Great Highlighters under $8!

Everyone loves a great find and I think these highlighters not only look great but have been getting good reviews and even better are super affordable!

You probably might have seen this one all over social media and them selling like hot cakes on Amazon but it is looking like Maybelline’s Master Chrome in “Molten Gold” is worth it! It is actually infused with reflective pigments that give a bold glow in a soft powder formula. Just look at the swatches for yourself: (check out my fashion IG too please and thank you- 😉 @mosquerastylesyou)

I do not know if you have heard or actually even tried e.l.f. cosmetics but if you have only seen them but not tried them you have to give them a try! I know their price tags for some may make you skeptical but there quality is actually good and some products can even be compared to more expensive brands for just about the same quality. That being said I am not completely surprised but pleasantly impressed to see their new highlighter (yes it has taken awhile since their last highlighter but it looks like its definitely worth the wait): the latest “Baked Highlighter” : “Apricot Glow” This peach color looks gorgeous and at this price of just $4 I just have to try it myself as well!

Newest Swimwear Collection

Not sure if the brand, Reformation, is in your radar but it should be now and I am sure you’re going to see more of it soon with their first swimwear collection release! This LA label has been in the game since 2009 and is known to be eco-friendly. Who wouldn’t like that right? They are also known for their cute and fairly affordable summer pieces but now, for the first time, they have added swimwear and I am loving it. In the same way they have made their summer pieces they are doing the same with their swimwear in that they are made out from actual recycled fabrics. Another thing I adore, the retro feel to their pieces!

Believe me if I could be able to afford it, I would want to have a-whole-nother wardrobe just for vintage clothing!! But for now I have collected some timeless pieces here and there. I even have a black and white polka dot high-waisted bikini with the top resembling how they used to wear it back in the day! I would love to add a couple of Reformation’s pieces to my collection as well!

Prices: The collection as a whole ranges from $78 to $148. You can order your favorite pieces on their site here

#MM MACXLauraLee and MACXGabrielZamora

Also going on at MAC, just in time for the Summer, MAC is collaborating with International beauty influencers! You may have seen their makeup videos, Laura Lee from Alabama and Gabriel Zamora, Mexican descent, from LA.

So Laura Lee’s special-edition lipstick “MAC x LarLarLee” is quoted to be a “universally flattering neutral-pink shade and matte finish.”

Gabriel Zamora’s special-edition lipstick “MAC x Gabriel Zamora” is a beautiful warm brown nude in a satin finish and is said to “bound to stun on women and men alike.”

Just look at these beautiful swatches:

Release date will be April 20th! And the price, each for: $17!

#FF VBXTarget is finally here!

Yes this awaited collaboration is finally here and I have pictures and prices of some of my already favorite picks! Her collection includes Womens (Plus sizes too!), Girls, Toddler, and Baby.

I do not even think I have to explain how Victoria Beckham is a fashion icon in her own right! Many must remember her music career as Spice Girls’ Posh Spice but she has long branched off from that field once she became a fashion designer. She actually started back in 2008 and since 2010 has become a NYFW fixture!

TBH I do not like everything she wears all the time but in general, I do like her style. Only thing I regret are the prices of her clothing line so naturally I was thrilled to hear that she was collaborating with Target! I wrote about it last year in October :) read it here.

But finally the day has come where I can see the prices of her pieces and I want to share it with you:

One of my immediate favorites was the gingham set which I personally loove and have to have :)

ginghamoutfit

The top is $30 and the pant is $30, totaling to just $60! (Plus sizes are also available and at same prices!)

peplumjacket35

Being a fan of peplum myself I automatically picked out this jacket and for just $35, I liked it even more!

I am a huge fan of black but once the weather gets warmer and we reach Spring and Summer, I wear lighter clothes :) and Victoria’s collection also offers that. This marigold colored top is beautiful and with the $26 tag price, it should make it to my closet soon lol

marigold26

 

I also love this orange romper here costing just $35, I see myself wearing this romper this Summer!

This striped poplin dress also looks like a great new classic type of dress, priced at just $35

Here are also adorable pieces for girls and toddlers: (she also has for babies) I absolutely love the gingham suit for little girls! The color is also too cute. (The set totals out to just $20!) The collared dress to the right is also cute, chic, and available in women! (They also have this dress in a beautiful blush pink color, each for $25)

 

You can see her other pieces here. Unfortunately we just have to wait a little more, until April 9th to make these pieces your own. I am thinking that this collection is going to sell out fast so best of luck shopping!

Happy Shopping

#FF LV X SUPREME!

So the rumors were true! They debuted on the runway during its fall 2017 men’s runway show just yesterday!

lvxs

For those that have always followed Supreme,  it has become the IT streetwear and now to see that they are making it big with this collabo, its a great thing to watch! Kim Jones, creative director at Louis Vuitton, called Supreme “a massive global phenomenon” and rightfully so.

Below are a few teases, and yes I say teases because come on, who would not want these accessories?! Yes this LV X Supreme collabo seems to cater more to accessories than apparel for now anyway (you never know what else may come out 😉 ) Quote me if you want to but you will see these all over the internet and selling platforms because people are going to be losing their minds over them!

So the answer to the question that I know you are all asking, when are they releasing them?! Bad and good? We have to wait til this summer!  It is said to be dropping on Monday, July 17th so make sure to mark your calendars!

#TBT Remember those Stan Smiths?

Remember seeing everyone and their mother wearing these? Lol Also remember my research in my previous post when they first got hot? Just found these for $30! (Ask me where!!)

Adidas, $75
Adidas, $75

Right when I was about to purchase a pair I started seeing way too many people wearing them do I refused to get them as well lol…if you didn’t get them either you may be happy to know that there are other cool Adidas sneakers that are just as great or even better at great prices! These also don’t just come in green they are also made in black and red!

Below are a few pairs that to me, in some ways resemble the same style (from highest to lowest):

gucci294
Gucci Web-Strip Trainers, $294
Adidas "Gazelle" $100
Adidas “Gazelle” $100
Adidas "Superstar" $100
Adidas “Superstar” $100

Denim Daze: Jean Dresses & Rompers

With denim shoes and denim purses you probably see a trend? It’s definitely all about denim! So I think its safe to say that its going to be “Denim Daze” for some time :) So starting today and for the next few weeks I will be focusing on different apparel all in denim!

I did some research and found some higher end brands but also find affordable prices that look pretty close to the same styles!! Below I will put them side by side! (Roll over each pic to see brand and price) Happy Shopping!

If you’re like me and love comfort just as much as you love fashion, then you may also love rompers. I absolutely love them! They are so comfortable yet can be so stylish! Here are a few that caught my eye

Great chambray jean dresses to look cute even with the hot weather out there!:

Great jean dresses that fit loose and comfortable but still look great!:

Great sexy jean dresses for those summer nights out!:

Great jean dress for transitioning from the summer to the late fall even!:

 

End of Summer Sale!

Along with the big Tom’s sale there also many other sales going on like Shopbop! They are having a big end-of-season sale. Yes I know, even typing that despresses me because I don’t even want to imagine the summer ending! But I guess that is the only one good thing coming out of the inevitable…Shopbop also has other tabs of other percentages off; 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and even 70% off! You definitely have to check their site out! (Click on pic to be sent directly)
