Hola Hola!

Summer collections this year have been in my opinion amazing but by terry is by far one of the most exciting ones with their new water colour stains! So today I wanted to show you my picks from the French Riviera summer 2014 Collection!

by terry tea to tan summer collection french riviera 2014

Let’s start with  Tea to tan! Is a gorgeous water colour bronzer contained in a glass bottle. The dispenser is really cool! as soon as you open the bottle it pushes up the dropper (which is made of glass as well) loading it and leaving ready for application! It dispenses just the right amount.

The formula itself it’s just like nothing I’ve seen before, very pigmented… I think I’m quite use to powder bronzers but  I’m happy to switch for this… it’s just amazing!

The way I apply it is dispensing it first onto the palm of my hand and then applying gently with my fingers blending at the same time onto cheeks, forehead and lightly in my nose, chin… you know just trying to achieve a nice sun kiss look :) It gives the most gorgeous and natural tan bronze look to the skin, there is not big shimmer or glitter on this, just a nice subtle glow. It last hours and hours, honestly, I’m impressed! I’ve combination / oily skin and I normally need a good primer for products to last a decent amount of time… I can use this without primer and it just last all day! I have even use it without any foundation… just on its own after moisturizer and it just gives the most natural “I’ve just been on a Caribbean holiday” look… I can NOT recommend this enough!

It looks very bright in the bottle but when applied it gives the most gorgeous cherry pink for a subtle ‘flushed’ and healthy look to the skin. It blends very easily, just as the bronzer it doesn’t dry to fast giving some time for blending. I like to use my fingers but a synthetic (stippling brush) could be useful too.

by terry summer 2014 review and swatches french riviera tint to lipAnd last but not least, the collection has two ‘tint to lip’: pink palace and beach game, I picked up beach game, as I though it would go better with my complexion. It a gorgeous… GORGEOUS shimmery orange shade, it looks very bright in the packaging but is not as bright and scary on the lips. I felt quite strange applying this on my lips as it literally felt like applying cold water! hehe! but it dries a few seconds after application. It wore very well, around 4-5 hours, but it doesn’t really survive a meal.. which is fine, I don’t really mind having to re apply, it’s actually quite a funny and cool (and cold) sensation! :)

Swatches galore!!

Hola chicas! Espero que hayas pasado un lindo fin de semana! hoy les quiero contar un poquito sobre la colección de maquillaje de verano de la marca By Terry! Si les soy honesta se muy poco de la marca pero he leído varias reviews sobre sus productos y siempre parecen ser super super buenos así que cuando vi esta colección, que en las fotos me pareció muy interesante, pense! esta bueno para el blog! (mentiras son excusas jajajaja! ), en fin! La colección se llama ‘French Riviera’ y bueno desde ya con ese nombre es invitadora no?

Lo diferente y llamativo de es que los productos son ‘water colours’ o colores en agua, tiene un bronzeador, colorete / rubor y dos productos para los labios…

Empecemos con el bronzeador (Tea to tan) ! O – M – G ! les cuento que no tenia altas expectativas con ningunos de estos productos pero este bronzeador me ha impresionado! Esta empacado en una botella de vidrio con un dispensador tipo gotero (tambien en vidrio) el cual se llena tan pronto abres la tapa tipo rosca. La formula es como les digo liquida, y la forma mas fácil de aplicarla en dispensándola primero en la palma de la mano y luego con los dedos de la otra mano aplicarla en el rostro así mismo difuminando en la frente, mejillas, un poquito en la nariz .. ya saben para tratar de imitar un poco un look de ‘acabo de estar en la playa’ jeje! Deja un acabado hermoso y muy natural! en la botella pareciera que tuviera una cantidad enorme de shimmer pero en la piel queda muy bonito. Dura horas! aveces lo uso hasta sin primer… sin base y aun así queda precioso! Como les digo da un aspecto bronzeado super real! Mejor dicho mi recomendado numero 1 de esta colección!

El siquiente producto es el ‘Cheek to cheek blush’ la botella también es de vidrio como el bronzeador, solo un poquito mas pequeña pero con el mismo sistema de gotero. Se ve super brillante pero en la piel como tal queda muy natural, dejando un tono rosado cereza precioso! Lo bueno de ambos es que no se secan tan rápido dando tiempo de difuminarlo. Yo lo utilizo con mis manos aunque una brocha tipo ‘stippling’ también puede ser buena opción.

