SHEA GO Lucky Lips Lip Balm *****

2 Feb

I’m on to my second stick of this (the first is probably lost in a random purse) and find it quite comparable to more expensive lip balms. Shea Go lip balms can be found online from Natural Beauty Canada for $4.99. (Buy here) They come in a range of scents and act as a basic no frills moisturizer for your lips. I currently have vanilla and love the mild scent.  A really cool fact is that the product is actually a Vancouver BC local! Produced by Greenhouse Health & Beauty.

The main ingredients include Sunflower Seed Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, and Parfum – making it a veggie friendly product, but not completely vegan.

ETIVAL LABORATOIRE Ener-C Moisturizing Lotion

31 Jan

I studied the product a couple years ago and decided to give it a try when I spotted it on special. It is very comparable to VICHY’s Aqualia Antiox Moisturizer, my current choice product. They are both packed with vitamin C and produced by dermotologist recommended companies. After trying both, I would stick the the claim of them being very similar, but recommend each to a different consumers. This particular product I would say is great for those with drier skin, as it is a thicker cream. It also boasts a protection of SPF 30, for those looking to combine products.

Personally, I will stick the the lotion produced by VICHY. It is a fluid texture, allowing quick absorption, and I notice a larger increase in radiance from this product versus the cream above.

This little beauty is named glaze, but acts for so much more! Coming from the always great Cover FX, MintGlaze FX is meant more as a treatment than just a pretty gloss.

COVER FX Setting FX Translucent Loose Mineral Powder *****

17 Mar

Praise for this product and line are endless. Cover FX Translucent Loose Mineral Powder is the setting powder every make up artist needs in their kits and every lady or gent needs for personal use. This fine milled powder sets cream and liquid foundation for extended wear and prevents color transfer. A modest price is attached to this great product, one jar will last you a years worth of personal use.  While labeled “translucent”, this product also comes in “dark”, which was tailored by requests for darker skin tones worried about using white powder, but one of the great things about this product is that ANY skin tone can use the “white” shade. Veering off the beaten path, Cover FX Setting FX contains no talc (this is what gives powders that whitish look when put on any more than bare minimum), giving consumers the freedom to use one shade on all tones and not worry about whiting out yourself or client.
