I thought it would be a fun idea to share the lipsticks I had in my bag this week, although this is the past two weeks. So these are all the lipsticks and glosses I grabbed for through the 8-19, I did use lip liners with a few of these but these are all the products I had in my bag. I think I am going to make this into a series, and yet again sorry for the lack of blogging.

March Favorites! 2013


This March has been crazy for me but it really did seem to just fly by. I was looking through my makeup and picking through the things I have really been loving this month and it turns out I have been a bit lip obsessed. This is also my 100 post! Sorry for the long paragraph and the shine in the photos.

Starting with the top row, Hard Candy Glamoflauge, I have this in light. It is so light, even on me and I have fairly pale skin, I like to use this in the center of my face without a foundation to conceal my redness and then bronze the outer part of my face, it is full coverage though and fairly thick. The two blushes I have been loving this month are Jordana Rose Silk and Rimmel Pink Sorbet, Rose Silk is a medium pink and Pink Sorbet is a nice peachy pink, both are so pretty for spring and summer and go with pretty much any look. The main look I've been doing this month has been using the Wet n Wild trio in Walking on Eggshells, I use the crease color all over my lid and through the crease, the brow bone shade as suggested and the lid shade as an inner corner highlight, I do add in another dark brown shade into my outer v. Now for lips, I have been loving bold lips lately and the new Rimmel Kate Moss matte lipsticks, 101 is a nude/pink that is truly a my lips but better shade for me, this has turned out to be my perfect nude. 107 is a gorgeous berry, I have been wearing this when I want a bold lip over a red, and I honestly love red lips so that just screams this lipstick is a must. Along with the nude lips I have been loving the combo of yet again another Rimmel product, their Lasting Finish 1,000 Kisses lip liner in Natural and Tiramisu, I use Tiramisu on the edge and then fill in the corners with it too and use Natural in the center to add dimension. For glosses this month I have been loving Rimmel Stay Glossy in Here to Stay, I love this over the lip liner combo, it makes a gorgeous nude lip. The other gloss I've been loving this month is by Milani it's one of their Crystal Glosses in Pucker Up, this is so gorgeous over the Rimmel lipstick in 101. Lastly I decided to try something new for my brows so I picked up Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel, I don't like the brush part but the color is perfect for me and I do like the actual product.

Overall this month I have been loving Rimmel, what are some of your favorites this month? I have also really been loving curling my hair lately with small and medium hot rollers and hair oils.

Top Five Spring Polishes


I love nail polishes and spring is one of my favorite seasons when it comes to nail polish. I picked my favorite spring polishes, I only chose to pick five because come summer I intend on doing another one of these. These are all pastels, they range from $1.99 to $6.99 and are part of permanent collections.

From left to right: Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl, I just recently hauled this, but I know I will get a ton of use out of it this spring, it is a perfect light pink for spring, China Glaze Peachy Keen, which really needs shaken up sorry about that, this is by far my favorite of all of the ones mentioned in this post, it may even be my all time favorite polish, its a gorgeous peach shade and I just love the name, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, great mint color and a must for every collection; mint has also been really in the past few years and still is, Avon Vintage Blue, its a gorgeous pale blue and its surprisingly opaque, and lastly Sally Hansen No Hard Feelings, this is a bit darker then a lilac but still on the pastel side of purples, its great for those who want a light purple but not a lilac. Also sorry about the below picture, I didn't use flash to try to get as close to what the colors look like in person, but they are all pastel/light.

Mani Monday; Mimosa's before Mani's

This week I decided to use another one of the polishes I hauled last week, I used Peachy Keen as my accent nail. Both polishes are from China Glaze, Mimosa's Before Mani's is from the Avant Collect, Peachy Keen is a permanent color. I love this combination and have talked about Peachy Keen many times and its been in several Mani Mondays. Mimosa's Before Mani's is a beautiful coral that leans more pink then orange, there is a very subtle shimmer in it, but it appears to be a creme finish on your nails. This is a perfect spring combo and I suggest both these polishes. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat with no base coat. It did wear off a bit on my pointer fingers after about three days and then it started to chip the fourth day so that isn't to great but the polish is still gorgeous and I am rough on my nails.

The polish isn't that bright in person, it's more pastel. Sorry for the non cropped picture.

Last weeks haul, featuring Mimosa's Before Mani's, here. Mani Mondays including Peachy Keen: Peachy Keen With a Gold Sheen and Peach and Periwinkle, it was also mentioned in my favorite spring polish post which can be viewed here.
