Newest beauty mail :)

With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching,
I've made some online purchases for future makeup looks that came in recently :)

Here are my newest pigments from SYN Cosmetics!

I <3 them :)


* SEMI-REVIEW * Covergirl's Colorlicious Lip Lava 'Mauva Lava'

Happy Sunday Sunday, everyone!
This particular product caught my eye in Walgreens the other day.
I've only ever tried to the Outlast lipstick from Covergirl, and it's been okay,
so I figured I'd branch out just a bit and try this gloss.
The color looked gorg,
so I was pretty excited.

The Product

Here's the product on Covergirl's website:

I mean, that color looks seductive and awesome, right?!

Here it is on:


Though it does "saturate" my lips with color as it claims,
the consistency of this gloss SUCKS.
I've tried other glosses with the same feel,
and I hate it.
It's sticky and thick.
No way I could kiss anyone or anything with this bad boy on without totally grossing them out and making a mess :/

It's a shame, really,
because I was very impressed with the color quality.
If you don't plan on kissing anyone or being in wind with hair longer than your temples-
you might be fine ://

This stuff isn't really expensive, but I still wouldn't waste the money.
There are other loses out there that give you color saturation and shine
without feeling like you've got thick glue or paste on your lips.
This would be a last resort for me.



From the Vault- 'Pelican Grey' & 'Snowglobe'

Well even though it's in the freaking 60's in January here in TN,
I'm going to at least have some snow of my nails!

Today's post are definitely form the vault.
They're two polishes from at least a couple years ago:
one from China Glaze & one from Kawaii Nail Lacquer :)

Here's the combo:

This is 2 coats of 'Pelican Grey' and 2 coats of 'Snowglobe' :)
Festive and sparkly!


Out of This World look

So over the past few years
I've become increasingly obsessed with galaxy anything- shoes, scarves, prints, phone cases, swim suits- you name it.
I'm a hippy at heart, I guess ;)

I decided to create a look based off of one 
of the many gorgeous photos of this awe inspiring 'place' :)

And here's the look:

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
UD's 'Bobby Dazzle'- inner corners
BFTE's 'Raspberry' &, Sleek 'Pout', Victorian Disco 'AK-47'- (pink part),
Urban Decay 'Flash' & SYN Cosmetics' 'Pandora' (purple part)- lid
Sugarpill's 'Afterparty & SYN Cosmetics' 'Famous'- crease
SYN Cosmetics' 'Bust'- highlight
Victorian Disco's 'Stun Grenade' silver glitter
L'Oreal Butterfly Intenza mascara

What are yawls thoughts?
I had a great time creating this look.
The colors were exactly what I wanted,
and then once I put that VD glitter on-
I loved it :P


FrOzEn !!

So my daughter, like every other person in the entire world,
is obsessed with Frozen.
When I saw a nail polish bearing the same name-
I knew I had to get it.

Here's 2 coats of Candy Lacquer's 'Frozen' over 1 coat of Zoya's 'Robyn' :)

'Frozen' is a clear base that's jam packed with silver and light blue glitter & holo glitter.
It's GORG. Just look how it sparkles in the sunlight!
It's best over a base coat of some solid color, so the glitter can really look dense.
My daughter is in love with this polish now,
and I am, too!

I've used several Candy Lacquer polishes,
and they've been nothing but great.

What do you guys think?


Glistening Snowcicles ;P

Hello, all!
It has been freezing cold and rainy here.
I can only hope that means snow (and yikes, ice!) and a subsequent snow day tomorrow!
We shall see.
In the meantime, I have a gorgeous holo, wintery mani for you today.

Here's 1 coat of China Glaze's 'Icicle' and 2 coats of CG's 'Glistening Snow'.

This combo was just mesmerizing to me.
Nothing fancy, but certainly gorgeous! :)



'Ello, everyone!
I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year's eve :)

I have a minty, winter-y look for today.
It's a slightyl different combo than I've done before,
but I really like it.

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
UD's 'Vanilla'- inner corners
SYN Cosmetics' 'Faded'- lids
UD's 'Bondage' & 'Defy'- crease
UD's 'Sonic'- highlight
Maybelline Stiletto eyeliner
L'Oreal Butterfly Intenza mascara
