Milani Color Statement Lipstick Swatches

“Bellissimo! You know how some (lesser) lipsticks look one way in the store, and then completely different in your bathroom mirror? Color Statement is the antithesis of that. A super-luxe, grown-up girl lipstick, it delivers true instant colour in a single swipe. Laced with vitamins A and C to hydrate and nourish, this collection is all about options: Corals and Reds, Orchids and Plums, Nudes, and Pinks. Trust us, you’ll want an entire wardrobe.”

Blog Update

Hello everyone!

I’m sorry I have been inactive for so long.  I have finished school and returned to my full time job, so that takes up most of my days.

I was having computer issues because the screen on my computer was broken, but I just got a new computer!  Unfortunately I am still missing the charger for my new camera BUT my new-ish cell phone takes decent pictures and will work in the mean time.

Hopefully I can get some new stuff up soon, I have a lot to post!

Some examples -

  • Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Nude Crème
  • Wet n Wild Balm Stain in Rico Mauve
  • A bunch of NYX stuff
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance and La Crème lipstick
  • Essence stuff I got back in March
  • Tarte Amazon Butter Lipstick in Tulip
  • And a few more!

I’m still trying to get things organized between computers, so please bear with me.  Thank you for being so patient!!

NYX may be bought by L’Oreal

13 Jun

NYX had apparently put the company up for sale in March, with a potential deal with L’Oreal coming up soon.  While L’Oreal is not a cruelty free company, I will continue to support NYX if they continue to remain cruelty free.

If you’re a cruelty free blogger or cruelty free consumer who loves NYX, I strongly suggest that you shoot a short e-mail to them and urge the company to remain cruelty free under L’Oreal’s brand.

Essence Colour and Go Nail Polish “Hey, Nude” Swatches

6 Apr

~$2  at Ulta, Wallgreens

I got mine for 1,99 € at El Corte Inglés when I was in Spain.

This is one of the “Sparkle Sand” polishes.  I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the texture, but I actually really like it!  It certainly stays on my nails a lot longer than other polishes.
