Peppermint Cappuccino

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Hey Beauties! 

If you are a coffee lover just as I am, than your going to love this peppermint cappuccino. Now, one trick that I am sure many people know about is transforming your regular latte, cappuccinos or mocha's into a delicious peppermint drink by just adding a candy cane. First, I use half almond milk and half of 2%  milk and heat it up on the stove. Two, I add either concentrated espresso or if I am  in a rush, a spoon of Nescafe.   Three, I do not add any sugar I actually add either Caramel syrup or a flavored creamer and when the drink is hot, I pour it into a milk frother. Four, I add add a candy cane and stir it than the drink it ready. I promise this drink will not disappoint because it is easy and tastes really good. I am obsessed!!

NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffert Review

Hello Ladies! 
I can honestly say that the holiday sets released this year were on point! NARS came out with one of the best sets, the first set that was a bang for the buck is the virtual domination cheek palette and I think that palette is just a stunner therefore I am going to leave a review for that set in a different blog post.
This set shown above is the called digital world lip pencil coffert and at first I was skeptical about the sizes (I feel like they were depicted bigger) since I bought it online from Sephora during the VIB sale but when I tried on the colors, one word WOW. There are two different types of formulas. There are two 0.06 ounces lip pencils in velvet matte, the colors are Passionate(red, last one to the left) and New Iberico(coral, forth one to the left).  The last three are all 0.06 ounces satin lip pencils. The Yu is a bright pink and is the first one to the left, it is a stunner and honestly I think that color is going to be prefect for spring when I want a pop of color for the season. Torres Del Paine (second to the left) is a peachy coral color that is a perfect everyday color if you want something other than nude or pink on the lips. The last lip pencil is Decanso (third to the left), it is hands down going to be my everyday color. I absolutely love this color because when I go to work or classes I don't want to always wear bright colors therefore this color is the perfect shade of nude for me. I know for a fact when that color runs out I am going to go straight to Sephora and repurchase it right away. Also since I was able to get 20 dollars off this item during the VIB sale I could say that I really did got my money's worth out of it. I thought people were just jumping on the hype bandwagon with the NARS lip pencils but after trying them out, they are just amazing!

PS: One NARS lip pencil costs around 25 dollars and this set costs 49 dollars on Sephora therefore if you want to try 5 different colors instead of committing 25 dollars to one color I would definitely buy this before it gets sold out!

No Fuss Lip gloss

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Hello Ladies! 
I am really excited to share with you guys a pretty awesome lip product. Two days ago, I received my first Walmart $5 winter beauty box. It had three products: lip gloss, moisturizer, face wipes and two sample packets of shampoo and conditioner. I was not to impressed with the box, however, it was only $5 and I should not have had high expectations. I am not a lip gloss gal and did not think much of cover girl product until I tried it. I immediately  noticed that it did not act like your traditional lip gloss. The name is coral and the color is pink/coral/with gold shimmer that is undetectable when applied to the lips. This lip gloss is very moisturizing, not sticky, natural looking and the formula is outstanding. This product has made its place in my everyday purse. Also,  the other day I found this lip gloss for $8.00 at the Ulta store. Instantly, I was very happy with may Walmart beauty box because I only paid $5 for it.
