I’ve been saving this box of Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in “Pink-a-dot” for almost a year now. This design was one of five limited edition nail strips for Spring 2012, but you can still find them on Amazon! I actually wrote about buying these nail strips last April, and I considered applying them pretty much every time I did my nails since then. I guess I was saving these cute pink polka dots to wear for Valentine’s Day all along.
Wantable.co is a new makeup experience that allows you to create a customized box filled with full-sized products selected by pro makeup artists. What makes Wantable different from similar companies like Birchbox is that they give you the ability to select the type of makeup you want, you receive full-size products instead of samples, and you’re not required to subscribe. Wantable asked me to try out a box and share my experience with you all! Check out what’s inside my box!
I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Now that the holidays are over, I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. I used Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in “470 Lust-rous” to give myself both a manicure and pedicure for New Year’s Eve (click here to see a step-by-step tutorial). I take my time applying these Sally Hansen nail strips (meaning I don’t skip any of the prep steps), so I get a good amount of wear time with these (about 2 weeks). Here’s to a sparkly 2013!
Makeup Geek contacted me asking if I would like to try out their new eye shadows from their own line that they recently launched. Of course I said yes — nerds and geeks unite! I got to pick 12 eye shadows, and I swatched them all here. These come in magnetic refill pans similar to MAC Pro Palette Refill Pans, but these come with more product. Overall, I’m very impressed, especially with the matte black! Find out more about these high quality eye shadows at a drugstore price!
Too Faced Better Than False Lashes isn’t your traditional mascara — it’s a lash extension system that claims to be like brushing on false lashes. Combining mascara and fiber is not new — there are mascaras out there that already have nylon fibers built in, so what makes this Too Faced product different is that the nylon fibers are separate from the mascara giving you control of how much you want to apply. Check out my step-by-step pictures, and see if this will work for you!
