Glow-Up Is Real

Hello LaPazions, I hope I find you all doing well and always fabulous.  Well, I have to make you all laugh; things have been beyond crazy in my office because I’m working from home and not in my office so, when supplies and different products come in, we spray them down, keep them in a designated area and don’t touch them for up to a week or more.  Today, as I was in my beauty closet, I see this little box sitting on the shelf and opened it to my great surprise I found a jewel of all jewels (ta-da)!! It was none other than a Fenty Beauty product… YES!! Fenty, it’s been sitting in the beauty closet all this time; well, needless to say, I had to bring this to you all, and most of you are probably already using it.

Introducing you to the amazing Body Lava in “Who Needs To Wear Clothes?!”  Yes, LaPazions, I cannot believe I’ve been sitting on this for a few months.  I had to try it out immediately – I mixed a bit of the product into my foundation, and honey, the glow-up is REAL.  Now listen, beauty lovers, I want to give you all a little inside tip – if you’ve always dreamed of having that glowing, dewy look, this is the product for you.  Why? Because it has this brilliant shimmer and gives your skin that kissed healthy glowing feeling.

 

Do you see what I am speaking of? I feel my skin is always glowing, but this adds that little something special, and it’s light and looks very natural. It doesn’t feel heavy or sticky, doesn’t have a heavy smell, and your Beauty Blender will work fabulously when applying your foundation.

I definitely feel this will look great even after my shower giving my skin that just kissed look, and, currently in this pandemic, I need a little sunshine to give my skin that sitting poolside touch.  Fenty has done it again with another great product, and I’m going to give Body Lava 10 stars out of 10; I look forward to hearing what you all have to say about this product.

 

XOXO!!

Style Hijacked By Covid

I know most of everyone has said their style has taken a major hijacking through this pandemic.  We went from posing and flaunting the hottest street style to rocking sweatshirts, sweatpants, no stilettoes but socks, furry slippers, and Uggs.

We went from this glamorous look above to something that most don’t even recognize.  With this being stated, there have been a handful of us that have fought to keep our style on point through this pandemic and are still trying to fight against the new uniforms that many have taken to:

Yup, the dreaded no style bonanza, the undone hair, and the unspeakable plain face no makeup rocking folks!! (dunt-dun-dunnnn!!) – WHHHHYYY!! Calm down, take a deep breath with me; I just had to give you my feelings as of late.  No need to panic, LaPazions, I am here to tell you that I haven’t fallen into the style bonanza trap, even though it’s been trying to catch me.  I guess you all are asking me how is it possible when your new office looks like this: Yes, this is a mini-view of my home office from all of the inventory, schedules, books, studio setup for my podcast, and any other thing that keep LaPaz up and running.  I have to say, I think more than ever, we need to have a little semblance of our normal atmosphere.  That semblance for me keeps me on top of my look, aka style game- each/every day – no matter if I’m in the house for days, weeks, or even months.  I need to feel like ME!!

I make sure I get up every day and get dressed as if I am headed out to my office.  I hold my mini photoshoot of myself, where I share what I’m wearing, beauty tips, new products that have come into my “office,” and anything that feels like I’m out and about.  I have new co-workers (family) who are doing their own thing and rocking their particular style, making them feel good.  I just had to make up my mind that I wouldn’t allow the pandemic to hijack my style nor set up shop in my wardrobe…

What exactly do I mean by setting up a shop in my wardrobe?  I refused to allow myself to order sweatpants and shirts; I was determined that my new look would consist of fabulous daywear, silk Kimono dusters, loungewear, cute tops that could even be transformed into mini dresses for the Zoom lunches, meetings, cocktail hours, you name it I am doing it.

I want to give myself a little boost each day and looked at it as a style challenge.  I love motivating my employees, friends, family, and anyone I come in contact with.  When I go out for the essential run, I make sure I have my makeup on, and my eyes are glamorous because wearing a mask puts the focus front and center on my eyes.  I smile under my mask and stay fashion-forward.  I say all this to help you all understand that even though we are living in very different times and things are so uncertain, keep doing the things that bring you joy, keep doing your hair, makeup, getting dressed up, or simply just not letting yourself be hijacked by this “new” normal as many like to call it.

 

XOXO!!

Review of Toofaced Cosmetics

Woo-hoo!! Yes, LaPazions, can I just tell you how excited I am to have received my products from the one-and-only Too Faced Cosmetics! The pink box came via my fabulous, always dependable UPS delivery person (he’s such a good guy).

20200901_175839

Every box comes with a personalized message from Founder Jerrod Blandino, which gives that special something to each delivery.  The message feels as though he is speaking directly to you.  I absolutely LOVE IT!!

Now, before I break down our fabulous box this is how it came to me

20200901_175927

I know, I totally almost lost it when I opened this box and saw all these stunning packed products.  LaPazions, sit back grab your note books and let’s get into this pink box of luxury!

