Review-Maybelline Cheek Heat Blush

Hi! Welcome back. Hope you’re doing good. Today I’m sharing a review of Maybelline’s Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush. It retails for around $7.99 and comes in six shades. // ¡Hola! Bienvenidos nuevamente. Espero que estén bien. Hoy estaré compartiendo una reseña del rubor Cheek Heat Gel-Cream de Maybelline. Cuesta alrededor de $7.99 y hay seis tonos.

According to Maybelline’s website, this product is a “water-based gel cream infused with colorful pigments that create a buildable, natural looking blush”. // Según la página web de Maybelline, este producto es una “crema de gel a base de agua infundida con pigmentos coloridos que crean un rubor de aspecto natural edificable”.

I like this product because is an easy to blend formula with sheer but buildable coverage (as it claims). I think is perfect for beginners just for that reason. Best application method is with the fingers. If I want a bit more color, I just apply some powder blush on top. // Me gusta este producto porque es una fórmula fácil de difuminar con una cobertura clara pero edificable. Pienso que es perfecto para principiantes por esa razón. El mejor método de aplicación es con los dedos. Si quiero un poco más de color, simplemente aplico encima un poco de rubor en polvo.

L’oreal Bambi Eye Mascara vs Maybelline the Falsies Lash Lift Mascara

Hi guys! Hope you’re safe and doing good. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

Today we’re going to talk about two mascaras I’ve been using for a few months. Both claim to give length and volume to the lashes.

L’oreal Bambi Eye mascara has a retail price of $10.99 and a “velvety washable formula glides on smoothly for lifted, elongated lashes, without clumps”.
Maybelline the Falsies Lash Lift mascara also retails for $10.99 and “delivers a dramatic volume and long, lifted lashes.

In my experience, both mascaras give good volume and length. I find that the L’oreal Bambi Eye mascara is a bit faster to get clumpy, if too many layers applied. Maybelline the Falsies Lash Lift mascara has a more thin formula, which helps the clump-free claim. But if you let it dry between coats, you’ll get clumps and it will be difficult to apply it.

Photo’s left side: L’oreal Bambi Eye.
Photo’s right side: Maybelline the falsies Lash Lift.

As you can see in the photo above, the left side looks more pigmented and together. As for the right side, the Maybelline mascara separated my lashes more. The length and volume seems to be the same.

I like both mascaras, they’re good and don’t transfer (after letting them dry) or flake. Preference over one or another will depend on the eye makeup I’m wearing.

7 Looks, 1 Palette-Colourpop It’s My Pleasure

Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing good. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

I’m back with this series where I show you seven eyeshadow looks with just one palette. This time I’ll be using the It’s My Pleasure palette from Colourpop. Which is part of their monochromatic palette range.

The shades are beautiful and pigmented. If you combine it with a neutral palette, the looks will be more different between each other. I love this palette, but not for everyday use. Unless purple eyeshadow doesn’t clash with your outfit.

Will I Buy?-New Launches

Hi guys! Hope you’re healthy and doing good. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

During these days of being at home trying to be productive and not go crazy, I’ve been paying more attention to new makeup collections. As I was scrolling and taking screenshots of everything I was liked (on first impression), I remembered it’s been a while since I’ve done a “Will I Buy?”. So here I am, sharing with you I would love to buy.

DISCLAIMER: All pictures and information have been obtained from the account trendmood on Instagram.

I must tell you that I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes and lip products. So don’t be surprised when you see, that what I love from all the collections are the lipsticks, glosses or eyeshadow palettes. You’ve been warned!

First, the Colourpop x Mulan Collection looks so good. I know it’s been out for a while now, but I love Colourpop’s quality so much. I would buy: the eyeshadow palette (contains 15 shades and retails for $22), Lux Creme Lipstick in Hua Mulan (retails for $9), Lux Gloss in Phoenix (retails for $9), and a blush in ________ retails for $12).

Another collaboration I fell in love with is the one between Ulta Beauty and Marvel’s Black Widow. The eyeshadow palette has 12 shades and retails for $20. As for the lip kit duos, I haven’t decided which shade I like more. But it includes a lip liner and a creamy lipstick (retails for $16). I only own a few eyeliner pencils from Ulta Beauty so I can’t talk about the quality of these products. But they sure do look nice.

I’ve never heard of the brand Zodiac Cosmetics until I saw some new Zodiac Eyeshadow Palettes on trendmood’s Instagram. Each palette retails for $14.99 and contains 12 shades. Sadly, there are a few shades that repeat in every palette and they end up looking quite similar to each other. If I was going to buy one, it will either be Capricorn, Pisces or Taurus.

Then, we have Revolution Pro (from Makeup Revolution) with some jewel-related eyeshadow quads. They retail for $15, which I find a bit expensive for only four shades. But I liked So Jaded, Hidden Jewels and Wild Onyx.

Lime Crime launched the Lip Pops Satin Lipsticks for a retail price of $20 each, which I find expensive for a single lipstick. Don’t know if they’re worth the price because I’ve never tried this brand. But if you like this brand, you can get them in a bundle for $126. The shades I liked more are: Cold Brew (cool taupe brown), Sangria (cool toned red), and Oxblood (deep oxblood red).

These are the more affordable (in my opinion) makeup launches that I would like to buy. From all the products mentioned above, I’m more inclined to buy from the Colourpop x Mulan Collection and Ulta Beauty x Marvel’s Black Widow Collection.

Mascara Recap-Will I Repurchase?

Hi guys! Welcome back, hope you’re having a great day. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

The topic for today: mascara. I’ve tried them, they’re gone, now we need to talk about them. Were they good? Will I repurchase? Which one did I like more? If you want to Know the answers to these questions, just keep reading.

The first is the Colourpop BFF Mascara. I got it when it first came out and got 3 colors (black, blue and purple). They were my go-to mascaras because the pigmentation was amazing. It didn’t smudge or transfer. But when the formula became dryer, it started to flake and smudge during the day. Haven’t repurchase because I always have many mascaras on rotation and many more waiting to try.

Next, L’oreal Lash Paradise. It’s pigmented, gives good length & volume, and doesn’t smudge or transfer. But gets clumpy with too many coats. Both formulas, waterproof and non-waterproof, perform the same. The only difference is the taking process. The waterproof formula is harder to take off, which is why I prefer the non-waterproof one. Have repurchased many times (have like 2 backups).

Covergirl Lash Blast Active is pigmented and gives lashes a more natural and separated look. Can be built-up without getting clumpy and it doesn’t tend to smudge or transfer. Good for everyday, minimal makeup look. Haven’t repurchased it and I’m not sure if I will.

I have tried 2 Rimmel mascaras: Scandaleyes Retro Glam and Scandaleyes Wow Wings. Both are extremely black and give lot of volume. The formula is super wet, which means it takes quite some time to dry. Haven’t repurchase because I’m not fan of wet formulas.

Lastly, Maybelline Snapscara (non-waterproof) is a pigmented, clump-free, volume giver mascara. It has a not-to-dry, not-to-wet formula. Haven’t repurchase yet but will when I finish a few mascaras.

Overall, my favorite mascaras are:

  • L’oreal Lash Paradise (non-waterproof)
  • Maybelline Snapscara (non-waterproof)
  • Colourpop BFF Mascara
