February Favorites • 2013

So hi everyone! New month, new post.

This month was that type of month where I rediscovered products that I had buried on my drawer.

 I went to a family trip so when it was time to pack some makeup, I took the ones that I wasn't using a lot!

Here I am, with my favorites from the past month.

To see my January Favorites click here

L'oreal Magic Lumi Concealer // in Fair
I really like this concealer. Is a liquid concealer in a clickable pen form; really similar to the YSL Touche Eclat. It lights up your whole face and provides a very subtle highlight that looks very natural! I use it for covering under eye circles and any imperfection!

Smith's Rosebud Salve Balm // Tube Form
This is a must for me; I know, again an unnecessary lip product more to have! But this is a multipurpose lip balm. It can be used to sooth dry lips and skin, 
diaper rash, blemishes, rough cuticles, and may soften rough hands. When you use it on your lips it gives the look of a lipgloss. On the lips it feels really soft!

Maybelline Color Tattoo // in Bad to the Bronze
I freakin love this thing! I use it really often! It looks like you put so much effort on your makeup    when you really sweep the cream eyeshadow on your lid and tadaa! It's so creamy, and it glides really smoothly on your lids!

OPI Nail Laquer // in You Don't Know Jaques!
Originally released as part of the OPI's Fall 2008 La Collection de France, but now part of the OPI's classics line because of it's popularity. It's a really pretty dark, cool toned taupe color! It looks really classic and elegant on the nails.

Too Faced Eye Love Palette
I love this palette. I think is a pretty nice deal if you don't have any of the Too Faced Palettes like me. It has 2 shades of each palette. 
My favorites are Satin Sheets, Like a Virgin and Ever after!

Lush Shower Gel // in Snow Fairy
If you are a fan of sweets scents as me, this shower gel is just for you! The formula is a bit thick so you don't need a lot when you are using it because otherwise your shower is going to be filled of bubbles and foam!

Tangle Teezer
I can't stop raving about this product! It's one of that products that I would take to a deserted island with me. All my life I have had the problem with tangles! Pretty much knots and tangles in my hair are the story of my life, especially after the shower! This detangles everything in seconds! If you want a more in depth review about it just comment about it!

Delirium Book by Lauren Oliver
This book made me cry in so many parts especially in the end! WHYY LAUREN OLIVER!?! WHYYY THE WORST CLIFFHANGER IN THE END!?! Again this is a dystopian young adult romance book!

Yankee Candle // in Home Sweet Home
I love this one! It has hints of cinnamon in it, which I love! It has a really warm and cozy smell!

Favorite TV shows and movies:

Pretty Little Liars
So, PLL deserves every month this space in my posts. No more comments about the topic.

Silver Linings Playbook
Great plot, amazing cast and the best mix of drama, romance and comedy!

A Good Day to Die Hard
A really good action movie to watch when you need that bit of action and thriller in your life!

Favorite song of the month

- Cough Syrup by Young the Giant

What were your favorites from the past month? Any songs, beauty product, book, etc?

Maybelline Baby Lips Review

So hi guys! Today I'm doing a review of the famous Maybelline Baby Lips. When I saw these at my local drugstore I knew I had to try them. I started with the peppermint flavor one and then it was when all started, my love for these lip balms!

Today I am writing my thoughts about these lip balms. Hope you like it!

First off I am just impressed with these drugstore lip products! They really do what they promote; moisturizing! They leave your lips hydrated and smelling good!

The packaging is sort of like a lipstick tube where you can twist the bottom and the lip balm comes up.

They are great for throwing something really fast to your lips when you are running out the door! You don't even need a mirror for applying these!

Something that I found about these is to first use them a couple of times and then you are going to start feeling the flavor! So don't get disappointed when you first use it!

Depending on which one you have is the color payoff and smell you are going to get!

From left to right:

Maybelline Baby Lips // 05 Quenched
Quenched is one of two baby lips that is clear. It has SPF 20. This one has some notes of lemon in it, kinda like a lemonade flavor!

Maybelline Baby Lips // 10 Peppermint
This one is the other clear one in the collection! It has SPF 20 as well. The flavor in this one is like the name describes it; pure peppermint! This makes your lips feel really fresh and I think this one is definitely one of my favorites!

Maybelline Baby Lips // 15 Cherry Me
The smell on this one has to be one of my favorites! It reminds me a lot of my childhood, it has a smell like the cherry sweets I used to eat when I was a kid. This one gives a berry flush of color to your lips.

From left to right:

Maybelline Baby Lips // 20 Grape Vine
This one leaves a subtle plumy look on your lips! It smells really good. This one is my moms favorite because of the smell, it really smells like grape gum!

