Little haul

So I made a trip to Wal-Mart today. I am trying to spend less, because I realized I have so many stuff and I should try to use up some that I already own. But for a shopaholic like me, it's really hard to do considering there's so many things I want. Anyways, here is my little haul. Hope you enjoy!

NYLON magazine: I LOVE magazines! NYLON is on of my favorite, it's such an original magazine. I lovelovelove it. I have so many magazines to read right now, but I thought that this issue seem really interesting!

SPAresource Pro-Series Stipple Brush: I really wanted a stipple brush for the longest time. I have a huge Coastal Scents kit, but I don't want too much brushes because I want to buy some Sigma brushes sometime soon.

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray: I need a wave spray and I tought this one looked really good. I have some people rave about it on youtube, so I'm excited to use it!

Evian Facial Spray: I've been eyeing it this product for a while. It was 14.97 on special for 5.00, I was so happy. I used it earlier, and I love it so much! I think I might go buy some more before they run out of the shelf. Such an amazing product.

My wishlist

1) Urban Decay Naked 2 palette: I have the first one and I love it. But I would really like the second one because of its cooler shades, perfect for winter.

2) Urban Decay Primer Potion: I've used up mine so I need a new one.

3) Stila In the light palette: It is such a beautiful palette. The colors are beautiful and I've been wanting to try the shade 'kitten' for the longest time.

4) Soap & Glory Hand Food: I've heard so many good things about the brand Soap & Glory. Specially their Hand Food cream. I own nothing from them and I think it's time that I dive in.

5) Too faced smokey eye palette Sorry for writing STILA* on the picture but its actually by Too faced. I've been eyeing this palette for quite a while. I think it's great because I have nothing quite like it. It's something I plan on buying sometime soon.

6) Benefit They're real mascara: I've heard so many great thing about that mascara. I really want to try it.

7) Benefit Hoola bronzer: I really want to try more Benefit products. This bronzer looks great. I feel like it's the perfect bronzy color.

Products I love using everyday

Hi beauties! Today I felt like showing some of my favorites everyday makeup. I have not found a routine that I stick to, and I change my use of product, because I don't like making my other product lonely! ;) Ha, just kidding.

E.L.F. Makeup Mist & Set- Or I like to call it: a hairspray for the face. Perfect for oily skin and long nights out.

Tarte Clean State Flawless 12hr brightening primer- A primer is essential if you want your make up to stay on all-day. (Who doesn't?)

Revlon Colorstay Foundation- Great foundation for flawless look and lightweight feel.

NYX Concealer in a jar- Perfect for imperfection.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder- If you have shine on your face, this will matify your face.

Annabelle Blushon #18- Perfect color for this season!

Sephora Silk Blush Bronzer Duo, Argentinean Duo- This come with a blush, but I'm talking about bronzer. Bronzer will make you look like you've been tanning in this cold winter.

Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer- Put this on your cheekbones and you'll look like a superstar!

NARS Turkish Delight- This gloss is famous because of Kim Kardashian. It is perfect combined with the next lipstick, that she also uses with Turkish Delight.

MAC Angel- Perfect Kim K combo. This has become her signature look. It's such a perfect color and with the gloss, it's a delight.

Urban Decay Primer Potion- I'm sure you've all seen this primer before. You need a primer if you don't want your eyeshadow to crease throughout the day. Trust me.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara- If I could only wear one thing (apart from face product) - mascara would be it! It's a must. Even people who doesn't wear alot of make up uses mascara because it just opens up your eyes and makes a difference.

Maybelline Line Stiletto- Eyeliner is a must also.

Milani Brow fix brow kit- If you don't already use a brow powder, you really should because it frames your face like nothing else.

Color tattoo in Barely Beige by Maybelline- Perfect for a base or alone.

Wet n' wild cream shadow pencil- This is perfect for inner eyes, it will brighten up your whole face like nothing else would.

Urban Decay Naked Palette- This palette is perfection. Perfect for everyday use. I love using eyeshadow everyday because it's one of the most creative part of makeup.

What do you like to use everyday? XO

REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked Palette

Hi beauties! Today I'm doing my first review on the famous: Naked Palette by Urban Decay. This palette is one of most known in the beauty world.
Every has seen the famous dark brown velvety casing with the gold capitals. So classy. But the packaging can get a bit dirty, but it really does seem worst on the picture, trust me! It really doesn't look like that in real life, so I don't mind the beautiful velvet.
I've had this palette for quite a while now. I bought it when I went to New York, at the Sephora in Time Square (it was the first time I bought something at Sephora... cause we didn't use to have on close to where I live!). As you can see I've used it quite a bit, I've hit pan on three eyeshadows (Sin, Naked, Half Baked). It's such a nice palette, you can do a variety of looks with it from: neutral day-to-day look to dark smokey eye to summery bronzy looks.

It's a must-have for every makeup lover out there! Also, if you're a beginner looking for a nice palette at Sephora, I would say this is a winner. You won't regret it and you'll end up using it everyday. :)

What is your favorite eyeshadow from the UD Naked Palette?

Winterlicious tag

Christmas is just around the corner so I believe that this would be fun to do: Winterlicious tag.

1) Favorite Winter Nail Polish?

Vixen by Revlon, this was hard to choose but you can't go wrong with red nailpolish during the holidays/winter.

2) Favorite Winter lip product?

I would have to say my Korres lip butter that I bought a few weeks ago. They add a nice touch of color, super moisturizing and they all have a nice smell.

3) Most worn Winter clothing piece?

My coat I would say.

