Cult Nails It’s a New Day Collection

Cult Nails It's A New Day

Cult Nails It’s a New Day is a new limited edition collection for spring 2014.

This collection includes three pastel cremes as well as a stamp plate that was designed with Marta from Chit Chat Nails. Maria and Marta created nine patterns they wanted to have on a stamping plate and made it reality.

The nail shades are all quite lovely and perfect for a spring collection. I am especially enamored with New Day.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow Powder

Tarte Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow Powder

Tarte Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow Powder is new for spring 2014 and I’ve got some swatches and the deets for you today.

These new brow powders come in a very sturdy and cute little compact with a mirror inside. The powders help fill in your brows in a rather natural looking way and the Amazonian clay keeps oils at bay. You could also use them on your hairline, if you have sparse areas of hair. They come in four shades currently which are: Blonde, Medium Brown, Rich Brown and Grey.

If you are looking for a brow brush to apply them with then their Frame Worker Double-Ended Bamboo Brow Powder Brush is a nice one. To use it all you do is dip the angled end into the powder and fill in your brows as you like. Make sure to tap off excess powder first! Once you have blended it in you can use the fuller side of the brush to blend more or you can use that part to fill in sparse areas in your hairline that might need it.

Orly Blush for Spring 2014

Orly Blush

Welcome to the wonderful world of Orly Blush for spring 2014.

This collection features six new soft, delicate shades including cremes, shimmers and a pearl. It’s kind of a nice change of pace from the usual bright shades or pastels we have seen a lot of for spring. The shimmery shades here are particularly gorgeous.

As far as formula things were pretty darn good. I only used two coats for most of the shades, and no other issues came up while applying them.

FingerPaints Pastel Rain for Spring 2014

FingerPaints Pastel Rain

FingerPaints Pastel Rain for spring 2014 is a new, limited edition collection now available at a local Sally’s Beauty Supply near you. This collection features three pastel creme shades and three matching glittery toppers. You could go for a tone-on-tone look or mix them up.

The cremes are on the thicker side, so you will only need two coats to cover. I did notice they tended to flood the brush so make sure you wipe off A LOT of the product before you apply it. The glitters all have different sizes, types and colors of glitter in them, all with iridescent pieces tossed in for extra sparkle. They applied easily with one coat and I didn’t really have any problems with them.

Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Pink Lipsticks

Top 10Pink Lipsticks

Hello there and happy Tuesday.

Today I’ve got my top ten favorite pink lipsticks for ya. Well my top ten favorite pink lipsticks for this minute anyway.

Boy did I have a hard time with this! I could easily have picked 20 pink lipsticks from MAC alone. Many of these are newer ones that are fresh in my mind, so that helped me a bit. While they might all look the same to your husband (I know they do with mine) they all are a bit different color-wise and finish-wise. ;)
