A lovely surprise | Rimmel Apocalips review and more!

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to review these lippies everyone is talking about, the new Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquer.
As I don't live in the UK or the US it get's a little hard to find these stuff so I was just wishing they would someday arrive to Buenos Aires. 
I first saw them at Fleur de Force's youtube channel and I fell in love with the vibrand red one! So some weeks ago, a beauty blogger called Vicky from Northern Blush blog was doing a giveaway of these two lippies and I won! I was pretty much jumping in my chair at work, I never win anything!
The moment I got the package I got shocked, this stuff is amazing, see them by yourself :)

Hola a todas! Hoy quería mostrarles estos labiales que recién salieron en Europa, los nuevos Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquer.
Como todas saben es bastante complicado comprar cosas nuevas online pero tuve mucha suerte de ganar un giveaway que hizo una amiga blogger Vicky de The Northern Blush.
Estos labiales son increíbles, veanlos ustedes mismas!

Make up and Skincare Wishlist 2013

Since all of us are beauty junkies and we are probably thinking about getting more products every day, I believe it's good to make a list of those things we REALLY want instead of buy anything we see. 
I love trying new make up but if I'm going to buy high-end products, I prefer to read some reviews first.. otherwise my pocket will cry several days!

I thought it was about time to make a Beauty Wishlist for 2013 of those products I deeply wish to have. I even encourage all of you to do one so we all can share what we have on mind :)
I'm travelling to the US for the first time next week and I'll be probably purchasing these things. Please let me know if you own them! 

Ya que a todas nos gusta el make-up y probablemente estemos pensando en ello gran parte del día pense en hacer una wishlist para enfocarme bien en los productos que realmente quiero en vez de comprar cosas a lo loco. De hecho las tagueo a todas para que hagan este post así vemos cuales son los productos que tenemos todas en mente! 
En una semana me estoy yendo a USA y espero poder comprarme varias de estas cosas ya que como todas sabrán, allá está todo mas barato!
Si ya tienen alguno de estos productos, cuentenme como les sirvieron :)

Nars velvet matte lip pencil in cruella ($25) looks like the kind of lipstick that makes your teeth look really white and can make any outfit look sofisticated. I'd love this product for special ocations.
I'm always looking for good primers for oily skin, I don't really care about hiding my pores that much but I saw that Givenchy Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer ($33) is an excellent option and so far I've seen only good reviews about it. I was also looking for an alternative to my Mac Blot Powder and I found that Shiseido Translucent Pressed Powder ($32) is a great powder that doesn't leave any color in the skin.
Who doesn't want this Mac Pro Conceal and Correct Palette ($40)? Seriously, it's crazy!
I was also looking for good eyeshadow bases until I saw the review Coco did on her blog about this Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeshadow stick in blackmail ($4.49) and I was stunned! Rimmel keeps getting better all the time.
Who doesn't want the new Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Pallete ($27)? I'm a very neutral girl and I'd love to own this palette soon as I don't have any UD products yet. Same goes for Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in tipsy ($26), such a pretty coral!

I've heard about Perricone MD a while ago as it is a very expensive brand that makes only awesome products, I believe this kit Intensive Pore Minimizer and Intensive Pore ($98) treatment could suit me well though is quite pricey. Same applies to Murad Oil-Control Mattifier spf 15 ($40), not the cheapest brand ever but I've heard it works and I really need some moisture.
One thing I'm excited to try is Neutrogena Microdermoabrasion System ($20), is for all those who does not dare to buy a Clarisonic cause we affraid to spend $150 for something we don't know if it works! Gladly I've seen reviews of this product in youtube and all were positive! Bargain alert?
I'm exciting about trying Origins, well I'm excited about trying all these products as they are not sold in Argentina! I've seen they have good anti-blemish products so I want to try the Super Spot Acne Treatment Gel ($14.50)  and Zero Oil Moisture Lotion (26.50).
Last but not least are these two products Freeman Feeling Beautiful Mint & Lemon Facial Clay Mask ($3.99) which I read that it's good at soothing skin and controling oils and Lush Lip Scrub in Bubblegum ($9.95), this product was raved pretty much everywhere and when I was in Sweden I didn't even pay attention to this shop so now I'll put an eye on it :)

Do you wish to own the same products? Tell me! 
Flo x 

Todos los precios son el dólares ya que así los busqué en Ulta, Sephora, etc. 
Sería genial si vendieran todo esto en Argentina, no?
Besotes x

A Lovely Nude | Clinique Chubby Stick #Mega Melon

Hi girls! Today I wanted to show you girls a lippie that I've been loving for a while: Clinique Chubby Stick in the shade #04 Mega Melon. You probably know by now how much I adore Clinique as it did helped me to get rid of my acne but.. make-up?
I tried only one foundation, Anti-blemish Solutions and even though it did not break me up I didn't like it at all as it was quite cakey. For that reason I stayed away of their cosmetics until I saw a big sale on a travel kit which contained many products for a great price so I went for it!

Hola chicas, hoy queria mostrarles un labial que me gusta muchísimo: Clinique Chubby Stick en #04 Mega Melon. Probablemente ya sepan que amo Clinique ya que me ayudó mucho a curar mi acné pero los maquillajes no me atraían mucho. Probé una sola base y aunque no me sacó granitos me dejaba la cara como empastada y desde ahí no probé mas cosmeticos de esta marca hasta que vi una promo muy buena por un travel kit y no la pude dejar pasar!
