Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer

I finally had time to sit down yesterday and swatch all 36 of the new Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer shades. Whew, that was quite the feat!

This new line features 36 colors and one new Quick Dry Top Coat. These have a great, saturated formula and most were just two coats for complete coverage. The colors range from every day nudes to super rich vampy shades. There are many finishes as well including cream, shimmer, glitter, frost and metallic.

The cost is just $3.99 per shade, and you can find them on Milani’s site as well as CVS stores nationwide.

Urban Decay False Lashes: Perversion and Partial

Urban Decay False Lashes

Urban Decay False Lashes are new and they come in two types: Perversion False Lashes for maximum drama and zero guilt, or the fast, easy and sexy Partial False Lashes.

Both lash types come in boxes with a clear plastic tray for easy display. They are reusable and come with a lash adhesive (on the back of the box) which goes on iridescent but dries totally clear. It’s a latex-free adhesive, so no worries for those who have a latex allergy. The Partial Lashes also show you before and after photos on the back of the box.

Purple Hair!

Purple hair 7-31-14

I have purple hair, yes indeed!

I am currently in the process of growing out my pixie and it’s a daily struggle. I fight the urge to cut it super short constantly. But you see, I haven’t had hair past my shoulders in 20 years, so I am really curious to see how long I can get it, and also what it will look like now.

In order for me to NOT cut it again I needed to do something interesting. Awhile back I was thinking about doing a pale pastel pink but then I decided nah, I want lavender!

LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Goddess (You Need This Color)

LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick Goddess

I am only going to say this once. LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Goddess is a shade YOU NEED!

I’ve reviewed a few of these lipsticks here and here, but this one, THIS ONE is my favorite by far. This shade wasn’t even on my radar until I was watching a video from Young Wild and Polished and she showed it. I nearly fell over I loved it so much. It is the absolute perfect shade of mauve.

I had actually been on the hunt for this one for awhile because every time I made it to an Ulta, they were sold out of this one. So it must be one of the more popular shades!
