Laneige Lip Glowy Balm Review + Swatches

Hi all! Sharing with you this quick review of these very cute and very delightful lip balms from Laneige. You’ve seen these everywhere and a lot of you may have already tried these. I can definitely say these balms are so yummy, so addicting, and so enticing. Every scent of each tube is well-crafted and totally unique from each other. I also think that the colorful tubes brighten up the vanity table and they match each flavor/scent. Even though they’re sheer, their consistency is thick and really moisturizing without the heavy sticky feel. I do like the original Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask because of its hefty size, but it doesn’t seem to be very sanitary to use. That’s why I love these lip glowy balms not just for their flavors and colorful tubes, but also for their convenience. Just twist and apply.

Berry – My all-time favorite. I love the unique yummy scent of this that reminds me of those classic lip balms in the past.

Grapefruit – The smell of fresh grapefruit will awaken you all the time whenever you use this lip balm.

Pear – Smells like fresh pear and fresh green apple. I love this one a lot and the scent is never boring.

Peach – A lot of folks love this because this has a nice subtle peach scent.

Gummy Bear – This latest addition smells so sweet, so fruity, and just so irresistible. It won’t turn your lip purple or violet. It’s just sheer. I highly highly recommend this.

These lip balms will save your lips from dryness and chapping. On top of that, you’ll enjoy the fabulous delicious flavor or scent that each tube brings. For me, I always look forward to using these every day. So, if you love the Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks, then I bet you’ll love these as well.

Kaja Beauty Piña Colada Collection Review + Swatches

Kaja Pina Colada

 

Hello. I’m so excited to review some newness from Kaja Beauty in this post. Their latest Piña Colada collection is absolutely giving me Summer and self-care vibes even though we’re in the middle of Autumn. I can’t help but wish for more sunshine and bright warm days every time I look at these bright yellow goodies, and guess what? The scents of these are TDF. Curious much?

 

Kaja Beauty Balmy Bento Lip Balm+Scrub Pina Colada

 

Balmy Bento Lip Balm + Scrub – The upper portion of this cute product is a very moisturizing lip balm that smells like coconut. The texture is so light, non-sticky, and it keeps the lips hydrated without chapping. The bottom part is a lip scrub that smells like fresh pineapples. It is SO good and it is so exfoliating without being too harsh on the lips. The combination of coconut and pineapple in this fun balm+scrub product is so irresistible and so addicting. I highly recommend this.

Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio in Alotta Colada – This sunkissed neutral-tone eyeshadow trio with coconut scent is one of the most delightful eyeshadows I’ve ever tried. I love a good quality eyeshadow with a yummy scent but they’re usually hard to come by. The shades of this cute stackable compact are something I would definitely wear every day and even more so now in this pandemic where we’re all about “the eyes”. I find that all of the shades are so creamy and so easy to apply or blend on the lids, plus, you can layer them easily. I appreciate that the shades are in neutral tone which can definitely work for any complexion.

Kaja Beauty Mist Me Hydrating Face Mist

 

Mist Me Hydrating Face Mist – This face mist is making me wish for sunshine on a beach while sipping Piña Colada, lol. You can tell I badly need a vacay, but don’t we all, right? This mist is probably the next best thing to that dreamy vacay I’m wishing to have. I love the yummy scent of this, which is kinda like having a spritz of pineapple and coco juice on your face. This hydrates my face without that sticky feeling and it helps to prevent dry Autumn skin especially if you apply this regularly. I have yet to test and see if this works really well on setting my makeup. I will update y’all soon.

 

Kaja Beauty Piña Colada Collection review

I love the delicious scent and I love the quality of this makeup collection. I’m rating each of them as 5 stars, especially in terms of packaging and overall design.

Chanel Fall-Winter 2020 Beauty Favorites

Chanel Fall Winter 2020 Makeup

 

Hello everybody! Are you enjoying this beautiful Autumn season? Any plans for a gorgeous Fall decor? Or have you been carving that pumpkin already?

This Fall is always an exciting time for me because as always, Chanel’s Winter/Fall makeup releases are giving me life. As always, their products are so exciting that I can’t wait to rock some of their deep red lip colors and bold dramatic eyeshadows along with my monochromatic goth (lol) Fall/Winter outfits. Fall, definitely, is such a very interesting and inspirational season for me.

For my favorites this season, I’ve added a product that wasn’t necessarily released this season but was actually released early this year. Also, I’ve added a repeat favorite of mine for the nails.

 

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Fusion Matte Liquid Lip Color in Ambiguïté

 

Rouge Allure Ink Fusion Matte Liquid Lip Color in Ambiguïté – I love Chanel’s Rouge Allure Ink Fusion because the formula is just so good and is not patchy compared to the Rouge Allure Ink. Also, this isn’t drying and is very comfortable on the lips. The Ambiguïté shade, which is a medium mauvy brown is my favorite this season because it complements my skintone very well. I will be posting some of my favorite Rouge Allure Ink & Ink Fusion shades very soon. So, stay tuned for that.

Les 4 Ombres Multi-effect Quadra Eyeshadow Candeur Et Provocation – I picked this eyeshadow over the Candeur Et Seduction because this isn’t too heavy on “reds”. The Candeur Et Seduction quad seems a little too much for me and I don’t think I could pull off that much reddish tones on my lids. The shades are really vivid and beautiful though. This Candeur Et Provocation is enough to give you that eye drama because it borders on being earthy, natural, and rose-like. It’s the perfect eyeshadow quad to transition to this Fall’s warm and spice-like eye makeup tones.

Le Gel Coat Longwear Top Coat – This isn’t really a Fall release, but a repeat love for me. I’m a big fan of this fast-drying gel top coat because this makes my nail polish last longer than the usual gel top coats. Also, this minimizes any color chipping issues after days of wearing any gel nail color.

 

Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Color in Interdit

 

Le Vernis Longwear Nail Color in Interdit – My Fall vibe won’t be complete without another wine-colored nail polish. This very deep red and black-mixed shade is so pretty and so irresistible even though it’s quite dupable. I’m a sucker for this type of shade and I won’t mind hoarding this color every Fall and Winter.

 

Chanel Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops

 

Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops – Released earlier this year and was sold out for some time, I swear I’ve been dying to get my hands on this. Guess what, this liquid, rosy, and pearly iridescent highlighter is just so pretty and so perfect for an everyday natural glow. I find that this is quite hard to photograph indoor because this tends to blend on my skin, but whenever I’m outside, this really shines through. I totally love the gorgeous packaging and the practical pump that releases just enough product to cover the whole face. Speaking of face, this can be worn alone, mixed with your favorite moisturizer, or can be blended with your foundation of choice. This is so versatile and I highly recommend that you try this one asap.

Here’s a final look at the Le Blanc highlighter swatched all over my hand.

Those are my faves for this Fall/Winter Chanel beauty releases. I can’t wait for next year’s Spring/Summer products. What are your favorite makeup products this Fall?
