Hello Kitty by OPI Collection

Hello Kitty by OPI

As you probably know by now, Hello Kitty by OPI has hit shelves and I have swatches and my thoughts about the collection now.

This collection features twelve new limited-edition shades, all inspired by Hello Kitty and her pals. Fun fact: there are over 50,000 Hello Kitty branded items in over 130 countries and 15,000 retail locations. Wow! I’m not really a huge fan anymore, but still have a Hello Kitty sewing kit from when I was a kid. :)

A Quick Thank You


Happy hump day!

I just wanted to write a quick thank you to all those who participated in my recent survey. I still have a lot to ponder about where I am taking this blog, but you guys had some excellent ideas and comments!

Interestingly, many of you want to see more nail polish swatches and comparisons, and especially more drugstore nail polish/makeup swatches. It was rather split down the middle who wants to see what. Many only come for nail polish posts, whereas others only come to see makeup swatches. I think for now I am going to be continuing the makeup posts, mainly for the brands you and I love the most. I think going forward I am going to be spending less time focusing on “Instagram” popular brands because they don’t always appeal to many people and I don’t think the interest is that high in those types of posts.

theBalm Batter Up Long Wearing Eyeshadow Stick

theBalm Batter Up Long Wearing Eyeshadow Stick

Happy Wednesday party people, how are ya? I’m chugging along this week, highly caffeinated and with a little “extra” crazy on the side. 😀

Today I’ve got some of the new theBalm Batter Up Long Wearing Eyeshadow Stick shades for you! These new shadow sticks come in eight shades and have a long wear, cream formula. They twist-up, so no need to sharpen. They are very nicely pigmented, super smooth and quite blendable. Of course you can also use them as a smudged out liner, not just an eye shadow.
