Blue Glitter Nails

20140621_151900I decided to do my nails. I used the Color Club topcoat and I used Soo Nails in the  color Kiss You One. Then I decided to add glitter to add more “bling” onto my nails.

Here are my final results. I really like how it looks and I feel like the glitter adds that extra touch to my nails. Now I hope that the glitter doesn’t fall off right away!

[Review] MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Mascara

This year Sephora’s birthday gift includes a sample size of MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Mascara. The full size version of this mascara retails for $24 for 0.23 at Sephora. I gave this mascara a try today and I have to say I absolutely love it.

I have to say that I love the shape of the brush. I love mascara brushes that are fat but thin near the front, I find that the thin tip in the front helps me get all the lashes near the corner of my eyes.

Here are my lashes right after I curled them. My lashes are on the short side and they are stick straight if I do not curl them.

Here are my lashes with mascara on them. As you can tell they are longer than before and they stand out more. I love this mascara for lengthening since they lengthened my lashes quite a bit. I also think that my lashes look a lot fuller in comparison to before and they do not clump.

Pros:

  • Lengthens my lash
  • Defined and separated lashes
  • Long lasting and did not smudge on me
  • Did not have a strong mascara smell

Cons:

  • A bit on the pricey side (Sephora sells this product for $24)

Overall, I absolutely love this mascara. I would repurchase (or purchase in my case) this product even though it is on the pricey side because I think that it does it’s job very well. I highly recommend this mascara.

[Review]Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick

The Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick was on sale at CVS so I decided to pick one up. I got it in the color Fairytale which is a gorgeous coral color. They retail for $7.99 at most drugstores.

Here is what the product’s packaging looks like. The packaging feels pretty sturdy and doesn’t cheap feel at all.

Here is a swatch of the color and it is an amazing coral color. It is pretty pigmented.

Here is a picture with the product on my lips. It is pretty pigmented however in the picture the lipstick looks more pink but in person the color is more coral.

Here is a picturer of my lips with the lipstick after six hours. I find that the lipstick stains the lips and after six hours there was still color on my lips.

Pros

  • Pretty affordable-$7.99 at most drugstores
  • Very pigmented
  • Pretty long lasting
  • Goes on pretty smoothly

Cons

  • Strange scent, kind of smells like Play-Doh
  • Not very moisturizing-I have to wear lip balm underneath

Overall, I would repurchase this product, I think that it is pretty pigmented and long lasting for such an affordable price.
