Summer (Confusion): Revlon’s Peach Pango Lip Gloss & Lover’s Coral Lipstick Swatches

Hello everyone! I live in the snow for most of the year and this is the first time in two years that I am experiencing a full blown summer because I am usually in Argentina during the summer in the U.S. (down there it is winter when it is summer here). When I come back to the U.S. I experience the very end of summer right before classes resume. So I have had a plethora of new experiences which include farmer’s tan, clothing confusion, and makeup confusion… as well as nail polish confusion. I have gotten pretty used to what colors I wear on myself and now that I am tan I am having a difficult time dressing myself and well… painting myself. It is unbelievable how much of a difference skin tone makes when wearing certain colors! I used to ALWAYS wear berry colors on my lips and nails because it went well with my skin tone and now I look like a clown when I wear them!

Anyways, during my 2-year-long winter I had at times desired to wear “summery colors” (especially peach/orange) but of course most did not look good. The other day (like 4 weeks ago) when I was perusing blogs I came across Revlon’s new releases and I decided I wanted to try Pango Peach and Lover’s Coral.

Pango Peach is a creamy pinky/peachy color with golden shimmers that almost look like flakes. It’s not very sticky and has a strange smell that is not gross and fades away!

Lover’s Coral looks very intimidating but actually goes on a very sheer (which I love) wash of pinky/orange.

I’ve included tons of photos to show the glitter/flakes and colors so ya’ll know what I’m talkin bout. (It was an overcast day at the park so the flakes might not shimmer as much)

These lip swatches are not very accurate because it was overcast and my lips are pretty pigmented now because of the sun and the shadows are all wrong! But I included it in case you have a similar skin tone to mine and also because I really appreciate when bloggers take their time to post lip swatches (even though these are shoddy).

MAC Creme in Your Coffee Lipstick Swatch

Hello everyone! I’ve taken an unexpected hiatus from blogging due to the demands made from my wonderful statistics class… *cue vomit*
Although I appreciate the education, am learning tons and getting the course out of the way, I don’t expect I will ever take to math.

Anyways, this week I was in San Francisco with my father and stepmother and we had a great time! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to visit such a lovely city.
While there I got MAC’s rosy brown MLBB lipstick “Creme in Your Coffee”. I had been wanting this color for ages but I couldn’t justify it’s simplicity. Especially because I own MAC’s “Syrup” and I felt it was too similar (judging off online swatches). However, Syrup is truly more of a plummy mauve on me.

This lipstick is a cremesheen finish. It’s not overly drying but I do like to use it with a lip balm under it to give a more glossy finish.
Overall, I really enjoy this lipstick and I’m looking forward to wearing it more often in the fall when my skin gets paler.

Sheer Snapdragon Swatch & NOOTD

Hello! It’s been forever since I’ve posted because I’ve just been lazying around before my summer statistics class begins *insert pukey face*.

Anyways! I’ve got a beautiful buttery lipstick swatch and review that I promised in my previous awkward post here and a nail of the day today. The lipstick is “Sheer Snapdragon” from Flower which is sold only at Walmart if I’m not mistaken. The lipstick smells divine and I can’t describe it but I love it! However, the smell might not be to everyone’s liking so beware that it does smell (wonderful)!
The color is an orangey-red with very small golden glitters that are barely noticeable but add to the color. It also feels very moisturizing and smooth. The only complaint that I have is the packaging. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it aesthetically, but the cap thingy came off and the plastic part sort of crackled like cheap plastic does 😦 It’s been increasingly hard to close it again once I’ve opened it but I can deal with that 🙂

Hola! Hace mucho tiempo que no pongo nada nuevo porq he estado flojeando y vageando antes de que empieze mi clase de estatisticas este verano, buaj que asco 😦

Hoy tengo un rouge para mostrarles que prometi en este post y el esmalte (s) del dia! El rouge se llama “Sheer Snapdragon” de Flower que solamente se vende en Walmart si no me equivoco. Huele riquisimo! No puedo describirlo pero me encanta como huele! Quiza no les guste el olor asi que ojo que tiene olor! (Pero uff es riquisimo!)
El color es un anaranjado-rojizo con brillitos dorados super chiquitos que no se notan casi nada pero definitivamente agregan al color. Se siente muy suave y hidratante. Lo unico que no me gusta es el “embalaje?” (no se si esa es la palabra equivocada). Pero el plastico de la capa se despego y el otro plastico esta como medio partido 😦 Cada vez que trato de cerrarlo se me hace una joda pero no me molesta mucho 🙂

The 7 Questions That Tell You Who You Are

Have a read, I insist…

Thought Catalog

Many of the answers we’re seeking are answers we already have. We just don’t know how to access them. Understanding who you are isn’t something you stumble upon one day. It’s embedded within you; you just have to be vulnerable long enough to uncover it. Your everyday actions are shouting what you may not be conscious of.

