Happy Thirsty Thursday Hunnies. I filmed this GRWM (Get Ready With Me) look on Tuesday… I’m a bit late getting it up, however… the actual video before editing was an hour long. lol Purple & Golds are some of my favorite eye makeup looks and I am really loving the Bronze Shimmer Powder from Mica Beauty to create this look. Funny thing is… it’s called bronze but looks like a peachy goldish color. I absolutely love it and I swear I will be using it all up if I don’t learn to pace myself. lol So – come and chit chat with me and watch me Get Ready while I create this look. I love it, how about you? More photos as well as the Video is listed below – check it out! <3

The photo above (with brown background) was taken first thing after I did the look, but as you can tell… they were taken in harsh lighting… so it really washed out the boldness of the color on my eyes.
The photo above was taken a few hours after the second set of photos… the color is slightly fading… but the blush is still visible, loving this blush… and my eye color still visible. But this was taken about 8 hours after I applied my makeup originally. Don’t you just love that lip color, I haven’t reapplied all day. I have done a test and will have the review up soon – so stay tuned. That’s it for the looks loves… thanks for joining me.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Everyone knows that IDK from China Glaze is quite possibly one of my most favorite nail polishes – EVER. I have a huge love for purple… and have my fair share of purple polishes, but this one just catches my fancy and it’s been a favorite of mine for quite a few years.
I have tried quite a bit of color combination and design combinations with IDK, but never really anything with black or white I am ashamed to say. After picking up my Maybelline Clear Spotted Polka Dot polish from the Color Collection… I decided that I wanted to really do something fun with it. This nail polish look was quick and I did enjoy doing it. It’s fun and definitely something I will rock in different colors using the same type of design.

I have searched NYX’s Website as well as a few other sites and have not seen these anywhere except for Cherryculture.com ($3.00). I do not know if NYX has discontinued these but they are still available at some CVS locations and they were recently stocked in my area.
I paid about $3.99 for each one – which in my opinion is a little more costly than I would like to spend for such a little amount of product and packaging that is pretty basic, but I was willing to do so to try out a product from one of my favorite drug store brands.
I only purchased two shades: Spasibo (neutral color) and Xie Xie (pinkish red tone). Both of them to me are pretty universal shades so it is easy for me to use all the time and not be so selective.
Xie Xie is a Strawberry type color but soft on the strawberry, as if you mixed a creme into it. I like it because even if it can be a bright color – it is still very wearable for all day every day use.
Spacibo is very nude on me, as you can see from the swatch above, but it shows up on my lips nicely and looks like a nice nude lipstick.
These Lip Balms, while moisturizing only have a color/tint and moisturizing capabilities. They are not known or possess gloss type capabilities and if you are looking for a glossy look, you may have to apply actual clear gloss over them. While they did moisturize my lips, it was not something long term and application to remoisturize was definitely required. I also noticed that a day or so later… my lips felt dry even if exfoliated and moisturized with my normal routine.
These lip balms do move more than what I am used to. When you eat or drink or if you like to lick or lips, etc. – you can expect it to smear. I think these may have a tad bit too much mineral oil in them and if you are one like me that are not huge on that – this may not appeal to you.
All in all – I liked these products… they were pretty okay but I still think they could use some work considering they are NYX products and haven’t held up to the brand standard. I do think they are just too expensive in my local stores and while I do get that they need to keep with the cost of living… it is not worth it. I will not be purchasing anymore unless they are on discount.
Sparkle rating… 3.7 – 4.0 – probably more towards 3.7
Hope you guys enjoyed this review.