4) Most worn Winter accessory?

Infinity scarfs, I just can't stop wearing them!

5) Favorite winter scent/candle?

Twisted peppermint from Bath & Body Works. It's such a great smell, not just for the holidays, but for the winter as well.

6) Favorite Winter beverage?

Hot chocolate, holiday drinks from Starbucks and Tim Hortons.

7) All time favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?

I have ALOT of favorites, but I think I will say: Grinch and Elf.

8) Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?

French is my first language, so I have alot of french favorite Christmas song. I also lovelovelove the english version equally. I also like Christmas song by popular singers like Taylor Swift and Coldplay. Ahhh, I just can't choose. There's so much to choose from and so many of them are my favorites. I'm sorry.

9) Favorite Holiday food/treat?

Food: I basicly love all the Christmas food, I can't choose. Treat: I also love them all, but you can't go wrong with candy canes.

10) What is your favorite Christmas Decoration this year?

I love Christmas decoration. But Christmas lights are so pretty. So I guess I will choose that.

11) What's at the top of your Christmas list?


12) What are your plans for the holidays this year?

Usually our tradition, we open our family gift when we wake up on the 24th, then we use our gift and stuff. Then we cook, get ready, then go to my grandma for supper. We open our gift there. Then we stay there late. Then on 25th we go to our aunt and uncle, for dinner. Open some gifts.

Perfect red lips for the holidays

This Super Lustrous Lipstick from Revlon in the shade Fire & Ice is what I would call a perfect holiday lips. It's such a vibrant and classic red. You can't go wrong with it.
Bordeaux by Rimmel London is a bordeaux color (like the name said it!), if you would like more of a dark look but still have the holiday glamour. This is the one for you.
If you would prefer something more subtle and more easy to work with. This is a great red lipgloss! Essence XXXL shine lipgloss in the shade True Love is super pigmented and super easy to apply. I would say its a must-have for year-round.
Taylor Swift fan? Search no more, in an interview she said that this lipstick is her go to signature red. It's the Covergirl lipstick in Hot. I always wondered what red lipstick Taylor Swift had as her signature look, and now the secret is out!!
Revlon lip butter in Red Velvet, this is a really good option if you're not used to wear dark lips. Because you can sheer it out; like any other Revlon lip butter. It's a darker red but less darker than Bordeaux by Rimmel.
Baby lips by Maybelline are great for people who are only starting to wear lipstick, especially red lips, this is why Cherry Me, is a great color! If you want something not too dramatic for the holidays, but still have a nice touch of color this is the one for you!
Here are some swatches of them all:

Haul: From Christmas shopping to gifts to myself

I have alot of haul lately. Mainly because, 1. I have not been shopping for the past months, 2. When shopping for Christmas for other people, and you see things you've wanted all you can do is buy them and call tell "Gifts to myself". Also, I need more ideas of what kind of blog post to write, since I'm new at this. If you ever want to see reviews on certain product or what-so-ever, let me know!
This an imitation of the J. Crew bubble necklace, I bought at Urban Planet for the cost of 7$. What a deal. It's a statement necklace, a pretty colour: pinkish coral. Not sure how to style it, but when I do I'll try and write an article on it.
I was excited for essies new collection, a magnetic one: a first for essie! I have never tried magnetic polishes before, but this one was original, a snake print. As I said I tried it for this first today, and I had really hard time trying to figure it out: my magnet got all messy with polish (I hope I can fix it!) If you don't mess it up like me, I would say it works fine and give a pretty design. I will try to fix it, if I can't then the color itself is pretty, it's a beautiful metalic red in the shade sssssexy.
I've been wanting to try this product for a while. After hearing so many beauty gurus on youtube raved about it. I've tried it twice and I think I noticed a small difference I would say, so that's a plus! But I can't confirm everything right now, maybe I'll do a review later on.
I saw this purse on the front display at Spring, and I knew I had to get it. For the price of 40$, I think it's really a good-sized purse, alot of space. My only fear is that the studded details looks like they could easily fall out. I hope not.

Well, this is it for my haul, I have much more ideas for article. All I need is time. Hope you all had a wonderful day!! c xoxo

Bath & Body Works: Vanilla Beam Noel

I've had this in my B&BW haul! And I think this WONDERFUL smell needs its own review. I don't even remember the last time a smell had me in such a good mood. It is so conforting; and like, cozy and warm(ish). It's just perfect. I am love with this shower gel and I surely will repurchase more of that bad boy.

On another trip to the mall, I needed to stop at B&BW, and as my obsession with this smell grew stronger, it only felt right to pick up this body spray.

Two words: get it.
It will change your life. I basicly want everything to smell like Vanilla Beam Noel, and I surely plan on stocking on that wonderful smell before they go out of stock!!

What's your favorite B&BW holiday products?
C xoxo

Essie: Sew Psyched

I've been wanting this nail polish for over a year now. I finally picked it up and I do not regret. Essie Sew Psyched is very pigmented, I could say that one coat and you're good to go! The color is simply beautiful, especially for this time of the year. It did not chip fast (minus the picture above; it was taken 3 days without applying some back). If you love army green, I consider this the perfect one.

I love essie polishes although they do take a long time to dry up, they don't chip very easily and have a great color selection.

I really need to get my hand on essie Christmas collection! Did you pick some up yet? Which one?

Thank you for reading xo
OH, and btw, for anyone who might ask, I got my bow ring at ALDO ACCESSORIES, it was about 12$ (I think) it came with a gold and charcoal/dark gray/black. They are beautiful!
