Loreal Visible Blur

I received this L’Oreal Foundation to review and to be honest I was a bit afraid. I love their selection of colors to suit every skin tone, but the L’Oreal True Match Foundation has made me break out big time before so I was a little hesitant to try this. I actually stay away from drug store foundation due to the lack of selection or the fear of breakouts.

This baby right here though was amazing!! I actually wore it for a full week before I wrote this review. In the summer, I like to use a powder foundation to keep my oily skin from going out of control. In the winter, I tend to go to a liquid foundation or a bb cream. I hate heavy foundations but I also hate when the foundation wears away before I’m done for the day. Well L’oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation was the perfect medium coverage foundation and it does what it says, it blurred my imperfections to make my skin look great. The key though is that it did not make my skin look like it was caked up with makeup. I just don’t like to see my “face beat” on a normal every day basis.

I used a stippling brush (pictured above) to give it an airbrush finish. I chose the color Honey Beige and it was a perfect match. The first day I tried the foundation I went to work, went to the gym on lunch (of course I showered, taking care of not getting any on my face) and then came back to work. I took a picture when I came home after a super long day and the foundation stayed put!

Loreal Foundation

I love the natural look it gives me! I have quite a bit of redness to my skin and the L’oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation really evened my skin out. If you want to try this for yourself, you can get it at your local drugstore, or on Amazon online. Plus it’s eligible for Prime! $12.99 with free two day shipping? How can you say no to that!

I have a feeling this foundation is going to be with me for a while. Have you tried any of the L’oreal foundations? Which one is your favorite?

Fall is here! Let’s all rejoice by switching out our makeup routine and bringing something new to the vanity. In the past year I’ve finally shaken my fear of lipsticks, specifically anything that’s not on the nude spectrum. It’s been fun to play around with new colors and applying lipstick is sooooo much easier than working on a smokey eye.

Here are my 6 choices for the perfect fall lipstick!

6 Perfect Fall Lip Colors-MTO

Aren’t they pretty and just scream fall? I’ve got a few different brands and price points here so starting from the two lip stains:

First one is Neutrogena Moisturesmooth Color Stick in Rich Raisin. These color sticks are hydrating while still giving you great color.

Right behind that we have Wet n Wild Mega Slicks Balm Stain in 2am Wake Up Call. Did you notice in the disclaimer that I called myself a collector? I have so many lipsticks glosses and stains that unless it’s Limited Edition I’m not purchasing anymore. I absolutely love this color, it is a limited edition from Wet n Wild and I also grabbed a nail polish that was LE. Still not expensive at all for around $2. I love the moisturizing and color pay off of this one too. It’s definitely more grape than the Rich Raisin above but for $2 I love that you’re not committed, in case you want to try a new color. Did I mention it was Limited Edition?  You may want to grab you a piece, I couldn’t even find it on Amazon at this point but Lady and the Vamp is pretty close.

Behind from Left to Right we have:

MAC Satin Lipstick – Rebel : I just returned my empties using my Back to MAC program-in case you don’t know what that is, read this! This is a beauty blogger fave and for good reason. It’s not as dark as say heroine but versatile enough for day or night and even the office! Love this color it’s so pretty! Here’s another angle of it…

MILANI Color Statement Lipstick – Uptown Mauve: I’ve recently found Milani and this is the first lipstick I have purchased. One thing that made me shy away from lipstick was the smell and texture. This lipstick smells lovely and is creamy! I love it! And it’s a beautiful color that stays on through lunch!

Wet N Wild Lipstick Cherry Bomb #918D: Another beauty blogger fave, this dark rich red can really compete with the bigger brands. The color is beautiful, great consistency but I wish it was a little more creamy. It’s a bit drying but for something under $5, you really can’t complain too much.

Last but not least is

NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk: This lipstick looks dark in the tube but once you apply it, it goes on medium coverage. It’s perfect for fall and a great berry tone! Here are swatches for you guys!

6 perfect fall lipsticks

Even in the swatches you can tell how matte Cherry Bomb is compared to the other lipsticks. 2am Call Time is more grape than the others, Cherry Bomb is matte and the darkest, Rebel and Uptown Mauve could be dupes if you don’t want to spend the $16 on lipstick.

For ease of purchase because I know you want to buy at least one, I have included all links to buy. But for those of you who like to see your makeup up close and personal before purchasing, you can find everything but MAC at your local drugstore or Ulta. MAC of course is sold exclusively at the MAC Counter or online.

Which of these six fall lipsticks were your favorite? Do you have any to add to the list?

