Here is what she used:
Natural Nail Base Coat
Crackle Glaze Cracked Medallion
Crackle Glaze Latticed Lilac

Sephora by OPI
It’s Bouquet With Me
Nicole by OPI
Top Coat Plus
Wet N’ Wild Fast Dry
Ebony Hates Chris
Managed to visit Sephora during Black Friday. This is what I purchased.
- Sephora Gloss Lab Set
- Sephora Mini Glitter Liner Set
Sephora Gloss Lab lip gloss set comes with seven lip glosses and three top coats. This is actually the third year I have purchased a Sephora Holiday lip gloss set. The lip glosses are affordable and very pigmented. The Sephora Gloss Lab set retails for $25.00.
I also bought the Sephora Mini Glitter Liner set. I’ve used Sephora’s glitter eyeliners in the past. I recommend using them on top of an eyeliner pencil. The glitter liner shows up better that way for me. The Sephora Mini Glitter Liner set retails for $15.00.
Still had ULTA coupons to use so I visited my favorite ULTA last weekend (I know again). This is what I purchased.
Devotion, Red Satin, Glitter All The Way
The World Is Not Enough, Care To Danse?, OPI Top Coat
I am at the halfway point of my beauty subscriptions. Now is the time for me to starting thinking about whether or not I want to renew my subscriptions.
The theme of the October ipsy Bag was “Hello Bombshell”.
My bag consisted of:
- The Balm What’s Your Type? “the body builder” Mascara – deluxe sample
- Mirenesse Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stain in Bomb 4 – full size
- Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment – deluxe sample
- Be a Bombshell Eye Liner in Onyx – full size
- Coastal Scents Eyeshadow Quad in Set 7
- Antique Lilac
- Lemon Chiffon
- Raspberry Tart
Another awesome bag from ipsy! For starters the “body builder” mascara really delivered. I don’t need to wear false eyelashes with this mascara. The lip bomb was very pigmented. At first I was concerned if the color was too light. I applied the lip bomb with a little help from a lip liner that was a little darker and the color was fine. The Pequi Oil treatment worked on my natural hair and gave it a nice shine without being greasy. Rocking the winged eyeliner was easy with the Bombshell eyeliner. The Coastal Scents eyeshadow looked nice next to my darker complexion. It was nice break from wearing neutral eyeshadow colors. There were two items from the ipsy bag that really stood out for me. Those items were the Balm What’s Your Type “the body builder” mascara and Be a Bombshell Eyeliner. This was a great combo for dressing up my eyes.
The theme of the October Birchbox was Goop.
My box consisted of:
- Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara – deluxe sample
- DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer – deluxe sample
- Embryolisse Anti-Age Firming Cream – sample
- Orofluido™ Beauty Elixir – deluxe sample
- Luna LemonZest Bar
I actually liked the October Birchbox. Hopefully they can remain consistent in providing decent product samples. The Chantecaille mascara gave me full natural looking lashes. I saw a difference in the way my skin looked after using the DDF serum. My skin did appear smoother. I wish there was more of the Embryolisse sample since it worked great on my combination skin. The Orofluido™ beauty elixir smelled wonderful. I applied it to my hair after I washed it and it made a great leave in conditioner. The Luna bar was actually delicious. I was expecting the bar to taste like cardboard. There were two items from this box that stood out for me. The DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer and the Orofluido™ Beauty Elixir. Since the weather in my area has gotten colder, these products prevented my hair and skin from drying out.
I visited my favorite ULTA store this past weekend (I can’t seem to stay out of that place). It has been a while since I bought any nail polish. I decided to check out the OPI James Bond Skyfall Collection.
I got a free base coat when I purchased two nail polishes.
Casino Royale, Base Coat, Moonraker
I also purchased the OPI Bond-ettes Mini 4 Pack
Goldeneye, The Spy Who Loved Me, The World Is Not Enough, Live and Let Die
Here is the additional purchase I made while visiting ULTA for the Urban Decay Event on November 3, 2012.
I like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils despite the fact they crease. They do make a terrific eyeshadow base and that’s how I use them.
Decided to give the Jumbo Lip Pencils a try.
When I do wear false eyelashes, the Ardell #110 lashes are currently my favorite.
I visited a different ULTA store located in the North Hills suburb of Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend. Di the Regional Manager for Urban Decay greeted me. This Urban Decay event was smaller than the one I went to in October.
This is what I purchased.
