L’oreal’s Infallible Total Cover Foundation| Review

Hi guys, I know it’s been forever since my last time here. Let’s say I honestly lost my inspiration, and that sometimes happen. But today I made time to do a quick review on this foundation that I just emptied, and by the way I am so much more active on instagram: beautytime101dc

L’oreal has different foundations, and I love matte foundations so I was really drawn to this one. It says it last for 24 hrs, full coverage, and weightless feel.

I got my foundation from my local wal-mart store for about $10.00 I believe and I really had high hopes because I love a matte, full coverage foundation because I have some acne marks on my cheeks and some dark spots so I like to cover them up.


My skin is oily in some spots of my face, so I bake and spray my face to set it always no mater what foundation I use. With this foundation I feel it made me look extra oily and my face heavy at the end of the day. I work 8-10 hours a day and I have my makeup on for about 11 hours or so, and at first I hated it and stopped using it. Then I decided to give it another shot, because it had decent coverage  but this time mixed it with another foundation since I noticed it was a little too light for my skin. The next time I notice I started to break out, but I still don’t know the reason if its hormonal, stress, my dirty brushes(yes I was being lazy but finally cleaned them today).


My personal opinion I didn’t like it, it was not that bad but not my favorite. I have tried better foundations, but it would work better for people that don’t have oily skin, or just set it properly because I did noticed it lasted longer when I baked and used setting spray. Also when squeezing the makeup out from tube it looked like when you squeeze out old makeup I don’t know if that makes sense or if you’ve done it before but it looked dried out and stuck together if it makes any sense.I also think that there are better drugstore foundations! I also feel there are way more light shades in the collection.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette | Review

Hi guys, so I currently thinking about new posts to write and just get back on track with my  blog since having a 11 hr shift is basically my life right now.

So I recently got two new palettes, one of them is an oldie but kind of recent. I believe it was out a couple of months back and everyone was talking about it.



Too Faced, Sweet Peach palette retails for $49 on the website and Sephora. It is pricey if you ask me but if your like me that its rare that you buy expensive make up or high end eye shadow palettes, then once in a while does not hurt.

There are 18 super pigmented shadows, which some are shimmer and matte. I love the idea of the packaging and the color scheme, Too Faced seriously rocked it! There are other products for this peach collection like lip glosses and blush palette, and I recently saw that they might come out with more peach products.

Another interesting thing is that it literally smells like peaches, so every time I do my makeup I stop for a second to smell the palette.

I really hope you enjoy, and bear with me I want to update this blog and make it better. So its going to go through some changes. But if you want more reviews like this please like.

February Favorites | Beauty

Hi good night !
I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend tomorrow is Monday but it will be a great day. Since March is around the corner I decided to dedicate the beauty products I loved in February. I have only a few because I basically still love and use the ones from January so I saw no point of adding them for this month but if you missed it you can read it here.

So these are a few more I love, hopefully next month I find new products I love that I can share with you guys.

I have been using them ever since I got them which are the Kylie Cosmetics lip products I actually got a matte mini but I misplaced it oops. I like that they are gloss but not sticky…I usually just use mattes so it’s nice to wear a different finish. These are in the color Exposed and Literally(mini).

I also got the mini palette from the Valentines Collection in colors love letter and baby. Baby is a really pretty coral pink color which is perfect for coming up seasons and love letter is like a gold shimmer which is to die for and perfect to highlight on the inner corner of the eye. They are pigmented and worth the price !

This mascara I got because of James Charles the Cover Boy, I loved the idea of having a guy as a cover boy, I really like seeing guys doing makeup like Manny MUA which is my fav because they bring something different and fun.
I like the formula better than the brush because it hold my lashes a bit more than others and I really like it for my bottom lashes.

This product I have repurchased for the second time. One of the best concealer, and really affordable. It’s full coverage I like it to clean up my brows when I fill them in or to cover my acne marks or under eye. I have even used it as a base for bright shadows and it works good.

And last I really really like this foundation this is actually the high end foundation I have at the moment I usually have a drugstore for everyday and a higher end for weekends going out, partys, or just whenever I want more coverage. It’s waterproof, full coverage, and matte everything I look in a foundation. I don’t use it that much because I use my cover girl daily but I LOVE this one !

hope you enjoyed, ❤ didi

ps. I am working on a project which I would soon tell !


Highlighter Reviews!

