Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour

A Versatile eyeshadow stick that delivers effortless application. The creamy formula is crease, transfer and water-resistant and wears for up to 12 hours

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour - Rose Gold

This was my favorite product of the four I received. First of all, I love Rose Gold eyeshadows and have been in constant search of a creamy textured, Rose Gold shade (which I received). The Caviar Stick Eye Colour collection features over a dozen different shades in both matte and shimmer finishes.

The Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour is a long-wear, versatile, retractable shadow stick ideal for traveling.  The Rose Gold shade I received, (a rosy gold shimmer) is perfect for both day and evening wear.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour - Rose Gold

The Caviar Stick Eye Colour is very creamy and smooth in texture. One or two effortless swipes provides full pigmentation. Although you can add additional product for a more heavier, dramatic evening look.  The Eye Colour can be simply blended with fingers or with a shadow blending brush. My routine is to apply to my eyelid and smudge it out with my finger. The product adheres to the lids shortly after application and stays put all day!

The Caviar Stick Eye Colour can be used with or without primer ( I prefer primer). The best part of a stick shadow is not having any messy fall out to deal with. Other benefits of the Caviar Eye Stick Colour is that I have experienced zero creasing or fading/loss of pigmentation throughout the day.

Saturday Skin – Waterfall Glacier Water Cream

The innovative anti-aging water cream delivers mineral-rich moisture while protecting skin from free radicals with a symbiosis of science and potent ingredients including: Alaska Glacier Water, Xpertmoist, Iceland Moss Extract and Cha-7 ES Complex. 

SATURDAY SKIN Waterfall Glacier Water Cream

SATURDAY SKIN Waterfall Glacier Water Cream is labeled as a cream, although it has a more gel-like formulation.  I would imagine it would work well for most skin types, as it provides added hydration and offers added anti-aging benefits, without feeling heavy, or clogging pores. The texture of Waterfall Glacier Water Cream is again more gel-like, feeling silky-smooth in consistency and fast drying. Upon application, it provides a pleasant cooling effect. Once absorbed my skin feels refreshingly radiant and hydrated.

The packaging is classy and simple, with a luxe touch. This little jar of goodness has a front row seat on my makeup vanity. When the light reflects off the jewel adorned lid it just sparkles 🙂

SATURDAY SKIN Waterfall Glacier Water Cream

I have been using Waterfall Glacier Water Cream  every night for the past couple of weeks. I have started to notice my face appears more supple, has a smoother texture, and a less ruddy tone.  The lack of added fragrance and dyes is an added plus. I would definitely recommend. Well worth the price.

Becca Cosmetics – Be A Light Face Palette
(Medium to Deep)

This full face, finishing palette is infused with innovative Light Diffusing Technology that softly scatters light to blur, smooth and even the skin- creating a photo filter effect in real life.

Becca Cosmetics - Be A Light Face Palette (Medium to Deep)

The Becca Be A Light Face Palette comes in two different shade options, Light to Medium and Medium to Deep. I received Medium to Deep in my VoxBox. The Medium to Deep palette comes in a large, rose gold, mirrored compacts containing Sheer Glow Filter Powder in four finishes. The palette includes two large brightening and blur powders, plus two smaller powders, (a contour and a blush) located in the center of the palette.

The light textured, skin-enhancing powders contain microfine, luminescent pigments which soften, blur and even the texture of the skin, allowing light to bounce off it more effortlessly, define the complexion softly, creating a natural, sheer glow. The Sheer Glow Filter Powder acts like a real-life filter, minimizing imperfections and evening out the skin tone.  The powders were also formulated to absorb oil during touch ups without ruining your makeup.

Becca Cosmetics - Be A Light Face Palette (Medium to Deep)

The Sheer Glow Filter Powders are soft and silky-smooth, with a buttery feel. The powders apply lightly and beautifully blend to create a glowing, yet soft, natural veil, without feeling cakey or patchy. I do prefer to use the Be A Light Palette over my foundation, as opposed to bare skin, but would use it solo.

The brightening and blurring shades and their formulas are quite similar to the Hourglass Ambient Powders. However the Becca palette is more affordable and versatile.  The Hourglass powders have more of a sheen and also don’t have the blurring effect of the Becca palette.

Becca Cosmetics – Be A Light Face Palette (Medium to Deep)
Breakdown

Brightening Powder (left shade) – This shade is a natural peach beige, with a slight sheen and hint of translucent luminosity. It is brighter than the blurring powder, yet subtle and soft.

Blur Powder (right shade) – The blur powder is a warm beige with a soft-matte, satin finish. It applies sheer and leaves a noticeable blurring effect once set. skin tone shade that again, applies sheer and translucent. What I like most about the blur powder, is how it provides a blurring effect without diminishing the the sheen of the brightening powder.

Contour (bottom rectangular shade) – Think of it as a bronzer shade that creates natural dimension. by sculpting and defining your features. It is a warmer shade, offering medium, yet buildable pigmentation

Blush – This blush is highly reflective, as it contains micro shimmers which are very pigmented! It is a warm coppery marbled with rose gold pearl shade. Upon application the blush appears quite shimmery, which becomes more subtle after buffing into the skin.

Becca Cosmetics - Be A Light Face Palette (Medium to Deep Swatches) From top to bottom: Brighten, Blush, Contour and Blur shades.

Lavanila – The Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe

An award-winning, aluminum-free deodorant that delivers high performance odor protection. Bursting with freshness, this twist-up solid is powered by clean, natural ingredients and proprietary Smartsport Technology to effectively eliminate odor and minimize sweat molecules while still allowing the skin to breathe. Infused with soothing aloe and essential oils, this unique cream-to-powder formula leaves behind no white marks or wetness and is gentle on sensitive skin. 

Lavanila - The Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe

The Lavanilla website claims that there is a 2-4 week adjustment “detox” phase the body goes through when switching to natural deodorant. The website explains that after you discontinue chemical deodorant and allow your body to sweat, your body rids itself of build up bacteria, aluminum, toxins and parabens. The website also warns that during the detox phase, excessive sweating, irritation and excessive odor may occur as your sweat glands open up and release toxins. Once your body adjusts, the website claims sweat production will normalize and you will experience little to not odor, wetness or irritation.

Lavanila - The Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe

Admittedly, I tried the deodorant for a couple of days and found that while it is a pleasantly scented deodorant, that leaves no residue or white streaks on clothing, it is not an antiperspirant. In all fairness I will say that I did not, (nor was I willing at this time) to commit to the up to 30 day detox phase needed to see the full benefits of this product. Therefore my opinion of the product is limited. I will certainly praise any product based on the fact that it is free of Parabens, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oils, Silicone, Synthetic Dyes, Synthetic Fragrances, Sulfates or Aluminum.

Purchase Lavanila – The Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe at Lavanilla’s website and Sephora
