Hi!  About a week ago I received a package from myface.cosmetics in the mail with some items to sample for a review.  I was so surprised to see that they carefully chose things that I just so happen to love.  I don't know if it's a coincidence or its just a generic package, but these were definitely colors and make up items I would have chosen for myself if I were going to go out and restock my collection.  

I took photos and will elaborate on details below so you guys can get an idea of what I think about each product.  Which are all exceptionally great quality overall!!  Thank you so much myface.cosmetics for choosing me to do this review!!

In addition to this blog post, I did a quick product review and live swatches of all of the products sent to me.  Sometimes it's better to see it in a video than just photos, don't you think?

Items in this video:
-Blingtone Eyeshadow in Raspberry Beret 
-Lil Bling Chrome Nail Polish in Raspberry Beret
-Italian Ice Eyeshadow Duo in Amalfi #65
-sl"INK"y Liquid Liner (Matte) in In Paint It Black
-My Mix Foundation in Fair 02

Just a side note, this is my latest makeup tutorial where I used the My Mix Foundation and sl"INK"y Liquid Liner that was sent to me.  I didn't show the foundation part, but used it before applying my makeup.  You can see me actually using the liner in this video though.


 Italian Ice Eyeshadow 

When I first saw these eye shadows I was very impressed.  I knew about it when I first heard of their company back in January of this year, but never gave it much thought.  I in terms of vibrancy these go on just like what's in the palette.  It's a icy sheer color, yet build-able to the intensity that you desire.  If you watch the video, I did a swatch on my fingers and just barely rubbing it, so much pigment picked up.  

I have worn this twice already and every time I did I notice no fall outs whatsoever.  The colors packed on the brush and transferred directly onto my lids without fuss.  I did use a primer, so of course that always helps.  The brush that comes with this palette is very nice and good quality.  It's not a sponge applicator, but rather an actual brush.  You can easily spot clean this and reuse over and over.  

Overall, this is a very high quality product.  It fits very conveniently in your purse and is so pretty when applied.  Not shimmery or glittery, but has a nice sheen to velvety finish.

 Blingtone Eyeshadow 

I have several of these Blingtone eye shadows from my Beauty Army subscription service from when they first started back in January of this year.  I was so happy to get these and after trying it out I was hooked.  If you're looking for a glittery-foil, metallic eye shadow, look no further.  These are pearl crushed eye shadows and have the radiance of a disco ball!

In terms of pigmentation, it looks just like what's in the pan.  You they pick up really well and are so beautiful for night time wear.  For day time wear, you may want to use very little just to add a hint of playfulness to the eyes.  

Lil Bling Chrome Nail Polish 

These chrome nail polishes were designed to match the beautiful glittery Blingtone eye shadows.  Each color has a perfect pair that is exactly in the same shade, and you can rock it on your eyes and nails.  They go on your nails just like the title, Chrome.

This particular color is so pretty and shiny that you don't even need a top coat.  The overall quality is even better.  When I wore this it lasted well over a week without chipping, and it dried pretty fast.  Not even trying to brag about it, but it's the truth :)

SL"INK"Y Liquid Liner 

This is a liquid liner that has a fine thin brush applicator so that you can easily layer for a thick wing or sharp cat eye.  I used this in my latest make up tutorial video (see above), and it applies so even and smooth.  The brush is so fine that it was very easy for me to handle without any fuss.

What I really love about it is that it dries quickly, and dries matte.  Some liners I have used before would take a while to dry and it would have a flaky or even glossy finish, which I think is very annoying.  I really love for my liners to be matte unless it's a glitter liner.  It just looks better and professional.

Overall, I have been using this liner everyday!  I honestly love it and it lasts all day.  No need to retouch and it does not flake off.  The only time it comes off is at the end of the day with makeup remover :)  Great product!! Highly RECOMMEND!!

My Mix Foundation 

Looking for the perfect foundation could be a challenge especially the one that fits to your needs.  For me, I look for something that gives my face a brighter complexion, velvet to matte finish, and long lasting.

I actually used this foundation many times already and a little goes a long way.  I'm really impressed because of the quality of the product.  The color that I received was in Fair 02, and on the site, you can choose your skin tone and get the product accordingly.  If you're unsure, they even have an expert help you.  Customer service is exceptional and will cater to your needs.

