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.
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.

For this blog post, will be taking a look at the best prom dresses I found on millybridal.org. Their prom dresses alone are 60 pages and I went through all of them to pick the best prom dresses for you!
I will break these into 5 different categories so that we will have bigger criteria of dresses and give each criterion a chance. It’s also for you if you haven’t decided yet on which dress will look great on you. The 5 categories are sequined dresses, V neck dresses, Off the shoulder dresses, Lace/Tulle Dresses and finally the velvet dresses. Let’s start!
-This sequined mermaid dress looks so elegant with its short v cut on the front. The back part is a sexy open back design with a small string that crosses at the back. The lower part of the dress has a wide train cut which is manageable when you walk. The cut of the dress emphasizes your curves and the sequined design makes you shine and stand out from the rest from the moment you enter the room.
-Same sequined mermaid V neck dress but has a deeper V cut compared to the first dress. The color can be perfect for any skin type. The waist area is tight the will emphasize the shape of your body. It has a deep open back design which will make you look sexy from front to back. The train cut on the lower part of the dress is not as long or wide compared to the first dress.
-This tulle court train dress looks great because of the V neck design with the lace open back cut. If you’re not comfortable with a deep backless design, this dress will just give a peek of your back. There is a floral lace design on the upper part of the dress and that design continues until the lower waist part of the dress. The flower lace design also continues until the back of the dress. It has a long train but it is a lace design which won’t be too heavy.
-This hot ballgown high neck dress has a deep V cut that looks so sexy and it has a backless design. The dress’ name itself is HOT. The lower part has ruffles and the tulle design of the dress made it look classy. This dress will look so elegant if it’s in the color black as shown in the picture or even in red that will give it a sophisticated and charismatic look.
-I love off the shoulder dresses but is dress is like for a princess. The upper part of the dress has this pretty sparkles or gems and the back part of the dress is a mesh see-through which also looks sexy without baring it all at the back.
-This red off the shoulder dress is stunning. The color of the dress itself is so pretty. It looks like you are a vampire princess in my perspective. The cut on the cleavage part is sexy and very seductive. The cut is not too low and not too high either and it gives your breasts good shape. The long tain cut at the bottom is tulle or lace which is not that heavy and will be manageable to walk.
-The color of this dress looks very pretty and very feminine. The lace design on the upper part of the dress is well designed as well as the back part. There are small white flowers or leaves design on the upper part of the dress that continues a little bit at the upper back part of the dress. The lower part of the dress is tulle or lace which looks very flowy and cute.
*A-line Scoop Neck Chiffon Tulle Floor-length Appliques Lace Black Long Sleeve New Arrival Prom Dresses – https://bit.ly/2l2ECv0
-The upper part of this dress is an A-line scoop neck chiffon tulle and it has a lace long sleeve as well. This dress is kinda gothic but seductive kind of dress. The design on the sleeves is very well made. The A-line looks so sexy and it is enhanced by the lace chiffon tulle design. There is also a cut on the lower part of the dress where you can show off your leg.
-This Mermaid Scoop neck velvet dress already looks gorgeous in the front and when you turn your back, you will see this good design back part of the dress. The sparkles or gems are greatly designed and went very well with the dress. Even if you don’t wear too many accessories with this, the gems on the back will be enough.
*A-line V-neck Velvet Sweep Train Split Front Dark Navy Long Sleeve Sexy Prom Dresses – https://bit.ly/2MfWM94
-This is the deepest V dress that I saw in here and that’s exactly why I love this dress. It has this deep V cut but has long sleeves which made it look very classy. The 2 cuts on the lower part of the dress made this look more sophisticated. Even though it doesn’t have a beaded or sparkles design, it only proves that it less is beautiful and it is still very stunning and sexy.
-I want to include an honorable mention because this dress caught my eyes but I don’t know which category to put this in. This is a two piece kind of dress. This dress reminds me of Kim Kardashian! Very simple but classy look and a great dress to show off your great curves!
So those are the dresses I personally think that are best to wear for prom. Thank you once again Milli Bridal for giving me the liberty pick the dresses and review them for my viewers!
Special thanks to Influenster for sending the Voxbox for free and for testing/review purposes!
Total Tease Mascara claims:
“Full. Long. Refined. Sexy, teased lashes! Use the lash teasing mascara comb for ease and control to tease even the tiniest corner lashes for a full, voluminous look. Dark, defined lashes that last all day!”
My eyelashes are decent, not too thick, not too thin either. The total tease mascara adds volume to my eyelashes but doesn’t lengthen them.
The tease comb helps a lot with teasing my eyelashes especially reaching the tiniest corner.
It lasts more than 8 hours on my eyelashes.
Katy Kat Eyeliner claims:
“Created by Katy Perry! Get intense-looking eyes that get you noticed with COVERGIRL Katy Kat Eye Liner. It creates Bold to fine lines for the perfect Kat/cat eye. Requires sharpener, sharpener not included.”
This Katy Kat eyeliner is hard to use to create a wing eyeliner.
The smudging tool on the other end is pretty hard and rough to use on the eyes.
It doesn’t last long and it fades throughout the day.
It’s good to use for tight lining the eyes.
It’s good to use for a smokey eye look.
The shade I got was Kitty KatDabra has glitter on it and it only lasts 2-3 hours on my eyes then it fades.
