Empties April 2018

I really like the idea of sharing empties and all these basket/pan projects where you actually use the whole product to understand if it really works for you and is worth repurchasing or not, as in some cases, some products don’t give an instant result and you have to be patient. So here is my first time sharing my empties.

sunkissedblush-empties-1 (4 of 4)

SK-II R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream is one of the best moisturizers I’ve ever tried. I got a sample for points at Sephora and plan to purchase the full size. As an option, there is also SK-II Pitera Welcome Set that has an Essence and a Toner for less.

Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm is the product I have been using for years and haven’t really found anything better so far! I also have devoted a detailed blog post about this product and its active ingredient.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 40 is a nice sunscreen that doesn’t clog pores or give a strange bitter taste in your mouth after applying it on your face (some sunscreens do that and I don’t know why yet). However, I couldn’t use the tube completely as the cream gone bad – it smells like a bad fish now. There is also a new Ultra Repair® Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 that I plan to try this year. I believe the best shade for me is Light.

EVIAN Brumisateur® Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray Travel Duo seemed like a nice idea as a face mist, since it’s only clean water in a bottle, but after finishing the first bottle ( it comes in a pack of 2), I can’t say I’m really excited about the purchase. I’m still longing to Caudalie Facial Mist as it smells like an expensive spa treatment.

sunkissedblush-empties-1 (1 of 4)

Living Proof Full Shampoo is my another staple! it actually replaced the Morrocanoil Extra Volume Shampoo that I’ve been using for a couple of years. Here is a separate post about the Living Proof Shampoo and why I really love it so much.

Clinique Deep Comfort Body Wash is indeed a nice body wash for dry skin, but I prefer more natural ingredients (and aromatherapy!) so that I’m not sure if I repurchase it.

[The Face Shop] Essential Damage Care Dual Deep Treatment is a must-have hair care mask. I’ve already mentioned it in my reviews, and it is so good that I’ll keep repurchasing it.

sunkissedblush-empties-1 (2 of 4)

It Cosmetics Brush Bath Purifying Brush Cleaner is exclusively sold at Ulta. It’s a nice solution for cleaning between washing the brushes and has a natural ingredient list. For some reason, it works better with synthetic brushes. I’m exploring other products at the moment so that I don’t plan to repurchase it in the nearest future.

CURAPROX Black Is White Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste Set is another amazing product that is in my vanity for at least couple of years. So far, it’s the best whitening toothpaste I’ve tried so far! It has activated charcoal as the active ingredient. Plus, Curaprox toothpastes keep my teeth cavity free and my dentist appointments to check-ups – before, I had to pop into dentist’s office at least every 2 months.

sunkissedblush-empties-1 (3 of 4)

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Eau De Parfum is my all-time favorite perfume, it reminds me of sunny lazy days on a beach. It works for me throughout the year, it makes me feel so “sun-kissed” all the time. The Soleil Blanc collection now also has a 30ML version as well as new Eau De Soleil.

Honestly, these “empties” and “pan/basket” projects give such a satisfaction and enjoyment of using any of the particular product you like since you are actually using it instead of letting it sit on a shelf “for a special occasion”.

Best 20 Products to Get at Sephora Spring Bonus Event

Hello, my dears!

Let’s be honest: good makeup and skin care are usually pricey and from my personal experience, this statement work in 98% of the time.

And I’m very excited to know and share with you that Sephora Spring Bonus Event is starting right now, which means it’s discount time!

While there is a lot you can consider buying during this event, I’d try to narrow down the list of things I’m getting for myself OR have already tried and they are indeed worth any penny.

For me, it’s a perfect time to stock up, before the next bonus event (read real discounts) is expected in late November.

What should you know about this event

What should you buy during this event?

If you think strategically, as I do, think of products of high/daily usage or those that have short shelf life. I’ll feature the products that I’ve tried and loved! – one item per a type of product. I shared my thoughts on this products in my stories on Instagram – now in my Highlights! Feel free to check it out for more details!

Under this category, I would mention several products:

  1. Sheet Masks
  2. Beautyblenders
  3. Brushes for Clarisonic
  4. Blotting Papers
  5. Exfoliating Pads
  6. Tools Cleaners

Featured Products:

ESTEE LAUDER

Advance Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask, pack of 4, $80 (Buy Now)

ESTEE_LAUDER_Advance_Night_Repair_Concentrated_Recovery_PowerFoil_Mask

This foil mask is a 10-minute step in getting instantly glowing and youthful skin that lasts for several days! *tested on myself* Buying a pack of 4 is the best investment advice I would give to you since it’s $25 per a separate mask! Plus, discounts are just in time!

