Maxfactor mircale touch creamy blush review by www.tobelikealady.com

I know, I am late to the party. Party of cream blushes. My first experience of cream bushes started by purchasing Maxfaxtor miracle touch creamy blush in color 18 soft cardinal. It is a little bit intense pink, and on the fair skins, the red shades of it seem more.

I never stick to one range of colors for blushes, and one of my games is to see how the effect my skin and then give the point. I use it in different ways:
Under the powder blush, to make long lasting effect.
Cream blush only, in case I am in rash and just want to add a op of color to my face.

The cons: If your face is covered by pores, this creamy blush bring them on the spotlight. The reason is the the a bit of shine on creamy formula therefore you see how it works. For this matter I am so careful where to apply it on my cheeks; where there is not in the pores' territory. Another experience of mine is that when I apply it on top of the sunscreen or moisturizer it will disappear after two hours and I have to reapply that again and it is really annoying.

The joys I've had with Miracle touch creamy blush is applying by the finger. And this is a big pleasure in makeup world. Beside, it is so tiny and perfect size for travel makeup bag. I wish only it could last longer to become a number one pick for traveling, especially days are out and wouldn't like to spend much time to reapply your makeup. Finally, the finish is light and natural, like your own cheek has this color.

Skincare Basics

The title seems to be unimportant, basic, not advanced... The reality is a distinct concept. The concept of stepping stones to own a healthy skin. When we e say basic, it doesn't mean that we are not speaking about the crucial steps, it means the necessary phases you have to obey all the time. Item which must be accomplish necessarily for any age, any life style, financial status and all kind of climates. You can hopefully and definitely read this article and adapt it to your skin type and budget . Generally, any type of skin needs these basic parts of skincare in its routine. I am reminding you: "Face wash, Moisturizer, sun screen and eye cream". 

About the face wash, let me clear something at the beginning. Please, forget the myth which the face wash is only for oily skins or polluted days! There are so many choices for all skin types. Combination, dry, oily, normal... So you need to wash your face every single morning after getting up and every night before going to bed. I have played with so many different brands, first of all because I am addict to examine all of them, see the quality and assume the differences between them. But if you are not a beauty Blogger, Vlogger or junkie, just find your favorite one and enjoy that. these are what have used in a period of time, and they are absolutely perfect with a low price, for those who are on budget. yo can see the post here.

A part of trusted face washes 

Moisturizer, I have heard a million times that the oily skins doesn't need a moisturizer, moisturizers are produced for aiding the dry skins only, and blah, blah, blah... It is a bloody fake myth! Forget those shit. Look at your skin with a scientific point of view. you have only one face, one skin for rest of your life, so don't miss the skincare opportunities by non-scientific speeches. Oily skins are not hydrated skins, dry skins means less oil producing on the surface and combination means dry patches on the oily skin or vice versa.  
The amount of hydration is one the determinant scales to keep your skin tighter, younger and brighter. The first aid in order to prevent the wrinkles is to hydrate your skin. Because more moisture helps with producing more collagen underneath. And you know the rest of the story about the collagen. If no, I will write about it later. you can see two of them: the La Roche-Posay review which is inexpensive with a nice perfect quality, and the CLARINS review.

Clarins Moisturizer for oily skins

Sunscreen, In my opinion is the marvelous invention in skincare. It is easy to access for any budget and it fulfill multiple purposes in one period. Its daily defense function from sun and free radicals which can destroy skin's layers and is  mainly effective in anti-ageing prevention presents you a friendly support. These are from a complete post about my sunscreen favorites (face, eye and body) which still are in my Favorite list. The brands are Avene, Dermeden Paris and La Roche-Posay.

Sunblocks

Eye cream is other part of basic care, because the first signs of aging will appear around your eyes. The skin on that area is the thinnest skin, so sensitive and truly need aids more than the other parts. If you have puffy eyes, or like me dark circles, so no doubt to use an eye cream. In case, you are n't suffering from non of these, it is a smart idea that "Prevention is the Key". You haven't necessarily to use the most expensive one in the market, it is really important to use the eye cream on your budget CONSTANTLY. The eye cream reviews which may can help you find out the summarized information to choose out of thousands brands out there, are in order: the Loccitane review and you can find its website here, the Biotherm review and the official site of this brand is here, and CLARINS review at last. But as you see my blog address is the old one on some of the photos, I have recently customized it as www.tobelikealady.com so don't confuse.

