This is me spiffied up, after I used the Olia hair color, the Extrodinaire Color Riche lipstick, the Loreal Curve It hair cream, and the Voluminous Butterfly mascara – all from the glorious Walgreens beauty aisle! Read below to see the other things I scored and how you can enter to win a $100 Walgreens gift card!


Hola, crafty chicas! OK, there is one guilty pleasure in life that never gets old – shopping for beauty products at Walgreens! I was super excited to sign up for this Walgreens Latino campaign because it is all about belleza! BEAUTY! I’m going to go through the new goodies I bought, and then I also have a $100 Walgreens gift card giveaway for one of YOU!

NOTE: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Walgreens.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.

This was my shopping list for the #WalgreensLatino #Belleza campaign:


  • Garnier Olia Oil Powered Permanent Color: This I tried immediately. It’s a great way to “touch up” those pesky grays between stylist appointments. It was easy to use and I loved that it was very low odor (no ammonia!), smelled nice and because it has a 60% oil blend, it didn’t make my hair feel like straw after I rinsed it out. OK, crafty confession – you know what I most excited about  well aside from covering my grays? The bottle! I washed it out and it makes for an excellent high-powered glitter blower! After I glitter, I like to use a squeeze bottle to blow away and strays flecks and this bottle is so awesome for that! Plus, it’s recycling, right? Olia for the win!


  • Revlon Parfumeria Nail (in China Flower and African Tea Rose): This was my second favorite – it’s nail polish that is scented! It comes in all these pretty colors. The smell is light and fresh and lasted about two days (without a top coat polish). I’ll definitely use the bottles in some art projects once the polish is gone. They are too cute not show off!


  • L’Oréal® Paris Voluminous® Butterfly™ Mascara: I’ve seen the commercials for this and was anxious to try it. The wand has a brush on one side and comb on the other so it can catch every last lash and bring it to life. It’s taking me a few tries to get used to it, every mascara has a different personality, you know? But so far so good. I chose the waterproof version because my ojos are always so watery!mascara
  • L’Oréal® Paris Extrodinaire by Colour Riche®: This looks like lipstick, but it is actually lip gloss with heavy tint. It’s very silky and shiny, but not gooey. I didn’t even get to try it first because Maya snatched it and used it! I used it for a TV segment this morning and I was impressed that it lasted through the morning without a touch-up.

Que bonita, I love my Maya! Even if she does sneak away with my new lip color!

  • L’Oréal® Paris CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream: This is one of my faves. It’s perfect for curly hair and smells sooo nice. It’s light, doesn’t have alcohol, not greasy, and adds a nice shine to my hair. I’ve been using it before I dry my hair and in the morning to keep the frizzies down. A keeper. I haven’t heard of this “Curve It” Loreal line until this campaign! Nice find for sure!


I have these too, but I have yet to try them:

  • L’Oréal® Paris Miracle Blur™ Instant Eye Smoother Treatment
  • Colgate Optic White Toothbrush & Whitening Pen
  • NIVEA ® A Kiss of Care & Color Lip Balm