BEAUTYBLENDER

Two.BB.Clean, $45  (Buy Now)

BEAUTYBLENDER_Two.BB.Clean

With the total value of $58, this is another value set I would recommend for you. Taking into consideration that you need to change your beauty blender every 3 to 6 months, this kit will last you for a year! PLUS it comes with cleansing solutions that will put another “tick” on our list.

CLARISONIC

The Essentials Set, $79 (Buy Now)

CLARISONIC_The_Essentials_Set

If you use Clarisonic for cleansing, this is another amazing value kit with the total value of $108 will last you at least for a year! You can mix and match different heads for different need. I got a similar one during winter event, and still enjoy them!

TATCHA

Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers, $12 (Buy Now)

TATCHA _Aburatorigami_Japanese_Blotting_Papers

The top-rated blotting papers made of 100 percent natural abaca leaf and gold flakes absorb excess oil without disturbing makeup for petal fresh skin anytime, anywhere. *puts into the cart*

NEOGEN DERMOTOLOGY

Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling – Lemon, $27 (Buy Now)
NEOGEN_DERMOTOLOGY_ Bio-Peel_Gauze_Peeling_Lemon

K-beauty Innovative way to exfoliate your skin both manually and chemically with these 30 gauze pads that gently remove dead skin.  The formula includes AHA chemical exfoliant that deeply penetrates to dissolve dirt and oil in the skin and the vitamin C (lemon extract) for skin brightening benefits.

SEPHORA COLLECTION

The Cleanse: Daily Brush Cleaner, $15 (Buy Now)

SEPHORA_COLLECTION _The_Cleanse_Daily_Brush_Cleaner

To maintain the life of your tools (brushes and sponges) and prevent bacteria from spreading you need to clean your brushes after each use. While it sounds troublesome to wash them after each time( and which is not good for the brushes as well) I recommend using sprays. At Sephora, you can find several types of sprays. I especially like the quick-dry formula of this alcohol-free cleaner as it reduces the downtime and I can use my brushes in a matter of minutes! Plus, the formula is very mild and natural and suitable for sensitive skin.

 SKIN CARE

In this section, I’d like to share some products that yield WOW results – tested on myself. Again, speaking of strategical shopping, you would definitely need new skin care products until the next big event and discounts are the real pay off for that. Plus, we all deserve it some at-home spa time.

SK-II

Pitera Welcome Kit, $110 (Buy Now)

SKII _Pitera_Welcome_Kit

Do not get scared of this price tag! I tried face cream and the essence and it literally transformed my skin! You get instant glow, hydration, softness and overall my skin looked so refreshed I even had a youthful blush like I spent a good amount of time outdoors. I believe that the toner will only enhance the effect of these two products. By the way, when you layer them, they absorb so fast that it can easily be used under makeup! And, did I mentioned that the total value is $156?

SUNDAY RILEY

Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit, $85 (Buy Now)

SUNDAY_RILEY_Power_Couple_Duo_Total_Transformation_KitAnother value set (total value $105) that you want to have! I got this set last week during the Rouge Early Access and this is another power couple that works wonders overnight! The Good Genes contain lactic acid and the Luna Sleeping Oil has retinol inside. Together, they contribute to even, glowing, hydrated and smooth complexion. While you can feel changes overnight, give these two guys another 3-4 weeks – rumors say the effect builds up! I have special feelings for Sunday Riley, I tried 5 of their products and they are all amazing!

Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser, $45 (Buy Now)

sunday-riley-ceramic-slip-clay-cleanser

Speaking of Sunday Riley, I also need to mention this cleanser. I can’t remember any other product that would make me feel this clean and soft at the same time. Plus, my pores are instantly visibly smaller.

LA MER

The Eye Concentrate, $205 (Buy Now)

LA_MER _The_Eye_Concentrate

Another skin care product that worth every penny – the eye concentrate from La Mer. Again, I bought it during winter sales and still have some in the jar! Little goes a long way while it is indeed one of those eye creams that erase dark circles like you had a good sleep yesterday and a day before, and every single day. It works even better when used with the small roller that comes in a pack.

LANEIGE

Lip Sleeping Mask, $20 (Buy Now)

laneige_lip_sleeping_maskThis soft and nourishing lip mask just melts on my lips! I just got it and I love it a lot. I wake up with lips prepped for the lipstick, how about that, ladies?

KIEHL’S SINCE 1851

Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask, $45 (Buy Now)

KIEHL'S_SINCE_1851 _Calendula_Aloe_Soothing_Hydration_Mask

Whenever something goes south, this is the mask that restores my skin. It soothes and provides hydration. Also, I love how it smells, it is so relaxing!

MAKEUP

And for sure, there will be luxury makeup products that you would want to treat yourself with.

