Julie G Passion

Happy Friday loves!

 

How are you all?! I figured I would change up this week and do my Mani day today instead. (Back to the old days!)

So in my last post, I mentioned that I bought some nail polishes at the .99 cent only store and oh dear lord, I love them! It also helps that its pretty darn cheap! I only paid .99 compared to going to Rite Aid and paying $3.99 or so.

I really love this color and how it changes color in the sun.

Essie Merino Cool

Happy Monday loves!

Don’t you love going to your friend’s house and playing around with her makeup and polishes! I was with a friend and noticed her polish and I loved it. So when I went to her house, I ended up doing my nails there.

This week I’m wearing the Essie Merino Cool. I’ve only purchased one Essie product my whole life and that was the matte top coat (sadly was not worth it!).

This is a dark taupe shade and it’s such a pretty color for the summer, especially when you don’t want to go with the usual pastels.

Julep Maven Introduction Box and Review

Hi loves! I hope all is doing well. 🙂

This is a very late post but hey its better late than never. About a month ago, I had gotten an email about trying the Julep Maven box and only pay 2.99 shipping. So I figured I would try it out to see what the hype was all about.

2nd set

What I received:

*”Jet” from the It Girl collection- a creme dark black

*”Queen Anne” from the It Girl collection- a lilac confetti microglitter that does feel like there is a texture. Kind of like cat’s tongue or feels lighter than sandpaper.

*”Tatiana” from the collection Boho Glam- a golden burnt orange microglitter which is also a glitter.

* I also had gotten a gel eye glider in the shade Smoky Taupe Shimmer. I love this gel liner because it’s simple but yet makes a statement.

What do you guys think? Does any of you order from Julep Maven? 🙂

 

Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy 460 Hold ‘Em

Happy Friday loves!

I hope you all are enjoying your Friday and looking forward to the weekend! 🙂

I’ve really been into the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy polishes at the drugstores. I only have 2 colors at this point but boy do I plan to buy some more! lol

The color I’m wearing is called 460 Hold ‘Em and it’s a beautiful medium cream mauve shade and when you top it with the Diamond Top Coat, it works wonders! It really does give you a strong shine to your colors even if you don’t use it on a Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy polish.

CoverGirl Glosstini 600 Sulfur Blaze

Hi Loves!

Hope you’re all having a great week and good luck to everyone taking their final exams. 🙂

For the past few weeks, I’ve seen both Target and CVS Pharmacy have the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis on clearance. At CVS, they’re 50% off and at Target it’s $1.49! Definitely a great steal! I bought this color at Target for only $1.48 and I’d be surprised to go back and see a few shades left. It turns out that this line is actually a limited edition Hunger Games called “Limited Edition Capitol Collection”.

Today, I’m wearing the shade 600 Sulfur Blaze. It’s a very vibrant yellow gold with gold glitter. It’s a great color statement and perfect for the summer.

cvg sulfur blazeI definitely can’t wait next week to see what shade I’ll be wearing for this Friday Manicure series.

 

Sinful Colors Shine In The Limelight

Happy Friday Loves!

While I was at Walgreens a few days ago, I had found a new line of the Sinful Colors nail polish. It’s called the Sinful Shine with Gel Tech and I was intrigued by this specific shade. The shade is called In The Limelight 1233. I have to say I love this! I never thought I’d buy a lime green polish but I wanted to get out of comfort zone. It’s a fun spring/summer color. I really do like the finished result, I did not put any top coat and it’s shiny. It really does look like a gel polish.

I hope you all loved this color! I’ll be sure to buy more shades from this line. 🙂

Until next time!

Columbus Circle Crimson Saturday

Hi lovlies!
Î hope you all are having a great weekend so far!

I know I was supposed to post a nail polish shade on Friday, but work kicked my butt this week. Haha (insert sad face here)

This nail polish is the NYC In a Minute nail polish in the shade 205 Columbus Circle Crimson. I found this awesome gem in Target in the clearance section. This is probably one of the best reds I have found!

The accent nail would be the Maybelline New York Color Show in the shade of Twilight Rays 240.

I hope you loves enjoyed this swatch!
Stay tuned for a few new skincare reviews I’m working on. 🙂

Twisted Tuesday

I always heard bad things about the Wet ‘n Wild nail polishes but it was on sale so I figured hey! let me buy and try it out. worst case scenerio if I don’t like it I could just return it or exchange it. I ended up getting the Wet ‘n Wild Megalast in Candy-licious 209C. I love it!

Its a bubble gum pink and is very vibrant. It doesn’t chip as bad as some of the other brands.

What I love most about this nail polish is the brush! The brush is called ManiCurve Pro Brush, its pretty big so that just one swipe could cover the whole nail. Who wouldn’t love that?!

Maybelline Color Tattoos Swatches and Review!

Everyone by now probably has heard about Maybelline’s 24 Hour Color Tattoo Eyeshadows and there’s a reason for it!

I probably have almost every one of them except a few. My favorite thing about them is that it really does stay 24 hours. You know everyone has those days that you’re just too tired to take off your makeup from a long night out. I’ve done that a few times (like everyone else) 😉 and when I woke up, I still had the eyeshadow on. It didn’t smear, budge or anything; it still looked like it was just put on. Oh the pigment!

Here’s the ones that I already own with a little description of the color

*15 Audacious Asphalt – sparkly dark grayish

*25 Bad to the Bronze –

*30 Pomegranate Punk

*35 Tough as Taupe

*40 Tenacious Teal

*45 Bold Gold

*50 Edgy Emerald

Then the Metal Collection:

*55 Inked in Pink

*65 Gold Rush

The Limited Edition Fall Colors 2012

*200 Ready Set Green

*300 Fuchsia Fever

*400 Test my Teal
