Loving the vampy lips trend

I could not resist to buy this Revlon Super Lustrous Black Cherry Lipstick and to join the current vampy lips trend of the season.

This is a not so easy color to wear. The first time I did, I worked so hard to make it last longer, so I applied a lip primer under it, and it was not a good idea. My lips got too dry and it made the color itself to looked too matte and dark for my skin tone.

My advice is to only apply a lip liner in  a natural shade under it and to take your time applying the lipstick with a lip liner brush. The best lip liner brush that I have ever used is this one from BHCosmetics.  Believe me, it really, really makes a difference to follow this process. I am the kind of woman who is always on the rush and I avoid to wear lipsticks that take too much work to apply and to make them look perfect. But, I think that we need to take our time to look fabulous.

Have any of you tried this lipstick from Revlon? What do you think? Are you the type of girl that stray away from dark lipsticks?

Hasta Pronto!!!

Head and Shoulders Damage Rescue Program

Hello everyone!!! I want to give a big thanks to the people from the for sending me the new Head & Shoulder Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner.

First of all, the Influenster is a program that sends free hair and skin products to participants for review. I subscribed for it on March and I have to confess that I am still trying to find how it works. It was a total surprise when I received an email a month ago saying that I was selected to participate in a new Influenster program with Head and Shoulders.

I received a full size shampoo and conditioner to try out. It claims to make the hair stronger in 10 washes. I have washed my hair two times with it, so it is too soon to testify on this claim. But I can tell you that I love the idea of using a shampoo and a conditioner from the same brand to control dandruff.  I also love its smell. It has a delicious, peach smell....

I am looking forward to see my hair falling out less and to see it looking more shiny and healthy. If you want to participate in this program from the Influenster, go to their website, subscribe and create your profile. You may be able to receive free goodies and to participate in many of their programs.
  Thanks a lot Influenster and Head and Shoulders!!!

December Ipsy Makeup Bag

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope that you all had a wonderful time with family and friends. 

Now, I want to show you my Ipsy (formally MyGlam)  bag from the month of December. It was just fabulous, filled with all the necessary goodies to glam at the holiday parties :)  Definitely, there is no better way to finish this year and to welcome the new year than looking gorgeous with the help of Ipsy. If you haven't subscribe yet, I suggest you to do it. One of my co-workers subscribed to and she has been over the moon with the products and finding herself waiting to receive her new bag anxiously every month, just like me ;)

My Ipsy bag brought me:

And my very favorite out of these products is the lip gloss. Once more, I am not a lip gloss fan, but how to say no to this beautiful red color?

I cannot wait to try the rest of the products from my Ipsy bag. I have been very satisfy with my subscription and I cannot wait for more.

Happy Holidays everyone

The Best Hair Accessory For A Perfect Bun

Who isn't getting ready for the holiday parties. I am so excited because this year I would be attending a few parties.
There is not a better occasion than the holidays to get all out and try a new makeup look, a nice hair do and a sexy dress. I ordered these two dresses at and of course I will decide on one.....mmmmm.
I think I will wear my hair up on a bun, so I got this Bun Maker at my local CVS (I love CVS) It is easy to use and the best hair accessory for a sleek classy bun.

Currently loving.......

I've been loving this mineral foundation from BareMinerals. I love how flawless and shine free my face looks with this, and believe it or not, add moisture to my skin and it has SPF 15!!
I have still yet to get use to its application (practice makes perfect) or maybe I need to find a better application brush. The brush is not so great and makes me work too hard applying this product.......Any recommendations, anyone?

Happy Halloween

 I tried to recreate this look from popsugarbellaTV for Halloween. What do you think? I had a lot of spare time this past weekend, and I decided to occupy myself putting this look together. So, so easy!!!
I also tried to be creative with my nails. As I said, I had a lot of free time this past weekend.

 In a more serious note, my prayers and sympathy are with the people of New York and New Jersey. We fought a terrifying weather with hurricane Sandy. A lot of people lost their homes and are still fighting the aftermath of the hurricane. I am thankful because me and my family are okay, but I cannot really feel happy because I am very sorry for the ones that were affected by this hurricane. Let's all pray together and do whatever we can to help the people that need it the most in this difficult time.

Hasta pronto!!!

MyGlam August Bag

Every month, I found myself anxiously waiting to receive my monthly MyGlam bag! My August's bag has finally arrived, and it has very fabulous products that I want to show to you.

First, look at this beautiful baby pink lip gloss. It is an exclusive product for MyGlam members and it is lovely. I am more of a lipstick lover, but this gloss is such a beautiful color, that it is hard to resist.  It has a good pigmentation and it smells like strawberries and cream. So yummy! It can be wear alone or on top of your favorite lip color.

I also received this orange nail polish named Spectacle. This color is so summery and so perfect to wear for these last weeks of summer! I do think that the color is beautiful, but it is a little opaque. But, nothing that cannot be fixed with a coat of clear nail polish on top.

Another of the products in this month's bag was this mineral eye shadow in Glama-Zoid by Salty Cosmetics. This is a very pigmented and shimmery eye shadow. I will wear this on the inner corner of my eyes  and on my brow bone as a highlighter.  This eye shadow has a duochrome color with pink undertones. So lovely!

Glammies are always looking for products to help their members to take care of their skin, and therefore I received these samples skin care products from eclos plant-based beauty. Both are anti-aging with natural ingredients that provide hydration and cell regeneration for the skin. They claim to reduce winkles and to smooth the skin. It is too bad that these are just samples sizes because I would love to try them for a longer time and to see their results. 

Anti-Aging Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream 

Anti-Aging Cellular Activator Face Serum
 Finally, I received this roll on perfume oil in clean skin. It smells so good. I love the sophisticated and subtle aroma of this perfume and it reminds me of when I was a teenager, and I used to wear the roll on perfumes from AVON. Those were my favorites back in the days.

And this is it! These are the products that I received on MyGlam bag this month.  I am very impressed with my bag and I love all its products.
I cannot wait to get my next bag and to share with you what I receive.

Hasta Pronto!!

bareMinerals Original Foundation=The best foundation

The last time I shopped at Sephoras, I received a sample size of the bareMinerals Original Foundation with SPF 15. Oh my God.....this foundation is the best foundation ever.....!

I never used mineral foundations before, so I don't know how this works in comparison to others, but I can tell you that this is a winner for me.
It is amazing how much coverage it provides with such a little amount of product. And what it's more amazing to me is how it truly last all day without feeling heavy on the skin and without changing color during the day. This is the best foundation for people with combination/oily skin, (like me) specially during the summer.

I purchased a full size at QVC, in a kit value for $35.00 (plus shipping), containing the foundation and a flawless face brush, for a better application. I bought it in medium shade, and I think it is a little light for me, but I just balance it out with some matte bronzer. Next time I repurchase this, I will ask for professional advise to choose the right shade for me. 

It is important to take your time blending this foundation since this is key for a flawless application. In my opinion, this foundation has no cons, and I highly recommend to give it a try.

Have you tried this bareMirerals foundation? Please, share!

Hasta pronto!!