Too faced Cat Eyes comes in the cutest packaging! I’m such a sucker for packaging. Fortunately the product itself doesn’t disappoint. I love the wet/dry option of the eyeliner. Although it’s separated by classic day and night options, you can easily mix and match the colors to get a custom look.

I preferred the wet look since it had more of a color payoff than when it was dry. But the shadows were all long lasting and didn’t crease. Something I was surprised about since usually light colors like that don’t show up on my skin tone.

IMG_1971.JPG

The brush you see here is the brush I used to get my line on straight. For a wet look I wet the brush prior to applying the liner. Some of you may argue that this is a brow brush and you would be correct. I like the slant of the brush and prefer to use it as a liner.

Both shadow and liner stayed put all day and I’ve been using this Too Faced palette non stop since I’ve gotten it! This palette is $36 on the Too Faced website. It also comes with A little booklet full of tips which would be great for those of you just getting started with eyeshadow or makeup in general

Louboutin’s have been seen on the feet of every fashionable celebrity for years! This trendsetting line has always made a mark in women’s footwear by being current trendy and of the moment. And now the brand has realized that not all nude shoe has been created equal. Usually the nude shoes you see are tailored for the lighter skinned mamas. I end up going for the tan shoe because that’s my nude.

Louboutin has reinvented the term nude shoe by creating a shade for every skin complexion. Because my nude and your nude and her nude would be three very different colors.

They come in five shades and retail for $625 so if you can afford these purchase quick as a lot of them are sold out. Buget Fashionistas don’t cry too much! Usually budget brands always follow the expensive brands so I’m hoping it doesn’t take them that long to follow suit. I would love a pair of nude shoes!!

But if you are considering the purchase just think of it as an investment that could last you forever. Also think of the price per wear. They may end up being the best investment you make! So if you’re going to buy yourself some can you also buy me a pair? I’m a 7.5 thanks! ;)

If you are anything like me, you love fashion and you know a little bit about football. Enough to know that you should wear some type of jersey if you get invited to a football game or super bowl party but how do you style it?

geno smith

I created my perfect game day outfit using one of Fanatics’ NFL Jerseys.  Now, I live in New York and I asked my hubby he’s a Jets fan. No lie, I have one football jersey to my name and it’s a Greenbay jersey I found that is pink and white and I could wear to work Smile. So I went to Fanatics and I found some great women’s jersey’s and here’s how to accessorize it!

football wear

To be honest, this could be worn with any your favorite team jerseys. The tan peep toe booties are super cute and a great stacked heel is comfy but still stylish. Boyfriend jeans would be great instead of the usual skinnies and a bit more relaxed. Add to that some simple accessories (earrings, ring and bracelet) and you are done! Top it off with a great bright lip which has been my absolute favorite lately and you are perfect without trying too hard! A bright lip can brighten up your entire face and this raspberry shade is perfect for fall.

How do you style your jerseys? Check out another post I did as well about what to wear to a football game for more ideas!

I’ve joined in with the writers of Dateless in Dallas and Love Sujeiry to share our favorite links! This week’s first and favorite links are below! Check them out to read the full articles and go ahead and follow them as well for hilarious dating advice and lifestyle tips.

Love Sujeiry has been called the Latina Carrie Bradshaw and her hilarious writing doesn’t disappoint. Her post 5 Annoying Things That Occur When Getting Ready for a Date are hilarious!

When women go on a date, getting ready is half the battle.

I’m in the tub, shaving my legs at full speed and trying not to cut my delicate skin. (It’s as sensitive as a baby’s bottom.) When I feel a trickle of water drop from the shower head and onto my freshly straightened hair. This is my worst nightmare. I have a date. I’m running late. Now I have to blow out my roots before they turn on me and my Dominican tresses look something like this:

monica_humidity

Goodness I feel like this happens to me every time I’m getting ready to go out! And then I’m all like f it I’m not going!! To read the rest of this post check out LoveSujeiry!

You know we’ve all been there…staring at the phone until he texts back. But why isn’t he texting you back?! Dateless in Dallas keeps  you from pulling your hair out with these tips:

There are times when you hear from someone you like on a regular basis yet after awhile you start noticing that guy you like is not texting you as frequent or as quickly as he used to. It all depends on numerous factors like if he’s out of town working or has been hospitalized and didn’t tell you, but let’s just say that things are normal and you can’t comprehend why he is now incognito, or MIA.
Sometimes we start jumping into conclusions and start to think back on something we ourselves might have done to make him not want to text back. You can literally drive yourself up the wall trying to remember back to situations where you may have turned him off hence why he’s not texting. It could very well be something you did, but I like to think that nine times out of ten it is something that he alone has done and it has nothing to do with you.

