2016 Return 

Hey lovely followers! It’s been a very long time since I have been on.. Real life kicked me in the butt and I couldn’t handle it anymore. Everything is back to normal and I’m almost finished with school so I’m ready to get back to blogging!!! I’ve purchased so much makeup and I’m so excited to start reviewing!!!! I missed you all so much❤️ 

See you soon xoxo!

First Impression 

Happy Saturday my fellow bloggers!

My Saturday has been full on relax, TV & food since its been gloomy and ready to pour here in Orlando ⛅️

So, I decided I’d make a post about a little gift I received yesterday…..I was super excited to try out the Physicians formula organic wear CC mascara “ultra black” on my Asian lashes. The packaging claims to curl + care at the same time with 100% natural origin, 70% organic plus a 24 hour wear.

 ~These are my eyelashes after giving them a curl before mascara *Excuse my hideous eyebrows I’ve been trying to grow them out a little*. Once I opened the bottle, the scent of green tea just smacked me in the face, it was sort of refreshing.
  ~This is after one coat of the mascara. The second I opened the bottle, the scent of green tea just smacked me in the face, it was sort of refreshing. The application was pretty simple with the curved silicone brush, it does separate your lashes really well. The formula is not wet but not dry either. I was pretty impressed with it because my curl didn’t flop down automatically but it did sting for some odd reason on my lash line. The color does make my eye look brighter, awake, and more defined.

 ~This is after the second coat, which I regret because they started to stick together and I had to use a comb to separate them. I was still very impressed with how well my curl was held. After a couple of minutes I did notice they weren’t drying and sort of just got sticky so if you rub your eye the lashes will get stuck together.

In conclusion, I was impressed with how my curl was held, how defined my lashes looked, and that it didn’t have any clumps but I didn’t like the formula at all. It made my eye burn and it just never dried, it continued to stay sticky. I would recommend only using one coat because they look natural and not stuck together.

Hope you guys enjoyed!

Blogging Essentials

blogging essentials

Good afternoon beauties!! ☀️

It’s a sunny day today in Orlando so I thought I would get in a blog before going out😊 Todays post is about my blogging essentials (I am not trying to brag for any reason, these items are things I’ve accumulated over the years as gifts)

Let’s begin!

IMG_5840

  • Canon EOS rebel T3 12.2 mp

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Canon/42286713

2 years ago I thought it was a great idea to ask for a camera for my 15th birthday just because everyone had one blah blah blah.. Worst mistake ever till now, only because I used it probably 4 times prior to starting my blog.. No you don’t necessarily need this but if you want good focus & more professional pictures on your blog it’s a good choice. It’s not a brand new 2015 camera but it does still work as good as the new ones. If you’re interested in getting a camera I would suggest this one, in the link it’s more expensive because of a lens it comes with which I don’t recommend yet. FullSizeRender copy 2

  • Forever 21 Hello Kitty notepad 

My dear sister got me a 2 pack of these notepads for my 16th birthday and I never wanted to use them because they were soooo cute! But now I decided to since they were small, travel sized and sort of personal. I keep all my ideas & dates written down as reminders and memories 😊

FullSizeRender (1)

  • Green water bottle Dollar Tree 

Who doesn’t love an afternoon trip to the dollar store???? I can go there everyday & leave the store with a bunch of unnecessary things. I can’t be the only one right? On those long editing days you gotta stay hydrated for extra energy & brain flow.

  • iPhone 6 

A phone is extremely important for me & blogging because you can blog, edit pics, receive updates, most importantly SOCIAL MEDIA😍and check out other bloggers on the go. Doesn’t HAVE to be an iPhone but something in the same range ya know??

  • Dark chocolate “choceur” 

Obviously I had to leave the best for last. A late night snack for long editing nights/days where you can’t even leave your room because you might wake the rest of your family. I purchased this at my local ALDI super market yesterday for $1.20 & let me tell you it’s DELICIOUS❗️❗️

Well my fellow readers that’s it for today💋 If you have any requests or ideas please let me know!!!!

ULTA HAUL!!!!

ulta haul edit

Happy Wednesday & National lipstick day!💄☀️

Im back after a month full of doubts and regrets😔 How have you guys been? I’ve been ok, enjoying the last bit of my summer break before I start the most exciting year left -SENIOR YEAR!!!!- So, because of that I did some retail therapy over at my favorite place Ulta because I have my senior portraits soon and i decided to do my own makeup. What’s even better was that most of their makeup lines were buy one get one 50% off!!!!!! Obviously I had to splurge💁🏽

Ps- I have not tried these products on my skin yet except the moisturizer. Also, the prices on this haul are without the discount Each product Below $15 originally!! 

