Clarisonic MIA 2

Hello Beauties :)
So today is going to be a review of the Clarisonic MIA 2. Lots of you guys have been asking about my opinion on it and if I think it's something that you should work into your skincare routine. And let me just say before I even get into any details, yes it is something you should work into your skincare routine.


If you're not familiar with what kind of skin type I have, I do have oily but sensitive skin. Before I bought the MIA 2 I was just doing the bare minimum of cleaning my face. I was using make up remover wipes and maybe toner here and there, I really wasn't doing a lot to my skin and I realized that I needed something to kind of scrub my face better than I was doing and after I had seen a ton of reviews on youtube, I decided to finally buy it.


The Clarisonic MIA 2 comes in a set with the brush head, a travel case, a charger and a travelsize cleanser. It costs 149$ and you can buy it at places like Ulta, Sephora and Nordstrom.

First thought that probably comes to mind about putting a brush on your face is that it's going to be rough. Not with the Clarisonic Mia 2! It felt more like a massage on my face, very gentle and relaxing. I use it every night and sometimes even in the morning so that my foundation goes on smoother. Also is it completely waterproof so you can use it in the shower.

The Clarisonic Mia 2 has two speed settings, but I don't mind on which speed my Clarisonic is set when I use it. The Clarisonic also has a T-Timer. The T-Timer is set at one minute and gives you a pulse when it's time to move to the next area of your face. Forehead (20 sec.), nose and chin (20 sec.), cheeks (20 sec.). I always start at my chin so the water and cleanser doesn't run down from my forehead into my eyes.
 
  
The first time I used the Clarisonic I was amazed because my skin felt so clean and soft afterwards and after I used it for about 3 weeks I  began to notice a difference in how my skin looked. I hardly ever have huge breakouts anymore and my pores appear smaller. Also my foundation looks much better when I apply it. Overall I wouldn't wanna miss my MIA 2 in my skincare routine anymore and would definitely buy it again.
 
Remember your skin may get worse before it gets better but don't let that discourage you. It just means its removing all that gunk trapped under your skin. I 100% recommend this to all my makeup lovers. Nothing better than the clean face feeling. 

Benefit CORALista

Hi Beauties :)
Today's featured product is one of my most loved blushes in my make up collection: Benefit CORALista.  This is described as "a coral blush for a tropical flush", and it is very suitable for summer!


One thing I love about all Benefit Boxed Powders is the packaging. Benefit CORALista is cased in a colorful cardboard box with an attached flip lid. I think the packaging is very unique and definitely stands out. Also, CORALista comes with a little brush like all the other boxed powders. They're definitely better quality than the typical brushes you'll get with products, but I still prefer an actual blush brush for application.



 
CORALista is a coral blush with a golden shimmer to it. It is one of those corals that is compatible with any skin undertone, and works really well on fair to medium complexions. The pigmentation of this blush is really nice, and it blends and wears well. 


Overall, I really recommend this blush if you are looking for a good all-around staple. I think CORALista is a great everyday blush and you can wear it with practically any eye make-up.

 CORALista retails for $28 and contains .28 oz/8g of product. You can get this wherever Benefit cosmetics are sold!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR - Pink Gold

 Hi beauties :)
Today I want to do a review on the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.). It's my thrid one and definitely will not be my last, there are just too many pretty colors. Pink Gold is a rosegold,  fairly cool in tone and has a pretty silver almost metallic looking shimmer.


The product comes in a sturdy clear glass jar, with a black screw-on lid that closes very well. Overall the packaging is very similar to MAC's paintpots. Also, be careful if you have more than one open, because the product’s name is actually on the lid, not the bottom of the jar, so if you can easily mix them up.  Thankfully, the shade range is pretty diverse and there aren’t shades that look too similar to each other, so it is possible to look them up if you forgot.
 
 
  The eyeshadow itself has an interesting consistency, at first it's creamy but when you put it on and start to blend it gets powdery. You can still blend it perfectly and there a no harsh lines at all. It's is very well pigmented and stays on my eyelids without an eyeshadowbase almost all day. 

I really like this product and would recommend it to everyone who likes nudish & shimmery eyeshadows. I think it is a great color to wear all over your lid when you don't have the time to do a more time-consuming eye make up and it still looks put together. You can wear it as a base, as an eyeliner or solo.



4th of July

Hi beauties :)
I thought I could show you my idea for a 4th of july naildesign. So instead of the normal US flag I decided to do a sugar spun nail design with the colors white, red and blue. For white I used essie - blanc, for blue essie - mesmerize and for red essie - fifth avenue.

Hallo ihr Lieben :)
Heute wollte ich euch meine Naildesign für den "4th of July" zeigen. Anstatt der normalen USA Flagge habe ich mich für ein Sugar Spun Naildesign in den Farben weiß, blau und rot entschieden. Benutzt habe ich dafür essie - blanc (weiß), essie - mesmerize (blau) und essie - fifth avenue (rot).
