For this post, we will be reviewing the Marc Jacobs Glitter See-Quins Eyeshadow and it’s from the Marc Jacobs 2018 Holiday collection.
According to the Sephora website, “It’s a limited-edition, glitter-packed eyeshadow with bold pigment and maximum sparkle in six eye-catching shades.”
“This sequin-finish eyeshadow in a pot adds super-shimmering dimension to any look. The innovative, demi-pressed process allows the pigments to apply more vividly and gives the glitter maximum sparkle. The versatile formula can be packed on for intense glitter or blended for a soft wash of sparkle. It’s high-impact dazzle with smooth glide and bold color. Complete every outfit with a touch of See-quins in your choice of six sparkling shades. “
It costs $35+ taxes which will be 40$ on Sephora here in Montreal, Canada.
The shade that I got is 86 Copperazzi and it’s in 3.5g. I like the box or packaging. The gold and black design looks really classy. The actual container of the product is also very pretty. It has a gold cap with the brand name and a see through glass bottom. Be careful not to drop this because the bottle is breakable.
When you open it, you will see the shield inside that prevents that glitter from spreading all over the place. I wish all of the glitter or loose face powders got this kind of shield because I hate it when I open a glitter, eyeshadow, or loose powders and they spread all over my clothes or desk.
This is a beautiful copper shade of glitter. My mom also loves this shade. It has a lot of pigment everytime I swatch it. It has texture but it’s very easy to managed and blend it on your eyelids.
I used this eyeshadow too last holiday gatherings and dinner. A lot of people noticed my eyeshadow and complimented me for the glitter eyeshadow. I had applied essence metal shock shadow then I used the Marc Jacobs Copparazzi Glitter eyeshadow on the outer and inner corners of my eyes.
When applying the glitter eyeshadow, I noticed that there’s a big difference between applying the product using an eyeshadow brush and just with your fingertips. I suggest using your fingertips because it picks up more product and it is more pigmented on your eyelids.
We’ll be talking about Prom dresses for 2019! A lot of people want to be ahead of finding the right dress and it’s never too early to look for the perfect prom dress for you!
Like in the previous prom dresses video/post, I once again have broken the dresses into 5 different categories to help you choose which one you think would look best on you and also to explore different styles!
The 5 categories are, short dresses, off-the-shoulder dresses, silk/satin like dresses, two piece dresses, and sequined dresses.
I will show you the pictures from the website and MillyBridal also provided me with the videos of the dresses which I think is a great idea so that you can see how it looks via video and not only in pictures. I will also display the colors available for the dress so that you can envision different looks with it. I will put their website on the description box down below for more details.
First, let’s start with short dresses. These are for you girls who would like to wear short dresses instead of a long floor length one.
This first dress is the A-line Sweetheart Satin Asymmetrical Pockets Prom Dresses. It’s the best combination of a short dress and a floor length dress. This dress is vintage inspired and I like the color black and also the inside is red. The combination of those colors are just sexy.
This is a tube like heart cut on the front looks good with the dress’ cut, it is also a strapless dress and the back is also simple with a zipper. The cut looks great because it tightens on the waist which will enhance your curves and it looks sexy even though you’re not showing too much of your cleavage and back. It just shows that being a little bit conservative can be sexy as well!
This dress is the A-line Off-the-shoulder Satin Tulle Short/Mini Sashes / Ribbons For Cheap Prom Dresses. I love the color grayish silver with the flower like texture/design on the upper part of the dress that extends a little bit on the bottom part of the dress. The texture is great for an off the shoulder dress like this. It’s very feminine, cute and sexy as well.
The back is laced up and it also has the cute flower texture on the back. The tulle bottom part of the dress adds a great shape to your body. The small ribbon detail on the waist too is very cute and stylish. I also adore cocktail dresses because a lot of people also prefers short dresses so that it’s easier to manage during prom.
OFF THE SHOULDER
This is the Trumpet/Mermaid One Shoulder Satin Floor-length Draped Prom Dresses. There’s just something sexy about off the shoulder dresses. Even though this one is only one shoulder, the ruffle design on it makes it sexy and elegant. The ruffle design also extends at the back.
You don’t need lots of bling bling or small details because the cut of this dress is already gorgeous. It will definitely show off your curves. The mermaid cut is also very pretty and it looks like it’s still very easy to walk with.
