Urban Decay De Slick Review

I always like to read and watch reviews when purchasing a new product, specially if its a little on the expensive side, so for about a month I was eyeing this spray and reading wonderful things about it. The same day that I was going to purchase this item I received an email from Sephora of a free sample kit called "ITKIT" with any purchase and the sample kit included a mini size De Slick Spray which is $12 at Ulta Travel Size De Slick at Ulta HERE!

This product states to leave you shine free for 16hrs, gives you a matte finish with out clogging your pores.
They suggest you to spray before and after your makeup, shake well and spray three to four times holding six to eight inches from the face.

The travel size spray is 15 ml 0.51 US fl oz, I think its a perfect size and it should last you long enough to realize if its worth to purchase the bigger size for $18 dollars HERE!

I suffer from oily skin but my face seems to have a bipolar disorder and it can change from oily to dry one day to another, specially during the fall and winter. Ive tried all kinds of face products and makeup for oily skin and they seem to never work for me. I constantly have to be applying powder through the day to my T-ZONE!

After about one hour of applying this spray (I applied four sprays before makeup and four after) for the first time i felt like my face was completely dry, I'm talking about nasty dry, where I couldn't even smile without feeling like I was stretching my skin out. about four hours in, I was too self conscious about my face and I still felt like my face was shiny in some areas (around my nose). The firsts two or three days I wasn't to pleased with this spray, it actually dried out my nose so bad that it was peeling and some parts of my face still looked shiny and oily =(.  I never apply moisturizer (Since my face normally gets more oily when I do) but on the fourth day I decided to change up my routine and applied a small amount of moisturizer then continued with only spraying my face twice, then applied my makeup (foundation, eyeliner, mascara, blush and powder) and finishing up three sprays, instead of doing eight total sprays I was going five sprays and this new technique seem to work wonders. My skin felt moisturized and at the same time the oil was not building up on my face, there were days were my face seemed to get a bit shiny but I do blame that on what I was eating or not drinking enough water.

After using this new technique of using the moisturizer and spraying less I can now say that this product is amazing, but I dont believe it will make your face shine/oil free for 16 hours, It seems to last up to eight hours on my face, I also believe that as the hours pass my face seems to get a little dewy but not oily and even though at first I was expecting my face to be completely perfect with this product I'm okay with the results.
I really do recommend for anyone that has oily skin to try this spray, you will be amazed with the results and after dealing with oily skin I'm sure a dewy or semi shiny finish will be better than feeling like your makeup is melting on your face.

Please dont expect for this photoshop perfect finish that all makeup products promise, If you're going to give this a try experiment with it a little, change up your routine and find out how many sprays work better for you!

I hope you found this review helpful! If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Favorite Pink Shade Lipsticks by Mac Cosmetics

I have this huge obsession with pink lipsticks, and who dont love MAC lipsticks?
These have to be my favorite shades by MAC

Snob- Light Pink Shade, this lipstick is a satin finish but it seems to be a little more dry than the usual satin lippies, which i loveeee!

Chatter Box- Baby Pink shade, super creamy and perfect for dry lips (helps mine feel moist)

Cut a Caper- Coral/Pink shade, I recommend this lipstick when your lips are fully moist and not dry since the Lustre finish make the imperfections stand out a little more.

Lickable- Hot pink/fuchsia shade, super pigmented and very creamy!

Viva Glam Nicki- Bright Pink, this lipstick has to be my #1 favorite pink lipstick! i love this shade for the summer! perfect barbie pink color!

Late night thoughts ....

Its late at night and i cant sleep because my head is full of questions and thoughts.. So i needed to vent and even though this has nothing to do with makeup it is my blog so i can blog about anything i want !! Boo ya! Lol

I been super anti social for the past two months. Im not sure exactly whats wrong with me but all i know is that i enjoy and love being home doing nothing and secluded from the outside, i love the peacefulness of being away,  but there is days that i get super girly dramatic and hate the fact that I'm pushing myself away from the world! But today i can honestly answer a few of my questions and realize that at this point in my life im better by staying away.. Ive been betrayed, stepped on, used, bullied, looked down by many close friends and i admit that am not the greatest of friends and i might not deserve the best of treatment at times .. But enough is enough.. Ive made plenty of excuses and continued to sit there and get my feelings hurt over and over again! & today ive realized that its very unfair because it usually comes from the people that im 100% honest with and to the people that I've never sugarcoated anything and given my all too! I need to stop trying to make everyone happy, i need to stop trying to never be the bad one and for that same reason i always end up like the bad one, i need to stop over thinking everything and caring to much ! Takes a lot of broken hearts to realize the true colors of some people! Thank God that even if i seclude myself from the outside world my family and husband will always be there! ...... Oh God that felt good !!! Now goodnight !!

Zombie Bride Halloween Look

I'm getting really into this whole Halloween Makeup! I'm also getting very comfortable working with the latex . I did my mouth first, and I wasn't sure what i wanted to do with the rest of the face so I decided to not do something so bloody and scary and threw my hair up on a bun, added the pearls (Necklace). 
Eyes: Did a black smokey eye, added glitter to the lid, applied really dramatic eyelashes and black eyeliner (top and bottom). Face: I applied a foundation that's around two shades lighter all over my face,lips and around the ripped mouth, I went over with foundation powder. (I have no blush on). For the bruised effect I just used black, dark purple, grey, and dark blue.

Hope you guys enjoyed ! =)

All pictures are under different lighting!

Crazy Zombie Halloween Look

I hope you guys enjoy this crazy scary freaky look! Doing this look wasn't easy at all, working with the latex has to be the toughest part specially since I purchased a cheap one that wasn't working properly. The teeth were the second hardest, one of them will be perfect and the next one will come out crooked! Easiest and funnest part was the throat (I'm a sick person to say that lol)

Halloween Leopard look!

This leopard look was inspired by the great "Petrilude" he has to be one of my favorite Youtube channels!
I didnt follow his leopard tutorial step by step, there was only some ideas I got out of his video!
I used my BH Cosmetics Concealer palette to highlight and contour, Mac's "Blunt" , white and black eyeliner, and for most part my fingers were my tools!
I hope you guys like this look! I wish I had more pictures, but it was night time and the lighting wasn't helping at all!
If you have any questions feel free to ask! =)

here's a link to Pertrilude"s channel!
