Spring NOTD

Vanessa Thursday, March 31, 2011
Hi !!, I was in the mood to do something cute on my nails and I found an amazing nail artist named Robin Moses who shares her designs with us and decided to made my version of one of them.

I used Orly Plum Noir as base coat and O.P.I Elephantastic Pink, China Glaze For Audrey, China Glaze Spontaneous and China Glaze Solar Power for the flowers :D

Hope you've enjoyed XOXO

MAC Wonder Woman Treats and more

Vanessa Wednesday, March 9, 2011 , , ,

Hi dolls, finally bought some treats from the Wonder Woman collection, I picked up Defiance Eyeshadow quad and Marquis 'D lipstick, I've read mixed reviews on both but I just fell in love with all the shades, everything I picked complements my skin tone. While I was there also picked two more lipsticks, Viva Glam Gaga and Cosmo.

Here are the pictures.

Some people seem to have a problem with the packaging for the WW collection but I just think is fun and bold, comic style is the only right way they could portray Wonder Woman.

The Defiance quad is actually lovely on all skin tones. The only shade that could be a tad too light for deeper skin tones would be the Defiance, which is an iridescent white pink, but even that would look nice as a highlight color under the brow. :)

Marquis 'D lipstick is a sandy cream peach (Lustre finish)
Viva Glam Gaga is a blue based pink, very pigmented and creamy (Lustre finish)
Cosmo lipstick is a neutral pink with soft brown undertones (Amplified Creme finish)

Overall I'm really happy with all, if you want a swatch or a full review let me know in the comment section :)


January and February Favorites

Vanessa Wednesday, March 2, 2011 , , , , , , ,

These are my favorite products lately, have you tried any of them?, what do you think about them? :
Aveeno- Intense Relief Hand Cream:

It claims: Lasts through hand washing, moisturizes for 24 hours non greasy.

My thoughts: I really liked this hand cream, during winter time my skin was extremely dry, even more because I wash my hands constantly, when this hand cream came to my attention I decided to give it a try and it was worth it, will buy this product again and again and again, well I think you all get the point. :)

Clean & Clear Advantage acne spot treatment:

It claims: Oil Free, Salicylic Acid Medication for acne treatment,won't overdry skin.

My thoughts: I've noticed that it really decreases the size of pimples pretty fast and reduce their redness, it didn't dry out my skin. Keep in mind this is a spot treatment, I've had some break outs lately and this had help me keep things under control.

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint:

It claims: Long-lasting moisture, Smoothes on clear, New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips, Gluten-free, Paraben-free, Petrolatum-free, Phthalate-free

My thoughts: I use it every night before I go to bed and every day before I put some lipstick or just by it self. It doesn't feel too greasy, I love the design because it makes it easier for me to quickly put it on.I do feel my lips softer, but for people with severely chapped lips I would recommend something stronger. I love the minty feel and will continue to repurchase.

Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup finish:

It claims: Matte hold on oily skin, weightless mist that holds foundation, eye shadow, blush and concealer Oil Free and Paraben Free.

My thoughts: This product does help my makeup last longer but not all day, the reason it's part of my favorites is because it does keep me looking matte and for the amount of time I need to have my makeup on It does the trick.

Sigma Make me Crazy Brush set:

It claims: 12 brush kit now comes in beautiful colors and inside a durable and multifunctional container! Besides protecting your brushes, this exclusive container transforms into 2 stylish brush holders!

My thoughts: This is great if you want to expand a brush collection, it has 12 brushes and the case is great for travel because it's a hard case. I love purple so when I put my makeup on it makes me happy just by how cute they are. :) I'll do a review of them in another post.

Estée Lauder Soft Duo Bronzer in Amber Bronze rich:

It claims: The shades blend brilliantly to give face, shoulders and décolletage a seductive bronze look. Unique oil-control complex keeps skin shine free and comfortable.

My Thoughts: I have it in Amber Bronze Rich 04 shade and I love it because it blends easily, it's not shimmery and gives my face a very natural glow.

Clean & Clear deep cleaning astringent:

It claims: Formulated to be gentle enough for sensitive skin while still providing a deep clean. It works deep down to the pores and leaves a refreshingly clean feeling. Plus, it contains a milder yet effective level of pimple fighting medicine to help treat and help prevent acne.

My Thoughts: I just love this product, it really works as an astringent, gives you a refreshing feeling and prevent breakouts. I use this at night after cleansing and my skin never turns red.

Garnier Roll-on Anti dark circles:

It claims: Moisturizing eye care and a cooling roller ball refreshes & hydrates tired looking eyes, with mineral pigments instantly covers dark circles

My Thoughts: The reason I like this product is because it's tinted and acts as a concealer. The formula is cooling and feels great, it's easy to apply and for me has made a difference when I look tired .

Too Faced Glamour To Go 2 Pocket Palette:

It claims: Too Faced's Glamour to Go 2 lets you layer your look for refined results. It takes the best-selling Glamour to Go set and adds on four new eyeshadow shades as well as a Glam To Go blush. Eight silky shadows, four juicy lip shades, and one beautiful blush are packed up and perfectly coordinated—so you can get your glam-on-the-go!

My Thoughts: The price is amazing I bought this palette at Ulta and was only $10, it's cute and compact, love the colors because I love neutrals for an everyday look.

China Glaze - Caribbean Temptation:

My Thoughts: This color is a great duochrome shade. It dries quickly and I only need two coats for it to look perfect. Cool toned Fushia shimmer with purple flash I love to have this on my toes.
