Color Club Raspberry Rush

Happy Monday loves. Hope you all have a great week!

I picked up this nail polish set at the International Salon and Spa Expo in Long Beach a few weeks agoimageThe awesome perk about this set is that it’s all scented polish!

Raspberry Rush is a hot dark pink shade that’s supposed to smell like raspberries but to me it’s more of a light berry with a hint of bubble gum. Weird as it sounds, it actually reminds me of a berry fruity hookah flavor. I can’t help but keeping on smelling my nails !

 

ISSE 2015 Sample Haul

Hi loves!

A few weeks ago, I went to the International Salon and Spa Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center. It’s a 3 day event where licensed makeup artists, cosmotologists, estheticians and pretty much any one in the personal wellness industry. Estheticians usually aim to go on Sunday and Monday because there’s actually more skincare booths and classes. For the past 2 years now, I’ve been going to the Saturday show mainly because it’s the cheapest day. (Bad I know!)

I went for the first time last year and was there about 3 hours in advance. (You can blame it on misreading the schedule and being sick). I pretty much walked in there and felt so overwhelmed! Just imagine a convention center filled with every type of beauty product booth! Anyways, this year I was prepared and being more social and talkative, I scored so much samples!

Rimmel London Salon 711 Punk Rock

Happy New Years love!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a great New Years! Forgive me for being so MIA, I had too many things going on but that’s all about to change! I have some exciting news that I’ll post soon (possibly next week) and I’m so excited for it. Anyone have any good resolutions? Me for one, I plan to post more than last year , at least 3 times a week.

I haven’t done a Mani Monday in forever so from now on Monday’s posts shall be about nails. 🙂

Today I’m wearing Rimmel London Salon Pro with Lycra in the shade 711 punk rock. Sadly, I believe this shade is discontinued, hence the 75% off at CVS. It’s a long lasting cream purple that has a gel like finish.

The only con about the packaging is the brush itself. It’s really small compared to other nail brushes. I feel like the top is bigger than the applicator itself. Otherwise, I do love the color and it indeed is a long wearing polish.

*On my index finger, I’m wearing Sinful Color 922 Frenzy. It’s a nice glittery top coat. 🙂

And can we mention the background?! That is actually my front yard, it rained yesterday and those are all leaves on the ground. It’s like fall in the middle of winter when I see this background.

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? 🙂

 

Sinful Colors 962 Ocean Side

Hi Loves!
I hope you’re all having a great week!
For Friday Mani this week, I’m wearing the Sinful Colors nail polish in the shade 962 Ocean Side. It’s a pretty dark teal cream blue and I honestly enjoy the Sinful Colors line. For the most part, they don’t chip as easily. What do you guys think? 🙂

Revlon 260 Bold Sangria

Hi Lovelies!

I hope you all are doing great! This week I wanted to change up my nail polish since lately I’ve been doing the Covergirl Hunger Games edition of Mani Fridays.

I’m wearing Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in 260 Bold Sangria. It’s a medium deep purple cream shade. I definitely love it! With one coat, its very light but I did use a second coat which made it more dark. However there is still some patches where the color isn’t concentrated but its OK! I could easily use that nail as an accent nail and use a glitter coat on top if I wanted to.

I got this for a real good deal at CVS just this past week actually. After I scanned my CVS ExtraCare card at the magic red machine, I received a $3 off any Revlon Cosmetics and I also had a manufacture coupon as well that was $1 off. Not to mention, this specific color was 50% off with a pink sticker. I basically just paid the tax! 😀

P.S.!! If you do want to snag a few makeup products on clearance at CVS, always look for the pink, green or blue sticker that mentions it’s either 25%, 50% or 75% off. You will simply be amazed!
