¿Compraría de nuevo?

¡Hola! Hablemos de esos productos que utilizamos completamente, nos gusten o no. Los míos incluyen maquillaje, productos para la piel y materiales de bisutería. Les diré lo que me gusta y lo que no, además si los he comprado nuevamente o no. Aquí vamos.

Comenzando con los productos para la piel, el primero es humectante. Utilicé el humectante Hydra Genius para piel grasa de L’oreal. Me gustó este producto porque ayuda con la hidratación de la piel pero no se siente pesado ni grasoso. La fórmula es en gel, la cual prefiero para mi piel grasa, ya que se absorbe rápidamente dejando mi cara sintiéndose fresca.

Otro producto es la crema que utilizo para quitarme el maquillaje antes de lavarme la cara. Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser, lo aplico con mis manos y lo remuevo con un algodón. Luego utilizo un jabón para remover el maquillaje que queda y la sensación grasosa que deja. Llevo varios años usándolo porque remueve prácticamente todo.

Ahora, tengo la categoría con la mayor cantidad de productos: MAQUILLAJE. Un producto que compro una y otra vez, es la base Infallible Pro-Matte de L’oreal. Con eso deben saber lo mucho que me gusta, pero si quieren saber por qué, sólo presionen aquí para leer la entrada que escribí hace algunos meses. Tengo dos correctores (concealer) de los que quiero hablarles, ambos son económicos y con gran cobertura. El primero es Colourpop No Filter Concealer, pueden leer mi opinión presionando aquí. El otro es Clean Matte Concealer de Covergirl, tiene menos cobertura que el de Colourpop pero es bueno. He comprado varias veces el corrector de Colourpop, aunque no el de Covergirl.

Tengo dos productos de Maybelline, un rubor de la línea Fit Me! en el color Buff y el polvo suelto Master Fix Loose Setting Powder en translúcido. Estos productos han sido mis favoritos por varios meses. El rubor es un color crema-rosado que me parece perfecto para principiantes porque no aplica mucho color de una vez y combina con todo.

Otro polvo suelto que me gusta es el Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock en translúcido. Al igual que el polvo de Maybelline, se ve bien sobre el maquillaje. El último producto de maquillaje es el Brow Stylist Plumper Mascara de L’oreal. No recuerdo cuándo comencé a utilizar este producto, pero llevo varios años usándolo y me encanta.

Ahora, mi hilo y “seed beads” (cuentas 11/0 y 15/0) favoritos son de Artbeads. Como siempre, trato de comprar estos materiales cuando hay alguna venta o necesito colores nuevos.

Esos son todos los productos que me han gustado lo suficiente comp ara volverlos a comprar. ¿Cuáles son los tuyos?

Repurchase or Not??

Hi guys! Let’s talk about those products we use up, whether we like them or not. Mine include makeup, skin related and beading materials. I’ll tell you what I like of them, what I don’t and if I had purchased them again or not. Let’s begin.

Starting with skin related products, the first one is my moisturizer. I used up the L’oreal Hydra Genius Moisturizer for oily skin, I enjoyed this product because it help with hydration but wasn’t oily/greasy feeling. It’s a gel formula, which I prefer for my oily skin, that absorbs quickly and leaves my face feeling fresh. I didn’t repurchase this product because I noticed some dry skin on my face, so I decided to try another moisturizer.

Another product was the cleanser I use to take off my makeup before washing my face. The Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser (with the green cap), I massage it all over my face and take it off with a cotton round. After that I go in with a cleanser to finish taking off the makeup and the greasy feeling the Pond’s cleanser leaves. Always repurchase this one, I love how easy it takes the makeup off even when I have to wash my face afterwards.

Next, we have the category with more products: MAKEUP. A product I buy over and over again is the Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation from L’oreal. That must say how much I love it, but if you want to know more about it just click here to read the post I wrote. I have two concealers to talk about, both affordable and with great coverage. The first one is the Colourpop No Filter Concealer for which you can read what I think of it by clicking here. The other one is the Clean Matte Concealer from Covergirl, it has a little less coverage than the Colourpop one but is good. I’ve repurchased the Colourpop concealer a few times already, but not the Covegirl one.

I have two products from Maybelline, Fit Me! Blush in Buff and Master Fix Loose Setting Powder in Translucent. These products have been favorites for quite some time now, and they never dissapoint. The blush is a pinky-nude that needs to be build up and goes with every look you want to rock. The loose powder sets my makeup nicely without making me look cakey.

Another loose setting powder I enjoyed using was the L’oreal Infallibe Pro-Sweep & Lock in translucent. Same as the Maybelline one, it sets the makeup nicely. The last makeup product is also from L’oreal, but this time is the Brow Stylist Plumper Mascara. I don’t even remember when I started using this product, all I know is that I love setting my brows in place with this after filling them up.

Now, my favorite beading thread and seed beads (size 11/0 & 15/0) are from Artbeads. As always, I try to buy when there’s a sale to stock up on materials I’m need or new colors.

Those are all the products that I’ve loved enough to keep buying them. Let me know about yours.

Let’s keep in touch!

Fusion Beads & Artbeads Review

Para leer esta reseña en Español, haz click aquí: Reseña de Fusion Beads y Artbeads

What my first post should be about?  After giving this question a lot of thought (got a headache out of it) my brain clicked.  I was kind of irritated with myself for taking so long to figure out what to write about.  I concluded that my first post should be about my passion since I was like 8 or 9 years old…Making jewelry!  This blog is intended for reviews, so I’m going to be giving you my thoughts on beads from two websites.

The websites are Fusion Beads and Artbeads, these are online stores for jewelry making stuff.  They sell basically everything you would need for any kind of technique you use or want to get into.  As well as kits with beads, thread, and instructions so you can get the finished project done.  I tend to buy a lot of 11/0 seed beads because that’s basically all I use for my beading projects.

11 0 seed beads (Artbeads & FusionBeads)

As you can see, I have some experience with their 11/0 seed beads.  I’ve been a customer of them for 2 or 3 years now and I don’t regret the investment in the beads.  Both sites have a great variety of colors, although Fusion Beads 11/0 seed beads are rounder than Artbeads.  I guess it all depends on the project, for charms or beaded loom bracelets I tend to use Artbeads, so the finished product has a squarer shape.  But for necklaces, earrings or other types of bracelets I can get away with using Fusion Beads.  Also, the colors don’t fade or transfer, so you don’t have to worry about having colorful marks on your skin or clothes and the jewelry would last looking as if it were new.

In conclusion, if you want great quality beads, amazing prices (products often go on sale! *wink wink*), reasonable shipping prices, and excellent customer service.  Fusion Beads and Artbeads have all those characteristics and a great variety in beads, findings, charms, etc.  So next time you need some materials, or you became interested in making jewelry, don’t doubt visiting the Fusion Beads or Artbeads website.

If you have any question or want to share your experience, please don’t hesitate to share it in the comments section.  Also, if you want me to review other website for jewelry making material, or anything makeup/skincare related; please feel free to share it in the comments section.
