December Beauty Favorites 2013!

It's the last day of 2013 and I wanted to share with you my last monthly favorites of the year! I also did a video on this which would be at the end of the post, if you want to check it out.

NYX lip liner in Deep Red: I've been using it with the lipstick I'm showing you here as well. It was very cheap but it's good quality and it maked my lipstick stay all day long, even if I eat and/or drink.

MAC pro longwear concealer: I've been breaking out a bit lately and this covers even the worst things. It's amazing!

Benefit Hello Flawless foundation: a lot of people love it and I can see why. I've been using it for an everyday use instead of my Revlon Nearly Naked lately.

Urban Decay Naked Basics palette: I love this palette so much and I tend to use it everyday just cause it's so handy and easy. Lately I've been liking really light eyeshadow, so the shade Venus is getting some well deserved love.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Wink: it smells like bubble gum!! and who doesn't like a light pink balm?!

Rimmel London Kate matte longlasting lipstick in 107: it's the perfect deep red color. I'm obsessed with it and I think it's perfect for the Holiday time.

NYX matte bronzer in Light: I've never been a bronzer type of girl cause I'm really pale, but this one has a nice color that I can actually wear. I think it compares to the Too Faced milk chocolate bronzer, but it's onle $9!

MAC blush in Pink Swoon: I've rediscovered this blush since it was at the back of the drawer and I totally forgot about it. It looks kind of scary and intimidating but I promise it's not that pink when you swatch it (if you actually want to see that, watch my video).

I hope you all liked my favorites, and I wish you all a very happy new year!!! :)

See you in 2014, xoxo

Nail of the day - Bobbing For Baubles by Essie

Today I want to show you one of my current favorite nail polishes. This is Bobbing For Baubles by Essie and it's a lovely navy color, as you can see in the picture. I really like wearing it and I think it looks very classy. It also compliments really well my pale skin, but I'm sure it'd also look amazing on darker skin tones.

Hoy os quiero enseñar uno de mis pintauñas favoritos del momento. Este es Bobbing For Baubles de Essie y es un color azul marino muy bonito, como podéis ver en la foto. Me gusta mucho llevarlo y creo que queda muy elegante. Además, queda muy bien con mi piel súper blanca, aunque estoy segura que también queda genial en pieles más oscuras.

This one came out a couple years ago, but After School Boy Blazer is a very similar navy and it's from their newer winter collection, so if you can't find the one I'm showing, that one is pretty close (although a bit more dark).

Este salió hace un par de años, pero After School Boy Blazer es un azul marino muy parecido y es de la nueva colección de invierno, así que si no encontráis este, el otro es casi lo mismo (aunque un poco más oscuro).

Naked Basics palette by Urban Decay | Review + swatches

I finally did it. For the longest time I didn't want to buy this palette cause I have the original Naked and the Naked 2 and I didn't think I needed it (which I probably don't anyway lol), but after seeing everyone get it and fall in love with it I had to.
As some of you may know, it comes with six neutral eyeshadows, five of them being matte. It's also pretty small so it's perfect for travelling and, surprisingly, you can create a lot of different looks with it.

Por fin lo he hecho. Estuve mucho tiempo pensando que no me quería comprar esta paleta porque tengo la Naked y la Naked 2 y no pensé que la necesitase (y probablemente esto fuese verdad), pero después de ver como todo el mundo se la compraba y les encantaba tuve que hacerlo.
Como algunos sabréis, viene con seis sombras de colores neutros, siendo mates cinco de ellas. Además es bastante pequeña por lo que es perfecta para viajes y, sorprendentemente, puedes crear muchos looks distintos.

The packaging is gorgeous as you can see; it feels very expensive and nice. Like I said, it's also pretty compact and small and it uses space wisely (it doesn't have many empty space to make it bulkier).

La paleta por fuera es preciosa como podéis ver; se nota que es de muy buena calidad. Como os he dicho, es bastante compacta y usa el espacio de forma inteligente (no tiene muchos espacios vacíos que lo hagan más ancho de lo necesario).

The shadows are amazing and different enough from each other and from the other Naked palettes (except foxy, which also came in the Naked 2). Venus is the only shimmery color, the rest are matte.

Las sombras son increíbles y suficientemente diferentes de cada una y de las otras paletas Naked (expecto fixy, que venía también en la Naked 2). Venus es el único color con brillo, el resto son mate.

Since I couldn't capture the colors in the light/way I wanted to, here are two different photos so you can judge for yourself.

