Hey beauty lovers! So I thought it would be fun to show you all the nail color trends I’ve been loving for the month June. These colors have been getting me through June gloom.. But now that it’s summer I can’t wait to wear these colors and others for the next couple of months!
I am so sorry I haven’t posted in a while but things have been crazy busy! If you follow me on twitter or instagram (tavi1088) then you have seen post of my nails for this past couple of weeks. So please follow if you want to be kept up to date!
So this week I decided to embrace the colors for spring and even though it has been rainy and cold. i thought pastels would just put me in a good mood.
What I am wearing:
-Base Coat: Sally Hasen Diamond Strength Nail Hardener
- Essie spring collection: Play date
- Top Coat: Seche Vite
So I decide to change my base coat from the Orly that I normally use because i was running low and it seemed that my nails were still easily breaking after a while with it. So hopefully the Sally Hasen Diamond Strength nail hardener will do a better job.
I really love this color and it just reminds me of warm days and ice cream lol.
Hope you all are having a great week and until next time!
So I know I have been lacking in nails of the week post but lately I just haven’t been loving the colors I’ve been wearing. if you follow me on Twitter you were still able to see what I’ve been wearing for the past couple of weeks.
Anyway, this is about what I’ve been wearing this week I purchased some of the polishes from the new Spring Essie Collection. Which to be honest, I am not that in love with because two of the colors I think I have in other polishes so I didn’t purchase those. Overall, I do love the collection and the pastel collection mixed with the hot neon colors.
So what I am wearing this past week:
My usual top and bottom coat (Seche Vite and Orly Nail Defense). The color is ole caliente by Essie.
As you can tell from the pictures that the color is a kind of a neon red. It is a very true red color and it going to look great during spring and summer months. The color did apply very thick than usual Essie colors. I did this in two coats. The polish retails for $8 at CVS, which is where I purchased the collection. I really do enjoy this color.
Hope you all are having a great Sunday Until next time.
Hi beauty lovers!
So I am back again with Part II of the What’s in my lipstick bag. This post is dedicated to the lipstick and lip glosses that I carry in my bag everyday. This is an upclose view colors so you can see how they wear on the lips form the tube. I also will be showing you the lip conditioners and scrubs that I use at home to keep my lips smooth
So first up is the MAC Lipstick swatches:
MAC Lip pencil- Entertain Me
MAC- Lady Danger (Matte)
MAC Lipglass- Knockout
Now without the Lipglass:
MAC Lipstick- Viva Glam Nicki (Satin):
Note: I had to add liner because for me this lipstick bleeds since it is a satin finish but it only to the outer line of my lips. I did not fill them in with the pencil, so that is the true color.
MAC Lipstick- Quick Sizzle (Matte):
MAC Lipliner: Embrace Me, MAC Lipglass: Styled Packed:
Next up: Rimmel Kate Moss collection Lipstick swatches:
Rimmel No. 8:
Rimmel- Kate Moss Collection No. 12:
*Sorry this one is so small.. lost the original picture and add to take another one.
Next Up: Lipgloss!
NYX- LG 129 Beige
MAC Lipglass: Viva Glam VI
Now for the products that I use to keep my lips from chapping:
I have to say that the best products that I have ever found to keep my lip moisturized and smooth has to be Sara Happ lip scrub and lip balm. Not only does it smell and tast amazing it is the perfect scrub that takes off all the dead skin cells. I highly recommend going and purchasing this product. It is not sold in Sephora and I’m not sure it is sold at Ulta. I ordered mine from BeautyCollection.com. They retail for $24 each product.
Hope you enjoyed seeing what I will be wearing this spring and into summer. Let me know which products you try out or what is your favorite lipsticks and lip glosses for this coming spring and summer.
So I want to share what I currently have in my lipgloss pouch that I carry everyday in my purse. I carry a separate make-up bag just for my lipsticks to make it easier for me to locate them in my purse. Now for most this might be a lot to carry everyday but I tend to change my lip color through out the day so I like to have options
So first I will show an overview of what is in my purse then I will post the lip swatches of the lipsticks and lip glosses that I carry in my next blog post.
I carry this small clinique make-up bag that I got with a free gift with purchase months ago, just for my lip products in my purse. It is nice and roomy and actually holds a lot of stuff which you will see in a moment
I know for some that this may seem like a lot but for this is really small compared to my collection of lip products. I do switch things up every couple of weeks to keep the rotation fresh and so that i can use up a lot of the products, but lately I’ve been loving this collection for upcoming spring and really don’t see myself switching it all that much.
So I carry five lip pencils with me and as you can see there is a variation of color. Starting from the left-MAC: Entertain Me, Magenta, Redd, Embrace Me, and Stripdown. I can’t recall which collection each pencil belongs too but I know Stripdown and Magenta are permanent and I believe Redd is as well. I like to carry different lip pencils because they can really work as an lipstick so they afford me more color range. Also it is nice to mix with the lipsticks and lip glosses that I carry to make different lip colors.
On too the lipsticks:
I carry three MAC lipsticks with me. They are Lady Danger, Viva Glam Nicki and Quick Sizzle. Lady Danger and Quick Sizzle are a Matte finish while Viva Glam Nicki is a Satin finish. I am still thinking about doing a review on her lipstick but i will be posting pictures of them in my next post. As you can see I have a red/orange lipstick, baby neon pink and a hot pink. So depending on my mood I can be as bold as I want. My favorite of the three is Quick Sizzle, which came out with the MAC spring collection: Shop. Not sure if it is still available and really wish that I bought a second one because I love it so much!
I also carry two drugstore lipsticks currently and they both happen to be by Rimmel London. They are from the Kate Moss collection that I randomly found at a nearby Walgreens. I wish her collection gave them names instead of numbers but I love the formula of these lipsticks and as you can tell i wear the nude one a lot (No. 8). No. 12 I don’t wear as much but I’m sure as the weather changes that I will be reaching for it more. It is a lovely tangerine color.
Next up Lip gloss:
So of course it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t carry an equal amount of lip gloss to go with the lipsticks that I carry. So I carry five lip glosses which are from left to right- MAC Style Packed, MAC Knockout, MAC Viva Glam VI, NYX-Beige, and Urban Decay- Naked (which is a sample that came with my Naked 2 palette).
So as you can see, my lip gloss varies just like my lipstick and so that it compliment whichever lipstick that I am wearing or lip pencil. My everyday would have to be MAC Viva Glam VI, it is the perfect mix of nude rose and sparkle.
Now my lipstick purse wouldn’t be complete without a fair amount of lip conditioners to keep my lips from chapping through out the day. My current favorites are- Carmex (cherry flavor), Maybelline Baby lips -Pink Punch and MAC tendertone- Purring. Now the tendertone just came out with a collection from MAC so it just so happens to be in my purse right now. The other two are staples that I like to keep my lips hydrated.
Lastly, I carry a lip brush with me for when I want more control when applying my lipstick, especially for the finishes that are more creamy and can be a bit hard to work with. I love my MAC 316 not only because it has a sleek look but it really is a great brush.
Now that is everything that I carry with on a daily basis. Again, I know this may seem like a lot for most but for me it is pretty normal and really is only a small sample of my lip collection. I love lipstick and lip glosses and color and since I can pull off a really bold lip I like to use that to my advantage.
My next post will show swatches of all the lipstick and lip glosses on my lips and what lip conditioners such as balms and scrubs that I use at home to keep my lips smooth and lovely. So please check back for that and until next time beauty lovers
