Fall/Winter Polish Picks :)

Photobucket

Hey Guys!

So I know it might be a little late but i wanted to share my nail polish picks for Fall and winter. I have three categories and they might not be totally appropriate but they work out pretty well. Anyway, My basis of the polishes i picked were just the ones that i've been reaching for the entire season. Anyway, here are my picks :) And FYI. These do range in brands :)

Photobucket
REDS
• OPI's Red Hot Gift: This is a classic red and i think that everyone needs a good red. This polish is just the one that ive been loving at the moments. I personally think that this works well for everyone.

• China Glaze's Seduce Me: Now i know what you're thinking, this is totally not a red but i really love this. Its a nice and dark color but its still fairly feminine. Its perfect for those days that you wanna feel girly. Again, this is still a must have for fall/winter

Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia: Since glitters are quite in this season, then Facets of Fuchsia is perfect. This is dark but it is really pretty. This is suppose to be a dupe for Deborah Lippman's Bad Romance. It looks like purple from afar but when up close, its fuchsia color really shows through.



Photobucket
TAUPES
Sephora's City Amazon: This is a gorgeous gray color. i think this is a true "gray". Its not too warm or too cool but it works pretty well on me. Its also a really opaque color. Its a great concrete color :)

• China Glaze's Below Deck: This is one of the first taupes that i really love. It has a purple hue to it and it makes it a great color for fall. Its another great cream opaque color.

• OPI's You Dont Know Jacques: Ive always worn this color for a while! Its very nice and opaque and its a nice classic OPI color. Its a brown shade that has a gray tint to it and i just LOVE it :)



Photobucket
BRIGHTS:
• OPI's Mermaid's Tears: Now you might think that this is a little too bright for fall but since it has a kind of gray color to it, Its nice and murky so it makes it pretty appropriate for fall.

Deborah Lippman's I Know What Boys Like: This is another color that you guys might think is a little too bright for fall. But since it is a self proclaimed "Blurple" Its pretty dark enough to pull of during the fall/winter. Ive been wearing a lot of dark colors for the season and a nice pop of color is great, even on the nails.

• OPI's Skull and Glossbones: This is a very awesome gray color. I didnt put this with the "Taupes" because i felt that this was too bright to be a taupe. This makes me think of a gray but more on the white side. This makes it really nice and versatile for fall. I wear some deep colors sometimes for fall and wearing this can really blend in nicely with my outfits.

Sephora's City Amazon :)


Photobucket

Hey Guys :)

Im back with another nail polish post and this one is a surprising one. My friend got me this trio of nail polishes a long time ago for my birthday and i didnt really get a chance to use them until now. Theyre a trio of Sephora nail polishes. Im not one to usually get the Sephora nail polishes but from what I can see, they seem like good quality. So anyway, lets get to the nail polish :)

Photobucket


Photobucket

So this color is called City Amazon. its a gorgeous kind of concrete gray color and its a nice creamy gray color. Its VERY opaque. I always apply 3 coats but this time i only applied 2 coats. The formula of it is kind of thick but im sure it was just because of the thicker brush. I think this is a rather appropriate fall polish and i really love it :)

Anyway, let me know what you guys think of this polish.

till later

OOTD: Hello Kitty Chic ♥

Photobucket

Hey Guys :)

So I wanted to share with you guys my OOTD and this is by far my most FAVORITE for the entire fall season. If you guys arent aware, Forever 21 had a collection out that featured Hello Kitty. Since i am asian and being asian means that you immediately have a Hello Kitty obsession. I actually first saw this collection at the store in Times Square. I KNEW i had to pick up atleast one thing. To be honest, i wasnt so amused except for one thing. I only got the one cardigan that has a kind of dusty rose color with bow patterns. I took a picture of the pattern and you can see that it has subtle hints of the famous cat :)

Photobucket


Photobucket

Anyway, I decided to look a little more sophisticated for this so i decided to wear a white shirt from F21 and i wore a bondage skirt from Arden B. It was a little cold so i went and wore some tights with it. It looked a little took dark so i went ahead and wore brown boots.


Photobucket


Let me just say how many compliments i had! from both boys and girls! The boys were interested in the pattern which is actually really funny lol.

Anyway, heres is a quick break down on what i wore

• Cardigan - Forever 21
• Shirt - Forever 21
• Skirt - Arden B
• Tights - Betsey Johnson
• Boots - Steve Madden

Anyway, let me know what you guys think about my outfit in the comments :)

November Favorites of '11 :)

Hey Guys :)

Photobucket

So Im incredibly late on this but here are my November Favorites. Its been a while since ive done a post on my favorites only because i was a little busy and i havent really been changing my make up routine. But now that the weather here in New York is getting much MUCH colder, My make up changes along with it. Anyway, here are my favorites.

