NOTD: Essence It wasn't Me!

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Not planned but I happened to pick up the 2 Essence nail polish in the same names with the Good Girl Bad Girl lipsticks.

Featured today is It wasn't Me! - Glitter Effect. Caught in the Middle will follow, stay tuned!

Colour wise, It wasn't Me! shares the purple base with its lipstick partner. The glitters are super pretty, but get this, they are textured too. Just slightly, but still noticeable on the nails, not smooth like most glitters after a top coat. I didn't expect that, but certainly appreciate the bonus.

I used 1 and a half coats here. The base looks slightly sheer at certain spots under flash but IRL it is opaque enough.

I like purple tones, so this nail polish is a nice addition to the stash. Plus, it is LE :)

I also prefer the smooth round tall bottle shape, good size too (0.27oz/ 8ml), $2.99. Check out other colours in the collection too, with different effect, and 2 bar glitter shades.

It's Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend, any feast planned with your loved ones yet?


Yves Rocher Anti-Age Cure & Mask

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

These are no regular/ daily skin care items. You would definitely need some snack to tune in and hear more about them!

I had reviewed Yves Rocher Anti-age Global products 2 years ago. The line, with gorgeous white packaging and green accent, provides anti-aging care with 4G Plant Source Cells from Echinacea, targeting women over 40 as a treatment and women over 30 as a prevention.

The 2 brand new additions to the lineup are quite unique, right up my alley, definitely peaked my interest.

This luxurious white box holds 4 tiny little bottles (28-day dose) of the Complete Anti-aging Cure with Botanical Native Cells.

Each bottle, with highly concentrated formula, is meant for 1 week use, 4 in total back to back (up to 3 times a year), to give you an intense night-time anti-aging process.

The Cure is supposed to deliver 10 anti-aging results:
- reduce the appearance of wrinkles
- even out skin texture
- revive radiance
- firm, plum, replenish, revitalize, strengthen, renew and moisturize skin.

As mentioned in the original review, I am not fully convinced of the effects of plan stem cells on human skin. However, the ingredients in the Cure has worked wonderfully on me. It is not a "line eraser" by any means but it makes my skin look plump and well rested, hence the lines are less noticeable. And the effect lasts while I am using the product consistently.

The product lasts me longer than the 28 day estimate. It has been a month of testing and I just started the last bottle. And I kinda wish it does not run out, ever.

For the intended purpose, I would not repeat this product until months later, but I love what I see. Definitely recommend as a bi-annual care or if you have a big event (like a wedding - yours, or your kid's) coming up that you know way in advance.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Methylpropanediol, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Betaine, Alcohol, Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water, Sorbitan Stearate, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, etc.

The bottles are 0.23oz/7ml each. The set is $85, on sale for $46.90 now.

In a similar intensity, but more short  termed, is the Complete Anti-aging mask, with Skin to Skin technology.

Formulated to quickly regenerate your skin with more than 97% ingredients of natural origin, this mask is no ordinary!

First, the texture is very different:
- 2-piece sheet mask (top and bottom halves, slightly overlapping when go on the face), sandwiched between an opaque white plastic sheet and a clear film inside the packaging.
- Thin (but sturdy) gelly-like texture, with good amount of liquid. The mask becomes almost invisible on, gently hugs the face and stays on very very well.

I always leave my sheet masks on much longer than the suggested 15-20 minutes. In fact, I went to bed with this one and it was still on my face when I woke up, only slightly tacky and damp at that time.

I was skeptical, as there is only so much a mask can do for the skin, but was then pleasantly surprised. This mask is the flash version of the Cure above, giving me the same effect on the skin that lasts through the morning. Makeup goes on like a dream!

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Sucrose, Potassium Chloride, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Disodium Edta, Potassium Hydroxide.

Similarly, I would suggest this mask before a night on the town or important social event :) The packet is1oz/ 30g, $16, on sale for $8.80.

