Marc Jacobs Finishing and Setting Spray Review

Tags

, ,

I have recently bought this setting/finishing spray, and I have to say I am a little disappointed! It does not perform to the quality I was hoping for and also paid for. With a prostegious name such as Marc Jacobs, one might expect high quality from the product and nothing seemingly faulty. 

The reason why I do not like this spray is because it does not spray evenly. It does not have a good sprayer on it at all! I had exchanged these bottles twice in hopes that ones performance would outperform the other. Alas I got the same result. ☹️

I will say, I like that it smells like coconuts and the spray itself does not make my makeup run like the Urban Decay setting spray. I don’t think I will buy it again. I will use it till it is empty. I really wanted to love this product. 

If you bought this let me know what you think of it in the comments!

ABH vs. Benefit: Brow Pencils

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a good holiday! I know I did. I had a chance to try out a new brow pencil over the week, since my Anastasia one had run out I thought I would try something that Huda Beauty said she loved and couldn’t live without on her Snapchat. The Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil by Benefit.

I have to say that I am in love with the Benefit brow pencil

  • The formula is so smooth
  • Applying it takes no time at all (faster than my ABH brow wiz)
  • It’s the perfect color
  • The tips are different shapes so you don’t have to guess which ones is the pencil or the spooley

It is $2 more than the ABH but I get better quality and faster service for my brows. I happily paid that and would do so again.

Let me know what you think about the Benefit or the ABH brow pencils

The Importance of Moisturizers

If you are like me skincare is pretty new to you. Yes you grow up hearing some stuff here and there about it but you don’t actually do anything about it… until you work for a cosmetic company that specializes in skincare, fragrance, and makeup. I have learned so much about skincare, that now my mornings and nights do not feel complete until I do my skincare routine.

Moisturizers are for EVERYONE

Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin all can benefit from a good moisturizer. Take me for example. I have normal to combination skin which means that I am dry in some areas and also oily in others. I said to myself ‘I don’t need a moisturizer for my skin I am oily and it will just make me even more oily.’ WRONG!!!! My morning and night moisturizers helped balance my skin. I am not oily anymore and my dry forehead is not dry. It now has the perfect balance.

Pick the Right Moisturizer for You

If you are pretty oily and it is summer time you Do Not need to go for a heavy moisturizer. Ask your beauty advisor for a perfect match for you. I would suggest a light moisturizer or even a gel mask for night time.

For my dry people, you are going to need a medium to heavy moisturizer and might have to go heavier during the winter.

Combination skin: light to medium in the summer and go a little heavier in the winter for the places you get dried out the most.

Mulit-Beneifical Moisturizers

Get one with an SPF to protect from the harmful sun rays this summer! If aging is a concern for you get one with anti-aging properties in it. There are so many options to choose from, what will you choose?

 

Sonic Brush System from Clinique

Tags

,

Hey everyone! I am so happy to be finally blogging today! Work has been crazy but I am learning a lot and having a good time.

For those of you who know, I work for Lancôme. But I work closely with the Clinique Counter and Estee Lauder. If they have good products that I love I want to share them with you guys even though they are my competition…. so is everyone in the cosmetic and skincare industry. anyways…

I saw that they had this sonic brush and really wanted to try it, to really get deep into my pores and cleanse my face. I was beyond excited to use it when I got home from work. I had my full face of makeup on and had washed all of it off with my Bi-facils makeup remover ( that gets off waterproof makeup, stains on the floor and clothing). Then it was time to cleanse. I put the facial soap on the brush, turned it on and brushed my face with it. I COULD NOT BELIEVE the extra makeup and dirt it got out of my skin! I was super impressed with the sonic brush I want to get it for my boyfriend for Christmas!

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • This brush is $80. But they have deals where they are half off. Just look for the deals. Or get a card from the department store you can save 20% on the brush as well. Or wait till you have a lot of reward dollars saved up.

 

  • The brush is electric. It comes with a charging stand to set it on.

 

  • YOU WILL GET ADDICTED!

In my personal opinion this brush is worth having. You have a clean smooth face at the end, complements on your complexion, and less skin problems.

Matte Shakers from Lancôme

, ,

Hey everyone! I am so glad to be sharing this with you today. Lancôme sent me our new Matte Shakers in the color Power Pink. Which is a fusia color. It is soooo pretty!!! We have tons of colors out for the spring and summer. 


I tried it on today and here is what I learned 

  • They have beautiful vibrant color
  • They go on smoothly and dry pretty fast
  • They stay on! But if you are eating you will have to reapply. But when I had it on I felt like nothing was on my lips until I looked in the mirror and saw my beautiful pink lips. 
  • I love them and want more!!!
  • They don’t have a smell… unlike our Juicy Shakers that actually have scents to them. 


Let me know what you think of them!

Training for Lancôme: A True Story (not a fairytale)

Tags

, ,

The great thing about Lancôme is that I never expected to be sent off for training and be spoiled to death while I was there. Lol 


When I got the job for Lancôme I was told by the person that interviewed me that I would be flying to either Texas, New York, or Florida. The 3 day business trip would be all expense paid. The hotel I would be staying at had a restaurant and so we got a voucher for our dinner meals. I didn’t have to spend a dime on this trip if I didn’t want to… but I did. I got my own room with a big screen TV. It was a very pretty spacious room. Loved it!

I ended up going to Florida for three days for my training. The classes here from 8-5.Breakfast, Lunch, and Desserts were served during our class times. (The food was amazing!!!) we had free time after class to do whatever we wanted. I made friends and hung out with them mostly after class. We went to the beach and shopping. 

WHAT WE LEARNED

  • The brand Lancôme 
  • Fragrance
  • Makeup
  • Skincare
  • Special techniques we do for our clients
  • Dress code
  • Selling

I had a very good time learning with these people. The teacher made it fun and exciting to learn this stuff.

The best part was…. GRATTIS!!!! I got a medium bottle of Genifique, La Vie Est Belle (our #1 selling fragrance) mascara, really awesome training books, a toate bag, roses. 

It was amazing and I loved every minute of it. I am glad I work for a company who spoiled me and wanted me to learn in a memorable way. I am loving what I do so far and hoping to move up in this company.

Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation from Lancôme

Hello everyone! I want to share with you this wonderful foundation that I have been using for the past month. The Teint Idole from Lancôme. 

Before I went to for my training for Lancôme, my manager gave me a goodie bad with free samples from Lancôme to take with me. One being a sample of this foundation. I already had it in my head that I wasn’t going to use it cause I already had my Sephora foundation. I tried it out and… I fell in love with this foundation!

WHY I LOVE IT

  • It glides in your face like it was butter. Such a smooth foundation and light weight. Does not feel like your wearing a mask. 
  • It is moderate to full coverage, meaning you can wear as little or as much of it as you like.
  • It is very blendable and easily complements your natural skin tone.
  • I recommend this foundation to most of my clients and it is the one we mostly have in stock because it is so popular.
  • It has an SPF of 15 to protect your skin.

So if you are looking for a great new foundation for the summer months I HIGHLY recommend this one!
