Últimos Favoritos

Hola a todos; recientemente he decido comenzar a escribir en dos idiomas : Español e Inglés . Les voy a estar hablando sobre algunos de mis productos de maquillaje favoritos. Los he usando estas últimas semanas y  son productos accesibles. Debido a mis problemas de acné y piel sensible algunos productos terminan agravando la condición de mi piel, este no ha sido el caso con ellos.

Ojos: 

Soy amante de las mascaras, mi favorita siempre ha sido la Rocket Volume de Maybelline y la Butterfly de Lóreal pero recientemente se me acabaron y en un especial basándome en comentarios ( y obviamente precio ) decidí comprar la Voluminous Carbon Black de Lóreal y Covergirl LashBlast Fusion. Siempre prefiero las mascaras lo más obscuras posibles para hacer notar mis pestañas ya que no tengo muchas. La Voluminous le hace honor a su nombre brindándote un gran volumen pero no mucha longitud es por esto que la uso en mi primera capa de mascara y al secarse uso la LashBlash de Covergirl. En mi caso ha resultado durar un largo periodo de tiempo en mis pestañas. Para un estilo más natural y diario uso LashBlast ya que separa y da longitud a las pestañas. Para las cejas este de kit de Milani es el mejor para personas con el cabello claro, mi problema es que soy bastante castaña y casi todos los productos para cejas resultaban muy obscuros y me veía un tanto extraña … lo recomiendo llevo alrededor de 1 año usándolo.( El kit trae su propia brocha,un pinza y no recuerdo lo otro) .

Cara: 

Mi piel es bastante grasosa recientemente encontré la nueva Fit Me Matte + Poreless. La uso en el tono 112, este tono sí se ve igual a mi color de piel algo que usualmente es difícil ( No sé por que). La base es suave, no me ha causado alergias ni brotes. El único problema es que alrededor de 3 horas comienza a desaparecer como a caerse y al tocar mi cara con las manos o alguna otra cosa la base se queda en ellas.De igual manera no me mantengo sin brillo por mucho tiempo. Pasamos al polvo … en mi país este polvo base de Milani ha subido de precio, razón por la cual estuve un tiempo sin usarlo pero debido a que se acerca el verano hice el sacrificio. Este polvo te hace ver natural, es duradero. Ofrece una cobertura liviana o media lo cual en mi opinión es perfecto para uso diario. Usualmente lo uso encima de BB creams, no de bases ya que así logro verme mucho más natural. Para bronceador tengo una imitación de Hoola by Benefit, el olor es un poco fuerte pero para ser una imitación no me ha causado problemas, ciertamente no tiene un color tan pigmentado como el original pero funciona. Para rubor o iluminador uso el Baked Blush de la línea de Elf Studio en el color Peachy Cheeky. Prefiero usarlo de iluminador ya que da un hermoso brillo sutil encima del bronceador y muy natural.

Labios:

Los lapiz de labios Wet n’ Wild MegaLast son los mejores y son bastantes económicos. A mi ningún labial me dura horas y estos aún con el pasar del día y comidas,  obviamente se desvanece el color pero este no desaparece por completo.

En la próxima foto les muestro los colores del rubor, bronceador y ambos labiales.

CoverGirl Haul

Hello everyone I’m back!!! It has been a long time since my last post I hope everyone is doing well. So recently in my city there was a “Gustazo” (special offers) that let you bought up to 10 covergirl products for 3$ each. So I quickly bought the Gustazo due to the availability and prize of it ( it was free) and ran to Walgreens. I will show you what I bought. My purchase was based on new things I wanted to try and products I’ve used in the past.

The Colorlicious lipsticks shades are beautiful, since I went at night I wasn’t able to grab the colors I liked the most , but I was lucky enough to find other ones I liked as well. I have to admit I loved the 240 from the nude ones… it was love at first sight. They’re very pigmented and they do feel smooth. I will show you how they look on my skin ( Excuse the bad lighting).LIpstick

Swatchs LIPSSome people have told me that these two mascaras are very good (I hope so). I will tell you my experience  when I try them.The eyebrow powder is new and because I suffer from alopecia and my eyebrow hairs tend to fall too I’m excited about trying this. As you can see the eyebrow thing is the blonde one 815 and the mascaras they’re both in very black.

