Peaches and Cream by Too Faced

A highly desired line (photo does not show the whole line) by Too Faced.

If you recently stopped by and read my blog on the “Just Peachy Palette” and seen the gorgeous swatches you’ll know I’m in love with this line and I’m sure many more are too.

In this photo I have the “Peach Perfect matte foundation”, “Just Peachy Palette” and the “Peach Perfect Setting Powder.” I’ll list the color and prices.

Peach perfect 14hr matte foundation in the color natural beige. $36.00 and Peach perfect mattifying loose powder $32

Let me just say the foundation lives up to the 14 hours of staying put and matte. I’ve tried it with the setting powder and without, both left impressive results. Now, as we women all know shade selection is very important! Unfortunately, this line only offers 11 shades. I am normally light to medium from Jan-June and then medium from then on… gotta get my natural sun glow on. Lol!! I will say that the natural beige I bought is a tad light for me at the moment, but I think once Fall rolls up (so excited for fall colors) it will be a perfect match. It’s nothing a little bronzer (I currently use The Balm Betty-Lou Manizer) can’t fix. I sure hope that TF will add more shades in the future.(Pictured above) Here it is blended out using just my good ol’ finger.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to play with the loose mattifying powder it has a peachy tone that blends out to a translucent color. I broke off the plastic inside cover it came with because honestly it was just getting in the way. I guess it’s just your general preference.

Overall, I am loving this line and hope to buy some of their other products. I’ve got my eye on their Peach kiss moisture matte longwear lipsticks (boy that was a mouth full), sweetie pie matte bronzer ( idk about you guys, but I’ve never owned a “matte” bronzer!? And last but not least, the Peach my cheeks “melting” powder blush. How interesting does that sound “melting”  blush sound. 

Well, enough of my blabbering.. Fall is coming and I’d recommend these. All these products from this line smell delicious, feel good on your skin and are exclusively found at Sephora. Total “NAY” for me!!

Sonia Kashuk Eye Brush Set

It’s been a minute.. I’ve been on the hunt for a new set of makeup brushes. I’m not picky, as long as the brushes are soft, no shedding and does the job I’m a happy beauty junkie.

I’ve read some great reviews about Sonia Kashuk brushes and picked it up at my local Target, I believe it was about $20!? Kinda pricey for just that many and being a drug store brand.

Now let’s get down to business. Lol! These brushes are so soft and amazing when applying makeup. I kinda enjoyed the natural look of the handles too. However, I am not a fan of the shape of these handles. Yes, they do sit better in a cup or brush container because they’re able to fan out, but giiiirl.. once you put that brush down on the table, counter or vanity these beauties rolled right off. I was not a very happy person chasing and dropping brushes when I’m trying to get my face beat.

Final thoughts.. regardless if these brushes are soft, I cannot get deal with rolling brushes and the price point for drugstore brand. This buy was a “nay” for me.

I will continue my search and have my eye on several ones by BH Cosmetics, Tarte and Royal & Langernickle Moda brushes. I will post a review once I’ve bought and tried them out. You can find out first by following me on Instagram @jun_ko13

If you have a brush set you absolutely love please do share.

Thank you again for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed! Cheers-

Too Faced Peaches and Cream Matte palette.

If you know me, I am obsessed with anything Peach. Too Faced has done an amazing job with their first Peach palette that took the world by storm… When I heard about the “peaches and cream” line coming out, I couldn’t stand waiting!

I bought it on Sephora with their early launch and no regrets! Shipping was fast.

I think these colors are perfect for fall coming up and I can just imagine the endless looks to create. 

Pigment is so beautiful and very blendable. When I swatched it on my arm I thought some were or shall I say “looked” chalky. When applied with a brush on a nicely primed lid, it glides on. I didn’t notice any fall out either.

You guessed it, this palette smells heavenly! Imagine the smell of a warm baked Peach pie. I wondered what the soft spice smell was and found out it’s fig. This matte line is infused with peaches and fig cream that contains antioxidants and it keeps skin hydrated.

At $45 and 12 eyeshadows later.. not to mention it comes with a helpful glamour guide to give you some ideas on looks to create. On the Sephora site they have a tip that you can use the darker shades as a liner; talk about versatile and perfect as a traveling palette.

I’ve been asked which palette do I like better.. I guess that’s a fair, but difficult question. Hmm… I choose the Sweet Peach palette. Only because I can use that one as an everyday palette from day to night looks.

So ladies and gents.. this palette is a “yay” for me and it’s definitely something anyone could enjoy, Peach goes well with most skin tones.

Thanks for stopping by. Please follow for more product reviews. Cheers!

Caudalie Glow Set

Hellooo.. it’s good to be back!

Today’s topic is the Caudalie Glow Set I picked up from Sephora using my Beauty Insider points. Sorry, I can’t remember how much points it was.

Let’s get to it.. I tried their elixir spray and absolutely love it, I spray it on every night. So, when I saw this set I imagined it would be just as awesome. 