We received the Too Faced HangoverRX Wash The Day Away detoxifying, Nourishing, and calming Pore-Purifying Gentle Foaming Cleanser. As you all know, I’m really an all-natural product user and stand behind my homemade skincare products, but I gave this facial wash a try and was taken by it.  Little note: I didn’t use it around my eyes per the instructions on the box, but, all and all, I was taken by this product. I ended up using my Olive Oil infused with Himalayan Sea Salt to remove my eye makeup and,  to go over my skin just too see if the product had removed all my makeup, which it did (See before and after pictures under the featured product)

After Washing My Face With Purifying Cleanser

I always follow-up with my favorite products from SMD Cosmetics my Saromae Snail Serum and INHYUNJIN ESSENCE AGE DEFYING SERUM

Then in our fabulous box, we received the Chocolate Gold Soleil Long-Wear Gilded Bronzer which was beautifully packaged and the compact is just as gorgeous20200901_22193420200901_221953

I love the light scent of chocolate, seriously what lady doesn’t like some chocolate? The Chocolate Gold Soleil – is made with 100% Natural Cocoa Powder and Real Gold, honey you know you are going to be glowing… This is like the ultimate chocolate dream in a cute little compact. I’m looking forward to featuring this product for one of our glam shoots. 

Next in our box, we got the LOVE FLUSH LONG-LASTING 16-HOUR BLUSH.  Okay, now this compact is giving me such a romantic feel, why you ask? Because it’s shaped like a heart a pretty pink heart at that… The name total gives it away the LOVE FLUSH gives you that rosy cheek like when you’re blushing from that first time your breath was taken away by a soft sensual kiss

20200901_22182320200901_221842

Do you feel the soft subtle flare of seduction? I mean look at this product the details are everything! You’ll blush all day and night, it’s fade-proof, smudge-proof, and keeps your cheeks perfectly flushed for 16 fabulous hours (Yesss!).  I am here for this pigment-rich, high-impact shade. The packaging states “That this product is a great color for any skin tone,” and I have to agree 100%.

Our last product that was in our box was the SWEET PEACH CREAMY PEACH OIL LIP GLOSS.  STOP THE PRESSES! This product right here is going to breathe life back into your lips LaPazions. Yes, I mean it has Peach Oil, Coconut Oil, and Vitamin E to give your lips the needed moisture they deserve:20200901_222113

LaPazions the other thing is it smells like fresh-picked peaches that are juicy and ripe.  You know like when you bite into a great peach it’s just everything, well that is this gloss and the cute little smiling peach on the top is too yummy if I may say so myself.

Well, Just as fabulous as the message in the opening of our box, is the statement in the bottom or as I like to say the closing of your box is by far the final piece de resistance from Jerrod:20200901_180043

A message that is empowering, uplifting, and celebrating your beauty!  Hands down Toofaced Cosmetics knows how to make you feel special each and everytime♥

Well, my fabs, I hope you enjoyed this product review and I cannot wait to hear your feedback if you tried any of the featured products, let me know what is your favorite or which one wasn’t.  As always continue to be safe, stay home, and always be fabulous!

XOXO!

Rimmel Haul of the Day

I know many of you have signed up to IPSY, Charm Box, or some sort of company that delivers beauty products to your front door.  Needless to say, so have we here at LaPaz, and we’ve got a boatload of merchandise.  Today’s article is about the Rimmel haul that we received… They sent several products and were going to break them down, let me show you what we got in this batch (not pictured is the Nail polish but, we’ll get to that later):

20200811_080617

Yes, so we received 2 Eyeshadow pallets; the numbers for them are listed on the product but, just in case you missed it, one is 004 Green Park & 016 Urban Flower.   I have to say when it comes to the colors, they are beautiful, and you just cannot wait to get your brushes into them.  NOW Wait, hold on before you get too excited.  When I went to try the products, I got my brushes out and started to apply the lightest shade on my entire eye, but the fall out on the pallet and on my face was over the top… It took a few applications to see the product, as well as the effect that I wanted. This has been the same for the rest of the colors, which for me, I have to tell you, I love when my shadows POP!! You don’t have to over apply, and they don’t have a ridiculous amount of fall out as these did.  In my personal opinion, this fell a little flat for me and didn’t give me a look I wanted to accomplish:

20200811_101557

Now let’s talk about my lipstick… Yes, loves this one is a definite keeper.  I don’t have a gloss under it, and it has this gorgeous shimmer and makes my pout look gorgeous!! The color is #214 – Firecraker, and it was a real Bang! Plus, the lipline they provided in 837 – Bare Brown is creamy and glides on without feeling dry or dragging.  I will purchase these two products again:

20200811_101545

Now, since Covid19 (insert sad face) I have not been able to go and get my nails done, and many of you know I always keep my nail popping and believe in bling and elaborate designs, which is my form of expression and art… (Old Picture insert here) :

e51c768cc046c444cd7d6231cf81a8e1

Needless to say; currently, my hands aren’t this fabulous, and all my nails have broken, and I look as if,  I’m rocking a child’s hand now but, (I digress)  the nail polish they sent with this haul is nice.  I don’t usually wear colors (as bright), I’m more into earth tones and a little darker and moody, but the pigmentation is excellent, and you don’t have to over apply for it to have correct pigmentation:

20200811_113308

 

20200811_113256

I think all and all, we made out well with the Rimmel haul, and we cannot wait to hear what you all thought of the products.  Just to run through the merchandise:

  1. NYC Rimmel Nail Polish 156 – Pink Champagne
  2. Rimmel Lipstick 214 – Firecracker
  3. Rimmel Lipliner 837 Bare Brown
  4. (2) Rimmel Eyeshadow Palettes 004 Green Park & 016 Urban Flower
  5. Rimmel Lipblam Juicy Peach
  6. Rimmel Vinyl Gloss