Forgive my fail attempt to show you the texture of both products in this shot. It is nearly impossible to photograph a clear wet and slippery mask, with protective films on each side. The white sheet you see here is one of those films, the mask is hidden underneath.

The Cure has a runny lotion texture that does not take long to absorb. Given, it is not greasy nor sticky.

In summary, I do recommend both products for special occasions or when you want to treat your skin to something great. The sale price is definitely worth it!


The Body Shop Vitamin C

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

The Body Shop Vitamin C skin care is no stranger to me, as I have used the Vitamin C Skin Boost as a primer for a long while.

The line offers great source of vitamin C in the camu camu berry from the Amazonian rain forest, with 60 times the Vitamin C in an orange. I am in good hands!

There are 2 new items added to the range this last summer that I received for review - the Glow Boosting moisturizer (top) and the Instant Glow enhancer (bottom).

First impressions: still with the signature orange packaging, orange tinted products and light citrus scents.

Let's start with the Glow Boosting moisturizer!

Taking the direction of a morning light weight gel cream texture, the product is meant to hydrate, boost a glow on the skin and fight signs of fatigue.

It sure is moisturizing and refreshing to start the day with. And the hydration stays with me through the day and my skin looks like I had enough sleep most nights (which I don't).

The glow, however, is harder to detect with just this product alone. If you wear makeup almost every day, I do recommend this moisturizer to deliver a good canvas, and the glow effect could be done with a highlighter later.

Ingredients: Water, Alcohol Denat. (solvent), Glycerin (humectant), Propanediol (viscosity modifier), Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/ VP Copolymer (viscosity increasing agent), Ethyl Macadamiate (skin conditioning agent), Isostearyl Lactate (emollient/ skin conditioning agent), etc.

The jar is 50ml, $25.

The Instant Glow enhancer is a hybrid instant glowy fix that can be used as both skin care and makeup.

It has a rosy tint and a soft and silky finish, like a foundation primer, and I do enjoy using it that way, not to improve the lasting power but, again, to prep that smooth canvas before makeup.

The product is also suggested be used as a touchup throughout the day to boost the glow. The tube packaging sure makes it easy to travel with but to me, adding a tinted layer of product might disturb the makeup underneath, so I prefer a spray.

Ingredients: Water, Polysilicone-11 (film former), Glycerin (humectant), Polysorbate 20 (emulsifying agent), Silica (absorbent), Sodium Polyacrylate Starch (emulsion stabilizer), Phenoxyethanol (preservative), Honey (humectant), Menthoxypropanediol (refreshing), etc.

The tube is 25ml, $20.

A closeup of the textures between the 2 products. They are both easy to blend and hardly leave any trace afterward.

I do recommend checking out The Body Shop Vitamin C line, especially the Skin Boost or the Glow Boosting moisturizer I just reviewed. You will sure find a product that suits your skin needs, if you do not mind the light scent.

How do you like October so far? Now that we know Joaquin won't head our way, we can hope for a few more days of sun :)


Essence Good Girl Bad Girl lipsticks

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I finally found the display of Essence Good Girl Bad Girl collection last week.

I grabbed the 2 lipsticks first, $3.49 each. Still have the standard Longlasting lipstick packaging, with the collection name printed on the tube.

The colour indication strips and the coloured labels at the bottom give good indication of the colours, and there are testers on the display as well.

I think it was neat that the colours interpreted the Good Girl - Bad Girl concept pretty well, one "evil" dark colour, one "innocent" pink :)

Here are It wasn't Me! (left) and Caught in the Middle (right).

The pigmentation in these two lipsticks is slightly more sheer with the first coat compared to the core shades, but they layer up quite nicely.

It wasn't Me! looks almost black in the tube. On, it is a very dark plum with a strong tint of purple. A bit patchy, requires a bit of care in application.

As an opposite, Caught in the Middle is brighter in the tube, goes on more subtle. Like I said, it looks innocent and cheerful, as intended. Not totally my type of colour but it is great to layer on top of It wasn't Me! to lighten it.