Mascaras

The powder I’ve used before and it is one of my favorite loose powders out there. Absolutely anything would cause me to breakout  and I didn’t break out using it also it doesn’t make you look cakey or shiny. My only complaint is that the lid cracks very easily. It doesn’t seem to matter how  gentle you are with it, it is only a matter of time before it cracks. Another thing is the smell, but I’m used to it so.  Bought the Trublend Fixstick in the shade Fair for highlighting. ( I have the medium dark one for contouring). I wouldn’t say it covers blemishes or acne spots all the way but it makes them a lot less noticeable.

Agave Hair Smoothing Treatment

As I said I’ve tried the Agave Treatment. The application process is long ( So as my hair). It took about 2 hours to get it done. I will leave a video and the link for the treatment. First I have to say it left me speechless my hair felt so soft and smooth. You can really feel and see it straight and shiny without using a straightener. After styling it with the straightener it looked like a hair from a beauty commercial. I washed it at the three days after just because of the oiliness… the hair itself was looking straight and healthy except from the really oily roots (I’ve tried several products that claim to control the oil and they didn’t worked on me). I only blow-dried it and it wasn’t necessary to use the straightener it was looking tamed and I was happy with it. In my case on the third day wore a ponytail and at the moment it was possible to notice a soft wave but then I brushed and styled it with the blow dryer and it disappeared. Second my complaint and the only thing I don’t like about this is that my hair is getting oilier faster than ever. I’ve been told that it is going to look healthier after washes. Overall I like it because it gives you the opportunity to let your hair rest from a lot of heat. I recommend using a small amount of hair oil on the ends.

 If you want to use a straightener feel free to use it for better results. I personally want to let my hair rest from chemicals and the straightener.

Pending Reviews Update

Hey, I know I told you that I was going to make two reviews. Well I haven’t had enough time to make them. My two works and studies kept me busy until yesterday. On the other hand on my free night  I watched Fifty Shades of Grey… disappointing. Well on other news I also bought two Forever 21 Lipsticks and I’ve been trying them.

Matte Lipstick in Red

 00136881-03

I’m not a big fan of wearing red lipsticks or really intense colors, but I decided to give them a try. In a hurry I found this one while in the line and grabbed it. It is such a beautiful red color, very bright and intense. I saw a little of sparkles on it but it does offer a very matte finish. The biggest surprise on this lipstick was that it lasted a complete evening on me ( Something that doesn’t happen very often). For 3.90$ I really have to say that in my opinion it is a great deal. There were many more  lipsticks and colors that you can try.

Ultra Matte Lipstick in Nude

00099290-01

Not my favorite nude color I like the Wet N Wild 902C but this isn’t bad at all.You can use it to retouch through the day. Also bought it for $3.90 which makes you give them an opportunity. It’s really matte.

I’ll try to do the other pending reviews and other ones.

Happy Valentines Day !! Take Care and Thank you for reading.

Pending Beauty Reviews

Hey everyone, hoping you all had a great weekend. I’m going to try to write two reviews : Some Wet n’ Wild Lipsticks I bought on clearance for $1.50 and I also will be telling you my experience with the Agave Smoothing Hair Treatment. Here are some preview photos of the reviews.

There are going to be 8 lipstick colors , 6 of the Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color and 2 of the Wet n Wild Silk Finish. I went to Walgreens and saw them and grabbed a few of them so I hope they work and look good on me. I have lots of lipsticks and none of them barely last on me. I will thank lipsticks suggestions from anyone so feel free to tell me ( also that aren’t expensive)

.IMG_3168

Other way in the Agave Smoothing Treatment I decided to try it because I’m naturally kind of blond (people tell me that) and two years ago I decided to change a bit and highlights were the option. Those highlights burned my virgin hair and also the flat iron was involved in that. A friend told me of that treatment so risking my hair bought a bottle on Ebay and yesterday a friend helped with the treatment application and process. ( Youtube told us how to do it). You can clearly see a difference.
