Product Review: e.l.f. Dramatic Lash Kit

Around two weeks ago I had a mini shopping trip to Target and i don't remember exactly what I was looking for. The next day I had a mini photoshoot with my cousins and I wanted to look fancy. wanted to buy more My plan was to get some fake lashes which they are from &5.00 to $7.00 aproximately but then I saw the e.l.f makeup/tools area, i have seen it before but it never got my attention. The eyelashes that e.l.f. carries are pretty good for the price which is $1.00!

This is the Dramatic Lash Kit, they had a more natural looking kit but i wanted to go dramatic.
It includes the glue but it doesent do it's job so I used Waterproof Lash Grip by Ardell.
The eyelashes itself look pretty good but for me they were a little bit too long so I had to trim a couple lashes from the outter part.

There are some falsies out there that you can reuse but you can only reuse this ones if you take really good care of them and if you dont apply mascara to them.

Dream Catcher - Nail Tutorial

I have seen some pictures of Dream Catcher  nails and even if it looks a little complicated it is actually pretty easy and cute. Im really not going to mention the names of the nail polishes I use just because i don't really get expensive ones or famous brands. Also you can change the colors of the design.
Lets get started!

1) Start off with a base coat, then i applied like a peach color.

2) With a thin brush draw a half moon with black nail polish then in the middle of the half moon draw a triangle.

3) Follow the pattern untill you fill in the half moon. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT! Dream catchers are most of the times hand made so they are not perfect at all, you can even change it depending on what you like.

4) Add three strands falling from the half moon. The middle one has to be shorter than the other two.

5) On the middle strand add a feather, all you have to do is draw little random lines going to the opposite side and down, if you can't do the feather you can just add bigger dots.

6) On the other two strands with a bobby pin or dotting tool add little dots of different colors. Done!!!

This nail design takes quite a long time but it is easy to do.
I am definetly not a professional but i just want to share some of the things i love to do.

Influenster Latina Beauty VoxBox 2012

A couple weeks ago i got my Latina VoxBox I was so excited to get it since it was my first VoxBox. I recived this products for testing purposes only. Now here are the products I got..

Veet Ready to Use Wax Strips, Leg & Body - $9.99 
This wax strips are formulated to remove hair on legs, underarms and bikini area from closer to the root than shaving for smoothness that lasts up to 4 weeks.
My Opinion: The box states that removes hair as short as 2 mm. The instructions are very easy to follow but honestly this did not work for me at all. Even when i tried to remove the longest hairs, and i ended up with sticky wax all over me


     NYC Color Liquid Lipshine $2.49
Keeps your lips softs, it's pure pigments create a 3-D glossy effect.The non-sticky formula creates the ultimate creamy and soft textured feel.
My Opinion: This lip gloss itself its pretty good, easy applicator. My only problem is that it is really sticky when its not supposed to but besides that its a drug store lip gloss.

Bath and Body Works Signature Collection Shower Gel - $5 for mini size & $11 for full size
New and improved! Sower Gel now with Shea Butter, giving you softer and cleaner skin.
My Opinion: This shower gel its amazing! I got Twilight Woods in the mini size and i absolutely love it. It is excactly what i expected.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydratation Lotion Sunscreen $7.99
Provides continuos 12-hour moisture and broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection that won't break down during the summer sun. Avalaible in SPF 12, 30, 50.
My opinion: This sunscreen/lotion is great! It doesent feel like a sunscreen at all and you can use it daily. It smells really good as well.

            Always Radiant Infinity Pads $6.99
Infinity  feature a unique technology that conforms to each individual shape delivery premium protection and performance.
My Opinion: Always has always been a famous company but for me this product isnt good as described. The sticky part of the pad doesent say on like it should but besides that is okay.
