Drugstore Must haves




It's no secret that i love drugstore cosmetics i featured them on most of my videos, i figured why pay more when the drugstore cosmetics are just as great. So here is a break down of some of my favorites Enjoy!
Also this a collaboration post with Graciela Ruiz, over on her blog you can see what are some of her Sephora favorites make sure to check it out.

1. Loreal lumi Foundation  has got to be one of my all time favorite drugstore Foundations, i would say the coverage for this foundation is medium to full. It provides a healthy dewy finish which is perfect for my normal to dry complexion. It  has a retail value of $12.99 and it's available in 15 shades

2. Salon Perfect Perfect brow Pomade
I have been receiving many compliments on my brows lately and it's all thanks to this wonderful product. I was in the haunt for a new brow product and decided to pick it up at walmart
This pomade is very pigmented the formula is creamy and i believe it comes in 3 shades it has a retail value of $4.88
So if you are looking for a new brow product i would highly recommend you to try this one, the color that i picked up is in Dark brown.

3.Wet&Wild color icon eyeshadows
I have mentioned these eyeshadows many many times they are my absolute favorite drugstore eyeshadows, they are super pigmented and can have a bit of fall out just like any other eyeshadow. But the best part is they are extremely cheap. they come in a  variety of colors another awesome thing about the eyeshadows is they have diagram on the back of the packaging to show the consumer ways to apply the eyeshadows which is helpful for makeup beginners so i will definitely recommend you to try them

4.Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This concealer has got to be one of my favorite it has also been said to be a dupe for the Nars Radiant creamy concealer which i have used and absolutely love.
I can say the Maybelline one has very similar packaging and the formula of the maybelline is a bit more thicker in my opinion
it also comes in 6 shades and it retails for $6.99 i use it to brighten my under eyes when doing the highlight and contour technique.

5.Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids
If you like a bright lipcolor or looking to trying some i would totally recommend you to check these out. The formula of these lipsticks are super moisturizing and the color pay off is amazing, they smell great too. I believe they offer the collection in 7 gorgeous shades and each lipstick is priced at $7.99

6. Revlon Photo Ready Setting Powder
Last but not least this is  my favorite setting powder, i  can't count how many times i took a picture and ended up with a flash back effect
This powder is photo ready which means it will look amazing in photography it won't give you that flash back effect that we don't like and it will set your makeup to ensure it stays on all day. If you are a beauty blogger like i am and spend a lot of time in front of a camera or take many pictures with flash i will totally recommend you to try this setting powder out. This powder is priced at $10.66 and is available in 4 shades.

Loreal Voluminous Influenster Voxbox Unboxing, Demo and Review


Have you heard the news? L'oreal has a new mascara primer design to improve your mascara application? This means we can add as many layers as we want without our lashes getting clumpy. This is why i decided to put it to test in today's video.



All the items inside 


Before and after pictures using the brow stylist prep & shape pro kit 


Final look
Product Details (price may vary based on location)
brow stylist prep & shape pro kit
 walmart $12.32
l'oreal infallible never fail eyeliner $7-$9
l'oreal Colour Riche eyeshadow 200 paris beach $5.99
l'oreal Colour Riche eyeshadow pain au Chocolat $5.99
l'oreal voluminous primer $8.49
l'oreal voluminous original mascara $8.49

Final thoughts
  I started using the prep and shape kit i mention it was my mistake for not reading the packaging. I figured the wax would be a pigmented wax that i could just use alone if i wanted to, but it isn't the product it's actually a wax that you use to map out your brow which then you will set it with the powder that the kit came with. I also mention that the kit was convenient for travel since it includes a brush and a spoolie  as well as some tweezers

l'oreal infallible never fail eyeliner
Retractable eyeliner which means no need to sharpen which i always prefer, The product was creamy and very pigmented and  i also loved that i has a smudger at the other end, which makes it perfect to smudge the waterline and create a more smokey eye look.

l'oreal Colour Riche eyeshadows
have soft texture, buildable color pigmentation and are easy to blend.

l'oreal voluminous primer
product is white and i defiently noticed the mascara application to be easier as my lashes did not feel hard or had any clumping
l'oreal voluminous original mascara
I did noticed my lashes with more volume and appear more darker making my lashes feel very full and not spidery or clumpy

Would i Purchase them in the future?
Absolutely
 I did receive these items complementary thanks to influenster for testing purposes however all opinions are my own.

$6 liquid lipsticks!!


