[ Review ] FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about this French Press coffee maker for months and the reviews are overwhelmingly great! Even with those reviews, I was still a little skeptical about it. Lately, I broke my coffee maker and so I needed a new one. While I was shopping for a new coffee maker I happened to see this French Press coffee maker. I was debating for probably over thirty minutes whether I should get this or get the same coffee maker that I had. Apparently, the debate on my head ended and the French Press won and I checked out.

When I got back home, I couldn’t wait, I was too eager to give it a try and so I did. You know what, the first thing I said to myself was ” girl, you should have tried this the first time you heard about it”. I continued talking to myself saying “dang, this is good!”. Anyone else can relate? Do you talk to yourself sometimes? Anyway, I’m so glad I got the French Press.

SO WHY FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER?

For me, my coffee using this French Press coffee maker tastes much better compared to my old coffee maker. Paper filters in drip machines absorb much of the oil in your coffee grounds. French Press doesn’t soak up the flavor and adds tiny bits of coffee grounds in the coffee that percolates flavor and that’s why the taste is even better.

HOW LONG SHOULD FRENCH PRESS BREW?

The brewing takes only four ( 4 ) minutes. First thing, I boiled water. While the water is boiling I put coffee grounds on my French Press. Then, I slowly poured the hot water over my coffee ground inside the French Press filling to the desired level. Cover it and let it brew for four ( 4 ) minutes.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE FRENCH PRESS?

French press retains more of the natural oils from the coffee grounds.  It allows the oil based flavors in the coffee to remain. I’m telling you now, I’m obsessed with it. This is a must have coffee maker.

[ REVIEW ] WET N WILD MEGAGLO MAKEUP STICKS: HIGHLIGHT & CONCEAL + SWATCHES

For quick makeup days, I would highly recommend Wet n Wild Makeup Sticks from Walmart, especially the “conceal” makeup stick. This “conceal makeup stick is my new best friend. I’ve been using this for over three months now. So far, I’m happy with the result and how it quickly conceals some red spots on my face with just a few applications. I used this “conceal” stick as my face foundation alone and eyelid primer. Adding a little blush on my cheeks and eye shadows, and I’m done. Hey, it works! For me, this stick is a must have especially for busy moms. I actually carry this in my purse all the time as well.

About the highlighter one, I have nothing negative to say. It gives my face a nice glow! It comes in ten different shades.

  1. Call Me Maple
  2. Flora Majority
  3. Follow Your Bisque ( This is “conceal” shade I am using )
  4. Hustle & Glow
  5. Nude For Thought
  6. Oak’s On You
  7. Peach Bums
  8. When The Nude Strikes ( This is the highlighter I am using )
  9. Where’s Walnut
  10. You’re A Natural

I’m really impressed how effective these sticks are, and for the price, I can’t let these two pass.

My Daily Makeup Products + Reviews

Hello everybody! How are you all? I’m hoping everybody is doing great. Today, I’m going to share my favorite makeup products for my daily use. A high school friend of mine asked me what makeup products I am using. Mostly, Walmart, Target, Dillard’s and Victoria’s Secret products. Okay, let’s start, shall we?

Daily Makeup Products
My Daily Makeup Products

WET N WILD MEGALO MAKEUP STICK 

I’d rather forget my cup of coffee, but not this makeup stick. This stick gives me naturally flushed cheekbones and glowing complexion. Sometimes, when I’m in a hurry, I just use this product alone. For under twenty dollars, this stick is so worth it!

COVERGIRL CLEAN MATTE

This oil control liquid foundation #535 is by far the best liquid foundation. This product is made with ultra-light oil-absorbers that control oil, and conditioners that help prevent dryness on your face. Also, it won’t clog your pores. That’s the best part!

WET N WILD MEGALO CONTOURING PALETTE ( Caramel Toffee ).

Obviously, I’m almost out. It’s time to get a new one, lol. Gosh, this product is my favorite contouring product. As you can see the image above, I really need a new one! This duo contouring powders give me a flawless sculpted face within just a minute. Sometimes, it doesn’t even take a minute to do it using this product. The lighter color is for highlights and the darker one is to define. If you haven’t used this duo yet, you should at least try. I’m sure you’re going to love it.

E.L.F HIGHLIGHTING POWDER

This is my most favorite shimmer highlighting powder. It helps me achieve that photo-ready finish look. This product is under ten dollars only and it lasts a long time.

Powder makeup products
Contouring powder, highlighter, and eye shadow palletes.

L’OREAL LA PALETTE NUDE

Creating a sophisticated eye look is my fave thing. I used lighter colors as base on my lower and upper eyelids. With ten high impact pigments and three shadow finishes, I always get that look I want.

MILANI EVERYDAY EYES EYESHADOW

I always use this metallic eyeshadows over my base on my eyelids to add a little dramatic look. This product is perfect for eye contouring and highlighting with an extra dramatic look after. The shades are richly pigmented and I just love it!

EYE SHADOW STICKS SET

I’m loving this set. It’s perfect!

Mug isn’t just for coffee.

EOS LIP BALM

This is my everyday lip balm. My lips dry fast in winter, and this lip balm hydrates and nourishes my lips.

VELVET MATTE LIP STAIN

This lip stain is a must have. I get a lot of compliments all the time ( not bragging ). If you want a full-coverage matte finish and lasting effect, this is it!

Now, I’m gonna stop right here and goodnight to all.

Xoxo, Ester
