Pretty In Pink! Nails Of The Month For August

IMG_5405

Pink is my favorite color… however, I realized I hardly do many nail designs (or wear many fashion pink colored items) weird. I think when it comes to my nails, I love pink and how girly it is, but I like to experiment with color and fun designs. Pink is girly, but I don’t always want “girly” when it comes to my nails. Sometimes I like to be edgy.

Apparently, this month, I was going for the pink “girly” vibe. ­čÖé I say this every time I get my nails done… but… I. Am. Obsessed.

How soft and gorgeous these are in person is so amazing. Not to mention how SPARKLY! A picture doesn’t do them justice.

If you know me, you know I love my glitter! I love sparkles, I love shiny things, My highlighter has to be seen from space. I like to shine!! My nails are no different.

Hi, I’m like a cat and my attention is┬áimmediately drawn to anything glittery or sparkly. I catch myself staring at my nails and the pretty sparkles all the time! ­čÖé

Worth The Hype? Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. My Thoughts + Swatches

IMG_3671

This palette released just in time for those sizzling hot days of summer. I feel like I need to be in Miami sipping on frozen┬ámargaritas by the beach with this one. This warm toned palette looks very┬áfiery… ┬áVery hot. With that said, it also reminds me of the cool crisp days of the fall. The colors in the palette are very┬áversatile,┬áand, I think, perfect for both seasons.

The palette includes twelve shades and retails for $54. These shadows are all highly pigmented, bold, and stunning colors. The shadows range from mattes and shimmers with warmer orange and red toned hues. I think the packaging for this palette really suits and sums up what you expect the inside shadows to look like. This isn’t your “typical” Naked palette.

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Palette & Blush Palette Queen

IMG_2726I’ve had both of these palette’s for a little while now & have been meaning to let you guys know what my thoughts are on them. *insert face palm emoji here* Better late than never, right?

I’m not one to purchase a lot of drugstore makeup. It’s just a personal preference and I don’t find many brands that I like, or blow me away as I do with high end products. However, I do have a couple of ┬á brands I really do enjoy and buy products from: Milani, NYX, and more recently, Makeup Revolution.

Makeup Revolution is still pretty new to me. I think I “discovered” them a couple of months ago when I saw someone tag them in these gorgeous highlighters (Skin Kiss ones) on Instagram. I remember thinking the highlighters looked so good, the swatches I saw were so pigmented, so perfect. I ended up buying them… although, in the back of my mind I kept thinking, “How good could these really be?” I didn’t have high hopes.

Nails Of The Month For June

IMG_2812I am really slacking because I realized I never posted my nails from this month. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen them. If you read my last post, you got a sneak peak (ish) of them as a little bit of the design was shown while holding one of the products for that post.

Let me just say that the design I went with this month, was one I found from a nail tech on Instagram. He does amazing designs! Amy, (my nail tech) recreated the look perfectly. I am obsessed! Really, though, when am I not? ­čÖé Continue reading

Let’s Talk Scents : (FragranceNet.com)

IMG_2868I am obsessed with scents. I love things that smell great, candles, fragrances, you name it. I don’t know about you, but whenever I go into a Sephora, or Ulta, or any kind of store that sells perfume or fragrances… I always end up leaving smelling like a million different scents because I just can’t help myself and need to sample EVERYTHING.

I’m always looking for new fragrances that I’ll love. (Lots of times I find them just by getting those sample cards that come inside magazines) Sometimes I end up finding a scent just because I like the look of the bottle or the packaging looks nice. (I know, crazy… luckily I haven’t bought one yet that was a complete fail)

Jouer Skinny Dip Lip Topper & Highlighters

IMG_2574I was really excited to try Jouer Cosmetics highlighters. As you know, highlighters (lipstick & blush) are my obsession at the moment. Before I placed my order, I originally just had my eye on the new ‘Skinny Dip’ lip topper.

The pictures of that lip topper looked stunning! I own two other lip toppers from them and wanted to get Skinny Dip to add to my collection.

I think because I wanted the lip topper, I wanted to add the highlighter as well. I decided to go with an additional highlighter… well, because it was hard not to pick more than just one. ­čÖé

Pixi Beauty Peel & Polish Review

IMG_2500I was pleasantly surprised when I received this package from Pixi Beauty, who very kindly sent this out for me to try.

Pixi is a new brand for me. I’ve noticed this brand maybe, two months ago? I was in Target and had my eye on their Hydrating Milky Mist and Glow Mist. I was hearing wonderful reviews on them and kept debating if I should pick them up to give them a try.

I ended up not getting them… but I’m heading to Target this week and I do have them on my list. With that said, after trying this product, I am now very eager and excited to try other products from this company. (Which is why I will be heading to Target to pick up those mists. ) Continue reading
