Please watch my haul video:

Hey everyone, I went shopping a while back and wanted to show you guys what I got.

1.    Elf Regular and Waterproof Mascara Duo $.99 (Because I lost my previous one) I love this mascara and recommend it to anyone especially if you’re new to them and don’t want to spend too much. Here’s a link to my review of this mascara:

2.    Elf liquid foundation in Buff $6.00 I ran out of my Nutrogena one and decided to give this one a try, I will review it soon and let you know how it works out.

3.    Eco Tools 6 piece bamboo brush set $9.99 (This was on sale for a limited time at Walgreens) I love this brand, so when I saw it was on sale I tried to resist. The fourth time I saw it I bought it though. Review coming soon!


4.    Magnetic force By Color Club $3.95 (This was on sale at Hot Topic) I really wanted to love this but it chips like crazy! I don’t recommend this brand of magnetic nail polish at all!


5.    Rue21 Basic T-shirts $4.00 (They were originally $10.99!) I really like these so far but the black one with stripes and the white one with stripes are a bit see through, I can just where a tank under though.

Have you guys tried any of these products before? Thank you for reading!

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo

When I started hearing about dry shampoos I was so excited but got disappointed with the first one I purchased. (I will put the link to this review at the bottom) Because of this I think I waited for a while before buying another one. I was not disappointed this time!

Cuando empeze oyendo sober dry shampoos estaba muy entusiasmada pero el primero que compre me decepciono.  (Pondre un link a bajo para  la crítica del producto  anterior) Por esta razon creo que estaba nerviosa de comprar otro, pero esta vez no fui decepcionada.

The Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo has okay packaging, I don’t love it but it does it’s job, it’s grey and looks like a hairspray bottle. I love the smell of it; it’s sweet and citrusy and lasts in my hair for a long time. People have complemented the smell of my hair saying it smells like candy. The spray works really well to tame the oils at the roots. My hair is super oily that I usually have to wash my hair every day but I’m able to go 3 days with out washing my hair with this shampoo! I love this dry shampoo and would recommend it. Cost: $3.29

El Suave Professionals Dry Shampo tiene embalaje normal, no me encanta. Se mira como una botella de laca de pelo gris.  Pero si tiene muy buena fragancia, es dulce con cítrico. Cuando uso este producto gente me dicen que mi pelo tiene  el olor de dulce. Este producto me ha encantado no solo tiene buena fragancia si no al usarlo puedo ir sin lavar mi pello por 3 días, una cosa que fue imposible antes porque mi pello es tan grasoso. Antes tenía que lavar lo todo los días. Recomiendo este champú a todos especialmente si tiene pelo muy grasoso como yo. Costo: $3.29


Thank you so much for reading! Please leave a comment.

What do I have in common with Sailor Moon?!

¿Que tengo en común con Sailor Moon?

A pink compact! ¡Un espejo compacto rosita!


I just wanted to share with you all, the cute accessory I picked up at Forever 21 recently. I was looking for a new compact mirror; I had in mind something simple and black. Then I saw this compact and it reminded me so much of the one Sailor Moon carries around in the anime, I was a big fan as a kid and bought it for the childhood memories. (Like jumping around in the living room pretending to be her!) Have you ever bought something simply for memories it brought back to you? Cost:~$2.00


Solo quiera compartir con ustedes un accesorio que compre en Forever 21. Estaba buscando un espejito negro y simple pero después me encontré este. Yo era un gran fan de Sailor Moon como niña y este compacto me trajo muchas memorias buenas. (¡Como brincando en la sala pretendiendo ser ella!) Entonces lo compre, ¿ustedes han comprado algo solo por las memorias que les trae? Costo:~$2.00


Thank you for reading! Please comment and I will write back. If you follow me leave a link to your blog and I will follow you back! Here is the Saillor Moon opening song.


¡Gracias por leer! Por favor dejen un comentario y les escribiré patras. Si me siguen dejen un link a su blog para poder seguirlas patras. Aquí está la entrada de la serie de Sailor Moon.

Elf Regular & Waterproof Mascara Duo

Ok, so I have had a love hate relationship with mascaras. This is because they always seem to rub onto my eye lids or I they irritate my eyes and I end up smearing it/ making it flake around my bottom lashes. Another problem I have with them is that they just don’t keep my lashes curled. Having run out of my Covergirl Lash Blast (the orange one which I have had so long I don’t remember when I bought it) I didn’t want to spend too much money if I would only use it once in a while or wouldn’t like it. I bought the Elf Regular & waterproof Mascara Duo recently and have been using it every day!


Les digo ahora que he tenido una relación de amor y odio con mascaras. Esto se debe a que no duran mucho en mis pestañas y siempre irritan mis ojos. Otro problema que tengo es que no mantienen el curl. Entonces cuando se me cabo mi Covergirl Lash Blast (el que es anaranjado y no recuerdo cuando lo compre) no quería gastar mucho dinero por un producto que no me gustara o solo usaría en ocasiones especiales. Por esto compre el Elf Regular & Waterproof Mascara Duo y lo he estado usando todo los días!


The tube is clearly labeled what side is which and I really like the brush, which is the same on both sides, it is nice medium size. The bristles on the brush are spiral and really help get every lash. As for ware time, I put the regular on my top lashes and the waterproof on my bottom lashes at 11am and it stayed put all day, even through work! When I got home around 10pm it was still on and hadn’t smudged at all! (That’s 12 hrs) It has becoming an everyday makeup product for me and I would totally recommend it. Cost: $0.99


El tubo tiene etiqueta que claramente dice cual lado es regular/waterproof y me gusta mucho el cepillo que es igual en los dos lados. El cepillo es spiral y ayuda a agarra cada pestana. También dura mucho en mis ojos. Me lo puse a las 11am y a las 10pm todavía se miraba bien. (12 oras) Ahora este producto se ha convertido en uno que uso todos los días. Costo:  $0.99


Thank you for reading! And please leave a comment, I will write back.

This is a tag that has been going around and I thought I would try even though I had my concerns.

I have been afraid on what my total everyday beauty products would add up to but here it goes…

Este es un tag que todos están asiendo y decidí hacer lo aun que tenia preocupaciones. Lo que tienes que hacer es sumar el costo de todos los productos que usas en tu cara en el día diario para ver cuánto vale tu cara. Tenía miedo en que sería el total pero he hecho el tag todos modos.


             Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 85 $9.49

L’OREAL Magic Perfecting Base Primer $12.95

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation $12.49

            Almay Clear Complexion Concealer $9.99

            Elf Clarifying Pressed Powder $1.00

            Wet and Wild Ultimate Eye Brow Kit $3.99

            Black Radiance Golden Shimmer Bronzer (discontinued) $9.65

            Vasaline (to my lips,para los labios) $4.49

            L’OREAL 24HR Infalliable eye shadow Bronze Taupe $7.95

            Elf Regular & Waterproof Mascara Duo (review coming soon) $.99