This is the Trumpet/Mermaid Off-the-shoulder Silk-like Satin Sweep Train Split Front Prom Dresses. This dress is definitely elegant! From it’s color, to the cut and fit of the dress! The off the shoulder has a ruffle style that also extends at the back.
It has a cut on the front or the split front which I find very sexy on this dress! It zips at the back and it also has a train design at the back which is not too long so it’s still manageable to walk with. The trumpet/mermaid that is floor length adds to the sexiness to the split front cut.
SILK LIKE SATIN DRESSES
This is the Sheath/Column Cowl Neck Silk-like Satin Ankle-length Split Front Prom Dresses. I really love the flow of this dress. It looks very soft and comfortable because of the satin fabric used in this dress. It also has a split front detail on the front. The back has a open sexy back design.
Even though this dress is not floor length, it is only an ankle length dress, it’s still gorgeous because of the soft flow of the dress. The cowl neck also looks really great because it also reminds me of a v neck cut which enhances the boobs area without showing too much.
This is the A-line Halter Satin Sweep Train Ruffles Prom Dresses. Once, again, the black and red/burgundy combination is elegant and looks sophisticated. This dress is very seductive for me. The top part is very sexy from front to back. The open back design is gorgeous to show of your skin.
The front part has a cut in the middle that enhances the cleavage part and isn’t that just really sexy? The bottom part which is floor length has a satin like finish that even though there are no gems, stones or any bling bling design, it still looks stunning!
TWO PIECE DRESS
This is the A-line Off-the-shoulder Jersey Floor-length Split Front Prom Dresses. This dress reminds me of Princess Jasmine’s clothes but instead of pants like bottom, it has a split front cut that makes this dress gorgeous and sexy. It’s like a modern version of princess Jasmine!
The top part has an off the shoulder strap and another thin strap that is not off the shoulder. The lining of the top part looks so good and well made. The a line cut also looks sexy on this dress which gives your breasts a good shape.
This is the Sheath/Column V-neck Chiffon Floor-length Split Front Prom Dresses. THe nudish pink color is stunning on this dress and it looks very feminine. Adding dainty jewelries will be really good for this dress. The top part has a spaghetti strap with a v neck cut on the front.
The back part has an open back design. The bottom part is also flowy because of the material used which is chiffon. It also has a split cut to show off some legs. I like the see through style. It’s sexy without showing it all!
This is the Trumpet/Mermaid V-neck Sequined Sweep Train Prom Dresses. This dress is very magical for me. It will definitely capture a lot of eyes and people’s attention. It looks stunning and classy because of the sequined design! There are dresses that if it has too much of these sequined style, it doesn’t look great at all. But with this dress, it’s sexy from top to bottom. You won’t get enough of it’s sparkles!
The spaghetti strap plus v neck design enhances your neck and cleavage. The back part has an open back design and it’s also low. The bottom part of this dress looks so good because of the mermaid/trumpet cut design. It’s longer on the back and floor length on the front which will be easy to walk with.
This is the Trumpet/Mermaid Satin Sequined Two Pieces Backless Scoop Neck Prom Dress. This is the dress for you if you don’t want a top to bottom sequined style. This dress looks very modern and fancy. This one is a two piece dress that has a black top and a sequined gold mermaid cut bottom. This dress looks like you’re a mermaid princess!
The simple top compliments the bottom which has a gorgeous sequined design. It has a nice contrast. The back has an open back design to show off some skin at the back which is very sexy for this dress and ties the all over design!
LaurDIY is a content creator on Youtube and is most known for her amazing DIYs. It’s been a while since she launched her merch and she also partnered with Ardene. I’m excited to try them out and tell you what I feel about it.
It was hard for me to find her merch here in Montreal and I was waiting for a long time to find it in my local area. Fortunately, when I passed by in Ardene in Plaza Cotes Des Neiges area, I found her merch and it was on sale for 50%-70% off!
I purchased a larger size compared to my actual size because I personally like oversized hoodies.
LAURDIY MOOSE HOODIE and SHORTS
I find the clothing material thin and very lightweight. The design is good especially the colors. It has a pocket in front. The pocket is not that big to put both of your wallet and phone but I think your phone will fit perfectly.
