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.

First Impression-Colourpop x Frozen II

Hi guys! Hope you’re good and healthy. Today I’m doing a first impression on the Colourpop x Frozen II eyeshadow palettes. As a bonus, I tried the No7 Lash Extender Infinite Lash Length and Volume mascara. // ¡Hola! Espero que estén bien y saludables. Hoy estaré haciendo una primera impresión de las paletas de sombras de Colourpop x Frozen II. Como bono, probé el rímel Lash Extender Infinite Lash Length and Volume de No7.

If you want to see the application process, go watch this video on my YouTube channel. // Si quieren ver el proceso de aplicación, vayan a ver el video en YouTube.

These limited edition eyeshadow palettes retail for $15, they include 9 shades and a mirror. Elsa’s palette is cool-toned while Anna’s palette warm-toned. As every Colourpop eyeshadow palette I’ve tried, these have amazing pigmentation and blend really well. // Estas paletas de sombras de edición limitada cuestan $15, incluyen 9 tonos y un espejo. La paleta de Elsa es de tonos fríos mientras que la paleta de Anna es de tonos cálidos. Como todas las paletas de sombras que he probado de Colourpop, estas difuminan muy bien y tienen una pigmentación increíble.

Now, the No7 mascara impressed me. I’ve seen the retail price fluctuate from $8.99 to $14.99. One coat gives length, volume and pigment to my lashes. When I added the second coat, it looked really good. A third coat clumped my lashes a bit, but I’m not mad at it. It stayed all day and was easy to remove. // Ahora, el rímel de No7 me impresionó. He visto el precio fluctuar de $8.99 a $14.99. Una capa da volumen, pigmentación y alarga mis pestañas. Cuando añadí la segunda capa, se veían muy bien. Una tercera capa agrupó mis pestañas un poco, pero no me molesta. Se mantuvo en mis pestañas todo el día y fue fácil de remover.

Speed Reviews // Reseñas rápidas

Welcome to the blog! Hope your day is good so far. Today I’m going to share quick reviews of four makeup products. Let’s start with some primers. // ¡Bienvenidos al blog! Espero que hasta ahora su día vaya bien. Hoy estaré compartiendo unas reseñas rápidas de cuatro productos de maquillaje. Comencemos con “primers”.

Both primers are from Covergirl, TruBlend Base Business Skin Primer in Mattifying and the Lid Lock Up Eyeshadow Primer. The skin primer has a lightweight, non-greasy formula. But I didn’t noticed a difference in the longevity of my foundation or in my skin’s oiliness. As for the eyeshadow primer, it helps my eyeshadow to stay in place and blend better. Also has little coverage. // Ambos “primers” son de Covergirl, para la piel TruBlend Base Business en Matificante y para los ojos el Lid Lock Up. El “primer” para la piel tiene una fórmula ligera y no grasosa. Pero no noté diferencia alguna en el control de mi piel grasa y la longevidad de mi base. En cuanto el “primer” para ojos, ayudó a que mis sombras permanecieran en su lugar y se difuminaran mejor. También tiene un poco de cobertura.

Now, the L’oreal Micro Ink Pen by Brow Stylist has surprised me. It’s available in five shades. The first time I used it, was a bad day for my brows. This product’s pigmentation depends on the pressure applied while using it. For a seamless blend, you have to work in sections and blend as you go. It stays on all day long. // Ahora, el Micro Ink Pen por Brow Stylist de L’oreal me sorprendió. Está disponible en cinco tonos. La primera vez que lo utilicé, fue un mal día para mis cejas. La pigmentación de este producto depende de la presión que se le aplique al utilizarlo. Para que se difumine perfectamente, hay que trabajar en secciones y difuminar constantemente. Permanece en su lugar todo el día.

