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!

HASK Chia Seed Oil Volumizing Collection | Shampoo + Conditioner | Review

Having a healthy hair is so important.  I am not regular on my hair care routines and I see my hair getting worse and worse but thankfully because of HASK my hair looks quite healthy with shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioner.  I love HASK haircare range and I have used their SuperFruit Healthy Hair collection earlier and I just love it and used that religiously until I ran out of it . I was way too excited to when I got this CHIA from HASK.

Who doesn’t love Chia Seeds in their diet and smoothies? Well, I do!! They are so nutritious and full of anti-oxidants and so yummy. Like your body needs rich nutrients, hair also requires the same amount of care. This was the first time me trying a shampoo with chia. I was super excited to try and see how it works for me.

HASK Shampoo:

The texture is thick and pearly white and it lathers really well. It takes all the greasy residue and oiliness from my hair. The fragrance is so soothing and calming. Feels so natural fragrance and I love it. One thing I noticed with this was that my hair felt super smooth, soft and frizz free. I have wavy and frizzy hair and this shampoo made my hair look healthy and bouncy. I have been using this shampoo since the time I have got and I am already running out of it. I would definitely purchase this. That much I love this!!

HASK Conditioner:

I always tend to apply conditioner on my ends because they are very dry and I did the same with this conditioner. The texture is thick and white and fragrance is pretty much similar to the shampoo. It has a very natural soothing fragrance. After shampooing, I applied this conditioner and left for about 5 mins and rinsed well. My hair felt so soft and once they dried I could see how bouncy and voluminous my hair looks. I was thrilled by the results at my first time use itself. I absolutely love this and have been using this ever since I got it.

HASK has some really great products and this is one of them. I highly recommend this to all hair types. They do what they state and its very affordable. My hair looks so healthy and smooth. I love when my hair feels this way.  A good hair can instantly increase your self-confidence. Overall, I love this combo and it does wonderful job and how cute is the bag in which the products come 🙂

Anastasia Beverly Hills In Ashton | Review

You can never have too many lipsticks PERIOD J I am officially a liquid lipstick addict and recently I got this liquid lipstick from Anastasia Beverley Hills. I was so confused in trying their lipstick because I read so many places that their formula is super drying and not very comfortable but in Spring 2016 they reformulated and launched some new shades and ASHTON was one of their Spring 2016 collection. I read good reviews of their new formula so finally I got myself this gorgeous shade.

ASHTON is mid tone chestnut brown with a matte finish and this shade has been my favorite lately. This is the perfect brown/nude shade which will look flattering on all skin types. Their formula is moussey and glides on very easily and in one swipe you get a neat opaque finish with full coverage. The texture is just so velvety and this lipstick is transfer proof. It sets into flat matte finish within few seconds of application. It’s not at all drying whatsoever but however I always recommend to exfoliate your lips or apply a lip balm before applying any liquid lipstick. The lipstick stays good for more than 6 hours without fading even after eating and drinking. After 6 hours it starts fading a little so might need a retouch but otherwise this lipstick stays intact and I was totally surprised and impressed at its lasting power.

I have so many other liquid lipstick from other brands and this one from ABH is totally worth the money. The lipstick can be little pricier but worth every single penny. The packaging is just like any other liquid lipstick with a clear tube and an applicator. However I love the applicator of this particular lipstick as the wand is not too big and it’s a perfect size. I have other liquid lipstick where the wand is little too long and might get difficult it applying.

If you are crazy for liquid lipstick like me then you should definitely pick up this one and I am pretty sure none will regret this. I adore this lipstick and shade and I truly believe its universal nude shade which will look fabulous on every skin tone.

Have you used ABH liquid lipstick before? Which is your favorite liquid lipstick? I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks for reading 🙂

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara- Worth the hype?

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I am a huge fan of mascara and I use almost every single day because I simply don’t prefer the hassle of applying of false lashes. Applying false lashes is a real struggle!! Isn’t? Who can relate? So, I always look out for mascara which gives voluminous and fuller looking lashes and one of my favorite is this Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

I got this in deluxe size along with Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer as I was not sure how this mascara would work for me and I was not ready to splurge on mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

This is not waterproof mascara and doesn’t claim to be so people who want waterproof mascara this one are not for you. Prior to applying mascara, I always curl up my lashes. There are days when I don’t apply mascara but still curl my lashes to give curled and more open lashes. So, I highly suggest curling your lashes first. The formula of this mascara is not so thin nor thick so there are no clumps. I like the wand size which is not bulky or sleek.  During application it doesn’t get on your eyelids or on you’re under eye area while applying on lower lashes. With 1 coat it gives very nice natural looking lashes and at 2 and 3 coats it gives pretty intense dramatic looking effect with no smudging or clumps. However, with more than 3 coats your lashes might like a spider web and might get clumped. I love the packaging. It sturdy and comes in a very pretty pink color.

Mascara is something you need to change every 3-4 months so I would suggest to get deluxe size mascara instead of wasting the product or using an expired product. I would highly suggest this mascara to everyone who want to give their lashes curled and voluminous effect and its totally worth the hype product.

NYX Liquid Crystal Liner In Crystal Silk | Review

NYX Crystal Glitter Liner

Lately I have been obsessed with glitters and love using them whenever I can. I am just a beginner when it comes to makeup and I dint want to spend bucks on glitter liners. I heard so many people rave about UD heavy metal liquid glitter liners but $20 for glitter liner? Nah! So, I found this NYX Crystal glitter liners at my nearest Ulta and gave it a try since they are so inexpensive and glad I did!!

I got NYX Crystal Glitter Liner in the shade Crystal Silk which is a nice light gold sparkly color which adds a bling to your eye. The application is super easy and goes on smoothly unlike other glitter liners which gets too dry while applying and difficult to work with. This liner goes smoothly and dries up in couple of minutes. I wait for additional few minutes just to be sure that it’s completely dry so that it doesn’t gets messed up. You can use this as a liner or just add on your eyelids for that entire glitter eye look as its not messy while loose glitters can be hard to work with at times. You can build the coats on how intense you like or just leave with one coat which is pretty pigmented for a drugstore brand. The Packaging looks so beautiful and comes in tube with a black cap and applicator is easy to work.

I highly recommend to you all who are into glitter liners and want to try something from drugstore.
