Shaaanxo's Neon Graphic Eyeliner Recreation

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing a recreation I did today of one of Shaaanxo's recent makeup looks. I really liked how edgy the neon chartreuse eyeliner she did was so I kind of wanted to try and do it on myself. I didn't have a color similar to the one she used so instead I used a bright green color and I changed up the lip color to better match the green I chose.

I quite like the way this turned out! What do you all think?

Current Beauty Wishlist (2015)

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing my current beauty wishlist with you all! It's been quite a few months since I last did one of these and at the moment there are a few goodies I've been wanting to get my hands on. I'm not sure how much of these products I will actually get (most of it is high end and I don't have an infinite budget unfortunately), but I kind of like to see it all assembled in one swoon worthy collage.

Current Beauty Wishlist (2015)

As you can see, I'm really into foundations and eyeshadows lately. I'm looking to get my first high end foundation and I'm not sure which one would work best for me. Have any of you guys tried these products? What did you think? Which foundation should I get? Let me know in the comments!

Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette Review

 Hey everyone! I'm back with another review to share with you all. Today I'm reviewing a travel makeup palette, the Smashbox Full Exposure travel palette.

Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette

Color Selection                       
  •  Great mix of colors;
  •  Four matte shades and four shimmery shades;
  • No black, but the cool toned brown works nicely for deepening looks;
  •     Has most of the colors I want in a palette (matte beige, matte brown, shimmery champagne);
  • I'd like a lighter shimmery shade for the inner corners;
  • Not a fan of the blue-ish grey color for myself, but a pretty good option for smokey looks.
Texture and application
  • Very good texture for the matte shadows. Soft, but not overly powdery;
  • The shimmery shadows are a bit gritty and densely packed. They are a bit hard to pick up on a brush. They are easier to apply with your fingers.
  • Sleek and ultra slim, very light;
  • Perfect for travel, it's incredibly tiny (quite a bit smaller than the Urban Decay Naked Basics);
  • Durable and easy to clean plastic casing;
  • Closes tightly with no risk of opening in your bag;
  • Good mirror size considering how tiny the palette is.
  • A bit steep for the amount of product you get;
  • Good quality for the price;
  •  I feel like you pay more for the "travel-friendly" concept.

I'm happy with the purchase even though the palette is a little expensive for what it is. I brought it with me on a cruise and it served me well. I could achieve a lot of looks (although mostly natural/neutral day and night looks) and the packaging saved a lot of space in my makeup bag. So overall it was worth it for me because of the convenience, the packaging and the pretty good quality of the shadows (particularly the matte shades).

Laroche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Intense Soothing care and Dermo-Cleanser Review

As some of you might know, I suffer from allergies and my skin is very sensitive. It has a tendency to fluctuate from dry and scaly to super oily in a matter of weeks. It reacts strongly to any abrasion, is acne prone and I have broken capillaries on my cheeks. In other words my skin is a struggle and I have a hard time finding products that are gentle, but effective. I'm just bought a Clairsonic as I write these words. I will probably post a review in the near future about this addition to my routine and let you know how it goes for me.

This duo I have been using on and off for a couple months. It might not be apparent form the pictures, but they are quite small bottles. I do alternate between these guys and less expensive products, which may somewhat change their efficiency for my skin. Nevertheless, I have been using them long enough now that I feel comfortable reviewing them for you.

I'm trying a new format for this review in order to make it easier to read. Let me know if you like this or not!



Very gentle on the skin, does not irritate
Very expensive
No tight feeling after washing the skin
Could be a little too hydrating for some people (too hydrating for me when my skin becomes oily)
Kind of difficult to get the face wash out of the bottle
Very hydrating
The face wash does not foam, which kind of bums me out a little
Moisturizer comes with a pump, which is very hygienic
No SPF in the moisturizer
Moisturizer is absorbed quickly into the skin and is easy to spread out

Overall : I love this line and my skin does as well. It's great when my skin is feeling dry, irritated or allergic. It's abit too heavy for summer, but it does nicely in the winter. I would repurchase in the future,


That's it for this quick review! Did you all like the new table format? I think it's really easy to read and I might do more of these in the future. What do you all think?
