Review: Missha Cosmetics - Time Revolution White Cure Real Expert Serum

Today I get to share with you Missha Cosmetic's Time Revolution White Cure Real Expert Serum, which I received for review purposes.  MISSHA Cosmetics is a Korean brand that appeared in the US market back in 2009.  They carry a wide range of beauty products: lipsticks, nail polish, BB cream, blush, etc.

The Time Revolution White Cure Real Expert Serum is a highly concentrated brightening serum which improves dark spots and pigmentation in the skin by controlling the creation, transition and the expansion of melanin formation.  

It has active ingredients which absorb quickly to improve the dull complexion and protect your skin.  It contains Neo White LP, White-Cure, and a Noble Prize winning Fullereness for blemish care.  Fermented Rice Water that provides whitening benefits for pure, luminous skin.  20% White Flower Extracts of 7 different kinds of flowers: Rose, Freesia, Edelweiss, Jasmine, Lily, Iris, and Lotus; which moisturizes and relieves your stressed out skin.

It has a press down pump.  Not a lot of product is needed to apply upon your face.  One pump is enough or half a pump.  

The above was a one pump press.  It's more of a gel like substance than a lotion to me.

They suggest that you should apply this serum after toner and eye cream, and before lotion.  It has a mild floral scent, which reminds me of some lotions from Nivea, Jergens, and such that I have used.  It applied and absorbed very quickly into my skin.  It didn't leave a sticky greasy sort of residue on my face and left it feeling moisturized.  My love and I started using it for a week now.  We have noticed some slight changes like scars that have lighten up a bit.  Can't wait to see the more drastic changes over time.

The Time Revolution White Cure Real Expert Serum cost $34.99, but is currently on sale for $24.49; the bottle size is 40ml.  There is also a set that is available for purchase:
Time Revolution White Cure NW Special Set II:

  • Super Essential Toner 150ml
  • Super Radiance Lotion 130ml
  • Blanc Control Cream 50ml
  • Super Essential Toner 30ml
  • Super Radiance Lotion 30ml
  • Real Expert Serum 7ml*
  • Blanc Control Cream 10ml
The set includes the above products listed and goes for $100.  May seem pricey but you get several items, and it wouldn't bother you if you are into your skin care products.

Review: Super Black Lacquers - Dusted

I am super excited to share with you another one of Super Black Lacquer's latest nail polishes, Dusted.  This nail polish was received for review purposes.  Each Super Black Lacquer bottles are 18ml/.61 fl oz, and cost $12 a piece.  They are the Big 4-FREE, which means no Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, or Formaldehyde resin.  Not to mention ND is a super sweetie!

The Super Black Lacquers bottle shapes are one of my faves, most of you have seen me talking about this before.  It just makes it so much easier to store and fit them inside a drawer.  Just has a lot more space. 

You could get Dusted by itself for $12 or inside the Summer Box Set 2013 for $55.  The box set has 4 other nail polishes: Blitz, Cannibal, Plip, and Weird Girl.

Dusted has to be one of my favorites from the Summer Box Set!  It is a blueish-purple base color that shines out a sea-green shimmer.  It has a semi-matte finish to it, and if you wanted all the extra shimmer to shine through toss on a top coat.  It is a tad sheer: opacity within three coats.  It applied very smoothly for me and had a decent dry time.  In the picture I used a top coat to show the shimmer more but this looks gorgeous without a top coat as well in its semi-matte finish!

Here are some ways to stay in touch with SBL:

What do you think of Dusted?  Have you picked up an SBL polish yet?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you all have a wonderful stress-free day!!

Review: Super Black Lacquers - Weird Girl

Awhile ago Natalie Dee, the owner of Super Black Lacquers, released the Summer shades in a box set.  She was kind enough to send me it for review purposes.  I thought it would be best to show one nail polish at a time.  Sort of like a tease!  I will show you a picture of the box set later on in this post.

So today I decided to show you an odd one of the bunch, called Weird Girl.

Each Super Black Lacquer bottles are 18ml/.61 fl oz, and cost $12 a piece.  They are the Big 4-FREE, which means no Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, or Formaldehyde resin.  Not to mention ND is a super sweetie!

Review: Maquillage Blvd. - Vibrant Thang

Today on my blog I have one of Maquillage Blvd. nail polishes to show you, called Vibrant Thang.  Maquillage Blvd. debuted on March 1, 2013 with 16 wonderful 3-free shades of nail polish.  Maquillage [MAC-kee-YAHJ] Blvd. was named for an American cosmetic brand that was best noted for it's French origin and style.

Vibrant Thang is maroon with small pink particles in it for shimmer.

When I applied the nail polish I didn't really notice that pink shimmer.  It looked more creamy in person.  But at certain angles, as you can see, you can catch a glimpse of it sneaking through.

I was simply amazed by how the nail polish glided on smoothly, and it didn't take really long for it to dry.  The swatch pictures were two coats.

Each of Maquillage Blvd polishes are $10 a piece for .5 fl oz bottle.  To keep in touch with them:
