Urban Decay Shape Tape Contour Concealer

I recently just purchased this concealer and decided to add it to my complexion routine this weekend! My makeup looked flawless, specially under my eye area. Sometimes, my concealer creases so I have to be careful of what type of formula I use. 

I decided to use the new Tarte Shape Tape contour concealer in the shade Medium. I applied my foundation as normal, but when it came to the concealer, I highlighted by applying it in the shape of an upside down triangle underneath my eye area. Then used my beauty blender to buff out the concealer and I noticed the other eye and the concealer was already setting in without me blending it. Right away, moved on to the other eye and blended like so. The formula is full coverage and it set pretty quickly. I still went ahead and used the Laura Mercier Translucent powder to set lightly. 

The concealer lasted all day and didn't' crease at all!! Overall, I was amazed at the results and had to share with you guys, because the hype is real. I really recommend using this concealer. Oh... and before I forget, you can only get this concealer at Ulta. It's exclusive to them only. 

Until next time............Xoxo

Kat Von D Voxbox

I was lucky enough to have been sent this Kat Von D Voxbox and couldn't wait to try. This time around I was sent the new Kat Von D Everlasting Lip liner in the shade Lolita for me to try out and review. 

The formula is really velvety, super pigmented and dried quickly but without leaving your lips drying. They still felt hydrated and soft. This shade is a dusty rose with a semi-matte finish. 

I applied this lip liner in the morning and lasted me through breakfast and lunch. After lunch, I did have to reapply because I ate a sandwich and it completely fell off. 

Overall, I was happy with the product and I'm excited to try the other 29 shades she has to offer.

Last night.....

Every night, I have my nighttime routine where I take off my makeup, cleanse my skin and prep my skin for the night by using my go-to skincare products. I try to use a mask every night for different types of concerns, well yesterday I decided to use a sheet mask. I had one in my skincare drawer and it happened to be a Sephora Pearl Face Mask. I placed it on my face and left it on for 15 minutes....... 

15 minutes later, I took it off and it was still a little wet. Rubbed the excess serum on my face and went to bed. 

Lately, my lips have been so dry and even around my lips, skin was peeling off. I woke up this morning with nothing on my lips, no dry areas and they felts so soft. I just wanted to tell you that it was this sheet mask that fixed all the dry area. I couldn't believe it. I used this mask because I wanted brightening not knowing it was going to hydrate my lips!! 

So in case you are looking for a hydrating mask for dry skin, this is the one!!!! I'm just amazed because I've been using lip butters and vaseline to hydrate my lips but that wasn't working and not knowing this sheet mask was going to fix the problem, and it did! 

Well hopefully this is useful to someone out there..... and this is not sponsored at all!! 

Until next time...Xoxo

Angels Spring Training 2017 in Tempe, AZ - Weekend Getaway

So because we are huge Angels Baseball fans we decided to hit the road and visit them in Tempe, AZ to watch a couple games during spring training. This was our second year doing this and my kids love it especially my boy. He's a huge baseball fan and loves the game. 

We left California this past Friday and arrived safely in Tempe, AZ on Friday Morning. Checked into our hotel and met up with a cousin for lunch. The Arizona weather was great, wasn't hot at all, it was just perfect. 

Our first game was going to be in the evening so we had plenty of time to rest up and change into our baseball gear. They won that night which was perfect. Second day was Saturday afternoon and this was our first experience in the lawn area. We liked it but not a fan of the grass area. Although my son did enjoy it because during the angels hitting warm ups, he was able to catch some home run hits. 

Overall, this weekend was great! We loved every piece of it and it's all about making memories. 

Until next time..... Xoxo

Wish list........

As you all know, I'm also a beauty junkie. I love trying out new products and also splurging. I can never have enough makeup. Currently right now, I've been seeing hearing a lot of great things for new and old products that are in the market and wanted to share.... 

1. Tarte Shapetape Concealer: I've seen and heard the reviews on Instagram and Youtubers raving about this product. Although, I have so many concealers, I still have to try this out! 

2. Ole Henriksen Oil Control Cleanser: I have oily skin and I'm always looking for products to reduce or help me with my skin type and because this also helps with pores, I am so down to try. 

3. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion: This I've seen this out for a while but haven't had a chance to get it. I don't break out that much but when I do, I would like to have this product come in handy at those times. 

4. Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette: As if I don't have a lot of eye shadow palettes already, I need this one in my collection. I'm a fan of this brand and anything they come out with is always good. Can't wait to get this one. 

