Nail of the Week!

As I mentioned on Twitter a few weeks ago, I got a new shade of Wet & Wild Mega Last nailpolishes in I need a refresh-mint.

I was really excited to try it since I love mint shades!

This week I decided to try it and was a little bit disappointment because it is more of a blue shade instead of mint.

Here is the bottle. As you can tell the shade is more bluish.

Here I am wearing the color! Even though it is not the mintiest shade, I still really like it! It’s a great color.

It’s still on sale at Walgreens for $.99 so it’s definitely worth a try!

Have you guys tried this color yet? Any thoughts?

Have a fabulous Saturday! ❤

April Favorites!

Happy May everyone! Flowers are blooming, the sun is out and it’s time to share my favorite items for the past month of April!

Some of these have been my favorites for a while now but since this is my first time doing this, I’ll share them 🙂

Garnier Smoothing Milk

I’ve been using this product for quite a while and I love it! I use it whether I’m going to straighten or curl my hair. It leaves the hair with a nice shine but not oily. It also smells great! The bottle bring a lot of product so they usually last me a while.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden

Thanks to my wonderful cousin, I was able to try this primer and I realized that everyone has always been right about the amazing quality of all these Primer Potions. I am very impressed by the amount of lasting ability it lets my eyeshadow have. I also really like the matte formula because it dries quickly and creates a great base for the eye shadow I apply.

MAC Russian Red

For a while I had been using the NYX Lip Creams and had forgotten about my precious MAC lipsticks until I decided to dust off my Russian Red and fell in love with it all over again. I can’t say enough good things about this lipstick because you guys already know that it’s one of my favorites! It’s great for a lot of skin tones and it looks great! If you’re looking for a great red color, give this one a try!

ELF Studio Brush and Bronzer Duo

This blush and bronzer duo is great! Especially for $3, you can’t beat it. The pigmentation is great and I’ve heard a lot of people say that it is a dupe for Nars! It does have shimmer so be careful with it! I contour with a matte blush and then apply this duo on top.

Wet & Wild Ultimate Brow Kit

Now I don’t tend to fill in my eyebrows very often but sometimes I feel like I have a few spots that need help or sometimes I cut a little too much hair and have gaps! I use the middle color and it works just fine! I stay away from the dark color since my hair is a little lighter. The gel is ok, not my favorite but for traveling, it works.

That’s all for my April favorites! Hope you all enjoyed it 🙂

Comment below what some of you favorites where!

I went light on my makeup bag with which is pretty impressive and I’m pretty happy with myself! I also knew that I would go shopping so downsizing the amount of clothes wasn’t that hard.

Is this a good list or should I have taken less? Tell me about how you all travel!

Wet & Wild Mega Last Nailpolish

I’m a big fan of finding a good nail polish at a good price and I think I have finally found the perfect nail polish at only $2! As I mentioned in my first blog about recent bought items I got a new shade of the Wet & Wild Mega Last nail polishes in Through the Grapevine! Today I applied the color and absolutely LOVE it! It’s a perfect plum color for spring!

My favorite part of this nail polish is the brush! It’s curved at the sides so it makes the application extremely easy. I’m also extremely impressed with the quality, color and staying power. This is the second shade I own from this line, first one I got was Tropicalia and it lasted almost two weeks! For this plum shade I applied 2 coats which by the way I could’ve gone with just one because the color is amazing!

This is the shade with flash!

And without! This is the more accurate color, the flash definitely gives it a more purple tone!

I hope you guys enjoy reading about this nail polish! It’s definitely worth a try at only $2! There are a lot of other colors available in the line so if you go try any of them please let me know how you like them!

Welcome & Recently Bought Items!

Welcome to my blog dedicated to makeup and fashion! I hope you all enjoy reading about what I love! Please visit the About tab to learn more about what you can find on this blog.

This weekend I got a few things that I am extremely excited about! I was in Jersey and got to visit one of my favorite drugstores: Harmon Face Value http://www.harmondiscount.com! It always has everything at great prices and some extra coupons available most of the time. My family and I also stopped by a cute boutique name Dor L Dor http://www.dorldornyc.com/ that was recommended by a friend.

List of what I purchased:

Garnier BB Cream (Harmon)

Garnier Fructis Curl Calm Down Cream (Harmon)

Wet & Wild Megalast Nailpolish (Harmon)

Revlon Photoready concealer (Harmon)

Black belt with bow detail (Dor L Dor)

Pink scarf (Dor L Dor)

1st and most exciting product is the Garnier BB Cream! I know that the reviews have been a little up and down but I wanted to give it a try especially since some of the spring heat is coming through. First impression after I took the product out was that the packaging lied! It clearly stated that the picture on the outside is the “actual size” but if you see the product, it’s not true! I’m going to just ignore that and focus on the product itself!

I will update you all once I try it for a few weeks 🙂

Price: $11.99 (Harmon Face Value)

Color: Light/Medium

I have been dying to try this product for a WHILE, but seeing it’s ~13 or more price tag always made me a little uneasy. Until I found it for $7.99 plus a $1 coupon off today at Harmon! I had to purchase it and I’m so excited to try it!

Price: $6.99 (Harmon Face Value) *price after coupon*

Color: Light/Medium

I’m adding this Curl Calm Down cream to my hair products for the summer since I plan to let my natural curls be in full swing! I already use the Smoothing Milk from Garnier, so I’m hoping this will be good to tame my mane!

Price: $3.29 (Harmon Face Value)

This will be the second bottle (other one I own is Tropicalia) of this nail polish that I buy and I absolutely love it! The different brush shape really makes a difference and the staying power is better than the Orly polish I have on now!

Price: $1.79 (Harmon Face Value)

Color: Through the Grapevine

When I saw this belt, I had to get it! I’ll post pictures when I incorporate this into an outfit.

Price: $8.99 (Dor L Dor)

Last item was this beautiful pink scarf! My friend had this on today at her Deli and the color was just beautiful! My aunt was nice enough to purchase this for me as a gift! Can’t wait to wear it!

Price: $9.99 (Dor L Dor)

Like I mentioned before, I’m really excited about all of these items!

Thank you to anyone that has taken the time to look at my blog, I really appreciate it and I hope you find something that you can relate to 🙂

If anyone has tried any of the products mentioned, please let me know how they worked out for you!

*All items mentioned were purchased by me with the exception of the scarf which was a gift from my aunt.*
