Weekly photos #16

Don't you guys get really bored in summer when you're in your city? I do. I can't find things to do when I'm at home; the only thing is going shopping, and as much as I love it, it's no good.

1. I got sick this week. I randomly got a fever; I really don't know why it happened, but it went away in a day, so that was nice.
2. When I don't know what to do I find myself organizing or cleaning my room. This week I organized my make up drawers because I just had everything everywhere; it was chaos.
3. It's always nice to see the streets almost empty in summer around lunch time. It's weird, but it feels like the city is mine in a way...do you know what I mean or am I just crazy?
4. They opened a frozen yogurt place really close to my house! I'm so excited!

5. I went to the store and saw that they had the Maybelline color tattoo creme eyeshadows so I picked one up. I have to say that I really like it and I think I'm gonna go back and get another one.
6. Iced tea in summer is pretty much the best thing. I love hot tea, but I feel like it's too much right now, so I just add a few ice cubes and make it iced tea. Favorite thing to drink.
7. As you all probably know, the olympic games have begun and I watched the opening ceremony and, personally, liked it (nothing to do with the fact that JK Rowling was there, as well as a huge Lord Voldemort).
8. I went and saw The Dark Knight Rises today. Actually I just came back from the movie theater and it was AMAZING! I think you all should see it if you haven't already. Anyway, the subway was pretty much empty, so I took a picture there. (I know, I'm weird).

Jennifer Lawrence inspired make up

You all know I'm a huge Hunger Games fan, so I was very happy to create this look. I got my inspiration from her look at the Hunger Games premiere, where she wore a pretty brown smokey eye, peachy cheeks and really light colored (almost nude) lips.

For my eyes I used the color "buck" from the Naked Palette as a base, the third color from the Revlon quad in "Attitude" for my crease and the darkest color in that same quad for my outer corner and I also put a little bit down my lower lash line. To highlight my brow bone I used a single eyeshadow from CoverGirl in the color "french vanilla", and to highlight my inner corner I used an eyeshadow from Bourjois called "citron givré".

My eyeliner is NYX Slide On pencil in "Jet black" and my mascara is CoverGirl Lash Blast (the waterproof version).

For my cheeks I used MAC's blush in "Launch Away!" (that came out with their Hey Sailor! collection) which is just a very light peachy color.
And last but not least I used MAC's lipstick in "Creme Cup" on my lips and NYX's lipgloss in "Mauve". This combination created a light pink color that can look a little nude as well.

If you want to see all the steps, you can go watch the video I made:

What do you think of this look?

Nail of the day - Mojito Madness

As you can guess from the title, today I'm showing you "Mojito madness" by Essie, which is a color that came out in their 2012 summer collection.

You can get this color at beauty.com here, at Target here or at Nordstrom here.
I'm not usually a person who goes for out-there colors, but I think this green is fun for summer and it's always nice to change it up a little bit.

Weekly photos #15

This week started out a little crazy because I was a bit jet lagged and I felt like sleeping all the time. Once that was over, my life went back to normal; to boring normal.

1. You all know I love downtown because I've posted a few pictures before, but it's probably my favorite part of Madrid (Gran Via street), so I go there quite often when I'm bored.
2. Doesn't this pizza look amazing? It's just one of those frozen ones that you put in the oven for a while and it's done, but it was pretty yummy so I thought I'd share :P
3. What I hate the most about summer is the heat. That's my alarm clock behind my bed telling me that it was 30ºC inside my room at night. Yes guys, I feel like I'm going to die.
4. I was excited to come back home so I could make some more videos. As you may or may not know, I have a youtube account and I really like making videos: the creativity, filming, editing...I love it all.

Now my life is going to be this and hanging out with friends every once in a while until August 21st, when I go to London!! :) I'm really excited and if any of you are going to be there by that time, please tell me because I'd really like to meet you.

Beauty Haul | Revlon, Essie, Benefit, Tarte & more

These are the products I got on my trip to the United States of America. It's less than what I was expecting to get, but I'm pretty happy with everything.

I know we have Maybelline here, but these are not out yet and since everyone was saying how good they are, I had to get a couple.

Baby lips in "Peppermint" and "Pink Punch"
Then I got a bunch of things from Revlon because we don't have it in Spain, so I was very excited. First I got this Eyeshadow stick in the color "torch" and one of their new quads in "Attitude", which are neutral colors as you can see.

I also got one of their newest Just Bitten Kissable lip stains (I think that's what it's called) in the color "Sweetheart". I really like this product because it has great pigmentation, the color is really pretty and stays for a long time.

Lastly from Revlon I got to of their very famous lip butters.

Lip Butters in "Strawberry shortcake" and "Cotton candy"
From Covergirl I got their lash blast waterproof mascara and a single eyeshadow in the color "French vanilla" that I'm going to use as a highlight because I don't like wasting my "virgin" from the Naked palette.

My most expensive purchases were these three things: 2 blushes and a primer. The first blush is "Hervana" by Benefit and the other one is the Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in "Dollface" from Tarte. The primer is Too Faced Shadow Insurance (which I actually didn't get while I was there, I got it online).

Because I bought a Benefit blush they gave me these 2 things for free. One is just an eye mask thing that says "beautification in progress" and the other one is a primer sample called "Stay don't stray".

As far as nail polish goes I got 3 but I wanted to get more. Anyway, I didn't want to look like a crazy person and I didn't want my mom to be mad at me, so that's why I only got three.

