L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds: Blake | Review and swatch

L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds: Blake
I'm always on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick and, althought I already have a few that I love, I couldn't not buy this one. L'Oreal released recently a collection of pure red lipsticks inspired by some celebrities in the same concept as their nude lipsticks line. 

Blake's (Blake Lively) lipstick from the L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds is a slightly pink toned red with blue undertones, which is perfect if you want your teeth to appear whiter.

I don't know if this shade would be everyone's favorite, but I do recommend heading over to your local drugstore and taking a look at the collection because they most likely have a red that you'll love.

In terms of lasting power, I'd say it's nothing special: it would smuge if you eat/drink and you might have to reapply throughout the day, but it will last longer if you do two layers and blot/set it when you firt apply it.

My Makeup Collection and Storage | 2014

I uploaded my makeup collection to my YouTube channel a few days ago, so here's the link for all of you as well.

I didn't think I would be doing a makeup collection cause I've never been happy with the way it's setup and all of that, but since I'm moving soon, I wanted to do it before it was too late (I can't really bring my whole makeup collection with me).

MAC Lipstick in Diva | Review and swatch

MAC Lipstick in Diva | Review and swatch
I have been wanting to buy Diva by MAC since last year but for some reason (probably because I bought too many lipsticks) I never got around to it. It seems like this year it's going to be just as popular, or even more, so I decided to go ahead and make a trip to my closest MAC counter before I started buying other lipsticks. It's all just a cycle, really.

As you can see, it looks really dark on the tube but it's not as intimidating when you wear it. If you're into wearing dark lipsticks, this shade of burgundy is most likely perfect for you. It's also a matte formula, which I have been really liking this year, and it's up to MAC standards as far as longlasting/pigmentation/hydration goes.

You can get it at MAC counters or MAC stores, or at their online website for £15.50 in the UK, 19.50€ in Spain or $16 in the US.

Batiste dry shampoo Medium and Brunette | Review

Batiste dry shampoo Medium and Brunette
I bought the Batiste dry shampoo in Medium and Brunette on my most recent trip to London. I had heard people talking about it and I decided to give it a go. I initially wanted to get the darkest shade they have since my hair is dark brown, but they were out of it so I got this one instead.

It is a great alternative to the original one if you have brown hair and you struggle with white residue whenever you use dry shampoo. Batiste makes the best dry shampoos (in my opinion) and this one is no different, the quality is the same as the other ones.

On the photo you can see what color it actually comes out when you spray it: an ashy brown color. If you have light brown hair, this is perfect for you. If you have dark brown hair, you should probably go for the darker shade (this one would work just fine if you work the product into your roots, but I reckon the other would work better).

The range includes one for blondes, two shades of brown (this one and a darker one) and a red head shade. You can find it at Boots for £3.99.

Kiko Ace of Diamond lipstick 27 | Review and swatch

Kiko Ace of Diamond lipstick 27
After hearing a lot of people (specially Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup) talk about this lipstick, and knowing how much I love my dark lipsticks, I decided I should go ahead and buy the Kiko Ace of Diamond lipstick in the number 27, which is from their Autumn 2014 collection. 

First things first, the packaging is stunning! It comes in this metallic slash mirrored tube that is gorgeous and it feels so much more expensive than it actually is. That sold me on it already.

If we talk about the liptick itself, it's a really pretty dark plum color, perfect for autumn and winter; and, something that I wasn't expecting, it's a matte formula! I've been a lot into matte lipsticks at the moment, so this made it even better.

It applies really nice, although I do wish the tip of the lipstick was more rounded so I could get go the corners easier. Here's a swatch of what it looks like:

And the price tag? It retails for 7.90€ in Spain and £7.90 in the UK.

September Favorites 2014 | Makeup, Skincare and Random Bits

September Favorites 2014 | Makeup, Skincare and Random Bits

Another month has gone by and it's time for my September favorites! I have a little bit of everything: makeup, skincare, fashion, tv...but you're going to have to watch my video below for that. Here I'm just going to talk you through makeup and skincare.

Pink Grapefruit body sorbet: I have a post on this if you want to see it HERE, but I'd just say this body lotion is light weight, it's not sticky and it smells amazing!

Maybelline Color Elixir lipgloss in Blush Essence: I also have a post on it HERE. It's a beautiful pink non-sticky lipgloss that you can wear on its own or over any pink/nude lipstick.

Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot treatment: it is a spot treatment for your blemishes and it works amazing because it dries them out really fast. 

Check the video below for more favorites!

¡Se ha acabado otro mes y toca ver mis favoritos de Septiembre! Tengo un poco de todo: maquillaje, ciudado de la piel, moda, series de televisión...pero vais a tener que ver el vídeo de abajo para todo eso. Aquí voy a hablaros del maquillaje y cuidado de piel.

Sorbet Corporal de Pomelo Rosa: hacer click AQUÍ para ir a un post que hice sobre ello, pero diré que esta loción corporal es muy ligera, no se pega y huele muy bien!

Brillo de labios Color Elixir de Maybelline en tono Blush Essence: también hice un post que podéis ver AQUÍ. Es un brillo rosa muy bonito que no se pega, y lo puedes llevar solo o encima de pintalabios rosa o nude.

Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot cuidado localizado: es un tratamiento para los granitos y funciona muy bien ya que los seca muy rápido.

No olvidéis ver mi vídeo para conocer el resto de mis favoritos:
