China Glaze - Peachy Keen

Hey guys,
this is my RAVE for China Glaze's Peachy Keen.
Let me just first talk about the formulation and all the boring stuff. I felt that the formula was a little streaky but it was fairly opaque after 2 coats but i could still see my nail lines. I dont know about you guys but when i wear a creme color, i want it to be totally opaque that i cant see my nail lines. Well that 3rd coat really got it for me :)

Photobucket

Now lets talk about the color. I actually thought this wouldnt look like anything special, but when i got it. I just stared at it for about a good 3 minutes. It is such a unique color! Theres actually something that reminds me of this color. It reminds me of when you mix ketchup and mayo together LOL (ah, nostalgia) But anyway, its like a super nice pastel coral. It seems like it would be a nude, but its very bright! like brighter than what i expected. I noticed that it made my nails really pop even though they seem so "neutral" It also went with alot of my outfits, from bright florals or even a simple all black outfit.

Photobucket

So let me know how you guys feel about this :)
till later

Spring Lips: NYX - Rose

Photobucket

Hey Guys, So like i said from my last Spring Lips Post which was forever ago, (if you still wanna see it, its on ELF's Gypsy Lipstick) Were into the brights section of this series. Its gonna be full of so many bright lippies that its gonna BLIND you lol

I first wanna say that im SO sorry i slacked on this series. I have a few more posts and these the up coming posts are actually my favorite so far :)

Photobucket

So anyway, enough chit chat. On the the lipstick :) So this is NYX's Rose lipstick. Its in their $2 dollar range or $4, depends on whos selling them :) This is a more of a "dark" bright color because its like a brighter red color. Its a creme shade so absolutely no shimmers. Since this lipstick is from their Round Lipstick line, i can tell you that its VERY moisturizing and its very pigmented too. It leaves kind of a glossy finish. I always feel like it doesnt last too long because its SO light but it actually lasts for a good maybe 2-4 hours.

Photobucket


Photobucket
Now for the color, i already mentioned that its a red color, but i would think of it like MAC's Viva Glam Cyndi but much more pigmented. Its like the amplified version of it. I would think this would look great with a simple winged eyeliner :)

So how do you guys feel about this color?
let me know in the comments.

I have a post on my Bare Lips if you want to see how pigmented these really are.

I promise ill do more posts soon :)
till later

OPI - What's With The Cattitude

Photobucket

Hey guys,

this is OPI's What's With The Cattitude. It was released with the Shrek Forever After Collection last year i believe. Its a very VERY bright light blue, it was so hard to take a picture of it because it was too bright. But anyway, i would describe it as a "Sky Blue on a Sunny Day" Type of blue. Its just that bright! Some have said that its more like a Robin's Egg type color and i would agree. It looks a lot like the Chanel nail polish Nouvelle Vague. Now for the formulation, despite what you see on the bottle (Mine looks like its separated and sheer) its quite opaque for a light color and we all know how hard it is to have an opaque color. This took a good 3 coats and im very picky about my creme polishes.



Photobucket

Anyway, final thoughts, i love it. Its amazing for spring and its a nice pastel color. What do you think about this color? :)

till later :)

Spring Lips: ELF - Gypsy

Photobucket

Hey guys, We are now entering the Brights section of my Spring Lips series. If you haven't seen my other posts, just do the clicky thing there :)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Anyway, i know ive been posting a lot of lippies that are more or less "High End" so this time i have a lot of upcoming posts that are very affordable :) Just like this one. This is an ELF Lipstick, and its called Gypsy. Its a creme sort of magenta color. its very opaque. I would say that this is for one of those days that you wanna go lazy on your eye make up :) I actually reach for it when i have a super simple eye.



Photobucket

Check out my Bare Lips for a reference of how pigmented this really is.

My Lucky Nail Polish: OPI's Cozu-melted in the Sun :)

Photobucket

Hey guys,
So I just wanted to share with you guys my favorite/lucky nail polish. Its OPI's Cozu-melted in the Sun. Im not sure if i already did a post on this but whatever, this polish needs more recognition. Well i call this my "Lucky" nail polish for many different reasons. This is bottle is actually the 1st bottle i ever bought that i took a chance on. This was the first polish that i picked up on a whim. It opened my eyes to polish and it made me say "Hey, why not?" a lot more towards polishes.

So anyway, i call it my "Lucky" polish because the first time i wore this polish, i had nothing but good luck come my way. I aced so many of my tests and ever since then i always wore this on a big tests. I wore it this week because i had an Advanced Placement test (AP) for Biology. I worked SO hard for this test, but i figured it'll be nice to have a little luck on my side, and weirdly enough i did have some luck! :D

Photobucket

Anyway, enough babbling about my life, lets talk about the polish! Contrary to what you see in the bottle, this is A LOT more opaque. Its a very nice shimmery/glittery color. I would describe it as a bright peachy color with a tinge of coral. its quite unique. I would think that its work appropriate for those who cant wear extravagant colors. From a far, you'll see that it looks like kind of a normal color but you'll see some fine silver glitters. Its not like a "BAM!" glitter, its more like "Oh, yeah im here too" glitter. It doesnt over power the color, it actually accentuates it :)

Photobucket

So how do you feel about my Lucky nail polish :)
leave it in the comments.