Y por último para los labios! Tint to lip, es super brillante con un tono naranja y un poquito de shimmer! ahh me encanto!! La formula es igual, se siente super raro en los labios porque es como si te aplicaras agua fria! jejej pero luego a los pocos minutos se seca. Dura aproximadamente 4-5 horas y no pasa la prueba de comida, pero esta bien, no me molesta tener que re aplicarlo. : )

En resumen quede SUPER impresionada con esta colección, todo es espectacular, con un acabado muy natural y fácil de difuminar! Mejor dicho! Una colección muy innovadora :) Espero que esta review sea de ayuda!
¿Has probado alguno de estos productos?
Un abrazo grande y hasta la próxima!

Mac moody blooms eyeshadow picks! Deep fixation and artistic license

mac moody blooms eyeshadows deep fixation artistic license

Mac moody blooms eyeshadow deep fixationMac artistic license eyeshadow moody blooms collectionmac artistic license and deep fixation eyeshadow moody blooms collectionmac artistic license and deep fixation eyeshadow moody bloomsHello guys! today I have a couple of eyeshadows from the Mac Moody Blooms collection which it has 6 in total but I only pick a couple of them (deep fixation and artistic license)   that I thought I would give a lot of use and the most gorgeous in my opinion… I didn’t want the greens of purples as they normally just sit in my makeup drawers, so I tried to be more careful this time and choose only things I’m 100% sure I would use a lot  :)

Deep fixation, this was the very first one I set my eyes on, it’s a gorgeous medium tone brown with a lot of red on it and Veluxe Pearl finish! very very pigmented and soft.

Artist License is a pretty peachy gold, it reminds me a lot to Nars ‘orgasm’ blush, it could easily be Nars ‘orgasm’ eyeshadow really hehehe! It also a Veluxe Pearl. Very pigmented and almost duo chrome, it’s so pretty and it looks amazing in the inner corner of the eyes.

I’m really happy with my picks both colours are very easy to use and they would definitely be gorgeous on any skin tone in my opinión, they have a metallic finish but nothing to horribly shimmery. The pigmentation is excellent and they last a long time on my lids as long as I have a good primer. Whilst writing this review I was thinking … what else do I say about these… and honestly there is nothing more to say really LOL they are really good, gorgeous colours, the only bad thing is that they are limited edition! why mac?

Have you pick anything from Moody Blooms? Tell me about your picks!

Hola Hola! hoy vengo con un par de sombras de la colección Moody blooms de Mac! La colección tiene 6 sombras pero decidí irme por las que realmente les daría mas uso y pues las mas hermosas en mi opinión jejeje!

Empecemos! primero tenemos Deep fixation! definitivamente la primera en la que puse mis ojos! es un marrón con sub tonos rojos, muy muy pigmentada y súper suave con acabado ‘Veluxe Pearl’ las cuales son mas que todo metálicas.

Artist License por otro lado es un lindo melocotón muy claro con tonos dorados, me recuerda a mucho al colorete de nars ‘Orgasm’, podría decir que es la versión sombra jejeje! También con acabado ‘Veluxe Pearl’, queda preciosa en el area cerca del lagrimal.

Estoy muy feliz con mis ‘picks’ ejejeje! ambos son colores muy favorables para cualquier persona, son metálicos pero sin ser horrorosamente brillantes o shimmer, la pigmentación es excelente y duran un montón en mis párpados previamente preparados con un buen primer :D al escribir esta review estaba pensando… pero bueno que mas digo de estas sombras… la verdad es que no tengo nada malo que decir de ellas, solo que son edición limitada! (¿porque Mac?! ) son honestamente excelentes! valen la pena ; )

¿Has comprado algo de la colección Moody blooms? Cuéntame tus favoritos :D

Mac moody blooms lipstick picks!

Mac moody blooms lipsticksmac moody blooms lipsticks moody bloom phosphorescsent pheromonal reviewmac moody blooms review and swatchesMac moody blooms lipsticks swatchesmac moody blooms lipstick swatchesmac moody bloom pheromonal sheen supreme lipstick review swatchesmac moody blooms phosphorescent sheen supreme lipstick swatchesHello! I hope you having a great day! Today I have a few lipsticks to show you from the Mac moody blooms collection which from the promo pictures seems to be very much inspired by an exotic jungle and flowers! hehe! it has lots of green, brown and gold tones on it, definitely not the typical summer collection for me but I think is what it makes it really interesting and cool :)

The collection has 6 lipsticks in total, I have 3 today to show you; they are all  ‘sheen supreme’ a finish or type of mac lipsticks that I haven’t tried before but that I’ve been very interested in (on the fence about…) as it seems to be hit and miss in the beauty community. If you haven’t heard about them before they are supposed to be a type of hybrid – lipstick / gloss product. The packaging is also a little bit different, it comes in a glossy cylindric tube  but with the same vanilla scent than others Mac lipsticks.