I stumbled on selecting the one and only eye shadow pallet so that I’m going to share two here.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS

Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette, $42 (Buy Now)

ANASTASIA_BEVERLY_HILLS _Soft_Glam_Eyeshadow_Palette

The recent and already very popular and highly rated eyeshadow pallet from ABH. It is perfect for day and night, it has matte and shimmer eye shadows and the color selection is just fantastic for the spring season. The pallet comes with a two-end brush and a mirror.

PAT MCGRATH LABS 

MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Eyeshadow Palette, $55 (Buy Now)pat_mcgrath_labs_MTHRSHP_Sublime_Bronze_Ambition_Eyeshadow_Palette

I have to admit, I had a crush on Mothership Eyeshadow Pallets when they just got released, but it was a way too expensive for me – $125 per pallet. Hopefully,  smaller versions of those pallets have been released for a more of “affordable” pricing – $55 per pallet. If you have ever swatched those pigmented eyeshadows at Sephora, you will never be able to skip on them.

MatteTrance™ Lipstick, $38 (Buy Now)

pat_mcgrath_labs_mattetrance_elson

This is the most moisturizing matte lipstick I’ve ever tried in my life. I have also been talking about this lipstick in my Youtube video – the pigment and the formula are just fantastic. These lipsticks flew so fast it was hard to get the shades that I wanted, hopefully, all shades are available for sale right now, but I think, not for so long.

TOM FORD 

Boys & Girls Lip Color, $36 (Buy Now)

tom_ford_girls_nina

If you prefer sheerer lipstick, think of Tom Ford Boys&Girls Collection. While it gets so complicated to chose only 1 shade out of 100 ( because you want all of it) you can narrow your search with “Girls” only – the white body lipsticks are definitely sheerer compared to “Boys”. The best part about this line is the price: $36 for a smaller TF lipstick versus $54 for the regular collection.

DIOR

Capture Totale Dreamskin Perfect Skin Cushion Broad Spectrum SPF 50, $82 (Buy Now)

Dior_Dream_Skin.png

This product is on my wishlist ( read “cart” now) for several reasons:

  1. Dior has amazing skin care products. I tried one serum on my hand at the store, and I swear, later that day I noticed that the patch of skin looked so much better that the same spot on my other hand.
  2. It has SPF 50 in it. As the warmer season is approaching, sunscreen is very important to consider in your daily routine
  3. and finally, it comes with one refill, and you can always get another one later for half price.

Hair Care

Supersonic Mother’s Day Gift Red Edition, $399 (Buy Now)

If you ever dreamed to get this amazing hair dryer from Dyson (still in my wishlist) it is time to get it with the discount provided! Plus, now it comes with beautiful in red with matching case!

dyson_hair_dryer

Fragrances

I can’t decide between these two, so that I highlight two fragrances in this post.

VIKTOR & ROLF

Flowerbomb, 1 oz, $85, (Buy Now)

viktor_rolf_flowerbomb

The Flowerbomb from V&R is perfect for spring. It’s hard for me to describe the scent, but it feels like it’s no longer winter, but still, summer is yet to come.

TOM FORD 

Soleil Blanc, 1 oz, $145 (Buy Now)

soleil_blanc_tom_ford

This fragrance is “forever summer” for me. It just makes my day brighter whenever I use it and reminds of my sunny vacation days by the sea. The best part of it is that now it comes in a smaller size and therefore is for a more “affordable” price. Plus, don’t forget about discounts!

 

This is quite an extensive list! I know that most of the products are from the “luxury line”, but let’s all agree that we are worth it. PLUS, each of these products qualifies for discounts, so if you ever doubted about expensive miracle products, now is the perfect timing!

Once again, I put all my thoughts and knowledge in this post. Everything here comes from my honest opinion and personal experience. I hope you will find this blog post helpful.

I would remind you to use the codes at the checkouts as they are not added automatically.

If you are ready to purchase something from the list, please use the Buy Now link – this is the way you can thank me without paying any extra!

Pantone Color of the Year 2018 Inspired Make Up For Everyday Look

Hello, my beauties!

Since Pantone, the Global Color Authority, announced Ultra Violet as a Color of 2018, this color is gaining more popularity in fashion and beauty.

FHIP110COY-pantone-fashion-home-interiors-tpg-limited-edition-color-of-the-year-2018-color-fan-deck-color-guide
pantone.com

Violet is one of my favorite colors and I’m really excited that this is the color of 2018!

If you go through pretty much every beauty brand today, you can find lipsticks, nail polishes, eye shadows and etc all in this shade. However, you may feel uncomfortable wearing such a bold experimental color to work or to school, but still want to catch up to the trend. If so, then this post is definitely for you.

