Influenster Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder #VoxBox

I was so excited with I received this beautiful loose powder from Laura Mercier to try out as I have seen so many people literally raves about this powder. I have been testing this out for almost two weeks now and I already declare this as my favorite powder ever I used. I just cannot stop using this and this has been my go to powder ever since I started using this.

The texture of this powder is so silky, smooth and velvety as it’s finely milled loose powder that just disappears in skin. It keeps my makeup in place throughout the day and also helps minimize oiliness around T-Zone and forehead. It also helps in avoiding the creasing for concealers under eyes. I like to apply my concealer first and just set it with this powder and brush off excess. It looks so natural as the texture feels so feathery and lightweight.  I have this in the shade translucent and barely there is any fragrance in it.  I like to use a tapered brush to apply this powder. Its perfect size and applies right amount. My face looked just as good 9 hours later. I was totally impressed. It contains French “cashmere” talc and a unique light-reflecting ingredient that creates a “soft-focus” appearance for fine lines and imperfections. This gives you a natural sheer look without making you look heavy or cakey.

The powder packaging comes in a plastic container with a brown glossy lid. It looks timeless and classy. It does come with a sifter on top so that you can control how much product you want to use. This powder comes with a Velour Puff from Laura Mercier.

This powder applies beautifully, its long wearing, doesn’t settle into fine lines and pores. I highly recommend it and I guess there is a reason why every beauty guru and beauty magazine is raving about it!

Thank you for taking your time to read. If you are considering a new setting powder, Laura Mercier makes a fantastic one! Have a sweet and wonderful day!

Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set

As I have mentioned earlier that I’m a big fan of liquid lipsticks and I want to try most of the liquid lipstick available in the market, so I’m stocking up slowly and increasing ,u liquid lipostcik collection. Couple of month’s back I got this beautiful set by Huda Beauty from Sephora. It was one of the holiday gift set.This contains a full size lip contour pencil in the shade TRENDSETTER, two deluxe size liquid lipstick in the shade TRENDSETTER and BOMBSHELL. This is a beautiful nude set and I’m just crushing on these. Ever since I got them I have been using and totally love it.

TRENDSETTER (Lip pencil & liquid lipstick) is a gorgeous nude/brown shade which will look flattering on all skin tones but will look different on every skin tone. I love how it looks on my skin and it’s my favorite shade. BOMBSHELL is a subtle pink nude shade which dint suit on my medium skin but with a darker lip liner it works great and also I like to use on top on my dark shades to create the ombre effect.

The formula of the liquid lipsticks are very creamy, not runny nor thick so glides on pretty easily and within few seconds it dries out completely matte. It has great lasting results and stays put for more than 7-8 hours with eating and its transfer proof. It does not settle into the lines and doesn’t feel dry or patchy hence it’s so comfortable to wear. It just feels like there is nothing on my lips too heavy or drying. I always recommend exfoliating or apply a lip balm prior to applying liquid lipstick to prevent any cracking or settling into lines throughout the day.

I use the lip contour pencil with these liquid lipsticks and other nude liquid lipsticks. Also I just like to use this lip pencil on my entire lips. The formula of this lip contour pencil is so creamy and velvety and gives such an opaque finish with a matte look.  Although I love the lip pencil and I wouldn’t pay the full price and but a lip pencil so this set was a great deal.

The packaging of liquid lipsticks comes in a frosted tube like which shows the color of the lipsticks and has vanilla fragrance. I highly recommend these lipsticks. They last all day long and there are so many shades to choose. The mini sets are always great way to try high end lipsticks. Although this limited edition set is sold out.Huda Beauty has now come up with 3 different mini sets with 4 lipsticks in each set so look out for that.

Have you ever used Huda Beauty Lipsticks? Which is your favorite? Thanks for reading!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette | Review

I generally don’t stock many eye shadow palettes as I am not a makeup artist and don’t do heavy eye makeup on everyday basis and I have couple of great palettes which are my personal favorite and I use them every time and love them. You can read about them here and here. When I read and saw so much hype about Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette I was not convinced to get due to price and color range because I have similar shades from other palettes. But during the end of the year when Sephora sent me a $20 coupon I knew what I had to purchase and hence got this palette. This palette is originally priced at $42 but I got it for $22.

I am probably the last one to get this palette and now I know why people kept talking about it so much. This palette has beautiful shade selection which will suit all skin tones especially medium skin tones since it has some wonderful transition shade. The palette has mix of metallic and matte shades but more of matte. The texture is so smooth and buttery. It blends into skin so effortlessly and it has very high pigmentation. I recommend dabbing off excess while taking the eyeshadow but even if you end up applying more eyeshadow blending can be so easy and gives a smooth finish. There are beautiful shades and so many looks can be created using this palette, however I wish there was a matte black in this palette.

The packaging comes in a sturdy cardboard box and lid is like mauve pink color with velvet finish. The packaging look super cute but it can look dirty after sometime but that doesn’t matter since the inside stuff is to die for!! The palette comes with a double sided brush. Not a big fan of the brush though !!

You get 14 shades in total.

Tempera is a vanilla shade with a matte finish

Golden Ochre is an earthy yellow with a matte finish

Vermeer is an iridescent shell with a metallic finish

Buon Fresco is an antique lavender with an matte finish

Antique Bronze is a metallic bronze with a satin finish

Love Letter is a raspberry with a matte finish

Cyprus Umber is a coffee shade

Raw Sienna is a neutral amber with a matte finish

Burnt Orange is a deep orange with a matte finish

Primavera is a shimmery gold with a matte finish

Red Ochre is a sienna with a matte finish

Venetian Red is a crimson with a matte finish

Warm Taupe is an earthy gray with matte finish

Realgar is an orange brick with a matte finish.

I know by now every single person own this but still I highly recommend this palette to everyone who are still considering to buy. This is a great buy and totally worth the money.
