It’s no surprise here that I love NYX products, especially their lippies. The affordable brand has some of the best lippies which always make it to my “top favorite” list. Recently, NYX launched the Powder Puff Lippie Power Lip Cream that, according to many makeup enthusiasts, feels as soft as cloud on your lips.
Drugstore foundations can’t give you flawless skin like the expensive foundations do – this is one makeup myth that I always hear and see, either from my friends or on the internet. However, when it comes to foundation, whether you choose to use the high-end foundation or the one that you get at your local drugstore, there are other factors that affect the final look of your skin, rather than the dollar amount. In this post, I want to share with you some tips that I’ve gained over the years on how to make foundation look flawless, even with inexpensive drugstore products.
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Vault II is a set from the NYX 2017 Holiday Collection. This lipstick set includes 30 sample-size NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks in various hues. I’m already a huuugggeee fan of NYX lipsticks so I was very excited to get my hands on this baby during the holiday season.
Can’t you believe 2017 is almost over? It has been a fabulous year to me: I went on a vacation in Hawaii, graduated from college and started a new job. Now, I’m ready to make more wonderful things in 2018. Part of starting 2018 on a strong note is setting up my 2018 bullet journal early.
“Summer’s over” is definitely a sad news. But the good news is: it’s time to take out those fall lip colors that we’ve been pushing aside in our lipstick drawer.

They simply reminds me of the chilly fall weather and go very well with fall sweater and leather clothes. In this post, I’ll show you my 5 top favorite fall lip colors that I’ll be rocking this fall.
Finally, Fall is here! I’ve been waiting for this sweater weather for the entire year. Putting my bright and colorful clothes away, I can’t wait to lounge around in my comfy and cuddly sweaters. When Fall comes, not only does my closet change but also my makeup. Forget about those hot pink and orange color eyeshadows and lipsticks, I gravitate towards warm brown earthy tones or different berry shades when doing my makeup. Today, I’m bring you a quick and easy Fall makeup look that I’ve been loving lately. I named it “Early Autumn Makeup” because, although I used three different shades of berry purple, there is still a pop of bling bling glitter that reminds me of the fun summer that just passed.
Should we start?
September is ending very soon. It’s just crazy how fast time flies, right? I can’t believe it’s already October and we’re only 3 months away from 2018. September has been pretty busy for me, in a good way, even though I haven’t had the time to keep up with my regular posting schedule. One of the many things that keep me busy this month is my two little guinea pigs. They are handful but, also, a huge bundle of joys. You can follow me on Instagram where I post about them daily. Anyway, October is right around the corner which means it’s time a another Bullet Journal Setup post. If you want to see how I set up my bullet journal for September, check out this link HERE.
BH Cosmetics is probably one of my favorite brands when it comes to high quality, yet affordable makeup products. In fact, I own many of their eyeshadow palettes and they’ve rarely disappointed me. Recently, I purchased the Take Me Back To Brazil palette because of its bright and festive color scheme. I believe this palette is the redesigned version of BH Cosmetics’s popular Take Me To Brazil eyeshadow palette. Although I haven’t done any makeup look with this cutie pie, I’m so in love with how pigmented the eyeshadows are, just from swatching them.
Let’s check out the swatches!
August is ending in just a few days, which means it’s time for another Bullet Journal Setup post. If you want to see how my August bullet journal looks like, check it out right HERE. For the month of September, I decided to go with the gems theme and used purple as my main color. As always, I had so much fun setting up my bullet journal and I couldn’t wait to share with y’all.
