New Cosmetics Overhaul

I have been on a cosmetics binge lately and especially with NARS and Urban Decay products. I’ve started to venture out a little more and try a whole range of products. I especially love to share my new treasures with you all so you can decide for yourself if you’d like to try them as well. First off, I never tried any of the NARS lipstick before until recently and let me just tell you, I’m in love with the bright color palette that is available. I’m also on a red lipstick kick (I’m always on some type of kick), so I wanted to try their red.

Red Lizard was first on the list. Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how many compliments I get when I wear this color. It’s smooth, soft and the best part about it? It makes my lips pop! It’s also a red that can go with any complexion and yet still give you those sexy red lips to die for. If that wasn’t enough, I saw their other colors, Schiap and Heat Wave a few days ago in Harpers Bazaar and wanted to try those too. Schiap is one of those pinks that every girl needs in her makeup collection. Like Red Lizard, it has that oomph that just brings out your lips and would probably make any man want to kiss them because they look so amazing. Heat Wave is a cross between a red and tangerine which makes it that perfect blend for anyone who is looking for a semi orange color.

Next up is my Urban Decay fascination and to be honest, I never really had a desire to try the cosmetics products until now and I’m feeling a shopping spree coming soon for this brand. But on to my choices. I like to change my mascaras up only because there is such a variety out there. They have a new mascara out called Perversion|Bigger Blacker Badder. Along with Subversion Lash Primer. Leave it to NARS to have the perfect names for their products. The mascara is everything it claims to be. Absolutely amazing. I thought I was in love with Givenchy, but this mascara takes the cake.  The primer (Subversion) goes on first and then the actual mascara. It lengthens, makes them fuller and definitely blacker. I read that once you tried it, there wouldn’t be another mascara for you. I’m hooked. Another product from Urban Decay which I am extremely satisfied with is their Ink For Eyes eyeliner. First, I was not good with doing eyeliner, until now. This eyeliner goes on smooth, dark and makes it so easy to line the upper and lower lids. I think I’ve mastered the cat eye, which I was never able to do before until now. So that says a lot for an eyeliner to help me and impress me.

The white button down shirt is a classic piece of clothing that has been worn and updated over and over again. Not only are they versatile and can be worn with so many other pieces of clothing such as a classic pencil skirt for work, a pair of tailored pants, or tailored shorts. But the trend today is wearing this classic shirt with a pair of distressed denim jeans and let me tell you, it looks sexy, chic, and hot. Here’s an example of how to get this awesome look:

Lessons From Martha Stewart

9932c74239e31ba27782274466efeb9a

Martha Stewart is the queen DIY, cooking etc., and when it comes to any holiday festivity, her books are the first I go to for help, especially desserts. With that being said, she collaborated with Harpers Bazaar to create a self help video for “Lessons On Being Everything You’re Not”. She is after all, who else could give us such great lifestyle advice? You can watch the video below:

The Best Blue Nail Polishes For Summer

Seriously, summer is really the 2nd best time of the year next to Christmas. Well, correction, 3rd best after Easter! The open toed shoes and manicures galore, we have it all don’t we as women? But when it comes to choosing the best nail color it can be a difficult choice. I don’t know about you, but I am the most indecisive person, not just when it comes to nail colors, but anything in general. Enough about indecisions, lets get back to nails. When you think of summer what is the first thing that comes to mind? I don’t know about you, but the first thing I think about is the beach, deep blue sea water and sand. What goes with summer, sand and deep blue sea water? Magnificent manicured nails with the color of mediterranean waters. So, I shopped for us and found the perfect shades of blue for your next manicure or pedicure. Look below:
