Beauty Favorites of the Month-November

Araceli V.

Hey bbs!

Happy November, these last few months have been flying been, like damn. Today I’m sharing all my favorite beauty goodies that I’ve been using for this month.

Let’s do this…

the ordinary retinol 0.5% in Squalane product review

The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane

I recently founds out that I have a dairy allergy and my skin is going crazy. Anytime I have ANY type of dairy, yes, that means Ranch (feel free to cry for me) my skin turns into a scaly monster. yuckk!! This skincare product has been saving my face (literally!). I know, I know, Retinol sounds scary but I promise you this stuff is painless to use and leaves you with the most gorgeous supple and dewy skin.

Coverfx Blurring Primer

I’ve been filming alot of videos for my channel and needed a primer that was going to withstand a full day of makeup + possibly blur out those pesky pores near your nose & forehead. This primer does the job, it goes on really silky and really does blur out pores and leaves a great canvas for makeup.

Temptu X Boxycharm Liquid Glow

This liquid glow is AMAZING! I’ve been using it with my foundation for an extra dewy look. It has a great consistency that pairs well with matte + even glowy foundation formulas. The finish is like a beautiful rose gold almost vacation vibe.

I’m having an eyebrow moment right now and have been waiting for this day. The day I no longer have to maintain my eyebrows. I rarely (like every 2 mos) pluck my brows because I’m loving the fuller bushier brow. So I love using this powder to fill in the sparse areas to finish off the brows. Also, the colors are great eyeshadows if you’re in a pinch!

Bare Mineral Soft Focus Explore Eye & Cheek color

As part of my simple everyday makeup, I dug through my makeup case for a neutral brown and found this loose eyeshadow that is perfection. It’s the perfect muted color that goes with pretty much everything.

What beauty products have you guys been loving this month, share! I’d love to test out some more beauty goodies.

Beauty & Skincare Favorites of the Month-October

Araceli V.

Hey babes!

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared my current favorite beauty & skincare products. I’m pretty open to trying new products but I have my go-to products every month with a few rotating favorites. Grab your coffee or tea and enjoy the beauty talk!

  1. The Ordinary-Coverage Foundation

This is hands down the best foundation I’ve used in a very long time. This is comparable to any high-end foundation on the market right now. It gets 5 stars in all the important features like coverage, finish and coloring. For me the color is really key. I have olive/yellow undertones and have had a hard time finding the right color foundation. Well ladies, look no further. Not to mention the finish is soooo natural. It’s my skin but so much better.

2. Becca-Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer

I’ve mentioned my tried & true concealer is Tarte Shape Tape but I’ve found a new lover! hahaha They have different coverage & finishes so it’s not cheating, right? This concealer is lightweight but still offers great coverage (take it from my dark eye circles). It has a faint luminous finish which is ideal for those light, dewy make up days. I also love to layer this on top of the Tarte Shape Tape to make the under eye area a little less cakey. Pro-Tip: Check out eBay for cheaper (legit) options. ;P

3. It Cosmetics-Brow Power Eyebrow pencil in Universal Taupe

This is a great brow pencil! The color is perfect and last a long time. It’s super easy to apply and great for travel because it comes along with a brush to brush out your brows out. 2-in-1, hell yea!

4. AOA Studio-Pre & Hyper Fiber Mascara

Whoa-So this is a new come up that I recently come across and have been loving! This mascara is a two-fer meaning a two step process. First you apply the pre then follow up with the hyper-lash. Now when I first tried this product out I was so surprised that the second step actually comes with little fibers that attach to your lashes for extra volume & length. The finish is pretty awesome full/fluttery lashes. Quick tip-I’m not very fond of the formula of the 1st step so I just switch it out for my fave mascara.

5. Glossier-Balm Do Com

This cult favorite doesn’t disappoint and now I know why so many people love it. Apart from being stupid cut to look at, it actually performs! I use it before I start getting ready + by the time I’m ready for lipstick my lips are super soft and make for a better lipstick/lip liner application

6. NYX Lip Liner-Nude Suede Shoes

This is my fave lip-liner/lipstick of all time. The color + staying power is perfection. And lemme tell you the staying power is legit, it definitely passes the smooch test (super long-wearing!). I have tons of liquid lipsticks and this lip-liner is the one I choose over the others EVERY time. Plus they have tons of color options so you can find you’re perfect color.
