Neutrogena, Skin Clearing Blemish Concealer

Hello everyone, maybe most of you guys don’t know, but I’ve been dealing with acne for quite a big portion of my life, ever since I was a teenager, now I’m 23 and here I am, still dealing with acne. I been trying a lot of products to help me get rid of my acne, and I still haven’t had any success, until know, that I feel like I am going in the right track for finally getting rid of my acne and so I feel like I am finally able to speak about it, and give you guys some of my own tips that have been helping me, and they may help you too.

If you have acne, you know it’s better to not put anything on it, let it breath and let it heal by itself, but, what do you do when you need to go to school? or work? or maybe going out? or even worst what about taking pictures!?. Even though you know that putting makeup it’s not good, you still put it on, in fact, you pile it on and that just makes things worst for your skin and the never ending circle of pimples and breakouts begins.

Jen, gave me this Concealer once and I was like, ok let’s give it a try and guys, that was the best thing I did. This concealer helps with all the embarrassed that it’s caused by acne, and helps with cover in it and while it’s doing the job makes a second job witch is healing the damaged skin and also helps with getting rid of your acne. So in a few words, this thing it’s good stuff!.

Now that I rambled on and on about acne and stuff, lets jump right into the more in depth review

What does this product claims!? Well this is what the packaging says:

  • Blemish Treatment with Salicylic Acid
  • Conceals and treats blemishes
  • Natural looking coverage


What do I have to say about this claims?

Just so you guys can have a little background on my skin: I have normal to oily skin with some dry patches around the edges, I get and sporadic pimple mostly on my checks or forehead, but recently my skin have been crazy and I have a hole bunch of pimples on my checks (sad face), this being said!

I agreed with the fact that treats and conceals my breakouts because since I’ve been wearing this my pimples seem to been reducing a lot, I mean I still have them but they are noticeable gone and better looking. here’s a before and after photos they are 10 days apart, what so you think about this results!? I will let you be the judge. Natural looking coverage? yes and no! How is that? you may ask, well, that’s because I found out that for me it’s best if I don’t wear foundation underneath because you can tell the concealer it’s there, in the other hand I have to give it the benefit of the doubt because if it is an acne treatment well you are only supposed to use that product, right? because you want it directly in touch of your skin problem right? so I like to use it alone and put a little bit of powder foundation to keep it in place and cover any other thing that I might need to cover like redness. Blemish Treatment with Salicylic Acid, Well it does says on the ingredients that it, and it is a good treatment, so that’s also true.


Before and After Photos?!?!?

The Down Side of product!?: The dispenser looks very unhygienic, so try to not touch your affected areas with the dispenser sponge to help it keep it clean and bacteria free; another thing I also didn’t like was that you get really little product and the twist thing, witch I’m not that big of a fan of it, but regardless of those inconvenient it’s a good product and It has been working a lot for me.  So and OVERALL I’ll give a 4 Stars to this product because, I really love it because of what it does for my face.

 Hope you guys find this helpful, feel free to give us any comments we love all the feedback and you can also tweet us @teamglamitupp

How to: Bold, Sexy Lips

Red: The color of passion, the color of love and It’s probably the sexiest color around and when painted on your lips, it’s dynamite..

Wearing red lipstick it’s so simple but yet so tricky, not all of the shades of red are a perfect fit for everyone, maybe you even think that you are not able to pull off a red lipstick look because it looks funny or weird on your lips, maybe it just means that you haven’t been wearing the right shade or you still haven’t found it. Don’t worry we got everyone covered.

Let’s start

If you have pale skin with neutral to peachy undertones the best way to go with a red lipstick is one that is matte and that slightly errs on the side of orange tones.. one of our faves on this category of color is: NARS Lipstick in “Red Lizard”. 

Pale Skin with yellow undertones, a good red match for this type of gals is a warm brick-red lipstick color, remember people with yellow undertones don’t get really flattered with pinks, remember to always keep that in mind.. the one we recommend for this type of people is: Clinique High Impact Colour in “Sassy Spice”


Beige Skin, sun-kissed skin with reflections of gold, it’s perfect to wear a dark, deep red with gold undertone, in fact many well-known makeup artist like Raychel Wade, says that this is one of those shades that can work with all skin tones. So Why not give it a try!? Wade, also recommends: NYX Black Label Lipstick in Black Cherry.

