NOTW; Ancient Jade


I recently visited Sally's to pick up some hair products, [Yes, I`m a hair junkie! Lol.] & this polish caught my eye. Lately I`ve been obsessed with dark colors & O.P.I polishes only, but I saw this & absolutely could NOT pass it up. Hello, it was $1.99!



Ancient Jade by Orly;


I`ve never tried a minty color or the brand Orly, overall I am digging both. I`ve gotten a TON of compliments on my nails. This was after 3 days if having this color on my nails. I did smudge my middle finger since I was in a hurry. :/ Also, no top coat was used & my mani is still in pretty decent condition! I actually like this Orly polish & may pick up more.


Do you ladies own any Orly polishes? If so, what are some of your favs?

Hope y`all enjoy your day!

All Of My Purple Life;

Hi guys!
So the Blogger's Collection from MAC came out this week. I wanted a few things, however I narrowed my list down to 1 item after seeing swatches. That is Afrobella's All of My Purple Life. I love purple lip products, so y`all know I couldn`t resist!

Compared to MAC`s So This Season lipglass;



My Thoughts;

Firstly, Thank you Afrobella for making this beautiful color & congrats on your collab with MAC. I looooved the color of this online. However, alone I don`t think I can work it. Maybe with a nice purple lipstick or even a purple lipliner it will look better on me. I`m satisfied with the purchase, but I wish it weren`t as dark. I will be doing a post showing different lip combos with this lipglass as well!




Did any of you ladies purchase anything from the Bloggers Collection?I know everyone[but me] really wanted Jealousy Wakes. I actually kinda still want Sparkle Neely, Sparkle; however I already own TOO many brown eyeshadows!

Normally I wear dark colors, but this week I opted for a nude shade.

San Tan-tonio by OPI was PERFECT for the job!






Hope you ladies enjoyed!

NYXcosmetics.com Haul;

Hiiii everyone! I`m back with yet another haul. I actually forgot about this package until I got my UPS confirmation. NYX of course was having their $1.20 sale which I unfortunately did not get to participate in. So I opted for the 50% off coupon. To me, that was actually better because it included Free Shipping as well. I can only imagine how much the shipping was during the sale.

My order came up to about $66 & I only paid $31. Not too bad. So on to the goodies...




NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in Antwerp, San Paulo, & Addis Ababa.


NYX Lip Lacquers in Coral-licious & Ultra Violet.

NYX Megashine Lipglosses in Pop & Nude Peach.


NYX Powder Blush in Pinched & NYX Cream Blush in Rose Petal.




NYX Cream Blushes in Orange & Hot Pink.

--------------------------------------------

Swatches;



I loooove everything, EXCEPT the Megashine Glosses,

Pop is just clear gloss with orange glitter & Nude Peach isn`t even nude. Major let down. :/



Hope you guys enjoyed the post & swatches.

Did you guys happen to purchase anything from the sale or using the coupon?

May Favs;

I actually remembered to do these this month! Lol.

I actually did not have alot of favs this month. & most of these were favs in April also.

On to the picks!



The first item I`ve been loving is my MAC Tinted Moisturizer.

Sooo, it's entirely TOO hot, well humid, here in NC for foundation. Plus I don't like my face to feel "cakey". This has actually lasted me a while. Thank goodness, because it is SUPER pricey!

Next, just two blushes. MAC Peachykeen & NYX Mocha.

&My new favvv highlighter, well second fav. MAC MSF in Brunette[CORRECTION; THIS IS REDHEAD MSF. Oops. Lol.]. This is a LE product, I was lucky to find one on eBay & snagged it for only $22 shipped! :D I absolutely adore it. It has 4 different strips of color & each one is amazing in it's own way. Now I want the other 2 highlighters from this collection!




Just 2 eye products.

MAC Espresso is the perfect crease color! I used it almost everyday.

My fav pencil eyeliners are the Rimmel liners. I picked up Panama for a more natural look & have been using it daily.



Finally my lip products. I used WAY too many lipsticks this month to feature them. You can check out my Pinky-Purple lipsticks to see the ones I`ve used this last month.

The NYX Mega Shine LGs are amazing! I love layering Tea Rose on top of any pink lipstick I wear. Miami Babe is the PERFECT lipgloss. Def my new favorite & I will need to get a backup soon!
The Rosebud Salve I actually purchased closer to the end of the month at Sephora. I`m in loooove. Best freaking lip moisturizer EVER! I use this night & day to keep my lips super moisturized. Plus it`s not too expensive, I believe it was $6. I definately want to try the strawberry one.


Hope you guys enjoyed!

Happy June.
