BellaPeirre Cosmetics Mineral Blush I am such a huge fan of loose mineral powders for my face especially tinted ones. This is very sheer so you will have to build with it, a lot. This is in the shade Autumn Glow which does have a very nice glow but it's very light. It is almost a bronze peachy color. 

Onomie Powerful Priming Serum This is a two-in-one with their priming power of a serum. The awesome thing about Onomie is that they give 1% of their yearly sales to She's the First. She's the First is a non-profit organization that supports first-generation female high school graduates in low income countries. What a great organization!!

Rodial Dragon Blood Hyaluronic Tonic This stuff is awesome! It smells amazing and it feels even better. I thought for sure this was going to be heat or a warming spray, but it's not. It's so cooling and soothing. I have used this as a re-fresher mist, a moisturizing boost, and just a toner boost. It has serum from th…

Formula X XCEL and Delete All

**Provided by Influenster**

Today, I have a really fun and very useful product to show you. The System Xcel was given to me from Influenster to try out and share with you guys. The System Xcel is a 4 step gel process without lights or worry. In addition to this easy to use system, I have an awesome... like totally awesome... nail polish remover. Read on! Delete All is a nail polish remover that comes in a jar with a sponge. There are 5 little finger holes and some awesome formula. My previous mani was all glitter. You all know how difficult it is to remove glitter. The last picture in the collage shows the removal after only 30 seconds in the Delete All. I dipped them in for about another 30 seconds and it was completely gone. Just a little finger wiggle and magically removed! I am in love with this product and I will be repurchasing when I run out. Once my nails were free from polish, I started the system. There are 4 simple steps to create your at-home gel manicure. Cleanse, prime…

Zoya Fall/Winter Urban Grunge Metallics Review

**Press Samples**

I am finally bringing you the second half of my fun Zoya Fall/Winter collection. I cannot wait to finally start rocking them. September 1 for me means Fall so bring on all those colors! There are 6 holos and they are $10 each. Alicia Zoya hays this is a linear holo with golden flakes. I say it's gorgeous! I'm not so sure about the linear part, but there is a holo there. It is more scattered than anything, but it is still super pretty! This is an awesome accent nail color and will be fantastic for a winter blues pick-me-up.
Finley Ok, this is one of my favorites from this collection. I am a purple girl at heart, so this screams out my name! Yes, true story. This is pretty much full coverage in 2 coats.I would throw a third on here but I am afraid it just might be too thick. BUT it's soooo pretty! 
Troy This color is described as a liquid pewter with a touch of black and gold. They put it in the gray category. Now, I agree it's definitely a metallic gray…

Madam Glam has Smoothies!!

**Press Samples**
Madam Glam sent me so awesome gel crellies to show you and I really can't wait to show them off to you! There are a total of 36 colors in this vegan and 5-free collection and I have 6 that I am going to give you a little peek at. For the most part, they are so easy to use- as long as you understand how gels work. The formula for these polishes are VERY thick- like most other gels. When you apply them, you need to work with thin layers. DO NOT glob them on thinking you will build faster because the polish will just burn when you cure it. Don't forget to prep your nails by cleaning them with alcohol and drying them completely.

Plum Yummy
This gorgeous lilac polish is a beautiful crelly with large gold hexes, red circles and gold micros throughout. This applied very nicely- thick, but easy to apply in thin layers.
The awesome thing about this polish is that I didn't have to fish at all! What is on my nails in the pictures is what I got directly from the brus…