Como no podía capturar los colores en la luz/forma que quería, aquí tenéis dos fotos diferentes para que juzguéis por vosotros mismos. 

Overall, I recommend this palette to all of you, specially if you like wearing neutral colors and/or don't have many other; but even if you do you're going to enjoy it. Urban Decay eyeshadows are great quality, so it's no surprise everyones loves this palette as much as I do.

En general, os recomiendo esta paleta a todos, especialmente si te gusta llevar colores neutros y/o no tienes muchos; pero incluso si los tienes la vas a disfrutar. Las sombras de Urban Decay son de muy buena calidad, así que no sorprende que a todo el mundo le guste esta paleta tanto como a mi.

Nail of the day - Metropolitan by L'Oreal

I haven't been buying that many nail polishes lately because I feel like I already have enough. With that said, I was going to buy a lipstick the other day but didn't find the one I wanted and since I can't leave the drugstore without buying anything (cause I feel awkward), I bought this grey nail polish.

Also, I've been looking for the perfect grey nail polish for a while, so I was really happy when I found Metropolitan by L'Oreal.

No he comprado muchos pintauñas últimamente porque creo que ya tengo suficientes. Con eso dicho, fui el otro día a comprar un pintalabios pero no encontré el que quería, y como no puedo salir de la tienda sin comprar nada (porque me siento incómoda), compré este pintauñas gris.

Además, llevaba un tiempo buscando un pintauñas gris que me gustase, así que me alegró mucho encontrar Metropolitan de L'Oreal.

Top 5 | My favorite fall lipsticks

Today I want to share with you my top 5 lipsticks for fall! It's no secret I love my lip products, so obviously I'm going to have some favorites for the fall time.

Hoy quiero compartir mi top 5 de pintalabios para el otoño. No es ningún secreto que me encantan los pintalabios, así que obviamente tengo algunos favoritos para este tiempo otoñal.

 1. MAC's Rebel lipstick: Rebel is a satin lipstick from MAC's permanent collection (so it's easy to find it) and one of their most popular ones for this time of the year. If you like the dark lips trend, this is your lipstick. It's a dark purple color but very wearable and pretty. It's my favorite one out of these five.

Pintalabios Rebel de MAC: es un pintalabios satin de la colección permanente de MAC (por lo que es fácil de encontrar) y uno de los más populares para esta época del año. Si te gusta la moda de los labios oscuros, este es tu pintalabios. Es un color morado oscuro pero es muy bonito y te lo puedes poner mucho. ¡Es mi favorito de los cinco!

2. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain in Smitten: this is also a dark purple color, but it's lighter than Rebel. This product is a stain but it's very creamy and it won't dry your lips, which is always a good thing.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain en el color Smitten: también es un morado oscuro, pero es más claro que Rebel. Este producto es un tinte labial pero es muy cremoso y no te seca los labios, lo cual es bueno.

3. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain in Honey: as you can tell, I really like these. I chose this one because it's a light color but it's not bright. It's a muted mauve that I think it's perfect for the fall time. Even though I'm putting it as my third option, it's the one I wear the most out of the five.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain en el color Honey: como puedes ver me gustan mucho. He elegido este porque es un color claro pero no es brillante. Es un malva apagado que creo que es perfecto para el otoño. Aunque lo estoy poniendo en el número tres, es el que más uso de estos cinco.

4. Maybelline lipstick in Lady Red (#527): everyone needs a red lipstick, and to me, this is the best one out there. Maybelline lipsticks are very good quality and this is just amazing. It has cool undertones so it makes your teeth look whiter than a warm red would.

Pintalabios de Maybelline en Lady Red (#527): todo el mundo necesita un pintalabios rojo, y para mí, este es el mejor. Los pintalabios de Maybelline son de muy buena calidad y este me encanta. Tiene tonos fríos lo que hace que los dientes parezcan más blancos que si fuesen tonos cálidos.

5. Maybelline Super Stay 10h tint gloss in lasting pink: another stain...but this one has a glossy finish. Even though the color is called lasting pink, I'd say it's more on the red side, but anyway, it's very pretty.

Maybelline Super Stay 10h tint gloss en lasting pink: otro tinte labial...pero este tiene un acabado gloss. Aunque el color se llama lasting pink, yo diría que el color es más tirando a rojo, pero bueno, es un color muy bonito. 

