Holiday Haul

I began my Christmas shopping on a good note, my friend Trish had brought a bunch of MAC stuff to work and wanted to sell it cheap, so I bought the new white packaging lipstick from Glitter and Ice col. in Creme dNude...I mainly wanted it for the packaging so I could add it to my collection. Next to it is the newest Balm by Loreal and it's pretty good, it has Argan oil in it. And how come I have never seen this quad? I love Maybelline's Charcoal Smokes quad! I wore it yesterday while doing some shopping, I love it!

EOTD - Charcoal Smokes
I added falsies for a finished glamour look :)

I'm super excited about my early Christmas gift from my husband, he bought me my fave, The One by D and G. I ran out of this years ago and never could get myself to spend the money on another (it's $75 and up!) I can't even describe the scent, all I can say is that it's divine! I ran into this cute glittery nail polish by Color Club but I don't know what it's called but looks very similar to China Glazes Ruby Slippers. Over at CVS one day I picked up Big Money from the new Gems Crush SH col. which is a gold glitter base with sporatic lavender glitters...Very pretty, but why Big Money? I also got Essie's Ladylike which is ok, and Revlon in Graceful, which is a unique creme taupe grey.

CG's PR sent me the new Sofia Vergara collection for me to try...The Lashblast is a 24hr mascara and the lipstick is a duo ended wand with pretty colors to mix and match....Lip color is called Glimmer.

I had been watching some Youtube videos and decided to do a dollar store haul! I went on Friday and came home with lots of goodies...I got 4 NYC liquid eyeliners in Jet Black and Sable, a couple of colors of CG Smoothers which is a very soft and moisturizing lip color, 2 pairs of the very natural Kiss eyelashes in 02 which are super comfortable to wear! I wore them on Saturday in the picture from earlier! Love these and just may have to go get more! Last but not least I found a PopDuo pencil by Loreal which has a shadow stick on one side and a kohl eyeliner on the other, I love this! I only got one because I wanted to try it first but I may go back for the grey and the lavender :)

My local Texas Dollar had these crackle polishes for $1.50, I have tried them and they seem to be good but as it turns out I am not a fan of any crackle polish whether it be from OPI or China Glaze or even SH. I just don't like the way it looks :(

I found my first love of nail polish from like years ago! I began to get into cosmetics I'd say around 2005 and around that time I bought Rainyday Red, which is a gorgeous reddish Fuchsia Pink. I still have my first bottle which is dried out. I could never really match the color but I found it again! I found it and grabbed it costing me only 50 cents. I also bought this bracelet that I've been trying to find in unique colors, I still would like to find a pink one but only found red that day, so I decided to get it :)

Last but not least is a couple of designer imposter perfumes. I got the Harajuku Lovers col. and love the scents! I have tested out the real deals and I can't remember which one it was that I liked so I just decided to get all of them, except for 'Love'.

If you're a Movie Aficionado....

Maya Entertainment will be giving away 5 DVD's per day!

Excited about Latin film-making? I sure am :) Excited, that is, because latino film makers have recently dominated the film industry, not just with short-films but more so big pictures. As a latina I am proud of this accomplishment! Latino's and/or film enthusiasts please take note, this campaign is one that has to be talked about! I long for these opportunities to share the info with my readers! Today and for the next few weeks Maya Entertainment will be giving away 5 films per day on their Facebook. Most importantly, there is reason behind it...that is to have a broad range of appreciation for Latin film making... What a great way to get the word out!

Recap: Beauty, Hollywood, and VS Fashion Show '11

So, who watched? Sad to say as much as I wanted to, I did not...booo!!!! I get so busy at home with the family and then I'm so super tired that I just want to pass out and fall asleep by 7pm!

One thing is for sure, I am going to do some research on VS models diets! I heard about it on the radio and I am super excited to find out their secrets....I am constantly on a diet so I thought I could learn a thing or two, lol!

If you watched, what was your favorite part of the show?

Terra was present for coverage and if you too would like to see pics, read interviews, watch videos and learn about those diets visit the Terra website here


Beautiful and pregnant Roselyn Sanchez had her baby shower recently in LA! It was hosted by Johnson's....Super cool, I would love to be hosted by Johnson's for my next baby shower! *hint hint* lol
Look at those cute bears in the background...Oh yeah and the beautiful Puerto Rican Roselyn.....She has always been a favorite of mine :)

With her husband, Eric Winter

Last but not least..AMA's were on recently and I totally forgot that Taylor Swift is a spokesperson for CoverGirl....her skin looks nice here and she wore that new NatureLuxe silk foundation that I've been wanting to try. I have to admit this isn't the best pic of Taylor Swift as of today but just wanted to share.

And who doesn't love a little Katy Perry to soothe the eyes? I swear every time I see a pic of her I just wanna call her up and say, "Hi Katy, can you do my makeup...and hair...and design my outfit?"......Fact is her makeup artist Jake Bailey is the one who does it and always seems to do a phenomenal job! Luckily for CoverGirl, that night they got to team up with him.

Super pretty as always, and I wish I hadn't known that they used Guerlain for her finishing powder because I love it and now I want to try it!

 What they used on Katy:

Guerlain's Les Viollettes loose powder

NARS blush Madly

NARS shimmer blush Orgasm

Liquid liner marker from Le Metier

COVERGIRL LashBlast 24HR mascara (Not yet in stores)

 COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast eyeliner, Violet voltage

 COVERGIRL  Lip Perfection lipcolor, Flame

Multi-tasking Brush: Sedona Lace Synthetic Blender

It was a video on YouTube that prompted me to purchase the lovely Sedona Lace Synthetic Blender Eb 13 brush. I had to see it for myself! Ok, so this little gem can pack on shadow on the lids, blend, and apply highlight for the brows all in one, and it can have other uses. I have been using the same brush to do all three and I'm loving it :)

There are 2 of them in the picture because when I ordered it there was a promo when you buy one you get one free....How cool is that?!

According to them:
"This brush is not only great for eyeshadow but concealer as well. Makeup artists have been using crease brushes for years to help blend out creamy product like concealer or eyeshadow base. This brush was formulated with synthetic bristles to apply the perfect amount of product. The bristles are also nice and dense to for easily blending out darker crease colors. Tip: Use this as brush for contouring the nose. The shape and tapered bristles will help you blend out hard lines easily."

$8.95 each

I say:
It is very soft. Ferrule is of good quality. Very easy to use! Has become one of favorite eye brushes. 

They have other products to offer...Check them out at!
