Mario Badescu Skincare Products Review (cleansers, toner, mask, spot treatments)

After watching a bunch of videos on Youtube about how amazing Mario Badescu skincare is i had to try it. I have been using Mario Badescu for about a year now. The first thing i bought was the "acne kit (click here to see)" that came with 3 products. Then i fell in love and bought the other stuff i have! I have honestly fell in love with everything he has, and its so cheap! so let begin!!!

Enzyme Cleansing gel 

This cleanizing gel is very different because its a gel not just a regular cleanser.
This cleanser claims is a refreshing, non-foaming gel that washes away makeup and surface debris. Rejuvenates dull skin with papaya extract, an alpha hydroxy acid that promotes exfoltiation and prevents pore-clogging build up.
I love this because it does wash away makeup, and after you wash your face it feels so clean and brand new. The alpha hydroxy acid exfoliates your skin so you skin is soft and brand new, and you do need to exfoliate a few times a week. So if you use this a few times a week this will be perfect! but you can use this everyday and it wont over exfoliate at all! i love this smel of this too! oh my goshhh, i cant explain hat it smells like but it sells so good!
Also, i use this a few times a week, just because i tryed to use this with my clarasonic but it doesn't work because its a gel and doesn't foam. And for me i feel like a foaming cleaner works best with the clarasonic!

Special Cucumber lotion

This says its a lotion, but this is a toner. its for only OILY SKIN! (idk why they call it a lotion) but i bought this because cucumber helps with calming and soothing the skin, and also helping with redness. This toner claims that it fights against any build-up and bacteria that can cause acne. it also provides pore tightening and antiseptic deep cleansing.
i love this because it literally takes everything off of your face after you wash your face. You may think you get everything off when you wash your face, but when you use this it takes off dirt that you thought you got off. Its amazing! and the smell of this is so good!
but i do wanna say that this has a little bit of alcohol in it, which is usually bad and what you don't want in a toner, but i don't see any problems with it and my skin.

Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

This spray i cant live without! this is not a makeup setting spray because it has no ingredients that does that. But what i use this for is when I'm done with my makeup i spray this all over my face so it will get rid of that powdery look. Also, i use in through out the day when i just feel hot and sweaty, i just spray this on my face and the coldness and the amazing smell makes that feeling go away. Also this is all natural al organic which i love! and it just smells like rose water, i cant get enough of the smell! also, aloe helps to sooth and calm skin, so if you have any redness or problems this will help!

Silver Powder

When i was at Ulta i was confused by this product, so i had one of the employees explain it to me. To use this product you need to wet a cotton pad and dip it in there and then it will turn into a thick paste. This helps to unclog pores and help with the T-Zone. It will literally pull dirt and blackheads, and clogged pores out. Its kinda gross! but hey you don't want that stuff in your skin! you should use this 3-4 times a week to get the maximum results. And i can say this really works! you leave it on for 10 min ( I do 15 min just because ha) but after that i put on those nose strips and that will pul everything out. Because the Silver Powder will pull everything to the surface. This is a miracle product! if you have clogged pores get this! and it last forever! I've had this for about a year and i use it multiple times a week, and im almost out :(

Whitening mask

This mask i got because i have a little acne scarring and this is said to lighten any dark spots on skin and also helps with inflamed skin. This stuff smells so good! it smells like roses! but this is a THICK paste. So you apply to face and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Also, with this product you do need to use it 2-3 times a week to have it work. and yes it does work! it has lightening my acne scarring an also it makes my skin soft and brand new! i love this product and will re-purchase when this is gone! I've had this for about a year and in not even close to finishing it!

Drying lotion
Now this stuff, where do i begin! this is an absluote miracle in a bottle! im at the very end of mine but this is what its suppost to look like..
As you ca see there is a top brown layer and a bottom pink layer. With this product you DO NO SHAKE IT! you just get a q-tip and go straight in and touch the pink and pull out, then apply to a pimple. The top layer is Salicylic acid, which fights off acne. And the pink is calamine to help dry out the pimple.  You leave it over night and i swear when you wake up and wash it out, your pimple will be GONE! this stuff is absolutely the best product i have ever tried! this i've had for a little over a year and i just ran out (because everyone in my family uses this!) ahah

Buffering lotion

The buffering lotion is a very runny, liquidly product. Its used for cystic acne. Cystic acne is when a pimple doesn't come to a head and just is a ball under your skin. Its very painful and thank god i don't have them anymore! but every once in a while i will get one and the first thing i do is put this on it! this product absorbs into your skin and will dry up anything underneath. I put this on for about 2-3 nights and the cystic pimple will be about gone! which is a miracle becasue if i didn't use this product it would take 1-2 WEEKS! so this stuff is my life saver when i have those type of pimples! if you have cystic acne you need this in your life!
Drying Cream

 This product is for people who have those annoying bumps on your face, but there not pimples or black heads just skin colored bumps. This product is used for under your makeup because it will also act as a concealer, because it covers them! i get those annoying bumps on my forehead and my chin area, and if i use this for a week straight they will be gone! it smells kinda weird but that'll go away when you apply it! but this stuff just dries them up and helps to conceal then for the day (which i love! less concealer) this stuff has lasted my so long! because you only need a little because it spread a lot! if you have those annoying bumps and don't know how to get rid of them you need to try this! its a miracle!

