Eyeko Saucy and Rain Nail Polish

Hey y'all!

I received a couple of nail polishes from Eyeko. I was super excited because this is a UK based brand & I already am in love with another of their products, the graffiti pen.

Overall, the polishes are great! I apply about 2-3 coats of polish because 1 coat isn't opaque enough for my taste. The consistency is just right, not too liquidy & not too thick. I've had bad experiences with other polishes like MAC (too thin) or China Glaze (too thick) so it was nice to use a polish that didn't aggravate me LOL! I do need to find a good base coat because I tend to get bumps on my nails after the polish dries :( Suggestion and recommendations are gladly welcome :)

You can find both the Saucy & Rain polishes here. Even though they are a UK based brand, they do sell worldwide! & the packaging of everything is just TOO cute!!!

I added glitter to it because I'm not really a fan of pastel blue... I think it came out pretty :)

P.S. These polishes were provided by Eyeko. I always share my honest opinions about a product, whether sent to my or bought by me. I would not show y'all a product that I didn't think deserved a review, good or bad! :)

Circle Lens Review: Super Nudy Pink Lens from Kiwiberry Collections

Hey y'all!

Here is my video review over a pair of circle lens I received from Kiwiberry. You can compare this lens to the Max Pure Pink Lens I reviewed a while ago. Also, I have a pair of blue circle lens and gray circle lens to review from her site as well so stay tuned for those!

Please visit Kiwiberry Collections webpage!!! She has a wide selection of circle lens and false lashes. Great customer service & she's such a sweetheart :)







Check out the Super Nudy Pink Lens here!
Check out the Criss Cross False Lashes here!

Thank you again Kiwi for these circle lens! Even though the false lashes aren't my personal preference, they are high quality & definitely worthwhile for those who like more natural-looking falsies!

Physicians Formula Contest Entry + Giveaway!!!

Hi y'all!

Physicians Formula contacted me a month or so ago & wanted to see if I'd try out a few of their products. I was super excited to try them out because I've seen their products at Target or most drugstores that I go to & I was always curious about the quality. I just don't buy drugstore makeup (or any makeup really... only when I REALLY want something *cough cough* UD Naked Palette *cough*) because I have SO much already. My crazy MAC addict days have set me for eyeshadows and blushes for a while.

Anywho, I used their custom eye enhancing products to achieve this look. Physicians Formula is hosting a contest & I entered this video (edited for time) into the contest. I would really appreciate it if y'all would vote for me if you liked this tutorial :)

Please click the banner & vote for me!


Also, if you watch the tutorial to the end, you will see that I am giving away 3 sets of the products I used for blue eyes, green eyes, and hazel eyes. The company sent me more products than I actually needed so I wanted to go ahead & give it to y'all so you can try the products out yourself and enter if you like! Be sure to read the contest rules on the Physicians Formula Website click here!

Contest Entry: Bright Mermaid Eyes

Hey y'all!

I LOVE this color combo so decided to use this look for a contest Rosebud143 is hosting on YouTube. (She's one of my fave YouTubers!) I haven't entered into a contest since my old Specktra.net days so this was super duper fun :)

I don't get to play with color very often. Especially since I'm about to enter into the corporate accounting world in a few months, colorful looks aren't really suitable. It felt so good to get back to my roots :) I hope y'all like it!

Btw, I went picture happy... >,<
