NYX Hydra Touch Primer Review | For Dry Skin

When you have bought the same product three times already I think it’s time to talk about it, in fact, what have I been waiting for? NYX Hydra Touch primer came to slay my whole life and to make me forget I even have dry skin. It retails for $14.99, hydrates and smooths the skin for a perfect canvas.

Cuando has comprado el mismo producto treces veces yo creo que ya es hora de hablar de el, de hecho, no se que había estado esperando. NYX Hydra Touch primer es el primer ideal para piel seca. Cuesta $14.99, hidrata la piel tanto que hasta se te olvida que la tenías seca y lo mejor de todo, ayuda a que tu maquillaje dura todo el día. 

You have to know by now that I have dry skin and this year in particular I decided to take care of my skin. That included being in a hunt for a hydrating primer. After trying a few I gave this guy a try and I have never gone back and I don’t think I will in a while. 

Saben que mi piel es seca y desde que decidí cuidar mi piel y darle los cariñitos que le hacen falta, fui en busca de productos hidratantes en especial un primer. Quería un primer hidratante, porque al mi piel ser seca, un primer matte hará que mis lineas de expresión resalten y que la piel se vea mas seca aun. 

I picked this one up, because of it’s price and because it said it was hydrating. I LOVED it, well you can tell by now since I’ve bought 3. It’s consistency is like a water gel, super thin and light weight. The skin absorbs all the product so anyone can use it. Makes your makeup last all day and it helps improve the texture of your skin and achieve that smooth and dewy look. 

Honestamente escogí este por su precio económico, y porque obviamente decía que era hidratante. Me E NA MO RÉ. Realmente hidrata la piel como nada en esta vida lo hará. Su consistencia es como un “water gel”, bien liviana y sientes ese frío en la piel al aplicarlo, algo que me fascina. Hace que tu maquillaje dure todo el día y se vea mas luminoso y tu piel mas saludable. Lo aplico en el rostro y en el cuello antes de usar maquillaje y aunque no use también. No especifica para que tipo de piel es, pero pienso que lo puede usar cualquiera ya que la consistencia es bien liviana y el rostro absorbe el producto completamente. 

Es mi favorito y desde que lo compre no he probado ninguno otro. Déjenme saber cual usan ustedes y si ya lo han probado, qué tal? Como siempre, no olviden seguirme en las redes sociales para mantenernos conectados y gracias siempre por leer.

It’s my favorite, I absolutely love it and I’m so glad I came across it. Please try it, you’ll love it too. As always add me on social media so we can stay connected and, of course, let me know what you think If you have tried it.

Purple Glam Using Kathleen Lights X Colourpop Dream St. Palette

Hey, Dolls! For today’s look, I went for a purple mauve. I wanted to play around with the Dream st. palette by Kathleen Lights and this is what I came up with. I absolutely love the shimmer shades from this palette, they are very pigmented, creamy and easy to work with. If you have this palette show me some looks you’ve created.

Una lista de “empties”. ¿Los volveré a comprar?

Para algunas personas, el que un producto se acabe es gratificante. Para mí, no. Es solo una indicación de que tienes que ir por un remplazo y claro está, gastar dinero. Al mismo tiempo se siente bien abrir un nuevo producto de maquillaje. Presumo que es un “love & hate situation”. Por el momento, les muestro los productos que ya se me han acabado y si los volvería a comprar.

A List of Makeup Empties.

 

For some people, hitting pan on a beauty product is satisfying. To me, it is sad. It only means you are out and have to go get a replacement. Then again, it is very exciting to open a new one. I guess it is a love and hate type of thing. As of for now, I’ll share all my makeup empties or the ones I’ve hit pan on and if I’ll buy them again.

Milani Cosmetics Product Review

Earlier this month I bought a bunch of goodies from the Milani brand and after using them everyday I’m ready to give you my thoughts and weather I would buy them again or not. 

 

A principio de mes compre unos cuantos “goodies” de la marca Milani Cosmetics y luego de usarlos  todos los días durante todo el mes de marzo, ya estoy lista para darles mi opinión. 

