Love & Beauty by Forever 21 Makeup Cleansing Tissues

Posted by on Oct 1, 2014 in Beauty Bargains, Em Português, Reviews | 3 comments

 

Hi everyone!!

 

The other day I stopped by Forever 21 at my local mall to grab a couple of things and while standing in line to pay for my items, I decided to grab three different packs of the makeup cleansing tissues they were selling. I was very skeptical to try them (since they were being sold at Forever 21, versus a regular drugstore), but for $2.80 per pack, I could definitely afford the pre-announced failure I thought they would be.

However, to my surprise, they’ve been working really well on my sensitive skin for the four weeks I’ve been using them.

The tissues have a nice scent that is not too strong and doesn’t really bother me. They’re not super wet, like some other cheap ones I’ve tried, but damp enough to remove all my makeup (except for the mascara, which I rather remove with an eye makeup remover) without me having to put too much pressure on my skin. Also, it didn’t make my oily and sensitive skin break out or itchy.

In other words, this is a REAL GOOD DEAL!!!

*********A pack with 30 tissues cost $2.80 at Forever 21 stores and website.

Lencinhos Demaquilantes da Forever 21

 

Olá pessoal!!!

 

No outro dia fui na Forever 21 comprar umas “roupitchas” e enquanto esperava na fila pra pagar, resolvi pegar três pacotes diferentes de lencinhos umidecidos pra remover maquiagem que estavam sendo vendidos lá. Sinceramente, não estava levando muita fé nos lencinhos da loja, já que a Forever 21 não é uma loja específica de produtos de beleza.  Mas por $2.80 cada pacote, resolvi experimentá-los, afinal, se eles fossem horrorosos, eu só estaria jogando no lixo $8.40, o que não é tão ruim assim.

Porém, para minha surpresa, os lencinhos funcionaram super bem na minha pele sensível e oleosa nessas 4 semanas em que venho os usando. Consigo remover toda a minha maquiagem com um único lencinho, além de não ter me dado nenhuma alergia.

Os lencinhos têm um cheirinho suave e agradável, não são muuuito ‘molhados’, como alguns de marcas mais baratas que já testei, mas são úmidos o suficiente.

Ou seja, acredito ter feito uma óTIMA COMPRA!!!

Cada pacote contém 30 lencinhos e custa $2.80.

b.m.c. Face Kabuki Brushes

Posted by on Sep 15, 2014 in Beauty Bargains, Em Português, I LOVE brushes!, Reviews | 4 comments

 

Hi looooooooves!

The other day I came across the website bundlemonster.com, where I bought these brushes from.

The brushes have thick handles, which I prefer, because it gives me a better grip and are made of wood. The synthetic bristles are soft, but dense, perfect for foundation and concealer application. In addition, they can be used to apply cream products as well (cream blush, for instance). The last important piece of information I must give you is that they DO NOT shed! YAY!

The kit came in a pouch with four brushes:

K01 – Flat Kabuki

K02 – Round Kabuki

K03 – Tapered Kabuki

K04 – Angled Kabuki

The brushes are good, were delivered within 5 business days (which is good timing) and are great for makeup artists that need to have a few extra brushes in their collection (they are so affordable).

The only thing is that the mirror that comes inside the brush pouch was broken, but it’s ok, I’m pretty sure I’ll survive… :)

The kit cost $23.50.

Lots of Love………………..Polly

Oi amoooooores!

No outro dia descobri o website bundlemonster.com, onde comprei esse kit de pincéis.

Eles são de madeira e têm o cabo grosso, o que é ótimo para dar mais firmeza na hora de segurá-los. As cerdas sintéticas são macias, porém densas, perfeitas para a aplicação de base ou corretivo.  Além disso, podem ser usados na aplicação de outros produtos cremosos (como blush cremoso, por exemplo).

A última informação importante que devo dividir com vocês é que eles NãO SOLTAM CERDAS!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

O kit veio em um estojo com quatro pincéis:

K01 – Kabuki topo reto

K02 – Kabuki redondo

K03 – Kabuki cônico

K04 – Kabuki chanfrado

Os pincéis são bons, foram entregues em 5 dias úteis (o que não é ruim) e são uma ótima opção para quem trabalha com isso e precisa de alguns pincéis a mais.

