Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac

Hey everyone!

Today I have some swatches of Sally Hansen's Lacey Lilac from the Xtreme Wear line to share with you all!

Lacey Lilac is a beautiful pale purple creme. The formula for this one was amazing, and it applied great! It was completely opaque in one coat, but I used two just because. This retails for about $2.50.

Zoya Rory

Hey everyone!

Today I have some swatches of Zoya's Rory to share with you all! Rory is from Zoya's Summer 2012 Surf Collection.

Zoya Zuza

Hey everyone!

I have some swatches of Zoya Zuza to share with you all today! Zuza is from Zoya's Summer 2012 Surf Collection. Zoya describes this shade as a "deep, saturated, oceanic turquoise with gold and silver metallic shimmer and a foil like finish. A beachy, colorful, foil like shade with the perfect balance between blue and green."

I think that this polish looks amazing! I absolutely love this turquoise color! The formula for this one was perfect. I had absolutely no problems applying it, and I probably could have gotten away with just using one coat, but I used two anyway.

SheInside!

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to introduce an awesome fashion site that I'll be reviewing some items from to you all! The website I'm referring to is SheInside, and it's an online women's clothing store that literally has thousands of items to choose from. They offer many different clothing styles so that almost anyone would be able to find something that they love!


The price of their clothing is pretty average. There are items on there that I think are a great deal, and some that I think are a little overpriced. It really just depends on what kind of items you're looking at!

To make my introduction to this website a little more interesting for you guys, I created a list of some of my favorite items from the site!

Here they are:

Monkey Nail Dryer

Hey everyone!

Born Pretty recently sent me a nail dryer to try out, and it's shaped like a monkey!! 

This nail dryer is amazingly cute! This works pretty good at drying one nail at a time, but I will say that the button is a little difficult to push down. Besides that, this makes a cute addition to my nail setup!

This retails for $8.15 at Born Pretty. (Free Shipping!)

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some swatches of Nicole by OPI's Kendall on the Catwalk to share with you all!

Kendall on the Catwalk is an awesome is a bright blue glitter with smaller specks of green and purple glitter in it! This polish is really pretty, but it looked super bright and crazy against my pale white skin!

This was a little hard to work with, since the formula was very thick. I used two coats!

This clip is super sparkly, and is a cute way to dress up an outfit. I also have thick, curly hair, and this stayed in place perfectly! (I usually have to fix my hair every few hours when I'm wearing something in it!)

December Favorites!

Hey everyone!

It's time for another monthly favorites post!

Here are the items that I was obsessed with in December:



Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Perfume
This perfume smells amazing! I'm usually drawn to more fruity scents, but when I first got this a little over a month ago, I instantly loved the floral and vanilla mixed scent that this has. If you haven't picked this one up yet, you definitely should!
 
 
 Eos Pomegranate Raspberry Lip Balm
I've been really into the eos lip balms for a couple of years now, and have almost all of the flavors. This was the newest one that I could find, so I've been using it non-stop!
 
 
I have really pale skin, and tend to look like a ghost over the winter months, so I usually try to apply a brighter/darker blush to give myself a little more color. I've had this in my stash for a couple of years now, but just never really paid it much attention until recently. The Bare Minerals blushes apply so smooth and blend amazingly! I'll definitely be using this one more often in the future!
Urban Decay Naked Basics palette
I have Urban Decay's other two Naked Palettes, so when I saw that they had a new one out, I had to try it. Since this is one of my newer palettes, I've been using it quite a bit! I really like using neutral shades, so this palette is perfect for me!

 
 
Clinique Chubby Stick in Curvy Candy
I have quite a few of these Clinique lip sticks, and this is one of my favorite shades. This pink color is so pretty! It gives you just enough color without being over the top. Plus, it's moisturizing and lasts a long time!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 For years, I was using Urban Decay's Primer Potion in the original shade, but recently, I decided to give the shade Eden a try. I love Eden way better than the original one! The nude color of the primer provides a nice base that helps make the colors pop!
 
 
Thanks for reading!!!