Clarins Hydra matte for oilt skin review by tobelikealady.com

This is probably is the CLARINS Celebration year for my skin. Celebrating the best status ever by the miracle in the CLARINS pots and bottles that I believe in them. The first feeling is an endless happiness because I have found my trusted one. I have been in a fifty-fifty doubtful mood about any kind of brands around me for anti-aging purposes. Even the Caudali that you know It is a long time I am in touch with, or Eucerin, Loccitane and etc. But this guy is a unique magic.

Clarins Hydra matte for oilt skin review by tobelikealady.com

Each month I try one product of CLARINS which suits my skin's concerns well and every single time it incredibly surprises me. My crazy skin is fluctuating between the most dry desert on the earth to the most rich oil source in the world. Therefore, a fluid for mixed skin with a matte finish is too perfect to be real. I hope you can understand what I am talking about :) . I am talking about a Hydrating fluid for combination skins which absorbs in seconds.
After its function let's talk about the marketing things. I believe it is one of the most nostalgic packaging; The green blue-ish color on the ceramic expensive bottle give the customers an ultimate satisfaction of their purchase or may persuade them to keep the empty bottle for memories. I say the nostalgic because if you get back to the fashion and beauty magazines from 70th decade, you would find a various products with these color. Baking mixers, Cars, Finish powders and so many other ones.  In honor of the this beauty I must add that it smells as same as luxurious spa salons, and what else you may need before bed or start your busy day to make you calm and feel better.

Rock a Formal Day look!

rock a formal day look by tobelikealady.blogspot.com

Fashion is about breaking the rules, and finding the style you really are attached to is required to pass the borders. Try old pieces in a new combination. Sometimes, the materials, colors and patterns we never would knew, go well together; Beyond your imagination. One of my safe zones has been the over size shirts on the pencil skirts. As you have seen my previous post, I created this look, by having no exceed fabric falling in the the skirt. Everything tightly in place.

Nevertheless, I dared to experience my scary angles as a modern lady. As a formal look. As a daily work look. What happened finally? I reached a nice girly look. what can effect your mood completely for starting a bored business day. I believe in the power of clothes. What you wear is an efficient as what you take in for your energy level. The roughed satin fabric is the bell that rings the happiness and self confidence to feel beautiful. I know, there are thousands of other sides you need to work on to lift your mood. But the my point is that start from the easiest you can do it in a minute. I bought this top on a vendor shop with a really inexpensive price. So, why not try my trick. Match a bright happy color with your formal pencil skirt for an official day.

Being Flawless In Variation

One of the most classiest look is the classic pencil skirt with a long sleeves shirt. The pencil skirts are so fun and functional for both type of body shapes; the curvy bodies and also for those who are thin and doesn't have visible curves. Because the cut and how it fits on the hips and thighs are caused you to be seemed with defined lines and shows your body's borders. The top is by Esprite about two years ago, so I am not sure if it is still available. Skirt is a vintage one. My point by coming up the old pieces in closet is that you just need to find the way you can match the thing together. Style is not about everyday shopping. It is about finding the way to wear them properly.

As you see I have matched a see through silk like fabric blouse and a standard length pencil skirt. As you see the top is a buttoned-up shirts collar; the last said sentence is quite short but quite enough to create a formal look.

In the next shots, we tried to add some sexy touches to the same look. The makeup hasn't changed. I just left the collars unbuttoned. you can wear a nice small size necklaces but I tried this beautiful silk scarf. The skirt is from the mini version of the same patterns. Difference between the material and a bit of shorter length of skirt have changed the whole concept. You can't imagine how the smart tiny variation will offer a new world.The makeup, photos and styling the clothes are done by myself.

