L.A Color Pigment Powder Review & L.A Girl Gel Nail Polish Review 

Hey Beauties, 

The other day was my Birthday, woohoo! I’m finally 29!! Lol who gets happy for turning one year older ME! Soooo.. anyway I went into these cute store called Agaci in the Florida Mall, and they had some cute things there I picked up a cute workout outfit and some little makeup goodies they had for dirt cheap. I happened to stumble upon these great things here. These L.A Color Iced Pigment Powders were cheap my kinda price when looking for affordable makeup. I’m so happy I got to snatch these up cause there so hard to find in my area. 

I got 3 of them. All for $2.90 each. That’s a steal. They only had these colors. Unfortunately they were all out of the really pretty bright colored ones. I would’ve got them all. I also snagged this really pretty lilac Gel-Like polish from L.A Girl. I got this polish for $1.99. Which is also a steal because sometimes nail polish can be so expensive. If you know me I absolutely love purple. Any shades, I’m love them all! 

For the L.A Color Pigment Powder I chose these colors.

  • Foiled- A silver/Chrome Pigment  with a light reflective finish. 
  • Toasted- A Copper/Brown Pigment with A shimmer Finish.
  • Flash- A yellow/white Pigment with shimmery reflective finish. 


Swatches With Brightness On – Flash • Toasted • Foiled

With Flash On – Flash • Toasted • Foiled

As you can see these Eyeshadow Colors are very pigmented. When swatching them the little jars them come in were a bit difficult to swift some of the product out because they have small holes. But after a few shakes it came out easily. 

Small holes for easy use and less product waste.

I really love the feel of the product and how creamy and smooth these glided on my arm to swatch. They don’t feel gritty and are very bright and shimmery which I love. They also didn’t smudge on my arm or come off even when wiping them to add more of the pigments. I also love that there single shadows instead of a big palette which is great for adding to your makeup make for a quick touch up or for traveling as there size is only 0.11oz (3G). 

Next up is the L.A Color Gel Extreme Shine Gel-Like Polish. I got this in the color Temptation. This comes in a 0.47oz (14ml) bottle, And has a wide brush for quicker mani- touch ups and dries very clean. 

I love this color and the bottle shape making it easier to hold and the bristles on the nail polish brush can distribute more of the polish making it easier to polish your entire nail without having to dip the brush in more then once. I love this brand not only for there quality nail polish but it’s reasonably priced and lasts longer then some of these expensive polish’s plus you don’t need a UV light leaving your nails looking flawlessly shiny.

April Skin White Cushion Foundation Review 

I received this for free in exchange for a review. All opinions and photos are my own. 

Hey Beauties,

Today’s post is on the April Skin White Cushion Foundation. This foundation is a Cushion Foundation that comes in a compact White round case, Holding 15g of Foundation in a sponge. This foundation comes with a small mirror which is handy for on the go application. I loved the texture. When applied to my skin. It didn’t feel too thick or watery. It comes with a small round sponge applicator, which was very soft and actually usable to apply with.


I loved the size of the sponge and the way it has a small handle for easy handling. You only need a small amount of foundation as too much can make your skin look bland and white. I love how this has SPF50+ for added protection from the sun’s rays. When using this you always have to make sure you close the foundation cover tightly as it will try Up if left opened. 

With a smooth texture, soft on my skin and medium coverage this is great for a quick makeup look or for days when you don’t want to be too glammed up but need some coverage on your blemishes or tired looking eyes. This product is from a Korean beauty line and can be found at April Skin for $28 U.S dollars because the product is from a Korean site, the site is in the Korean languages and will need to be translated if purchased.

Elizavecca Power Ringer Face Masks Review

Hey beauty’s today’s review is on these amazing masks I got from 08L this company is based all on Japanese and Korean beauty. I was chosen to do this campaign and receive these for free in exchange for a review. These 10 masks are from a brand called Elizavecca. Each one of these masks has a different type of ingredient all helping your skin be more nourished and well hydrated and Cleansed. 

I love the packaging and how it comes in different colors each one smelling different. This mask is to be used on a clean face. I use this preferably at night before I go to bed. I wash my face with hot water and clean off any excess makeup or oils from the weather and sweat during the day. Having clean pores and all the extra gunk off helps the ingredients in these masks seep into your skin giving it a natural glow. 


I left this on for about 15minutes. The mask felt cool with a gel like cream on the entire thing. I opened it up and applied it onto my face making sure it covers my important areas well. The mask I used was the Power Ringer Aqua Deep Face Mask. This make hydrates, cool and firms the skin leaving a pleasant scent behind and leaving your skin ultra smooth and supple. When I rinsed it off my skin was super soft and felt cool and tightened. Like a face lift, without breaking the bank. 


Left-Right [Colligen Deep,Milk Deep,Red Gingsenf Deep]


Left-Right [Fruits Deep,Vita Deep,EGF Deep]


Left-Right [Tea Tree Deep, Cantella Asiatica Deep,Honey Deep]

As you can see each one of these has some power packed ingredient. I love how there ingredients aren’t fake or harmful for your face. I definitely would recommend this product to all face mask lovers. Especially at the price there sold at Amazon they have a bundle for a great price. You guys should check them out. I know I will be buying more of these and other face masks because now I am officially hooked. 

What kind of Face Mask do you use ? 


Until Next time..

Klean Color Master Strokes Long Wear Candy Color Eyeshadow Sticks Review

Hey beauty’s 

Today’s post is all on these super cute and bright colored Klean Color Candy Colored Eyeshadow Sticks I recently purchased. When I’m looking for a budget friendly makeup brand I look for quality over quantity. This brand gives me the high end look without breaking the bank. The pigmentation in these Eyeshadow Sticks are bright and creamy when swatched but lacked color payoff. 

I definitely did want to try using these in a look but when I started to apply them they looked dull and not very pleasing on my eyes. I’m very disappointed because I really wanted to use them. I will try them out possibly with primer and see if it helps. Or maybe using a white color as my base. Overall I love this product for the color choices, color names and product look. But there formula needs to get fixed or redone. I would give this product a 6/10.

Coral Reef from swimming without the manual nominated me for this awesome award. Thank you for nominating me for this award. Being a mommy like her and raising two girls isn't always easy but she makes it fun and always does her best to rise to the top. Way to go mommy coral! ☺️ I also love the fact that she's named her kids in her blog after sealife. That's very creative and fun. Go check her blog out guys.

1. DONE

2. This is it. 

My blog first started out as a mommy blog. I always loved posting about my kids adventures but truly it became too much for me to post pictures and stuff about them on the internet which kind of got me concerned so I then switched it to my makeup page. I do have another blog which is about my life and occasional poetry and things I've been through you can check it out here Unapologetic Mama. Blogging is always something I loved doing it's been about 10years since I started blogging on tumblr then switched to WordPress for a little more professional writing website. 

My first piece of advise to anyone who will start blogging is, be yourself. Your blog expresses what you are and who you are. It doesn't always have to have the best grammar or the fanciest theme. Make it unique and stand out. Have fun with it.

My second piece of advise is don't ever let anyone stop you from achieving your goals doesn't matter your age or how it's going to take. Strive to make the best out of any situation. 

I nominate: who ever feels like doing this tag.