As for the shorts that came with it, the design and combination of colors are also good. It is also a thing clothing material. The shorts are very comfortable to use at home and to sleep as well. The only problem I encountered was it was not adjustable. It has a ribbon or ties in front but you can’t use that to adjust the waistline. I got this one in medium size and fortunately, it fits me ok and no need to adjust the waistline.
This one has a slightly thicker and softer material compared to the MOOSE HOODIE. I feel like it’s also warmer when I tried it on. The pocket on the front has almost the same size as the MOOSE HOODIE.
As for the pants, they are comfortable and warm. The bottom of the pants tightens which I like for my body/leg structure.
However, I encountered the same problem with the MOOSE shorts. Since I purchased a larger size than my actual size, the pants were way too large for me. The tie on the front is also not adjustable.
The choice of color is also good. It’s a koala so it is in color gray and little touches of pastel pink heart on the front. And also as a mini heart blush for the koala hoodie.
IS IT WORTH IT?
For me, since I purchased it on a 50%-70% sale, I would say YES. They are very cute and comfortable that I may even wear the hoodies in school. It is stylish enough to be worn outside or casually. I personally like hoodies like this because I stream on Twitch.tv(https://www.twitch.tv/kaiseymahizaki) and my viewers also enjoy these kinds of hoodies.
I hope this quick review is helpful for you if you are also planning to try LAURDIY’s merch!
I’ll be reviewing BFFECT skin care products that I’ve been testing my self for weeks now and I will share my experience and thoughts about this product.
Who or what is BFFECT?
BFFECT is a skincare brand and the name signifies Basic Yet Effective. Their goal is to provide healthy and flawless skin without overpaying for “miraculous ingredients”.
It is also a young skin care brand that has gone viral and always gets the attention of people looking to have a perfect skin especially in Asia.
The best thing I love about this company is it is Cruelty-Free, so they dont test their products on animals. It is also Non-irritant so it’s definitely suitable for sensitive skin.
They have different product categories:
Hydrators and oils
The products I have been testing are hydrators and oils, and Brightening. I already filmed an unboxing video which I will link down below.
Products I tested:
A Daily Brightening Serum for Dark Spots Removal
Hyaluronic Acid 2% + Na-PCA 1% 30ml
A Classic Moisturizer to Make Skin Smooth, Elastic, and Radiant
My first impressions were the packaging was minimalistic and good. It was securely packaged for delivery. The bottle is glass and the dropper feels like glass as well.
The first time I used the product, I was excited to do the Instagram beauty guru dropper thing. I realized that a drop goes a long way.
I use the moisturizer in the morning and the Luz brightening serum for dark spots during the night. There is also a recommended usage written on the bottle or box but I prefer to use it that way.
When I started using the moisturizer in the morning, I saw a big difference on my skin. My skin is dry and flaky especially around the mouth area and forehead.
I have tried different moisturizers in the evening and morning and nothing soothes my skin. There was a point I got really desperate to find a good hydrator or moisturizer to solve this problem because even when I go to school or work, people tell me about my dry areas and patches on my skin.
Ever since I used this moisturizer from bffect, no one went up to me and tell me to hydrate my skin because it looks so smoothes and glowy. Even I was surprised because I was very close to give up on trying to find the perfect hydrator for my skin.
As for the Luz, the brightening one, I chose to get this one because I have dark spots on my face especially the forehead area because of my acne prone skin. I have been using products that are anti acne like salicylic acid and stuff but sometimes they cause more inflamation to my pimple and burn the skin that leaves more dark spots.
Luz has helped me brighten up my dark spots around my mouth area and also the forehead. Although I cannot prevent my pimples from appearing on my skin especially on that time of the month. Girls you know what im talking about. Luz has helped on the healing process. It never inflamed my pimples and the amazing thing I noticed, if I have a big pimple at night, when I use this before bed, in the morning it has gone smaller.
Now each person’s skin can react differently but BFFECT skincare is truly non irritant. I myself have sensitive skin but I never encountered a problem.
Now you might want to ask, these are oils, is it too oily when you apply it on the skin? I had that question too.
But the first time I used it, it never felt like it’s too oily. Once you applied it on your skin, it dries after 30 sec to a min which leaves your skin a hydrated feeling and not oily. I also put my makeup on top of it and my skin never went too oily or patchy as it used to before.
Even tho BFFECT sent me this product to test it out, when I ran out of it, I wont mind purchasing again using my own money because I see it really worthit because it’s affordable and definitely effective especially for my skin.
