Jindie Nails Polo

Jindie Nails Polo and Purple University

Jindie Nails Polo (pictured here next to Purple University) is a shade that is sure to tempt the holographic lover as well as the blurple lover.

Polo is a medium blurple with deep blue and violet flecks. It also has linear holographic shimmer. Something about it reminds me of a lighter version of blueberries.

The formula was excellent, it covered beautifully with no issues in three thin coats. I didn’t swatch the other one Purple University yet though.

Nicole by OPI 3-in-1, Quick Dry Top Coat and Matte Top Coat Review

Nicole by OPI Nail Treatments

Recently I’ve been playing around with three new-ish base/top coats from Nicole by OPI.

First we have 3-in-1, which is a base coat, top coat and strengthener all in one. Next we have their Quick Dry Top Coat. Finally there is the Matte Top Coat.

For me, most base coats don’t seem to make much of a difference. Granted, there are some that are horrible that I’ve tried, but speaking generally, they all seem to be about the same. Matte Top Coats are great but again, I haven’t noticed a huge difference between many of the ones I have tried. But Top Coats, now THAT is where the biggest differences lie for me!

Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour

Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour

New for 2014 and coming soon to a drugstore near you is Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizer Lip Colour.

These fat lip stains are super smooth and moisturizing. They contain acai palm oil, release continuous moisture, have a cooling sensation (not stinging) and come in six shades.

What I love about these is that they feel so smooth and nice on my lips. They are really very slick, and feel like a nice lip balm. They say they have a minty cooling feel to them. I don’t feel any mint really, but they do feel slightly cooling on my lips. They have shine to them and the more intense colors especially do leave behind a lip stain, though it’s uneven looking. Also they twist up from the bottom, so no sharpening required.

Sorry I don’t have actual swatches on my lips this time. My lips are very chapped at the moment and a pretty picture they would not make.

Beauty Confession

Beauty Confession

Happy Friday to you all!

I have a confession of sorts today. So here goes.

I don’t think I am good at applying eye makeup, which is part of the reason why you rarely see “selfies” of me on my blog.

There I said it.

That’s the cold hard truth. I always kind of thought I was somewhat decent at eye makeup until I got into this business. Then I started watching some amazing YouTube artists and bloggers and started feeling how completely average my skills are. I don’t think I’m horrible per se, but my skills are at the very basic level. Also you always think you look decent and then you take a photo with an amazing camera and realize, holy hell that is so un-blended it’s not even funny!

I also started becoming hyper-aware of different eye shapes and realized that 95% of the people I followed and loved didn’t have my eye shape or eyelids, which makes it nearly impossible to get the same kind of looks they always show. That bummed me out so I kind of stopped even trying. To be honest, I only wear makeup about 1-2 days a week now.
