#MM New Highlighter Alert!

There have been rumors of Rihanna coming out with her very own makeup! Well just recently she was seen wearing it for the first time, in this pic below during the Fenty Puma pop up shop event in LA this past week! She herself said that “It’s mine, it’s a secret until September!” when asked which highlighter she was wearing. (Please check my fashion & beauty Instagram for the video!)

Welcome Rihanna into the makeup world; The  Fenty Beauty line will officially be a part of the makeup world in September! The first place you will be seeing Fenty Beauty will be at a Sephora near you!

From the video, the highlighter that Rihanna had on that day seems like a pinky pearlescent. I also have a picture of a teaser of what their lip color may be! Any more updates that I find out about I will be letting you ladies know so stay tuned! []

 

#MM More “Melted” Lips!

For those that know me, know that I am a lipstick addict and that my absolute favorite is liquid lipstick! I, however, just recently (like earlier today!) became acquainted with this brand’s liquid lipstick. First one I get to try, “Lady Balls” lolol just in time for “A Day Without a Woman” protest! “A Day Without a Woman” protests are this Wednesday, March 8, 2017! I will be writing more about this on the day of and I will also be posting on my Instagram so make sure to follow me @MosqueraStylesYou

#MM Love Lights!

You, like many others, may be going crazy since the teasers Too Faced has released of their “Love Lights Prismatic Highlighters”! I know I am, especially since I made more research on them!

Other than obvious reasons, what makes these highlighters so special? According to Too Faced, “Unlike traditional pressed highlighters that crush the pearls, our innovative technology keeps the pearls spherical so they will reflect light from any angle.” (!) Also just look at their beautiful packaging!

The shades, clockwise: “Blinded by Light” (Champagne), “You Light Up My Life” (Gold), and “Ray of Light” (Rose Gold)

On top of all this great news, these beauties are just $30! Have thye made it to your “neeed to buy” list yet? Lol I have talked about how they were planned to be released on March 9th on Too Faced’s site and at Sephora. (Shhh I may have heard that they are actually going to do an early release for tomorrow! Let’s see! Follow my Instagram @MosqueraStylesYou for more up-to-date updates!)

And if you haven’t already been exposed to enough pretty, check out this special “Natural Love Set”!!: (courtesy of co-founder, Jerrod Blandino)

Remember me teasing about a Kylie Pop-Up shop coming soon to NYC!? Well it is happening and its happening sooner than later! So save the date because it is on Monday, February 13th at and they are opening their doors at 10am til 9pm

This opening is just in time for Valentine’s Day! So if you weren’t able to snag some of her latest, limited edition items you might get another chance at the shop. Along with beauty items, the store seems like they are also selling apparel with the word “Thick!” everywhere.

Soo what do you ladies think?? Please comment below:

#MM Are you an #Activist or a #Dreamer, a #Peacemaker or a #Visionary?

You may be wondering what’s the deal with the title but its one of the many questions that came to mind when I learned about the positive names that this brand is using on their lipsticks! Hourglass Cosmetics just launched a lipstick line called “GIRL” but it is more than just a lipstick line, it seems like a whole movement celebrating you guessed it, the “GIRL”, or the Woman (whichever you prefer)!

This “GIRL Lip Stylo” line seems to not have come around at a better time, this weekend with The Women’s Marches happening at Washington, here in my hometown, NYC, LA, Toronto and all over the world! Now is the best time to come together and remember how powerful we are! Using the hashtag, #GIRLFORGOOD Hourglass is encouraging everyone to recognize the good in ourselves!

march

Each of these GIRL Lip Stylos are $32 and are said the feature the “color intensity of a lipstick fused with a luxurious blend of shea butter, jojoba, mimosa and sunflower seed for softer, fuller lips. The silky formula glides across lips for a second-skin feel with a lustrous finish.”

hourglass

The 20 shades are “Peacemaker” (a peachy nude) “Idealist” (a honey nude) “Futurist” (a mauve nude) “Believer” (a peachy beige) “Dreamer” (a peachy pink) “Creator” (a soft pink nude) “Seeker” (a pinky rose) “Activist” (a neutral rose) “Achiever” (a deep mauve) “Influencer” (a deep rose beige) “Inventor” (a soft rose) “Explorer” (a soft pink coral) “Leader” (a vivid fuchsia) “Lover” (a vibrant red orange) “Innovator” (a neutral red) “Icon®” (a blue red) “Visionary” (a brick red) “Protector” (a rich berry) “Liberator” (a deep berry) and “Warrior” (a deep plum)

Little TB: Are the Unicorn Tears extinct?

Little throwback for Tuesday, remember the famous Unicorn Tears?! I actually missed out in buying them when they were selling because of such a high demand even for wait list but I didn’t give up! I eventually got it and I am so happy I did even more so now that I know that they will no longer be making it the same way :( Sorry, I do not like to be the bearer of bad news but yes the original “Unicorn Tears” is extinct and instead their “permanent edition” will be named “Unicorn Essence.” This one looks the same in same bottle & color but formula not-so-much. So, unless you are willing to fork out more than half of the original price at eBay or Amazon you pretty much missed out in this magical face serum + primer

 

essence

I have been waiting for them to announce the day but the estimated launch time will be as soon as next month so as soon as I know the exact day & time, I will definitely let you ladies know! Also follow my Instagram for more @MosqueraStylesYou

Unicorn Tears?!

Happy Hump Day! You may not be feeling so happy about it (even though the weather was beautiful in NYC today :) ) but I definitely have something that will make you instantly happy! You may have seen them all over Instagram already, the makeup tutorial babes showing you how they do their makeup. You may have noticed that they put a serum under their eyes to remember tears and you may have also noticed a few quick seconds of a purple bottle.

Well, you know me I just have to do my research so I did and have found out that this cute little purple bottle is called “Unicorn Tears” from Farsali. Farsali is a great brand, I purchased their Rose Gold Elixir which I love!

Their Rose Gold Elixir was a huge hit as the IT moisturizing beauty oil when it first came out so you can just imagine how it’s going to be for this one! I mean who wouldn’t want to have Unicorn Tears!? While named after the great mythical creature, they can’t blame my high expectations for this serum! This skin enhancing antioxidant serum is said to be more than a moisturizing oil but also as a primer for the face and eyelids. According to the ingredients, it is oil-free and free of sulfate and parabens, and ultimately great for all skin types. Oh and if you are like me and wondering what it smells like, Unicorn Tears will smell like the Ylang-Ylang flower.

unicorntears

How much is it?? Unfortunately they are not revealing the price right now until the launch date. But going by their two other serums range from $37-$70 so I am sure that the new one should be somewhere around that price.

How can you get it?? “Unicorn Tears” is available for pre-sale here on December 7th! If you are already going crazy trying to figure out what to get everyone this Christmas (me, usually every year) and do not have it in your budget to get yourself something big, treat yourself to a little something like this skin-enhancing, multi-use serum & primer! It should come just in time to make it under the tree for you!

UPDATE: I have some good news and some bad news, bad news is that Farsali is postponing the pre-order date of December 7th “due to shortage in Unicorns.”  They fear that they won’t be able to reach everyone before the holidays. So the  estimated time of availability will be closer to the end of January. Good news, this is no longer a limited edition product!! So no worries!