I like the sheen supremes, I find them very soft and I like the glossiness they provided without being sticky, they feel a little bit like a gel on the lips. They aren’t very long-lasting, just about 2-3 hours and take a few layers to make it completely opaque on the lips and in the process they could look a little bit patchy… which it takes a little extra work to make them look even (annoying!), it settles on the lip lines but is not really noticeable in ‘real life’… in the close up pictures looks 10 times worst! The colours in this collection are very pretty my favourite is Pheromonal! Moody bloom is very pretty and unique, it actually reminds me of Liquer, a lipglass from the ‘Indulge’ collection from last year (you can see swatches here. Phosphorescent is lovely but I wanted it to be a little bit more coral on me… it looks really pink on my lips, still pretty! :)

And that’s all for today! Have you seen / check this collection yet? Let me know!
Big hugs ! xx

Hola hola! ¡Espero que estés super bien! El día de hoy tengo unas cuantas cositas de la colección Moody blooms de Mac! La cual por las fotos promocionales parece estar inspirada en una jungla exotica! ejeje! con colores verdes, marrones, doradosMejor dicho! :D no es la típica colección de verano pero creo que es lo que la hace más interesante :) y bueno sin más demora pasemos a ver las fotos :)

La colección tiene 6 labiales ‘sheen supreme‘ un acabado que no he probado antes pero del que es estado súper curiosa ya que muchas personas parecen amarlo y otras odiarlo, básicamente son labiales pigmentados pero con acabado brillante como si tuvieras gloss, algo así como combinación labial / gloss en un solo tubito.

Las diferencias entre ‘sheen supreme‘ y los demás labiales de Mac no van solo en la formula sino también en el empaque el cual es cilíndrico y brillante – el aroma si es el típico vainilla de Mac :) De los 6 tengo 3, Moody Bloom, Pheromonal y phosphorescent.

Me gustan los sheen supremes, son muy suaves y brillantes pero para nada pegajosos! No son los mas duraderos, tan solo de 2-3 horas y toca pasar varias capas para que el color quede opaco… otra cosita molesta es que se queda en las lineas de los labios, se ve peor en mis fotos pero no tan notable en la vida real. Los colores de esta colección son súper bonitos! mi favorito es Pheromonal, el mas único definitivamente Moody blooms, tiene unos destellos dorados preciosos! casi me recuerda a ‘liquer‘ un lipglass de la colección ‘Indulge’ del año pasado. Phosphorescent es lindo pero quería que se viera un poco más melocotón pero igual es un rosado muy bonito y universal :)

Y eso es todo por hoy chicas! Has visto los labiales de la colección ‘Moody Blooms’?

Un abrazo! xx

MAC alluring aquatic lipsticks swatches

Hi guys! I hope you are having a wonderful week! I’ve been quite lazy lately and not being posting as often as I would like to but had a little more family and organisation ‘time’ and also took some time to take lots of pictures… but anyways today I have a couple of lipsticks from the new Mac summer collection “Alluring Aquatic” – there weren’t many swatches online which made it a little bit difficult to choose the items I wanted it, so at the end I just went for two ‘safe’ options, lipsticks always are! hehe!

First of all let me just mentioned about the packaging, this collection comes is a lovely teal colour and little water droplets that you can actually feel, such a cool ideal for a summer collection! : )

Hola Hola! Espero que estés teniendo una semana super linda! yo por mi parte he estado super flojis con el blog pero he pasado unas semanas llena de organización y tiempo en familia… ah y también con muchos problemas con el internet pero bueno ! jeje! Hoy les quiero mostrar un par de labiales de la colección “Alluring Aquatic” de Mac, al principio se me hizo muy difícil escoger, ya que no habían muchos ‘swatches’ en la web, pero me atreví y me fui por la opción fácil… dos labiales! los labiales siempre son las cositas que nos llaman ¿no les parece?

Primero que todo quería mencionar sobre el empaque de esta colección! me gusta muchísimo, se han ido con todo un tema acuático, con color verde azulado y ‘gotitas’ plástica que se sienten cuando las tocas, super bonito! Continue reading
