Review: MEGA PROTEIN by Wet N’ Wild

Hi there you guys, I went to the Drugstore one of this days and of course, I came across “The Makeup Aisle” and I started looking for mascaras, and I noticed that there are a lot of mascaras out there ranging from very expensive such as $15 (come on! that’s expensive for drugstore!) going all the way down to very cheap such as $2. When I saw this $2 Price tag, I was like, no way! that must be the worst mascara, ever I grab it started reading the packaging and then I thought to myself maybe this is not that bad, and I might need to try this mascaras and break the stigmas we have around cheap thing not being great,

Long story short, I went ahead and got the MEGA PROTEIN Mascara by Wet N’ Wild in the water-proof formula in the color very black. IMG_0874

The Product Claims:

  • PARABEN-FREE
  • NOURISHES YOUR LASHES
  • SOY PROTEIN FORTIFIED
  • ENRICHED WITH ACAI OIL
  • LASH CONDITIONING

My Thoughts:

  • I love the curl that It gives to my lashes and they stay up all day (that might have to be with the water-proof formula).
  • Applies very easily with no clumps and it won’t live you with spidery lashes if you put 2 coats.
  • Separates lashes, giving a filling effect
  • I love the fact that we have so many nourishing and fortifying elements going into this formula, that I have noticed that my lashes don’t get as damage as if I would use any other water-proof formula, they are less dry and they haven’t got any thinner with me using this mascara, and I’ve been using it for 2 weeks straight.
  • How does it take off!? Well it’s definitely not as easy as if you would be wearing a regular formula. I find that I have to use 2 cotton balls in order to take the entire product of my eyes
  • The down side!? They give you very little product, but once again, you only pay like 2$ so I guess it’s fair.

DEMO

For the DEMO, I took pictures of me in different parts of the application process, so you can see the actual performance of the mascara itself, and for that reason, I am only wearing mascara, foundation and a neutral blush; and totally avoid any kind of distracting colors such as, eye shadows and glitter off my face.

Finally, I totally recommend this product, I think it’s so worth the try, you get so much overall for so little money. I ended up very happy with this purchase and I will totally repurchase this whenever I ran out of it.

Hope this review was helpful for you guys, let me know your thoughts, suggestions, requests, also let me know if you have any questions regarding the product. Don’t forget to share it with your peeps and give us your feedback! until next time! muah!

January Favorites 2015 + LIFESTYLE FAVES!

Wow Guys! The fist month of 2015 already passed, it actually felt like it flew by us, and so this means it’s time for January Favorites!

This month I focused a lot in my skincare, body care and hair care, I realize when I was gathering my favorite products of the months that I only had 3 makeup items to share in this month’s favorites blog. This being said… I’ll show you the pictures to my January favorites, I’ll also list them by category  after the pictures and If you guys are interested in any of the products and want a review or DEMO or anything on it please just let me know, in the comments or twitter or in any of the links of our contact section.

I also want to explain that I’m not going over every single item, because I thought that it would be a hassle to read a super long blog post, and plus I also have reviews or mini reviews in some of the products, so I really hope you guys can understand me and enjoy!

Mini Haul: Forever21

I know, I know what you are gonna say! another haul Allie!? Yes you guys, another haul! but this time it’s a little one, an a little random and funny story, lol. First of all let me just tell you that I got 5 tops for an amazing deal at Forever21, I order it online, got free shipping, discount and everything. I got my shipment in two packages, and in the first one I got a blue, baggie top with crew neck that looked like this and I lost it! lol, What!? Did you lost it really!? hahah yes I did! I have no idea how, or where and I looked every where and I can’t find it! #fail!

But, Anyways the rest of my shipment came in today and I got so exited, and I took pictures for you guys to share them on this blog. By now you know that if I really like a clothing item I will get it in different colors, lol, and I kinda did that again this time with this beautiful sweater that I purposely got on a Medium Size cause I wanted it to be baggie and long, and I even think that I could’ve gotten away with the Large size, but I still love the fitting. Its really comfortable, cozy and warm I wish they had more colors, lol.

PicMonkey CollageI also got this long sleeves T-shit in the color Oatmeal, that I cannot wait to wear it during the spring time, or layer it for this winter ❤ I love it. IMG_0691

And last I got this Coral Sweater? Shirt? Sheer Top? Idk, I’m so confused by it, its really sheer, it also has tiny pattern holes in it, it’s not warm at all; Don’t get me wrong I like it, but maybe not for this time of the year, I honestly was expecting for this to be more warm. but hey! I can rock it in spring and summer! lol.

Covergirl + OLAY “The De-Puffer”

Covergirl olay depufferMy most recent purchase has been this little guy, and I decided to give it a try after I saw it on MissGlamorazzi’s video, where she uses this particular product and I figured, why not give it a try!? it looks cool, what do I have to loose? So I went ahead and order it online and I have been using this concealer religiously ever since I got it, and so here are my thoughts on it, Enjoy!.