I also make a video on this, so here it is in case you want to see them (and some swatches) in "real life":

También he hecho un vídeo de esto, así que os lo dejo aquí por si los quieres ver (y los swatches) en "la vida real":

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss

I thought I'd start blogging again since it's summer and I have a lot of free time. I recently bought these two lipsticks and I'm in love with them, so I wanted to share my thoughts with all of you.

These are the Lasting Finish Matte lipsticks from Rimmel London and they're part of the Kate Moss line/colaboration. The colors I have are 103 (the pink one) and 109 (the orange one).

Scent: These are my first rimmel lipsticks so I don't know if they all smell like this, but these smell just like their Apocalips lip laquers. I don't mind it, but I know some people may not like it since it's a bit strong. Anyway, once you apply it and let it dry and all that, you don't smell it on your lips.

Formula: The formula is fairly thick and very pigmented. I like it because since it's a lipstick it's supposed to have a lot of color, and it does. It doesn't go matte right when you apply it, but if you wait a minute or so then you'll notice it. They are a bit drying, but that's expected from a matte lipstick; if you struggle with chapped or dry lips, just apply your favorite lip balm underneath.

Lasting power: I was expecting it to have great lasting power since it's called 'Lasting Finish', but it's not quite like that. If you don't eat or drink, it does stay for a long time, but the moment you get your lips on a glass it's pretty much gone. That's a little annoying specially since it claims to be lasting, but oh well.

Price: I bought it online from BeautyJoint and it was $6.49, which is pretty good. I didn't know how much it was here in Spain so I went into Juteco's website (since I always buy my makeup at that physical store) and it says their online price is 6.63€ but it's 8.29€ in stores. I think that's pretty ridiculous but that's how much makeup is here, so it doesn't surprise me at all.

Here are some swatches on my arm:

103 is a pretty mauve pink color and I've been wearing it a lot since I got it. This color is very wearable and perfect for any season and occasion.
109 is an orange lipstick (it's a little bit onto the red side as well) and although I don't typically go for this color, I'm really excited to wear it this summer. When I ordered it I thought it was going to be lighter, so it was a little disappointing, but I'm happy with it.

Final thoughts: Overall, I think these lipsticks are great and I might buy another color if I find one that I like. They're not lasting like they claim, but their color and pigmentation makes them worth it.

Have you tried any of these? What are your favorite matte lipsticks?

My Perfume Collection!

I just filmed this to go on my YouTube channel and I thought I'd show you too, specially since some people have been wanting me to post again. I'm currently busy with finals and if I'm not studying or in college, I'm doing something YouTube related, but I promised I was still going to post, so I'm keeping my promise.

I wanted to show you my perfume collection so it can give you ideas on what perfume to buy next, or just in case you need to give a present to someone, perfume is always a good choice.

Someday by Justin Bieber is a very girly and sweet scent. I think most people will like it, even if you're not a Justin Bieber fan. This is currently one of my favorites.
Fame by Lady Gaga is surprisingly a sweet scent. I was expecting it to be more of a night scent, but it's just good for everyday use. Also, don't be scared of the color cause it doesn't stain your clothes.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs is, as expected, a floral scent. It's just a great perfume, I don't even know what else to say about it other than the bottle is just so cute!
Be Delicious Red by DKNY is part of the Be Delicious line, so it smells a bit like apple but it's more of a night scent than the green one (which really smells like apple).

These two are my most youthful scents. The first one is called Stelle Paradise and I don't even remember getting it, but it's a sweet, fresh scent. The second one is Pink Ice by Rue 21 and it's definitely a sweet scent. I'd say it smells like cotton candy, for sure.

 J'Adore by Dior is more of a mature scent and this is actuallt my mom's, but I also use it, so I thought I'd show you. I love the smell of it, and the bottle is gorgeous!
Miss Dior Cherie is my favorite perfume of all time, and that's why it's almost empty and I need to get a new one. It's a musky scent but floral at the same time. It's amazing!

Touch of Pink by Lacoste is a girly, floral, fresh scent. I really like it and this is my second bottle of it.
Custo Barcelona by Custo Barcelona is also a musky scent but sweeter than Miss Dior Cherie, I also really like it!

These are my 4 body mists:
Mango Temptation by Victoria's Secret just smells like mango and I only wear it in the summer time because I think it's more appropriate.
The next two are from H&M: they were only 2.95€ and they're really nice and fresh. The first one smells like pear and cucumber and the second one like guava and fig.
The last one is Fresh & Clean from the Pink line at Victoria's Secret and I don't know how to describe it, but it smells amazing.

I hope you liked this post because it was really fun to write, and if you have any requests for me, please let me know.
