Almay Wake Up™ Hydrating Makeup


Almay Wake Up™ Hydrating Makeup

Almay has taken mineral foundation to the next level using an innovative process that infuses encapsulated water in a luxurious loose powder. The result is instantly glowing, hydrated skin with an amazing cooling sensation.

This foundation comes in 5 shades:

-- Ivory
-- Buff
-- Naked
-- Neutral
-- Beige


Almay Wake Up Makeup mineral loose powder definitely makes me look "awake" in the morning.
It provides medium coverage.
It brightens up my face and leaves a glowing feel.
One of my favorite parts? It feels refreshing.
The encapsulated water provides a cooling sensation to my skin when I apply it.
It also has SPF 13 that protects against uv rays.

It comes with a foundation brush that fits in the cap for easy storage and light, mess-free travel.


I got this in NAKED. It's a perfect match for my medium-toned skin.
As you can see, it has shimmer in the actual powder which makes you think that it will make your skin shiny and sparkly.
However, it leaves my skin fresh and dewy.


Being honest, this product is on of the best powder foundations I've tried so far.
I give it a 5 out of 5.

Victoria's Secret -- BEAUTY RUSH Luminous Shadow

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I only wear eye shadows on special occasions.
I feel like it's too much if I include a smokey eye in my everyday makeup for school so I stick with the neutral look.

Lately though, I've been having fun experimenting with different eye looks.
Now that I only have less than 2 months left of school, I have a lot of senior events coming up like Senior Awards Night, Pre-Prom Fashion Show, PROM, and of course, Graduation. :D


Victoria's Secret BEAUTY RUSH Luminous Shadows$4.25 each

I've been enjoying trying these Beauty Rush eyeshadows.
I think I've created atleast 5 looks using these products.
I like all the fun colors.
It's super pigmented which is one of the things I love about it.
It also has a built-in sponge applicator, but I still use my brush to even it out.
I can bring it with me anywhere I go.


These are the names of the colors that I got:

1. Brown To Earth -- a dark brown color
2. Copper -- an orange-y, coral shade
3. After Midnight -- a purple-ish, blue color
4. Petal To The Metal -- a fuchsia, lavender color
5. Emerald City -- a light shade of jade

My favorite colors are Emerald City and After Midnight.
After Midnight works great for a smokey eye night look.
And Emerald City is perfect for a light day look.


Here is a swatch of each of the colors.

As you guys can see, they're all very pigmented.
It also has shimmer, perfect for a formal look.
I used the built-in sponge applicator for these swatches but I highly recommend using an eyeshadow brush afterwards to spread it throughout your eyelids.


I give this eyeshadow a 3.5 out of 5.

Have you ever tried the Victoria's Secret BEAUTY RUSH Luminous Shadows? How did you like them?

Congratulations to Mimi, Kat, and Olivia for winning my Shoetopia Giveaway! I'll be emailing you shortly. :D

Go 360° Clean offers a complete range of four expertly formulated, high-foam cleansers that are perfectly calibrated to perform with the Scrublet™. The Deep Facial Cleanser is a deep-cleaning, high-foam gel, which unclogs pores as it removes oil, dirt and makeup. With notes of naranji, orange flower and mint for a refreshing fragrance and feel on skin, the gel formula helps reduce oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes with its deep cleaning, pore-by-pore action. Oil-Free.

Deeply cleans skin and unclogs -- pore by pore. Removes all traces of oil, dirt, and makeup. Pores look visibly smaller.


I got this a couple of months ago.I've heard a lot of good things about this product so I was really excited to try it out.
This product really makes my skin feel super clean.
The smell is a bit too perfume-y.
It might be too much for people who are sensitive to smell but I personally don't mind it.
After using this for a period of time, my skin did start to feel a teensy bit dry so I just apply moisturizer afterwards.

A lot of people has said that it reduces their breakouts, however, I can't say the same.
I still have the same amount of breakouts since I started using this cleanser BUT it does dry it out really fast which is a plus.
Whenever I get new pimples, I just scrub it with the scrubber and the cleanser and it dries immediately.


I love the little scrubber that comes with the bottle.
It's a great makeup remover. It doesn't leave any trace of mascara in my under eye and and it scrubs all of my concealer off.
You can also use this scrubber with any other acne cleansers. It works just as well.
I love how you get a new one every time you purchase a new bottle.

Overall, I gives this product a 4 out of 5.
