Some Makeup Products That Have A Special Meaning To Me


We all started different ways playing with makeup. I started with my mom's makeup, she had a little bag with some products that I used to love to play with when I was a kid - lipsticks were my favorite thing. Some years later when I was more grown up my mom bought me kids makeup, to me at the time it felt like I owned Chanel makeup or something ahaha! (Ofc has I was a kid I didn't know what Chanel was, but you understand what I'm trying to say). When I was a teenager I started to buy makeup by myself (always affordable products) with the money that I received on Christmas/Easter/birthday or money that my parents gave me. That's when things with makeup started to get serious to me. I still have some products from my teenage years that I saved because they have a special meaning to me (unfortunately I didn't kept anything from the time that I played with my mom's makeup), and I'm about to show you them and tell you the reasons why.

Nós todas começamos de diferentes maneiras a utilizar maquilhagem. Eu comecei com a maquilhagem da minha mãe, ela tinha uma bolsa pequena com alguns produtos que eu adorava brincar quando era criança - os batons eram o meu produto favorito. Alguns anos depois quando eu era mais crescida a minha mãe comprou-me maquilhagem para crianças, para mim naquele tempo parecia que eu tinha maquilhagem da Chanel ou coisa parecida ahaha! (Óbvio que quando eu era criança não sabia o que era a Chanel, mas percebeste o que é que eu estou a tentar dizer). Quando eu era adolescente comecei a comprar maquilhagem por minha conta (sempre produtos baratos) com o dinheiro que recebia no Natal/Páscoa/aniversário ou dinheiro que os meus pais me davam. Foi ai que as coisas com a maquilhagem começaram a ficar sérias para mim. Eu ainda tenho alguns produtos que utilizava na minha adolescência que guardei porque tem valor sentimental para mim (infelizmente não guardei nada da altura que brincava com a maquilhagem da minha mãe), e estou prestes a mostrar-te os produtos e dizer-te as razões porquê.


L'Óreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick in 01 Fashionista Pink

Back in the days I used to hate wearing lipstick when I was leaving the house because I always thought that lipstick looked weird on me (yes I had and still have lots of insecurities about myself), so to start wearing lipstick more often I decided to buy a glossy and sheer one. This one by L'Óreal was perfect for me, I wore it a lot! I remember going shopping with my mom and wear this, and I was so happy! And then I started to realize that I needed more lipsticks with a little bit more color because it actually looked good.

Antigamente eu odiava utilizar batom quando era para sair de casa porque sempre pensei que batom ficava estranho em mim (sim eu tinha e ainda tenho muitas inseguranças sobre mim), e para começar a utilizar batom mais frequentemente eu decidi comprar um batom com efeito gloss e com muita pouca cor. Este da L'Óreal era perfeito para mim, eu utilizei-o muito! Lembro-me de ir às comprar com a minha mãe e utilizá-lo, e eu estava tão contente! E depois comecei a perceber que precisava de ter mais batons com um pouco mais de cor porque afinal ficava-me bem.



Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten

 I still love this lipstick, it's one of my favorites ever, brings me so many memories! After the L'Óreal lipstick, this was my next purchase. This is sheer too, but instead of just a little hint of pink this one is a sheer berry color, it was perfect to get out of my comfort zone! I used it a lot to go to school, to go for a walk, for especial events that I went... oh so many memories.

Eu ainda adoro este batom, é um dos meus favoritos de sempre, trás-me tantas memórias! Depois do batom da L'Óreal, este foi a minha próxima compra. Este também tem pouca cor, mas em vez de ter só um pouco de rosa é um vinho arroxeado sheer, foi a escolha perfeita para sair da minha zona de conforto! Eu utilizei-o muito para ir para a escola, para ir dar um passeio, para eventos especiais... oh tantas memórias.


L'Óreal Quad Pro Eyeshadow Hazel Eyes

When I decided to start with eyeshadows I used those little palettes with awful quality, and I wanted a simple and easy to use palette with some brown colors. One day going to the supermarket I saw this palette and I grabbed it, it even has the numbers on the eyeshadows so it was easier to know which eyeshadow to put first! I used it a ton especially when I started my first blog, I did so many looks with it! This brings me so many memories from my first blog.

Quando eu decidi começar a utilizar sombras de olhos eu utilizava aquelas paletas pequenas com uma qualidade péssima, e queria uma simples e fácil de utilizar com uns tons castanhos. Um dia foi ao supermercado e vi esta paleta e comprei-a, ela até tem os números nas sombras e por isso foi muito fácil de saber qual a sombra que era para pôr primeiro! Eu utilizei muito esta paleta especialmente quando comecei o meu primeiro blog, fiz tantos looks com ela! Trás-me mesmo muitas memórias do meu primeiro blog.


Rimmel London Color Rush Eye Shadow in 621 Britt Cool

Ahaha, this little duo was the first experience I had with colorful eyeshadows. I bought it with the purpose to do tutorials with it for my first blog, and it was a success! Sometimes I wore it to go for school, I put a very neutral shade on the eyelid and crease and on the lower lash line I applied one of those colors, and it looked crap but at the time was the best that I knew and I liked it!

