Morning everyone! Lately I’ve noticed that reviewing makeup notwithstanding, I’ve fallen into a rut with my makeup looks – I tend to play it safe with neutrals & browns or neutrals & purples. I mean, yeah, play to your strengths but I need to stretch myself a bit.
That’s how this makeup look with Glamour Doll Eyes Dreamboat and Cozy Sweater with Jesse’s Girl Sounds of the City eyeshadow palette came about. I’ve also used an untried lippie from Jordana, Cinnamon Toast from the Sweet Cream Matte line. Continue reading
Morning everyone! I worked on comparison posts this week with unicorn pee polishes – so called because the pigment used to make them is so rare. Today I have one of the newest on the market: ILNP The Magician to go up against a similar polish, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn [previously swatched].
Ugh you guys. 😦 Do you ever have a polish that you just want to love because it’s so darn pretty but in reality is the worst, most awful applying polish ever?? Yes, that’s today’s experience with Morgan Taylor Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My.
Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My is a dark purple based polish with glitters of purple, blue, lilac (somehow no red though? lol). Formula was so gloopy and clumpy. It does dry textured because of the glitters. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
Even looking at my pictures, I really love it! It just goes to show you that you can’t always judge a polish by its pictures. 😦
Hi everyone! I have two more Kandee Johnson polishes to show you today – these are both “sugar” finishes aka textured polishes. Here are Mint Sugar and Pink Sugar.
Mint Sugar is a minty-green textured polish with gold shimmer. Formula is of good consistency. This is 2 coats.
Pink Sugar is a bright pink textured polish (no shimmer). Formula is of good consistency but uneven application. This is 2 coats.
These are nice additions to my collection but I wish Pink Sugar would have had some sort of shimmer in it. Your thoughts?
Morning everyone! Another Wednesday is here – yay? LOL! 😛 Today I have two polishes from Pretty & Polished to show you: Her Majesty, Royal Purple and Brisky Business.
Her Majesty, Royal Purple [gift] is a blue-tinged purple polish. Formula was wonderful, it goes on evenly and dries matte. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Brisky Business is from the Winter 2016 collection [my partial review]. This is a blurple based shimmer polish that shifts from purple to blue with a tinge of red, with color shifting flakes. Formula was a bit thin; it does dry matte. This is 1 coat plus top coat over HMRP. (Please excuse the huge chip in my bottle, Mrs Butterfingers over here.)
Though I was expecting a bit more from Brisky Business, it still is a gorgeous polish – well both of them are, to be honest!
Morning everyone! I hope you had a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day weekend. 🙂 Today I have a manicure using Zoya Zooey and August, Girly Bits Cosmetics What Happens In Vegas Ends Up on Twitter, and a KBShimmer water slide decal.
I started with Zoya August on my pointer and pinky fingers. August is a cool grey creme polish. Formula is thin and runny. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
On my ring finger, I used Zoya Zooey [gift]. Zooey is a textured peachy pink polish with gold shimmer and iridescent glitter. Formula is good, application was smooth. Shown is 2 coats and no top coat. Continue reading
Hey Hey and a lovely Sunday to you! Last Sunday I showed you the product photos and swatches of the Wet N Wild Queen of My Heart collection. You’ve seen makeup looks with the Hieroglyphic Heart eyeshadow palette, and with the Will You Marina Me palette; today you get to see a makeup look with the Heart and Heavy eyeshadow palette.
