BEST PRODUCTS FOREVER !!

Here are some of the TOP PRODUCTS that are in the market for years and continue to be  “CAN’T-LIVE-WITHOUT-IT” daily essentials hoarded by editors, readers and industry insiders alike, per  ELLE Magazine, 25th Anniversary Issue, October 2010. Those products are becoming the “Classiscs of Beauty”.

BENEFIT  Benetint. The Eva Peron of cosmetics, to be used on cheeks and lips !! It will give you the color of health. $ 28.00

GUERLAIN Terracotta Bronzing Powder. This one I use for @ least 10 years. My first one was given to me by my Sis-in -Law, Lulu. She is also a big lover of Terracotta by Guerlain. $ 47.00

YSL Highlighter Pen. Touch Eclat, a shimmery highlighter that covers anything and brightens anywhere.     $ 40.00

DIOR 5 Colors in Stylish Move. Dior eyeshadows, richly pigmented, silky and soft. The darkest shade can be applied with a wet brush as a liner and the pearly pink shade to highlight. $ 58.00

LANCOME Eye Pencil. Le Crayon Kohl, soft enough to smudge easily and do smoky eyes. You can try using pitch black color for smoky eyes. $ 24.00

NARS Blush. Nars Orgasm with the right touch of peach and pink. Per Elle Magazine, 2 Nars Orgasm are sold per minute in the US !! Uowww !! $ 26.00

CHANEL VAMP. A mix  of red-black lacquer caused “mass hysteria” when it was launched in 1994 and quickly became an uptown- girl basic. It will always be a classic look !! $ 23.00

CLE’ DE PEAU Consealer. The best consealer ever. It is a must have beauty product. It has a great consistency and is used by the Hollywood’s finest to hide any flaw from HD cameras. You must try it !! $ 70.00

CREME DE LA MER. A very rich and effective moisturizer developed by a Nasa scientist to clear up burns he suffered during an accident. I really noticed my skin very clear, soft and healthy looking. An amazing product. High price point, yes but totally worth the price..  1oz $ 130,00 2oz. $230.00.

SHU UEMURA Eyelash Curler. I can’t tell the difference between Shu Uemura curler and the other many curlers in the market but the truth is that I noticed  my lashes more higher and curled after using that. They all have the same shape, pretty much the same, but something made a difference in my eyes. $ 19.00

 

Hope you enjoy it !! I can’t wait for Halloween, tomorrow !!

Lots of fun to all of you !!

Piece & Love

ITS NEVER ENOUGH # 1

23 Oct

by Candida

I was doing a clean up on my closet and noticed that some styles I can have many of it and it will never be enough,  the more I have it  the more I buy it. It doesn’t go out of style but I keep asking myself , why do I need so many of the same ??? . Its only me ?? I hope not !!! (LOL)… So I will start a series of what its never enough to have and if you want to send me suggestions you can send an e-mail, candidacox@yahoo.com,  it will be fun to post all the ideas !

BLACK DRESS

Who has only one black dress ?? I used to work in a store and my clients’ favorite sentence after finishing buy it was, “I always end it up on a black dress, it will be one more in my closet”  or “I don’t know how many more black dresses I need” or ” all I have is black dresses, well I always need one “.  They would try the whole store and at the end they would buy a black dress !! So funny !! With a black dress you can never go wrong ! All dresses in the picture from Topshop.com

DISTRESSED DENIM SHORTS

I love it !! I can dress up or down, with flats or heels, I just love it !!  You can even do it yourself. get those pants that you don’t wear it anymore or your boyfriend’s jeans and customize yourself !! In my closet that its never enough !! In order from the left, top to bottom: J Brand,  Lucky Jeans, Black Orchid, Joey, Siwi, Current Elliot, Ziggy, Simon Affluent, Seven. Price range $ 120.00- $ 150.00. It will be way cheaper if you make your own !!

GET INSPIRED AND DO IT

Isn’t she pretty ?? Sabrina Sato, Brazilian bombshel !! She is wearing distressed denim shorts in different occasions !! It was all done by herself !! She customized her boyfriend’s jeans, per globo.com.

GRAPHIC TEES


No words !! Its never enough and always fun to wear it !! I love the graphic tees my favorites are  from Delias @ http://www.delias.com or commonthreadz.org/celebritees. Common Threadz is nonprofit helping orphans & vulnerable children in developing nations to reach their full potential. Check it out, prices are great . You not only buy a cool shirt but you are making a donation as well.  LET’S HELP OUR WORLD !!

LIP GLOSS

Do I need to say anything ???  I have lip gloss every where, in every bag… We need every color, every brand !! Should I say we or I ??? I hope I can say we, (LOL) I don’t have a favorite brand for lip gloss, believe it or not.  I buy any brand, it all depends of where I am at, if at Walgreens or Bloomingdales, CVS or Nordstron. I love it all , as long as its shiny !!

Have a great Saturday everyone !!  Do you have your Halloween costume ready ?? I haven’t even decided yet what I want to wear !! I better decide  and look for it, soon!!  Ow! I can’t wait for Halloween Day !! Fun, Fun, Fun !!

INSPIRATION

15 Oct

by Candida

AT THE BOOKSTORE

Where to go when I need inspiration ??? To the bookstore!!! I find myself in paradise  and  I can stay for hrs… So, I was just there with one of my BFF’s after celebrating a especial date for us , had lots of fun and found my inspiration !! One of my favorites bookstore is closing some of the stores. Yes, “Borders” has closed several locations. According to the News it is going out of business !!!. Very sad, but what can I say ??? Ipad has arrived to compete with the Bookshop Industry . It will be hard for the new generation to read the regular books, every book will be downloaded, but as long as they read it wont metter, right ???  Technology is awesome, but I am old school, even though I enjoy the ipad and all that stuff, I still love reading the actual book.  As you can see, my picture above in my favorite isle, Fashion. I get totally lost with all those magazines !! Love it !!

GET-THE-LOOK POWER PLUM

The old and simple purple color has been reinvented this Fall as Power Plum @ Sephora, Mesmerizing Purple or Deep Violet @ YSL, Daphne @ Nars and many other names by other brands as well. The shades are absolutely stunning !! Very seductive and sophisticated. Check it out,  tutorial by Silvia Dell’Orto, Makeup Artist for Sephora and have fun, GET-THE-LOOK !!

BAG OF THE WEEK

To keep all purple I chose a really cool bag by Proenza Schouler  -Fashionistas are loving cross body bags.

Thanks for visiting us and see you again soon !! xoxo