Here are some tips of how to add twists of violet to you everyday look, and yet, keep up with your personal style.

Although there might be a little deviation from exact Ulta Violet color, all shades of purple and violet are still considered trending.

P.S. You can scroll down to the video where I do my makeup and then get back to the text to  read all the steps in details!

Eyes

For me, eyes are the most comfortable area to experiment with color. Violet is a shade that goes well together with all eye colors.

If you don’t feel comfortable covering your full eyelid with this bold color, consider pairing it with the trending mauve shades. Create a transition of shades from a light mauve color adding a tiny amount of violet to the edges and to your crease.

I like violet shades from Too Faced Chocolates and Peaches pallets, they blend in very naturally to the skin. I use Livin Lavish shade from Gold Chocolate pallet.

s2016699-main-zoom
Sephora.com

Add violet color to your lower lash line. My favorite shade for this is Osiris from Prism Pallet  by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

_101577500

Here are single eyeshadows for more matching color:

icon icon icon

As an option,  you can also apply an eye pencil to the lower lash line and blend it.

My top favorite is from Sephora in shade 32 Tango Night.

Similar pencils:

If you are a big fan of cat eyes and can’t live without lined eyes, consider using violet liner instead of black.

Interesting fact: Butter London has partnered with Pantone this year and released a collection in Ultra Violet once the color has been announced.

Today, the only place where you can find the complete collection is only butterlondon.com. Interestingly, Ulta.com also has their products displayed on their website, but almost all of them remain “sold out”. But don’t despare: Ulta as well as Nordstrom has same shades of same product in stock. They just don’t have a Pantone sticker on the packaging.

Butter London features the Glazen Lustrous eyeliner in Ultra Violet.

If this color is too bright for you, consider its sister Magnetic. It’s a deeper shade and still looks more violet than blue on the skin.

To complete your eye makeup and open up the look, add Gumdrop from Anastasia Sugar Glow kit to outer corners of your eyes. It’s a dual chrome pink/lilac shade. For a bolder look, you can use Spectra Shade from Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit.

_101577451
nordstrom.com

I suggest to finish with black mascara to keep the look more wearable for everyday.

Nails

Nails are another place where you can safely use violet color to be in trend.

Here are the nail polish shades from Pantone 2018 Color of the Year Collection by Butter London.

Misty Lilac  – Purple Rain – Marvelous – Ice Lavander – Hydrangea – Ultaviolet

You can keep it simple and substitute your signature nude/white color with Hydrangea.

2522068

 

As you can see, mauve shades also count.

For a bolder look, use a deeper shades with some sparkles like the Purple Rain.

Luxury Picks for Christmas

In my previous post, I shared top $25 cute gifts for her for Christmas. Today, we are getting to another extreme, sharing my top wishlist luxury picks.

  1. Mason Pearson Extra Large Pure Boar Bristle Hair
    $209.44

    119001247965-original
    masonpearson.com

    The “Rolls Royce” in hair brushes ©. This hair brush combs the hair so gently and manages to detangle my “Rapunzel” hair. It has been frequently featured in Allure Magazine for years.
    I use the Pure Bore Bristle, and this brush is one of my favorite luxury beauty investments I ever made.

  2. Slip Sleep Mask, Pink

    $45

    SLIPWeb_Pink_SleepMask_C
    slipsilkpillowcase.com

    This is an ideal gift for frequent flyers and those who likes comfort everywhere. The silk in these sleep masks is so gentle (tested on myself), and it won’t leave marks on the face.  You can also consider silk pillowcases, which are good for preventions of wrinkles from fabrics that one can get during the night.

  3. TOM FORD Private Blend Soleil Blanc Eau de Parfum

    $230.00–$312.00

    _11972874
    nordstrom.com

    Coconut scents in this perfume remind me of lazy sun-kissed summer days. Why not to enjoy these memories in cold weather?

  4. DYSONSupersonic™ Hair Dryer Special Holiday Edition

    $399.99 
    ($449 Value)

    mwalford
    nordstrom.com

    This luxurious tool promises to get your hair done faster with less damage and, as a result,  having more shiny smooth hair.

    nordstrom.com


    You can’t have a great skin without working on yourself and taking a proper care. The more you age, the more serious your skin care routine should be. For those with tight schedules, it’s better to have some tools at home. Nuface will tone your skin for few minutes per day. I’ve already got one for my mom.

  6. DIPTYQUE Cosmic Seasonal Candle Trio

    $105.00–$210.00

    BEA_BND01P_1117_R.psd

    These candles will fill the house with real festive vibes. Just look at their design! I think it will fit perfectly to any design style, from traditional to contemporary.

  7. TIFFANY VICTORIA® Earrings
