Will I purchase?

Hi guys! Welcome back. Today I want to talk to you about some new makeup releases and whether I would like to buy them or not. I love watching videos of this kind because it helps me with making decisions. My favorite people on YouTube, that do videos like this, are: Kelsey Alfred, Andréa Matillano and KrystalKBeauty.

I’ll start with the things I’ve decided I don’t need in my life. The very first thing I know I don’t need is Urban Decay’s Naked Reloaded palette. I’ve seen mixed thoughts on this release but many people love the palette. I just find it looks similar to my Pérsona Identity palette with those earthy-shades.

This next eyeshadow palette gave me the same vibes as the Urban Decay one, it’s pretty similar to the Pérsona Identity palette. Also, I have a very similar blue shade (from Colourpop). I’m talking about the Colourpop x Zoella Brunch Date eyeshadow palette. Although the rest of the collection looks nice, I’m not holding my breath for it.

Now, those new Huda Beauty Power Bullet Matte Lipsticks look beautiful and I’m dying to get my hands on them. But the price tag hurt me, I find that $25 is a lot of money for one lipstick and I’m not willing to spend it that way.

Let’s talk about the ones I would love to buy but this girl doesn’t have that much money. First is the it Cosmetics Confidence in a Foundation that comes in 48 shades (nice!). The reason?? I love their CC cream and Dani from CoffeeBreakwithDani said it was an amazing foundation (that’s more than enough for me).

I love my matte lip products, even though my lips are crazy dry, but Pérsona Cosmetics new glosses look so pretty. I’m still not sure about this one because it’s $16 for one lipgloss, which is too much for just a gloss.

Smashbox is releasing a new collection called the Crystalized Collection and let me tell you something. The highlighter OPTI-MYSTIC is STUNNING! I died when I saw the insanely beautiful glow it gives.

The last product I want to talk about is from the Ciaté x Jessica Rabbit Collection Glow-To creamy powder highlighter. I’m interested in this product because the pictures look incredible and I figured that because I love a highlighter from them, I would also love this one.

¿Qué compraría?

¡Hola! Bienvenidos nuevamente. Hoy quiero hablarles sobre algunas colecciones nuevas de maquillaje y si las compraría o no. Me encanta ver vídeos de este tipo porque me ayuda con las decisiones. En YouTube, mis favoritas son Kelsey Alfred, Andréa Matillano y KrystalKBeauty.

Comenzaré con los productos que decidí que no necesito en mi vida. Lo primero que no necesito es la paleta Naked Reloaded de Urban Decay. He visto personas que les encanta y otras que no tanto. En mi caso, encuentro que los colores marrones/neutrales la hacen similar a mi paleta Identity de Pérsona.

Esta próxima paleta de sombras me dio la misma impresión que la de Urban Decay, es similar a la paleta Identity de Pérsona. Además, tengo un azul (de Colourpop) que es muy parecido al que incluye la paleta. La paleta de la que estoy hablando es Colourpop x Zoella Brunch Date. El resto de la colección se ve bien pero no es algo que me encanta.

Ahora, los nuevos lapices labiales Power Bullet Matte de Huda Beauty lucen hermosos y muero por tener aunque sea uno de ellos. Pero el precio…Para mí $25 por un lápiz labial es demasiado dinero y no estoy dispuesta a gastarlo así.

Ahora hablemos sobre los productos que quisiera comprar pero no tengo tanto dinero. Primero es la nueva base de It Cosmetics, Confidence in a Foundation (viene en 48 tonos). ¿Por qué la quiero? Bueno, me encanta el CC cream de ellos y Dani de CoffeeBreakwithDani dijo que era increíble (lo cual es más que suficiente para mí).

Me fascinan los productos labiales mates, aunque mis labios usualmente están resecos, pero los nuevos glosses labiales de Pérsona Cosmetics lucen muy bonitos. No estoy segura de ellos porque son $16 cada labial, lo cual (nuevamente) es demasiado por un producto para los labios.

Smashbox tiene una nueva colección llamada Crystalized Collecction y les diré algo. El iluminador OPTI-MYSTIC ¡Es HERMOSO! Quedé impresionada cuando vi el increíble brillo que da.

