Working days...

Well, these days I've been looking for a job. I got lots of need that my parents wont pay for, such as clothing, concerts, accesories, make up, etc. So after some job interviews, I got accepted in one. So now I have to use formal clothing. My idea of formal clothing is really different from most people's idea. 

When I think of job clothes, the picture of high heels inmediately pops in my head. I LOVE high-heels not only because they make me look taller, but because they stylize you whole body. Of course, only when you use them correctly. Well, I wanna share with you the outfit I used last week for my training.

It's just a long black skirt, a white blouse and black pumps. What makes it unique? The accesories! I used neon pink necklace and my love ring. And when I was outdoors I used my cat eye sunglasses I bought last week.

I also used a sparkle nail polish. I love it! And I got it for just $1! Also, the reason why I had my hair tied is because this way it's more "formal". Anyway, after the training was over, the instructor told us that since we are going to give a speech in front of teenagers, we need to use formal pants. DAMN. I was just wondering if I could used those asimetric skirts or a pair or latex leggings. But, NO. Stupid kids.

So, I will only be able to play with my accesories, my hair and my nail polish. Well, well. At least, this is only for summer. When I get a real job, I will make sure that there is not such a boring clothing protocole :/

Well, that's it for today. Have a nice week!

Super Stay Makeup 24hr (Natural Beige) Review

Hi. Today, I'm making the review of Maybelline's Super Stay Makeup 24hr - Natural Beige. I've been using this product for over a year now. I tried the two presentations of it: the Classic Beige (the first one I got) and the Natural Beige (the one I'm reviewing today). Alright, let's start with the basics first.

The packing says:

1) Withstands heat, sweat and humidity.
2) No-transfer, won't rub off.
3) Flexible, breathable, all-day comfort.
4) Oil free. Non pore-clogging.
5) Suitable for all skin types.

The ingredients:

Aqua/Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polypropylsilsesquioxane, Isododecane, Dimethicone, C30 45 Alkyl Dimethylsilyl Propylsilsequioxane, Glycerin, Silica, PEG 10 Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Polyglycerin 3 Crosspolymer, Sodium Chloride, Nylon 12, Phenoxyethanol, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Chlorphenesin, Ethylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Acrylates Copolymer, Aluminum Hydroxide, Paraffin, May Contain (+/-): CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77499, CI 77492, CI 77491 (Iron Oxides)

The picture above it's the foundation on natural light, with no flash. As you can see, it's pinky. Let's talk about the packing's statements. 

1) Yes, it stands heat, sweat and humidity. I can say about this because I used this foundation for concerts (I also used the Maybelline's dream matte powder with it) and I came back home the same way I left. My face was kind of shiny because of the heat of the moment (I was in the middle of the crowd), but nothing that powder can not hide. It's very enduring. I love that!

2) So false. There is a thing I hate about this foundation and it's the fact that it transfers to every thing my skin is in contact. I think the only reason why I keep using this foundation is because of its great coverage.

3) Kind of. The first sensation I got when I put on this foundation was that my skin didn't seem fresh. It feels oily and it doesn't give you a natural look, to be honest. But, I think you can be confident that your makeup won't banish during the day provided that you don't touch your face with anything but powder.

4) Well, after a year of using it. I think it's not THAT pore-clogging but my skin is in not that good condition as before. I have to use a moisturizer to treat my skin. However, I think it's also because I use this foundation almost 24/7. I think my skin should take a break, too.

5) As you can see in the picture, I have acne. I've always had it. And one reason I bought this makeup was because it was hypoallergenic... so it is suitable for me.

Pictures with natural light. Unfortunately, the second one came out darker :c

Finally, I give this foundation a 3/5.

After a year of using it, and two purchases, I don't think I'll buy a new bottle. After I tried the Classic Beige one (it was way too bronce/dark for me), I gave the foundation a second chance by buying the Natural Beige one. But, in the end it couldn't match my natural skin color. It looks too pink in my face and it doesn't give me a natural look. However, it has a great coverage. As you can see, it can cover almost all my blemishes with one layer application. Of course, with concealer and powder you get the 100% fair skin. And I love the fact that it's long-lasting. 

So that's for my review of today. I might also review the Classic beige so you can make a comparison between the two of them. Leave your comments if you have try it before or if you have any question I could help you with.

Have a nice day!

New outfit update


Well, like I said before, I made some time in my agenda to take some pictures of my daily outfits. This is the one I used today. It's very simple and casual. I liked to play with the colors a little. 

I used an offbrand shorts, my Marquis black pumps, an offbrand top and a headband I made myself out of my mother's old scarf. I also used my love ring.

And that's pretty much it for this entry. I tried to make a quick update. I'll post tomorrow a review of some cosmethic so wait for it :)

Have a nice day!

P.S: Please, if you have a lookbook account, hype my look. I would appreciate it a lot. ^^

Kpop Peru Festival + New acquisitions

I attended to a K-pop festival after a while. This was held last Saturday and it was FREE. There were dance covers and fan club's got their own stands. Even though it started late and it was HOT as hell that day, I spent a nice day. I went with my friend Leslie from the English institute and I got to meet some Sones. 

The funniest part for me was the presentation of the SNSD cover. The group performed "Kissing You" by Girls' Generation and it was lot of fun because we all Sone gathered and started to scream the fan chants. Everybody looked at us. Even the DJ played a little bit of "I got a Boy" (GG's last album)

Well, besides my expierence in this festival I wanted also to share with you guys my new acquisitions. The first one is my new pair of sunglasses. I simply love them, I've been looking for a pair like these since a while and after a quick visit to a mall i found them! I begged my dad to buy them until he agreed lol They were pretty cheap tho. The were less than 10$

I also got a pair of sandals by my mother. I love the animal print in it an the little ribbon in it. I think they are pretty unique and they are perfect for this bloody summer.

And a few days ago I went shopping with my mom. I was looking forward to buy some clothes but I couldn't find anything that attracted me a lot. So in the end, I only bought a bunch of accesories lol. I bought a ribbon (it's like a clip for hair), a pair of unicorn earrings (I love them since Key used them a while ago lol) and a moose/reindeer ring (finally a ring that fits to my skinny fingers! haha)

Must say that I don't have ear holes :c So I should pierce my ears these days in order to use the unicorn earrings. The thing is that my skin is kind of allergic to EVERYTHING. I can't use necklace, bracelets, earrings, etc because of it. I pierced my ears for three times in the past, but they closed after I stopped using earrings due to my allergic. The only reason why i bought these earrings it's because they are UNICORNS lol

Finally, my PUMPS! The first pair is fair black and they are shiny. I made my father buy these for me for an exposition I got lol (I also made him buy new formal clothing ᄏᄏᄏ)  I don't know what's the height of the shoe heel, but everyone in my class were surprised by the hight of the shoes lol
 I got the second pair from my mother from her trip to Brazil. They have some sort of studs and are not shiny as my other pair. But I love these since they are so~ comfortable to walk with. The only problem is that they are a size bigger than mine ᅮᅮ However, I put some cotton so I can used them haha

Well, that's for today's update. Have a nice day!
