Sephora March Play! Box

Image
**Bought It**
 It's Sephora Play!Box time again and I am sooo pumped about what I got this month. I am pretty sure these keep getting better and better each month. I have yet to receive a box that I didn't like. So, let's jump in and see what I got! Atelier CologneClĂ©mentine California Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume This scent thoooooo! I love every Atelier perfume I have tried. I just happen to have an overload of perfumes right now, but this is going on my "want" list. As soon as I clear out my stash, this is it!! VerbGhost Oil I have talked so much about this product. This is my all time favorite, fix-everthing-that's-wrong-with-my-hair product. I bleach my hair pretty bad, so when my hair is feeling extra dry, I add a little bit of this and work it in to my wet hair. It fixes all. I always add a little dab when I am done flat ironing to get rid of all those fly aways and anything that is drying out. If you never have tried this, you need to! I feel in love! Ur…

Sally Hansen Easter Quick and Easy Nail Art

Image
**Contains Press Samples**
Easter is creeping up on me way to fast this year. I'm barely getting decorations out let alone being anywhere close to having anything planned or shopped for.  I wanted to do a little Easter mani design, but like I said, I have been seriously lacking in the time department. I pulled this super easy-to-do design out when I was swatching these colors. I did a quick "egg tip" design. I decorated all of my eggs on the tips of my nails and made them with fun designs that I would decorate my own Easter eggs with.  What do you think of this design? I wish I would have made my eggs, more egg shaped. Do you have an Easter mani lined up yet?

Colors Used:
All Below are Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Colors
Aqua Chakra
Lilac Insomniac
Make Me Mauve

Sephora Favorites- Scouted by Sephora

Image
**Bought It**
I had a little Sephora loot from Christmas- yes, I still have some leftover Sephora money from Christmas. NO, I am not sick.. lol. Anyway, I decided to purchase a couple of these little sample boxes. I got to show you the Skin Fitness Kit a week ago and now I am going to show you the Scouted by Sephora box. Of course, there's drama involved... stay tuned.  First up, Milk Makeup mascara. This mascara comes in a lipgloss like tube instead of the traditional mascara tube. I actually like it for traveling purposes because it's small. The brush is an hourglass shape and the bristles are pretty spread out. I actually like the brush, a lot. The application and formula is pretty great, too. I will be reusing this product. As far as a repurchase, it's probably a no because I can't have a monogamous relationship with a single mascara. I just can't do it. This is the third Milk Makeup product that I have used and I am totally digging all that they are about!  W…

Sally Hansen is Bringing Spring into Bloom!

Spring is in the air!!! Yes it is with these colors. Sally Hansen is bringing in the Festival Floral color collection with their Miracle Gel line. I loooove this line because it's a no light gel system that uses a color and then a top coat. They sell these in cute duo packs for only $14.99. There are 8 new shades with this collection and I have 3 to show you today!  Aqua Chakra This is a gorgeous aqua leaning turquoise color that screams nothing but Spring.  With only 2 thin coats for Step 1 and a thin Step 2 top coat, you can get this gorgeous color for yourself.  Lilac Insomniac  Ok, lets get real about this color! This is a super hot, violet fuchsia. Lilac Insomniac is the perfect transition shade.  I love how deep and powerful this color is on my skin tone. I am actually pairing this with the beauty below for this weeks mani.  Make Me Mauve Make Me Mauve is a pink leaning mauve that makes for a perfectly light Spring shade.  Pairing this with Lilac Insomniac is…

Rimmel London Magnifi'Eyes Shadow Palette

**Press Sample**
Hello All!! I am back after a much needed vacation and I have something so great to show you. I actually brought this on vacation with me and used it on the bride!! Yes!! Stay tuned.... My brother got married and I used this awesome 12-color palette on the bride. It is so diverse and has so many great colors that I just love. There are three different palettes available and I am showing off #002.  As you can see, they are all shimmer colors. They are all very smooth and apply very nicely, as well. There is a little fallout, but enough to manage by a simple brush tap. The thing I love most about this palette is the blendable color selection. The combinations are really endless. The really great thing about this is that it retails for just under $8! Totally worth it!! Overall, I really liked this palette. I have added it to my everyday makeup use because it's so versatile. If I feel like doing a full on look, I can use so many colors to make a deep, sexy smokey eye…

Zoya Charming Collection 2017 is Bringing on the Spring

Image
**Press Samples**
Ok... I am totally impressed by this collection. There are three creme finishes and three shimmer micro sparkle finishes. I am super excited about all of the purple shades, too! I mean, hello heaven, to a purple lover like me!!
JORDAN
Jordan is a soft bubble gum pink that is perfect for all those spring manis! It's super soft and full coverage in one coat! I did two just for good measure, but you can get away with one if you are in a hurry.

AMIRA
Amira is a soft, baby blue that Zoya describes as a soft dewy blue with micro sparkles throughout. These are a little bit more sheer than the cremes, so you may have to go with two to three coats to get a good coverage. It looked way more sheer than it really is in the bottle.

LACEY
Lacey is a light pastel green swirled with some micro sparkles. Zoya describes this as a light dewy green. I say more like a very pastel lime. I don't own a color like this, so I am pumped to add it to my collection. It's so unique and …
