Japonesque Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette




The colors pigmentation in this palette are totally incredible, they are buttery smooth, no fall out what so ever and you don't need any primer with this palette because they are extremely pigmented. This palette is divided in two sides, the left side has the "Pro Basics" that are the neutral shades that complement perfectly the other side of this palette called "Pixelated Color". Those are the bold and smokey shades. These colors are totally multifaceted and if you change the base that you are using before applying these shadows, they will look completely different. The limitation of this palette is your imagination. You can also combine them and create your own multichrome shade. You can use these colors in so many different ways. I'm just obsessed with it! I was thinking on including it in a review with other products but it is just so beautiful that it deserves it's own review. This palette has a totally unique versatility that I haven't seen in any other smokey eyeshadow palette yet.

................. My Skin Care Ruotine .............


Hi! I hope you guys had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by friends and family as I had. It has been a long time since I updated my skin care routine, so in today's post I am including the products I have been testing for two months now and I have being seeing great results. I like to change my skin care routine every 3 to 6 months because I don't want my skin to get acostumed to just certain products/ingredients. When I am looking for new skin care products I like to use a couple from the same brand because I find out that I get better results like that since different brands use different ingredients and they may not go well together. 


MY SKIN CONCERNS 

First of all I have combination skin type, oily T zone and dry cheeks.  I'm also in my late twenties and I already have some fine lines on my forehead, around my mouth, and eye area. I am more concerned about my under eye area because I also have very bad dark circles and under eye bags. I guess it is age but also being a mom, waking up very early, and always running here and there. I decided to try some products from Nuxe Paris because they use high quality ingredients. 
All their products are Paraben and comedogenic free, made in France.


NUXELLENCE JEUNESSE 


This is my step 1! This is a fully concentrated face serum that includes natural ingredients like passion flower, Hyaluronic Acid, Anchusa, Poppy, and Cocoa cell that has helped me diminish dark spots and even my skin tone. I have noticed that my skin looks more luminous and with that extra healthy boost. The texture of this serum is light, hydrating, but not greasy and smells like fresh fruit. I apply it after washing my face and let it absorb into my skin for about 3 minutes.



FIRST WRINKLE CREAM NIRVANESQUE  


Step 2! This cream is for a normal skin type. I like using it at night after the Nuxellence serum is totally absorbed into my skin. Some of the ingredients in it are Peony and Blue Lotus Seed that delivers antioxidants to my skin and gives it that healthy glow. I have noticed that my skin looks much firmer and the fine lines of my forehead appear to look soft. It has a super light texture and disappears into my skin in just seconds. I really like that it doesn't have that thick consistency like the majority of wrinkle creams. Smells like baby lotion to me.



CREME PRODIGIEUSE ANTIFATIGUE EYE CREAM


Step 3! This is by far my favorite product because I can see the improvement of my under eye area right after the first week of use. The puffiness and the bad under eye bags/circles are totally under control and my skin feels and looks smoother, you can use it morning and night time. It almost has like a watery texture and it has a tingle and fresh sensation just after applying it. Some of the ingredients in it are vitamin E, cacao extract, and caffeine.

What are your skin care concerns? Thank you so much for reading.

I recommend these products because they personally work for me and my skin type and needs. But remember every one is different, if you are in a dermatological treatment consult your doctor first.

.............. Profusion Cosmetics Gift Guide ..........



 HI LOVELYS! 


Today's post is for all the makeup lovers out there or for that makeup lover in your family. Since Christmas is around the corner I decided to make this post just on time for you to prepare your Makeup wish list. Profusion Cosmetics is a CRUELTRY FREE makeup line that has excellent quality products that are affordable for everyone. They were kind enough to sent me lots of their new products to try out and choose the ones that work for me and that I truly like. The list below are the ones I chose and I recommend for you to try out.

I selected the products below because all are very pigmented, smooth, and easy to work with.

PRO ELEVATION KIT


This huge kit includes anything you need to do almost a full face makeover. This kit includes 40 eyehadows (20 neutral shades and 20 colorful ones), 17 lip glosses/lipsticks, 2 contour shades, 3 higlighters, 2 blushes, 4 gel eye liners and 4 brow products.



