New in my makeup stash.

I always want to go on a no-buy for a month or at least for a week, but men, It is so hard. Especially when you work next to Ulta and Sephora, not to mention Walgreens is just a few steps away. I’ve been wanting to try new things, especially from E.L.F. I also have been wanting to find some cheaper versions of products I have owned. So with that as an excuse I went and bought some new makeup, guilty pleasure.

BH Cosmetics Crystal Quartz 12 Piece Brush Set Review

Hey, Dolls. Today I want to share with you a very nice quality, affordable brush set that I recently bought. I was on the hunt for the perfect brush set that I would recommend to beginners, Pros and anyone on a budget. I bought the Bh Cosmetics Crystal Quartz 12 Piece Brush Set. I picked it up because It was the only affordable brush set that I noticed had face brushes and eye brushes. So basically, you can do your whole makeup with this set. I have a previous brush set from this brand and I really like it, so I thought this one might be good too.

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.

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.

Urban Decay’s Ultimate Basics Palette Review

Hi Dolls! Today I wanted to talk about the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette that has everyone all over the place, including me. This Palette has 12 shades including warm and cool tones, which is awesome and very convenient. They’re all matte. You have browns and purples perfect for fall.  Blue and a black perfect for a more dramatic tone and cooler shades on top perfect for an every day look. Now, I will jot down a list between what I like and what I don’t, so you’ll see.

What I Like

  • I Definitely love the browns and purples, they’re my all time favorite shades.
  • I love how you can create both dramatic looks and a more soft look all with one palette.
  • I Love that it’s perfect for fall, my favorite season of the year. 
  • The mirror has me feeling some kind o way, a “in love kind of way”. It’s perfect to do your makeup.
  • The packaging is life. It’s like a rose gold ball of highlight. I just love it
  • I also like that it’s small and easy to cary, perfect for traveling.

What I don’t Like

  • The Brush, I would like it to be more round and tapered, the blending part.
  • The colors are great, but not highly pigmented, you have to build it up.

And that’s it, I mean for the things a don’t like. Overall I love this palette, it’s so compact and has all the essential colors, who could not? I’ll leave some swatches below! 

Blow, Nude, Commando, Tempted, Instinct, Lethal

Blow, Nude, Commando, Tempted, Instinct, Lethal

Hola Muñequitas. Hoy les quiero hablar sobre la paleta de Urban Decay, Ultimate Basics. Debo decir que me encantan todos sus colores, en especial los violetas y marrones, son mis favoritos de todos los tiempos y perfectos para esta temporada. La paleta contiene 12 sombras matte, entre ellas colores cálidos y fríos. Perfecta para “looks” para el día o dramáticos para la noche. Abajo les haré un listado sobre las cosas que me gustan y las que no.

Lo que me gusta

  • Me encanta la variedad de tonalidades perfectas para lucir de dia como en la noche.
  • Es perfecta para el otoño, mi época favorita del año.
  • El espejo me tiene enamorada. Es perfecto para maquillarte.
  • El empaque ni se diga. Es como una bola de oro rosado resplandeciente, que imaginación verdad.
  • Es cómoda para llevar de viaje y sus colores esenciales, así que es la mejor opción para llevar. 
  • Amo que lleve los tonos marrones y violetas, son mis favoritos.

Lo que no me encanta

  • Hubiese preferido que la brocha para difuminar fuese mas redonda y puntiaguda para una mejor precisión y poder mover el color mejor. 
  • La selección de colores esta estupenda pero no todos tienen buena pigmentación así que tendrías que ir añadiendo producto para un mejor resultado. 

En general la paleta me fascina, tiene mis colores favoritos y como ya dije es perfecta para varios “looks” sin tener que estar cambiando de paleta. Es perfecta para viajar y su empaque es verdaderamente hermoso. Muéstrenme sus “looks” preferidos con esta paleta. 

-Les quiere, La Princesssaa