El último producto del que quiero hablarles es de la colección Ciaté x Jessica Rabbit, el Glow-To creamy powder highlighter. Estoy interesada en este producto porque en las fotos se veía hermoso y supuse que al gustarme un iluminador de Ciaté, también me gustaría este.

7 looks, 1 paleta de sombras-Paleta Identity de Pérsona

¡Saludos! Bienvenidos a otra edición de esta serie, donde les muestro 7 looks creados utilizando solo una paleta de sombras. En esta ocasión, usaré la paleta Identity de la marca Pérsona. La misma cuesta $32 e incluye 12 colores (6 mate y 6 brillosos). Los colores son suficientemente neutrales como para convertirse en la paleta de uso diario de cualquiera (que le guste esos tonos, claro está). La fórmula de esta paleta es increíblemente suave como mantequilla y tiene una gran pigmentación. ¡Comencemos!

7 Looks, 1 Eyeshadow Palette-Pérsona Identity Palette

Hi guys! Welcome to another post on the serie “7 Looks, 1 Eyeshadow Palette”, where I show you 7 different eye looks using only one palette. For this one, I’m showing you what a came up for the Identity palette from the brand Pérsona. This palette retails for $32 and includes 12 shades (6 mattes and 6 shimmers). It’s quite neutral and that makes it perfect for an everyday use (if you like neutral looks, of course). The formula of the shadows is amazing, real pigmented with butter-like softness. Now let’s get started with the makeup!

2018 Favorites-Makeup & Non-Makeup

Hi guys!  Welcome to the last blog post of the year (“Whaaat?”-minion voice).  It’s been a great year: I started this blog, obtained my Masters degree, and got a job at a retail store.  I don’t do New Year’s resolutions but feel free to share yours in the comment section. Now let’s talk about makeup and non-makeup favorites.

First, I discovered a face moisturizer that hydrates my skin without making me look like a grease ball and that will be Hydra Genius Daily Moisturizer for oily skin from L’oreal.  For taking my makeup off, I use a Micellar Foaming Cleanser for combination to oily skin, from Garnier Skin Active.  It takes all my makeup off, including waterproof mascara, without leaving my face feeling super dry.  As for my hair, I’ve been loving Herbal Essences Curl Defining mousse (strong hold) and discovered the amazingness of Aussie Kids Detangler in Bloomin’ Apple.  Smells good and incredibly helps with my knotty-curly hair.  Lastly for non-makeup products, I absolutely love ULTA Beauty’s Shadow Switching Pan for using the same eyeshadow brush repeatedly with different colors.

Now, I have a lot of favorites products in the makeup section (majority are drugstore/affordable).  Many of them, I’ve talked before so I’ll link the blog post.  For base products, the most I’ve been using are L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation in 104 Golden Beige (blog post), Covergirl Clean Matte bb cream in 520 Light (blog post), Colourpop’s No Filter Concealer in Light 16, Colourpop’s No Filter sheer pressed powder in Light (blog post), and Maybelline Master Fix loose powder in Translucent.  For bronzer I have two: Bettina Sun Splash Bronzing Powder in Light to Medium, and Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Deep Bronzer (blog post).  For blush I have: Maybelline Fit Me in 10 Buff, Lottie London Blush Crush in zac, and Morphe Blush in Spirit.  These two last blushes I got in my Ipsy bag.  Last face product is highlighter, Smashbox X Casey Holmes Spotlight Palette in Gold and Pearl, Wet ‘n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in 319B Blossom Glow (blog post), and Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette in 032 Solstice (blog post).

For the eyebrows I used mostly the NYC Browser Bush-On Brow Kit in 876 Brunette but because of some Ipsy bags, I found two brow pencils that I like.  The Arch Arrival Brow Definer in 02 Taupe Tom from Sugar, and Skone Brow Wand in Chocolate.  I also have two eyeshadow palettes that I’ve been using like crazy: Pérsona Identity palette and Maybelline Soda Pop palette (blog post).  Love the ULTA Beauty Gel Eye Liners in general, but I have four colors: Black Out, Black Brown, Olive, and Bronze.  The two mascaras I’ve been using throughout the year are L’oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof in Blackest Black, and Covergirl Flourish by Lash Blast in Very Black (blog post).  The last products are for the lips: Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks, Colourpop Lux Lipsticks, and L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Lipgloss.

These are all my favorite products for this year 2018. What products were your favorites through the year? Let’s talk in the comment section.
