❤❤❤ Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage review ❤❤❤

Lets talk about skin care!
I dont know why I want to talk about eye serum... I think the most important skin care (to me) is eye product. I have some "under-eye wrinkle" what ever you want to call it (I had those things for like ever! And I am only 20!), so I have been looking for something that could fix it....
I have been testing out this serum for about 8 months already. Well I cant promise you I use it every day but before I change into Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream, but I used it at least 6 days a week. My eyes are not puffy but I have dark circles.

The size

Name:

Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage 

How much: 

$32 (Yea I paid too much for this thing...)

Amount:

0.5 oz

What is this:

A rollerball that massages away bags as it brightens and refreshes the eye area.

About the Fomula:

oil-free, non-irritating, ophthalmologist tested, and suitable for all skin types

invigorating caffeine, potent antioxidants, and soothing botanicals

Description:

rollerball goes on under the eyes to cool and refresh

work immediately and over time to brighten the eye area

Easy to take anywhere

it provides a refreshing on-the-spot treatment or can be layered over or under other makeup

 

Personal Requirements

×  remove dark circle 

√  oil- free

×  moisturize 

×  absorb quick

×  minimizes the appearance of fine lines

×  anti - aging


 


It has a rolling ball... feels good on the skin!

The testure

  rollerball goes on under the eyes to cool and refresh (It does feel good when you apply it)

× work immediately and over time to brighten the eye area (This is a joke... work immediately.... i dont think any of the skin care stuff could work "immediately"...unless it contains some harmful stuff, like SKII always does!)

easy to take anywhere


it provides a refreshing on-the-spot treatment or can be layered over or under other makeup

over all: 5/100

This thing is not worth anything to me!  It does not remove the puffiness at all! It does not brighten my under eye either.....I have being using a lot of skin care stuff, but this one is just totally not working on me! I pay $30 for nothing....I didnt put this in the refrigerator while I was using it, maybe if I did, it could work better? BTW this thing works better on my husband... But since he does not use it every day, I dont know  if this works good on him or not. I can only say when I applied this under his eyes and plus concealer, It does hide the dark circle pretty good :)

good: oil free

bad: does not work for everybody

recommend: to those who have heavy undereye circle or super puff eyes becasue I have a friend, she is also used this before she had super heave undereye circle. It works on her, but only removes about 30% of the darkness....

❤❤❤ bunny??? nails !!! SAY NO TO ANIMAL TESTING!!!!!!!!!!!!❤❤❤




I designed this because......



My lovely husband got me a bunny! Her (I think its a girl...) name is BOOBOO haha

======

I just found out Sally Hansen do animal testing on those cute little rabbits (yea they put nailpolishes on their eyes to test them out....)!  How could you?! They are animals, but they have lives, too! I am really upset about this because Sally Hansen is my fav nail pilish brand! 


Here is a list of the brands that doing animal testing, please don't buy them!

❤❤❤ Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Shadow pencil in Clash Swatches & Review ❤❤❤

 This pencil is being on the market for a little while. I did not buy this long time ago because I heard a lot of people think this is a good shadow pencil, but not a must have. Since I tried almost everything from UD, I thought why did I git it a try? I picked the color in Clash.

Packaging:

Looks like a fat version of  the eye liner pencil:

Size - compare to the NYX jumbo eyepencil - almost the same.

Swatches!


This is amazing... after four hour which includes about 10 mins of dish washing (my hands were wet the whole time!), the color stayed on really good!

Name: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Shadow pencil in Clash

Color: bright turquoise with silver sparkle

over all: 90/100
This is a great eyeshadow pencil! Long - lasting, really pigmented, and waterproof. It s really creamy, but its not hard to blend as cream eyeshadow. The only thing bad about this is a little bit harder to blend, but if you have patient, that would not be a problem.

√  Big

Lightweight (I dont really know what this mean... I think all the eyeshadows can be light whight jsut depending on how you use it )

good: almost everything
bad: harder to blend than powder eyeshadows, but a lot easier to blend than cream eye shadows.

recommend: use as a eyeshadow pencil! I dont like to use it as a eyeliner pencil because it does crease at the lower lash line, and the pencil shape is kinda hard to use as a eyeliner.

Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup & Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder Swatches, Pictures & Review

I put there two reviews together just because these two are similar, and I want to compare them. I will do individual review for each one.

