All Nighter setting spray REVIEW!

All Nighter by Urban Decay is a spray that it's supposed to make your make up stay longer without fading. I got the spray around Christmas time and I've been using it every day ever since.

Price: It cost me 22.60€ but I don't know if you can get it a little cheaper in other countries.
The bottle: it comes with 118ml of product. I don't think the bottle is too big, but it isn't small. I think it's going to last me a really long time.
How I use it: I spray it about 3 or 4 times on my face right after I apply my make up from a 20-30 cm distance. I don't measure it but I like spraying it from a distance so it doesn't actually wet my face. It dries pretty quickly anyway.
Results: I feel like my make up does stay longer. It claims 16 hours but I just haven't worn make up that long, so I don't know if it's actually true or not.

It can also be used to hydrate your face when it's cold outside. I heard some people say they spray it also other times during the day to make their faces feel more fresh, so I guess you can also do that.

Overall, I really recommend this product to all of you; and even though some people may say it's a bit pricey, it's going to last you a long time and it's worth the money.

Nail of the day #9 - Make an entrance

"Make an entrance" by China Glaze is a great pink fuchsia color because it's not too bright or in your face but it's noticeable. Pink is my favorite color and most my favorite nail polishes are pink. This is the first time I try this nail polish but it has already made my fave list.

Also, I'm very impressed with the quality of China Glaze nail polishes. They're very cheap compared to other popular brands like OPI or Essie but to me, they're the same quality (if not better).

Natural light, 2 coats
Have you tried China Glaze before? Do you like it? If so, please tell me what your favorite colors are because I want to get a few more nail polishes from this brand and I don't know which ones to get.

Inspired by: Sutton Mercer (from The Lying Game)

I want to start a series of posts in which I create outfits inspired by celebrities, characters from tv shows, movies...so here's the first one.
The idea came while I was watching the show The Lying Game, from ABC Family; so that's why my first "Inspired by:" post is based on Sutton Mercer.

For those of you who don't watch the show, here are some pictures of Sutton:

And here's the outfit I created not only based on these, but based on her style throughout all the episodes (I want to clarify that this is just MY take on her style).

OOTD #6 It's still pretty cold here

In this outfit of the day I'm going to show you what I wore yesterday. Like the title of the post says, it's still pretty cold where I live, so I need to wear scarves, gloves and all that not so comfortable stuff.

Also, I don't know if you can tell by the pictures but I cut my hair a little bit. I miss my long hair already, but I know this way my hair is healthier.

Boots - Coolway

Nail of the day #8 - pink glitter

Today I'm showing you guys this nail polish that I was going to show you a long time ago. I forgot back then, but since I just remembered to post it, here it is:
It's "Brilliant" by Nubar and I really love this nail polish because it has really fine glitter and it feels like a regular nail polish when you apply it, and it has a very pretty color.

Best of 2011 Tag!

This tag was created by Bethany (aka MacBarbie07 on YouTube) and I liked it and thought it was a fun thing to do. It's basically a 2011 favorite post but it does include more than fashion and beauty. So here it is:

1. Favorite foundation: I'm not a big fan of foundations and I barely find ones that work for my skin type but this one is pretty good and stays a long time.
Super Stay 24 hours by Maybelline
2. Favorite concealer:
Pure Mineral Cover by Maybelline
3. Favorite powder:
Dream Mat Powder by Maybelline
4. Favorite blush: if you haven't tried this one, plase do, because you're going to love it. I didn't even thought I was going to like a peachy blush but I fell in love.
Baked Blush in "Luminoso" by Milani
5. Favorite eyeshadow: I don't know if this is cheating but it's just 1 product, so I think it's OK. As some of you may know, I use this all the time because it offers a lot of different possibilities.
Naked Palette by Urban Decay
6. Eyeliner/Mascara: my favorite eyeliner this year was the Slide On, Glide On in "Jet Black" by NYX; and my favorite mascara was and has always been the Colossal Volume Express waterproof by Maybelline.

7. Lip Product: I love lip products so I had to cheat and choose two different things. One is a lip gloss and the other one is a lipstick but they're both amazing.
Mega Shine Lip Gloss in "tea rose" by NYX and "Creme cup" by MAC
8. Skincare product: I don't really use that many skin care products, so I'm skipping this one.

9. Nail polish: I'm cheating again. I cannot choose just one of my nail polishes, specially for a whole year cause there have been a few that I've been loving this year.
"Fifth Avenue" by China Glaze, "Bobbing for baubles" by Essie and "Blazing pink" by Dior
1. Shampoo: Tresemmé shampoo for straight hair (my hair is wavy but I use this one).
2. Conditioner: the one that goes with the shampoo, so Tresemmé as well.
3. Hairspray: Elnett by L'Oreal.

1. Favorite clothing piece: it was hard to find my favorite one, but I ended up choosing this scarf, cause I used it a lot since I got it and I feel like it's pretty unique and beautiful.
from Zara
2. Jewelry piece: I love turquoise and I wear this bracelet every day along with a few others.
from Bijoux Briggite (I think that's how you spell it)
3. Shoes: these have been my favorite shoes this winter time and I know this is supposed to be a whole year round thing, but I love them so much they have to be it.
from Marypaz
4. Bag: this is the bag that I've been carrying around most part of the year. I love that it has a lot of pockets and it's also pretty big so it fits everything that I carry on a daily basis. I even took this to class (it was at its fullest).
from Stradivarius
1. Movie: I don't know if I have a favorite one that came out this year but I really liked the last Harry Potter one.
2. TV show: Pretty Little Liars
3. Book: The Hunger Games. The saga it's amazing, and I'm currently reading the second one.
4. Food: Salad. It's my favorite food of all time, so it's been the same this year.
5. Beverage: Nestea and Pepsi

I tag all of you that read this and if you do the tag, please let me know cause I'd love to read it :)