Body, Soft Body by NIVEA

Body Cream! Okay, Right. Body cream! I need it. I use the body lotions or cream after the shower. Different brands, HighEnds to Drugstore. From the Cheap new ones to the famous expensive pots. But the NIVEA is not my favorite brand. I have never been a big fan of its body care, skin care and especially the lip balms! I hate the lip balms by NIVEA or heavy greasy hand creams!
Have your ever seen this huge amount of hate? I have experienced that because I hardly was happy with the products.
Nivea Happy time body cream review by tobelikealady.blogspot.com
Hydra IQ
I am still in the same mood, and have no future plan to try others; Anyhow, I want to talk about a luck which came to me few month ago by NIVEA or perhaps, a luck went to the NIVEA's fate . A day that was tired to search for and was out of a lotion I bought this bottle. In that moment I had no idea how much I would be satisfied with my skin! This body cream absorbs as fast as light speed and gives you a smooth body which is painfully out of my vision. A light orange scent while you are massaging your body with the white liquid!


The Product is named Body lotion Happy time, with Hydra IQ , Orange Scent and I now can express my happiness and say it is the first time entire my life that I love Nivea; The best part is when you assume that it does what it claims. As it is mentioned the product's description on the website:

 Looking for a Pleasantly scented body lotion?
Enjoy NIVEA® Happy Time Body Lotion!
  • The delicate Orange scent inspires your senses for a long-lasting, feel-good sensation

bronze Glow VS review by Tobelikealady.Blogspot.com

If you are at the door, ready to go to the party or a fancy date night with your partner, and suddenly, remember your legs are way more paled than what you have imagined! Don't panic please just capture this feeling and the next time when your hanging around your local mall, enter the Victoria Secret Store and see the bronzer lotions, cream and etc. one of those which is really easy to use, smells nice and beautiful but not over powerful, have a tiny bit of shimmer in it; Also, doesn't need to wait hours to reach the color is this beauty by VS; Secret Charm Honeysuckle and Jasmine. In case you have no idea about these two flowers, they are these below ones The only disappointing one is that this product is discontinued:

Jasmin Flower


Honeysuckle flower


The smell is floral but warm and sexy. Relaxing and what you need exactly to be felt as you are are sitting beside your VIP. The combination of these two scents is a wonderful result which takes you to the wonderland.
bronze Glow VS review by Tobelikealady.Blogspot.com

 I always apply that with bare hands because the other interesting point about this magic lotion is that you wouldn't own orange, brown shimmery palms at last!
It is called Bronze Glow Body Lotion. I have tried so many Glow or sun kissed labeled products but at the end they turned my skin into too much color and shimmer; in an unnatural color. But the positive side of this product is its sheer effect on skin.

Drugstore mascaras by tobelikealady.blogspot.com
The applicators

I was wondering if affordable mascaras can give me extension, volume and a deep black shade! I usually, don't report my final idea about the cosmetic or skincare products, because I believe that you need to examine them in different condition to realize material's sophistication and quality.
After a long time playing around these lash soldiers I am ready to tell you, just save your money for other items and purchase your essential, glamorous mascara from drug stores. Because by the half price of one department store mascara you can buy all these.

Express Falsies Washable

In case you need a huge amount of effortless volume and easy washing off just grab the Maybeline Volume Express Falsies. You can check the price in Ulta or Amazan.
But in summer days, long days, a party which I need to keep everything in place I prefer the waterproof version of the same mascara. I can't tell you how I am in love with this guy.

Drugstore mascaras by tobelikealady.blogspot.com
Four of them

Another obsession is Maxfactor 2000 Calorie Dramatic Volume, it is washable, and even without eyeliner it makes you  huge eye with super black color, It is about $10 in Amazon, and the my search in boots for you ended in another version of Dramatic Volume that has a small difference in packaging. I'd had the Boots version many years ago, maybe when I was eighteen.

MaxFacor

The last suggestion of mine, is baby and obviously in dark color as you know, because I never apply another color on my lashes. What makes this baby special and different from two other washable ones, is the natural finish of it. a bit of volume but in a natural beautiful way and it doesn't drop down at all.
