I am constantly looking for ways to hide or minimize my large pores on my cheeks, nose and my chin from past scarring and acne. Over the years I’ve found ways to hide my pores under my makeup with the use of right techniques and makeup tools. It would be really nice to shrink my large pores to normal size with the use of creams or masks but there usually is a scam behind these sorts of products. When I first saw an ad in the magazine about L’OREAL Pore Vanisher cream I was a bit skeptical. I didn’t feel like spending $25.00 on such a product. The only reason why I bought this product was because it was on sale.The reviews found on ULTA website also didn’t agree with me. I should have listened to people that didn’t like this product. Well now you can hear it from me as well in details…
Hello ladies. I am sorry about being gone for almost a week. I am certainly back from all this craziness that’s been happening in my life right now. I wanted to start my week off with a review of the two popular concealers that are on the market right now. I am all about concealers and I use them daily as my normal makeup routine. I’ve gone through 20 or maybe 30 concealers ever since I’ve started using makeup (which has been years ago). I can say and you all can probably relate to this that some concealers were not worth buying at all. Some were too heavy, some did not match my skin tone, some were setting in fine lines after just a few hours of wearing makeup and some were clogging my pores so I would end up with breakouts, which is a big NO-NO. So recently I’ve purchased two concealers and I’ve been using them for about two months now. I wanted to share my experiences and my honest opinions about those two products and draw the fine line between the two.
A few weeks ago I was going through Sephora when I bumped into a $30.00 sale of Sephora Favorites Summer Stash. At the time I needed to bump up my order to $50.00 to get a free shipping so I decided to go ahead and purchase this Summer Stash Kit that included 10 makeup samples from different brands. The kit was on sale and its original price was $45.00. Pretty sweet deal.
This kit comes with a very adorable makeup bag that reminds me of summer and sunshine. Actually, before I get into detail of what kind of products you can find in this kit, check out this link. As you can see on the picture products come from a variety of brands (all of them which I absolutely love).

Just another late night post from a crazy driven makeup obsessed…me. Tonight I wanted to talk about another monthly makeup subscription for just $10.00 that is offered through Ipsy.

Okay ladies. How many of you would want beauty samples delivered to your door every month for free? I’m sure most of you would want that and I’m sure there are websites out there that probably offer that kind of deal for free…There’s always a catch with these types of deals…you have to fill out hundreds of surveys, or you have to buy something, or pay for shipping…the list goes on and on. If you don’t want any headaches or waste your time on these pointless time consuming surveys then here’s a solution for you for only $10.00! Have you heard of Birchbox before?

The waiting is finally over! My inner makeup goddess is dancing in the background while I am raving over my new Tarteist Clay Paint Liner that I got from Sephora for $24.00. This little beauty came in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t wait to try it on today. I must say I am absolutely in love with it and I immediately wanted to share my excitement in my blog (
and also make up for the fact that I was gone for 4 days).
Truthfully today was my first time using Creep and Gunmetal colors out of the 12 colors that come with Naked Palette presented by Urban Decay. This palette was given to me as a Christmas present from my boyfriend (because I was begging him to buy it for me) and this has been my favorite eye shadow palette since I’ve started using it <3. This is not a cheap makeup product, its cost is $54.00 but it’s worth buying it.
I was pretty surprised this morning when I found out that I’ve been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by Harriet, who is an author of her amazing blog harrietsbeautybox. Make sure to follow her ladies if you want to learn new tricks, tips, advices and read reviews of everything beauty related <3.
Now as far as I know this award was created to recognize us bloggers across the world. This is my first award of any kind as I am still pretty new to the blogging world. I am still pretty excited that I was recognized and I want to thank Harriet for nominating me. The rules to this award are simple: just post 7 facts about yourself and then nominate 7 other bloggers to do the same. Continue reading
The featured image just looks so glamorous, juicy and…used. This is the first eye shadow palette I’ve purchased from Physicians Formula and it’s one of the four collections that this brand offers. This particular palette is featuring Natural Nude colors for less than $12.00. There are three other Nudes: Warm, Classic and Smoky.To say that I have a love and hate relationship with this shadow palette is an understatement…
I am obsessed with hair growth products and all kinds of treatments to make my hair longer. I am blessed and cursed with unruly, curly hair that is unmanageable if not treated. As we all know, curly hair gets split ends much faster than any other type of hair. It also gets easily damaged because of styling and heat damage with dryers and flat irons. On top of all that I color my hair every 2 months. As my hair stylist puts it I have to “baby my hair”. Two years ago I had to cut off over 4 inches of my hair and now I am struggling with growing it back. I never really had long hair, but it never grew past the shoulders. With constant trimming of my ends, it stayed pretty much in the same area over the last two years. So in this review I wanted to share my results and findings on what really works for my hair and how to make your hair grow if you’re in the same position as I am.
13pc Crown Brush Set, otherwise called Set 571 – The Vintage Professional Brush Set is something that I bought from ipsy website for a deal of $20.00. The deal ended sometime in the middle of month of January but can be also found under the link that I’ve provided for $29.25. The website claims the retail price to be $74.99 and that now you can get these brushes for 60% off.
This set comes with a very pretty color vintage looking case (bluish-green color on the outside and white polka-dot on pink background on the inside) and includes brushes such as: angle liner brush, brow/lash groomer, chisel shadow brush, concealer brush, mascara spoolie, crease brush, deluxe fan brush, smudger, deluxe shadow brush, foundation brush, blush brush and powder brush.

As the name of this post suggests, today I will be reviewing the two most essential products of my whole makeup collection. Personally, I think filling in eyebrows should be every woman’s daily makeup routine. I can say for sure that once I do my eyebrows my whole look changes. It is especially true and needed for people who have very light-colored eyebrows, like mine. Working with a shade slightly darker than your hair will make your eyes pop and when you ladies take a picture, the eyebrows will show up.
People wouldn’t have to take a double look anymore to make sure that you’re either missing your eyebrows or that they’re just too light for them to see. Continue reading
