Hello. How are you all? I can’t believe it’s been more than a month since the lockdown. Entering the fifth week of social distancing is starting to feel like a drag. I miss a lot of things and I’m sure you miss a lot of stuff too. I still hope that this is all going to be over soon but in the meantime, let’s put on some makeup and pretend like we’re going somewhere nice and fun 😀. Speaking of makeup, I have a few suggestions from Kaja Beauty which you may want to look into right now because Sephora is having a Spring Sale Event. Just use the code SPRINGSAVE.
There are a lot of Kaja Beauty products that I love. From their Stamp Wing Eyeliner (reviewed HERE) down to their Stamp Blushes (swatched HERE), Kaja is a brand that won’t disappoint and they keep having exciting new releases that will for sure make you curious. I had the opportunity to try their Mochi Pop Blushes, Mousse Primer, and their Cat Nap Under Eye Brightener, among other things. So, check out what I think about these products below.
Mochi Pop Bouncy Blush (0.15 oz: 19 USD) – This is probably one of the best cream-to-powder bouncy blushes I’ve ever tried. Yes, the texture of this is really soft and totally bouncy to the touch, and most all, each compact is loaded with very pigmented shades that are very easy to blend with just the finger. Apart from the cute packaging, each blush shade is long-wearing and has subtle shimmers that add a slight dimension to the face especially during this bright season.
01 Aura – peach pink with golden shimmer
02 Atmosphere – muted neutral dusty rose with subtle shimmer
03 Spoils of Mars – fuchsia rose with subtle shimmer
Dream Puff Radiant Mousse Primer (1.94 oz: 19 USD) – This light and airy mousse primer which comes in only one shade (Peach Glow, a universal shimmering golden peach) gives a lit-from-within look or effect. This has Marshmallow Root Extract and Hyaluronic Acid that primes the skin and settles with a slight shimmery finish that can add radiance after every foundation. I really like this a lot especially when you want to add a touch of healthy-looking glow on the face. The only caveat is the dispenser which tends to release too much of the product. Other than that, this also blurs the pores and preps the skin for a nice canvas.
Cat Nap Under Eye Brightener (0.19 oz: 19 USD) – I was really curious about this undereye brightener. I wasn’t sure if this was going to conceal well or if this was just going to add some radiance along the undereye, or both. This also comes in one tone, which is quite peachy and has a radiant finish. I would describe this product as quite similar (or perhaps even better) than the Tatcha Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminator (seen HERE) which truly brightens the undereyes and gives you that fully wide-awake hydrated look but this won’t totally hide the dark circles well on its own. You may wear this alone for a naturally bright undereye, but you could also layer this with a concealer to totally hide the dark circles.
Bottom line, I love all these Kaja goodies especially now that we’re into sporting the natural look. The Mochi Pop Blushes are great for showcasing the natural curves of our cheeks, the Cat Nap Under Eye Brightener is also good for looking like we’ve been sleeping just fine 😀, and the Mousse Primer is perfect for that radiant look effect during this quarantine-era.
Stay beautiful and healthy.