Till later <3

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Haul :D

Photobucket

Hey guys :D
This is a joyous occasion :) I finally was able to get my hands on the new OPI Pirates of the Caribbean polishes! Lemme just tell you guys how LONG i had to wait to get these polishes. I had to wait because well i dont have an Ulta anywhere near me, and the beauty supply places that i get my polishes in didnt have it. It took them a whole month of calling and annoying the people in the store till one day. Right after my test, I called up nonchalantly and asked if they had it. The lady (she was SO sweet too!) i asked her when they were coming in and she said theyre in now. She even set aside a full set of the collection for me. I wanted to get ALL of it but i had some self control that day. Ill probably be picking up the others too LOL

So anyway here are the polishes that i got. Probably didnt need them but oh well lol

Photobucket

1. Mermaid Tears - This is probably one of the most coveted ones from the collection and i was able to get my hands on one! :D SOO HAPPY! Its a nice murky kind of turquoise color. It kinda reminds me of a nice seafoam color.

Photobucket

2.Skull & Glossbones - Its a nice kind of creamy gray color. it reminds me of a lighter colored concrete color. Its really unique. I actually have never seen a color like this before. I cant wait to put my shatter on this :)

Photobucket

3. Planks a Lot - This is a really cool toned purple. I thought that when i got this, it would look like Parlez-Vous OPI or Done Out In Deco but it doesnt actually. I looked at my collection and i saw that it was REALLY unique from my collection. I dont have anything like it. Cant wait to try it :)

Photobucket

4. Stranger Tides - This is actually the one polish that I picked up last minute. Its SO hard to describe. It kinda reminds me of seaweed? kind of? i dont really know. I didnt like it from any of the swatches online but when i saw it in person, i HAD to have it. I actually already tried this. I have this on my nails right now and its awesome! it took about 2 thin coats to get a good opaque coat :) VERY pleased with it

Photobucket

So here is my final Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. Well not about to be final because i think ill be picking up the other two.

Photobucket


But thats it :)
leave a comment below on what you think about the collection. I loved it more than i thought i would.
So see you guys at the next post :)

Recent NARS Purchases :D

Hey Guys, i know. Long time no post, but now im back (for a little) and i have a new post for you guys :)

Photobucket
So its spring. FINALLY, and so many companys are coming out with their own spring collection. Personally, i got SO tired of MAC's collections. Dont get me wrong, they look nice and all but i feel like theyre the same thing over and over and over.....

Just when i was about to give up, i saw NARS' collection. It doesnt look very "spring" like but there were 2 products that i just HAD to have. So here are my purchases :)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

I picked up their eyeshadow duo in Dogon. Like i said, its not the most spring like thing ever but it looks unbelievable beautiful. i know im gonna get a lot of uses out of it. It comes with this really pretty kind of duoochrome nutty shade and a black metallic shade with hints of turquoise. It really swatches more like a black. Well swatches and reviews soon :)

Photobucket

The other thing that i got was one of their Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero. I only got this because this is the Matte twin sister of MAC's Ever Hip and i unfortunately was unable to get it from the recent fashion flower collection. I still have my other one but im saving it. I actually tweeted a swatch of them next to each other and its pretty damn close

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

So thats it, i still have a long list of NARS things to buy but right now, im very content with all my purchases. They just made my NARS obsession grow even more!

So what do you think about my new purchases? leave it in the comments below :)

China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint

Photobucket

Hey guys, this is China Glaze's Re-Fresh Mint. This is my unofficial Spring nail polish. You have no idea how much ive been reaching for this. First i wanna talk about the name. My stupid self thought this was such a random name, but then i realized that it was "Refreshment". It was like an "Aha!" moment for me lol I actually have this on my nails as im typing this :) These something about nice mint nails that gets to me.

