Review: Blend & Boost Skincare

Leave a Comment

When science and beauty meet, I'm basically in love and want to know everything. So when I got the opportunity to learn about Blend & Boost a few months ago, I jumped on the opportunity. 

Blend & Boost began with a pharmaceutical company establishing a method to create personalized skincare. Adding the touch of an apothecary vibe, Blend & Boost grew into a company that creates customized skincare for all skin types.

Swatched: Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Leave a Comment

A couple of weeks ago, Too Faced answered many beauty lovers prayers and released the Sweet Peach palette once more. But this time, it's permanent and accompanied by a highlighting palette, blush, and glosses.

After hearing such rave reviews of the eyeshadow palette when it was released earlier in 2016, I knew I had to have one in my collection as well. I've just recently gotten my hands on it and already used it twice. I can easily say that this is a great palette and a nice twist on a neutral palette with the peach shades sprinkled in.

Now I'm hoping to have some looks using this palette in the next week or so, but no promises. I do have swatches of the entire palette though!

Plus remember that I am running a giveaway right now where I am giving away a Sweet Peach palette (plus a ton of other things). You can enter that contest by checking out this post.

Mani Monday: Golden Globes Inspired

Golden Globes Red Carpet Inspired Nail Art Thandie Newton 2017 Monse Glitter Minimalist Nail Design

Hooray! Award season is back! And you know that means...tons of Mani Monday inspiration. There were some gorgeous gowns on the red carpet this year at the Golden Globes but a particular one stood out from the crowd.

Thandie Newton looked absolutely flawless in a minimalistic but showstopping off-the-shoulder dress by Monse. It featured a stunning bright copper/orange sequin detail at the bottom of the dress.

This dress is a perfect source of inspiration for a nail art design because of it's minimalistic design and punch of colour and shine.

New In: OPI Breakfast at Tiffany's Holiday 2016 Collection

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany's Holiday 2016 Collection Swatch Review

Now I can easily admit that I get excited for the latest nail polish collection release. But this one was on a whole other level. For this holiday season, OPI released their Breakfast at Tiffany's collection which features 18 polishes, 12 of the regular formula and 6 of the Infinite Shine formula. There is only one repeated shade between the two different formulas—the Tiffany's blue shade, I Believe in Manicures.

I have swatched the entire collection below for you. All swatches are 2 coats unless otherwise noted. I apologized for the stained cuticles in some swatches. There were just so many reds and deeper shades and I did all of these swatches within a 24 hour period.