 

MAKE IT DEWY 3-IN-1 SETTING SPRAY HYDRATE + ILLUMINATE + SET

I was very excited to try this, because not a lot of drugstore brands have setting sprays, in fact I only now of the Infallible setting spray and the NYX Matte setting spray. So, I picked up this guy after Kathleen lights raving about the original one AND… I did not like it ( crying face) It smells really good but the mist is all over the place. It sprays in two ways, one goes to your head and the other one to your neck. You end up with all your body sprayed but your face. I was upset because its only $4 dollars and it smells really good. I won’t throw it away, I’ll use it to wet the brushes for highlight. 

 

Estaba bien emocionada de probar este setting spray, por que no muchas marcas de farmacia tienen setting sprays, de echo, los únicos que conozco son el Infallible setting spray de Maybelline y el NYX Matte setting spray. Lo compre, después de ver unos cuantos videos de Kathleen Lights hablando de lo bueno que es, aunque ella usa el original. NO me gustó ( carita llorando) El mist cae por todas partes menos en el rostro. Sale como dos chorros de agua, uno para la cabeza y otro para el cuello. Terminas con todo el cuerpo bañado en setting spray menos el rostro. Estaba bien decepcionada porque lo que cuesta son $4 dólares y huele bien rico. No lo botaré, lo usaré para humedecer las brochas cuando me aplique highlight.

 

PREP + SET + GLOW ILLUMINATING TRANSPARENT POWDER

I wanted a compact powder so I picked up this guy that said it was illuminating. Now, the illuminating part I’m not sure about, or at least I was expecting it to give a certain kind of glow.  It’s definitely not matte so I don’t mind. The transparent powder part got me shocked. It really is transparent, you can’t see the powder in your face, but it’s there. You can notice the difference between the wet foundation and when it has been set with the powder. It really is amazing. I will still buy it again, because I was looking for a powder that’s not matte and this guy right here isn’t. 

 

Quería un polvo compacto, así que escogí este que prometía ser luminoso y transparente. La parte de que sea luminoso todavía no estoy muy segura, pero tampoco es matte, así que no me molesta. De que es transparente si lo es y es lo mas que me tiene asombrada. Literal no puedes ver el polvo en el rostro, pero si nota que sello el maquillaje. Me tiene algo enamorada y definitivamente lo compraría otra vez.

 

STROBELIGHT INSTANT GLOW POWDER

This one got me excited too. It’s the first drugstore highlighter I own. I could never get my hands on the wet & wild one so I was pretty excited. I love it, it truly highlights your face and lasts all day. I’m in love with the price, only $10 ,and the consistency. You definitely want to try this one out and of course I’l buy it again. 

 

Este también me tenia bastante emocionada y es que, nunca he tenido un iluminador de farmacia, por que no hay muchos, y nunca pude conseguir el iluminador de Wet & Wild. Me encantó, tiene buena pigmentación y dura todo el día. Es una combinación de blanco y rosado. Cuesta $10 solares y me parece perfecto en precio, tamaño y pigmentación. 

 

PRIME PERFECTION HYDRATING + PORE-MINIMIZING FACE PRIMER

This one got me sold with two words, hydrating and pore minimizing, which are the two things I want in a primer. I have very, very dry skin and it’s always nice to hide those pores to get that luminous look. The primer hides the pores and is very long lasting, but I didn’t felt it was hydrating at all. It gets very tacky, which I guess is what makes the make up last, but definitely  not hydrating, or at least not as I would like. I ended up mixing it with my NYX Hydra Touch primer to get that extra boost of hydration. I won’t buy it again, because it didn’t live to my expectations. 

 

Este me convenció con dos palabras, “hydrating & pore minimizing”. Al tener la piel seca siempre busco que todos los productos sea hidratantes y por tenerla tan seca resalta las lineas de expresión y los poros, así que al ver esto me llamo mucho la atención. No me resultó, si dura todo el día y minimiza los poros, pero no sentí que fuera hidratante. Su consistencia es un poco gruesa y al aplicarla sientes como unos granitos, tipo scrub, algo raro. Al secarse se siente pegajosa, que supongo es lo que hace que dure todo el día. No me gusto, por que no era lo que yo esperaba y siento que no cumple con lo que promete. 

 

 

That’s it guys, these where all the products I got from Milani. I’ll keep writing these kind of posts, because momma buy’s makeup as much as she buys groceries. Don’t forget to follow me on social media so we can stay connected. Leave your comments down below of any products or brands I should try.
