The Lipstick that Looks Expensive But is Not

“That lipstick looks gorgeous” a girl who works in Sephora told me while I was checking out some purchases, I was like “Thank You it’s CoverGirl” she could not believe it; now I don’t normally receive these type of compliments,  but when I do I have to write about it.

And I wanted to talk about this lipstick because it really is a very faltering color and is not a high end brand, two of my favorite things. So I came up with this lipstick watching a YouTube video (not a surprise) and I found the color beautiful.

Divine Wine is a color that when you might see it you may think “this color will not be good for me”, basically because it looks purple, but when you apply it it truly transforms into this amazing vibrant color, in my lips is a little bit berry. Also, it lasts a long time and leaves a tint on your lips when it fades. I truly recommend this if you are looking for a pop of color this season.

The New Year Sort Out

There is nothing that says happy new year better than getting rid of what you don’t want! So without surprise my new year started cleaning and de-cluttering my space, there is nothing like the great feeling of having things organized and sorted out. I believe this month will be an interesting one, because I am working in several aspects of my life that I’ve been meaning to, but hadn’t grabbed the bull by the horns in the past.

Starting with the makeup. I decided to create several projects for this, that will have to be developed during the year because mainly my makeup is a stinky mess, and it is one of the mainly points I want to work on. Of course I love makeup and of course I have a lot because I love testing and reviewing new products, but there gets to a point where you say “dang girl go slow on the mascara” so for the following weeks I will be doing inventories due to the fact that I need numbers in order to see what I want to accomplish in the  year end. Don’t worry I will have updates in this soon, my inner geek stride the other day and found a way to mix organizing with makeup.

Clean and Keep. My new motto for this year, I would normally clean and organize stuff on a weekly basis, but my main problem is maintaining stuff in their place (That’s why I always lose time over the weekends putting things away). Have you ever heard the phrase “everything has its own place”, it would seem like in my case I tend to forget that. So for this year I promised myself I would store everything in its place when I finished using it. I think I am starting good and will be a good habit to keep.

Until Next Time,

It’s Party Time…Makeup Mists

Holiday Parties are coming fast, I already had a couple and  became aware of the value of looking good for pictures. I am not normally the type of girl who photographs good; actually I am the type of person who looks like this:

Photos

But skipping the babbling, today I want to talk about Setting Sprays, because I have oily skin and I always have valued the power of setting my makeup in order for it to last longer. So I will be talking about two products (drugstore of course) one I already finished and the other one is still going strong.

The first one is the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray around $8.00 in the drugstore with 2.02 Oz. This is a very powerful little bottle I enjoyed using it over the summer, but I have to admit that even if I am oily for this season is kind of harsh for me. I do recommend it if you are extremely oily, it really works.

NYX Setting Spray

The next product is the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray I even got tired of writing this name, now this product is interesting because it’s around $16.00 in the drugstore with 3.4 Oz. Ok it comes with more product than the NYX one and honestly I like it even more, you know how L’Oreal owns Urban Decay (and they also have their setting spray, which I did not like at all because it makes my skin feel sticky) well this product is good, mist is very lightweight, it does set my makeup pretty good plus I do feel it extends if for a longer period of time, it does not have any scent that I have noticed which is a good thing for me and my makeup looks good in photos. I do recommend it, but the only bummer is the price, for a drugstore product I feel it could be a little less expensive, but if I compare it with trying to buy a high end brand this beats it completely. My opinion would be get it with a coupon (which is a great option drugstore gives us in the US).

Loreal Setting Spray

Do you have any other Setting Sprays you love?

Until Next Time
