NOTW; Bite The Bullet

Hey everyone.
Sorry for the brief hiatus. I had some issues I needed to deal with.
I did pick my MAC giveaway winners from a small list who followed ALL the rules.
Congrats to Ashley & Kayla!
I have contacted them & I will be sending their prizes out shortly!
Onto the post.

I decided to share my NOTW.
I`ve been wearing Wet `n Wild`s Bite the Bullet.
It is a light purple shade. Very pretty.
I applied 2 coats to get the perfect opacity.






If you can`t tell, I have been loving the new & improved Wet `n Wild polishes!
If you have the older Megalast polishes, they are the same. Just a different brush.
I realized this when I almost bought a shade I already had! Lol.

What`s on your nails at the moment?
I`d love to know!

Hope you ladies enjoyed this post!
Thanks for reading!

Today I decided to share my current curly hair routine.
I`ve been doing this for the past few weeks, alternating between leave-ins.
So far this has been my favorite method.
Hope you ladies enjoy the video!
:]


Still haven`t figured out my hair type, but I`m thinking 3c[maybe?].

Thanks so much for watching.

Avon Haul #5;

Hey ladies!
Firstly, I have picked my MAC winners & will be reaching out to them shortly!
Today I`m sharing my recent Avon haul.
I picked up a ton of lip products this go around & some cute earrings.
Let`s get into the haulage! :D

I picked up all 4 of the new Avon Ultra Color Rich lipsticks from the Enchanted Spring limited edition collection.
[L to R;]
Perplexed Purple, Purple Hazed, Nude & Infused, & Apricot Mystery.

Swatches[in same order];
My thoughts on the Avon Ultra Color Rich lipsticks; These are VERY sheer & have a TON of shimmer in them. That is one thing I really dislike about these lipsticks. Purple Hazed & Apricot Mystery are two that I see myself wearing a few times. Purple Hazed is a light lavender, I would pair this with a purple liner or gloss. Apricot Mystery is a pink shade with purple & pink shimmer to it. Very pretty color. Perplexed Purple & Nude & Infused are two shades I can live without. Nude & Infused is a bronzey, shimmery, nude shade. Perplexed Purple is a purple with a slight gold shimmer to it. I was hoping this would be a bit more pigmented.
Price? $7.
A must buy? No.


[T to B;]
Big Color Glossy Lip Pencil in Glossy Mauve. Extra Lasting Lipstick in Totally Twig.
Swatches[in same order];
My thoughts; I LOVE THESE! Both of these are perfect for everyday wear. Glossy Mauve is a gorgeous brown nude, does not look mauve to me. The glossiness of it is perfect. This does apply sheer, but is perfect for an everyday nude lip. Totally Twig is a gorgeous rosy shade. This has a creme finish & goes on very smooth. Is it "extra lasting"? No, but it did last me a few hours before needing to be re-applied.

Price? Lip Pencil - $3.99. Lipstick - $9
A must buy? YES!


Next I have the Fruity Lip Juice in Fresh Grape & the Extra Lasting Liquid Eyeliner in black.
Swatches;

My thoughts; The lip gloss is wonderful. I picked Fresh Grape out because it is purple[DUH!]. I was not expecting it to be as pigmented as it is. That was a pleasant surprise. This lip gloss does have a grape scent, which I love. Great to throw in your purse for a light burst of color. I do plan on picking up a few more. The eyeliner I was hoping would replace my Sephora liner. It's very thick & applying it lightly does not work for me. It looks patchy on my eyes & then I have to go back & fill in the spaces. I don`t think I`ll be repurchasing.

Prices? Lip Gloss - $1.99. Eyeliner - $9.
A must buy? I recommend the lipgloss, but not the liner.


Last up are the GORGEOUS Princess Cut CZ Stud Earrings.
[VERY hard to photograph these.]
My thoughts; You guys need these in your life! I have gotten so many compliments on these earrings & have been wearing them ever since I bought them. They are so gorgeous & elegant. Perfect for any occasion.
Price? $4.99[Insane, right?]
A must buy? YES!


Overall I am happy with a few of my purchases this time around.
Have you ladies tried any Avon lately?

As always, you can purchase Avon from your local Avon rep or my online estore.
[Email me @ c0urtkneee@yahoo.com or tweet me for a discount on your first order with me.]

Hopefully you ladies enjoyed this post.
Have a great evening.

NOTW; 2% Milk

Hey guys!
Today I`m sharing my NOTW.
I picked up a few more of the Wet `n Wild nail polishes & thought I`d share one of the newest to my collection!

Wet `n Wild`s Megalast Salon Nail Color in 2% Milk.
Swatched;
[Layered 3 times.]
This shade is VERY sheer & normally this would not be a shade I would pick up. However, I decided to try something different. I actually like the overall color. It`s a creamy, milky nude shade. I usually don`t like sheer polishes, but this one has grown on me. Plus the price of this polish obviously influenced my purchase as well. Only $1.99 at Walgreens. I definitely recommend this shade!

Have you guys tried this shade yet?
What are you wearing on your nails currently?


Thanks so much for reading!
Have a great day!

MAC Reel Sexy Haul + Comparisons

Hey ladies!
First off thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway & hello to all of my new readers!
I will be contacting the winners in a few days, just have to go through the entries.

Tomorrow[4/5] MAC will be releasing 3 collections.
However, they always pop them up online a few days earlier.
I was lucky enough to pick up 2 lipsticks that I wanted.
Both of these lipsticks are from the new Reel Sexy collection.
I picked up Pink Popcorn & Heroine.
Both are limited edition lipsticks.

Pink Popcorn is a lustre. Very sheer & hard to build up this color.
The lip swatch below was about 5 or 6 swipes. As you can see, still a bit sheer.
I may try a liner underneath or a gloss on top when I wear this out.

Pink Popcorn.
Lip swatch.
Next up is Heroine.
Y`all know I love me a purple lip!
This is a matte shade, very gorgeous purple.
It does not look matte below because of my lip moisturizer underneath.
Mines did melt a little in the tube. :/

Heroine.

Lip swatch.
I also tried to compose a comparison of other MAC shades & a few drugstore brands;
From top to bottom;
Rimmel London Vintage Pink, Revlon`s Lilac, MAC`s Pink Popcorn, MAC`s Heroine, MAC`s Bust Out, MAC`s Violetta, MAC`s Goes & Goes, MAC`s Spitfire, MAC`s Up The Amp.
I personally don`t own any shades that are exact dupes to these shades.
If you come across any, please do share!

You can purchase Pink Popcorn & Heroine at your local MAC store/counter or online if they have not sold out!

Did you guys purchase anything from Reel Sexy?
If so, what?

Thanks so much for reading!
Have a great evening & happy shopping!
