wet n wild Hannah Pinktana 234c

I got this polish last summer. I just forgot that I had it. Whoops! I love this color. It is a sheer color. Its a purple/pink shade once its applied. I applied 3 coats to my nails to get the desired look that I want. It has tiny glitter in the polish. So it is not chunky at all. It is a thicker polish, so as you start putting more coats on the polish gets a but gooey like. I didn't see a huge problem with it, I just applied it fast.

It is a fast drying nail polish. I put it on 1 hr before I went to bed, and my polish didn't get any "sheet" marks on them LOL
I got the polish at wallgreens for $.99-1.99. I cant remember the exact price. But so far I like the polish.

DIY lipgloss/lipstick holder

So I have found myself thinking "do I have this color" for my lipstick/lipgloss.. or thinking " I don't have any lipgloss" lol
Well if I cant see something, I don't even remember having it. I swear my memory is going as I get older ;)

So I was looking on pintrest tonight for storage ideas, and I didn't find anything that I could use with what I already have. So out of no where I thought " hmm would a wine glass hold my lipgloss" So I went and grabbed a couple glasses, and sure enough they do hold my lipgloss! Sweet! I think they hold 6 lip gloss, and then for lipstick 4 tubes each. I like to be able to see the colors, so If I put more then a certain number in the glass I cant see the shade.

So here is what I did. I took some extra wine glasses I had. 2 tall and 2 shorter ones. Then I took a pink organza bag I had. I took the pink ribbon out. Then I just took the ribbon and tied bows on the stems of the wine glasses :)

So simple and so pretty.Of course I will need about 2 more glasses to finish the lip products up :) but I wanted to post a pic of what I did so far. enjoy!

Victoria secret triple drama mascara- review

I got this mascara for Christmas in my supermodel gift set. I have been wanting to try this out for awhile. The vs website doesn't show the brush or much info.
So here is what I can tell you.

The brush is kind of weird. It reminds me of a car wash lol you know the spinning things that wash your car. wow I'm such a dork, but that is what it reminds me of. The formula is a little wet when you first sweep it onto your lashes.
It didn't clump or smudge. Which was nice. It was easy to wash off as well. It didn't have a funky smell.

It really didn't lengthen or plump my lashes. It was just a nice dark black shade :)

Overall its an "ok" mascara. I wouldn't buy it again though I don't think. I think it sells for $13 on the website.

wet n wild sugar coat nailpolish

I picked up one of the new nail polish shades for the 2012 spring line. I believe more colors are being added, so there will be more coming in Feb I read on there fb page.
I bought "sugar coat" Its a nice pale pink. Very pretty shade. The formula went on smooth. The only thing I wasn't to sure on was the brush. I was much wider then any of the brushes I normally use. I use a lot of revlon polish and there brush isn't as wide as this wet n wild one. Overall I did like it. I did 3 coats, since I didn't want it to sheer.

revlon primer and blush?

I have seen these and want to grab them.. has anyone used them yet? thoughts?

E.O.T.D Sephora shadows

I saw this palette on sephoras website and it was sold out.. so i checked ebay and got it there for $14.00 with shipping.
It is sooo cute! but so so so tiny ! LOL like as small as a credit card. It has 3 flips. One has the eyeshadow, then one has the lip gloss, then 1 had the blush and bronzer.

The colors are great. Pigment is awesome!
Here is what I did with my eyes. From left to right. I used the 1st color on the top left row, as my eye brow highlight, then I used the 2nd color as my crease color, and this pretty light shimmer pink which is the 3rd color as my lid color.

The 2nd pic is what the shadows look like.. once again there super tiny but they have amazing color :)

Review maybelline dream bouncy blush

"Ugh" that's all I can say about this blush LOL! I love the color.. but once you attempt to apply the color if your skin has any type of tan it doesn't show up, unless you buy a dark shade.
I will start with my dislikes.

1) it is not easy to work with. It is suppose to be like a cream blush. Then finish  like a powder. Well when you go to apply it with your finger tips, you have to literally dig into the blush to get any blush to transfer. I had the hardest time just getting any product to transfer.

2) the color will take off your foundation. I put the blush over my foundation at 11am. By 6pm you could see exactly where I had applied the blush and it took off the foundation in that area. LOL. It looked so weird. I have no idea how that happened. Other then when you apply the blush you have to blend it into the skin, which I guess moves around the foundation.

gosh i could go on with how I didn't like it. I think it would be good for anyone that doesn't wear a foundation.. That way once the blush starts to wear off you don't need to apply more foundation then more blush..

I hope this helps.. i will say the color is pretty :) but that's it. It was a waste on my part for $6.99 at target . Hopefully it works for someone :)

Revlon Snow bunny

This is such a pretty winter color I think :) its a white/silver color. I did 2 coats to get good color. Its pretty sheer. It does have shimmer built in which makes it such a pretty color.
The color is holding up well with no chipping. Once again a revlon polish I love :)

Loreal Youth Code Youth Regenerating skincare cleanser

My review today is on the Loreal Youth Code foaming cleanser. I picked mine up at wallgreens a few days ago. It was on sale for $7.99. Which I think was an amazing deal. You get a ton of product!

There are no cons for me on this product. It has a nice clean scent. While I'M washing my face  I can feel the product working and cleansing my skin well. You can wet your face first then apply the cleanser or just pump the cleanser into your palm of your hand then apply. Either way works.

It says its a foam cleanser, but it does not dispense as foam. It suds up while its on your face.

My christmas Haul

Here are a few goodies I got for Christmas :) I had given Rob a list of some stuff I had wanted and he got all of it :)

 Above is the 4 for $20. 2 lip glosses and a cute round mirror and makeup wipes
 vs runway makeup, cute pink dog, and my vs charm bracelet

 swatches of the shimmer powder, the eyeshadow, and the lip gloss. the colors are super pretty. The lip gloss doesn't have a ton of pigment so it gives a light color to my lips.
 VS eyeshadow palette. On the website the colors and the actual palette were  different. I'm not happy with what is the actual product. I don't want to return it since it was a Christmas gift. So I'm going to keep it. Below is what I got..

 LOL this is the product that was on the website. Clearly what they actually shipped to people was a bit off! haha package on the inside is not pink and the colors are off.
 front package is what shows on the website.
 Cute tank Rob got me. Its so pretty on.
 Here is the tank in black to show more detail.

 Then rob got me some earrings and a bracelet from express :)

 Tyler got me a pretty pink stone necklace. my son always has good taste :)
 My mom got me a small travel brush set

 Once again my son has good taste.. and got me this pretty ring that has a deep purple stone.