Fragrance:
Signature Vanilla: Apricot - Ive been really love this. I feel like its musky vanilla-y scent makes it awesome for winter. Ive been super dry specially because of the cold, I feel more moisturized with this scent. It lasts SO long too! I never really liked it until now



Photobucket
Face:
MAC Studio Fix Powder - So I have been reaching for this SO many times this season. All ive been doing is putting a little foundation on any "necessary" areas and i blend it out with this powder. So I havent been wearing as much foundation and this is all that im wearing. Ill have a more in depth review of this soon :)

NARS Blush in Exhibit A - Before you say anything, i know you might think that this is a little too bright for fall but I seriously do love it. I feel like i look nice and "flushed" which i do like. I dont get "red" during the cold weather and with the blush, i can :)




Photobucket
Eyes:
Stila Eyeshadow in Tolima - I have been reaching for this all month. I used to as a crease color. i dont usually like using this for summer because of its grayish undertone, but since its more appropriate for the season then i use it more :) It goes with a lot of the shadows that i like wearing.
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk - Ive always been using this but i havent showed it in a post yet. I use this for everything! Waterline, eyeshadow base, brow bone highlight and inner corner highlight. Its the most versatile make up product that i have. Im surprised that I havent run out of it yet lol




Photobucket
Lips:
Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle - This has been in my bag ever since i bought it. I never really thought that i would like it but it looks SO perfect with my skin tone. its a nice pinkish nude color and again, its an amazing product :)
Revlon Lip Stick in Blush - Yet another nude color. Again, its just another easy color that i dont need to worry about. I just put it on even without a mirror. Anyway, i personally think this is my favorite nude lipstick :)
Tarte LipSurgence in Perky - So this was the only lip tint that i was excited about in that set that i got and i had every right to be excited. It feel great on the lips but it provides such a great color too. its a super nice pink on my lips even though it seem like a peachy color. Its fairly sheer but i still love it :)



Photobucket
Brushes
Sigma Foundation Brush F60 - Since i havent been wearing such a crazy layers of foundation, i only use it for smaller areas. I therefore needed something tinier to apply it with. Ive been reaching for this for the past month. Its pretty good but i think there are better ones. this is just the ones ive been using the most.


Anyway, let me know what you guys love this past month in the comments :)

OPI's Rally Pretty Pink :)

Hey Guys :)
So i havent posted much nail polish related posts and im sorry for that lol Let me break the cycle and present OPI's Rally Pretty Pink.

Photobucket

This was a part of the Serena Williams collection and i searched high and low for this. Since I didnt have an Ulta near me (until now :D) I had to really look for this. I actually found this in Nordstrom Racks and i was a little hesitant but im pretty glad i got it :)

Anyway, on to the polish, i was a little confused that it was called a "pink" From the swatches that i saw online, I thought it looked like a maroon with a bronze shimmer. I wasnt wrong about the bronze part, but the maroon was really wrong. In some lights, i saw the pink in it and it is really is "rally pretty" (gotta love the pun) I was at the gym and i just happened to look down on my nails, and all i saw was this gorgeous gold color. Safe to say that this polish is one of the most unique polishes ive ever seen.

Photobucket

As for its formulation, it look about 2 coats to get it to this opacity but i always have a "3 coat" policy. It lasted pretty long without any major chipping. It didnt actually chip at all and i had it on for about a week.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think of this polish in the comments :)

NOTM: Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia :D

Photobucket

Hey Guys :)
So im here today with what im wearing today. Its Revlon's new Facets of Fuchsia nail polish. If you saw my Revlon haul. You'll see that i picked this up and some other polish which i will do a post on soon. But anyway, this one is all about Facets of Fuchsia.

Photobucket

The blog-a-spheres have been buzzing about this polish because this is the most amazing dupe to Deborah Lippman's Bad Romance. Im not one to shell out $18 bucks for a nail polish but i wouldnt mind $4 :)

This polish is in a jelly based black polish. Its a little sheer at first but at the second coat, it was opaque as you can see now. Unlike the Deborah Lippman polish, this polish has big circular magenta-ish purple glitters and smaller glitter flecks. The DL one (from what i can see from the blogs) has hexagonal glitters. I heard that the DL one is more darker too but besides the differences (which dont really notice much), the polishes are pretty much the same :)

Anyway, let me know what you think of this polish in the comments :)

Anyway, i was determined to pick this polish up so i was looking everywhere for it. Im glad i found it at the Duane Reade near me :) Anyway here are the things i got.

Photobucket
1. Facets of Fuschia - This is the polish thats suppose to be the Deborah Lippman dupe. It might not have the same formulation as the DL one but it looks EXACTLY like it! Ill have a post on this soon :)


Photobucket
2. Blue Mosaic - I picked this polish on a whim. I didnt think think i was gonna like it but i really do. it has a lot of different chunks of glitter and ill definitely do a post too :)

Im totally glad about all the polishes i picked up! Im glad i finally got rid of my Deborah Lippman Bad Romance craving :)

Anyway, let me know in the comments, which of the 2 is your favorite :)
