Ulta Baked Eyeshadow in "Skyline"

I purchased this eyeshadow when it was on clearance for two dollars because it got new packaging. I'm not too thrilled with it. It looks gorgeous in the pan, but it doesn't look that way on my eyes. I don't really like the silver because since it has blue veining, it doesn't have a consistent color. Also, that silver color doesn't seem to come off well on my eyes, as you can see from the picture. Overall, I don't think I would repurchase this product or use it all.

Price: $8.00
Bottom Line: Leave It!

China Glaze's "Blue Year's Eve"

Without Flash

With Flash
I bought this color thinking it was going to be a beautiful dark blue with a hint of purple. It looks completely different on my nails than I expected it to. It really reminds me of "Frostbite" from China Glaze. The only difference I see is that it is a brighter blue and it almost gives off a Chrome kind of finish, especially on my toes. This really isn't one of my favorite colors that China Glaze has came up with, especially since I thought it was going to look different.

My First Lush Haul!

 Yuzu and Cocoa Bubble Bar
 Eau Roma Water Toner

 Sweet Lips Lip Scrub

 Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser

BB Seaweed Face Mask

I've been seeing so many people talking about Lush on Youtube. So, I decided to find a location near me and go! Let me just tell you, I absolutely LOVE IT! Everyone was so nice and helpful there. Before I went, I looked online and watched videos and searched blogs so I kind of knew what I wanted to buy. One of the employees gave me a free facial which was so nice and that helped me decide on the cleanser and toner, which I didn't really want to try it until after that. I knew I wanted a face mask, lip scrub, and a bath item though. Everyone was really helpful and I described my skin and they told me what would work best. I used everything already last night and so far, so good! As always I will update you after I try these products! :)

P.S. if you haven't been to Lush I would GO!

China Glaze's "Sugar Plums"

I got this color for Christmas last year and I think this is actually the first time I've used it! It's a gorgeous deep wine color and it has a lot of fine glitter in it. The only downside to this color is that it chips a lot. I've had to touch up my nails almost everyday from the chipping. Other than that, it's a great color!

Product: China Glaze "Sugar Plums"
Price: $4.99
Bottom Line: Buy It!

e.l.f. Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in "Purple"

When I first tried this eyeliner, I didn't think it was going to be a wearable color, but it actually is! And I must say, I love it! From far away, it looks like black eyeliner because it's really dark. When you get up close though, this is the color it gives off. I actually think this pen lasts longer than the black waterproof eyeliner pen from e.l.f. So, if you're looking for a purple eyeliner or you just love e.l.f.'s pen in black, I would definitely try this color out!

e.l.f. Individual Lash Kit

I applied three of these individual lashes on the outside of my lid. I didn't use the glue it came with though because it was dried out so I just used lash glue I already had on hand. These were easy for me to apply and they look extremely natural! As you can see from the pictures, it doesn't even look like I have false lashes on. Also, these make a BIG difference! Even if you cannot see it in the pictures. Another thing I like about these is that if one falls off, you are not going to be able to visibly notice it which is a lot better than a full strip of lashes.

China Glaze's "Westside Warrior"

With Flash

I bought this polish when the "Metro" collection first came out. This was the color I really grabbed for because I really haven't seen another color like it. This is my first time using it and I love it! It's a great color for fall and it is actually really neutral. It only took me two coats to get a nice opaque color. If you're looking for this color, I know that Sally's has the Metro collection marked down to $1.99 right now!

China Glaze's "Black Diamond"

I bought China Glaze's "Black Diamond" a while ago but I have never really painted my nails with it. I didn't do very well painting it either because I was getting frustrated. This was two coats and it still didn't cover completely.I know that it is a dark color, but China Glaze is usually really good with making their polishes only need two coats or less. So, with that being said I'm probably only going to be using this color as an accent or things like that not as a full manicure color.

Sally's Haul

I went to Sally's recently, to of course look at China Glaze. ;) And this is what I ended up picking up!
I bought two Sally's Girl baked Eyeshadows. (One dark gray and one silver)
The China Glaze Colors I bought were:
-Tinsel Town
-Snow Globe
-Blue Year's Eve

Snow Globe and Blue Year's Eve were in the little two pack. That was actually a great deal because I got both polishes for 6.99! I also got Skyscraper for 1.99 because the Metro Collection was on clearance! So, if you're near a Sally's I would go check it out.

China Glaze's "Sea Spray"

Without Flash
Sea Spray is a gorgeous light blue color with a hint of gray. I tried buying this color when the collection first came out, but I couldn't find it at Ulta. I actually found it at Sally's! My Sally's got a bunch of new China Glaze colors and a new display so they had this color and I bought it immediately! I'm so glad I did. It kind of reminds me of Pelican Gray, except it has more of a blue tone in it. It goes on very smooth and it only took two coats to get complete coverage.
