Don't Buy it: Nicole by OPI Love your Life

Pinks are by far my favorite nail polish color. I just love that they are very versatile, you can use them all year round and on about any occasion. So when I was at Target I saw this pretty glittery pink nail polish with hearts and golden shimmer. So irresistible!

I got home and it was a disappointment. I tried so much to like this polish and make it work, but I couldn't. The hearts look very childish on your nails, like something a 5 year old would love, and they are very hard to get out of the bottle. I only used my bottle 3 times and look at how much it's left.

It is impossible to get the hearts out of the bottle. They just sit there at the bottom of the bottle. It is so annoying and frustrating, that I threw this away. I usually throw my stuff when it is very old, but this I just couldn't stand looking at it. I would never bother purchasing another one of these glittery polishes from Nicole.

For Audrey

For Audrey must have to be the most well known polish from China Glaze.
A creme Tiffany blue. Really opaque, and applies heavenly.It is a very unique color, I have not seen anything that looks similar from any other brand. Definitely recommended.

Black Swan

So here is the look I've been working on. I really ha a great time recreating Natalie Portman's look on Black Swan. I haven't seen the movie, since it was a limited released no theathers near me are showing it. Only one that is by my university, but ahhhh it's 1 hour away.

I used the following to create this look. Very cheap!

-elf complexion perfection
-maybelline line stiletto (blackest black)
-maybelline eyestudio gel liner (blackest black)
-nyc eyedust sparkle (opal sparkle)
-mac lipstick (most popular)
-nyx lipliner (blackberry)
-mac mineralize skinfinish (porcelain pink)

I wish I would have taken a photos when i took the makeup off, it looked like mud, and it was quite difficult to get it off because I believe the gel liner is waterproof. But I still like the result. Here is a photo.

You can watch it here

I went to see Black Swan this weekend , and i loved, it's the best movie I've seen this year.

Hautelook Haul

Who hasn't heard of hautelook before?

If you haven't, Hautelook is a private discount online store. They have a variety of merchandise ranging from clothes, toys, furniture, jewelery, beauty products, etc. These sells only last 2 days, and everyday there are new sales. There are also a wide variety of brands, I've seen Dior, Nyx, Urban Decay, Stila, Michael Todd, Juicy Couture, Betsey Johnson, among others

I joined Hautelook a couple months ago, my only reason was to buy discounted makeup. On November 1st they had an Urban Decay Event, and I was quite late for the event (about 2 hours) and there were certain items that were already sold out. Therefore I only ordered 3 items.

Urban Decay Summer of Love Nailpolish set

Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow : Electric, and Purple Haze.

So you can get an idea of how much chaper the products are I will give you the prices. Urban Decay E/S are $17 ea. I got these for $4.25, The n/p set retails at $28 and I got it for $7. (US dollars). The discount is pretty good.

Here are swatches for the eyeshadows

Left to Right: Electric, Purple Haze

All of the products are brand new and authentic. The reason they are so cheap is because Hautelook is "the middle guy" when you place an order they send it to the manufacturer's warehouse, then they send the order to the hautelook warehouse and then they send it to you.
That being said shipping takes forever!

As I mentioned, I placed my order on November 1st, received an email with my tracking number on the 17th. The email said it was going to arrive that same day, well it didn't. It arrived 3 weeks after. To be honest I was kind of pissed because the tracking number they gave me was never updated, and their costumer service is horrible, they will just tell you to wait.

I do not know if I'll ever order from Hautelook again just because of the shipping. They would have to have an amazing sale for me to want to buy once again from them.

November Favorites

Hi guys!

For some reason YouTube wasn't letting upload any video.
So I will write down the products I loved during the month of November.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss.
These are my favorite lipglosses. Love the packaging they are very elegant looking. They look so much like the Dior lipglosses. I usually hate lipglosses, I hate how a lot of them are so sticky, and don't wear off evenly. These on the other hand are not sticky at all, they wear off evenly and they are so moisturizing! Did I also mention that they have spf 15?
My Favorite colors: Firecracker and Nude Lustre

Aquolina Pink Sugar
I got this perfume with the Friends and Family Sale at Sephora. I had never smelled it before, and after so many reviews and raves I decided to order it and omg I love it so much! I'm terrible at describing scents, but this smells like straight up cotton candy with a hint of vanilla. It is a sweet scent, very feminine and the guys love this.

Urban Decay Sin Eyeshadow

I also got this on the F&F sale at Sephora. It is a shimmery champagne color. I love to wear this all over the lid. It just brings in so much light to your eyes.

That's all of my favorites... let me know what products you have been loving!

You Just Wait

Sorry guys I haven't been posting as much as I like.
My sister went on vacation and took the camera with her, and I was left camera-less.
But I have this new swatch!
This one is You Just Wait by Sinful Colors. Which is only 1.99 at Walgreens.
I must say that at first I hated it. I love pinks, and was looking for something that was very neutral. The first coat was extremely sheer, the only thing I could see was the golden/green shimmer. So I applied 4 coats in total to get the color opaque.

Still wasn't completely pleased the way it looked. I felt I was something my gramma would wear.

After two days of wearing this polish the color seem to become duller... and that's when i started to love this color!, weird right? I don't know if all the Sinful Colors are like this because I have "this is it" and it did the same thing.

I think this is one polish that is a must have and a staple item, it's a color that will never go out of style, and super cheap!
