Wishlist-21 Days of Beauty Sale

Hello! Hope you’re having a great day. I’m here to talk about beauty, specifically 21 Days of Beauty deals from Ulta Beauty. This year, the sale runs from March 13 to April 2 and has a few “first time steal” as they are calling them. I’m going to be sharing the products I’ll like to buy from the sale.

The first few days aren’t appealing to me, so I’m starting on March 17 with the Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm (first time steal) in the shade Raspberry (deep red berry). It’s going to be 50% off from a regular price of $21. On March 19 the highlighters from Ofra Cosmetics are going to be 50% off from a regular price of $35-40. I already have Rodeo Drive (got it in an Ipsy Bag a few years ago). I want to try the Samantha March Start Inspired Highlighter.

A few eyeshadow palettes from Nabla Cosmetics are going to be 50% off from a regular price of $24-39 on March 21. There are two that are calling my name: Cutie Palette Platinum, has 6 shades; and Secret Palette with 15 shades. The next day, March 22, bareMinerals will have products of the Mineralist line with a 50% off from a regular price of $20-32. I’m interested in the Lip Gloss-Balm in the shades Sincerity (rosewood) and Wonder (burgundy). Also, in the Sunlit Eyeshadow Palette which has 6 shades.

For March 23, Grande Cosmetics will have its GrandeFANATIC Fanning & Curling Mascara at 50% off from a regular price of $25. As well as select wellness items with a 50% off from a regular price of $14-52. From these wellness items, I’ll like to try the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream as I’ve heard amazing things of this product. And there’s going to be the Patchology FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels (30 pair). As for March 26, I’m interested in the Airbrush Buffing Foundation Brush #110 from IT Brushes for ULTA. The brushes will have a 50% off from a regular price of $24.50-28.50

Lastly, on March 29 with 50% off will be the Hydromaniac Glowy Tinted Hydrator Foundation from Urban Decay with a regular price of $29. Smashbox will also have a 50% off on the Be Legendary Line & Prime Pencil, and the Prime & Plush Lipstick. The shades I’m interested are the True Red and Cranberry for the pencil, and Bawse (deep red) and It’s A Mood (cranberry) for the lipstick.

There you have it, those are all the products I’ll love to try from the sale. We’ll see if I end up buying something, of course I’ll let you know all about it 😉 Be sure to let me know if you’ll buy anything or if you have any recommendations.


Will I Buy?-New Launches

Hi guys! Hope you’re healthy and doing good. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

During these days of being at home trying to be productive and not go crazy, I’ve been paying more attention to new makeup collections. As I was scrolling and taking screenshots of everything I was liked (on first impression), I remembered it’s been a while since I’ve done a “Will I Buy?”. So here I am, sharing with you I would love to buy.

DISCLAIMER: All pictures and information have been obtained from the account trendmood on Instagram.

I must tell you that I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes and lip products. So don’t be surprised when you see, that what I love from all the collections are the lipsticks, glosses or eyeshadow palettes. You’ve been warned!

First, the Colourpop x Mulan Collection looks so good. I know it’s been out for a while now, but I love Colourpop’s quality so much. I would buy: the eyeshadow palette (contains 15 shades and retails for $22), Lux Creme Lipstick in Hua Mulan (retails for $9), Lux Gloss in Phoenix (retails for $9), and a blush in ________ retails for $12).

Another collaboration I fell in love with is the one between Ulta Beauty and Marvel’s Black Widow. The eyeshadow palette has 12 shades and retails for $20. As for the lip kit duos, I haven’t decided which shade I like more. But it includes a lip liner and a creamy lipstick (retails for $16). I only own a few eyeliner pencils from Ulta Beauty so I can’t talk about the quality of these products. But they sure do look nice.

I’ve never heard of the brand Zodiac Cosmetics until I saw some new Zodiac Eyeshadow Palettes on trendmood’s Instagram. Each palette retails for $14.99 and contains 12 shades. Sadly, there are a few shades that repeat in every palette and they end up looking quite similar to each other. If I was going to buy one, it will either be Capricorn, Pisces or Taurus.

Then, we have Revolution Pro (from Makeup Revolution) with some jewel-related eyeshadow quads. They retail for $15, which I find a bit expensive for only four shades. But I liked So Jaded, Hidden Jewels and Wild Onyx.

Lime Crime launched the Lip Pops Satin Lipsticks for a retail price of $20 each, which I find expensive for a single lipstick. Don’t know if they’re worth the price because I’ve never tried this brand. But if you like this brand, you can get them in a bundle for $126. The shades I liked more are: Cold Brew (cool taupe brown), Sangria (cool toned red), and Oxblood (deep oxblood red).

These are the more affordable (in my opinion) makeup launches that I would like to buy. From all the products mentioned above, I’m more inclined to buy from the Colourpop x Mulan Collection and Ulta Beauty x Marvel’s Black Widow Collection.


¿Compraré o no?-Nuevos lanzamientos

¡Bienvenidos! Espero que tenga un buen día y se encuentren saludables. No olviden seguirme en las redes sociales:

Durante estos días en casa he tratado de ser lo más productiva posible y no volverme loca. He pasado más tiempo en Instagram, por lo que prestado más atención a las nuevas colecciones de maquillaje. He tomado captura de pantalla (screenshot) de todo lo que me ha interesado y decidí que era tiempo de retomar la serie ¿Compraré o no?

ACLARACIÓN: Toda la información al igual que las fotos fueron tomadas de la cuenta trendmood en Instagram.

