Juno & Co Microfiber velvet sponge

20190104_152637

Hello Everyone. Happy 2019!

Beauty sponges come in all different shapes and sizes. A lot of makeup brands have their own sponges but not all of them work good because some of them soak up your foundation, they rip easily or they don’t feel nice, some people don’t  love the bouncy  sponges and others don’t love the stiffness but some do. I have tried so many makeup sponges which you can read about it here.

Today I want to talk about a beauty sponge that I have seen all over Instagram and Youtube. First I watched Brunette Freckle video and all the others she posted about the sponge. Long story short Iris loved it and she had extras and she gifted me one to try out. I also watched Kathleen Lights video and Kayleigh Noelle video. They all loved it.

ABOUT THE SPONGE

This microfiber velvet sponge is super affordable, it is only $6 and you can find it on the Juno & Co website. This sponge is made with velvet soft microfibers and it blends out your foundation so good. It gives you a very good airbrushed, full coverage finish. This sponge does not soak up any of your foundation at all. You can even do your whole face with this one sponge including your cream blushes and bronzers to your powders.

I was shocked when I used this sponge, it does however leave you a matte look just to throw it out there but I have no problem with it because I’m not much of a dewy person. I have no problems when cleaning this sponge the product comes off easily. You can use this sponge dry but I prefer it wet because it gets bigger and bouncier.

Don’t be scared of the tiny microfibers they will not transfer and pill to your face. I know when I tried the elf cosmetics dual sided  silicone blender it left all the black felt from the flocked side after the second use. All-in-all I love this Juno & Co sponge and I would totally recommend this to all of you. They have so many other sponges that I haven’t tried yet. They also have makeup brushes that I want to try as well. I’m so sorry I don’t have before and after pictures of my foundation with two different sponges. If you would like to see how this sponge performs VS a regular sponge like the Morphe one please let me know.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hello everyone long time no see. I thrifted this dress and I found it online here if you are interested but limited sizes.

This dress is perfect for those holiday parties coming up or pretty much any fancy event or just a dinner date. I added booties and any other strappy heel will look cute as well.

Hello Kitty Cafe

IMG_20180902_225615_221

Yesterday I went to the Hello Kitty Cafe for the second time. The first time I didn’t take pictures because I forgot. So this time around I took a few pictures to share with you all. This won’t be the last time I visit, it is a pop-up shop and I believe they close next year. My boyfriend is nice enough to keep bringing me here till they close shop, not going to complain I love this cafe. The only thing I did forget to do was take a picture of the outside. Next visit for sure I will take a picture and share with you all.

I really want to try the lemonade next.

Affordable eye shadow palette.

20180810_140418

Hi everyone! It’s been a while and I really missed blogging. Today I want to share this super affordable eye shadow palette with you all. I have watched a lot of YouTube videos on this Palette and I finally decided to buy it. Most reviews I read are really positive ones honestly and the only thing people don’t like about this Palette is the fall out. I have to agree, it has a lot of fall out which I really don’t mind at all just tap the excess off.

20180810_133816

This palette swatches very nice especially when you pick up a eye brush. They blend perfectly and easily. This palette reminds me of the elf mad for plaid 2, the colors are very similar and it’s also super affordable.

This Wet N Wild palette is just as good as a high end one you buy at Sephora or Ulta. I really recommend this Palette to anyone, I have yet to try the other shades. How do you all few about this Palette?

20180802_104320

I’ve had this Palette for two weeks now and the other day I wore this on a hot day and it lasted all day on my eyes and I didn’t add any eye primer. I was sweating and none of it budged. Nothing but good feedback on this beauty. I hope all of you have a great weekend. Let me know if any of tried it or the other shades.

Would you love to read a blog post on some of my favorite wet n wild products that are just as good as the palette? Let me know. 💜

Colorful coffee date

20180510_125148

Today May 10 I get to celebrate Mexican Mother’s day (I am Mexican). Feliz Dia de las madres to all you lovely mothers. Today my twin sister and I got to hang out in Monterey, CA and we got to hang out with our kids and sipped on some delicious lattes from a coffee shop called Water and leaves at the Old fisherman’s wharf. It is our favorite place to visit every chance we get. If you are ever in California I really recommend you visit Monterey. I hope you all enjoy this post.

Soap & Glory Peach Pout Lipstick Balms 🍑

20180408_133557

These Soap and Glory Peach Pout balmy lipsticks are some of the best formulas and perfect for the spring and summer. These are creamy and very moisturizing on the lips. Honestly I know I’m going to be wearing these almost every single day especially the shade FREEDOM OF PEACH because it is the perfect shade of peach and makes it look like I had a bunch of yummy fruit on a warm sunny day. I can’t wait to wear it with a bronzed glowy face. Have any of of you tried these yet? I really recommend these to you all. Just find your perfect peach pout and you are all set for the spring and summer. At times I love to dab some on the lips and blend with my finger for a natural look.

PhotoGrid_1523220646842

I love all three shades. They are perfect for everyday use and super wearable. Peach ball and peach for the sky can be a perfect nude for some of you.

You can purchase these at the Soap & Glory site or any place that carries this collection like Target, Ulta and I believe Walgreen’s.

I hope you all enjoy this mini post. I will be sharing the whole collection of the Soap & Glory lip products I received.

I do recommend you exfoliate before applying these because they do cling to your dry lips just a little bit.

20180206_162137

I made a poll on insta stories to see if you all were interested on a part two on how to style the pink loafers and everyone said, YES. So here is my part two and I hope you all like the outfits I came up with. They are super simple but I love them and hopefully this gives you some inspiration.

IN THE TRENCH – This light pink trench is super cute. I love how you can pair it with a lot of neutral colors including a light washed pair iof jeans with a simple silk camisole.

20180208_195234

POP OF PINK – A black dress is such a classic staple in anyones wardrobe and the good thing about a black dress is, you can pair any color shoes with it for a stand out look. Just add a nice leather jacket for a cool look.

20180208_195303

PRETTY IN PINK – I really love this look because it is so casual and comfy. The white T-shirt and denim skirt really balances off the two shades of pink.