Swatches below were 2 coats, flash on the left, natural light on the right.

I always have a soft spot for Essence LE lipsticks and wish they had more shades in this collection. The display only has 3 tubes of each shade, so get them soon.

China Glaze Toe-tally Textured

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Tuesday was the 12 year mark of Hurricane Juan, the worst storm (Category 2) that hit this town since 1893. And today we are gearing up for lots of rain through Friday. Exciting stuff!

Have to try to cheer myself up from all that with a bright texture polish. This is China Glaze Toe-tally Textured from the Texture collection 2 years ago.

I have only showed you one other shade from this collection before - In the Rough and it is not as bright. This orange is definitely one of the rare things to save me from misery right now :)

I did one and a half coats with Toe-tally Textured to smooth out some bald spots on my part. No "Pixie Dust"-like sparkly glow here but it is beautiful enough on its own anyway. No complain here.

I will have to get to the rest of the Texture shades in the stash soon, feeling guilty that I have been leaving them in the untried pile for so long.

It has been quite quiet on the new nail polish front for me, which explains why I was wearing lots of old shades. Nothing wrong with that, but I do hope for something new and exciting coming soon.


Lush fresh face masks

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I recently had the opportunity to pick up 2 brand new fresh masks at my local Lush store. They are meant to be stored in the fridge at all time to ensure freshness (with a short window of a few weeks to expiry date), hence cannot be shipped by mail.

The first one is called Don't Look at Me, mostly due to its vibrant aqua blue colour which you might not want to be seen masking with :)

This is a rejuvenating fresh face mask with interesting key ingredients:
- Ground rice: gently scrubs away dry skin
- Murumuru butter: moisturizes
- Zingy lemon juice: tones
- Organic silken tofu: softens the skin. 

Like most face masks, this one is meant to be left on 10-15 minutes, then rinsed with warm water.

I love scrubs so it is not hard to like this mask. The exfoliating effect is just right, not too harsh, not too gentle. Coming out of the fridge, it is cooling and refreshing. And the effect lasts for a bit afterward. The scent is slightly herbal, might not be the best first impression but it does not linger very long.

Ingredients: Kaolin, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus Limonum), Glycerine, Rice Syrup (Oryza Sativa), Ground White Rice (Oryza Sativa), Organic Silken Tofu, Murumuru Butter (Astrocaryum Murumuru), Bentone (Hectorite), Rice Milk (Oryza Sativa), Water, Fragrance, etc.

The tub is small (60g), retails for $10.95.

On the totally opposite spectrum is Rosy Cheeks, a soothing mask for the face and body with Kaolin, Calamine and Turkish rose oil.

It is very smooth going on the skin, with the cooling effect after being refrigerated. Feels like silk when it goes on and after it washes off too.

The texture is quite thick so it takes a bit of spreading action, which is the reason why I don't really use it on the body. But it is the absolute treat for my troubled skin.

Ingredients: Calamine Powder, Glycerine, Kaolin, Water, Rose Clay (Kaolinite), Red Rose Petals (Rosa Centifolia), Fragrance, Rose Oil (Rosa Damascena), *Benzyl Alcohol, Lilial, *Citronellol, *Geraniol.
*Occurs naturally in essential oils.

Same size (60g), sells for $12.95.

You can see the rice particles in Don't Look at Me and how smooth Rosy Cheeks is.

You can't go wrong between these 2 masks, depending on your skin needs. Just make sure you use it up before the expiry date!

There is also Cup 'O Coffee face and body mask but my store didn't have it in at the time. I can see it being a hit to those who love coffee :) Have you tried a Lush fresh mask before? Which is your favorite?


Garnier 2-in-1 eye makeup remover

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Near the end of last month, I spotted a coupon for the new Garnier Skin Naturals 2-in-1 eye makeup remover but couldn't find the product on the shelf. Garnier kindly offered to send me a bottle to try.

This is the dual phased type of makeup remover, needs to be shaken up (clear liquid and light purple oil layer) before using.

