Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash in Cobalt Crystal and Fuchsia Flash

Add Some Sparkle to the Holiday Season With Revlon

One of my favourite things about the holiday season is the added sparkle to everything. From decorations to part dresses everything gets a little boost of bling this season, and your makeup should be no different. Revlon has an awesome limited edition line of sparkly eye shadows and liners to create eye-catching looks.

The limited edition Revlon Photoready Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash is a dual-ended product with a super sparkly liner matched with a creamy shadow. There are 10 colour duos to choose from and they all pack a punch of glitter and pigmented shadows. The shades I have are Fuchsia Flash and Cobalt Crystal.

The shadow end of the tube is a creamy formula that is easy to blend and very opaque. Many of the shades are frosty and metallic looking. The liner side is a glitter formula in a gel base, with a skinny brush for easy application. The pairs go well together but can also be mixed, matched, or worn individually.

Both ends of the product are super easy to apply and glide on really smoothly. They have great colour choices and all of them are bold and bright. I love that the glitter can be layered for lots of sparkle, or lightly applied for a more spread out sparkly look. The liner side can be used as a thin line of glitter or blended for all over sparkle. It can even be applied to lashes for something really special.

The shadows have a great formula and last for quite a long time. I didn’t have any problems with creasing or flaking when I wore the shadow. I love that the duos are paired together so I can grab one product and know that it will work well together and create a complete look. Although the shades are pretty bold and bright, and maybe not for everyday wear, they are awesome for a special night out or a holiday event and I will definitely be reaching for them this season!

OPI My Dogsled Is a Hybrid

My Two Polish Picks From The OPI Nordic Collection For Fall 2014

New seasons always bring new styles and that doesn’t only apply to fashion. As excited as I am about boots and legging, I’m also excited about Fall beauty products. From dark berry lipsticks to new nail polish shades, Fall brings a new colour palette to play with. I’ve picked out two fabulous nail polish shades from the new OPI Nordic Collection that will be perfect for Fall.

As always this collection has some adorably themed names including Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm? (which actually was out of stock when I went shopping!) and Going My Way or Norway. All of the shades are great Fall choices but the two I picked are My Dogsled is a Hybrid and My Voice is a Little Norse.

My Dogsled is a Hybrid is a beautiful light sea-foam green shade. It looks like a lighter version of the classic Tiffany blue colour from China Glaze, aptly named For AudreyMy Dogsled is a Hybrid is a great soft shade that will really complement the darker tones of Fall. I can totally see this mani popping when paired with brown, plum, or grey outfits.

My Voice is a Little Norse is the one glitter of the collection, and it’s a versatile polish for any season. It has a holographic sparkle and a slightly grey coloured base. It looks awesome over a lot of different colours, including red, black, and navy blue. I can see this shade being quite handy when it comes around to the holidays, since a little sparkle can spice up and special occasion.

OPI Pink Yet Lavender glitter nail polish

A Sparkly Pink Polish That Looks Out Of This World

I’ve always been fascinated with celestial nail art.. you know the ones that look like starts and space. I’ve never tried doing on myself, and they seem like very time consuming manicures to do. I still hope to try one day but until then I found a pretty pink glitter nail polish that looks like a scene from outer space.

I layered OPI Pink Yet Lavender over Essie Licorice and came up with a stellar combination. It looks like the milky way or some starry sky. I tried it over OPI Big Apple Red as well and liked that combination too – maybe even for Valentine’s Day?

Whatever colour I tried this polish on I really liked it. Something about the tiny silver glitters and the larger pink ones made a beautiful mix together. I really like this polish and specifically adore it over a black base.

Do you think this glitter polish looks like a galaxy?
