I got it a week ago and use it daily since,  and this foundation is not a hide in my house testers. So, here’s a list with my likes and dislikes:

The Perfect Accessories to Holiday Season – No.1: Blackberry Cases

Looking for Perfect Accessories for your Holiday Season Glam?

I’ve decided to share my favorite accessories for this season and offer you some infos on what I find to be the holidays season perfect accessories this year!

bb-pink2.jpg

This year my main focus is on Pink cuz is sooo on waves !!! But wait, not intentionally… I admit “the color of happiness” seemed to drown my brains in since I gave birth to a baby girl.

Although I avoid dressing my girl or me into “The Pink Lady/Girl “with all this hot pink accessories explosion… I admit though, my accessories are pinkish for most outfits!

My first post is on Blackberry Cases. If you possess the One BB or other Phone you love (I’m a 8900), you might as-well dress it for the party too!! You know will be close to your earrings this entire season! So, you can match it for ex!

As any chic accessory, your bb case must be special and if it shows off your style, will certainly bring you a plus to your public apparitions. Or make the perfect gift for the ladies you love! I prefer them simple, elegant and practical, celebs like them sassy. What about you?

Check out my picks from the ShopBlackberry.com ‘coming soon’ cases you might like…

Age-Reversing Makeup: L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation

Researching for a new foundation to try for my fair red skin undertone, I bumped into L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation. It contains vitamin C to fade discoloration and brighten skin, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and wrinkle-fighting ingredients such as retinol to treat and prevent lines.

L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift

I was looking for full coverage for camera-ready makeups for the holiday season. Have tones of work (we’re deep into a new holiday events org. project) and this will not have to show in my photos. :)  I’m in need for a liquid foundation that offers full coverage without settling into lines, so the anti-aging formula sounded perfect!

You know my facial skin likes L’Oreal Foundation, untill now my go-to foundation from L’oreal is the Accord Parfait (my review here)… I think my skin is retinol-compatible, as it can cause troubles for other skin types. As soon as I find it in a drugstore I’ll get the VL, let you know and review it for you!

Summer Reviews: Mineral Mix Foundation Powder by Senna Cosmetics

It’s been a while since I’m testing this cover and finish foundation in Light shade. Mineral Mix by Senna Cosmetics is a mineral powder foundation combines 2 foundation tones, 1 bronzer ( pressed mineral foundation powder in the lid) and 1 highlighter (a loose mineral foundation powder in the jar) which are color coordinated for each skin tone. As you will see in my photos there are two different textures you can play with.

My favorite is the highlighter for its silky smooth texture that glides onto the skin. It is created to be applied as base then deepen your color as needed with the darker pressed mineral foundation powder.

Summer Reviews: Senna A La Mode Lip Sync

Two weeks ago I took one look at the Lip Sync duo by Senna Cosmetics A La Mode and my heart went racing! A LA MODE is a “soft rose peach” lipstick paired with a “shimmering peach” gloss packed gorgeously in a LIP SYNC:

Senna Lip Sync

Senna Lip Sync is a 2-in-1 lipstick/ lipgloss combination product that can be worn a variety of ways! I love the convenience of having a lipstick on one end and a gloss on the other, in one sleek, elegant package in the full size (0.130z/3.6g and 0.21oz/6.4g).
The creamy silky like texture of the lipstick and the super moist gloss fell perfect on my dry tendency lips. Apply the lipstick alone for an evening matte lip look. Or you can swipe a touch of the formulated gloss over the lipstick to lighten the color and add that extra shine and sparkle. For a more natural look, wear the gloss alone. Both shades look great with or without a tan.