I can go on and on with my wish list but I'm sure we all have that problem that we have other priorities and not just makeup. If anyone else has tried any of these products out let me know. Would love to hear reviews... 

Until next time....... Xoxo

New Beauty Find Friday....

Not sure why I haven't tried this item out but I finally did and I was amazed at results. I'm part of the Sephora Beauty Insider Program and currently right now, this item is a perk, where you can redeem your points for a beauty deluxe sample. 

I decided to give it a try. This Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay changed my whole life. I applied it at night after I took off my makeup, left it on for 10 minutes and washed it off with warm water. I continued with my nighttime routine.... the difference was the morning after. My skin, no lie, felted really soft, not oily at all, and really smooth. 

I was definitely amazed and that day I kept getting compliments of how my skin looked so good. Weird, right. I'm in love! If you haven't already tried it , you should! I'm a big fan of masks and use one daily and trust me this review is not sponsored, although I wish it would! 

Until next time................. Xoxo

Turning 33!

Yesterday, I was filled with so many emotions. I was sad, happy, amazed and overall blessed to have been turning 33 years old. I know people tell you "Age is nothing but a number", I get that but for some reason I was a little upset because 33 is closer to 35, and then 40 (in my mind)... but towards the end of the day, I just embraced it and kept counting my blessings. 

It was a day full of love and birthday wishes. I spent it with my loved ones and everyone made me feel so special. So far, this year, I can feel it, it's going to be an amazing year and can't wait! 

Until next time........... Xoxo

Change is always good!

Guys, just wanted to share a picture. I made some changes to my hair this past weekend, and I"m actually pretty excited for my new change. It was something that didn't go according to plan but I'm still embracing the change and it's actually made me realize that change is good. 

It's not as red as it looks, the sun was hitting it and it looks brighter but I'm digging it. 

It definitely happened for a reason correct?! 

What do you guys think? 

Until next time........... Xoxo

Volume for Days!

Trying out another new beauty product, look at me, I'm on a roll! 

Decided to open up this new beauty and I'm loving it so far. Normally, I stick to my Falsies from Maybelline NY Volume Express Mascara but today I giving YSL The Shock Volumizing Mascara a try. It's a new mascara they added to their collection. 

Mascara comes in three different colors black, blue and burgundy. Your lashes will see that  extra volume without clumping and almost give you the illusion you have fake lashes. 

If you love volume, you have to try for sure! 

Until next time........... Xoxo

Flawless and Matte

So, I like change but when it comes to trying new makeup I'm always a little skeptical. For once I gave it a-go and decided to try out a new primer. My skin is really oily and I like to use face primers that are going to mattify my skin and reduce the appearance of pores. 

This product has been out in the market and I've have been wanting to try it. I"m referring to the Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer. It definitely did smooth out my skin and acted as a a filler for that flawless look I was looking for. Also, worked for my skin type which was a  plus. 

*Using the primer with Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation in Shade #3

I have been incorporating it to my skin prep before my makeup applications and I'm loving the results. Especially for when I did my make up this past Sunday for "Girl's Night". My foundation looked really flawless and it looked great in pictures! 

If you are looking for a new primer, I definitely recommend getting a sample or even buying it. You won't be disappointed. 

Until next time............. Xoxo

Valentine's Day Celebration

I feel this holiday shouldn't even exist. My husband and I are always celebrating our love and constantly trying to keep our marriage alive so for us it was just another date night. 

We decided to go to a local restaurant at the @packingdistrict in Anaheim and get a bite to eat and some drinks . We definitely enjoy it every time we're together and yesterday was another one to add to the books. 

Started off at @UmamiBurger for some appetizers and drinks. 

 Then moved over to @eccopizzeriaCM for another round of drinks! 

.... and finally ended the night with some dessert from @rockymtnchocinc, Chocolate Covered Strawberries of course, my fave! 

Always good times!

Dinner and Drinks!

Last night was actually so much fun! I celebrate #Galentines with my sisters and cousin.
 We decided we were going to get dressed up for dinner and drinks. 

What better movie to watch then "Fifty Shades Darker". The showing was later at night so we decided to hit up El Torito for some good ol' margaritas and appetizers before the movie started. 


Details: Black Denim Jeans, T-Shirt from Forever21, Leather Jacket from BlankNYC Jeans 

I had read the book  and was already aware of the story line but I was a little disappointed because the book had far more juicy details than the movie but overall it was a good movie. I give it an 8! 

Image result for fifty shades darker

It's definitely a movie that you want to go see with your friends or maybe just your significant other. 

Overall my Sunday was definitely what I like to say "Sunday, Funday!" 

Until next time............. Xoxo