I love so much when Covergirl and OLAY team up and create a new product, it’s always so exiting to try, I know when creating this line of products they might think that the target audience will be mature woman. This being said I know that it might sound weird how much I love this line. What makes this makeup line so wonderful is the actual fact that it’s targeted for this audience; these type of skins are constantly needing extra moisture, a filler consistency to diminish the appearance of age and fine lines, this is what makes this makeup line more hydrating on the skin, leaving a silky finish on a younger skin. So I think it’s safe to address how much I really like the formula, I also think it works wonders on the under eye area, leaving a smooth finish and avoiding dryness.

Second thing, “The Metal Tip” I am honestly not the biggest fan of it, but I also don’t hate it, although, I think I do hate it when I’m doing my makeup around 6AM since the tip gets so cold, but once again it works why the De-Puffing effect that you are looking for. I still have mixed feelings with the coldness of the metal tip, though, lol but it works!

Overall, I give this concealer 4.5 Stars out 5, since I think, it’s a great product, great formula, and I does fulfill it’s purpose, and I may also add that it’s slowly becoming one of my fave concealer of all times.

Hope You all liked it, don’t forget to comment and share!                 XX. Allie, TeamGlamItUp

Haul: Hair Care, Skincare, American Eagle, BCBG, and more…

Hey Guys! Happy New Year! May all of your wishes and resolutions come true this 2015, and let us be next to you this 2015! Well… You guys now how after Christmas time and the end of the year, the stores come out with this insane and amazing deals, right!?. Well I took advantage of that and I got this collective haul to show to you guys, I’m so exited with everything I got also my Birthday was a few days ago and I got quite a few goodies that I want to share with you, so let’s jump right in.

First off, I went to CVS, they were having amazing deals, such as, get $20 worth of this brand of products and get $10CVS dollars back, which I actually thought it was amazing (if you are very specific with the person who’s ringing you up) with this promo I got a few products for free, and I love them also.

First thing I got was the “11222Aveeno Positively Radiant line” in which I got the daily scrub, a night repair cream, and the daily moisturizer. I was looking for the matching toner, but I couldn’t find it at the store, I wonder if they even have it on the line!, lol. Any who, I’ve been using this products for a little over a week maybe roughly 2, and I love them so far, If you guys want a more in depth review of each one or any specific product let me know in the comments down below or twitter, I’ll be more than happy to do so.

After I was done with my skincare shopping I went ahead into the haircare section, since I was meaning to get a good deep repairing mask, anyways, and I came across this Sulfate-Free line by L’oreal. Andsdfasdf asd previously to that I was reading a lot about how really bad sulfates are for our hairs and how we strip down our cuticle, leaving our hair dry, and with split-ends.

In this line you have a lot of options to choose from, according to the needs of your hair, they have a line for damage hair, for colored treated hair, dry hair, curled hair, and so on.. I decided to get the Oil Infusion because I thought that, this particular line was the one that met my hair needs, and just as preview of the review, I think I found my new Holy Grail Hair Care Products so far (I’ll go more in depth in a Blog Review, that will come very soon so stay tuned).

Moving on to clothes… I got a few things for myself and received another ones as Birthday presents so this is more like a lot’s of events collecting haul. If you guys know me at all by now, you know how much I love sweater and long sleeves shirts, and I got quite a few of those, let me share it with the following…

From left to right starting with the blue sweater by BCBG, a sweater with and angled end it’s so comfy and perfect for layering or wearing it on it’s own. Next one it’s an American Eagle, waffle sweater; so soft to the touch and incredibly comfortable to wear, I got this one online and at first I thought I was getting a black sweater and when I got it I finally realized it was dark gray instead. Actually, turned out perfectly  since it’s a lot more easier to combine with the rest of my clothes and perfect to add any pop of color.

Last one but not least it my, what I like to call “business in the front, Party in the back Sweater” since it has this sheer material at the back, that I think it will be so much fun to pair it with some leather jeans or something, what do you think!? leave a comment down below!bussinesinthefrontpartyintheback

Another big obsession of mine are scarves and they can not go missing on my hauls, I got a Red Infinity Scarf by American Eagle and I got the green scarf as a Gift, that I made myself as an infinity scarf (Do you want a tutorial on it!?) I totally love these new scarves an I cannot stop wearing them, lol. Scarvesafhhfaf

And the last tree things I got are big!, lol at least for me they are, I got a pair of dark brown boots from American Eagle, they are so comfortable to walk in and the fit it’s perfect, I also got a coat also by American Eagle and OMG you guys it’s the comfiest coat ever, and the warmest I feel so secure every-time that I leave the house with my coat on, I now I’ll be warm for sure, I love it and highly recommend it for really cold winters! And last I got a Purse from Just Fab, I had this amazing deal and discounts that I only ended up paying like 10 bucks, and I think it was the greatest steal from my shopping haul.