Hey loves so a couple of weeks ago i went to Ross and came across these liquid lipstick while browsing through the aisles.  I also found some other goodies that i will be sharing in  upcoming posts. As you all know liquid lipsticks are a huge trend right now and are in high demand. Even online stores, celebrities are even coming out with their own. These liquid lipsticks have a retail value of $10.00 however Ross always have discounted prices so i picked it up for only $6.99, which to me was an offer that i couldn't  pass up.
Below this post you will find my video featuring the entire kit.







Retail value: $10 but were discounted to $6.99 at Ross dress for less
Pros: Pigmented, Moisturizing and great color selection
Cons: Apply at least 2 coats to get a bolder color. Don't get so much product inside

would i recommend it?
In my opinion they are pigmented for the price and perfect if you want to experiment with bold colors. They are also moisturizing and last just like any other lipstick its defiantly not long wearing by all means. I say try them if you are looking to step out of your comfort zone

Over the last couple of weeks ago i received some goodies from Not your mothers and Loreal, immediately i begin using them and boy was i mind blown. These products have been my latest obsession, they definitely have changed my overall hair condition, my hair has became softer more manageable and most important frizz free.
I have been raving all over social media about these 2 lines. Shhh i even sometimes skip doing my hair and just rock out my natural hair. Ever since i begin using these products i no longer suffer from frizzy hair and thanks to the Not your mother's in a heart beat blow dry accelerator i have been able to cut back time on blow drying my hair.

Houston Latina Bloggers at CHI

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Farouk Systems and Lopez Marketing.

Meeting people that have a very inspirational success story is what motivates me to keep aiming toward my goals. Friday, February 19, 2016, the Houston Latina bloggers had an amazing opportunity to partner up with Farouk systems and their campaign with Biosilk and  Chi.

We got to take a tour of the headquarters here in Houston, learn about their company and how they got started. I have been a fan of  CHI hair products for such a long time. Actually, my first ever hair straightener was the CHI ceramic hair styling iron. 

Not only did we get a tour but we had the opportunity to meet Basim Shami who is the CEO of Farouk systems and son of Farouk Shami, the man that created Farouk Systems. We also had the opportunity to meet Jose Luis Lopez who is the CEO & founder of Lopez Marketing Group, which is a Hispanic Marketing and Public Relations agency who provides   advertising and branding for businesses such as Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Johnson&Johnson and many more.

Our day began with a tour of their warehouse, where boxes were filled with product ready to be shipped and employees were busy using all kinds of machines to help with the production process. After that, we headed back to get an exclusive look at where their social media and  their marketing was done unfortunately this was exclusive to us so no photography was allowed in there.

We then headed to see their salon where they gave us a brief background story on who Farouk Shami is and his incredible idea to come up with the first ammonia free hair care system. But this was not all, we also got to meet two fabulous ladies who gave us a presentation all about Farouk Systems and even a sneak peak of their  upcoming 2016 product releases.

Guys all I have to say is to stay tuned because you are all going to love everything that will be coming out soon. To end this incredible day we sat down and introduced ourselves and enjoyed a delicious lunch with Basim Shami and Jose Luis and their team. I have to admit even though I am great at public speaking I was a bit nervous. It was incredible to hear the amount of charity they have done for the public, they even helped salon owners who were affected by hurricane Sandy by donating 1 million in CHI and Bio silk product to help them restart their businesses. 


This comes to show you how humble and incredible human beings these people are. I want to thank Basim, Jose Luis and all of their team as well as the Houston Latina bloggers for providing this amazing experience that I will never forget.  They were also so generous to provide us with their products which I will be doing a review on very shortly so stay tune.

  • This is defiantly a product that i will be recommending to family and friends, i did see a change in my face completion. I usually always have very tired dry and dull looking face but since i started using it i notice my face feeling softer looking brighter. Their skincare is natural and organic with anti aging solutions. I have brag on snapchat how i don't even want to wear makeup just because my face looks  and feels amazing. The Eye cream was exactly what i was looking for i apply at night after my nigh time cream and i wake up with hydrated under eyes. Being a beauty blogger i tend to always be trying out new foundations and different makeup products which requires me to take care of my face even more it also came to my attention that my under eye was in need of extreme hydration and this totally helped. I will mention that the first time i tried out their ultra plumping hydration mask i did experience a tingling sensation, after reading the back of their product it did stated that is was completely normal. However after continuing to use it i didn't have that sensation no longer.