Lastly, the Wonder’full 24HR Brow Mascara by Rimmel is available on three shades. It has a lightweight formula that stays on but the pigmentation isn’t enough to wear it alone. At least for me with my sparse brows. // Por último, el Wonder’full 24HR Brow Mascara por Rimmel está disponible en tres tonos. Tiene una fórmula ligera que permanece en su lugar pero la pigmentación no es suficiente para utilizarlo solo. Por lo menos para con mis escasas cejas.

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.

What I think of Revo-Pooches Palette

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

Today I’m going to share my thoughts on the Revo-Pooches eyeshadow palette from I Heart Revolution. It retails for only $7.49 (on Ulta’s website) and has 18 shades. I bought it after watching Dani, from CoffeeBreakWithDani on YouTube, rave about it.

Let’s start with positive thoughts, it has purple packaging and four cute dogs (in 3D) on the front. Also has a good quality mirror. The shades are beautiful, soft, pigmented and easy to blend. They stay on the eyes all day without creasing.

Talking more about the eyeshadow’s softness, I think that’s what caused them to break in transit. A few of the shades shattered, but I was able to kind of press them back. These shadows are quite dusty which isn’t a big deal for me.

I played with it for the past few days and have created these three looks.

Shades used: Blondie, Roll Over, Bark, and Hound Dawg.
Shades used: Roll Over, Bark, Bruno, and Puppy Love.
Shades used: Boop, Biscuit, and Floof.

Overall, I love this palette. Even though it has some broken eyeshadows, the pigmentation and blendability makes up for it.

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 good and staying healthy. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

Here comes another post about new makeup launches and what I would love to buy. That doesn’t guarantee I will do it, I just like to share my thoughts and opinions with you. Today’s list has what is considered high-end (aka expensive) makeup brands. I actually own nothing from any of these brands (except Huda Beauty), so all I would say is going to be about packaging and colors.

DISCLAIMER: All pictures and information presented here was found on trendmood’s Instagram account.

First we have NARS limited edition Laguna Collection. From this summer collection, I’m into the Oil-Infused Lip Tint and the Powerchrome Loose Eye Pigments. The lip oil retail for $26 and comes in two shades: Laguna and Reef. As for the loose pigments, which retail for $28, Islamorada is calling my name.

Next, Huda Beauty with some Diamond Hydrating Balms that have a cool look and sheer pigmentation. They’re $25 each and comes in 4 shades. I like Negligee (sheer nude) and Dirty Thoughts (sheer lilac). Apparently, they launch in May. What’s already available is a highlighter by Fenty Beauty from their new collection Cognac Candy. The highlighter is refer to as Diamond Bomb in a copper shade for a retail price of $39. It looks quite pigmented and an amazing sheen (almost glittery), but for that kind of money I think I’ll pass for now.

I’m not a fan of any shade of pink but Sigma’s new collection called Cor-De-Rosa looks beautiful. The eyeshadow palette with 14 shades seems to have great pigmentation and retails for $49. In the lip department, I liked the Cor-De-Rosa Liquid Lipstick and the glosses in shades Cor-De-Rosa and Secret Garden. Each lip product (liquid lipstick and gloss) retail for $20. My decision is split here because I love the shades of the lip products, but I find them so damn expensive.

The Supreme Nudes Collection from Artist Couture looks incredibly luxurious. Love the 12 shades in the eyeshadow palette, they’re right up my alley. The retail price is $40, which I’m not thrilled about. There’s also 6 shades of Silk Cream Lipsticks and they retail for $18 each. Not sure which shade I like more, they all look gorgeous.

The Shade and Illuminate Face and Eye Palettes by Tom Ford are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Packaging looks luxurious and the shades are amazing. I’m so in love with two of them, Intensity 2 Moonlit Violet and Intensity 3 Moss Agate.

Pür Cosmetics will be launching a Trolls Collection related to the new Trolls movie World Tour. Everything about the eyeshadow palettes is precious and the pigmentation seems to be good. I like them all, but to be fair there are some colors that I already own. For example, the Funk palette reminds me of Colourpop’s It’s My Pleasure palette. So if I’m being realistic, I’ll probably buy Techno, Classical and Rock.

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.
