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 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 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 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 I can't wait to try it out in some sunlight.
Abby is the pastel purple of the purples... yes give me ALL the purps... Anyway, Zoya says this is a light lavender. They are really steering away from the word pastel this year, but I can't help but describe them this way. I loooove how gentle and dainty this color is. Great job!
Gahhhh!! This color though Zoya says Tina is a medium amethyst creme. This is another full coverage in one coat, but again, I did a two coat mani for good measure. This color is so pretty and unique and with the combination of all three purples, this will make for some awesome nail art.
Millie is the purple micro sparkle of the group and it's so pretty and bright! This leans on the sheer side, so be sure to add an extra coat or two. This is a perfect transition color and I can't wait to rock this for the summer and spring! Bring on all things warm!!
To match Tina, Zoya added a new lipstick to their collection. Violette is a pretty purple leaning fuchsia color. The application is smooth, like the rest of the Zoya lipsticks. It does last 4-6 hours with eating or drinking. Make sure you carry this along with you for quick reapplication.
Overall, I think this is a great collection. There is a nice mix of finishes and a great mix of springy colors. I love that there is a new lipstick with the collection; which is perfect for the spring. Do you love any of these colors? What do you think of the new lipstick color? Are you planning on buying any of these?
This is my first time using any products from GA-DE Cosmetics, so I was excited to see what they can do. When using a product for the first time, I always like to learn a little bit about the company and then get a really good feel for their products. I was sent a full set of products to create a full face look. GA-DE Cosmetics says to wear their brand is to, "feel beauty of every day life, to feel powerfully feminine and to live for the richest experience life has to offer". Yes! It goes along perfectly with my Make Me Pretty philosophy of using products that make YOU feel good about yourself.
First up, two lipsticks. One in a sultry red color and the other a nude. The Idylic Soft Satin lipstick comes in 12 different colors ranging from the nude above to a deep plum color. Each satiny lipstick is infused with lip care ingredients that include hyaluronic filling spheres to help smooth out those kissers.
When I first tried them on my wrist as a swatch, I loved …

First up, something that will give you a summer glow all year round! This product is a must have for me! I am also throwing in some shades for your eyes, color for your nails and goodies for your face. Today I've joined up with 16 other beauty bloggers to do a fun blog hop GIVEAWAY! If you are unfamiliar what a blog hop is, it's pretty simple. Each lady in the hop is giving away something (beauty-related) on their own blog and you can click through from one blog to another, entering the giveaways as you go, until you end up back where you started -- right here at my blog. Once you do that…
Today, I am bringing back some oldies and some newbies from Pacifica. I really love this brand. In fact, one of my favorite highlighters is a Pacifica product. You can check it out here. I have had some really great products from Pacifica and I am glad to show you a couple more.
First, I have this awesome palette, Power of Love, from Pacifica. There are 10 different colors in this little flip top beauty. There is matte, satin and pearl finishes which makes it really nice to create a sweet multi-dimensional look. Each of the colors are silky smooth and stay that way throughout application. The colors are packed with pigment.
The shadows are infused with coconut to create a smooth and crease-less application. All of these are made without animal testing, animal ingredients, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum. Another awesome thing is that Pacifica will donate a portion of their sales to support clean water! All packaging is recyclable and the printing is done…
