Sally Hansen Insta-Ombre nail colors and now it's time to show you their other summer release- Pearl Crush. The Pearl Crush nail colors come in eight shades that will give your nails an iridescent look that's perfect for summer. These nail polishes are composed of a sheer nail color, tiny glitter particles, and large iridescent pearl-like particles. The Pearl Crush nail colors sound amazing in theory, but to they work? I have to say as excited as I was to try them out, these left me quite disappointed.
Bowie's Corner a few days ago, and now I'm going to introduce you to Buster's Bite. Buster is my 12 year-old chow chow, so you can rest assured that he's the best candidate to test out dog food. He's a picky guy too, there's been a few times where my family has purchased food for him that he has flat out rejected. Out of the food that he's tried out, his favorite is canned dog food that has chunks of meat and gravy. I was not expecting Chewy to send out a bonus item in my review package, but when I saw the case of Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Hearty Beef Stew Canned Dog Food I knew Buster would be the best candidate to try out new dog food.
Boxycharm video! If you don't know about this. Unlike other subscription boxes, the majority of products sent by Boxycharm are full-sized products. Products included in this box range from high-end to affordable, and they even include some vegan and cruelty-free options. This is one of the pricier beauty boxes but I've really enjoyed this service so far. This month's box includes 5 summer-ready products and spoiler: they're pretty great.
Ipsy bag. As simple as these videos are, I really enjoy filming them. I love how casual they are and I have to admit that I enjoy getting surprised by the products in the bag. This month's theme is "Swim Into Beauty" which is meant to include waterproof and summer-ready products. Will the bag live up to the greatness of the May bag? There's only one way to find out!
Every summer I look forward to Sally Hansen's nail releases. I always find that they come up with very interesting effects and fun colors for summer, and this summer is no exception. Ombre is a trend that doesn't look like it's going anywhere and Sally Hansen created an effortless way to get the trend without any of mess. You won't need any makeup sponges or stamping techniques to achieve the gradient effect that you're looking for! The new Insta-Ombre Special Effect Nail Colors are available in eight different glitter shades which allow you to achieve the look in three very easy steps. In this blog post I'm going to share four of the shades with you and you have to trust me when I say that they're amazing! These are definitely not your normal glitter nail polishes.
Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer is one of the most hyped about under eye concealers in the beauty community. Then we have the Fit Me Concealer which often gets compared to the pricey NARS concealer by bloggers and happens to be one of my holy grail concealers. Even their FaceStudio Master Conceal managed to gather rave reviews due to the fact that it has great coverage and a lightweight consistency. Now Maybelline is welcoming yet another concealer into their already amazing lineup. Will the new SuperStay Better Skin Concealer become Maybelline's next cult concealer? I have to say that this concealer has some pretty steep competition.
L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime CC Cream, I became very intrigued to see a skincare company's version of a CC cream. This CC cream contains peony extract which has skin perfecting qualities that are supposed to even skin tone and make it appear more radiant. In this blog post you'll find both my first impression review, and a more in depth review which includes comparison pictures.
Marc Jacobs #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder and the affordable Wet n Wild Color Icon Contouring Palette. How will they compare? Will they easily blend out? Will they look natural on my skin? What about the texture? There's a lot of thought that goes into comparing a drugstore product to a high-end one, but you can't deny that they look very similar. In this battle you'll see me apply each product on my face, and at the very end I will be crowning the first winner. Do I have anyone who's willing to place a bet?
Poshmark was going to be having an event, I decided to build up the courage to go to the event alone and meet other bloggers. Little did I know that I would meet some incredible people that night. Well Poshmark came back for round 2 and you know that I wasn't going to miss out on another Poshmark event. The best part of all? I got to enjoy the event worry free with my blogger friends! And I even got to meet some new faces too!
Color Sensational Creamy Mattes lipsticks. The Baby Lips range also welcomed their first non-lip balm product in the United States in the form of the Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss. And finally Maybelline released the Color Blur by LipStudio Cream Matte Pencil & Smudgers, which is inspired by the reverse gradient trend which is incredibly popular in Korea. In this blog post you'll get to see Maybelline's brand new lip product releases, swatches, and also get reviews on each product!
By now you all know what a huge lipstick addict I am. I easily have over 100 tubes of lipstick in my collection, and there's definitely no sign of stopping any time soon. Lipstick is the one makeup item that makes me feel like I can take over the world, and the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks certainly make me feel that way. These lipsticks have been available in the UK for some months now, and most recently were released for a limited time back in April in the United States. But don't you worry because the lipsticks will become permanent in North America come September and they will also become available at Nordstrom. I think it's time to start saving your pennies, because once you buy a Matte Revolution Lipstick you'll definitely want a few more.
Mika Chan Sailor. She is an incredible DIY enthusiast, fellow Lord of the Rings fan, and one of my best YouTube friends. I'm always blown away by her creativity, so when she asked me if I wanted to collaborate I said YES! In this video you'll get to see how I did my makeup, hair, nails, and I'll also show you my very casual outfit. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.
Ipsy's Generation Beauty event thanks to Pacifica. I got asked if I wanted to attend and of course I said YES! I was so excited to drive up to Los Angeles and see what the event was all about. There were so many brand booths and products to check out, it was like a makeup lover's paradise. In this video I will be sharing a mini vlog about the event, so you can see what it was like. I will also show you all the products that I bought and received at the event, trust me there was a bunch of makeup being handed out. And finally I will also share my opinion about the event, just in case any of you are interested in attending next year's event. Warning: This is a long video so grab yourself a drink and snack!
Pacifica. I was first introduced to Pacifica in my very first Ipsy bag that I received around 7 months ago and I've been hooked to the brand ever since. I've tried everything from body washes, nail polishes, concealers, and even fragrances. Fast forward to May of 2015 and Pacifica was the one who invited me to attend Ipsy's Generation Beauty event, it's funny how things work out sometimes. In this blog post I'm going to share my thoughts on two very summer-friendly products by Pacifica and one of you will get the opportunity to win them both!
