Online Order Review

Hey Guys,

Sorry I have been a bit MIA. I am adjusting to caring for a newborn lol. It’s been 6 years since I have done this, I totally forgot how the sleepless nights felt -_-. Anyway I took a minute today toย take photos of the items that arrived in the mail last week.
image
image
I actually was not very fond of the Precision Powder Brush, it looks and feels way to much like the Dose of Colors Setting Powder Brush, which I already have. Plus I don’t like to use such a small flat brush to set my under eyes. My ideal under eye setting brush is the Charlotte Tilbury Powder and Sculpt Brush, or the Kat Von D Shade+Light Contour Brush, both are softer, fluffier, not too dense, and don’t pack on too much powder. I prefer to use my Dose of Colors Setting Brush for highlighting.
image
Next up is the Setting Powder Brush, which again I didn’t love because I don’t like a pointy tipped powder brush to set my entire face with. I prefer them round or completely flat. The bristles feel wonderful but the shape is not one that I like.
imageI was so excited about these brushes but it seems like I might have to return both. -_-. It is VERY seldom that I return products I buy, because I will tell myself any lie to keep a product that I DON’T need. But when I really don’t like something, or realize that I seriously won’t make any use out of it, it has to go back or I will give it to my sisters.
image
I tried this Lock-It Concealer Creme and on a scale of 1-10 I give it a 7. It is rich and creamy in texture like it says, and full coverage but…it creases, it is not 24-hour wear like it says it is, and the tones are a bit too yellow for me. I like a little bit of peachy pink in my concealers.
image
image
Another item that I was super excited about trying that I again didn’t LOVE, (this whole order was kinda of a fail lol) is the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer.
imageSmells wonderful, is moisturizing, radiant, and is a much better color than Kat Von D’s, but…it’s NOT crease free like it says. I don’t think either one of these concealers compare to MAC Pro-Longwear.
imageI LOVE, LOVE, LOVEย this Lock-It Setting Powder.
image
It is like SILK, and has this amazing Satin glow to it when applied. I have been setting my under eyes with it and I think it’s sooooo much better than the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder that everyone raves about.
image
That’s if for todays post, I took 10 breaks to put the pacifier in my daughters mouth while writing this lol.

    Hi Anyut!
    How would you use this/compare this to the Charlotte Tilbury flawless pressed powder? Has the Lock-It powder replaced it or do you use them in different places? Thanks!

    1. anyut says:

      Hi love, so I actually use both interchangibly. The main difference other than one being loose and the other being a compact is that Kat Von D has a sheen to it. But both are wonderful!

Postpartum Update.

It has been 17 days since I had my C-Section and I am down 25lbs. Iย was 158lbs the day that I went in for my surgery, and now I am 133lbs. I have not been working out at all, I might have walked 1 or 2 days for 30 mins since I have been home. Healthy eating is what it’s all about, and hopefully working out soon! My goal weight is 118lbs so I still have about 14 more lbs to lose.ย #dedication.

I too am currently “under construction” lol. Since giving birth 10 days ago I am already down 20 lbs. I have 18 more to go, and I’m thinking I need about 20 more days :). No strenuous exercising just light walking and very healthy eating. Can’t wait to start exercising though!

        If you don’t mind me asking, why c-section? This is purely out of curiosity as I know there are pros and cons for both c-section and vaginal, and still debating which one I would go for!

        1. anyut says:

          I don’t mind. 7 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter I watched a video of both natural labor and a C-Section with my husband. We both got disgusted of natural labor and so we decided I should get a C-section. I was very happy with my decision be first time around and even happier the second time. I recovered very well with both.

Product Review

Hey guys,

I purchased this Phytopiage Sublime After Sun Hair & Body Oil (that’s a hell of a name) online based on the reviews, and the purpose it serves. Now that I have lightened my hair a little I need to take care of it a bit more than I did when I had black hair. This means, not tying it up too messy in order to prevent breakage, and not going out into the sun without protection so that I don’t dry it up. So basically I was looking for a product that would hydrate my hair after sun exposure, and keep it from becoming crispy :).
image
I put a small amount in my hair after I have spent a few hours out in the sun. On days that I am going to wash my hair or go get a blow dry I will put an abundant amount in my hair leave it in for an hour or 2 then wash it. The product is multi-purpose so you can also use it for your body. I have yet to do that because it doesn’t really have a scent so I prefer to just use it on my hair. I like to put oils on my body that actually smell nice. Anyone who has light hair really needs to understand the importance of keeping their hair hydrated.
XoXo,
Anyut

Becca Collaboration W/ Jaclyn Hill

I was so excited to get this palette even though I don’t like the 3 blush colors. I love Jaclyn Hill so much I had to support. Plus the packaging as too cute to pass on. Oh and it’s limited edition, and we all know how I feel about anything that’s limited -_-.

    Hi love, I’ve been following your amazing blog for awhile now and I love your input on all things from beauty to lifestyle. I really appreciate your honesty and “realist” outlook. Keeping that in mind, I was wondering what your outlook is on hair colouring during pregnancy and if there’s any advice you can give to a first time mommy-to-be . Also, if there are any great pregnancy secrets you can share I would very much appreciate it, given the fact that’s I’m still in the early stages of the first trimester and have yet to learn a lot!

    Thanks again,

    Suzanna

    P.S. Congratulations on your new baby girl Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy, loving life!

      Hi Suzanna,

      Thank you, and congratulations to you as well. To be honest I colored my hair with both my pregnancies, I also ate sushi (didn’t over-do though), and drank coffee, basically I didn’t restrict myself from anything but I kept it all in moderation. Being pregnant is tough enough as it is (for me it was at least) so try to enjoy some of the few perks that come along with it lol. If you have any other specific questions please let me know I will happily answer them for u. ๐Ÿ™‚ oh and if there is any real advice I can give any first time mommy, it would be to raise your baby with a strict schedule. I am a VERY firm believer in following a particular routine. Also try reading What to Expect When Your Expecting and then What to Expect the First Year. I loved both those books.

        Thanks for your prompt response, I too agree that almost everything is acceptable in moderation. I have already started reading the What to Expect book and I’m liking it so far. โ˜บ๏ธ
        I love the bassinet you have chosen for your sweet baby; different, classic and gorgeous!

Anastasia Modern Renaissance

Good Morning,

I am sure you all have seen this palette everywhere on Instagram, YouTube, and in stores. I picked mine up from Naimies a few weeks ago without even looking at the colors. I later realized I didn’t really love the colors, or the fact that the shadows are really dusty.
image
I think all in all I have used 3 colors, 1 of which I already have as an individual shadow (burnt orange).
image
image
I had some great stuff arrive in them mail yesterday but I will post them once I am done reviewing all the new stuff I got in the past month.
XoXo,
Anyut