I definitely recommend this product and if you guys are interested, check out BFFECT’S website here: https://reurl.cc/aNV77
I’ve been using this perfume since I arrived here in Canada which was 2016. It’s been 2 years and I never got tired of using it. So I figured I will make a review about it for those who are interested in purchasing this perfume. I got this perfume from Clinique branch in The Bay Montreal Downtown for $86 before taxes and $98 after taxes.
I just recently got this 100 ml / 3.4 oz and it came in this gradient pink box. It is simple and I like it. It has a small poem at the back, caution note, ingredients and info about the product and company.
The actual product is in this pink see-through glass bottle. The cap is not magnetic like the Chanel perfume I have reviewed before. The cap is plastic but it doesn’t look like it because of the metallic look of it. The 50 ml version looks exactly the same but I recommend getting the 100 ml for everyday use.
Since this is a perfume, the scent is more concentrated compared to a cologne. It’s fragrance notes are mandarin orange, cassia, cucumber, primula, carrot, water hyacinth, sandalwood, and white woods. The very first time I used this perfume, I liked it right away. The scent is so refreshing and it’s a sweet fruity, floral scent. It’s like a scent that a fresh baby wears.
Another reason why I love it is it lasts long. The scent lasts for 6-7 hours. I normally spray it 3 times to achieve that but when I like a more subtle natural fresh scent, I only spray it once. The scent fades in a nice way all throughout the day and it smells very natural.
It’s back to school season! Are you excited to go back to school?
I went back to school last July 31st, and I know it’s an odd day of the month to go back to school so let’s just say I started August. Let me know if you’re school starts in August or September!
For this giveaway, it’s not a school supplies giveaway like every youtuber is doing right now but I want to giveaway eyeglasses instead! Firmoo reached out to me to try their new collection of eyeglasses but since I still have my own glasses, I wanted to give it out to you instead.
Before I get into the giveaway details, I wanted to do a review of their glasses!
The quality of the eyewear
I used Firmoo glasses since the very first time they reached out to me. It was 2016. So let’s say it’s been 2 years but this particular glasses I’m wearing in this video, I’ve been using it for a year now. It has a great quality, it never broke and didn’t have scratches even tho I didn’t put anti-scratch on it.
They have lots of other features or coatings that you can add for your glasses such as anti-glare, anti-fingerprint, anti-scratch, anti UV and so much more.
It is very affordable, and they go on sale often. They even have BOGO offers! Which will also be linked down below if you guys are interested!
2. Whether the prescription is right or not (for glasses with a prescription)
-The current firmoo eyeglasses that I’m using is with a prescription. I got my eyes checked and sent firmoo my prescription and they did a great job because when I checked the glasses when it arrived and the prescription is right. On their website, you have options on how to give them your prescription. You can scan and upload your prescription or just type it on the table or field they have provided. What I did was upload the prescription and also enter it on the field they have provided to make sure I sent the right prescription.
3. Whether it is easy to place an order
-It is very easy to place an order on their website. Never encountered a problem. Their website is very straightforward and user-friendly. They even have a feature which is called virtual try on which is very useful when picking out glasses to see which will look good on you.
Just in case you have questions or inquiries, their customer service is amazing. They respond fast and addresses your needs but be aware that when you email them on weekends, they might get back to you on the next business day.
4. The shipping aspect
-Shipping is very fast. When I order from them online, the product arrives in the same week. It actually depends where you live but I’m in Canada and it arrived really fast. The product is really handled properly and packed very well to make sure it is not damaged during delivery or transit.
5. Buying a pair online as the back-up is the best choice
-I never broke and lose my eyeglasses but I really suggest getting another pair of glasses as a backup just in case you broke yours and you couldn’t drive or take down notes in school because of your poor vision. In fact, I know someone very close to me that broke his glasses so many times and didn’t have a backup glasses and it gave him a hard time to do his simple everyday tasks.
6.The exchange & return policy
3-Month Warranty: Customers will enjoy a 3-month warranty (3 months of receiving), covering any possible defect in materials and workmanship. This warranty does not cover wear and tear from everyday use, or sudden force or impact.
30-Day Exchange&Return: Unsatisfied glasses can be exchanged or refunded within 30 days of receiving. Only shipping fees will apply. Customers are eligible for a one-time exchange&return for each order.
