Review: Marc Jacobs Lovemarc lip gel #108


Hello readers! sorry I have been MIA of the blogosphere, I got busy with Poshmark. Since I decided to become active on that app again I’ve been on it 24/7, not kidding! when I make a sale or find something I WANT it gets encouraging although some might argue that I should use the word addicting. So definitely depends on who you ask. (LOL) My next post will be about that, but for now I wanted to share my experience in using the Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel.

I love Marc Jacobs’ beauty line my first ever was the gel mascara, a freebie I got for my Sephora’s rewards point. And it was the best mascara I’ve ever used from then on I’ve discarded the ones that I have previous to that. In my search for the next lip stick I decided to check out their latest lippy colors and the best color for me is the Lovemarc Lip Gel #108 – Have We Met? it possesses the cutest shade of pink and I hate pink so that is saying something. Anyway this lippy have everything that I need. Great shade, creamy upon application, moisturizes my lips, gentle scent and long wear. Plus I love that I don’t need to apply lip gloss since it has a shimmer on it and not the annoying come hitter kind. Only thing it does not have is SPF.

The lip stick case has a magnetic closure that kind of locks it in to place, I say “kind of” because it is not that strong that you’ll struggle to open it but enough to hold them together. I love the simple and elegant design of the case, just black with silver MARC JACOBS embossed / raised letters in silver that effectively made the brand name stand out. It gives that high end look without paying too much. I think for $30.00 it is definitely worth it. I highly recommend it.

Geometric, Art Deco Bangles   I am currently obsessed with geometric theme in jewelry, sure it is always there but the ones that I favor looks bad ass. It is a minimalist dream but definitely had a punch of making a statement. I especially love the ones with stones in them.




If anyone is interested and obsessed like me, I started selling them in my Poshmark closet.

I also found pieces that I added on my wish list.

Review: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #94

Vip Summer 2014 at FORZIERI.COM

Since the beginning of this month I’ve been looking for the perfect shade of lipstick. Something light but not really a neutral. Something red with a mauve tone, subtle, work appropriate, something close to my natural lip color that won’t look pale or bland. So many conditions right? Well I plan on spending a ridiculous amount for a lip stick (for the first time) so might it might as well be the perfect one for me. For the longest time my lippy of choice is the Fresh Sugar Rose by itself. I love that it leaves my lips moisturized unlike the many brands I’ve tried but I am ready to move on a get something like it but with more shade. With that said I was looking for a lipstick with a powerful lip treatment in it. I’ve tried  4 lip stick total,  YSL was my first choice and it was great, but I decided the shade I picked is more for a night time wear, my search recommenced. Sephora must hate me already, I’ve since tried Lancôme then Dior to Smashbox and finally landed the Rouge Coco Shine #94 bought at Nordstrom. This specific color is not on Chanel’s summer collection but for Fall 2014. I really don’t care even if it is last season’s shade, all I care about is how the color looks perfect on me. Most lipstick gives me that chapped feeling but not this one, I love how it moisturizes my lips. Application is smooth, it is creamy and lightweight, there’s a subtle scent. For my 8 hour work day I reapplied it 3x, it is not designed as a long wear lipstick but it does what I need. Everything they say on their online description checks out.



Below is how the lip color looks by itself

Review: Zara Mini – City Bag

Lately I’ve been on the satchel slash cross body style of purses and the Zara Mini City has been on my watch list. It is the perfect size (10″x12″x4″) and shape for an everyday office use. It fits all my basic essentials: full size wallet, make up pouch, travel size lotion, sanitizer, small notebook, clear zipper pouch for small documents and other knick knacks. The outside material and the strap  are made of 100% polyurethane which have the saffiano like feel. The inside lining is cotton. I love the sturdy structure and the navy shade, it is perfect. It is a neutral color for what I have in my wardrobe.  The gold plating on the padlock hardware of the bag is also of high quality, I expect the shine to last a little bit longer with a help of a polishing cloth. Over all the bag is well made and price is just right.
