De La Rosa Eye Makeup Is The Latest Trend On Social Media And They’re Beautiful

The Latinidad is rich with uniquely delicious treats and snacks that have become a staple of our lives. De La Rosa marzipan is one of those yummy candies that have attained a cult-like following among Latinx folk. What’s not to love about the crumbly and delicate candy? It’s sweet and light and tastes like childhood memories. 

However, for some of us, the De La Rosa candy is more than a casual treat — it’s an obsession that deserves to be celebrated. We found marzipan fans on Twitter and Instagram who have immortalized their love for this little dulce in creative and beautiful ways. Here are some of the incredible creations that do the tiny De La Rose candy proud. 

1. A certifiable snack.

Los Angeles based makeup artist Melissa Isabel has an Instagram page full of dazzling eye makeup designs. From sarape-inspired makeup to prism and glitter covered looks, the Mexicana delivers gorgeous and delicate art pieces. In honor of the famous Mexican marzipan, Melissa Isabel created this lovely and detailed eye makeup look that is almost as delicate as the real thing.

2. A sweet work of art.

California-based Face Painting by Tiffany has had some odd requests when creating face painting masterpieces and she tagged this is one of them. Although, anyone who has eaten a De La Rosa marzipan should totally understand why this person wanted a replica of the sweet on their face.

3. Marzipan nails.

That bold red against the brilliant yellow stirs deep feelings of nostalgia in us. The added bit of sparkle is a nice touch as well. We would totally rock these. 

4. A De La Cutie.

¡Que chula! This chiquita is as sweet as the marzipan she is dressed like. Those chubby cheeks and curly hair — complete with a little De La Rosa barrette make her look like a princess straight out of Candyland. 

5. A permanent tribute.

There’s love and then there’s everlasting devotion. Tattoos are forever and so is this De La Rosa tattoo. We especially love the very appropriate Selena lyric at the bottom of the candy.

6. A marzipan beauty.

We want this dress! Instagram model Miriam brings a rockabilly vibe to this dress meant to mimic the recognizable candy. The cream-colored circle skirt is a perfect substitute for beloved marzipan.

7. A bit of his and her’s dulce.

NicNikNicko, a Latinx-owned shop located in El Paso, Texas, makes all kinds of things inspired by Mexican culture. In particular, they offer these De La Rosa tees. Get one for you and your bae the next time you feel like twinning.

8. Bedazzled and bold.

This gorgeous eye makeup piece is nothing short of breathtaking. Created by makeup artist DK Vanity, this look has the kind of detailed brushwork that this makeup artist is known for. The crystals give it an extra bit of well-deserved bling.

9. The littlest rose. 

Instagram /@stylelosangeles

Awwwww! We can’t get over how adorable this littlest bitty marzipan is. California-based Style Los Angeles created this sweet costume for this precious baby girl.

10. What every party needs.

Instagram / @malexandria.designs

A piñata is a staple at any good party so why not sweeten the deal with a De La Rosa-inspired one. What are the chances that there are oodles of smaller De La Rosa marzipan candies inside this one?

11. An elaborate cosplay.

Instagram / @mexnthecity

Why should the little ones be the only fans who get to dress up like this favorite Mexican dulce? This costume by @emo_extremo is an incredible undertaking and is definitely something that will win you first place at the next costume contest. 

12. Mouse ears with a dash of marzipan. 

Instagram /@littlebigk

We love a collab and linking De La Rosa Marzipan with our favorite mouse is a brilliant idea. Don’t get us wrong, we love those concha mouse ears too but these are a uniquely new take on the accessory.

13. Handle with care.

Instagram / @mgv25

If you’re as fragile as our favorite marzipan, don’t be afraid to let others know to handle with care. This understated De La Rosa candy cosplay is the perfect way to get that message across.

14. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Instagram / @rxchmua

Understated and finely detailed, this De La Rosa eye makeup look was created by makeup enthusiast and Salt Lake City-based Latina, Rachel. We love the simple and clean look of her creation.

