[NOTD] - I dream a dream...

I am in love with pastel and bright colors, especially for the Spring and Summer! During a quick trip to Sephora, my eyes caught sight of this cute bright blue nail polish! It also helped that I love OPI formulas! Time for swatches and for a NOTD!

[NOTD] - A crewed interest

I am in love with Essie's Spring collection, though I can't really say that I love their formula. I bought a couple of their nail polishes and I find that its very streaky, thought it might be because the color is pastel and that is to blame. However, their colors are beautiful and I often find myself reaching for their polishes (just to look at the name or for a closer look) whenever I am at a drugstore. They are pretty expensive at $8 a pop but some of their colors are well worth it.

[NOTD] - '212' She dialed

Quick update!

Recently I had another mini haul from Sephora and bought three new polishes. I've tried one at the Sephora store before at their nail station and fell in love. I received compliments as well!

[NOTD] - A shimmer in the dark

Yay for another blog post! :)

This was is a short one BUT I also have a video on the way so that counts for something right? Something simple yet beautiful! I've gotten tons of compliments for my nails and it was basically used with two polishes!

[REVIEW] - Barbie Eye Gossip Aqua

Sorry that it has been so long since I've last posted but I just got a job (YAY!). However, I have been taking pictures and recording some videos so I can have some things to work on when I do find the time! Without any further ado, here is a lens review!

I usually get my circle lens from honeycolor because they have most of the styles I like and they are pretty quick with their shipping. I haven't had any troubles with their shipping or their products so whenever I need new lens, I would head over for a quick shop. Recently, however, I wanted to try some new styles and have more options! I've always heard of Pinkyparadise but have never ordered from there, so I was a bit skeptical. Also, their prices a bit more expensive compared to honeycolor. So as a trial, I picked three styles that weren't available on honeycolor and decided to try out Pinkyparadise.

Unfortunately I can't comment on their shipping because I actually had it express shipped to me (I ran out of contact lens to wear) so I'm not sure which site is faster. Another unfortunate event was that I never got a shipping e-mail from them so I never knew that it shipped. I missed the first delivery time and had to check constantly for the second delivery from FedEx. I do have to say, however, that I love that I got different contact cases! When I ordered from honeycolor, they gave me 10 pig cases and it was hard to differentiate.

Overall, my experience with Pinkyparadise was pleasant and I don't mind re-ordering from their site if I want to try out some styles that honeycolor do not offer. Moving on from my opinions about the two sites, here is the lens review you've been waiting for!

Skincare Routine

Yay for new video update! I decided to make a video on my skincare routine because there are a lot of products I want to recommend and this was the easiest way for me to do that. My skin is combination oily and I am prone to blemishes and acne. It took a lot of trials and errors in selecting products! Hopefully this video would help anyone out there looking for new products.

Also keep in mind that everyone's skin is different. What might work for me might not work for you so be sure to ask for a sample of a product before you commit to buying or keep all receipts if you must return the product!

[NOTD] - Champagne!

I had a recent haul of nail polishes and I thought I'll show them off in a NOTD! I love the glitters that have recently been hitting the shelves. They're not all fine glitter, but more chunky and more texture! The different shapes also give it a nice effect as well. I am say to say that one of my favorite glitter nail polish from CoverGirl has croaked on me, but I did find a nice replacement! Essie's line of luxe effects are really cute! I almost couldn't help myself and bought all the shades.
