Friends and Family Sales all Over!! (Sephora & Ulta Haul)

Hello World!! Happy Hump Day! Week has been flying pretty fast for me, and I wanted to do this post before more time passes by, right now as many of you already know Sephora is having its Friends and Family Sale, I wanted to film this showing you a couple of things you can take advantage of while the sale is on because it’s over on Friday!!

I also made a quick stop at Ulta, they were having 20% off, I am not sure if that one’s still going on but if it is make sure to take advantage of that as well. During these sales I really like to stock up on products that are a staple in for me and that I know in normal times I cannot get a discount. Enjoy!!

Until Next Time and Happy Shopping

Is Kat Von D too much for me? And what’s been going on?

Traveling this week to visit my family…Yay!! I am very excited and happy every time I get to see them. Anyways today while doing my Packing list I thought about talking a little bit new products I’ve been using for the past couple of weeks.

201403_00

First of all let’s start with Kat Von D Lock – It Tattoo Foundation I purchased this in exchange to my Laura Mercier  – Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free which I must say did not cause a big of an impact for me, and makes me prefer way more drugstore brands besides this one, I also thought it was overpriced for the results it delivered. As I was returning this one I thought I would try the Kat Von D foundation because I heard great things about it, especially for Oily skin.

Well I got it, and let me just say this, foundation is very full coverage, I’ve never seen or tried something like it, a little bit goes a long way and photographs really nice, the package comes with a pump which is always something I give big kudos to because it is easier to apply, and it comes with a lot of product (30 ml), price wise is not that expensive as other brands at $34.00 USD and If you have oily skin this would work for you.

Now, you must be shocked of my next following words, I will be returning this product. It is not that the product is not a love, and it really is a great foundation, but I consider is too heavy for me, I tried applying it with my beauty blender to give it a more sheer appearance, but all the time it looks as if I am wearing a lot of makeup, which for an office employee that might give a different impression lol…

This is NOT a bad foundation in all means, and it did work for my oily skin, I was not a shiny ball after a long day, even after going to the gym. But it’s just not suited for me. However it depends on what you are looking for, as I said it looks great in pictures, but in person I look like wearing makeup, lots of it.

The next product I have is from Clinique OMG this is freaking cute, I saw it and fell in love, you know how much I love blush, so they released new blushes with great colors they are called Cheek Pops  I abstained myself in only getting one so I purchased Berry Pop which is a beautiful color I love it pigmentation is very good they are not chalky and you can really build the color up.

And the last thing I have is my new love, my must desired for years Tory Burch flats, these things men they are expensive, but are so beautiful and look so nice with everything. The perfect flat for work, going out, hanging with friends, etc. I am still in the process of breaking them in to see if the theory it’s true that they will become the comfiest pair of flats ever. But so far so good I love them and have been wearing them nonstop.

Until Next Time,

xoxo

In the meantime I have some great reviews comming on the next couple of weeks and a haul!! Who would say that it would be more fun to shop after Christmas…almost every store is having great sales so I’ll keep you posted on that.

Yesterday I went to Target because I needed to get some stuff and got carried away by an essie nail polish, it looked so pretty in the display, and then came home, applied it and finished with this.

I don’t know, I am still in the meh mood, because on the display picture, the nails looked like a full coverage polish. But then I read in the bottle and it said  top coat…wth I felt miss leaded however I will try to work with it..but no I wouldn’t recommend it to you my friends.

So that’s it for me, I hope you guys enjoy your weekend, be safe, have fun and will see you next time.

Quito Haul Pt. 2

Hey everyone, so today is Haul Day!! basically I am still in Quito which has been great so far. I would only have to mention that I am recovering from a horrible cold and a stomachache, but other than that I keep being optimistic.

Weather is unique let me tell you, you can definitely have 4 seasons in one day, but still nothing that a coat, scarf and umbrella can’t resolve. But let’s go to our main reason for this post the haul. So this weekend we got the chance to go shopping…and boy did I shop. So I wanted to share with all of you, hope you enjoy!!

Until Next Time,

xoxo
