My Thoughts- Recently I had went on Sephora and found these Sequined Manicure Nail Kits by Ciaté and fell in LOVE!

Monday Makeup Favorite - Classic Mid-tone/Bright Red Lips

(Photo- Blake Lively)
 
So Red is a color every woman should try no matter if you are on the fair or deep side for skin complexions. Weather you are using a lip liner, lipstick, lipgloss, lipstain, or lip balm RED is just gorgeous. Now you do have to find a shade that matches perfect on you but I believe mid-tone bright reds look perfect on anyone exactly. Also I love Matte Red lips, I dont think shimmer is really a need when wearing this color. So there's my Monday Makeup Favorite. XO Andrea

ELF Cosmetics Studio Conditioning Lip Balm (Review)


 For $3, not a bad buy at all! The packaging to these lip balms are very sleek and isnt hard to open like some of the other products that ELF has to offer. I think these are very creamy and best used when applied with a lip brush. They are highly pigmented especially Peaceful Pink, Nice and Natural is good color for anyone of any skin complexion and Mellow Melon is just that must have "Pucker Color". These balms also have spf which is great if you are wearing this almost everyday to give you perfect lip protection. Now they dont have a bad smell at all and they dont taste like anything to me. Overall its glossy, NOT drying and comes in an array of colors, well just 3 which is better than just one. Do you like these?? At the end check out my overall review at the end of this post! XO Andrea



                                                                          (L-R Nice and Natural, Peaceful Pink and Mellow Melon)




Overall Review:

*Brand- ELF (Eyes Lips Face) Cosmetics / www.eyeslipsface.com
*Price- $3
*Best Use- When Applied with Lip Brush
*Rating- 5 out 5
*Would I Buy Again?- YES!

Fall/Winter Nails 2012- Purples and Teals Along With Gold Glitter and Hunter Green


For this season and the next I LOVE deep colors and also sparkly colors although spring and the summer are my favorite seasons. My favorite for this time of year are deep teals and hunter greens but year around I always wear purples and gold glitter. The teal and green make any outfit look dramatic just because its a deeper color which I like and purple is my favorite color so thats an all year long color I wear with again just about anything and if you want something really glam and make your look pop always use a glittery color not necessarily gold if you don't like the color of course but you have multi glitter, black glitter, purple glitter, red glitter, silver glitter ect. every color in the book has a glitter shade by almost any nail brand. So I hope you loved my nail picks for the Fall/Winter season! XO Andrea.

Happy Monday! So for this weeks Monday Makeup Favorite it's Bronzey Smokey Eye, this look can be worn day or night and just attracts a glow to your skin no matter what. It isnt too much and it isnt too overdone like other looks and almost any skintone can pull this off. This eye look just screams GLAM is a must for the upcoming holidays and it will go with any outfit you choose! Have a Great Day. -XO Andrea
