When I first saw this nail color I knew I had to have it! Rockstar Pink is a glitter nail polish with mostly pink glitter. When you look closely at it you can see that it has blue, red, silver and gold and it is a very fine glitter, not chunky at all.
Usually when I buy glitter nail polish you need quite a few coats to make it look like it does in the bottle, or add a layer of colored polish underneath to make the glitter stand out. Not so with this baby! This is with just two coats! The formula is pretty thick and not runny at all. Another thing that I love about this nail polish is that it also dries really quickly.
You can find this and other Sally Hansen nail polishes at your local drug store and other stores like Target and Walmart. I bought mine from Target for $2.44 and the best part is that I had a $1 off coupon! $1.44 for some blinging nails? Yes please!!

I’ve seen a lot of reviews on the new Milani baked blushes, so I decided to check them out for myself. The Target that I went to didn’t have a large selection, but they did have Luminoso which was the one that I was really wanting. It is a shimmery peach shade that would look great on ALL skin tones. It is very true to color when you see it in the pan. It’s not too orange or too pink, it is the perfect peach shade. It has a very light sheen to it that is not overpowering or chunky glitter. Luminoso is very pigmented so if you have a fair skin tone you can apply it lightly, as for darker skin tones I think it would also give a beautiful peach glow.
I got mine at Target for around $8.00, and you can also find it in drugstores. It does come with a little brush that has it’s own little compartment under the pan and a small mirror.
This has quickly become one of my all time favorite blushes! You should try to pick this shade up, like I said I think it would look gorgeous on everybody!

I went to my mailbox a few days ago and too my surprise there was a coupon for a free box of the new John Frieda Precision Foam Hair color! I immediately went to the store and picked up a box in the shade 4BG Medium Chocolate Brown.
They claim to be “The first ever premium permanent home hair colour that uses foam technology to deliver salon-quality results at home”.
First is very easy to mix and apply. You mix the color into the developer and tilt it five times, DO NOT shake. To dispense the foam you squeeze the bottle and apply the foam to your hand, then onto your hair. They do provide you with black salon quality gloves, not the cheap plastic ones that come with other at home hair colors.
The application was very easy for me, and you get a lot of the product. Even though I have shoulder length hair, I have a ton of hair and usually have to buy two boxes so that I have enough to cover all of my hair. With this one I had more than enough for my hair to be completely covered. You leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse off and use the provided conditioner and your done! There was no dripping on my clothes, bathroom, or my face, and it rinses out very easy and quickly. I can’t say that with other hair dyes I’ve tried. I normally spend 20 to 30 minutes rinsing my hair making sure I have gotten all the dye out. I was very happy with the end result, there were no streaks in my hair because it covered everything. The color does look a little darker, but I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that I already had dyed my hair with another dark color months before. You can’t lift color with color!
The packaging is more sleek than other dyes and they have a wide range of colors to choose from, 20 in total. It costs $10-13 and you can find it at Target, Walmart, Ulta, and drugstores. It may be a little pricier than other at home hair dyes, but I think it’s worth the money! Easy, mess free, and great results!

Not too long ago I was at Nordstroms and I stopped by their Bobbi Brown counter to check out some of their foundations. I haven’t used Bobbi Brown foundations in years, so I wanted to give them another try. What caught my eye was their Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation.
From Bobbi Brown:Oil-free, all-day wear so you’ll have soft-matte, even-looking skin without having to pile on powder throughout the day, this is Bobbi’s soft-matte “sequel” to our (now discontinued) Oil-Free Finish Foundation. Sponge-like powders absorb excess oil on the surface of the skin, while emollients lock in moisture to ensure skin remains perfectly balanced. Transfer-resistant formula helps create a barrier against heat and humidity for 8 hours of wear so makeup stays in place. Perfect for oily and normal/combination skin.
Since I have oily-combination skin this sounded like it would be perfect for me to try out. After a few tries the MUA decided that my color was Warm Natural 4.5. Since I have such a hard time finding the right foundation shade I decided to get a sample rather than buying an entire bottle and returning it if I wasn’t happy with it.
When I first tried it out the color looked a bit too pink, which is my problem with all foundations! But, when I started to blend it out, it matched my skin color perfectly! It blends very easily unlike other long lasting foundations. The one thing that I did notice was that it did not give me enough coverage with just one coat. I had to build it on so that I could get the coverage I like. As for the oil control and long lasting claims, I think it lives up to both. I didn’t find the need to touch up my t-zone as often as I normally do, and it did last all day. It didn’t oxidize or shift on my skin like other foundation would on oily skin. The finish is a semi-matte, and looks a more on the matte side, but without the powdery effect.
If you like a sheer to medium long lasting foundation I would recommend this foundation. It comes in a wide range of shades, 20 in total. So I’m sure most of you won’t have a hard time finding a shade that is right for you. It is packaged in a pretty glass bottle that tends to make the foundation appear a little lighter than it actually is. And here is some great news, it comes with a pump!
Hope this review was helpful!
After doing my last review on Mally Cosmetics one of my readers, Velya, suggested that I try her mascara. I looked into it and ordered mine shortly after. Mally Cosmetics mascara is one of her top sellers. According to Mally, before she made the mascara she used to spend hours (I don’t know about that) using a mascara, brush, pigments and a comb creating her famous clients’ voluminous, long lashes. She finally combined her method and bottled it up to create her Volumizing mascara.
After I received it I quickly washed off my eye makeup and tried this bad boy out. And I have to say that I am impressed! I love the pigmentation, it is one of the darkest mascaras I have tried. The formula is slightly drier and it almost seems like it’s old but it doesn’t apply like so. It doesn’t flake off and lasts for quite some time. After two coats my lashes definitely looked more voluminous. The mascara didn’t really lengthen though, so that was a little disappointing. When I saw her on QVC she said numerous times that if you would keep on applying it, your lashes would look scary long! I didn’t really find that to be true, but I think I may combine a lengthening mascara plus this one to create long, voluminous, gorgeous lashes! The one thing that I have noticed, is that I always seem to get some of this on my lid, this is not a problem I have with other mascaras, so I’m not sure what the deal is!
I totally recommend this mascara if you love thick, dark lashes. I can see why it’s a favorite. You can find this mascara on Mallybeauty.com for $20.00 or QVC.com for $28.00/2. I would go with QVC it’s a better deal!
