............. Honey by Marc Jacobs Perfume .............

I am fascinated with perfumes and I like to collect them. I love to test different fragrances and see how they interact with my body chemistry. I had this Honey perfume by Marc Jacobs on the list of the ones that I wanted to try but as a high end brand it was expensive (110.00 per 3.4 oz). It sure was a lovely surprise when my husband bought it for me as a Christmas present ( Thanks Honey ❤).

This perfume is described as a Sweet, Sassy, and Sunny. Honey by Marc Jacobs is a sunny, delicious floral - energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The perfect mix of brightness and warmth.


    Since I received it I have been wearing it almost every day. I keep it on my main vanity table in my bedroom since I love the whimsical bottle, it looks gorgeous, and it always makes me smile when I look at it. Clearly the bottle is not for everyone but I think the perfume itself is worth trying (and smells amazing on me). I think that Honey is a perfect scent for summer and it's a nice balance of fruit, floral, citrus, and sweetness with a very light hint of honey included. The scent is very overpowering and strong at first but once you rub it in, it becomes a subtle and light fragrance. The scent lasts about nine hours on me. The price for the perfume is quite expensive but I think that it's worth it. I would buy this again.

    • Top Notes: Pear, Juicy Mandarin
    • Heart Notes: Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Apricot, Honeysuckle
    • Base Notes: Honey, Golden Vanilla, Smooth Woods

    Have You ever tried this perfume? What is you favorite kind of scent? Thank you so much for reading!

    Reason Y Beauty Face Mask Winter Essential Bundle

    Hi lovely's and Happy New Year! After the Christmas recess I am back full of energy and with my first post of the year.  Taking care of your skin is a great way to start it. Spending a little quality time with yourself wearing a face mask is totally worth it. Don't you think? 


    The reason Y collection was developed to treat varying skincare problems that arise with every lifestyle, occasion and situation. Each face mask provides  a customized skincare solution. allowing you to feel confident doing the things you love to do.


    While I was on a vacation, I brought with me several of the Reason Y Face Masks  from their Winter Bundle. I thought what a great way to put them to the test since when I am traveling my skin can get very dehydrated + being in the winter season doesn't help that much. I have combination skin type, oily on my T-zone and dry on the cheek and mouth area. I see how including their face masks on my skin care routine at least 2 times per week for the last month has really paid off for that boost of hydration and it also soothes and relaxes my exhausted skin after every flight. I feel my skin is in much better shape now.


    This is a collagen boosting mask. It felt heavenly on my skin. The lightweight formula has the properties of the jojoba seed oil which doesn't clog pores. The antioxidant present in this oil also soothes fine lines, wrinkles, and naturally slows down other signs of aging because it stimulates the collagen production, calms irritation, and moisturizes your skin. After using it my skin feels refreshed, moisturized, and looks brighter. You can beat the winter blues with these hydrating face masks. Say goodbye to dry skin and hello to bright hydrating skin. After I take the mask off I dab the product left over into my skin and it gets absorbed very quickly.


    This mask contains grapefruit extract, a natural disinfectant, that helps promote cellular health. It can be the workout your face needs to leave your skin toned and revitalized. The sheet was fully soaked of the liquid and it felt super hydrating on my skin . I took the mask off after 20 minutes and I immediately noticed that my skin looked super rested and hydrated.


    The tea tree extract in it helps to remove bacteria, reduce swelling, and tame irritation that causes the breakouts. I wore it for about 15 minutes and it just made my face look so radiant, my pores looked smaller, and my skin looked tighter afterwards. My skin feels plumped out and soft.

    You can buy each mask for only $3.00 or the Winter bundle that includes 6 face masks for $18 with free shipping included. I think they are totally worth it since they are so affordable, perfect for frequent use, and the most important point is that they really work.


    The masks feel very comfortable on and they don't drip.

    After the skin is refreshed, plump, and glowing.

    For more information about these face masks, ingredients, and other collections click here: Reasong Y Face Masks


    Simply open your mask, grasp each tab, and with one pull you are ready to apply to your face and they are Paraben free.

    Have you tried any of these face mask sheets? Which ones are you more excited to try out?  Thank you so much for reading!  ^_^

    . Holiday Gift Guide With Laura Geller Beauty .

    Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? I can't, but I am so excited because this is my favorite season of the year. Do you have your gift list ready? I do! On this post I have my recommendation with my favorite kits from the Laura Geller Beauty Holiday Collection. How did they make it to the list? Because they have amazing quality, pigmented, and they are an incredible value for what you pay. I really cannot believe the prices on some of their kits. I recommend that you grab the ones you like before they are gone.

    I decided to do something different for this year's Christmas gift guide and starting today I will be showcasing a different brand each week with my favorite Holiday products from their collection. So make sure you come back to check them out! ;) 


    As you guys know Gilded Honey is my favorite highlighter ever, so when I saw this kit I was over the moon! lol This special edition collection included ALL 4 highlighters + double end brush. Yesss!  The texture is silky and fine. The powder melts into the skin leaving the most stunning sheeny glow and they can be sheered out and built up effortlessly. My favorite way to apply them is with a fan brush and I like to apply a little bit in the inner corner of my eyes as well for a much brighter and awake look. You can use them wet or dry.  $49.96

    Left to right are Fairy Dust, it is a soft pink pearl Shade, Gilded Honey is a golden caramel Shade, Ballerina is a Rose Gold Shade, and Peach Glow is a Peachy Champagne shade.


    This kit includes 5 full size eyeshadow palettes. This collection was inspired by the most famous and beautiful Hollywood actresses.  These are the most gorgeous eyeshadow palettes I have ever seen and the color combinations are just genius. As with all Laura Geller Baked products these are not the exception: fully pigmented, smooth, and easy to blend. You cannot go wrong with them. The package is to die for. You can see how much work and care they put towards them. They come in a very sturdy box and they actually stack inside it like books. You can give the whole collection or as individuals. It will be the perfect gift for any makeup lover in your life. If I have to pick just one this will be the winner. $109.98

    The Marilyn includes 10 shimmery Pink shades.
    The Grace includes 10 fun purple shades.
    The Audrey includes 10 natural tan and gold shades.
    The Bette includes 10 soft and intense blue shades.
    The Sophia includes 10 pearly nude shades.


    This body bronzer highlighter will make you look radiant and tanned within seconds. Think of it as a tropical vacation baked into an easy to use compact. The wand puff that is included makes applying and blending very simple and unlike lotion or gel self tanners there is no waiting for it to dry. It is the most beautiful golden caramel shimmering. It gives a wet look on the skin shade that I have never seen before. This shade is perfect for medium to deep skin tones. $25 per 0.71 oz 


    This a a dream palette for the blush lover. These pressed powder blushes are pigmented and have a creamy and silky texture. They blend out looking very natural, like a second layer of skin and leaves a satin finish. The package is so cute as well. 

    Pink Grapefruit is a cool berry with bronze under tones, Bora Bora is a pink coral, and Honey Suckle is a bronze coral with a hint of berry in it.


    This collection includes 5 full size of their most famous gel eye pencils. They go on smoothly and stay all day in place. They didn't smudge or transfer on me. The point is super fine and precise, perfect for an easy application. $27

    The shades included are:

    Blackbird, Brown Sugar, Purple Rain, Fade to Gray, and Emerald City

    This kit includes 2 top coat lip glosses. Finish your favorite lip color with these top coats. Infused with light reflecting pearls and lip conditioning kendi oil, it cushions lips with a rich, always silky, never sticky shine. Love how these glosses hide the texture of the glitter, they also glide on so easily. These lip toppers are so fun to play with because I get to transform my lip color by layering them with other lip products or by using them by themselves. They offer 2 different kits, The Diamonds and The Pearls, each one is $13.

    Left to right are Diamond Dust and Amethyst Glaze

    Which of these kits are you more excited to try? Thank you so much for reading! ^_^

    Loreal Infallible Pro Glow Concealer Review and Swatches

    Hi everyone! As always, wishing you are having an Amazing day! As you requested, here is the full review about the new Loreal Infallible Pro Glow Concealer. I hope this review is helpful for you. Please keep reading!


    Discover our pro-inspired makeup concealer that provides glowing coverage for up to 16 hours. Infallible pro glow concealer can sculpt and highlight features while you correct and conceal imperfections. The lightweight, ultra blendable longwear concealer allows you to customize your glow with luminous buildable coverage. 


