Ok, I admit I have a nail polish addiction so with that said I saw this gorgeous creamy peach color called Purity by Illamasque $14 but when I put it on I was so surprised at how opaque and bright it was. I thought it would be a bit on the nude side but the bottle deceived me. It reminds me of those orange creamsicle push pops when I was a kid. Perfect for Summer! Glad I bought it
In my quest for perfect nails Sally Hansen No More Mistakes $ 4.99 from the local drugstore is a lifesaver. It's easy to use & wipes away any nail polish with little effort, it's foolproof. I like how it has a pointed-angular tip for precise clean-up and includes two extra refillable tips. It's a staple in my manicure kit.
I'm all about eyeliner but Loreal's Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner $7.99 in brown was a disappointment. For some reason I thought that it would be smooth and easy to blend, but the tip was hard and hurt when I applied it to my eye. I had to rub the tip down to soften it enough to use. It did come with a sharpener, but this liner was nothing special.
Lastly, I am really enjoying Rimmel's Scandaleyes Lycra Flex Mascara $6.99 in blackest black. It doesn't clump but still plumps my lashes. The Lycra is supposed to help with flexibility and help curl lashes. I've never seen Lycra in mascara before an an ingredient, so that was cool. The brush was easy to use- I love how "fat" the wand was. Don't expect false like lashes, but it's a decent mascara for the price.
