Jesse & Joy Concert #LatinosImparables

 photo image_zps7de4f7d7.jpg




 This past Thursday I had the opportunity to attend Jesse & Joy's concert, they're one of my favorite Latin bands, I love their sound & lyrics; they make me feel in love. Downy has welcomed Jesse & Joy as their newest brand ambassadors & will be with them on the road putting their Unstoppable scent-boosters to the test, to see if their outfits stay fresh all throughout their Latinos Imparables journey.
I think a good rule of thumb for what to wear to a concert is, wearing something inspired by the performers & appropriate for the venue. Jesse & Joy have a very cool & vintage style, you can always find them in cool colored denim, flowy-comfortable fabrics & great prints. Granted, I'm not nearly as cool as these two but, I still wanted to add some vintage & edgy touches to my oufit. Peplums may be very current, however, they have very vintage origins & nothing is more iconic & cool than a red lip. As for edge, these Prabal Gurung strappy heels are super rocker chic.

El Jueves pasado tuve la oportunidad de asistir al concierto de Jesse & Joy's .  Su música me encanta, tanto el sonido como la letra de cada canción. Downy ha bienvenido a el dúo como sus nuevos embajadores y han retado su nuevo producto Scent-boosters a mantener la ropa de Jesse Y Joy fresca hasta el final de el tour, Latinos Imparables.
Yo creo que una buena regla en cuanto a estilo y moda para ir a un concierto es, inspirarte en los artistas y el lugar donde se dará el concierto. Jesse y Joy tienen un estilo vintage, por lo cual yo quise agregar la silueheta peplum y el labial rojo a mi pinta. El lugar de el concierto fue The House of Blues, el cual es un lugar donde artistas legendarios se han presentado y me inspiró a agregarle un toque rocker a este look por medio de las sandalias de cuero marca Parabal Gurung for Target.

Review: Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream

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.


   photo image_zps4b5cf53c.jpg photo image_zpsa635d670.jpg Claims 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 Packaging 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  photo image_zps35f35d0d.jpg  photo image_zps1c982627.jpg 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  photo image_zpsff9a0d18.jpg  photo image_zps97237d82.jpg Coverage 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  photo image_zpse74d31be.jpg  photo image_zps2fa72a82.jpg Results 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.