    This is a very light coverage concealer. It has a liquid but not runny consistency. It feels nice and light under the eye area. I would not use it if you are trying to cover dark circles, imperfections, or puffiness under the eyes. It does go on smoothly and blends very easily without creasing (with one coat) which is good. I see this working for a day that I am going to the beach when I just want a minimal and very natural makeup but that would really be the only occasion I will use it. This is because I need a medium to full coverage concealer on a regular basis since I have very dark circles under my eyes. It has a very subtle glow to it. Regarding the 16 hour staying power I would say no because after only 4 hours I see how it started to fade and I had to reapply it. Also when I tried to build the coverage it creased on me. I had very high expectations for this concealer because I love the Pro Glow foundation that has a medium coverage, so I was expecting the same with this concealer but that didn't happen. This concealer will work great if you have a great complexion and very little imperfections or light dark circles to cover since it gives a very natural coverage and blends out looking like your own skin. I also like the 8 different ranges of shades they offer from light to more deep skin tones. The color you see in the clear plastic tube is very accurate to how the shade will look in real life. It comes with a flexible flat doe-foot applicator that makes the application easy and precise. I paid $9.99 per 0.21 oz for each one at my local CVS.


    Let me know your thoughts down below and thank you so much for reading! ^_^

    I bought these products with my own money.

    .. Product Empties! Would I repurchase them? ..

    Hello lovely's! I hope you are having an amazing day. I can't believe it is Summer already, can you? I don't know if it is only me, but it seems like this year is flying already. Today's post is all about my most recent empties, some are a hit and others a miss. Mini reviews of each product. Want to know more please keep reading :)



    This exfoliating toner with a 5% glycolic acid is one of my favorite skin care products. I have been using it for more than 6 months now and I really like how clean my skin feels after using it. I can see how my skin looks much brighter and my skin tone is much more even. I use it at night time after I wash my face and I wait a couple of minutes before applying my night cream. I will definitely keep buying it. I bought mine at Target for $15.00 per 3.4 fl.oz.


    This is a moisturizing cream for dry skin. My skin type is combination to dry. I use it as a daily moisturizer before I apply my sunscreen on. It does a great job revitalizing my skin and it gives a good amount of moisturization without feeling or looking greasy. I love the delicate rose smell it has. I am not a big fan of fragrances on my skin care products but I do love the one this has, it is such a treat. It absorbs very quickly into my skin without any residues. I will repurchase it. I bought mine from their site for $29.00 per 1.3 oz.


    This is a fragance free body lotion with shea butter and vitamin E. I bought it like 3 months ago when my skin was so dry due to the cold weather and I love it. It is 98.9% natural and hypoallergenic. The consistency is pretty thick and it feels more like a body butter, it gives lots of moisture to my dry skin. The hydrating sensation also lasts all day which is great. I only use it in the winter or when my skin is crazy dry because when my skin goes back to normal and I use it everyday it sometimes gives me break outs. I will repurchase. I bought mine at Target for $9.99 per 12 oz.


    I have this concealer in the shade 2 which is a light shade with pink undertones. I thought it would be great for under my eye area. It claims to be a full coverage matte waterproof concealer. I will say this is one of the worst concealers I have ever tried. It is not full coverage by any means and it does not even give a light coverage. I tried to use it in so many different ways and times to make it work but it just does not work. I will not repurchase. I bought mine on Ebay for $4.00 per 0.52 oz.


    There is not really too much to say about it. It is a great body mist and it smells wonderful. The fragrance is a combination of cherry blossom and peach. I like to spray it on me after I take a shower and the fragrance lasts for a decent amount of time. I will repurchase. I bought it from their site for $22.00 for a kit of 5, each one with 2 fl oz.


    I have it in the shade nude which is more like a rose/gold shimmery shade. It is a pretty loose pigment but it is super messy when you take the top part out of the container. Shimmer goes flying all over the place and you end up looking like a disco ball. It is pigmented. I had to apply it with a glitter glue and an eyeshadow brush. For the price tag of $16.64 for 0.03 oz I did not find it to be anything out of this world. You can find nowadays beautiful loose shadows at the drugstore for less than half of that price. I will not repurchase it.


    I have this lip liner in Chianti that is a deep maroon cherry shade. The color is rich and bold and it lasts for about 4 to 5 hours depending on what I am eating. It has a very creamy texture. It glides on easily and has a satin finish. I really enjoy using this lip liner and it does a good job preventing my lipstick from bleeding. My only complaint is that it is not a twist up. It has to be sharpened. I bought from their site for $18.00 per 0.04 oz . I will repurchase it.