Review: L'oreal Voluminous False Fibers Lashes

I bought this Mascara a few days ago, because i asked on instagram on what drugstore mascara people loved. And many said the L'oreal Voluminous, but there was like 10 different kinds! so i went with this one because it said "fibers". Which in my head meant the fibers will build up on my lashes to make them longer.....and i was right!

MY OPINION: Best mascara i have tried! and I've tried plenty at drugstore and plenty of High end mascara (too faced, benefit, and smashbox) and this one is by far the best i have ever used!
it literally build fibers on top of your lashes and makes them super long! and thats what i want in a mascara.
This mascara is also on $7.99! which is super cheap for an amazing mascara!

       Love the gold tube too! :)

    Looks like the soft bristles, but its actually the hard plastic bristles.
   Before ^                         ^ After one coat
 Top row: now mascara
Bottom row: one coat of mascara
(Dont mind my not done eyebrows haha!)

Also, one coat is enough! i usually do like 3 coats of different mascaras to get the results i want, but honestly i only do one coat and don't use another mascara! which is amazing to me, because I'm a mascara girl, that packs on mascara! 
so if you want amazing lashes, get this! i promise you will love it!!

September IPSY Bag (Classic Beauty)

First i want to say that IPSY this month was all messed up. I went up to the 13th with no email about the bag, or the tracking information. Which they usually give out on the 10th, and usually get my bag by the 13th. So i don't know what was up with this month. 

Sign up for free here! $10 a month for a bag of makeup/hair/skincare products! 


1. Em cosmetics Sample Eyeshadows And Blush

Em cosmetics, if you don't already know, is the makeup brand that Michelle Phan has made. Michelle phan is also the creator of IPSY. So this month i got these samples of one blush and three eyeshadows. And let me just say that samples of makeup on cardboard is HORRIBLE! no matter what kind of makeup they just don't have good pigmenetation. The only thing that slightly shows up is the blush. Thats why i didn't even swatch and take pictures because you literally cant see anything on my hand. Its horrible and there no color or anything. Just a bad idea and a waste of money for them to even make this sample. 

2. John Frieda Full repair shampoo and conditioner 

when i first saw these i wasnt excited at all, i mean im the tyep of girl that has certain shampoo and conditioner from sally's that i stick too. So i will not even use these. Ill probably give these to my sister or mom. I just don't think this was a good product for me, it might be to some other girls. i just was mad haha. BUTTTTT they are a very good sample size (1.05f FL oz) they do smell good tho!

3. NYX eyeshadow in Charcoal

I love NYX cosmetics; from there foundations, concealers, blushes , lipsticks, and there eyeshadows.
This is a full sized product so im happy with that i just dont really care for the color. I mean yes i will use it but its not one of those eyeshadows you can wear everyday. So this will get little use by me, but i stil think its a beautiful color! its very shimmery and very creamy!

4. Starlooks Black eyeliner pencil in obsidian

this is a very creamy and very black eyeliner, that i will use for my water line. But i've gotten so many of these from ipsy bags, and i still have those! so i guess i will just add this to my collection! plus these take forever to use up!

5.Elizabeth mott mascara "its so big"

Ive never heard of Elizabeth mott cosmetics so i'm excited to try a different brand. I've just gotten so many little mascaras in my makeup collection from ipsy and i'm still trying al those out. But i'm excited to try these mascara because it seems to look very volumizing!
just nothing to exciting!

MY OPINION ON THIS MONTHS BAG: i LOVE the bag. Its probably the most expensive feeling bag i have gotten in the past 2 years! its very think and i love the pattern. For the products i was excited about ANYTHING! i've gotten a bunch of pencil eyeliners from them, i've gotten even more mascaras from ipsy, and the nyx eyeshadow was okay not a color i will se alot. And for the the shampoo and conditioner i bet someone would love that i just don't care for that stuff, because i use special shampoo and conditioner for my hair. so overall i hated this month! and i haven't really hated a bag so far, and this one I HATE!

Sephora Perfecting Coverage Concealer Review (on sale!)

(In direct sunlight ). Concealer is on the left. 
 This is sephora Perfecting Coverage concealer. I bought this at my local sephora an it was on sale. And I'm a concealer junkie, so I couldn't pass it up! I chose the color light, because I like the bright under eye look. The total came out to $7! And from my first impression this morning I'm already in love! It's not to thin an not to thick, it does cover amazing! I gives the most prefect airbrush  look after too! Which is always a plus! 
I would say this is gonna be my new favorite and go to concealer. So if you have a chance to go to your local species go and get it for cheap! 
It's well worth the $7 and I would even buy this for the regular piece at $18!