Photobucket

Ive tried alot of mints but this is without a doubt my favorite. Just when i think i can dupe it, i cant. Well its just a very nice and unique mint color. Its more pastel but still bright. I dont know why there wasnt so much hype about it because its one hell of a color :) The formulation is pretty good. It was opaque with 2 coats but i still went with a 3rd light coat. Lemme just tell you how much this color pops! with any outfit. I wore a striped neon pink shirt and people noticed my nails still :D Im very pleased with this polish. i really wanna get a back up of this because ive been using it way too much :)

Anyway, tell me what you feel about this polish :)

till later <3
Check out my Minted Leopard Nails. I used this polish, I think you guys would like it :)


On another note, i started listening to this song again. its Stacy's Mom By Fountains of Wayne. I actually started listening to it again because me and my friends were talking about our futures and my friend said "I wanna be like Stacy's Mom from the song" HAHA! i couldnt stop laughing!
Well now enjoy the song :)

Spring Lips: NARS - Orgasm :)

Photobucket

Hey Guys, so this is my next Spring Lips installment :) and i am featuring NARS' Orgasm. Ill give you a slight pause for this very provocative name. We're all very aware of NARS and theyre unbelievable make up brand. Theyre mostly famous for their blushes but of course they have other stuff too :) Their lip glosses arent the most amazing things in the world but theyre pretty good. Theyre amazingly pigmented and theyre pretty 3-dimensional.

Photobucket

Orgasm is a light peachy color with a very visible gold shimmer. As you can see from my picture, it blanks out my lips pretty well and im just wearing just the gloss and pretty pigmented for a light lipgloss. and well i have pretty pigmented Bare Lips. So all in all, im very impressed by this :) The only cons to this is that i dont like the scent or lack of scent and i also dont like the applicator. My lips are pretty big and the applicator doesnt fit my gigantic ass lips lmao. but other than that, its pretty good

Photobucket

Photobucket

Check out my last post on my Spring Lips series on MAC's Ever Hip

So thats it for now guys :) look out for my next post <3

OPI's Silver Shatter and Some Combos :D

Hey guys,
So I have a tiny story for you guys. Well as you guys know, the Pirates of The Caribbean OPI collection came out recently. Im LOVING all of the colors there. Im still looking for the regular colors but if you didnt know, they released it with a Silver Shatter polish. Well, this polish is limited edition i believe so i knew i wasnt gonna get it. specially because it took me about a good 6 months until i got the black shatter. I actually looks all over New York City just looking for that polish. I eventually gave up. Well, today i actually went to go to a Beauty Supply store that i knew would never have the shatter polishes. I went in to buy some skin care things but then in the corner of my eye. I saw it, it was the Silver Polish. They had the Black Shatter too! Isnt that weird? the day i gave up on my search, i found it :D

Well anyway, enough babbling. Black to the polish :D
I find with the OPI crackles, as time goes on, its crackle becomes more like how its shown on the cap
Photobucket


Here is the polish :) I have a feeling since it has a shimmer, it doesnt crackle just as well but ill keep you guys updated.
Photobucket


Here are the combos i kinda just thought would look nice with the silver shatter


This is the shatter with China Glaze's Aqua Baby. I thought a nice creme aqua would look nice against the shimmer. and it kinda does.
Photobucket


This one is Maybelline's Summer N Spice. It wanted a nice kind of copper and silver contrast so i picked a metallic color. its not bad :)
Photobucket


This is it with OPI's Jade is The New Black. Ive tried this with the black shatter and i didnt like it as much, i was kinda hoping that the silver would make the green pop. It does a little but then again, i did put a really thick coat by accident
Photobucket


This is it with OPI's Parlez Vous OPI, I wanted what it looked like with a light color. Its actually not so bad. This is my second favorite combo.
Photobucket


This is it with China Glaze's Scarlet. This is what i picked up first. Only because i knew that i wasnt gonna be able to get the red shatter, i figured putting a red base would look nice. and it DOES! this is my favorite combo! expect a post on this :)
Photobucket

So tell me which one you like :)

Photobucket

Have you gotten any of the crackle polishes? If you havent, then you really should get on the band wagon :)

So thats it for polish talk, let me share with you guys my recent song obsession. Im loving Lupe Fiasco right now :) and this is just one of the songs im loving. Just click play and start loving it

Spring Lips: MAC - Ever Hip :)

Photobucket


Hey guys, so im back with another one of my Spring Lips posts. Im here again with a MAC Lipstick. This is also limited edition but im posting this now because its getting repromoted by MAC's Fashion Flower Collection thats coming out this April 28th, 2011 so if you like it, go out and get it when it comes out. Well this specific lipstick is Ever Hip.

Photobucket

I was actually really lucky that i got a hold of it the last time it came out the first time in the Liberty Of London Collection. This is a Cremesheen finish so its fairly pigmented. Check out my Bare Lips for a reference of how pigmented they are.

Photobucket

Photobucket

To be totally honest, i LOVE it. Its pretty light but it works amazingly with my skin tone. It might be a little light for darker skin tones but its still really gorgeous. I think it might work as a peachy nude.

Photobucket

But if i need a brighter cream colored lipstick, this is what i reach for. This is actually my most used lipstick as you can see from how short it is LOL.

But anyway, please pick this up when you get the chance. I guarantee you wont regret it. Its a lovely shade to have in your collection.

Please check out my last Spring Lips post on MAC's Fresh Salmon

till later :)
