Product Spotlight: Givenchy Ondulations D’or

image

Givenchy: A single star-shaped eye shadow case with gold and black shades that can be used alone or combined to create a perfect bronze shade.

I just wanted to post real quick about this product in case anyone was interested in this limited edition item but still unsure.  Without doing a full review primarily because I don’t believe there’s enough to say about it…I’ll say that I like it.  It’s not a must, it’s a nice to have collectors item for the holiday.  I will say with emphasis though that the gold is spectacular and multidimensional specialness.  The last time this item was released was holiday 09′ I believe.

Hair care, skincare and makeup empties with mini reviews

image

I’ve never written a post about empties or have done anything even remotely like it. I know that a lot of people in the beauty community love watching empties videos on YouTube or reading about empties posts but I personally don’t love them. In fact empties are my least favorite of all types of video or blog posts.  There’s something really weird, to me, about looking or being interested in somebody’s trash.

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil First Impression

image

Sunday Riley: Luna Sleeping Night Oil ($105.00) is a next-generation retinoid oil to reduce pore size, improve appearance of damaged skin, and help fight wrinkles.

This is my first impression of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. I remember first hearing about this product from popular and darling beauty blogger Claire Marshall, then several weeks later I heard more beauty bloggers talking about it and eventually one of my good friends purchased it and fell in love with it. That was it, it was a done deal and I had to give it a try. I’ve always been an advocate for having healthy skin and taking good care of my skin beginning in my early 20s. I think a good part of that is because my mom has always cared about her skin and has always been a lover of makeup, all things glamorous, likely due to being a model in the 80s. I’m going to have to try and dig up a picture of her holding me as a new born in one of her photo shoots from the 80s for a throwback Thursday, that would be a lot of fun.

I am on week two of using the Luna and as the product detail suggests, results can be seen immediately after the first night of use. The only thing negative I’ve noticed, besides the cost of coarse, is that I’ve had one blemish pop up. I do believe this is likely due to the process and beginning stages of purging toxins. I’ve had only the one creep up and have had nothing else but soft, texture free calm skin. I can honestly say that without a doubt I’ll be repurchasing this product over and over again. It is undoubtedly a new and permanent product in my skin care regimen. I will however update this blog post if anything changes but I do not foresee there being any problems whatsoever with this oil.

On a side note, after reading a lot about this product prior to purchasing it, it would seem as though it is marketed for oily skin types. I must mention that I have extremely dry skin and contrary to what I was anticipating, do not feel as though I need an additional moisturizer on top of using this oil at night. This is of course the last step I use in my nighttime skincare routine and my skin feels completely balanced after using it.

Thanks for stopping by friends.
