FINAL DAY: QUOTE CHALLENGE #MINDBLOWING QUOTE & MAKEUP TRANSFORMATION from my fave movie, Cloud Atlas

Hey beautifuls! I am so sad that this challenge has come to an end… But I save the best quote for the last. This quote is from my favorite movie EVER: Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks, James D’Arcy, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Hugo Weaving… Just all star cast members. Outstanding in every way. It is a 3 hour movie but I loved every minute of it. It’s from the best selling novel with the same title and this was nominated for Oscar I believe or Golden Globe, something like that. The makeup in this movie is INSANE!

Check out Halle Berry as a Chinese DOCTOR! WTF?

that's halle berry!!
that’s halle berry!!

Hugo Weaving as a woman. LOL. He played a scary woman (top right) and him as a Korean (bottom left)

The cast went on their days with filming and they had no idea who is playing what during the scene because the makeup artist didn’t tell them what characters are they playing. LOL.

They criticised this as well, they were like how come you put white actors as Korean. Why not cast a Korean actor? Well, fuck you. If you think like that, it means you didn’t even watch the movie because that’s kind of the whole point of the movie… that everything is connected, everyone you meet in life can reflect your past, present and future through reincarnations. So of course they’re going to use the same actors are you freaking kidding me? Best of all, guys, the quotes in this movie are to die for!

My favorite is this one:

Check that out, by each crime and every kindness we birth our future. Isn’t it so true, you guys? Our lives are not our own, we are bound to others. We don’t live on our own we need to be social, we need to mingle and blend in as a society and what kind of future do we want? Do we want a civilised one without any racism, with equality for both men and women, or do we want chaos and filled with hatred? WE have the power to change our future, we have the power to lead and to take charge.

Post a Quote a Day Challenge: DAY 2

post-a-quote-challenge

Hi gorgeous beauty enthusiasts. My day 2 quote is from my favorite Disney Character, Mulan. She is by far the best, the most kick ass out of those prissy Disney princesses, yea, I’m talking to you, Aurora, freaking wake up and make yourself useful. Damn!

Anyway, Mulan taught me to be myself, to stay true to who you are and never give up while kicking ass on the way to awesomeness!

The quote that sticks to me is this one.

Garnier BB Cream Oil Free: REVIEW

Hey Everyone, how are you? I hope you lovelies are doing fantastic.

I have been meaning to review this product for a long time now, it’s the Garnier BB cream Oil Free for Combination to Oily skin. Which is unfortunately my skin type. It’s very annoying to have oily skin, especially extremely oily like mine. I picked this up at Priceline when they have a sale goin on. They always do, so, never buy full price for anything there.

I bought mine in the shade Medium. There are only 2 shades, Light and Medium.

Here’s a swatch for you guys. I’m in the shade NC42 in MAC foundation, so this one I thought will be too light for me, but it matches perfectly.

Okay, so this product is not like your typical bb cream where it’s a bit balmy, that’s what the b stands for in bb cream, beauty balm. Mostly bb creams have thicker consistency and not as runny as this one but when you put it on your face it has the same finish as let’s say the urban decay or the stila bb cream.

look how runny!

What do I think of this product?

It did give me what it claims though, which are:

Instantly*:

  • gives a luminous matte finish for 88.1% of women.
  • Pores are less visible for 84.7% of women.
  • Imperfections (redness, spots, acne marks…) are minimised for 76.3% of women.

Completely agree you guys, this product does all of the things above instantly and it also said on the website:
After 4 weeks** of using:

  • Skin is less oily.
  • Appearance of pores is minimised.
  • Imperfections are visibly reduced.
  • Skin is more radiant.

So, I will continue to use this product for 4 weeks but after it’s empty I don’t think I will repurchase it because I would wanna move on to try on different products and I don’t like the feeling of luminous matte finish. I want a complete matte finish as I am very extremely oil. BUT if you are going for that luminous finish and you are not as oily as me, this product might be good for you. It’s very affordable, you guys so, no harm in trying. Sadly, there’s only 2 shades, so it’s pretty limited for people with darker skin tone. So, that’s the only con to this product.

I hope you find this review helpful, please give this a thumbs up if you enjoy it and follow me for more posts! thank you so very much for reading…and I will catch up with you guys later.
