NARS nail polish in Sharks Right: REVIEW!

 Hello Stars! I'm back with another review, but this time it's about the NARS nail polish collection by Pierre Hardy from the summer of 2014 and they came in duos and this is from the Sharks duo that also came with a light Canary yellow color.   You can still find them on E-bay and Amazon at various prices if you are interested in obtaining this nail polish.
 Where can I start? I LOVE this product!! It's beautiful, the product itself is wonderful and well made.  My favorite thing about this nail polish? It is opaque in just one coat.  This is actually my first go with the purple of this nail polish, I had tried the yellow before and had liked it, so I'm pleased that this one is so nice too.  Generally NARS nail polishes run about $20 a pop but you can find this duo on Amazon for about $14, I just ordered myself a new color from the collection and Super Orgasm nail polish. Super Orgasm is my all time favorite blush so I figured I would try the nail polish.
The application process was amazing too, it is a bit thick but not gloopy thick and nothing that wiping the brush doesn't fix. All in all, I'm really really REALLY happy with this product and as soon as I try the other ones I will let you know what I think of the other nail polishes I ordered. The other nail polish on my pointer finger is a Butter London polish in silver glitter.
Have you tried any of the NARS nail polishes, what do you think of them? XOXO

Colour Pop! Initial Reaction

My Colour Pop package arrived today and I am so excited to be sharing them with you! I got six eyeshadows and two lip colors and they are just so beautiful, I just sat there and looked at them for a good five minutes before I even swatched them and *drools* OH MY GOD they are so buttery and beautiful and pigmented and soft and sparkly and beautiful. Here, just look at the pictures below.
 I went with more metallicy colors because that's what I wanted. I got a gold, a bronze, a light gold, a rose gold, silver, and a white.  I love rose gold! If you have any rose gold things you love, comment down below because I would love to try it out!
I ot the lippy sticks in Rocket and Juicy- Rocket is a very neon bright pink and Juicy is a bright pink as well but leans towards the more every day sort of pink shade but is still shockingly bright.
 I can't think of the exact names right now but from left to right is the white, light gold, gold, silver, rose gold, and bronze.   They are so creamy and a dream to swatch.  The texture is very pillowy and soft and definitely something you need to apply with your fingers or a very fluffy brush.
Have you tried Colour Pop? If not, you should because the pricing is amazing- their eyeshadows and lippy sticks are $5 and their blushes are $8 so they are definitely worth checking out and trying :) XOXO

Product I regret buying: E.L.F. Moisturizing Stick Foundation

 A few months back I had done an E.L.F. Haul and got three of their foundations, one being the Moisturizing Stick Foundation. When I tested it on my hand, it seemed perfect- creamy, good coverage, moisturizing yet not greasy.  Then I tried it on and boy was I way beyond disappointed.
 Not only was it difficult to apply, both straight from the stick, with a brush, and with a sponge so I did try my hardest to find a way to make it work.  Needless to say, nothing worked. I was just so disappointed because the other two that I ordered, the Acne Foundation and the Cream compact, work beautifully and don't hang onto the dry patches.  For the stick foundation all I have to say is STAY AWAY.  It clings to every little dry patch even if you moisturized right before you applied the foundation.  Talk about frustrating. First I tried it with just my fingers and that didn't work, then I tried to apply it with the stick straight to my face.  This method didn't work either because then it really clung to the dry patches on your face as well as accentuating those little baby hairs that we can't really do anything about but most women (myself included) are self conscious of those little baby hairs.  This foundation just makes them stick out like a sore thumb.  The buffing brush is where I got the best application but it was still patchy at best.
So, my final verdict is to pass on this product and try either the Revlon Photo Ready Stick foundation or the Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation. XOXO

The Palette Roundup!

Hello my bright shiny Stars! I'm getting back to the regular posting whether it's a blog post or a video review or collection. This is my palette collection and, disclaimer time, in no way am I trying to brag or be like 'oooh look at all my palettes'. No. I bought all of these palettes with my own money except for one, which was my first palette. Disclaimer over.  I made this video to show that you don't have to be palette loyal to one brand nor do you have to have every single palette, I know I have a lot but I don't own every palette out there.  I hope you guys enjoy this video and don't forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and to subscribe for more videos! XOXO
