Face of The Day / Maybelline Color Explosion Amethyst Ablazed

I've had Maybelline Eyestudio Color Explosion for sometime now. The product price ranges from $5.99 to $10.99. I believe it is a good deal for the money. The quality is also not bad, and is much better when used with eye-shadow primer. It doesn't hurt to try it!

This eye-shadow is a 5-shade palette that includes a liner shade, a light base, eyelid shade, crease shade, and a luminizing silver top coat.

The light purple base was not as pigmented as the rest of the palette, but overall, I was happy with final results. I can even wear the liner by itself. It's a nice deep purple colour.

Hair Products Haul / Peter Coppola, got2b, Amir

Since I have very long, thick and wavy hair, I'm in a constant need of moisturizing hair oils and extra-creamy conditioners that can leave my hair silky and manageable. Do you have a favorite hair product? Is there anything that worked for you?

I've been lurking in-and-out of Canadian drugstores and discount stores like Winners/T.J.Maxx, searching for something new and worth trying.

I've come across some items that seemed like worth trying. Here they are:
  • Peter Coppola Argan Oil Treatment with Acai / 14.99
  • Amir Argain Oil Moisturizing Conditioner / 12.99
  • got2B Smooth Operator Satin Drops / 4.99
  • got 2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion / 4.99

March Glymm Box / Spring Fling

The March edition of Glymm Box arrived much earlier than expected - which made me quite happy to see that the service is once again improving. After seeing other blogger's boxes, I was hesitant and nervous to see the contents of my box. Many have received a lime green piece of hair that wasn't attractive at all.

Luckily, my box had red feather hair extensions and red nail polish - the color is glam and suits me very well. I was glad. The skincare items were also exciting and a pleasant surprise. I heard that the M. Asam product is too dark, but actually it blends in to match anyone's skin-tone and becomes transparent. It also smells great and feels heavenly on my skin. I would perhaps purchase it once I run out of the sample.

  • M.Asam / Perfect Teint / $42 for 50ml / Sample size 5ml / Instant perfector. Fills in lines and evens out complexion
  • M.Asam / Magic Fini / $38 for 30ml / Sample size 5ml / Silky tinted mattifying perfector that blends in with your natural skin-tone
  • Nu-Me / Feather Hair Extensions / Full size at 3 pieces for $25 / Red, made from real human hair!
  • Ocean Nail Polish in / Vibrant and intense, high quality nail polish / Full size at $12

Overall, this box was definitely worth my $10! The nail polish is lovely and something I can always wear. Red is always in!

Nu-me hair is the only item that I am worried about since I have absolutely no experience with hair extensions. I may need to purchase a hook to hook my hair into the small bead provided. It seems like a lot of work!

Overall, I would give this month a B+!

Last Week in Photos / March 1-10th

The big event that week was my 25th Birthday! I still can't believe I turned quarter of a century, or half way to 50! Wow... I didn't feel to depressed about getting old, but instead I tried to embrace aging.

Here is the cake that my momma baked me. It was chocolate layers with cream!

I also ate like a maniac! I love food.

 My mom gave me this wonderful, stunning gold necklace:

I have won this lovely Chanel lipstick! :) More pictures to come!

Lastly, my boyfriend gave me this wonderful gift! An amazing scanner!

February Glymm Box / Are you Camera Ready?

The February Glymm box came in quite late, not until March 2nd, but it arrived with two full sized products and two exclusive product samples. Exciting!

The Sula Natural Shadow is quite pretty and creamy. It claims to keep your eyes looking flirty fresh; it's also long lasting, easy to blend, and made with natural ingredients!

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm was also in my box. This award-winning tinted lip balm gives just a hint of color and soft sweet flavor. I immediately felt it's conditioning effect.

Glamglow is something I have never heard of before, and I'm super excited to try it. It promises to give you super sexy, super radiant skin.

Lastly, there was a 2 in 1 oil blotting paper by Mai Couture that is also bronzing! To be honest, I fear I may end up looking like a clown if I wipe my face with such paper. Nevertheless, I look forward to trying it!


  • Sula Natural Shadow in Why Not? / full sized product at 0.15oz / $8
  • Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Tiger Lilly / full sized product at 4.25g /$8
  • GlamGlow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask / 7ml
  • Mai Couture 2-1 Oil Blotting Bronzing Papier / 1 sheet

Overall, I would give this month a B+!

    Product Review / Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau De Toilette

    Most recently, I entirely finished up The Body Shop's Japanese Cherry Blossom eau de toilette. The bottle was finally emptied after using it a few times a week for a year. I'm honestly impressed with how long this 50ml (1.69oz) bottle lasted! At first, this fragrance smells great, can be worn daily, doesn't irritate the people around you, and is very affordable. However, it only lasts up to 3 to 4 hours on my skin, but much longer on my clothes.

    The Japanese Cherry Blossom is made with community trade alcohol made from organic sugar cane in Ecuador. Overall, the scent is very refreshing, spring-like, light, and not too fruity nor overwhelming. 

    • Light, floral, and woody
    • Neutral, and perfect for the office
    • Not too strong, good for those with allergies
    • Fresh, feminine
    • Affordable
    • Doesn't last long
    • Boring design, doesn't come in a package
    • Has an alcohol cloud
    Value: 4/5
    Quality: 3.5/5
    Lasting Power: 3/5
    Packaging: 3/5
    Price: $$

    Overall: 3.8/5 

    Would I buy it again? Maybe if it is on SALE!
