July Wish List

As the month ends tomorrow, I though I would make a little list of all the (beauty related) things I want to buy this coming month.
R-L: L'oreal caresse lip stain - Models OWN lip crayon - Benefit eye primer - Marc Jacobs Daisy - Models OWN 5 P brush set - BLUE Q airmail pouch.
l'oreal caresse lip stains: I've been eyeing this for a few weeks now, but as in the store where I buy my Loreal products there are no testers, I had to do a little online research to see what shades I liked the most. And the winners are: Stay Lilac ever after, and Rose on and on.
Models Own lip crayon: Lately I've been having a little obsession with lip crayons, it all started when I got a few MUA power pouts, and when I saw that models own had launched their very own crayons, I was like neeeed them! this shade is Raspberry Cool (I have a thing for this kind of shades this fall/winter)
Benefits Lemon Aid eyelid primer: I'm on the search for the perfect eye primer, and after reading a few reviews, I think I've found the one I like. The only problem (sort of speak) is that its a bit on the pricier side  (£16 in ASOS), I'm a drugstore makeup kinda gal, and I don't know If I feel like splurging, specially because If I get it online, there is no way of testing the product.
Models OWN neon brushes: I'm in the need of some travel brushes as I'm going on a short getaway in a week or so, and this are sooo cute I couldn't resist.
Blue Q Postal pouch: I also so this beauty in ASOS (I'm an ASOS addict and I'm in no way going to rehab), and I thought "perfect for a makeup bag!" and oh so cute!
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau du Fresh: This coming month is my BDay and I've gotten the little habit of gifting myself a perfume every year (oh how I love me!). This year, I think I'm going to go for this lovely one, I tested it and I can't stop thinking about it. As most of my perfumes are strong scented, so this fresh fragrance will come in handy for spring.

Have you tried any of this products? I would love to hear you opinion!!

Review: Maybelline Color Tattoos

A few days ago, I bought a couple of "color tattoos" from maybelline. They are pretty new (I think they only came out a few months ago), and I have to say, I love them.
The two I bought are Bad to the Bronce and Taugh as Taupe. The first one is a broncy/coper color (depending on how much product you use) and very glittery, I love it, but it's not the best product to use during the day. So that's why I decided to buy Tough as Taupe, a grey taupy color, completly matte.
Both of them aply very smoothly on the eye and, once they dry, they don't crease nor budge.

L: Bad to the Bronce R: Tough as taupe

I really like both of them, but specially Tough as Taupe which has become my daily eye product (just a bit of that across the lid, eyelinner and mascara, and I'm good to go)
swatches (without and with flash) top: Bad to the Bronce. Bottom: Tough as Taupe

 They are also perfect as eyeshadow base. I've used Bad to the broce across the lid with a dark brown on the outer corner and it lasts for hours.

Hace unos días, compré un par de "color tattoos" de maybelline. Son bastante nuevas (creo que sólo salieron hace un par de meses) y tengo que decir que me encantan.
Los dos colores que compre son Bad to the bronce y Tough as taupe. La primera es un color broce/cobre (dependiendo de cuanto producto se use) y tiene mucho brillo, si bien me encantó, no es lo más "usable" durante el día, por lo que decidí comprar también tough as taupe, un color que es un gris topo un poco amarronado, completamente mate.
Ambos son muy suaves al aplicarlos y, una vez que se secan, no se corren ni manchan
La verdad, me gustan muchisimo ambas, pero en especial Tough as Taupe, que se convirtió en un producto de uso diario, aplico un poco en todo el parpado, delineador, mascara, y ya está)
También son perfectos como base para sombras, he usado Bad to the bronce en todo el párpado con un poco de marron oscuro en la esquina exterior del ojo y me ha durado por horas.
