Review: NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer
Oct. 4, 2018Leave a comment
Here’s my review on NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer! Next time, I’ll do a review on NYX Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara. 🙂 So, I’ve been using NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer for about 8+ months. I have the one in Ivory. I like the color. It blends into my skin tone and brightens it up on the spot. Loveeee!! The consistency of the concealer is thick and creamy. Even though it takes on that texture, it doesn’t provide much coverage. I would think that it would! Nope! It does a poor job at covering pimples and dark under eye circles. Whenever I apply it to my skin, I have to layer it on multiple times to get some coverage. In the end, very poor coverage. I’m left with nothing. The reason why I still use it is because I have it. I’m not big on buying more makeup products when I don’t have to. I would much rather use up what I have. 😜 If you’re looking for a full-coverage concealer that covers discolorations and imperfections, this isn’t it.
NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer does leave a nice dewy finish on the skin. I have oily skin, and I didn’t have a problem with that. Also, it didn’t cause my skin to break out in acne either, which is surprising. Sadly, even though it is infused with coconut oil for moisture, using this concealer on my face was a nightmare. It crept into every fine line, wrinkle and accentuated them like no other. I’m not liking it whatsoever. Is this concealer waterproof? Well, I can tell you that I swam in the ocean in Hawaii to test it out. No, it is not waterproof, lol. From this lengthy experience, I’m not impressed. On the bright side, it’s a cheap concealer that seems to last forever, haha. I still have a lot of product left! But, I will not repurchase in the future. I would like a concealer that provides coverage, especially for dark under eye circles. I would also like a concealer that doesn’t accentuate fine lines and wrinkles!

Waimea Bay North Shore Hawaii
Aug. 21, 2018Leave a comment
Aloha Waimea Bay! Waimea Bay is a beautiful beach on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. A famous surfing beach due to the large shore breaks during the winter season. In the summertime, the waters are more calm. A perfect time for swimming and snorkeling. Waimea Bay is also well-known for the gigantic rock (pictured above with me) called Jump Rock. It is approximately 25 ft high. You can climb up to the top of the rock and jump off if you choose to do so. If you’ve been here, have you jumped off the rock? Share your experience with me. 🙂

Free parking lot. Just watch out for chickens and roosters running around freely. They are so cute!
E komo mai! Welcome to Waimea Bay!
Some fun facts about Waimea Bay:
- It is known for fishing and agricultural lands where Hawaiins grew taro, sweet potato, and many other traditional crops.
- Surfing in Waimea Bay is a long-standing tradition.
- Eddie Aikau is a famous lifeguard and surfer of Waimea Bay.
- Waves in the wintertime can reach up to 40 plus feet!
- A place for winter surfers and ocean lovers.
- In Hawaiin, Waimea means “reddish water.”
Views of Waimea Bay at a Glance:
Yes, that’s what the warning sign says. If you simply look at the rock, it looks easy. If you’re there in person, it looks bigger and more dangerous. The waves were pretty strong when I was at Waimea Bay. I was almost pulled into the ocean just by dipping my feet into the ocean water! Luckily, nothing bad happened. I would only recommend experienced divers and good swimmers to participate in this activity.

Goodbye Waimea Bay…
It’s so green as ever.