I have combination skin and even though I really don’t think I have sensitive skin, some of these products actually caused me to break out (making a sad face). In fact the only product from this set that I enjoyed was the moisturizing sorbet. However, it wasn’t all bells and whistles for me- you know.. nothing that had a “wow” factor. I personally would not purchase any of these products again.

It’s not to say it wouldn’t work fine for someone else though. Texture of products were not sticky and have a nice sweet scent. The face wash left my face feeling clean and tight, if you’re into that sorts. Lol

I guess for me some of their products were a hit and miss. I have yet to try the other products, hopefully they’re available in travel or deluxe size to test first.

Well, hope this helps someone out! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Cheers

KKW Creme Liquid Lipstick

Anyone else part of this Kylie Cosmetics craze? Giiiirl, you know we go crazy about Lippies.

Sad to say this lippie set that many us went absolutely crazy for…. stalking their website for it to be restocked, is totally NOT worth it!! Yes, I said it…. A wasted $45 Don’t be fooled that it is the same formula as the Kylie lippies because they’re not. I truly want to say this was a gimmick.

Shipping was ridiculous too! Many negative reviews regarding their shipping process. This is a whole other review….

Okay, let’s talk about the product… I’ll start with the pros (laughing to self) No doubt beautiful nudes that we live and die for, right?  Alright…. so that was the only pro?! I’m not joking, let’s get into the CONS. Take a close look at the swatches in order with the packaging. They were all very streaky!Pigmentation is very poor quality and I needed at least three applications to get the full color pay off. Maaaybe…. there could be different results on someone with lighter tones or primed lips!? That’s a BIG maybe.

Now, they didn’t put any claims out there about this being a long wearing lippie…. because that it isn’t at all. Three applications and not even an hour later I needed to reapply. Yes, it is a creme Liquid lipstick, but I’ve bought drugstore cremes that have longer staying power and pigment.

Price point…. $45 for four full size lippies, you’d think you’re getting a bargain especially being a part of Kylie Cosmetics. Don’t be fooled!! Put it this way…. I have four daughters and handed it over to them, better than just throwing money away.

A total “NAY” for me!! And that’s all I have to say about that. These are my own opinions and experience, if you tried it and disagree please leave comment below. I’m interested in hearing how this worked out for you.

Thanks for reading!

Buxom Full On Lip Polish

​​Heeelloooo beauties!!

Today, I’d like to talk about this little guy I picked up from Sephora using my Beauty Insider points. The Buxom Full On Lip Polish in the color “Dolly.”

Honestly, I really can’t understand why this got negative reviews?? I am in love! The pigment is beautiful…. the tingling to plump your lips start as soon as the doe foot starts spreading its love.

Texture: It’s definitely a gloss. I don’t get how some people complain that their lip gloss is sticky…? Most glosses are, some are just sticker than others. This one isn’t overly sticky where your lips feel stuck together.

Pigment: Beautiful color pay off. This color “Dolly” would compliment any skin tone. Beautiful shimmering Mauve. Buxom offers a wide range of colors. If you’re not into sheer, try pairing it up with your fave lipstick.

Lasting power: Not too bad… 5hrs. Considering no where does it promise to be a long wearing lip polish. 

So, is it a “yay” or “nay”? Absolutely “yay” for me! I will be purchasing the full size as soon as this little cutie runs out. I am thankful that Sephora has these wonderful products available in small sample sizes to try out before purchasing the full size product. Gives people a chance to try many different things and discover some amazing products. It’s not to say that this may not be for you, to each its own. 

Once again…. thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed! Until the next review.

Future reviews coming: Caudalie skincare routine and the First Aid Beauty set. 

Stay tuned!!

Peek Eye Shadow Primer

Hello and welcome back…. sorry I’ve been gone for too long! I’ve missed blogging so much.

First off, let me start by saying “yes, it is black!” I didn’t think this would work being that it’s black… benefit of the doubt right? I mean that’s what we order Ipsy Glambags for, to try different products, right?! 

Packaging (smh!) it’s so dang tiny like the size of a quarter possibly…. really Peek Beauty?? At first I thought I couldn’t open it because of my claws. My daughter couldn’t open it either. We tried prying it open, I tried biting it open (teeth marks on cover) and nothing! We had to get a plier to pinch it and a screw driver to jam it. Was it worth it? Hell no!!

Texture is like car grease (laughing) I’m not sure if many of you beauties out there can relate… I use to work in an automotive department. Goes on like grease. When I applied eyeshadow over it…. (rolling my eyes) absolutely nothing happen except a tacky mess that in summer heat would slide off your eyelids and give you an Edward Scissor hands look (I love Edward Scissor hands), but I don’t want to look like that.

This product is seriously a MISS!! I dislike it so much I want to cancel my subscription. Lately I’ve been getting some pretty epic fails!

Alright, thanks for stopping by. Hope you all enjoyed. Until next time.
