L'Oreal Paris: True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in N2 (Classic Ivory) Review

Image
Product Summary:
This liquid foundation is infused in an innovative sponge that delivers the perfect amount of makeup. The luminous refreshing formula provides sheer to medium coverage.Tap a little for a fresh natural glow, tap on more to build a new level of luminous coverage. Formulated with precise match technology to match the skin's tone and undertone. It is safe for sensitive skin and does not clog pores. Price varies around $20.

***Not Cruelty Free 👎***
First off, I hate the sponge applicator included with this foundation. The applicator started ripping and it doesn't allow you enough control to evenly apply the foundation and have a nice finish. The application is patchy at best with the sponge provided. You are better off using a foundation brush and gradually building the coverage you want. 


The foundation feels light and comfortable on the skin but even though I got this shade in Classic Ivory it oxidizes with an orange tint so it leaves me having to set my entire…

Captain Marvel (Review)

Image
((((Please be warned there will be spoilers))))
Movie Summary: Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. With help from Nick Fury, Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls.
The visuals for the opening scene was great and it was captivating up until you realize there was no monologue included. And all the smaller scenes afterwards were just random and chaotic. I understand that Vers aka Carol's mind is chaotic due to the lack of memories but just because the protagonist has a chaotic mind doesn't mean the viewers should have one as well. Personally, I think we should've had Vers/Carol doing a monologue in the opening scene, along the lines of "I am a war…

And it reduces shine! The Koalin clay lifts away oil and impurities to help minimize shine and this cleanser is oil-free. It's also dermatologist-tested and won't clog pores. This item is priced between 20-25$.

As the seasons change, so does my skincare needs. The warmer the weather gets the more oil I tend to produce and have on my face. Winter is when I dearly need moisturizer for my face because I dry out like crazy! So when summer decides to say hello I need to get rid of the excess oil. I tend to get oil in my t-zone (middle of forehead, nose area and the surrounding cheek area close to the nose) and around my hairline. 
What I like about this product is that it removes any oil you have without completely stripping your face of moisture. A lot of cleansers tend to com…

Regarding the eyeliner; it is long lasting and pigmented. It will last throughout the whole day but it is not waterproof and if you do touch your eyeliner it will easily be removed. So, avoid using this when it's raining and don't think you'll still look cute after crying because you will resemble a raccoon. 
I usually don't use chubby eyeliner's so it did take some practice to successfully do a winged liner. But once you do get used to this liner it becomes pretty easy to apply. The one thing I do have to remark is that both the liner and creamy eyeshadow smell like medici…