After using this foundation under my makeup, it was flawless and blended so seamlessly into my skin.  My uneven distribution of color spots throughout my face was taken care of without the help of a concealer from just a small amount of this product.  It gives medium to full coverage without the bulk or heaviness.  In addition, it did not feel cakey at all.  It was a matte finish and very very long lasting.  Even after the end of the day my face makeup still looked nice.
Overall, I loved everything and use it on a daily basis.  Everything is very high quality and lives up to its name.  Thank you again myface cosmetics!!  I am a FAN!

My thoughts......
I got the September 2012 Pambox today actually and got really busy with filming and editing the unboxing video.  I'm actually very excited to try out all of the skin care items included for the fact that there's a product I've been wanting to try but hesitant to buy.  It's the Shiseido restoring cream by the way :)  

My overall reaction to this month's box is huge 2 thumbs up!  Though there are no cosmetic items, there are plenty of skin care items to last me for a good 6 weeks.  I have heard great things about the Shiseido cream and that alone is enough to satisfy me until the October box.  I can't wait to try everything!

I have to send my appreciation to the Pambox team and say THANK YOU!  They are truly a great subscription brand to work with and dedicate each box with quality products.   I am a huge fan :)

CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes

Being a clean freak I love alcohol wipes, hand sanitizers, and anti bacterial soap in particular.  Recently I was sent a Naturals VoxBox from Influenster and included was the CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes.  

All of the items were sent to me free of charge and for reviewing purposes only.  I am not being compensated for anything I say, and therefore my opinions are not based on any factors other than my own.

With that being said, I usually have little alcohol swabs everywhere from my makeup bag to my computer desk.  Basically I clean everything and prefer these little packets over household bottle spray cleaners.  They are not only convenient, but easy to use.  The problem that I came across with the usual alcohol swabs were that they strip away all the essential moisture from my hands.  I didn't like that, but there wasn't much options for me.  I use to use lotion, but I didn't like that it packed on so much moisture back to my hands.

After I tried out the packet of CleanWell wipes, I really liked that it kept moisture in while thoroughly cleaning my hands.  They are definitely better than the usual alcohol wipes.  I looked online and the prices are not crazy either.  I have yet to purchase my full size box, but I will be after I run out of my normal alcohol swabs.  They are so convenient!!

Parissa Face & Bikini Wax Strips


I'm so sorry I've been MIA for the past few months.  I recently went on a big trip and hopefully I'll be motivated to get back into my blog.  I've said this before, but I was bummed out about the photos being limited here on blogspot.  That was the main reason I was so hesitant to blog after I did my YouTube videos.  Nevertheless, I have to edit my photos now to rescale and also choose carefully only the photos I really want to compliment each post.

Anyway, today I decided it was time to dedicate a blog post on the Parissa Wax Strips that was sent to me to review by Influenster.  It was from the Naturals VoxBox about a month ago.  I didn't get around to testing out the products contained until this week actually.  It does take some time to blog and take photos of every step, so that's another reason why I haven't wrote about it so quickly.

Parissa Quick & Easy Wax Strips: Face & Bikini (For All Hair Types)
16 (8 x 2 sided) strips

Each box has 16 strips of wax and also a bottle of Azulene Oil, which is for removal of any remaining wax on your skin, and also to retain smoothness and ingrown hair, plus enhances skin cell regeneration.  You can use the oil daily for maximum results.

Here are photos of the step by step process on how to use your wax strips:

1.  You want to warm each double strip on the palms of your hands.  

 2.  After warming the product, you can peel back slowly and use the sticky side to adhere to your skin.

3.  Make sure you don't clean your skin before you use the strips.  Press the strip on smoothly in a downward motion of where your hair grows.

4.  Before you peel off, make sure you press one hand to keep skin firm, and then quickly peel off the strip as if you're swatting a fly.  Lol I know, weird analogy...but I didn't know how else to explain it!  Peel off in the opposite direction of your hair growth so you get every little hair off.  Never peel off slowly!  The faster you peel the better the results.  And please don't use it on the same area during the same treatment.

5.  After you're done, you can reuse the same strips a few more times until there's not much stickiness left on the strip.  Here's my strip from my let:

6.  The Azulene Oil (blue bottle) is used for removing any wax residue from your skin.  You can use this daily.

*If your skin turns pink or spotty after you remove your wax strips, applying some pressure or a cube of ice to cool down (this is good for your upper-lip)

Overall, I love this product.  I'm so glad it was included in my Naturals VoxBox!  There's plenty of strips left so this will last me a few months, as I don't wax that often.  I believe a box of this retails for around $9, so it's not that bad.  It's like 50 cents per strips.  I surely can afford this :)
