Hi lovelies, I'm back with a a beauty product review. I love reading about people's experience with a certain product before hearing out to purchase it, I hope my review gives you the little push you need or clears your doubts about this drugstore BB. When it comes to face makeup there are a few categories we all look for: packaging, claims, texture, scent, longevity, and coverage. Today I will be scoring this product on each of this categories (except for coverage) on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best possible score. Pictures speak louder than words & on this post you'll see pictures that put almost all important aspects of a BB cream to the test, hope you enjoy! This product retails for $9 to $12 and it contains 1fl Oz.
Revlon claims that this product hydrates like moisturizer, smoothes like a primer, covers like a foundation, blurs flaws like a concealer & protects like sunscreen (SPF 30).
Claims = 9
It comes in a lightweight squeeze bottle tube that allows the product to come out neatly & conveniently.
The packaging is pretty generic, nothing to girly or pretty. I am an absolute sucker for eye catching packaging.
Color selection includes 3 shades (light, light/medium, medium).
Rating = 7
Texture & Scent
Has a creamy texture similar to a lightweight facial cream, I would describe it as a summer night cream.
The product smells very strongly like SPF lotion, it reminds me of childhood vacations fighting my parents to avoid the Banana Boat pink bottle.
It blends well & it's easy to apply with fingers or brush, however, it's oily & definitely requires powder to hide shiny spots.
Rating = 7
The coverage is very sheer, while it evens out your complexion it also allows for skin to show through the product.
I was happy to find out that, it lightly diminished the appearance of some of my problems.
when doubled as a spot concealer it covered my breakout as much as a light coverage foundation.
This product is perfect for "everyday fresh-faced look".
coverage = very sheer
After 3 hours of wearing this BB cram without previously applying primer or blotting after application, the product had almost completely worn off.
The Photo Ready line is meant to make your complexion appear flawless in photographs, which I believe this product absolutely did.
While the color selection is only as wide as 3 shades, my shade did a great job of blending & matching my undertones.
P.S. This is my first beauty post, please bare with me. The photos were challenging, I look huge & cross-eyed.

How To: Transition Your Wardrobe from Winter to SpringIt's that time of year! The time when we step out into the chilly morning weather with multiple layers, one of which may be a light chiffon in hopes of a sunny forecast, the next may just be a cozy knitted wool just in case. At the end of they day we're met with dissapointment because, well, Mother Nature is not in favor of your sartorial choices, so...what are we to do? Build a transitional wardrobe! I say. It's not as challenging as it may seem, here are a few tips to battle nature's indecisiveness:
- Wear open toed shoes with your layered-packed outfit to adda touch of Spring (Show off that pedi).
- Vibrant colors are the staple of Spring & Summer so ditch those boring grays & top your outfit with a bright-colored jacket.
- If you are dying to try out all of SS2013's trends, you can do so by adding some bright summer accesories to your Winter outfit.
- Wear a dress layered with a light colored leather jacket and scarf, think LBD with a mint moto-jacket & lilac scarf (pastels are super trendy).

Since the very moment I landed eyes on Stella McCartney's beautiful & very feminine bow creation, I wanted to dive into some sort of D.I.Y. inspired by it. I guess I just never got around to it , the dress totally slipped my mind until I walked into TJMaxx & saw this gorgeous sweater. It's not only adorable but super cozy & one of the pieces I've spent the winter months in. I really love how big a statement it makes while being muted & dainty + anything inspired by Stella McCartney's genius is an A in my book.
Desde el momento en que vi el vestido de moños diseñado por Stella McCartney me enamore, es un diseño tan femenino el cual inmediatamente me inspiro para hacer una pieza D.Y.I. pero nunca tuve el tiempo. Despues de meses la memoria de el vestido se me esfumo de la mente hasta el dia que entre a TJMaxx y vi este sweater divino. No solamente es bonito pero super comodo y es la prenda en la cual he vivido durante los meses de invierno. La verdad es que, cualquier cosa que se paresca a una creacion de Stella McCartney para mi es perfecta.

I might have been struck by writer's block or perhaps, the only thing I want to mention about this outfit is the amazing bag my mother brought me from Colombia. It is a genuine-hand-crafted leather bag called Carriel, it's the same one you've seen famed coffee farmer Juan Valdez carrying alongside his donkey. I love it so very much, not only because its wearable but because it allows me to carry a piece of home with me every time I wear it. It is also super practical, it has the most efficient space dividers & even a hidden money pocket (also it has a built-in holster). I'm really into exciting lip colors, high & embellished collars, and mixed prints! Hope you guys like this outfit.
La verdad no tengo mucho que decir sobre esta pinta, probablemente es porque lo que mas me gusta de ella y lo mas emocionante para mi es mi bolso. Es un regalo que mi mama me trajo de Colombia, es un bolso tipico de Colombia hecho a mano en cuero. El bolso es conocido como Carriel y tal vez has visto a el cafetero Juan Valdez luciendo uno muy parecido. La verdad me encanta por que es muy facil de combinar, es practico y sobretodo cada vez que lo uso me siento mas cercana a mis raizes. En este momento estoy encantando con los cuellos altos y decorados con pedreria, la mezcla de estampados y tambien el labial rojo.
