Small Haul

I have picked up a few new products from the store over the last few weeks and wanted to share them with you.

First up are 2 trios from L.A. Colors, I actually found these at a Dollar Tree! I picked one up in Grassy Knoll and one in Sand Dune! They both are really great little trios. They seem to be very pigmented and are long lasting. Can't beat that for a buck!

I also picked up a couple of the NYC Liquid Lipshines! I got one of these in my Holiday VoxBox from Influenster and I LOVE them!! I looked at my local Walmart and could not find them. So I was out shopping at my local Family Dollar and found a few colors there. They were $2.00 each. I got one in Prospect Pink and one in Brighton Beach Peach.

NYC Liquid Lip Shine

In my holiday voxbox, that I received from Influenster, I got a NYC Liquid Lip Shine in the color Nude York City, it has quickly become one of my favorite lip glosses! It has definitely been the one that I have reached for the most since I got it. It is a really great nude lip gloss! It is super shiny and not sticky at all. It feels very soft and light on your lips.

 The Lip Shines also contain vitamin E, which is a great moisturizer for your skin. The NYC Lip Shines are very affordable, as most of their make up is. They are only $2.49! The come in in 10 shades from nudes to berries. This is a product that I will be purchasing more of!

Have you tried one of the NYC Liquid Lip Shines? If so what color and what did you think about it?

Follow Up Review on the imPRESS Press on Manicure

These nails are AMAZING! Since these nails are 'flexible' you can not tell that you even have nails on! With other false nails they are hard and you can tell that you have them on. Also with the imPRESS nails you don't have to use glue, so I feel like they are better for your nails. I was able to literally peel these nails off in seconds, something that you absolutely can not do with other nails. When I pulled these off it did not harm my nails at all! Usually when I wear fake nails and I take them off my nails get stripped and are soft and weak for weeks afterwards, but not with these! I had them on for a week and I feel like they would have lasted even longer, but I wanted to paint my nails red for the Holidays, so I peeled them off.

I would definitely recommend these nails to any girls that want to wear fake nails. I give the imPRESS press on manicure a 10 for sure!

Review: Montagne Jeunesse

So I tried out my pomegranate and mango Montagne Jeunesse mask, that I received from Influenster, the other day. First of all I was really bummed that it was not as thick as it looked on the photo on the package. I thought the consistency would be more thick, clay like, but it was really thin, so that was a little disappointing. After I took the mask off  my skin did feel super smooth. The mask smelled amazing. It was, however a pain to get off, literally, it pulled at all the little hairs :/ I'm wondering if my face should have been left wet before I put the mask on.

So overall I would say that this is a pretty good product. I do wish that it had been a thicker mask.

Have you used a Montagne Jeunesse mask before? Which one?

imPRESS Press On Manicure -- First thoughts mini review

Today I tried out my imPRESS nails that I received in my Holiday VoxBox from Influenster and I just wanted to share my first thoughts on the product.

I think the thing that took the longest during the whole process was finding the right size nails to fit my nails. I don't feel like any two of the nails were the same size, so that made it hard to find the right fit. The actually application process was super easy! First I started off my wiping my nails off with the enclosed prep pad, which is basically just an alcohol wipe. To apply the nails all I had to do was peel the plastic sheeting off of the 'glue' on the nail. Then simply press the nail firmly to your nail.

So Pros and Cons of the imPRESS nails. 
Pros, super easy to apply, I also like that they are not made out of hard plastic like most other fake nails are. These feel more natural. You don't have to deal with using glue and getting your fingers glued together LOL. I also think that since you don't have to use nail glue, that these nails would be a little bit better for you nails, not so harsh on them.
Cons, I had a hard time finding nails that were a good fit for my nails.

The box says that they will last up to a week, if applied properly. So we shall see.

Thanksgiving Weekend Haul Swatches

Here are the polish swatches from the polishes I got over Thanksgiving weekend.

So first up is the Color Expression Wet 'N Wild Set I got from CVS! I think all of the polishes in this set are just beautiful! I love the names of the polishes too, very clever :)

 Next up are the Sinful Colors, NYC, and Confetti polishes that I got! Loving the Winterberry for the winter. And the Starry Silver looks great over the Silver polish from the Color Expression set!

Last but not least are the polishes from the Wet 'N Wild Little Luxuries set I picked up from RiteAid. I did not swatch all of them because I ran out of room LOL.

Winner Mail!

Over Thanksgiving I entered a contest that KISS was hosting on their Facebook page and I won a 2nd place prize pack!! I was super excited that I had won. So I received my prize pack the other day and was beyond excited about the goodies that I got!

I got a few coupons for KISS products, a brush on lip gloss (which I LOVE because it has menthol in it and I love a minty lip product!), False lashes and adhesive  ever lasting french tip nails, rhinestone nail art, eye liner and mascara!

And to be honest I did not even know that KISS made make up products! I thought they were just nails!!

So thanks so much to KISS! I will be trying out all these products and will be giving you  reviews on them.
