water 💧and dry ☀️weather makes for really itchy and dry skin here in the UAE. So long story short I placed an order via the website and a week later my product was delivered. I paid 140 aed which is around $38. Steep 💸 I know 😓 but the product sounded promising so I figured maybe it would be worth it …. Not!

🍃First off the Body Butter was more like body oil 💦it was totally melted and had leaked all over the plastic container it came in as well the packaging😡. Which was annoying but I figured ok it’s a natural product they don’t use chemicals or binders so no big deal I’ll keep it in the fridge to harden up. Now please note it was listed on the website as a whipped cream consistency. 

🍃However once I took it out of the fridge it had solidified into a solid block 😳. So I figured never mind I’ll keep it out at room temperature which in my house is around 24 degrees 🌡celcius and it will soften up. Guess what? It turned back into a melted mess again! 😫 I was like what on earth?! I paid💰 that much for a tub of oil?! 

🍃Part of me wanted to chuck it out because I was totally frustrated by that point. I mean if I wanted a body oil I would have just gotten one that was just that: an oil! 😖. I didn’t want to call them and complain because they had taken over a week to ship out the damned thing with no communication in between whatsoever, so I wasn’t expecting any amazing customer service from them anytime soon.

🍃So here’s what I did instead I had about  half a jar of my diy cream left so I melted  my cream and mixed it with the tub of Shirley Conlon Body Butter/Oil 😒 and cooled the lot together in the freezer for a few mins and then whipped it with my handy little mixer into voila : a cream!😍 And it worked ! I had a jar of creamy body butter at last! 🎉

🍃Whew! I was so thrilled ! I was honestly pissed into speechlessness when I saw what I had received from the company. However a little ingenuity on my part saved the day, my cash and the product😇.

🍃Here is the finished version of the body cream or butter I chucked the offending jar of Shirley Conlon out and reused my old diy cream jar 😍.  

  🍃Doesn’t that look creamy and delicious❓😉. I’m so happy it worked out in the end 😇. Would I recommend Shirley Conlon products ? No way! I think I’ll stick to making my own creams from now on ✨.

🍃Have you guys ever bought any products that were total disasters? Let me know about them in the comments section 😘.

🍃Until next time loves 💕💋!
