Yesterday I shared my swatches & review of my first look at the KBShimmer Fall 2015 collection. Hint: fabulous. See Part #1 of my Fall swatches here! Today I’m sharing the 2nd & final half…& they’re gorgeous too. Keep reading to check them all out! [Read more…]
I’m a big fan of shimmer…metallics…shiny. But I have to be really careful along my cheeks because they tend to be more dry. So far I’ve only reviewed Gabriel nail polishes (check out the Gabriel Color BLOCKade Nail Polish Collection Swatches & Review here) so I was really excited to try something more in the makeup realm. I don’t normally do a gold highlight because I’m so fair & I think it can look kind of harsh but this one actually works really well! Keep reading to check it out! [Read more…]
If you loved the shades I first swatched & reviewed from the KBShimmer summer line on the blog here then buckle up because I have six more to share! I have some awesome variety too- with some neon, glitter, holo, & even a duochrome! Keep reading to see swatches & review of KBShimmer In Yacht Water, Pink-a-colada, Wave the Flag, For Sail by Owner, Moody Hues, & Sun & Games! [Read more…]
Are you ready for Valentine’s Day tomorrow? I’ve been having all kinds of technical difficulties over here so I am already in need of a mini vacation. Today I’m sharing some seriously fun shades from KBShimmer that I’ve put together into a quirky Valentine’s Day nail art look. Because boring is…boring right? I have some shades from previous collections & one from the new Spring 2015 collection! Check them all out below!
Pixi is one of those brands I recommend to everyone. You can pick it up at Target, it is affordable, & it tends to perform like something you’d buy at a high-end store. From the cute but functional packaging to innovative products most people can afford, Pixi tends to really impress me. Check out some new-to-me products from Pixi including the nail polish shade Gilded Garnet, Correction Concealer in Brightening Peach, & more! [Read more…]
As much as I love a bold red lip & intense cat eye- glitter & holiday polishes really make me feel the holiday spirit most! Sinful Colors has some new shades & some old favorites this year! I almost always add a few Sinful Colors shades to my stocking stuffer gifts- or even little additions to big gifts. They’re affordable, pretty, & have some seriously gorgeous shades that look perfect for the season! [Read more…]
This post is somewhat embarrassing because it shows my complete lack of control when I really like something. Seriously I just buy almost an entire line…proof in this post as I currently own 8 out of 10. & it is killing me not to make it 10 out of 10. I have a problem.
The Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash Duos come in 10 shades like I said above & each product is double-ended. Each duo comes with a cream eyeshadow on one side & a glitter on the other. The two colors I don’t have are Fuchsia Flash which is a very pale pink & fuchsia glitter & the other shade is Burnished Bling which I fully intend to pick up when I finally find it in stock! I posted a sneak peak of these on my Instagram here which is a good place to follow me for sneak peeks & deals I find! [Read more…]
Is there anything more spectacular than a gorgeous holo mani? I mean seriously- I would holo everything in my life if I could. I also have some of my first Born Pretty items to show you for nails which I’m quite excited about! Tis the season where less isn’t more- more is definitely MORE!
PR Sample. I bought it. Affiliate links.
Silver & gold are beautiful year-round but they just scream holidays don’t they? Toss in some holo & these super easy nail decals & you have something even more fun. Please excuse the dryness on my hands though- I have a huge cut on the back of my finger & anything lotion & acetone related makes me want to scream. In some cases I do a bit which terrifies the dogs. [Read more…]
Shall we talk about my love of glitter & glitz? I think we should! Nothing screams holidays to me quite like an abundance of shimmer & glitters. I adore the drama & the shine that catches all the lights. Glitter can get a seriously bad reputation- something meant only for the young & chunky + uncomfortable to wear. That just isn’t true anymore- there are options for us glitter aficionados…& I’m going to share one of my favorite intense shimmer options with you today!
Lorac Lustre Drops are nothing new to me- I pick them up whenever possible. I actually reviewed a similar limited edition set last year around this time which you can see here. The two shades of Lorac Lustre Drops that are permanent & available year-round are Diamond & Gold which are both gorgeous. Last year the shades in my set were Diamond, Platinum, Amethyst, & Topaz. Now this year we have the Lorac The Royal 3D Liquid Lustre Drops set which contains Opal, 24K, Rose Quartz, & Amethyst. Just in case you thought this was a repeat I wanted to clear that up!

Tis the season to buy gifts! Frankly many of them are for myself but we don’t need to go there, right? Estee Lauder is a brand I tend to play around in when I go to certain stores but like many other similar brands I try to wait for a great deal. When I know a brand will put out an awesome holiday set I try to hold out as long as possible for hope’s sake that something I’ve been eyeing will be included. Without further chatter- here’s what is in this month’s holiday set!
This box is pretty gigantic & so is the case which I don’t mind at all. The packaging looks like a gift- who doesn’t love gifts? I found mine at my local BX but & actually don’t see it listed online anywhere yet…more on that below. [Read more…]