Tengo que decirles que me encantan las paletas de sombras y todos los productos labiales. Por lo que no deberían sorprenderse cuando vean que todo lo que quiero de las colecciones son labiales o paletas de sombras. ¡Han sido advertidos!

La primera colección es de Colourpop en colaboración con Mulan y se ve increíble. Salió a la venta hace algún tiempo pero adoro la calidad de los productos Colourpop. Quisiera comprar: la paleta de sombras (contiene 15 tonos y cuesta $22), Lux Creme Lipstick en Hua Mulan ($9), Lux Gloss en Phoenix ($9), y un rubor en ______ ($12).

Otra colaboración que me encantó es entre Ulta Beauty y la Viuda Negra (Black Widow) de Marvel. La aleta de sombras tiene 12 tonos, por tan solo $20. Aún no he decidido cuál “lip kit duo” me gusta más. Estos incluyen un delineador de labios y un lápiz labial cremoso por solo $16. No puedo hablar sobre la calidad de estos tipos de productos de Ulta Beauty porque lo único que tengo son delineadores de ojos. Pero se ven muy bien.

Nunca había escuchado sobre la marca Zodiac Cosmetics hasta que vi unas paletas de sombras del Zodíaco nuevas en el Instagram de trendmood. Cada paleta cuesta $14.99 y contiene 12 tonos. Lamentablemente, hay varios colores que se repiten en cada paleta, lo que hace que se vean similares. Si fuera a comprar alguna sería Capricorn, Pisces or Taurus.

Luego tenemos a Revolution Pro (de Makeup Revolution) con unos quad de sombras relacionados con piedras preciosas. Los encuentro algo caros, ya que son $15 por solo cuatro colores. Pero me gustaron So Jaded, Hidden Jewels y Wild Onyx.

Lime Crime lanzó los Lip Pops Satin Lipsticks a $20 cada uno, lo que me parece algo caro por un solo labial. No sé si son suficientemente buenos como para justificar ese precio. Pero si les gusta esta marca pueden obtener todos los labiales en un set por $126. Los colores que me gustan son: Cold Brew (cool taupe brown), Sangria (cool toned red), y Oxblood (deep oxblood red).

Estos son los lanzamientos de maquillaje más económicos/asequibles (en mi opinión) que me gustaría comprar. De todos los productos mencionados anteriormente, me inclino más a comprar de las colecciones de Colourpop x Mulan y Ulta Beauty x Marvel’s Black Widow.


2018 Favorites-Makeup & Non-Makeup

Hi guys!  Welcome to the last blog post of the year (“Whaaat?”-minion voice).  It’s been a great year: I started this blog, obtained my Masters degree, and got a job at a retail store.  I don’t do New Year’s resolutions but feel free to share yours in the comment section. Now let’s talk about makeup and non-makeup favorites.

First, I discovered a face moisturizer that hydrates my skin without making me look like a grease ball and that will be Hydra Genius Daily Moisturizer for oily skin from L’oreal.  For taking my makeup off, I use a Micellar Foaming Cleanser for combination to oily skin, from Garnier Skin Active.  It takes all my makeup off, including waterproof mascara, without leaving my face feeling super dry.  As for my hair, I’ve been loving Herbal Essences Curl Defining mousse (strong hold) and discovered the amazingness of Aussie Kids Detangler in Bloomin’ Apple.  Smells good and incredibly helps with my knotty-curly hair.  Lastly for non-makeup products, I absolutely love ULTA Beauty’s Shadow Switching Pan for using the same eyeshadow brush repeatedly with different colors.

Now, I have a lot of favorites products in the makeup section (majority are drugstore/affordable).  Many of them, I’ve talked before so I’ll link the blog post.  For base products, the most I’ve been using are L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation in 104 Golden Beige (blog post), Covergirl Clean Matte bb cream in 520 Light (blog post), Colourpop’s No Filter Concealer in Light 16, Colourpop’s No Filter sheer pressed powder in Light (blog post), and Maybelline Master Fix loose powder in Translucent.  For bronzer I have two: Bettina Sun Splash Bronzing Powder in Light to Medium, and Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Deep Bronzer (blog post).  For blush I have: Maybelline Fit Me in 10 Buff, Lottie London Blush Crush in zac, and Morphe Blush in Spirit.  These two last blushes I got in my Ipsy bag.  Last face product is highlighter, Smashbox X Casey Holmes Spotlight Palette in Gold and Pearl, Wet ‘n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in 319B Blossom Glow (blog post), and Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette in 032 Solstice (blog post).

For the eyebrows I used mostly the NYC Browser Bush-On Brow Kit in 876 Brunette but because of some Ipsy bags, I found two brow pencils that I like.  The Arch Arrival Brow Definer in 02 Taupe Tom from Sugar, and Skone Brow Wand in Chocolate.  I also have two eyeshadow palettes that I’ve been using like crazy: Pérsona Identity palette and Maybelline Soda Pop palette (blog post).  Love the ULTA Beauty Gel Eye Liners in general, but I have four colors: Black Out, Black Brown, Olive, and Bronze.  The two mascaras I’ve been using throughout the year are L’oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof in Blackest Black, and Covergirl Flourish by Lash Blast in Very Black (blog post).  The last products are for the lips: Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks, Colourpop Lux Lipsticks, and L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Lipgloss.

These are all my favorite products for this year 2018. What products were your favorites through the year? Let’s talk in the comment section.
