Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse review



Hey guys as you know this is a review for the Maybelline Dream smooth mousse foundation the shade that I have is 150.

I had purchase this a while back for about 7-9 dollars (USD) depending on which drugstore you purchase it from.

The formulation of this foundation is a creamy texture, as in it melts when you touch it.
With this foundation a little goes a really long way and take caution that if you do apply to much the product with be streaky and cake up.

I recommend a setting powder with the foundation due to its creamy texture.
A great drugstore powder would be the Maybelline dream matte powder, but if your looking for a high end anyone that you love will be fine.. I use the Mac mineralized skinfinish natural

application of the product: I would recommend a sponge or a brush. Your hands or finger would be too time consuming to melt some onto your fingers and scooping the foundation out if out of the question since in the pan away from heat the foundation is solid. Plus basically double-dipping your finger into your foundation isn't hygienic.

Since we are moving away from the hot & humid weather and moving into cooler days this foundation will be perfect to keep your skin moisturized and due to its semi-dewy finish will prevent your skin from dying out due to the cold.

I enjoy having this foundation at my disposal and is one that I can go back to time to time,

Warning: Keep this foundation away from hot warm places as this foundation will melt and if on its side the foundation will literally leak out. But will all your foundation should be kept a a good room temperature as extreme heat would change/alter the original formulation/properties of the foundation.

here is a swatch of it before its blended ( will not look so thick after blending )



and a how it looks in the pan

Thank you for taking the time to read this review and please do check out my video on youtube

Look into my eyes.. ~~ lunasol palette review









Lunasol is a japanese cosmetic line from kanebo.
There are the two shadow palettes I own
the neutral is CE01
the other is the purple 04 soft variation

you can find lunasol shadow from http://www.imomoko.com

These shadows are pigmented, soft, and blend incredibly well.
However they are on the pricey side each palette I purchased from 42-60 USD.

neutral look


Soft variation 04 (purple)



Overall this product is great if you:

-can get your hands on them
- love glittery shadows
-love japanese cosmetics

Not for you if:

-you don't like ordering online
-out of your price range
-don't like glittery shadows.

Advice
I would not recommend this for more mature ladies just because glittery (shimmer) on mature eyes just accentuates wrinkles just like it does with pores and scarring.

still if you hate matte color and have mature eyes I would go with shadow that have a sheen (satin finish).

Pinky Paradise.com Geo Bambi Lens (sesame grey)




I finally made my first purchase of enlarged color contacts from pinkyparadise.com on August 21. Which was the Geo Bambi Lens in Sesame Grey ( ones I got were non prescription, however they do make prescription contacts as well).
After shipping other charges it was $29.89 us dollars
I received my shipment Sept 1 which included a pair of lens, a free gift hair holder, and a contact case.


As far as how the contact feel: they are super comfortable but I do advise that even before opening the product be sure to scratch off the sticker to reveal the serial number and check for authenticity of the product.

Because no matter how popular contact and how much they are a part of daily life for some people. lens are a foreign object that is literally sitting on top of your eyes.

Take care of your eyes by:
- cleaning your lens in solution
- do not sleep with them on
- dispose of them after a year (or as suggested by the company)
- if they feel irritating in any way be sure to check for tears or dents and if they are present dispose of the contact right away.

My experience with pinkyparadise.com was not extraordinary but not horrible either. I really didn't like the fact that it took 20 days for an item to be delivered and was stuck in customs for days.
But long delivery time is due to the international shipping. So I guess it is good reason

Caution:
when ordering from Pinkyparadise.com BE BE Absolutely sure of your shipping address. Recheck before completing your purchase, because pinkyparadise will charge you TRIPLE for shipping your purchase back out to you if it was shipped back due to mistake in your address.

Lastly I really love my lenses they feel great and actually completes my look~