Bronze Skin Tone, this lucky ladies that were born with this beautiful bronze complexion can wear just about anything. With a warm undertone and Peachy cheeks, a bright bold coral-y red lipstick will work beautifully. What do we recommend? well if you are lucky and have this type of skin you definitely need to try the Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in “Coral Glow” 


Got Bronze Skin Tone With Olive undertones!? We also got you covered for this gals a combination of cherry/pink/red lipstick goes beautifully with that bronze, golden-y skin of yours. And for you girls we recommend the Chantecaille Lipstick in the color “Cayenne” 


Dark Skin with natural gold undertones, works perfectly with a matte orange/red this helps with keeping it all in the same warm family for guy ladies we recommend: Rouge pur couture the mats in the color “Orange Imagine” You guys will love it.

Deep Dark Skin you gals can wear cool blue based shade and works even better when you carry it through the rest of the makeup (shadows, blush..) we suggest for you guys to try the lipstick made by La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in “Velvet” 


I you have any extra tips that you feel like sharing, please let us know in the comments down below! Also if you have a favorite brand and color that works well with your skin tone, be sure to share that as well.

DIY Hair Masks for Dry & Damaged Hair

Damaged hair!?? We’ve all been there… Have you been felling that your hair is a little rough, and at the ends is looking all brittle?!? Maybe you’ve been using a lot of heat on your hair, or you’ve been getting your hair colored very often?.. but anyhow, at the end of the day your hair feels damaged and dry, after all of the things you put your hair through.

 To repair all of the damage, and have an amazing hair that looks and feels good to the touch, here are 2 DIY masks that you can try at home, and improve your hair health. These are our Holy Grail Hair Mash, and you’ll love them as much as we do.

Let’s Start..

Coconut Oil Hair Mask

 Coconut oil, not only smells wonderful and delicious, but is also a lightweight moisturizer for your hair, so it leaves you hair not only smelling amazing, but feeling great and does not weight the hair down, this are the main reasons why we love, Coconut Oil.<3

 What You’ll Need: 

  • 1 Cup of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil

What to do with the ingredients!? (AKA Directions)

  1. Combine the Olive Oil and the Coconut Oil in a bowl and mix it well
  2. Apply the mixture to your hair, concentrating at the ends of the hair
  3. Create a Top Knot, and cover it with a shower cap.. Here comes the tricky part when you wear a hair mask you usually leave it for about 20 to 30 min, but our little tip and twist is that you need to leave the mask for the whole entire night and rinse it out at morning, so you can achieve the best results you can
  4. Rinse it out in the shower.
  5. Shampoo the roots of the hair and then condition as usual, or you could wash your hair before doing the mask, and just rinse out and skip shampoo for more moisture. 


Milk And Honey Mask

This is a really simple and easy mask but yet really powerful with it’s moisturizer properties, because by using Milk, we expect to have a hair that it’s waaaay more softer to the touch and The Honey has a lot of moisturizing properties, this is why it’s very important in a homemade hair mask, especially if you have dry dull hair. The function is that it has restorative properties that adds moisture to lifeless dry hair, making it glowing and really lustrous.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Glass of Milk
  • 2 Tbsp of Honey (Not Agave or anything like it)

What To Do?:

  1. Mix the ingredients in a big glass, until they are really well blended. (put them on a blender if it’s necessary)
  2. Massage it into your hair from root to tip and leave it on for 10 to 15 min
  3. Rinse with warm water and shampoo as usual
  4. Make sure to not get any bees on your hair (Juuuuuuuust kidding, Or maybe not (= !  )

What are your guys’ thoughts on these amazing masks!? Did they worked for you? Have you ever tried one of these DIY masks? Do you make any of your own hair masks at home? Tell us in the comments! and remember the most important thing.. HAVE FUN! :)<3

Love, Jenny
