Whenever I order things online and they get without trouble to my hotel, no troublesome paperwork in the middle, it makes me wish my country was the same. I admire you all who are patient enough to do all the paperwork and even go to customs to retrieve your things. I don't have the time to get my own because of work and it's quite dangerous for me to risk those things not getting directly home + the limit in $. That's why I always try to do my online shopping when I'm overseas and send those packages to my hotel. I actually did that a couple weeks ago and ordered make up from Sephora.


Cuando pido cosas por internet y llegan sin problemas a mi hotel, sin ningún tipo de papeleo complicado de por medio, me hace desear que en mi país fuera igual. Las admiro a muchas de ustedes que esperan o van a aduanas con toda la paciencia del mundo a buscar sus paquetes, de por sí yo no tengo tiempo de tomarme el trabajo de ir (por el laburo), así que me es difícil decidir correr ese riesgo de que no llegue a casa + el límite de compra. Por eso siempre trato de hacer mi shopping online cuando voy a viajar y mandarme esas cosas al hotel. De hecho, hice eso hace un par de semanas comprando maquillaje en la web de Sephora.

I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me the order in this cute box with a magnetized lid (don't we women love these kind of things... :P). To be honest, I do remember choosing a wrapping, but I thought it was just paper and not a box, so a big thumbs up for Sephora for this lovely detail!

Tuve la grata sorpresa de que me enviaron el pedido en una cajita imantada super simpática (cómo nos gustan a las mujeres todas estas b*ludeces... :P). La verdad recuerdo haber pedido que venga envuelto, pero pensé que era tipo papel y no una cajita, así que dedito para arriba para Sephora por este detalle.

Urban Decay

I've been on the lookout for blue and black lipstick colors for a couple months now, and given that it's very hard to find these in the local market, I decided to try my luck with some from two of my favorite make up brands: one of them is Urban Decay.

Both of the lipsticks I got are from their line Vice, which offers lots of finishes: Mega Matte (super-intense matte), Comfort Matte (creamiest matte), Cream (their original creamy), Metallized (cream with a high level of pearl), Sheer (a punch of color with a sheer, shiny finish) and Sheer Shimmer (lightly transparent finish with floating pearl and a smooth texture). They also say that "the pigment load is insane and that just one swipe provides an unbelieveable laydown of color" — I'd say it's two swipes for me; the color doesn't look as pretty with just one swipe in my opinion.

For the blue, I got the shade Heroine, which is a comfort matte. It's not as drying as I thought it'd be! The "comfort" part of the name definitely makes it justice ;) The color is just a beautiful, plain royal blue without glitter, I adore it! It was exactly what I was looking for (though I must admit I'd love a navy blue). It lasts for a very long time too: I only had to retouch after havig lunch, obviously.

In an effort to become more comfortable with nude lipsticks, I bought the shade Unicorn, comfort matte as well (totally not sold by the name huh LOL). To be honest I feel it super creamy, which is a wonderful thing to my lips, and also the color is not as nude as I thought. It does give a certain color to my lips, which I'm thankful for. Never going to try the same color as the rest of my skin, I swear it'd look terrible on me.

He estado buscando labiales azul y negro hace ya varios meses, y como me costó mucho encontrar algo que me gustara en el mercado local, decidí probar suerte con algunos de dos de mis marcas de maquillaje favoritas: una de ellas es Urban Decay.

Ambos labiales son de su línea Vice, que ofrece un montón de acabados: Mega Matte (mate super intenso), Confort Matte (el mate más cremoso), Cream (el cremoso original de la marca), Metallized (cremoso con un alto nivel de destellos), Sheer (color intenso más un acabado brilloso), y Sheer Shimmer (algo transparente con un acabado perlado). También dicen en su página que "el pigmento que usan es increible y que con solo una pasada provee de una cobertura excelente" — yo diría que en dos pasadas; el color no se ve tan bonito si dejamos solo una, en mi opinión.

En cuanto al azul, compré el tono Heroine, uno de sus confort matte. No reseca tanto como pense que iba a resecar. Definitivamente estuvieropn bien en ponerle "confort" al nombre de la fórmula ;) El color es un hermoso azul realeza sin ningún tipo de glitter, ¡lo adoro! Era exactamente lo que estaba buscando (aunque todavía me quedo las ganas de un azul marino). Su duración es altísima, aunque tuve que retocar después de almorzar obviamente.

Kat Von D


A make up order at Sephora is never complete without a Kat Von D lipstick in my cart :P Back when I was reading and watching YouTube reviews of blue lipsticks, I wasn't exactly sure if Urban Decay's would turn out the way I wanted to, so I decided to get Kat Von D's blue which is the shade Poe in their Studded Kiss line. I had my doubts with this one, but damn it's SO GORGEOUS!!! Can you see the little, pink sparkles? It lasts as long as matte lipsticks do, around 5 hours without retouching considering I had lunch and then I had to re-apply.

