Organizing my makeup

Having my makeup stash organized has been an arduous task lately, especially when I am running late (which is 90% of the time), I was thinking on purchasing a couple of clear containers to organize my makeup, but gosh they are freaking expensive. Until the other day that I was at Wal-Mart trying to find a lock for my gym locker.

I was amazed to find this and it was less than $7.00 dollars, they do have several different shapes and prices, but in comparison they are inexpensive,  I think they are great for storing makeup while looking great.  I love how my makeup looks and I cam see everything!! So if you are looking for some great containers go to Wal-Mart,  they are in their DIY Home Improvement section.

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

Riding Cowgirl and look at my restaurant

Hey everyone, as I am traveling to visit my family for the weekend I tought I would write something. I am excited I miss them a lot so every time I have the chance of visiting I do.

Today at the airport we found a Rodeo display as it is Rodeo time in Houston and had to take a picture. It looks so real!!

After that a strawberry margarita had to follow because lord mercy it was hot today.

I also remembered about something; a couple of weeks ago I went with a friend to visit some outlets in Houston which I wish I would remember the name, but I don’t. Anyways I found a restaurant with my name which was odd and cool at the same time.

Anyways, those were today’s oddities I hope you enjoy and see you next time.

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

Does It Work? Soho Travel Perfume Atomizer

So while walking inside CVS found this little gem. It’s from the brand SOHO I have to say it is a little nag to fill but works good at carrying your favorite scent in your bag especially if you have a full size perfume.

I used it with my benefit fave perfume in “So hooked with Carmella” cuz it doesn’t come with an atomizer and I don’t like traveling with it because of that, but with this I can now take it everywhere.

Until next time

Take Me To The Happy Place

Happy Friday everyone, so today I have a review/swatches of this fabulous eyeshadow palette I found recently, let me say that I am really amazed by it and has been one of my favorites since last month.

I am talking about Bare Minerals “The Happy Place” eyeshadow quad. I found this at Sephora and Love it; the pigmentation is amazing, shadows are buttery and soft, very easy to apply and blend. This has been my go to run around look for the entire month.

One thing is that it is a bit pricey around the $38.00 dollars which is a bit ouch, but if you are looking for good shadows in a small palette I think these are great. I know I have had a love and hate relationship with this brand in the past, but for these shadows my love came back lol.

Have you used BareMinerals products? What are your thoughts on this brand??

Until Next Time

xoxo