(posting reviews soon)

concealer

  • NYX HD Concealer Photogenic in CW 06 “Glow”  $4.99

What really caught my attention was the fact it said “HD” and “photogenic”. Ive heard a lot of good reviews about this concealer as it was being compared to the Makeup Forever HD concealer so I decided to give this one a try because it was on the cheaper side. Funny story though, I bought this previously twice in the wrong shades which led to awkward returns and purchases at the same store with the same workers 3 times in one week😂🙈

eyeliner WP

  • NYX Retractable Eyeliner WaterProof in MPE02 “Black” $4.49

I didn’t really do any research on this product really because I needed to restock on eyeliner. It sort of intrigued me though because of its price so I said what the heck..

loose powderloose powder open

  • NYC Smooth Skin loose face powder in 741A “Translucent” $2.79

One lovely day, I was on youtube watching makeup reviews and one popped up for this product. Let’s just say I fell in love with how flawless and smooth the youtubers face looked that I had to buy it THAT day. ( EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE!!!) So, I did. Disappointing part though,  I don’t really like the packaging because every time I open it some of the powder falls 😔

IMG_5796 IMG_5797

  • NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in 565 $3.99

I just realized that they don’t have a name for their lipstick…that’s odd…Anyways, as you can tell i’m a little tan and choosing lip colors is really hard for me but this one OMG I can’t believe how natural looking and beautiful it looks! I can’t wait to try it! By the swatch I could tell how buttery it was & pigmented so thats a plus.

IMG_2173pallete

  • NYX Natural Shadow Palette $7.49

For this palette, I did do some research because its for my senior portrairs and I wanted to look as natural as possible. It did look awesome when the youtubers reviewed/demoed it. I’m sort of disappointed though 😦 As you can see below, they aren’t as pigmented and feel a little chalky. I havent played with this palette yet, so I really don’t know how well they work out & blend.

pallete swatchIMG_2181

What I did enjoy though is that you can create 2 looks: Day & Night!

powder foundpowder packaging

  • ULTA Double Duty wet&Dry pressed powder foundation in “Warm Tan” $12.50

 This product is by far my favorite, the texture is so soft and sort of buttery but sort of not.. You get me?? What I love about Ulta is that you can swatch products except the drugstore brands. When I swatched this on my jawline it looked so natural my mom didn’t even notice I was wearing anything. This is definitely not for my senior portrait makeup but for sure an everyday school necessity. Even better it was on sale for 5 fricking dollars!! FIVEEEEEE

moisturizer

  • Clean & Clear dual action moisturizer $5.29

Ive been on the hunt for a good but not oily moisturizer & let me tell you I AM IN LOVE!!!! It claims to say “moisturizes dry skin, treats & helps prevent pimples” let me tell you that in fact  it does do everything it says. I say this because it’s almost that time of month and i’ve been using this for about 2 weeks and usually i get a couple pimples near my nose but this month NOTHING, not even a slight red mark NOTHING!!!!

I forgot to include these bad boys in the Ulta haul image but better late than never! Am I right ladies???😂IMG_5798IMG_5671

  • ULTA nail laqcuer (left to right) X-DRY, DARK DENIM, & BASECOAT $6 each

 Ugh, indescribable how much I love this color on my tan skin! Clearly matched my bed comforter hahaha. The x-dry and basecoat made the nail laqcuer last about 2 weeks with 2 coats of the dark denim, which was impressive because I volunteer at an animal clinic so i’m always cleaning & scrubbing. Each of these were on sale for $2

Well ladies what’d ya think for a comeback??? If you want a full review on a certain product mentioned, please let me know! ☺️

Thanks for reading & have an amazing Wednesday/ National lipstick day!

XOXO,

Hey guys!!

So as you can see, this is my first post and first blog ever.. I’m really excited to share my reviews and help others as well.

Lets start off with a little bit about me, my name is Paula I’m 17 years old & a senior in highschool. I was born and raised in Colombia but live in Orlando now. I’ve always had an interest in makeup but didn’t really know how to approach it.. I have oily skin which sucks, mostly during the summer because I can’t wear foundation products as much to go with my cute outfits. In conclusion, this blog is for all my oily face girls or boys out there who need help choosing products that will last and still look good mid-day.

Feel free to leave any comments/questions or advice for my blog it’d be greatly appreciated 🙂

xoxo, Paula