The next color is the shade Slayer which is the simple, matte black shade that the Studded Kiss line offers. I'm a bit skeptical to say something about this color, because I've got to be honest and tell you I haven't exactly worn it out yet. I don't like using lip liners but I feel like this shade needs it, or maybe it's my impression that I'll f*ck it up as soon as I go out. I'm scared, I'll admit it :P I promise I'll wear it this weekend and modify this post as soon as I'm done testing it.

Last shade I got is called La Femme. It's a beautiful, pinkish coral, perfect for every day wear! I wore it all morning and by the time I was done with lunch I could have probably left it as it was (but then again I had to brush my teeth and I hate doing that with lipstick on LOL).

Un pedido de Sephora no está completo sin un labial de Kat Von D en mi carrito :P Cuando estaba en la búsqueda de estos labiales azules por internet, no estaba segura si el de Urban Decay iba a satisfacer mis necesidades, así que por las dudas compré también este otro, el tono Poe de su línea Studded Kiss. Tenía mis dudas por el tema del glitter, ¡¡¡pero ME ENCANTA!!! ¿Ven esos pequeños destellos rosados? Son hermosos. El labial dura lo que suelen durar todos los mate, más o menos 5 horas intacto retocando solamente luego de comer.

El próximo color es Slayer, el negro mate de la línea. La verdad no se si estoy en condiciones de hablar mucho de este color porque todavía no lo he usado para salir. No suelo usar delineadores para labios, pero siento que este color en particular lo necesito o la voy a terminar cag*ndo. Tengo miedo, lo admito :P Promero usarlo pronto para modificar este post y dar más información al respecto.

El último tono que compré se llama La Femme. Es un rosa-coral muy bonito, perfecto para usar todos los días. Lo usé toda la mañana y para cuando habia terminado de almorzar, ¡seguía ahí! Obvio que lo retoqué, pero ese es un tic mío que siempre que termino de comer, me saco el labial del todo y lo vuelvo a aplicar :P

Benefit


I'm a sucker for cute packaging and I've always loved Benefit for it, though I had never tried any of their products. You see, I'm more of a lipstick gal; I don't go trying different mascaras, blushes, etc. I just stick to what works for me and I get married to it for life. But I had been hearing lots of good things about this mascara on social media, so I thought why not? And I'm damn glad I did. The Roller Lash mascara is AMAZING! In the next shot, I did not curl my lashes because I wanted if it gave me a good curl, and the result was this:

Me pueden los packagings adorables y siempre me gustó Benefit, aunque nunca había probado ninguno de sus productos. Soy más del palo de los labiales, por lo que no suelo ir probando diferentes máscaras de pestañas, rubores, etc. Me caso con uno que me vaya bien y listo. Pero había escuchado maravillas de esta máscara, así que dije ¿por qué no? Y dios, estoy tan agradecida de haberle dado la oportunidad. La máscara de pestañas Roller Lash es ¡INCREIBLE! En la próximna foto, NO me rizé las pestañas porque quería saber qué tanto me las iba a rizar la máscara por sí sola, y este fue el resultado:

Left: with Roller Lash mascara applied (didn't use a lash curler). Right: my regular lashes, no product on.
Izquierda: con la máscara Roller Lash (sin usar rizador). Derecha: con mis pestañas sin ningún tipo de producto.

A super huge curl where the curler was NOT involved. WHAAAAAAAT??!! And the mascara held the curl for the entire day and never fell. WHAT AGAAAAAIINNNN??!! The product bazinga-ed me and yes, I just Sheldon-ed it, so whaaat :P I'm still not exactly sure how I should judge it though: is it waterproof... or not? It does seem to be according to the description on the website, but it's so damn easy to remove it almost feels like a dream. Plus, when you first look at the wand you just snort and go like "nah, this is not gonna work". Guess I just had to swallow my own words :P "Don't ever judge a book by it's cover", was it?

Un super rizo SIN usar rizador de pestañas. ¡¿QUÉEEEEE?! Y la máscara me sostuvo el rizo durante todo el día y jamás se cayó. ¡¡¡¿¿¿QUÉEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE???!!! El producto me recontra baginga-ed y si, me Sheldonizé, y quéeee :P Todavía no se cómo catalogarla: es waterproof... ¿o no? Parece serlo acorde a la descripción del producto en la página., pero es tan fácil de remover que parece mentira. Además, ni bien mirás el pincelito no le das ni ddos mangos, pero parece que esta vez me tengo que tragar mis propias palabras :P "No juzgues a un libro por su tapa", ¿era así no?

  1. I love that Sephora packaging! I had no idea that you could get a cute little magnetized box. Those shades are gorgeous, but I'm here with you about unicorn. It def doesn't live up to its name lol. UD's Vice line has the most comfortable mattes I've ever worn! I'm glad you're liking them too.

    I never would've guessed that anyone could get that much curling action out of that mascara. I've seen it before, but I've yet to try it. Maybe I'll add it to my list of products to try when my current mascara runs out.

    1. Yeah, I definitely won't be using Unicorn much. The formula is so weird o_o.

      The Roller Lash is definitely magical, I love it *-*.
