Post-Trip Makeup Look

Post-Trip Makeup Look

Hello and happy Monday. I just came back from a one-week trip to Baltimore and in a few days I’ll be back on a plane to Germany with my family. The next few months are going to be one crazy mess, and on top of that I’ll have to look professional, which means, I have to pull off a decent makeup look that requires little time or effort. This is a smokey golden brown look that I really like because it seems like I actually took my time. These are the steps I followed to achieve it:

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Eyebrows
  5. Golden brown (eyelid base)
  6. Gold (center of the lid)
  7. Golden brown (lower lash line)
  8. Mascara
  9. Bronzer
  10. Blush
  11. Lipgloss
  12. Matte setting spray

Tell me about your plans for the next few months.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila

Sample vs. Full Size #9

Sample vs. Full Size #9

Miss Camila (1).pngHello and happy Sunday. When I write posts like this, I’m always in awe at the variety of products I get to try thanks to Ipsy, especially because they tend to be expensive, so I wouldn’t have a chance to play with them otherwise. Today, as always, I have a set of products for you, and we’ll figure out if I’d buy the full size version or not. Let’s get started, shall we?

CAKE BEAUTY Heavy Cream Intensive Body Balm

Full size: I got the travel size that was 30ml or 1 fl. oz. The full size version is 150ml or 5 fl. oz; and a travel size that is

Full price: The full-size version is $22, while the travel size is $9.

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I love this cream. It is super thick, so a little goes a long way. I wouldn’t pay $9 for the travel-size, but I would pay $22 for the full size. Just do the math: you’d be paying a little over two times the price for five times as much product, and trust me when I tell you it’ll last you a long while.

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET COSMETICS Eyeshadow in Sangria 

Full size: I got the full size version in my glam bag.

Full price: $12

Buy? Yes/No? Why? This shade is simply stunning and I love to wear it when I want to add a pop of color to a look. I wouldn’t buy it, though because I have a very strict policy of not buying singles that cost the same as a full palette. I don’t think it makes any sense and I personally don’t think that any eyeshadow single is worth over $10.

BELLÁPIERRE Cosmetics Stay Put Brow Gel in Cardamom 

Full size: I got the full size version in my glam bag.

Full price: $25

Buy? Yes/No? Why? Hell no! I love my eyebrows and I want them to look pretty, but they’re not worth a $25 gel, especially not when I often like to alternate between shades depending on my mood or the look I’m going for.

THE BALM COSMETICS Mary-Lou Manizer 

Full size: I got a sample version of the highlighter.

Full price: $24

Buy? Yes/No? Why? We all know the answer to this one already, but let me remind you. No, I would not buy this product, for several reasons. Number one, I don’t believe in paying that amount of money for a single item, especially when there are palettes that are just as good and that cost the same or less. Number two, highlighter is not an essential for me, which means I’m more inclined to pay less for products like this. Number three, I have enough highlighters already in different shades, so I really don’t need another one.

ANDALOU NATURALS Argan & Shea Styling Cream 

Full size: I got the sample version that is 1.7 fl. oz or 50ml. The full size version is 6.8 fl oz. or 200ml.

Full price: The sample version is $1.99 and the full size is $9.95.

Buy? Yes/No? Why? I only use this type of products twice a week, which is how often I wash my hair, so I think I’d get the mini version, which has a fantastic price point. Fuck yes, I’d buy this, and I also recommend it 100%.

Would you buy any of these products? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
