Mani Monday: Seche Ambitious

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all are recovering the Daylight Savings change. I feel like a zombie at the moment! Am I the only one who feels that way? lol

I’m back after a little hiatus with a new Mani Monday special! Since we are getting into the fall season, I opted for a dark metallic cobalt blue from Seche Premier Colour sold at Sally Beauty. I got it for under $2 in the clearance bin! FYI: Always look for the clearance items at Sally Beauty, you’d be surprised!

This is called Ambitious and I just love the way the blue stands out, it’s a great color for fall!

What do you guys think?!

CVS NYX Weekly Shopping Deal

Happy Wednesday loves!

Hope you’re all doing well, we’re halfway till the weekend.

I’m back again with a CVS Beauty haul and a deal!

If you buy $15 worth of NYX cosmetics you’ll get $5 back in Extra Care Rewards.

You can easily buy 3 items for $5 and there you go, you’ll get $5!

I got 2 retractable eyeliners and 1 eyeshadow base.

For the eyeliners, I bought Black and Aqua Green and I just love the green, especially as a waterline color.

As for the eyeshadow base, it’s actually a smokey eye base!

It’s actually black, instead of the usual nude and the white shade.

 

Hope you all have fun drugstore shopping! 😀

Essie Decadent Diva

Happy Tuesday loves!

How did everyone’s weekend go?! I finally went and got my nails done! So I figured I would post the aftermath of it.

I probably wouldn’t get another manicure again though unless it was a gel or a pedicure.

I choose Essie Decadent Diva and I love it! After the first coats, I thought what the heck was I thinking?! But after 2 more coats, it looked like the bottle. It’s a dark brown with a hint of red.

What do you guys think?!

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette

Happy Monday loves!

I’m changing things up this week since I’ve still got my gel nails on! This has been an over due eye shadow palette review that I completely forgot about! Back in Christmas season, CVS had a Wet n Wild palette kit which included an eye shadow palette, an eye primer, and an eyeliner. This has been in my makeup storage for quite some time and forgot about it. The only reason I remembered it was because I was wearing a green top and wanted to go for a green look, and I found the palette hiding. This palette has 6 shades, and is called Comfort Zone.

There’s 2 sets of shadow shades: a rosey taupe set and an emerald green set.

The Rosey Taupe Set:

 

  1. A light golden shimmery brow bone color. I use this for the brow bone and also sometimes in the inner corner for a pop of color!
  2. A rosey eyelid shade: This usually my go to eyelid color when I want a rosey pink look. I love how its light and actually very buildable.
  3. A medium bronze crease shade: I wish the picture would do the color justice! It’s a medium bronze with  metallic shimmer. I sometimes use this as an eyelid shade for the days I want a basic bronze look
  4. A darker brown definer shade: This is probably one of the darkest shade in this palette! It has a burgandy reddish glitter to it. I love using this as an eyeliner for those days I don’t want to use a gel or liquid liner.

The Emerald shades:

I’ve read that people who use an emerald shade for brown eyes makes the eyes pop. So I love this part of the palette!

  • A. a bronze browbone: Again I use this for mostly the inner eye. It’s such a pretty bronze taupe shimmer.
  • B. a spring green eyelid: This is actually my favorite color from the whole palette. It’s a pretty shimmery green that is buildable. It looks really pretty on top of the Revlon ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow in Pistachio.
  • C. a grayish brown with a shimmery top crease. It’s a bit harder to blend in compared to the others.
  • D. a red brown with a blue-teal duochrome and frosty top. I love this is shade as well just because it’s so different!

There you have it loves! My very first Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette Review. What do you guys think?!

 

Essie Repstyle

Happy Monday loves!

Hope all had a great weekend! It’s already Monday, is it just me or is did the weekend just fly by?!

I’m back again with an Essie magnetic polish minus the magnetic. This one is called Repstyle which is a metallic light gold. I think I like it even more without the magnetic top.

I actually did find this at the 99 Cent Only store without the magnetic top, but hey I think it was still worth it! You’d be surprised at what you can find at these dollar stores. One of these days, I’m bound to find the complete Essie magnetic polish.

Have you found any great bargain buys at the dollar store? I would love to know!

Essie Metallic Green (Crocadilly) Nails

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I found this Essie nail polish at the 99 cent Only Store and only paid $1! Only problem with this color is that I couldn’t find the name for this polish hence the vague title. I did a little research online and I believe it’s a limited edition of magnetic Essie.

It’s a pretty army green with a slight metallic color and it only took 2 layers for this look! Even if I had the magnetic top, I still wouldn’t use it.

What do you guys think?!
