Review: Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion

I was finishing this entry while watching the Super Bowl, I'm not the biggest fan of football; however I'm suffering because I wanted Panthers to win. At least the show was amazing, for me Queen B and Bruno Mars nailed it, so much style.

The product of today is one of my staples for having a better skin. Clinique tells us this about its Mild clarifying lotion:

"Dermatologist-developed formula softens and soothes dry, sensitive skins. Sweeps away dulling flakes so moisturizer can do its job better. Gel-like formula delivers gentle, non-stinging refreshment."

Sleek Blush By 3 in Californ.I.A. review

Hi people! This week the review is of one of the products that I’m bananas about it: blush. But in particular this one has me head over heels and is the Sleek Blush By 3 in Californ.I.A., I can just say I LOVE IT! even though one shade is too pale for me.

When describing this product Sleek tell us the same of all of them:

“The ultimate cheeky palette offering you three times the impact. Includes three complementary shades, each designed with its own distinctive finish, from rich shimmers to intense matte shades.
Look at this fresh Sleek packaging

Review: Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup

Hi everybody this is the first review I’ve ever done since its beginning in both languages, it’s going to be a foundation which I had a love-hate relationship, but know I can say I’d think about repurchase it. Is the Clinique’s Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup; I use the shade 19 Sand, which is part of medium shades and has a neutral undertones. Clinique tell us the next description:

“Tested for streaking and fading at 88°F/31ºC with a constant 80% humidity, all to prove Stay-Matte stays fresh. At the same time, this patent-pending formula absorbs shine, controls oil, resists sweat. And you stay matte all day.”

What to put when you're in a hurry

We have all been there: you’re running out of time, you haven’t put on your makeup and you have a meeting. What would you do? You can’t make a full face so you use the minimum amount of product to look polished.

For me when you have an important meeting or event, the minimum amount of steps are five, well three essentials and two complimentary. I’m pretty sure everybody knows Jeremy Renner (yes Hawkeye), if you haven’t already known this, he’s a makeup artist and for he there are three essential steps (which for me are also the three essentials):

  • Brows: unless you got Cara’s brows (I’m jealous in that case), you should take care of them, call it brushing or doing them; you can see the difference in your face.
  • Lashes: if you have a set of full and curly lashes, you’ll probably skip this step. But for many curling and applying mascara make them look fresh and awake.
  • Lips: an intense lip color is the easiest way to look like you try hard to look fancy but without using a lot of time. Don’t be afraid of bright colors, life is too short to not using them.
The next two steps take the look to a different level but let’s be real sometimes you can’t do all what you want:
  • Face: whatever you use when in hurry (powder foundation, under-eye concealer, just some foundation or only primer) a face which looks more even takes you to another level when trying to look more dressed up.
  • Cheeks: you have to know I love blushes, they make you looks healthier and younger. Many people think blush looks false but well applied it looks like it comes from you, also you can try with some bright colored ones; just because it’s only makeup.
This is the first “translated” post I hope you like it. Do you have more tips?

Welcome to this adventure

This isn’t my first time writing a beauty blog, I’d written one in Spanish before that actually I’m relaunching along with this blog. So yes it’s going to be something like a bilingual blog, probably they won’t be a complete translation of each other but the ideas would be the same.

For this time I’ll be translating some old posts from my blog in Spanish, of products still available or musings that I consider can be important. Also when I publish in one language the same post will be published in the other language.

I’m not sure of how many times I can publish in a week but I hope you stay tuned and follow me on social media.
