Review: China Glaze Crackle Nail Polishes

After using OPI's Black Shatter, I really wanted to try out these Crackle Nail Polishes from China Glaze. I love the fact that there are more colors than just the normal black crackle, and that's what intrigued me the most about these China Glaze polishes.

OPI Teenage Dream

I have OPI's "Teenage Dream" on my nails at the moment. This nail polish came out with the Katy Perry Collection that was released in Spring 2011. This collection was inspired by Katy Perry's Teenage Dream album. The polishes were named after the songs on her album, which I think is super cute!

"Teenage Dream" is a very glittery pink nail polish. The color is similar to the pink clouds that are in her Teenage Dream video. The nail polish is a cotton candy color with large chunks of glitter and reflexes in it. I can't help but stare at my nails sometimes when I have it on because it's just so pretty and sparkly!

I applied two coats of this onto my nails in order to get it to the opaqueness that it is in the picture. I think next time I'm going to try 3 coats. You can also layer this color over a pink nail polish to give it a little sparkle! "Teenage Dream" isn't like any other polish I have in my collection. It's really unique! If you love pink and glitter then I definitely recommend that you run out and get this! :)

Review: ELF Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara

The ELF Lengthening & Volumzing Mascara is a part of ELF's Studio line. This product can be purchased online at www.eyeslipsface.com or at your local Target for $3. I have this mascara in Black, but they also carry it in Dark Brown.

Face of the Day:

Products Used
-Olay Complete Moisturizer SPF 15 (combo/oily)
-Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstorm
-Maybelline Expert Wear Blush in Pinch o' Pink
-Random Silver Eyeshadow Color
-Maybelline Eyeshadow in Night Sky

-Covergirl Lashblast Length in Black Brown

I wanted to create a look that would go well with my glasses. Since my glasses have a thicker frame, I chose a darker color to use all over my lid. This look was pretty simple. I only used 3 eyeshadows(a shimmery charcoal color all over the lid, a satin silver color as the transition color, and a vanilla color for the brow highlight). For my face, I only applied moisturizer and I used a pressed powder to help my skin from getting too oily throughout the day. I also used a pink blush just to give my cheeks a little flush to them. As for the lips, I used a lipstick that is a tad bit darker than my own lip color, and I topped it off with a shiny gloss. Overall, I think the look goes well with my glasses :)

Update: Project 10 Pan & MAC's Surf Baby Collection Anticipation!

To be honest, I don't think I'm doing too well as I would have liked. I don't wear a full face of makeup everyday when I go to class so it's been a bit difficult to use up all of my products! I think I'm going to switch my products around a little so that I'll be able to finish up 10 products by the end of the month!

On a side note, I'm really excited for MAC's Surf Baby collection for Summer 2011. The US launch date is on May 26th. I love the packaging! It's white with a surf board design on it with the MAC logo and a red hawaiian flower. I want to pick up the cheek powder, one of the studio careblend pressed powder, a lipglass, and maybe a few shadows.

I'm hoping that I'll be done with 10 items by then so that I'll be able to purchase a few things from this collection. Wish me luck!

An Apology.. & Shoe Haul! :)

I apologize for the lack of posts lately! :( I have been too consumed with work, school, & everything in between so I haven't had time to blog that much on here. I will definitely try to blog more often though!