Don’t text him back! Instead, head over to Dateless n Dallas to read the rest of this great post!

School just started last week and I haven’t been able to catch up to share all the summer fun we’ve had! Although we didn’t take an actual vacation (we haven’t taken one since the baby was born) we had lots of fun exploring new areas around our town.

We visited one of the spray parks this summer although someone wasn’t too fond of it.

Instead he wanted to try his hand going up the slide.

summer fun2

We also travelled to what it seemed like the middle of nowhere and had a blast feeding animals in an enclosed park. We got on a trolley and fed zebras, goats, llamas, elk and other animals I can’t even remember now. Hidden Valley Animal Adventure was a great spot and we also had lunch there. We didn’t get to see the smaller petting zoo as it was raining and we were all exhausted.

summer fun3

And let’s not forget the black swans! First time I’ve ever seen one! I’m such a city girl!

Summer fun 4

Between trips to Darien Lake and Seabreeze as well as local carnivals, our summer was non stop. Even after football started! Although we didn’t take an official vacation, we had a blast and made some great memories. One of my most favorite summers yet! And I actually had a chance to get a tattoo done. Not the one that I wanted (the big Taino headdress) just because it would have been too big, but I ended up with a feather tattoo in the style that would have been on the headdress right on my collarbone. I love it and it’s colorful!

Plus the location that is in is perfect for work as I can hide it under most of my shirts!

summer fun5

I obsessed over the placement of this tattoo along with the type of feather that I wanted. I think this freehand drawing with the abstract paint drops around it is perfect! My first tattoo I got when I was 18 and just picked a random one at the place and put it in an even more random location. So I had to make sure that this one was perfect because obviously I’m stuck with it forever!

How was your summer?

fave fall finds

I love fall for the fall fashion. And there’s so much to look forward to in the next few weeks. Here’s my seven faves.

1. Kimonos are everything. And they are back in a major way. I want that one! I have one I purchased years ago that I wear constantly, but it’s nice to know it’s back on trend.

2. Great hairstyle to rock when your hair gets dry and frizzy when the weather changes. And the bobby pins placement are so cute. Also great to hide second third or fourth day hair!

3.  A nice black structured bag can take you through the entire season while keeping you fashionable!

4. The 90’s are back in the form of plaid. I’m not sure how I feel about this, but I know this portofino from Express makes me feel better about it.

5. Cranberry lipstick for less than $10? Yes please! I was all about bright lips all spring and summer, and now I can’t wait to try deep fuchsia and cranberry shades. I need to head on to Ulta for my fix!

6. What’s cooler than a motorcycle jacket for the fall? Especially in this color. I want this!

7. These pants are two trends in one. The ankle pant in plaid is a modern version of the 90’s trend. Definitely wearable!

What are you most looking forward to wear in the fall? Is there any fall fashion items you need to grab for your closet?

Full LineUp

Just in time for #NYFW, Dove brings you some style tips courtesy of Erin Walsh. Now that summer is behind us and we are embracing the upcoming fall (although it was record high here in Western NY today whoa!!) we are ready to throw on our fall fashions including sweaters and boots! But we shouldn’t neglect our underarms even though they might be covered up more than usual. I tend to layer quite a bit in the winter so I can have options of putting something on and taking something off.

On of my favorite tips from Erin is:

An all-white look or mixed neutrals looks great on everyone. Every woman should own a nice white blouse. It’s a piece that will never go out of style, and also make you look put together.

White is also always in season! Don’t detract from your outfit with pit problems though. Don’t lie, we’ve all been there! Dove Advanced Care Deodorant with NutriumMoisture keeps you dry and odor-free for a long-lasting 48 hours. Even in the dry and sometimes icky fall weather. And our skin tends to get super dry from the dry air and the heating vents keeping us warm. But don’t you worry! Dove Advanced Care Deodorant is clinically proven to reduce irritation from shaving and provides softer, smoother skin in just three days. It will help you battle that dry itchy and flakey fall skin!

I got the opportunity to try out Dove Advanced Care and I loved the scent as well as how moisturizing it was! Underarm skin is sensitive and the constant shaving that we need to do doesn’t help our situations at all! It did help solve some of my skin care problems and it’s one less thing I don’t have to worry about! It’s not like it’s an extra step, we all need some deodorant in the morning. Dove helps you stay fresh while keeping your skin looking great too!!

Have you tried Dove Advanced Care? What did you think of it? There’s a full lineup of scents, I’m sure you will find one to fall in love with!