1. What would you do with your life if you didn’t have to pay the bills? If money weren’t an issue, what would you do with your days? Would you write? Read? Sing? Whatever it is, you have to do that thing. Money is an interesting phenomenon that completely controls our everyday lives without having any purpose other than sustainability in the form of purchasing from others what we could produce and create right in our own backyards. Consider that when you’re deciding between a soulless job that will make you rich versus…

My Sister’s Nails (Owl Design)…Las Uñas De Mi Hermana (Diseño de Buho)

I am well aware that Owls are becoming quite common in today’s younger generation… I see people with owl tattoos, earrings, necklaces, shirts, bags etc you name it, everywhere… Anyways!

Clichéness, Awkward Lace & Tatas… Hormone Talk & Lipstick Promises

a : lacking social grace and assurance <an awkward newcomer>

Yep, so that’s what awkward is. Yep, I definitely fall into that ‘category’, if you will. I never understood the American use of the word awkward as in, “I was awkwardly standing there.” I cannot understand how someone can stand somewhere in an awkward manner. Anyways, I will be lacking some social grace within this post but hopefully making up for it with a hopeful lipstick promise.

So… Breasts. I recently went to buy new bras. I was aware that my breasts had reduced in size. I am 20 years old, never been pregnant, and am not on any hormone altering medication, nor have I lost any weight. When I was 18 they grew overnight and I had an extremely hard time finding stores that carried my size. I foolishly loathed my breasts instead of loving and accepting myself. After a while I got over my abnormal size. When I went in to get sized a few weeks ago I found out I had lost an entire cup size! I went to Frederick’s of Hollywood and bought the same style I had before… only one cup smaller 😦

I was surprisingly sad and dumbfounded at the news! I had finally accepted that it is what I had and I was OK with it. Ah humans. We desire what we don’t have and when we have it we uselessly long for what once was before our desires were granted.

So ladies and gents, this is a cliche message but nevertheless required a lot of courage to spew (it’s not a simple thing… to talk so freely of one’s undergarment fluctuations). Desperately try to appreciate what you do or don’t have at the moment. I don’t mean material possessions nor people around you, not that I am disregarding the importance of others, but be a little self-centered and love yourself. Now that I am 20 years old I have observed my body make small changes here and there from age 16. Some I have eagerly welcomed, other changes… not so much. I’ve tried to adapt a new perspective to the inevitable perpetual changes, I look in the mirror and tell myself… “Enjoy what you got, kid.”

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Seuss

So… now onto appreciate my new size AGAIN. This is made infinitely easier by the lacy design of the comfy flattering bras. I got one in black and nude (essentials).

So I’ve got to ask, can this be an alteration of my hormones? I currently do not have health insurance to go find out! If this has happened to you as well please do dish if you don’t mind!

Here is a photo of a new lipstick I recently purchased and I promise I will be posting about soon! I lerve it so much!

Essie’s Lapis of Luxury & Pet My Peacock

Hallo Leute! I used this combination for about a week. Now, that is a long time for me to be wearing the same colour so you can tell I loved it.

Hola gente! Use esta combinacion por una semana! Usar un esmalte por una semana un culo de tiempo para mi… se nota que me encanta.

ImageI used Spoiled “Pet My Peacock” as an accent. I love this glitter polish because you don’t have to fidget much with the individual glitters. It applies smoothly and evenly. My main colour is Essie’s “Lapis of Luxury”. I’ve been wanting this colour for a long time but I never wanted to dish out the money for it because it seemed a bit plain but I’m glad I did! I will be using it tons over the summer!

Use Spoiled “Pet My Peacock” para dar un acento en vez de pintarme todas las uñas con brillitos. Me encanta este esmalte porq no hay que joder mucho con la posicion de los brillitos. El color azul es de Essie se llama “Lapis of Luxury” y hace muuucho tiempo que queria este color pero no se me hacia que valia la pena pero la verdad me encanta! Lo voy a usar un monton este verano!

ImageLapis of Luxury is a bit sheer, I used three coats to ensure full coverage.

Lapis of Luxury de Essie es medio transparente asi que use tres capas para que quede opaco.