===

Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup

The packaging

It has a brush attaches on top

The powder

Swatches on the back of my hand, you can see some shimmer 

Description
Instant hydration with coconut water
Luminous look that lasts all day.
Shine-free formula made with water, not oil

How to use
foundation

How much:
I got for $7 (buy one get one 50% off )

Personal Requirements (my personal requirement for powder foundation): 
light wight:                            √ 
minimizes lines/pores            × 
absorb oils                          
sheen                                  
long lasting                           × 
color match                         easy to find a matching color       
coverage persentage            20%
application                           fine, need a bigger brush 
packaging                            ok/ok for traveling.




I did not put any primer just the foundation

over all: 75/100
This is an ok foundation. Not hard to use, but I wont use it every day. It has a super light wight, and it does feel like the MAC cool liquid powder (when you apply it on, you can feel it cold and liquidy).  It is not hard to find your matching color because all the colors are kinda similar.  Can not keep the hydration for all day, for me it is around 6 hrs. I like the simmer in the foundation. It has a cute brush come with it, I tried to use it but it did not work at all. I feel like this kind of aqua, cool, whatever you want to call it powder need a bigger powder brush to apply. I tried to use a flat powder brush to apply this. It works very well. It has a really poor coverage, and does not minimize my huge pore (like the picture above). I tried to use a primer underneath it, it lasts a little bit longer. The good thing about this foundation is it does not like cakey at all. Most of the powder foundations will make your face feel heavy and cakey but this one is not at all. If you like powder foundation, and you dont have huge pore need to be coverd, it def worth to try it.

Instant hydration with coconut water                     
Luminous look that lasts all day.                      
Shine-free formula made with water, not oil       I dont know, since it has a sheen in it.

good: light wight, add sheen to your face, refresh feeling when apply
bad: the brush is horrible, not enough conerage, absorb oil

!RECOMMENDED!

Finishing Powder with the AGE DEFYING cream foundation



over all: 90/100
I love this setting powder. It just a drug store version of the MAC one's (click here for the mac magically cool liquid powders review!). The only difference would be this one does not have any sheen in it. It is long lasting (I have it one for 9 hrs.... and it still stays on perfectly!) I got the color #40 it is a little bit too dark for me but its not that big of deal becasue after a little while the color is kinda becoming translucent. In this case you dont need to worry about apply this too much on the face LOL. I cant use the brush that comes with it (just like the aqua powder foundation).... it is a little bit harder to apply on face than the MAC one, but the product is def worth the money. I think every girl needs a translucent setting powderlike this!

Instant hydration with coconut water       √ 
Sets makeup for a shine-free finish          √ 
Wears all day                                          √ 
Soft matte formula made with water, not oil., so there’s no shine            √ 
SPF 13                  
Wear alone or with Colorstay Aqua™ Mineral Makeup                     ×  no way! they are different finish, the matte finish will ruin the luminous look

!HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

compare:
The packagings are alike.
The Aqua Mineral Makeup is a foundation, and the Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder is a setting powder
The Aqua Mineral Makeup has a sheen finish, and the Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder is matte

Over All :  30/100
I dont like this. I adore the color but nothing else. It does not last long at all. I had this color for like only one day, and they've already start to come off. The pigmentation is poor, too. I apply four coats on my nails, but you can still see my nail parts underneath the color. It is scented, but I dont like the smell at all. To me, its like a vanilla ice cream. I love vanilla but don't like they make a nail polish smells like that. I guess it depends, I am sure some people like those. Its cheap, but you can see the quality from the picture that they dont worth it. I am sure you can make some nail design with this cute color but I would not try to use it on all my nails!

!NOT RECOMMENDED!

❤❤❤ MAC Magically Cool Liquid Powders in Truth & Light Swatches & Review ❤❤❤

So I never tried something like this - it feels cool and liquidy first apply on the skin, but it is powder!

With flash, you can see the little sparkles in it! I love sparkly face product.....

Description
A silky, feather-light powder

A virtually invisible way to add luminosity and a soft radiant glow to the skin.

application                           fine, need a duo fibre brush   
packaging                            ok/not for traveling.


on my face as a setting powder, it is too light to use as a high lighter on a NW 20 skin!

over all: 95/100
I love love love this! Ive been looking for a setting powder that has sheen in it, but no of them worked for me, but this is THE ONE!  It feels so watery and fresh when you apply it, it is almost translucent but has just a little bit peachy tome in it. I think it would fit any light color skin woman. The only thing is this is hard to use a setting powder brush to apply in on, so I got a MAC 187 brush. I am not a big fan of MAC but this brush works so well with this powder. It can not last a whole day, about 4-6 hours. I wouldn't bring this with me to travel because it would be a disaster and messy!
