TooFaced #NOFILTER Selfie Palette

Today is my birthday and I am celebrating with the new Selfie Palette by TooFaced! I’ve had this palette since it’s release and have been using it religiously and now I want to share it with you! TooFaced released a new palette for Summer 2015 that comes with 3 light filtering photo-enhancing powders that claim to take you to selfie perfection. TooFaced is always on the leading edge of makeup and beauty trends. The #NOFILTER Selfie Palette wants to help you break necks on Instagram. The palette itself comes in an easy to carry light weight cardboard case that can easily be stored in your purse for on the go photo touch-ups. 

Here is an up close look:


The powders are very fine and feel very silky. Surprisingly there is no fall out. I was apprehensive about carrying it around in my purse thinking that the fall out would ruin the inside of my makeup bag (which I am very sensitive too) but there is literally none. It really clings to your brush and blends into your skin without leaving a horrible mess. So it is great for on the go selfie taking!

Although this is a universal palette, it will look different on different skin tones and honestly, you may like the way it looks on your girlfriend more than you do on yourself. For most people, mixing the shades from the palette together is going to be the best bet but none-the-less, you will still look amazing! I’ve tried all 3 shades and I love all of them but for different parts of my face. In my photo and video for this blog post, I used the palette and I think it really looks amazing! Since I try to take a selfie a day, I’ve used it quite often in my instagram photos. Sunrise and Totally Toasted give me the most bronzy looks. I naturally have tanned skin so you may think my swatches are weakly pigmented but that is how the product goes on because they are for diffusing an iridescent filter which brightens up your whole complexion. 

You can buy the TooFaced Selfie Palette at any number of premium beauty shops like Sephora or Ulta.

Happy Fingers Cut Resistant Gloves By Paul's Premium

I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen these days and although I consider myself pretty good around knives, i’ve still managed to knick myself a time or two. So, I got these cut-resistant gloves by Happy Fingers to protect my hands since I need them to look as good as possible on camera. At the same time I thought it would be a good idea to review them here on Daisi Jo Reviews and if you like them you can grab a pair yourself.  I have used these gloves for cutting carrots, steak, onions, fish and several other things and I haven’t cut myself once! These gloves are amazing! I definitely feel more confident cutting things faster than I would without the gloves because I’m obviously not afraid that I am going  to cut myself. 

Whether you are a pro or just learning your way around the kitchen, these gloves are a great option for anyone that uses a knife or a sharp cutting object. If you would like to purchase a pair of the cut resistant gloves, you can purchase them by clicking on the link, . These Happy Fingers Cut Resistant Gloves would be a great gift for friends and family!

Have you tried Happy Fingers by Paul’s Premium Comment below and let me know if you have ever tried a pair of cut-resistant gloves.

Joy & Karma Hyaluronic Acid Serum & Vitamin C Serum Review

No many of you have probably head of Joy & Karma but it’s a sweet name and line of natural and organic skincare. Joy & Karma sent me a bottle of each of their Vitamin C Serum and their Hyaluronic Acid Serum (which is actually a moisturizer). To be completely honest, I was a little weary of the hyaluronic serum but I went for it anyway and the result were great. In fact, I totally credit Joy & Karma for helping me keep my skin healthy during a really unhealthy few months where my skin could have done all kinds of things - but gratefully didn’t!

So,  I am sure you know all about vitamin c but are you curious about this hyaluronic acid serum thing? Sure you are! So let me tell you a little about it! Joy & Karma's Hyaluronic Acid Serum  is a liquid moisturizer for your face. The Hyaluronic Acid mixture includes witch hazel, aloe vera, jojoba oil, green tea extract, essential oils, vitamin c and e.

You would apply the hyaluronic acid just like you would any other cream or gel. Wash your face and apply before you moisturize. I would recommend applying before the Vitamin C (if you are planning on using both products together). I actually used one during the day and the other at night. I would switch according to how I felt. Joy & Karma recommend that you exfoliate before you apply which is definitely a plus!

For the Vitamin C you should rub it on your  face before applying your a moisturizer. As a topical application, it can take years off your face due to its
powerful anti-oxidants because it troubleshoots wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production. The Vitamin C Serum by Joy & Karma is comprised of 98% natural and 72% organic ingredients. As an all natural skincare product should, it does not contain yucky stuff like  stuff like sulphates, parabens, alcohol, petrochemicals or artificial colors.

Clinique Bonus Bag by LuLu DK

Here is the scoop on last months Clinique Bonus Bag! I loved them so much I grabbed two of them: one in the neutral palette and the other in the pink palette. Each bag came with the Dramatically Different Moisturizer Lotion, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, High Impact Mascara and the combo mini and regular size cosmetic bags.
The eye and cheek colour compacts varied in color. The neutral palette featured the  All About Shadow Trio in (03) Morning Java, (1c) foxier and neutral territory. It also came with the Soft Pressed Powder Blusher (06) fig. The pink palette featured eyeshadows in (16) day into date single shade and (14) strawberry fudge duo as well as the Soft Pressed Powder Blusher in (04) pink blush.
Each palette came with a matching Dual -Ended Different Lipstick/Long Last Glosswear. The neutral bag in (04) sunset gloss and (62) Tenderheart. While the pink bag in featured the (12) Kissyfit gloss (33) Raspberry Glace. 
In my video below, I give you an up-close look at all of the goodies!

Below are the swatches for the neutral palette with the colors labels according to the palette. Here you can see what they look like against my skin. 
Clinique sells each of these colour sets and some of them as separates. 

Foxier comes as a single sys shadow colour,

Morning Java comes in a shadow quad

Here is how the palette looks on. I did not use a primer with the colors so you can see what they look like without help or as I call them “undergarments”.

Pink Palette Clinique Bonus Bag

A note about the blushes: Even though they seem very  lightly pigmented, they actually wear pretty well. They Pink Blush shows up a little frosty but it is still really pretty especially for spring/summer season. The Fig blush is better for fall in my opinion but you can do something with it during the summer with the right shadow colours. Both blushes can be found at the following link:

Clinique Longlast Glosswear in Sunset
The lipsticks are great for day wear. I’ve actually been using them almost as chapsticks during the day. They are extremely moisturizing. I keep them in my desk and apply depending on how much color I want on my lips. The lipsticks can be found here and the glosses are here,
