Pür Cosmetics. The HydraFluid Water Foundation was an incredible spring/summer foundation discovery and the Cameo Contour Stick is a very practical product with an amazing beauty blending sponge. Pür's latest makeup launch is the Fully Charged Mascara which is an anti-aging mascara that promises all day lift, volume, and curl. The mascara also has some other very interesting claims and ingredients which are not all that common in the mascara world.
Mom Jeans SNL Skit a few years go, I couldn't help but to poke fun at the mom jeans trend. I honestly thought the mom jeans trend was going to die rather quickly, but it's back again since 90's nostalgia has hit an all time high with my generation. And I'm not going to lie, I do miss the days when fashion was incredibly comfortable while being a little bit on the weird side. During a recent trip to the Salvation Army I made it a mission to try on one of the infamous 90's jeans, just to see if I could perhaps pull it off. Well... I still don't think they're particularly flattering, but they're so damn comfortable that I couldn't care less about everything else. Comfort + 90's Nostalgia = Match made in heaven.
hair routine video that I filmed last year, people still kept asking for another hair routine video. In this post I'll be showing you my updated hair routine using my favorite hair products for curly hair. This routine will work on any type of naturally curly hair, as well as wavy hair.
Pacifica, is going really outdoing themselves by offering a great array of nail colors that are safe for every woman to use.
Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color come in 12 different shades ranging from sweet pink shades, to daring purples. These liquid lipsticks are not only incredibly affordable but they can really hold up well along their much pricier counterparts.
MAC Cosmetics store in Westfield Plaza Bonita. The teacher for this class was none other than the talented Gisel Calvillo, a MAC Senior Artist since 2003 who happens to be a very strong and passionate Mexican woman. Although the class was technically a bridal makeup course, the tips that were shared can work for every woman and any occasion. If you're a fan of using makeup to enhance your natural beauty, then you would have loved Gisel's tips. She's definitely a "less is more" type of girl who likes to create looks that will make a woman feel beautiful.
Carlsbad Premium Outlets were the only outlets in San Diego county. My family would drive from Tijuana all the way up to Carlsbad in order to score some great deals at the factory stores, the trip would often take 3+ hours since the line at the border were ridiculously long in the 90's. Back then you had a decent selection of store such as GAP Factory and Banana Republic, but the Carlsbad Premium Outlets have really stepped up their game since then. If you're a beauty fan like myself, then this is the place to come splurge and save some money. I'm talking big luxury brands like Tom Ford, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Bobbi Brown, and YSL for 10-30% off! That's way more than waiting around for a Sephora VIB sale and these deals can be found everyday.
Who What Wear midi skirt which is still available at Target. I'm typically not a skirt type of girl, but I instantly fell in love with this midi skirt when I laid eyes on it. It took a cute and comfortable midi skirt to break my lifelong obsession with jeans.
3B (Beauty Beyond Borders) is a monthly subscription service for Asian beauty fans and those who want to try out Asian beauty products but don't know where to start.
Flower Fields that are only open for a few months out of the year. You might remember The Flower Fields from a post I did last year, but this time around I got to see more of the fields and learn about the variety of events held here. Whether you have a family or not, this is a fantastic place to visit and release your inner flower child.
a few years now, you will know that I adore Bite Beauty lipsticks. Over the course of two years I've purchased and tried out many Bite Beauty lipsticks but my favorite formula was by far the Luminous Crème formula which sadly got discontinued. Not going to lie, I was completely bummed out when I first heard the news but Bite Beauty promised to release an even better lipstick formula. It was really hard to imagine a better formula than the Luminous Crème but somehow Bite Beauty outdid themselves with the new Amuse Bouche formula. In today's review I will be talking about the new formula, as well as comparing it to some of the other beloved lipstick formulas under Bite Beauty's umbrella.
Birchbox is here! This time around I didn't even get to choose any of the samples or the curated box because everything sold out super quickly. Not going to lie, I was a little bummed out that I wasn't able to pick one of the 4 luxe hair samples but maybe that worked in my advantage. This month's box has to be the best Birchbox I've received to date! Not only is the box itself absolutely adorable, but I was super content with the six samples I received. Yes, I got six instead of the usual five.
We All Grow Summit held in Long Beach, California. The conference was put together by the lovely and passionate women behind Latina Bloggers Connect, a network for Latina content creators. I've been a proud member of the Latina Bloggers Connect community since I started my beauty blog in 2013, in fact they were the first network that believed in my work and allowed me to publish my very first sponsored post with Neutrogena. I still remember how excited I was when I received the email that I got accepted into the Neutrogena campaign and I left the We All Grow Summit with the same excitement that I experienced 3 years ago. Last weekend was filled with so much knowledge and motivation to keep fighting to make my dreams become reality.
aid back outfit, but today I wanted to pair it with a dress to show you how versatile they really are. I probably looked like a six year-old got dressed by her mom, but at least I looked like a stylist six year-old.
Pacifica Dream Big Mascara has a very interesting 2-in-1 brush that promises to lengthen, lift, volumize, and condition lashes. The mascara is also natural, vegan, and cruelty-free. And to make things interesting, this mascara also claims to help your natural lashes grow and become more voluminous. Sounds too good to be true, right?