Essie's "Cute as a button", "Mojito madness" and "Shop till you drop"
Last but not least I got a body mist from the Pink line at Victoria's Secret and another one of the EOS lip balms.

I'm sorry this was pretty long, but hopefully you liked it anyway :)

Hey guys! Today I just wanted to let you know that I have a Pinterest. I've been using it for a while but it's now when I'm getting more into it.

I added the link to my pages bar up top but HERE's the link again.

If you also use Pinterest, please tell me your username or link it so I can follow you as well.

New in | American Flag sequin top

I didn't get that many clothes (at all) while I was in the states, but I did get one thing that I really like and I wanted to share with all of you. It is from Victoria's Secret; well, from their Pink line/section/whatever that is.  Unfortunately I got it after July 4th so I didn't get to wear it that day, but that's alright.

As you can see, red, silver and blue sequin make the american flag. I thought this was really cute and had to get it, plus this is the only size they had left and it was my size (that hardly ever happens so I took it as a sign haha).

Here's a closer look:

Would you ever wear something like this?

Weekly photos #12, #13 and #14

Hello everyone!! I'm back!
As you may or may not know, I've been in the USA for the past 2 weeks and that's why I didn't have the time to post my weekly photos those two weeks. I didn't want to skip them, so I'm combining them into this post.

ps: I'm sorry for the amount of pictures; hopefully this doesn't get too overwhelming.

1. I usually hate packing but since I was only going away for 2 weeks, it was easier than last time I went over there...and I didn't take that many things either, which was weird.
2. Don't you guys hate waiting at the airport? I do. I just don't know what to do.
3. The flight is not that much fun either, and my first one was 11 hours! Yes, you read that right. That's the longest I've been inside a plane, and it was pretty boring.
4. I, of course, took some cloud pictures because that's what you do, right?

5. Hey there! I got sun burnt from going to the pool haha Random fact about me: I'm allergic to the sun (my skin gets random spots if I'm exposed to the sun for too long).
6. My favorite thing about being in america: buying new make up that is not out in Spain yet!
7. I think red velvet cupcakes are my favorite...yum!!
8. And Subway is also my favorite. I seriously would eat subway every single day if I had one close to me here.

9. Me and my two best friends from the states just being silly. I miss them already! :(
10. Another favorite of mine, the Snapple kiwi strawberry juice: it's the best.
11. I had some Ben & Jerry's while I was waiting at the airport in Dallas. Like I said, I don't know what to do while waiting, so I just got some ice cream.
12. Oh my god! I almost freaked out when I saw The Hunger Games was on the list of movies on the plane. I don't know about you but I always cry when I see that movie and this time was no exception; thankfully the lights were out and (I think) no one saw me.

I also want to add a few pictures that I took with my camera, since all the ones above were taken with my phone.

Chatterbox by MAC: review + swatch

Chatterbox is a MAC lipstick that fits into their "Amplified" category, which means that it is very pigmented and it has a cream finish (it's not matte but it's not shimmery).
I would describe it as a bright pink color with a slight hint of coral, even though it looks darker in this picture.

As you might know, MAC lipsticks come in a black bullet like stick/tube/package which makes it look sleek and nice but it's not so much a good thing if you have a few of them and don't want to look to the bottom of it to see the color.

This one is more like the real color
I think this color is perfect for the summer time and I recommend it with a light pink color on your cheeks; I think that looks really cute. I also picture someone wearing this lipstick while wearing a bright floral pattern summer dress (but that's just an idea haha). 

This swatch is pretty close to the real color, if not perfect, so look at this last picture instead of the other ones if you're trying to decide if you like the color or not. 

I'm pretty happy with this lipstick so far and it applies smooth even when my lips are a bit dry and chapped.

Nail of the day - Neon party

"Flip Flop Fantasy" by China Glaze is the perfect nail polish color for this summer. I was very impressed with the color itself because I thought it was going to look worse on the nails than the color you can see on the bottle, but I was wrong. The color is the same: neon coral.

Depending on the light it can look either orange, pink or coral; but I think this last one is its real color because it's the one you see most of the time with natural lighting.

I was surprised again when I painted the first nail and saw it was matte. A friend told me that all neon nail polishes are matte the other day, but I didn't know it when I was painting them. If you like matte nails then you're going to love this nail polish but if you prefer glossy nails, you can always apply a top coat.

You can get it HERE!

June 2012 Favorites!

I haven't tried out many products this month because I had exams and all of that, but I did get one thing that I wanted for a long time and finally decided to get. I love it so much and that's why I'm featuring it here: it is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.

You probably have seen this before so I don't want to get into details, but it is a great neutral palette and you can create a lot of different looks with it; it's definitely worth the money.

Then I have 3 lip products because you all know I love lip products:

The first one is my MAC lipstick in Chatterbox and it looks darker in that picture but I have a post ready for you guys to see soon (while I'm gone) in which I have better pictures and swatches. The second one is my EOS lip balm in Lemon Drop and it's great for summer because it also has SPF 15. The third one is Maybelline's Super Stay 10h tint gloss and I don't know the color name but it's kind of a dark pink color; I'm not sure if it stays for 10 hours, but it does stay on for a long time.

My favorite nail polish of the month has been "Flip Flop Fantasy" by China Glaze which is a really pretty neon color.

And last but not least I have 2 bracelets that I've been wearing a lot. The spiked one is from ASOS and the other one is from H&M.
