What initially caught my eye about the Mega Shine Lip Gloss was obviously the price. This lipgloss retails at ULTA for $5.49. ULTA has NYX Cosmetics on sale quite often especially for by one get one 50% off (let’s not forget the ULTA coupons either). I was really surprised about how pigmented the Mega Shine Lip Glosses are. I was expecting these lipglosses to provide sheer color at best. More often than not I wear the lipglosses by themselves and don’t feel the need to layer them over lipstick.
The Mega Shine Lip Gloss comes in a variety of colors. They are definitely worth checking out.

Many of these subscriptions are first come first serve so there is a waiting list.
Not all eyeshadow primers are created equal. My all time favorite is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the Original. This is the best eyeshadow primer I ever used. My eye makeup did not crease, not even in hot and humid 90-degree weather. The 0.37 US fl. oz. retails for $20.00. The 0.85 US fl. oz. retails for $30.00. I know this may seem like a lot to spend on one product, however; to get a beauty product that delivers on its promise is worth it.

I originally purchased the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion at ULTA along with the Big Fatty Mascara and 24/7 Liner in Zero since it was in a set for $39.00.
Whenever I buy new nail polish I can always count on one of two things happening.
- I may never get the chance to use the nail polish.
- My youngest daughter will come up with some really cool nail designs.
This is what she used:
Purple Panic (Neon)
Japanese Koi (Neon)
Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Fly (Nicki Minaj Collection)
At least I know what happened to all of my nail polish. 🙂