Hi guys, hope you are having a great day. It’s Thursday so almost the weekend is here.

So I wanted to review and share with you the 3 highlighters I have in my makeup collection, I usually use two more but it depends on the look or day since they are different.


There are two drugstore highlighters and one higher end. I use mostly the JCat and L’oreal one the most. I tend to use the Becca x Jacklyn Hill one less but I use it more for special occasions or combine it with the JCat one.



The first one I got was the L’oreal one which I got from my local Walmart about $12 it suppose to be a highlighter and blush.I was expecting more out of it to be honest, but I do really like it for a inner eye glow and also in the cupids bow. Not so much for the cheeks I find that in that area it does looks chalky which is not cute. And I tend using more the side colors more than the pink ones.

The packaging is kinda cute with the rose gold, and I like how it looks just wish the formula was better



The pricey one I bought was the Becca x Jacklyn Hill ‘Champagne Pop’ I saw reviews and a lot of rave so I had to try it out. This products retails for $39 and I got mine at Sephora. I really was debating if I should get it or not. I seriously walked around Sephora for about 30min. At the end I decided to take it with me. I like it, it has a really pretty shimmer to it and its not chalky it really a natural glow.

.I like the quality and package of this product I feel you are getting what you payed for.



The last product is the most recent highlighter I bought which was in December. It’s from JCat and I got mine a local clothing store where I live for only $6.99 and its my favorite one so far ! I love that its so pigmented and you can layer to mae it look more glow or go with something more settle. I totally recommend it.


All the shades I have are different so it works as well whenever I want to change it up. What is your favorite highlight or which one do you recommend me to use next?

January Favorites !

Hi, hope you are having a wonderful day or night. I know I have been behind with my posts, I was suppose to upload more Valentines Day ideas, and did that happen….nope. I actually have all this week off from work which is really great even though I have done nothing, well I’ve been doing errands and things like that but I want to go on a trip.

I know I am 14 days late but I still want to post it, and share what I liked and was using all the time for the month of January. I also plan to upload a haul and the decor of my house for Valentine’s day since I never showed you guys.



These are the products that I used the most in the month of January.


Primer: Milani Foundation: Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous

I like to use primers sometimes and I have been using this one, and I don’t use it all the time. I feel sometimes I am more oily and it does not help all the time. So I am looking for a matte and pore minimizing primer, which one are you using?

For my current drug store foundation I am using this one from Covergirl and I feel like it has good coverage. And you can build it up also which is nice if you want more light days or a fuller coverage. I feel like it sometimes makes me look a little oily and I have to reapply powder or blot but other than that I really like it.


Maybelline: Fit Me Concealer LA Girl: Pro Concealer (orange)

I love the Maybelline concealer I use to use it before and stopped using it but I love the coverage it gives, it lasts a good amount of time. I do have to bake a little so it doesn’t make my under eye lines, but really good quality.

I have medium dark under eye circles, so I tried this correcting one in orange which I use under my eyes or anywhere I have dark spots. I really like it and I want to pick up other colors and I highly recommend it.


J Cat Highlight & Hard Candy Setting Spray

I just love this highlighter, I actually purchased it for Christmas because I needed some eyelash glue which I ran out and I was going to do my makeup, my sisters, my moms, and cousins so I needed eye lash glue. And I was looking at other products and I swatched this highlight and girrrrrrrrrrl let me tell you it was everything! I’ve planned to do a whole review on it so stay tune. It is really affordable and even better than higher end ones.

I sometimes feel my face too oily so I have to set it and I find it lasts more matte without me having to blot a lot. So I picked this up a couple of months ago and I stopped using it during the winter but I am back at it.


Salon Perfect Brow Pomade & DUO lash glue

I have been using this product ever since I started to fill in my brows I really want to try Anastasia products but I am trying to finish products I still have before buying more (really trying). But it is still really good, except I find it a little too dry so I add contact water in it and mix it and it becomes more smooth.

I have also been really into applying lashes and I really like this glue in the dark tone, I have used the white one but I feel this one works best.


Kat Von D(Lovecraft), MAC (Ruby Woo), & Colourpop(Trap & Rooch)

I love lippies its my favorite on makeup. Lately I have been using a lot of reds, Burgundy, and nudes. These have been some of my favorites, the Kat VOn D one is really matte and soft I really like it. The MAC one is my all time favorite red and I am planning on buying another one once I am done with this one, its a staple. And I love coloupop but these have been on my lips lately. I really like a matte lip rather than a glossy lip.



Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour palette & Huda Beauty Eye shadow palette

And the last items are two palettes I have been using lately. The first one is a contour palette, which I use a lot as you can see. Its the only contour palette I have so it does get a lot of love. And I don’t use blush that often so I usually just bronze my cheeks.

The other palette is the Huda Beauty Textured shadows Palette in Rose Gold edition which I did a review on and you can check it out here. My boyfriend actually got it for me and I really like it I tend to go for more natural neutral colors but I love that theres other colors and shimmery ones too.

I really hope you enjoy. I still plan on putting my Valentines day home decor before taking it off. And I am currently buying St. Patrick’s day decor can you believe it?

Good night, Didi ❤


ELF’s HD Powder | Item to Try

Hello fellow readers from WordPress.

So today is like my Sunday, but I got an extra day off which is great. Three days off instead of two !

But now as I am an “adult” I have adult things to do like errands and going to the doctor, which is what I did this morning. And I got there before 8am so I can be one of the first ones and the doctor got there almost 10am.

But anyways to the topic of today is a Item to try, I see that this is a popular topic in my blog. And I have a few from months ago if you guys want to check it out. (my recent ones: Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation, Colourpop: Mr. G, Hard Candy’s correcting concealer, LA Girl Liquid Lipsticks)

I like using powder when setting my foundation, not only to make it last longer and have that matte feeling, but also because I have oily skin. And I like a good powder that I don’t need to retouch every hour or so.


I found the ELF HD Powder at my local Walmart for about $6, and what caught my attention was that it has been compared to the Makeup Forever HD setting powder. I usually like to try a certain product from the drug store, then make my way up to higher end.

I personally haven’t had the chance to try any Makeup Forever makeup yet, but the powder is on my list.

I like this powder for setting my under eyes, setting my foundation, and baking. Baking has becoming a trend and I like to bake especially in areas where I get more oily or places I highlight…and also if I have an event that I need more glam.


The powder comes in three different shades, pink, yellow, and sheer one. I have only used the sheer one but I would like the try out the rest.

I have bought this product twice already so I believe I can give you a better review.

I like the feeling of the powder on my face, it feels silky and soft. Good packing, great price for such a good product that I would re-purchase. I really don’t use the cushion that comes with it I usually use a flat top brush to set my makeup. The only thing I don’t like from this product is that I wish it had a bit more product. I usually run fast on it, maybe a month or month and a half depending on my makeup.

Rate: 10/10

I recommend it honestly, Elf has great products and really affordable. I have seen dupes from higher end products that Elf has. So next time your on the look for a new setting powder check this one out!

I’m on the search for a new powder my second Elf HD run out again, any suggestions?

Have a wonderful Monday ❤ Didi


HUDA BEAUTY: Textured Shadows Palette Rose Gold Edition

Hi guys, happy Sunday. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Today I bring you a review and my thoughts on this beautiful palette. I have been deciding on getting it for a while because it is a splurge. But come on it has beautiful colors and you can’t have enough mate and shimmer shadows.



The packaging is cute, with Huda’s eye on the front and the logo. I like the idea of the package. Once you slide the palette out you see the shadows right away. I like the idea of neutral colors but a bit of color as well, perfect to create different eye looks.

The brand HUDA Beauty has different products not just this palette. 18 gorgeous shadows, 7 shimmer shadows and 11 matte. They are pigmented and creamy which I love!


Even the shadows names are cute (from left to right): Dubai, fling, 24k, rose gold, trust fund, angelic, #blessed, bossy, flamingo, sky, bae, , moon dust, black truffle, suede, coco, maneater, henna, and sandlewood.


This is my best attempt to swatch the shadows. Again from left to right. I like the colors especially the sparkly ones just o add something else to a eye look. I haven’t really played with the palette yet but I have used shy which is like a pink-soft coral color, henna as well which is like a cool brown, sanalwood which is a light brown and moon dust which is like a champagne color which I love for the inner corner of the eye.


I recommend it if you want to spend money on a decent palette or want a different palette from the ones you already have. I recommend to have it in your makeup collection.

I will be posting my schedule for posting if interested what day to come back and read something you’ll interested in. Plus it will be easier for me to know what to post.

Thanks ❤ Didi