15. French macarons get a Mexican makeover.

Instagram / @geesmacarons 

Conchas, De La Rosa candies and paleta payaso, oh my! Made by California-based @geesmacarons, these macarons impersonate some of our favorite sweets and look simple delicious while doing so.

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Split End Serums That Will Help Hair Growth And Keep Your Ends From Splitting

Astrid Stawiarz / Stringer

Sure, there might be more things peskier than split ends but there’s no doubt they’re a universal issue that haunts us all.

Thanks to dryness, age, heat styling, and even just existing, split ends are a real issue that people around the globe have to deal with and manage every day. As the oldest part of our hair strands, ends need a very particular type of special care. Particularly if you ever want to avoid having those splits ends work their way up the entire shaft of your hair and wreak even more havoc. While snipping off those ends are a surefire way to fix a split end problem, if you’re trying to grow your hair out there are ways to attempt to keep your ends from splitting in the first place.

We scoured the internet for top reviewed split ends. Check out what we found below!

Oribe’s Split End Seal

“My stylist gave me a sample of this to use on my thick, fine, curly, highlighted hair after a particularly strenuous bleach session. I was so impressed, I bought this when the sample ran out.

Any good stylist will tell you, it’s pretty much impossible to actually seal an end once it’s split (beyond making it appear to be sealed for a short period). But it is possible to return moisture and other nutrients to hair that is damaged or close to splitting. And this product is very good at doing that. It seals the hair to keep the good stuff in and protect against future damage from the environment. A little goes a long way if you apply it to wet hair, before applying any other styling products. Seriously, I got six uses out of the sample. It’ll take me a while to run out of the full size bottle.

This stuff really does work miracles on dry hair. The only way I’d ever be able to get rid of all my split ends would be to just shave my head. But that doesn’t mean my hair isn’t healthy. More than one stylist has pointed that out to me. That wouldn’t be the case if I didn’t use quality products like this one.” – Amazon review

Rita HazanTriple Threat Split End Remedy

“My hair deals with a lot of heat styling and hairspray so the ends get a little worse for wear. I’m growing my hair out for my wedding next year and I’m a law student, so I can’t afford to be getting regular haircuts at this point. I got a sample of this product and can’t believe what a difference it made in my hair. I can no longer see the split ends and my hairstyles pretty effortlessly now. I just ordered the full size.”- Sephora review

Moroccanoil Mending Infusion

“LOVE LOVE LOVE Moroccanoil Mending Infusion! This product works great on the ends of my hair that definitely need to be trimmed! It fuses the tips of my hair after styling so I can go longer w out a trim. It makes the ends look healthy & the smell is terrific! I use all of the Moroccanoil products & so far they are working great for me! The only negative thing I can say is that the bottle is made of thick glass which the actual quantity of the product is less than it actually appears to be. However, it takes very little product for the ends of the hair! The product still deserves 5 stars! IF for any reason these products don’t work for you, it has to be that they have been returned “as no longer needed” & possibly tampered with by a dishonest consumer. Amazon will always make things right from my experience. From reviews I’ve read in the past, I felt I needed to add this comment as I have very difficult hair, coarse, frizzy, & unmanageable unless I use an excellent product like ‘Moroccanoil products’!!”- Amazon Review

PATTERN Jojoba Oil Hair Serum

“Love it! Smells like lavender, ahhhh. I love that you can use this on your scalp and hair. It locks in the moisture from the Pattern leave-in so well for super soft and hydrated hair. I’m so happy with everything from this line. I do believe this jojoba oil is a stand out product as well. You can use it in so many ways. I will continue to purchase this and pretty much everything else from this line. Thank you, Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross, you hit the nail on the head!! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this line.” – Sephora review

Design Essentials Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum

“My hair is natural and I usually go to a salon when I occasionally want to have it flat ironed. I decided to order Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum to do it myself and I already had the Bamboo & silk HCO leave in conditioner that I used to detangle. Wow, these 2 pair together left my hair silky and as straight as if my stylist had dRead more about review stating Love this strengthening serum!” – Site review
