Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks in Matte Frappacino and Matte Dare.....

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Hey Everyone!!

I picked up a couple of the new Jordana Modern Matte lipsticks at Walgreens a couple of weeks ago. As part of my beauty resolution this year( I only have one), I only bought to two shades, Matte Frappacino and Matte Dare. I'm resolving to make better beauty buys and not buying an entire collection, just buying shades and products that speak to me. Hopefully, I can save some money and space in my collection.




Matte Dare and Matte Frappacino

The two shades that I picked I absolutely love. The lipsticks' consistency swipes on full coverage within 1 to 2 swipes but the formula is kind of skippy, it doesn't go on smooth, not even on moisturized lips. That's my only complaint, not  having a smooth application.  I don't think I'll be picking up anymore shades, I've seen them at two other Walgreens and wasn't interested in the other colors.

Have you tried the new Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks? What are your favorite colors? Let me know in the comments!



NYX Wicked Lippie in Immortal.....

Hey Everyone!!!

When I spotted this swatch-fest of comparisons/possible dupes of LE MAC Gunner to other lipsticks, I was immediately intrigued by NYX Betrayal and Immortal from the Wicked Lippie collection. I actually found Immortal but not Betrayal at the nearest Ulta.






 Immortal is so blue in the picture but I posted a picture of me with it on IG and one of Sorors said it looked purple.
 Blue-purple....ish??? Eh, I'm not a blue lipstick fan. That pushes my comfort zone. I actually have a beauty comfort zone. LOL

What do you think? Do you own any of the NYX Wicked Lippies???





Pin Of The Week! DIY Zoya Remove+......



Hey Everyone!!!

Last week I was trolling the #NailGlossip on Twitter and found out that there is a DIY/dupe of my favorite nail polish remover, Zoya Remove+. I love Remove+ because it takes off all your polish and leaves you nails moisturized without any film or stickyness. But, it's wayyy over my coins, it's not cheap by any means, for polish remover. Last time I actually bought it was after I receive an income tax refund. LOL I bought the bottle in the picture below and used it UP. Now I used the bottle with some regular acetone in it.




The gals on the #nailglossip hashtag stated the recipe for Remove+ but I went over to Pinterest and found several pins on it.


As soon as I buy some glycerin, I'm making some! Here is the PIN for the DIY Zoya Remove+ and come over and follow me on Pinterest HERE!!



A Fresh Coat Of Polish: Pure Ice Flirt Alert.....

Hey Everyone!!

I had this odd craving for the perfect pink polish. I wanted a pink polish that was pretty on the hands and pretty on the toes! I just knew, I was going have to spend some money, like buy an OPI polish or something to get the perfect shade. In my opinion, even though there are great mass market/drugstore polishes, the prestige end polish just doesn't fail when looking for a specific color polish. 

Welp, I got proved wrong last week.

I found this Pure Ice polish in Flirt Alert. I bought it on a whim, thinking it was just ok.





Flirt Alert is two coats of creamy opaqueness!!! And this photo was taken on Monday, after applying on a busying Friday. I got tip wear, I NEVER have tip wear, only chips. And as of this Tuesday, Flirt Alert is still going strong. I'm stunned, I have two other Pure Ice polishes and they don't hold up like this. What did I do different? I don't know!! I feel like I have on a gel polish application.


Do you have any favorite pink polishes? Let me know in the comments!!




DIY Kate Spade Glitter Earrings........

Monday, January 19, 2015

Hey Everyone,

I was trolling Instagram on Friday night and came across a post from someone I follow about DIY Kate Spade glitter earrings. I was like "The glitter earrings I've pinned about a million times on Pinterest are an easy DIY?!?!?"


The Earrings. They retail $38 a pair and are sold out.

I was in Walmart the NEXT DAY to buy supplies.


Yep....Did that!! Here's how....
You will need:

A clear rhinestone stud pair of earrings. I chose the ones sold at Walmart because those are the ones most of the DIYs on IG and Pinterest are using because they are around the same size as the Kate Spade ones. But you can use any rhinestone stud earrings you like.

Glitter polish. I have a TON of glitter polish.

Clear Fast Dry Nail Polish.
Basically you apply the polish to your liking. So if you want the earrings completely opaque with glitter, you will do a couple of layers.

 Allow the layers to dry a bit before applying another layer. That method allows the glitter to adhere. 

When you have the coats to your liking, apply a clear of coat of fast dry polish all over the earring, including the metal parts, so that it will not tarnish.

I did my earrings at night, so I allowed it to dry overnight and they were perfect for next day wear!


Here are some gold ones I made. I'm OBSESSED! I need to make some silver glitter ones next!!
