I thought it would take me a lot of time and products to find my HG foundation but I've finally found it. I tried MAC, NARS, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Laura Mercier, Chanel but they've got nothing on this foundation. Both the formula and the color match perfectly my skin, I am number 55 and it looks and feels super natural. I have combination and dry skin and most foundations cling to the dry patches and break me out but this is super light but covers very naturally the areas of redness. It has a lovely smell of fruits , very similar to Benefit's Coralista but it fades within minutes. And the price is another plus, it's half of what a MAC foundation costs and it has become my favorite by far!
This is the best bronzer ever! It's super finelly milled and compliments my skintone beautifully, I thought to try it because all the hype and because Temptalia always raves about it. I picked the shade 2 that strangely is darker than the 3 and I have a NC35-40 skintone, it has a tiny bit of orange in it which goes perfectly for a Latina skintone and it really looks like I went to the beach. The packaging is super luxurious, the compact has a mirror and I love the design. Totally would purchase again but I doubt I ever hit pan, you need the tiniest amount on the brush.
I got this on a holiday set and I think it's a regular mascara. It makes my lashes fuller and longer but I don't think I will repurchase it because it didn't wow me and I can find better mascaras at the drugstore.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

I was doubting about this product, lately I haven't had very good skin but was tired of heavy foundations. I've read a lot on blogs about this and decided to purchase, it's very sheer and smells like sunscreen but gives a bit of color and covers the small imperfections. I just put this , some concealer and cheek stain and it's perfect for a completely natural look. The shade Sand it's a tad darker than my skintone but it gives a lovely color and feels very comfortable. It hasn't made my skin itch or breakout nor cling to dry patches. Overall I love it but I will be using it on vacations or good skin days.
I'm so glad I got this sample because of all the hype everywhere I was dying to try this mascara and in the purchase of other things they gave me a travel size one. It's one of the worst mascaras I've ever tried! The brush is ok but is so clumpy and the worst part is that you can't take it off!! I have to use so much eye makeup remover and rubb my eyes so hard that it causes that some of my eyelashes fall! Hated it, I prefer Badgal mascara by far!
Eye Shadow -TheBalm - Shady Lady Eyeshadow Palette

I'm a horrible impulse buyer but this product didn't dissapointed me, it was on a sale (rare that in Mexico you find beauty sales) and I've read so much about theBalm that I ran for this. All the colors are super pigmented and complement my almost all neutral eyeshadow collection, that it's pretty small, but the purples are perfect for a smoky eye. It's thin and has a decent sized mirror, perfect for traveling and creating subtle and more dramatic looks.
I just got this for my bday and I'm so in love , the quality is amazing and all the colors are perfect to create a lot of looks. I just wish here in Mexico makeup wasn't as expensive as it is, I read in the US it costs 50 dollars and here it's almost the double! So, I love it but i don't think I would repurchase it...
I bought this on the Bronzed and Beautiful French Riviera palette (amazing by the way) and I love it, just for a touch of bronzer or contouring is great. The smell is a plus and the lady in the counter told me I could eat it, very weird but I guess if it's edible it's not as toxic as other products...but still a bit weird. It's expensive but if I ever hit pan I totally would repurchase it on the big size :)
My lovely boyfriend gave this as a present in a kit for my birthday and I wasn't sure about the color because it had a purple tone and thought it would look strange on my NC35 skintone but I absolutely love it, it looks like I just worked out a little and not at all weird. It almost has no shimmer and that makes it very natural, the color builds up and it looks super natural in a good way, perfect for everyday makeup. I've been using it almost everyday and love it!
I just bought this impulsively but I've been wanting it for ages! At first I thought it had too much shimmer but as the day passed by it really get along with my skin and it photographed beautifully, definately a HG product for me, can't wait for the summer to come and use it everyday!
When I was on the department store the perfume lady gave me a sample and I usually throw them because I'm very picky on perfumes. This I had to return and ask what fragance was because it smelled amazing, very fresh with citrus, mint and brown sugar. My mom gave it to me for Christmas and I wear it sporadically but the staying power is amazing, my clothes or coat smells for weeks after I use it. Love it!
This is my second bottle of this perfume, almost the only perfume I can stand. The staying power is not very good but love the smell, very fruity with citrus and just smells like summer. I'm almost done and won't purchase again because I have and eye on Chance Chanel but one of my favorite perfumes.
I'm super picky on perfumes, I just can't stand some fragances. This was a gift from my aunt and I want to love it but just can't stand the smell, and I have to admit it has an amazing stay power because from time to time I try to use it but haate the smell. I just keep it because the bottle is a little piece of art!
This was my first (of two :P) China Glaze polishes. Very pretty , girly and perfect for an everyday basis . Just the perfect pink ballerina color!
My first nude-ish nail polish. I really like it, perfect for my skintone and I've been using it for weeks! I thought it would be less peachy but I really like it and the glitter doesn't show up at all , very happy with this nailpolish!