Ahaha, este pequeno dueto de sombras foi a primeira experiência que tive com sombras coloridas. Eu comprei-o com o propósito de fazer tutorials com ele para o meu primeiro blog, e foi um sucesso! Às vezes utilizava-o para ir para a escola, aplicava uma sombra neutra na pálpebra e no côncavo e na linha de água inferior aplicava uma destas cores, e ficava que era uma porcaria mas na altura era o melhor que sabia fazer e gostava!



Mya Cosmetics 120 Colors Eyeshadow Palette

This was my first big eyeshadow palette! My parents got it for me for Christmas and I was so excited! I started to gain more experience with eyeshadows since I got this palette, it was a huge helper, I created so many different looks! I love to remember when I sat in my little vanity with my mom and she chose some colors and I had to create a look with them, it was so funny! Good times.

Esta foi a minha primeira paleta de sombras grande! Os meus pais ofereceram-me no Natal e eu estava tão entusiasmada! Comecei a ganhar mais experiência com sombras de olhos desde que recebi esta paleta, foi uma ajuda enorme, criei tantos looks diferentes com ela! Eu adoro lembrar-me de quando me sentava na minha pequena mesa de maquilhagem com a minha mãe e ela escolhia algumas cores e eu tinha que criar um look com elas, era tão engraçado! Bons tempos.


Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette

A year after I received that Mya palette everyone on YouTube was doing reviews and looks with the Urban Decay Naked palette, it was crazy! I didn't had any high-end product, and as I loved (and still love) eyeshadows I knew that the Naked palette had to be mine someday. I said to my parents that on Christmas I would like to have this palette, and they gave it to me! I cried when I opened the gift! It was my first high-end product and I will never let go of it.

Um ano depois de eu receber a paleta da Mya toda a gente no YouTube estava a fazer reviews e looks com a paleta Naked da Urban Decay, era de loucos! Eu não tinha nenhum produto caro, e como adorava (e ainda adoro) sombras de olhos eu sabia que a paleta Naked tinha que ser minha um dia. Eu disse aos meus pais que gostava de a receber no Natal, e eles ofereceram-me! Eu chorei quando abri o presente! Foi o meu primeiro produto caro e eu nunca a vou pôr fora.



Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color in Bare It All

Last but not least, I have to mention this lipstick. Because of seeing many YouTubers (again because of YouTube!) wearing nude lipstick I wanted to join the trend too but I didn't had in my collection anything like that. I went into the only beauty store I have in my island and they had the entire collection of the Wet n Wild lipsticks in stock. As they are very affordable and I heard that the quality was good, I decided that I would buy one. After seeing all the nude shades that they had, Bare It All was the one that I liked the most. After using it a couple times I realized that I loved this color and I wanted more from this line. And that was how my addiction to lipsticks started.

Por fim mas não menos importante tenho que mencionar este batom. Por causa de ver tantas YouTubers (outra vez por causa do YouTube!) a utilizarem batons nude eu queria fazer parte desta tendência também mas não tinha na minha coleção nenhum batom desta cor. Eu fui há única loja de maquilhagem que existe na minha ilha e eles tinham a coleção inteira dos batons da Wet n Wild em stock. Como eles são muito baratos e eu tinha visto que a qualidade era boa, decidi comprar um. Depois de ver todas as cores nude que a marca tinha, a cor Bare It All foi a que eu gostei mais. Depois de utilizar este batom algumas vezes notei que gostei mesmo muito desta cor e queria mais desta linha. E foi assim que o meu vício por batons começou.

Do you have any makeup product that have a special meaning to you? Let me know!

  3. One of mine was my first real mascara which was the Cover Girl Professional mascara, it was actually a mascara I think I would hate now but I loved it sooo much back then. Also an eyeshadow palette from Forever 21 which only had shimmer shades. So I probably looked so crazy with a ton of shimmer on my eyes all the time when I was just starting out with makeup lol xx Brynn

  9. The naked palette by urband decay is the first expensive eyeshadow palette I bought by myself! It took me a lot to save enough money to purchase the palette, but i can still remember the happiness on my face while walking with the sephora bag in my hands. That feeling was priceless!

    Carolina i ve read your blog posts several times and I really like your style to blog. I am a little bit shy to ask, but I would really like to know what do you think about the blog i share with my sister. We are sooo new in this and I would really appreciate if you could take a look and give me your opinion, cause you look like a pro to me. We write in italian but at the top there is the translator so you can read it in the language you prefere. It would be so great if you could give us a few minutes of your day :* We have a lot to improve!!

  11. This was such a lovely post! I don't have any makeup from the old days any more but I definitely had a few of those rimmel duos in my collection. I also remember deciding I was going to buy something from boots with my pocket money and it was some bronzing pearls and I used to love them xx
