China Glaze's "China Rouge"

I can't remember when I bought this polish, but this is the first time I've used it. It's a gorgeous bright red color and I love it! It was perfect for Christmas time and it actually stayed on for a whole week! I had tiny chips but it was nothing major especially since I didn't use a  top coat. So, if you are looking for a gorgeous red, I would recommend this!

Product: China Glaze's "China Rouge"
Price: $4.99
Bottom Line: Buy It!

Santa's Suit Christmas Nails

This is a very simple nail art design and it only takes a few lines to make "Santa's Suit!" I began with the white line down the middle and the bottom of the nail. Next, I added a black line in the center of the nail. After that, I applied a silver to make box for the belt buckle. Finally, I applied glitter to my other nails and you are done! 

The products I used were: 
China Glaze's "China Rouge"

China Glaze's "Snow Globe"

China Glaze's "Fairy Dust"

L.A. Colors Art Deco "White"

L.A. Colors Art Deco "Black"

L.A. Colors Art Deco "Silver"

e.l.f. Liquid Liner in "Midnight"

This eyeliner came in a back of three other liners. I was thinking it was going to be a navy blue color, but it just looks black to me. This liner stays on very well and it applies easy too. The one thing that I noticed though is that the applicator is a lot longer in the new liquid liners than the old ones. This makes it a little harder to apply, but it is still pretty easy. So, I'd say if you are looking for a navy liner like I was, I wouldn't buy this one in midnight. Just because it looks exactly like black!

Product: e.l.f. Liquid Liner in "Midnight"
Price: $1.00
Bottom Line: Leave It! (Because it looks like black)

Dollar Tree False Eyelashes

I was willing to give these eyelashes that I found at the Dollar Tree a try. From the looks of them, they looked like a really good design. Let me just tell you, these were SO hard to apply! The band is so stiff and not flexible at all. I tried playing with it to get it looser, but that didn't help. I tried to put them on anyways. I could not get them to fit the shape of my eye since the band is so stiff. That's why it looks stupid in the second picture of my eye because I could not get them situated right before the glue dried. Looking head on, the lashes look amazing. But, when you close your eyes they look horrible. I am not going to try this brand of lashes again! Unless they come without a band.

Product: Dollar Tree False Eyelashes
Price: $1.00
Bottom Line: Leave It!

e.l.f. Studio Contour Brush

I bought this at my local K-Mart. I've seen this brush every time I was going to order from e.l.f., but for some reason I never decided to buy it. I'm glad I finally picked it up! This brush is perfect for contouring and it makes a big difference. It has a small surface, which helps you get right into your crease. After that, you just need a fluffy brush to blend it out. I've washed this brush a few times and it has not shed at all. Overall, this is a great brush and I would try it!

Product: e.l.f. Studio Contour Brush
Price: $3.00
Bottom Line: Buy It!

China Glaze's "Avalanche"

Avalanche is one of my favorite colors from China Glaze! I've had this color for a long time and it is more than half empty. When I run out of this color, I will be buying another one for sure! This color is gray/ silver when you are in shade, but in the bright light it turns a purple color. I would try this color for sure! Not only is this a gorgeous color, but it wears very nicely.

Product: China Glaze's "Avalanche"
Price: $4.99
Bottom Line: Buy It!