FELINE LIQUID LIPSTICK KIT


This kit includes 6 very vibrant liquid lipsticks, the shades are totally beautiful, and includes every shade a girl needs and for only $1.99 each you can't beat them.  :)

Swatches Left to right



RUNWAY GLAMOUR PALETTES


These are individual eyeshadow palettes, each one includes 6 different shades. Not only are they beautifully pigmented but they are also very compact and travel friendly. I love that each one includes a small mirror and photos of eye looks you can create. They will be the perfect gift to include in the stockings and the package is just so cute! Each eyeshadow palette is only $2.99. Can you believe it?



THE NEW TRENDSETTER FACE PALETTE


This palette covers all your needs for eyes, brows, and lips. It includes 24 eyeshadows from mattes to shimmery shades, 3 blushes, 2 bronzers, 1 higlighter, 3 brow products, 3 lip glosses, 4 small face brushes, and 1 black eye pencil. I don't care much about this eye pencil because it is not very creamy, But I love everything else in this palette. The package feels and looks very luxurious, nobody would believe it only costs $12.49.

I like how each palette includes a hard plastic cover with the names of the product plus it will also protect your makeup.



STUDIO CONTOUR PALETTE


This is one of my favorite palettes. Like the name says it has all the powder contour shades you need to really get that cool natural shade that will look like that natural shadow on your face, not orange bronze. Love, love all the cool tones in it and all of the 6 shades are very pigmented, easy to blend, and the powders are fine milled.



PROFUSION PERFECT PALETTES: NUDE, SMOKEY, AND GLAM


These are 3 different eyeshadow palettes that sell individually: Nude, Smokey, and Glam. I love playing with all of them, it is a matter of personal preference of which one would you like. Each one has very different and unique shades. I love that the package is very elegant and is screaming Christmas!!!



ABSOLUTE FACE PALETTE V2


This face palette includes 2 face powders, 2 blushes, 1 contour powder, 1 highlighter (my favorite, such a beautiful champagne shade), 2 brow powders, 2 concealers, 2 correctors, 4 lips glosses, and 4 small brushes. All the pans in this palette have a great size.

............... My Favorite Perfumes .............



Hello again friends, as always I hope you are having an excellent day! I am always on the look for new perfumes that I may like because not only do I really like makeup, I also love trying new fragrances.


NUXE PRODIGIEUX LE PARFUM SPRAY


Since I was running low on my favorite one, I decided to try this one from Nuxe. This perfume is stimulating to all of the senses. The composition of it is very original and I have not smelled anything like this before. It has an exquisite and sophisticated fragance, the scent to me is like a fresh bouquet of flowers (Orange Blossom, Gardenias) with notes of coconut and vanilla, but not over powering. The most amazing thing about this perfume is that it smells better when it drys down to a soft scent. The fragrance lasts me almost all day and the smell becomes stronger if I get hot. This is a big plus for me because regularly the scent of some of my perfumes disappears when I start sweating. I find it suitable for all ages. I believe you can only buy it from their site: Nuxe




RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE ALWAYS YOURS


 This one has a feminine/floral and more mature scent. I decided to buy this one since I ran out of the original version of this one. I still like the original one better because it has a more delicate flower scent to it. In this Always Yours version the floral scent is much stronger, but I still enjoy it. The fragrance also lasts for a very long time which is something I always look for when I am going to buy a fragrance. This perfume has lily, freesia, and white violet notes. I bought mine at my local Macy's but you can also find it on different sites.


All of the fragrances smell different on different people, everything depends on your body chemistry

Thank you so much for reading! ^_^

L.A. Girl USA Cosmetics Velvet Contour Sticks


Hello everyone!


Some of you guys were asking me about how and what cream products I use to contour my face. I have really been enjoying the L.A. Girl USA Cosmetics Contour Stick. When it is time to contour I like to use both cream and power products, everything depends on what mood I am in. I really like working with these cream sticks because they glide very easily on my skin, they almost feel like butter on the skin. They have a very creamy light texture which makes them very easy to apply and blend. I like to apply them with my beauty blender but you can use a brush as well. These come in a twist up package and each one contains 0.2 oz of product. They have a different selection of 10 blushes, 3 bronzers, and 3 highlighters.


After I am done with my foundation, I apply all 3 products at once (Bronze, Blush, and Highlighter) and blend them all together at once. I personally prefer this way because I think the final result looks much more natural but you can use them individually as well.