Maybelline Baby Lips // 25 Pink Punch
The smell of this one screams spring to me! The color of this one is a really pretty everyday pink! It's really wearable!

Maybelline Baby Lips // 30 Peach Kiss
This one is the perfect nude lip balm! This one is great for daytime and it's smell like peach (obviously)!

Here are some swatches of the ones that leave some color payoff on your lips:

This is the color payoff of 2 swipes! As you can see they have color payoff but at the same time is sheer leaving a natural flush of color! These are pretty much a staple for every bag on the go!

Well, that's everything I have to say about these! Hope these review helped some of you!

January Favorites • 2013

So, hi everyone.
A new year is here, that means some updates to my Blog. I am probably starting with monthly favorites! I am really excited because you will get a chance to see what I have been loving every month!

From beauty to random stuff!

Hope you guys like this; this is going to be a way for me to stay on track with posts! AND by the way I know I have been leaving Saturday Favorites on the side but I don't know if you guys are enjoying them! Please leave in the comments if you would like me to continue with them!

So now let's better hop into the favorites!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream // in medium
I am one of those people who don't really enjoy foundation, so I decided to give a try to BB creams. I have just tried this one but I already love it. It feels really lightweight on your skin, it doesn't even looks like you are wearing any makeup. Something that I really like is that it has SPF 30! I don't use this everyday, I just use it when I'm having a bad skin day!
You can get it here

Victoria's Secret Ultimate Look shadow trio // in royal
When I want a really fast makeup look this is what I go for. I mainly just use the lightest shade in this trio, it such a pretty cold pink! I apply it in my inner corner, on my eyebrow bone and if I am in a hurry I put it even all over my lid!
You can get it here

Benefit Eye Bright
I got this in a value set from benefit a long time ago! It was the product that I was less interested in the set, until I learned how to use it! I thought it was just an eyeliner, BUT I WAS WRONG. I use it now for highlighting my inner corner, under my eyes, under my brow bone and even all over the lid! The trick that I learned is to put a little bit on your finger, it's going to feel like cream eyeshadow and then apply wherever you want!
You can get it here

Maybelline Baby Lips // in "peppermint" and "peach kiss"
The maybelline baby lips are probably the best lip product out there in the drugstores. They are amazing!!! If you follow me in Instagram you will se that after I tried my first one I could not stop, I had to buy all of them. They are really moisturizing! More details on a future review about them!
You can get them here and here

Bath & Body Works body lotion// in Country Apple
I'm a fan of getting out of the shower and applying body lotion after! This has been amazing, mainly for the smell! I am almost out of this body lotion! It last a long time and every time I put it on everybody likes it! I am horrible at describing scents but here's a description by Bath & Body Works:
"this fresh combination of ripe, red apples and creamy blossoms is as delightful as an orchard in springtime"
You can buy it here

OPI Nail Polish// in "Tickle My France-y"
This color is definitely one of my all time favorite nail polishes! I got it a year ago in the "most popular OPI set"! It's the perfect neutral pink, that gives a really elegant polish look to your nails! I have a mini size one, but I would definitely repurchase one when I finish this mini bottle!
You can buy it here

John Frieda Frizz- Ease Conditioning Spray
I am a big fan of John Frieda products. I was in the look for a detangler for my hair since it's such a pain to comb my hair after the shower! This product leaves my hair so soft, smooth and tangle free, plus it leaves a  really good smell on my hair!
You can get it here

Vichy Eau Thermale Spa Water
My mom got this in a set for her birthday and since she doesn't use thermal water on her face she gave this to me! This thing is AMAZING! It has done so good to my skin! I always use it at night after washing my face, before applying my moisturizer! It leaves your skin hydrated and smooth!
You can get it here

Now for random favorites:

Slatkin & Co. Scented Candle // in Caribbean Escape
I am a huge candle lover. This have been the one I have been burning recently and I love it.
You can get it here

Divergent Book by Veronica Roth
I am a huge book lover. I actually read this book in December but I decided to add it to to my favorites. This book is my favorite book ever! Its a dystopian young adult book, if you want to know more about it you can go here

MK watch // Silver Small Runway Chronograph 5428
This was my gift for christmas and I love it, it just goes with everything, it's really great quality, it's simple and silver! You can get it here

Favorite TV shows and movies:

Pretty Little Liars
I am a huge PLL fan and I am more obsessed because PLL IS BACK, so I have been obsessing with PLL!

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
I  wasn't a huge fan of the Las Vegas CSI, but I have been watching it lately and it has transform in one of my fav TV shows next to castle and criminal minds!

Catch and Release
This is a great movie, starring Jennifer Garner. Great for a movie night in!
