Fine Finger Friday : O.P.I San Francisco collection

20130816-142038.jpg

I know I’m probably the last person on earth to know about this, better yet blog about it! But this OPI collection!!!

SAN FRANCISCO!

I love San Francisco it’s such a beautiful city with so many beautiful landmarks! And I love it even more because I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This chic little collection includes 15 new OPI shades, 3 of them being liquid sands. The names are super cute to go along with their uber cute colors! Some of my faves to name a few are “it’s all San Andrea’s fault” , ” I knead sour-dough” and ” first date at the golden gate”.

Love love the names they totally speak the heart of San Francisco!

I need to buy a couple of items from this collection! Did anyone buy any? I’d love to know which ones you picked up.

We Love Lashes Wednesday: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I don’t want to age myself but my mascara this Wednesday has been one of my ultimate favs since the early 90s!

Okay sure i was only between the age of 5-10 years old in the early 90’s but I was a little dancing machine with tons of dance competitions and had to wear makeup.

This Maybelline great lash mascara is the best $5 you will probably spend in your life !

It gives you buildable volume without clumping! The brush on this mascara separates like no other!

Best of all it comes in multiple colors like the basic dark brown, black, blackest black. But it also comes In royal blue, and purple, and green different times of the year!

It’s contact lens safe, ophthalmologist tested and only $5!

Below is a photo of my before and after!

Like I’ve said previously Maybelline has got their mascara science down! This will always be one my favorite mascara of all time!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Wet & Wild “Fergie” On Edge Creme Eyeliner

Out of all the topics I post on my blog Tight Wallet Tuesday is my absolute favorite topic! It’s been a little while since I’ve brought you guys one of these! But I’m truly happy that this is one of my comeback post!

This product makes you say MAC fluidline who?! No lies the consistency, the color pay off , the price, the staying power! This doesn’t even give Mac a run for their money it RAN Mac.

This mystery product is Wet and Wild’s “Fergie” creme liner “on the edge”. It comes in black – little black dress and a brown cocoa Riche!

20130730-101623.jpg

So I figured I would buy the brown color because my dip down fluidline from MAC was completely dried out. I was $5 away from free shipping on drugstore.com and this was perfect $4.99!

20130730-101849.jpg

So the jar looks pretty similar to the fluidline packaging shown above! It’s a nice rich brown and it glides on like you would not believe!

20130730-102022.jpg

I promise you this product is long lasting, waterproof, smudge proof and it has a crease resistant finish so you can use it as a base for a bold smokey eye!

And to add to the amazingness it’s not tested on animals!

It’s a 0.10 oz but a little goes an extremely long way! And actually MAC fluidline is the exact same size
At $16! You can buy almost 4 of these for the price of one!

This product will leave you saying MAC fluidline who? $16 for what?

Go out and get it! You’ll love me for it!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Sally Hansen Fuzzy coat

  I was absolutely in love with Nails Inc London Feathers nail polish collection. But, I couldn’t gather myself to pay $9.50 per color although they were uber cute! For one I have tons of nail polish and two I would need all 4 shades! I couldn’t decide! So In other words I would be out of about $40 after taxes!

Image

But to my surprise Sally Hansen launched her identical nail polish top coats! Called Fuzzy Coat. She launched a total of 6 or 7 colors. I bought them on sale at Target for $4.50 each. Which means I got 3 for a little more than $13.00 with tax! Here is the 3 colors I bought!

Image

So if you’re like me and have been loving the Nails Inc Feather collection look check out your local target or CVS and get your fuzzy coat by Sally Hansen. No more than $6 retail price! If you’re lucky you’ll catch a break like I did.

We Love Lashes Wednesday: Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara review

Hi everyone I’m back with another we love lashes Wednesday! The three day weekend totally threw me off and my days were all off! But it is now Wednesday meaning we only have 2 days to the weekend! Yay!
My review today is on Rimmel London’s lash accelerator mascara. When in CVS this totally caught my eye because it is supposed to not only work as a lengthening and volumizing mascara but overtime or their studies show within 30 days your lashes will look 117% longer! Seriously who has ever complained about long lashes! I surely don’t.

20130529-092711.jpg

So here is my before and afters of using this mascara for the first time! I can definitely see the length and volume aspect. I will continue to use this mascara for the next 30 days and keep record to see if it actually helps my lashes grow!
Ill make sure to update you with my progress!

We love lashes Wednesday! No one has ever said they wished
for less lashes! 😉

I am super excited for this line because for one Lora Arellano aka @Loreleicakes on Instagram is an amazing makeup artist , she is absolutely gorgeous and on top of that she is Rhianna’s makeup artist!

Manic Monday: Freeman Feeling Beautiful Purifying Clay Mask Acai

I’ve been gone for a while on an amazing birthday trip to New York but i’m back with another mask review. I figured while unpacking I could throw on a new mask and feed my skin some goodness. So that is exactly what I did. I came across this really inexpensive mask at CVS I believe it was only $3.99. I picked it up because I love Clay masks, I love the idea of them extracting dirt from the pores. And Secondly because it was Acai. We all know the acai is a wonderful antioxidant, and we all know antioxidants fight free radicals so this was a perfect combo for me!

Image

This mask is packed with natural ingredients and not only does it have Acai extract but it includes 
Goji, Pomegranate, Mango, Mangosteen, Cranberry, Noni and Blueberry! The most high packed antioxidant fruits! This is just one amazing fruit basket for the face and it smells just as good too!

It’s main focus is to help with skin damage, soften and brighten the skin.

This can be used two times a week or as often as needed.

Very simple to use: Apply mask to face and neck avoiding the eye area. Let dry, and then rinse with warm water.

Below is a photo with the mask on. I love the consistency of this product it glides on smoothly for a clay mask . Sometimes with a clay mask it’s not as easy to maneuver on the skin this one slipped and slide. 

Image

I wish there was a scratch and sniff feature, because this product smells like fresh fruit heaven.

Image

Here is my Before and After, you can see a little bit of an improvement in brightness. But I can definitely feel the softness of the skin a lot more. For $3.99 this product is totally worth it! It is also a really good mask if you are in a hurry and need a fresh face!

 

Until the next Manic Monday! Have a good week.

Everyone swears by this mascara, and actually I do too! I feel like Maybelline has almost got mascara down to a science! 90% of their mascaras I have tried deliver! Falsies yes this is the deliverer. Long lushes lashes full of life!  They maximize my lashes to the fullest potential ! There is something about that spoon brush that just maximizes my lashes in every aspect without clumping ! 

Here is a photo of my before and after Image

I love me some cost effective mascara that does the job! Because $6 opposed to $30 ill take any day.
