January Ipsy bag

Hi Beauties!
Another wonderful month. Every month I love these bags more and more. Always makes me so excited for the next one. 

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange body butter:
Smells delicious, soaks into skin fast, doesn't leave greasy feeling. I love it. I wouldn't mind buying a big one of these!

bixsexyhair hairspray:
Why the heck haven't I tried this sooner! This stuff is awesome. It makes my hair stay put without that crusty feeling and it gives me a little volume. Yup, I need the full size now. 

nailtini polish in shade frappe:
Of course I am excited for another nailtini polish. I loved the first one and I think this will be great for jelly manis. 

London Soho eyeliner brush:
It seems to thick to be my kind of eyeliner brush so I will probably use it some other way. Just don't know yet. I'll have to play with it a little more. 

Josie Maran Argan Oil:
So far I really like it. I've been using it at night on my face and then rubbing whatever is leftover that is on my hands into my cuticle area. I have only used it a few days so I don't see huge changes but it makes my skin feel great and my cuticles are looking a little bit better.

Also, the bag is a nice bigger bag that has a cute star pattern on the inside. Very happy with it all! I can't wait for some February sneak peeks!

New wet n wild mascaras review + pictures

Hi Beauties!

One thing about wet n wild that has let me down was their mascara's. Well until now. I am in love with these 2 that I bought and when used together I get amazing lashes. The nice thing is that I've loved these right from the start. No "drying time" needed to make them better. They were good from the get go. They separate,  don't clump, don't flake, don't irritate my eyes, they have the kind of brush I like and they give me the look I like. Long full lashes. I want to go buy more just for backups. At only $2.99 a piece why not try and see what you think?! I am still shocked that out of all the high priced mascaras the cheapest ones have given me the look I wanted! Way to go wet n wild!

In the pictures below(and how I use them daily) I start with the megaimpact first doing 1 or 2 coats then top it off with megaplump and it gives me the look you see in the pictures.

 Have you tried the new wet n wild mascaras?

Spring 2013 Color Club Halo Hues Collection with swatches!

I have a gorgeous collection of polishes to show you!
This is Color Clubs spring Halo Hues and they do not disappoint! I never got my hands on the first Halo Hues set because a lot were sold out or overpriced. When I seen that I could get my hands on these, I jumped at the chance before even seeing them swatches. I am so glad I did because each one is gorgeous. I Love how smoothly they applied and all of them only needed 2 coats to achieve awesomeness.
Enjoy the pictures!

 Now, tell me those are not gorgeous?! I can't get over how pretty they are. I think Over the Moon is my favorite, the blue is such a fun color. I see myself wearing these often and staring at my nails too much because of how fun they are.

What do you think of the new collection?

Urban Decay Naked Foundation: Pictures & Review

I have been using this often since I bought it. I knew I needed to blog about it whether I liked it or not since I've had a few of you ask. I am always happy to blog about something you all would like to see!

First pictures then I will talk a little more about what I like and don't like about this foundation.

Retails for $38.00 at Ulta

Now onto my thoughts about this!

What I like:
*Its so lightweight it really feels like your not wearing foundation. 
*Love the finish it gives my face. 
*A little goes a long way! One pump of this covers my face and neck.
*Evens out my skintone. I have a lot of redness and some acne scarring that it seems to cover nicely.
*The packaging: It has a pump so your not getting icky germs in it.
*Supposed to help keep skin nourished and help soften wrinkles. I can say it does seem to keep my skin nourished but as far as the wrinkle go, it hasn't seemed to help tremendously. Maybe the longer I use it it will have more results. 
*Oil free and paraben free.
*Doesn't oxidize horribly like some foundations have on me. Which is huge. I can't stand when I think my face looks great only to see it looks like different(not so great)color.

What I don't like:
*It is on the pricey side.
*Not the longest wearing foundation by itself. I set it with a powder and setting spray to get the longest wear. 
*Very liquidy which isn't horrible but I tend to like the thicker foundations.
*Doesn't help with my oiliness like I would've liked. 

 I have tried my flat top sigma brush, sedona lace flat and angled top brushes, beauty blender, and real techniques stippling brush. I found that the real techniques applied it beautifully without wasting the product by it soaking into the brush. 

With all that said, I really am enjoying it and could see myself repurchase it. If your looking for a full coverage foundation, I don't think this one would be for you. It does cover good but I still have to use concealer in spots. I am one that I tend to lean towards light-medium coverage because it just works for me. Plus I haven't found a full coverage I really like wearing all the time and doesn't feel cakey or heavy on my face. 

I hope this helped in some way! Hopefully I didn't forget anything. If you have any questions about it please leave me a comment. I will be happy to answer.

NYX Lipglosses swatches & mini review: Beige, Tea Rose, & Gold Pink

Hi Beauties!

NYX totally knew what they were doing when it comes to lipgloss. I just can't believe I haven't tried them till recently. Biggest reason is they never had the shade I wanted when I went to buy. Beige seems to be such a big hit in the blogging and youtube world so I knew I needed to try it. Finally at a random trip to Ulta(OK, so it was totally planned like they all are but ya know!) I finally found beige! I was so excited so I bought that and 2 others. 

As far as product goes, I have no complaints. They are beautiful colors, moisturizing, and a wonderful formula that isn't sticky at all. Wear time isn't the best but it seems as good as most lipglosses for me. It smells great and just all around a great product! I totally recommend trying them if you can.

I think out of the 3 Beige is my favorite. I now know why its such a hit...Weird name though!

I love the gold shimmer in Gold Pink. Nice thing is doesn't stick to your lips when the color has worn off. 

Just a comparison picture of all 3 of them. In the tubes they look similar but not when applied. 

I will be buying more soon. I just can't get enough of these. If there is a shade I must check out, please leave me a comment!

Have you tried these?

Zoya haul & swatches : LC, Elodie & Aurora

Hi Beauties!

Most of you took part when Zoya recently had their promotion. 3 colors free, just pay shippings. So it was 3 for $10 Which is awesome I think!
I of course had to take part in the promotion because I love Zoya. They are one of my favorite brands and most my polishes from them have came from some sort of promo. It's always so hard to choose what to get but I am happy to say I am LOVING the 3 I picked. They all are gorgeous. Great formula, quick drying, and they last.

*2 coats

*3 coats...could of went for 4 since its pretty sheer but I was content with 3.

 *2 coats. One picture is a little blurred to show you how sparkly it is. Gorgeous in the sunlight. 

I don't even know which is my favorite of these 3. They all are beautiful!

Did you take part in this Zoya promo?

MUA Nail Varnish: Bright Plum

Hi Beauties!

I have this little pretty to show you all. This is one of MUA's new nail varnish shades and it is such a fun color. It is a bright pink with a purple shimmer to it. What I love is the shimmer really stands out. It has a wonderful formula, needing only 2 coats for opacity and lasts a couple days for me. Since I change polish so much I don't know how long it could or couldn't last. My only gripe once again is the brush. Can't stand it but love everything else about this one.

You can find this and lots of other pretty colors:  HERE

*This was sent to me free for review.
