Review: Champagne pop

 Read in English      Leer en Español

On Today´s post I want to talk about this new makeup product I just got at Sephora, it’s a duo compact: highlighter and blush.

It’s from Becca cosmetics but it is also a collaboration with a you tuber one of my favourites to be honest: Jaclyn Hill.

It came out last year, ever since I found out about it a have been wanting to get my hands on it but for some reason I couldn’t until now. I usually don’t use highlighters, but, this one it’s so beautiful I think I’m in love with it!!

You can get the highlighter by its self or as a duo with a blush, like the one I got and I’ll show you down below.

This product it’s the beautiful champagne pop; champagne splits in the colours: champagne pop / Hyacinth.

The packaging it’s pretty comes in a golden box. At front has the name of the brand which is Becca and has the name of Jaclyn below the brand and the name of the product itself. In the back of it has a small picture of Jaclyn, her signature, and a little description of the product.

The compact comes in the traditional Becca cosmetics package and when you open it you find this gorgeous duo powders in the most amazing colours ever.  

The highlighter has a rose gold tone and the blush is a very strong vibrant pink.

Both are very pigmented so a little goes a long way, specially the blush. Their consistency is like any other compact powder, when you apply it to the skin and blend them, they blend so beautiful almost like a cream or liquid product.

It is my first time buying a Becca cosmetic product and honestly, I am really happy with it; I was a little a afraid that the colours won’t look good on my skin tone, because, I have only seen them on very fair skin girls, but, because the highlighter has a rose and gold tone on it looks really pretty on me and I think it does looks amazing on any skin colour.

I’m not sure if this is a limited-edition product, but, despite the price I think It has a very good quality and its totally worth your money.

Have you try this highlighter before?

We´ve all heard about the famous detox diets that most artist use them to lose weight and they consist on only drinking juice for a week or two. This die promises to not only detoxify your body by getting read of all the toxins but also to help you lose weight fast, but.  Do they really work?
photo from

This strict diets, they do help your body get read of everything that won’t use while cleaning your intestines but at the very same time, it will slow your metabolism making you gain weight.

Why this happens?

Since you are not eating enough, your body doesn’t have nutrients, carbohydrates... and everything that need to help you do all your activities through the day; causing your metabolism to work at a lower speed that it usually does, to help your body keep the food as a something extra in case you decide not to feed your body again.

When you start eating again, your body keeps preserving all this food he is getting just in case of an emergency (like you decide to live out of juice again), and that causes you to gain weight.

How can I detoxify my body without my metabolism?

Detoxifying your body is nothing more than getting read of all toxins that have been accumulating through the years…

You can help your body do this process easily without starving yourself by doing the following tips:

. Eat more fruits and vegetables: remember to eat at least 5 portions of different fruits and vegetables through the day and eat less fried foods and junk food.

. Drink more water: it is recommended to drink at least 2 litters of water a day, but, it will vary on your daily activities. If you exercise you need to drink more than 2 litters.

If you don’t like drinking water, try putting in it some fruit to make it more refreshing and delicious.

. You can add to your daily diet some detox juices in the morning as a breakfast2 or 3 times a week like the green smoothie that is made of: pineapple, parsley, grapefruit, orange, and celery. But eat as you usually would through the day.

I usually drink this smoothie 2 times a week, especially when I have been eating lots of junk food, and feel bloated.  

.Be active: unbelievably, exercising is the best way to detoxify your body, because, when you exercise you sweat, and trough the sweat toxins are released.

I really don’t like or trust this diets that makes you drink or eat only one thing for 5 or 7 days. I do believe the best way to help our body be ¨free¨ of toxins I trough a healthy and balance diet combined with exercise.

How do you detox yourself?

Pupa Mascara Review

 Read in English      Leer en Español

Hello everyone, hope you all had a great holiday, may your year started full of new amazing resolutions and positive vibes.

After a couple of busy days at work, I finally have the chance to sit-down and write a new post for you, although it’s a short one, but I hope you guys like it.

Today´s post its about my review or impressions on the Diva´s Lashes mascara from Pupa Milano.

Honestly, I really love this makeup brand specially their eyeliners because there the only ones I can use that would not irritate my eyes.

 I have no idea why, but apparently, pupa eyeliners are the only ones I can use on my waterline without making my eyes red and watery.

