October 2011 Favorites!

Another month has passed and that means one thing: it's time for my favorites post :)
I love trying new things every month but here are a few that I've been using for a while (except the 3rd one, which I got to try out this month...since it's new)

1. Naked Palette by Urban Decay

I know everyone has it and everyone says how amazing it is. But in fact, it is as amazing as everyone says. I've been using it a lot this month and I just can't get over how many different color combinations and looks you can get with just one palette. It's also a little expensive (I paid 37€ for it online) but I think it's totally worth it! (and yes, I haven't taken off the plastic from the mirror yet... and I'm not planning on it lol)

2. Bourjois eyeshadow in "Citron Givré"

It's limited edition and I bought it from asos.com (I don't know if it's still available). Yeah,  it's yellow but I don't use it as a regular eyeshadow. I only use it to brighten up my inner corner and I feel like it makes my eyes pop more than using just a plain white eyeshadow.

3. BB Cream by Garnier

It doesn't do what it claims to do but it is a great moisturizer. I have oily skin and this doesn't make my face greasy at all. It also gives a little bit of color, but in my opinion it's not enough, so I still have to use foundation.  I just use it for the moisture part. It's also fairly cheap (around 7€ in my country), so I don't feel like I should complain.

4. Elf blush in "Tickled Pink"

It gives a very natural look to my cheeks and it's perfect for every day use since it's not heavy but you can definitely see that it's there.

5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Tokyo"

I love everything about it: smell, color, price, texture...This shade it's a very pretty light pink that makes my lips almost nude but with a hint of pink. You can read the tube for yourself haha

Outfit Of The Day #5

Hey everyone! Here's another outfit of the day. I actually wore this last week and it wasn't as cold as it is right now so if I want to wear this outfit again I'll have to add a jacket and probably a scarf (since I'm obsessed with scarves).

Shirt - Zara
Tank top - Zara
Pants - Stradivarius (they're actual pants even though they look like leggins)
Boots - Coolway
Belt - Forever 21

New shoes: like or dislike?

I went shopping a few days ago and I got this pair of shoes. It's not something that I usually go for but I thought they were cute and a little more warm for the fall time.
I bought them at Marypaz (which i don't think it's available in other countries, but you can definitely find something similar at other stores) and they were 21€, I believe.

what do you think?

Nail of the day #4

Here's another nail of the day post. This nail polish that I'm showing you it's very unique and that's why I love it.
I don't know if you've heard about duo-chrome nail polishes, but if you haven't, here's one of those. Basically, they show different colors depending on the light or the angle.

This one is "Stardust" by NUBAR.

Here's what it looks like with no flash and artificial light. It's a coppery pinkish color that I love.

This is under the sun light. It turns into a pretty gold color that I also love.

Do you guys have any duo-chrome nail polishes? Do you like them?

Outfit Of The Day #4

This is actually what I wore yesterday, but I didn't have time to post it.
It's getting colder and colder where I live, specially in the mornings, so that's why I'm starting to wear boots, long sleeves and jackets (I wore a jacket over this outfit, but I forgot to get a picture of the whole thing, sorry).

Top - Forever 21
Jeans - Forever 21
Boots - Coolway

ps: please excuse my stained mirror, I have to clean it LOL

Review: NYX Cream Blush

I was requested to review NYX's cream blush by Carly after I showed it in my September Favorites. If any of you wants me to show a certain item, or have any kind of request, just tell me in the comments below :)

So let's jump into the review:

 Front of the blush: NYX Rouge Cream Blush

The color that I own is "Natural" (as you can see in the picture above). I only own one of these blushes because I've always been a little picky with cream beauty products, but I'm going to buy 2 more once I get the chance.
You can probably guess that I really liked this blush. It has the perfect color for every day looks.

You can see how creamy it is, but it feels very light when you apply it.
  • Size: it has a pretty good size and comes with a very good amount of product.
  • Price: we don't have NYX in my country, so I bought it from ebay. I paid more than its regular price ($6.50), but not too much ($9.50).
  • How I use it: In my opinion, it's better to apply it with your finger rather than using a brush. When I tried the brush, the color stayed just like a spot in my face and it didn't blend as well. So if you are considering buying one of these, use your fingers.
  • Shades: it comes in 13 different shades so you have a lot to choose from.

Rocker outfit


Rocker by lumontes

Here's an outfit I just put together on Polyvore. It has a rocker vibe and I feel it's perfect for a night's out, to go dancing or to a concert (In that case, I'd change shoes...I love high heels, but I wouldn't go to a concert wearing them; even though I've gone to concerts wearing wedges).

Outfit Of The Day #3

I thought I'd share my outfit of the day. I do not have a ton of make up on because I was just going to class and I usually wear less make up during week days.
It's a casual outfit that you can wear pretty much everywhere.
I'm sorry the quality is not the best but I was rushing a little bit.

Shirt - Stradivarius
Belt - Forever 21
Jeans - Forever 21
Flats - Forever 21

September 2011 Favorites!

Well, September's gone by fast and that means my vacations are over and I start my sophomore year at college next week (yeah, I know it's late, but we finish later on too). I'm sad about that but I'm excited about fall and all the fashion trends that are coming up; I'm excited to dress to class every day and do my make up everyday (cause I've been slaking a little lately).

So, here are my favorite September beauty items:

1. Clean & Clear face wash.

I've been using it every other day since mid August and look how much I have left. It lasts a long time and it gives a fresh feeling to my face but it doesn't make it tight. It's also oil-free, which I love (since I have oily skin).

2. Vichy make up remover (3 in 1).

It works as lotion, toner and eye make up remover. It's very creamy but light at the same time and it does a great job removing my heavy eye make up. I also use it to clean my brushes and it works great.

3. NYX cream blush.

It is in the color "Natural" and it gives a pretty pink color to my cheeks. It's the first cream blush that I bought and I'm in love with it.

4. Elf zit zapper.

I've been breaking out a little lately and this is something that I've been using to dry my zits. It's just like a roller that you apply on your zits and has alcohol (or something that smells like it) and dries them out. It was also very cheap and I thought it wasn't going to work, but it does.

5. Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion.

I tried to use all of my Elf eyeshadow primer before opening this one, but I had to try it and now I've been using this one only since then. It blends very well (which means that you only need to use a tiny little bit) and I feel like my eyeshadow stays better that with my Elf one (but that one works just fine).

6. Elf minty lip gloss.

This one is in the color "Boston" and I've been loving it since it has a deeper pinkish color, which is better for fall. It's actually in between pink and red, and since it's minty, it's very fresh. I just love these lip glosses.

7. NYX Slide On pencil.

This one is in "Jet Black" and the reason why I've been using it and loving it so much is because I've been going out at night with friends a lot in September and I needed an eyeliner that would stay all night on. This is that eyeliner.

What are your favorite products this month?
