ūüćĎ #MM It’s all “Peachy” ūüćĎ

You may have noticed how its all about Peach nowadays. I did not post through the holidays but I still noticed how much of “Too Faced’s Sweet Peach Palette” I saw in the makeup world! Too Faced released this palette to go along with the rest of their Sweet Peach collection. Just before the holidays they also added a highlighting palette, blush, and lip oils all infused with the actual fruit, like the palette. This palette actually came out earlier this year (on March 17th on their site to be exact) but its recently that I have been seeing it more in makeup videos (getting into eye makeup more just recently) and now their $49 palette is still their “number-one fastest-selling product.”

Shadows from left to right: “White Peach”, “Luscious”, “Just Peachy”, “Bliss Her Heart”, “Tempting”, “Charmed, I’m Sure”, “Nectar”, “Cobbler”, “Candied Peach”, “Bellini”, “Peach Pit”, “Delectable”, “Peaches N’ Cream”, “Georgia”, “Caramelized”, “Puree”, “Summer Yum”, and “Talk Derby to Me.”

 

Kylie Cosmetics also released their “Royal Peach Palette”

What makes Kylie’s palette different from Too Faced? My personal favorite color: Royal Blue! I was actually considering getting “Sweet Peach” ever since a friend showed me hers, they smelled amazing and it even tasted peachy! Seriously we tried it LOL

When is it releasing?: January 12th 3PM PST that is 6PM EST so mark your calendars

Pantone’s Color of the Year!

On December 8th, Pantone announced the Color of the Year and it is…

pantone-greenery

Yea..I was a bit surprised as well…but well why Greenery?

“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront Рit is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”

By just reading their description, really makes you feel the Essence of Greenery huh?!

For those who are wondering about what is the Pantone Color of the Year and what is the big deal about it is, a little recap; The Pantone Color Institute, basically the global authority on color, selects a symbolic main one every year, “a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” They also pick other colors for their palette. Believe it or not, their picks do effect your life more directly than you think. Once they pick a color its like you instantly see more of it everywhere! Whether you see it trending more in apparel, home decor, and even in most weddings of the year! Yes, this happens every year and since I have started my own site, I have tried to stay on top of this and keep you up-to-date on it. In celebration of their picks I also put their colors on my site ūüėČ

Hope this upcoming year of 2017 is as fresh and hopeful as even Pantone sees it to be!

Best wishes, XO

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

HBD

Yes thanking God for another year! Today is my birthday and I will be celebrating with close family and friends! I am looking to do something different for my birthday so I will be traveling to another place that I have never been to before! For this reason I will be taking a break next week. If I have some time, you may catch some updates on my IG account @MosqueraStylesYou…stay tuned for more updates and pics :)

Unicorn Tears Lipstick!

Ever since the release of Unicorn Tears and how crazy we all went over it. Seems like the makeup world has seen it as well and now is coming up with a unicorn-themed lipstick. i am loving this as well! The well-known company, Too Faced, known for their famous “Better than Sex” mascara (I personally love it) and their now well-sought after “Sweet Peach” palette, is now making their own Unicorn Tears lipstick.

“Unicorn Tears” (Iridescent Shimmer) $22

Just look at these beautiful swatches. I like the fact that it is not too over-the-top yet very Unicorny at the same time! It seems to have has a bit of pinkish, purplish, and bluish colors, it looks great over naked lips and looks to even work great over other lipsticks too! It even looks like this can also be used on your eyes or even as a highlighter, talk about multi-functional!

Beautiful iridiscent shimmer!
Beautiful iridescent shimmer!

You can find this beautiful lipstick in their official Too Faced site,¬†Ulta, even HSN.¬†I predict that they will sell out fast so if you don’t catch it now then you can definitely find people selling it (at higher prices so be prepared) on eBay and Amazon.

“Mobile Wednesday”

ebay

You can take place of something that will become a part in history just like “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”! eBay is trying to invent “Mobile Wednesday” to target people right before Thanksgiving this Thursday; more specifically, those people riding in¬†the car while on their way to the house of destination for Thanksgiving dinner! eBay plans to release a bunch of¬†discounts like¬†Samsung‚Äôs new Galaxy Tab A 8.0 Wi-Fi tablet with 16 GB of storage for $99 and Klipsch X11 noise isolation headphones for $79.99.

So let’s see if it catches on! Happy Shopping!

Cheetos Jewelry?!

Yes you have read correctly! Yes this actually exists. I of course had to check this, what seems to be a silly but real thing, out only to discover that Cheetos had more than what I can even imagine! You can click here to see their products like onesies, perfume, and even makeup, an actual bronzer! But what surprised me more was the jewelry, “Eye of the Cheetah” set to be exact. The set includes these earrings and ring but you won’t believe the price, $20,000!

cheetah

The set includes a “18k yellow gold ring¬†and earring set¬†that highlights the¬†magnificent tail of yours truly.¬†The ring features¬†a¬†lavish orange sapphire,¬†carat weight¬†4.77, while each earring boasts matching orange sapphires,¬†total carat weight 2.89. The entire set¬†is encrusted with over 190 black and white diamonds,¬†total carat weight¬†3.0.¬†This set is truly one of a kind. Seriously, there‚Äôs not another set in the world, and there very well may never be. You will¬†be the envy of the universe with Eye of the Cheetah from¬†the¬†Chestora Collection.” This may all be why the price is so high! Even more of a surprise some of Cheetos items are sold out like this “Eye of the Cheetah” is actually out of stock.