This post its all about the Diva´s Lashes mascara, and it is my very first time using it.
Comes in a red packaging, it’s a very skinny and on the packaging, says the name of the mascara and says that gives high definition and maxi volume and it is extra black!!

The brush or wand it’s just a regular mascara wand to me it’s the perfect size not too big not too small, it allows me to use it on both my top and lower lashes.

Before I talk about my impressions on the mascara I want to tell you guys I got this specific mascara at Costco at an amazing prize.

I found a 2-mascara package for about 20 dollars!! Crazy, right? Here in my country only 1 mascara of this brand costs 20 dollars and sometimes even more. I saw it and I knew I must buy it . well moving on to the post.

As I thought, because I’ve used other mascaras from this brand before; it is light like you don’t feel you have mascara on, doesn’t leave any lumps on. It does say extra black but to be honest I don’t see a difference on the colour comparing it to other brands, to me it’s just black.

It doesn’t leave the lashes tick and heavy , eve I use like 3 or 4 layers of mascara ( I know too many ) doesn’t make my lashes  stick together, the brush does help to keep a natural soft look.

With Mascara

No Mascara

On the pictures above I didn’t curl my lashes just because I wanted to really appreciated the results of it and well to me it doesn’t really do what it says.

I don’t feel or see any extra volume or definition on my lashes, I mean, you do see a difference between both pictures the one with mascara on and the one without the mascara.  
But the result is very natural looking to me.

If you like some voluminous and extra-long lashes then this mascara isn’t for you, because it’s not going to make your lashes look bigger or fuller.

If You are like me and  prefer a more natural look but still looking like you are wearing makeup. Then this mascara it´s perfect for you.

Even though it doesn’t do what it promises, I am using it and I will recommend the mascara but specially the brand for all those of you who have sensitive eyes like me. 
Sometimes with some brands, when I apply my mascara I feel that my eyes burn a little and they turned red.  I don’t know why it happens,but with the pupa one I didn’t feel anything at all. So, it’s great for sensitive eyes.


Don’t forget to leave your opinions on the comments down below I do enjoy reading them. I´ll see you all in the next post!

D.I.Y peel off mask- mascarilla

 Read in English      Leer en Español

Peel-off Mask

Hello everyone, today´s post it’s the last one of the year, and, I wanted to close with a very popular trend on youtube: the activated charcoal peel off mask.

If you have seen in, this mask is made with glue and activated charcoal. People claim this works perfectly and it’s an excellent black head and white head remover.

Activated charcoal can be bought at any drugstore or pharmacy, and has many health benefits and helps to deep clean the skin. It is safe to use.

However, the glue it’s something that should not be use as a cosmetic product, even though its non-toxic, wasn’t made to be use on the skin and it can irritate the skin or even burn it.

Doesn’t matter how many people say it’s safe to use and works, don’t do it! Don’t use glue as a face mask

If you really want to try a peel-off activated charcoal mask I have a better alternative for you.

What you need:

  • Milk (preferably almond or coconut milk)
  • Non-sugar gelatine
  • Activated charcoal 

The gelatine will work as a base of the mask to make it a peel-off

Preparation: mix the warm milk with the gelatine until its completely dissolve, add the charcoal and mix it well. The amount of charcoal you´ll ad will vary according on how much product you are making for example: I only use 1 capsule because I only use the mask on my nose.

Once all the ingredients are mixed, wait for it to cool so you don’t burn your face but don’t wait too long you would want to apply the mask before it gets sticky.

Apply the mask with a brush and let it dry completely.

Once its dry, try peeling the ends of the mask first then peel it all off at once (as you would do it if you were waxing) if you do have black heads you´ll see them.   

It really works, leaves the skin soft and removes all the black heads, I suggest to only use this mask on the nose and the T zone because it does hurts a little when you peel it off.

If you don’t have black heads or oily skin, I don’t recommend you to do this mask because it can irritate your skin, since has nothing to remove.
But you do use the mask use it only 1 or 3 times a month, remember overusing a product can also damage your skin.

Have you try the activated charcoal peel-off mask? 

Please don’t forget to share on the comment your experience if you try the mask.

Since it’s the last post of the year, I want to wish you all a happy new year hope 2017 comes with lots of great things for all of you and thank you so much for all the support through the year.
