May Favorites!

Where did the month of May go? I’m sure you’ve asked the same exact question right? Anyway, the good thing is that summer is here and May Favorites is now happening so stay tuned!

I have been very minimal last month, in other words (LAZY) haha. This might not be a very interesting post but hey! this products got me through the entire month with a smile. 🙂

Now, let’s get started.

  • 2015-08-6--18-52-10Simple Cleansing Micellar Water – At first I didn’t like it but the longer I used it, I started loving it. It cleanse really well and the best part is, it doesn’t break me out.
  • Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer – Surprise Surprise!!! What else can I say about this moisturizer?? hhmmppp.. THE BEST! ❤
  • Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation (oil free perfecting creme repairs skin with vitamin C complex, licorice root and pea extract. – I found this product in the “isle of doom” at Sephora as I was looking for a product that will help eliminate or reduce this pimple scar on my face. I’m not 100% sure if it did help but I noticed a difference on the spots so I thought to just continue using them. I just got the sample size because I was worried that it might irritate my skin, gladly this creme is very gentle and I like it. 🙂
  • Glam Glow Youthmud (Tinglexfoliate Treatment) – My Savior, a Must Have, Holy Grail. This product played a huge part on my face. Because of this, I stopped getting “sparkles”, the moment I can feel that a pimple is popping-up I dab a small amount on the spot and leave it overnight. The next morning, the monster is gone! I am so glad I found this Glam Glow Youthmud. I got the sample size again just to try it out and it lasted me for months since I don’t use this on my entire face. THIS PRODUCT IS A MIRACLE!


  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – you guys know what this is.. 🙂
  • MAC “BlushBaby” Sheertone Blush – This is a re-discovered product and I have been loving it ever since we met again.
  •  Maybelline “Fit Me” Pressed Powder – I’m killing this pressed powder to death. I love how it kept me shine-free all throughout the day and very very lightweight too which is good.
  • Maybelline “Fit Me” Concealer – This concealer is great in covering some unwanted scars/spots on my face. I love how it feels on my skin and most importantly, it doesn’t break me out.
  • 2015-08-6--19-01-44NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Milan – This shade is good for everyday wear, it’s matte, non-drying, smells really good (yummy) and can be worn during the day or even at night.
  • Covergirl Clump Crusher by lashblast Mascara – Another item that I’ve been reaching a lot for this past month. It’s really a clump crusher, though it’s not volumizing but they do keep the curl. It’s another product that is good for everyday wear but I don’t recommend this for night time or if you are going for a glam look.
  • Carmex Original Lip Balm – Please note that as long as you follow my posts, you will forever see this lip balm. You all know that this is another item that I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT.

Let me squeeze a non-beauty item in this post. This two items below have been my go-to footwear since Spring arrived. They are just so comfortable, easy to wear and can be paired with anything. I’ve had this items for over a year now and they still look great. The sandals are from NY&Co. while the “loafers” are from Nine West. They both have a hint of gold on them as I love gold so much. You will see me wearing these babies a lot for sure.

2015-08-6--19-02-54The End! ❤


ParT One.. #1

Couple of weeks ago, I went beauty shopping “again ” 😛 but I’ve decided to divide my posts into three. This will include a quick product review as well.

Face tools that I recently purchased and immediately fell in love with. I am going to try to make this post short and hopefully fun at the same time. So! let’s get started.

With My FAVEuary! post, I mentioned  that I love the Essential Tools brushes more than the Real Techniques brushes. They are just so soft and they doesn’t even have fall-outs.. if that’s even a proper word “fall-outs”.. If you haven’t tried them please do so. These brushes are so cheap and if you’re wondering where to find them, I purchased mine at Walmart. You guys might wonder why I mentioned Walmart a ton it’s because Walmart is closer to where I live and they are just very affordable too which is the most important of all. 🙂

I purchased two more brushes and they are the Deluxe Powder brush and the Smooth Coverage makeup brush.

1The Essential Tools Step 1 Complexion Deluxe Powder Makeup Brush is one of the essential tools for a perfect complexion. Use with powder for overall coverage. The silky-smooth bristles distribute makeup flawlessly. The easy-grip handle helps you to hold the brush comfortably for a precise application. First, cover imperfections (a concealer brush works great). Then, swirl the deluxe powder into loose or compact powder. Sweep and blend in a circular motion all over the face and decollete to create an even, smooth finish. Next, you’re ready to define your eyes with an eye shading brush.


The Essential Tools Step 1 Complexion Smooth Coverage Makeup Brush is one of the essential tools for a perfect complexion. Use with liquid or cream foundation and BB creams for buildable coverage. The easy-grip handle helps you to hold the brush comfortably for a precise application. First, cover any imperfections using a concealer brush. Next, create a smooth complexion with a smooth coverage brush by blending desired liquid or cream over the entire face. Next, use a powder brush with loose or compact powder to set your makeup for flawless coverage.

Another product that I purchased and became obsessed with right away is the EcoTools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge.

This sponge COMPLETELY changed my facial cleaning routine and they are very-very gentle on the skin too.♥

The EcoTools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge is handmade with 100% natural ingredients, including konjac vegetable fiber exfoliating bamboo charcoal. What is a konjac? A highly renewable perennial root plant mostly comprised of starch (similar to a potato). It grows in warm climates including Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. Aside from being used in sponge products, it is also used as a vegan alternative in foods. Get a better clean by removing impurities and revealing smooth, refreshed skin–just add your favorite facial cleanser and water. Wash away dirt, oil and makeup, and leave skin glowing without over-drying or causing redness. Sponge is gentle enough to be used morning and night. For best results, use sponge daily. After each use, simply rinse sponge with water and lay flat to air dry. Taking care of your sponge will help it last longer. Replace every one to three months.