The formula is enriched with Arginine, supposedly leaving a protective layer on the lashes, leaving them shiny and supple.

I like the thin and compact packaging, with tightly closed flip top, easy to travel with.

Instructions: shake the bottle, add a few drops to a cotton pad, hold against the eyes for a few seconds, wipe gently without rubbing.

Happy to find the product not leaving a greasy feeling nor blurring out my vision. If you are used to the water-like feeling of micellar products, you will possibly detect a very very light feel of the oil in the formula, but not oily by any means.

It does a great job removing my eyeshadows and about 90% of water resistant liners and mascaras. A follow up with a second cotton pad is recommended if you wear waterproof products. I do not notice any lashes coming off on to the cotton pad.

No concern about the purple tint in the oil transferring to your eyes. The product is almost invisible on the cotton pad. No scent detected.

Ingredients: Water, Isododecane, Isopropyl Palmitate, Undecane, Arginine, CI 60725, Citric Acid, Dipotassium Phosphate, Disodium Edta, Hexylene Glycol, Octyldodecanol, Octyldodecyl Xyloside, Polyaminopropyl Biduanide, Potassium Phosphate, Sodiumchloride, Tridecane (F.I.L. C176875/1).

I would recommend this eye makeup remover, especially if you travel a lot. Suitable for contact lense wearers, the product is 125ml, retails $10.99.


Wet n Wild Here's to the Wild Ones

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

You know when I spotted the display of Wet n Wild Fall 2015 collection Here's to the Wild Ones at Superstore, I had to get some of the LE Megalast lipsticks, don't you? :)

5, to be exact - Celeb Sighting, On the Ave, Vintage Vibe, Photobomb and Nightcap. Decided to skip Coffee Buzz, seems to be too dark to wear most of the time.

I love the matte black tube - hinting the semi matte finish of the lipsticks (vs. the glossy tube in the permanent Megalast lipsticks), but the hazard of the bullet sticking out of the tube still needs to be mentioned.

Celeb Sighting turns out to be my favorite, despite the popular trend of darker lips for Fall. Orange red is always flattering on my skin tone. On the Ave is also quite bright, a fuchsia pink.

The last 3 colours look quite close in the tube but show different bases when swatched. Vintage Vibe has a fuchsia undertone, Photobomb red toned and Nightcap brown toned. You probably don't need all 3, so go with the base colour that suits your skin tone.

The lipsticks are 0.11oz/ 3.3g, 3.49 each.


Weekly flyer deals

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

IMATS Toronto is this weekend!

I originally planned to go but it fell short, sadly. The exhibitors this year are great, especially Bdellium, Inglot, MUFE, Morphe, NYX, etc.

For those who make it, Farleyco has a booth with Real Techniques & EcoTools brushes, COLAB dry shampoos and Zoella Beauty products, for the first time ever :)

With NYX's first Canadian stand-alone store opening next month, they also mention launching products to stores. @thebeautyblogca said they will be in Shoppers next year, together with Joe Fresh. Exciting time!

Now that it's Fall, Halloween makeup starts to show up.

LA Splash posted a sneak peek yesterday on their instagram of the (LE) "Day of the Dead" collection with new colours and gorgeous packaging. Out next month.

I mentioned before the LA Splash Canadian site offers CAD prices and $10 flat rate shipping, still haven't taken the plunge. Also heard there are a few other Canadian sites carrying LA Splash.

Hopefully we can get our hands on this collection without paying too much for shipping.

Wet n Wild Here's to the Wild Ones (LE) Fall 2015 collection has arrived at Superstore. 6 Megalast lipsticks and 6 nail polish.

At the time I found the display, the prices have not been in the system so the SA told the cashier to charge me the same price as the permanent Megalast lipsticks, $3.49 a piece. I don't recall the price for the nail polish.

Similar to the situation with the Venice Beach collection where we only got the lip glosses at Superstore, it doesn't seem we are getting the 5-pan eyeshadow palettes with Here's to the Wild Ones collection either.