    I have it in clear. This is my holy grail lash glue. It is very easy to use since it has a wand applicator with a thin brush tip that makes the application very precise. It dries clear and it gets tacky very quickly which speeds up in a good way the whole lash applying process. The most important part is that this glue holds the false lashes securely in place all day. This glue is perfect for beginners. I bought it at Walmart for $5.00 per 0.17 fl oz.


    This Lip balm has a coenzyme Q10 formula and broad spectrum SPF 15. This is by far my favorite lip balm/treatment. I tend to have dry chapped lips and since I have been using it for the past year I can see a big difference. My lips feel very soft and they look much healthier and plump. It goes on clear and it adds a pretty shine to my lips. The moisture sensation also lasts for a long time. I always keep one in my purse as well. It has a light minty scent and it tastes good like lemon sugar candy. I keep repurchasing it. I buy it at Walgreens for $3.49 per 0.13 oz.

    Have you finished anything this month that you recommend me trying? Thank you so much for reading!

    .......................... ittse Cosmetics ..........................

    Hello everyone! How is your day going? Today I am super excited to introduce you guys to the ittse cosmetics brand. I like their products so much that I decided to create this blog post with a full review a bout them. I hope you enjoy it!


    ittse is whole new approach to color cosmetics, created with the most important makeup artist in mind YOU. What is so different? It is a completely costumizable fun way to get the makeup you love, and then organize it in perfect palettes for at home or on the go. Even better, Ittse combines high quality formulas and velvety rich color payoff with affordable prices that mean you don't have to pick just one. With a range of eye shadows, complexion and brow powders and new lip cremes color in a variety of finishes, ittse makes sure the possibilities are endless.



    I have this magnetic palette in the color Anemone which is a beautiful coral shade, perfect for spring. Just looking at this color 
    I feel happy! I truly appreciate how each palette is hand made and finished with a luxe, easy to clean vegan leather fabric that comes in 6 different colors. It feels very expensive and luxurious. This palette has one magnetic compartment that holds up to 12 eyeshadows, a big mirror, and a dust shield. The palette is very compact, perfect for traveling or being on the go. I just wish they have bigger size palettes because I would totally buy them! 

     Since all the magnetized pans are packaged in a reusable, clear plastic clamshell, they make it easier to customize my palette based on my mood. I just pop out the shade I want to remove from my palette, store it in the plastic clamshell, and add in another shade of my preference. All Their products come in 3 different finishes of pearl, sparkle, and matte. They carry a high quality consistency through all of their products. The texture of the ones I have are just incredibly soft. They almost blend by their selfs and the pigmentation is out of this world. I am super impressed with the performance of the matte shades with almost no fall out or patchiness which is pretty rare for matte products. They offer over 100 different shades to choose from. Each pan has the shade name written on the back. The packaging is so cute, classy, and feminine. You can see how much they care about every detail.


    Aren't these shades beautiful? 



    The brow powder is a perfect shade for medium to more deeper complexions. The bronzer is more of a cool toned shade that will work best for light to medium complexions. The finish is more like a matte satin that gives my skin that sun kissed finish and the blush is a beautiful light warm pink that will give you more of a natural flushed look.  




    The lid Primer is infused with white sapphire for intensity color payoff  and the HD Flawless finish Translucent Setting Powder is infused with hyaluronic that has antiaging properties and antioxidants. I can see how my pores look smaller when I set my foundation with this powder and it also helps me control my natural oils. 




    These lip cremes are for me more like pressed lipstick for their vivid and high pigmentation. They come in two different finishes. High impact (these are the ones I have) which means very intense rich color pay off and low impact that is more of a sheer formula.


    I created this Spring Glam look using all the products I reviewed above and also so you can see the products and different shades in action. I first applied the eyelid primer and set it with a little bit of the HD translucent powder. In the outer corner for my eyes I used the eyeshadow in the shade Hyphy (matte) and all over my eyelid I used Palisades (sparkle). I used the same shades on my lower lash line for a dramatic effect. On my face I am using their bronzer, blush, and to set my foundation I used the HD Translucent powder. To define my eye brows I used the brow powder.


    All ittse products are:
    * Paraben and Gluten free.
    * Eco friendly packaging.
    * Not tested on animals.
    * Made in the USA

    * Eyeshadows, Eyelid primers, and Brow pans are $9 per 1.7 g
