My favorites right now

I always have had difficulties finding a white polish that did not take too many layers to fully cover my nail without a sheer look to it. I grabbed this NYC white nail polish on my last trip to good ole' Walmart and it now has become a big time favorite! The NYC #208B 'Little Italy' shade could easily take one coat, but I do two for good measure. It dries super fast, and best of all is CHEAP! I think it was less than a dollar for the bottle. 

I've also fell in love with these Art deco nail art polishes! I found them at the local dollar store! They're really easy to use, and it's fun to paint little pictures or designs on my nails or my little girl's nails.Thus far, I have found black, white, silver, pink, purple, orange and yellow. It takes some getting used to, but for $1.00, it's a fun polish to try.

So most people have probably already tried this lotion, but I just did recently and love it! I have used many, many different types of self tanners. I hate being pale, and don't always have a tanning membership, so I make do with tanners as I can. Most sunless tanning lotions have an awful smell to them. While putting this lotion on, it smells great, but unfortunately it does have a little bit of the tanner smell to it when I wake up the next day. I guess it is to be expected. I am able to use this lotion once and it will last for several days! I love that, because I don't always remember to use the lotion or I don't always have the time for it as I would like. I think this is 7-8$ a bottle, and it is a smaller bottle than some of the other lotions out there, but I'd definitely recommend you try it if like me, you haven't yet.

Last but not least is this little teasing comb I picked up on my last trip to Sally Beauty Supply. (I love that store!) I had a hard time getting a clear picture of the comb, (I need a new camera!) but it has three rows of teeth and is so easy to use. It helps give you that little bit of volume from teasing when your hair is too blah. :)

It's by Tool Structure. It was less than $2.00 if I remember right.

That's all for now- I have some other favorites I plan to share soon!!

Peachy lipstick look

Here is look I did recently using another of the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks. 

This lipstick was Revlon's #613 'Just enough buff'. I love, love, love this shade. It's kind of a peachy nude shade. Like the other Revlon lipstick I posted about previously, this lipstick goes on very creamy with great coverage. It has a great color payoff and is not sheer like some nude or light shades tend to be.

I'd rate it the same as I did the #660-

You should definitely pick up some of these lipsticks from the Super Lustrous line. If I remember correctly, they run between 5-6$ a stick, so that's not too bad. :)   

Magenta lipstick look

Ahh! It has been way too long since my last post! I haven't been inspired makeup wise in a while, and haven't had as much time to do blogging or videos as I would have liked. Hopefully I can get back on track and posting some new looks! I have a few recent looks I wanted to share and another post or two hopefully to come after this, so hang in there with me!! :)

On to the look! I have a couple looks I have done recently that I wanted to share; here is the first one...

After seeing Rihanna wearing magenta lipstick and several of the bloggers I follow doing looks with the pretty shade, I picked up some myself! I normally don't venture far from the nude shades of lipstick, but this color was too beautiful to pass up!

Mine is not quite I used the Revlon #660 Berry Haute from their Super Lustrous Lipstick line. I absolutely love their super lustrous lispsticks. They are very creamy and leave my lips feeling so soft! I really have no complaints about the lipstick other than a small complaint about the packaging. Some of the Revlon lipsticks have a clear window in the very top of the lid so that you can easily see the shade before opening it. Really who cares, it only takes me two seconds to check the shade when I'm riffling through my makeup bag, but that'd be my only complaint. :)