O único problema é que o espelhinho de dentro do estojo veio quebrado, mas tudo bem, acho que sobreviverei….. :)

O kit custa $23.50.

Com amor…………….Polly

e.l.f. Disney Collection for Walgreens: Ariel

Posted by on Jul 28, 2014 in Beauty Bargains, Reviews | 1 comment

 

Hi looooves!!!

I AM BACK and have a bunch of new products to share with you, starting with this lovely collection by e.l.f.

Have you seen this beautiful and affordable Disney Collection made by e.l.f. for selected Walgreens stores?

I first heard about it through my friend Thayna, from “On the Path to Beauty” blog and I fell in love instantaneously!

PhotoGrid_2014-07-24_23_52_01

The Ariel Collection is sooooooo beautiful, but by the time I found out about it and went to buy myself some things, most of it was already gone. So I bought what I was able to find at my local Walgreens.

  • Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Book Gift Set – Includes: 9 eye shadows/ 1 eyeshadow brush/ 2 bronzers/ 1 mini bronzer brush/ 1 mini lip color. The GORGEOUS packaging is made of hard cardboard and has a mirror as well as the step by step of TWO look ideas inside. The shadows are shimmery, except for one (Seashell) that has a matte finish with some super tiny glitter. The colors are BEAAAAAUUUUTIFUL!!  I used Urban Decay’s eye primer (as always) and the shadows lasted very decently all day (9 hours) without creasing and were easy to blend. In addition, they had good pigmentation (they weren’t the most pigmented shadows I’ve tried, but not the worst. I will say the pigmentation was very good for such a cheap product and some colors had better pigmentation than others . ($9.99)
  • Ardell Ariel Lash Kit – Includes 2 sets of eyelashes/ 1 lash adhesive. ($7.99)
  • Ariel Pencil Case ( I will use it to carry my brushes when I travel J ) ($6.99)

This limited edition collection is a great option for those who love to buy affordable makeup, that never had the chance (or didn’t feel like spending the money) to buy the Disney Collection by Sephora, or simply love to collect limited edition makeup like me!

There are e.l.f. products that I love and some not so much, I won’t lie to you, but this collection is definitely dear to my heart and I recommend it!

Lots of Love………………………Polly

EOS Hand Lotion in Berry Blossom

Posted by on May 8, 2014 in Beauty Bargains, Reviews | 1 comment

 

Hi Loves!

Today I have a very short review on this lotion.

The light pink, oval shape bottle is very cute and stylish and perfect to carry in your handbag or even your packet.

I love the light floral scent!

This lotion is fast-absorbing and non-greasy, leaves my hands nice, soft and moisturized for hours (4-5 hours, as long as I don’t wash my hands, obviously).

It’s a keeper! PhotoGrid_2014-05-07_21_58_53

******It cost $1.99 at Target (prices may vary at different drugstores).

‘Te Amo’ Lipstick by BH Cosmetics

Posted by on Apr 7, 2014 in Beauty Bargains, Reviews | 1 comment

Good morning!!

Today I’d like to talk about this pretty red lipstick that I bought because I loved its name… Yes, when I saw the name ‘Te Amo’ (I Love You) in Portuguese, I couldn’t resist it… Besides, I didn’t own any BH Cosmetics lipsticks and that was a good opportunity to try them out, so I bought two different ones.

PhotoGrid_2014-04-06_19_31_45

At times, the website’s product description doesn’t correspond accurately to the actual item, which is not the case here.  BH’s description of this lipstick on its website says that ‘Te Amo’ is a “true cherry red with a creamy finish” and THAT IT IS!

This lipstick is creamy and applies smoothly, but it dries up to a semi-matte finish that’s not too dry nor too creamy. It has good pigmentation and the stay power is good as well. I only had to touch it up about three hours later.

The best part of it is that it cost $3.95! YAY!

*****You can find it online at www.bhcosmetics.com.

Do you own any BH Cosmetics lipsticks? If so, what’s your favorite? I’d love to hear from you!!!

Lots of Love………Polly
